Set Fire to the Rain ~ Royai Day Special FST  
Here is my Promised fanmix,under the cut!
This year's theme is "What I love most about Roy,Riza and Royai"
This is my second time celebrating the day and this mix is my first contribution in it.Sorry for errors and mistakes <3


Listen this song while reading the post

++First of all thanks to my friend,Selva for the front covers.In the file that you'll download there are 7 more of them.She wanted me to choose the cover but I found all of them worth to add.Also Selva,START TO FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST.IT'S WORTH IT AND YOU'RE MISSING ALL THE FUN (isn't that true guys?)
Back cover is made by me and it's painfully obvious <.< Sorry pals,sorry... ;___;
Another thanks,my dear LJ friend [info]jellyjay who gave me support and useful advices.Love you !!  <3
And thanks to Roy and Riza for giving me imaginative toughts and thanks to Hiromu Arakawa-sensei for creating them.
The last thanks,the artists in this FST their songs are the reason why I'm doing this after all.Keep doing good music!

+++If you have iPhone,iPod etc. I made some organizations.They all have lyrics in them (Rain also has translation) and I put randomly fanmix's covers and put them under the same album for your sake.I was going to make song covers as manga panel's but sucks to be a student,I gave up.If it have errors please let me know.

Set Fire to the Rain ~ Track List

1. Love is A Losing Game ~Amy Winehouse

"Elizabeth is taken away by another man" - Roy Mustang chap. 62

For you I was a flame
Love is a losing game
Five story fire as you came
Love is a losing game
Self professed... profound
Till the chips were down
...know you're a gambling man
Love is a losing hand

Okay so first song is by Amy Winehouse.Why I put this? Because I do love her (oh surprising)  voice but another reason is,I always imagined she was singing this son in Madam's bar during that scene. I wanted one of her songs in this fst but sadly,none of her song is made for them.Except this.Drink more Roy!

2. No Air ~ Glee Cast ( Finn & Rachael)

"...What  will you do after I'm dead...?"
"I'll plan on flame alchemy,an art bring about madness,to bring grave along with my body."
"I can't lose you!"
Chapter 95

But how do you expect me
to live alone with just me
'Cause my world revolves around you
It's so hard for me to breathe

Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gonna be without me
If you ain't here, I just can't breathe
It's no air, no air

Well,this was kinda my brain's auto-reply to Roy's question.I didn't put the original version because I think a fictional couple singing for another fictional couple is more interesting.And you know,Finchael is canon at the moment (don't really care if it's the end game or not)

3. Kings & Queens ~ 30 Seconds to Mars

 We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell
Heaven and Hell

Into your eyes
Hopeless and taken
We stole our new lives
Through blindness
In defense of our dreams
In defense of our dreams

Should I need to add why this song? Actually,I was planning on explain every song but I can't type anything at the moment.All I can say,it was going to be "Hurricane" instead of this song but I saw it in another fanmixes so I decided not to.

4. Dashboard ~ Modest Mouse
Well, it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.
Oh, the dashboard melted, but we still have the radio.

Oh, it should've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.
Well, you told me about nowhere well it sounds like someplace I'd like to go.
Well we scheme and we scheme but we always blow it
We've yet to crash, but we still might as well tow it
Standing at a light switch to each east and west horizon,
Every dawn you're surprising,
and in the evening one's consoling
Saying "See it wasn't quite as bad as"
Well, it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.

Because I love the fact that they NEVER give up.They ALWAYS and ANYTIME have back up plans.And this song makes our FST less depressing!

5. Collect Call ~ Metric
I know its a lie, I want it to be true
The rest of the ride is riding on you
Over goodbyes we'll buy some place

For wishing you could
Keep me closer, I'm a lazy dancer, when you move I move with you

I'm a total fangirl for Metric,and this song is totally made for them.It explains beautifully how they move together and how much they're strong when they're together.They barely separetes even Edward said it so!

6. Black & Gold ~ Sam Sparro
'cause if you're not really here
then the stars don't even matter
now i'm filled to the top with fear
that it's all just a bunch of matter

'cause if you're not really here
then i don't want to be either
i wanna be next to you
black and gold
black and gold
black and gold

i looked up into the night sky
and see a thousand eyes staring back
and all around these golden beacons
i see nothing but black

Because we all know that he wants to make top with her,not by himself.Oh and nice implication with Black & Gold >:D

7. Violet Hill ~ Coldplay

"Please tell me, Major. Why are soldiers, who ought to protect citizens, killing them instead? Why is alchemy, which ought to bring happiness to the people, being used for murder?"
- Riza Hawkeye chap.  59

 I took my love down to violet hill
There we sat in the snow
All that time she was silent still

So if you love me
Won't you let me know?

This is for Ishbal!Royai.And when I listen this song,everytime I hear her voice asking this during the "So if you love me,Won't you let me know?" line.

