Axis Powers Hetalia/Fanfic Recs/General

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

The fanfic recommendations page for Axis Powers Hetalia grew so long that we had to split it into subpages. This subpage is for general fics focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast, or pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance, crossover, or dark subjects.

You can add to the current recommendations if you want; please do remember that you need to use the template found here and sign your rec for it to stay on the page. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.
