Hey there! It’s time for the contest you OC creators have all been waiting for! It’s the OC Contest. In this contest, you have a chance of getting your character a role in ‘Elementary’! So if you want to know what ‘Elementary’ is all about, here is the information:
THE BASE PLOT
Lovino Vargas is a new student that is in his Senior Year at Hetalia High School, having spent previous years at different schools due to his family moving around lots. While other students are looking forward to bright futures and amazing new opportunities, Lovino is rather fed up with the world around him. He feels like he's seen it all and nothing is worth getting excited over anymore. The only person he really knows at this school is his annoying classmate Gilbert Beilschmidt, his annoying little brothers Feliciano and Serafino Vargas, and the rather mysterious Kiku Honda. As he spends more

MEL'S GIANT FACKING FAVE CHARACTER LISTIt suddenly occurred to me that as well as doing a favourite ship list, it would make sense to do one for my favourite characters! So let me tell you the gig!MEL'S GIANT FACKING FAVE CHARACTER LIST2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For fandoms with large casts, I will list my top ten characters. And for fandoms with smaller casts, I will list my top five characters. I will do my best to put them in order.
No judging me on which characters are my favourite, or for not putting a certain character on my list. And yeah, that's basically it, ahaha.
Let's do this!

(why do i feel like people are going to be shocked at me for not putting South Korea-- if you must know, he'd be 11th if this were a top 15. ahuehuehuehue - a lot of characters were close to the ten though! )
HEY YOU. YOU WITH THE HETALIA OCLately I've noticed another upsurge again in OCs that are whitewashed. They're OCs that are representing nations where the majority ain't white, but for some reason the OC is pale anyway.HEY YOU. YOU WITH THE HETALIA OC2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me just smack all guilty parties with this journal of mine:
And you better read through that journal if you don't understand what I'm talking about, you silly spud.
Now let me just emphasize a thing.
now, my point is: I don't care what form of media you are using. I don't care how talented you are as an artist. That doesn't mean you should deliberately whitewash characters that shouldn't be whitewashed just because you are too lazy to toggle your colour picker on your art program or you are too lazy to adjust the colours of your traditional media. Of course it takes practise with traditional media to get the right colours, but that doesn't mean you should make lazy cop outs like that.
After all, if you're going to make lazy excuses when it comes to your o
.::Don't change history just so you can ship.::So I noticed that many people do this, and its' rather sickening. Either they disregard the proper course of historical events, immensely misinterpret it, or 'alter it' to fit their ships. Three main 'ships' that this occurs with are ones I happen to dislike with gusto..::Don't change history just so you can ship2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For me, I majorly dislike JapanxPhilippines, JapanxCambodia, and FrancexCambodia.
Lets' get started on why, shall we?
Japanese Imperialism in the Philippines and Cambodia was nothing short of horrific. The Japanese killed enormous amounts, burned villages, raped women, the whole nine yards. Though this was primarily occuring in the Philippines and they are in reasonable terms current day, it doesn't change the fact that this pairing could be considered remotely offensive. As for French colonization in Cambodia, many Khmer ways were oppressed and almost stamped out.
However, this does not go to say that Imperialism, Colonization, and 'Invasion' are synonymous with rape.

just gonna rant a pet peeve of mineWhy is it that there's so many artworks that use '2P' Japan when it comes to fanart regarding World War Two? It really bugs me, because it's like people can't accept that Japan's 1P did those terrible things he did during the war. But in 'Axis Powers Hetalia', the main storyline is based around World War Two and we do see regular Japan and he is a part of the Axis Powers. That is the Japan Himaruya intended for the series, not 2P Japan, the original. 2P isn't even a canon thing, it's an AU and I don't get why people have to use the 2P whenever the country does something they're morally against.just gonna rant a pet peeve of mine1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Or what, whenever a country plans to do something bad, they have to bring in some kind of 'evil twin' to do it? What the actual fuck? Just because you don't agree with what a country has done, that doesn't mean the country has to be a 2P to have done it.
Yes, we all have gotten upset over bad things people in the country have done, but you've got to accept that there's bound to be a reason behin
you know whatpeople who can't take constructive criticism over fandom related stuff are not going to have a fun time with constructive criticism in the real world, especially when you get to adulthood.you know what2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it's better to try and become more open-minded in your youth, because otherwise you risk turning into a stubborn person who refuses other's opinions/perspectives/desire to help with constructive critique/etc.
So instead of bitching out at someone who criticises you, even when they may not have sounded as nice as they could have been, try and think more about their point of view. You don't even have to agree, but don't just run away from it or whatever. With clear bashing comments, just hide them. You have no obligation to answer to them. But when someone is actually trying to give you a thoughtful opinion on something of yours, even when you don't agree, at least try to meet halfway with them. Perhaps you two would both end up elaborating more on your respective points of view and just like t

Just a little opinion about anti-stampsI'm sorry but I don't see much point to them. Yes, I understand hating on something but wow, do you want a medal for telling the whole world about it? And people who do like the thing, yes it will always irk them even if they do understand that someone has a different opinion.Just a little opinion about anti-stamps2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's just... I don't see the point in making some big announcement based around negativity. When I don't like something, I prefer to discuss the hate in a less public setting. And honestly, whenever I see someone make a hate stamp, even when I agree with what's being hated on, I can't help but feel that person just wasted their time.
Why not put more effort into the things you love? Make stamps about what you love and have positive discussions with people who agree. Because seriously, what the fuck are you accomplishing by making a hate stamp other than congratulations you're kind of a whiny little shit???
Yes I acknowledge that people will dislike and hate things. For example, I hate the shipping PruCan. There w

Once upon a time, Juan met Lovino in the meadow.
"I don't know how to tell you this," Juan began nervously, "but I've felt it from the moment I first laid eyes on you…"
"What the fuck?" Lovino asked, confused about the current predicaments of this fanfiction.
"…I heard a lot of good things about you from Antonio, you know? So I had a feeling you were the right guy…" Juan continued, toeing at the grass awkwardly. Oh man, he really had no idea how he was going to ask this. How would Lovino react?
"Wait," Lovino held up a hand to indicate Juan to stop talking. "Antonio's been talking to you about me?"
"Mm," Juan nodded. "He said lots of things… like how you're really adorable, how you have a foul mouth, how your curl sets off some sort of moan reaction, how you turn into a tomato when you're embarrassed…"
Lovino turned tomato red as if on cue. "T

A SCHOOL UNIFORM DESIGN FOR A HETALIA DOUJINSHI THING
But I want it to look pretty cool and innovative I guess. Assume it's not too fancy, that the characters wearing it will be moving around a lot and all sorts. I need a boy uniform design and a girl uniform design. These are my more specific requirements for the uniforms:
there is a white shirt included. Short sleeved or long sleeved, I have no particular preference. If there's a blazer/jumper/vest worn over the top in your design, I have no preferences with that either.the pants (for boys)/skirt (for girls) must be predominantly black.Use any other colours as you like, just know that each class will have a different colour scheme. So if you send in a design with black, white and red, assume that there will be versions with black, white and blue/green/purple/etc.the main characters I have in mind are my Philippines OC (refer to :iconlupang-hinirang: for references) and South Italy, so feel free to
ABOUT THE NEW PROJECT (HETADOUJIN) [update!]Hey you! Were you wondering about some of my latest journals? You know, about the Uniform Contest and the Shipping Survey?ABOUT THE NEW PROJECT (HETADOUJIN) [update!]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, they're both in relation to my latest project! You see, I've decided to put my other projects on hiatus and place my focus on this new AU! And this AU is going to be more inclusive than any of my other AUs! How so?
The Uniform Contest: you guys have a chance to influence the style of clothing most seen throughout the doujinshi! This is important to those who want their OC involved with the project, because this'll most likely be the outfit their OC will be wearing and will be drawing their OC in for the October contest! This Uniform Contest ends on September 30th and I urge you to get involved! I really want to get an awesome design to use for both the guys and girls. ;u;You get to have your say! -
CAN I JUST CLEAR A THING UP FOR THOSE WITH PH OCSSpanish surname naming customs go like thisCAN I JUST CLEAR A THING UP FOR THOSE WITH PH OCS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
first name - paternal surname - maternal surname
the paternal surname is the surname that usually gets adopted
so when you guys are doing the whole Maria Clara Carriedo de la Cruz stuff or whatever, you've been taking the wrong surname from Spain's character all along!
His name is Antonio Fernandez Carriedo
Antonio = first name
Fernandez = paternal surname
Carriedo = maternal surname
so the surname that would be more accurate to borrow would be Fernandez, not Carriedo!
BUT BUT BUT BUT BUT
Why borrow Spain's surnames in the first place? You don't see America being called Alfred Kirkland. You don't see Lovino Fernandez. If your character is an independent nation, I don't see any reason for them to keep their coloniser's surname as though they're still their colony.
I get it if you headcanoned the OC as having the surname during colonisation. But once they are independent, it would make sense for them to break away fr
Just a thing I want to let out of my systemOkay so uh, just a mini-rant. Sometimes I think it's annoying when people go on about 'headcanon' OCs.Just a thing I want to let out of my system1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Don't get me wrong, I'm okay with people headcanoning their own OC as their main OC to use for that country. I mean, we made our OCs the way they are for a reason, because they're made from a whole bunch of headcanons. So that's all good, I can headcanon my Philippines as the Philippines OC to use for works and stuff, cuz it's my works and my OC.
That doesn't mean I'm not okay with other Philippines OCs. There are a few others I like, of course they're not made from my headcanons, but I'm still okay with it all.
Also I am okay with people saying to someone "Your OC is my headcanon OC for that country", because it's a compliment directed at the creator. Their works, their OCs, coolio if you want to use a someone's OC for w/e. But wow you don't need to announce to the whole word, especially in the faces of other people who have OCs for that country as well.
Now here is what I have a pro
I saw the stupidest thing todayOkay, so the background to this story is that White Ribbon is a campaign/charity in New Zealand that helps women and children escape domestic abuse/abusive relationships/stuff along those lines. This is a real issue that I think happens in every single country, but the poor people who find themselves in that situation really do need help. The reality is that domestic abuse is more committed by men than women, but every person with common sense knows that not all men abuse and that women aren't always the victim. Even so, we still need charities like this to exist and run successfully because the issue is real and serious and is more common than most people like to admit.I saw the stupidest thing today1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So keep that paragraph in mind as I begin this story.
Today I was in town to have lunch with mum and to then catch a bus to get to my job briefing which is further out of the Wellington City Centre - catching buses on time was crucial because missing a bus could make me really late and that would be bad on the first da

