Difficult Love


Sweden may have a...tense relationship with Finland, and be in a relationship that is not entirely consensual on his part with Sister Finland, but there is one from the Suomi family that he likes: Finland’s cousin, Åland.

There was a time when the whole Finland family lived with Sweden, but when he lost the war to Denmark and Russia, he had to give up Finland to Russia and Åland moved with him.
When Finland became his own country, he made Åland move in with him, despite Åland’s protests. He always liked Sweden better to a point where he talked Swedish. He wanted to move back in with Sweden, and Sweden wanted him back, but Finland said no.
Åland tried a few times to go back to Sweden, but Finland kept getting between them, but ended up at least letting Åland have his own house (autonomous region). To show whom his heart really belonged to, Åland chose a flag that resembled Sweden’s more than Finland’s.

Such is the love story of Sweden and Åland. :D

Heh, people kept asking me to do something with Åland, and most suggested that he would be an adopted child of Sweden and Finland, but as you can see, that wasn't what sprung to mind when I read about the islands. ;)

So I tried to make Åland look like he was related to Finland, but had a personlity closer to Sweden.

Sweden really does have a tense relationship with almost everyone, but that's because he didn't exactly treat the other countries well. Denmark is the exception because they are equally bad.

Sweden is calm and collective (most of the time), but deep down he must enjoy this drama a tad- bit. =)

I like the history lesson afforded by SatW. ;) Reading about the Winter War of 1939-40. Molotov cocktails against tanks? To put it in modern parlance, the Finns gave no fucks. :O

I like your comics, I really do but you need to find better sources for your jokes. Sweden losing Finland had NOTHING AT ALL to do with any war with Denmark, it was only due to our war with Russia (which was at the same time as we had a war with Denmark and we did prioritize keeping Scania and the rest of southern Sweden more than what we prioritized to fight Russia.
