Clearing some things up (another ''please read'')

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 6, 2012, 12:02 PM
I've been very busy lately, hence not being on too much. However, a couple of days ago, someone noted me (I will keep this all anonymous, as I have already dealt with the situation) asking for me to write them a GermanyXPrussia lemon.

First off, I do not write slash of any kind; yaoi, yuri, etc. I don't read or go look for it specifically, either. I will tolerate those who like pairing up same-sex characters with one another, but I'm not into it myself at all--and I am not a homophobic or a hater. I have a cousin who is gay, and I love him to death and am very proud of him for finding an amazing boyfriend. So don't call me out for discriminating.

Secondly, I do not write smut anymore, especially for reader inserts. After the lemon scandal, I realized, "You know...this stuff really is a waste of time, and gets repetitive after awhile." I only read lemons from people I watch, because I know they won't disappoint and can actually write with proper grammar, spelling, and a well-thought-out plot. The whole idea of inserting yourself into a sex story just was...immature to me after I thought things through. And trust me, I thought a lot of things through.

Thirdly...if you message me with (and this is the exact wording that was in the note) "ok so u write smut rite well right me germannyxpurssia k cuz i need sum" I am not going to write you anything. You do not know how to ask politely, nor do you know the basics of spelling and grammar. I have already taken care of this (though the person was continuing to be rude after I explained why I would not write such a thing), but I just want to get this up so I can hopefully avoid having this happen again. I don't take requests unless you're a close friend or have done something for me that I found very kind, and I'd much rather be offered points if you would like me to write something for you, rather than spelling that would make even a kindergartener wince.

While I may not be into Hetalia as much as I was, I take offense in that fact they spelled "Prussia" and "Germany" so horribly wrong. I cringed. It literally hurt. I've already explained why I am not much of a Hetalia fan anymore, and this just proves my point: a large percentage of the fandom have become, to be frank, idiotic and annoying. And, as I have stated before, I'm sad to admit I was once being sucked into that percentage before I realized I needed to change. The only fanfiction I read nowadays are by those I watch (since, like I already mentioned, I trust them to write properly and not butcher characters' personalities or the English language--I am very picky with those whom I watch when literature is concerned) and as you can see, I only write fanfiction when I feel like it.

A related topic to this is what I favorite and comment on. Honestly, I rarely comment on things nowadays, and what I favorite are normally poetry and fanart rather than fanfiction since most of the fanfiction is complete and utter shit, to be blunt. If you would like me to read something of yours and critique it, you may ask me to do so if you wish. Politely. I will give my honest opinion, which will include what you did well and what you need to improve on, but I will never flame or be rude. If you don't like what I have to say about your writing, well...don't complain to me, because you did ask for my opinion, and I did warn you that I was going to be honest.

That's all for now. Sorry for a long journal--I just wanted to clear some things up. And I'm not mad about the little troll (that's what I think they were), I'm actually more annoyed at the audacity they had to be so rude and mannerless to me in their notes.

Even if you're not into Hetalia anymore, I actually do respect your decision. After-all, I must agree that the fandom has gone quite chaotic. By this, I mean there seems to be only ravaging fan-girls and OOC stories. But, still, I like searching a good story and I've found plenty. However, I do wish that the Hetaila fandom wasn't so full of yuri and yaoi, considering the fandom is already over-flooded with it. There are times when I want to write a story about Hetalia, but I don't think my grammar could be perfected or have the continuous motivation. Either way, I do apologize that I did ask of you to make a sequel to "World is Ours" long ago. I didn't think of the possibility of my rudeness, I felt guilty afterwards too. But, I was too embarrassed to apologize after a long period of time.

I also want to apologize that I haven't read any of your original writing. I'll be sure to do so after I comment.

Without any further adieu, thanks for reading my comment.

Kudos! Peace out! XD

Ugh, ever since like, the beginning, this fandom felt a little off (not in the good way). It's so terrible right now, I don't think I can ever really feel the same way about it, the fandom has ruined Hetalia for me so much. It went from a funny anime to a crazy fangirl smut loving fandom. I just... it's not even... ugh. Sorry. Can't express my feelings towards this fandom or think correctly at the moment.

MY EYES! THAT HORRIBLE GRAMMAR AND SPELLING OF THAT TROLL!!
Ahem...onto more serious stuff.
I respect your decision to quit fanfiction, and concerning this journal, leaving Hetalia. And smut. Like you, I tolerate slash of any kind but I'm not that into it. I'm also not a hater or a homophobic - one of my best friends has lesbian parents and I still come over to her house every day. I saw that one sentence and trust me, it was REVOLTING! Not mentally, but physically, as well. I just can't believe the fuckery of people and fandoms these days, especially Hetalia. I got into it because of how they stereotyped the personifications and the theme of it, but seeing this has made me reconsider and take a little step backwards and towards Naruto.

I do still love the characters, but incest isn't my steaming cup of Earl Grey tea. Especially smut. Now, I'm not saying that it deserves to be banned! If people do somehow like it, fine by me. But I'm not attracted to it.

