The forever crappy & unfinished 2P! Animation in style of the beautiful world. (The last picture is a bit fast but otherwise it would be to large for tumblr) I actually planned Episodes but…. Oh and NO 2P!Russia doesn’t smile at 2P!China (even if it looks like it.)
The first outbreak of plague swept across England in 1348-49. It seems to have travelled across the south in bubonic form during the summer months of 1348, before mutating into the even more frightening pneumonic form with the onset of winter. It hit London in September 1348, and spread into East Anglia all along the coast early during the new year. By spring 1349, it was ravaging Wales and the Midlands, and by late summer, it had made the leap across the Irish Sea and had penetrated the north. The Scots were quick to take advantage of their English neighbours’ discomfort, raiding Durham in 1349. Whether they caught the plague by this action, or whether it found its way north via other means, it was taking its revenge on Scotland by 1350.
Extremely rushed and sloppy but I wanted to take the time to make a small contribution to a massive historical event that people seemingly over look because of 9/11.
In the month of September 1348, as you have read from the small exert above, the bubonic plague and spread through western Europe and made it’s way into England; soon spreading to Northern Ireland and Scotland.
I personally have not see anything relating to this moment in history in the Hetalia fandom. The Black Death was a major epidemic, and needs to be recognized for what it was and not what we perceive it to be.
Imagine these people, personified countries, everyday watching their people drop like flies to a sickness they didn’t understand and were to afraid to even find out. Imagine the emotional trauma. Having to live through such an ordeal would have put a normal human being in a psych ward, but even through this massive loss they are forced to keep going until they can’t carry on any longer and they die along with their country.
