Somewhat surprisingly, in old Danish stories Death is actually pretty nice (when it's not a headless horse). The stories tend to be about a man or woman walking to somewhere when suddenly a stranger shows up. They're friendly and chatty and keep the person company until they encounter something or get to the destination and suddenly the stranger looks like a corpse and the person realize it was Death all along.
One such story is about a man who meets another man and they walk together. They see a group of men on the road so the man turns to the stranger because he's worried and the stranger looks at him with "a death face" and disappears. The group of men turns out to be a gang of robbers and kills the man.
In this case I like to think it's a sad/cute story about the man Tage who has an illness and is kept company by a friendly Death trying to make him less afraid.
having some sort of company before dying
cause usually many are afraid to die alone
but still i thought the second story was kind of sad since death and that man were walking and death just left him with a sign that this is where and how his life would end <:/
And I love the illustration you've done. Looks like something straight out of a children's book.
I could have made like the best stories ever, omgimsototallygoingtousethis)
I remember a story by H. C. Andersen, I think it's called "A story of a Mother". It's about a mother (of course) that has a child, but the child is very weak, and it seems like it grows weaker every day. One winter night, a stranger in black asks if he can stay for a little at her house, which she allows him to. When he then leaves, she realizes that the child has stopped breathing and that the stranger was Death.
The story doesn't end there, it's pretty long, actually. And very sad. And a reminder why H. C. Andersen is one of the greatest authors Denmark ever had. TT7TT
