So... I'm immensely lazy. Which is why I have lots of ideas but very few stories.
I'm honored if you even bother to read my work, it's just a fangirl's overactive imagination going nuts on history/literary nerdage and Owl City, which I adore.
8/9/11: So much for actually keeping a promise this time. Anyways, Japan was amazing. So amazing that I didn't really write much. But then we took 3 days by the ocean that I've seen a million times and hate with the passion of a million burning suns, so I sat inside and wrote the whole time. This summer I wrote significantly on "Outer Limits", the newly-titled Alligator Sky songfic. The originally planned portion will be posted soon, and the stuff I planned further will follow at an undecided time as a second half in a two-shot. The first half may satisfy your needs as a complete one-shot. "Rio Pato" has been plotted, but it's difficult to get myself writing it... however! That idea will never die, so it must be written someday. "The Way it Goes" is partly written but nowhere near complete.
Name: Kaori (not my real name - that's classified information~!)
Pseudonym: METRO SKiiES
Location: United States of Alfred F. Jones - Washington (Please guess the correct one. Please.)
Interests: English, Japanese, foreign language, manga/anime, history. Guess that makes Hetalia a perfect fit for me! I enjoy editing; am madly in love with grammar, word choice, and continuity; and dabble in writing.
The American Tradition
Characters/Pairings: America, Canada, Washington, Washington DC, many OC states! No pairing.
Official Summary: The United States of America gather to give thanks for friends and family. Unfortunately, not everyone feels like they're on top of the cornucopia today. Poor Washington just can't catch a sunbreak! ... "Good grief!"

Characters/Pairings: fem!USxUK, Japan, Prussiaxfem!Canada, blink-and-miss-it Germanyxfem!Italy, appearances from Switzerland, Lithuania, mentions of China, S. Korea. Seriously, that's everyone, even if their names don't make it in the story.

Status: Original half nearly complete, expected before the month is out. Sequel-half TBA.
Previews: AU. A not-songfic to Owl City's "Air Traffic". Includes airport security, forensics, photography, reflection, and an unfulfilled dream. The plot is a literal interpretation of the song, so have a listen! "The bird is here and we are off to wherever those wings take us..."

Previews: Don Quixote and a rainy day...
Just the Way it Goes
Previews: Gakuen AU. Antonio is getting the feeling that the new girl doesn't like him very much, but that's not enough to stop him from falling in love with her. Songfic to Owl City's "Deer in the Headlights". "Met a girl in the parking lot and all I did was say hello; her pepper spray made it rather hard for me to walk her home."
Status: In Progress
In the Future:
If You Give a Prussian a Pancake
Characters/Pairings: PruxCan (haven't decided on genderbend or relationship status), possible further mentions/appearances
Previews: AU. Parody of the children's book If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff (companion to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Moose a Muffin). If you give a Prussian a pancake... he'll want syrup to go with it. So you'll give him some of your best maple syrup...
Characters/Pairings: PruHun, past AusHun.
Previews: AU. A not-songfic inspired by Owl City's "Plant Life". (Like I need another one.) Gilbert vanished the day after Elizaveta's wedding. Now, four years and a divorce later, the shadow of the once-vibrant Elizaveta is ready to go looking for him, if she can find the courage to leave his decaying house and step into the woods...
Characters: Too many to list easily... I'll get to it someday. Several genderbenders.
Pairings: USxfem!UK, Spainxfem!Romano, Germanyxfem!Italy, Prussiaxfem!Canada, a dash of AustriaxHungary... that covers the big ones, I think.
Previews: AU. A classic Western tale of heroes and villains, when, unknowingly tangled in the deeply mangled histories of the sleepy and often mysterious townspeople, one John Wayne-esque cowboy will risk everything to bring justice to a small frontier town, only to find that there is a little more to his world than the right and wrong he thought he knew.
Status: Plotted. Writing still optional.
