Keith Haring painting a mural on The Berlin Wall. October 23, 1986. Photos by Tseng Kwong Chi.

Keith Haring had been invited by the Director of the Checkpoint Charlie Museum to paint the mural. He began shortly after 10 A.M., Since the first six feet of land on the Western side belong to the East, he was not just defacing property of the East German Government, he was entering that country without a visa. A West Berlin policeman used a megaphone to warn him of the fact. But Haring continued, sporadically leaping back onto Western soil when East German border guards looked as if they were about to arrest him.

After 90 minutes, he had completed a third of his mural. He painted an interlocking chain of red and black human forms on a bright yellow background. The colors were those of the East and West German flags.

The artist gave interviews to West German television and radio reporters as he worked and signed autographs. “It’s a humanistic gesture, more than anything else,” said Haring, who called his work “a political and subversive act - an attempt to psychologically destroy the wall by painting it.’‘Asked whether the event was merely a publicity stunt to draw attention to himself, he said, ’'The main objective here is that it is not an insignificant act that goes unnoticed. The entire world should know that it happened, reinforcing its political significance.”

Haring completed the mural shortly after 4 P.M., He denied that it was aimed specifically against East Germany. “It’s for people and it doesn’t matter which side of the wall they’re on. It’s about both sides coming together.”

By the next day, however, someone painted large sections of the mural grey and quickly, other artists painted graffiti on the hundred-metre section that Haring had used. Within months there was very little left to see.

anonymous asked:

Sorry if you've answered something like this before, but do you have any recommendations for stim toys that are on the subtle side and can preferably be kept on the person?

It’s fine! You can always check my ask tag to see what’s been answered, but I understand if you’re not able to flip through five pages of asks (and tags are harder to access for mobile users, although I keep the tags pages linked in my user description to make it easier). You might like to look through this previous ask for ideas, as it discusses lanyard-clipable stim toys! In addition, if you’re in a classroom or desk office setting, some of the stationery items mentioned in this ask might be workable as stealth toys.

I’m not sure what kind of toy you might be after (chewable, fidget, etc) so I’ll list everything I know of that’s both on-the-person portable and subtle/stealth. Jewellery is like to be your best option. This is a little harder for people like me who prefer not to present in ways socially-coded as feminine, but, thankfully, most of these things don’t have strong associations with a binary gender.

Stimtastic really does have some of the best offerings for teenagers and adults after subtle/stealth stim jewellery.

Fidget jewellery that’s perfectly stealth: Roller Ball Bike Chain Bracelet | Extra Wide Bike Chain Bracelet | Spinner Rings (link to category, in various colours and designs) | Double Circle Earrings | Concentric Circles Necklace | Scented Vial Necklace (I have the cinnamon one and I love it - it’s small enough to be unobtrusive/merely decorative and it smells divine) | Snake Twist Necklace (a subtle Tangle alternative) | Mobius Flower Earrings (I took these off the earring backings and turned them into necklace pendants strung on a leather cord - gender neutral and nobody knows it’s stim jewellery) | Heavy Bike Chain Bracelet | Interlocking Bike Chain Bracelet | Light Bike Chain Bracelet | Wrist Coil Bracelets (like wearing a hair tie on your wrist - unremarkable) | Zipper Bracelets.

Fidget toys that can be attached to a bag or belt loop: Rolling Bead Lanyard | Large Bead Ring | Squishy Panda Charm | Jumbo Bead Ring.

(Note: how stealth these ones are depends somewhat on how eclectic you are in presentation. I can attach a bead ring or a squishy to a belt loop and have no one remark on it, but I’m the kind of person psychologists politely call “quirky”.)

Fidget toys that can fit into a pocket and hide in your hand/palm when someone comes over to your desk: Spiky Animal Fidget | Boinks Fidget | Mini Prickle/Hedge Balls.

(Note: I’ve found the animal prickle fidget toys in multipacks in the party sections of dollar shops and Toys R Us, $4-$4.50 AUD. I’ve also found the mini prickle balls in multipacks in the party sections of dollar shops and Big W, $3-$5 AUD.)

Chewables that are closer to stealth: Chewable Dulcimer Necklace | Chewable Trapezoid Necklace | Chewable Doughnut Necklace. (These are the smaller or plainer chewable pendants, and I assure you, I’ve seen folks wearing non-silicone versions of these. I’ve also walked around various cities, stores and markets wearing the Braid Pendant and nobody has once thought anything of it if they don’t see it in my mouth. Oversized jewellery, especially for femme-leaning folks, is pretty fashionable.)

