This is the most self-indulgent thing I ever wrote, but WELL. I can indulge myself if I feel like it, right? Right? And I really feel like it, so I'll just... avoid my own eyes in the mirror for a while and hide this from Sakura (… this part is a lie) and take comfort from the fact that no one will read this anyway. 8D

So, about the fic The Promise.


this is long and rambly )

Hey, guys, remember we were supposed to think about something to celebrate the Comm's birthday?

SO. Since Cony refuses to send us chocolate, I was thinking maybe we could make a variation of the friending meme. It would look like this:

Age:
Gender:
Location:
Favorite characters:
Favorite pairings:
Other fandoms:
What you'll find in my journal:
When did you meet the comm, and how:
ANYTHING ELSE:



My reasons for this:


1. Most of the ideas people gave are really awesome, but I think they would work better as... gen ideas. Not related to the comm. Like the meme. It would be COOL, but it will take time for people to fill it. Gala's idea, making a panel and all, was cool too, but now I think it would work better in december, because now people are not having birthday thoughts and they won't be as INSPIRING. But we could try to make it to celebrate when the year ends.


2. We have new members, and we don't know everyone yet.

3. It would help me to (FINALLY) find out who are the uruguayans in this comm.

4. Friending memes are fun okay, and the comm helped us to make new friends and meet people so it would be FITTING AND SYMBOLIC. So there.

 So I'll probably be away for a while for reasons of going to the beach 8D but I'll check how the internetz is going every other day, probably. I think I'm addicted.

Of course, first I'll have to go to uni's city to find my teacher and give her 30 pages of awesome, even if a little underesearched, stuff of DOOM, and get some books from the library and I REALLY DIDN'T WANT TO GO /lazy but whatevs at least I'll have the books.  Re the Secret Santa, everybody confirmed their assignments and I'll make a post about it as soon as possible so it's all cool I hope and my NaNo makes no sense, like, AT ALL and I should be writing it right now because I'm late OTL

(btw, Write or Die

is

AWESOME)


Sooooo see you all eventually ^^

I am so very BORED. I need a job. Or something. Bored bored BORED

Anyway, have some super deredere news from Argentina re: the fact that we're taking over <3


(e eu posso saber pq Sampa vira San Pablo mas Rio não vira Río de Enero? puta injustiça isso, meu)


E dando uma bizoiada no clarin para fins de stalkear o que se passa com os hermanos, descobri várias coisas interessantes:

1. Tem algum tipo de competição rolando aí que envolve basquete. E parece que a gente ganhamos. Acho. Sei que eles estavam desprezando o Uruguai, que não jogou por... razões que eu teria que ter lido pra entender completamente 8D

2. A propósito de Uruguai, leeeeembra duma briga antiga entre eles dois a respeito da fábrica de celulose, que foi parar na corte de Haia e que por conta disso o Uruguai acabou ficando bravo com a gente por não impedir esse fiasco sendo que a gente mesmo não tinha nada com isso mas tudo bem, porque a gente fez que não ouviu e não pretendia tocar nisso nem com uma vara de três metros, mas de qualquer modo eles estavam se xingando muito mais entre eles do que xingando nóis pra início de conversa? Então, resolveram <3



but i'm still bored. vou ler ontd pra ver se pego algum gif legal.

Pois é, gente, Lá e Cá acabou.

Não sei quanto a vocês, mas eu achei esse programa uma delícia. Acho que todos tiveram alguma coisa bonitinha ou divertida ou interessante de se aprender (até aquele do empreendedorismo, lol). Acho que o meu preferido ainda é aquele da discussão sobre se dá pra considerar esses dois como pai e filho, e aquele sobre quanto o Brasil deixou de ser visto como uma colônia. O segmento do bate boca também foi muito legal, pá, e as entrevistas com o povo na rua (e participação especial da av. Paulista) me fez ficar... deveras intrigada com as idéias dessa gente que eles acham 8D


Em suma, muito legal.

