Description

lol, please don't take this seriously

okay, earlier I noticed that it seems that a lot of russians use brackets as emoticons. Like ))) instead of : )))
Actually they are the ONLY ones I see writing them like this.
At first I didn't know what it meant either but an artist explained it in his comments.
Well, now we have Hetalia...
:icondess-hime: asked me if there is really no one else who uses them and as far as I know - not really D:

Actually when I rped Ivan on formspring I let him use those brackets as emoticons because I'm a sucker for little details like that orz
Please don't feel creeped out hahaha :'D
I just think... he would use them?
And I think of him trying to keep his messages grammatically correct and business-like and that he would refuse using net speak. I could see him being more of a letter-person anyways because it's more personal (It may or may not has to do with a certain fanfic.)
Since Alfred has the body and mind of a teenager I think he would write net speak. No big words, he just wants to exchange information as quickly as possible.
English is not my first language so if some parts are still wrong I apologize.

Yes.
Yes, I downloaded the russian version of the MSN-messenger just so I could do THIS.
No, I actually have a life *sob*
I know, it is hard to believe, but it is true...
I... I don't know. I think I will keep my MSN like that.
/weirdo

Many thanks to my friend who played Alfred in this (':
It was fun.

Yeah, and since it was kinda lame to just post a screenshot I added facepalming!Ivan below.
He's probably thinking "What did I ever do to deserve this? What??? *sob*" It was just a quick doodle with some pseudo himaruya-esque coloring D: Please ignore if it hurts your eyes.

Hm, I just noticed though... the eyeless smiley kind of fits Ivan if you think of his trademark smile that rarely reaches his eyes.
And then we have my weird fetish for eyeball torture.

:\

I get the feeling I think too much about this.
Way, way too much.
I will stop now.
Please don't kill me.
I just thought I should make something cracky for a change :'D *fails*

EDIT: IF YOU TRY OUT THE LINK IN ALFRED'S AWAY MESSAGE IT'S YOUR OWN FAULT. JUST SAYING!

Also, “))0))0))” (with zeroes) sometimes means sarcasm, humour of darkest kind or a joke which obviously isn’t funny (and intentionally so).
