well it was either that or sort my life out

interpreting the existence of hetalia personifications

So, @yosb and I were talking about our interpretations of hetalia personifications and it…got way more academic than either of us anticipated so. Hence, this post to sort out and articulate my thoughts because it is incredibly interesting how differently we interpret hetalia personifications based on our own life experiences and background.

Now, however, things have kind of evened out for me, and I have more free time than usual. I’d really like to get back into RP’ing, and not just on this blog, either. I’d really like to see if I can kickstart @the-kind-sadist again, as well. I’d just like to post this as a litmus test; a way to gauge interest in my characters. If nobody expresses that they’d like me to come back, then I’ll just carry on as I have been.

I am hoping to hear from y’all, though.
