Anonymous asked: Do you know Max Amini? If not, he is an Iranian-American comedian and he is SO HILARIOUS :D I recommend for you to watch some of his works on YouTube. I especially love these: -Iranian Moms & Tomato Juice/ -Indian bargain vs Iranian bargain/ -Gay Wingman/ -Persian Girls/ -مکس امینی گانگستر (The name of this video can't be found in English, so just copy/past this in you tube, the translation means: Gangster), And there's a lot more in there~* I love you and your work :3 Ye Donya dooset daram! :*

((You are honestly the cutest anon ever omg che naz, jan ;q;

But no! I can’t say I’m knowledgable about comedians but thank you so much for telling me about him :-* I’ll def look him up on YT when I get the chance, thank you!!!

Anonymous asked: I have nothing against Lesbians but, Please don't make IRAN a lesbian.... :(

(( ????????

she’s not a lesbian, but she’s certainly not heterosexual. History definitely reinforces this. Hell, even if she didn’t sleep with women, there were many points in history where she had been strictly homosocial, homoromantic, or biromantic. I’m a little troubled by your message being prefaced with “I have nothing against lesbians, but….”

what a strange message this was))

Salaam, friends! In a couple of days it will be Nowruz, or what is known as the Persian New Year, and I, and my people, will be celebrating it with a few other nations as well. I have haft seen table ideas in mind already and I hope those who will celebrate Nowruz this year will enjoy all the Sabzi Polo and Anaar you can eat!
Nowruz Pirouz!
((or Nowruz Mubarak! whichever you choose to say, Nowruz is happening on March 20th! Unfortunately, I won’t be having any Nowruz fun, but I hope everyone will have a great Nowruz hehe
As Iran said, Nowruz is the Persian New Year originated as an ancient Zoroastrian celebration to welcome the coming of Spring (the Spring Equinox)„and the beginning day of the Iranian calender. However, Nowruz is not limited to celebration by Iranians, it is also celebrated in quite a number of countries and communities. Nowruz is also celebrated in Azerbaijan, Kurdistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Armenia, Iraq, Tajikistan and several others, officially and unofficially!
The haft seen table [the table of “Seven S’s”] is a major decoration in the celebration of Nowruz and it traditionally set up with items that begin with the letter “s” or “seen/sin” in Persian. Common items for the haft seen are grass sprouts [sabzeh/Sabzi], apples [sib], samanu [an Iranian pudding], books [like Hafiz’s Divan, or a religious book such as the Quran], coins [Sekkeh], somaq [sumac berries], and garlic [sir], though there are other items not included that can be put on the haft seen table :)
and as you can see, there are several guest appearances from the countries mentioned above! From left to right: Uzbekistan, Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan [who is rockin a unibrow]!
and now i’m offically off hiatus!!))

It is near Nowruz again, my friends! Today is the day of Chaharshanbe Soori! I hope all my people and others who celebrate Nowruz enjoy their time with family and friends, as well as the coming of spring :)

Anonymous asked: Not all Indians are that dark you know, I feel like she looks more south Indian than anything, aka not representive of the mughal culture of northern India. How do you feel about this?

((do you think I’m an idiot who doesn’t know that Indians come in all skin tones omfg

I in fact based her design off a Rajasthani friend, but in Hetalia canon there’s only one representation for India so there’s no proper division of entities for historical and modern India, unfortunately :///// it’s more for convenience to have one character, but I was going to preemptively make a note on a future post about the divisions and various kingdoms that ruled over the Indian subcontinent in the past))
