Summary: Ace pilot America is on a mission for the World Military when a chance encounter with a group of sky-pirates leads him to team up with their captain, England, against a malevolent group that wants to fill the sky with zeppelins. [USxUK- Steampunk AU]
Chapter Summary: Did he really want things to be normal again?

Did he want to return to the military, and have to follow every order dutifully, for fear of them suspecting him of criminal activities again? Did he want to never be able to question them again, because surely even if the judge decreed him not guilty, they’d still keep an extra close watch on him?
Author's Note: A few fanarts! America, England, Russia, Belarus, Lithuania by Akira-chan01, AmericaxEngland by Creepynurse, America and Switzerland, both by Chao-lover2. Thank you so much! ♥

England smacked his cheek lightly. “No faking it, all right? You don’t need to force a smile for me.”  )

Pairing: AmericaxEngland (Also: GreecexJapan)
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance/Humor/Drama/Alternate Universe/Action
Word Count: 4,650
Summary: Arthur is a guardian angel who feels as if he's at the bottom of the heavenly ladder. Alfred is Freedom Star, a young superhero at the top of his game. When their paths cross, Alfred's life (and Arthur's afterlife), will never be the same.
Chapter Summary: But after he’d taken a lengthy shower, he took me down to his base and we watched a film together on his… rather massive screen. I’d never actually been in a movie theater before, or even seen a film from start to finish, but considering how huge his screen was, I imagined that I was having a similar experience. He made popcorn and carried his couch down into the base (with one hand, bloody showoff), and showed me a film that I could best describe as a… rollicking fantasy adventure, and with a rather prominent love story at that.

It’s not precisely what I would have expected from him, but when I mentioned that to him he turned away, his cheeks flushing pink and mumbled something about how “you told me before that you liked to write stuff like this so…”
Author's Note: I said five chapters, but it looks like it's going to be a bit longer than that. Sorry for the delay. :)

Alfred exhaled deeply, sliding his eyes closed and trying to calm his heartbeat. He was a hero. He could handle something as simple as Arthur undressing a mere foot or two behind him... )

Summary: Arthur is spending a normal summer at his father's beach house in Cape Cod, when he encounters the extraordinary in the form of an enthusiastic young merman named Alfred, who holds an intense curiosity for Arthur. Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: “…He’s not entirely human. Half human, rather. I… suppose that would be the best way to describe it. And that’s why I asked you about the sight and all. Because… well I HAVE seen something out of the ordinary. In fact, I’m dating it and…” He smacked his forehead. “Oh Christ, I’m babbling, aren’t I? Better to do that than stop and hear you pronounce me nutters but… yes, it appears this Chime Child thing has returned because I am…”

“…Arthur?”

“Dating a merman.”
Author's Note: I don't really have any excuse for lack of updates recently outside of epic writer's block. Hopefully I'm over it now. I have received four beautiful fanarts since my last update! ArthurxAlfred (with seals!) by [livejournal.com profile] abarero, ArthurxAlfred by [livejournal.com profile] colevic, ArthurxAlfred by Chao-lover2, and Alfred by [livejournal.com profile] lumossolarum. Amazing artists are utterly amazing!

Arthur was… something special. And if a hero like him thought someone was special, that meant a lot! )

Hey everyone. I was just doing some cleanup here, and I realized that I haven't posted about affiliations here.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO AFFILIATE/LINK EXCHANGE WITH THIS WRITING JOURNAL, PLEASE COMMENT HERE!

Just pop a link to [livejournal.com profile] cosmic_dare into your userinfo or affiliates post or wherever, and I'll link you in my userinfo.

I did remove some old affiliates, but those were just:
1- People who did not have me actually linked anywhere as an affiliate.
2- People who had not updated in over two years.

If I removed you for either of these reasons and you want to be added back, please let me know (although in the case of number one, you'll need to actually add a link XD).

I'll also affiliate with art journals! ♥

Summary: Ace pilot America is on a mission for the World Military when a chance encounter with a group of sky-pirates leads him to team up with their captain, England, against a malevolent group that wants to fill the sky with zeppelins. [USxUK- Steampunk AU]
Chapter Summary: He thought, in the light, that it was even more apparent that the man had been crying. England could see poorly concealed tear tracks on his cheeks. His chest tightened. What had made him cry?

And he felt anger well up within him also. If someone had hurt America to the point that he was acting like this, Captain Kirkland very much wanted to give them a visit.
Author's Note: I've been sick and vacationing, and thus I've only been able to get exchange fics done for the last month or so for the most part. Hope to get on a better update schedule for ALL my chapter fics now. A couple of fanarts: Prussia, Belarus, and America by Chao-Lover2, and Skeleton Fleet of the Sky and England, both by Sallydawn!

Summary: He shook his head. Of course England would say yes. But nervousness was still pooling in his gut. He was a hero, and heroes shouldn’t be so worried about saying four simple words and holding a ring out! England loved him, and he loved England. There was no reason for him to say no... right?
Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] sillyputtie at the [livejournal.com profile] hamburger_st summer exchange! And just as a note, this journal now has one hundred watchers. Thank you so, so much. ♥

Summary: Arthur is a guardian angel who feels as if he's at the bottom of the heavenly ladder. Alfred is Freedom Star, a young superhero at the top of his game. When their paths cross, Alfred's life (and Arthur's afterlife), will never be the same.
Chapter Summary: I’d seen superheroes with the power of flight before, or with flight rings or whatever. But there was a difference between that and… wings. This wasn’t a superpower, but instead something a lot more… magical.
Author's Note: This is the second half. The first half is posted here. As always, feedback and comments are very much appreciated. For those wanting to see some good stuff between America and England, this is where it really starts. :)

