Why, hello there (have you gotten lost?)! My name is Lizzy, but most of you know me as . You may be asking, "Lizzy, what the hell is this?! " Well, I shall tell you.
This is a group that my friend ElusiveFanatic and I created together. It is a group for all those Hetalia fans that have been told that they are either 'weeaboos' or 'hetards' for enjoying Hetalia. We ourselves have been called 'Hetards' so we decided, we should do something about it.
And that's how this baby was born.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I'M A HETARD?!!
If you reference Hetalia constantly, you're a Hetard. If you take one look at a world map and burst out laughing, you're a Hetard. If you can't stop drawing your fave country as a human, you're a Hetard. If you pair landmasses together, you're a Hetard. If you joined any history class (Social Studies, Humanities, History, Geography, etc) because you think Hetalia has given you enough information that will help you ace the class, you're a Hetard. If you laugh at the naive fool that has no clue what Hetalia is, you're a douche.
So now you ask me, "Lizzy, where can I join this totally self-righteous group?" And I'd be forced to tell you, "You've got to hold on a second. We need to go over the rules hon."
1. RESPECT ALL OTHER GROUP MEMBERS! I can't tell you how many times someone has come to my profile and droned on and on about how horrible my stories are because they aren't about their fave pairing. Honestly? We don't pull that shit here. We are s, and honey badgers don't take no shit. If you respect the rules, you will be a honey badger.
If someone decides to be a total please tolerate it. If you respond, you'll be "feeding the troll". Let them rant. Let them judge. Let them hate, because all they will be doing is hatin'. I'm pretty sure you've got better things to do than spend your time fighting a useless internet battle. But, for some unfortunate reason, you can't help but reply to this troll, please do it in a calm manner. Trolls absolutely lurve it when you tell them to "shut the fuck up". You'd only be adding fuel to the burning keg (... Wait? What?) CONTROL YOURSELF! I know you can.
2. DON'T BE A DICK. If you see something you don't like, click the backspace button. Or the little red X at the top of your screen. Nobody likes a flamer. If we spot you, we'll ask you to stop. If you continue, you'll get a warning (just one) and if you still continue, you're getting banned . No if, and's or buts about it.
3. SUBMIT IT TO THE RIGHT FOLDER. If you don't, we'll deny you and ask you to resend it to the correct folder. Nothing personal. It just gets annoying.
4. MATURE CONTENT. If it's not meant for the young-in's eyes, slap it on there. I write mature stuff myself, so I know how important it is to have mature content. It's not just our rule, but dA's. Nobody likes to get banned, but you will be if you don't respect the rules. Also, if we think your work needs mature content, we'll go to the deviation and ask you to put one on there.
5. IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, ASK. We don't bite (much). You can send us a nice little note, or you can ask directly on the profile page. Notes are more sufficient, but whatever floats your boat.
WHERE CAN I SIGN UP?!!
Well, it's obvious that you want to join this group now, so here's how you do it.
Go to the top of this page. There's a button labelled "Join"
Anyone is allowed to join, but if you join purely for the purpose of pissing others off, actions will be made.
WHERE DO I UPLOAD?!!
Now you ask, "What type of folders are there? Where can I upload my masterpiece?" I say, "Here's where." and gesture downwards.
Featured: Every week or two, four drawings (art or writing) are picked to be featured. These drawings are not always based on skill, but mostly the style, effort, and creativity the artist put into it! So, don't fret. Do your best, try hard, take suggestions and you may be picked! These people will receive points and llamas (won't say how much). They will also be featured in the "Top three fave artists" widget.
Critique Me: For those who really want to improve, you can submit your pictures here where they will be critiqued by your fellow Hetards.
How Am I Doing? - WIP's. This is where you can submit sketches, lineart, or projects that are only half way complete. This folder is to help guide you to make your art better so you can make changes before you finish your amazing piece.
Italy, Germany and Japan. Nyotalia goes in the Singles or Pairing folder. Nekotalia is fine.
America, England, France, China, Russia and the temporary ally, Canada. Same rule as Axis Powers.
Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland. Also, Sealand is allowed in this folder, as well as the OHC folder. Same as Axis Powers.
Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia. Same as Axis Powers.
Bad Touch Trio
Prussia, Spain, France. Same as... look, I'm pretty sure you've got it by now.
Please note me if I've missed any or made any mistakes here.
Single Character Folders:
Only one character. Numero uno. If another character makes an appearance in the background, that's fine, but not as main. That's what the "pairing" folder is for. Nyotalia is allowed in this folder.
This could mean that the characters are together as a couple, or are just hanging out. Yaoi, Yuri or Hetero, Whatever floats your boat (that doesn´t mean you start bashing the person just because they ship couples you don´t like). It must have two or more characters in this folder. It could be an OC and the character, or character and character. Nyotalia (genderbend) is also accepted, as well as Nekotalia (animal). OC/OC is not accepted. Sorry. x2
REMEMBER NO BASHING OTHER PEOPLE FOR SHIPPING A COUPLE YOU DON´T LIKE (seriously we had enough with the USUK vs FrUK wars..)
This folder right here is my personal domain, so I want it to run very smoothly (I'm watching you!)
Fan Fiction - One Shots
For things that will not be continued. We don't care how many "parts" it has, as long as it's a oneshot.
Fan Fiction - Chapters
For series. This folder... this one must be done accurately. NO MISTAKES!! D:<
Fan Fiction - WIPs
Exactly what the title says. For Works In Progress. Not sure what else can be said.
