…don’t murder her. I think she has been punished enough today.

You’ll need a new sister soon.

I don’t think I’d like that.

Come on, it’s for a good thing. You can do it. You Canadians are always boasting about how you are the True North.

Ooc; The ice bucket challenge. Read here about ALS (Dutch website here for the Dutch people who follow me, I know you are there). I think it’s lovely that awareness is raised like this. We have brushed over this disease during my study and it’s… really, really sad. I donated some money for the research. Underneath I did a collaboration post sort of thing with alleenzaligmakend

*The camera is shaking and for a few seonds you only see some vague shapes. A male voice is mumbling the camera is steady, then the voice takes a few steps backwards and two people come into sight.*

[ The first thing to become actually visible however, is cue a Belgian woman, wearing a extra large black sweater, and sweatpants, with a large hat made of reed on her head, with her arms crossed and a displeased facial expression, pretty much just directed at the person behind the camera currently- aka Willem. ] —Hurry up already, sacreblue, don’t ya’ know how to handle a camera or what? I wanna get this over quickly so stop being a slowpoke you old turtle.

It’s been a while, alright? Have some patience. *He positions the camera on a large table and then joins the blonde woman on the grass. Although he was wearing regular clothes, he was barefeet. For a moment he glances at the large hat she was wearing, but he decides to say nothing about it.* So… I got nominated for this ice water awareness challenge by Denmark ( kingofscandinavia ) - who else, and… who challenged you?

[ She just rolls her eyes and lets out a super exaggerated sigh at his answer, and then just shrugs. ] Fine fine. [ And as soon as Willem starts speaking, she just switches to examining her nails, until he finishes. ] Ah? Hmm… Taurys— Lithuania did. Damnit Taurys. [ She shrugs again. ] By the way, you’re gonna go first though.

We did establish that before shooting the video. *He puts his hands in the pockets of his jeans.* Anyway, I thought I would get away with just donating money, but apparently that’s not how it works. *He sighs, then vaguely gestures to the Belgian.* So Lotte here is going to throw a bucket of ice water over my head. We used all her ice cubes in the freezer. And I just tested it. It’s freaking cold.

I know, I just wanted to remind you ‘bout it. [ She gives him a sly grin. ] And ah, yeah apparently me neither. But I guess it could be fun… aside from the fact that the water is indeed ice fucking cold, but I got this hat, so my hair’ll be okay at least. [ She’s just gonna grin again tbh. ] Ah well, ya’ ready though? Not that I really care whether you’re ready or not, because yer’ gonna get it either way. [ She mumbles and then bends over to pick up one of the two buckets in front of them, and turns around somewhat. ] C’mon, lower yourself a lil’, would ya’ now? I can’t reach your head like this. [ Huffs. ]

The only fun I’m going to get is to pour the same bucket on you. I would travel all the way to New Zealand for such an opportunity. *He grins back.* Get a chair - okay. Fine. *He brings himself down to one knee on the ground.*

…Pffft, ‘course. [ She then just sticks out her tongue at him and waits until he gets down on the ground, and when he actually does that, her grin widens even more. And then she just promptly pours the entire bucket filled with water and ice cubes over his head, and errupts in loud laughter as soon as he’s completely soaked. ]

*He closes his eyes just as the first drops of ice cold water hit him and he lets out a curse that we won’t repeat due to sensitive ears of under age video viewers and readers. He uses the sleeve of his shirt to wipe his face from the water, although that doesn’t change the fact that everything got completely wet. They weren’t the smallest buckets, you see. He sends a glare to Lotte, stands up, and grabs the remaining bucket.* Your turn now.

[ Upon hearing the other cursing, Lotte’s laughter becomes even more of a wheezing than it already was, and she even slightly bends over whilst holding her stomach, before then abruptly stopping with laughing, and her smile directly fading from her face, followed by her freezing in place completely. She then slowly stands up straight again, lets out a sigh, and fixes her hat before turning to the camera with a determined expression and slightly narrowed eyes. ] Make it quick.

