Title: Don't Ask Why
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairing: Germany/Sweden
Summary: Eating lunch in comfortable silence.
Warnings: What the hell. None. What? What?!

Sweden wasn’t exactly sure when it had started.

Just that one day, during a break at a world meeting somewhere or another, he had been walking around outside with his bagged lunch and happened upon Germany, placidly sitting on a bench with his lunch. A mutual nod of acknowledgment passed, and Germany scooted over; nothing else was said, verbal or otherwise.

Sweden obliged.

He did the next time, and the next time, and at some point along the way it had become an unspoken - thing - of theirs. At least once during the meeting sessions, they would run into each other on the way in or out the door, in a hallway, something; either Sweden would raise an eyebrow, or Germany would flat-out ask when he wanted to meet, but regardless of how it happened, something was arranged.

They never talked, simply sat, and ate their lunch in mutual silence, and neither of them thought it too strange. It was peaceful, Sweden thought, after spending all morning in the clamor and chaos of the meeting room. Plus, even outside of meetings, he had to deal with Denmark and Finland’s chattering; he assumed Germany felt the same about Prussia and Italy.

He chewed on his apple and mused about that, beside Germany on yet another bench, in yet another country. Neither of them were too good with words, even though Germany led the meetings.

His thoughts were interrupted when Germany’s hand emerged from his peripheral vision, holding out a small doughnut in offering.

Ah, now this, it was a recent development. Sweden took it, not meeting Germany’s eyes, and mumbled a thanks; Germany coughed, shifted, politely responded in turn.

Sweden looked down at the doughnut, and then to his own lunch, trying to pick out something to offer Germany in turn. He frowned. He should have thought of that. Lately they had been bringing a little extra something, trading cuisines, he supposed. Sometimes a word or two (on Sweden’s part) would be spoken, explaining or thanking or offering - Germany, very rarely, offered a few minutes of one-sided conversation about some food he particularly liked. Cake, Sweden remembered, suddenly, Germany liked cake.

He looked down at the doughnut again, and over at Germany...and Germany’s physique. For seemingly having a sweet tooth, he sure was fit.

“Do you...do you not like doughnuts?” Germany asked, out of the blue.

Sweden started and looked at Germany; Germany faced forward and coughed, again.

“It’s not as if you’re obligated to take it,” Germany finally said, glancing at Sweden.

“S’not that,” Sweden mumbled, turning over the pastry in his hands. It looked very small, comparatively.

Germany raised his eyebrows - Sweden thought Germany was probably surprised he was speaking.

“I didn’ bring ya anythin’ - er, of my own,” Sweden explained, blushing at his thoughtlessness.

“You’re not obligated to do that, either,” Germany snorted - and at that Sweden turned around fully to stare at him. Germany gave a questioning stare in return, even as he recoiled, just a little.

“Y’laughed,” Sweden pointed, still staring, and frowning just a bit.

This roused yet another chuckle from Germany, and also a blush. “Yes. I am capable of laughter.” Germany began laughing again; again Sweden stared, unsure of why, or what to do, or if maybe this was a prank...

“What’s so funny?” Sweden asked.

“Ah,” Germany replied, calming down, “it’s not...it isn’t really that funny.”

Well, now Sweden wanted to know. It was worth talking again. “I’d like t’hear.”

Germany made an odd little strangled sound and turned to look at Sweden, unsure. “Er, to be blunt - I was imagining you laughing. Or, trying to.” He stopped and swept his eyes up and down Sweden’s face, trying to discern if he was wearing his normal expression or an angry one. It was impossible to tell.

They stayed like that, paused - Germany, wound up tight and ready to spring at any moment, and Sweden, stock-still and piercing stare - then Sweden bared his teeth in what was probably supposed to be a smile and turned to bite into his doughnut.

Content that, at least for now, he wasn’t going to get a Viking beatdown, Germany let out a breath and relaxed (as much as he ever did, at least). He heard Sweden swallow the rest of the doughnut and a barely-audible “I laugh.”


Sweden looked at his lap, licking doughnut remnants from his lips, and quietly repeated himself.

