Summary: Ace pilot America is on a mission for the World Military when a chance encounter with a group of sky-pirates leads him to team up with their captain, England, against a malevolent group that wants to fill the sky with zeppelins. [Steampunk AU]
Chapter Summary: “Why is he going after the sky?” America’s lips formed a thin line, and his teeth were pressed together in anger.

“If he controls the sky, he controls the world,” Lithuania said. “People still travel by sea, and people still travel by land, of course. But if you own the sky? You’re above all of that.”

“The sky is at the top of the world,” America added, his voice quiet.

( All he had to do, was find a story... )

Hope you enjoy. :)

[Fanfic] One Safe Place 6/?

Author: eveliens/eeevee

Genre : mystery/suspense
Characters: 
AmericaCanadaLithuania, implied pairings
Rating: T
Warnings: violence, kidnapping, set in the future

Summary: Nations keep disappearing, a pandemic looms on the horizon, globalization is taking over, and America decides that he is sick of playing the hero. Instead he seems to be reverting back to an isolationist state, forging some unusual alliances.
A/N: Quick post before I go to California. The next update will probably take a few weeks because I won't have extensive internet access between CA, KS, and MO (I live in AR; I've spent a grand total of 3 days home this month). Hope everyone enjoys the chapter. Russia and England were hard to write, so hopefully they aren't too OOC. Reviews are much appreciated. This fic is giving me a lot of trouble and I'd like to hear if I am (or am not) screwing it up XO

[RP] The World is Not Enough

 Hi all!

 


♠ ♠ ♠


We are a forum based AU RpG  currently under renovation (deleting old inactive accounts and threads), and we're eager to welcome new people to play with~

For now, in the forum we have a Gakuen section which wants to be revived and a Fantasy section with an ongoing plot, waiting for new players to liven it up! We're also totally open to new ideas for plots, other sections or AU settings!

Most of the canon characters are still free, so please feel welcomed to come and take them! :D

In particular, we would really like to have a Roderich/Austria and especially a Gilbert/Prussia to tease our Ludwig and help us with the plot in the fantasy part.


If anyone is interested, please check these links, and feel free to ask any question.

[Event] Portcon Maine

So, as we're less than a week out for Portcon 2010, it's must be shameless plug time!

Hetalia related happenings:

Photoshoot at 2 on Saturday, probably meeting near the front door and then moving from there. Probably outside, since it's such a small space.

"The Swastika in Anime and You" OR "Why Cosplaying a Nazi isn't Cool" panel is Saturday at 11 in Breakwater Room. Basically a look at Japan's view on Nazis, an American perspective on why cosplaying one in public might be a bad choice, and how to avoid getting yelled at by a veteran! Good times, I promise.

And visit Artist Alley, 'cause I've got a table there and am bringing a ton of Hetalia stuffs. For a preview (though most things haven't been uploaded):

Feed my Italian muses, please~? [ one x one rp request ]

I understand this community gets a lot of these types of requests... BUT I CAN NOT RESIST ANY LONGER, I MUST PUT MYSELF OUT HERE. Hello, dear readers. You can call me Starry, and I come here humbly to see if any of my fellow Hetalia fans are willing to roleplay with my current muses, North and South Italy.

Preferably, I would love to find a Germany or Spain, since GerIta and Spamano are my OTPs. But I am so desperate to my lovely italian that I'm up for almost any pairing that includes them. 

I roleplay in paragraph style, and I usually mimic my partner's length. I love anything from quick 2 paragraphs replies to long long novels~ My dream themes for rps vary from historically based events (INQUISITION PLZZZ) to AU situation to Gauken.

Though I'm not a noob to roleplaying, I am to live-journal. So if you want more details/other pairings I will roleplay please check out my detailed journal post about this (it's in the edit section). If you are serious about roleplaying with me or have any other questions, please e-mail me at starrystarrydesu@hotmail.com. Thanks. :)


Edit:: Ughh... I kinda suck at this site, so just go to my journal post please. ; w ; http://littlesognatare.livejournal.com/973.html

[Discussion] Hetalia Demographic

The other day, I had a thought about Hetalia as a whole:

"Just who exactly is this series aimed at now, anyway?"

I'm interested in getting three basic stats from everybody; their age, their sex, and their sexual orientation. I hear that good old "Hetalia is only for straight teenage girls fujoshi!" comment quite often outside the fandom, but it seems all the people I know and interact with IRL who like Hetalia don't really fit that profile. So, I'm polling hetalia to see who's actually here and if that assumption the world made about "us" is true.

