Ling and Lan Fan by rosesmusings Ling and Lan Fan by rosesmusings
Just a doodle.
The 7th of July is, apparently, Ling/Lan Fan Day?
I didn't quite have the time to come up with anything too detailed, unfortunately. :(

I'm still working on finishing my commissions and I hope to have them up within the next week or so!

I didn't even knew that there were these "shipping days"... Great idea though, thanks to fandom for realizing it :) I just wonder why they celebrate it on this day, not another. Maybe at this day huge hint appeared in manga?

And about the pic - it's really cute! I really love pencil arts. And characters are worth drawing! Especially Ling. Ling = empty fridge & loooooong bill :lol:

I know EdWin is specifically on 5/03 - as 503 is the fandom code for EdWin. (Apparently, in Japan, there is a jeans company called Edwin and their most popular line of clothing is their "503" brand of jeans.)
The nickname stuck and became so popular in the fandom that Arakawa actually included the number on the door of Winry's hotel room, at one point. (It's also included in the anime.) [link] [link]
As for 7/7 being Ling/Lan Fan day - it coincides pretty closely with Tanabata, the Japanese star festival. It has its roots in the Chinese Qi Xi Festival, though.
Xing is kind of the FMA equivalent of China, so Tanabata/Qi Xi may play a role, there?
Also, 7/7 might be based upon the similar look of characters in their portmanteau couple name in Japanese: リンラン "LingFan".
I'm not very sure, though. ^^;
I have no idea why Royai Day is on 6/11, however. XD Ack, and sorry for the ramble! :blush:

Hahahah I... I find Ling's expression both great and also amusing because he's just kinda standing there, looking awesome and knowing it. And that is always amusing to me. And of course Lan Faaaaan. :heart:

Haha 7-7-07 was my official Demon Lord Day :D

It doesn't sound so cool when it's 7-7-11 :p

Really cool pic btw! Though I thought Lanfan was taller :)

Thank you! ^^ Haha, actually, by the end of the series, I believe Ling is a bit taller - so Lan Fan appears somewhat shorter.

It was necessary to inform them of it to be earlier.

Is there a calendar or something that lists all the pairing days? Because apparently I missed Royai Day.
Reply
:iconrosesmusings:
rosesmusings Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not that I know of? Most of the time, someone will announce upcoming festivals a week or so beforehand on Pixiv? I know that Ed/Winry is fixed as May 3rd (5/03), Roy/Riza is June 11th and, of course, Ling/Lan Fan is July 7th. (There's also a post for it here on dA - [link])
I'm not sure on any other pairing days, though.
Reply
:iconrathika:
Rathika Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011
So, going by that logic, the NEXT pairing I support would have its day some time early-mid August... can we declare August 4 to be Havoc/Maria Day?
