Okay, I know I have at least a few international people on my flist. This question is actually for all y'all, or anyone else that wants to weigh if you've got something to add.

I love DC comics (or at least, I love the DCU [current editorial and I aren't talking]), but some days the gaps in how the mythos is set up gets really exasperating, and I'd like some help figuring out how to fill in a particular set of those gaps.

Over in the 'Uncle Sam' corner of the DCU, we've got Uncle Sam and Columbia (at least currently. Billy Yank and whoever 'Bea was then, and Johnny Reb and Dixie... they went back to sleep a while back). The UK, they've got Britannia and have for a real long time (Canada too? Or do y'all Canadians have your own? for that matter, Australia?). France has Marianne, even if supposedly she's very weak. Russia has the Bear -- and Mother Russia, come on, DC, get it right, would you? Italy should have Italia (Roma Mater in a new guise), not that we saw that.

But, um. There's rather a lot more countries than that. So any of you from places not the USofA... What would yours be? (ETA for clarity: What would your national personification be? I can hunt wiki for DC heroes of various nations, I don't trust it for a second to get national mythologies right.)

Or, even if you are US based, anyone know enough other national mythologies to lend me a hand?

Sorry for the spam. I swear, I won't post in the next 3 hours and fifteen minutes, so help me.

This is my best attempt at a round-up of things written this year. It's not entirely complete, because I left off any of Slade's prompts that didn't seriously strike my fancy, and for that matter I left off almost all of Ghanima's, just because I didn't want the headache of linking them in. My Dune-girl's journal is, and all I do with her is the prompts, so if you're interested, wander thataway?

This also doesn't include the epic I wrote with [ profile] katarik for NaNoWriMo that's still in beta, or either of the fics I wrote for Yuletide, as I didn't get to post them until 2009.

Other than that, this should be pretty complete. You might notice I have a theme, and it's Slade Wilson. What can I say? Canon has made me really, seriously angry, and fic is my therapy.

There's other stuff in here, though. The Western, Pern, a little Dune, Alien v. Predator, several pieces of Titans fic, a Justice League piece, a couple OTPoW pieces, a little Uncle Sam, some Nightwing...

Not such a bad year, after all.

I had a few posts a few weeks back about Uncle Sam.

Due to kind souls, my household has a cbr copy.

Therefore and I have been working on icons.

To bed with me now.

Title: We Hold These Truths
Word Count: 404
Fandom: DC comics
Character: Uncle Sam
Notes: First in a series, but hopefully entirely acceptable as a stand-alone.
All you really need to know is who Uncle Sam is, though mild familiarity with his incarnations would help.
