Go To

A Hetalia Reader-Insert created by Miss-Sherlocked.

Set at an exercise camp, it features a strict, iconoclastic Ludwig/Germany as the Director of Activities and an asthmatic reader trying desperately to keep it a secret. And also not die.


  • Ask a Stupid Question...: Lampshaded, as the reader never actually said it to him.
    Germany: "W-Was? T-this whole time?"

  • Babies Ever After: As revealed in the epilogue.
  • Break-Up/Make-Up Scenario: When Ludwig quits his lessons early, and reader subsequently goes to his cabin in the middle of the night.
  • Gratuitous German: Used constantly in the story, with phrases like "Was?" "Sehr gut." "Mine Gott." etc.
  • Happy Ending
  • It's Quiet… Too Quiet: Ludwig when he realizes Reader's Big Secret.
  • Lovable Jock: Ludwig.
  • Nerdy Inhaler: Slightly subverted, as the reader isn't seen as "nerdy". As an asthmatic, though, they always seem to have one in hand. Except, of course, when they actually need it.
  • Not So Stoic: Lugwig's demeanor suddenly unravels when reader is Trying Not to Cry
  • Rage Breaking Point: Ludwig on the second day of training, when reader unintentionally insinuates he's only interested in saving her because it would reflect poorly on the camp if she got hurt.
  • Advertisement:
  • Trying Not to Cry: Reader during the first day of training.
  • What Could Possibly Go Wrong?: Done by the reader several times.
    "It can't be that bad… right?"
    "Here goes nothing. I mean, how bad can it be, right?"

How well does it match the trope?
