Just a short sherlock ficLoud, rhythmic music was vibrating the room, and two men, one tall with brown, untameable hair, and one short with a blonde army haircut stood in a corner. The taller of the two looked cosiderably drunk, and the shorter man appeared to be wrestling a half filled pint of beer away form him. He then shouted, "Sherlock…..Sherlock no! You've already had enough to drink! Eh…hrm…give…me..That." He managed to wrestle the glass away and put it on a ledge, the taller man, identified as Sherlock, now looking slightly agitated, "But John!" He shouted, his voice beginning to slur, "I need that drink! It's mere existence is pumping life into my poor soul." John was not pleased, "It's not breathing life into you, it's making you drunk. Sooner or later, you'll end up injured because of your drinking habits, and I won't be there to help you…" He trailed off, noticing that Sherlock had stopped paying attention to him, but rather to the music. He began to laugh.
Sherlock was becoming absorbed by a song

Feli paced the bedroom, wondering how to get Ludwig to talk to him again. What if he got rid of Otto? Besides murder, Feli wasn't sure how he'd get the older German to leave him alone. As innocent as the Italian was, he still understood that murder accured & what it was. Of course, that didn't mean he actually saw it as an option, Otto was still his first love, the Holy Roman Empire.
"Ve~! What if I got Ludwig a puppy?" Feli asked aloud before frowning & shaking his head. Ludwig had said that he'd picked Otto, but over what? Over who? Feliciano sighed in thought.
"Gil?" Ludwig looked over with confusion.
"Ja, West?" Gil asked.
"Isn't Liz coming over?"
"Then why aren't you wearing clothes?"
"Cause Liz is coming over. Kesesese!" Gil laughed.
"Mein G-tt, I did not need those images in my head." Ludwig groaned, only causing more laughter to erupt from his elder brother.
"So, enough about my Awesome evening, what's mein kleiner Bruder doing tonight?" Gil asked.
"Going on a date." Ger

Ludwig pulled into his driveway, watching the man that stood on his porch. Ludwig exited his car & paused, catching a good look of the other. It was like looking in a mirror before he slicked his hair back. He steeled his gaze & walked over.
"Excuse me, can I help you?" Germany called. The man turned, causing Ludwig to realize that he was slightly taller.
"Who are you?" The other man asked, voice as similar as his appearance, just slightly older.
"I should be asking you that, you're the one in front of my house." Ludwig said.
"I'm Otto, Otto Beilschmidt. I thought this house belonged to a childhood friend of mine, I appologize." Otto stated.
"So, am I right to assume you're Italy's first love?" Ludwig's eyes narrowed slightly.
"Huh? You know meine Italien?" Otto asked, eyes sparking.
"Your Italy? Nein, but I do know Italy." Ludwig replied.
"Oh, so you must be Germany!" Otto smiled, happy to meet his love's friend.
"Ja, and you are the Holy Roman Empire." Ludwig monotoned.

"V-ve, th-that's impossible!" Italy stammered, hugging himself, fighting tears.
"How is it impossible?" Holy Rome asked in confusion.
"V-ve, b-big br-brother Fr-france... He s-said th-that he... Th-that h-he ki-killed y-" Feli cut himself off & took a deep breathe before continuing, voice stronger, "the person you claim to be."
"France says a lot of things, & a lot of the things he says are lies." Otto said, jaw clenched in anger. An anger that Ludwig could understand.
"V-ve, I... I d-don't be-believe you are wh-who y-you claim to b-be." Feliciano replied.
"Then I shall prove it, mein liebe." Otto said. Ludwig's brow twitched at the pet name. "We lived together when we were young; I'd chase you, you'd run; I'd run, only for you to chase me. When I asked you why, you said you didn't know(check fact); when I asked you to join me & become the new Roman Empire, you said no; when I asked why, you cried & said it was because you didn't want me to become like your grandpa & that you liked me

"Oi, Austria!" Holy Rome strode up to the musician.
"Oh, Holy Rome, how are you?" Austria replied.
"Fine. So, would you care to explain to me as to why the girl I've been dreaming about for my entire life only to find out that she is a he?" Otto asked, his tone close to a snarl.
"I didn't know until he hit puberty. Besides, does it truly matter? Aren't you just happy to be with your Italy?" Roderich rebuttled.
"He's different." Otto said with a frustrated sigh.
"As are you. It's called growing up." Austria stated.
"Why is he so concerned with this Germany guy?"
"Perhaps because Germany promised to be his friend & has kept his promise even through Italy betraying him." Austria replied before continuing thoughtfully. "Though, the betrayal was better for everyone because it stopped the War, a war in which Germany wanted nothing to do with from the beginning."
"Ita betrayed him & yet he's still hanging out with him? Man, I didn't think any descendant of Vatti could be so desperate." Otto s

