I didn't want to make this public because I've been incredibly stressed and anxious about the whole matter, but there is one more primary reason I've been requesting everyone delete Shatter fan art.

People keep stumbling upon fan art for it and finding out about or remembering Shatter as a result, and unfortunately that's come to haunt me in the worst of ways- I've been getting a lot of unwanted attention and harassment on a few of my online accounts, mostly on my blog.

I do my best to delete those kinds of messages and move on, but it's taking a huge toll on my mental health to be attacked for a mistake I made a long time ago, and I keep having anxiety attacks over the situation- and I'd really just prefer to make up for my huge mistake the only way I can and erase Shatter's existence the best I can: that includes fan art.

So please, if you're an artist with Shatter fanart still up, please help me and delete it. I'm on the verge of tears.
Could you please delete it?

I am really ashamed of Shatter, and while I do appreciate the effort and time and love you put into your artwork, I'd really like it if all traces of the story's existence could be removed and deleted. I'm sorry to ask all the artists who made work to do this, but even years after writing it (it's been six years now), the horrid thing keeps coming back to haunt me, and I just want it gone.

It was a terrible story and I want people to stop trying to find it, but since there are still pieces of art out there, people keep stumbling upon it and trying to find it.

If you have a copy of the story, delete it. I never want that story read or seen again, please respect and understand that I have my reasons for this.

I continue to write Itacest on my blog, work much better than Shatter could ever be, so if you want Itacest, please go there, but do not talk about or spread "Shatter."

I know some people misunderstand, so let me clarify: This is not about modesty or trying to appear humble! I legitimately hate the story I wrote and am ashamed of it, and there is no reason anyone should like it. I can't believe it became as popular as it did, because it was truly awful.

Please, please help me erase it.

Today I happened to remember reading Shatter, like four years ago. And I had no idea it's been gone for a while now, it's a shame that I can't relive any of those memories, but I understand why you deleted it. I mean, I don't think it was bad, or at least not for the time. Looking back on it, yeah, okay, it was romanticizing some pretty bad things and it was a bit all over the place with plot. But it's almost a nostalgia thing, I guess. I almost wish I had the chance to look it over again, but sometimes you just gotta leave the past in the past. I'm sorry it's something that seems to haunt you nowadays, I certainly hope one day you won't have to think much about it anymore! I just wanted to let you know that at the time it was great, and I loved it, and it was my favorite fanfiction. But now, it's almost like closure to see that it's in the past, you know? I'm glad for both you and any of us readers that realized our "mistakes" so to speak concerning it, that we've grown up and it's behind us now. I'm sorry to say I haven't read any of your work since, seeing as Shatter was actually one of the last Hetalia fanfics I read, but I hope you're doing well and wish you luck with whatever you do in the future!

Yeah, needless to say Shatter is something I wish would be completely erased from existence, I feel awful about it.

Nowadays I'm still writing Hetalia fic, hopefully much better than I used to be. Most of it is on my blog, though. I'm in a lot of ransoms but I think Hetalia will always have my heart. Thank you for your kind words!

//Hi! Sorry to bother, but I see everyone talking really good about this fanfiction called Shattered, but whenever I try and search for it, it just says that the page was not found or something like that; so I was wondering if you decided to remove it, or if it's just a problem with FFN ;;
Thank you and, again, sorry for bothering you--

As stated in my FFN profile, I deleted that fic a long long time ago. It's terrible, trust me, you're not missing out on much.

Hello ouo I just wanted to say you have a beautiful writing style ^^ and also, I noticed that on your fanfiction profile, a lot of the links you put in the bio don't actually go anywhere? They just link right back to the same page. Sorry if you already knew, if that's the case please ignore me XD but if you didn't, is there any chance you could put them somewhere on here?

Thank you so much, and have a wonderful day!! :heart:

Yes! Hi hello! I'm well aware of the link issue, unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it except maybe paste whole URLs into the bio, which I don't think FFN allows.

It's an issue with FFN not properly allowing/displaying outgoing links, not my programming of it. It's been going on at least a year.

It's np! I know everyone means well when they tell me. It's just frustrating because I can't do anything about it thanks to FFN :c

Thanks! <3
