Of UNO and Thunderstorms

By Meepalicious

Romance / Adventure

Chapter 1

Nothing ever goes according to plan during a thunderstorm…


Author's Note added 11/4/14: Hello all! It's been a long time, I think two years, since I began writing this story. I've recently been invited here to Inkitt, courtesy of Theresa. She asked me to publish my fanfictions here and specifically mentioned how much she enjoyed this story in particular. I am very thankful for her invite and flattered by the praise I have received from her on this work. This story is complete, and I am in the process of writing a sequel, so please bear with me while I post each story on Inkitt, as this was originally on Also, I realize the amount of mistakes there are and will be in this story, though I choose to keep them because as time goes on, they show the amount of progress I as a writer have made in the last two years. Thank you, have a nice day. 


Author's note: Welcome to my new fanfiction! I am Meepalicious! This fanfiction is going to be a self insert, just a heads up. Hopefully, this won't be one of those typical 'Fellowship magically arrives on Earth' stories. The original characters in this story are strongly based on real people so I don't want to hear any Mary Sue shit. By the way, a good majority of this will be from Olympia or Kate's POV. This is because Olympia is me and Kate is my own character so it will be easiest to write from these points of view. READ AND REVIEW!

Chapter One

Olympia's POV

I was lying upside down on my couch with my elbow length dirty blonde hair sprawled across the bottom of the couch and some of the floor. My two best friends were sitting on either side of me on the floor. We were playing UNO in my living room/basement during our sleepover at mine and my twenty two year old sister's house as our way of celebrating our high school graduation. A summer thunderstorm was raging through our small town in New York. Francesca put down a blue skip card, causing me to miss my turn. "Damn you." I whispered, trying to juggle my seventeen cards. Francesca rolled her brown eyes and pushed her glasses back up her nose. Natalie put down her final card, thus winning the game. "WOOT!" she yelled. I glared at her with my green eyes and she stuck her tongue out at me. "What do you want to do now?" Francesca asked, pushing some of her slightly wavy shoulder length dark brown hair out of her face. Natalie shrugged and I tried to sit up on the couch, failing and falling on Natalie. "What the hell Kochie?" she gave me a look and used my last name. "I fell off the couch, sue me." I ruffled her straight, mid back length sandy blonde hair and she glared at me with her hazel eyes.

"Who wants to watch a movie?" Francesca asked. "Me! The Awesome Prussia wants to watch a movie!" I answered. "What about you Germany?" Francesca turned to Natalie and used the Hetalia nickname we'd given her. "Francey Pants, do you really need to ask that?" Natalie raised an eyebrow. In case you were wondering, we'd all given each other Hetalia nicknames. I was Prussia and Romano, Francesca was France, Natalie was Germany and my sister Kate was England and Italy. "What movie are we watching then?" I asked, getting my glasses case from its spot on the shelf of my living room and putting my glasses on. "We should watch Lord of the Rings!" Francesca shouted. "Yes!" Natalie and I chorused. "Should we wait for your sister to come back from walking the dog?" Natalie wondered. "Nah, she won't mind." I waved my hand dismissively and walked across the room to our wide screen T.V. and put the extended edition of The Fellowship of the Ring into the DVD player. "Natalie, can you get some popcorn please?" I smiled sweetly at my friend. Natalie groaned and went to the kitchen. I turned the air conditioner on and settled down on the couch. Francesca sat down at the turning point of our couch. My couch had a small turn in it and the piece turned so the rest of the couch came away from the wall. Natalie came back a few minutes later. "Popcorn delivery for Lord of the Rings nerds!" she smiled and sat down. I hit the 'play' button and the movie started.

But of course, nothing ever goes to plan very long where my friends and I are concerned. Right after the Fellowship was formed the T.V. started flickering to black and finally settled on almost deafening static. "What the bleep on a bleep sandwich with bleep on top and a side order of bleep is that?" Natalie exclaimed. "Do you have enough bleep in that meal?" I commented sarcastically. "No I don't think she does." Francesca smiled. "Oh shut it you two or I'll - NO! Blue screen of death!" Natalie stopped mid threat and stared at the T.V. I looked and saw that the screen had turned electric blue. "Nyeegh. What do we do now?" I groaned. "I don't freaking know!" Francesca flailed her arms in the air. "Try throwing something at it!" Natalie suggested. "I don't think that's going to work." I told her. She shrugged. Then, there was a loud clap of thunder and all the lights turned off for a minute. "You've got to be shitting me!" I yelled. "And this is why we called you Romano." Natalie said. "Bastard." I muttered. My friends laughed and the lights came back on. "Yay!" I clapped my hands.

