Summary: Ace pilot America is on a mission for the World Military when a chance encounter with a group of sky-pirates leads him to team up with their captain, England, against a malevolent group that wants to fill the sky with zeppelins. [USxUK- Steampunk AU]
Chapter Summary: “Anyway, the other thing I considered was… and you’ll probably think this is dorky, but I thought it was an amazing idea for a moment. My favorite comic book character, the Aquila Avenger? But then I realized that maybe that’s a bad idea because--- “

Finland’s jaw dropped and he practically jumped in excitement. “The Aquila Avenger? That’s a great idea!”

America shot him a confused look. “I-I decided it was a bad idea because… well I’m not really representing Aquila any longer. Treason against the military is considered,” he lowered his voice, sounding ashamed, “treason against your country. You’re no longer a citizen.”
Author's Note: So yes, an update. I don't really know what to say. This fic is still really special to me, and I have every intention of finishing it. I hope that you'll follow me to the end of this journey, and I hope that won't be too much longer. *laugh*

This is the perfect time to go for the Kosmider base. They’ll never know we’re coming. We’ve been handed a huge advantage. )

Chapter Summary: America leaned forward and pressed his finger to the map, working to pinpoint the coordinates on the aged and stained piece of parchment before him.

“We’ll need to go up far north, almost to the pole. It’s crazy that they’d build something up that far. It’s cold and dangerous, and there are all those mountains, but hell, the Kosmider doesn’t seem to shy away from crazy…”
Author's Note: There aren't enough apologies in the world for the lack of fic updates recently. I have had... so many issues, but I still don't think that's a fair enough excuse. I love you all, and I still love all of my stories. I just haven't been able to dedicate to them the time they deserve. Hopefully I can do that now. Thanks so much for sticking around if you're still here. I do have some fanarts that I need to update my resource post with, and I'll get to that soon. Also, I know I pimped it once before, but I do have a FIC TUMBLR. I post fic snippets, artwork, resource stuff, and random misc. for all of my fics over there. Feel free to follow it!

America here was just talking to us about the location of this Kosmider base. It sounds like a deathtrap, but that’s nothing we can’t handle. )

Chapter Summary: The Ukko were always up for a fight, providing that the fight meant something. They were confident in their strength, and deservedly so. They weren’t called the rulers of the northern skies for no reason. They fought with a wide variety of weapons, all of them having perfected their respective arts, and they were hardy and… tough. Living constantly in that weather alone was admirable, England thought.

He would be heading up north to rendezvous with the Ukko, and he planned on leaving later that day. The less time wasted, the better.
Author's Note: An extra long chapter to at least... sort of make up for lack of updates. Sorry, everyone! Fanarts: America and England by [livejournal.com profile] kazlicya, Italy and Romano by DarqueCrystal, America and England by [livejournal.com profile] gloomybunny, America, Switzerland, and Prussia and Switzerland by Chaolover2, Belgium by LiveOak, and Belarus by [livejournal.com profile] revoiment_hika. THANK YOU TO ALL! Please give these artists props if you can!

For me though, being a pirate doesn’t mean that I’m going to sacrifice being a gentleman... )

Chapter Summary: Did he really want things to be normal again?

Did he want to return to the military, and have to follow every order dutifully, for fear of them suspecting him of criminal activities again? Did he want to never be able to question them again, because surely even if the judge decreed him not guilty, they’d still keep an extra close watch on him?
Author's Note: A few fanarts! America, England, Russia, Belarus, Lithuania by Akira-chan01, AmericaxEngland by Creepynurse, America and Switzerland, both by Chao-lover2. Thank you so much! ♥

England smacked his cheek lightly. “No faking it, all right? You don’t need to force a smile for me.”  )

Chapter Summary: He thought, in the light, that it was even more apparent that the man had been crying. England could see poorly concealed tear tracks on his cheeks. His chest tightened. What had made him cry?

And he felt anger well up within him also. If someone had hurt America to the point that he was acting like this, Captain Kirkland very much wanted to give them a visit.
Author's Note: I've been sick and vacationing, and thus I've only been able to get exchange fics done for the last month or so for the most part. Hope to get on a better update schedule for ALL my chapter fics now. A couple of fanarts: Prussia, Belarus, and America by Chao-Lover2, and Skeleton Fleet of the Sky and England, both by Sallydawn!

