Pairing: Alfred/Francis/Arthur (also Francis/Arthur/Alfred and a little Ludwig/Francis/Gilbert)
Setting: High school AU
Warnings: Francis' language. Use of human names. Bright!Alfred (oh my).
I had seven different versions of this fic—all severely complementary of one another—before I settled on this one…and even then I started the second scene over about four or five times, and the last scene over thrice. Holy crap it hated me. Anyway, despite the difficulty it presented me, I am so glad I got it done.
It actually helped immensely when I decided to center it around hetalia_contest ’s week 03 prompt, “mirrors,”, even if implicitly. [ edit ] And it managed to snag second place, amazingly enough! ヽ(ﾟｰﾟ*ヽ) Thank you all who voted, so much. ♥
( two young men run to escape the summer rain. like zeus in olympia, when francis looks at his reflection, he sees two different things: a supporter and a whore. heartbreak through three scenarios. [hsau. alfred/francis/arthur. ludwig/francis/gilbert.] )
