looking for a fill involving america canada and sweden

(Anonymous) 2014-10-19 02:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Ok so basically there was this fill I really enjoyed but I lost the link. I'd be very grateful if someone could help me find it. Pretty much what it was is america and canada well more like america learns after speaking with his mother native america that sweden is their father, they then confront sweden about it and they have a little chat. After america and canda have left finland pops in, turns out he heard the whole thing. If anyone knows where this fill is please help me

I dare everyone to not request omegaverse for a week.

(Anonymous) 2014-10-23 04:39 pm (UTC)(link)
I'd rather have omegaverse than a dead meme. The meme moves slowly these days, so there are enough opportunities for everyone to request whatever they want.

I'm so fed up with the incorrect formatting requests that I just don't care anymore. I'll stare at it, I'll feel annoyed, but I no longer have the energy to type a response to the OP or give them a correct example of their prompt, especially when doing so often results in an on-thread debate of whether formatting matters.

(Anonymous) 2014-11-07 07:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm with you. I mean, it's their job to make sure they follow the rules, not anyone else's. More often, if I do offer corrections, I'll just say, "You're not allowed to do X thing" and not bother giving them a correct example.

I think the worst example was where the same person dumped a load of requests and not one of them was correctly formatted. Thank God they were deleted.

Hello kink meme. Let's have a game

(Anonymous) 2014-11-17 06:49 pm (UTC)(link)
I've been pretty busy-bizz lately and haven't really had time to go through the current part/past parts to find some prompts to sink my teeth into.

So I thought I'd appeal to the masses (???) and ask for you guys to suggest some prompts. If anyone's interested, I'll be lurking around on the discussion post until about Friday and then, if anyone has any prompt suggestions, I'll knuckle down and try and get some filled.

I'm a major Nordics whore so if anyone has any Nordic prompts they want to see filled, I'll be more than happy to do so

Re: Hello kink meme. Let's have a game

(Anonymous) 2014-11-18 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
Heeey anon here's some Nordic mostly Norway prompts, with a few others, but if you have certain characters/pairs you like, I most likely know some prompts to link you too. Also I tried to stick to general ones since I wasn't sure if you had stuff you didn't like writing/triggers/anything like that. Regardless, hope you find something you like in all this!

setting multiple stories in the same au?

(Anonymous) 2014-11-23 07:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Anyone here ever done this? The stories in planning don't connect with each other outside of small references but i thought it'll be fun to do world building but from other characters point of veiw. Can't make up my mind if it sounds like a good idea or a stupid idea.

Re: setting multiple stories in the same au?

(Anonymous) 2014-12-07 02:50 am (UTC)(link)
I've seen this done very frequently, so I think you should go for it anon! Just header it with "In x au, at this point in time, related/unrelated to y" and you should be fine. Linking to previous works in the AU would help too.

(Anonymous) 2014-11-29 12:39 am (UTC)(link)
I am beyond thankful for the canonverse fest. I'm seeing so many amazing prompts already and I'm so motivated to write. I'd been a bit uninvolved with the meme lately, but I'm excited to get back into gear.

I've been mostly ambivalent about omegaverse up to this point, but someone requesting it during the canonfest using the technicality of making them nations was my breaking point.

Now I just want this fad to go away.

(Anonymous) 2014-12-03 06:13 pm (UTC)(link)
The funny thing is, I've seen a couple of Omegaverse requests where they're still Nations. And they were treated as being complete AUs so I don't know where that anon got the idea that "making them Nations = canon"

serious (or "serious)!America fics (rec request)

(Anonymous) 2014-12-06 10:18 am (UTC)(link)
I'm hoping someone can pretty please help me find any fic recs where America is serious about something. It doesn't have to be personality wise (as in he could still be his silly, informal self and being all dumb etc) but as long as he is actually doing something important, even if only to him, or its a fic with him even secretly being mature then I'd love to see it.

the canonfest

(Anonymous) 2014-12-06 06:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Im not enjoying it. It's not just because I am an omegaverse fan, but because I love pirate AUs and Cardverse AUs and future AUs and historical AUs and zombie apocalypse AUs and western AUs and romantic AUs and etc etc. I like seeing how characters would react in different situations, staying true to themselves as the characters we were introduced to in canon. I write a lot on the meme, and to me, fanfics in pure canon is boring, just like how all those AUs are boring to some other people. I like some headcanons in the fics I both read and write, but those cannot be added to a canon fic. I want a different author's take on the characters that I know. If I wanted to see a character actin g perfectly canonly, without deterring from who they are and without adding depth to what is there (added depth would be based on fanon and headcanon-) i watch the show.

