Since not everyone is familiar with the term, I'll go ahead and lay it out for you. I read, analyze, and write about books. I give my opinion on characters, setting, genre, style, and sometimes even covers. I say what works, what doesn't, and what I'd like to see.
In short, I criticize.
Back - back foul demon! Burn the witch! Don't come anywhere near me!
Yeah, I know you're all thinking it. What gives me the right to rifle through someone's hard work and put its flaws on display? Who do I think I am, slandering authors with false interpretations and quotes made out of context?
I'm a writer.
Yeah, of nothing but muck and lies.
No, no, I mean I write my own fiction. Or at least I did.
What, couldn't take some of your own medicine?
Yes and no.
Like most writers, I crave exposure. I want my work out there, read by the masses and enjoyed. DeviantArt, my blog, they're both small outlets where my writing can be seen.
But, as most writers

Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady.
This wasn’t happening. It couldn’t be, surely there had been some mistake. Somewhere a stack of papers was misfiled, or some clipboard was changed with another. There was something off about it all as Arthur watched your coffin sink into the ground. You couldn’t be in there, could you?
You couldn’t just be gone. There was no way you’d leave Arthur all alone, right?
You-You promised him. A promise is a promise no matter what.
Why would you break such a promise and end your life?
All Arthur could feel was the cold. There were goosebumps on his skin as he curled up on the couch you two had spent so many a night upon. But he did nothing to stop them. Shivers wracked his body, but he knew he couldn’t stop them with warmth or friction. This was the cold brought on by severe loss. A cold no man of good heart should ever have to feel, despite how ma

"You heard me, Antonio. I hate you!" The words slipped from my mouth once again and tears formed in my eyes, making my sight blurry. "Can you just leave already,damn it?!

Iiiiiit's Doitsu!!!! Yup, it's our favorite German BDSM fan's turn, Germany (or Doitsu, if you want). Let's start with his psychological features. First, his tough and overserious attitude of which we can say, is non-existent in 2p!Germany's personality.Instead, 2p!Germany would be kind of like 1p!Italy (okay, not that much, but still), laid back, kind of a joker and kind of a scaredy-cat (dafaq..)..... I would seriously pay to see something like that. But enough about my broken dreams, let's get back to our beloved German.
Alright. I think that if 1p!Germany would ever see his 2p! counterpart, he would be shocked by his utter rules-free attitude and untidiness. I personally picture him sleeping in his room in a hammock he made from a blanket with all kinds of cans and dirty clothes scattered around the room; not to mention he would have his favorite PlayBoy issue lied on his face. He'd really be a fan of sleeping, just like his brother, 2p!
