Author has written 14 stories for D N Angel, Kingdom Hearts, Ouran High School Host Club, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.
Like the name says.
Romerica has taken this account over! Not that I particularly mind. Romano and America have such great chemistry together they're almost irresistable to write. Add to that the other nations and you've got a bubbling gumbo of awesome. Omnom.
Currently 2 fics in progress: 'Educating America' and 'Misconceptions'. A sequel is planned for 'Educating America'. After I finish 'Misconceptions' I intend to start on an AU period fic set in ancient Rome, featuring our Italy boys, Grandpa Rome, slave!Ludwig and slave!Alfred. I'm still doing the research for that one, and it should run at the same time as the sequel to 'E.A' (tentatively titled 'The Courtship of South Italy').
After which are planned a cooking-teacher!Lovino/student!Alfred AU fic, a cop!AU fic, and businessman!AU fic. I'm flirting with the idea of a post-apocalyptic!nation Romerica.
Of course, scattered throughout all of this will probably be several Romerica one-shots, which may turn into stories because it is hard as heck for me to write a one-shot without it turning into a story, dammit.
Also in the works (by request) are a Prussia/Austria, and England/Japan. I'd like to do something with Hungary, 'cause let's face it, she's awesome and smokin' (rawr) but I'm not sure what, yet. Maybe a Male!Hungary fic and a Hungary/Someone, we'll see.
I was going to say something else, but I don't remember what at the moment, so perhaps another time. Ah- in parting, I should warn you that as I've lived most of my life overseas (I'm American-born, world-raised) I have a tendency to switch back and forth between American English and British Colony English without realizing it. So I apologize for any confusion that may cause (it confuses me, since my brain can't tell the difference).
FANART! I Have Fanwork
Fanart for Copa de Amor! Alfred and Lovino plus cat! Adorable cat.
Cosplay! And even better? Romano in America's bomber cosplay! It's seriously adorable:
BHR's promised more Romerica cosplay soon, so keep an eye on that gallery, guys!
Made a picture for As the World Turns (it looks like a promotional poster, I love it XD):
Check out their other Romerica works while you're there! They make my heart go pitter-pat.
drew a scene from chapter 42 of Educating America you've got to see— it came out pretty much as I envisioned it as I was writing the scene:. Lovely, right? (I also highly recommend their Romerica fic 'Tidal Flow'. Also check out their other Romerica art! Seriously adorable.)
sketched a cute little Romerica pic which you can catch here:
has drawn an adorable and very apt picture of Romano and America in Educating America (poor Romano looks so confused):
liked puppy!America so much, they put together this adorable little number (my, puppy!America is popular! I had no idea people would like the idea so much XD):
quite thoughtfully sketched up Romano in America's jacket for me, check it out, and stay to ogle her other works while you're there:
sent me an absolutely gorgeousfanart, you have to see this:
Solians in Luna
has started a doujin version of Educating America, here:
sketched up Romano in America's jacket, which is always adorable:
drew some criminally cute Romerica chibis, too:
and Romano in America's bomber here:(and man, seriously I cannot get enough of Romano in that jacket, guys).
self explanatory XD
Created this absolutely beautiful AMV- much of it with their own art! h
S.I.N. Fan Girl:
made an AMV for Educating America- go forth and marvel!
Bloody fantastic editing, take a look! I didn't even like this song, but the timing and story told in the amv is so apt it made me enjoy it. (They're totally right about the art- draw Romerica if you can, there just isn't enough. )
...and several more! Check her Yutube profile for more awesome videos. Again, some lovely editing and creative use of available art for these two.
And more! Check her Youtube profile to watch, you won't regret it.

: Ask our boys a question, and see what they say! You won't be disappointed. (it's nicely in-character thus far)
Hetalia Official Stuff
I check these frequently, both for fun and also for reference. Before I start writing I read all the strips which feature any of the characters I plan on including in the scene or chapter, to help me get a feel for the characterization and motivation of the characters*. Sometimes if I'm stuck or need inspiration or just feel like it, I also check the 'image' archives for all pictures and random art/sketches/pics etc that feature a character, as well. (You may recognise which strips inspired certain scenes).
Himaruya's blog (In Japanese, so)
His request fills:
Himaruya's Basic Color Palate for Characters:
Blog(Himaruya basically says that although he changes the colors sometimes slightly from illustration to illustration, this is his 'standard' for their hair/eye/skin color, and hopes it makes sense to people looking at it.)
Hetalia File Archive (scanlated and translated. A plethora of goodies, images, art, sound and games and basically anything official/Hetalia-related. Mostly newer strips, though):Also, check out their livejournal for newest updates (hit the 'Official site' and 'Official scanslation' tags for the good stuff.)
Hetalia Scanlations (The older strips! Here's the meat and marrow.)
'Thaw, of course, is the exception, since it's free-flow. I use no references for it. Which twits me a bit since I'm a reference/research junkie (naiiilllls on the chalkboard of my psyche), but I want to try and rely on the knowledge I already have for that particular fic, and I kind of don't want to spend too much time on it, since it's experimental/cathartic.
03/2013 I'm still alive and writing, when I can. Updates have been on temporarily on hold (you may have noticed), largely because I have been seriously sidelined by health issues which have frequently left me pretty much incapacitated for sometimes weeks at a time. I will update all my stories and they will be finished, unless of course I die, which is unlikely, so no worries there. It'll just take a fair bit longer than I originally expected.
So don't worry! Updates will come eventually. I can't say the quality will be great (the fact that I just can't perform up to standard is one of the things holding updates back, I'll admit), but I promise I'll do my best.