AND DAT PIKACHU! :iconlikeasirplz:

Holy bilgestipe. Seriously. What the Hell. :|

I just can't even process this abomination before my eyes. It hurts. It fucking hurts. Who the Hell could even dare think they have a right to even send you something like that, or use spelling like that? My respect for you has gone off the charts for this now, because I'm just so relieved you gave them a talking to, freaking idiot that they are.
Ugh... I personally strongly dislike yaoi because it makes me uncomfortable. But I'm certainly not a homophobe - I have nothing against homosexuals at all in real life. Sure, if someone likes to pair off two characters, then by all means they can go ahead, but it's when these 'fans' become idiots that things start getting irritating.
This is not what Hetalia was meant to be. And when incest (particularly when GermanCest is brought into play. I love those Germans but pairing them off revolts me) is taken into account it's just even worse. Seriously, people. Rethink this pairing. Please.

I don't even know how much respect I hold for the fandom and human race now after reading that note. My eyes stung to read that. I didn't even think it were possible to be that stupid. But meh. Guess you learn something new everyday. :/ I'm just glad I'm already lectured my ten year old brother on the correct spelling of 'Prussia'. XD

The Hetalia fandom has always been really bad. I think the fandom has gotten worse. Luckily I have friends who are the sane ones and my best friend is into Hetalia. But we like it for it's silly outlook on History and we like to imagine the countries in other historical situations that Himayura hasn't touched on.

And while I LIKE yaoi...I don't like it for Hetalia. All of the characters are bros. Nothing more. Nothing else.

But that grammar ;A;. THAT GRAMMAR. *sobs* I hate the internet....

I'm going to agree with everyone else and juts say how fucking cute that journal skin is. FUCKING CUTE. :3

You have just earned a huge amount of respect from me for posting this, first off.

Secondly, I am so sorry you had to read that Note....It burns my eyes to look at it. My seven year old brother knows how to spell Germany, he has trouble with Prussia, usually dropping the 'i' from it, but still. I have no faith in the pubic school system...

I agree that much of the fanbase has turned quite bad, I am lucky enough to be friends with quite a few Hetalia fans who are good people, to be honest, they are what have kept me interested in Hetalia.

I read a good deal of Hetalia fan-fiction, mostly because there is more of that on here than of any other type of fan-fiction, most of the other fan-fictions I read are on Fanfiction.net or Lunaescence. (I adore Lunaescence, they will not let a story through if the spelling or grammar is incorrect.) I do in fact enjoy reading a good yaoi story, but it has to be GOOD.

Same with me. My closest friends on the Internet are some of the salvagable Hetalia fans, but we never talk about it anymore since I'm barely into it now.

I just wish people took things more seriously.

While I'm not a big fan, I appreciate Hetalia for the absolute ridiculous perspective it takes on history. It makes me laugh.
As I haven't been a big fan of it, I never knew the fandom for it was so bad. Needless to say, that person was very wrong for being rude to you. You also have boundaries, and I think those should be respected.

On a side note, I genuinely don't understand why people don't take the time to type with proper grammar and spelling. I mean...I understand not using big words and the occasional mistake, but consistent type speak bugs me to no end e___o Or is it just me that finds that annoying?

I absolutely adored Hetalia for the insane way they incorporated history. I started to get really fed up with the fact that most people focus on the inane romantic relationships they can create in it, rather than focusing on the historical and human aspects. Which is why I'm pissed at myself for writing so many pointless reader inserts.

Trust me, you're not the only one who finds it annoying. It literally makes me twitch.

I'm really not going to sugar coat it I love the yaoi side of the fandom, but when you have a ship that the to have no real reason to even consider each other as a partner there is no real point. I like to read lemons once in a while but I always read the ones my watchers put to see there growth in writing, lately all the lemons I have read have the same level of 50 Shades of Grey, and I can't take it anymore. I can't leave the Hetalia Fandom because it has given me so many new friends and I'm grateful for that, I never leave a fandom that has gotten me friends, ever. I'm glad you aren't afraid to post your opinions, you are very brave for doing so one the internet.

I don't like to start wars but if you ever disrespect a character, movie, book, person, etc. that I respect, you will get a lecture of me insulting you, explaining how you've insulted someones work, and insulted my intelligence.

Sorry for this long comment but I had to say something.

The audacity pf some people !

Writing literature is an art, like manners.
Modern illusions have abolished what was once divine.
The increasing stupidity is ostentatious, like a flaming banner.
Now I read stories that assure me, I'm completely wasting my time.

Has laziness struck so,
That one can not take time to appreciate proper grammar?
Where are those fan fictions, that not so long ago,
Held my attention, in rapture ?

I am no homophobe,
But I agree, it is vile,
The nauseating epidemic of such stories across the globe,
To me, an incomprehendable trend, style.

Where has the joy that I once received from reader inserts gone ?
Has illiteracy from when English was new, struck again ?
Now that sex stories have come along,
They leave me in horror, and in an inexplicable pain.

We should be improving our stories, and use of language,
But not so, has been the sad case.
Stupidity and audacity have left me in rage,
Continuation in this path, have progressed in alarming rates.

I'm sorry for expressing my views in a poem, it kind of started of with the first two lines rhyming, and I got a bit carried away....

I agree with the thing you said and the fan bases is pretty bad . I am a hetalia fan although I am a quite one in real life . Only one or two of my friends know that I love hetalia not even my sisters . I am not into hetalia for the yaoi or yuri I like the history aspect of it ( I am a huge greek). although I am a avid fan fic reader trying to write fan fic .

I am a big Hetalia fan. But not because of the yaoi, although I do like that aspect of the show as long as people are respectful and mature about it. I love Hetalia because it inspires me to learn things I never would have known about our world.

And to that person who sent to that message. Please. Just... rethink your life.
