What is the International Academy of Hetalia Fanfiction?
The International Academy of Hetalia Fanfiction (year one | year two) is the Official Fanfiction University for the Hetalia fandom. Students at IAHF are Hetalia fans of all varieties and they are taught by the Nations how to write good Hetalia fanfiction (with a side of how to be a good Hetalia fan).
How do I apply?
The first chapter of the first year has the application form. Fill it out. Be concise. This is not a college application.
Who the hell are you?
I am Mr. Allen Clarke, one of the two Course Coordinators at IAHF. The other is Mr. Hugh Fraser. He is technologically incompetent, so he wouldn’t be able to manage this blog to save his life.
Wait, seriously? The Nations teach us?
Yes. The teaching staff are all of the characters of Hetalia.
Does that mean Scotland and Portugal and -
Only characters with designs done by the Headmaster are in the Staff, although popular fan interpretations of already existing characters (Aviator Alfred, Kuro Kiku, French Revolution Francis, etc) do exist and help teach as well. Scotland and the other UK siblings are not on the Staff (yet). Portugal is.
What do we learn?
Students at IAHF focus on history, because we believe a solid grounding in history is necessary in order to truly appreciate the satirical nature of Hetalia. A problem with the new fanbase is its unwillingness to do research and overall weabooness.
Side classes in language, International Relations, art, music, Original Character creation, Crossovers, and so forth also exist. Canon 101 classes have a morning training session, overseen by Germany, Italy, and Japan.
I’m a history nerd and I still got into IAHF. What gives?
Great. You’ll be able to handle classes better than the average fanbrat. You might even be able to join the Nerd Group.
What is the Nerd Group? How do I get in?
The Nerd Group is the most prestigious student club on IAHF campus (yes, ironic, we know). Only the most dedicated of history nerds may get in. The Nerd Group requires you to pass an entrance examination, attend a debate, and read books from their list of required reading.
Required reading? What the heck is on that list?
History books, philosophy books, great literature, etc. Some authors are: Churchill, Shakespeare, Nietzsche, Foucault, Heidegger, and Huxley.
Wah, the Nerd Group is scary. What else is there?
There are various shipper clubs and fan clubs. There is also a Lurker’s Union, a Coalition of Coffee Drinkers, and a Royal Society of Tea Drinkers.
I put down [insert non-humanoid species here] on my enrolment form and I turned into something completely different! What the hell!
That’s Sealand’s fault. He’s in charge of customs. He might also have deliberately misinterpreted your luxury item. There’s nothing we can do about this.
Someone called the Bled Pinjas turned my hair/clothes/possessions/room Bled! What is that colour? Who are the Bled Pinjas? How did this awful colour come into being?
Bled is purple’s evil little sister. It’s red and blue mixed in a way that doesn’t quite form purple (don’t try that at home). The Bled Pinjas is a team of… well, pinjas… that go around wreaking havoc with Bled paint. The origin of Bled is a secret guarded by England and Japan.
How do I join the Bled Pinjas?
Are you Pirate Arthur or Ninja Kiku? No? Then you can’t join.
Where do you get all the supplies and stuff?
Supply plotholes are beautiful things.
What is the G8 and how do I get in?
The G8 is a panel of 8 IAHF alumni that assist the Course Coordinators. Membership is by appointment only.
I DON’T WANNA LEAVE THIS SCHOOL LET ME STAY LET ME STAY LET ME STAY -
See if you can get an assistant job with one of the Staff members. If not, tough beans.
