[Question] Nations during battle

Hello there! I see a lot of fanfiction posted to this community, so I hope other fellow writers can offer their opinions on a few issues I've been turning over in my head.

I am planning and preparing a historical fic concerning the full history of Hong Kong. Recently my research has been mostly about WWII thanks to the book I'm reading, so the concept of nations during battle made me come up with a few questions:

1) The comics and anime clearly show that nations do participate in battle alongside their soldiers. I'm definitely showing this by having Japan and Canada fighting, but since I have Hong Kong "human aged" at roughly 10-12 years old at this point, do you consider it fair to have him participate in the troops as well? I thought about it, but it doesn't seem right for some reason. Right now I have him at the side of the governor and Commander of the HK Garrison, in the middle of all the orders and reports.

The next two questions are more about Hetalia fanfiction in general.

2) I do try to stick to nation-names instead of human-names when dealing with them in a historical or canon way, but trying to write war councils and military personnel discussing strategy makes it slightly awkward. When the name of a place could either mean the nation-person OR actual physical boundaries of the colony, it gets slightly confusing. What is your stance on this? Should the humans continue to refer to nations via nation-name? Speaking of which, Hong Kong doesn't even have an official one so I'm leaning towards the former right now...

3) ENGLAND, or BRITAIN?? Which one to use?? In my outlines, I've been using "Britain," though the main British battalion at Hong Kong were the Royal Scots.

I hope this is okay for me to post on this community. If not, I'll remove it. Thank you!

[Selling] Animage and Animedia (May 2011)

Hi all, I need help!

For LJ members who know me, you should know that I make regular scans of Anime Magazines like Animage, Animedia, Pash and sometimes Newtype.

Last month, I made a reservation of Animage and Animedia (May 2011 issue) with my local Kinokuniya but I completely forgot about it and bought it off the shelves since they are available on the shelves. Just now, a staff from Kinokuniya called me to inform me that if I do not collect my reservations by the end of this week (30th May 2011), I'll be blacklisted and they won't take my future reservations anymore. Though I explained what happened to them, they are firm to stick to their policies. (sigh) (v.v)

I already own copies of Animage and Animedia (May 2011 issue) so it's a waste of money for me to buy extra copies.

Since I frequent Kinokuniya for Japanese books/manga/magazines, I don't wish to be blacklisted. I'll be getting the magazines this weekend and I hope some kind soul will buy them from me. I'll sell both for 20 USD + shipping/handling fees, which is less than half of the price I'm going to pay them for.

There are many attractive gifts which came along with the magazines. You can find the scans here for reference.

You can find my sales feedback here (100% positive).

Hope you can help me~
