Gonna laugh the night away~

(Anonymous) 2009-09-07 12:58 am (UTC)(link)
I've only been stalking [livejournal.com profile] hetalia_kink for a couple of weeks, so I don't know much about the fills that have have happened in Parts 1-5 and the first three quarters of Part 6.

Let's fondly recap the ones that made us fall to the floor in hysterics!

MISSED CONNECTIONS....SORT OF

(Anonymous) 2009-09-07 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
Ah I've been meaning to ask an OP of a request I never got to second :C

http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/6850.html?thread=10673090#t10673090

The OP of the Prussia/Fem! Italy request, if you're still watching the kink meme, drop me a comment, I just wanted to ask you a quick question.

Sorry Questioning Anon!

(Anonymous) 2009-09-07 11:53 am (UTC)(link)
So, I was the OP of the "barefoot in the kitchen and pregnant" request. It was filled, but I was asked by another anon if I minded a second fill. Now, I can't reply to that because Part 6 is maxed out, but my answer to that:

Of course not!! Fill away lovely anons, with as many fills as you would like. And this goes for any request I've ever made. I would assume (with the risk of making an ass out of myself) that no OP in his or her right mind would object to multiple fills.

Not that there aren't other great requests out there, but I can't imagine multiple fills ever being a bad thing. Anyone else?

OP's aren't able to reply to such questions on maxed parts, but my advice to any potential author anons is that if you see a request you like and are inspired by, go ahead with the fill, even if you can't get that stamp of approval. In most cases, I feel the OP would rather have any fill than none at all. If not, they can always rephrase the request to clarify the details at a later point. I think that, in the end, it's always better to have more fills.

Re: Sorry Questioning Anon!

(Anonymous) 2009-09-18 06:47 pm (UTC)(link)
This is the author anon who wanted to write the second fill~. *didn't notice the discussion thing until today XD;*

Oh, gosh, I'm glad. xD; And I think I'll be taking your advice. :)

doing fills off the meme

(Anonymous) 2009-09-10 07:01 am (UTC)(link)
Sooooo I have been stalking the kink meme pages for a while, and then number six got filled while there was still a fic on there that I haven't finished yet. I know that per standard rules, you're supposed to post the rest of what you have on a different meme (aka, I would post the rest of it on number 7), but something about that makes me...unfomfortable, I guess? Because then how is the OP going to find it again, I wonder?

Also, does anyone else do this--just browse the meme for prompts, picks ones you like, and then write a fic with the prompt off the kink meme with the original prompt attached in the post? I guess I'm just not very into writing things anonymous, but does this strictly go against the rules? *has the habit of de-anoning only shortly after filling anon prompt*

Re: doing fills off the meme

(Anonymous) 2009-09-10 08:06 am (UTC)(link)
i suggest you post the rest of your fill in the past-parts fills post and post the link of it on the fills list post. that way op of your fill will probably see it.

(Anonymous) 2009-09-10 05:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Have any of you ever self filled before?
If so links if you wanna share~

Because I think I'm going to do a couple of my own requests to kind of help along with the request freeze, but I'd be too embarrassed if it was like a trail of my requests all in one shot.I have quite a few requests orz

Not to mention I'm an art fag which makes it worse.

Possible fill but...

(Anonymous) 2009-09-11 01:59 pm (UTC)(link)
I wanted to fill this prompt here http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/10530.html?thread=16878626#t16878626 with either France, America or Prussia.

but I have to admit, I cannot for the life of me, find a reason that is usable. I thought about politics, but Italian politics (like, the vicepremier) are disgusting enough that thinking them as a prelude to sex sicken me.

so, I wanted to ask my fellow anons here, do you have any good tip for me? I swear, the first good one gets me writing right away. I usually don't go asking like this, but really, it stumps me and I'm feeling a bit annoyed by my inability to think it myself...

Re: Possible fill but...

(Anonymous) 2009-09-11 08:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, it's a running joke in both Hetalia and (at least this anon's) real life history classes that you don't want the Italians on your side in a war since Italy is known to jump ships when their allies appear to be losing, and are rather useless in fighting.