Obviously, my lady. Wouldn’t want you to suffer. *An undertone of sarcasm could be heard, and for a few seconds Willem looks at the hat she was wearing. But that won’t do. With one hand holding the full bucket, he snagged her hat with the other, flung it away and threw the bucket over her now hat-less head.*

—“My lady” [ She repeats that in a mocking manner, and just rolls her eyes. Though she froze in place when she could suddenly feel the hat she was wearing being yanked off her head, but before she could actually process what happened and could react properly, she was already completely soaked in cold water. And of course, a blood-curling scream escaped her lips, and that was followed by a series of cursing words in multiple foreign dialects. She then just slowly turns around, with her hands raised next to her head, as a gesture of ‘oh my god my hair’, and slowly pushes her bangs back, since they were covering her eyes due the water, and just glares at the Dutchman next to her. ] ………I’m going to punch you. LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO MY HAIR- WHAT THE HELL WILLEM.

*He just smirks at her, although he’s pretty soaked himself,and he is the one who has to drive back in wet clothes. At least his shoes were dry.* I wouldn’t want to ruin your hat. Remember it’s for a good cause. I think this is done, isn’t it? *He points in the direction of the camera.*

[ She just squints at him for a few more minutes, and then lets out a sigh, and shakes her head, causing water drops to fly through the air. ] Ya’ did that on purpose! You idiot, hmpf, just you wait, I’ll make sure to get you back for this— and ja I guess, just turn it off already geez, It’s embarrassing enough people have to see me with this horrible haircut already. [ Lets out some whining noises ]

I swear it was a complete accident. *He grins at her, then moves behind the camera to switch it off. The screen goes black.*

I know, you were with Alfred before. I do remember something. Not much, I admit, but that I remembered. *He manages to reduce a laugh to a hopefully, supportive smile. No laughing at Peter.* That’s a start. Next time, try to stay in the water without someone holding you up. 

I will. 

But if I try to stay in the water without someone holding me up, I might sink! And that’s no good, that’s — that’s not fun at all.

[ he puffs out his cheeks ]

Good! My birthday’s in February, though, so — so you might, you’re gonna have to remember I’ll be seventy two then.

There are tiny swimming pools, where even you can stand. And I’m not saying we should just throw you in. That’s no way to teach someone to swim… not anymore.

I might just have to write your date on the calendar, then. So I won’t forget.

Last year, I didn’t! Last year, I was too scared of the water to try and swim. I only started, I only started this year so I could try to surprise dad.

[ Peter wrinkles his nose ]

I’m seventy one. And I’m trying! I tried.

Hm. It’s only natural to be scared, but you’ll get over it…how’s that like? You’re living with Arthur again, aren’t you?

Sorry. Seventy one. I’ll try to remember that.

I’m living with him now, but — but before, I wasn’t! And I wanted to surprise him before but I never did it because it was — because, I still didn’t do it. But I did stay in the pool for fifteen minutes without sinking because someone was holding me up, though!

[ HUFF PUFF ]

Yeah — yeah! Next time, try to remember.

If a church spends money on decoration rather than spending it on charity… I don’t know. Of course a church doesn’t have to look like it’s in ruins and I won’t say no to nice heating systems and comfy benches, but some are really overdoing it. 

…good. I’m glad not everything is the same.

It does - true. That has to do with the fact that you really can’t stay in a place long enough before people notice, though. Not that I’d want to stay in one spot for over fifty years. 

That and housing the priests and nuns. Y-ou don’t approve of the Sistine Chapel or even Jubilee Church I take it? Everything doesn’t need to be austere for the focus to really be where it should.

I won’t even try to play missionary or crusader now you know. You can relax.

You certainly must have quite the portfolio of arrangements by now, even with that as a cause. Sometimes I do forget that it’s possible to hide your status from your population for others.

*He shrugs.* I don’t disapprove of it. I guess it’s nice to look at. But I still think it’s a bit of waste of resources, especially when you know there have been times where they made people pay money for a higher chance to get in heaven and put the money in their own pocket. These times have changed, though.

Yeah, I know.

I just move to another province and start over. It’s nowhere near deserted enough to live away from suspicious eyes, so moving around it is. But that’s alright - how do you mean? Don’t say you just blatantly let everyone know who you are.

It’s — uhm!! I was trying, this summer, but — but I didn’t do it, I guess. Maybe next year!

*He’s growing amused.* I guess you told yourself that last year too. There’s such a thing as indoor pools, if the weather was too cold.

You’re seventy. You should learn to swim.
