  1. Disclaimer: I DON'T OWN HETALIA OR DETECTIVE CONAN. I WISH I DID. Hi guys! It's me. I know... I'm horrible. I have four on-going stories and I decided to add another to the mix! I apologize, but this idea wouldn't leave me alone! I hope this story makes sense... It's rather strange. And also, I haven't wrote for Hetalia before, so forgive me if they're out of character. Or if I made a mistake. And... *sigh* THIS IS MY LAST DAY OF SUMMER! I have Freshman Orientation tomorrow... DX Oh well. ENJOY~~! "Alright! I think we can begin the World Conference Meeting!" An overly enthusiastic blonde with glasses yelled. "Solving the world's problems one by one!" A sigh echoed throughout the gigantic conference hall. There was a long table and there was nine people were sitting at the table. "Anyone have any problems? Besides the obvious ones!" America continued. "Global warming is going to take a while! Anyone got anything?" "America, what gives you the right to run this meeting? And this isn't even a World Conference Meeting!" Another man that had blonde hair with bushy eyebrows and a British accent questioned. "It's obvious England! Because I'm the hero! And I'm calling it that, so deal with it!" America grinned. Sparkles began to glitter around him. All of the other countries groaned. "So any problems?" There was a pause. "None at all? C'mon, there has to be something happening in the world!" "I have one, da." A very large and the tallest out of all the countries spoke up. He was wearing a scarf and had purple eyes with a childish smile. "Any OTHER problems?" America asked, still grinning. England gave a hopeless sigh. "Go ahead Russia." "No one will become one with me, da." Russia stated innocently, cocking his head. "I don't know why…" "And that's why I didn't call on him!" America said after there was a moment of silence. "I have a problem!" A blonde with wavy hair barely above his shoulders and a stubbly chin. "No one wants to hear your problems, France!" "Angleterre, you're so cruel…" France pouted. "I have a very important problem!" "And whatever could that be?" "…My girlfriend broke up with me!" The country began sobbing dramatically. "WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH SOLVING THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS, WANKER?" "IT DOES! IF I'M DEPRESSED THAN THE WORLD IS DOOMED!" The two countries began to strangle each other. An Asian country with brown hair tied in a ponytail sighed. "Are you two fighting again-aru?" "STAY OUT OF THIS CHINA!" "You are always fighting and disrupting the meeting-aru! China retorted. Three countries were sitting next to each other. One had a reddish brown hair and a daydreaming look with a curl. Another was a quiet Asian with black hair and deep brown eyes. The last one had a light blonde hair and light blue eyes and a stern look. "Ve~!" The one with reddish brown hair said. "Everyone looks like they're having fun~!" "Italy, all they're doing is ruining the point of this meeting." The blonde grumbled. "Hai… But Germany-san, they always act like this…" "Sadly, you're right, Japan." Germany agreed in his thick accent. "Someone must have actual problems…" "Ve~! I have one… I don't have pasta~!" "Not that kind of problem Italy…" Japan was silent. There was a problem bothering him, but he wasn't going to interrupt selfishly. "Japan…" The country looked up when his name was called. "Hai?" "Is there something bothering you?" He wasn't going to lie for his own selfish needs. "…Hai…" Germany frowned. "Why didn't you say something before?" "I… I did not want to interrupt everyone." "But if you have an actual problem, you should say it! That way, we'll be able to get something done." "I-I guess…" Germany sighed and stood up. "EVERYONE!" England and France stopped for a moment, hands still wrapped around each other's necks. "Germany?" "Someone actually has a REAL probl-" "MY PROBLEM IS VERY REAL!" "Shut up, frog!" "Who has this problem?" America asked with interest. "Japan." Germany gestured to the flustered nation next to him. "Japan?" All of the countries glanced over. "What's your problem, Japan-aru?" China questioned. He was actually a little concerned, but he wasn't going to show that. "W-Well…" Japan stood up as well, and stuttered. "There's an Organization that's causing trouble, and…" "What?" America looked unimpressed. "An organization?" "Hai… It's causing a lot of trouble…" "Eh? How so?" "There has been shady business and lots of murders." "S-Sounds scary, ve…" Italy started whining. "That happens in every country-aru!" "B-But… This Organization… Made a drug. And this drug…" France raised an eyebrow. "Drug?" "According to my sources… It kills people and it can't be traced… But…" "But?" America was getting impatient. "Spit