Author has written 21 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers, Hunger Games, Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, and Attack on Titan/進撃の巨人.

Yo, Espresso Yourself, formerly Domingo Pinguinos here. Not sure if I'm gonna be very active with my Hetalia fics - kind of grew out of that one, but there's one (Amsterdam) that I'm looking into. I'm mainly here in conjunction with my AO3 account of the same username. Got bored, so I decided to revive this account with some of my more recent writing in different fandoms.

I am a lady that is a fan of Free!, Magi: Magic of the Labyrinth, Attack on Titan, Sherlock, and Welcome to Night Vale, among other things. I generally ship the ships and stuff, though you'll find I'm not much a fan of angst, and write primarily for Free! thus far. That is subject to change. I love horses and know a lot about them and love AU's so I may or may not do farm AU's and such. I'm the admin for , which is a baby blog that I'm very proud of thus far. My real tumblr, not so much. I speak Spanish and Arabic (this includes reading & writing) and enjoy studies of the law, human rights, and culture. I enjoy the Arab Ending AU for Free! and may or may not write one of my own based off of what I know from studying the culture. Could happen. Who knows? I also love travel, so the majority of my stories will take place in either multiple countries at times or foreign countries.

But when events take a turn for the disastrous, it'll take all their collective skill to make things right. SKW2017

Shota-Cake! reviews
Nagisa's smile was well worn now. Of course, he'd been overjoyed to hear of Rin's return - and with a fiancee, of all things - and he was pleased that he managed to give Makoto the needed encouragement to ask Haruka out after years of pining for him, but he never realized that this would leave him alone.
