(( Comment please! This is a songfic. Also it's better if you listen to the song during or (if you can't listen and read) before you read. Let Her Go by Passenger if you don't already know.))

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

"You're so blind Ludwig! People are DYING!" (Name) yelled at her husband for the hundredth time. What happened to him? To THEM? He had been so kind, so loving. Now he was a monster. Proudly showing off the red piece of death fabric tied around his bicep. They were the perfect couple. Walking their dogs in the park, sharing ice cream, now they did nothing but fight. " For a better tomorrow! Don't you understand woman!? You're the blind one! Don't you see how wonderful this could be for us!? For the world! Who cares if a few bratty children die!?" He yelled and (Name's) eyes widened. " Who are you? You are not the man I married... children Ludwig. CHILDREN! There was a time when you wanted to be a father." She ripped the diamond ring from her finger and threw it at his chest before storming out the door. He walked out into the door frame and yelled at her in rage. " Leave bitch! A new German world will rise without blind rats like you!"

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

Berlin was a crumbling mess of a city with decaying light. Ludwig looked into the small bit of beer in the bottom of his glass and let a tear fall into it. So much death. Death everywhere. When (Name) left it all went down hill. How could this happen? It was suppose to be wonderful! Everything...everyone was dead. He had killed the very people that he had sought to protect and raise. Shoving naked humans into ovens. (Name) was right he was nothing but a monster. WWI...WWII death just fallowed him like a cloud tied to his neck. Yet she had been his sun. Came into his crumpled life and took the time to glue him back together, painful glass piece by piece.

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much and you dive too deep

Another year passed and wounds began to scab over....well not really. They just stopped gushing blood. (Name)... oh sweet (Name). She was the only thing he could think of. The only thing he wanted. Where was she now? Had she even survived? Had she re-married? They had never officially got a divorce but he assumed that's what she was doing when she walked out the door. Her silver glittering ring dangled limply around his neck on a thin chain as a cruel reminder of what he had done to her. If she ever came back he would be more than happy to put the ring back on her beautiful finger and take her up into his arms. Of course....that might never happen. Oh what had he done? The whole time she had been the right one.

'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

There she was. Looking at the different fruits in the grocery store. "(Name)...(NAME)!" Ludwig yelled dropping the bread in his hand and running to her. She turned and looked at him with shock and hurt in her eyes. " Mein Gott (Name)..."He hugged her and buried his face in his neck sobbing like a boy. " Oh (Name). I am so sorry. Ich liebe dich! Ich liebe dich! Ich liebe dich! I was wrong. I was wrong you were right. I-"  "I heard what you did Ludwig... Surrendering. I missed you." Her small arms wrapped around him and laid her chin on his head taking in his familiar scent. " I don't know if I can forgive but... I can't go without you again. I'm such a fool because ich liebe dich." A tiny smile cracked onto his lips for the first time since she left, an honest kind happy smile. He took off his necklace and slipped the ring on her finger amazed she didn't protest. Only cupped his face and kissed him passionately. " Uh...sir... Do you want your bread?" A worker asked picking it up and giving them a confused look. Ludwig gave no answer only stuck his arm behind him and waved the man off.

I do 10p commissions!

So I was riding in the train trough the German country side when I first heard this long and LOVED IT. I instantly knew it would be perfect for a fanfic. I didn't know WHO to use though. Then seeing as I heard it in Germany I decided to use him. Even if I have over used him..screw it there is no such things as "too much Doitsu". Anyway I know the lyrics are off but I wasn't going to write the chorus over and over.

Song: Let Her Go by Passenger

Like Skyrim? Oh look I have a whole group devoted to Skyrim/Hetalia Crossover and I have written five crossovers myself.

What kinda sucks is that I am jewish so a lot of fanfics that might be related to the holocaust are hard to read if the fanfic is supporting it but anyway its really good!

Yeah I can imagine that's pretty rough. Here in the good ol' U.S. of A the Jewish population is a minority so I know few of the writers from here probably think about it. I only know one Jewish person and we always joke back and forth about our dance skills.

I would have taken him back, as well. It wasn't his fault he was blinded by the crap being fed to him by his boss. It was only a matter of time before he would see what had really become of the promises - they were all lies. But, would have taken lots of years to forgive him...but to never love him again or take him back? In my heart, there's no way I couldn't do so.

I don't know what I would do. Probably kick his nuts, send him to the couch, then tuck him in before he falls asleep and kiss that strong sexy nose.