Só mais duas coisas. A primeira: esse programa veio meio que dez minutos depois de eu reclamar pros quatro ventos que não estava achando nada sobre esses dois. Então. Eu ando me interessando muito pela guerra de Oribe e Rosas. Just saying 8D /senta com pipoca


A segunda: sou só eu que acha que o Fado Tropical não é uma música lá muito diplomática? Tipo... o problema é que não dá pra dizer muita coisa, porque ou as pessoas que usam nos moentos fluffy entre Port e Brasil não captaram a mensagem, ou captaram bem demais e estão subvertendo e fazendo uma contextualização irônica da ironia e talz E AÍ JÁ VIU.

Quando a mim, eu ainda acho que ela funciona bem melhor como uma delicada fuck you note que port nem entendeu e ninguém vai explicar ^_^""""



Enfim. Selo de aprovação. Eshtoi até a me sentir mais purtuguesa, poish /shot
berseker: (i'mtalking)
então, alguém sabe alguma biografia legal do Duque de Caxias? Porque eu devo ser a única pessoa do meu círculo de relações que acha o cara super legal <3



MAS ENTÃO, como todos bem sabem, dia 09 de julho é mais ou menos aniversário só que não de São Paulo. Mais um feriado patriótico. Sacumé. No qual celebramos a revolução fracassada de 32 nem vem que a família toda faz isso e eu ia fazer algo sobre, mas fiquei sem inspiração (ainda não desisti, mas vai ser um presente atrasado. Tenho certeza de que Sampa compreenderá).

Fica, portanto, a música pra vocês terem pensamentos paulistas <3

Então, né, eu ia assistir o jogo da Argentina mas não consigo achar livestream e não posso sair daqui porque tenho um zilhão de coisas pra fazer ENTÃO FODA-SE u.u

Vou trabalhar, que eu ganho mais. Essa copa está comendo a minha vida omg.


(... gente, o outro jogo dos hermanos é dia 22 e eu tenho uma reunião bem na hora. Preciso pensar numa desculpa pra poder faltar ^_^)




ETA: 4x1. Coool. Não que eu vá celebrar, porque eu não quero apanhar aqui orz mas parece que as coisas estão esquentando agora falta o Brasil se animar e

Fora isso, os funcionários da facu continuam em greve, o que significa que a biblioteca continua fechada, o que significa que eu ainda não posso tirar livros. Por outro lado, eu comprei três altamente random numa feira hoje, então I'm cool 8D

Lá e Cá continua super awesome made of win nem sei gente, estou curtindo horrores <3<3 esse último foi muito fofinho. Dia desses eu ainda vou ler o Ondjaki, só porque a voz dele é doce.

E fora isso estou morrendo congelada.


(... passei o feriado tentando escrever sobre a independência do Sebby, e não consegui simplesmente porque não atino com o jeito de começar. Isso está me frustrando ç_ç)


ETA: OKAY DESISTO. RE LÁ E CÁ, alguém sabe donde é o poema da abertura dessa semana? Meu google-fu está fraco hoje.

Pra quem não lembra:

Nas veias do império
cresce
O sonho de um povo
nação
Em teias o império tece
Fios de dor, mágoa e
perdão

Happy Birthday Argentina!!


now just what the hell are we celebrating anyway? )
berseker: (i'mtalking)

...it’s not boring anymore. Or it’s boring in a different way. )

On a brighter note, my Argentinean friend brought some empanadas to class today, to celebrate Martin’s birthday. Martin’s birthday is in May and I think she got a little confused, because we’re still in April, unless there’s something really weird going on here but I’m not complained. A month ago she said she would do this and I was the only one who got excited about it and I think she was pleased with me and I didn’t told her I want to have sex with her nation, but still. The empanadas were good. And since she started, I’ll ride along and start rambling about it now o/

raaaambling )
berseker: (i'mtalking)
I feel weird.

And that would be because I didn’t sleep this night. I tried, but the fact that I’m kinda staying up all night and sleeping through the day makes it hard to go to bed at night when I actually have to, so yeah. I gave up at some point around six in the morning and then I got up to wash the dishes and now I’m here at uni’s lab kinda thinking about writing fics and FEELING WEIRD. Because I didn’t sleep.

So I feel weird.

