Fandom: Axis Powers Hetalia
Characters/Pairings: England, Norway, Denmark
Summary: Norway discovers the truth about England’s apparent lack of cooking ability.
Norway had learned early on not to ingest anything that the scruffy blond boy they had found in the southern part of the island they had invaded presented to him. The first time he was witness to the horrors bound to follow the consumption of it had been when Denmark had made the mistake of grabbing the spit slung over the small fire that had been built up, and taking a big bite from the meat that hung there.
It was dropped into the dirt as Denmark rushed away shouting something about cleansing his tongue; Norway had thought he’d heard something as the taller man raced away, but when he turned back to the scene it was only the boy fuming about his spoilt meal.
The next time it happened Norway was sure; he had seen the preparation that had gone into the meal and all the steps that had gone into cooking it. The only thing that was amiss was the slight glitter above the pot for the moment in which the child’s back was turned and the soft tinkling laughter that had followed.
It had been centuries since he had made the discovery; he had never bothered to correct the general misconception concerning the Brit’s cooking ability (or lack thereof) – it wasn’t worth the effort. Besides, who would believe him?
Last spring I filled out the crossover meme over on Lj, and had a lot of fun playing around with the characters from different worlds. Originally part was supposed to be a 100 word drabble… but we all know how bad I am at sticking to word counts orz The longest ended up being almost 700 words! Anyway, this was one of the three that didn’t end up as a crossover, with the requirements being ‘England, Crack!Fic’.
Anyway, if you’re interested in reading the rest of the fics that spawned from this meme, with notes they’re here but I will eventually upload them all here once I’ve managed to think of titles for them.
