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.

Title: Kill All Sons Of Bitches
Originally posted: Here, for one of the homeless [livejournal.com profile] hetaliasunshine prompts (which I've only just now looked at ^_^;). Originally requested by [livejournal.com profile] hakuku.
Length: 3000 words.
Characters/Pairings: America/England, Prussia/Hungary.
Premise: Hetalia/Left 4 Dead crossover! (Okay, technically a Left 4 Dead 2 crossover.) For non-gamers: that means there's zombies.
Time period: THE ALL-TOO-NEAR FUTURE.

Warm-and-fuzziness: 2/10
Lolhistoryness: 0/10
Violence: 7/10
Would I like it?: If you've played Left 4 Dead or Left 4 Dead 2, you'll pick up a lot of references, but otherwise you can just read it as a typical zombie apocalypse fic (minus the omake at the end). Bonus points to the first person who knows what campaign they're in!

Yeah, I don't know.

I am so very sorry, about so very much.

Title: Here Lie We
Originally posted: Here, for the CMC Event at the [livejournal.com profile] russiamerica comm. ♥ Prompt: Propaganda.
Length: 1,400 words.
Characters/Pairings: Primarily England. Also, America. Implied Russia/America.
Premise: Unsure what it might accomplish, England loans America a book that has only become more relevant with time.
Time period: 1984, of course.

Would I like it?: It's a lit fic! Every fandom writer who aspires to be really overbearingly pretentious has to write a lit fic sooner or later. This one's mine! Definitely will be more obtuse if you're not familiar with George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Title: Five Six Seven Eight
Originally posted: Here, for the CMC Event at [livejournal.com profile] russiamerica. Day 6 prompt: gamble.
Length: 1,100 words.
Characters/Pairings: Russia/America.
Premise: America is a fail spy. Also, Russian pistols hold more bullets than you think.
Time period: Cold War sometime after 1969, I guess, since I make a so-veiled-you-might-miss-it reference to the Space Race.

Violence: 6/10
Would I like it?: It started life as a 600-word drabble-y thing, and then it exploded into a confetti shower of America's retarded inner monologue and him getting shot at a lot. That sound like fun?

Title: Movie Night
Originally posted: Here, but I wrote it for [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890 like a million years ago.
Length: 1300 words.
Characters/Pairings: Russia/America
Premise: One quiet evening at home, Russia introduces America to Russian cinema. Adorableness ensues.
Time period: Indefinite future, or crack-anytime, if you prefer.
Smuttiness: 1/10
Funnyness: 4/10
Wrist slashiness: 1/10
Lolhistoryness: 3/10
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: Uh, well, it doesn't really have one of those fancy "point" things. But it's ultra-fluffy, and you can take some movie recommendations out of it? All of the movies the boys watch are classics. It's also pretty crack--it's from the same future AU as Scar. Just like. A way cuter part of it.

pyrrhiccomedy: (democracy rules)
Do you have a question you need answered? Need some advice? Want a poorly thought-out summary of the Franco-Prussian War? (He might have to consult Google.) America will answer that shit for you. Or at least, he'll try.

(So, I've kind of wanted to do this ever since writing that Dear Romano thing a zillion years ago, even though it's a really dumb idea. I just kind of love letting America ramble about things, and I feel like I don't get enough opportunities to do that in fic. XD INDULGE ME PLEASE, FRIENDSLIST)

Ground Rules:
1) What era America is this?
Modern, unless you specify otherwise, which is totally allowed. Just say "For 1960s America" or "For colony!America" or whatever if you don't want him to answer from a modern point of view.

2) Is this TCE-canon America?
It sure is. But with that in mind, try to keep your specific historical questions about his relationship with Russia after 1945 vague (America is not allowed to give spoilers, as much as he would like to). So "Hey 1960s America, what do you think of Russia?" is cool. "Hey 1960s America, what went down between you two during the Cuban Missile Crisis?" is not. Specific questions from before the end of WW2 are cool, though.