We have seen Veneziano try to be more useful to Germany in the strips, but over all, he doesn't seem to let the fact that everyone expects him to surrender get to him.

But this anon feels that there is more to Veneziano than meets the eye. I really think most of his bubbliness is just an act, and it seriously bothers him that no one sees him as useless. As I said, my history class (today, actually) made fun of the fact that the Italians are not the best allies to have.

Perhaps Veneziano is tired of hearing those jokes and assumptions all the time? While at a meeting, someone stupidly makes such a statement and that sends Veneziano over the edge?

*shrug* Just an idea. I really mean no offense to anyone.

Looking for an OP

I'm looking for the OP of this post -- http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/10530.html?thread=16293922#t16293922 the lulzy 'Take Your Child to Work Day' post about America taking one of his States to work with him that was posted on 8-12-09.

I've gotten an idea for a (second) fill but my muses want to take it in a slightly different direction from what's worded in the post (ie more serious instead of cracky) and I'd like to know if it's okay before sitting down to seriously plot the thing out for anything besides my own amusement.

I think we all know that aphkink-aid and aphkink-request have stalled or their mods have gone AWOL.

I'm not criticizing them or anything, Real Life may have taken priority, or something.

However, it's been awhile and I think we may need to address this issue further. Especially since I personally find navigating the sites somewhat difficult.

I'm thinking of making a new LJ-site that would archive and post any activity on the kink meme.

What I hope this would include:
- digest of fills
- digest of recent requests
- index of filled posts
- index of unfinished posts
- index of unfilled requests
- discussion page

The thing that's stalling me right now are basic organization questions. Please give me your opinions anons! Especially on these main questions:

- Should this kind of site be an individual LJ-journal or a moderated LJ-community?
- How should these indexes be organized? By Part (i.e. Part One/Two/etc.), characters, or pairing?

And the less pressing ones at the moment:
- How often should the digests be updated? Daily, semi-daily (like 2-3 days), or weekly?
- In the digests of fills/requests, should a short summary be given?
- Should indexed fills include a summary of the story?

Those are the questions that are plaguing me at the moment.

Please give me input!

Just one anon's opinions

(Anonymous) 2009-09-11 08:22 pm (UTC)(link)
- Should this kind of site be an individual LJ-journal or a moderated LJ-community?
Modded. That way if real life gets busy for the founder, there are others who can help.

- How should these indexes be organized? By Part (i.e. Part One/Two/etc.), characters, or pairing?
Characters

And the less pressing ones at the moment:
- How often should the digests be updated? Daily, semi-daily (like 2-3 days), or weekly?

Daily might be too crazy for the mods behind it. Weekly might be too large. I would say a couple of times a week (maybe every other day or something)

- In the digests of fills/requests, should a short summary be given?
- Should indexed fills include a summary of the story?
Yes to both, though the second one is probably not a priority.

Regarding this request, in part 6 (http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/10530.html?thread=16418594#t16418594), Race up in the mountain, I am planning on filling it, and I'm actually already writing a bit.

If the OP of that request is around, I'd like to ask them if South/North and FrUk hints are ok? Because I'd like to write that in. It won't be anything too explicit, but I still wanted to ask.

Have you discovered any new kinks through the meme? Or just encountered something that didn't sound that hot too you and ended up making you drool all over the keyboard? Or maybe you found a pairing that didn't do much for you until you found that one fic that just completely won you over? Tell me about your experiences with new fetishes/pairings and surprise sexiness via Kink Meme.

I haven't found any new kinks other than confirming my suspicions that I like twincest and May-December relationships but I have learned a lot of new terms. Like "rimming". I could have gone my whole life without learning that. Thanks [livejournal.com profile] hetalia_kink. "OTL

Good fill?

(Anonymous) 2009-09-15 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
I came to wonder; what makes a great fill?

I know it's all about what you're into, and what kind of request there's been filled, but over all, then
-What makes you read on?
-What makes you drop to finish reading a fill?
-What does it take for a fill, before you comment on it?
-Are there things (such as grammatic mistakes, words spelled the wrong way, certain kinks etc.) that will make you drop reading a fill? If so, what?

Feel free to anwer only some or none - just.. what makes a great fill for you? :'D

Re: Good fill?

