OPs Not Commenting

(Anonymous) 2014-06-06 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
This is similar to the earlier comment on this page about not getting comments on fills, but a little more particular to a specific case.

I'm writing my first multi-chapter fill, and in the beginning the OP of the request had been very consistent about leaving comments. However, after an especially late update there hasn't been a word from OP, and since I'm unfamiliar with writing longer fills I'm not sure how to take this. Is is common for OPs to lose interest with mutli-part fills, or is it possible that the OP assumed the fill was abandoned after a month of no updates?

By no means am I going to discontinue the story. It's just a little disheartening and I feel a bit to blame for not updating fast enough, but I'm mostly just curious on how others would take this.

I wouldn't worry about it, especially if it's been a long time between updates. The OP could have switched fandoms or become so busy in real life that they no longer have the time or energy to check out the kink meme. I've had multiple fills in which the OP commented in the beginning and then in the end once the fill was done, and even several multi-chapter fills where the OP never said anything. There could be tons of reasons why the OP isn't commenting that have nothing to do with the quality of your fill, so don't worry!

I don't know how many people get on the kink meme anymore, but they certainly are being stingy with comments. I wrote six fills the other day, and got a total of three comments. I'm very discouraged right now and I don't want to continue, because the reason I even post fanfiction is for the feedback, which is both to improve my writing and because comments/whatever are great mood lifters.

I'm not used to this, because even a few months ago, my stories would usually get three or four comments on each part. I make sure to leave comments on fills I like; why is it almost no one else seems to?

Re: No comments

(Anonymous) 2014-06-13 07:07 am (UTC)(link)
You should try posting your fics elsewhere, such as FF.Net, to get a wider audience. I have no idea how many people actually use the meme anymore, but I think the numbers are getting smaller and smaller. I notice it not only in the lack of comments fills get but the fact that almost nobody writes about characters that interest me anymore whereas there used to be several authors who shared my love for a particular character. Also, rare pairings and characters seem to get no attention anymore.

Are request freezes necessary?

(Anonymous) 2014-06-14 05:38 pm (UTC)(link)
I saw the mod bring up that an anon has suggested we should give up request freezes: http://hetalia-kink.dreamwidth.org/70138.html?thread=511870714#cmt511870714

I guess we could all take a moment to talk about this. How do you feel?

Re: Are request freezes necessary?

(Anonymous) 2014-06-14 06:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I have a lot of random thoughts, haha. I've never been active on another kink meme, so I have no idea how having no freezes would affect our activity. My gut reaction says that it would lead to people just posting prompts and not filling. On the other hand, we already get much fewer fills than before, and it takes forever for new requests to come in when the meme is open. I remember that before it took about an hour or less for all the slots to be taken, and now it can be over a week.

Would having no freeze periods really change anything? I never think to myself, "hmm, I really want the request freeze to end, so I'll write something for the meme!". I bookmark all the interesting prompts and fill when them I have the time/inspiration. I've never written something just to push the meme along. The only time when I even think about the freeze is when I get a sudden idea I want to prompt and check the current progress to guess when we'll be open again. At least in my case, removing the freeze periods would have absolutely no effect on how I fill prompts.

And yet again, I'm still reluctant to see the freeze periods go. I like the excitement I get when the freeze is lifted and multiple people post their new prompts. It's fun, especially since there's sometimes discussion between the OP and potential fillers. And in my experience, the request period is the only time you'll have any chances of the OP replying to your questions since a lot of people stop paying attention to the prompts after a while and keep an eye on the fills list instead. I think that if we get rid of the request freezes so that everyone can submit their prompts whenever they feel like it, it'll further stagnate the meme.

Maybe we can experiment somehow? How about removing the freezes for a few weeks to see what happens? Or we could lower the number of required fills from 50 to 30?

Just wondering...

(Anonymous) 2014-07-07 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
Is there a hetalia kink meme equivalent in French or German (or even another language)? I did searching for French fic online using 3 years worth of French and haven't found as much as I would like.

Re: Just wondering...

(Anonymous) 2014-07-07 07:40 am (UTC)(link)
Not that I know. Have you searched at FF.Net by changing the language? That's the first thing I do when I want to find non-English fics.

I can't say anything about French, but there are some German fanfic sites that have Hetalia fics. I've read on these sites occasionally:

http://www.fanfiktion.de/Hetalia/c/102175000
http://animexx.onlinewelten.com/fanfiction/serie/3641/

On that second site, you can't see explicit material unless you have an account and have sent them proof of your age, though.

