roy mustang + winry rockbell
We have enough fans, and fanart now to justify a great little Tumblr page to Roywin!

Check it out here :

Also! For more unpopular FMA pairings, check out the aptly named Tumblr page: 

Thanks to them, I found the lovely new Roywin fanart pictured here!

When I created this fansite it was to seek out and collect the best WinRoy works out there, mainly to prove the validity of such a controversial pairing in the world of anime fanfiction and art. So far, it seems to be working out. :)

Many don't understand it, however, those who are serious, and read a well-done RoyXWinry tale, come out as addicts to this coupling.

Personally,  I fell in love with the idea of this pairing after watching "The Conqueror of Shamballa". I saw the opportunity, and ended up loving the idea that these two lonely individuals could share something special together, after all of the hardships they went through. Redemption, fate, irony, angst, regret, desperation, lust, and the fine line between love and hate are the prime sources for a WinRoy story. how can you resist all that!?

I agree with my fellow WinRoy author, RowenVelvet, that there has been a nice resurgence and awareness of this pairing recently and we LOVE IT.
It's funny, my inspiration for RoyWin comes in surges as well, sometimes I want to read other mediums, or write about other pairings (like my foray into LxMisa) but the urge to write WinRoy always comes back, and that's when I spend a whole night typing away until 3am, just to get it all out of my system.There is always something "magical" and endearing about this pairing, and I am delighted to see so many new fans agreeing with us! 

Hello everyone! 
RowenVelvet's "Penance" has added chapters 3 & 4 to her epic RoyWin tale! Enjoy the ongoing suspense, and fun of this lovely AU / Continuation. 

Here is a quick link to the fic:

On a side note: I have almost completed the long-awaited Chapter 10, and ALMOST finished reading and beta-ing a new RoyWin fic. Busy busy, but it looks like our shippers are growing in numbers! :)
Chaper 2 of RowenVelvet's "Penance" is up for your reading pleasure, fellow Winroyfiles!  Oh yes....the plot thickens, my friends. ;)

Drum roll please.....

I have been beta-reading and waiting for this fantastic piece of RoyWin fiction to come out! 

And it's finally here!!!  RowenVelvet's "Penance" brings a whole new point of view to the RoyWin story, we love to ship.  I don't want to give much away, but you will find plenty to love about this unique (yet familiar) story. I will be posting each chapter here on the fanfic blog, with further reviews of each.  

I must say that reading this fic was a lot of fun, and I am so happy to see more authors taking an interest in this pairing. 

Beyond the angst, RowenVelvet really managed to convey what this pairing is all about, keeping the characters true to themselves, and making it work. 

Enough chit-chat, time to READ!!! :)

"Penance" by RowenVelvet

I am extremely pleased and excited to have found this author's work on the LJ RoyXWinry community. Camudekyu's writing style and prose is absolutely refreshing to read in a sea of half-assed fanfiction. I have basically fallen in love with this beautiful and well written story. Honestly, I think it's my favorite RoyWin fic thus far.

The story takes place after the CoS film. And isn't that just the BEST timing for most RoyWin fiction? I believe that in most cases, when an author uses this particular  time period and setting in the FMA world (post-CoS), it creates a much more convincing story for this particular pairing.

The story is filled with angst, romance, and true sincerity. It feels genuine and haunting. However, it is not overpowering with its sentiments. The angst is not overbearing, and the romance is not cliche'. This author knows how to portray this pairing and understands the chemistry (we shippers see) between them. The tone of the story is nostalgic and truly captures the "era" in which FMA takes place.  All I can say to the author is ...THANK YOU. WE LOVE YOU. DON'T STOP WRITING. LIKE.EVER.

Enough talk and praise. HERE is this little gem's link:
