Summary: "I'm not 'making an appearance', France," the other Nation's name nearly sticks in his throat, and England lets his lip curl. There are no diplomats watching now, no kings or governors present to judge how they behave. Not even any other Nations, so why bother with any pretenses at all? "I'm here because I'm forced to be, because half my nobles are in love with your fancy golden mirrors. You think I'd be here if I had any choice in the matter? I'd rather be at sea."
