Yaoi, while being an inaccurate portrayal of gay relationships in general, isn't all about rape and abuse. It's just inaccurate, and it isn't always offensive. In fact, it isn't always inaccurate. I've read some yaoi that was light porn, and portrayed a relatively accurate gay couple.
Besides that, I can judge from the lack of sex and lack of any two people of the same sex declaring their love for each other or being in love that this isn't a BL fic, honestly.
Besides that, this wasn't well written. It just wasn't.
The main thing that was wrong with it is that this is a poorly disguised rant, and there seems to be a LOT of Ivan bashing (pun not intended) and while I can recognize that one persons headcanons and interpretations of the characters will differ from my own and from the majority of fans, and sometimes far out of canon, he was just OOC in this. He smiles and he's creepy even if he doesn't want to be and he has huge breaks from reality and he's childishly cruel and cunning, but I really didn't see any of the canon portrayal of Russia in this.
Prussia, on the other hand, seems to be you inserting yourself into the character so that you can rant through them, which is a practice that is both bad writing and not enjoyable to read.
Oh, and one more thing:
This isn't a criticism of you or your fic at all, but I would just like to say that Prussia, if he's interpreted as becoming East Germany after his dissolution, would still live anyway, since the being separated for 40 years meant that the lifestyles and ideologies of East and West Germany are totally different. (Though, I can see how it'd be different economically, but I've never been able to see or figure out how it could be culturally different. Still, this is mentioned a lot when I see stuff on the East and West.) Also they are actually thinking of splitting it into two countries again, since it might as well be. Not with the wall or closed border, just a border. I don't know what that would mean for anything, just putting it out there.

（ーー；）jeez, do you even know what yaoi means?
And I wasn't surprised to find that you were american.
I mean, you have the wrong idea about communism. There is nothing wrong with communism, it just goes wrong a lot.
And actually, I wouldn't give a damn if the french inhabited england and vice versa. I get on well with the French.
I mean, it's not like they're, say, pervs or anything.
I'm not getting my heart checked and you don't know what yaoi means.

I have never seen such a beautiful, no, fucking gorgeous story in my 15 years of life until just a few minutes ago. The emotion, imagery, and just about everything make this so great.
I mean all this in my highest respect. Please do myself and other readers who felt the same the honor to keep writing on.