it out, Japan!" "…It has a very rare side effect of shrinking people." "WHAT?" All of the nations exclaimed at once. "Shrinking people, da?" Russia looked confused. "That's not possible!" England sputtered. "And your magic is, Angleterre?" France rolled his eyes. "It is, you bloody git!" "Whatever you say, mon ami, whatever you say…" "I'M GOI-" "EVERYONE, SHUT UP!" Germany yelled. Grudgingly, the room became silent. "What are we going to do about this problem?" "Every country has organizations." England grumbled. "We can't be expected to do everything…" "But shrinking people?" America had a gleam in his eye. "That is so cool, dude!" "Cool? What's cool about that, wanker?" "It just is!" "This is why I didn't think my problem needed to be shared…" Japan sighed. "I think we should check this out." Germany finally said. Everyone looked at him, surprised. "Shrinking people with a drug… That shouldn't happen. I say we should try to destroy this organization so the drug can also be destroyed…" "I… I suppose, but…" "I forgot another thing…" Japan spoke up. "It is believed this same organization is searching for a special gem that can grant immortality." There was silence. "IMMORTALITY?" France shouted, eyes gleaming. "SHUT UP, FROG!" England yelled back. Then he turned to Japan. "But… Immortality?" "Hai… It is said that the jewel has tears or immortality and if you drink it…" "Interesting-aru…" China mused. "Very interesting! Let's go find that jewel!" "Frog, we're countries. We don't need something like that… Unless the nation died…" England trailed off. Immortality, huh… "So, is it agreed? We go to stop this organization?" Germany questioned. "Ve~! It's Germany's going…" Italy thought aloud. "I'm coming too! I'll make sure to pack plenty of pasta~!" "Well, I must go!" America declared after a second. "I'm the hero after all! Hahaha!" England rolled his eyes. "…I suppose I'll go as well." "I'm going!" France immediately said. "Kaitou Kid is currently in Japan as well! He used to steal from my country… I will find this thief!" "Kaitou Kid, eh… Sounds interesting, da!" Russia childishly grinned. "I want to see." "…I'm going as well-aru. Japan is in my area-aru." China agreed, somewhat embarrassed. Japan was shocked. Everyone had agreed… "Thank you, mina-san." "Of course! A hero helps people in need!" "We'll plan and meet." Germany decided. He too was surprised they had agreed. Suspicious… "How about tomorrow at… 1:00 in the afternoon at my house?" Japan offered. "We'll have plenty of time to prepare." All of the countries nodded, agreeing. "Well, then… Meeting dismissed!" )))))))))))))))))))))) "Honestly…" Mouri Ran grumbled. She was walking home with her father and almost-little brother from their meal at a restaurant in the city. "Why do we run into cases everywhere you go, Dad?" "Don't ask me." Mouri Kogoro muttered, yawing. "It just happens. Anyways, another case solved by the Great Sleeping Detective, Mouri Kogoro!" 'Oi, oi…' Edogawa Conan thought as he walked along. 'I'm the one who solved it…' "You were great, Uncle!" "Of course I was, brat! Nyahaha!" Conan dead-panned and Ran looked annoyed. "I'm tired of running into murders all the time! I can never go anywhere without seeing a dead body! It's a beautiful Saturday, and…" "Sorry, Ran…" Kogoro apologized. "But… There's nothing you can really do about it when it happens." "You could prevent the murder!" As Ran continued scolding her father and Conan watched, amused, they heard a voice. "Oi! Kudo! Neechan! Occhan!" A familiar Osakan accented voice. Conan inwardly groaned and Kogoro outwardly as they saw one Hattori Heiji waving to them from a few yards away. One Toyama Kazuha and surprisingly on Haibara Ai was with him. The two Osakans ran up to the trio happily while the shrunken scientist followed indifferently. "Hattori-kun! Kazuha-chan! Ai-chan!" Ran was surprised. "What are you doing here?" "We came ta visit!" Kazuha grinned. "How are ya, Ran-chan?" "I'm fine, and you?" "The Osakan brats… And the creepy little girl…" The famous detective muttered as the two teenage girls continued to chatter. "Nice ta see ya too, Occhan!" Heiji cheerfully greeted. Ai was next to him. Then he looked down at the shrunken detective. "Hey, Ku-K-Conan-kun!" "Hi, Heiji-niichan." Conan glared. Then he glanced at Ai curiously. "What's up, kid?" "The sky." "…Besides tha'." "The sun." "Ya know wha' I mean!" Conan smirked, successfully having annoyed the teen. "Nothing much. Just ran into another murder." "Of course, ya did. Ya're a murder magnet!" "You say that again and you're going to be on the receiving end of a super-powered soccer ball." Heiji shuddered. "Scary." "Haibara, what are you doing here?" "I couldn't reach you on your cell phone and I was near