Author has written 49 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers, Harry Potter, Stargate: SG-1, Homestuck, and Avengers.
Hi! Welcome to my Profile! I'm Ashynarr, a name I got by fortunate happenstance (aka I hit my keyboard when I couldn't think of a good name, 'Ashy' popped up, and I finished it off after staring at the screen for a bit in surprise). You can call me Ash or Ashy, but do not compare me to the brat from Pokemon.
I'll write primarily Hetalia, with sides of lots of other fandoms. Updates happen when I have time, inspiration, and/or want to get something out. I'll try my best to get at least a few updates a week, but as I am a college student, I have my priorities.
Anyone who takes up a bunny is free to write it however they like, with whatever pairing they like, although I ask for no Character/OC. I just - usually don't find them all that well written, and there's plenty of canon characters to use, really. Think about using Cameroon or Kenya or Thailand before coming up with a new character!
(Yes, I know this is a bit hypocritical since I write State OC fics, but in my favor I am not shipping any of them with canon characters, only each other in like one or two cases.)
(If you DO use an idea of mine or take up a bunny, expect me to place it in my personal Community for ease of access, both for myself and for others. Hey, I'm allowed to be a bit egotistical and believe one day I will have many many stories prompted by my will...)
As for pairings in my own stories... I'll probably just stick to AmeCan (my OTP), but I can try just about anything (as long as there's justification for the pairing). However, I probably won't use pairings unless it's a plot point or it's just a fluff piece. I'll post short non-AmeCan ships in the Rare Pair Files, and Homestuck stuff in the Little Skaia Things.
If there's something you'd like to see, just ask! If it draws my interest I'll probably jot it down and get to it at some point. This holds especially true for Vinland!verse, because as it stands I have no idea for what I wanna do with it but I wanna make it popular none the less.

