| Hello 2/26/13 . chapter 7
I'm British and I honestly don't think our tea or coffee is that strong at all! On an average day I would have about two cups of tea (In my novelty Marmite mug, of course). Our coffe is actually pretty nice. Tea is much nicer though, MUCH nicer. I think nearly every person in the Country starts their day with a cup just so they can stay awake for a couple of hours! SO MUCH CAFFINE.
Anyway, love your story. It's so cute! I was trying so hard not to cry in some bits. That would have looked weird to my family. Is it strange that after Hetalia, my friend and I sometimes start crying when someone mentions the Revloutionary War? Oh well, keep calm and carry on being an awesome writer!

D'aw, this story was really cute. You did a good job of writing a subdued America and I liked his sweet relationship with Canada. It was nice to see that he also bought tickets for Canada when he got play tickets for England. I thought that was a nice touch to show America treating them both as brothers.
I had a couple suggestions-first, you mention a few times that England is sick, but we only read about his hangover. Being sick usually involves some symptoms, so it would have helped to show a few of them by having him sneeze or think about aches a few times. Not a whole lot, just enough to add some description of his illness.
Second, I liked how America described his desire for independence as a desire to be an equal and to be his own person. However, I thought a few of their discussions ended up with very long paragraphs and an overabundance of ellipses. Ellipses are a little like exclamation points, and should be used sparingly. If you want to show pauses during these discussions, you might also consider dialogue tags mentioning pauses, long silences, or some physical action that England takes while he's talking (like pausing to sip the juice).
Thank you for the cute story! I really like the title :)

SO CUTE. I read this story while cuddling with my Iggy plushie and squealing at the adorablness of this whole thing. It's just the cutest thing ever, and it's so hard to find adorable England and America fluff that isn't yaoi related. And brotherly France is adorable. X3 But nice work, I really love this. X3

Kawaiiiiiii! That was sooooo sweet! England and America are my favorite hetalia characters, but france and Canada were so sweet in this that I fell in love with them. Loved it!

'Canada strikes me as a morning person?'
Remember when he ran in late, saying "I'm sorry everyone, but this morning something horrible occured...when I woke up, it was half past noon!"
This was written before I read the actual chapter. So far, I like the story :)

Aww The air is full of fluff.
Great job. Although it was a bit odd to see America without all of the hyperactive talk and movement, he still seemed in character. And I love how you've done England and Canada. By the way, don't feel bad about not realizing Canada until the end of that chapter. I live in Canada and didn't notice until you mention it. Or until someone tells me on the real thing -.-;
I'm a bad Canadian. Oh well.
America calling England all those times is something I totally see as well. Very, very well. And although America annoys me to no end, I quite enjoyed your fic. Very cute. As well as all of the points about England being well done.
I also didn't notice the spelling of the title until you mentioned it. In Canada we spell with 'u's as well.
