“I don’t know.” America sits, hunched forward, his chin cupped in his hands. “Maybe I should back off. Maybe I am being sensitive. Maybe I shouldn’t protest over such ‘little’ things. Maybe they’re right, and I need to calm down and let some of these small things go…. focus on bigger fights?”
Germany stands then, to face America. “No. You know that is not true. I can tell you from experience that that is not true. If you stop fighting for the small things… Alfred, I watched a government strip people of thier rights starting with the smallest things, things people thought too small to fight back against, until atrocities were commonplace. I was cocky. I thought that such things could never happen, not in my country, and I was wrong. Whatever anyone can say about your passions, you need to know that there is no right too small to defend.”
Germany extends a hand. “After all, we promised, America, after that war.”
America smiles slightly, he takes Germany’s outstretched hand, and he pulls himself up. “Never again.”

It’s funny how in fanfics Alfred is like this super confident smoothtalker who’s totally open with his sexuality (like Francis) and just goes up to Arthur like “what’s up cutie ;)” without wondering if he doesn’t swing that way for even a second.
But in reality Alfred would more likely be the most “no homo” person ever.
Alfred: *currently undressing Arthur with his eyes*
Matthew: If you want to bang him so much just go talk to him.
Alfred: What? No he’ll think I’m gay or something.
Matthew: *looks into the camera like he’s on the office*
