Title: The Last Continent

Length: 2400 words.
Characters/Pairings: Antarctica OC; also England, Norway, America, Russia, France, and a slew of brief appearances from others.

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: All The Time In The World
Originally posted: Here, for [ profile] ghostofthemotif for her reverse request post. Thanks to [ profile] lilichen for bravely providing me with some French profanity. *grins*
Length: 2500 words.
Characters/Pairings: England/France.
Premise: Here's the prompt - "England/France. The two nations discuss whether or not they believe a 'united world without borders' would result in their deaths, or if they'd be freed from their responsibilities and able to lead a normal life. Wishes for their future, fears for their countries, and grudgingly comforting words would be nice inserts." I did my best!
Time period: Modern.
Smuttiness: 1/10
Funnyness: 3/10
Wrist slashiness: 2/10
Lolhistoryness: 2/10
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: It's basically a rambly, philosophical conversation between a couple of cranky old married people. It's also my first time writing for this pairing--I hope I did all right.

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.

Title: Moths and Candles
Originally posted: Here, for [ 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?

Wrist slashiness: 3/10
Lolhistoryness: 5/10
Violence: 2/10
Would I like it?: Joan must teach a hopeless, drenched-in-horse-urine France to ~believe in himself~ again. If that sentence made you smile, read on.

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.

Time period: 1803
Smuttiness: 7/10

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.
Violence: 3/10
Would I like it?: It's revolutionary era America, and France is a bitch.

One of the commenters on the kink meme described my mafia!Italy as a blend of Don Corleone, the Joker, and the Bride from Kill Bill, which I thought was pretty much perfect.
