Question 51: The Tragic Fate of the Romanovs... by Ask-Soviet-Russia Question 51: The Tragic Fate of the Romanovs... by Ask-Soviet-Russia
There is much that occurred in those few hours...much sadness...столько боли...

It would take much time to explain, for you all to understand.

*Slowly makes his way out of the room, and steps outside to recollect his thoughts*

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

(Oh, GOSH is this a hard question. This is one of the MOST dramatic events to occur in the Russian Revolution in my opinion; when the Romanov family was massacred on July 17th, 1918. What's even more chilling, is that the 95th anniversary was just yesterday....I didn't realize that until now. O__O"

I don't know if Ivan actually committed the murders or not, but in my mind, I'm pretty sure they gave the task to him. As a sort of 'rebirth', if you will, and as a sign of him wholly committing himself to the new Soviet government, by snuffing out any chance of the Tsars ever returning to claim the throne. It's a cruel thing to do to one's own country, but...in a way, I believe Ivan would have preferred to do this event himself anyways.

It's not because he loathes or hates the Romanov's themselves, but simply because he is aware of the tortures this family could go through, if he does not complete this task himself. If Ivan wouldn't do it, then someone else would. And would most likely make it more painful for them.

So in the end, Ivan knew this event had to be done, and did so with a cold outlook, to hide the torture he was going through inside. Like he states above, it's a family he helped to raise, and a way of life he nurtured for over 700 hundred years. Being the executioner of something you've held dear for such a long time....such a loss can effect you in drastic ways, I would think.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ivan suffered from heart pains and migraines for days after this event; the Tsar and his family, the center of the monarchy which had run the country for such centuries, had died. And was replaced with a completely new regime of order. It takes time to adjust to such drastic changes.

I may or may not be thinking too hard about this question...but I like giving legitimate answers. Please excuse my rambling~ I personally consider this a very serious topic. v__v)

Well, товарищ, what can I say? It's indeed true that you have raised a dynasty and nurtured it for 700 years. But, your people, most of them, proletarians and peasants, were tired of the imperial lifestyle. *Hugs Ivan* You did the right thing, even if it was terrible. You avoided them a worse fate. The past will always be hard to remember, друг.

Hm~ Spasibo for your concern, little one~ ^ J ^ But I would like to remind you of this, da?

Even though there is much sorrow in my past, there is also much beauty to be admired. The little happy moments, are the ones I remember best~ I will always remember Anastasia for her little smiles, and gifts she would bring me...da, she was good child~ :iconivansmileplz:

He he he...must you ask~? *still has not forgiven the England who put the child spell on him~ XD* We can give him some other lovely gifts as well, while we are there, he he~! ^ J ^


....:iconrussiastareplz::iconkolkolplz: I do not care much for Amerika's terrible telling of my history. The only moment I slightly enjoyed in movie was moment in Winter Palace...*sighs, with a little sad smile* It shows a scene I witness myself sometimes when I visit the old home of the Tsars.

(I still love that movie, simply out of pure childhood nostalgia~ TT v TT Some of the songs still make me cry to this day~)

Other lovely gifts? What did you have in mind? I proposed we TP his house with American Flag toilet paper!
Perhaps string french lingerie across his lawn and blow bagpipes at six in the morning! Scotland told me to do that XD Do you ever visit the Winter Palace? I'll bet it brings back a whole mess of memories.



 ( I know! XD I always pictured Russia watching the movie wit this look on his face :iconrussiawthplz: and being all like "What is this crap?! Rasputin wasn't magical!"

*is stunned for a brief moment, after hearing 'American Flag toilet paper'* .....Amerikan flag toilet paper?? There is such thing?? Amerika is stranger than I thought...

Ahem, da~! We should do all those things, they are all very good ideas, da~! ^ J ^ What I have in mind is a bit more...special, he he~! Think of it as 'returning the favor', if you will~! Kol kol~! :iconplayfulrussiaplz:

And da, I still visit Winter Palace. Is open to public these days, though more as museum than anything else. Is used to remind the people of the splendors the Tsars lived with compared to the common folk. For myself...*slowly puts his gloved hands in his pockets, slightly downtrodden at his thoughts* ...it serves as reminder of what I had to give up, and all who paid for those actions...

(I've always wanted to watch Ivan see "Anastasia"~! It might be dangerous, but I personally would probably find it hilarious! XD I wonder if anyone has drawn a cartoon of such a scene yet...cause I would call them a genius~)

*allows himself to be dragged, at the moment not all that caring on where he was taken, until Romano came to a halt and pointed out one specific ride. His eyes follow the movements of the coaster's current occupants, listening to their shrill screams as the ride zoomed past them at alarming speeds. Ivan hardly blinked at the spectacle, his mind still foggy and blank of preferences as to what the two of them did. Though...listening to the shrieks of the passengers around them could be amusing in the least bit. Nodding his head slightly in agreement, he moves in front of Romano* Very well. I will make path through annoying line, da?

*Ivan then takes on a dark, menacing expression, childishly giggling all the while as the people waiting in the line fled like sheep from the terrifying Russian, cowering at a distance and watching Ivan with cautious eyes. When they were nearly at the end of the long line, Ivan ceased his frightening performance, and resumed his stoic outlook as he placed his gloved hands in his pockets and waited patiently for their turn on the popular roller coaster*

*Romano jumped into the front seat after the current passengers left, looking sick. He usually hated roller coasters, but today was the day he'd forget all about his fears and enjoy the ride. After all, he had one of his closest friends with him. Nothing could possibly go wrong. However, as they slowly chugged up the steep hill toward the inevitable drop, he felt butterflies in his stomach and suddenly didn't think this was a good idea.*

So... Ivan... how's your view on roller coasters....?

A...dog...? *looks briefly confused, but his expression relaxes upon remembering*

Ah, yes...I believe the dog had been shot by a soldier to silence the barking...the gunfire had spooked it, and it put up quite a chase before dying... *Ivan becomes quiet after this brief explanation, his eyes glazing over as the memories came flooding back*
