Okay I know I’ve said this before but

Queer Platonic AmeIce you guys

America and Iceland never participating in slow dances because “we’re here to show off our moves,” and “that’s just a bit too touchy for us, sorry.”

America and Iceland trying explain to everyone that, “yes we are together, no we’re not dating.”  

America and Iceland bringing blankets to share at meetings and whenever someone makes one of those lewd “we know what’s going on under their” jokes America giving a guilty look and saying, “you got us, we are playing Pokemon under here” befor pulling out his DS and putting it away.

Iceland and America getting asked what they did for Valentine’s day and Iceland sarcastically replying with “what’s a Valentine’s day? I’ve never heard of it.”

Iceland and America kissing eachother, but only on the cheek and forehead

anonymous asked:

What languages they can speak the best excluding their native language?

Denmark: Well, I speak all the Nordic languages so I don’t know. Norwegian or Swedish maybe?

Norway: That’s unfair - Norwegian and Danish are far too similar. For me it’s Icelandic.

Iceland: Danish, I guess?

Sweden: Danish…

Finland: Swedish!

Nordics' reactions if their s/o were to fall under the ice while skating.

Norway- he’d probably just jump in right after you in an attempt to save you. He’d be panicked all right, but he does what he can to help you.

Denmark- probably shouts into the ice for a couple of seconds to see if you resurface or not. If you don’t he jumps in after you, if you do, he pulls you out and makes sure you don’t get sick.

Iceland- probably stands there panicking for a little and looking under the ice for you. He’d need to call someone for help, and you can bet he’ll be worried sick about you for the next week or so.

Sweden- another one to jump in the ice to save you. (Look at norway’s)

Finland- He’d be a mix of the other four. He’d be panicking and shouting your name before finally deciding to jump in if need be. Expect a lot of hot chocolate and blankets to warm you up after.

Nordic 5 on National Parks

Iceland: So, we need to come up with a surprise having to do with America’s National Parks. Consider heavily that this will be his birthday gift from us all. So what have we all picked?
Iceland: *pulls a piece of paper out of a box*
Iceland: From Everyone: …“Hershey National Park”…
Iceland: That’s…that’s an amusement park, not a National Park.
Sweden: Th'n how bout D'sneyl'nd?
Finland: Yeah! That’s nationally known!!
Norway: DIDNEY!!
Iceland: *facepalming* I knew this was a mistake…

History Raid: The Word ‘Viking’.

From Jesse L. Byock’s Viking Age Iceland:

“The word ‘Viking’ is used frequently in this book. The early Icelanders themselves used the term, although they did not, as is popularly done today, employ it in an ethnic sense. Almost surely, they would have understood the concept of a Viking Age, but to them the idea that Scandinavian society was a ‘Viking society’ would have been a misnomer. Throughout medieval Scandinavia, a víkingr (pl. víkingar) meant a pirate or freebooter, and víkingar were men who grouped together in bands to raid from boats. The term applied both to those who honorable (in Norse eyes) sailed across the sea to steal and to those who robbed neighbors closer to home.

“Although the meaning of the term víkingr is clear, its origin is uncertain. Probably it has something to do with the word vík, meaning an ‘inlet’ or a ‘bay’ – places where víkingar lived and lay in wait. The Icelanders did not, except in rare instances, raid each other from the coast. When they went abroad, however, especially to Norway, Icelandic men are frequently referred to in the written sources as having become Vikings for a time or having fought against Vikings. The description hann var víkingr, meaning ‘he was a Viking’, is not unusual. Sea-raiding voyages had their own term. They were called víking, and it was said that many Icelanders, while abroad or before settled down in Iceland, ‘went raiding’ (fór í víking).”
