This is where you can find every fic in the ongoing Russia/America collaboration between myself and [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890. While we hope that each chapter can be enjoyed on its own, they were written as part of a continuing story.


4/15/09: Have you made or seen TCE-inspired fanart? That's awesome! Can we see it? We want to fangirl, too! Just post a link in the comments below, or (if you're shy) drop a line to one of us personally. It would be way appreciated. Thank you!

(1) Discrepancies - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1780: their first diplomatic contact.
PG-13 for gossip, innuendo, and Catherine the Great.

(2) Poor At Apologies - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1814: After Napoleon's exile, both nations find plenty of reasons to complain about England.
PG.

(3) Favorites - [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1822: America asks Russia to arbitrate a dispute with England over the Treaty of Ghent. England can't decide if he wants to smack America more because he's a demanding, upstart little ingrate, or to beat some sense into him for pursuing a friendship with Russia.
PG-13 for nations generally behaving like huge jerks.

(4) A Slice of the World - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1823: America goes to talk to Russia about his Pacific coast colonies after President Monroe issues his new foreign policy tenants that would later be known as the Monroe Doctrine. Sensitive issues are insensitively addressed, America is easily distracted by flying machines, and most of the emotional subtext goes over his head.
I say it's PG, wizzard says it's PG-13. I guess we'll have to have a dance-off.

(5) Excuses - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1855: American humanitarian aid given to the Russia during the Crimean War takes the form of America feeding laudanum to an injured Russia, and Russia making the most of it.
PG-13.
[livejournal.com profile] minuiko's (ongoing!) doujin based on this story: 1 2

(6) Jealousy - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1861: Russia drops by to share the good news that serfdom in his country has been abolished, to find America on the cusp of a breakdown and civil war.
PG.

(7) Antietam - [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1862: Russia supports America on America's bloodiest day in history, and is reminded of his own.
PG-13 for descriptions of violence.

(8) The Hunt - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1872: There's Wild Bill Cody, George Custer, buffalo hunting, and serious makeouts. I don't really know what else to tell you.
PG-13 for the makeouts, I guess.

(9) Lies - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890
1886: America discovers Dostoyevsky, and he can't shut up about it.
PG.

(10) Heat - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1892: Famine ravages Russia. America goes to help, and ends up concluding that it would be inappropriate to take advantage of him when he's weak and sick and groggy. (More's the pity, I know.)
PG-13.

(11) An Understanding - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1903: The Kishinev Pogrom marks the beginning of a new wave of antisemitism in Russia, and America gets to be a hero. Narrated by Israel; includes brief appearances from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland.
PG-13 for violence. Please be aware that this chapter includes strong anti-Semitic language and violence against women.

(12) First Kiss of Winter - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1905: Russia receives a worried visitor after the horrifying events of Bloody Sunday.
PG-13 for violent imagery.

(13) Permission and Promises - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890
1917: The Bolshevik Revolution brings Russia hope for the first time in decades. The Romanovs' power over Russia fades, and America sends along cautious congratulations.
PG-13.

(14) To Russia With Love - [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1918: America writes Russia a letter from the front lines of the Great War. I'm not gonna call it a love letter, but he does get a little gay there towards the end.
PG, excusing bad language.

(15) Interregnum - [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 and [livejournal.com profile] pyrrhiccomedy
1919: The American embassy in Moscow closes its doors, and Russia comes to say goodbye.
PG.
