Hong Kong x Iceland-The Thought that Counts by GydroZMaa Hong Kong x Iceland-The Thought that Counts by GydroZMaa
I need to brush up on proper capitalization. Some people capitalize "that," some don't. Which to choose? :icondizzyplz:

Sorry, Iceland, but no matter what, I'll always think meat-filled buns are better than licorice. >.<

I apologize if the artwork is bad. It's probably going to sound like an excuse, but I only got an hour of sleep and my time with my iPad is limited to the weekend so I decided to cram in the drawings as fast as possible to make room for other things.

Disclaimer: In any case, I support Hong Kong and Iceland as friends, not necessarily a pairing. I think they would be cute friends.

Hong Kong and Iceland belong to Himaruya Hidekazu.
This comic belongs to me, *GydroZMaa.
Drawn on my iPad mini.

I've never tasted or saw licorice before... I never even knew about it before reading Iceland x Readers. Meat-filled buns? What do you call 'em?

The classic Icelandic licorice is very rich and bitter. It must be a Scandinavian thing because no one I know likes licorice. 

The meat-filled buns are what I call bao-zi

Bitter.... it kinda makes me afraid of it...

Okay... I never tried and heard that before. Then what are those you call siopao or something? We kinda have it here.

Usually, or at least in MLA (i think...or was it APA?), words shorter than five letter are not capitalized unless they are important...but that is a weird word so I don't know!

Never tried La Rosita before. I've only eaten normal fried grasshoppers. Wonder what chocolate-covered ones taste like...

Really good the salty like taste of the grasshopper contradicts the chocolate also giving it a bit of a kick. So yummy!!

MEAT BUNS FTW.

So cute! I can totally imagine that happening! And I also offer my apologies Iceland...meat filled buns over liquorice anytime! (the spelling difference is due to us being on different continents)

Thanks! Ooh, I didn't know "licorice" had its own alternative spelling. It's like how some other countries spell it "colour" instead of "color," I guess.

[link] I just think they are very alike! i actually dont do much yaoi or yuri... but people mistake me for being obsessed with that stuff but i just think its just a typical friend relationship >A< is that so wrong or what....

Aww, it's so cute~! :iconexcitedblushplz: I don't have anything against yaoi or yuri, but I never saw anything wrong with countries just being paired off as friends. I think it adds a whole different aspect to the way they interact with one another. Hong Kong and Iceland could be the most interesting of friends in my opinion.

Heh yeah~ There's always a yaoi or yuri pairing in an anime anyway! another interesting couple i find is America x Belarus and... this is actually kinda my OTP--> Canada x Ukraine~ the possibilities are endless!

:icongydrozmaa:
GydroZMaa Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm...America and Belarus...Interesting. Does Canada even have any relationships with Ukraine? If the country does, I must be ignorant. For me, I've always been in a tie with Hong Kong x Iceland and Denmark x Scotland--as friends, of course.

Ink--Rainbow Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Well, for America and Belarus its because opposites attract. And for Canada and Ukraine... i really am not sure but i think its because of their personalities. And a new character Himaruya made up, some say its a cute pairing with Lichtenstein!! but i always forget the name... I guess im ignorant too -u-;;

Belarus didn't get along with Denmark so I'm trying to wrap my head around how America and Belarus would get along.

Ooh, I'd like to see someone get paired with Lichtenstein. It'd be fun seeing how Switzerland would react.
