Awakening is a fanfic written for Hetalia: Axis Powers, by Gemini Star01. The story starts with the Soviet Red Army's liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration-extermination camp, but Russia discovers a pair of twin Nations at the camp. The fic mainly alternates between flashbacks and the twins' recovery.

The following Tropes are relevant to Awakening:

  • Affectionate Nickname: Between the North American twins, we have "Al" for America (from Alfred) and "Mattie" for Canada (from Matthew).
  • Advertisement:
  • Eye Scream: Does dripping blue dye into purple eyes count? Well, it probably does if Canada had to wear an eye patch for three weeks after the bandages were removed.
  • Fast Forward to Reunion: After Chapter 10 began in October 1946, we time-skip forward to almost a decade later, to the heartwarming reunion between the North American twins and Alyshea and Anastasia.
  • Flashback Nightmare: The main plot supplied enough literal Nightmare Fuel (both in-universe and on a meta level) to cause the twins to have Recurring Dreams about it, though it got less and less often as years passed.

How well does it match the trope?
