Fans Speculations[]

When it comes to fanworks, some fans rather use the ongoing universe where they both are countries. This is due to the fact that if they are portrayed in a different universe, they both need to bear family names and some people use Kirkland since both of them were former British colonies, even though they are not related and don't view each other as brothers.
