So, my desktop is still down and I'm trying not to stress about it.
So I'm going back to the list of prompts that I asked for--geez, almost a month ago and I want to start writing pirate!Spain, which I think will be all kinds of fun. I don't often write for Spain--but I would like to start trying to get him. It will be good practice for when I get my desktop back up and can continue on my WIP (which I have decided to call "It's a Wonderful World". Because. I dunno. I was outside doing yard work the other day and that song was stuck in my head and I suddenly stopped and went, "HEY!") It was sliefoxx
that asked for pirate!Spain--in a fic trade where she wrote about bitty!Canada and France
for me. So I need to get on that. (Oh, I never asked her--if she wanted it as a gen fic or as a shipping one. Huh. Need to do that too.)
But, in the meantime, while I think of how to write Spain, I just randomly started writing about Canada during D-Day (June 6, 1944--Normandy invasion) and I kinda wanna do maybe England/Canada because I've never done it and I rarely see it. But I also rarely see America/Canada.
I don't suppose anyone has any thoughts about that? Since it's from Canada's POV, I kind of like the idea of it being England/Canada. And it's always interesting to have other characters from the outside looking at America--as I do a lot of my fics from America's POV. So it's cool to see how he's viewed from the outside sometimes. It will be good practice for later.
Man, I hope me writing all this doesn't make me seem presumptuous and arrogant. I just wanted to put some thoughts down about writing.
Anyway, I think of Spain as being...well, cheerful and informal and very casual and laid-back. Very, very aware of his history but doesn't obsess over it--tries to let the past go. Absolutely deadly with a long axe, fantastic sailor, almost recklessly brave--and likes to fight the bulls. Very stubborn, doesn't succumb easily to torture or interrogation. Has a fierce love/hate with both France and Prussia and believes he knows them best--or at least better than most.
