Fun fact about Russian language - it has 3 genders: masculine, feminine and neuter. And it just so happens that most country names (especially the European ones) are feminine! In fact, out of the 8 “main characters” of Hetalia the only one with a masculine name is China (Китай)
so when i watched Hetalia with Russian subs i couldn’t stop imagining China as a harem anime protagonist %D
((So I was doing my IB History project which is basically an essay on foreign relations (and I got assigned Italy and Germany) and so I found this wikipedia article and I thought oh it might be helpful so I looked:
Ludwig would be pleasantly surprised and would immediately offer his help if they needed. He would give them tips on pronunciation and spelling if they need. Overall, he would be incredibly pleased that his significant other wants to learn his language and study it. He would probably give them mini tests every once in a while and have them carry on a conversation with him in German.
N. Italy / Feliciano Vargas
Feliciano would be absolutely thrilled to find out that his significant other wanted to learn his language and study it. He would offer his help whether they asked for it or not and would be giving them pointers on the basics of it. He would help them learn by only speaking Italian around them and being incredibly encouraging.
Japan / Honda Kiku
Kiku would be a little shocked to find out they were interested in his language. He would be overjoyed at the fact, but he would also hope that he didn’t ruin any surprise they might have had for him. He would offer help if they asked, but wouldn’t force them to let him help.
Prussia / Gilbert Beilschmidt
Gilbert would be a little overexcited about it. He would offer them countless tips and would give them as much help as he thought they would need. He would speak more German than usual around them to help them out with their learning. Gil would be a great coach/teacher when it comes to helping his significant other learn his language.
I have this headcanon that aph italy is actually the hardest nation to control. I don’t think he’s the type to disobey his bosses directly though (he’s a ditz not an idiot), he’s more subtle. For example, being really bad at fighting. According to turkey, feli was quite the warrior back in the day but somehow he ended up chilling in a tomato crate in the middle of an invasion and making nerf guns? The way I imagine it going down is basically his bosses ordering him to go fight and feli going “haha yeah you can order me here but you can’t order me to be any good at this check and mate, suckers”. I also headcanon that he disappears a lot. That’s actually his primary form of rebellion. Doesn’t like an order? He’s not gonna be in his room tomorrow morning. Doesn’t like a boss? Drop off the face of the earth while everyone’s at the welcome party. Forced to do something distasteful? I’ll be going on a retreat and focusing on health for the next decade don’t call me.
Feli doesn’t feel the least bit bad about doing any of this either. He apologizes to his brother or the other nations if his disappearances affected them, but he’s never apologized to any of his bosses. The guy’s a free spirit with a good sense of self awareness, distinct opinions, and an aversion to war and violence who keeps being dragged into war so he’s very aware that he’s some weird government pet/mascot/slave and he is not happy abt it. His logic is that if his governments are gonna keep him to use as a puppet for the rest of his life then he might as well make them work for it and maybe get a laugh out of it himself. He won’t say any of that out loud ofc, he’ll just smile and say he forgot to keep track of time and are u sure he was gone for 3 months? really? he meant to be gone for five…
N. Italy: slightly above average extra. increases when doing his infamous seizure dance 6/10 2p N. Italy: very extra, somebody stop him 8/10

S. Italy: smidge more extra than his lil bro 7/10 2p S. Italy: the Queen of Extra himself. the ruler of the extraworld. You will not find another quite as extra as this one 11/10
Prussia: *puts on sunglasses* brace yaself for extra 10/10 2p Prussia: a good Soft Boy™, extra rating nonexistent 0/10
America: tone it down a bit alfred 8/10 2p America: a tame boy, only extra around crushes or his friends 3/10 edit: i have seen the error of my ways: vegans are always so fukin extra and 2p america constantly acts like he’s had 15 red bulls 8/10
France: calm your shit francis 10/10 2p France: haha nope not this lazy fucker 0/10
England: he’s got the magic thing going on which is kinda extra tbh 6/10 2p England: a soft boy, very extra sometimes 7/10
China: this senile old man,,,, so extra 9/10 2p China: 4000 years and still hoeing 9/10
Russia: kinda extra with the whole “i’m going to kill you but with a pipe” like lmfao just use a gun or something 5/10 2p Russia: cease this tomfoolery at once 0/10
Ludwig would be the perfect roommate. He would be neat, organized, and easy to get along with for the most part. Of course, he would have a chore chart so he and his roommate equally take care of their shared living space. He would also have the cooking split between the two unless his roommate couldn’t cook. He would be the perfect roommate to have, a little strict but only when necessary.
N. Italy / Feliciano Vargas
Feliciano would be very laidback. He would take care of all the cleaning and cooking, but in his own time so he may not get to it straight away. He does think his roommate should clean up the messes they make and such. He would also think they should spend some time together to become more friendly with each other so he would plan activities for them to do together. He would be a very nice roommate to have.
Japan / Honda Kiku
Kiku would be a quiet, reserved roommate. He would only interact with his roommate when necessary. Of course, he would eat meals with them and he may watch television with them occasionally, but he wouldn’t make plans with them or anything like that. He would clean up after himself and do his best to make sure the home he shares is nice and presentable in a way. He’s a very polite roommate, though he is a little standoffish.
Prussia / Gilbert Beilschmidt
Gilbert would be a loud and somewhat messy roommate, but still tolerable to live with. He would often invite his own friends over which may or may not annoy his roommate depending on the type of person they are. He also cleans up after himself for the most part, but he’s still a little messy. He would still do his chores and he may cook from time to time if he felt like it. He would be a tolerable roommate, but he can be a bit of a bother from time to time.
S. Italy / Lovino Vargas
Lovino would be a lazy roommate. He would much rather nap than do the chores his roommate would ask him to do. He would do anything to get out of doing them, honestly. On his good days, however, he might clean up a bit and cook, too. If he feels like it. He’s not incredibly intolerable, though, since he does have his good days.
How hard is it to make the Hetalia Characters cry?
America: Depends. He’s pretty tough so he could be in a lot of pain but would be fine. But sad stories like a puppy with cancer or abandoned animals will make him cry like a baby.
Canada: He’s an emotional crier. He’ll cry when he’s really happy, sad or mad. He will even cry when he’s really embarrassed!
England: He doesn’t cry much. He especially won’t cry in public unless he’s really drunk. He cries when thinking of his colonies leaving him and also when reading books. (He cried for hours when Hedwig was killed.)
France: He will cry for added dramatics. But it’s hard to make him really cry! He mostly cries when Englands insults step over the line.
Russia: Barely ever cries! Only cries when a tragedy happens or when he drinks way to much vodka and feels lonely.
N. Italy: If you just look at him wrong he’ll cry. He cries about everything and is an emotional crier like Canada but 10x worse.
Germany: Doesn’t cry unless he’s under the perfect combination of stress and lack of sleep. Will cry during movies if the dog dies though.
Japan: Not really a crier unless his favorite character gets killed off in a show/movie/book.
S. Italy: Emotional crier like his brother but more when he’s scared or frustrated. He also cries when he gets really really angry to his mortification.
Spain: Really doesn’t cry. Will tear up a bit when depressed or something bad happens but he’s the type to try and find the positive in the situation and go from there.
It’s “German Unity Day”!! That means Germany technically has it’s birthday today! Well at least Hetalia Germany has it am I right? And this time I didn’t almost forget his BDay like last year! (see here) I even picked up some things from this post where I was asked if I was German. So enjoy this lil inky comic as he will enjoy his party HAHAHA. ୧ʕ•̀ᴥ•́ʔ୨