the agency. I walked to the entrance when this guy-" Ai gestured to the Osakan detective, "And his girlfriend spotted me. Then they dragged me along to find you." The strawberry blonde leaned towards the mini detective and whispered, "New temporary antidote." Conan's eyes blue eyes widened in joy as Ran and Kazuha appeared next to the boys and girl. "Hey, do you wanna go to Beika Park? It's really nice, and I don't feel like going home yet…" Ran suggested. "Sure!" Kazuha readily agreed. "Where is it?" "It's a couple of blocks from here." "Alright! Let's go!" Heiji fist pumped, wanting to take Conan's mind off the soccer ball idea. "C'mon, Ku-Conan-kun!" "Hai!" Conan answered childishly with a fake smile. "Do you want to come as well, Ai-chan?" Ran asked the indifferent girl. "…I might as well." The mini detective was amazed that the girl agreed, but shrugged. "Alright! Let's go!" The karate champion smiled. "I'll pass." Everyone looked at Kogoro. "I've had enough for today… And Yoko's gonna be on in half an hour." The group dead-panned and rolled their eyes at the 'detective's statement, but let him go. "Off we go!" ))))))))))))))))))) After a few minutes of walking, they saw the park in sight. "C'mon, let's hurry up!" Kazuha said excitedly. "I can see cherry blossoms!" Ran laughed. "Alright!" The two older girls ran ahead as the boys and Ai continued at their own pace. "So how long will this antidote last?" Conan turned to Ai. "At the most, forty-eight hours." The chibi detective nodded. "Thank you." "You shouldn't be thanking me. It's my fault this happened in the first place." She said coldly. "…Maybe I shouldn't be thanking you. But still." Conan genuinely smiled at her. She was surprised, but also gave a small smile. "Eh, Kudou… Are ya ditchin' Nee-chan for this chibi nee-chan?" Heiji butted in. He was immediately on the receiving end of two deadly glares. "I could give you the APTX-4869." Ai's icy blues eyes drilled into the Osakan. "And you wouldn't be as lucky as us." The tan detective shivered then started running to the park after the girls. "Get back here, Hattori!" )))))))))))))))))))))) "What exactly are we doing here?" Hakuba Saguru questioned testily. "Oh, c'mon Hakubaka… Lighten up!" Kuroba Kaito cheerfully bounced along. "We came to check out the jewel Kaitou Kid announced he was going to steal!" "Yes… I realize that. But why are we going through a park?" "Sorry, Hakuba-kun…" Nakamori Aoko apologized next to the teenage boys. "It just looked really beautiful and I wanted to see." Saguru sighed. "No, Nakamori-san, it's quite alright." "But these cherry blossoms really are quite dazzling…" Koizumi Akako noted, playing with a lock of magenta hair. "What I'm surprised about is why Koizumi-chan is here." Kaito pondered aloud. "Kaito!" Aoko elbowed her childhood friend. "You're being rude!" "Nakamori-san, it's alright." Akako slyly smirked at the magician. He rolled his eyes. "I did, after all, invite myself. I shouldn't be here." "Don't say that Akako-chan! I was going to invite you anyways." The girl protested. Then she smiled. "But I'm glad you came." Akako was surprised, but then smiled as well. "Thank you Nakamori-san." "Regardless, let's keep moving. They're only displaying the Red Rose for a little while longer." Saguru reminded the rest of the group. "Hai, hai!" Kaito continued skipping happily. Suddenly, the teenage magician crashed into something. "What the hell?" He muttered. He looked up to the person sprawled on the ground across from him. It was a man in traditional Japanese style clothes with a katakana. The man immediately was up and helping him. "Gomenasai! Are you alright?" Kaito was up on his feet easily. "Yep! And don't apologize, it was my fault. I wasn't watching where I was going." "No! It is my fault!" The magician raised an eyebrow at the man's behavior. "Kaito!" Aoko, Saguru and Akako ran up to Kaito. "What did you do this time?" "I ran-" "Gomenasai! It was my fault, your friend did nothing!" Akako's red eyes lit with recognition, but remained silent. "Is that true, Kuroba?" The British detective glanced at his friend. "No." Kaito admitted. "It was my fault… Wasn't looking where I was going. But this guy keeps insisting otherwise." "No, it is my fault…" "What's your name?" Aoko curiously asked. "Ja- I mean, I'm Honda Kiku…" "Nice to meet you Honda-san!" Kaito greeted. "And please stop blaming yourself." "But-" "Japan! Japan!" A blonde with glasses appeared with some other guys following him. "Am- Alfred-san…" Japan corrected himself. They couldn't say they were the embodiments of the countries to these humans… America and the others saw the group of teenagers and caught on. "Oh… Where did you go Kiku?" "Gomenasai, I thought I saw something…" "Saw