3) Can I ask America if he would go on a date with me? Or who his favorite sexual partner has been? Or what he thinks about Higgs bosons? Or if he can give a short but moving speech about the plight of the baleen whale? Or what was going through his mind when he dropped the atomic bombs?
You can ask America anything you want.

4) Can I ask America a question from the POV of another nation?
What, you mean like "Dear America: why haven't you called? -France" ? Yeah, that's cool too.

5) Can I ask America more than one question?
Of course! America loves to hear himself talk.

EDIT: this thread is now closed! It's been a lot of fun, thank you guys so much for playing with me! =D I reeeeally need to get back to writing fic now, though. So um...yeah. >_>

Length: 2400 words.
Characters/Pairings: Antarctica OC; also England, Norway, America, Russia, France, and a slew of brief appearances from others.
Premise: Check it out, you guys! Antarctica!
Time period: 1908-2004.
Smuttiness: 0/10
Funnyness: 4/10
Wrist slashiness: 3/10
Lolhistoryness: 7/10
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: It's about an OC (possibly bad) and it has penguins in it (obviously good). It's up to you how you balance those things against each other.

Title: Blessed Are The Peacemakers
Originally posted: Here, for [livejournal.com profile] youkofujima from her reverse request meme.
Length: 2000 words.
Characters/Pairings: Russia/America.
Premise: Cold War-era Russia and America talk about religion over dinner.
Time period: 1960s-1970s.
Smuttiness: 3/10
Funnyness: 2/10
Wrist slashiness: 5/10
Lolhistoryness: 3/10
Violence: 2/10
Would I like it?: It's an argument about religion, and therefore pretty likely to offend someone. Viewpoints expressed include Marxist atheism, nihilistic atheism, pan-Protestantism, and a brief dig at Catholicism (which certainly does not reflect the author's opinion). Russia also gets a little rough with America. It's all right, though, he likes it.

You can read this fic in Russian - translation by [livejournal.com profile] erueru_2d.

Some of you may have been wondering why the fic has dried up around this joint all of a sudden. "Whyfor this bullshit?" you may well ask.

The answer is that my husband bought me The Sims, the "life simulator game" in which you make little people, put them into a little town, and guide them through their little lives, hopefully helping them to achieve their hopes and dreams along the way. (There is another school of thought, wherein The Sims is more akin to a diabolical social experiment, designed to test the limits of human misery, but that's a sordid sort of business and it will not be countenanced here.) It's utterly banal and strangely fascinating, and then two weeks of my life disappeared.

But that's not the end of the story. After all, I wouldn't be putting this in my fanworks journal if I was just "playing The Sims."

I've been playing Hetalia Sims.

Warning! Image heavy! )

Length: 3,400 words.
Characters/Pairings: UK/US
Premise: The request was for a dominant, yandere!UK, with noncon, set around America's birthday.
Time period: Modern.
Smuttiness: 7/10
Funnyness: 0/10
Wrist slashiness: 7/10
Lolhistoryness: 0/10
Violence: 5/10
Would I like it?: This story presents UK/US in an extremely unhealthy light, and includes noncon, bondage, violence, and asphyxiation. It's very dark, and if any of that is likely to upset you, please, by all means, give this one a miss.

Before anyone asks: yes, I do feel guilty for writing this.

Title: Scar
Originally posted: 4/30/09, on [livejournal.com profile] wizzard890's journal, as a "you're stressed and I have a couple hours to kill, have some fic" thing.
Length: 1,500 words.
Characters/Pairings: America, England. Implied Russia/America.
Premise: Russia and America's relationship is changing America, and not for the better, as far as England is concerned. America takes a guess at why he's really so upset, and it involves roleplay, possessiveness, and Russia's latest 'gift.'
Time period: It's AU stuff, indefinite future.
Smuttiness: 0/10, unless I get points for ~weird pseudosexual vibes.~
Funnyness: 0/10
Wrist slashiness: 5/10
Lolhistoryness: 0/10
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: Russia/America shippers should be pleased. America/England shippers...uh...less so. Those of you who ship both...mixed feelings, I guess? Christ, it's going to be this, and then that scary yandere!England prompt from [livejournal.com profile] crosswhisper. I'M SORRY, US/UK FANS! I LIKE ENGLAND REALLY!

