Title: The Next Best Thing to Normal
Fandom: Hetalia
Rating: U
Summary: Germany and Italy have invited Switzerland and Canada to dinner as thanks for the help they have provided as interpreters for EU meetings. Switzerland, it must be said, is less than thrilled at the prospect of spending the entire meal translating across three languages and relying on Canada to communicate in a fourth. Yet even he is willing to admit that a small attempt at normalcy -- if only for part of an evening -- is better than nothing at all. Sequel to In Hell, the Simultaneous Translators Are Swiss. (Germany/Italy, implied France/England) Also available at AO3.
Disclaimer: All original works are copyright of their respective owners; I lay claim only to this particular story.
Notes: Originally written for a Hetalia anon-meme prompt in which the nations are suddenly confronted with language barriers that prevent them from communicating with each other. Additional notes are at the end.

Summary: The nations have lost their ability to communicate with each other in any language other than their official languages. Canada and Switzerland, as nations with multiple official languages, have been pressed into service as simultaneous translators for EU meetings. But how will they react when a desperate Italy begs for help to convey a message that he can no longer say on his own? (Germany/Italy, implied France/England)

Notes: Written for a Hetalia anon-meme prompt in which the nations are suddenly confronted with language barriers that prevent them from communicating with each other. (Heaven help me, I've written serious 'ship-fic for the first time.) All notes -- in this case, primarily linguistic notes -- are at the end.