I think you can tell from the title i am quite doubtful about it
Anyways, someone showed me this picture
As you can see, it is Amano Akira's style, with some features related to KHR.
For a brief moment i was all "YAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!"
but after reading the comments, i kinda got worried .
Many people actually think that this is a new series for the KHR manga.
I did have the same reaction, my brothers did have the same reaction.
Suddenly, the only thing i am happy about is that i am able to see Amano-sensei's style again after the longest time
and after thinking for a while, i thought otherwise.
I really dont want to be a party pooper, but why would a complete manga start a new series?
Have you seen ANY manga that does this? it finish one series, and starts again with another.
oh boy, Opinions on Hetalia Characterstaken from ilaria-ilaydaoh boy, Opinions on Hetalia Characters1 year ago in Personal More Like This
America: I really do enjoy him since it does seem like how I think most Americans are like and when Hima had stated that he was based on a Canadian even made my day as well so I raugh so much but meeeh, he gets boring after a while.
Austria: hmm, I'm pretty cool with him plus he does seem to have quite some amusing moments just that I wish Hima did focus on him more or I get to know more about him.
Belarus: May I say I want to marry her!?!? I really don't get why people hate Belarus so much, she can be calm as hell and is really an awesome character plus if you read the comics you see that Belarus can have a decent conversation with Russia without stalking him, hell he was asking about a chair okay.
Belgium: my god, is she cute! I really love this girl since she seems super sweet and totally nice plus I can totally see her as being a sassy girl god.
Bulgaria: okay, I seriously enjoy him in the halloween special! he was so amusing

A PSA I REPEAT A PSAIf someone posts an Artwork of an OC, DON'T and I repeat DON'T comment or say in the description that you prefer a different OC to the one that's in the picture. It's rude to the original owner of the OC WHO WILL SEE THAT COMMENT AND THEY WILL FEEL UPSET THAT THEIR OC IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.A PSA I REPEAT A PSA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hell, don't draw multiple OCs together and then pick your favourites in the description. Still rude to the ones who aren't picked.
Don't comment on an image with multiple OCs saying you like some but not others. RUDE RUDE RUDE.
I get it, we're all biased little shits, but that doesn't give us the right to make another person feel like somebody else's OC is always gonna be better than their own - EVEN IF WE FEEL THAT SOMEBODY ELSE'S OC IS BETTER, THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO MAKE AN ASS OF YOURSELF JUST TO POINT IT OUT.
I mean, yeah, we all have headcanon OCs of certain countries, but I tell that to the original owner of the OC, rather than announce to all OC owners of X country that a certain one is t
