I remember your translation, and the comments it got made me giddy with joy! I bookmarked the original forum post, but it apparently disappeared... :(
But I had no idea I'd started a wave like this! I was aware that there was a handful of English speaking fans that I'd managed to seduce (mostly because every now and then, the kink meme
gets requests for Brandenburg/Prussia that are NOT left by me). But the Chinese fans are a completely new experience for me!
Would you really be willing to translate some of the fics for me? I wouldn't want to trouble you too much, and the translation machine is enough that I can get a rough general understanding of the text (the only big problem is the copy & pasting, gives me finger cramps after a while XD)
The popularity of the name is actually a little embarrassing, because after writing "Civil Union", the human name I personally use for Brandenburg has changed several times. First I called him Hartwin, then I called him Wendel (after the Wends
). Then I decided he's a Sorb
and called him Branislaw, as it matches "Braniborska", the Upper Sorbian name for Brandenburg. And to add insult to injury, I changed his eyes from purple to gray, just because there aren't that many Hetalia characters with gray eyes.
I'm an indecisive moron. *shame*
I've tried writing more Brandenburg/Prussia, but it hasn't gone very well. The only two pieces I've managed to finish were stupidly short and not good at all compared to "Civil Union".
". Contains creepy insane Brandenburg.
"Cross of God
". Ridiculously short, but I like it better than "Wisteria". Contains a picture of Brandenburg (which I did not draw, I just stole a screenshot of Poland from this video
and edited it quickly and badly).
