✎ it was a jammy dodger

[fic - it was not meant that we should voyage far, 5/?]

Title: It was not meant that we should voyage far. [5/?]
Fandom: Axis Powers Hetalia/Echo Bazaar
Characters: Every nation ever at one point or another. This part: Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Scotland, America, Canada, and a few random extras.
Rating: PG-13 for this chapter.
Summary: An Echo Bazaar crossover AU. Fallen London: once capital of the British Empire, now home of the Bazaar, a mile underground and a boat ride away from Hell itself. Deep. Dark. Expensive. Marvellous. Here you can find everything from immortality, to unnervingly good mushroom wine.

Or so the stories go.

But stories can rarely be trusted, and all the wildest stories in the world couldn’t have prepared Alfred and Matthew Jones for what they would find when they descended into the fallen city on a journey that would lead them right into the heart of a rebellion against the Masters of the Bazaar themselves…
Word Count: This part: 3205.
Notes: I’m back, guys! Sorry for the huge gap between updates and for not announcing it, but I’ve been on holiday with my family for the past couple of weeks for the holiday season and didn’t have time to put a notice up. Hopefully a new chapter will make up somewhat for it! Anyway, this is once again the continuation of the long haul that started as my NaNo project for last year. :'> The title is from an HP Lovecraft quote, “We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”
Warnings: General warnings: A crossover with a (very addictive) online game, a lot of speculation and elaboration on my part on the universe of that game, human!AU, the occasional bit of 1800s sensibilities, and later on in the fic, a lot of OCs. :’> This chapter: NaNo quality writing, some OCs, and a big boom.

(Fake cut to the chapter!)

[official blog] The blog had been updated

Himaruya-san has updated his blog with lot of new pics!

You can see them here:

I think they are the answers to some of our requests but I can't really read Japanese...
Someone can explain me the bit about Italy and Hatsumōde? Is a reference to the fact that during the bloodbath Italy showed up at a time that was proper for Hatsumōde?

[Selling] Cute Jewelry & Charms!

Accepting some orders for adorable, cute, polymer clay jewelry. They are hetalia themed one way or another, and are well-priced, well-crafted, and well-adored! :) Great if you like cute stuff, or if you know someone who likes cute stuff. I can do just about anything, but this is mainly just for some samples/examples. I can place them on rings, necklace chains, bracelet chains, earring findings, and cell phone straps. <s>PICTURES UNDA TA CUT. </s>

ACTUALLY. I am sort of having issues with this LJ thing right now...the selling post is HERE.

Commissions are $10 and $4 for any additional characters. I do accept Paypal and concealed cash. If you have any general questions, feel free to ask. Thanks! :>

Question about buying rerelease of one coin figures

I was scanning the internet for the cheapest way to buy rereleases on the hetalia coin sets and came across this offer:
...Is there some catch here I'm not getting? ._.; I know this is a well used site so I was really confused, and I don't want to be scammed or anything like that, but normally that's on sites like ebay and the like.
Normally I'm just a lurker here, but I was really hoping someone who maybe has more experience buying these kinds of things could clear up any confusion as to if there is some kind of catch or something... because that's otherwise ridiculously cheap. @.@
Thank you!

2 Fics:

Just sharing two fics I wrote recently:

Title: A Little Christmas
Rating: PG
Pairing: Greece/Japan, America/England
Summary: Japan convinces America to have a smaller Christmas party with just them and their boyfriends.

It is a wonder that America-san can do this every year. It must be his young age... )


Title: Topographically Speaking
Rating: PG
Pairing: Kenya/Australia
Summary: And so, that is how Australia found himself in the precarious position of trying to impress the lovely Sheila that possessed the second highest mountains in Africa and the very bountiful Kenyan highlands, with what his country had to offer.

So the lady wanted a good time in Australia, hmm? Well that, he was most certain to provide. )

Quick question

I'm sorry if this question isn't allowed and that I ask waaay too many questions. ;^;
But I think you guys will most definitely have the answer!

The icon I am currently using on this post (Taiwan smiling)...where can I find the original picture? And would you happen to know if Himaruya officially colored it, and if not, where I could find one that is colored by a fan on the community?

Thanks in advance!
