Author has written 34 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers, Harry Potter, Stargate: SG-1, 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 one chapter out a week, but as I am a college student, I have my priorities.
Any who take up a bunny are free to write it however they like, with whatever pairing they like. Also, no Character/OC. In fact, no main character OCs in general (unless you have a good reason).
As for pairings in my 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.
EDIT: I'm going to try to diversify my pairings... AmeCan, AmeUkr, and RusCan are now my main three OTPs, with CanUkr and AmeBela coming in close behind. Might even generalize to Ame/World and Can/World in varied amounts (although USUK / Franada / PruCan are still on my 'ehh... no thanks' list).
EDIT 2: I might be branching into Homestuck soon! So yeah, fair warning, I might just get you into that fandom if you aren't already. I think most stories might focus on canon moments that were never expanded on or just otherwise explore the game? Because the Homestuck presence on this site is sadly lacking in ANYTHING other than bad romance / angst stories, and I must fix that at all costs.
((Note: When I use AmeCan or CanAme, I'm referring to whoever initiates the romance/relationship or who has the feelings first. Just to keep you from getting confused, since I don't write smut.))
My tumblr: http://ashynarr.tumblr.com/
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': 30385)
(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 colonization by the Nordics in our timeline.
My Hetalia (Head)Canon:
America 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 America's and Tony's stuff.
Canada 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 America tends to create most of these just for that purpose. Canada does it right back, though, so it's fair.
America and Canada 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.
America 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. Canada 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.
Canada's bear (and spirit animal) 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.
America's rabbit (and spirit animal) is Manabohzo, 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.
The boys' Native names are Maska (Strong) for America and Kanata (Village) for Canada.
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 America (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.
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 (6/37 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
Us Against The World (Hetalia) "Many European and Asian Nations are sick of America constantly getting involved in their affairs, so they start to hatch a plan to make him back down for good... too bad they didn't count on Canada's loyalty to his twin, or their unexpected allies..." In Progress (13/30?) (Bunny 8) HIATUS, to be rewritten
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)
The Supersize Pair (Hetalia) "I need more AmeUkr in my life. Heck, everyone needs more AmeUkr in their life.

Ongoing (2/Many), AmeUkr, fluff/romance
The World is Transforming Around Us (Hetalia) "North Korea, after a fainting spell reveals the state of his people to his new boss, starts to come out of his isolation and rejoin the world community. Luckily for him, a certain hero is there to help." ((Based on US/N. Korea diplomatic deal)) Oneshot, OC North Korea
Always There to Catch You (Hetalia) "It was a fact that Canada had poor luck when it came to relationships with the other Nations. It was also a fact that America would be there every time to catch him when things fell through." Twoshot, AmeCan, Can/Others, Fluff
The Best Defense is a Preemptive Offense (Hetalia) "Because the best way to protect your vital regions is your twin's flag on your ass." Oneshot, Prequel to 'Is It Love?'
First of July (Hetalia) "It's the first of July, and while his party might not be as big or extravagant as his brother's, he still gets to enjoy a day that's focused on him." Oneshot, family/friendship fluff. For Canada Day! (An original story where people don't forget his birthday.)
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!)
Canon vs Fanon (Hetalia) "Because as great as the webcomic and anime are, there's a reason fanon tends to expand on the characters instead of leaving them 'canon'..." Oneshot
DEFCON 0 (Hetalia) "America, as many have noted, spends more on his military than the next sixteen countries combined. Why does he do that?

I Do Love You (Hetalia) "After a long day hanging out together, an exhausted America falls asleep on his brother's lap. It's only at times like this that Canada will admit to his feelings..." Oneshot, CanAme, Fluff
Love You Forever (Hetalia) "They were best friends, and for a brief time they were more. But time and history seemed to be against them... but have either of them really forgotten what they had?" Oneshot, AmeCan, Fluff
Wolf Moon (Hetalia) "For the past few months, Alfred has been disappearing on seemingly random nights, only to return the following day. One night, Matthew decides to follow him, and discovers a world he never knew existed..." Oneshot, Human AU, Were!Alfred & Francis, Vamp!Ivan & Arthur, past FrUK
So You're Not Angry? (Hetalia) "When America finds out his brother is dating his former enemy, the reaction... isn't quite what anyone expected. Except maybe Russia." Oneshot, RusCan ft. Ame
Fire Fire Burning Bright (Hetalia) "It is August 24th, 1814. After another victory against American troops, a joint Canadian/British force took control of Washington and burned it down. However, what the history books fail to mention are the two brothers who met and reconciled while the American capital burned around them..." Oneshot, Gift for Dixie C. Jones for her fanart
Sadness (Hetalia) "Walker-friend doesn't smile much anymore. His voice is slow and quiet too. I wonder what's making him so sad lately?" Oneshot, implied death, limited animal POV

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
News Reel (Hetalia) "Separate interviews of the North American twins lead some people to notice an interesting parallel between the two..." Oneshot
--Character Study Oneshots--

Too bad America gets involved..." In Progress (10/25?), AmeCan aka Slash/Yaoi (Bunny 3) HIATUS, to be rewritten
Hero Training (Hetalia/Avengers) "Being a hero is more than just about beating the bad guys. It's also about teamwork, learning your strengths and weaknesses, and allowing others to help you up when you fall. 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." In Progress (3/?)
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. But things have a way of quickly becoming complicated, pushing America and others to their limits as they find themselves embroiled in galactic politics and intrigue throughout the stars." In Progress (2/?)
The Lost Colonies of Vinland (Hetalia) "In 1960, the remains of two Norse villages were discovered in Canada and carefully excavated and recreated over the next few decades. With their discovery comes old memories for the twins and a past no one could have expected..." Complete (4/4) (Bunny 7)
