(Fun-fact! = Headcanon time!)
Finland has seen Sweden cry three times in his life.
The moment that the kalmar union fell, when Berwald broke free from the man he had called brother after his betrayal. When he walked with Tino, them both quietly making their way back, silent tears fell from the Swede’s eyes. Tino did not dare question them.
When Peter was born and he got to hold him for the first time, feeling the soft bundle in his arms and know that they now were a family for real. Berwald was crying tears of joy, even let out a smile and a laugh. The sound was to this day the most beautiful Tino had ever heard.
As soon as Tino had told his good bye for the last time and given the ring back, turning on his heel to leave the house he used to call home. And by the gate, he turned around, and he saw Berwald on his knees, weeping for the life lost. But Tino took a breath and kept walking.
