I will add a 4th vouch for this fic. It is so good that I spent about an hour trying to figure out how to resurrect my tvtropes account, just so I can add my own stamp of approval. There are problems (of course), but I like this fic so much that I'm willfully ignoring my inner!critic. Also, I LOVE that Ukraine and Belarus have significant roles in the story. One of my biggest peeves/fears while reading Hetalia slash-fic is that sooner or later, I will just stop reading because I will sense that the author is consciously or unconsciously ignoring the female nations. Additional edit/warning - I would have to categorize this Russia as OOC. Still a great read. Just giving a heads up since I've learned that how Russia is characterized is a bit of base breaker in the Hetalia fandom.

I third this. It's such a nice story, and a bit of an adventure. The plot is great, the characterization and writing are top-notch. On top of that, the group on facebook is just fun to be in. The history parts are nice, and you'd never know the author had a hard time due to the controversy of another one of her now deleted stories. This is, in my overly sappy opinion, one of the best RusCan, if not Hetalia or in general, fanfics out there.

Seconded so hard. The relationships are realistic and great, and on top of that a high-tension plot just got introduced. One of the best fics I ever read.

I think this was one of the best, multi-chaptered Canada/Russia stories I have ever read. The characterization of Canada and Russia were both well-developed and continue to be developed. Matthew is not a Sympathetic Sue nor is he a complete Deadpan Snarker who snarks every line. Instead, he is a perfect mixture of both, with even hints of being a bit like Alfred, mischievous and daring. And Russia is portrayed sympathetically and yet, there are many dark stains in his past where he had hurt others and himself including. The relationship between the two of them was simply amazing, as it builds up slowly and is never rushed. Russia is beginning to let go of the hate he carried for himself and becoming more comfortable in his own skin. And Canada never tried to force Russia to talk, but rather encourages him to let go of his self-hate and getting Russia to open up little by little. And with each chapter, we can see that secretly Russia is appreciating what Canada is doing and Canada is just happy that he was able to help.
