Fellow US/UK/US shippers! Have you seen the writing comm for our precious ship? It's the [livejournal.com profile] usxukworkshop and it was created by [livejournal.com profile] bluemyst19 as a space to help and get help in our writing projects. Check it out guys!

*I have no idea who the creator of that cute drawing is. If anyone knows, let me know so I can credit hir. Thank you!

I know many of the people in my f-list is very aware when it comes to politics, something I really appreciate. I love talking about real world issues, as you may know. Which brings me to the point of this post: Wikileaks. I don't know how many of you are following this or following the tweets about this but I am. And I kind of wish I were shocked by the kind of information being released but I am not. I guess my own country's history made me a cynical because I do not trust any government. I simply don't. 

Over 60% of the casualties were civilians. It seems that every time some important jerk decides to wage war on some other important jerk, innocent people end dying. And being an almost historian I know this is what always happens, but that knowledge doesn't make it less horrific. I am not sure what I want to say, it's not that I wasn't aware of this but... yeah. It's awful. 

I'm following this trough Twitter, The NY Times and The Guardian, as well as trough a national paper, Perfil. Right now, I'm thinking about the fact that UN called on Obama to investigate human rights abuses and how the US ignored the cases of torture

I seldom rec anything here but I need to do this. I've been reading this gorgeous fill [livejournal.com profile] hetalia_kink and I thought of sharing it with the world my f-list. 

The prompt:

Let's assume we're at a prestigious private boarding all-boys high school.

Arthur's a freshman. Alfred's the teacher, a significantly older teacher. Mr. Jones feels terribly guilty for wanting his student, but makes advances on him anyway. Arthur rejects him, uh, not with polite words.

Alfred pulls his teacher/guardian string to lure Arthur into bed, so that he can teach Arthur a thing or two about respect. Arthur only consents because he has no other choice. What I really want to see is severe imbalance in power/control in their relationship.

Angst is a must, dub-con/non-con is fine, smut is delicious.

Bonus: Arthur receives financial aid from school. Alfred uses that as leverage.
Bonus 2: Arthur's a virgin before Alfred.
Bonus 3: Arthur's friend, [insert] finds out and tries to do something about it.

So, yes, this is me reccing a rape fic again. But like last time, this is not the kind of story you get off to or in which the author uses rape as a cheap plot device or a way to fall in love or a excuse for Healing!Panis. No, no. This, like Ah, Underneath, by the brilliant [livejournal.com profile] themillersson is well written and realistic and painful

The story is written from Alfred's POV and the author gives us a terrifying but engaging glimpse of Alfred's mind. I was going to write "predator" but I backtracked. Alfred is a predator in this story (the blackmail, the hand lotion) but he's not a serial rapist as far as we know. He starts being a normal person and descends to the depths of an obsession that reminded me, somehow, to Humbert Humber. Somehow, because as I said, he's not looking for children but is obsessed with Arthur and rationalises everything, his lust, his feelings, his need to blame the victim. But unlike HH , Alfred knows (somewhere) he's doing something terrible. It's truly an amazing piece. 

Francis also appears as Arthur's roommate (crush?) and Matt does, as well, as Alfred's brother. 

I can't do this story justice, but I can pimp it. If you feel like it, go ahead and read it. It's a WIP with 76 parts up to now. Ah! I almost forgot. I think it's by the same person who, I think,  wrote Sign A New Agreement With iTunes which is, to this day, my favourite FrUK fic.

Part One (1 to  56) || Part Two (57 to 76)

A dear friend was making a timeline of the American Revolutionary War and she came across with this: US and UK: A transatlantic love story? which she found hilarious, knowing my Hetalia obsession.  Ngl, I giggled. A lot. Like the shameless fangirl that I am. Why so awesome, international politics?