Incorrect Request Format

(Anonymous) 2014-07-11 11:26 pm (UTC)(link)
This is a bit of a ranty post, but there suddenly seems to be an inflow of incorrect prompt formats, people continuously reposting the same incorrect prompts even after being corrected by the mods, repeatedly not posting on the fills list, and then someone commenting all over the meme de-anoned.

Great, new users. But is it that hard to read the rules first? I know there's an example of the correct prompt format on the first page of each part, but could we get a bigger header linking people to the rule page. Or maybe just a page with the correct requesting format, because I'm guessing people go to the rules, see huge wall of text, and exit out.

And I understand new users might not understand formatting and such, but it's immensely frustrating when they don't communicate or respond to people pointing out mistakes. When I first got involved with the meme, I was so intimidated by the set of rules I just lurked for the first few days until I got a hang of things. I'm not saying this should be mandatory for everyone, but I really don't think there's much of an excuse for not reading over the rules.

Re: Incorrect Request Format

(Anonymous) 2014-07-13 03:30 pm (UTC)(link)
I agree that it's very frustrating. Some of the deanoning I understand (hey, sometimes people forget to log out or to press the little Anonymous button) but when I see the same prompt posted three times in a row after the OP's been corrected without the corrections? Yeah, I start to wonder if they even bother to read the critique.

Even if they are intimidated by the rules, people could just copy the format of all the other prompts of that part. That's what I did

The request freeze

(Anonymous) 2014-07-15 07:15 pm (UTC)(link)
I have noticed the request freeze isn't as long as I remembered it being. I thought it was going to end at page 30 but now it's 35. Have the rules changed regarding the number of fills needed to lift the freeze?

Re: The request freeze

(Anonymous) 2014-07-15 10:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Nah, we just had a relative low number of requests compared to the number of fills.

As someone else dearly hoping for a miracle and for the authors of those fills to come back, I'm sad to say they're both WIPs, anon. Maybe one day.

(Anonymous) 2014-07-22 05:53 am (UTC)(link)
I don't think it was outright usuk at this point, but the premise was that America was very possessive of England. England realizes this after he visits America's house and sees a picture of himself that he didn't take. America attacks him when he freaks, only to let him go, after which England escapes to Canada. I think this continued over at the author!anon's lj, but I forgot to save the links >_>

Does this story exist on the kink meme?

(Anonymous) 2014-08-04 01:40 am (UTC)(link)
I've been checking my bookmarks and doing a search on delicious but I haven't had luck so far. I'm not sure if it was posted here or in a lj and my eyes are starting to get tired.

It goes like this:
America decides to do something about his weight, so he goes to see Austria. Big mistake. Austria goes for the psycho-analyzing method in the style of Freud and calls a few certain countries for a group therapy session.

Does this story exist??

Where does this 'omegaverse' come from?

(Anonymous) 2014-08-04 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
I have been on break from any fandom related stuff (not just Hetalia) for some time. Started reading fic and I've seeing the word 'omegaverse' here and there.

Where does that word come from?

I'm certain this is a recent thing because I've been reading fanfic for 10+ years and never saw this word until now. Or maybe, I need to branch out more in terms of fandoms.

Re: Where does this 'omegaverse' come from?

(Anonymous) 2014-08-04 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
I think it started out in the Supernatural fandom. It's been around at least for a couple of years, but I think it's only relatively recently that it became this popular on our meme.

Looking for prompts

(Anonymous) 2014-08-09 01:37 am (UTC)(link)
Anything with arranged marriage/cardverse/omegaverse? Listed in the order that I would love to see them?

Anyone got a prompt that belongs to one of these categories that they want to see filled? I have my preferred pairings but to be honest, I'll fill with pretty much anyone (except for Russia/America, France/UK or incestuous pairings).

I want to get back into the Hetalia kink meme again and after getting a few lovely comments on one fill I did, I feel inspired to write more.

Re: Looking for prompts

I know there's got to be lots, so let me give you a decent list by searching some of our lovely indexes. (Also I left out most of the USUK ones for Omegaverse and Cardverse because there are so many prompts it would've taken forever to link all of them). Hopefully you can find some prompts you like in all this mess! And hopefully I didn't include any pairs or anything you didn't like. This list only goes up to part 25.

It's been a while since I've been around the meme so I feel like I might've missed a lot, but does anyone have any recommendations for fills involving Fem France? Doesn't matter if it's shippy or gen, what the ship is, complete or permanent WIP, I've just really got a need to read some stuff involving this fair lady.

Any Fills or prompts with the rest of the U.K, Ireland In WWII

I don't think I have read fills or prompts for that matter featuring the other countries in the U.K or Ireland during that era. Does anybody know of any fills or even prompts that fits the bill or something similar where they fight alongside together?