OHC (Other Hetalia Characters):
For any other Hetalia characters that don't fit the bill. They have to be existing Hetalia characters, ones that have shown up or are important in the anime. Example: Switzerland, Belarus, Korea, Hong Kong, Ukraine, etc. This folder does not include OC's. That has a folder of its own. Same rule applies for every other folder regarding Nyo.
Well Researched or Self Insert OCs:
For you Hetalia OC (example: If you draw what you think your city would look like). If you've drawn yourself in an Hetalian scenario, it classifies you as an OC.
Congrats. MARY- SUES OR UNRESEARCHED COUNTRY OC's ARE NOT ALLOWED! I cannot stand them and they will not be tolerated. We're not that retarded. If you don't know what a Mary-Sue is, note me and I will explain it in great detail.
Further info: By "un-researched" we mean (for example) a whitewashed blonde Caribbean OC, or a purple eyed Madagascar OC, seriously if you're going to make an OC, make it accurate (and the relationships between the OC and canon character HISTORICALLY ACCURATE. Also, the type of relationship must be right. An example of this: An Alaskan OC shouldn't be in love with Russia, but should be annoyed at him for selling him/her out). We're not expecting a whole freaking essay on the country's culture but at least do a little research to get the design right.
OC- Group (three or more)
OC- Work in Progress
For the comedic side of you. You can upload comics, and/or manga's here.
If you are looking at your work and say to yourself, "My piece of gold sludge still doesn't fit in any of these groups!" Then send it to the 'Other' folder. It's here for a reason.
Bases (yes, bases are allowed)
3P characters (also known as the infamous ¨Colour Police¨)
This folder is for any Hetalia related thing that involves a crossover of another show/anime/movie/etc.
Anime: Hetalia/ Full Metal Alchemist
Cartoon: Hetalia/ Adventure Time
Show: Hetalia/ How I Met Your Mother
Movie: Hetalia/ Horrible Bosses
Disney: Hetalia/ Hercules
Games: Hetalia/ Legend of Zelda
(Olympic related pictures go in the Olympic folder. But the fanfics go in the Fanfiction folder).
Yes, I made another folder. I just couldn't figure out where to put them. So anyways this folder is for any Hetalia characters that you've drawn with themselves (male, female, child form, cat form, etc).
Any written work will not go here. It will continue to go to the Fanfiction folder.
It... it had to be made.
This folder is for all the parodies of Mary-Sue type/ Weeaboo things e.i. parodies. It's basically a joke folder.
Like the title says, it's for KAWAII DESU11!1 <3 things.
Mary-Sues are still not allowed (unless it's a troll). Troll Reader Inserts are also allowed, so put your trollfics in the KAWAII DESU FOLDER instead of the Fanfiction folder.
NOTE: DO NOT POST ANY CUTESY THINGS THAT ARE SERIOUS IN THERE!!
Pretty self explanatory. If it moves or has a moving thing in the picture, you put it in this here folder. Got it? Good.
Yeah, so apparently people didn't get that 2P's were supposed to go into the Other folder, so I've made it easy for you guys. They get their own folder now! Anything to do with 2 Players goes into this folder. If it's in comic folder it continues to go to the Comic and Manga folder. Same with if it's fanfiction (goes to Fanfic folder).
I think it's self-explanitory what gets submitted to this folder.
Female versions of male Hetalia characters
Male versions of female Hetalia characters
Female Nekotalia (cat) versions of male Hetalia characters
Male Nekotalia (cat) versions of female Hetalia characters
Female 2P versions of male Hetalia characters
Female 2P versions of male Hetalia characters
Things that don't go in here:
Regular girl characters (Hungary, Ukraine, etc)
Their regular selves
Basically the opposite of their normal selves
Folder for these:
It seems people are confused about where to put these, so I made a folder for it.
Folder for Hetards that want to help other Hetards, through tutorials.
People have been complaining that this needs to have its own folder, so now it does. Anything to do with a character in animal form goes here now.
For the kid version of themselves. If the picture has a main character included in it, that's okay. It can be sent to either the Pairing folder or here
Where do I put this?:
If you aren't sure where to put your work, send it to this folder
I noticed that not many groups have this. So I added it. This folder is for anything that has to do with Commissions. Commission lists, commission art/ fanfiction, asking for someone to buy your commission, etc. Requests also accepted in this folder.
For... gifs. I honestly don't know how else to explain this
For Ask blogs. Not comics
Anything to do with the Olympics. Doesn't matter what year.
For the Fifa World Cup. Doesn't matter what year. Doesn't matter what gender they are or if they're kids. As long as it has to do with the World Cup. Fanfictions go into Fanfiction folder.
For screencap redraws and "Draw this again" meme's
For the Hetards PROMPT of the month
IF YOU'RE CONFUSED ABOUT WHERE TO SEND YOUR WORK, CLICK THIS LINKY LINK! hetards.deviantart.com/journal…
LONG, THIS MESSAGE IS LONG
READER INSERTS ARE NOT ALLOWED!! I apologize, but we've seen way too many damn reader inserts on dA and I'm pretty sure our members would be annoyed with seeing it in their message boards. You're free to submit them to the favorite folder, but that's it. So now that you've read our Terms and Agreement bullcrap, you are ready to start! Go ahead and press that little "Join" button. We shall see you soon. ;D
