Title: It Was Here that the Romance of My Life Began [FF.NET LINK]
Word Count: 6,064
Summary: England had learned on this trip, or rather learned again, that America, for such a young nation, had loads and loads of history to be proud of and cherish. He’d shared so much of it with him on this vacation; each day a new story, new memories created and old memories unearthed.
Note: Written for sakuratsukikage at hetaliasunshine... months ago, but for some reason I forgot to post it here. The story was originally posted here. There are footnotes at the end of the fic. All the ‘quotes’ that separate the sections are from Theodore Roosevelt (as is the title!). There's also a lovely piece of fanart done by abarero for the story. You can see it HERE.
( “Teddy once called this place a grim fairyland,” America noted, and his tone was cheeky. “Don’t know about any fairies, although I guess if there were any…” )