8. Sometimes (I Wish) ~ City & Colour

If I was a simple man,
Would we still walk hand in hand?
And if I suddenly went blind,
Would you still look in my eyes?
What happens when I grow old?
And all my stories have been told?
Will your heart still race for me?
Or will it march to a new beat?
If I was a simple man

If I was a simple man,
I’d own no home, I’d own no land
Would you still stand by my side?
And would our flame still burn so bright?

Because he isn't a simple man and he'll never be.And we all love him because of this.

9. Starlight ~ Muse

"...There will be no going back if we fail.And such,I have one order and you'll obey it
: DON'T DIE." chapter 87
"I'm sorry! Thank youuuu!!" - Roy Mustang , Chapter 101.


Far away
This ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care
if I live or die

I will be chasing a starlight
Until the end of my life
I dont know if
it’s worth it anymore

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to
Hold you in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to re-ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

I’ll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away...

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

First,I think Muse ships Royai.Second this song is perfect.It's an amazing point how this song shows even though they're mature,their feelings for each other is so pure in deep.When Matthew says  "I've just wanted to hold you in my arms" you can feel all the innocent ,pure feelings,the love.You can feel how much Roy was innocent when he hugged her.This song is perfect and to beginning to ending it explains Royai's relationship and the journey they're making together perfectly  well.

10.Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever) ~ Muse


 I was searching
You were on a mission
Then our hearts combined like
A neutron star collision

I have nothing left to lose
You took your time to choose
Then we told each other
With no trace of fear that...

Our love would be forever
And if we die
We die together
And lie, I said never
'Cause our love would be forever

The world is broken
Halos fail to glisten
You try to make a difference
But no one wants to listen

The preachers, fake and proud
Their doctrines will be cloud
Then they'll dissipate
Like snowflakes in an ocean

Love is forever
And we'll die, we'll die together
And lie, I say never
'Cause our love could be forever

This song is like Royai's anthem,I mean it starts with Riza saving Roy in Ishbal and goes on.This was going to be FST's name but sadly I found Adele's "that song".

11. Lovesong ~ Adele

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

Because only they can see each other behind their masks,and they can understand each other better than anyone.And that's why it's Royai.And that's why we love it.

12. Set Fire to the Rain ~ Adele

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell, you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me
My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you'd say
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

When I lay with you I could stay there,
Close my eyes, feel you here forever,
You and me together, nothing is better!
Cause there’s a side to you that I never knew, never knew,
All the things you'd say they where never true, never true,
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win.

But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
well it burnt while I cried,
Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!
but I set fire to the rain
and I threw us into the flames
well it felt something died
Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

Royai isn't something you can explain with plain words.You can totally deny it is there or you can feel "something is going on".Like this song.When I saw the name of the song I was like "OH DEAR GOD,THAT NAME." But when I read the lyrics,I was quite disappointed.Then my brain started to working and I saw "it".Can we say Riza's feelings at pre-manga?Maybe.That's all up to you.Like Royai.I love this song and probably it's my favourite in this fanmix.

13.Blindness ~ Metric
Find us a trapdoor, find us a plane
Tell the survivors help is on the way
I was a blindfold, never complained
All the survivors singing in the rain
I was the one with the world at my feet
Got us a battle, leave it up to me

What it is and where it stops nobody knows
You gave me a life I never chose
I wanna leave but the world won't let me go
Wanna leave but the world won't let me go

This kinda a bonus song from one of my favourite bands.I love Roy a lot because he was still a badass despite to his blindness in final battle.And as the song says "he never complained".It is kinda about how they forced him to make human transformation and how he stood up despite his inabilities.

14. Rain ~ SID

June’s lies and the truth in front of my eyes are put away in sepia tones
Nestling close to one another, warmth; I don’t understand those things anymore

“You’ll be fine on your own… right?” you said, forcing it upon me and then you said goodbye
If it’s going to be that kind of consolation then I should be tired of hearing it by now

Endlessly ringing; the merciless memories seem to have no intention of forgiving me
If i close my eyes they will only grow surrounding me at a distance you laugh

Will the rain ever stop, I wonder? For a pretty long time now it’s been cold
Why does the rain choose me? Why does it choose me who has nowhere to escape to?

Aaaaaand our last song! FMA's last opening yes.So should we explaing why? The idea came from my friend jacksparrow from fma-forums,thanks to her.

And thank you for reading all of this! I hope I succeeded my first time.I'm planning on doing more FSTs because it's fun! (And next time I'll prepare the post early,I feel like I forgot something now)

No problem at all! It's on my music player now, so it's on my to-listen list both on and off the comp.! xD

Hehe, and same to you too. . o.
For some reason, that last thing you said reminded me of the "Real Fans of Genius" videos Vic had on his youtube page. xD

You have no idea how much my heart ached when I cut Resistance out of fanmix,I had to choose between Starlight and Resistance...And Reistance is very well known by the fandom so I decided to put Starlight (with dedicating it to "famous hug scene" *o* )

Can we just say Muse is Royai's official band and will sing for them in their weddings? *getsshotforheadcanon*
