Summary: Today is the anniversary of Hungary’s divorce from Austria…

For Jen, whose fic inspired this…

Austria sat down at the piano, his hands poised over the keys as if to play. Today was the anniversary of his divorce from Hungary, and while they had remained friends, he still missed the privilege of calling her his wife. He ran his fingers lightly over the keys, playing a mournful tune, before stopping. He had promised himself that he would play something happy, having mourned that loss for far too long. Taking a deep breath, he played a light and airy piece by Mozart.

As his fingers danced over the keys, Austria felt better. No matter how upset he was, he found there was nothing like Mozart to improve his mood. He played piece after piece, becoming one with the music until his sadness was just a distant memory. His fingers finally came to a stop as the last chord faded away.

When Austria thought about it, theirs was a marriage of convenience, a political union that was not supposed to be anything more than that. Unfortunately, he fell in love with her, much to his surprise, feeling it keenly when the marriage ended. Hungary then came in and out of his life and as frustrating as it was, still, it was better than nothing. He figured that while he may have lost a wife, he had, through the years, gained a friend and Austria decided that that was not such a bad thing after all.

Austria sat at the piano, recalling the good times and the bad, the fingers of his right hand playing scales as he rested his head on his left fist. A faint smile tugged at his lips as he wondered how she was doing. He hoped she was alright as he made a metal note to call and invite her over for dinner…

Summary: Today is the anniversary of Hungary’s divorce from Austria…

For Jen, whose fic inspired this…

Prussia looked at the calendar with a wry smile. It was the anniversary of Austria’s divorce to Hungary, meaning she was a free woman for another year. While he felt bad for his friend, he was of the mind that “Austria’s loss was his gain.” Every year at this time, he promised himself that this year would be the one where she would finally be his.

The trouble was, that was where all of his fantasies ended. Hungary would be his, unless they took a left turn into Pervertedville. Oddly enough, that was at odds with his idealized image of her. Even though Prussia knew she could more than take care of herself, there was still a part of him that wanted to do that. He loved the little house-frau as much as he loved the kick-ass soldier. She was his ideal woman, except for the fact that she refused to see it.

Prussia sighed, maybe things would be better if he called his friends, France and Spain, and the three of them went out drinking. It was a much better way of celebrating than a frying-pan to the head now that he thought about it. With a bit of luck, he figured she would miss him enough to look for him and then he could see where things went from there. He snorted. And monkeys would fly from my awesome ass…

He picked up the phone and dialed. It rang a few times before a familiar voice answered it. “Hey! I was thinking, it’s your anniversary…” Prussia laughed. “You know what I mean, and I was wondering if you want to come to the Biergarten with me and toast Hungary until we’re falling down drunk… Yeah? Okay, see you then, Austria.” He hung up and got ready to go…

Summary: Today is the anniversary of Hungary’s divorce from Austria…

For Jen, whose fic inspired this…

Hungary picked up her frying pan and heaved a long suffering sigh. Today was not only the anniversary of her divorce from Austria, it also marked the day Prussia began to woo her. If he was not so awesomely annoying, she would have been flattered. Unfortunately, he was and she had spent more years than she had time to remember, fending off his affections. She smiled, thinking the end result was Prussia’s loss of brain cells and her gaining a mean backhand. Still, she had to admire his persistence.

One day, Hungary, I promise you’ll be mine!

No way in hell!!
she remembered shouting back at him, before a beautiful tradition began. He would annoy her and she would smack Prussia upside the head with her trusty skillet. What she found completely amazing was, it never fazed him. She could tell him “no” in any language imaginable and he would give her a cocky grin, before hurrying off to drown his sorrows at the local Biergarten, while nursing his wounds.

Hungary wondered if Prussia finally figured out that she would never be his. She had not seen him all day, which was strangely unnerving and she was of half a mind to go check up on him, despite the danger of him thinking she was finally interested in him. Picking up the phone, she dialed her ex, instead. After three rings, a familiar, yet annoying, voice answered. So that’s where Prussia is… she thought as she hung up without saying a word. Better they drown their sorrows together over what might have been, while discovering a deep and lasting friendship… She may not be Austria’s wife anymore, but that did not mean she did not love him, and besides, he could use a friend, even if it was Prussia…

Aw, what a sweet look at all three of them. Love how Prussia thought about calling France and Spain, but ended up dialing Austria instead :)

*blushes* Thanks! Yeah... I like to think Austria's a friend too, maybe not as close as France & Spain, but still a friend. ;p