Guess being a hero just gets you in trouble, huh? )

Chapter Summary: “I know you want a world without heroes or whatever, Lithuania but…” He clenched his eyes. “This isn’t that world, okay? There are really awful people and there are good people and… okay maybe there are even a few people who aren’t bad or good, really.”

“America…”

“So let ME be a hero, okay?” he continued. “It’s what I want to be, all right?”
Author's Note: Um basically this chapter is even bigger than the last one, and it's also the first chapter of this fic to reach (and surpass) 4k? I hope that extra length makes up for the delay in updating. Even though this chapter has been planned in detail from the beginning, I struggled a lot with writing it. A couple of fanworks: First, this gorgeous AmericaxEngland by [livejournal.com profile] socialholic. Secondly, several months ago a group of APH fans asked if they could cosplay the story! You can see their TOTALLY EPIC PHOTOSHOOT here.

“I see why Russia was so threatened by you… there really is no stopping you, is there? )

Chapter Summary: “Why is he going after the sky?” America’s lips formed a thin line, and his teeth were pressed together in anger.

“If he controls the sky, he controls the world,” Lithuania said. “People still travel by sea, and people still travel by land, of course. But if you own the sky? You’re above all of that.”

“The sky is at the top of the world,” America added, his voice quiet.
Author's Note: This is one of those chapters that has just been so vivid in my mind since I started the fic. Let's just say it's an important one. It's also the longest chapter to date. I hope you all enjoy it!

All he had to do, was find a story... )

Chapter Summary: “Say, you’re the one meeting with Kirkland, right?”

America’s cheeks pinked. “Y-yeah! How did you know?”

Hungary shrugged, the poofy short sleeves of her dress moving with her shoulders. “He radioed me and told me to keep a watch for you. He mentioned that you were a military man. Used to be, this place was the pub for pirates. That was back when my parents and grandparents owned it. But… there aren’t many pirates anymore, so we don’t get them as often.”
Author's Note: Thank you to all of the reviewers on the last chapter! Also, two beautiful new fanarts, both by [livejournal.com profile] kiirusama: AmericaxEngland (color) and AmericaxEngland (black and white). ♥

England was absolutely not fretting over preparing for his date with America... )

Chapter Summary: Japan merely smiled. “I thought as much. I wasn’t going to take France’s word for it, so I wanted to find out myself. I hope you don’t mind…”

“Mind… what?” America asked, his throat feeling rather dry.

Japan leaned forward, cocking his head to one side and giving him a curious look. “America, are you perhaps, in love with this England?”
Author's Note: Another very timely update! Cerulean should be receiving an update soon as well. Hope you enjoy this chapter! :D

I’m telling you Japan, the Aquila Avenger is the coolest superhero of all time. )

Chapter Summary: “Well get to it. Did you radio me for no reason, you git?”

“Jeez, England. Be patient…”

“Patience is a virtue you hardly have yourself, so don’t expect it of me.”

America frowned. He wanted to ask England, he really did. And to be honest, England had sounded sort of expectant, like he was waiting for America to ask about their… get together.

“S-so about that date,” America finally said, pretending to be casual, although his heart was racing.
Author's Note: A TIMELY UPDATE. *throws confetti.* Some awesome fanarts: AmericaxEngland by [livejournal.com profile] mayurasan, Belarus by [livejournal.com profile] blulious, AmericaxEngland by Vermillion-Shadows, and America and England by LikeaMelodyinMyHead. Please let these artists know how amazing they are if you have the time. :D

Chapter Summary: America cleared his throat, leaning forward as if telling a secret. “Ladies, are you at all familiar with the Kosmider?”

“Who isn’t?” Zimbabwe rolled her eyes and adjusted herself so her back was to the side of the stall. “We’re traveling merchants, take our wares to markets all around the world, but we’ve been stuck here for weeks ‘cause we don’t want to mess with them.”

America nodded. “Great!” He exclaimed. Zimbabwe leveled him a glare. “Not great that you’re stuck here, but great that you know about the Kosmider; because um, I’m actually here trying to find information about that.”
Author's Note: ...I really need to get better at these updates. I've had kind of a rough few months. Feeling a bit better now, and hopefully that will stay. I did get some beautiful fanarts, so I'm going to pimp them out for the well deserving artists! America/England by [livejournal.com profile] harlequinzombie, England by [livejournal.com profile] soubi_tatsumi, England by kia-namida, America's Crew (America, Japan, Canada, France) by Brainiac6Techgirl, America by [livejournal.com profile] luvpixel.

