I went and watched Reagan's address right after reading this story. When the camera zoomed out to show the whole stage and the crowd, I must confess, I half expected to see Alfred sitting in one of the official's chairs on stage, haha.
But seriously, thank you for posting this. It's gotten me a little more interested in learning the actually happenings in History. And inspiring others to WANT to learn, should always be praised. Well done.

This is a really nice story. Beautifully written :)
But I have a few issues. I hope you dont mind my critic ;)
First: Half of you german lines dont make any sense.
"Noch nicht einmal darüber nachdenken, dass zur Eröffnung des Mundes oder verkaufen, so wahr mir Gott helfe ich werde euch zu essen Ihrem Schreibtisch durch deinen Arsch!"
I really do not get what you want to say and german is my native tongue o.O
And Secondly: I think the last line destroys quite a bit of the story. While I dont mind GermanyxItaly on the sidelines and acctually support the couple(!), I really think that In a moment like this... when you see your brother after more then 40 years of seperation... you dont think about your lover at all.

I would suggest changing the German lines into English. If the reader has to stop and copy and paste the lines into a translator, it throws them out of the story and destroys the reading experience.
Secondly, there were so many grammatical errors in the German lines you used that I assume you got them from an online translator yourself. Online translators aren't at all reliable and shouldn't be trusted.
All that said, the story was wonderful and I loved your portrayal of Germany's pain and struggles through the years. The parts with Prussia were especially heart-wrenching. You've obviously done quite a bit of research for this fic.
