Week 011: Fairytales // The Snowdrop

Title: The Snowdrop
Rating: G
Genre: General
Characters/Pairings: Iceland, Norway
Summary: Iceland hasn't gotten rid of the book Denmark gave him.
Words: 300!
Notes: Okay, so. Background on this one: it draws from Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snowdrop". Basically, Iceland = the snowdrop, a mis-fated flower that was coaxed into blooming early and ended up in a book. Also, historically, Iceland kind of was like...this shiny new thing that Denmark got along with Norway but kind of let go to hell in a handbasket.

Week 011 ✘Fairytales ✘ Rainbow Serpent

Title: Rainbow Serpent
Rating: G
Genre: General; History.
Characters: Australia, England; OC – Koori.
Summary: England taught him to throw the stories out from his mind from when he was very young – but they remained dear as childhood fairytales.
Words: 263
Notes: Through the cut!

( at one and the same time fragments of a catechism, a liturgical manual, a history of civilisation, a geography textbook )

Week 11 - Fairy Tales - "A Loss of Religion"

Title: A Loss of Religion
Rating: PG-13ish
Words: 295
Summary: The fire drove France mad long before the guillotine.
Notes: Please don't take this to mean that I'm horribly critical of the Christian faith. The faith itself isn't so bad, my issues come when people use a doctrine of peace and love to justify hate and fear; this was especially common during the middle ages. As you know, it also happened in the New World in places such as Salem. Also, this ties into the idea that France, today, is a very secular country. They have religious freedom, but it's NOT incorporated into the government at all. So I think that cynicism might go back quite far for a being that has a longer memory than humans.


Week 011: Fairytale // Plumage

Title: Plumage
Rating: G
Genre: General.
Characters: Russia.
Words: 340...sob. I can't bring myself to take out forty words though...
Summary: Those that are free, we wish to shackle to ourselves almost as if to prove we can. Their despair is our creation and undoing.
Notes: This drabble is just a tiiiiiny bit over. But I found it impossible to crop without taking out vital words, so...I hope you'll excuse it? D:
