How would Lithuania, Iceland, America and Prussia react to their s/o crying because of the stress and their parents being harsh on them? I'm sorry, I need some mood lifting words...
Lithuania: He’d be very understanding and would listen to their problems. He’d try to calm them down and would offer his help to them on any level he can.
Iceland: he’d be rather confused by their parents reaction; in his eyes, they should be encouraging them! He’d offer to help and would tell them that everything will be fine
America: dUDE first of all he’d be pretty upset by their parents behaviour. Then, he’d say that even though school is important, their life doesn’t depend on it. Everything will be fine if they’d give their best
Prussia: “you know, that one grade won’t determine your future… It will be fine, believe me! You don’t have to win ever battle to win the war, darling!”
Hey hey, I have a request- how would Germany react if the event from "Ich liebe dich" happened in real life? Like if his s/o conforted him like that? Really curious to see your view of it :)
Honestly, you and I seem to characterise Germany in a very similar way. That said, here it becomes a bit more technical:
I believe, he, as the personification of Germany, still feels incredibly guilty for what happened. Not only because of the millions of lives that were lost, but also because of the question ‘why?’ Why did he believe the lies? Why didn’t he stop the war? Why didn’t he stop the executions? But not only that. He also feels sorry for the Germans. Not only the generation that had no choice but to die for a lost cause, but also the ones that never had something to do with the third Reich but still have to bear the burden of something they’ve never committed - at least in the eyes of the world. He feels guilty that so many people - to this day - hear Germany and can only think of the war - he wouldn’t have a problem if they’d just blame the administration or the country as a construct, but it deeply hurts him that German people have to take the blame for atrocities they have only heard of in their history classes. Don’t get me wrong, he has no intention of letting the memories fade away of what happened - everything but, really. However, he doesn’t want his people of today to suffer because of something they could not influence.
Because of this fact, I’d believe this topic would make him both sad, angry with himself and angry with the people who can’t differ from the past to now and he’d still feel an incredible amount of guilt. In my eyes, this might be one of the very few cases where he could actually start to cry. Crying is something he really doesn’t do. Because he wasn’t allowed to cry in his darkest hours. For a man to cry was seen as an unbelievably weak move in the ideology of the third Reich. Nevertheless, this situation would probably cause this I-can’t-cry-idea to crack. Also as a sign for himself that he isn’t who he used to be anymore.
While rummaging through a box he found in the attic, England uncovers some old photos, along with old memories.
(These took so long to make, I hope you guys like them! I was trying to put subtle stuff in the photos to try and tell a story, I’ve never done it before so it was good practice! I might end up writing something for this if I decide to stop being lazy.)