what?" Saguru asked suspiciously looking at the group or eight. It looked like there were two Asians and the rest foreigners. "None of your business." England curtly informed him. He glanced over the teenagers until his eyes fell upon Akako. He looked taken aback, but regained his composure. The British detective and teenager magician raised their eyebrows. Definitely suspicious. "And you are…?" Aoko asked politely. "Alfred F. Jones!" America introduced himself. England sighed. They shouldn't be giving their identities away… "Why do you need to know?" "It's polite to introduce yourself." Kaito interrupted Saguru before he could say anything. "Besides, I'm a detective. It's in my nature to know things. And you're acting very suspicious." "How so?" "Why would Jones-san here call Honda-san 'Japan'? And you've stuttered with your names a few times… It seems like you're hiding something." "Oh? And what's your name?" "Hakuba Saguru." England's eyes widened. 'This detective is from my country… I recognize that name.' "Forgive me." England began to speak in English. Everyone was surprised at the sudden change in language. "I recognize you. I'm also from England, you see." "Is that so?" Saguru answered back. "Anyways, what are you doing here?" "…Visiting." England stated. "Visiting? Really?" Kaito now also began to speak. "You know English?" The former pirate questioned. "Yep!" The magician comfirmed. "I think you should switch back now." America joined in. Looking at the two teenagers, he added, "I'm from America. Of course I know English. Anyways, we're just confusing everyone." "I see that." Saguru switched back, now smiling. "What was that about?" Aoko asked Kaito. "I only understood a few words..." "Nothing." Kaito grinned. "But I think they trust each other enough now. "Arthur Kirkland." England shook Saguru's hand. "Nice to meet you." "I'm Nakamori Aoko!" Aoko smiled. "Koizumi Akako." The witch finally spoke. She was smirking. England's green eyes widened when he heard the name. "Angleterre, don't keep all of the ladies to yourself!" France immediately had two roses in his hands for both girls. "Pleasure to meet you. I'm Francis! All you need to know is my first name." The Frenchman kissed both girls' hands. Aoko blushed and Akako continued to smirk knowingly. Kaito and Saguru looked slightly jealous. "Shut it, you bloody frog." England muttered. "I'm Yao-aru!" China introduced himself. "Nice to meet you!" "I'm Ivan, da." Russia gave a childish smile. "…Ludwig." Germany grudgingly said. "Ve~! You can call me Feliciano~!" Italy happily spun around. "You two are cute~!" Aoko blushed again. Akako looked pleased. Kaito scowled somewhat and Saguru just gave a shrug. "I'm Matthew!" Canada seemed to appear out of nowhere. "C- Mattie, what are you doing here?" America questioned, surprised. "…You told everyone to come to J- Kiku's house today… So I came." "…" All of the countries had forgotten, once again, about Canada. "Where did you come from?" Kaito asked. "Kaito! You're being rude again!" "No, it's okay." Canada gave a sad smile. "I'm not the type that's noticed." "Sorry…" The magician apologized. "No, it's fine." "Enough." Germany finally said after the pause of silence. "We need to go, remember?" Japan nodded with the rest. England, however, frowned, furrowing his thick eyebrows. "Hold on a second." Everyone glanced at him. "Koizumi-san, may I speak with you?" France gasped. "Angleterre, I didn't know you liked younger girls!" "Shut up frog!" Akako gave a graceful nod of her head. "Of course, Kirkland-san." The witch followed the Brit a little away from the group who were now interacting. "Yes, England-san?" "…I didn't expect to run into you here, Koizumi." Akako shrugged, but kept her sly smirk. "Coincidence?" "With you, it's never a coincidence." "Ohoho~! Quite right. Lucifer told me that I would run into something interesting today at the park." England looked taken aback, but quickly regained his posture. "I should've known you'd be able to summon the Demon Lord. You, Koizumi Akako, successor to the Scarlet Arts." "It has been a while since we've seen each other, England-san. How has your practice been with your Black Magic?" "…Quite alright." "I can sense a dark aura around Russia-san…" Akako glanced at the tall man with the scarf. "You summoned him when calling for a demon, didn't you?" "That's what I thought. Maybe he made a contract with the devil…" "With Russia, you can never tell." England sighed. "Anyways, I have a favor to ask, seeing you here." "Oh? A favor? I thought you, you of all people, would never ask such a thing. Tell me." The British man leaned towards the witch and quickly told her of his plan. Her red irises widened, but she smirked. "How interesting… There's nine of