I've done it. I've made a Tumblr. Come one, come all :)
So I've been on this site for six and a half years, and every year has been so, so worth it. And although I'm really beating a dead horse, I just can't stand to leave Hetalia; it grabbed me in 2009 and hasn't let go since.
To users, old and new -- I apologize for my early fics. But I haven't the heart to delete them.
People of note:
"Pain is weakness leaving the body."
"Never give up."
"Well, the (''') of Microsoft Word had a certain grace to it; like how the way the line is shaped, how it is presented, and how it heightens the beauty of a poem. It's like taking some of the regal-ness authors tried so hard to present in their work away - it happened so suddenly, and it's a stab in the soul of writing that the few writers here possess, it's destroying a pivotal part away from a work, taking away the aesthetic appeal from those that can see simple beauty in (''') and it's like ripping away a small treasure from a child who hasn't had the time to realize how wonderful it was."

"The world is a chock full of bitchy girls."
"Goodness me, a stick. How helpful. We could take this place single-pawed with a stick. What a useful thing to send us."
"A singer can shatter a glass with the proper high note, but the simplest way for anyone to break a glass is simply to drop it on the floor."
"Poor Armand. And you told me Louis was dead. Go dig a room for yourself under the Lafayette cemetery. It's just up the street."
"And just what can a handful of hateful twentieth-century fledglings do anyway? These idiot creatures use the telephone for their threats."
"You jump, I jump, remember?"
Omi: I ORDER YOU TO SPILL YOUR INTERNAL ORGANS RIGHT NOW!
"What makes a warrior strong is not the weapon -- but the warrior holding the weapon."

"There are times when a man has to stand up for his rights -- but he never has to hate."
"My master! and who made him my master? That's what I think of -- what right has he to me? I'm a man as much as he is. I'm a better man than he is. I know more about business than he does; I am a better manager than he is; I can read better than he can; I can write a better hand, -- and I've learned it all myself, and no thanks to him, -- I've learned it in spite of him; and now what right has he to make a dray-horse of me? -- to take from me things I can do, and do better than he can, and put me to work that any horse can do?"
"But you miss the point, my pet. They aren't successful and so they aren't affronting the hot Southern pride of their men folks. The men can still say, 'Poor sweet sillies, how hard they try! Well, I'll let them think they're helping.' And besides, the ladies you mentioned don't enjoy having to work. They let it be known that they are only doing it until some man comes along to relieve them of their unwomanly burdens. And so everybody feels sorry for them. But obviously you do like to work and obviously you aren't going to let any man tend to your business for you, and so no one can feel sorry for you. And Atlanta is never going to forgive you for that. It's so pleasant to feel sorry for people."

"GOOD GOD!! CONSIDER YOURSELVES FORTUNATE THAT YOU HAVE JOHN ADAMS TO ABUSE, FOR NO SANE MAN WOULD TOLERATE IT!!"
John Adams: If you don't want to see us hanging from some far-off British hill; if you don't want the voice of independence forever stilled, then, God, Sir, get thee to it -- for Congress...never...wiiiiill! You see, we piddle, twiddle, and resolve; not one damn thing do we solve. Piddle, twiddle, and resolve; nothing's ever solved! -- in foul! fetid! fuming! foggy! filthyyyy! Philadelphiaaaa!
