I believe it’s time to announce the next theme week. Since it’s February, I’ve decided that the theme for this month’s theme week will be rare pairings and will take place from February 16-February 22. Submit any fics featuring a pairing that doesn’t get very much attention, preferably one that hasn’t yet been featured on this blog, though any rare pairing is fine.
Also guys, don’t forget to submit any fic as well. I haven’t gotten very many submissions lately, and I really don’t want this blog to die.

breakingfromhumanity asked: Well I know most of pairings in hetalia are yaoi (Which make sense since all the characters are mostly men XD) I have a question though, I don't know which pairings you ship, is the reasons you ship a certain pairing is because it would be interesting history wise, or you just think the pairing is cute in general? (I personally don't like yaoi but I'm curious XD)
Wow, interesting question!!
I’d say both??? The most obvious one history wise would be FrUk, which has A LOT of history supporting it — easy, considering they are neighbours.
But I also ship Den/Belgium, and that is way more complicated to find historical basis (I am not saying that it doesn’t exist, but that it is harder to find because Belgium as a country is fairly recent, and before it belonged to other countries so yeah). Here, I ship it because I think that their personnalities would fit and it would be really cute.
And then there’s my Belgium/Ukraine OTP and yeah good luck finding anything there (I think I read something once that they traded a looong time ago but other than that). Seychelles/Belgium/Monaco could perhaps be easier because FRANCOPHONIE UNITE.
SO I mostly ship things on whether or not I believe they would be cute together (that’s why, even though I don’t ship most of the thing people asked me about the other day, I am saying no to only a few of them. Sure it never crossed my mind that X/Y ship existed, but the potential for fluff is there) (and even those I say no to are really cute pairing and I say no because of other things so yeah).
(A LOT OF PARENTHESIS IN THIS POST).
BUT it doesn’t/didn’t stop me for searching desperatly for historical links, because it always feel good to know that there’s at least some events supporting your ship, you know? It’s kind of like when you watch a show and every glance (that is otherwise meaningless) suddenly becomes material for your ship, except with history books so you look like an history nerd.
(I know more about the Belgian royalty than my Belgian friend, and I’m French Chinese, I am not shitting you.)
fangirl-4-ever-xx asked: What do you think of my OTP, RusGer? (Manly yaoi pairing, I know :p)
Hehe manly pairing indeed! Hmm good question, it might be interesting history wise, I never really thought about it :)
siestas-no-fiestas asked: hello this is isn't a question or anything of the sort i just wanted to say your blog makes me happy and you're an awesome person for running it! (^ ^)~ plus your view on all ships should get equal attention is wonderful!
Hello, thank you so much, it means a lot!!
Haha, my views are the product of being in many fandoms with a LOT of dramas surrounding ships and yeah it gets tiring after a while! It’s silly when you can spent more time being productive for your ship, what’s the point of wasting your time hating on something else?