Title: The Tom Jones Comes Later
Originally posted: Here, for [livejournal.com profile] gngstermoney32
Length: 1,400 words.
Characters/Pairings: Russia/America
Premise: The Great Blizzard of 1888; kissing in the snow.
Time period: 1888
Smuttiness: 2/10
Funnyness: 3/10
Wrist slashiness: 0/10
Lolhistoryness: 2/10. There really was a blizzard, and it really did extend all the way into Canada. It was pretty hardcore.
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: It is fluffy like whipped cream, or pillows. This is totally unconnected to TCE, by the way, and I personally encourage you to imagine that America gets Russia home, puts on a fire, makes some hot cocoa, and pulls a Tom Jones-style baby it's cold outside to get him to spend the night.

Title: Moths and Candles
Originally posted: Here, for [livejournal.com profile] jinsai.
Length: 3,500 words.
Characters/Pairings: France/America.
Premise: After the Great War, many Americans stayed in or traveled to France, searching for meaning, as part of what in America came to be called the Lost Generation, and in France was called the Generation of Fire.
Time period: 1920s
Smuttiness: 7/10
Funnyness: 0/10
Wrist slashiness: 5/10
Lolhistoryness: 4/10
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: God, but this story wound up being a lot harder to write than I thought it'd be. It's been kicking my ass for about a week. I have no objectivity left to judge whether or not it's any good, but there's sex, smoking, jazz, and France's borderline-sociopathic POV. Does that sound like fun?

The System

Title: The System
Originally posted: 2/23/2009, on the kink meme. Link
Length: 1,600 words.
Characters/Pairings: Russia, America, England, France.
Premise: The Europeans are practicing their fencing, and then America catches Russia at something rather unusual.
Time period: Modern.
Smuttiness: 1/10
Funnyness: 5/10
Wrist slashiness: 0/10
Lolhistoryness: 3/10. Systema is a Russian martial art developed for Spetznaz, which is so effective at unbalancing and redirecting one's opponents that when it was first demonstrated in the West, many accused it of being a tool of Soviet propaganda, and not a fighting system at all. To an outside observer, attackers approaching a Systema master often look like they just fall down for no reason.
Violence: 4/10
Would I like it?: It's candy for Systema fans, but there's also plenty of America being a smartass and enduring unresolved sexual tension with Russia. Fans of fencing might also get a kick out of it.

Title: America, You Idiot
Originally posted: Here, for twistedsheets10 as part of a ludicrously adorable photos-for-fic trade.
Length: 2,200 words.
Characters/Pairings: UK/US

Time period: Modern.
Smuttiness: 3/10
Funnyness: 5/10
Wrist slashiness: 4/10

Time period: 1814
Smuttiness: 0/10
Funnyness: 0/10
Wrist slashiness: 7/10
Lolhistoryness: 5/10. It was so called the White House prior to these events.
Violence: 5/10
Would I like it?: It's a hatefic. So, bleak. Lots of ~subtext,~ though, if that's the sort of thing you're into. Makes passing mention of the France/US relationship here.

Time period: 1803
Smuttiness: 7/10
Funnyness: 4/10
Wrist slashiness: 2/10
Lolhistoryness: 7/10 - if you're confused about anything America and France are talking about in the beginning, check out the XYZ Affair and Jay's Treaty.

Title: Boston
Originally posted: Here.
Length: 3,200 words.
Characters/Pairings: UK/Colonial!US
Premise: Ideological differences are about to tear England and America apart, but who cares about that? They have sex, is my point.
Time period: 1774
Smuttiness: 7/10
Funnyness: 0/10
Wrist slashiness: 5/10
Lolhistoryness: 8/10, but nothing that should leave you scratching your head and alt-tabbing for Wikipedia. Non-Americans might miss out on a line if they don't know that the Quartering Act of 1774 stated that the townships of Massachusetts were responsible for providing housing for British soldiers (although contrary to popular belief, that didn't mean British soldiers could stay in people's private homes without permission).
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: It's more dysfunctional, wrenching, colonial era relationships.