Chapter Summary: “What are your orders, Captain?” France inquired, and his tone dared America. He could tell that France was challenging him. Do we do what is right, or do we do what we've been told to? Those were the unspoken words.
Author's Note: I can't believe how long I delayed on this chapter. The holiday exchanges took longer than I thought, and Hero Frequency technically isn't done yet (it will be very soon!). But I really owed you all a chapter of this, and I expect to be on a fairly frequent updating schedule from now on. I am so, so sorry!

Now as for how a love story between a pirate captain and a military captain ends up, you’re going to have to fill me in. I expect to be told the ending! )

Chapter Summary: “There is nothing we can do down here on the ground, Spain. We are creatures of the sky, wouldn’t you agree?”

“Yes but…”

“I am not about to let the Kosmider sit by and continue ransacking the skies,” England cut him off. “We’re strong, my crew. And as much as it was difficult for me to believe at first, we have a trustworthy ally in America.”

Spain ran his fingers over the grooved wood of the door. “You wish to fight?”

England shook his head in the positive, and his expression and posture radiated conviction. “I do.”
Author's Note: Delay of fail. So sorry. Thanks so much for reading! Comments appreciated. :)

Chapter Summary: “Remember what I told you about the danger the sky-pirates present to our plans, Lithuania?”

“Yes…”

“This boy could be just as dangerous, I think,” Russia continued. “He is a link between the pirates and the military, and it’s even more than that. He’s strong, idealistic, and he’s just been given a position of power that I really do not approve of. It is he who will be in charge of acting against us, it appears.”
Author's Note: Thanks for all the comments on the last chapter. You all have... been so amazing recently. Get ready for things to really kick into gear in this and upcoming chapters. ;)

Chapter Summary: It was cute the way England was flushed deep when they pulled away; the crimson stain spreading across his face and he swore, all the way to his ears. His eyes had been wide, their brilliant green only accentuated by the red of his cheeks.

After he’d leapt away, and he knew he’d looked at England as if he, America, had done something terribly wrong.

He hoped he hadn’t given England the wrong idea by reacting in such a manner.

…Whatever the hell the right idea was anyway.
Author's Note: I feel pretty lame not getting an update out for such a long time, but I started back class and had a convention and... was just overall insanely stressed. I'm so sorry. That being said, I can't thank you all enough for the... amazing feedback on chapter seventeen. And also, for the gorgeous art from [livejournal.com profile] technoranma (here), [livejournal.com profile] colevic (here), and [livejournal.com profile] supertobi (here). I hope this chapter is at least somewhat worth the wait!

Chapter Summary: He thought, that he really must have been the biggest fool this side of the Paradi Sea. America was just about the last person who he should have allowed to slip into his heart like this. He was military. A blasted soldier! And had all his hatred and anger toward that meant nothing, when now, just one flash of America’s almost ever present smile caused him to practically forget that he was even part of that institution he so despised?
Author's Note: Sorry for the two week delay. I struggled a lot with getting this chapter done, as it's... quite important. ;) I can't thank [livejournal.com profile] abarero and [livejournal.com profile] sakuratsukikage enough for their assistance on this chapter.

Chapter Summary: But it was that England had accepted, that England hadn’t shoved him off and stormed to his own cabin, that shocked him. Those weren’t the actions of a comrade, but the actions of something more. A close friend, at least.

And he really liked that. Somewhere along the line, it had ceased mattering much to America that England was a pirate. There were times in which he’d forget that he was one entirely.

England was England. It was as simple as that.
Author's Note: [livejournal.com profile] colevic did a gorgeous fanart for chapter fifteen. Check it out HERE!

“Awesome.” Prussia smacked America on the back and stood up. “I’m gonna go drink my mid-morning beer… now that my hangover’s gone.”  )

Chapter Summary: England sighed and rubbed his forehead, then cursed inwardly that Switzerland just had to knock Prussia out so early. If he hadn’t, perhaps he wouldn’t have interrupted him and America and…

His cheeks grew hot. Never mind, it was good that he did. America had said himself that his actions didn’t mean anything after all. And the idea of doing something that meant nothing with the aviator left him feeling hollow and just a little bit queasy.
Author's Note: Something big happens in this chapter. ;) And sorry for the slightly late update. I was going to update earlier, but I ended up writing To the Moon and Beyond and that needed to be done by a deadline.

“The mighty Captain Kirkland,” America quipped, mock dramatically, “taken out by a preteen girl.”  )
