young!America starts to understand what it means to be a colony- when he meets Mexico and Brazil for the first time.
I kinda headcanon America as being quite a precocious and intelligent child, who grew up really fast. So, the thing is seeing how things were in Brazil and Mexico where industries were a lot more extractive and things were more authoritarian, he started to realise how although England treated him well, in some ways, England saw him as a mine of riches that would further enrich the empire. Not quite a “family” or “brother” the same way humans would.
(Also, I really just wanted to draw more new world babies!) Btw, I imagine young!Mexico and Brazil would have known each other quite well even if they were separately controlled by Spain and Portugal, because of the Iberian Union- and Brazil’s the tallest here because he’s the oldest of the three of them. The latin americans are my own design, but inspired by the latin hetalia community.
So I just need to get this off my chest:
For me David Kawena from Lilo and Stitch is the ultimate Disney prince because he is there for Nani AND Lilo and even Stitch despite everything that’s going on in their lives. They’re going through some tough stuff. Their parents die and all of the sudden Nani has to be a mom to her sister who is socially awkward and depressed and that’s hard enough as it is and then she gets her this ‘dog’ and everything gets harder and even though she can’t return David’s feelings he’s still there for them through everything. Even aliens. He’s amazing. I was watching Lilo and Stitch with my niece the other day and I cried watching David go through it all. He is the perfect guy. Like I just get emotional thinking about him.
Imagine if you had someone like David in your life - male or female. You would feel like a prince/princess even if you were living with next to nothing.
David is the ultimate Disney prince - even though he isn’t a Disney prince. He should be considered one.
Disney rant - over.
Reminder that David:
-has no curse to break
-does not have a deadline/ultimatum to find a wife
-has no financial/social gain from being with Nani
-is told 1/4 of the way into the movie that Nani is too busy to worry about dating him AND PROCEEDS TO BE HELPFUL AND SUPPORTIVE ANYWAY.
David’s not a Disney prince because he’s too fucking awesome for that title.
AN ACTUAL NON-IRONIC,NON-SELF DESCRIBING NICE GUY.
A PROPER HUMAN BEING.
for a second when i read i have to get this off my chest i thought it was a pun about the castle on lilo
being against gay marriage does in fact 100% make you homophobic sorry
Actually Curitiba-SC and Rio de Janeiro city are flertting, São Paulo city don’t like it and a lot of Prefectures and others offical page are interacting.
This is so cool.
An anon requested me BrAgr for the color palette and since I have no idea how is the dynamic between them I did some research.
And it turns out my problem now is I don’t know which Brazil I should draw, the Hottie (stirringwind’s) or the Cutie (Latin Hetalia’s) because I like them both （´；ω・｀）
HinataNeko’s Brazil is most accurate, but stirringwind’s just won my heart at first sight.
I love both <3
And I noticed something…
so this is the first time we see the king of Atlantis, right?
Then he says this while his wife is drawn into the heart of Atlantis:
Notice how he’s not looking away. The next time we see the king, he is blind.
DOES THIS MEAN HE LOOKED INTO THE HEART OF ATLANTIS, RISKED LOSING HIS SIGHT, JUST SO HE COULD SEE HIS WIFE ONE LAST TIME??????
JUST FUCKING STOP RIGHT THERE
