Fanfic / It's a Small World After All

Go To

It's a small world after all is a Hetalia Crack Fic written by troper Bri Nara. Part of a series of crack fics named "Hetalia Crack Series". England tries an age reversing spell to get back to his glory days, but accidently turns himself and several others into little kids (everyone constantly refers to them as "Chibis.")

So the nations that turned into chibis most be taken care of by the few remaining adult nations that know what's going on, so by default, America, Spain, and China. The babysitters often change because England ALWAYS messes up somehow when he tries to fix them. Since the plot was written by Rule of Funny anything goes. If it was requested or just a random thought the author could somehow convert into a joke it was thrown in.


The sequel has been named "It's Raining Women" as a Shout-Out to the song 'It's Raining Men'. More or less the same thing except with gender-bending, and pervy-ness.

A third fic named "Everybody Wants To Be a Cat" has been confirmed to be coming after "It's Raining Women". The same crack, with cats.

     It's Raining Women 

  • Absurdly Ineffective Barricade: Prussia tried to use the door to lock out Hungary.
  • Agony of the Feet: When Liechtenstein dropped a bowling ball on Switzerland's foot. And about 5 lines later when Romano's ball ended up on France's foot.
  • Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: The Tequila Incident. America tried drinking more Tequilas than Mexico. He ended up getting drunk enough to believe he was a superhero, rode around Cancun on an alpaca, flung himself onto the second floor of a mall, and went on a rampage in a laser tag field.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Germanic countries are always prepared for a German Sparkle Party.
  • Crosscast Role: While the nations were doing a play, Fem!Japan had to play a boy.
  • Curse Cut Short: Still a Running Gag.
  • Drinking Contest: It starts off as an arguement over who has the best alcohol, and somehow snowballed into everyone being dead drunk and having extremely cracktastic hallucinations.
    • The Tequila Incident was initiated by one.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: China. China. China.
    • To the point were next to no one notices when he actually is gender-bent.
      • Until Chapter 19, where the characters play russian roulette with beer cans and he/she gets soaked.
  • Exact Words: England keeps reminding everyone that the contract he signed states that he can't use any AGING spells.
  • Expospeak Gag: From Chapter sixteen:
    America: ...what's a Fan Fiction?
    Japan: A piece of fiction within a fandom utilizing characters and situations from a pre-existing work.
    America: ...Huh?
    Japan: Fangirl write story.
    America: Oooh! Cool!
    • Also briefly used during the pirate battle:
    Germany: They shattered the structure on the bottom of the port side.
    Romano: Translation, potato-bastard?
    Germany: The left side is broken. We might sink.
  • Extreme Doormat: The authoress had several requests that she refused to touch (the period request, a request to kidnap a nation herself), however, she eventually did them due to popular demand.
  • Magic Misfire: From England, Belarus, America, and Prussia.
    • Latvia and Sealand.

  • Marshmallow Hell: Happened to Japan. The results were expected.
  • More Dakka: Fourth Wall War Two should qualify by now.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently England messed up his spells many times in 2008. And got banned from a pub because of it.
    • Mexico brought up America's "Tequila Incident". The only details given were that: All the Hispanics know about it, America is embarrassed about it, and it happened in Cancun, Mexico during spring break. Make of that what you will.
      • Finally explained in Chapter 27. America tried to drink more Tequila than Mexico, ended up drunk, and rode around Cancun on an alpaca while thinking he was a superhero. As a prank, Mexico put America in a room with a kangaroo before he woke up.
    • Whatever the hell the Bad Touch Trio did before chapter 11. It got France covered in chocolate, Spain in a clown-suit, and Prussia gender-bent and in a nun's outfit.
    • The magic time-travel trip the Magic Club had apparently made Sealand ruler of the world in another dimension.
  • No Periods, Period: Due to squickey-ness of the topic, author says that this will be played straight, however, it gets averted in the fifteenth chapter, much to the discomfort of Hungary.
  • Right Behind Me: Rome and Germania seem to always be observing, unnoticed, in the background.
