lily of the south

au where everything’s the same except Remus talks like an old southern woman.

“Y'all please”

“Harry, Harry… Bless your heart”

“Severus, I swear to the Lord, if you don’t shut your trap this instant, I’ll stick a sock in in for you”

*puts hands over Harry’s ears* “Little ears, you silly fucking asshat”

“Well, Harry, back when I was a boy”

*something happens* “Well, I never”

And who could forget:

“Sirius Black… Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit”

i have had the unfortunate opportunity to grow up in a part of the south, and i heard pretty much all of these things at some point in my life. i’m not exaggerating. feel free to add.

anonymous asked:

france, prussia, south italy, lithuania, and russia reacting to a shy s/o who always very nervously asks them for hugs all the time

Awww anon, I love this ask! It perked up my mood a little writing the response for it. :) I’m still pretty tired though - hopefully I’ll be better tomorrow - so these are a little shorter than I would have liked. Still doll, I really hope you enjoy them and that they warm your heart like writing them did for me~! <3 

France: Ohoho~ He would be very happy to receive so many hugs on a regular basis. Maybe a little too happy, if you catch my drift. He’d probably try to get in some gropes every couple of hugs, the sly fox~ Seriously though, it does make him feel good to know that his s/o is open to showing physical affection with him, especially since they’re so shy. He feels good about himself because of this, well more so than before. When he’s not flirting, Francis would give his s/o a quick peck on the cheek as a thanks for the hugs. <3

Prussia: He’d be a little surprised the first couple of times his s/o wants some hugs. He knows how shy they can be and with his sometimes overly outgoing personality, he’s still a little unsure how they even want to be with him? However, Gilbert definitely wouldn’t turn them down, he’d be giving his s/o big bear hugs whenever they wanted them! Anytime, anywhere, just ask, s/o! He can be rather affectionate when he wants to, so all those hugs would really warm his heart. He’d definitely be super grateful. <3

South Italy: Romano would be a blushing mess every time his s/o asked for a hug, honestly. He loves giving hugs, especially to his wonderful s/o, but physical affection kind of embarrasses him. Especially if the two of you are in public when a hug is requested. That won’t stop him from doing it of course, but he won’t make eye contact and might grumble a little about how needy his s/o is. Plus, they’re just so cute when they get all nervous and ask for hugs … help him, his heart is pounding. <3

Lithuania: Toris can be a little shy when it comes to physical affection as well but he’d be less tsundere about it than South Italy. He just isn’t used to having someone so close to him that they want to hug him all the time. Or really anyone that cares about him on a deep level. It’s something that will take him a while to get used to, so in the meantime his s/o will just need to be patient. If his s/o asks for a hug in public, especially if it’s in front of Russia or Poland, he’d die of embarrassment but would be overjoyed all at the same time. Can he have another, please? <3

Russia: Awww s/o, you’re so cute~! Ivan would absolutely love it if his s/o gave him hugs, especially if they did it on a regular basis. The poor man grew up without much love in his life so he really needs it now. To know that his s/o is pushing past their natural shyness just to hold him makes him feel really special. He’d be like a ray of sunshine every time they asked for a hug, even if he was in a bad mood before. He would give them extra long, snuggly hugs that would end with him patting their head affectionately while smiling. <3

Let's say America, England, Prussia, Germany, and Romano were out with their S/O one day, and they saw a not-good person from their S/O's past, (bully, parent, sibling, relative ex SO, ex friend, etc) and they try to approach them, causing the S/o to panic. What would the country do? (I'm so sorry for this long / possibly boring ask! And if you don't want to answer it then I understand.)

Oh hun I don’t think this ask is boring at all! Of course I’ll do it, thanks a lot for sending it in! So for this ask, I just went off the assumption that the countries don’t know why their s/o is so upset, because they’re not aware of the history. I hope that’s alright dear and that my response brings some cheer to your day~!

