why do people keep portraying denmark as mean and violent in fanfics??
like, in canon, denmark is a hyper little dork who is always cheerful and loves his family. he literally bounces for attention, and makes it his mission to make the people he loves as happy as possible.
he puts himself down, and pressures himself to be a good brother to the nordics:
and, when his boss told him that he had to go raise taxes for norway, he saw how poor norway was and refused to do it, crying and promising to be a better brother. he blamed himself, blaming his own weakness, but swears to get stronger - not for himself, but to help his family.
LOOK AT THIS PERFECT LITTLE DORK
and seriously when people try to justify denmark as being a douche with real historical events it’s like ???? the character is not accountable for the real country’s history - we don’t hate germany for ww2, and we don’t hate america for slavery etc so that argument for denmark is invalid
BASICALLY THE MORAL OF THIS POST IS THAT APH DENMARK IS A CUTE LITTLE BUTTON WHO NEEDS TO BE LOVED AND PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS
|| Ivan, Natalya (Belarus) share the surname Braginsky
While Kalyna (Ukraine) shares a different surname, Lukomskiy. They each come from different mothers but same father. Natalya stayed with Ivan for awhile and feels closer to him thus wants to share the same last name. He is her home. While Ukraine rather take on her mothers last name since she was always closer to her mother.
Reminder that every time you insult Russia and call him a psycho, murdered, insane - whatever it may be - think about this:
Russia in canon material has been shown more than once to be hurt and beaten up. One of my favorite strips - it was adapted into one of the earlier seasons - has Russia under Tartar’s rule with him being scraped up and blood on his sleeves. Or one of the earlier strips about Bloody Sunday too shows Russia very vulnerable.
Yes, I get it. We’ve gotten a lot of material with Russia being this sadistic character (”kolkolkolkol xDDD” as the fans would say). But Russia is actually a really deep character. He really does try, but sometime the translation seems to come out wrong. He tries, and in things like this you can see his vulnerability.
I mean for Christ’s sake in the episode today his boss made him stand in front of a tank. That’s not someone else’s blood, that’s his blood. He’s constantly been beaten down, obviously his mental state isn’t going to be perfect. Look at how sad he looks in both.
In conclusion, Russia is more than just some psychotic freak he is complex with many emotions and if you tell me otherwise I will fight you.