DIYs: If you want to make your own roller bead lanyards, here’s the tutorial. If you want to make your own bead rings and make them even more stealth, here’s my tutorial on making bead ring necklaces. Nobody has ever treated these as anything more than funky necklaces, and I wear these everywhere, every day.

@caseydickdanger​, if you’re located in the US, makes some seriously unique handcrafted pieces. Most things have textures if you’re just after a necklace pendant to touch and handle. The really stimmy in-stock items include the Nautical Bottle Necklace, Mocha Tubez Bracelet and the Mermaid Sand Tubez Bracelet.

@spacerobotstudio has a phenomenal selection of funky, unique fidget necklaces: Spirit Level Necklace in Red | Spinner Pendant Necklace in Copper and Teal | Bronze Double-Sided Compass Necklace | Pink and Blue Saturn Spinner Necklace (oh, god, want) | Dots and Brown Spinner Pendant Necklace | Blue Glitter Globe Necklace.

Banggood or ebay also sell tiny squishies. Mochi squishies are perfect for holding and hiding in one’s hand (links to many individual ones in this post) but most of the cheap squishy assortments include smaller bun and cake squishies as well (and these have strap attachments for adding to bags).

(If you’re after more bag or lanyard-attachment fidget toys, here’s the ultimate post on where to find edamame poppers!)

Etsy has a wealth of spinner rings. There’s a wide variety running from affordable to bespoke.

You can also find the wrist coil/telephone cord bracelets in cheap multipacks in every dollar store - look in the hair accessory section. Also available on ebay! If you’re not the kind of person who wears bracelets, I’ve seen them as lanyard clips in many dollar shops (link to listing on Banggood).

Chubuddy and Amazon also have chewable telephone cord bracelets, if you want something unremarkable that’s chewable and a fidget.

Chewigem has several silicone raindrop pendant chewables that look just like oversized funky pendants.

In short, there’s a lot of options, especially jewellery-wise. However, most of these sellers are based in the US, so if you’re an international stimmer, be prepared for international shipping rates and conversion fees. While there are therapy-focused stim toy stores internationally, most of them don’t offer a lot in the way of subtlety!

Good luck. If this doesn’t help you enough, please let me know. If there’s something I should have included and didn’t, please also let me know!

Once Upon a December (soft relaunch)

A frown creased the girl’s brow as she ran her hand up his neck and into his black curls. Softly, familiarly she stroked and twirled them through her slim fingers. Slowly a mischievous smirk touched her lips, an old expression for an old tactile feeling of comfort. Tilting her head she slowly slid her hands down to his pale cheeks and softly lifted the man’s bowed head. Their eyes locked and through them there was a flashpoint of recognition of a past life, of this life, and a thousand others through the bending and binding of millions of other universes.

He looked up at her and a single tear fell, a single tear for a dead father, for a dead rabble, and a dead boy that he knew she’d never find. But she only bit her lip and examined the face anyway. He let her silky palms feel the smoothness and the scratch of his cheeks. She framed his face, a digit running down the scar she had given him. Her eyes narrowed in a glare of one that was looking for the picture through the visual illusion. She slanted his eyes, pulled his cheeks, and rubbed his ears, observing him as a painter or sculptor would a piece of art trapped inside unmolded clay. From afar the hooded man glared in confusion and the droid whistled.

After a long moment she dipped her head toward him. Quickly the black haired man moved his away from her in self-revulsion. But she caught his face and shook her head in a reassurance of his sudden protest of a reward he did not earn, and never will. Tears fell from his eyes at the way she looked in the sunset. It was her grace, the forgiveness that he had no right to be given. She leaned forward again and this time he let their lips touch. Her hand cupped his cheek as she pressed down on him. There was no fire, and there was no electricity of passion. There was only a feeling of righteousness, of puzzle pieces coming together and fitting. Their souls, the torment in one another’s mind, and inability to escape, they were all interlocking chains baring them together. They had only become satiated, calmed, and relieved when lips were locked and arms held the waist. When they became a whole, bonded, did they know the cure for their shared madness.

When they broke apart, she left an intuitive signature of a smaller peck on his lips before she lifted her head back up. In that moment in the aftermath of the fire in his mind being dowsed by a bucket of water, he seemed dazed. In the clearness of the sunset and his mind he looked up at the girl and saw only the figure she had always been. She was somewhere between an ethereal goddess and avenging warrior, surrounded in the bright of the light all around her. Then he knew that there was no escaping, no blackness he could surround himself inside that she could not penetrate, could not find him inside.

