Rating: PG for language and mentions of general American obtuseness of the somewhat non-PC variety.
Characters/Pairings: America, mentions of England and others. No pairings.
Warnings: Language, American exceptionalism, assorted historical situations.
Summary: America thinks he's always been tough. A look at American history--from America's perspective.
Disclaimer: None of them are mine.
Notes: This is extremely America-centric, mainly because it's from America's perspective, and well, he's America. I want to reiterate that the voice in this story is just that, a narrative voice, and does not reflect my own personal political views--it's my honest attempt at portraying what I believe to be a firm strain of individualism and self-focused independence throughout the history of the United States as a part of the character of Hetalia's America. The title is from Woody Guthrie's folk song, "This Land is Your Land." The link below is a fake cut to my journal.
