A/N: EngIta AU I’ve had rattling around in my head for what feels like years but only just now got out into words. It was inspired by this old text post, and originally was an EngIta AU me and my friend discussed, but she decided to use the concept for Osomatsu-san fic and I kept it for Hetalia fic. It’s been a while since I posted anything EngIta, so I hope this is alright!
Feliciano was unloading the books he’d brought
from the new little shop a few blocks down the street- some recipe books, some
poetry, some art, and absolutely none with actual plot-based content.
Which is why he was very surprised to find an
old, hardcover book amid his shiny new paperbacks, and he blinked. He found a
post-it note on the front cover that said, “Freebie for your first purchase
here.” He hadn’t realized until just now why the friendly old man at the shop
had winked at him- ah! It must have been because he slipped him a free book!
The brown spine was old and cracked, but on it
was written in old bronze lettering: The Book of Fictives, Vol. 314.
UsUk: Arthur doesn’t take on the last name ‘Jones’ entirely, but he does add it to his own with a hyphen.
Angel Pair: Veneziano Kirkland. Done and done.
who chooses where to go for the honeymoon
UsUk: Arthur. He doesn’t trust Alfred with that kind of responsibility.
Angel Pair: Veneziano, he wants to prove how romantic he can be. Plus, he probably has more connections than Arthur, since he tends to get along with others better.
who talks about the other more without noticing
UsUk: Alfred, he tends to ramble a lot, and he doesn’t happen to keep track of exactly what it is he’s talking about. So Arthur becomes a conversation topic more often than he can remember.
Angel Pair: I’d say they do this in equal shares. Arthur ends up musing aloud what he can do to be a better partner to Veneziano more often than he’ll admit. Meanwhile, Veneziano easily swerves off course from whatever topic he was on to discussing Arthur if anything he was saying reminded him of the blond in the slightest.
who forces the couples halloween costumes
UsUk: Without a doubt Alfred. After the whole “Batman and Robin” thing, he loves the idea of dressing up and letting Arthur be his partner in crime. Arthur goes along with it to make him happy.
Angel Pair: Veneziano, because let’s face it, Arthur can’t say no to that face.
who shows up at the other’s work randomly with gifts
UsUk: Alfred. He thinks Arthur is too likely to overwork himself, and as a hero, he simply can’t allow that.
Angel Pair: Arthur. He would want to do it just to see Veneziano smile, and each time Veneziano thanks him, he’s already planning another surprise visit.
who’s the first one to fix things after a fight
UsUk: Alfred would attempt to fix things first, but if that doesn’t work, they’ll both stubbornly sulk about the fight for a while. Eventually, Alfred will try again, and he’ll be successful. Mainly just because Arthur doesn’t like being angry with him longer than a few days.
Angel Pair: It depends on the fight. If Arthur’s the cause of it, he’s definitely going to be the first to try to fix things, because he can’t deal with seeing Veneziano upset, especially not when he’s specifically upset with him. If Veneziano is the reason behind it, he’ll immediately try to win back Arthur’s favour (Which won’t take long because, again, Arthur can’t say no to that face).
When Feliciano awoke, the first thing that registered was how much his feet hurt. He shuddered and clutched at the sheets, gritting his teeth before letting out a pained breath in a low hiss, struggling to sit up. He felt lethargic and a bit light-headed, and he wasn’t sure if it was because of the pain or because of the last lingering effects of the sleeping draught- probably both. He looked down to find his feet bandaged and wrapped up tightly, in a very meticulously wound pattern of bandages meant to keep his feet in a single position, unable to move.