He loved her.

The girl saw the light in dark eyes and the stricken look on the man’s face as he came to his own awakening. An awakening of a truth she had known since the first time he stepped off the Millennium Falcon all those long years ago.

A wide smile of pure love came over Rey’s lovely face as she spoke in a whisper.

“There you are, Ben.”

Chicken and Beer

Kim Taehyung x Reader

genre; fluff? 

word count; 1,697


It was that time where you’ve decided it was best to live off your night intoxicated and in a full stomach before returning to the pit hole of hell: school. It wasn’t as if you disliked school, it was just the literal fact you created a habitat constructed on course work just waiting to be completed. It was entirely your fault you always leave the last minute to catch up on work, whilst procrastination was getting the best of you; it couldn’t be helped to have one of your closest friend help with the whole process of… devouring chicken and beer.

You call his phone number, to hear the ringing consume the quietness of the room as you retouch your make up, “… Yo, cutie wassup,” His raspy voice then enters through the mic, as you smile, “Tae! You busy?” You ask, applying small amounts of power to your t-zone, “Currently? No, and if I were honest. I really want to get out of the dorm,” He confesses his stretching making it clear he’s probably been in the same position for a while, you gleam at his response, “How about you come over to mine then, have a few beers and chicken,” You then bribe, putting the phone off speaker, to direct it towards your ear. “Hm, sounds tempting,” He laughs, you giggle along with him, “Aw, please? I’m lonely… and I’ll be more than happy to pay on your behalf,” You persuade, his chuckle brings a small tint of red to your cheeks as you bite your lip. “I’ll be on my way then,” He smiles, then hanging up before you had the chance to give him your farewell, sighing you jump towards your bed landing back against the mattress, covering your face you let out a small squeal. Okay, so maybe you had a few lingering romantic feelings for the boy. Can’t be helped, there has always been that unexplained connection between you both. You could sense it. Your hugs always lasted a couple of seconds longer to be classified as ‘just friendly’. Your conversations we’re a little more on the flirty side, and whenever he complimented you, it always brought warmness to your ears. You were certain you had strong fondness towards Taehyung.

Overview of Tank Mobility

Tank mobility can be broken down into three types, tactical mobility, operational mobility and strategic mobility. Tactical mobility is a tanks ability to move about a battlefield. Operational mobility is a tanks ability to move about the Area of Operation. Strategic mobility is the tanks ability to be moved to the AO. Mobility traditionally forms one of the three corners of the tank capability triangle, with the other two corners being armour and firepower. The mobility of tanks is one of the features that has made them so important on the modern battlefield.

Tactical Mobility

Tactical mobility can be broken down into two major categories, agility and obstacle clearance. Agility encompasses a tanks acceleration, deceleration, turning and top speed. Obstacle clearance includes a tanks ability to cross trenches, walls and move over rough terrain. This mobility is provided by a tanks engine and its tracks.

Engine

Tanks are universally powered by internal combustion engines. Almost all tanks from the first combat tank, the Mk. I, through the modern Leopard 2, use diesel piston engines, with most using inline engines. Some tanks have employed radial engines due to their improved power-to-weight ratios and greater reliability. Radials were included on many WWII era American tanks including the M3 Stuart and some models of the M4 Sherman and M3 Lee.

Some modern tanks employ high power turboshaft engines. The M1 Abrams mounts the Honeywell AGT 1500, a multi-fuel turbine engine that produces 1,500 hp. The only other tank to be powered solely by a turbine engine are certain models of the Russian T-80, though some models have been modified to mount a diesel engine to improve fuel consumption rates. Some tanks including the Swedish Stridsvagen have both a piston and a turbine engine, alternating between the two based on the situation at hand.

Tracks

Tanks use continuous or “caterpillar” tracks for propulsion. Continuous tracks allow for improved performance on rough terrain by virtue of their lower ground pressure and higher overall traction. Tracks are made up of a chain of interlocking metal pieces which orbit around the track assembly. Track assemblies are made up of a series of wheels which keep the track running smoothly.