And also, if there's an entire dedication to canonverse, shouldn't there be dedications to other verses? Like historically-accurate fests? Or future-speculation fests!

Re: the canonfest

(Anonymous) 2014-12-06 06:48 pm (UTC)(link)
The point of the canonverse fest is to keep them countries, not that you can't throw in headcanons.

Where in the world did you get that idea?

You know what guys? I am enjoying the canonverse fest. It's not so hard to wait 10 days or five pages for the event to end. And the reason why we don't have AU fests? Because we brought to Hetalia through the canon.

And regarding confusion over what counts as AU and what doesnt:

It's a canonverse fest. A canonVERSE fest (like an anon mentioned above). Not a canon fest.
This means the prompts exist in the universe of canon. Characters should be based off their canon personalities, but they aren't required to be so restricted to the strips that you can't expand them a bit or place them in relationships.

The nation based omegaverse prompts significantly alters the dynamic of the canon universe because it places nations into roles, which alternate history and futuristic prompts don't do. It could still be acceptable if we were to be lenient, but it's hardly a rare AU so I wouldn't bet on it.

(Anonymous) 2014-12-06 11:18 pm (UTC)(link)
+1 to everything

The meme is mostly AUs nowadays, so I'm not sure why the anon is so bent out of shape about there being a focus on canonverse for such a short period of time.

What do you think of this fandom?

(Anonymous) 2014-12-07 03:29 pm (UTC)(link)
I've been to a BUNCH of different fandoms on LJ, dreamwidth, Tumblr etc. and I've gotta say this one is kinda at the bottom of the barrel. I LOVE the fics, I LOVE the art, I love the work done here. The people in this fandom are one of the most talented ones I've run across but since the time it first started I've seen it sorta just go downhill with the type of people in it. I stay for the works , not the people . In a few other fandoms the works maybe not the best but everyone seems to get along, are super friendly, inviting, comment on nearly every fill given etc. It's really weird going from a place where you make friends easily and discuss things with an open mind to...here where a lot of people seem to want to pick a fight (not a recent thing I've noticed this a while ago).

I didn't make this to rant about this place. I genuinely would like to know what the fans here think about the fandom. Not just in dreamwidth/the kink meme but also outside of it.

Re: What do you think of this fandom?

(Anonymous) 2014-12-07 04:27 pm (UTC)(link)
I've had mixed results with the fandom. I am a cosplayers and I attend cons, usually as France or Russia. For the most part, people are welcome and accepting and get along nicely (hell I ended up dating one of them for eight months) and the friends I have made stay around for quite some time. The show itself and the things people have done with the show is amazing- hetalia is a fandom that is rather hard to leave. It is always there. You can relate Hetalia to pretty much anything and you can do almost anything with it. The versatility of the show is amazing, considering all the directions the canon and the fanon take.

However, my bad experiences with the fandom is over damn shipping wars. France is my favorite character, and fruk is my favorite pairing, and because of that, other members of the fandom can get rather hostile toward me. I think people need to loosen up a bit when it comes to pairinga and which characters they like and dislike. Maybe the issues I've had have only been with the extreme end of the USUK fanbase, but I have been called pretty much any insult france has been, just for liking france. And when I try to find a fruk rp on omegle, I get bashed by usuk fans. I think people need to just chill out and respect someone else when they ship something they don't agree with.

I'm looking for a fill where Canada and America were fighting and Canada insulted America and made him cry. It was based off of a manga with the same situation. The story was very sweet and I'd love to find it again it had a sex scene in it where Canada had sex with America.

Snapped!

I was hoping you guys could help me. I adore snapped!characters, but they have to be well done. You know, there are only so many times I can read about Canada going nuts on someone for ignoring him.

