"Dead men lying on the bottom of the grave
Wondering when savior comes, is he gonna be saved
Maybe you're a sinner into your alternate life
Maybe you're a joker, maybe you deserve to die

They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope
He's never coming back

They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find the truth
He's never going home

Young men standing on the top of their own graves
Wondering when Jesus comes, are they gonna be saved
Cruelty to the winner, bishop tells the king his lies
Maybe you're a mourner, maybe you deserve to die

They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope
He's never coming back

They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find no truth
He's never going home

Welcome to the soldier side
Where there is no one here but me
People all grow up to die
There is no one here but me

Welcome to the soldier side
There is no one here but me
People on the soldier side
There is no one here but me"

APH Soldier Side by =virus-AC74. The suggester wrote: "When I first saw this picture I was truly stunned. The details and feelings in this picture tell such a sad story and really shows the bond between the two characters." I don't follow APH but the moment I set eyes on this piece I was overwhelmed by all the feelings this artwork conveyed to me. So heart-breaking. ( Suggested by Teci-chan and Featured by rydi1689 )

Ow Ow Owwwww! This hurts me ;n;
That is a very good thing, though, because I don't think I've ever seen a single piece of fanart that has been able to strike up so much emotion. Amazing job!!

This has got to be one of my favorite fanarts of Hetalia. The details are esquisite, the bond between the two perfectly portrayed-Germany looks devistated, and the way he clutches Italy to his chest instead of cradeling him in his arms shows that he knows he is already too far gone to save. The blood is a beautiful shade of red, contrasting perfectly with the dull colours in the background, and the sight of it splattered across Italy's beloved white flag nearly made me cry. You also incorperated the element of the countries that most people forget-that they are merely reflections of their people. Italy dying along with his troops shows this. This is masterfully done. Thank you for contributing such a wonderful piece of art to this fandom. :)

Italy looks dead, the wound is to the nape of the neck, if it bleeds, especially in these high quantities he's most likely gone already...such a heartbreaking image, and the details you worked into this are simply gorgeous. Germany's face is...very spot on.
The fact that there are only Italian soldiers' bodies lying there in the mud simply shatters any happiness. Ultimately, Italy seems to have lost all his troops and he died with them.
40% of the fanvids I've seen until now contain your picture, especially the dark! Hetalia and Dark! Italy ones. Too few (none I've seen) credit you, tho.

Eh...he's not dead the blood came from a shot wound in his shoulder.

TheLittleWaterDragon Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
From what I can tell, he was shot twice-once in the nape of the neck, another in the shoulder. Germany's hand is just covering one of the wounds. The hit to his neck most likely shattered his spine, which would have killed him if he was just a human alone- but because a vast amount of his troops died, he died as a nation as well. Or, at least I'm assuming he's dead, considering the fact that his whole body is just dangling limply, and Germany is holding him close instead of trying to patch up his wounds :P

TheLittleWaterDragon Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Possible, yes, but there's far too much blood to make it plausible. He probably died, but considering he's a personification, it's not a permanent death. It'll probably hurt like hell when he wakes up, though :P

About the art, I like how detailed it is, the grey and brown, the smoke and the whole Background and then that bright, dark blood in contrast...
