[APH Nordics] Sleep my young love by Enbi-to-Miruku [APH Nordics] Sleep my young love by Enbi-to-Miruku
DISCLAIMER: I am well aware of the timeline inaccuracy of this artwork. This is set in 1814, while the famous Icelandic lullaby (of which I used the lyrics) was written in 1911. Please do not comment about this inaccuracy, because I've already known it.

---

"On January 7, 1814, [...] King Frederick VI of Denmark agreed to cede Norway to the king of Sweden in order to avoid an occupation of Jutland. These terms were formalized and signed at the Treaty of Kiel on January 14, in which Denmark negotiated to maintain sovereignty over the Norwegian possessions of Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland."

.::~*~::.

I'm so sorry, I drew angst.

At least it's historical.

Anyway, I feel somewhat guilty for being too obsessed with DenNor these days - I didn't even like it, originally (now I do, don't worry). I decided to go with some brotherly and emotional NorIce, to make up for my laziness over my doujinshi back in July 2013.

Now, lullabies have always fascinated me. Especially mysterious and creepy ones. I recommend you to listen to this song, Sofðu unga ástin mín (Sleep my young love), Sung by Sissel Kyrkjebø. You can read more about the lullaby here.

I've modified a lyrics a tiny bit to fit.

Headcanon: Norway used to sings lullabies in both Norwegian and Icelandic, and whenever young Iceland is particularly upset, Norway would sing only in Icelandic. Because he knew Iceland liked that (though he'd never admit, even til now). Nowadays Norway sometimes sings in Icelandic mostly to tease his little brother - Iceland is only half annoyed, actually.

REBLOG here if you will.

Axis Powers Hetalia and all its characters belong to Himaruya Hidekaz.
Sofðu unga ástin mín was written by Jóhann Sigurjónsson. The translation I used belong to Otakuso
The artwork belongs to me.

From what I gathered in the historical part of the description,Denmark is giving control of Norway to Sweden-but Denmark keeps control of Iceland.

You know, maybe Iceland Doesn't want to call Norway big brother is because Iceland remembers Norway leaving him so he still kind of hates him for it

thanks you too for fav, I am glad you like it^^. Your drawing was really nice, and when I listened the song, I just needed to do this MMD vidXD. Well I know its far from being perfect, I am stil newbie when it comes to making my own motion data or fyxing physics of models (floating hair of little Iceland).

 Ah sry for missing credit in video itself, sure  I added link to you:) Hope now all credits are ok and I didnt forget anything(i was uploading when I was half assleepXD)

BTW originally I wanted to use icelandic Songs name in preview, but dev didnt allow me to use some specific lettersXD

Well, the translation is written by Otakuso, I only modified the lyrics a tiny bit to fit with the brothers ^^

And I recommend listening to the lullaby, because it is hauntingly beautiful.

Me too :) It is the very cruelty of history that makes me want to read it. It's harsh because it's reality, and it teaches me a lot.
