Hetaquette

Welcome to the class. Have a damn seat.

Anonymous asked: This blog is amazing! You know, I used to be a big Hetalia fan until I came across all the fan fiction and fan art and cosplay about my country being a psychopathic, insane rapist. After that, I literally couldn't take it anymore, but I've slowly come back to the fandom and found the sane fans.

Unfortunately a number of Hetalia characters have fallen victim to some rather undesirable portrayals. Thankfully the fandom has quieted down more so it’s not as common as it used to be. Welcome back to the fandom!

Just a note that Mod!Jam and I are taking over this blog.  We’ll probably leave the blog so far pretty much untouched, but we are very willing and able to answer any questions or concerns as soon as possible.

We’ve both been in this fandom for a number of years so hopefully that will help.

So I discussed it with my co-admin, and she’s decided to take over the blog along with another friend. So yay, the blog stays. I’m leaving you in (mostly) good hands, and I hope they’re able to rejuvenate the blog.

With that, I bid you all adieu.

Anonymous asked: do you have a personal you can share or would you rather not give it out

My main is puelladespero. I warn you right now, my blog is hella SnK. I also have a co-admin, but I’ll leave it up to her if she wants to give her main.

hetadork asked: Um! Maybe leave this blog with just a message saying that you're not updating anymore? This blog still has a lot of useful comments and it would be nice if you could keep it for reference! Just deleting it seems like quite a waste, and even I still want to read some of the stuff here.

That’s pretty much what I had been doing, but I really just want to be rid of it at this point. I can’t even say I hold a lot of same feelings I did before (aside from the basic common sense ones of course), but a lot of it was also very opinion-based. And I’d also rather not continue getting asks for this blog. I just don’t have any need for it anymore, and it was made during a time of frustration for me, and now I’m just kind of apathetic. Sorry. I’m glad people liked the blog, but I no longer have any attachment to it.

Uhh. Sorry for the misfire.

Anyway, I just want to let you guys know that I’m planning on deleting this blog since at this point I’ve pretty much forgotten it’s existence. I figured I’d give a heads up first. This blog will be gone by the end of the night.

Anonymous asked: Hello, I love hetalia but I dislike yaoi. After some people found out I had people messaging me calling me a homophobe. I'm actually a bisexual female. But apparently because I have a distaste for yaoi I got hate. Do you have anything I could say or do to avoid this please? Thank you <3 (p.s I wasn't rude about the way I stated my distaste for yaoi. I was very gentle and polite as possible with it.)

I’m sorry you were attacked for your personal preferences. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with such preferences as we’re all different and like different things.

Perhaps you could say something like, “I understand other people like it, but I’m not really into ___.” It might not sound as strong as the word “dislike” (not that “dislike” is really a strong word anyway, but…).

Honestly though, if you get hate messages for that sort of thing, the best thing to do is ignore it. Click the ignore button on the messages. If someone sends hate over your opinion, they’re probably not worth your time to reply to.

Anonymous asked: I just wanted to ask, what do you think about cosplaying a nation in their national outfit? Would anyone take it offensively or...?

This is an extremely late reply. Honestly this all depends on the outfit, the situation/location and people who are present. It comes down to the cosplayer’s best judgement. Think about where you’re going to be and who’s going to be there. Like some previous events where Hetalia cosplayers were at or near a war memorial. That is definitely an inappropriate area to wear such a thing.

There’s always a chance that the outfit may offend somebody, you can’t always make everyone happy, but limiting where and when you wear such a thing can help lower the chances of offense.

Anonymous asked: This happened to my boyfriend. We were at a con and people kept calling him Germany. When: 1) he does not like hetalia 2). He's not cosplay as germany. Then he would get bitched by the people he polietly said he is not a fan of hetalia.

Let me make this simple for everyone:

1. Don’t give out nicknames without consent from the person, especially when you don’t know them personally. It’s okay if you say something like, “You remind me of [character] from [anime],” but don’t be pushy, it makes people uncomfortable.

2. It’s okay if someone doesn’t like a series you love. Just like it’s okay if there’s another series you aren’t a fan of.

Please don’t be rude to people who don’t like the same things you do. It doesn’t win you, or your fandoms, any points.

rude much? Mod: Jam
