Author has written 15 stories for Fullmetal Alchemist, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.
Hey everyone! I'm seventeen years old and I'm a writer. Seriously, food and water is optional but give me a pen and I'll write forever. I live in Australia at the moment, but I'm English originally. I'm not as clever as I think I am and not nearly as funny as I am in my head. I excel at daydreaming, making obscure pop culture references at inappropriate moments, bursting into laughter for no particular reason and standing around looking awkward. I know way more than I should about topics that are completely irrelevant to everyday life and not nearly enough about common sense. I spend far too much time reading, writing, watching anime and surfing the Internet and think way more than can possibly be good for me.
I get really attached to characters and they're usually one of my favourite parts of any series I read/write/watch, so it's always fun to put them in different situations and play around with them. It's also a brilliant way for me to practise writing when my creative juices are a bit clogged; the world and characters are already there and I know I love them, so there's always something I can write. It actually helps to inspire my original work. My favourite series is actually Fullmetal Alchemist (Brotherhood FTW) and I love a whole bunch of different animes and mangas, but I mainly write for the Hetalia fandom because I adore history and culture. There's just something that gets me about Hetalia fics - they can be so cracky and hilarious, but at the same time you can get such meaningful and poignant stories... It's easily my favourite to read/write fanfiction for.
So... hi! Stick around for a bit, read some of my stories, maybe post a few reviews (please do; it's immensely inspiring to know that people actually read and enjoy what I write). I can tell you and I are going to be best friends.
Ships On Which I Sail:
PrussiaXHungary. Possibly-probably my Hetalia OTP. I just... I love these guys. You have no idea.
AustriaXHungary. Though I might live and die a Pruhunner, there'll always be a special little place in my heart for Austria.
SpainXRomano. These two. I just. SPAMANO. I love both Spain and Romano individually and when you put them together they're better than the sum of their parts, and that's saying something.
AmericaXRussia. My America OTP. THESE TWO. Oh my God. Could your relationship BE any more dark and messed-up and paradoxical? If you have a couple of hours I'd be glad to tell you why thinking about AmeRus can make me break down in public.
TaiwanXJapan. I have a multichapter for these guys long in the works. All I'll say about it is: you think these two are too sugary-sweet? Ha. Hahaha. HahaHAHAHAHAhahaHAHAHAHAhaha. HA.
SwitzerlandXAustria. Oh, belligerent sexual tension.
LithuaniaXBelarus. Because Lithuania deserves to get what he wants for once in his life, and he'll probably be good for Belarus anyway.
AmericaXBelarus. It so shouldn't work, but it so can. Especially in Cold War based fics. Come on. Russia's little sister? YES.
AmericaXVietnam. Before Fires of Saigon I was all up for any variation on this, but since then I've been seriously creeped out by any fics with America and northern or current-day Vietnam (headcanon alert), so this should really be AmericaXSouthVietnam.
GermanyXItaly. How can you NOT?
Soooo I have a North Korea OC. And have done for ages. I'm massively interested in North Korea as a country and spend a great deal of time researching it. It's so fascinating and so emotionally devastating at the same time, and the fact that it's just so different to anything I've ever known is insane to me. I've poured a great deal of love into this character but I haven't really given him any exposure because I can't draw for shit and I don't have enough time to get into rping. He's been in Fires of Saigon, An Earthquake in Minsk and The Death of a Leader, but he's never really had his own story. Hopefully I will eventually change this. But before that, I thought it was time I gave Yong-Hwa a glimpse of the outside world.
My profile obviously doesn't have a comments section, but please treat my inbox as one. _ If you have any thoughts or opinions at all, please flick them my way even if you think they're insignificant. I'd love to know someone's read this.
Name: Im Yong-Hwa.
Physical Age: About nineteen or twenty.
Weight: 152 lbs. This is all muscle. He has almost no excess body fat.
Hair: Black and chopped short. Like South Korea's but not as long. He has a similar ohage that he constantly tries to flatten and tame, with varying degrees of success.
Eye Colour: Dark brown, almost black.
Yong-Hwa is and always has been an unusually serious nation. He's very intelligent and places a lot of value on logic, taking great care over his calculations and planning meticulously for every situation. In his own mind, he is the picture of sense and perfectionism. He sets himself rules, regulations and parameters and rarely deviates from them; schedule and routine make his life bearable. For instance, he wakes up at four thirty every single morning and puts himself through rigorous physical training exercises. This also serves the dual-purpose of preparing his mind and body for when he is inevitably invaded by western imperialists and providing him with a convenient explanation for the sharp pains and throbbing aches he constantly feels. He is also extremely stubborn; once he decides he's going to do something, he will pursue his goals doggedly until he achieves his aim.
Yong-Hwa's seriousness is evident to anyone who meets him, even if only for a short time. He sits straight-backed, rarely blinks or looks away and never shows emotion. However, this doesn't mean he doesn't have any. Far from it. Yong-Hwa has been fighting a battle with his emotions for decades. Even more so than America and South Korea, they are his enemies. If Yong-Hwa allows himself to feel emotion, all hell breaks loose. His painstakingly-laid plans fall to pieces as soon as his enemy makes him angry. Excitement or happiness cause him to spill secrets. Love or concern makes him doubt the very foundations of his existence. So he keeps them tightly locked away, forcing himself to exist on a carefully chosen combination of love for his Dear Leader and complete emotional emptiness.