But at least I got to read a lot last night (since I didn’t sleep), even if we had a blackout (again. I’m starting to get used to this), but that didn’t stop me because I had a flashlight and you know, this is nothing, a few years ago we had blackout while I was reading The Half Blood Prince and read it in the light of my cellphone.

This time the book was about the relations between Brazil, Argentina and USA (bet you didn’t see this coming) and I swear it’s fascinating. We’re at some point around 1920 and they had more bad breakups than I can count, and their relationship is cool on its own merits, but when you add other countries to the mix it gets even better. So far we had USA (he’s important) and England (also important) and Germany (relevant but not as much as the other two) and France (well, he’s trying).

And, of course, we have the rest of South America. There was this cool part circa 18-somethings that went a little like this: Brazil and Argentina were rivals, trying to a) get influence over countries like Uruguay and Paraguay and b) prevent the other from doing so. Both were convinced the other wanted to attack them and neither one actually wanted to, but, you know. Brazil and Chile were traditional friends (no borders, no reason to fight, eh?), even if they never actually wrote it down, and this made Martín really worried, because he was surrounded, so everytime he was fighting with Chile, he tried to befriend Brazil and every time things with Brazil went bad he had to be nice to Chile, because he couldn’t afford to be attacked on two fronts. And Chile’s friendship was important to Brazil because he didn’t want Chile and Argentina uniting against him, and also because it prevented Argentina from trying to annex Bolivia. Brazil’s friendship was important to Chile because it forced Argentina to calm the fuck down (see above) and not attack him and also because he had problems with Peru and Bolivia and couldn’t afford more enemies than he already had. Bolivia wanted a part of Paraguay, but couldn’t get it because, well, it belonged to Paraguay, and Paraguay was totally Argentina’s satellite, and Bolivia also wanted a way to the sea but couldn't get it because of Chile and Paraguay wanted to be left alone but not really, because he wouldn’t be able to prevent anyone from annexing him and I think Uruguay wanted everyone to go die in a fire, but he was siding with Brazil for now, not that Argentina wasn’t trying to make them fight and that’s not even the story, that’s just the setting.

Like I said, fascinating. So much that I read it with the flashlight and I didn’t even mind the author’s tendency to go into Yoda mode every now and then (agreed on the treaty was not, for oil was not found in Paraguay. WTF)

And why, will you ask, and I telling you all of this?

No reason. I just wanted to share.

Also, I still feel weird.

(and the first person to write Argentina/USA will totally get a cookie. It's like a really REALLY bad date going on for centuries. Same about Argentina/England)

Coisas random que aconteceram essa semana:

...como assim, você não quer saber? )

Question to all the girls around:


So, I was wasting my time reading some articles on psychology or something (you know how it is, you start in some site about the best quotes from SpongeBob Squarepants and end up reading something about Co-dependence for Dummies or… something, that’s not the point) and I reached this thing here with the Ten Elements of Effective Relationships, and the author said Transparency and Communication were keys to a good relationship and then he told the following anecdote to exemplify a healthy and open interaction between husband and wife:

If you're going to be transparent and communicate, then you might as well put it all out there. Truth goes a lot farther than eggshell walking.

A friend of mine was shopping with his wife and, modeling a dress, she said, "Honey, does this dress make me look fat?" (This is a true story). He said, "No baby...it's the extra 20 pounds you're carrying that make you look fat." - oh, my... And then he said, "You know, I think we could probably both take better care of ourselves - maybe we should start working out together or something."

A source of potential conflict and discontent is transformed into a source of mutual growth and cultivation. Telling the truth about the way that we feel can only benefit a relationship. Stuffing never ends well.




... So, to all the girls who happen to read this: am I the only one who would NEVER forgive this guy?

Working out together. YEAH RIGHT.



/well, told you I was wasting time.

Now, for something new:


Fresh row erupts over UK Falkland claims
Tue, 19 Jan 2010

A fresh diplomatic row has erupted between Britain and Argentina over the disputed Falkland Islands which are claimed as an overseas territory by both London and Buenos Aires. Last month, Argentina enacted a law laying claim over the Malvinas Islands, which are called the Falklands by Britain. The law defines the islands as Argentina's southern-most province. Britain rejected the new ruling, saying the United Kingdom has "no doubt" about its sovereignty over the region.

