I couldn't leave for vacation before posting something Prussia-and-Fritz related. I wanted to, but I couldn't.
This all started about three years ago when I became interested in Prussia's Friedrich II.
This all started when I typed off a quick drabble set around Friedrich II's (the Great/Old Fritz) coronation. Friedrich started off completely unimpressed with Prussia and its people, mostly thanks to hating his father (who wouldn't?) and everything he stood for. Plus the Prussian people were terribly uncultured at the time, and Fritz lived for culture (much to his father's angry dismay). And so on and so forth -- anyway all this comes down to: I started, then realized I had to do a whole thing
based on this fabulous duo because Fritz's life is just too juicy not to observe "through Gilbo's eyes" and with Gilbo added to the mix -- BECAUSE GILBO MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER
. So I'm doing a thing
, as in a long fic with multiple chapters. I present to you here the drabble that started it off and the "prologue" to the later thing (which is actually an "earlier thing" starting with young-Fritz).Title:
