New Blog Post: ウィンウィンハロウィン
Don’t worry it is not dangerous as well
I tried to make a fanart related to Himaruya-san’s updated post image of the Italy brothers being cool… with water guns (????)
because I love it!!!
I bet that in addition to those guns being water pistols, the Italy brothers are totally smoking candy cigars.
America and North Italy have an okay relationship. He finds North Italy amusing to listen to and watch, and doesn’t mind spending a bit of time with him here and there. North Italy feels the same. He’s used to overbearing personalities, and he lets most things roll off of him, so America is pretty okay with him… sometimes. That being said, America gets irritated by North Italy if he has to spend a lot of time with him. The antics that he found amusing at first start to sort of get on his nerves, and it just stops being as funny to him. Eventually he does want to have more grounded conversations with people, and Italy tends to be so everywhere when conversing. He’s less flighty than North Italy, and the excessive flightiness is something that can frustrate him a bit. For his part, North Italy sort of thinks that America doesn’t pay enough attention to him when they see each other, which is probably true.
That being said, America actually really kind of digs South Italy. Romano isn’t above insulting him of course, but America finds his insults funny for the most part, because let’s face it they kind of are. And if Romano does manage to hit below the belt, America shoots an insult right back, and it ends up pretty equal. America, let’s face it, is pretty used to dealing with people who are irritable and tsundere. He finds the attitude kind of endearing and amusing, and he likes to poke at them. Both of them are used to being frustrated by being viewed as young and being underestimated (although Romano is much older, he spent like 1,000 years as a child), and it’s something they can sort of bond over. America sees a bit more of his own country’s Italian culture in Romano than he does North Italy. And they spent a fair amount of time together in the 1920s. It was Romano that perfected America’s Italian, and it was Romano that he spent most of his time drinking and visiting speakeasies with during the Prohibition era. And America also helped Romano perfect his English. They taught each other a fair amount about each other’s culture (language, food, history, etc.), and did so in a very bickery, snarky manner, but while also finding camaraderie in each other. And yes they ‘bitched’ about Spain and England, but of course with secret fondness laced within said bitching. Both of them caught this fondness in the words of other, but refused to acknowledge it in themselves. Because they fail like that.