you… And… Let me check." Akako closed her eyes and sensed for auras. After a few moments she opened them and smirked. "Lucky for you, there are eight humans and one witch in this park." England raised one bushy eyebrow. "You're willing to…?" "I suppose I must. This is quite a big favor you're asking of me, and there will be a price." "I understand." "You must be very lucky England-san." Akako continued. "Because these people besides the ones you've met… They're connected in ways that will help you in your mission. If they were random people, it would be highly unlikely that your goal would succeed." The former pirate nodded. "Yes. So is it guaranteed we'll be able to meet each other again soon?" "Indeed." Akako played with her hair. "But, are you going to tell them?" "…I can't. It won't work if they know, as most of them will probably disagree." The witch laughed. "Ohoho~! So you're willing to risk the chance that this will go wrong, they won't know what will happen and they'll die?" England stiffened, but slowly nodded again. "It must be done. For the sake of bringing down that Organization." "And why would you be interested in destroying this particular Organization?" "If it's true that they are searching for a jewel that cries tears of immortality and they manage to obtain it, the world will be condemned to Hell. As the embodiment of England, I cannot allow that to happen." "How noble, England-san." "Say whatever you say, Koizumi." "Of course it's whatever I say." The temptress twirled her magenta locks around a delicate finger and smirked. "Let's begin." Kaito glanced at Arthur and Akako talking. 'Whatever that witch is involved in can't be good.' "Kuroba-san?" "Eh?" Kaito snapped back to Japan. "Yes, Honda-san?" "I want to apologize about-" "Oh, please!" Kaitou laughed. "You've already apologized enough. Don't worry about it!" "Kiku, you do apologize to much-aru." China agreed with the magician. "Yao-san…" "It's true, Kiku!" America butted in. "And I know! BECAUSE I'M THE HERO! Hahaha!" "…Is he always like that?" Saguru asked Russia. "Pretty much, da." "I see…" "Mon cher, you're very beautiful." France continued flirting with Aoko. She kept blushing. "Ve~! It's true~!" Italy agreed. "Stop bothering her, It- Feliciano." Germany grumbled. Kaito glanced back to see England by himself and Akako gone. "Hey… Where'd Koizumi-chan go?" He asked Saguru and Aoko. "I don't know…" Saguru frowned, also looking at England. Suddenly, they heard chanting. "Create a bond, create a bond Fusing the soul together Forces to heaven and hell meet, to enlist Bring down the evil they face the same Collaboration, collaboration Against your common enemy JOIN NOW!" They looked towards the source to see England with his eyes closed in concentration and a gigantic magic circle began to form. It was gigantic, Kaito couldn't even see the end of it. "EN- ARTHUR, WHAT THE HELL?" France and America began screaming. China, Russia, Japan, Germany and Italy also began to yell. Kaito narrowed his eyes. 'I knew it… That witch did something to Kirkland-san.' Before he could do anything, Kaito's body began to feel light, and he started to feel dizzy. He felt his consciousness slipping away. 'What the hell…?' And then everything was dark. ))))))))))))))))))))) Conan had been chasing Heiji as Ai watched highly amused and Ran and Kazuha chattered when they heard chanting. They whipped around to see a beautiful teenage girl with magenta hair. "Create a bond, create a bond Fusing the soul together Forces to heaven and hell meet, to enlist Bring down the evil they face the same Collaboration, collaboration Against your common enemy JOIN NOW!" A glittering magic circle was began to form. It must have been huge, as Conan couldn't even see how big it actually was. "Who the hell are you?" Heiji yelled. Conan was about to move, but suddenly his body felt light as air. His vision began to blur until everything became black. ...Yeah. It sucks. :V Oh well. Again, I apologize if they're out of character... Japan seemed to be. I think I made him apologize to much. *sigh* Oh, and I came up with that chant. :V Sorry, I was lacking imagination... And I didn't have the others say their last names for reasons. If you can figure out why, I'll give you a cookie~~~! Eh, and with Akako and England... I just HAD to put that in their. XD They're both my favorite characters in their anime/manga respectively. But I do also LOVE America and Russia... Anyways, they're both magic users! XD So I had to use that to my advantage. And if anyone can figure out what this spell does EXACTLY, I'll give you a cookie~~~! Well, this was probably the longest chapter I've ever wrote for anything... I'm amazed. I hope you enjoyed! Please tell me what you thought! Thanks!