I spend quite a bit of time on tumblr, and there's lots of things I post there before I post it here (and sometimes vice verse...), so yeah, check it out!
(Number of people I have converted to calling Canada's bear 'Nanuq': 54736)
(I would love fanart! Feel free to submit it, and I'll write a oneshot for you! I'll do anything but smut.)
Now, on to all the important information:
The Three Laws of Ashynarr's Hetalia Stories:
1. All notes listed below are to be considered canon for all of my stories, unless said story is an AU. In such cases, I will mention what is changed in the story notes (the section at the top of each chapter).
2. All real life events are to be considered canon unless said event is in direct conflict with Law 1 or (again) an AU.
3. All events portrayed in Himaruya's webcomic and/or the anime are to be considered canon unless in direct conflict with Laws One and/or Two, or (again) an AU.
Add. DO NOT TOUCHETH UPON RECENT EVENTS, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN RELATION TO DEATHS OR OTHER TRAGEDIES! IT COMETH OFF AS OFFENSIVE AND IGNORANT TO THE SUFFERING OF PEOPLE WHO LIVETH THROUGH THOSE EVENTS! (Avoid tragedies within the last twenty years, and if you stick to at least fifty years you're generally safe.)
Add. 2. Vinland!verse is NOT canonverse! It is specifically a separate timeline distinct unto itself, and in my normal stories the twins are NOT Vinland, seeing as there was no successful longterm colonization by the Nordics in our timeline.
My Hetalia (Head)Canon:
Alfred F. Jones isn't stupid or oblivious. He just hates how serious everyone is all the time and tries to lighten the atmosphere by playing dumb. He knows a world map fairly well, although he does sometimes mix up countries he doesn't know much about. His biggest issue is the missing filter between his brain and his mouth, leading to him often saying things before thinking them through.
Most of the time he tends to act his (human) age around others, but he's still a fairly responsible person, doing his paperwork on time and keeping both his colonial era home (located in the middle of nowhere in West Virginia) and his modern apartment (located in New York City) tidy and clean. Tony and Kaleo (his whale) live at the former, as the latter is much too small for them and all of Alfred's and Tony's stuff.
Matthew Williams is not invisible, nor is he quiet. He isn't loud like his brother, but he does talk at a normal volume. Insult his sport or say one of the things he invented is actually someone else's invention and he will not hesitate to 'correct' you. Painfully. He's also polite, but not as much as the stereotype makes him out to be. It's more a force of habit from living with England for so long rather than genuine niceness (in most cases).
He also tends to act his human age, though less so than his brother. Besides the general stereotypes of loving hockey, maple syrup (and sweets in general), winter, and his northern fauna and flora (all true), he's also rather fond of seafood, board games, and messing with foreigners (and foreign Nations in particular) by claiming every stupid rumor about Canadians is one thousand percent accurate. It helps that Alfred tends to create most of these just for that purpose. Matthew does it right back, though, so it's fair.
Alfred and Matthew are bros from the beginning to the end. No romance between them in my stories (unless it's an important plot point or it's just a oneshot fluff piece). They are very close, however, and an attack on one is an attack on both. They are very comfortable around each other, and can talk about things they'd rarely, if ever, talk about with anyone else.
The twins can generally be told apart by the other Nations, though mostly by how each dresses and speaks. When they want to mess with the others, they'll dress up as each other or else identically and mimic each other's speech patterns. It never fails to entertain.
Alfred actually speaks (with varying degrees of fluency) almost every living language on Earth thanks to his lack of language barrier (what with no official language - a fortunate oversight) and constant influx of native speakers. Matthew also has a few languages under his belt, though not nearly to the extent of his brother. They both still remember the Native languages they grew up learning from their spirit animals, although they rarely use it nowadays.
Matthew's bear is Nanuq, because he would have a Native name, not a Japanese one. He's a spirit and was the one who made Canada an ace shot.
Alfred's rabbit is Nanabohzo, another Native spirit. He's a bit crazy, but well-meaning. He's also the reason for America's hero-complex and love of animals.
Yes, the twins know quite a bit about Native magics. However, they are not necessarily experts on the matter, and neither really uses it, and in addition they know little of European or Asian magics. Mythology, on the other hand, is Alfred's strong suit (due to his archaeology hobby), and he's had plenty of time to learn a lot of it.
Tony has tons of tech and stuff from all over the galaxy. Most of it is kept in a separate part of the house from everything else so that people don't accidentally run across it and use it. This includes Alfred (unless under supervision by said alien).
Normally a Nation cannot affect their people, but in extreme cases they can influence their thoughts and/or emotions, although this can generally only be done through powerful magic and/or drugs.
It used to be that if any of the nations were in any kind of relationship, they had to keep it hidden, or risk that person/nation being used against them, or them being used against their love. If another nation, or someone, knew about their relationship, then they were a very, very close friend. In recent years, the need for this has dulled, a lot, but it is still common practice to keep any romantic interests hidden for a while.

My Stories: Almost all of my stories will focus on America (Alfred) and Canada (Matthew), due to them being my favorite characters. Even in crossovers they will be main characters and not just afterthoughts, because they deserve more than that.
Us Against The World (Hetalia)
Aliens Are Weird (Hetalia) "Tony kidnapped Canada and put alien eggs into him. Now America is taking care of him until they can get the eggs removed, but maybe some other things will come out, too..." Complete (6/6) AmeCan, 'mpreg', De-anon from kink meme
Matters of the Heart (Hetalia) "Love is a complicated thing, especially when the person you love loves someone else. One day, after being rejected by France again in favor of England, Canada asks America, England's crush, to start dating the island Nation so that he stands a chance with France, unaware of America's feelings for him. The chain reaction this starts can only end one way..." Complete (12/12), De-anon from kink meme, Eventual AmeCan and FrUK
Operation Love Life (Hetalia) "America’s got a couple problems. One, he can’t get close to Ukraine because of her brother always watching her, and two, Canada won’t stop complaining about his lack of a love life. Of course, America just so happens to have the solution to both problems in his latest idea, but will Canada and Russia go for it?" Complete (5/5) RusCan, AmeUkr, not to be taken seriously
Shadow (Hetalia) "All America wanted was a friend who wouldn't leave him. All the Shadow wanted was a meal. When the two meet, neither had any idea just how they would affect the world..." Complete (4/4), De-anon from kink meme, Shadow!Canada (Bunny 25)
French-Canadian Way (Hetalia) "In canon, Matthew was raised by Francis and Arthur, but didn't turn out too much like either on the surface. What if he'd taken after his founding Nations just a bit more?" In Progress (7/12?), CanAme, French!Mattie
Across The Mirror (Hetalia) "Alfred and Tommy met through magic, but stuck together through a mutual kinship borne by more than their mirrored identities. After centuries of friendship, they've reached a comfortable state of affairs between them, but what will happen when Tommy ends up severely injured where Alfred can't help?" In Progress (6/?), 1p2pAme, 2p!Verse Headcanons
Bunnies For Your Amusement (Hetalia) "A bunch of cute and/or serious story ideas featuring my favorite Hetalia bros – America and Canada! May or may not be pairings depending on story." Ongoing/Idea Dump (6/51 Filled)
North American Hurricane (Hetalia) "In the same vein as Bunnies For Your Amusement, I now bring you my collection of Hetalia Kink Meme oneshots and short stories featuring the North American twins, America and Canada! Now includes non-LJ drabbles." Ongoing/Idea Dump
The Rare Pair Files (Hetalia) "Since there are a lot of rare pair that are, well, rare, I decided to dedicate a little side collection of all the ones I write from here on out, however often I end up doing so." Ongoing/Idea Dump, Mostly America or Canada centric pairings.
Canon vs Fanon (Hetalia) "Because sometimes the fandom needs to be reminded what canon is actually like..." Ongoing/Idea Dump
AmeCan Ice Creamery (Hetalia) "Since I know I have followers who do like AmeCan and those who don't, I've decided that the best solution is to make a new drabble archive to hold all my specifically shippy stuff. AmeCan, Canadacest, and Americacest all included in here." Ongoing/Idea Dump, AmeCan, Canadacest, Americacest, fluff/romance

