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! 

 
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:  http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6371250/1/The_Lotus_Eaters


 
Generally speaking, most One-Shots are pretty lame. However, Julia G.D. has completely changed my expectations when I read this extraordinarily well written little gem! In just a few paragraphs of "Just Are", the author has managed to get the essential "magic" of Roy and Winry.

It is set after CoS (which is the best setting for this pairing). Desperation, hope, chemistry, loneliness, and a new sense of purpose is demonstrated in this work. This is what Roy X Winry is about! Julia G.D. can you please write us an epic for this pairing!?
