APH line up Random Comics - Price by randomsketchez APH line up Random Comics - Price by randomsketchez
Well, someone has to die. This is war after all... 


Is this what you call angst? I just felt like drawing something that reflects my current state of emotions since my Phili OC is all like tralalala its xmas and all that $h!+. Anyway, I suddenly had the urge to draw something for the secondary characters in APH line up_sketch. Maybe I'll make one for the others too. I think I want to make this doujin. I'll be freeloader in January, and I'll have all the free time in the world. hmmnn...


As Ive mentioned before, I'll only use APH characters whose people are present in the Philippines during WW2. Yes, there are Canadians and Norwegians, though I have to admit, I dont know what their roles are in the war, nor do I know why they are in the Pacific. Iceland on the otherhand, well, I just want him to be a part of this (he's my one of my faves ok! And I have a role for him). I know, he's probably too young to be in the army (he's 15, right?),  but in those days, there are lots of runaway kids pretending to be adults so they can join the army. Ugh! Im in serious shortage of American and Japanese characters that Im using other Nations to fill in! 


Anyway, Im not sure if I should make Matthew Alfred's twin or a younger brother. Either way, Matthie still represents Canada. Arthur is their British cousin who acts like their older brother. Too bad, Francis isnt part of this. That would have completed the FACE family...


Yes, I know, Alfred and Matthew looks different. I gave Matthew shorter hair coz he is in the army. Both of them dont have glasses because, Alfred doesnt have them yet, while Matthew's glasses was confiscated. 


Edit:  Hehe, I dint realize the Hunger Games  reference in this. ^^; But this is based on real events and I already decided to include this in the story even before I ever got to watch Hunger games. Sorry I forgot to include this in the first place (thats what happens when youre impatient and sleep-deprived. ^^; ) In any case, here's part in the book that details this situation:

...Individual questioning went on much of the morning, and then later in the day, a Japanese colonel who spoke fair English came to address the entire group.  He said that it had come to the attention of the Japanese army that a number of atrocities had been committed by the Americans during the defense of Bataan and those atrocities would have to be avenged. There was a particular incident that had occurred in a place called Quinauan, where the Japanese had made a surprise landing by boat behind the lines and had proceeded to dig themselves into a series of hillsides that swept precipitously to the sea. The fighting, much of it hand-to-hand, had indeed been horrific, with a high death toll for both sides. When the Japanese refused to surrender, the Americans forced the Japanese out of their intricately connected burrows by driving tanks over the foxholes and dropping firebombs directly into the entrances...
 
...In any case, the Japanese colonel now insisted that the Americans would have to pay a price for the Quinauan incident. He instructed the officers to select ten individuals from within their ranks. This ten men, he said, would face a firing squad in the morning...
 
...After much discussion, ten Americans of different ranks were chosen. Some of them, including Thomas, volunteered...

...The next morning the ten men were brought over to a hill and made to watch a group of Japanese soldiers as they practiced marksmanship and bayonet skills on a s series of targets set up in trees. Thomas and the other nine men were handed shovels and pickaxes and forced to dig a hole large enough to accommodate all of them. As a courtesy to the damned, they were given cigarettes to smoke and sake to drink and then told to kneel at the threshold of the grave. The colonel asked them if they wanted blindfolds and they declined...


Im not gonna say what book I got this from coz Im gonna use the same title for my doujin.

I swear, I felt pride and at the same time, pity. Ugh, the sheer amount of emotion was simply beautiful. True, I get what you're saying. I don't know, making stuff about World War 2 is really hard in terms of respect and not offending. I mean, it's easy to submerge yourself in the War, and forget that it really happened.

Oh my. They have a tumblr?!?!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

Hhmmm....there is something familiar about that part of the story. I just can't put my finger on it....oh well X)

oh dear! I hope you havent read the book I used as reference! hehe. But I wouldnt be surprised if it does sound familiar. After reading a couple of biographies, Ive notice some of the stories are repeated. Probably because most of the war survivors doesnt want to talk about their experiences, and those that do are the only references the authors have.

This is from memory from history class. But Canada was in the war for a while (Literally a week after Britain declare war) and some Canadians were deployed to Hong Kong. After the Battle of Hong Kong, they surrendered to the Japanese. Well that is what I remember.

But still! Mattie, my baby. You don't have to pull a Katniss on us. ^^; Sorry for that.

I think, they say thats why APH Canada is invisible. Well, other that the fact that America overshadows him, Canadian war efforts were considered British, so it was almost as if Canada wasnt part of the war. If Im not mistaken, Canada was still a British colony during WW2.


hehe

Canada became "independent" (Notice I put quotations for it) from Britain since 1867. World war I Canada automatically enter the war when Britain declared war. The 2nd Great War, Canada had more of a say to join in (that is why they had a week to declare war, the Canadian Parliament was debating if they should enter the war or not) so the country enter the war as a country. But since Canada still part of the Commonwealth (And still is) you can see why people say that. ^^; Also it took a long time to get the Canadian constitution from Britain. This information was from some of my memory and talking to a friend of mines.

Ah, I see. Thanx for the info. I assumed Canada was still a British colony during WW2 coz I saw a comic strip a while ago about how Cananda got its independence by asking nicely. lol. And they kinda look like they were wearing WW2 clothes. Then again, Im clueless when it comes to fashion, so I must have been mistaken.

Sorry for the late reply and you're welcome. That comic is probably reference to 1867 and the Canadian Confederation. Upper and Lower Canada, also New Brunswick and Nova Scotia ask Britain to unify them and become more "independent". Which they granted because of reasons and those four colonies became known as the Dominion of Canada. So pretty much asking. ^^; Yeah, I can see why it was confusing. I think the artist went with the WW2 design because we are use to them.
