A/N: EngIta AU I’ve had rattling around in my head for what feels like years but only just now got out into words. It was inspired by this old text post, and originally was an EngIta AU me and my friend discussed, but she decided to use the concept for Osomatsu-san fic and I kept it for Hetalia fic. It’s been a while since I posted anything EngIta, so I hope this is alright!
Feliciano was unloading the books he’d brought
from the new little shop a few blocks down the street- some recipe books, some
poetry, some art, and absolutely none with actual plot-based content.
Which is why he was very surprised to find an
old, hardcover book amid his shiny new paperbacks, and he blinked. He found a
post-it note on the front cover that said, “Freebie for your first purchase
here.” He hadn’t realized until just now why the friendly old man at the shop
had winked at him- ah! It must have been because he slipped him a free book!
The brown spine was old and cracked, but on it
was written in old bronze lettering: The Book of Fictives, Vol. 314.
