welcome to england

- K1 P1 K1 P1 K1 M1 P1 K1 P1 K1 P1 Sacrifice your first born K1 P1 K1 P1. Make sure to follow the pattern precisely.

- You walk into the yarn store. Just one skein. You only need one skein to finish the sweater. You have the dye lot written down, marked on the original wrapper from the old skeins. You can’t find the dye lot. It never existed. It was never real. The arcane sigils mean nothing and pain your eyes to look upon.

- The pattern takes a size 7 needle. Going through the roll, you have all but a 7. 1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,10.5,11,12,13. There is no 7. You change patterns. The pattern takes a size 5 needle. Going through the roll, you have all but a 5. 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,10,10.5,11,12,13. There is no 5.

- Finally, after years, you have found your way to Webs. No more will you buy your yarn from the big box craft store, you swear. As you reach for the 100% alpaca, it melts away. The sock yarn. The cashmere. The bamboo silk. They all fade away to nothing, leaving behind only Red Heart.

- As the stitch drops, you can hear the screaming rush of the universe. The hole in your project grows larger and larger, a gaping maw that calls to you from the abyss. There is no escaping what you have wrought.

- As you approach the counter to pay for your single skein, you look down and realize that you are holding two. Three. Yarn just appears in your hands. Money streams out of your wallet. There will only be yarn. You will be yarn.

- You click to open your email. Ravelry opens. You click on Google. Ravelry opens. You click on Facebook. Ravelry opens. Finally, you click on Ravelry. Webs opens. Your cart is full.

wr-ightings  asked:

Is Alfred the only one who is suspicious of your relationship? And for mun, do you have a favorite Au for Ivan and Arthur?

Now that you mention it, there is one…

This one I like to call “Welcome to Chicago”

-(time: 1993ish) Arthur Kirkland is a bit lagging on money(and a job), and so he moves to America ‘for opportunity’. He’s lucky enough to been able move-in with his american cousin Alfred Jones(who turns out to be a 25 year-old man child). 

What Arthur finds out the hard way, is that Alfred may or may not have had a few run-ins with the local gang, and one who takes care of some of the ‘enforcing’ is Ivan Braginski. Their apartment neighbor. And Alfred on occasion owes money, and Arthur(being around Alfred at the time) gets caught up in all the mess.

Of course Shenanigans ensue, as the duo gets caught up with a ‘Who done it’ murder, a crazy Russian, flirtatious french women, and just a bit more.

(I’ve only bits and parts of the story down, but the premise is mostly solid)


Probably one of my most favorite moments in the musical is this part at the end. So sweet and Russia is such a big cutie through out the musical. I actually cried like a big loser at the ending. America’s “Welcome back” To England make me crack like an egg. It got so emotional at some parts the actors were actually crying. During this part England was still crying and a snooty mess. England using Alcohol to cope with losing America.. There is a lot going on in the musical. Buy the DVD and support the musical guys. These actors worked so hard and if you know Japanese there is no excuse to not support something so amazing. Maybe I am talking very emotionally but this musical is a great story and could even be great by itself without the Hetalia attached to it. The singing has improved from the first Musical, and the choreography seemed a bit more intense. I can honestly say Hetalia The Great World is one of my prized possessions.