... Also, has there ever been a prompt/fill with the Isle of Man on this meme? I think I've seen one once.

Have your reading tastes changed since you started?

(Anonymous) 2014-08-12 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Have you found that you reading tastes changed since you started reading fic in this fandom? Different taste in genre or pairing or narrative style? Kinks?

I started reading mostly USUK. There are wonderful fills about there but tbh, I don't think I ever saw their relationship as anything but platonic. I still adore England and I'm growing fonder towards Finland, Russia and Spain.
And... I hate to admit this but watersports doesn't bother me as a kink anymore. At least in fic.

Re: Have your reading tastes changed since you started?

(Anonymous) 2014-08-13 02:19 am (UTC)(link)
I started out vehemently against USUK because I just could not see the relationship happening because England raised America. IDK what really happened, but I ship USUK pretty well now.
But if there's shit with France in a fic, I always X out because France is one of my faves and FrUK is my OTP haha

Writing an Omegaverse Fic

(Anonymous) 2014-08-13 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
I was wondering what makes a compelling omegaverse fill? I've read a few fills here but I don't think I've read enough or maybe, it works better in other fandoms than Hetalia.

Constant misfires

Is there a technical bug on the meme or lots of new people because I feel like every time I go to a page, there's a misplaced fill or a comment. I feel like a dick since I'm basically complaining about high activity, but come on. Pay attention to where you're posting your stuff.

Re: Constant misfires

(Anonymous) 2014-08-14 09:36 pm (UTC)(link)
It happened to me too on the first fill I posted on the kink meme. I was so paranoid about getting everything right, I kept editing and reediting the story to make it sound perfect. Apparently, if you preview/edit a comment four or more times, it causes the post to show up as a new comment rather than under the comment you replied to.

However, I don't see any excuse for incorrect formatting or not posting to the fills list, since there is a rule book, and as a newer member I made sure I understood everything before actively participating in the meme.

Looking for a fill involving russia canada and america

(Anonymous) 2014-08-31 09:54 am (UTC)(link)
I can't seem to find a fill I remember reading. Russia confuses canada and america for Lithuania and Latvia respectively. It'd be very appreciated of someone could tell me where to find it

Is it just me...?

(Anonymous) 2014-09-12 01:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Or is there someone posting loads of quite similar requests? They all involve the same characters, the same setting/AU and the same pairing (more often, a love triangle of sorts.)

Am I the only to one to have noticed something like this?

The bottom!America meme?

(Anonymous) 2014-09-15 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe it's just me, but it seems like a lot of the requests are for bottom!America, and the requests that get attention and fills are all for America bottoming.

It's a little disappointing when I want to request something with top!America, but the chances of it getting filled are pretty nonexistent.

Re: The bottom!America meme?

(Anonymous) 2014-09-16 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
I think there's a general trend that people like their favorite character to bottom because, usually, sex scenes are written from the bottom's perspective and focus on what he's doing and feeling. But doesn't at least USUK have plenty of top!America?

Anyway, request it! Something will never get written if there aren't prompts for it.

How do people feel about dark fics these days?

(Anonymous) 2014-09-23 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
Because it's close to impossible to write a dark fic without portraying someone as a bad guy. It's still possible, but very tricky to do.

The old meme seemed to have a lot of wonderfully horrible stuff, but it seems that people now throw a huge fuss about the usual characters being tossed into the evil role (cough, Russia), and this devastates me because although I refuse to make one character a psychotic axe-wielding murderer, I do like to delve into the darker side of nation persona existence. Such as how immortality might affect them, would it desensitize them to violence and cruelty, etc.

I'm also fed up with the same old relationship, sex, love triangle type stuff being written these days.

So I'm curious to know what people think, or how they feel about this. I know there are some pretty amazingly written screwed-up stories here and there, but it's hard to find something dark with an interesting amount of psychological depth.

Re: How do people feel about dark fics these days?

(Anonymous) 2014-09-23 02:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Hmm...I'd like to read more darker stuff but I am cynical about it because so often, in a lot of fandoms, dark stuff is so poorly handled. For the most part, dark stuff is dark for the sake of being "OMGWTFBBQ SO GRIMDARK!!" rather than actually exploring the darker elements in canon, such as the nature of immortality. I can think of a couple of infamous examples within the Hetalia fandom of dark!fic gone wrong.

I mean, speaking personally, I'm a bit iffy on writing dark!fic for Hetalia because it's so hard to write dark!fic and still keep the characters in character, since it's such a light series that only occasionally brushes against the darker side.

