i do understand where you’re coming from with this pet peeve - GB barely teaches about the American Revolution in their history lessons because it was never really that important. Britain as an empire had a lot more to worry about, and it was probably seen as an annoyance..
however i don’t think this can be put in a pet peeve because in hetalia, arthur was obviously very affected during the revolutionary war scene. while this might not have been the case historically, England was angst-ridden canonly, and it was a major scene. since we’re writing fanfics about hetalia, we probably should go with how hetalia portrayed it.
you’re the first Hungarian; thank you for offering your services!!
first, you’ll need to look up what parts of the body tetraplegia (aka quadriplegia) affects. make sure that you’re portraying this condition correctly. here are some sites that might help! i found these sites googling “tetraplegia”.
you also need to make emphasis on the handicap. some people write that characters have this illness but later completely disregard it in order to write stupid ship fuel. don’t be that person.
write about how it might feel like living with tetraplegia. it’s obviously a very limiting handicap and since you’re including a very major body condition that affects you for the rest of your life, make sure that the effects of the tetraplegia is reflected in every action that character makes.
you could also look up articles about living with tetraplegia if you want a more realistic and accurate view on the lifestyle of one with the condition - movies aren’t always the most sensitive and accurate portrayals of handicaps. articles about living with tetraplegia could help you in writing the other character well too; knowing what the character with tetraplegia needs will let you know what the other character can do to aid the tetraplegic.
if you’re considering an eventual romance between the two characters, just make sure you keep the tetraplegia in mind. don’t let romance take over- some writers completely disregard the condition they’re writing their shipping fuel, and that makes their writing very offensive and dismissive of the condition. writing like that makes the condition seem like just a plot advancement or a shipping ground, which is what a condition/illness should NEVER be.
i’m adding a new rule: no more than 5 people per language. but you’re fine! i’ve added you to the list; thank you!!
for general reference - behindthename is at least a good place to start. there are plenty of name sites but behindthename is really excellent and does have tags for cultures and countries in which names are found.
that’s totally fine!! you’re on the list.
One OC who gets PAIRED up almost all of the males, especially the Allies and Axis. I do like OCs that are strong, yet has has their ups and downs, while most of the canon characters respect, admire or get annoyed by them. But not ALL of the Allies nor Axis would fall for ONE girl. They have their taste in women. Plus I would love to see OCs bromancing with characters as well or even a sweet platonic relationship.

Ocs or Reader Inserts dressing as a boy to go the ‘All Boy Hetalia’ school and become a special snowflake that the boys fall in love with.

I really cannot stand it when they make reader inserts where the reader is a kawaii desu desu transfer student in Gakuen and all the guys fall for her and the girls either remain unnoticed or act like jealous cockblocking bitches. Even worse when the guys use the excuse “sorry we’re gay” towards the canon girls and then “Looool were straight” towards the reader (or OCs)

NO MORE SPANISH, GERMAN, OR BRASILIAN PORTUGUESE TRANSLATORS GUYS
sweet. you’re on the list!
My pet peeve when France just surrenders in Fanfics and has to wait for Allies to rescue him. Keep in mind there was a Free French army stationed in London and a resistance movement in France.

someone’s bound to need it! thank you for offering your services
Fics where outright coldblooded murder is presented in a positive light. When character a kills character b because of shallow reasons, say related to relationships, that’s kinda.. wrong looking. It’s not that I’m against murder fics or violent fics or fics that have killing present, but if said killing was for the most part unwarranted and is shown as a good thing, it really creeps me out. Even more so when the reviewers agree with it becaue then it’s just WTF.?!!?

oh wow that’s actually pretty useful. thank you so much for offering your services!!
haha ok guys i really dont wanna be a douche but i gotta say this
please don’t submit your pet peeve twice to me???? yes i see it and yes i will eventually get to it. it’s ok if you send it twice by accident (like in a row or something) but please dont send the same one a week after you submitted one. it’s REALLY ANNOYING
haha i guess it is disgusting, but that’s actually what happens after you french kiss. i wish there was a euphemism for that phrase though; it really is kind of disgusting to picture.