America: The moment Alfred sees how upset his s/o is at this person from their past coming close, he’ll become very protective of his s/o. He’s the Hero after all, he’s not going to leave his s/o defenseless! If his s/o is really panicking bad, he’ll pull them away from the situation because he doesn’t want them even near this person that’s freaking them out so much. After they’re at a safe spot, he’ll do his best to calm them down, probably by buying them something to nibble on and cracking jokes to distract them. Once they’re alright, he’ll definitely want to know why they reacted the way that they did. Did that person ever hurt them? If so, his s/o might have a problem with Alfred trying to get up and go hunt down that person, but he would at least take his s/o home before that because they’re his first priority.

England: Even though Arthur doesn’t understand what’s happening, he doesn’t need to. What’s important to him is that his s/o is really upset right now and he needs to change that. He definitely wouldn’t even bother with this person coming over, just walk away with his s/o as if they don’t even exist. They’re clearly not worth his time and energy anyway. His main goal will be taking his s/o home (unless they don’t want to) and making sure that they’re okay. He’ll make them some calming tea and drink it with them, occasionally squeezing his s/o’s hand reassuringly. He recognizes that it was a bit of an extreme reaction, so he’ll want to know why his s/o got so upset. He won’t push them to talk about it if they don’t want to though, because he’s just happy nothing bad happened.

Prussia: Gilbert’s immediate reaction to seeing how panicked and frightened his s/o is would be to step in front of them to block the person. If they try to go around him or confront him about why he’s not letting them near his s/o, he’ll get super rude with them. Either way though, he’d be confident in his ability to keep his s/o safe and after sending a nasty glare the person’s way, he’d try to bring his s/o’s attention to something else. They’d walk away and he’d take them to do something fun, whatever they want! Meanwhile, as his s/o is calming down, he’d be keeping a wary eye out for the person trying to approach again, even if they’re in a completely new location. Once the day is over and they’re home, he’d let his s/o know they can talk to him about it if they want. Also, do they need him to beat anybody up because he can do that for them easily. He’d be happy to just spend the night chilling with his s/o too though.

South Italy: He’d be a bit unsure how to handle the situation at first. He doesn’t know the story behind his s/o’s fear and he’s not exactly the best at confronting potentially dangerous situations. However, Romano does have quite an attitude so when he realizes his s/o is really upset, he’ll snap at the person coming close. He’ll tell them to back off, probably cursing at them or throwing an insult and then hurry away with his s/o as fast as possible. He’d definitely just want to get out of there, whatever they were doing can wait till tomorrow. His s/o is more important anyway. Once they’re home, he’d again be a bit worried because he’s not sure how to go about making them feel better. In the end, he’ll just get stressed out himself and pull them in for a hug, rubbing their back until they’ve calmed down. If they want to talk, he’s fine with that because he’s there for them, as long as they feel better. 

Germany: He’s honestly caught being aggressive towards this person and immediately helping out his s/o. Ludwig definitely doesn’t like that just this person’s presence can upset his s/o this much, it will make him suspect something deeper. He would decide to just leave with his s/o, but if this person tries to talk to them at all, all he’ll need to do is glare to get them to back off. He’ll take his s/o home and bring his dogs all in for a massive cuddle with his s/o, to cheer them up and calm them down. As they’re playing and petting the dogs, he’d keep wondering to himself why that person made his s/o react the way they did. He’s very worried for them and so he’ll ask them about it, plain and simple. He’ll end up being extra cautious whenever they go out in the future, though he’ll try not to let his s/o know. He just really wants to make sure that doesn’t happen again and that his s/o is happy.

There is no magic.
There is only the daily grind
of making happen what needs to happen
in light of all things considered
in each situation as it arises
all our life long.