“I didn’t mean - “ Germany stopped when he saw that Sweden had opened his mouth again.

“Us’ally when ‘m really drunk,” he elaborated, and for a split-second Germany swore he saw the corners of Sweden’s mouth twitch up.

It made Germany smile, the tiniest bit, himself. He’d really like to see that. “Perhaps,” he began, “one night after the meetings are out....”

Sweden looked at him, eyebrows quirked down. Germany knew Sweden well enough by this point to interpret it as an inquiry and not a threat.

“...we could, ah, find a good bar?” he finished.

Sweden leaned back against the bench and looked off, silent.

Germany waited.

“Yeah. Sounds fun.”

Germany merely smiled - a wide, real one - in reply.




So this brings my total of Anon Meme drabbles up to, what, eight now? I guess I should post the rest. Le sigh.

Aw, thank you! Haha I can't imagine them any other way at this point, but...if they were drinking and/or got to know each other a little better... Sweden definitely has a playful side. It'd be cute to see him get Germany all flustered omg why are they so cute.

They totally would. Also, I kindasorta ship Finland and Italy ahaha.

Pffft I know! The drabble came from a thread where people were bawwing about pairings that seemed to be popular but had little fic or art - so apparently more people agree with us!

Sweden laughing would make me squee so hard.

Ha that's actually the reason this thing got written! There was a thread on the meme about pairings that people seemed to love but that had little fic/art.

As far as sequels go, I think I'll have to. The Peoples have spoken.

You're welcome. You deserve it.

Also, I've gone to look at your stuff and found that wow. I've already read/loved several of your fics. xD (I tend to read everything and anything with Ned in it) So no worries. The porn is not an issue at all. <3

ja;oirhgsa ack awesome!

Oh, yeah, I'd actually really like some crit on my Ned if you have any. I love him but of my Main Six that I write he's the one I'm most unsure about.

Or well if you have any crit on anything I'd love to hear it. I really really like fic crit and people are so reluctant to give it ;_;

Now art is where I get all spazzy and oversensitive about crit but fic - BRING IT ON MUTHAFUCKAS.

Oh, no problem! Although to be honest there isn't a whole lot to say about your Ned since, really, yours is one of the best I've read.

The only problems I have is in your one with Russia and Ned.

First off, Russia wouldn't be taller than Netherlands. The Dutch are on average the tallest race on earth. Ned would be taller than everyone else. Just a little detail.

Second, I'm not sure his problem with Russia would be bluntness. The Dutch are a very blunt people themselves. Your Ned is plenty blunt enough, which is a plus. But I just don't see him looking down on it in other people when really, that would be normal to him in his culture. I definitely think he would expect Russia to get in trouble with the other nations, but perhaps less for bluntness and more... like child-like honesty? Naivety?

But no, otherwise, you're spot on. Ned is blunt, straight to the point, controlling in sexual situations, and uncaring about what other people think of him. I love your Ned. Just make him taller and used to bluntness and you're good to go.

*flails* oh man thanks!

Ah, actually on the height thing, you're gonna have to do battle with Hidekaz I guess O.o Russia and Sweden are the tallest, and the same height; supposedly Netherlands is near Denmark's height. So still tall, for sure, but not the tallest. I actually looked it up when I was writing that ahaha I'm such a derp why do I look up the most mundane shit. But geez I wish he was as tall as Russia aa;girha;fd I love super-tall men. Hnng.

Mmm, hmmm, okay *takes notes* I'll have to go back and fix it someday. After this France/Denmark thing. And this Nordic Secret Santa thing. And the sequel to this thing. And...damn it. *headdesk*

Dude thanks! *rolls around in crit*

Also I am in love with this icon Lordy this icon.

Uuuuuuuugh the official heights. I actually kind of hate the official heights and try to ignore them. Because while Russian's are tall, they aren't as tall as Northern Europeans (so Sweden, Denmark, and Ned should all be taller than him). Do you mind if I ask where you got Ned's height, because I don't think I've ever seen it. He hasn't been in any comics at his adult height with anyone except Japan and Osaka that I know of, and I don't remember it being in any of his personal stuff I saw translated... Haha, sorry, I'm just curious now. xD I won't change my stance and will probably stick with average heights and not Hidekaz's simply because I don't care for his. and being tall is a part of the Dutch identity andflafshdafnkjalf I can't let it go But I'm curious~

And haha, no worries! It's not a big deal, and believe me, I know about having tons of stuff to write. So don't worry about that. It's such a little thing. Just keep it in mind for later.

