"Empire" Germancest WIP

a-humble-hetalian:

The door creaks. Ludwig had finally arrived. Gilbert had been waiting for hours.

The albino turns to see his brother. Oh, his handsome little brother. Blue eyes, stern expression, slicked back blonde hair, and an admirable, strong body. That was Ludwig. That was his Ludwig.

Gilbert stands and goes to where Ludwig is. Because lately that is how things work: where Ludwig is, Gilbert goes. But that is understandable, Ludwig is the Prussian’s lifeline after all.

Tonight is one of those nights where Gilbert has little words to offer. Instead he expresses himself through his eyes, through his hands, through his touch. He grabs his brother’s face just after the German has put his briefcase down. He cups it between his hands, caresses each cheek with his thumbs. He looks at the German’s stern blue eyes, searching, telling, confessing, showing.

Ludwig doesn’t speak. He’s grown accustomed to the times his older brother prefers alternative forms of communication to speech. Instead, Ludwig looks too. To him Gilbert looks… tense. It seems to Ludwig that the albino’s frantic, electric, filled to the brim with some kind of energy, but his brother is concentrating on hiding all this array of chaos behind an iron mask.

Ludwig briefly wonders just what his brother is thinking, but it is a fleeting thought. The German nation knows just how well the Prussian can hide his thoughts and his intentions. If his older brother had something to say or something he needed, Ludwig knew he’d eventually say it. Otherwise, there was no telling with the former nation.

Gilbert must have found what he was looking for, because he leans in and kisses Ludwig. However, the blonde notices the kiss seems rushed, frantic. Has Gilbert found something, or has he only lost his patience and given up the search?

Anyway, the German responds. It is second nature. Action-reaction. If those pale lips were to come onto his, Ludwig would devour them in return. Ludwig saw their kisses as a venus fly trap of sorts. Only it worked both ways.

Gilbert’s hands move. One goes down to Ludwig’s hip, and the albino uses the position to make their bodies collide together. The other hand finds the back of Ludwig’s neck, and that hand is used to angle the blonde’s head.

Ludwig feels rather controlled, a puppet at the will of his master. He isn’t completely comfortable by this, but lets it remain so. He’d simply make sure the papers were inverted later on.

The German decides to at least let his wide, warm hands wander his brother’s back.

And oh, how Gilbert loves those hands. Wide, heavy, strong, and calloused by centuries of training. He loved every single finger, no matter how much his little brother complained of their uselessness for doing detailed labour. They may be inconvenient for delicate labour, but the albino wasn’t very fond of being handled delicately. So, Ludwig’s hands were simply perfect for what he liked.

—————

And that’s it for now, folks! What do you guys think so far?

I’m also really exited for this little project because it’s the first time I’m writing about our favorite boys in their nation personas. I’ve always written AUs for the German bros. So yikes, let’s see how I do!

Oh, and “Empire” is the tentative (very tentative) title.

hilarious-hetalia asked: What if dinosaurs spoke German and we would nyoom know

germanbrothers:

18 April 1864: The Battle of Dybbøl ends during the Second Schleswig War with a decisive Prussian victory.
So remember that time when I was gushing over Bismarck and I mentioned the Danish Duchies of Schleswig & Holstein and all the drama surrounding it? If you don’t, go read about it, because that sets the stage for this battle.
The Battle of Dybbøl took place during this Second Shleswig War with Austria & Prussia vs. Denmark. In this specific battle, Austria was over somewhere doing their nails or something so it was Prussia vs. Denmark.

Austria always preferred the “indoor battles” as opposed to the “outdoor battles.
So the battle was pretty much in the bag for the Prussians since the Danish were using older, outdated rifles. Prussians had brand-new rifles that were awesome and cool. The main difference between the Danish & Prussian rifles is that the Prussians could reload their rifles whilst laying down, while the Danish had to stand to reload theirs. You could see how this may have worked to their disadvantage.

The Danish, however, did have one advantage: A badass warship named Rolf Krake, which sounds sort of like some kind of German Lovecraft creature, which is terrifying. This shit was legit, and it basically proved that the Prussians had a shit Navy, because they couldn’t do anything against this badass.
The final numbers were: 11,000 Prussians (with 26,000 in reserve) vs. 5,000 Danes. Yeah. It was gonna suck.
So the Prussians lined up for battle and started bombarding Dybbøl around 2 in the morning on 18 April. By 10am, Rolf Krake was gettin’ down to business and started shelling out Prussian lines, but since Prussians are obviously the predecessor to Robocop, it did not hinder their advancement.

"These new changes to the Prussian uniform have really helped boost morale."
By 1:30 in the afternoon the Danes were down to their last resistance with an artillery duel across the Alssund, a narrow strait near Dybbøl. It collapsed, and victory went to the Prussians.
The Battle of Dybbøl was an interesting one, because whilst victory went to the Prussians, the mere presence of the intimidating Rolf Krake was enough to sap Prussian morale, and it showed the Danes that the way to get to the Prussians was not on land, but by sea. The Danish Navy then proceeded to go into high gear and destroy the Prussian & Austrian Navy at the battle of Heligoland on 9 May.
All in all, the Prussians suffered 1,200 casualties, whilst the Danish lost 4,800 - those including deserters. The Second Schleswig War would end  on 30 October with an Austrian & Prussian victory. It was also the very last victory of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, mostly because Prussia would come in and beat the shit out of it not long afterwards.

This is pretty much my staple reaction gif to anything that has to do with Austria around this time.

Anonymous asked: Sorry if I'm being intrusive, but should I do a coloured version of the 'Regret Message' illustration...? Pen and ink can be quite boring and I was contemplating doing coloured versions of some works.

I think a coloured version would be great, but at the end of the day it’s up to you! ^^ I have yet to publish your most recent submission but I can either publish it or hold off until a new version comes in, it’s up to you :)
