You may have known me in a previous life as PixelatedFirefly. Or perhaps DrawingDays.
Feel free to send me messages/questions/concerns about stories. And if you'd just like to talk, that's okay, too!
One of my aspirations as an author on this site: I would like just one (only one!) story to get on the TV Tropes Recommendations Page. Well, that and perhaps get a piece of fan art. But, one step a time, hmm?

Greetings, fellow readers and writers! Welcome to my profile, where story schedules are constantly being changed, crack and uncommon pairings run amok, and where my stories, in all their mostly real-life oriented and sometimes ridiculous glow, are presented to you, my dear readers.
A little about me...
I'm a strange person - though I'm sure the people who follow me already know that, if my author's notes are anything to go by. My name is odd, so I won't bother to reveal it online, but if one wishes to refer to me by anything other than my username, feel free to make something up. I'd love to see your creativity.
I'm a huge history nerd (even before I found about Hetalia, thank you very much), love biology, and French is my worst enemy. I tend to ramble on about things (case in point), I'm hardly a romantic person, and I have no grace. I'm also hopelessly awkward. I hate liars, I don't smile as much as a normal person does, and have a horrible habit of keeping my face completely expressionless for hours at a time, therefore occasionally giving off the impression that I am either a bitch or I'm not capable of feeling emotions.
I use sarcasm far too much, my sense of humour is both dry and dark (excluding whatever the hell I used to make Hardly a Love Story as popular as it is), and I am hardly a popular person. I've traveled to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, France, The United States of America, and obviously, I live in Canada. I am planning to backpack across Europe once I graduate high school. I speak English, have a decent understanding of French, some German, some Spanish, some Italian, and a few words here and there in Icelandic. I am planning on learning German fluently within the coming months.
I upload too many stories, I prefer the more uncommon pairings to the popular ones, and I'm constantly experimenting with styles of writing and different genres. I am often plagued with insomnia, so my stories tend to be updated in the middle of the night or ridiculously early in the morning, just remember that this is completely normal. I love writing snarky banter between characters, cliches are my best friends, and I will never write a first-person story unless the main character is a sarcastic little shit. I'm a borderline atheist, keep up with the politics in my country and others, know a lot of useless facts (did you guys know that whoever the current pope is doubles as both the king of Vatican City and the head honcho of the Roman Catholic Church?), and make a habit of watching the news every night. I swear too much, listen to too much music, and haven't completed junior high yet. I'm also a female.
I love strawberry ice cream, the colour green, and astronomy. Historical stories are my favourite kind of story to write, but fantasy comes in a close second. I'm an animal lover, have two cats of my own, and am planning on getting a German shepherd - who is already named, of course. I love learning and reading about different cultures - I could sit all day reading about them and not be bored at all. I take great pleasure in researching the complexities of the former British Empire and the countries formerly and still currently associated with it, attempting to understand the EU (seriously, how many fucking exceptions to the rules are there in this organization! It's ridiculous!), and digging into European/Canadian history in general. I don't think Pluto is a planet anymore, despite that I had always been taught that it was, have no idea how many continents there are (is it four, or five, or six, or seven? Twelve? Are we counting each of the tectonic plates as different continents, if we're going by that definition? Are the Americas all considered one continent? And if that's the case, and we're going technical here, shouldn't Europe, Asia, and Africa all be the same continent, since we're disregarding the Panama Canal? What about Zealandia?), and find the space between Canada and The United States (or, the no-touching zone, as I prefer to call it) to be unintentionally hilarious. Different things fascinate me, you guys have no idea.
Obviously, I love writing. I wouldn't be on this site if I didn't. I think that one was a given. Music is my main form of inspiration, and I have a very wide variety of tastes - basically, if I like the song, I always have it saved somewhere. I love fantasy and romance (secretly, my inner romantic squeals in delight when I read a good romance). I love the bonds I can create between characters. I love describing beautiful, majestic landscapes. I love weaving unlikely relationships (hehe, crack pairings), and writing about friends and family that fight. Protecting the ones you love, at any cost, heroes that have to learn how to control themselves, rebellion... I love it all.
A problem of mine, however, is that even though I know I can write, I always get stuck in my head. I'm sure anyone who reads this and has attempted writing can relate. It's much, much easier to form sentences and plots in your head than on paper or a computer. My fingers are fast, but they often type out nonsense. My mind is foggy and I am often tired when I write, but I always try to believe that I want to do justice to myself and the ideas that form in my head, the ones that had been developing since the first day I ever sat in front of a computer and wrote. Everyone's ideas deserve to be written.
There's no other place I could belong.
I just want to make my mark here.
From Canada, with love,
Im starting anew! Well, for the most part.
On the subject of Shipping...
I don't just have ships, guys...
I have an armada.
Try to sink it. I dare you.
Because apparently I need one of these...
(1) Why do you write Canada so much?
(2) Why do you write crack/uncommon pairings so much?
(3) Why do your interpretations on the characters keep changing from story to story?
(4) Why do you write PruCan so much?
(5) Who is your favourite character?
(6) Do you take requests?
(7) Will you ever write a USUK story?
(8) But why not?
I tend to write AUs more than I write canon. Keep that in mind.
Also, for any Hetalia stories, the way to tell whether I've written an AU or in canon-verse is look to see whether I put human names or country names in the summary. I have a thing against using human names in anything but dialogue when I write Hetalia canon, so I never mix country and human names in the narration. It's just my thing.
Norway is my spirit animal.