Thumbs down:

1. Copenhagen. Bleh.
2. Well... our political scandals. I don’t even want to know. They will have to sort it out without me U.U
3. The writer block I had this week I DON’T NEED THIS NOW, WORLD. At least it’s over. I think.
4. I had to wake up at 1 p.m. today so I IZ SLEEPY … wat, I’m a night owl okay



Thumbs up:

1. Found my plot for my USUK fic exchange. I think. Now I just need to write it. 8D
2. Waxed my legs. Not Brazilian wax, because I’m not that brave. Still. My legs are all pretty now. Erm. What do you mean too much information?
3. Finished Christmas shopping, the reason why I woke up at that ungodly hour in the first place.
4. Finally watched The Princess and the Frog, and it was lovely, so yay. :D


And I also read some bits of heartwarming shippy news, which I’ll share with you because it’s almost Christmas and I’m sure everyone wants to know about vaccines on Christmas \o/

Click here for healthy stuff. And Br/Arg. Healthy Br/Arg stuff. Erm. You know what I mean. )



Now for something really, REALLY silly. There’s this movie, right, and it’s about a spy girl and a super villain girl and they fall in love and it’s cute and fluff and fun. It’s called D.E.B.S.

So, take a look at this and tell me if it isn’t genderbent live-action Brazil/Argentina right there.

I mean, come on, take a look )

OH RIOT_OF_FLOWERS, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Yes, I know I'm late. I'm ashamed of myself. STILL. I LOVE YOU AND I LOVE SLEEPING WITH YOU <3<3<3

This was the Writer’s Block question today:

If you were asked to recommend one destination in your country to LiveJournal friends who had never been to your country before, what place would you choose, and why?

I lol’ed. Everything sounds so Hetalia’ed nowadays, lol. And, well. Since Lulu is the fifth largest country there are lots of places to recommend. I haven’t been to all famous spots and I’ve lived here all my life. I think it’s more expensive to visit the Northeast State-tans than, say, Argentina.

So, considering the places I’ve been to, I’d say, first, Iguaçu Falls. And then Rio de Janeiro.

I mean, look at that. )

And nao for some meme tiems:

▪ Leave me a comment saying "Suddenly an unconscious Argentinean fell through my roof."
▪ I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
▪ Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
▪ Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.


[livejournal.com profile] zulenha asked (and I translated for the hell of it):

1. How long does it take for you to write a story?
2. If you could meet anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you want to meet?
3. What did you want to be when you were chibi!Marizinha lol what a cute question
4. What’s your oldest memory?
5. What would you do if an unconscious Argentinean suddenly fell though your roof?


answers here )

So, I think I can almost consider myself in vacations now – I have two stupid meetings things next week, but this is it – after those free until next February.

Well, sorta. My dissertation’s better be ready when I come back because I still need that degree, you know, and my teaches is getting ready to murder me, but still. At least I won’t have classes. And I’ll be able to dedicate myself to my real priorities without too much guilt.

My priority is Hetalia, in case you’re wondering. And, since it’s December and Christmas is the season of giving and all, I decided that everyone should give gifts to me ^_^

And since I’m not that shameless, I also decided that I wanted to give gifts for everyone, so if you give me a prompt and a pairing I’ll write something for you as a Christmas gift because I love you all. Anything goes, I'm feeling daring today. <3<3<3

And since you’re probably at a loss for words now and I’m a very generous person, I’ll also provide you with a list of things you can say in a situation like this. You can also use some when you get the gift:


- Hey! Now there’s a gift!
- Well, well, well... lol, I like this one
- Gosh. I hope this never catches fire! It is fire season though. There are lots of unexplained fires.
- If the dog buries it, I’ll be furious!
- I love it – but I fear the jealousy it will inspire.
- Sadly, tomorrow I enter the Federal Witness Protection Program.
- To think I got this the year I vowed to give all my gifts to charity.
- I really don’t deserve this.


