I can't draw very well so most likely won't be uploading any pictures, unless they're motivational or demotivational posters I may do, heh. But I will have stories, mostly reader or OC insert.


‘Oggi è stata una brutta giornata [Today was a bad day.]’

Like a percussionist lost in their music, the rain persistently thudded on the metal bus stop roof. The bleak gray sky loomed over the dreary beach, deprived of the laughter and children’s screams hot summer days offered. It was a painful reminder of the encroaching autumn chill and a bad idea solely rivaled by starting a large research paper the night before it was due.

This was supposed to be a special day at the beach before classes officially began on Wednesday. After spending their four-month summer break in Rome with his family, Feliciano Vargas was back in the States for his third year at a university several cities over. He was a musical theater major with a minor in play-writing and screen writing, dreaming of performing and writing his own works for audiences to enjoy and learn about his native Italy.

The twenty year old was amazing at what he did, but the previous year had seen him terrified of failing some of his general education courses. He was not in the STEM field for a reason. He was clumsy, irresponsible, and easily distracted! Yet, in the chemistry class he had taken as a general education class, he had found himself nearly flunking every lab he had to do. One of the other students in his class who was often in his lab group had, eventually, taken pity on his poor soul. The student’s name was Alfred F. Jones. He was a first year astronomy major at the time. Due to their late night cramming sessions, they became quick friends.

Alfred was a tall, nineteen year old blond with starry cerulean eyes. He was cheerful and a little cocky, but had the potential to be a good friend… sort of. One of the American’s defining flaws was how nosy he was, a trait that easily deterred potential friends from edging near him. This was not assisted by his disregard for understanding the situation at hand. Many of his friends had fowl opinions of him, of which Alfred had come to ignore – be it for sanity’s sake or genuine apathy. Feliciano was not extraordinarily different from these friends, but his poor opinions were significantly fewer (in part, because they both shared many of those bad traits people hated).

“So,” Alfred began slowly, kicking his stained sneakers against the wet concrete, “nice weather we’re having, huh?”

Feliciano, usually optimistic but currently too wet from the sporadic rainstorm to breed true joy, looked up from the empty street in front of him at Alfred. He raised a slender brow, feeling almost as sarcastic as his elder brother Lovino was when he said, “Your definition of nice is concerning.”

The blond laughed, zipping his brown bomber jacket and squishing his arms against his firm torso when the wind decided to assault them. He momentarily frowned, unhappy with his dirty blond bangs sticking to his face and his inability to see since glasses were wet in his pocket. His jeans and t-shirt stuck to his body, effectively chilling him every time the wind danced their way. He could not even imagine how cold Feliciano had to be at the moment. Coming from the warm Italian weather to chilly New England had to be horrible for his health in some way. Even worse was his attire! Feliciano was known to dress for the season, not for the weather. So there he stood in little more than his swim trunks and a button down shirt, as he had been determined to swim and forgot to pack more than just his towel.

Both stared quietly at the road, impatient for the bus to come to their aid. Feliciano, in particular, was upset about the rain today. Even though they had meticulously checked the weather for today that week, he had forgotten to check one last time the night before. There was a chance of rain all week, but it had been low. He could not help but feel that if he had checked one more time they would have been able to avoid this and just go to the movies or something.

Feliciano sighed and looked up at Alfred and opened his mouth to apologize (again) for not checking the weather again the previous night, only for a wall of water to splash them from a car who had rushed by them as suddenly as the rain had come. Both of them blinked in confusion, glancing from the car in the distance to one another. Alfred cracked a smile, starting to laugh in that boisterous way he usually would.

Feliciano, on the other hand, lit up like a light, almost as if he were able to cry. With a sigh, Alfred yanked off his jacket and dropped it on the brunet’s head. He stretched his arm out to feel the rain and commented, “Let’s go to the cinema. I hear there’s a new Disney movie still there.”

The Italian peaked from underneath the jacket on his head, smiling a bright, toothy smile and nodding. “Si… ma, can we change first?”

“Nope, we’ve gotta freeze in the theater.”


‘Grazie per non arrabbiarsi con me [Thank you for not getting angry with me.]’

Anything else, just ask. I'll be happy to talk!
So hi, this is the first time I've actually done a journal on here. I'm a little nervous actually... so this is a character proflie/chart for my OC Sicily. I'll be using her a lot from now on but I suck at drawing so don't ask me to draw her. I have a friend drawing her though... hu~ it'd be nice to have some more people though. I just love seeing different artworks for characters. But don't mind me.