    Conan x Ayumi

    I've been wondering about this pairing. This might seem random, but I was looking Detective Conan videos on YouTube. Then I saw a Ayumi and Conan one. It was pretty good. Then I was thinking about how they can never really be together. Ayumi kisses Conan a lot, but Conan never says anything. He knows about Ayumi's crush in him, but still. Thoughts and ideas?
  3. This is based off the Animal one I thought off. I just continued thinking, and this was the result. Same idea as 'Which Animal is the Person Above You?'. For example, I say I'm Hakuba. XD I'm smart, precise, like looking at watches/clocks, etc. But then the person can agree or disagree. If they disagree, they say who they think the person above them is, and why. Understand? I REALLY hope so. I'll start. (Also, no repeating what character you said. Try and change it up a bit. Thanks. ) I think I'm Akako. For certain reasons people should know. OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO!! :twisted:
  4. Alright... I've been wondering about making a Forum Game... I've always wanted to make one. So, I was doing the dishes and came up with this. I hope you like it. My idea was that a person can say what animal they think they are. They should also say why. I know animals have different personalities, but just how you think of the animal. For example, I could say, I'm... A fox(not really.) I think I'm a fox because I'm sly and clever. That's it. And then the person who posts next says if they agree or disagree. They can say why. If they disagree, they should say what animal they the person is and explain. Then thy say what they think they are. And so on. Get it? I hope so. I'll start. (Also, try not to repeat what animal you said. Try and mix it up a bit. Thanks! ) I think I'm a hyena. XD I laugh insanely all the time.
  5. Well, since most people here seem to know Pokemon, I started this. So, what Pokemon is the person above you? Say who you think you are as well. Also, explain why you think so for both. Same rules as the Animal and DC Character one. Ready? Go! I think I'm Eevee. I'm playful, and can usually adapt to most situations.

    LGBTQA+ Community

    Hey guys. This here is the LGBTQA+ Community (edited to actually be inclusive, as the GSA is very limiting). This thread is for the people who are homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, demisexual, heterosexual and/or any other sexual/romantic orientation you may be, as well as transgender, genderqueer, genderfluid, and non-binary people. You can be anything to support this; it's called the LGBTQA+ Community, after all. Just be someone who believes it's unfair and not right to simply judge someone of what gender they're attracted to. There are quite a few kids about there who are figuring out their sexual/romantic orientation. It is very possible you are discovering who you are. But there are teenagers and adults alike who are bullied every day for who they are. Some eventually can't stand the pain anymore and commit suicide because they feel hated, unwanted and repulsive to others. These people need to know that there are people out there in the world who care, even if you don't know them personally. They care what happens, and they believe in equal rights for all. Don't be afraid to be who you are. Just because of who they like doesn't change anything. They're still human. Even if you find out your friend is homosexual, bisexual or anything else, you shouldn't freak out. They're still your friend. It doesn't automatically mean they like you and are trying to come on to you. There are males who are attracted to females. There are females who are attracted to males. There are males attracted to males, females attracted to females and some who are attracted to both males and females. There are other people who are genderfluid, genderqueer or nonbinary. A quote from Cassandra Clare: Did you know? Interracial marriage wasn't allowed until after 1967. How would you feel if someone told you that you couldn't marry your love just because they weren't the same skin color as you? The same race? Same-sex marriage is legal in ten countries (as of 2012): Argentina Belgium Canada Iceland Netherlands Norway Portugal South Africa Spain Sweden The issue has been debated in several more, and some are still working things out. It is, however, in some countries, illegal to be homosexual and you will be put in jail or even killed for it. Homosexuality used to be considered a mental illness. And get this - It's legal for marriage equality in six states of the U.S. (Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa) while it's legal to have sex with a horse in 23. Nice going, America. According to Aeyra: I do realize there are people out there who are religious and even pious, and this goes against your beliefs. Or there may be other homophobic people who are merely disgusted with the idea who homosexuals. I understand that. However, if you are one of these people, I ask that you don't flame or hate on this thread. Don't even bother with this if it's not in your beliefs. We want to help people; not start a fight or an argument with anyone. If you do, however, have a serious issue with this, please PM me. People should be able to love whoever they want. To be truthful... I'm currently trying to figure out what my sexuality orientation is, and I believe myself to be bisexual. But to all my friends I've made here on Detective Conan World who are homophobic, I'm still me. Nothing's changed. Homosexuality is still considered a new idea. Many people are afraid of new things and straying from the normal path. It will take a while for people to adjust to the idea of two males or two females loving each other, but I hope they will learn to accept it soon. Take a look at how America felt about interracial marriage. They didn't react very well. Look at it now. If you're homosexual, bisexual, transgender, pansexual or asexual and you haven't "come out" about it, just know that there are people who care. Don't think about self-abuse or suicide. Know that someone cares, and we're here for you. If you need to talk about anything, I know Aeyra, I and many other DCW members will be happy to listen and try to help the best we can. I just want (and I know many others do as well) to be able to walk down the street openly, holding the hand of whoever I love freely and unafraid of what anyone will say or do, regardless of their orientation and/or gender.