  1. Drive Wheel (rear wheel drive)
    Connects to engine and moves the track.
  2. Track
    Moves across the wheels in a continuous motion.
  3. Rollers
    Keep the track aligned with the drive wheel. Some arrangements forego these entirely, instead allowing the track to droop onto the road wheels. This is known as a slack track arrangement.
  4. Drive Wheel (front wheel drive)
    See #1.
  5. Road Wheels
    These wheels transfer the load to the ground. Road wheels are generally attached to some form of suspension which allows a smoother ride. 
  6. Idler
    This small wheel is used to tension the track to marginalize the chance of the track becoming detatched from the assembly.

Many military tracks use metal links with a rubber shoe, this allows for good traction while preventing damage to both the ground that the tank passes over, and the metal links themselves. The shoes are easily replaceable. Pictured below are two new pads and two old worn pads on an M1A2 tank. 

Operational Mobility

Operational mobility encompasses a tanks ability to cross larger obstacles such as rivers and minefields during movement around the AO. Engineers have invented a variety of ways of dealing with each of these obstacles. 

Rivers

The two main ways that tanks cross rivers without pre-exsisting crossings is by fording or with bridge layers. 

Fording

Fording a river means simply wading across it. The main consideration when fording, is ensuring that the tank does not go so deep as to cut off oxygen to the crew and engines. This problem of keeping engines supplied with oxygen is familiar to submariners and a familiar solution has been employed. While many tanks can only ford rivers that are less than about 1 metre deep in their stock configuration, some tanks, including the Leopard 2, can be fitted with a vehicle snorkel to allow for the crossing of rivers deeper than the vehicle is tall. This technology was pioneered during WWII by both the Axis and the Allies for different reasons. The technology was developed by the allies to optimize tanks for beachhead invasions by allowing them to be offloaded from landing vehicles far from shore, then swim up to the beach. Pictured below are two Sherman tanks fitted with snorkels over their intake and exhaust.

The Nazis developed a similar technology out of necessity. Early in its development, the Tiger tank was found to be simply too heavy to cross most bridges in Europe and so it was almost always forced to ford when a river was encountered. The problem was that, despite the Tigers height, many rivers were simply too deep to allow for effective fording. The solution was to attach a tall tube to the turret and and seal all openings with rubber gaskets. This allowed oxygen into the compartment and prevented water from seeping in.

Many modern snorkels are wide enough to double as escape hatches in the case of a mechanical failure while the tank is submerged.

Bridge Layers

The need for armoured bridge layers became apparent during WWII when blitzkrieg forces needed to move rapidly across terrain including rivers without leaving behind other mechanized units and without concentrating forces on a few available bridges. Modern bridge layers build on this doctrine by allowing efficient operational force deployment in areas with little to no infrastructure. One such vehicle, the American M104 Wolverine, can deploy a 26 metre bridge that can support up to 70 tons in as little as 5 minutes.

Minefields

Minefields, in general, pose less of a threat to modern military vehicles than they once did, however, minefields can still immobilize even the most heavily armoured vehicles and they can still pose a lethal threat to personnel and light equipment. There are two main ways of clearing minefields employed in the modern military, mechanical and explosive.

Mechanical

There are two primary mechanical mine clearing methods, the flail or roller, and the plow. The roller, invented during WWI acts by placing pressure across a large area in an attempt to detonate any mine it passes over. These rollers are largely invulnerable to the explosions and are placed far enough from the vehicle that carries them to keep the vehicle from being damaged. The main disadvantage of a roller is that, on uneven terrain, it may only put pressure on part of the ground, leaving some mines untouched. The solution to this problem was the flail, developed during WWII and still in use today. The mine flail consists of a large rotating drum to which lengths of chain are attached. When the drum is spun the chains whip around impacting the ground evenly and causing mines to detonate.

This method can be very effective, but in order to effectivley clear the area, the flail must move slowly. The mine plow is simply a heavy plow that overturns the earth and pushes mines to the side. This method can clear a path but may leave many mines undetonated.

Explosive

In a combat situation, when mines must be cleared quickly while under fire, the Mine Clearing Line Charge (MCLC) or “Mick-Lick” is often deployed. The MCLC consists of a series of explosives attached to a chord which is, in turn, attached to a rocket. When fired, the rocket travels across the minefield laying the explosives along a path. When the explosives are detonated, any mines along the path are also detonated. This method is fast and effective and has been used since WWII.

Strategic Mobility

Strategic mobility essentially boils down to transporting the tank. On a strategic scale, tanks cannot generally transport themselves. The tread system and low fuel efficiency of their engines mean that long distance travel under their own power is difficult and expensive. Instead, on long journeys, there are a variety of vehicle that allow tanks to be transported by air, land or sea.

