Pranking with the bros
This is a list of random headcanons about the UK+Ireland brothers when doing pranks because I’m 100% sure these five idiots do prank wars at least once a year. If they can’t be direct with sharing their affections for each other, might as well show their love by being absolute menaces.
Scotland is vicious with his pranks. He’s the one who tapes a mousetrap beside the light switch, fills hundreds of cups with water in the bedroom, unleashes a dozen of crickets in the house or hide a dead fish somewhere. It always ends up with at least one injury or a destroyed property.
England’s pranks are intricate and can be as vicious as Scotland if it’s aimed at said brother. His goal is more to scare the person, which can easily lead to disaster if gone wrong. He’s the one who puts a fake spider in the lampshade, fills the cupboard with ping pong balls, puts a transparent wrap at the doorway on eye level or sticks an air horn under the toilet seat.
If the prank is between England and Scotland, it usually ends up with a wrestling match and at least one broken chair.
Ireland's pranks are absurd and so random, it makes him unpredictable. It’s not aimed at the person, but at their surroundings. Unscrewing all the lightbulbs, moving the furniture by one inch, turning the picture frames upside down, wrapping a room in foil or cover the car with post-its.
Wales normally doesn’t participate, preferring to watch from the sidelines and silently judging them. However, the moment he gets targeted, he becomes the pettiest and sneakiest prankster ever. Switching the salt with sugar, pouring water in their shoes, replacing the jelly of a donut with mayonnaise or covering the bar soap with clear nail polish. It’s not harmful, just inconvenient and annoying.
The worst part is that Wales takes his time with his pranks. He doesn’t do it immediately after he’s targeted. No, he waits weeks, even months, before he jumps into action. The others become paranoid when he does nothing, knowing it will come when they least expect it.
The brothers also show no restrain on using magic to their advantage. From a hex of making you screech like a banshee or an itching curse that gets worse the more you scratch to a jinx that makes you walk backward, the possibilities are endless.
However, no one can use magic on the baby of the family: North
Unless you want the wrath of the others.
Having spent most of his life without magic, North relies on his wits and cunning to prank his brothers, and that makes him a terrifying opponent. His approach is similar to Wales in terms of sneakiness, but much more chaotic. He’s the one who puts hair dye in the shampoo bottle, builds a whole slingshot contraption that shoots pies, spreads oil on the floor with a bag of floor on the ceiling ready to drop or puts Lego around the bed in the middle of the night.
North is basically the embodiment of Home Alone.
The others would try to bribe him to be on their team by offering him apple pies, his favourite dessert. It sometimes works but not before North plans a prank on them as thanks for the treat.
Overall, they’re a chaotic bunch of idiots <3
