Roy and Izumi?  
Is anyone else STOKED that we are finally going to resolve the Roy/Izumi sibling question?  Wanna place some bets?

I've never heard that one before...

Has there been some suggestion of this? I miss stuff sometimes, so maybe, but I'm rockin' the 'huh?' right now...

There had been one discussion before... since someone had noticed they both had some resemblance to each other.

We're gonna resolve it? o.O What makes us think this?
live4him4evalive4him4eva on November 10th, 2009 06:10 pm (UTC)
Oh, that they will meet? Oh, well that's no guarantee either way. No promises they will recognize each other and such. Plus, it would be kinda weird to bring it up then.
"Oh hey, our country is in imminent danger and such. ...Wait a minute, aren't you my sister?"

I'm with ibshafer. Has there been talk of this theory being confirmed/busted?

Although I personally like it, so I hope it turns out to be true. XD

Well, good. Now I don't feel so silly for asking.

You mean people actually thought this might be true? WHAT? Why?

INORITE? I thought it was a joke, because, seriously, Arakawa wouldn't shove in something so superfluous this late in the series.

I never even knew there was a debate over this. o.O

Yup.. it was noted that Roy and Izumi, in the manga at least, look remarkably similar. Especially when Roy has his hair slicked back.

I think I read like one fic about it. Maybe two? It hasn't been suggested that many times, but hey. They do look like each other, although that of course could just be the same ethnic heritage. And the way Izumi hates the military seems really personal, as in a you-corrupted-my-baby-brother way. And given that difference of opinion, they would definitely be alienated from each other, which would explain why it hasn't even come out before.

As for the circumstances, I could see a sort of "oh, it's you" exchange between Roy and Izumi, and then Ed saying "the hell, you know each other?" And then the revelation.

Ok, ok, so it's cracktastic. But it would be freaking cool. I'm envisioning a shot where they both turn to Ed and simultaneously say "She's/he's my brother/sister" with identical expressions on their faces, and then we'll all say "How could we ever have doubted!" And Arakawa does inject humor even into really serious situations.

I'm not saying it's likely. BUT IT WOULD BE AWESOME. Just think, their two protectors! Related all along! Arakawa with that in her back pocket for 101 chapters. Dude. Mighty.

Siblings or not, seeing Izumi and Mustang fighting back to back would be beyond epic.

LOL I haven't heard this one for a looong time.

It would be hilarious if it was there, but... I highly doubt it will be. Highly, highly doubt it.

While the whole idea makes for some fun crack, there has been absolutely nothing foreshadowed in the story to even hint at such a possibility. Izumi's extreme loathing of the military just isn't enough, IMO.

Although... Someone mentioned Roy and Izumi fighting back to back? OhHELZyeah! That would be a blast to see! (literally!)

wow, that's news to me, but i can see where that came from. never really thought about it, but i guess it's possible.
lost_variable: FMA: Olivia Armstronglost_variable on November 10th, 2009 08:24 pm (UTC)
I think it would be interesting, but I think that having it come out of no where would seem off. I mean there's no hint at all that they're related.

Regardless to the speculation, who would be able to prove such a theory?
flybynight00flybynight00 on November 10th, 2009 10:03 pm (UTC)
Arakawa. Arakawa would be able to prove that theory, when Roy and Izumi reveal it in chapter 102, of course! XP

As to the Madam Christmas thing, Izumi is probably, say, fifteen years older than Roy? Even if he was adopted when he was only three or four, Izumi would be old enough to be out on her own. (Especially since it's Izumi, hell she could probably have survived on her own when she was a damn toddler.)

The coming out of nowhere argument: given Izumi's feelings about the military, I imagine she and Roy probably would've fallen out so badly that they wouldn't even be willing to mention each other's names. And because of the whole Izumi probably not being around much when he was a kid -- when he was growing up in Central with military power everywhere -- it wouldn't be surprising they could end up with such different beliefs.

I'm totally aware this is kind of nuts. But it's fun to talk about! It would be cool!
