I love artist xiaoyugaara. Her pieces are so aesthetically pleasing and her commentary is pretty fun to read! She needs more love.
There’s an old post here that’s like "I don’t understand why people think rus/ame isn’t a good ship" then proceeds to only list a few good things from their historical past and doesn’t at all acknowledge the current horrible state of their relationship, which left me sitting like ”??????” especially seeing that it got a bunch of likes.
It just seems like such an illogical justification to me like yeah, never mind if a couple is always at each others throats now, they were great in the past therefore they’re a good couple.
I’m just saying, if you’re going to defend and interpret a ship from a historical viewpoint, be objective rather than cherry-picking what’s convenient for your argument.
No, they are not nor have they been “becoming closer in real life” resulting in Russia “deeply regretting how much he Mind-Fucked America” during the Cold War. Like ?????? I seriously wanna know where the shippers even come up with this stuff.
I’m kinda sad because there’s a bunch of canonxOC pairing nowadays, which makes every canon female character and their potential pairing wasn’t getting much love. I think those canon female nation is more interesting than OC
I like Vietnam, but I can’t stand her fans sometimes. They’re always complain and whine about “where’s Viet-chaaannnnnn??” whenever there’s Asian pic without Vietnam on it. Not to mention, most of them are bashing Taiwan because they feel she’s always the center in every Asian pic and not their idol. I feel like I want to slap them and say : “calm down, Thailand, India, Mongolia, Tibet isn’t there either, not just your Vietnam, stupid”
Also, I don’t know if anyone realize this, but her fans always make Vietnam as tsundere-shipping bitch with every male character, they’re usually hating every female character except Vietnam, they don’t care no one else but Vietnam. Personally I don’t like tsundere Vietnam, she’s a strong women, independent, cool, and also a bit shy, not some tsundere-kawai-mary sue type. Many hetalians starting to hate Vietnam because of her fans, which is makes me sad
Recently there has been surge in awareness when it comes to using Pixiv art. This appears to be good, but those tupes of people forgot a serious problem. What’s this problem?
People stealing Hetalia fanart on Pixiv and using it for bases.
I have seen several base artists on deviantART trace over Hetalia artwork and use it as bases. Then fanartists who have awful OCs often trace over these bases and use them as art between a Hetalia character and their OC. This also applies to fanartists who make bases out of Hetalia screenshots.
This sort of thing can (and possibly will) upset the artist who made the original image, as they feel annoyed that someone stole something that they, the original artist, put hours of work in.
What I learned from the recent “rus///ame fic to putin” scandal:
Not only is sending anon hate bullying, but expressing any form of opposition towards a teenager’s actions within the space of your blog is also “bullying”, even if you left them unidentified….
Or at least according to tumblr user anothercolor-2ptalia.
Yeah, I agree that hate definitely shouldn’t have been sent over it and anyone who did send hate is a piece of trash, but I don’t agree with how this user aggressively went around yelling at literally everybody who dared to express anything along the lines of “Wow, no. Stop.” calling them “bullies” for it.
Even posts that were as simple as “why would you do that” “wtf don’t do that” or just reaction images this user would comment like “JACKASS THEY’RE 15!!1!1 YOU’RE BULLYING THEM!!111!1 YOU’RE STILL BITCHING STFU” when in reality, most people who posted about it moved on from the situation pretty quickly and the only reason it was still being spoken about is because this user kept messaging. I’ve seen at least 2 users they replied to call them out on that point.
I feel sorry that the kid was sent hate and I’m sorry for anyone who actually got heat over daring to think “No. That’s not a good idea.”
Expressing disagreement towards a 15 year old’s actions within the space of your blog while concealing their identity isn’t fucking “bullying”. The only people who are bullies are the ones who went out of their way to send hate.
(sorta-related to the Kodalaine thing) it really bothers me when people say ships/smut involving Liechtenstein is pedophilia, because they’re not. despite her appearance and personality, I’m pretty sure it’s implied somewhere in canon that she’s mentally 16-18? And of course, physically much older than that. I’m someone who’s legal aged but I’m assumed to be a child because of how I look and act. and it’s really annoying, not to mention humiliating.
I despise the FF.net user Kodelaine. Please read under the Read More because it is NSFW-related.