(Anonymous) 2009-09-15 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm not really sure about what exactly makes a great fill, but I figured I'd answer your questions anyway. :)

-Interesting plot and turning of events(plot twists for the win, anyone?), good writing...and, although it's a rather personal thing, I love it when the writer is able to build a somewhat "harmonic atmosphere" without neglecting(for lack of a better word) the original request.It usually makes the fill a rather nice read. :3
-I usually drop when the story gets too long and starts, uh, diverging. Like, when the prompt is not the prompt anymore, that sort of thing? I love multichapters as much as I love oneshots, but when it starts getting too random...And I tend to stop reading when I don't like the writing as well(I'm quite picky about the writing, which is not really nice, I guess...D: Especially when I myself cannot write to save my life, haha. orz).
-I comment on the fills I like or the ones I think look promising. :)
-Yes. D: Grammar mistakes kind of put me off a bit. English is not my mother tongue(and I guess it's pretty noticeable from this comment that my English is quite bad), but still. When the fic has too many spelling and grammar mistakes(I mean, enough for a non-native speaker like me to notice), I usually tend to stop reading them...Of course, if the story itself is interesting, I'll usually just overlook them and keep reading it. :3

What makes a request inviting?

(Anonymous) 2009-09-15 11:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Curious anon here with a question for the others.

What do you think makes a fill likely to be "seconded" or to be filled? I haven't been able to figure out a consistent pattern.

Re: What makes a request inviting?

(Anonymous) 2009-09-15 11:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Sex, dream parenting, mpreg, lulz, and appeal to the lowest common denominator. Since the majority demographic here is adolescent/post-adolescent females, this is no surprise. Fortunately, when they get old enough to run the world, this anon will most likely be dead.

Trying to Link to Request for Fill

(Anonymous) 2009-09-16 10:28 am (UTC)(link)
Anon is working on a sort of double fill, but can only find the request for one part of it.

The one part is nations used like princesses of old, sold to cement alliances and so on. Got the link to this request.

The second was a request to see a nation losing his/her virginity via a ritual of some sort. I don't remember what part it was from but I think it was in either part 4 or 5. Sadly, I have no idea where! Does anyone have an idea who could help me out?

History

(Anonymous) 2009-09-16 10:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Any good history fics that anyone wants to recap? I'm talking bout serious fics that have been researched and fussed over to make sure all the history is accurate and the story is really focused on the historical aspect of Hetalia.

Such as the Nazi twin experiment fill. One of the most well written stories I have read, and so far it's one of only two stories (I'm not just talking fanfiction, but books, movies, etc.) that have made me cry. The fact that that story is based on something that really happened made the emotions even stronger.

I thought that Gloria Patri, the WWI fic about Canada, UK and Vimy Ridge was written extremely well. Also I found it interesting that the anon who wrote it was American, but still managed to recognize alot of the social issues that WWI-Canada had.

http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/632.html?thread=3966840#t3966840

As well, I thought the Turkey/Australia Gallipoli fanfiction "Birth of a Nation" was done extremely well in so many ways. I think the author expressed the POVs between Turkey and Australia extremely well. I adore this fanfiction.

Hetalia Kindex is recruiting helpers!

[identity profile] irrationalsense.livejournal.com 2009-09-18 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
Greetings from the [livejournal.com profile] hetalia_kindex! The organizing of our beloved but messy kink meme is under way.

We are mad, perhaps, yes. But ambitiously mad. I'd like to think Rome-level ambitiously mad.

Right now, we're looking for Helpers to join our staff.

Helpers are those who log fill entries (and later, request entries). Fill entries are how we organize the Kindex. Every fill has its own fill entry, which will make it easy to find due to our tagging system.

We ask for people with some minimal experience with HTML. But we've got templates and we're here to help or teach you anything you need to know.

However, I would like to stress that this is work. We're having fun, but it's still work and it does take time. But the Kindex is very friendly and willing to help you out if you need it.

For more information or to offer your assistance, please head over to this link:

Hetalia Kindex: Recruiting Helpers (http://community.livejournal.com/hetalia_kindex/79605.html)

Thanks for your support, anons!

