ABOUT THE DOUJINSHI
Lovino Vargas is a new student that is in his Senior Year at Hetalia High School, having spent previous years at different schools due to his family moving around lots. While other students are looking forward to bright futures and amazing new opportunities, Lovino is rather fed up with the world around him. He feels like he's seen it all and nothing is worth getting excited over anymore. The only people he really knows at this school is his annoying classmate Gilbert Beilschmidt, his annoying little brothers Feliciano and Serafino Vargas, and the rather mysterious Kiku Honda. As he spends more time at this school, he hears of rumours of things here and there being taken from the school and the idea that there are 'little people' running around the school. However, no proof has been given to really support these rumours, and Lovino himself is quick to dismiss the rumours as nothing more than stupid ideas.But one day, this changes. After cleaning up the classroom on his own at the end of the day, Lovino somehow falls unconscious. When he wakes up, he's nowhere near the size he used to be. He meets a girl named Maricela, who welcomes him as the newest 'Class Dweller' in the world of 'Elementary'. But this world he's been introduced to... it's his own high school! This time however, he's experiencing it from new heights. Lovino isn't wanting to stay like this forever though, so Maricela offers to help him return to being what she calls a 'Giant'.(This is an Axis Powers Hetalia doujinshi project. It features many of the canon characters, as well as OCs created by members of the fandom. The storyline draws inspiration from The Secret World of Arrietty, but the overall storyline is my creation. The genres include Fantasy, Comedy, Romance, Friendship and Mystery).

And I finally did it! The result of my contest at the doujin group concluded recently and thus I felt more ready to draw up the cover and make a start! I think it came out pretty well. Now people may have a better idea of the size difference between humans and the dwellers, ahaha.
You may notice a bit of a day/night-sun/moon thing going on... Completely intentional. And people who have been following the group will have noticed that I included my Indonesia OC Cahaya on the cover. She has a secret role in this doujinshi - all I'll say is that yes, she is in a bit of a parallel thing with Kiku and like Kiku, she is also an ordinary human/Giant. And Lovino here, he's ironically not even Giant size for the majority of the doujinshi - but I wanted to draw him with some of the main Dwellers in the story: Maricela/Philippines, Alfred/America and Yong Soo/South Korea.
And um... feel free to guess at shippings that occur in the doujinshi, but don't expect me to give them all away.
Heck, just cuz Lovino and Maricela are the main characters doesn't mean they're paired - or does it? //mysterious look
ehh you'll just have to see how things develop!
Lovino's my favourite APH character anyways, which is why I wanted him to be the main protagonist of this story. This story is really dear to my heart, ultimately because it's a story about Hope and Love (platonic and romantic, people and concepts, etc). I really hope you guys will enjoy it!