Feliciano Venieziano Vargas was an extremely excitable person & not in the good way. He got anxious & nervous & always surrendered at the wrong times, save the Pict Incident. So, now with the rather blunt Otto around, he was uncomfortable & anxious. Not that he voiced his opinion, everytime he tried to talk to Ludwig or Gilbert, they'd either be locked in or gone. Feliciano was also increasingly having nightmares & couldn't go to Ludwig in the middle of the night because the door & windows were locked. The Italian felt like crying but was never able to, Otto his constant shadow.
One day, Otto excused himself in that he had errands to run. Ludwig had gone out to train. Gilbert had gone over to Liz's. Feliciano slumped in exhausted relief when Otto had shut the door after him. He leaned against the wall for awhile before gathering strength.
Feli stood & dashed out the door. A few hours later, Feliciano found himself in front of Antonio's house. He knocked continuously on the door, lookin

Otto watched as Italy flitted about the kitchen, making sweets. The other man seemed to be running on nervous energy but he didn't seem scared, just... sad. Otto bit the inside of his cheek. This was not how Holy Rome had imagined his reunion with his beloved.
Otto remembered fantasizing about the day he dame back to his sweet Ita-chan. Planned every moment of their relationship, starting with courting her and ending at the wedding ceremony. He could just see Ita-chan gliding down the aisle and Romano- reluctantly- giving her away. He recalled how the lace-veil would have felt as he moved it from her cutely blushing face; heard how Miss Hungary would have sniffled in joy; and seen how his little bruder would have been in awe at his Amazing bruder and bride.
Otto also remembered when these dreams had bee shattered. Otto'd gone and asked France how Ita-chan was doing. When France had revealed Italy's true gender, Otto had thought it an elaborate prank. He was wrong and France had insiste

"Ve? Ludwig, are you going to train?" The Italian murmured into the back of his friend.
"Ja, but you don't have to come with. In fact, I'd prefer you stayed here." Ludwig pulled out of the hug, not looking at Feliciano.
"Ve~? Did I do something wrong?" Feli asked, feeling tears start to swell.
"Nein, you did nothing wrong, I just think you need a break is all." Germany said, starting to back towards the door.
"O-okay." Italy wiped at his tears.
Ludwig sighed & kissed his ally's cheek. He wiped a tear away with his thumb, "I promise you did nothing wrong."
"Ve~!" Feliciano perked up at getting a kiss, his normal smile beaming at the German. "Don't overwork yourself, okay?"
"Alright." Ludwig nodded, giving the Italian a small smile & vanished through the door.
Hours later, Germany jogged up to his porch. He entered the house quietly, as usual. He froze when he saw Otto & Feli at the table. Feliciano was holding out a spoon of icecream to Otto. Italy's home-made, soft-serve cookies-

Feliciano fiddled with his fingers as he walked back to his & Ludwig's home. He paused & ran the thought again "his & Ludwig's", no Gil's or Otto's, just him & Ludwig. He felt his heart become a humming bird & his tummy begin to feel warm. His brain clicked. He wanted it to be just Ludwig & himself there, no Otto & Gil could move in with Liz. Feli skipped the rest of the way home, intent on telling this to his German friend.
"Ve~! Ludwig I'm ho-" Feliciano stopped in the doorway upon seeing Otto there, arguing with Ludwig.
"You have no right!" Ludwig snarled.
"I'm the oldest & this is Vatti's land, making it my inheiritance & my house." Otto said.
"Germania's land went from almost Russia into Italy & France! You do not own those lands or people anymore than you own this house! My house!" Ludwig snapped.
"You are the youngest & least experienced, this house does not belong to you!" Otto growled.

"Until we meet again, my Italy!" Holy Rome called out to little Chibitalia. As young Italy watched his first love start marching off, he truly hoped that it would be true.
Months passed and Chibitalia heard no word from Holy Rome. Then, one day, Hungary pulled her Ita-chan to the side. Austria was discussing business with an oddly silver-haired young man.
"Ita-chan, I... I have some news... news of Holy Rome..." Miss Hungary began, trying to swallow her tears.
"Really?! Is he returning soon?! How is he?! Is the war over?!" Chibitalia asked, eyes shining with hope. That's when Miss Hungary's tears started to fall.
"I-ita-chan... Holy R-rome... is dead..." She whispered. Chibitalia's eyes grew as wide as saucers as the news slowly sank in. Horror caught Italy by the hair.
"NOOOOOO!!!!!" Feliciano cried, bolting upright in the bed, tears flowing freely down his cheeks. Beside him, Ludwig burst from sleep into action, surveyin

"West, you vant to go and get some beers?" Gil asked.
"Nein, danke." Ludwig flipped the page.
"Oh c'mon, bruder, stop looking through that photo album. Feli'll come back, just give it time." Gil said, "Or let's go beat up Otto."
"Nein. It was Feliciano's choice and I'm going to respect that." Ludwig snapped shut the book.
"Okay, okay, gosh. I just think its stupid that you're moping about." Gil huffed.
"Oh, ja, you've never moped about because the one you love is vith another, bruder." Ludwig glowered.
"I give up. You're right. Feli'll never come back and you'll live lonely until you die." Gil rolled his eyes and stormed off. Ludwig rubbed his temples, sighing.
"Doitsu-san." Kiku hung by the doorway.
"You can call me 'Ludwig' if you vish, Kiku." the German didn't look over.
"Hai, but Gilbert-kun has a point." Japan stated.
"Ja, I know." Ludwig looked over; eyes tired, sad and lonely.
"Perhaps we could visit Italy-kun?" Kiku suggested, to which Ludwig nodded.

