Russian Ballet by Lilithnanhart Russian Ballet by Lilithnanhart
IVAN IS THE BEST Y/Y?

No, seriously, when I was younger I thought Ballet was Russian. Because they are badass. And to be a ballerina you have to have muscles of flexible steel. It was only when I realized France has a love for making silent Ts did it hit me, BAM.

The 'I make this look good' line makes me think of agent J from Men in Black. I imagine Ivan doing a Wil Smith impression with that line. LOL!!!

Yes Ivan, yes you do. And my biggest hope when I'm finally able to go abroad in your country is to see a large hairy man stuffed into a tutu like a proud sausage. If I don't, that will probably be the day that I lose all faith in humanity.

(You're also right about France/Russia. Albeit quite a bit of historical interaction between them).

(this pic is extra amusing to me because in my head canon Ivan does not like 'GIRLY' things)

If I ever manage to visit there, it will be to go to pride events (if they will ever exist DX), concerts, animation conventions and where ever the hell they keep their Borzoi. :heart: Because I have cultured tastes, naturally. XD

(Exactly! When I finish all these other ideas I have I should write something historical with them, to remind our fans there are other pairings. =3= )

(My head-canon agrees. Though within itself ballet is not girly at all. In that outfit yes, but Mikhail Baryshnikov pirouettes like a BA)

I want to go abroad to study history there, and generally see as much of the country as I can. It's both a deep visceral tug in that direction, and I want to see what I've read and get the "other side" of things so to speak, since I feel like a lot of text I'm reading now may have a Cold War bias. You can find bias anywhere, but it doesn't hurt to compare and contrast. XD

Yes, yes you should, please? :3

Ballet is hardly girly yes, but mainstream audiences tend to view it in that fashion, so I believe Ivan can't help but feel that way as well on occasion (this is not one of those occasions XD).

Oh man, where I live it's very biased. Most people think Francis doesn't know how to fight, and without Alfred WWII would've been lost. FAIL. If Alfred didn't step in, Ivan would've won it all. Francis has won more than 70% of his battles. What is their problem?

Since I know you'll read it! What piece of history should I take from? Any suggestions? X3

Makes sense. It also reminds me of this mock RP I did with my friend where Alfred insisted the ballet is what made Ivan gay. And just the ballet, nothing else. Alfred's smurt like that.

I don't know, but a lot of people have the same misconception where I live as well. During the first week of classes my Western Civilizations professor was like, "Most of you have probably heard that stereotype that the French can't fight. And I'm here to tell you that it's wrong." I forget where it comes from.

I'd personally love to see something about France and Russia during the 1970's-80's. I found this blog talking about how they experienced a lot of ups and downs during those years, and Gorbachev took a trip to France to repair relations. Here's the website: [link] It's a little vague though, so you don't have to use this prompt. Or I can find a few more links if you're interested. :3

Alfred is a crazy child genius of sorts, isn't he?

My favorite American comedy website loves picking on the French (and to be honest, everyone else) but they always stick up with them when it comes to their historical articles. It makes me happy inside.

Whatever you want, really. ;) I'm aware they've done quite a bit together but I've never have given the chance on reading any of it. If you want the 1970-80's I'll do it! Links to that time will be most helpful!

That inspires all kinds of scary thoughts about what if Alfred was a kid in a science fair.

That's good. =D

Here are a couple articles that I found that didn't require a subscription to read in their entirety: [link] [link] But then I found this piece of current events, and thought you might be interested: [link] Whichever one you find more inspiring. ;3

You have probably heard this, but there are both French and Russian ballet, both having distinct moves and a crazy words that if you don't know a thing (like Me) it's all greek.

-my sister is in ballet, and she talks about it all the time:slamhead:

But I still love it

Aw, nothing else can kill an enjoyment than overdose. Hope she finds some other hobbies to balance it out! Thank you very much for the fave!
