- Aph Germany: do you want to hold my hand?
- Aph Italy: yes!!
- Aph Italy: *looks down at Germany's hand*
- Aph Germany's hand: *the italian™ hand*
- Aph Italy: nevermind, i've had enough of this ridicule
may I add another thing about Paint It White? In the last scene, when both Italy and Germany are shown to discuss with the leader of the pictonians, it looks like Germany is holding Italy's hand. So, that's my personal headcanon, at least. You can take it both platonically and romantically
