Chapter 1

I DO NOT OWN HETALIA:AXIS POWERS

The sound of sheets rustling moved through the dark room, accompanied by the occasional curse when her hand bumped against the nightside table. The lamp flickered on, making Madeline wince and groan as the buzzing of her phone seemed to increase as she rubbed her eyes.

"Yeah, yeah. I'm coming," she muttered. The polar bear looks up from its spot on the bed, regarding his owner with a one dark eye before settling down again. The nation heaves a sigh, grabbing her phone and pressing the green accept button.

"Alfred, you better have a good reason for calling me at 1:00 in the morning."

She can practically feel his amusement from the other line. Do I need a reason for wanting to talk to my baby sister?

"I'm older than you, dipshit." Madeline snarled.

There's the Maddie I know. Look, I'm feeling a little bit of a…itch.

"What the hell do you mean? Alfred, you better be sick, kidnapped, or bleeding to death, otherwise I'm not-"

Outside.

"What?"

Stop lying in bed and look out the damn window.

The nation bit back a curse, muttering under her breath as she threw the covers off and got out of bed, wincing at the cold carpet. She moves aside the curtains, looking out at the somewhat noisy streets of London and below the few stories to see the figure of her brother leaning against a tree.

"You've got to be kidding me."

America grinned up at his twin, running a hand through his blond hair. You coming or what?

She should go back to bed. She should tell him to bug off and bother someone else as they did have a meeting not eight hours from now, which their father happened to be hosting and would wring their necks if they weren't present. She should tell him to leave.

Canada sighs, rubbing her eyes and pinching the bridge of her nose. "Give me five minutes."

Five minutes finds her coming out of the hotel, moving down the sidewalk to where her brother was, long legs somewhat in front of him from where he leaned against the tree, scrolling through his phone. Madeline pulls on the black jacket, flipping her long blond hair out and down her back before speaking to her brother. "Would you like to clarify on what exactly was so important that it couldn't wait until tomorrow?"

Alfred pockets his phone. "You're here, aren't you? And besides," he extends his arms in a grand gesture, "freedom waits for no man! Or woman, in your case." Canada blinks, once, twice, before he sighs, reaching into his pocket and pulling out a set of keys.

Her eyes widen. "You didn't."

His hand shoots out and grabs her wrist, pulling her around the tree to the sight of the dark blue 1965 convertible.

England's dark blue 1965 convertible.

America smiles. "But I did."

"Dad is going to murder you. No, correction. He's going to kill you, bring you back to life, and then kill you again just for the satisfaction of doing it a second time." Her words seem to fall on deaf ears, even as she slips into the passenger seat, arms crossed and face stoic.

She didn't know how he dragged her into these things sometimes.

Yes, yes. It was a cheap shot to leave you there without any resolution, but this will continue! Don't worry! And, Goesto11, please don't kill me because this isn't the thing you thought it was. Friendship! Remember our friendship! Heals all wounds.

Hahahahaha guys she's going to kill me.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong.

Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

Dave Allen: Well-rounded. well-detailed story. Bull's done a thorough job developing her characters. An intriguing read!

P. A. Clouden: The world you've created here is powerful, dark and eerily prophetic. It's a poignant look at what a dystopian America can look like and how far off we are from it. I love the social commentary and message you're providing here. Very strong start.I also agree with Caitlin that some more detai...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

precious_passenger: I've read this story on Fanfiction.net and I'm so happy to see this here. It's one of my favorite stories about Supernatural fandom. Little Dean is adorable in here :) Also, I voted for your story. Us Supernatural fans have to look out for each other, right? :D

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.

cyaniderush: The story was gripping. The story flowed from one sentence to another that I did not even realize how much and how long I had been reading. There were run-on sentences in which the author used commas instead of semi-colons, but the meaning of the sentence was not lost. All in all, I enjoyed this ...
