Hetalia- Meeting in Teheran by ItaLuv Hetalia- Meeting in Teheran by ItaLuv
HOW TO READ: The comics themselves are numbered at the bottom: start at #1. Go from top-to-bottom, and read the word bubbles from left-to-right.
Like I said, it was stupidly written...

When I read in my history textbook that my three favorite Hetalian countries: Russia, America, and England once met in Teheran (the capital of Iran/Persia), I was like, "COMIC. NAOW."

I believe the purpose of this meeting was to discuss plan "OVERLORD"? Nice name. Very subtle. **eyeroll**

I've been dying to do something with that other meme spawn--er, I mean the character I made up in that one meme: [link] So this was perfect. 8D

Explanations for Non-Persians xD;;-

Comic 1- People tend to get the Iranian flag [link] confused with the Mexican flag [link] . Really, they're not that similar except for the colors...

Comic 2- In Iran there is a practice called "tarof", where a giver/receiver of something go back and forth insisting/refusing the giving of the gift. You're expected to refuse several times. It's kind of a tedious tradition, to be honest...

Comic 3- Iranians can come off as stiff to people that don't know them. Around friends and family, they're very teasing and joking (and sometimes mean about other people...). xD

Also, before I forget, =Maverick-Hunter-Kat came up with America's line in the last panel. XD

Uh, btw, He's actually calling Russia fat and America stupid. America doesn't get it, because...well...he's stupid. XD;;

Ha ha, my god 'how rude, they didn't even refuse once!' How typical xD
DogLover1358 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013
It's not just the Persians that think that is rude
My relatives usually refuses an offer when someone offers something unless the person goes, "No, no please, take it," something like that and I'm Chinese so yeah, not just Persians

The Iranian flag doesnt look that much like the Mexican flag...
Waveripple Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012
Okay, so if I ever visit Iran refuse gifts, got it. :) And Hetalia as tainted history for me, if you get my drift. Every history book chapter reminds me of them! Cute comic, too!

for the comic 2 -_- happens all the time in Egypt, you have to say a million no before you say yes >.< does that apply for the rest of the Arabs??
KwikkiCat Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012
XDDD I love this!! "How rude, they didn't even refuse once." x3 Lol. I love tarouf as much as the next guy... but really, it can be annoying at times. Also, why's he in Shah get-up?

Persian/Iranian stereotypes XD
MissAleatory Featured By Owner May 15, 2012
In Turkey, it's the same. You have to refuse until the third time. It always confused me, so I chose to let my parents speak for me.

Persia better hide from Russia
Kitsune693 Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2012
Persia is sooooooo dead.... I mean, just look at Ivan's face, and the Kolkolkol...
Britan will probably curse him with big eyebrows like he did with Hong Kong.
Russia will probably beat him to death with his pipe...

Russia, rip off Persia's legs and rip off his face with his own blood! America can pelt him with burgers and machine guns, and England can curse him... Heh heh heh, nobody insults America....

Russia does not appreciate being called fat! He's big-boned!

They may not look like much, but they'll give you a run for your money. Especially Russia. You should've just kept your mouth shut, Persia! :giggle:
