We'll Make It Out, Together Ch.11949, Soviet Russia
The wooden doors to the basement creaked open. A silhouette of a man trailed down the stairs. He grumbled about how "demeaning" and "embarrassing" this was.
He reached the ground with a loud huff. Finally taking in his surroundings, what he saw in front of him was an absolute amazement. A woman with long brown hair sat on the floor. The last time he had seen her, she had looked perfectly healthy. Now she looked frail and malnourished. She picked away at various items and put them back in their proper spots.
The man's red eyes filled with hope for the women to be who he suspected. "Lizzie?" His words were barely a whisper. Elizaveta – as she preferred to be called – looked up. Her greens met his reds with an equal amount of small hope.
"Gil." She breathed. For the first time in years she felt truly happy.
Gilbert gave a big grin. "Well aren't you a sight for sore eyes." He sat down beside her. He remembered where they were once more and lost his signature smil

You continued to run until you reached the front of the school, where you tripped and fell, cutting your knee and scraping your arms.

"Hey, you ok there dude?"
You saw a pair of feet come into view and you looked up to find that a boy was standing there, looking at you with a concerned expression. He had sandy blonde hair and deep sea blue eyes. He was wearing your school's uniform and on his nose sat very plain looking glasses with rectangle lenses. You had never seen him before. He bent down and held out his hand, indicating that he wanted to help you up. You stared at his hand for a moment before taking it and he helped you stand up properly

Above this sin
You hold my hand
Before the end comes
Forgiving me for what I've done till the end of days
The sky is dark again.
But that's nothing new; it's usually always dark on this side. There are those rare moments where the clouds part, where I can actually see the sun, but as soon as that spark of hope burns, it is snuffed. Far too quickly.
I live in fear.
I have never lived in fear before.
I'm sitting on the edge, waiting, always waiting. I'm trapped behind this thick curtain, a curtain of iron. A curtain of iron that smothers my sense of time, my grasp on reality, my ability to grasp my identity.
I'm used to being caged, shut down, degraded. No one gives a damn that it doesn't work for me. No one understands that I'm a free spirit; I'm meant to run, to yell, to shout, to scream, to fight. But since when has anyone actually cared?
And now, here I am. On the ground, on all fours, my breaths coming out in uneven intervals, my vision blurring, the bl

With the exception of Sopron, the Alpines found the whole affair utterly surreal as they tried to make sense of the realization that Hungary herself, who was supposed to be another casualty of Doomsday, was right in front of them, spending a tender moment with her daughter. Not that it bothered Austria in the slightest as he joined his old family, having longed for a moment like this ever since their marriage all those years ago. As the day wore on, however, the picnic went back to something resembling peace and calm, though with a haunting sense of nostalgia.
"So Deutschland is doing well, ja?" Switzerland's sister asked the former Nation, a mix of fear and excitement in her otherwise soft voice. "Up there I mean?"
The Magyar chuckled as she took a sip from the glass, which seemed to make her more radiant if only for a second. "Yes de

The hillside garden that formed part of Liechtenstein's house may have been overgrown at points, many shrubs, wildflowers and edelweiss sprouting where they shouldn't be. But overlooking the still picturesque Swiss Alps, it was tempting to act as though what happened in 1983 was nothing more than a dream. Nonetheless, for Austria and the Alpine siblings, it was quiet and secluded enough for a nice picnic. And a good opportunity to let Julia have some recreation, the Nation thought as he tried to share Switzerland some of his strudel. Even now, it seemed as though Vash always needed a gun around his person at all times, which coupled with his brash personality captured the average Swiss mindset almost perfectly.
Sighing, the aristocrat turned his attention towards Lilli, with the embodiment of Sopron just behind her as they made their way back from w

“Coming!” You hollered, running from the kitchen to answer the door. You were greeted by Alfred, Arthur, and Matthew; Arthur and Matthew were dressed in simple T-shirts and jeans, their blond hair sticking up like always, but Alf had gone all out in a head-to-toe Superman costume (like he did every year) and a black wig.

Somewhere near the Sopron Frontier. 2009.
The cold November winds coursed through the empty cottage as Austria let his hands recreate Mozart's brilliance from the myriad piano keys. He no longer wondered when he first started this peculiar ritual, out here at the very fringes of not only the Alpine Confederation but also of civilized life in Mitteleuropa. He knew that the proud men patrolling the still irradiated borders who heard it at the very least considered it a relief from the dreary reality of their watch. And yet deep down, he knew that he was playing for an old love he hoped against hope was still out there in the wastes. Not since Doomsday, he thought bitterly as the notes grew more disjointed. That he was in what had once been Hungary's doorstep made it all the more difficult.
He could still vividly remember that day in 1983 when the world nearly ended. When at long last, Americ

The afterlife had been called different names over countless generations. Elysium. Nirvana. Heaven. Paradise. The Great Beyond. Either way, it was far beyond anything she could have possibly imagined. At one moment, she was naked before a vast plain, as wild horses and their riders galloped into horizon. In another, she witnessed the Budapest of her people's dreams break out in endless celebration. At once, she found herself in an immaculately elegant gala, surrounded by the great kings, revolutionaries, heroes and so many others she had called her own. Even her distant ancestors beckoned on with open arms. By any conceivable definition, it was bliss.
Or rather, it should have been. Even in eternity Hungary remained restless. So much was left undone and unsaid. All while the thought of losing her children and Austria to a slow fate even worse than the once-Nation's own deat