"Oh my freaking God!" Natalie exclaimed. "What?" I turned back towards the T.V. It still had the blue screen of death, but now there were nine other people in my living room. Four of them were short and had hairy feet, another one was only a little bit taller and had a red beard, there was one with dark hair, one with strawberry blonde-ish hair, one with a gray hat and a staff and one with long blonde hair and pointy ears. Oh yeah, and they all had weapons. Wait a minute, pointy ears? "What the hell is going on here?" Francesca voiced my exact thought. "How am I supposed to know?" I whispered. "Uh, hi there." Natalie waved at the people. "Who are you?" I asked. The answer hit me before they even had a chance to speak. They're the Fellowship of the Ring. They all look like their movie counterparts. HOLY SHIT! "We could ask you the same question." The short guy with the red beard muttered. I glared at him. "I am Gandalf. My companions are Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Meriadoc Brandybuck, Peregrin Took, Aragorn son of Arathorn, Boromir of Gondor, Gimli son of Gloin and Legolas of the Woodland Realm." Gandalf introduced everyone. My friends and I nodded slowly. "Would you be so kind as to tell us your names and where we are?" Gandalf continued. I was the first to recover from the shock. "My name is Olympia Kochie, my friends here are Natalie Gittin," at this I gestured to Natalie, who waved. "and Francesca Adams." I said and pointed at Francesca. "You are now in the United States of America. In relation to Middle Earth, I have no idea where that would be." Francesca told them. I face-palmed, you'll see why in a minute.

"How do you know that we are from Middle Earth?" Aragorn looked skeptically at us. "Oh boy, how are we going to explain this one?" Francesca turned to me and Natalie. "Well you brought it up, so you should explain it." I told her. "In this world, Middle Earth and the people in it are just a story. This story is written in books and also portrayed in movies. Do you follow me so far?" Francesca explained. "What is a movie?" Pippin asked. "Well, do you see that?" I pointed to the T.V. "That is a T.V. and it plays stories on the screen. Almost like a play. Movies are stories that play on the T.V." I said. "We know about Middle Earth because we have watched the movies that were made about it. And Olympia has read the books so she knows more than me and Francesca do." Natalie joined our explanation. "Does that mean that you girls know the future?" Gandalf seemed alarmed. "Yes. But we're not going to tell you about it, because if you know you might do things differently." I crossed my arms. "Thus changing what the future should have been." Natalie added. "Did that make sense?" Francesca asked. "I hope so." I stated. "Now, I know you all must have questions so if you ask, we'll do our best to answer." I told them.

The next half hour or so was spent filling in the Fellowship about everything in our world. "What is that on your face?" Pippin asked at one point. "Pippin don't be rude." Sam scolded him. Natalie, Francesca and I started laughing. Francesca and I took off our glasses and showed them to the Fellowship. "These are called glasses. They help me and Olympia see because we can't see very well." Francesca explained. "I only need them to see distance, like the chalkboards at school. But I also have astigmatism, it makes my vision slightly blurry, so I wear them more than that. Francesca needs them all the time." I told them. "Why can you not see well?" Legolas asked. "I have absolutely no idea. My parents have glasses and so do a lot of people in my family, so I guess it's a genetic thing." I shrugged.

Just then Legolas cocked his head to the side like he was listening to something. "Someone is coming." He said. The Fellowship all get their weapons ready to fight. "No you can out the weapons down." Francesca told them nervously. "My sister's probably coming home from taking my puppy, Bella, for a walk." I explained. Sure enough, the front door opened up and my sister called down the stairs, "I'm home guys. Did you come up with something for dinner?" I bit my lip. We were supposed to come up with dinner ideas while Kate had been out. "Is macaroni and cheese okay with you guys?" I whispered to my friends. Their eyes lit up and they nodded. "Macaroni and cheese for dinner! We have like twenty something boxes. Also, you might want to come downstairs." I called up the stairs to my sister. What, we keep a lot of macaroni and cheese in the house. Bella started barking and she came running down the stairs, Kate following close behind her. Bella skidded to a stop, crashing into Legolas. We laughed. Kate's blue eyes went wide and her jaw went slack. "What the crapola happened here?" she asked, running a hand through her waist length, wavy/curly brown hair. That was one of the similarities between my sister and I, we both had hair that was stuck between wavy and curly.

Author's note: Woo-hoo, chapter one! Lots of Hetalia references here. I like Hetalia. Did I just leave a cliffhanger? *gasp* I'll start Chapter Two soon so you all don't die of suspense. That would be bad, very bad. Review please!
