♱ Relations ♱
(in progress. Ask me if you'd like to be judged and have a spot on this list. Please make sure we've RPed at least a bit so I can correctly place you in the right category.)
"Ich liebe dich immer." My one true love.
(will most likely never be filled.)
"Du liegst mir sehr am Herzen." I care for you immensely, my close friend.
"You've grown into quite a beautiful person. I still care for you a lot, and I have a deep love for you, but I don't think I'll be admitting that to you anytime soon. For now, I'm just happy we're still close friends."
"You're one of the best men I know. You're goodhearted and enjoyable to be around. Honestly, I find that I'm very at ease when I'm around you. I'm glad we're friends."
"You're the same old, same old, I suppose. You've quickly become a close friend, and my, wasn't I surprised. I hope that we'll remain good friends for a while longer."
"Ich habe keine Ansicht. Oder ich mag Sie nicht." I have no judgement of you, or I simply dislike you.
"You're not that hospitable to me, to be honest. And I know we've had our scuffles in the past. But you're a respectable man, and I certainly don't despise you or anything."
"I don't... hate you. But you certainly aren't my best friend. You just... annoy me, I suppose. And you bicker with Hungary far too often."
"... There are many things I could say about you, but I'll restrain myself. Honestly. The past is the past, and although we dislike each other, could it hurt you to be civil around me?"
"Ich hasse Sie!" Go away.
(none at the moment.)
Land der Berge, Land am Strome,
Land der Äcker, Land der Dome,
Land der Hämmer, zukunftsreich!
Heimat großer Töchter und Söhne,
Volk, begnadet für das Schöne,
Heiß umfehdet, wild umstritten,
Liegst dem Erdteil du inmitten
Einem starken Herzen gleich.
Hast seit frühen Ahnentagen
Hoher Sendung Last getragen,
Mutig in die neuen Zeiten,
Frei und gläubig sieh uns schreiten,
Arbeitsfroh und hoffnungsreich.
Einig laß in Jubelchören,
Vaterland, dir Treue schwören.
Land of mountains, land by the stream,
Land of fields, land of cathedrals,
Land of hammers, with a promising future,
Home to great daughters and sons,
A nation highly blessed with beauty,
Strongly feuded for, fiercely hard-fought for,
You lie in the middle of the continent
Like a strong heart,
Since the early days of the ancestors you have
Borne the burden of a high mission,
Much tried Austria,
Much tried Austria.
Bravely towards the new ages
See us striding, free, and faithful,
Assiduous and full of hope,
Unified, in jubilation choirs, let us
Pledge allegiance to you, Fatherland
Much beloved Austria,
Much beloved Austria.