- The Hetalia Kindex staff

Spain/US Recs

(Anonymous) 2009-09-18 04:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Not sure if this is allowed so if it's not please feel free to delete.

I am starting to develop a serious crush on Spain and woke up this morning with a serious craving for Spain/US I poked around the various aid sites and the delicious account but there wasn't any tag for the pairing that I could find and I'm not really up to hunting through a million America fics to just find a few so...

Recs for Spain/US fics posted here pretty please. The longer, the juicer, the better written, the better but I know it's a fairly rare-pair so I'll take anything at this point. :-)

Thank you!

Re: Spain/US Recs

[identity profile] irrationalsense.livejournal.com 2009-09-19 08:28 am (UTC)(link)
It is a rare pairing.

There's only one fill that I actually know offhand of the pairing. But it's a fantastic fic: gorgeously written, with awesome imagery and interaction. It's what I like to call a converter fic.

I don't have the kink_meme link, but I do have the link to the deanoned version. It's with Spain, young America, and horses...I won't go further and spoil anything.

Free as the Birds, Wild as the Winds (http://community.livejournal.com/hetalia/3307997.html)

Even if you aren't a fan of the pairing, you'll enjoy this fic. It's just that good.

Clear Skies

(Anonymous) 2009-09-18 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
AuthorAnon of Clear Skies here~. (http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/10960.html?thread=18512848#t18512848) For one thing, I'm posting to tell you that I'm not dead and haven't forgotten the fill. I've just been busy with school and then got sick, and when that happened I was like, "Well...shit. D:"

ANYWAY. The real reason I'm posting is to ask a few questions 'cause I'm currently stuck on writing chapter two. D:

~Any headcanons you wanna share about the North Americans if they were uncolonized? I'd like to see if I could incorporate them with my own headcanons into the story.
~Is there anything plot-wise you guys want to see, other than the Cold War (if there is one) and World Wars (that's a definite)?
~(Not serious question is not serious) Should I change the title? I won't change it now, of course, but I meant if I de-anon. If yes, what do you think the title should be?

I'll probably ask more when I think of them, but for now...thanks for at least taking the time to read this? XD;

Re: Clear Skies

(Anonymous) 2009-09-19 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
Regarding the title, I'd say to leave it for now. You're only on chapter one, and it looks like you have quite a few plans. Maybe later on during the fic, you'll come up with a title you like better (or that you think fits better) and change it to that, then. But for now, I quite like the title Clear Skies :)

Personally, I think both would be able to see the spiritual like England...and maybe even more so than England. Like, seeing the spirits inherent in nature, and stuff like that.

Potential Filler Looking for OP (ChinaxAmerica)

(Anonymous) 2009-09-19 04:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Link to Request: http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/10530.html?thread=18116130#t18116130

I'm really interested in doing this fill and I already have somewhat of an idea for how I'm gonna go about this, but Part 6 maxed before I could ask the OP some questions.

So, anyway, these are my questions before I work on this:

1. What sort of methods would OP like to see or expect Yao to try in his attempts to coax Alfred out of isolation?

2. Would OP mind if I put a sort of passive-aggressive rivalry between Yao and Ivan for Alfred's attention? Because what I have plotted out is headed in that direction... Either way there's going to be strong undertones of both pairings.

3. Lastly, I've had very little practice with writing smut, and my skills in writing it would be extremely disappointing for such a good request. Would OP care if it were only vague mentions and things along those lines?

The OP is found. (ChinaxAmerica)

(Anonymous) 2009-09-19 09:50 pm (UTC)(link)
My request hasn't been forgotten? *cheers*

On to answers:

1. In my mind, I've always imagined Yao to be the more subtle type. Maybe he'll start off small and gradually build up: maybe calling him every so often to talk, light touches, etc., to collaborating more, coaxing Alfred on "dates," that sort of thing. I won't be too specific: I'd like to leave a little leeway for your own ideas. :)

2. I would not mind at all. Russia/America is a definite OTP of mine.

3. Don't worry about it - smut is not required. I wouldn't mind vague hints or allusions and that kind of thing. Sometimes, such hints can be just as sexy as explicit sex.

Do what you feel is best, wonderful author-non. I'll be waiting patiently.
