How do the Nordics cry?

Denmark|Matthias Køhler: Blubbering type of crier. Muttering, truncated, erratic breathing, clinched facial expressions and hunched posture. From time to time he punches things out of rage.

Norway|Lukas Losnedahl: The silent tears type. Inaudible crying that doesn’t draw attention. Sometimes signs of truncated breathing.

Iceland|Emil Steilsson: Simply sobbing. He has to be alone to cry. Quite audible, not to draw attention. Sniffles a lot too to keep avoid breathing erratically.

Finland|Tino Väinämöinen: Sniveling.  Audible, but soft crying, also prone to muttering and erratic breathing; May also show signs of drool or mucus.

Sweden|Berwald Oxenstierna: Silent tears with some signs of erratic breathing and trembling lips. Sometimes out of rage.

Hi ! Again I’m just posting old stuff from last year (yeah it’s the last time)

It’s just some extracts from a story. (The story was not really important, but I enjoyed doing this sketchs.)

And this Tumblr reached more than 2100 followers ! thanks a lot ! This is really amazing for me :) !! and really motivating *HUG* , (so I made a little merman…yeah…)

{I think you might have given this request to another blog that I follow. Totally adorable though, and I absolutely ADORE the Nordics.}

APH Denmark/Mathias:

He would be very pleasantly surprised. Once he felt their arms and legs around him, he would pull them in closer to his chest, watching their sleeping face. He would then comment about how cute they were in his head, trying to figure out how he was so lucky to have them. 

APH Norway/Lukas: 

He would be a bit miffed at first, but he wouldn’t mind in the least. He wouldn’t want to wake them up, so he would just stroke their body gently, listening to their breathing and focusing on the calm around the both of them. 

APH Iceland/Emil:

He would be flustered at first, unsure about how to handle it. In the end, he would just let it be, marveling at their sleeping body and how calm and just…at peace they were when they were asleep, kissing their forehead gently as not to wake them up and have them see his blush.

APH Sweden/Berwald:

He would be surprised, but a light smile would appear on his lips as he wrapped his arms protectively around them. He would just listen to them breathe as they slept, stroking their hair gently and enjoying the peaceful morning with them. 

APH Finland/Tino:

I would be surprised if he wasn’t the one holding them in a death koala grip. But, if his S/O was holding him, he would smile and chuckle lightly to himself, pulling them closer to him. He would love the way that they looked, all peaceful and content. He might even snap a picture, but is more likely to tell them in the morning over breakfast.

Cyanobacterias are known for causing significant environmental and health problems all over the world by causing toxic blooms. When inhaled it can lead to potentially fatal consequences. Yet they are also one of the reasons why life on earth exists in the first place by beeing the firsts organisms capable of producing oxygen as a by-product of photosynthesis. And if someone is wondering the green stuff on the image is what a typical cyanobacterial bloom looks like on a long exposure.
