Author has written 4 stories for Hetalia - Axis Powers.
Hi! Welcome to my profile, and thank you for reading it! I'm relatively new to FF.net, so any tips, advice, or critiques are appreciated. At the moment, I'm working on my first story, The Hero's Fomula. It's a Hetalia: Axis Powers fanfiction.
Hand in Hand, my other ongoing story, is going to be updated fairly sporadically, but I will try to keep writing for it since people gave me such great feedback. I hate starting more than one story at once, though, so I will be focusing more on The Hero's Formula than on Hand in Hand, at least for the time being.
I suppose this is the part of the program where I tell you a bit about myself. I'm not sure that it matters, but I suppose that it's the point of having a profile, so, here goes.
You can call me Arlecchina, or if that's to long/complicated/tedious to type, then Arlee is fine. I'm a high school student who's also taking college classes, if that makes sense. I love school and all things involving writing. Fanfiction is right up my alley, since I'm virtually incapable of watching a movie, reading a book, or watching a musical, without either coming up with a hundred "what if" scenarios, or writing a sequel in my head.
I'm a born again Christian who loves the Lord, and will try my best to represent. That means no hardcore swearing (Gosh and heck is about as far as I get) no inappropriate comments or situations (that's a bit of a given) and no, absolutely no slash. I don't write it, and don't particularly like to read it. I actually prefer stories that focus more on family and friends than romance anyway.
I would rather read William Shakespeare than Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, or Twilight. That's just how I am. I sometimes even send text messages in Old English. How art thou this fine day just sounds classier than Yo. how r u?
That brings up another subject. I pride myself on being a lady (yes, I am female, if the incredibly femenine username didn't give it away already) and so am often considered either naive or old fashioned. Not so. I am just as comfortable in Bermuda shorts as I am in a dress. I can be a tomboy at times, and I treat a game of hide and seek like it's World War Three.
That's probably why I like Hetalia. Everything's life or death, and your next move could win the war or seal your country's fate. I don't enjoy Hetalia for the humor, (in fact I could do without a lot of it) or for the fact that the countries of the world are all personified as handsome guys. (Come on, I'm not that shallow.) I like Hetalia because it's a show about history, and a show about national stereotypes, both of which I find to be highly amusing. I love history, especially the World Wars. Also, I think it's hard not to laugh when you see the personification of your country do something, and think "Oh, it's so true!" or "Is that really how they see us?" Either way, it's funny. Mostly because I live in the United States of America.
Now, despite the fact that I live in America, I do not eat hamburgers constantly. However, I do know plenty of people that practically live on junk food, and can't help but think "I wish I lived in England! At least they have scones!" Oh, yes, I went there. Actually, I like British food. Fish and chips, and the occasional scone actually taste quite good. That could just be my English roots talking, though. I'm a quarter British, a quarter German, and half Czech, and if you've met me, it's not too hard to picture.
My obsessive organizational skills and affinity for neatness is my German side. I've never been tested, but I'm pretty sure I have mild OCD tendencies. I even straighten the magazine stacks at the doctor's office. Potatoes are the most delicious food known to man, and surrendering is for wimps.
My English side, as I've said, likes Arthur's food. I will indulge in McDonalds (occasionally) but a home cooked meal is always best. Also, I'm a absolutely invincible British lady, thank you very much. No pain, no gain!
There isn't an official Czech Republic character, is there? Well, Czech culture and cuisine are still amazing, and I'm super proud of my heritage there.
Since I'm an American citizen, I'm technically part American as well, but sometimes I almost wish I wasn't. Of course, there are other days when I feel like standing up and shouting "GO USA!" I definitely wouldn't say that I don't have anything in common with him. Problem-solver is my middle name, and once I get past my somewhat shy personality, I have no problem taking charge and being "The Hero". Ice cream is great, despite what anyone tells you, and I do enjoy the occasional hamburger.
Anyway, in addition to being a history/geograpy freak, I also love the arts. All of them. Writing, drawing, singing, piano, guitar, acting, dancing, cooking, you name it, I enjoy it.
I also love radio dramas. Yes, radio dramas. I listen with an actual radio, not a computer or a smartphone. My favourite is Adventures in Odyssey. It's great, go check it out! Also, Father Gilbert Mysteries. They are epic. Both of these awesome series' will likely get a story or two, once I come up with some ideas.
As for books, I will read almost anything. I'm not a fan of modern teen novels, though. Lemony Snicket, Brandon Mull and Ted Dekker are some exceptions to that rule.
Umm... Running out of things to say here. Let's see... PASTAAAA!