    A-LE-LE

    So, a-le-le! The best moments Conan has said it! Once, he said it three times in one episode! Is that a record? I love it when Kogoro mimicks him! XD I personally think this is Conan's best line!

    I was just wondering... Do most people here like Eisuke? I mean, I know some people HATE him and some think he's annoying. And others, cute~~~!! He's pretty smart. Anyway, conanshinichi is one of the reasons I made this topic. I'M GOING TO PROVE THE PEOPLE WHO HATE EISUKE WRONG!! :twisted: OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOH!! Please vote and tell me what you think.

    Oh!! Phobia is a fear of something. For example, arachnophobia is fear of spiders!! It all depends on the prefix too. A "homophobe" is a person who has homophobia. Does that make sense?

    @MK I don't want to argue with you. I do not believe that my statement about religion is stereotyping; the statement that beliefs cause conflicts is a true one. People who believe different things are bound to have disagreements. And I never specified only religious beliefs, compared to personal beliefs -- which are also inherently connected. There was also never a "trap" set in the first place. @Balthazar Google "definition of homophobia" and you'll have your answer. The literal definition of the word is "dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people." @Hobgoblin Thanks for the clarification!! I get where you're coming from. And thank you very much for your kind words! I once again ask that we bring an end to any of the debates over this here. The thread is here solely to share support and acceptance, not to cause disharmony among the DCW community if some disagree with LGBTQA+. It is not to argue over whether or not it should be legal; I was hoping this would be more for updates on the subject and for people being able to share their personal experiences as a member of the LGBTQA+ community. Allies are certainly welcome, but again: this is not here to argue about. I am not trying to make this thread exclusive or anything like that, I only want to restrict the debating as much as possible because that isn't what this thread is for. I hope everyone understands what the purpose of this thread is. Please, please keep this in mind. Thank you!! As mentioned earlier, I identify as akiobisexual demiromantic, so I am gray ace and gray aro!! I like having a label myself, but I know many -- like Jean -- also don't like having one too! My boyfriend is transgender as well as queer. Many of my friends are also part of this community, so it is very important to me!! @machine I apologize for not responding to your previous post about your gender identity and orientations. Those are great, and I'll definitely make sure to use those pronouns for you!! I agree wholeheartedly with your statement of gender expression =/= gender identity. I really wish this was more understood by others, and I wish it was more common for people to use they/them pronouns if the person's gender is unclear before assuming female or male just by the way they look.

    I apologize for my phrasing, I will correct it to "many wars". I was more referencing wars in the past, rather than modern warfare, that is my mistake! However, I am a bit confused in regards to the mention of WWII and Hitler though, because it most certainly did include religion, particularly in regards to the persecution of million of Jewish people. I do honestly believe, in my personal opinion, that religion is a cause for many conflicts. It stems from people's beliefs, and those contradict each other constantly. But just because it is a cause does not mean it's the only cause; I am by no means accusing religion for being the thing that caused all of the world's problems!! I would just like to highlight that religion is most definitely a big part in this issue, we cannot ignore that. And in response to MK -- if you feel uneducated, you always have the choice to educate yourself. No one is preventing you! I apologize again for the assumption of avoiding them, but typically you want to avoid something that irritates you, yes? I disagree with a few of your phrasings and the reasoning behind it, such as "average Joe" -- how can anyone be "average" in such a diverse society of race, gender, religion, orientation, socioeconomic status, and disabilities? But again, this is my personal view on the subject. ^^ Thank you for sharing your opinion, dude!! I greatly appreciate it, and I would like to remind everyone who is reading this topic that this is about tolerance and acceptance, not necessarily debating being for LGBTQA+ or being against it. This is a sensitive topic that affects many people, and we are not trying to start an argument or cause aggression; this is a safe space to know there are people supporting you if this issue directly affects you as it does my life. Please keep in mind the core reason this thread was created!! Edit: also thank you machine!!!! Your points are very accurate and I am grateful for your elaboration on the subject. *high five for aces!!*

