"Where are Chinese pirates from?"

AHAHAHA, if you don't understand, let me explain it to you: In China, there are MANY MANY MANY MANY DIALECTS; some major ones are Cantonese, Shanghainese, Beijing Accent, Mandarin("standard" chinese) and many more~
In Beijing, the typical accent is "er" which is "aru" when romanized in Japanese Romaji. "Er" is pronounced "ar" and the hanzi(Chinese character) for it is: 儿. It is often added to the last letter/vowel of the last word in a sentence.
(note: i wont be adding the tones on the romanized words because i don't have my chinese keyboard QAQ instead i'll have the characters~)
So "Bu Ke Qi" (不客氣) means "you're welcome" in Chinese-Mandarin. With the Beijing accent however, the saying becomes "Bu Ke Qier" (although i ofte

Hetalia = stereotypes. also centered around WWII.
Hetalia = Made by, and by the perspective of, a JAPANESE man.
So for those who don't understand why China even says "aru" because in truth and in a way, the Chinese people DO use this quirk(at this certain era) .
Now let me explain in a way ya'll understand.

ooc://I salute to all my fellow OC Ask/RP AccountsRESPECT GUYS. If you're an ask/rp account with your own OC let me just say, You. You have guts. You are brave. And not just OCs, even redesigns of characters with ask/RP accounts. With the growing number of OC accounts I'd just like to say some things.ooc://I salute to all my fellow OC Ask/RP Accounts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, if you're an OC account which has information down the line or have journals all about your area and such, I immediately applaud you. If you spent more than a few months on your OC, possibly redesigning looks and personality, and spent so much time on information for your character, I salute you. I see so many OCs out there. So many who have wonderful admins who've spent a TON of time researching and just spending time with their character. These people need more watchers. More questions. More love.
If you spent TIME and EFFORT on your OC and it wasn't JUST for the sole use of SHIPPING, then I respect you. So much.
I would just like to say, making OCs is NOT an easy job. This OC, I've had for a little over a year now. She ha
