Wip fic? Lemme see my friend this sounds good

Just Finnish history from 1808 until… some still undetermined point in time, with flashbacks and world history thrown in \(*W*)/ But I’m a really slow writer, so I’m not ready to actually start posting it :3 

But I’ll give you one of my so-far favourite scenes because yay :D It still needs editing but oh well.

The blond man swirled the wine in his goblet, lounging on the hard chair as if it was the most comfortable divan imported from the Near East. His blond hair was pulled back into a ponytail and his face was adorned by a calculatingly bored expression. Russia himself was hiding his annoyance and frustration behind a fixed smile as his own hand clutched at a wine goblet, nearly crushing it in his grip.

"Your dear Alexander seems to be getting along with my Emperor," the other Nation observed smugly, taking a sip from his wine.

Russia’s smile widened, his violet eyes flashing dangerously. “It certainly seems so, Фра́нция.” 

France smiled. “We should get along as well, as the two strongest Empires in Europe,” the gaze of his blue eyes was careful as he watched Russia.

Good,’ the Slav thought, ‘He has at least enough sense to not dismiss me.’

"Certainly," he agreed, "What do you suggest?"

The Frenchman reached to the side, bringing up a rolled map, which he spread on the table, revealing the crisscrossing black lines crawling across its surface, forming the map of Europe. Russia raised an eyebrow but didn’t say anything. He wanted to see what game France was playing.

The blond’s elegant finger trailed the lines on the map, as if caressing the shores of the British Isles. “You are well aware of the Continental Blockage I’ve been working on for dear L’Angleterre,” he stated, not even waiting for Russia’s acknowledgement. “After the treaty has been signed and you have joined the Blockade, his only ally will be…” the finger lingered on western coast of European continent before tapping meaningfully at the northernmost part of Europe, “Sweden.”

Russia’s heart skipped a beat as he stared at the map. “You want me to force him to join it, да?” he stated more than asked.

"Exactement," France purred.

"That means I have to attack Finland," Russia mused softly, staring at the map. "There’s not much there… Rather insignificant all things considered," he should know. He had fought both Finland and Sweden so many times – and often on Finland’s land too – that he knew it as well as they. And while the land itself was beautiful, it didn’t have that much value or use to him. Besides, he didn’t want a repeat of the Great Northern War.

"True," France agreed, "But more important than Finland is…" his finger moved a bit to the east from Sweden’s coast, coming to rest on a cluster of islands in the Baltic Sea, between Sweden and Finland, "Åland. Imagine, those islands are just like a loaded pistol, pointing right at Stockholm, at Sweden’s heart…”

He knew all of this already. Peter had made similar plans a century earlier but later dismissed them. Threatening Sweden and forcing him to do his bidding would be so easy if one had a foothold on that Archipelago. They were also in a perfect position to control the whole of the Baltic; Gulf of Bothnia, support to the closure of the Gulf of Finland… But to control them, one had to control Finland first.

Russia smiled, “It seems I’ll have things to do when I return to St. Petersburg.”

France chuckled and saluted the eastern Nation with his goblet. “À votre santé, Russie.”

"Fucking pretenders the both of you," came a disgusted snarl as an empty goblet was slammed on the table and chair legs screeched against the floor.

Russia looked to the side, meeting Prussia’s enraged red eyes as the third Nation in the raft entered the discussion, standing tall and breathing heavily. His cheeks were sunken and his skin appeared even more pallid than normally and his dark blue military coat could have used a wash and several patches to fix the more worn parts.

France scoffed. “Do mind your manners, Prusse. I’ll get to you the day after tomorrow, oui?”

Prussia’s face twisted into an ugly snarl but he held his tongue, which surprised Russia. But maybe he should have expected it, he had read France’s demands and they were certainly no smiling matter. Maybe Prussia had finally realised that he really was in no position to argue, for it just might make the situation even worse. Although what could be worse than losing half of your landmass?

The pale Nation dropped heavily back to his chair, still scowling.

France smiled, refilling Prussia’s goblet. “Bon, trés bon, mon ami…”

Prussia’s hand swept across the table, hitting the goblet and bottle in France hands, spilling the red wine all over the victorious Nation.

To Russia, he seemed to be covered in blood.

"Ich bin nicht dein Freund," he snarled, his eyes promising revenge.

Random historical tidbit of the day: the only known recording of Hitler speaking in his indoor-voice was recorded in June 4th 1942, when he attended Marshal Mannerheim's 75th birthday in Finland. On the recording he talks about the background of Operation Barbarossa.

No additional notes needed on this guy because he should be fairly recognizable. Drawing BGM is two different compositions of Ode to Joy! Peace | War One of my favourite themes in CIV V!
This kind of shading makes Gilbird on the head thing looks extremely wacky, but why not.

I am completely respectful of everyone’s beliefs even if they don’t agree with mine, but here are some ways of approaching the after-life from an academic perspective. 

THE MIND-BODY CONNECTION

So before we delve into if the mind survives death, we first need to establish that the mind is a powerful entity. It’s not just a product of the brain but instead something that it’s own thing, and can even influence the brain itself.

Take the classical placebo effect for example. That’s one way to prove it. Other ways include the existence of psychic powers, hypnosis, and mind over matter interactions. 

Here are a bunch of experiments that scientifically approach the mind-body connection. Also have a couple of case studies here. 

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES (NDE)

An NDE is when someone is clinically dead for a long period of time. Thanks to recent medical innovations however, they can be brought back to life. In that “clinically dead” stage, their brain completely shuts down.

They should hence report back no perception. However, a large number of people do report seeing things such as a bright white light, a life review, deceased family members, and another world.



The AWARE study is a current on-going research project that decided to study this phenomenon. They will also be testing the validity of NDE through the use of randomly generated hidden images.

These images are not visible unless viewed from specific vantage points above. A patient will be put under cardiac arrest. Once the patient is resuscitated, they will be asked if they had an NDE and if so can they describe the image? 

You can visit their official website here: X

Also in case you doubt the amazing phenomena of an NDE, read about the case of Pam Reynolds: X

REINCARNATION EXPERIMENTS

While this is a topic that may not agree with many people religions, there has been fascinating case studies of reincarnation. Most reincarnation cases have been involved in Indian, China yes, where reincarnation is a huge religious ideal.

HOWEVER, there have been plenty of reincarnation cases in the USA and Europe. You may be wondering what a reincarnation case even is. It’s when a small child, usually around the age of 2-5, starts to recall past life events.

They say things like “I want to back to my real mom, you’re not my real mom”. They start to behave like how their “past life” person behaved, so if the past life was a shoemaker, they’d start to play around with shoes a lot. And sometimes they even give out factual evidence, like “I used to be a carpenter that lived on the yellow house in 1098 St.” Researchers go to the exact spot and find that yes, not to long ago someone did died there who was a carpenter.

READ MORE INTERESTING CASES OF REINCARNATION HERE: X

If you are really, really interested I recommend the book Life Before Life by Raymond Moody. The book can be read from google books: X

There have even been experiments, where an old, dying person was given a mark on his/her body and told to reincarnate themselves. A couple months later, a baby was born with the same exact mark on the same exact part of the body. You can read more about those cases in Life Before Life.

APPARITIONS 

There have been millions and millions cases of ghostly sightings, dating as far back as prehistoric eras. 

If someone is going to ask for repeatable scientific evidence of “ghosts” and “proof of a soul after death” well the answer is no one can really give you that. Atleast not yet. 

A ghost is a fleeting concept. You can’t predict it. It comes and it goes. 

But you know what that sounds like?

A meteor or a comet. 

Imagine being a person 100,000 years back, seeing a flaming rock in the sky. You go and tell all your friends, and they probably will tell you “you’re crazy” or that you “imagined it”. 

But it’s there. It exists. You just can’t go and show them. 

The different thing about meteorites and comets, is that our technology improved and we can track them in outer space now. They’ve become a scientific fact. They exist. With ghosts, and the non-material world, we have yet to do that.

Well anyway, that’s my academic and almost philosophical (the last part) take on the after-life. As you can see the points shown here do favor the existence of an after-life.

Edit: added a bunch of stuff esp in the mind/body connection

This is literally one of my favorite topics to read about, this is what keeps me up at night.

THANK YOU. I WORKED SUPER HARD ON THIS POST :’)

This is too amazing.
