[fanfic] An Island to Avoid

Title: An Island to Avoid, or, Why America Should Listen to Advice
Author: Myself, lovelessangel88, under my writing account of ecrivant_ange 
Summary: It wasn't that Italy was afraid... okay, he was. But America should have listened to him, really!
Characters/Pairings: Italy, America, if you squint really hard I suppose you could pair these two together.
Warnings/Rating: PG rating for alcohol and possible overlooked language.
Notes:I wrote this after a Travel Channel special on Poveglia, a small island just off the north Italian coast, near Venice I believe. Wikipedia can tell you more about the history, but it's important to note this: Poveglia is banned, no one is allowed to go there and fishermen avoid it like, well, the plague. On very VERY rare occasions, the Italian government will allow psychics, mediums, and other clairvoyants to investigate the island. In the special I watched, it was a couple of Americans who by the end of it seemed to me pretty scared of it. Thus, this crack was spawned. Please enjoy.

Just follow the handy fake-cut to my writing journal~

New official blog picture!

It's CHINA!

Hidekaz-sensei, you are spoiling us so!

http://himaruya.blog61.fc2.com/blog-entry-774.html

From mifei it says, "Many cloths in China are so shiny they're great." or something along those lines.

EDIT: Okay, so some said that "shiny" should be changed to "dazzling" or "gorgeous", so there's another interpretation of the word.

[FIC] 'The Trains Will Run on Time' (Italy, Mussolini)

Title: The Trains Will Run on Time
Author/Artist: Cephied Variable
Characters/Pairings: Italy, Romano, Germany, Italy/Germany, Benito Mussolini
Rating: PG
Warnings: Spoiler: Italy didn't do so good in WWII
Summary: Italy and his boss and his brother and his one true love and a war that he didn't want to fight. I really had no idea how to go about characterizing Mussolini and there is a sentence I never thought I would type when prefacing a fanfic.
Word Count: 2822

(As he and Mussolini stand alone in their cold, sparse room, Veneziano can hear Romano halfway across the country. He and his men are singing too. All of Italy will be aflame soon, but tonight all of Italy is singing Verdi. )

Manga or Anime?

Hi! I'm new to the Hetalia fandom. I just started reading some of the manga and watching some anime episodes (up to 30) recently after seeing the kick-ass cosplay costumes online.

Are the manga and anime much different? I've realized from my brief experience with the manga that the anime kind of rearranges some of the comic strips. Which would you recommend newbies to read first to get the most out of the series? I'm usually very much a manga person (I always prefer the original plots) but I have to admit that the APH manga was a bit confusing to me. I found the anime easier to understand, and of course, Italia's constant whining is hilarious to listen to. If I just watch the anime, will I be missing out on alot? Thanks in advance!

So that this is not a redundant post, perhaps everyone who comments could talk about which version you enjoy better.

[Meetup] Netherlands, Blijdorp~

Hi there~!
I think it is time to make a post about our next meeting here~!

So. For all our dutch Hetalia fans, and people who live near our cute little country, we decided to meet in Blijdorp, Rotterdam!
For people who don't know what Blijdorp is, it's the most awesome zoo ever (in my opinion x3) It's pretty big, so enough room for us. :3 And it has some pretty epic places for photoshoots!

When: Monday, 3 may (for most people, it's vacantion that week ~)
Where: Blijdorp, Rotterdam. We will gather at Rotterdam CS, in front of Smullers (near the AH to go..) between 10 and 11 AM. From there we'll walk to Blijdorp.

Once we're in Blijdorp, we'll probably have a photoshoot, and after that you are free to walk around. Around 1 PM we plan to eat our lunch together~ After Blijdorp closes we'll walk back to the station and eat something there together. :3

You have to pay €18,50 to get into Blijdorp, but there are lots of discounts going on everywhere, so if you can find something good you can get in for less. x3

Cosplaying isn't a must, you're free to come in you're everyday clothing, but it's always more fun if we have more countries, non?
For now we already have around 28 people who said they wanted to come, so yay~

If you have any questions, please reply here, or send me a message. :3 And if you really want to join us it would be nice if you could send me a message with your e-mail adress, so we can send a reminder to people and so on. ;D

Greetings from your all loved France Nii-chan~

Nashicon Meet-up/Photo Shoot (Columbia, SC)

As some of you may or may not know, Nashicon is on April 17-18, or basically, next weekend. Anyone that's going up for a Hetalia tie-dye shirt meet-up/photo shoot?

The awesomethealmightykit and I would love to see a basic tie-dye photo shoot with all of the nations based on this beautiful fanart. We invite multiples of nations, nations not represented in the picture, and non-cosplayers who are fans of Hetalia. The premise is that a tie-dye shirt, jeans, and sneakers are pretty easy for everyone to pull off. If you would rather wear another costume outside of the tie-dye, then that's awesome, too! :)

Now, for the info:

Where: Russel House, University of South Carolina
When:  There are two possible times that I would like some input on. There is a Hetalia panel at 3:30 - 4:30 and I would like to know if before the panel or after the panel would be better.
Directions: Directions are available on the Nashicon website (the link is above).

**This post will be updated with the meeting time and other information later this week**

Title: Angry If I'm Honest
Author: inuyashacooks @ ammazzacaffe
Characters/Pairings: Germany/Italy; mentions of others
Rating: PG
Warnings: N/A
Summary: Italy drags Germany to the beach; Germany dreads the trip, because lately he's been off-put whenever Italy comes close to him.

( "Hey- could you kiss me?" )


Title: Flashing Lights
Author: inuyashacooks @ ammazzacaffe
Characters/Pairings: US/UK; mentions of others

( They ended up in an Italian restaurant after both of them profusely bitched about there being too many Italian restaurants in all the big cities, man, what the Hell was up with those two? “It’s like the Roman empire, except more subtle,” America suggested, obnoxiously loud although now, being in the restaurant, they had a sizeable audience of Italians, “Like one day every restaurant and grocery store is gonna like be Italian, and then they’ll deny everybody food! I see it coming already!” )

(Discussion) Italies: Should their personalities switch?

Should Hiramuya switch their personalities?

I've heard many people (and even in the Toradora anime), that Italians from the South are more cheerful and kind, as opposed to Italians from the North, who are slightly colder and reserved.

I know many people say that during the WW2 time, North Italy could have been cheerful and South Italy rough and angered. However, Hiramuya draws strips from 2000+ onwards, and we can still see a happy, cheerful North Italy eating candy apples in 2008's Christmas and a pissed off South Italy who never changes.

[QUESTION] Translating Fan Art

I was thinking of starting a translation team to scanlate minor fanart from Pixiv, or other websites.  I was wondering, should I be asking permission to translate them?  

on the 'no' side, fanart is illegal in the first place.  It's also very hard to ask every single person for permission.  And if it's on the internet, it's the internet, some manipulating is bound to happen.  I think it would be fine as long as we give them credit.

on the 'yes' side, it is their work, and maybe they would like to be notified.  ...That's all I can think of in the 'yes' section.

And what do I do if I sent them requests and they have not replied?  Should I take that as a yes or no?
