[APH] JOIN ME WITH THIS RARESHIP by melonstyle [APH] JOIN ME WITH THIS RARESHIP by melonstyle
I don't care if it's OTP or BrOTP, just let it be known that oh my god Albania/Israel is one of my secret OC/OC ships in Hetalia. 8I

Now let me explain why you should join me with this duo:

1. They have history
2. They have great relations
3. Because I said so

No really, let me just spam some things about AlbIsra and why it is super special awesome:

:bulletred: Albania recognised Israel since 1949. They established relations in 1991 and maintain embassies in each other's country.

:bulletblue: Their History: Albania was the only European country occupied by the Axis powers of World War II that ended World War II with a larger Jewish population than before the War. Only one Jewish family was deported and killed during the Nazi occupation of Albania. Not only did the Albanians protect their own Jews, but they provided refuge for Jews from neighbouring countries. The Albanians refused to comply and hand over lists of Jews. Instead they provided the Jewish families with forged documents and helped them disperse in the Albanian population. Some 1,200 Jewish residents and refugees from other Balkan countries were hidden by Albanian families during World War II, according to official records. [source]

:bulletred: Israel was very grateful to Albania for what they had done, returning the favour in 1999 during the Kosovar War by providing Kosovar Albanian refugees with medical care, food and accommodation.

:bulletblue: There's an interesting speech made in regards to how Albania helped the Israeli Jews during the Holocaust. Here's a quote from the speech: As Apostol Kotani says in his recent book, The Hebrews of Albania During Centuries, "Sikur te kisha krahe e te fluteroja do te veja te puthja token Shqipetare qe me shpetoj jeten. / If I could have wings to fly, I would come to kiss the holy Albanian land which saved my life." 

:bulletred: lol, there's even a page on facebook dedicated to the two countries.

:bulletblue: there was someone who wrote a book as well, and the article relating to it is quite interesting too!

Some more articles!:

lol let's spam some pictures/photos:

so long story short, I think these two have a very interesting relationship and not many people know about it... so why not enlighten people? In fact, I'd love to discover more and more hidden connections that people often overlook. It's fascinating to know, ain't it? XD

Anyway, I know Melody's OTP is AmeIsra, but I also like the relationship of these two as well. So I simply OT3 it, mwahaha--//slapped (AmeIsBania? XD)

please tell me I managed to convert someone here--

Israel OC belongs to :iconanimangaluver-melody:
Albania OC belongs to :iconmelonstyle:

lmao well, I guess cuz both aren't canon characters and when people think of ships for either OC, they don't tend to think of OC/OC ships. But I actually think this one is the one of the most positive and historically viable for each character involved. And thanks btw! :D

IKR omg my first APH OC was a total Stu, I'm glad I scrapped him before people could notice the terribleness -- from then on I swore to do research for all my OCs --plus I think it's really fascinating to learn about the world ;u;

oh, I can help you out if you like! c: I still need to post my Albania profile sometime, but I still retain a lot of the knowledge that I got from my research~ c:

Yes same her she was all shy and bashful and blushy and a mary sue to the fullest she's evolved quite a bit  since ive first rped with her last year and her first palette was waaaay off im so happy i changed her up. i agree with you about learning of the world I am in the very early process of a Kosovo character that is going to be shared with a friend and im also thinking of creating a Barbados, chile, Kenya, Nigeria and a couple of the Turkish countries as well.

Thank you so very much it would be so very appreciated! I am terrible when is comes to researching cause i start with one topic then i switch to a completely different one.

Ooh! I can help with Kosovo as well (as you've already noticed, I own one as well, ahaha) Oooh, I'd love to see those other OCs too! African countries need way more love! And I'd always wanted to see a good Barbados, I never got around to making my own, ahaha. In terms of Nigeria, I recommend checking this person's works out: :iconikechi1: (they're from Nigeria, so yes--)

and lmao, it's okay. If you have any questions, just throw 'em at me and I'll do my best to answer. ^^

THANK YOOOUUUU i kept meaning to colour that sketch i did so i'm glad to have finally done so

OH MY GOD SAME HERE I LOVE AMEISRA, BUT I ALSO LIKE THE RELATIONS HERE TOO
I'm pretty happy with it too, I really love those ships that feature characters who are very supportive of one another. It's also interesting that they're supportive despite having some differences that would normally be a bit of a con between countries. It's kinda like, they don't always see eye to eye with everything, but that doesn't have to mean they should dispute about it. So I feel these two have a great understanding of one another, yes~

and god yeah, when I saw that line I was like 'YEAH THAT'S TOTAL SHIPPING FODDER RIGHT THERE'. It was really cool though, because Albania tends to get pushed around a lot in history, but when it came to helping Israel he really stood his ground and damn did he have some good results from doing so. =u=

GOSH I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT
AND I NEED TO DRAW THE OT3 SOMETIME, GOSH

i already have ideas for ot3 pictures omg :iconpapmingplz:

Huehue yes xD Oh wow, that's super cool! :0 Your Albania is a really cool character <33

but ikr? They have some really interesting relations - Albania really did pull through for Israel during what was certainly a very dark period of their history. And nowadays they seem to be very pro-each other, even though they have some differences that seem to set apart other countries.
