Do you think that writers and readers of Country/Reader fanfictions are sane? Moreover, do you think that smut writers of this genre are sane?
(aahhhh sorry for the lack of activity uwu)
…it depends. Like with everything else fandom-related.
I’ve written a few Country/Reader fanfictions of my own, and I gotta admit the genre is kinda… well… filled with a lot of blandness and a few gems. (I don’t think mine are “gems” tho„ uvu;;) From what I’ve noticed, a lot of them are written by people new to the fandom, so… they’re usually not gonna be fine pieces of literature.
They’re a lot like OC/Character fanfictions, although I have to admit Reader/Character fics are somewhat better than the former, since OC/Characters - especially really bad ones - seem like a self-insert for the author to fall in love with a character of their choice. But Reader Inserts… well, at least anybody who reads it can insert themselves, in comparison to an OC/Character fic.
From what I’ve seen, the problem with Country/Reader fics is that a lot of authors don’t put enough effort into them. But hey, they’re no worse than poorly-written fics involving only the canon characters.
Soo, basically… in my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with people who write tame or smutty Country/Reader fanfictions. As long as they understand not everyone’s fond of them.
And it’s also okay to think Country/Reader fanfictions are dumb, as long as you don’t diss people who like them.
I dunno… is it bad like, I think the comment “ew character/reader authors need to get laid” is kind of stupid? Using that logic, everyone who likes shipping canon characters together is “desperate” or whatever. Its just a fantasy some people have. Relax.
Hi! I just found this blog and fell in love with it! It makes try to be a better Hetalia fan. I see that the 'France isn't a rapist, and USUK fans portray him as such' thing a lot, but I think that the way some pairings fans portray other countries also need to be addressed on here. Like how some FrUK fans portray America as an asshole or such, or how the female characters are portrayed like bitches who try to get between male pairings. Case in point, Seychelles, Taiwan, Belgium, and Belarus.
hi! ;u; Sorry this blog hasn’t been too regular with its updates, but I dunno, maybe there just hasn’t been that much Hetalia drama lately? I dunno. xD
But you’re right. Whether someone ships USUK or FrUK or FrUS, the third guy shouldn’t be portrayed as some ass who tries to break up the ship. But I kinda think it’s perfectly fine for someone to, for example, ship FrUK, but maybe not like the character of America that much. As long as they don’t bash him for getting in the way of their OTP or whatever.
Same with the Hetalia girls. I’m not really the biggest fan of Liechtenstein, but not because she breaks up SwissAus or whatever. I don’t even ship SwissAus all that much. xD I dunno, she just seems kinda too much like a boring cute anime girl. But I do like when she’s given a bigger personality by the fans. c:
I think it’s fine for anybody to dislike (maybe not hate) a character for whatever (hopefully logical) reason. As long as its not for some moronic reason like breaking up a pairing. :/
So why would you just delete all of your art it doesn’t make any sense.
I was a tad hesitant to post this… ;;
Now, I haven’t been following the recent drama about her or whatever, but I know this artist kinda has a bad rep for bashing pairings, among other things.
Personally… flaming someone’s pairings because they flamed yours is kind of childish. Other blogs have probably talked about how it was wrong for her to say such a thing, and I have to agree. I especially didn’t like how she practically said people who ship incest pairings (like Germancest) support real-life incest or something.
However, are comments like these really called for? (right click to make full size, I think)
I dunno about you, but I’d feel crappy if people said I was one of the worst people in the Hetalia fandom.
Your blog is amazing! I literally just found it today, I have to admit. But I've honestly been reading many of the posts and agreeing with them in my head! Just thought I'd share :')
Aww, thank you! ;u; Heh, I think I feel the same way when I see a blog I like. I just go through the posts mentally saying ‘mmhmm. mmhmm. mmhmm. you deserve a cookie.’ :’33
I shall love this blog for all eternity. u v u

Awesome blog. I'm guessing after seeing your other blog you're okay with people thinking of Nyotalia as gender bends? I really like thinking of them as that. I remember a few people getting pissy about others doing that, but hell I don't really see what's so bad about it at all. They say it's because the characters aren't wearing the exact clothes as the regulars in miniskirt version or whatever. I'm sure if I was a guy, I would not be exactly like I am now. Idk >_<. What is your opinion?
Thank you! ;w;
Well… I personally think of the Nyotalia as genderbends, and use them as such when I feel like drawing/writing shojo-ai/het versions of my favorite shonen-ai pairings.
It’s alright if someone happens to think of the Nyotalia girls and guys as entirely separate characters alongside their male counterparts; just like it’s alright for someone to write fem!England, for instance, as just England with a vagina and a more ladylike personality.
I mean, other than fem!Italy being tougher than male!Italy (although I personally see her as having some of his ditzy, romantic, gluttonous personality), most of the other Nyo girls are still fairly similar to their male versions — although fem!Japan might be shyer than male!Japan, fem!Prussia is more serious, etc.
The Nyos are not exactly regular characters in Hetalia, so I personally think it’s alright for people to write them as they see fit. You want to write fem!America as pretty much the same as her male counterpart? That’s fine! You want to portray her as more down-to-earth and intelligent than male!America? That’s fine too!
Can’t say my hypothetical male counterpart would be an exact carbon-copy of myself, but I’m fairly certain we’d share a few of the same personality traits and interests. c: And I think the same would apply to the Nyotalia girls (and guys).