Adventures of the Golden State (Hetalia) "Under much protest and complaint, I've decided that since I have nowhere else to put these, I'm going to share some of my state OC drabbles to see how people like them. Mostly focused on California, but will feature other states." Ongoing/Idea Dump, State OCs
Thunderbird (Hetalia) "There was a time where spirits ruled the world, but they all eventually died away as human faith in them faded. A few of the warier ones, however, managed to find their own ways around the issue..." Ongoing/Idea Dump, Slight AU

--Alternate Universe Stories--
Across the Pond (Hetalia/Harry Potter)
Hero Training (Hetalia/Avengers) "Being a hero is more than just about beating the bad guys.

It's about small choices having big effects, and taking responsibility for your actions. Ultimately, it's about making the right choice, even when facing your worst fears." Complete (21/21)
The Star Gate Program (Hetalia/Stargate SG-1) "It was the discovery of the century. A device older than human civilization, capable of transporting people across the galaxy in an instant.

In Progress (23/?)
Suitable Wereiness (Hetalia) "An otherwise routine day working as a wildlife vet is interrupted by the arrival of the most unusual wolf captured by a poacher’s trap.

Fourth of July (Hetalia) "Now it's the fourth, and it's the other twin's turn to celebrate! Of course, being America, he has to make it big and flashy... but that doesn't mean the small things don't matter." Oneshot, family/friendship fluff. For Independence Day! (Sequel of First of July!)
DEFCON 0 (Hetalia) "America, as many have noted, spends more on his military than the next sixteen countries combined. Why does he do that?

Alfred's Day Off (Hetalia) "Just because you happen to be one of the few people who knows about the existence of aliens doesn't mean you're always stuck working to keep the knowledge away from everyone else – even Nations like Alfred need a break from that sort of thing occasionally!"

Upside (Hetalia) "There are upsides and downsides to being so closely and intrinsically tied to the world's current superpower, as in most things. Matthew finds moments like this, with his brother willingly helpless under him, the only sounds either of them making hushed and heavy with breath as they move together, to be one of the upsides." Oneshot, smut, CanAme
Down The Rabbit Hole (Hetalia) "While looking for his friend Lars' missing pet rabbit, Alfred accidentally stumbles across a passageway to Wonderland, and ends up catching the eye of the mysterious Cheshire Cat. Now if only he could find his way home..." hinted AmeCan, human AU, Looking Glass AU
Are We Dating? (Hetalia) "Movie nights with his bro are the best part of any week in the mind of Alfred F. Jones, world hero. Well, at least when he's not waiting for Mattie to get back with the snacks. ...maybe he shouldn't be left alone for more than two minutes." AmeCan, Oneshot