Collapse )

I'm aware that there are a million other factors that should be taken into consideration (socioeconomic class, country of residence, etc.), but these three seem like the most basic and least intrusive. And then there's also the whole "only girls use LJ!" argument that could potentially throw this off, but since this is kind of the unofficial "base camp" for Hetalia fans, I figure it should be alright.

Ah, and if you answered 'Other' for your sexuality, a comment clarifying which flavor of 'Other' would be awesome. :3 ('Other' also includes 'Undecided,' since so many people seem to need everything spelled out.)

EDIT: Lol, why is everybody telling their "I got into Hetalia because..." stories? But okay, okay, I get it, it had nothing to do with boys kissing, I believe you! xD

Help with Cosplay~?

So.....this is my first time posting here > A>;; I'm sorry if I sound really stupid D:

Anyway, this is my first time cosplaying ( as Russia : D I promise I'll post pics next time ) So I've decided to just buy a cosplay online since I'm hopeless at sewing and making clothes for myself ( trust me, I tried ). The thing is...I was a little confused at the measurements. I know sometimes you need to add a few more numbers to your size so the outfit won't be too tight or anything but does that also go for cosplays too? Or do they already add a few more centimeters themselves? D: I don't want to make a mistake and accidentally order something way too big or way too tight.

Also me and my friends are planning on chest binding since we're not really all that flat-chested ( we're not Ukraines either ) but since we need to put the measurements in, do we put in the measurements when our chests are already binded or our real sizes? D:

>>;; Once again, sorry if this sounds pretty dumb but it's my first time cosplaying.... xD

The Garden - Lieber Bruder - Per Ardua


( Scarcely had I dropped off when I was in my Hurricane rushing head-on at a 110. Just as we were about to collide I woke up with a jerk that nearly threw me out of bed. I was in a cold sweat, my heart banging wildly. I dropped off again – but the nightmare returned. This went on at intervals of about ten minutes all night. I shall never forget how I clung to the bed-rail in a dead funk. If there is ever a choice between physical and mental pain, I’ll take physical every time. )


Gertalia Christmas

Hetalia c. 1968... or 1853 or... something...

The map post a few pages down made me wonder why I hadn't shown y'all this amazing animation yet.

The charge of the Light Brigade is one of the most (in)famous military disasters from the 1800s, especially in the tactical mess that was the Crimean War. The fate of this company was the subject of a famous Tennyson poem and has been portrayed in several movies including one made in 1968 that starred Vanessa Redgrave and the now-late Sir John Gielgud.

I caught this on TV in May and it is a great film, even if it does play rather fast and loose with some historical facts. But the parts that reminded me of Hetalia were the animated clips inserted at intervals. They were drawn in the style of Punch magazine and represent the British Empire's fairly, er, empirical and jingoistic mindset in the mid-19th Century. Here, England, Turkey/The Ottoman Empire, Russia and France are represented as animals associated with each nation (a bear for Russia, a turkey for, well, Turkey hahaha so punny). The political satire and the historical detail just scream Hetalia to me.

Some kind soul has strung the clips together on youtube. They're very worth your time.

(Pay close attention and you'll see John Bull -- at least, I think it is he.)

ETA: Er, just to be clear, in case people thought otherwise, I didn't post this to say that I approved of British imperialism in the 18th Century, or that this footage does. It's pretty clear to me that, in keeping with its basis in the illustrations of Punch, that it's meant to satirize the empire's jingoism at the time.

And to make this a little more explicitly Hetalia-centric: What are some of your favorite pre-Hetalia personifications of nations, and what makes them resonate for you? I've always been very, very partial, for example, to Uncle Sam. And while she isn't a nation per se, I've always really liked Spencer's Britomart from his The Faerie Queene.

[Question/Discussion] New Zealand tag? When does a character get a tag?

The boy/girl/country has been out for a little while now after all, and I just noticed the lack of tag.
Granted his design is hard to make out, but pixiv/dA is already making fanart, so shouldn't a tag be added for future use?


Since I think it's a good idea, I added discussion to this.
After all there are minor characters that do have tags (zimbawbe, mongolia, etc.), while some others don't.
When should a character get a tag?

(My personal opinion on this matter is when they get an official design and thus fanart, fanfiction, cosplay and what will you have it can be made regarding the character)
