The three Scandinavian brothers. unknown illustrator, publication from 1848. 

Scandinavism was a nationalist movement taking place in the Scandinavian countries in the mid-19th century. Similar to the German and Italian unification movements, it aimed to unite Denmark, Sweden and Norway (again)

Some befriending between Danish and Swedish academics had begun taking place already in the 1870s, inspired by the ideas of the age of enlightenment. This was however very limited.  In the early 1800s there was some hope that the danish crown prince coult inherit the Swedish throne which at that point lacked an heir, but an abrupt end was brought to it when Sweden and Denmark once again stood on opposite sides of a war..

The scandinavist movement is generally said to have started in the winter of 1838, when the university students at Copenhagen decided to cross the frozen Øresund to visit the Swedish students in Lund - and vice versa. The following summer, a student meeting was organised in copenhagen. In 1843, another scandinavist student meeting took place in Uppsala. The early “student scandinavism” was feared and met with great scepticism by the leading elite, as it was associated with liberalism. It has been described as “the youth rebellion of the 1840s”

The peak of student scandinavism was in 1845, when the most famous of the student meetings took place. This time, students from the university of Christiania (Oslo) also joined the party (the norwegians were the most sceptical to scandinavism, as it strongly collided with the Norwegian nationalism). In the famous “riding house speech” the danish politician Orla Lehmann called the people to promise to defend all of Scandinavia. two year later, that also became necessary; Prussia and the North german confederation attempted to invade Schleswig-Holstein, two partly german-speaking duchies under the danish crown. Sweden-Norway did not take part in the war, but had promised to intervene if Denmark proper was invaded. Several volunteers from Norway and Sweden also fought in the war. In the end, Denmark won the war.

After this, scandinavism was no longer seen as a dangerous youth movement; the 1848 revolution in denmark meant liberalism and democracy was not a treath, and the original student scandinavists had now grown up and taken up important positions in society. As the Danish king Fredrik VII had no children, there were also new hopes of dynastic scandinavism.

The scandinavist movement remainded relatively quiet for the first part of the 1850s, but got a boost in 1856 when some active efforts to ignite cooperation was made. Around this time, the western powers discovered scandinavism; having just fought the crimean war, they saw it as a possible power block against russian expansion. there were also talks between Oscar I of Sweden-Norway and Fredrik VII of Denmarks of a possible alliance, but sadly it came to nothing. In 1859, the relations between Norway and Sweden also took a turn to the worse.

the conflict regarding Schleswig-Holstein lead to war once again in 1864 when Prussia and Austria attacked Denmark. Denmark had no chance against the better equipped and larger armies, and was forced to give away both schleswig and holstein. For the scandinavists, the refusal of Norway and Sweden to help Denmark in the war was seen as a great betrayal, and is often said to have killed the movement off for good. There was still some activity after this, and some scandinavist organisations were created in all of the countries.

Scandinavism had always been a narrow elite movement, mainly supported by the educated people. It also had its enemies; the norwegian nationalists, the nobility in sweden, and the danish ruling elite(in the beginning). The movement also lacked a common enemy - Sweden had Russia and Denmark Germany - and the three countries had their traditional ties to different directions - Sweden to the east, Norway westwards, and Denmark to the south.

However, scandinavism was not an entire failure. The cooperation initiated by the scandinavists lead the way towards further interscandinavian cooperation in the future - this time without the political reasons but simply for practical purposes. The movement has also been said to have greatly improved the images the scandinavian nations had of each other. For almost 300 years, Sweden and Denmark had been arch enemies, and after the independence of norway in 1814, hatred towards both its neighbours was growing. Nowadays, the Nordic countries cooperate closely and are on great terms with each other. Scandinavism played a big role in starting this improvement.

Hans Tegner “The Snow Queen”

Just take a look at that throne of the Snow Queen, only Hel herself could sit on such a throne.

“…The Northern Lights flamed so brightly that one could count them where they stood highest and lowest. In the midst of this immense empty snow hall was a frozen lake, which had burst into a thousand pieces; but each piece was like the rest, so that it was a perfect work of art; and in the middle of the lake sat the Snow Queen when she was at home, and then she said that she sat in the mirror of reason, and that this was the only one, and the best in the world…”

Anaïs, (ti scrivo)
tre minuti dopo che te ne sei andata. No, non posso farne a meno.
Ti dico ciò che già sai: ti amo.
Parole che ho distrutto più e più volte

Même si Jian Yi , Zhang Xi , He Tian et Guan Shan sont tous tirés d'un webcomic chinois et le sont à priori eux aussi , j'aime aussi les imaginer avec des traits européens (s'ils existaient réellement).
Jian Yi me rappellerait plus un garçon d'un pays scandinave , avec une peau très claire , de légères tâches de rousseur , des sourcils presques inexistants , des lèvres fines… Il serait à la pointe de la mode , porterait super bien ses tenues avec sa grande taille , sa corpulence fine… Gentil avec tout le monde , il serait apprécié de tous et serait un peu la curiosité de son lycée avec son physique particulier.
Zhang Xi , je le vois TOTALEMENT avec des traits occidentaux. De grands yeux , des sourcils légèrement broussailleux , des cheveux courts en bataille , un air un peu sauvage , un visage doux comme celui d'un enfant mais à la fois dur et grave… Il porterait toujours des tenues hyper simples , se prendrait pas la tête avec ça. Un mec totalement blasé sur tout mais avec la tête sur les épaules. Ne dit rien mais n'en pense pas moins.

À la rigueur je pourrais avec HT . Sa coupe de cheveux , sa couleur de cheveux , ses yeux un peu perçant. Mais d'un autre côté… Il me rappellerait presque les jeunes de ma ville , logés dans les quartiers un peu huppés de Bellecour ou Fourvière , que je croise souvent quand je m'y promène. L'air arrogant , avec lesquels on n'a pas trop envie de se frotter ou de sympathiser. Hyper grand et bien sapé , toujours entouré de sa “fidèle” bande de potes. Il fumerait à un très jeune âge pour être dans le coup. Il paraîtrait hyper volage mais aurait en fait lui aussi la tête bien sur les épaules. Il serait sociable mais à la fois inaccessible. Un jeune homme plein de mystères…
Et Guan Shan. Il serait le garçon un peu edgy avec une bande de potes bien particulière. Souvent dehors avec eux , errant sans but défini. Il pourrait te sortir des groupes de Drum and Bass ou de Neurofunk dont tu ne soupçonnais même pas l'existence. Je le verrais bien fumer une clope , le soir , dans les rues étroites de St Jean , dans le Vieux Lyon. Atypique , s'éloignant moralement de la norme , il se démarquerait physiquement avec sa fameuse undercut et ses cheveux rouges pâle. Assez grand , avec un corps longiligne , il s'habillerait un peu comme Zhang Xi: à la cool , sans prise de tête….