    Okay, okay, so a lot has been going back and forth, and it sounds like some good stuff has been said. machine has said several good things that I agree with, and MK has said a few things I just like to point out/elaborate on!! These "gender norms" are constructs of society, and I honestly and thoroughly believe that we should not be teaching men to act in such a manner. There's nothing "weak" in regards to things that are considered more "feminine" such as crying, showing physical affection, and being more open about our feelings. In fact, I think those things can be extremely important when it comes to having effective communication between any two groups or more of people. Second, those are only stereotypes and stereotypes leave a bad taste in my mouth. Please don't make any assumptions about this group of people. I understand that some members who identify as homosexual of the LGBTQA+ community can be flirty and overly dramatic, but so can any other group. And saying that you want to avoid that group of people solely because a few people can act in such a way is being discriminatory, but you seem to already understand that. Thirdly, I request that you don't continue to refer to the LGBTQA+ community as "gays". The LGBTQA+ community is filled with diverse orientations, not only homosexual people. It is incorrect to refer to us in such a way, and I personally find it extremely exclusive. How much more difficult is it to type LGBTQA+ over "gays"? Only a few letters. Thank you. I know many religious people who still follow the church, well, religiously. It still has power, and always has been. Many wars in history have been fought because of religion, and it still has tremendous influence. And to say they get "no persecution" is an absolutely incorrect statement. Please look here, and feel free to google "hate crimes against lgbt" and see what comes up. Even if it'll "probably be hard to change" doesn't mean that we shouldn't try to dissuade use of that phrase, as some people in the community may be uncomfortable with it. It's the same as when using the phrase "that's so gay" offended many people, especially when it was used in regards to something that wasn't even human. And for that last part, can you blame them for being so focused on it and advocating for it? People are thrown out of their homes for coming out to their families, they're scared. People commit suicide because they feel like they can no longer continue to live with their gender identity. It is a pressing issue, one that should be brought to everyone's attention. And this is a huge aspect of their life, so of course they're going to talk about it! It's the same as you being passionate about something you like, such as Detective Conan, for instance. You want to talk about it with your friends because you really like it. It's the same, except this can BE their entire lives. Just something to keep in mind. Thanks!

      Have you seen the more recent chapters with the conclusion of seijou and karasuno's second game? I don't want either to lose;;

      And it is really nice how much the anime has still been sticking to the manga! I wonder if they'll do that for the second as well. I just hope they won't animate something completely different out of fear they'll catch up to the manga orz

    Oh my gosh, thank you for bringing this up. This is extremely important, and again, thank you for drawing our attention to it. Rest in peace, Zander. ... Ahh, yes, I saw those Valentine's too!! I actually sent a few of them to my friends, and my boyfriend gave me an ace one, hehe. They're very nice, and I'm so glad to see that the tumblr community has been raising awareness for the ace/aro/gender communities, rather than solely focusing on only the LG (and only occasionally B ) part. Thank you very much for putting some explanations about gender there; it's unfortunate that so many people still aren't as familiar with these definitions. I would also be very interested to hear you talk more about your gender identity, if you are open to it!! What pronouns would you like us to use? And I'm very glad to hear that you've discovered these terms. I myself am gray aro and gray ace, being demiromantic and akiobisexual respectively. I only recently found out about the term "akio", and I'm very happy I did!! High five for being aroace buddies!!

    so a lot has happened over the last few years!!! 37 states in the US so far have legalized marriage equality since the last time i checked, which is great news!!! only 13 states left to go. i would also like to bring up the topic of Leelah Alcorn. rest in peace. i think the emphasis on transgender people is very important in this community and we should not erase them. this also goes for asexual and aromantic people, particularly the latter with the recent date of valentine's day. any commentary people would like to add? feel free to bring up anything, i would love to get this topic active again!!
