If it was Hetalia

If it was Hetalia

I was watching a music video about the Nordic countries from Hetalia, and couldn’t help but wonder what kind of relationship my characters would have if they were paired off like in Hetalia.

Needless to say, the dynamics would be a lot different. And poor Iceland is all alone. :XD:

Watch it here --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD5ImtmTT-w

A little video I made. It’s just a series of pictures, not an animation, but I hope you’ll think it’s funny anyway. All I can say is, “Don’t annoy Finland when he is being creative” :XD:

Norway on guitar
Denmark on drums
Iceland on bass
Sweden on electronic keyboard
Finland on Sweden’s electronic keyboard

Yes, I know the music is horrible and the video is boring at first, but I strongly suggest you watch it to the end. This is all about Finland. :D

People have asked for a more realistic version of the Nordic countries from my comic for longer than I can remember, so here they are. High differences and all. Enjoy.

From left to right: Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Meet my Sister

Meet my Sister

It's a girl thing. You boys wouldn't understand it.

Anyway, here’s the boys introducing their sisters to each other. All countries have a sibling of the opposite sex. This came to be because the stereotypical Swedish woman is radically different from the stereotypical Swedish man. In fact, she is the complete opposite of everything the Swedish man stands for, so Sweden is not particular proud of her.

For gods sake, Sweden! Didn't you know not to touch Finland when you are dressed in drag and he is dressed as demon som hell?! :XD:
And you don't have to fear Finland, Denmark. Your problem is Greenland, who is always there, in the dark, waiting for your weak moment...

Hehe, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark dressed as the singers who won for their country last time in the Eurovision Song Contest.
And in Iceland's case, dressed as the singer who almost won.
And in Greenland's case, dressed as his suppressor's winner.

Norway is of course dressed as Alexander Rybak who won this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiH4BFTELME
Sweden is dressed as Charlotte Nilsson who won in 1999. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qe1NNxeN7w
Denmark and Greenland are dressed as The Olsen Brothers who won in 2000. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEwlSyd7DH4

Eurovision Song Contest

Eurovision Song Contest

The Eurovision Song Contest is serious business...In some places.

So Norway won this year, with Iceland in second place. People in Sweden and Denmark were all like, “Damit! We wanted to win! But yay! Our Norwegian brother won instead!”. The Danes were thoroughly pissed that Sweden didn’t give us a single point this year though, because it’s a bit of an unspoken rule that the Scandinavian countries vote for each other. Ah, Eurovision is always so much fun. :XD:

For those who don’t know, Norway won with this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiH4BFTELME
Iceland who came in second place had this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcXCjC1Yijg

They’re finally here! Finland and Iceland (and Germany)!

The joke behind this is that everybody agrees that Sweden, Norway and Denmark make up Scandinavia, but some say that Finland and Iceland are part of it too. Most people in Sweden, Norway and Denmark doesn’t consider them to be part of Scandinavia though.
No invitation for you!

The Finnish stereotype is a masculine drunk mute with a knife. I had to read up on this because Denmark don’t have a lot to do with Finland, but when I read the description I knew I had to include him sooner or later. :XD:

Icelanders are considered to be more beautiful than other Nordic people. They also see themselves as risk-takers, who love extreme sports, so I gave him some sporty cloth and sunglasses, and little sparkles to emphasise his prettiness. :)

I've read that when Germans go to America they often get yelled at and called Nazis. Most people here are way beyond that because we live right next to them and see them quite often. Instead our German stereotype is a loud guy with really bad hair and cloth, who loves sausages.
My father’s sister married a German, so I did everything in my power not to make the character look like him. :XD:
