Pic of Roy doing housework (badly)  
Here is a picture of Roy struggling to cut carrots and potatoes. XD
I believe this picture is from one of the FMA novels. I found it at a chinese FMA forum. Enjoy! XD

Well, more like he'd burn everything to a crisp.

Roy: But at least it's well done! No risk of food poisoning HERE!

Ed: No risk of that being FOOD.

In my opnion, this is an image of Roy before he became a state alchemist and joined the military...

He must've been stuck at home doing chores like these all day... might've been the reason he left... ;)

*Or* The sensei Roy had before he took the State Alchemy exam liked having him cut up vegetables and shred his hands cuz he sucks handling knives? (I'm safe to assume that all State Alchemists usually took up a sensei before they took their exam to help them pass all those friggen tests and help them figure out what their speciality would be... right?)

Or this could just be some AU weirdness where Roy was forced to be a slave wearing Loafers and nice slacks, and he was being bad and was forced to go peel stuff outside... and cut himself a lot... yeah...

*my imagination is weird... XD*

Erm, actually, it is an illustration from one of the novels, and Roy sucks at doing housework in general, now AND before. It's a canon fact. Part of his character. Like how he collects paper clips >.>

Does the novels ever explained WHY Roy collects papar clips?
Marikaitou_marina on May 24th, 2005 04:12 pm (UTC)
Because he's Roy? Because he's a spaz? It's a great mystery!

I dunno, I've never read them personally, not fluent enough in Japanese. Just relying on info I've heard. Anyone else wanna take a stab at this one?

*takes a stab*

Because the little OCD child in Roy's brain has chosen paperclips to be the insignificant object of collection.

Perhaps he wishes to build himself a paperclip-man army?

Perhaps he has an evil motive to hold every paperclip in Central hostage in return for Furhurship (please, someone spell 'furhur' right for me... it's the worst word I swear)...

Perhaps he is sculpting a large paperclip sculpture that involves magnets?

Perhaps he wishes to create his own automail arm using paperclips?

Perhaps he wishes to create a device made *soley* out of paperclips that he will use to deconstruct Ed's arm and make him bend to his will a little more?

Perhaps Arakawa-sensei just thought one day, "Gee, Roy needs a bizzare quirk... *stares at her desk, and picks up a paperclip* I think he'll be a paperclip collector now!" *uses her mighty manga-ka powers to make it canon*

THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW! (or at least until someone has a definate, canon reason as to why)

That's one for the list of what not to do in the military. ^^; "Colonel Roy Mustang is under no circumstances to be trusted with sharp objects."

ah! So cute! Which volume was that?
Miss Kitty Fantasticacougarfang on May 25th, 2005 07:43 am (UTC)
The fourth one. ^^ (I just finished reading it today, after letting it sit for a couple of months... *horrible procrastinator*)

I love how Roy's hands are all covered in bandaid-tape-things... XD Poor guy, ouch.
(To make up for his horrible housework skills, though, he is very good at collecting eggs from henhouses. *consoles poor Roy*)
ex_rong on May 25th, 2005 08:05 pm (UTC)
ah thanks! Didn't know that there was such a scene.. shall look it up. =)
