hand cross

I have this angsty headcanon that prussia actually is a little resentful about his childhood. Right from the moment he was born they shoved a sword into his hand, gave him a cross, pointed him in one direction after another, and told him that he was doing God’s work. Nations don’t get normal childhoods, but even among them prussia’s upbringing seems unique. After growing up and having raised a child himself, I hc he can’t help but be a bit angry becase he’s starting to realize that he never had much of a chance at another life. He didn’t even have a steady roof over his head until adulthood. And he knows better than to dwell on the bad stuff, but it catches up to him. He knows that, as a nation, he doesn’t exactly get much of a say in which direction his life takes, but sometimes he wonders if maybe he wouldn’t be a dead man walking if anyone had shown him how to be, or even let him try to be, anything other than a “soldier of god” back then.

every bioware animation
  • back of the head scratch
  • a character shaking their head in disbelief or disgust with hand on their forehead, looking down
  • that kiss animation used since origins and in every mass effect game where they very slowly go in, hesitate, bop their heads around, and really go in for the kiss 
  • when a character, usually female, talks and puts their two hands in front of them like a robot and shakes them to illustrate their point
  • a character leans back on one leg with their arms loose
  • the exit-stage-right an NPC does after a conversation ends
  • angry limp wrist pointing
  • neck/collar bone scratch 
  • a slow crossing of the arms in times of suspicion
  • that punch animation 
  • drinking alcohol and violently shaking head
  • a character gives a half smile with an eyebrow raised
  • pointing behind with thumb, body turns very slightly

i love the third years