The Republicans in the magic of money.
Wealth is the solution to all of their problems today,
and every day.
They do not take into account
all of the problems
their solution creates
in their own personal life,
in the life of the nation,
the culture and the world.
Republicans will never be confused
with those who
take all things into account.
Their vision stops with their ideology.
“If we do this, this, and this, that will happen–
and that will be all that happens–
and it will be wonderful
with unfolding layers of resplendent glory

The majority of the rest of U.S. citizens
believe in magic of a different variety–
“We’ve seen bad times before.
The darkness is always followed by the light.
We’ll just keep our heads down
and everything will be fine.”


There is only seeing things as they are
in each situation as it arises,
including seeing what needs to be done about it,
and doing it
in light of all things considered,
in every situation that comes up
all our life long

We step into our day
and do there what needs us to do it.
We step into our life–
the one we are living
and the one that we are here to live–
and do there what needs us to do it.
With no time out
and no day off.
One day,
and one situation within each day,
at a time.

We are the magic we seek in the world.
Wands are a prop.
It’s all about the heart and soul
of the witches and wizards.
If you conjure up heart and soul,
magic will happen
in each situation as it arises
all your life long

Imagine this: It's bring your pet to work day, every country brings a normal animal except maybe Australia. Everybody is there except Greece and Germany. Cue to 2 doors diametrically opposed opening and an army of dogs coming from one door and an army of cats from another with Germany and Greece respectively behind each one with a smile on their face like what just happened was normal

Lmao your imagination is beautiful, honey~! I love it! <3 :D Honestly, this is so in character and I can see it so well in my head! And then these two would probably realize that they just released a bunch of dogs and cats together in the same space and start arguing with each other. Then it would turn into which a animal is better type of thing and they’d keep this up, while everyone else in the meeting room is desperately trying to contain the crazy amount of animals.

Countries are scared, holding their own animals (especially if they have small ones) and some are standing on chairs. The Italy brothers (including Seborga) are petting as many animals as they can, Prussia and America are both just laughing obnoxiously at the chaos, Russia is just sitting in a corner with animals piled on top of him, smiling like nothing is happening. Austria would begin trying to calm down the animals with some music but it only makes them more hyper.

Japan is deciding how many animals he can adopt without it becoming a problem, England and France are cursing at each other for no particular reason other than that’s what they do in any situation, and China has passed out from an overload of cuteness. Poland is miffed no one else brought a pony for their pet and the Baltics have all become buried under fuzzy animal love. Spain is just laughing and smiling, totally oblivious to everyone’s distress, while Turkey has taken Germany’s side in his argument simply because he hates Greece. 

Sweden has picked up Finland and thrown him over his shoulder because he doesn’t want him getting hurt, causing the man to be bright red. Denmark is running around, having the time of his life cuddling & petting all these cute animals. Australia is probably one of the few people who are actually being helpful and making a difference in rounding up the animals. 

Everyone else is pretty much just like what the hell is going on?!

anonymous asked:

which countries do u think would like an s/o who wants more physical affection than most other people

I honestly feel like most of them would be alright with this, especially the longer they’re with their s/o. Probably the only ones that might struggle with an s/o like this (especially if the s/o does this in public) are the more withdrawn or shy characters. To name some off the top of my head, Sweden, Japan, Netherlands, and the Baltics. Maybe also the more tsundere characters like Switzerland and England. 

However, I still think that all these countries would be fine with it if their s/o is willing to work with them on it, you know? Set boundaries, like hey no PDA but sure yeah cuddling at home is super cool. Maybe not when they’re working but when it’s time to go to bed, holding each other as you fall asleep is great. Like it’s a time and place type of thing and then of course they’ll be shy about it or all ‘whatever I could care less’. But I think if any country is willing to enter into a relationship with a human, they really care about that person. 

Sorry for rambling lol. As for the countries that would like it the most and really be great for an s/o who likes extra physical affection, I’ll list them.

America, France, Russia, Denmark, the Italy brothers, Prussia, Hungary, Belarus, Greece, Spain, and Ancient Rome (lmao). This is all my opinion going off their personalities of course. :) Thanks for asking doll~! <3
