Roy Mustang/Edward Elric (or RoyEd) is a ship in Fullmetal Alchemist fandom.
Due to the age gap in the canon narrative, the ship has garnered some negative feedback, enough for Tumblr users to write posts defending the ship. Nevertheless, it is the most popular ship in the Fullmetal Alchemist - All Media Types tag on Archive of Our Own.
Some common tropes in RoyEd fanworks include:
- Son of the Desert by ShanaStoryteller, an AU where Ed and Al are half-Ishvalan.
- A Terrifying Clamour of Trumpets by ShanaStoryteller, a fix-it fic set in an 03/Brotherhood fusion universe.
- You and Your Fuck Awful Timing, or Five Things Ed Learned from Roy but Would Never Admit to If You Asked Him Point Blank by lightgetsin, a five things fic that spans from before they get together through to an established relationship by the end of the fic.
- Play to Win by lightgetsin. Ed loses his virginity, and then his inhibitions. Roy loses his mind.
- The Leading the Blind series by Tierfal, a Brotherhood AU where Roy is still blind after the Promised Day.
- The Loud and Clear series by Tierfal, a coffee shop AU where Ed is a graduate student/barista and Roy is a lawyer.
- Tap That by Tierfal, a college AU where Roy is Ed's TA.
- Hard Reset by applecrumbledore, a future fic showing Roy and Ed's friendship/developing relationship 15 years post-Brotherhood.