Nation: Italy Sicily (Regione Siciliana)

Nickname: Trinacria (Because of her triangular shaped island and it's the ancient name for her island)

Name: Aria Celestina Vargas

Gender: Female

Appearance Age: 19

Birthday: March 17, 1861 (Italy's unification date), or March 31, 1282 (Sicilian Vespers) [She celebrates with her brothers because she isn't independant, on her own she celebrates her real birthday.]

Hair Color: Dark brown with an auburn hue

Eye Color: Hazel-green

Height:  5'4.5" / 163.83 cm

Weight: 133lbs / 60.33 kg

Appearance: She is average height for women of her country and of average weight for someone of her size. Her eyes are hazel-green; a typical color of quite many Sicilians and her hair is dark brown like many, just with an auburn-like hue to it as well. Her hair is long, to her waist almost, and straight, getting many waves as it descends to the tips and a peculiar curl similar to her older brothers' on the left side of her bangs. Her skin is more olive toned like Romano's.
She looks to be a fragile girl but really is very strong due to all the years of war and conquest. She is fashionable in her country's clothing and never strays too far from looking young and pretty, possibly even taking some pride in her youth and fashion sense. She'll often wear summer dresses, denim, bright colors, pants or skirts. On special occasions she will dress up to look professional but doesn't take too long to get out of the stuffy outfits. She has a more female version of both Romano and Italy's military outfits that she once wore with pride, but sometimes looks at them with shame now. She always wears a cross necklace in memory of her grandfather, never taking it off except for the obvious times when it is needed. She has a headband, flowers or accessories in her hair that will match with whatever she is wearing sometimes but usually she just has her hair plain and down.

Personality: She is much like her two older brothers in many ways but as well is her own person as well. She is innocent, naive, bubbly, friendly and kind but also has a bad temper that leads to a foul mouth, jealousy issues and trouble talking to certain people. However, she tends to seem a little more aware and able to sense the mood than the other Italians, she is still pretty gullible and a coward; even though she is a bit stronger in comparison to her brothers and just a tiny bit braver. Although like her brothers, she is a flirt, a pretty good one at that even though she is a virgin like Italy and just as inexperienced.
She is polite but due to events in her youth she grew bitter towards certain things, like sharing people. Ever since the Roman Empire fell and the Germanic tribes took over she was never the same again; very foul tempered at strange moments, especially when she remembers past events. Sicily is very outgoing but also can be shy when it comes to voicing her opinions, since despite being an autonomous region; she sometimes gets depressed, feeling unimportant.
Sicily as well is an amazing cook, just like her brothers, sometimes being nicknamed 'God's Kitchen' because of her wide variety of cuisine. Her specialty being sweets like cannolis, granita, and cassata, and many other delicious pastries are strong associated or came from her island. Also is trilingual speaking Italian, Sicilian and English but in her younger years she did speak Latin, Greek and Spanish; which she somehow managed to forget to banish bad memories. On the subject, she used to have a long lasted Greek influence, was even Eastern Orthodox for a while, as well as many other religions like Islamic, now her being a Roman Catholic due to the high population and influence of the Church on the island.
She's a 'huggy' person, liking to be in physical and emotional contact with those close to her, much to the discomfort of some of them. She in reality loves her island but sometimes hates the heat and would prefer a northern place to reside, especially with her fascination with snow.

- Secretly she at some points wanted to be her own country, but is a bit afraid of being overrun by bigger countries.
- Despite her nice exterior she can be pretty bitter towards some people
- During and after the rule of the Byzantines in her youth after her Grandpa died she secretly (until it became outright and noticeable) began hating the empire because they tried to be her fallen Grandfather
- Sometimes she couldn't care less about what people think of her, but other times she's very paranoid about it
- For her past wars, especially the Italian unification and WWII she receives horrible nightmares very often, some nights she can't get to sleep at all and sits up crying about her sins
- Secretly she just wants to love and be loved in return by someone who won't die on her like her past human crushes.
- Despite being very modest she is actually very prideful about her island and being Sicilian, putting Sicilian before Italian often
- Because of the mafia she can handle weapons very well, yet that path is the very last resort
- She's actually very lonely from quite a bit of isolation so she can often be found going to orphanages to see the children since she herself didn't have any actual parental figures after Rome passed, from this is probably why she became very clinging and wanting of love but she is also afraid of losing everyone she cares for

Optimism- like Italy she is very optimistic and has gotten through many hardships because of it
Youth- Because she is young she has more energy and can run as fast as her brothers when in retreat
Awareness- Because of this she is good with business and also able to sense things pretty quickly

Coward- She is brave and strong but she is also easily frightened and would prefer to run from battle than actually fight
Naive- She is guidable and inexperienced, so people can easily take advantage of her
Depression- Because she gets easily depressed and it happens pretty frequently, she has a hard time managing and dealing with daily tasks sometimes.
