Discussion Post


【Discussion post archive 1 | 2

Self-explanatory. Here you can talk with other anons about fills, prompts, past connections, anything related to the kink meme!

Please try to keep this post ON TOPIC to discussions related to the kink meme, like rule changes, help finding lost prompts, and questions/discussion pertaining directly to fills or prospective fills. If you just want to talk about Hetalia in an anonymous environment, please head over to [personal profile] aphanon_meme

What you read/request/write

(Anonymous) 2011-02-12 03:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Do you usually request the same pairing/kinks you like to write? Do you read about the same pairing you tend to fill?

I'm asking this because I tend to request for my OTP, and the 90% of fills I read are about them.

But then, when I have to fill myself, I never do about them. I think it's because of a lack of confidence. I know perfectly my OTP and their possible dynamics, and also have my own headcanon for them, but everytime I find an awesome request for them, I just feel I wouldn't do them justice.

Thus, I feel more comfortable writing about pairings I don't usually read about. And that's weird XD What about you, anons? Any similar incoherences or are you die hard shippers in every field?

Are there any indexes you really want?

Are you working on any indexes right now?

What ever happened to this fill: http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/10456.html?thread=17593560#t17593560?

It's about Scarlet Pimpernel!England and it's incomplete. Is it finished or is it really unfinished?

Food Fight

(Anonymous) 2011-02-13 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
It was part 16 I think. Does any one have the link to a food fight request for all the nations?

Jigoku Shoujo crossover prompt?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-13 02:54 am (UTC)(link)
Anon seems to recall a prompt for a nonspecific crossover with Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl), but cannot seem to find it or possibly may have seen it on a different anon kink meme. Failing that specific prompt, is there a general anime crossover prompt that can be used to try out a plot bunny that's chewing on anon's brain?

Favourite comments?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-13 06:26 am (UTC)(link)
On a hopefully lighter note: Fillers, what comments have you gotten on fills here that you really liked? The ones that made you go 'yay, someone gets it!', or that made you laugh, or that gave you good ideas, or that were just really complimentary and made you feel more confident as a writer?

My favourite comment ever was on a fic with Polamd as the main character - an anon who liked it finished with a side question in Polish. I didn't answer, because I don't speak a word of Polish. But I was deeply flattered that they found my setting so convincing they'd assumed I did. I felt like my research had really paid off. So, mysterious Polish anon, if you're still out there, thank you!

Silly author anon is silly

(Anonymous) 2011-02-13 03:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I seem to have lost a link to my own fill. It was called Volcano and it was with Norway and Iceland with Norway comforting Iceland. Does anyone have the link?

Hetalia_Pen no longer tracking IPs

(Anonymous) 2011-02-13 06:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Since it was discussed above, but I want to be sure anons see this - Hetalia_Pen has turned off IP tracking, so anons who are concerned about privacy can now post there safely.

Hetalia + Zombies fills

(Anonymous) 2011-02-13 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
So I just read this awesome fill about America & Canada getting assaulted by zombies http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/19013.html?thread=68774725#t68774725

And I'm in the mood for MOAR. Do you know if there's another fill in the kink meme about hetalians dealing with zombies? If not, any post-apocalyptic universe will do.

Thanks in advance!

Lost my own fill, orz

(Anonymous) 2011-02-14 11:21 am (UTC)(link)
/twirls hair innocently

So yeah, I'm terrible and I know it. It was USUK, humour, and the plotline was that England's magic needed recharging and so he kept sneezing and turning things into other things etc. It's to recent for the comms to have it, I think...

Prussia/Italy fluff

(Anonymous) 2011-02-14 06:20 pm (UTC)(link)
So, apparently requests for recs still go here for the time being? Apologies if not.

Like the title says, I'd just really like to read some Prutalia fluffiness.

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 12:11 am (UTC)(link)
This anon just came back to the meme today and is really confused.

it is not for general Hetalia/fic discussion, a social post, or writing help.

So does this mean ABSOLUTELY NO DISCUSSION OF THIS TYPE AT ALL, or can we still ask these questions as long as we specify that it's in relation to a fill we're currently writing? Because I thought the discussion thread (along with the beta thread) was partly to help us with our fills, so I don't understand why we're no longer allowed to talk about the writing aspect of the meme anymore. I didn't know people were just making general chitchat in those topics.

About Length

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
I'm thinking about doing a very long fill, but after reading the comments on the last discussion post, it seems many anons don't like reading very long fills (because of the time commitment). So before I start on it, I'm asking, what is maximum amount of words are you willing to read for a fill on the meme? In terms of comment boxes, there are about 700 words/comment box.

Vietnam Human Name?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
I'm writing an AU with her and was wondering, is there a commonly used human name for Vietnam? If not, what would you lovely anons suggest as one?

Japan > England recs

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Anons, I'm craving for some unrequited love. Do any of you know any "Japan love England but England loves someone else" story?

Thank you!

Ah! One more thing! Does anybody have a link to the "England fucks France's hair" fill?

Photography during sex prompts?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
I'm looking for prompts pertaining to photography/videotaping during sex, preferably any/any. Do you know of any?

7 Seeds Request?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
Maybe I'm crazy, but was there a request for a 7 Seeds-like fic? If so, link please? :D

Alternative places?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 07:34 am (UTC)(link)
What other places to post fic can you recommend fellow anons? fanfiction.net isn't much fun, little opportunity for answering reviewers among other things.

An ... Ethical Dilemma

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 05:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Say hypothetically that an anon made a request. This request was filled but the OP didn't like it and so didn't comment, hoping that the aa would just think that OP had abandoned the request.

Then, the request is filled again and OP loves the second fill. But ... should OP comment? If OP does, should OP comment on the first fill as well, or risk looking like a douchebag?

Hypothetically, of course.

Anon, Come Back~

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 05:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Lovely!anon who offered to fill my request here: http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/19013.html?thread=66629445#t66629445

Hopefully OP hasn't scared you off by her late answer to your question? OP just fails at wrestling the computer from her brothers T.T

Prussia/any requests?

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 05:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Even better if it was Prussia/any het ;)

Filler Anon come baaack!

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 06:20 pm (UTC)(link)
You said you wouldn't mind writing more. Are you going to? http://hetalia-kink.livejournal.com/19013.html?thread=66661701#t66661701

An Etiquette Question

(Anonymous) 2011-02-15 11:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Mods, feel free to delete, I don't know how on-topic this is.

Alright, so suppose you saw a request you REALLY liked and wanted to fill, and there was an abandoned fill under that with just the beginning. All is well and good...until you realize that the person has either begun it the "only way" (i.e. pretty much the general beginning any fic with that prompt would have) or a thousand times better than you could.

Would it be considered rude to fill from where they left off, saying straight up that you're not the original A!Anon, you're just picking up the fic? Especially if it had been abandoned for a very long time. Is that plagiarism, or just running with an old idea?

Posting a really long oneshot and. . .

(Anonymous) 2011-02-16 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
(Feel free to delete this if it doesn't follow the rules. XD)

So, I saw all the other discussions regarding the length of fills, and now I'm kind of worried about something I'm working on.

It's a oneshot made up of several mini-oneshots, but they all need to be together to make sense. (I'm worried that if I separated the snippets, the fill would seem complete or something. Maybe I could mention that it's not? *fail*) Right now, the length of the soon-to-be-posted fill saved to my computer would be around twenty comment boxes (really, it's only around 10,000 words; it's just the character limits on the comment boxes that makes the length seem much longer =P).

I don't know, I feel like splitting it up would seem like I'm trying hard to get comments or something, with the fill already technically done on my computer. I just don't want to scare people off with so much words, so little time. XD

Should I post it all together, even if it's daunting for readers, or should I post it several pieces at a time (with the author's note saying that it's not complete yet), a day's length in-between?

Fusions and unfinished canon

(Anonymous) 2011-02-16 07:19 am (UTC)(link)
I'm really tempted to fill a fusion fic request (Hetalia characters and a different world). As in, "have a plot already" and "am really excited about it" tempted. The only problem is that the not-Hetalia canon series isn't finished and it might joss what I have planned.

But if I wait, it'll probably never get written. *is easily distractable >>;*

So anons, if you were reading a fusion fic that started before the fusion part was finished, would you be bothered if some details about the fusion world end up different from canon? And/or should I go ahead anyway?
