“My love,” Loki murmured softly, “you’re going to be fine, you’ll get through this, I know you will.”
“How?” You struggled to ask between sobs, tears rolling down your cheeks in droves and nose plugging. You hated being what felt like an ugly crier, but it didn’t matter, you were too upset to stop..
Loki pulled you tight to his chest, holding you close, “because I have infinite faith in you, you have gone through so much and you will continue to do so, because you are so brave and so strong.”
Leaning into his chilly embrace, face against his chest and just trying to breathe deeply, you nodded. You didn’t believe him, not really, but you appreciated his faith in you. Perhaps if Loki believed it, maybe you could grow to believe it as well.
He was always about fairytales and dragons. You were the only family he had left and you, him. He had often called you a Princess and he the Dragon who guards the tower she was locked in. Smaug: “I suppose there will come a time for the Dragon who loves his friend dearly, will die willingly by the Prince’s mighty sword if it means the life of his friend will be spared. When that day arrives, I pray you will not cry as the Princess did. You’re an ugly crier, really.”
Thorin: “‘The Dragon’ is dead. Erebor is under her protection now.”
Gandalf: “You had taken your revenge on the Dragon, you had given your word to spare her life. Your bloodshed ends here.”
Thranduil: “Erebor, it is a code to the immeasurable assets that it holds across the world is it not? Very well, I offer you my help - to find the girl - in exchange, you will return what is mine, precious rare gems, known to only a very few, owned by even fewer in this world.”

2P!Denmark|Markel Køhler: Silent tears and a poker face. The only sign to prove Markel is crying are the tears dripping on his cheeks. His expression is unchanged, but his eyes are pooly and red.
2P!Norway|Lokki Losnedahl: Lokki always lets out silent sobs when he’s crying. He bites his lips a lot and tries to muffle his sobbing. He’s far from being an ugly crier, as his tears slowly pull into his eyes before escaping on his cheeks. He rarely cries in front of others.
2P!Iceland|Egil Steilsson: Avoid Egil at all costs! He is an angry crier. He usually simply bursts out in frustration and he is going to cut and shoot everything in a 9 feet radius. He’s not silent, he’s not calm, he just lets all his anger out through his aggressive tears. He’ll probably cut you and then cry in your deep wounds.
2P!Finland|Thurston Väinämöinen: Another guy that cries out of frustration, or after an important loss. Thurston screams a lot when he’s bailing his eyes out, be it out of pain or anger. His vision gets blurry fast and he needs to repeatedly wipe his tears away.
2P!Sweden|Bernard Oxenstierna: Bernard lets all of his sadness out. He’s usually sobbing forcefully and his face becomes quite a mess. His nose starts running and his voice cracks a lot. Ber doesn’t like being seen like this.
I was once told I was an ugly crier, now whenever I cry I cover my face and hide it from everyone.
I was once looked at funny and laughed at because my laugh was too loud and my mouth opened too wide so now whenever I laugh I cover my mouth and look down.
I was bullied about my eyes and how they were “too big” so now I try my hardest not to look at people for too long because I’m afraid they’ll notice.
I’ve been told my forehead is too big so now when I take a picture of myself, I cut it out of the frame.
You don’t realise how much the things people say affect you until you remember the person you used to be. That’s what I hate about this world, people have no trouble telling someone they aren’t good enough.
Grow up and let someone laugh the way they want to (M.R)