Not to mention, people might just be a bit tired of seeing dark!fic and so don't write it so much. A lot of media is quite bleak and dark so people might prefer lighter fanfiction because all other media is full of dark stuff; see the recent trend of dystopia in YA fiction. But hey, if people can reconcile the light nature of Hetalia with darker subjects then I will be all over that.

Also, YMMV on what counts as dark fic. Is a fic where everyone dies at the end a dark fic, even if the tone focusses more on the loving relationships between the characters? Or is a dark fic one where everyone lives but are all tortured and broken? Or is it one where the atmosphere is so bleak that a bad end is the only one that seems possible?

Sorry for the mini essay

How soon is too soon?

(Anonymous) 2014-09-28 05:11 am (UTC)(link)
I'll take this moment a head of time to make apologies for any controversy this stirs up.

People always say if you have to ask if it's too soon, then it's too soon. But I want other anons inputs on this. I'm not going to refer to recent events like Ferguson or ISIS, because I know its way too soon to even start with that.

But how long do you think it needs to be before it's no longer too soon? Granted, it probably depends on the severity of the situation, but I'm curious to know what others think. A specific example I have in mind happened back in '11, and hasn't been touched much by the fandom- the few times I've seen it touched upon (not on the meme, but tumblr/ff.net/etc), I either see one of two general reactions. One of people encouraging them to write more about it, and the other being that how dare they try and write about that already (even when people from that country state they have no problems with it, people from other countries oddly enough say they shouldn't be). I don't think I've seen this event pop up for a while, but I saw it around a few times last summer and it recently came to mind.

To me, as long as it's been at least a year or two, and it's not something that's brought up often, I feel like it should be alright, especially if you can get the consensus from people who were more effected by the event, that people have moved on. Obviously, if it's something big that made a big impact would require more time. Don't you dare say its too soon to be talking about, say, ww2. I seriously saw someone say that once

So anons, how soon is too soon to you?

And if anyone's curious, the event I had in mind was the 2011 shootings in Norway

Re: How soon is too soon?

(Anonymous) 2014-09-28 07:20 am (UTC)(link)
I don't think people will ever agree on this. For some people, it's always going to be too soon while others don't care even if it happened yesterday. If you want to write something, just go for it but be ready that someone might react badly.

Personally, the shootings in Norway are never going to be an okay topic of fanfiction for me because that incident involved so many private citizens, most of whom were underage. I don't mind writing about war, violent revolutions, natural catastrophes etc. even if they happened recently, but this particular case just rubs me the wrong way. But that could be partly because back when it happened, there was this particular author writing Denmark/Norway hurt/comfort about it even before they had finished counting the bodies and informing the families whether their child was alive, and that was definitely too soon.

Humorous, dark crack, or fluffy Russia/America recs ?

(Anonymous) 2014-10-04 11:24 am (UTC)(link)
Hello I would seriously enjoy a funny, crack, dark crack, or fluffy Russia/America fic. What's your favorite? It can hit sad notes or have some blood as long as it does have humor in it. I'm especially interested in Cold War Era fics.

I just realized everything I read is so perverted ;w;. I'm sorry if you were looking for something non-sexual. If anything else comes to mind I'll add it here.

There are some more outside of the kink meme, which I don't know if I'm allowed to link. A good one that comes to mind is Dropping By written by ProcrastinatingPalindrome

Request dumping: is it bad?

(Anonymous) 2014-10-11 01:52 pm (UTC)(link)
In light of the very obvious request dump on page 45, I've had a thought. Request dumping: how bad is it?

Considering how slow the meme's been these past few months, I can say that people posting multiple requests isn't as bad/selfish as it was when the requests were open for a day at most, so long as those requests are not near enough identical, at least in my opinion. I mean, most people will get the chance to post their request.

But how annoying is request dumping to everyone else? To be more specific, when I say "request dumping" I mean someone posting multiple requests one after the other, all within a few hours of each other.

Re: Request dumping: is it bad?

(Anonymous) 2014-10-11 02:01 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't mind request dumping at all, except if all the prompts are so similar that it feels like someone is trying to fill the meme with their pairing/kink in hopes that someone will write them what they want if they block out the competition.

Request from a returning anon

(Anonymous) 2014-10-11 10:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, kink meme~ I've recently been on a stint of writing for other fandoms and I'm in the mood to write another Hetalia fic that isn't one of my WIPs.

I'm looking for some prompt ideas to kick off and nothing's jumped out at me from the latest part. So if anyone has any prompts (preferably non-sexual) that they think deserve a fill, please feel free to rec them for me. All I ask in terms of AUs is no Omegaverse or Cardverse please :)