Air

While not the most efficient way to travel, tanks can be carried by air. As an example, the American C-5 Galaxy can carry two M1 Tanks while the CH-54 can carry a tank under slung.

The main advantage to this type of transport is its speed and versatility. Helicopters especially can deliver tanks to places where they would not normally be able to go. The biggest disadvantage is the cost. Moving 100 tanks by air is an extremely fuel consumptive operation, and moving hundreds across the Atlantic would be a logistical nightmare.

Sea

Most large scale, long range tank transport is conducted by sea and most sea transport is conducted by Large, Medium Speed Roll-On/Roll-Off ships. These ships allow tanks to be easily loaded and transported on long ocean journeys.

Another key mode of strategic mobility, in use by countries such as Japan, the US and Russia, is the Landing Craft Air Cushioned (LCAC) known colloquially as the hovercraft. These incredible machines allow insertion of tanks, infantry and other fighting vehicles onto about 70% of the worlds beaches, including those that cannot accommodate traditional amphibious landing craft, such as swamps, marshes and soft sand beaches. Their high speed and ability to transport fighting equipment across beaches and not just to them makes these craft essential peaces of equipment for any amphibious invasion force.

Land

While tanks are able to propel themselves over land, most forces prefer to use special tank movers when covering any long distance. An excellent example of this type of vehicle is the Oshkosh M1070 Heavy Equipment Transporter. In production since 1992, this transport can carry up to 80,000 kg and is the main transport used to carry the ground vehicles of the US armed forces. There are 3 and 4 axle versions.

Trucks work well for small numbers of vehicles or in areas with little to no infrastructure. However, in many places, including inside the US, tanks are transported via train. Pictured below is a a train laden with M1A2 Abrams Tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles travelling through downtown Los Angeles last summer. Also pictured is me with my favorite hat and my friends dog that got tired.

Michael’s POV 

___

I watched in aw as she titles her head back in amusement, laughing at a dumb joke Luke told her. From the second I saw her, she gave me butterflies, I knew I had to make her mine. People cowered away, in fear of looking at me the wrong way. Afraid I’ll hurt them but not Y/N, she looked at me like anyone else, she didn’t care about my bad boy reputation or the ink that cluttered my skin, what mattered to her was who I really am not what people see me as. That’s the thing about Y/N she formed who own opinion of others, ignoring the rumors. 

Others see how special she is, they look at her like she’s gold but she never notices. Too caught up in her own little world. Guys would do anything to talk to her, even for a second, asking how her day is going or offering to carry her books. Girls were either envious of the attention she got or wanted to be like her. She was so polite to everyone, treating them all the same. Smiling at freshmen as she walked the halls and making conversation with the nerdy kids. It still baffles me how I managed to get the beautiful girl with the matching soul, kids like me don’t get girls like her, she’s too good for me and I tell her everyday. She would laugh, telling me “baby, I’m not worth the trouble” I never knew what she meant by that, shaking my head I’d tell her “you’re worth every second.” 

The truth is I would do anything for this girl, every punch I threw was worth the sting in my knuckles, all the blood soaked shirts, even the time I dented my truck from pushing a freshman onto it like a rag doll. The freshman deserved it, he thought he could touch her, without her permission and I made sure he knew it wasn’t acceptable to touch a girl without there consent. She was always so concerned about my well being, whilst I was always concerned about hers. I love her, with every fiber of my being but I’ve never told her, in case she doesn’t feel the same. Leaving me heartbroken. Fawning over the girl all the guys want. 

Y/N’s POV

The bell signalling the end of lunch rang. Everyone started packing up there belongings, standing up and heading to there next class. Michael continued to stare off into space, not even the boys clapping there hands in front of his face could snap him out it. “Mikey?” you giggled as you waved your hand in front of his face, a small smirk appeared as he snapped out of it “sorry kitten, I was just thinking” he chuckled, taking your hand. 

“Come on, we have to get to class” you laughed, pulling him in the direction of the school as the boys followed “wait!” he made an abrupt stop, almost pulling you down in the process “why don’t we skip the rest of the day, go take a ride somewhere?” all the boys cheered at this, before quieting down and waiting for your response. You’d never skipped school before but you also didn’t want to disappoint the boys, knowing they would boo at you in a joking manner if you denied “it’ll be fun, I promise” Michael beamed at you as you continued to think. With a sigh you gave them a small nod, cheers erupted the empty field as Luke ran towards the truck, Calum jumped on his back, causing Luke to fall. You couldn’t help but laugh at the boys “get off you goof” Luke whined as they laid there on the warm grass, just as Calum started to get up Ashton decided to join in the fun, yelling dog pile before joining them on the floor. Laughter filled the field as Luke complained about being squished under there heavy bodies.  

