Character Meme: Maes Hughes
Tagged by if_i_had_you**

1. Do you like this character?

Yes. He was a fun, complex character to portray, and also I'd like one of these in my life plz.

2. What name/s do you call this character?

Hughes. That's all I've ever called him. *shrug*

3. What image-color do you associate with this character?

If we're keeping this simple, then white. But if you want me to go all deep with it, I'd say that weird iridescent sort of gray that tarnished silver turns when you start to polish it and it's not black anymore but it's not quite 100% clean but you can see the shine starting to peek through. Yeah, it's not really a color, but that's the sort of thing I think of.

4. What image-song do you associate with character?

I know this isn't character-specific, but I still can't think of anything FMA related without having to listen to "Ready Steady GO" really loud. And I didn't even watch the dub. Hell, I never even watched the ending. Anyway, I probably did have a character-specific song, maybe, I dunno, it's been like 5 years.

5. What blood-type do you think this character is?

I actually used to know this. I have no idea, and I don't feel like looking it up. O maybe? I really don't know.

6. What character do you like to put this character with?

I really love him with Roy. He gets really mad if I try to push him into anything romantic with Roy in the "present" but he rather enjoys it in flashbacks and AU stuff where he doesn't have a wife and daughter. Even in non-romantic settings he's really at his best when he's with Roy. But he is the first to protest that within the confines of the canon-time storyline Roy is nothing more than his best friend, and he loves Glacia and would never do anything to jeopardize his relationship with her. You can't know who he is without knowing how he feels about Elysia, and in my head I've also had some interesting interactions with her (AU of course... ;__;).

7. What would you want to say to this character?

Honestly, I think he'd have a lot more to say to me than I would to him.

8. Which do you want to do with this character: Shake hands, hug, or kiss?

Hug, definitely.

9. Please choose 5 friends with your choice of character.

Nah, I don't do tagging. I doubt I know 5 people associated with characters.

**Before I go answering all of these, let me just say that I had nearly completely forgotten about this character. Then I was tagged for this, and was thinking about whether or not to do it, reading over things I wrote as him, and it was like he just popped up again, out of the dark recesses of my mind, and said "Hi there!! Did you miss me? XD" This has, in turn, had a rather strange emotional effect on me that I can't really quantify just yet. Thinking about him again makes me feel kinda warm and fuzzy inside, really. And makes me wanna watch the first half of FMA again. Maybe I'll do that. (Also, I'm aware that userpic is Havoc, but it's the only one I haven't deleted of the FMA ones I used to have)

I really miss playing as your Roy. :D Those were excellent times. ♥

I was worried that you might not want to answer this meme, as...well, you know. A lot of stuff happened back then. But I'm happy to see what you think of him now.

Yeah, now that I remember where the plot was going and everything we had planned, I'm disappointed that we didn't get to finish it.

The Hughes in the back of my mind is also a little irritated that I woke him up and the only other person in my head he knows is Havoc. ^_~

Yeah. Actually, a few weeks ago I went and read through the manga, and it was surprising as to how close we could have been to the original canon...five years ago. Save for giving you spoilers, the Gate we had going on along with the new monster was pretty danged close, without associating the monster to an actual person (a.k.a. a new homunculus). I wish we had been able to finish that plotline, but...things happened, and the game died. I don't even remember very clearly what it was, if it was us, or...

...but anyway, I can most definitely relate to the grumpy!muse situation you're having. Roy doesn't react well to being woken up in the first place, and after five years? "Not a morning person" doesn't even start to describe his reaction. XD

As I recall, it was at least partially that some people were difficult to reach, and that on the whole most of us weren't happy with the way the anime went off the deep end, so to speak. It seems like most of the major characters had some serious RL stuff going on as well... The last post was one of ours, so I'm relatively certain it wasn't us. ^_~

I'm pretty sure it's Hughes keeping me up at night, the past couple of days, too... ¬¬