Elizaveta found it ironic how she knew the exact place and moment of her death to heart, but not the actual date. For all she cared it might have been 1985 or early 1986. Not that it mattered anymore, as she watched from a distance an exhausted young man in uniform enter a military tent, a group of soldiers still in their bulky expedition gear waiting for him. Many of them were either Swiss or Austrian. But the rest, from how they spoke and looked, were undeniably of her people.
Or far more likely, her daughter's. The once-Nation had to remind herself that save for faded memories this wasn't her land anymore. In any case, she knew that the crate being brought before the young man was to be delivered to "Herr Edelstein" at long last, after years of failure. She was also all too aware of what was inside it. And how by some coincidence, it was found in a ruin so decayed that t

At first, her attempts at reappearing in the world were sporadic and frustrating. As the Magyar soon learned, it proved to be much more than just being a gust of wind or an invisible spectator. But it was a hurdle that grew easier with each successive manifestation. At one point, she appeared as a vague apparition in Mariazell if only for a split second, which the Vatican in distant Brazil would later try to wave off as a "lewd rumor." And all the while she felt a faint pulse coming from her scattered people. Nationalists. Refugees. Half-bloods. Those who still associated themselves with her, if only as a fading memory.
But as the once-Nation adopted, she was forced to grasp the realities on the ground. A new order had already begun as Survivor-Nations rose from the chaos. Elsewhere, remnants of the old world continued to rebuild while a submarine left behind by the America

Dreams were peculiar things. Here, Elizaveta knew, was a crack through the divide separating her from the family she left behind. It began with little Sopron. Though it frustrated her immensely to take on various guises at first, the precious time spent with Julia seemed to surpass whatever the afterlife provided. And with each successive visit, the once-Nation found it easier and managed to stay for just a little longer. The same could be said of more distant Partium, who, despite being more Transylvanian than anything else, was still very much her son.
Roderich was another story. If it wasn't the even stronger forces holding her back, the more rational corners of his consciousness were able to push her appearances away as nightmares or warped memories. From what she did see of her ex-husband's mind, maybe it was for the best, growing increasingly chaotic with each attempt. Austrian

"Auf Wiedersehen!" Julia shouted in accented German, waving as the Alpine siblings made their way out of her caretaker's house. "Please come back soon!" Ever since meeting them she found it strange how "Aunt Lilli" and "Uncle Vash," as the little girl came to call the pair, always seemed to wrap their arms around each other so tenderly. Just like a married couple, she mused giddily, only to hear her caretaker coughing again amidst the wind, vaguely hearing something about "improper relations."
"Shall we go inside, Sopron?" she heard Roderich Edelstein call out, wrapping his old greatcoat close. "I believe there's still some Sachertorte left in the kitchen. And it's not my intent to leave you cold out here!" His voice came across as somewhat monotone, though warm, which she found oddly funny ever since meeting him. Come to think of it, she also fou

Sweating under the bulky combat overalls that formed his radiation suit, Switzerland wearly made his way towards a large, nondescript tent nestled away from the main encampment. Yet even from here, his ears sensed the familiar sounds of gunfire echoing from the distance. While above him, the sky had taken on a dreary, almost monotone grey even if it was only 2:00 PM. What remained of the invading Soviet leaders had called for a cease-fire a while back, he recalled. Though it was clear the Austrians had no intention of leaving any enemy standing on their soil alive. Not after they glassed Vienna.
Then again, he couldn't blame them. It had only been weeks since the nuclear warheads first started flying. All communication with the outside world was gone as EMP fried most of their signals and electricity. One didn't have to be neutral or a military expert to figure out t

He never really understood me anyway ... but I was too proud to admit that I owed him a lot for taking me in after my Country was dissolved. Truth be told, I just wanted to get away for a few minutes because West's obsession with cleaning and strong dislike for mess was pissing me off. The whole thing that started the argument was that I'd left my dirty underwear on the bathroom floor. I told him I forgot to pick them up, but West insisted that I did it on purpose because I "forget" regularly. So I told him that I had so many of his nags to focus on and I could only work on one at a time. Then he did this big sigh that he always does when we argue and said "I don't nag you, Prussia". By the end of it, I just decided to take a walk. But I never expected to find something that would change my life on my small journey. Anyway, that's enough about the situation.

Finally, anticipation and nerves managed to lure us from the car and together, we stepped through the ancient wrought iron gates that lead into the shadowy park.
We walked along in silence, my heart stopping each time the snap of a tree branch or the rustle of leaves echoed through the darkness.
Biting my lip, I prompted myself to be brave. If Arthur could do this, so could I.
Besides, Slender man was just a legend.
A bush rustled abruptly off to my right causing me to jolt away from the alarming sound and right into the British gentleman. Catching me from behind (and preventing my fall), he helped lift me back to my feet and spun me around to face him.

Why was he pissed?
Because his best friend since childhood just told him about kicking the shit out of her sexist and verbally abusive boyfriend.
Now, he wasn't pissed about Eli kicking the shit out of him (honestly, if he'd been informed, he would've been cheering her on) but by the things she'd said he told her. Now, he knew Eli was a smart girl, and that, under any other circumstance, she would've left the douchebag the moment that he breathed a word of that "a woman's place is in the kitchen" bullshit, and stomped her high-heel into his balls.
But, she'd had a crush on this guy since high school and, sadly, crushes can make you do stupid things. Like date assholes. And do anything for said asshole. And completely forgive all of these asshole's faults.
Now, he gave Eli credit, she got out of there before things got bad. And, it w
