Author has written 7 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers, Yu-Gi-Oh, Van Helsing, Avengers, Batman Begins/Dark Knight, Scandinavia and the World, and Assassin's Creed.
There are two things I love with a passion in the wide fandom world: 1) Hetalia, Axis Powers and 2) Yu-Gi-Oh, with a focus on the former. I especially enjoy crossovers about them!
Hetalia makes world history FUN (boring things interesting), Yugioh makes games FRIGHTENING (entertaining things scary).
Hetalia – Austria/Roderich Edelstein
Yugioh – Timaeus, the Legendary Knight
Pairings I like (or can tolerate) for Hetalia:
Historically based pairings, with an emphasize on the correct timeline.
1) Austria/Spain *marriage, the Habsburg Monarchy 1506~1700. Spain/Portugal *as...an affair?, the Iberian Union 1580~1640.
2) Austria/Hungary *marriage, the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy 1867~1918.
3) Germany/Austria/(Prussia), during WW2 1938~1945.
4) Russia/Prussia, 1947~1990. Prussia/Hungary *in secret, 1947~1989.
5) Japan/Taiwan, 1895~1945.
6) Denmark/(Norway)/Sweden *marriage, the Kalmar Union 1397~1523.
7) Poland/Lithuania *marriage, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth 1569~1795.
8) Czech Republic/Slovakia *marriage, Czechoslovakia 1918~1993.
*About the Habsburg Monarchy and the Kalmar Union.
Since I doubt Austria nor Spain was faithful during their marriage, and neither were Denmark and Sweden. So I won't mind them having affairs with their subordinates...as long as their objects of courtship were old enough not to make me wince.
Modern day pairings.
4) Switzerland -> Austria
5) Germany/N. Italy
6) Spain/S. Italy
7) the Netherlands/Belgium/(Luxemburg)
9) Belarus -> Russia/(Ukraine)
10) Lithuania -> Belarus
13) America/England and France/Canada
14) France/England and America/Canada
Pairings I like for Yugioh: Puzzleshipping, Tendershipping (but only if they share a body, damnit!)...and Polarshipping, Peachshipping.
Pairings I absolutely LOATH: Crack pairings that even the author couldn't explain.
1) Prussia/Canada, because this one is getting out of control (frustrated scream)! I mean, where does THIS even come from?! I have no problem with them being friends but SERIOUSLY!
2) Puppyshipping...no, just no.
*There are more I dislike but these two is the most serious case that whenever I (accidentally) see a mention of it in the mere story summary, I wince and want to poke my eyes out.
I've came across a few hetalia fanfiction that's vampire!AU, and I just notice something extremely amusing! And that's one can basically predict what kind of vampire story it's going to be base on which character(s) is being the vampire!
Horror, 30 Days of Night-style fic if Ivan Braginski/Russia is the vampire.
Blood/gore/violence and definitely humans as toys.
Action, Underworld or Van Helsing-type for vampire Gilbert Beilschmidt/Prussia.
There would always be (or at least a mention of) human vampire slayers, because there will never be a lack of action where the awesome Prussia go!
Bless The Awesome Me
Melodrama, Interview with the Vampire-type for when dear Roderich Edelstein/Austria is the cursed one.
And I...have yet to find one that fit into the extra weird Twilight-category.
But hopefully I wouldn't find one.
I love reading and writing crossovers, especially those about Hetalia (my absolute favorite)!
However, there are some things I just have to tell fellow Hetalia crossover writers as there's a strange (not to mention exasperatedly frustrating) phenomenon I can't help but frown upon.
Many characters from differing fandom were SOMEHOW made into nations/provinces/cities for whatever reasons.
Edward Elric and even Roy Mustang are particular prone to this in Hetalia/Fullmetal Alchemist crossovers, as is Kagome if the story is cross with Inuyasha, and Harry Potter for the HP books/movies...too name just a few.
I serious disdain these sort of thing. Even more than, dare I say it, OC countries that authors who didn't took the time to look up enough information on come up with on a whim (that have too forced personality, and strange hair/eye color).
I would rather writers creating an OC!Amestris than having Edward as one! Why? Because one can't just point and decide who's going to be a country!
If Edward becomes Amestris, he'll have to live the rest of his life knowing he's the one ultimately responsible for the death of Winry's parents, the sad end of Nina Tucker, and the existence of Homunculi (who, save Father, were most certainly Amestrians) that brought so much misery to so many people...and let's not start on the wars (Ishvalan War of Extermination is only ONE of them), the men sacrificed in the mutiple experiments for the Philosopher's Stone and so much more!
Somehow I doubt Edward can live with himself should that be true. He's too nice.
What I'm trying to say is, countries are all monsters by human standard.
They would steal, rape, torture, and slaughter should circumstances arise, most of the time without hesitation (nor regret) if it serves the purpose. They killed men by the thousands, betrayed friends and laid with enemies... And they could still laugh and go out to drink together the very next day like nothing had happened.
So please, refrain from making people into countries.