Glad you appreciated the crit! If I ever feel the need, I'll let you know if I think you need anymore. 8D

From: [identity profile] tinediserp.livejournal.com
I feel like the official heights are based off of a weird combo of how tall people from the country are, how much historical importance the nation has/had, and how scary the character's personality is supposed to be. (Like Russia and Sweden are the tallest = they're usually perceived as the two "scary" ones + people from there are tall anyways + they were both EMPIRES)

Urgh Ned's height - I know it's on the Wiki but I saw it somewhere else. I'll have to find it when I have some more downtime (gaaah Thanksgiving I have been surrounded by people for two days straight it's getting to me). Is he at his adult height in that Spain-Belgium-chibimano one? I guess it wouldn't matter either way because he's not standing near anyone to compare him to...

YESH CRIT feel free to hit me with it 8)b

Date: 2010-11-28 01:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yaoi-rox-me-sox.livejournal.com
Yeah, which I mean... I get. But it still just irks me. xD Just a little pet peeeeve.

Um I think in the Spain-Belgium-chibimano one he's still younger. Like... in his late teens I would think. There's no height comparisons, but he appears younger. But once Netherlands was free, it was one of the richest/culturally diverse/etc. and son on nation in Europe. And he was an empire as well (New Netherlands in America, some southern African lands, and the Dutch Indies of course). So it depends on when exactly he met Russia. But I would think that he would be at adult height at that point? And that Russia would still be a touch younger than him.

But that's all just theoretical on my part (history bits aside). Soooo yeah.

...sequel will definitely happen, but first I need to finish this France/Denmark porny thing on the meme and get a bit more done for my Nordic Secret Santa (omg so pumped on that).

So just as a poll: how would you like your Germany/Sweden/Germany? I don't know if fans of this are as...ah...kinky as I am. /eyes.gif

Netherlands icon for the hell of it.

Take your time, I can wait, and read your other works in the process. >D

As part of the poll, I like Sweden/Germany, though Germany/Sweden is no problem. And I have read other fics of yours, so I believe the phrase is I don't know if fans are as kinky as we are. Haha.

Regardless if you decide to throw in kink or not, this is Germany and ex viking!Sweden we're talking about here, my crack!headcannon says they just naturally like it rough.

And thus my brain spirals downward to the usual thought when it comes to SwedenxGermany: they go out to eat, eat in silence, go to a hotel, have many, sweaty, GRUNTING sex, then shower, get dressed, give each other a handshake and a nod, then head their separate ways.

Now I have something to lead up to it. xD;

...manly sex is inherent in the pairing, but! Taking a poll here: what kinks are "omfg no get that away" for you? My headcanon is that Germany is kind of a masochist but I dunno if that's how The Peoples want it. I can totally do manry!vanilla. Or frottage. Or blowjobs. Dude I am thinking about this way too hard imma shut up now.

Aww thank you! Hm, I dunno, writing drunk nations is a lot of fun...it'll probably be them drinking. My headcanon says Sweden is actually a pretty fun drunk once he's past the point of "buzzed" and solidly into the land of "drunk".

And then there will be something porny I am sure. Because it's me we're talking about WHOOPS.

That... that was really cute. :D One would think these two would have trouble getting together because of their mutual awkwardness, but they are more than a bit alike.

(And, its nice to see someone other than Finland getting tripped up by The Swedish Glare, and props to Germany for being more graceful about it.)

Loved it, in short. <3 You should write more of them!

The Swedish Glare!!! That is my new name for it in my head yessir. Comments on specific little things like that make me smile so hard oh gosh.

So in the inevitable event that I am predictable something porntastic between these two is written: how would you like your Sweden/Germany/Sweden?

Thank you for commenting!
