The Napoleon War

The Napoleon War

Never mess with a neat-freak!

This is the main reason why Norway and Denmark still feel a bit funny about Sweden even today. HISTORY TIME!

The Napoleon war was basically with France one on side and England on the other, with each of them having a number of countries supporting them. At the beginning most countries supported France, and Sweden was one of the few who supported England from the very beginning.
As the war went on, more and more countries left France and went over to England, with Denmark as one of the very few who stayed with France to the bitter end.

When England won, Denmark was of course seen as one of the big loosers who deserved to be punished for staying on the "evil" side, so it was seen as only fair that Sweden got Norway. The Danes were ready to just give in and get it over with, but the Dane who had been put in charge of Norway suggested that they allowed Norway to break loose from Denmark instead. That way Sweden couldn’t touch them.

Denmark agreed to do this, and Norway finally got it’s own constitution. But that didn’t stop Sweden. When they were told Denmark could no longer hand Norway over, Sweden simply invaded Norway and took it by force. That was the last war between the Scandinavian countries.

You gotta' love how Sweden went from being one of the "good guys" to being a jerk. History is fun like that. :XD:

You voted, so here they are. The Nordic countries in all their naked glory. Enjoy, you perverts!

There are no stereotypes saying that Finns look like this. I just thought it went well with the I-don't-give-a-fuck-what-you-think personality I’ve given them. :)

And yes, I actually imagine Sister Norway to be slightly taller than her brother, just because. :D

I didn’t realize it before the picture was done, but I love how you can see that a domino effect will take place in the boys' picture:

Iceland is just standing around being his usual pretty self. That...um, distracts Sweden. Therefore he doesn’t notice that Denmark is about to towel whip Norway. When that happens, Norway will jump, and bump into Finland. Finland will drop his beer, and then all hell will break loose! :XD:

The North Sea Lotto

The North Sea Lotto

The true story of how Denmark just freaking gave away one of the world’s biggest oil reserves in the North Sea to Norway without realizing it. We never quite got over that.

Oh well, Norway used to be one of the poorest countries in Europe, and this helped them kick start their economy, and today it’s one of the best places in the world to live. You’re welcome, Norway.

"Kroner" is of course the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish currency.

SatW Couples

SatW Couples

I asked you what your favourite couples from Scandinavia and the World were, and here they are. I said I was only going to draw the couple that most people wanted to see, but I suddenly felt like drawing more, so I decided to draw a bunch of sketches instead.

Wales x New Zealand
Do not judge them! Their love is more true and deep-felt than any love you will ever experience!
Heh, can’t you just see the romantic sundown behind them? :D

Denmark x Norway
This was by far the most popular couple. Once again Norway is trying to cure Denmark’s fear of nature in a safe environment, and finally finally it seems like they’ve come to a breakthrough. Then Denmark touched the butterfly, it flew off, which scared the crap out of Denmark who spilled beer over the both of them and accidentally kicked Norway in the face.

Canada x America
I’ve come to like this couple more than I originally did, because I realized that they’re completely fucking some anime/yaoi rules up. Canada would be the uke because he is such a cute little bishie, but screws it up by being the hairiest of all the guys. America would be the seme, but he is insecure like hell and still a virgin. Oh what fun. :XD:

America x Mexico
They love each other, because they can only see each other’s good sides. Mexico see a rich and handsome man with the power to help her out of poverty. America see a beautiful and exotic woman with strong religious morals (Which is one of the reasons why he is still a virgin. She is not putting out before the wedding!). America hates her brother though. Damn guy keeps sneaking into his yard and sometimes invites the whole family over without asking, and then he complains about America not treating his sister well, not paying her enough attention and all that stuff. God he hates that guy!

Sweden x Sister Finland
Oh dear Sister Finland. Could you possibly have chosen a worse guy to fall in love with? :XD:

Sister Sweden x Finland
That’s pretty much all there is to their "relationship". Big boobied sex. Enjoy. :D

Canada the Bishie

Canada the Bishie

Disturbed yet?

Canada is always called "cute", "insecure" and "fluffy" by you guys, and you are right, but I never realized what that meant until I saw this fan-made comic http://bette.deviantart.com/art/Canada-and-Denmark-140139035

In his more realistic form, Canada is the hairiest bishounen the world ever saw! That was something that simply could not go un-drawn, so here he is; a truly fluffy bishie, with body hair as soft as a bunny. :XD:

Climate Conference in Copenhag

Climate Conference in Copenhag

There has been a lot of talk about all the oil that might be near the North Pole, and now that the ice is melting it will get easier to find. USA, Russia and Denmark are the three countries fighting the hardest to claim the North Pole before that happens.

And if Denmark can’t get the oil under the North Pole, we will make the rest of the world help us in keeping anyone else from getting it!

After posting the comic about Canada being America’s hat, I got a lot of comments asking, “What about Mexico? They’re America’s beard!” http://www.bustedtees.com/mexicoamericasbeard

Well, this was the first thing I thought of when I read that.
For those who don’t get it, here’s and explanation. http://www.tinyurl.dk/10886

Yes, I made Mexico a girl just so I could make this joke. :XD:

Goodbye Norway

Goodbye Norway

I’m sorry for making you look at this sappiness, but I posted it for two reasons, 1) I had a talk with my Norwegian boss about the use of flags in Norway which I thought was interesting, 2) This was the only thing I managed to cram out today so I’m oddly fond of it.

In Norway they celebrate the day they became their own country with lots of singing and flag-waving.

I had another talk with a Norwegian nurse who said that it is mostly because the Norwegians were happy to finally rule themselves and not so much because they hated the Danes. “You were actually quite nice to us, as far as suppressors goes. You even let the Norwegian king rule Denmark while the Danish king was away”
Aww! If that doesn't warm a Dane's heart, what would? :D

So here is Denmark, looking at the Norwegian mountains, already missing Norway.

Again, sorry for the sappiness. Apparently I’m in that kind of mood. :blush:

Burn the Witch

Burn the Witch

In the north we love to celebrate the midsummer, though we do it in slightly different ways. :D

Sweden is well known for their midsummer parties, where they drink, eat, sing and dance around the maypole (a pole decorated with flowers and ribbons). A wonderfully peaceful tradition that can be seen her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut-tDvlSIU4

However, in Norway and Denmark (and a couple of other countries) we prefer to celebrate it with LOTS AND LOTS OF FIRE!!! Or as we like to call it, Sankt Hans bonfires.

Some places in Norway they build HUGE bonfires. I’ve even seen pictures of them burning down houses and claiming it to be a Sankt Hans bonfire. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJaStwHxowI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvbw8IONItE

In Denmark we haven’t gone to such extremes. We get our morbid jollies by putting a witch doll made of wood, hay, old cloth and filled with firecrackers on the fire, and then cheer when the firecrackers goes off, making it sound like she’s screaming. So wonderfully politically incorrect. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm46jsdJqXY http://www.tinyurl.dk/10738

And we will burn that witch no matter where we are. While looking for a good video of a Sankt Hans bonfire I found at least four of Danes burning wooden witches while confused Americans looked on. This is the cutest witch burning I have ever seen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBkwzYjNNts :D
