I always think of Canada as the lovechild of England and France after they had a drunken one night stand and England just left it to grow up with its big brother America who was like the rebel of the family.
this is 100% definitely what happened.
if i was in a fictional universe i wouldn’t be the main character i’d probably be that friend of the main character who lacks supernatural powers or special abilities but makes up for it with sarcasm and really lame one-liners
but that’s also usually the character that gets their own sub-fandom with dedicated fans and pretty cool fanart
however, that’s also usually the one character that dies
i was just like “oh yay”
“not so much yay”