During the latest period of his history, he has developed the ability to 'doublethink'. His people are starving and dying, but they're also prosperous, healthy and joyful. His country is slowly beginning to fall apart, but it's also a beautiful, perfect utopia. His government spies on and manipulates and abuses his people beyond imagination, but they're also a benevolent protective force that works only for the good of the DPRK. As long as he can keep those ideas precariously balanced in his mind, he can continue to exist without issue.
Yong-Hwa has earned the title 'The Hermit Kingdom' through being both fiercely independent and extremely antisocial. He rarely meets other countries face to face and, if he does, tends to put them so on edge they can barely concentrate. He has an unusually stiff demeanour and an incredibly intense stare that gets focused directly on the person talking, which makes most rooms containing Yong-Hwa unusually silent. Since separating from his twin brother, he has been absolutely determined to succeed in his own right and often refuses offers of help from other nations, even if he desperately needs it. His greatest dream is to become completely self-sufficient and to reunify with his brother.
Yong-Soo and Yong-Hwa have spent centuries of history together as brothers. Before their split, they were absolutely inseparable. They completed each other; Yong-Soo's happy-go-lucky nature and sense of humour would soften Yong-Hwa's seriousness, and Yong-Hwa's logic and diligence would balance out Yong-Soo's laziness and procrastination. However, there were a few things about his brother that annoyed him. If Yong-Soo and Yong-Hwa were both set to the same task, they would go about it very different ways. Yong-Hwa would work at it to the best of his ability, pouring in all his time and effort to come up with the best possible result. Yong-Soo would muck about, take a nap and sit around eating kimchi before throwing something together at the last minute. And Yong-Soo's offering would always be better than Yong-Hwa's. While that didn't make him love his brother any less, it did bother him.
The twentieth century was a time of great turmoil for both of them. They supported each other through a brutal Japanese occupation and it was during that time that Yong-Hwa developed his dream of complete independence and self-sufficiency. Like many Koreans, they were forced to come and work in Japan and were in Nagasaki when the bomb fell. When the dust and the chaos cleared, Japan had surrendered and Yong-Hwa had been saved from the wreckage by Ivan Braginsky. The first thing he thought to do was check that Yong-Soo was okay. Ivan informed him that his brother had been rescued by Alfred F. Jones, but he wouldn't be talking to him. Over the next few years, Yong-Hwa spent almost all his time in Ivan's company. The bigger nation treated him like a friend, an ally, and like a student. He came to realise that the reason Ivan was so powerful, and so independent, was through a system he called communism. Yong-Hwa threw himself so thoroughly into this new idea that by the time he and Yong-Soo met again, they were both unrecognisable to each other.
The Korean War was inevitable. Backed by Ivan and Yao, Yong-Hwa invaded his twin brother and nearly conquered him. By the time an armistice was signed three years later, their new status as enemies was set in stone.
Today, the only time Yong-Soo and Yong-Hwa see each other is through extremely tense meetings or occasional glimpses over the DMZ. They never speak directly. Yong-Hwa hates his brother, but he also loves him more than life itself and misses him so much it makes him want to rip his heart out. But he can never let anyone know that.
Ivan Braginsky is Yong-Hwa's mentor, the one who introduced him to the way of life he so loyally follows to this day. However, relations between them aren't quite as warm as they used to be. When Ivan was an ideal, a role model he could try and emulate, Yong-Hwa loved him almost like a father. But now he's fallen to the evils of capitalism and abandoned his comrades, he can't quite shake the feelings of hurt and betrayal. Yong-Hwa can never quite forgive him for what he suffered after the Soviet Union collapsed and all aid to his country stopped. Nevertheless, Ivan is still classified as one of his more amicable international relations.
Although he will deny it if anyone asks, Yong-Hwa is still incredibly dependent on Yao. Pyongyang's economy is almost entirely fuelled by China. His armed forces, his food and his fuel all largely come from his closest ally. Because of this, Yong-Hwa will act more warmly towards Yao than any other country on Earth. His behaviour wouldn't be classed as 'sucking up', per se, as much as constantly reminding him of their shared history and memories together. Lately, he's been feeling Yao's loyalty start to slip away, but he'll never stop clinging on.
The United States
Spawn of Satan. The devil incarnate. To say that Yong-Hwa hates Alfred would be putting it mildly. He hates him because he is the main source of capitalism, that disgusting western cultural pollution that threatens to overrun the planet and stamp out Korean culture. He hates him because he turned the United Nations against him and brought the world to push him back over the border in the Korean War. He hates him because he's the biggest military threat to his security and is constantly paranoid that one day, Alfred will decide that enough is enough, and he won't be able to defeat him. But most of all, he hates him because he's the one that took his brother away.
Yong-Hwa can never forgive him for the treatment he and Yong-Soo endured while under occupation. While he doesn't hate him quite as much as America, relations between the two are still very tense.
Yong-Hwa fought by her side in the Vietnam War and sees her as a comrade in arms, though the ending of her conflict somewhat disturbs him when he relates it to his own. Secretly, he admires her spirit and feistiness and would come to her aid again if she asked him. Although they're very different nations today and rarely speak in person, he nevertheless thinks fondly of her and considers her a friend. If you were a wholly impartial observer, you might say that he has a tiny little bit of a crush on her.
Contrary to popular belief, Yong-Hwa is not a terrible person. To other countries, especially countries that have established diplomatic relations with him and haven't done anything to offend him or his Dear Leader, he shows complete courtesy. He's not great at parties, but nothing less than polite. However, he knows what other nations think of him and almost expects to be attacked. If you insult him he will turn on you very quickly.
