[Picture is possibly the best screenshot I’ve ever taken. Russia’s looking confused; to his right (and our left) sit the two Italy brothers, shaking and quaking with fear. To his left (and our right), Belarus’ head is just popping into the frame, glaring at the Italians. Caption reads “Don’t hate the girls for ‘ruining’ your OTPs.”]
I decided this rule would be appropriate after looking at a Hetalia video on YouTube and seeing the comments were filled with Seychelles hate because she ‘gets in the way’ - of OCxEngland and even simply ‘me’xEngland, just because they know one another. The same goes for characters like Belgium and Hungary who’re hated endlessly just for getting in the way of yaoi and even OCxcountry.
News flash for the people out there who let this get to them.
The characters aren’t real. Shocking stuff, I know, but seriously- how can people get so angry about girl characters? They add variety to the cast and are still incredibly small in number in comparison to the men. But, yes, all these characters are just colours and lines and fans get so intense about pairings. Girls are in most shows and books and that’s just a fact.
Also, when did it ever explicitely say something in the anime/manga along the lines of;
"Belgium stopped Russia and America from frolicking amongst the sunflowers."
"Prussia and Cuba were going to get down and dirty but Belarus interfered."
"Austria planned on bumming Canada but Liechtenstein got there first."
Seriously, these girls aren’t a ‘threat’ to the yaoi relations and there’s a lot of need for some fans to calm themselves down- the girls aren’t hurting anyone and weren’t put in place to make your life specifically a misery. Just get used to them! They’re fun, interesting characters!
