Summary: College AU. Alfred Kirkland always suspected that taking an electives fine arts course for a whole semester would be tantamount to torture. He was right. Well… sorta. USPH.
Alfred stared with dismay at the paint-smeared piece of paper in front of him, and resisted the increasingly tantalizing urge to pound the easel, the painting, his brush, and the palette into a crater on the floor and run, not walk, out of this stupid class permanently. Why oh why had he stooped to making that stupid bet with Kyle? Why? Matthew had warned him, but the chance to get one-up on his brash Australian cousin/roommate was just too much to resist. So of course, he’d ended up losing, and luckily for him the penalty for the loser was that the winner chose an electives course for them in the next semester of college, and they had to go to every class and pass. Kyle (the sadistic bastard) had cho

Summary: May of 1942. General MacArthur has been ordered to pull out of the Philippines, and America has to leave with him. Philippines is understandably Not Happy about this.
She stood before him in the corridor in a state of mild shock, numb with what he had just told her. He was leaving? He was leaving?
"C'mon, Philippines, don't look like that," the United States of America said, shifting his backpack awkwardly over his shoulder at her stricken look. "I'm not exactly happy about this either, you know. But orders are orders."
"So you're just going to leave me?" Philippines protested, finally finding her voice. Her accent became more and more prominent with each word she spoke, charged with fear and anger. "You're going to let Japan have me? You've heard the stories about what happens to the countries he conquers, America! I don't want my people to be next! And they will be if you abandon us!" H
The Case for USPHBefore I begin this dialogue proper, I would just like to say that I detest shipping wars. Really, I do. Can we not be mature fans here, people? Ship and let ship is my motto. BruPhil, MexPhil, KoreaPhil, Pirihon, whatever your preferential ship for the Philippines, have at it, by all means. Your head-canon, your rules, and I fully respect that. I have my own opinions on the matter, of course, but I normally keep them to myself unless asked or if it's in a like-minded forum. And this is one of those times when I was personally asked - by :icondinosaurusgede: herself no less - so I've decided to add my own two cents to the pot, for whatever it's worth.The Case for USPH in Personal Journal More Like This
I would also like to say that while I have tried to be as thorough in my research as I can, the following is merely my own opinion, and is in no way, shape, or form the end all be all on this matter, nor do I consider it to be. All I ask is that you respect my opinion, just as I respect yours. If you choose to comment and cann
X-I's 100 Hetalia Head-Canons1. All nations can inherently understand each other when they're talking, regardless of what languages are being spoken at the time. Despite this, most, if not all nations are at least bilingual, because while they might be able to understand one another, they can't understand humans unless they can actually speak their languages.X-I's 100 Hetalia Head-Canons in General Fiction More Like This
2. Colonies, states, territories, and provinces are literally part of the nation that owns them. They're inexorably linked to it by invisible ties, and it takes great strength of will to forcibly break free of that bond once it is in place. If something happens to a colony/state/territory/province/etc., the nation will feel it, and if the nation is in danger or in trouble, the protectorates of that nation will instinctively band together to defend it.
3. There are two types of civil wars, and also how the nations are affected by them. The first type is when there is a clash of ideals in the government and a certain percentage of the people, and those peopl