My absolute favorite was a sequel to the FCGB where America retreated into himself and became a mirthless god of international commerce.

I am not looking for perfection here... Just something reasonable, interesting... impossibly angst-ridden?Crack fiction is acceptable... Could anyone be so awesome as to give me a nice list of snapped!fics?

Request Request?

I made a request once upon a time for some WWII Germany/France. Can anyone tell me if it was ever filled. It was somewhere between Parts one and four I think.

Do you remember what the request was? I remember reading some mpreg GerFra, and I can try to find the link again for you :3

Looking for prompts

(Anonymous) 2014-12-22 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm in the mood to write something historical and somewhat serious. If anyone has any links to prompts, I'd much appreciate it.

I'm particularly interested in something involving Greece and/or Spain, South Italy. Shipping or gen are both fine.

I found one that looks like it would be historical and serious, but it focuses on Russia. Does that work? I can try and find some more.

Average Request-to-Fill time

(Anonymous) 2014-12-26 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
Sounds like a stupid question, but what is the usual time that elapses between making your request and someone filling it?
On another note, when someone says they're interested in a fill, roughly how long does it take until the fill is posted?
I personally have seen a range of times, but I was wondering about you guys.

To be honest, not every request gets filled. If it were so, we'd probably have as many fills as requests for each part.

If it helps, I just calculated and found that within the last year 25% of my requests have been filled, some within the same day and others more than six months later.

Similar Requests

(Anonymous) 2014-12-28 06:24 am (UTC)(link)
I feel like the requests I've been saying lately look almost identical to ones I've seen before, but I can't remember whether the previously posted ones are ancient (in which there's no harm in them being reposted) or only from last part (in which it's a bit unnecessary to repeat).

But I don't want to be a dick and point it out, even though I think some of them were already filled.

With the indexes not being all that updated, it's really easy to have more than one request for the same thing across parts and/or pages. I understand its really difficult to keep the indexes current, but its also really difficult to page through them.

requesting pairings

(Anonymous) 2015-01-13 11:20 pm (UTC)(link)
I know there is an "Anything Goes" post, but is there a place someone can recommend a pairing to be written? Like I really want to get into RusPrus, but I don't know where to start on the meme.

Re: requesting pairings

(Anonymous) 2015-01-13 11:38 pm (UTC)(link)
You could pick out prompts that interest you that list "Any/Any" pairing in the subject. I'd recommend checking out the index but it's pretty dead, I think.

You could try requesting some RusPrus prompts here on the discussion post; I'm sure there's an anon out there with a few bookmarked.

Indexing - Delicious vs Pinboard & Preferences

[personal profile] yuuago 2015-01-14 03:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I hope that people here still use indexes, because I'm looking for input. This is specifically about the Nordic Index, which is why I'm posting logged in - and because I want to make sure input I receive goes to my inbox - but maybe others will find it useful.

My main question is: Do people who use the indexes have a preference for Delicious or Pinboard? Or does it not matter, as long as there is a stable index on a site that works properly?

The problem: Recently, both importing and exporting broke on Delicious. My indexing method was to update on Delicious, since more people seemed to use it, and then import the updates to Pinboard, since it is more stable. But with export broken, I couldn't do that.

Exporting on Delicious is fixed now, but importing is disabled, which is not a good sign at all. This latest problem, after a series of problems with Delicious, does not leave me optimistic about that site.

Current options are:
A. Continue indexing on Delicious and importing the updates to Pinboard, exporting backups before and after work, until Delicious breaks again.
B. Abandon Delicious and only update via Pinboard. Export flat-HTML backups frequently. Try to find another backup site just in case.
C. ?????

I'm leaning toward A for now. But I would appreciate any input you guys might have, both on this specific thing and on Delicious vs Pinboard, and also on indexing in general. And if anyone has suggestions for a C option, that would be great.

Personally, I like the layout of Delicious more, mostly it's because that's the layout I'm more comfortable with. Pinboard seems to have the same layout, if a slightly more barebones version of it. I guess I'd recommend you keep using both if Delicious is more popular, but I'd be totally willing to convert to Pinboard supposing indexers started using it.

Also, thank you for your work. Indexing is so value to the kink meme, and I really appreciate it.