Okay, I guess he’d never had pizza before he died. Now that was tragic... )

Summary: Arthur is a guardian angel who feels as if he's at the bottom of the heavenly ladder. Alfred is Freedom Star, a young superhero at the top of his game. When their paths cross, Alfred's life (and Arthur's afterlife), will never be the same.
Chapter Summary: Plus, Alfred considered, he had an angel staying at his house. A bonafide guy from heaven with wings and a halo and stuff! It was worth a little bit of trouble for that. And besides, a hero like him could hardly allow Arthur to stay on the streets alone or whatever.
Author's Note: Oh boy. Basically, this chapter ended up MONSTER LONG. With coding, I was pretty sure it would break the character limit, so I decided to split it into two. I will post the second half within the next day or two. It's finished. I just... want to do some last minute editing on it. Also, I have received two gorgeous fanarts for this story! America and England by SobaFanaticofDOOm and America and England by [livejournal.com profile] socialholic.

Chapter Summary: “I know you want a world without heroes or whatever, Lithuania but…” He clenched his eyes. “This isn’t that world, okay? There are really awful people and there are good people and… okay maybe there are even a few people who aren’t bad or good, really.”

“America…”

“So let ME be a hero, okay?” he continued. “It’s what I want to be, all right?”
Author's Note: Um basically this chapter is even bigger than the last one, and it's also the first chapter of this fic to reach (and surpass) 4k? I hope that extra length makes up for the delay in updating. Even though this chapter has been planned in detail from the beginning, I struggled a lot with writing it. A couple of fanworks: First, this gorgeous AmericaxEngland by [livejournal.com profile] socialholic. Secondly, several months ago a group of APH fans asked if they could cosplay the story! You can see their TOTALLY EPIC PHOTOSHOOT here.

Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: He was dating a merman. Three days ago, the mere idea of Alfred even existing had been a preposterous one. Now he was, for the third day in a row, spending time alone with him. Whether it was sitting on a dock or on the back of a yacht, it was just the two of them with only the sea as their company. In retrospect, it was… rather intimate.

Hello all!

I've seen a couple of other authors do this, and I thought it might be fun. I've created a formspring account for me as an author. You can ask me anything over there that has to do with my fics or fandom. Curious about something or want something cleared up? Go for it. The only thing I ask is that you do not go over there and just ask for updates. I'm trying really hard to update everything in a timely fashion lately. Oh and be nice, of course. Otherwise, I trust you all!

You do not need to be a registered member at formspring to ask. If you are, you're welcome to follow the account if you wish.

Author's Note: This is being written for [livejournal.com profile] aph_fluffathon! Originally it was supposed to be a lengthy oneshot, but it got away from me a bit so it ended up longer. But [livejournal.com profile] aph_fluffathon ends in August, so that's the deadline for finishing this. A new chapter of Cerulean should be posted early next week, then a new You Can't Take the Sky from Me. Quick Edit: I've gotten a lot of questions about Hero Frequency. I still love this story a lot, and I can promise that, barring some unforeseen disaster, it will be finished this summer. I have a pretty detailed fic schedule written out for the summer, and it's a priority on it. But in the meantime, I hope you enjoy this story!

Chapter Summary: “Why is he going after the sky?” America’s lips formed a thin line, and his teeth were pressed together in anger.

“If he controls the sky, he controls the world,” Lithuania said. “People still travel by sea, and people still travel by land, of course. But if you own the sky? You’re above all of that.”

“The sky is at the top of the world,” America added, his voice quiet.
Author's Note: This is one of those chapters that has just been so vivid in my mind since I started the fic. Let's just say it's an important one. It's also the longest chapter to date. I hope you all enjoy it!

Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: And there was a feeling of dread in Arthur’s stomach, because he just knew that Francis was going to bring up Alfred. No doubt when all his obnoxious friends were still there, so he could be further embarrassed. With a huff and a curse, Arthur pushed himself off the couch and left the room for the kitchen.

Author's Note: So I went out of town right after my last fic update, and then, upon returning, got super sick for like three weeks. Ack! Hopefully updates will be back to normal now...

Chapter Summary: “Say, you’re the one meeting with Kirkland, right?”

America’s cheeks pinked. “Y-yeah! How did you know?”

Hungary shrugged, the poofy short sleeves of her dress moving with her shoulders. “He radioed me and told me to keep a watch for you. He mentioned that you were a military man. Used to be, this place was the pub for pirates. That was back when my parents and grandparents owned it. But… there aren’t many pirates anymore, so we don’t get them as often.”

Over one summer, they'll fall in love. Over one summer, their lives will change forever.
Chapter Summary: Why was it so hard for him to smile? Arthur was so weird. He knew most humans didn’t act like Arthur. At least, the ones he saw out on their boats were usually pretty jovial.

They also, far more often than not had other people with them, unlike Arthur, who came out in the yacht by himself. Alfred sighed inwardly, gazing up at the sky and wrapping his fingers around the camera. Pleasantly warm breezes skimmed across the top of the waves, causing the boat to rock gently.

“Hey Arthur, don’t you have any friends?”

“Mind… what?” America asked, his throat feeling rather dry.

Japan leaned forward, cocking his head to one side and giving him a curious look. “America, are you perhaps, in love with this England?”

Chapter Summary: “Well get to it. Did you radio me for no reason, you git?”

“Jeez, England. Be patient…”

“Patience is a virtue you hardly have yourself, so don’t expect it of me.”

America frowned. He wanted to ask England, he really did. And to be honest, England had sounded sort of expectant, like he was waiting for America to ask about their… get together.

“S-so about that date,” America finally said, pretending to be casual, although his heart was racing.