ANYWAY, TODAY I LEANED SOMETHING. DON’T YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT IT WAS?

LEARNINGS THIS WAY )

ETA: Oh, btw, you don't actually need to give me something back, just saying. I just feel like giving christmas gifts. <3<3<3

SO.

Help me out with something here. If you’ve been long enough in LJ, you know there are half a dozen comms with prompts and challenges, right? There’s 30 Kisses, 30 Hugs, tarot cards, AUs and so on, right? There’s also the deadly sins challenge thing.

Now, I didn’t join the comm, and this is not the point anyway. The point is that I kinda want to do the thing with America (it was supposed to be South, but I decided it would be cool to include North too, but not Central because I know NOTHING about them).

So now I’m having fun here trying to match the characters with the sins. And, since I’m a nice person and this will probably turn out a little dark, I want to do the virtues too. Of course, the characters can’t have a sin and the exact opposite virtue, because that just doesn’t happen. So this is what I came up with so far:

(Oh, and also, warning for potentially offensive content. BUT IT’S FOR THE GREATER JUSTICE)

See if you can remember all the sins before clicking here. I did. \o/ )

...now i'm kinda thinking it would be interesting to add Portugal orz
berseker: (bandeiras)
Yay, Portugal will go to South Africa. *HIGH FIVES*


I was reading something about Brazilian players in foreign teams, and the news said that now we have 12 players abroad. Three of them are part of Port’s team, go figure. The reporter said FIFA is trying to cut this out, because it’s an international competition and the players are supposed the be from the country they’re representing, dammit.

Uh. Fine, makes sense, I guess. If memory serves me, lots of French people didn’t really like their 2006 team because lots of players were from Francis’ African babies. racism, you say? Of course not.

But I’m not here to be mean. The guy has a point. If one of ours decided to play for Argentina against Brazil in a World Cup match, he’ll be cordially lynched when he comes back. So there.

Still, so far everyone is kinda giving him the finger for being such a cockblocker, but whatever. The cool part is that, according to said magazine, lots of very talented athletes are from South America (again, go figure) and lots of them play in Europe and Asia and I’m not sure about Africa and Oceania, but still, we keep this up and the 2014 will be a BrazilxArgentina thing no matter what team is playing. I THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY OKAY.

It also said that it’s hard to define nationality, because sometimes this stems more from culture and language and religion and stuff than from the place you are actually born, and proof of this is that Brazilian players tend to go to Portugal and Argentines’ tend to play for Spain.

Make of that what you will. I thought it was cute. :D

So, let’s see who’ll be there:

Asia: Aussie, both Koreas and Japan. What is Aussie doing here? Shouldn’t he be Oceania?
South America: The Fantastic Four (Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay) plus Paraguay.
North America: Mexico, USA and Honduras (north America since when? I thought he was central. Someone get me a map, please)
Europa: Holland, England, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Serbia, Italy, Switzerland, Slovakia, Greece, Portugal (YAY), Slovenia and France nii-chan. Who’s not celebrating, because, according to the newspaper, ‘Many believe the victory may not be that well-deserved after the team captain and striker, Thierry Henry, admitted accidentally fouling with a handball’. Hand of god, anyone? I hope you're dying of flashbacks now, Martin.
Oceania: New Zealand so lonely orz
Africa: Algeria, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria. And, of course, South Africa, because he’s hosting the thing.


So, get your flags and patriotic t-shirts and may Brazil the best team win. NOW IT’S FUCKING ON.





(or, you know. It will be, next year. Still. RAAAAAAWR DRUMS OF WAR)

Lyrics here, in case you’re interested. But the English version kinda hurts my soul. This must be one of the most beautiful Anthems, and the translation just doesn’t live up to it. Everything is gorgeous, the lyrics, the melody, everything. I feel more proud hearing this one than the actual national anthem.

Anyway.

History tiems, with commentary by Luci and Martin, because this is not a good subject to discuss with Port. Just saying. Oh, and this might turn depressing. It also might involve harsh words toward England. There’s a reason why Luciano doesn’t do nationalism, you know. )
