[Convention] Kitacon, UK

Hi. So, I didn't know if anyone had posted about the Northampton anime convention, Kitacon Fri 26-Sun 28 March. Couldn't see it, unless it was tagged as something NOT events or cosplay.

So... is anyone else going? I know there's a meet up, being organised on the forums, but I wondered if anyone from here was attending? I think there's like 2 tickets left [on their site] if you still want to go!

Anyway, I mainly wanted to give those who were going a heads up that I'll have A LOT of Hetalia merchandise in the Bring & Buy. So, yes, this is kind of a shameless plug because I have no money. Stuff available can be found in [this post] on my journal. I'm NOT taking any more hold/reservations/sales until Kitacon is over. But if you REALLY SUPER want something PM me and I'll see. Or you can wait.

Hope to see some people from the comm there!

Some Fanmade Songs I Found

So I found some really cute fanmade Spain/Romano songs on Youtube, so I thought I'd post them here because:

1. They're pretty freaking adorable and I thought that whoever hadn't heard them yet should hear them.
2. It would be absolutely fabulous if someone would be able to translate these. I've been dying to know what the lyrics mean.

So, anyway, here are the links:

By the way, these are not mine in anyway shape or form.

The crazy cousin next door, or totally unrelated neighbor?

Random thought. Obviously, in Hetalia canon, some countries are "blood" related to each other (Prussia and Germany, Canada and America, Belarus, Ukraine and Russia, etc.) while others form family units (England & his colonies, etc.)

Do you think there would be the possibility that some countries are "cousins" instead? Related, but not as close as siblings?

The one example I usually focus on is the German family. Austria, Prussia, and Swizterland certainly never refer to each other as brothers, but I've seen a lot of fanart where they are considered one big "family" (along with Germany, HRE, Liechtenstein, Germania and occasionally England, Denmark and Sweden). Prussia and Austria exerted what some historians call a "duality" on German history and the rest of the German states, and the Austro-Prussia War of 1866 had fascinating names such as the "German Civil War" and Bruderkrieg, German for "fraternal war".

I think it's believable to think that Austria and Switzerland are, perhaps, the "cousins" that occasionally come over to visit. Austria seems abnormally comfortable around Germany (HRE --> Germany theory aside) to the extent that he'll mess with his clothes and perhaps demand cake. This strikes me as odd because he's clearly not that way with many other countries. It amuses me to remember that he's the only dark-haired one out of the group. xD; Wonder where THAT gene came in...

Any thoughts? ^^; Do you see any other countries being related to each other in this way?

[Discussion] What Instruments Would They Play?

We all know that Austria plays piano (and violin, too, right?) and North Italy plays some guitar.
I've seen a picture of Germany with a cello and England with a guitar.

1) What instruments do each of the countries play?

2) How many can they play? Or is it just one?

3) How well can they play them?

4) Who taught them how to play? Or did they teach themselves?

5) Judging by the most popular genres/songs/artists of that country, what instrument do you think they play?

6) With cultural influences from other countries, can the nation play the others' instrument/music (ex: America having many different cultures).

I'm really curious, and I'm also thinking about using some suggestions from this post to help with writing.

Oh, and if this has already been posted, please inform me!

Zero - &quot;So Much Fail&quot;

Selling: One Coin Figures

So... I really wanted a Romano coin figure so I bought three and I didn't get one, but my friend did so she traded me an America for her Romano. HOWEVER! That means I have two other ones that I don't really want any more.

So I'm selling one Russia, and one Japan for um, is $20 unreasonable? I remember seeing them for that price a lot. Plus $5 in shipping. If you buy both I won't charge for shipping. They're both sealed and I have the boxes and stuff for them.

I'm not really sure if this warrants a cut since it's not that long. Please comment if you're interested or let me know if I'm charging way too much to get them sold.

Um, there seemed to be interest in proof of items so I took some pictures

[Discussion] So, How's the weather?

Okay, epitome of British and I apologise for that: Do you think the weather in a certain country reflects a Nation's mood? Like, for instance, Rain could represent depression (Though that doesn't sound too good on my country's part now, orz) or such? Or wind could represent anger or something? Or storms, for that matter? Or snow, on countries that don't get it all that often?

Does it variate depending on the nation, seeing as the climates are different?

Or what about extreme weather. Like, what would hurricanes and Tornadoes have effect on Alfred, par example? Personal headcanon of my own is that Hurricanes over Florida tend to make a nation really quite.... feisty. Like, in heat. Lol. I don't know. That's an odd way to put it.

[Anyone else notice the increase in discussion topics, by the way? How highly unusual. But good. ]

[Forum Roleplay Ad] Hetalia: Nation Representation

(if this ad is too soon after the last one, then I apologize.)

The action just started over at

Hetalia: Nation Representation

(like yesterday)

BUT! We're still missing several characters.  I'm playing Finland, and I presently lack a husband Sweden.  I'm pleading personally for anyone who wants to come play to please come by and check us out; we're a laid back and fun bunch of people doing a cracky, fun, espionage high school AU (pretty badass, huh?), so there's no need to be shy.

Not interested in Nordics? Then screw you. There's plenty more characters open.  C'mon, you know you want to join ;D

Hope to see you there~!
