Characters: Peru, mentions of Martín, Manu, Catalina and Julinha. And Spain, of course.
Summary: Miguel loves Spain and, sometimes, it’s so hard to find a way around it.
The viceroy of Peru was instrumental in organizing armies to suppress uprisings in Upper Peru and to defend the region from armies sent by the juntas of the Río de la Plata. After success of the royalist armies, Absacal annexed Upper Peru to the viceroyalty, which benefited the Lima merchants as trade from the silver-rich region was now directed to the Pacific. Because of this, Peru remained strongly royalist and participated in the political reforms implemented by the Cádiz Cortes (1810–1814)
AAAH OKAY I couldn’t reblog this last night because my internet went tsun over tumblr and I was on DRUGS but guess what I CAN DO IT NOW. I already told you but I think you really, really nailed Miguel. I think his loyalty to Spain is very fitting in him as is his loyalty towards his siblings and the bits about Julita illustrate how naïve Miguel was. Because of his position, he couldn’t really perceive the struggles of the underdogs but you can see he’s beginning to see it and so, he tries to justify Spain because, in the end, he still loves him. Also, STUPIDLY SEXY NARRATIVE.
DAMN BERINHA. DAMN YOU!!!!1 /SHAKES FIST.