You walked to the beaten up truck, fingers laced with Michael’s as the boys pilled into the back, banging on various parts of the body, prompting you both to get a move on. Pulling Michael behind you, you ran to the truck, a smile planted on your face as he chuckled at your excitement. Helping you into the truck before running to his side, all the boys whistled and howled as the engine roared to life. Digging through your bag you found your heart shaped sunglasses, resting them on the bridge of your nose, you turned the volume up as the wind whipped your hair around. 

Michael’s POV

___

Lacing my fingers with Y/N’s, she sang the lyrics of Blink-182, not caring if she’s out of tune with the music. I never noticed how hard life was until I found her, I choose not to think about it because she’s all I need. We all but screamed the lyrics as I drove down the open road, purposely making sharp turns to piss of the boys and make Y/N laugh. Her laugh was music to my ears, I couldn’t imagine life without her. 

Pulling up to an open field the boys piled out of the back as Y/N removed her seat belt. I raised out of my truck, slamming the door as I jogged to her side, helping her out by taking her waist and setting her down on the floor. Earning a giggle and small “thank you” in return. By this time the boys had all ran off, finding a spot so they could roll a cigarette, Y/N didn’t necessarily approve of it but she chose not to say anything. I watched as she ran over to the boys, occasionally looking behind, encouraging me join her. With a small chuckle I jogged to catch up. Picking her up by the waist I spun around as she laughter escaped her soft lips, “put me down” she squealed as I continued to spin, doing as asked I placed a chaste kiss on her lips, taking a seat next to Calum as she sat between my legs. 

Y/N’s POV

All the boys laid around, passing the joint between one another as you continued to make your daisy chain, delicately interlocking the stems to insure you don’t break them. Michael sat up, wrapping his arms around you as he set his head on your shoulders, the smell of smoke filling your nostrils. “What you doing baby?” he asked, eyeing up the chain in your hand “making a daisy chain” you smiled, turning your head towards him, planting a sweet kiss on the corner of his lips.

“Who’s it for?” he cooed placing a kiss on your cheek “well” you trailed off, he clicked on immediately “kitten, you don’t really expect me to wear that do you?” he chuckled as you frowned, your face heating up as you eyed up the crown “it doesn’t matter” you mumbled, dropping the crown. He put his open palm on your cheek, turning you to face him before he began to kiss every inch of your face, smiling as a giggle escaped your lips. When he’d finished his attack, you shifted positions to face him, placing the crown on his head, beaming at how cute your bad boy boyfriend looked in a flower crown. He mirrored your smile as the boys took notice in his new accessory “Mike, what the fuck are you wearing?” Luke laughed, along with Calum and Ashton. A small frown reappeared on your face as you went to remove it, he took your hands, kissing away the sadness, calling at the boys behind him “my girl made it for me, so I’m gonna wear it.” You smiled from ear to ear at your sweet boyfriend, ignoring his hysterical friends.

I actually live for badboy!5sos so yes of course I can. Is this how you fluff?! if you want more badboy!Michael they’re here  here and here I HOpe you enjoyed! and smank you for requesting my lovely smol queen bean! x

Are I real?

One way to understand reality is through perceived interaction, and, in this case, Hetalia provides a few assurances of reality.

If it is taken for fact that in 2009 Hetalia was weighted with reality anchors, upon its inception into the Class VI media echelon, then it can be used with some confidence as a relay point for understanding your own reality.

Lessons on reaffirming identity, such as those portrayed through the character of mochi America, show us how moving, singing, displaying symbols of self, finding comfort phrases, making our thoughts and feelings known, while also adapting to the situation we find ourselves in, can help us shape an existence within a reality occupied by forms outside of our perceived selves.

Reality relay points can be found within Hetalia content, and within the way we interact with any given Hetalia content. Within the media of Hetalia we can find reflections of ourselves, our world, and interlocking chains of events that unfold around our story. The varied story of creators, consumers, fans, dissidents, and periphery walkers bounce off of Hetalia and interact with Hetalia, as our perceived lives progress alongside the life of this perceived media franchise.

Hopefully you can find an answer to your question. If Hetalia can provide a point of reference on your search, know that the insights gained from Hetalia-related reality quests are solid, and as meaningful as any Class V media echelon insights.
