:'D Big lists of ideas are intimidating, but I'll try to see what I can do with Iceland with the characters here! Because most of his history is starving and not actually talking to other countries.

-- Icesave

His economy was great and then it went down the toilet in 2008 when his lending to other countries was affecting by the global recession iirc. Most of his buddies wouldn't give him a loan so Russia pitched in much to everyone's wtf. The government considers the problem over, but the people are still touchy about it.

--Eyjafjallajökull

The volcano with the unpronounceable name erupts to everyone's surprise. Shuts down airports in most of the western world for a week or two. Causes tons of problems and gives Iceland (unwanted) attention.

--Viking settlement

This'll sit here until we have a Norway, I guess, but it'd be cuuute. Iceland's seen people for about a hundred years sail by or stay for a night or two, but the Norwegian vikings finally land in Reykjavík and establish a proper settlement, and Iceland joins the Nordic family.

--Crack

I'm up for just about anything!


Any takers? -fails forever-

I'm in on the Icesave-thing, but I must admit I don't know much about it. :-)

Ahhhh I like this list, especially the thing about Iceland and Norway, oh yeah. I'm up for this, and I should read more about the topic.

Oh, and there is one thing I wonder about: Is Iceland a nation before Norway came? The only ones who have come there before the Norsemen are the Papars (Scottish monks), and archologists don't have any proof of them being there at all. Still, I find Iceland being habitated by Scottish munks pretty comical oh man. Please help me here, even if it's a tiny detail.

The entire volcano incident is gold when it comes to awkward 'sorry's' and other nations irritation, and not forget all the sad jokes that can made of Iceland's little "accident". Yep, I'm in.

I think this is a bit odd to think about, since we aren't really sure how the nations are "born" in the first place. Aside from the monks who may or may not have been there, the Norwegian chieftains who left Norway when the country was unified(..I think?) were the first to really settle Iceland permanently. In my headcanon, I sort of picture it as them staying long enough for toddler!Iceland to finally get curious enough to go and find them. Idk, Hetalia seems to only work logically in hindsight.

The monks I think may have seen him or talked to him a bit. If memory serves, the monks had a tradition of going to Iceland during the summers, but after the vikings came they were too scared of them to return? Well, they had a tradition of going to "Thule," anyway. But it's believed that Thule = Iceland. Still, I'm a bit rusty on this.

If you have any other info or ideas, feel free to tell me; this is just my speculation. I'll probably have to dig up some more research as well though. xD

And pff poor Iceland. :'Db

Haha yeah it isn't easy, and I don't try to be a bitch about it. Yeah, he somehow 'appears'/is born when the monks comes/stays, then? correct me if I am wrong. And yeah, some leaders who weren't pleased with Hårfagre collecting the smaller kingdoms into one, so they set sail to the west and wham! Iceland was populated. So either Iceland was first pupulated by either some special monks or 'butthurt' ex-leaders. Ahh I love this.
And pff I don't know that much about this topic, bleugh.

I was just saying I wasn't sure, you're fine. :'D I'll have to do a bit of research myself but I think that'll be fine. Also the idea of Iceland's roots being butthurt leaders ahaha. xD

And that's fine! I only really have a general knowledge myself too, so after exams I'll be happy to pull up some links and such c:

Edit: some colonization info links:
Wikipedia article. There isn't much info elsewhere that isn't included here.
Viking daily life. For time-period details.
A shorter history of the settlement; it basically gives an overview of the Scandinavian people who discovered/named Iceland before it was actually settled by Arnarson.
Viking dress.

I hope some of this is useful xD If you find anything else though, please send it my way!

Either crack or the Eyjafjallajökull incident sound great~ c: I've always wondered about how these two would get along, so I'd love to start something!

You're not the only one that's been wondering. x3
But from what I can imagine, I'd say they'd get along rather well. They're both rather quiet and they've got ice in common! *is being shot from bad humor*
I'll try to think of something crack-ish, otherwise Eyjafjallajökull, eh? ~

They're both quiet, northern, and have crazy relatives! Canada is also home to the largest population of Icelanders outside of Iceland (in "New Iceland," in Manitoba) so I think they'd get along pretty well. And they both have animals following them around too-- Bad humor? What bad humor?

If you or I think of anything crackish, that'd be awesome! And shall I go start a thread for Eyjafjallajökull, then? c:

Haha, crazy relatives indeed! xD Feels somewhat like my own family ...
Ah, they are? O.O I didn't know that ... Well, you learn something new every day, huh? ^^
*tries to imagine how well Kumajirou and Mr. Puffin would get along*

Start the thread, mister Iceland!

DD:" That sounds like a very annoying family, then!

Yup! :'D Just hanging around here you learn lots of random things~

They would probably get along fine, though Kumajirou's memory and Mr. Puffin's impatience may cause issues. Their relationship may have to be investigated further. ;o

Aaaand done! C:
