London Burning by honeyroastedferrets London Burning by honeyroastedferrets
Edit:

Yes, it bares a resemblance to a Hetalia character. That's cause it started as a fanart sketch, but it kind of developed into more. Sort of dedicated to the people injured and property damaged during the London Riots. It's been something that has been heavy on my mind lately.

It's awful, But really, the backlash of volunteers in London cleaning up after the riots is really inspiring. <3

I originally put this into some Hetalia groups, but... the more I think about it, the more I don't really want it to be associated as a fanart piece. Cause it's so much more than that. So I'm removing it from the groups and taking it out of my fanart folder.

Full view please.

Edits#2: Holy crap. This is what I get for not checking my Deviantart account for a month... Thanks for the spot in 2011 timeline!!!

Riots and looting break out in North London, lasting 4 days and eventually spreading to several London boroughs and other English cities.

I'm so lucky I wasn't in the country for this...I live really near London so I don't want to think about what could've happened.

It's pretty funny how some one in USA did this, Cos i live in the uk and TBH Uk is downhill messing up all the time. people in my Town tried to start a Riot when it happen ...not just London that was up northwest of England. But thing is why was it started? coz our government was doing a bad job (And still is) Or about a Guy being shot? pft i don't know these days...I also thought the protest in London was just as bad too..
