For the doujin I've had in mind since April '13. Maybe I'll do it, maybe I wont. I dont know. Im very busy, dont expect too much. I guess you can call this a teaser, or a sneak peak. Maybe I'll do this doujin if Philippines becomes canon in Hetalia, as tribute to all the wonderful PH OCs out there. But sadly, my own Phili OC doesnt even have a part in this. Heck, Mexico gets a part here! I still dont know how to squeeze her in the story. I'll figure something out... Or maybe by January...who knows...
Surprise, surprise. It's the Netherlands and ~choco-java
's Luzon OC, Juan Crisostomo ~JCpilipinas
, and his siblings, Visayas and Mindanao. They're unrecognizable, but, given the circumstances they're in, vanity isnt exactly their top priority. Ive mentioned before that I'll only use Hetalia characters whose nationalities are in the Philippines during WW2. And surprisingly(to me at least), there are Dutch in the Philippines. I dont know why and Im not familiar with their role in WW2, but when you think about it, the Dutch East Indies is just south of the Philippines, so its not really surprising. Ive heard and read a couple of testimonies stating that they were able to survive the war because of some good Dutch. hmn... They must be pretty bad a$$.
Anyway, Luzon is one of the 4 main characters in this story. Netherlands, Visayas and Mindanao are supporting characters. Mindanao plays a very minor role, being just a little kid, but his very existence will have a major impact on the lives of the siblings. Besides, you cant separate the 3. They represent the Philippines after all. But I kinda want to expand Mindanao's role. Netherlands originally is just an extra, but I found a way to give him a bigger role in the story, and it fits the character perfectly too. hehe. And they can all keep their human names.
Betrayal: You are here
*Ate = (a-teh) Big sister.
*Nips = another slang for Japanese
= The hooded witness has its traditions in the Makapili or the Makabayang Kalipunan ng mga Pilipino (League of Patriotic Filipinos), whose members ironically were spies of the Japanese during World War II. The Makapili, with his face and head hidden inside the bayong
, a native bag, was feared by Filipinos, who dreaded being picked out as guerillas fighting the Japanese. The mask gave the Makapili added sense of power because in the absence of recognizable identity, he lost accountability. www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/…
(Makabayan Katipunan Ñg Mg̃a Pilipino
or Alliance of Philippine Patriots
) was a militant group formed in the Philippines
during World War II
to give military aid to Japan
. Organised by Benigno Ramos
and Artemio Ricarte
, they were born out of José P. Laurel
's refusal to conscript Filipinos for Japan. The Japanese decreed that the group should be founded in November 1944 when they brought together many of the supporters of the defunct Ganap Party
. Like Ganap its main area of support was Metro Manila
, although Makapili established chapters across the islands, attracting some support. Makapili members are best remembered by turning in Filipinos to the Japanese through pointing at insurgents with their heads covered with a bayong (Filipino basket).
After the war the group was vilified for its involvement in some Japanese outrages on the islands and individual members faced trials for treason as a result. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makapili…
Luzon , Visayas, and Mindanao OC belongs to