The next few months between the two friends were filled with a lot more kisses & hugs. Whenever Ludwig returned Feli's gestures with those of his own, the Italian would beam, causing the tall German to blush more than he already was. Anyone watching them could see them slowly shifting from friendly to romantic. Japan was estatic, though he never showed it(Hungary on the other hand was squealing with delight when Prussia told her). Of course, being the ninja Kiku was, he got several pictures of his friends.
Including the accidental kiss on the lips.
Ludwig had been leaning down to kiss Feli on the cheek when Gil passed, jostling the little Italian(Gil claims innocence). Balance lost, Feliciano did as most people would whilst trying to stay on his feet, he grabbed the thing nearest him. Ludwig's shoulder was jerked down & their lips collided, causing a wide-eyed, startled kiss.
Their eyes closed simotaniously, lips moving together in perfect- if a bit nervously- harmony. Feli's

Ludwig was walking around his living room in circles, hands either behind his back or pushing back his hair. Gil & the dogs watched him from the couch in an odd silence. It was a strange thing to watch the German pace, but more so the way he was now. Germany's hair was messy & unkept, there were bags under his eyes from days of insomnia & he was wearing pj bottoms & an old rock t-shirt that no one would fathom that he could own. The problem that caused his lack of sleep could only be described as one word: Italy.
"West, vhy don't you just apologize to him? I'm sure he'll come right back before you can even say 'I'm sorry'." Gil asked.
"Und vhat do you suppose I do about Otto?" Ludwig practically snarled his elder's name, "Do you really think he'd let Feli come back vithout a fight?"
"Maybe you shouldn't have kicked Feli out in the first place, Bruder." Prussia suggested.

"Ve? Y-you think Luddy's the means I still l-live?" Feliciano rubbed at his tears and Ooto felt a rueful smile grace his lips.
"I think someone knew you'd meet und that he vould protect you vith his all." Holy Rome patted Italy's shoulder.
Tears waterfalled once more and Feli hugged Otto all of a sudden, "I'm sorry."
"Vhat for?" Otto asked, hugging back loosely.
"V-ve, for f-falling for someone else." Feliciano sniffled.
"It's fine. I shouldn't have done all I have." Otto murmured, "I'm sorry. I vant you to be happy."
"Ve~! I want you to e happy too, Holy Rome!" Feli pulled back.
"I'll manage, but your place is at Ludwig's side. You owe me nothing but to do that. To stay vith your love." Otto said, heart breaking.
"Ve~? Really?" The Italian blinked.
"Ja, really." Holy Rome smiled a litte.

Feli tried to concentrate on creating sweets for Holy Rome but he just couldn't. He missed Ludwig. He missed the younger's stern expressions. He missed the other's soft but sharp sea gaze. He missed the lectures and, more recently, the hugs and kisses.
He blinked away his tears. He had chosen to do this, not Ludwig and not Holy Rome. Feliciano was a man of his word and nothing- except maybe death- could change that fact.
Feli shuddered as though someone had walked upon his grave. Another thought hit him. What if all the affection Ludwig had given him was false? What if now Ludwig realized he couldn't love such an old man and refused to accept him back into Ludwig's home? What if Feli's recent cold meant he was close to his deathbed?
He sobbed loudly, crumbling to the floor and hugging himself tightly. 'I don't want to die!' Feli cried inwardly.
"Mein G-tt! Feliciano?! Are you okay?!" Holy Rome crouched by his side worriedly. Feli's tear-filled chocolates met Holy Rome's sharp sapphires

"You had something you wanted to talk about?" Germany asked from where he was seated.
"Yes. When Italy was young he worked here as a maid. At that time there was another young nation in my care. The Holy Roman Empire." Austria began. "Holy Rome & Italy had a, um-"
"Cut the crap Roderich." Prussia said before turning to his younger brother. "Holy Rome & Feli were in love with each other."
It took Germany a moment to process the information. It certaintly made sense with what little he knew about his friend's past. His jaw clenched & his chest tightened for some unknown reason.
"Alright." Ludwig managed.
"Now, at one point Holy Rome went off to war, which ended in him dissolving." Roderich said. "Since a body was never found we had three thoughts of what might have happened, particularly after Gilbert found you.
"The first was that he had died & scavengers ate his flesh & used his bones for nests. He was quite a small boy when he left &-"
"Get on with it." Ludwig said.
"The second was th
