We are not the people we were before, we changed, and we can continue to change. Sure this fandom has done many horrible things in its early years and honestly I wasn’t even in the fandom at that point in time, and the point is some actions were plain wrong, we know, but it’s honestly disheartening.
Please, please, I’m calling out to the true fans who cares about this fandom I learned to call my family, let’s prove that we can do good, prove them wrong for the things they still think about us. I’ve met more real people than I could ever meet in the real world. Please, I’m begging you, don’t let this fandom die, don’t let them degrade us, prove that we are good people with good intentions, that we can be real mature people who can contribute to society. Make them see what I see, a fandom that welcomes all people no matter what age or race.
Please share the word.
((I am tagging people who made me see that hetalia isn’t as bad as people say, please help me get the word around.
@hetafacts for getting the truth around the fandom and keeping it alive.
@urufu-arts for being brave enough to stand up and make a fundraiser for the victims of the Hurricane Harvey.
While not paying attention to my actual teacher I starting thinking about what Hetalia characters would be like as teachers, this is what I came up with…
Germany - Angry math teacher who everyone is terrified of on the first day. Very strict about attendance and completing homework. He works everyone hard though cause he wants them to succeed.
Italy - Super laid back art teacher who had questionable pictures of half naked women all over the room. Brings food for the class like every Friday and inspires kids to peruse art.
Japan - Culinary teacher, very calm and reasonable but always puts way too much salt in the recipes.
Romano - Dance teacher, just picture it. (I don’t know if Dance is actually a class you can take but shhhh pretend)
Austria - Music teacher, no one else really has him except the band and music kids, but to them he’s a role model and they all love him. He plays for every school assembly.
Hungary - Health teacher who wanted to be gym teacher and is salty about not being gym teacher but still very fun
Spain - Kind of obvious but Spanish teacher. Very laid back and all the girls take his class cause they think he’s hot. He connects well with the students though and often helps them with personal problems.
Prussia - German teacher, since he has the same last name as Germany they all get really scared thinking its him, but then Prussia rolls into class on his wheely chair and sunglasses. He’s a weird and crazy teacher who everyone either hates or loves.
France - French teacher, very passionate about his language and gets into arguments with England over which is better. Shows the class like a billion French songs and Romance movies dubbed in French. Always comments when students are talking about their relationships.
England - Grouchy, closet alcoholic English teacher who everyone thinks is boring at first but he gets really into his classes and gets into debates with students over wether Shakespeare is necessary to learn or not. Everyone’s favourite teacher to make fun of.
America - Gym teacher, really fun and everyone loves him but he accidentally works them way too hard. Plays dodgeball every second day and gets way too into it. Makes fun of every teacher behind their back to make his students laugh.
Canada - Nerdy computer science teacher who’s always forgotten at staff meetings. (Idk what it is with me and Canada being a computer nerd) every one calls him to fix their computer every time it glitches out. Sometimes Canada and America will teach each other’s classes and know nothing about it but have lots of fun.
Poland - Drama teacher, I just really want Poland to be the flamboyant drama teacher who teaches students how to be themselves up on stage and loves shy kids and seeing them express themselves through acting.
Lithuania - Another English teacher, very calm and nice but always comes to class looking slightly drained, no one knows what’s wrong with him.
Estonia - Another Math teacher that everyone hopes to get instead of Germany, he used to be the computer science teacher so he’s pretty techy and does cool stuff while showing notes in class.
Russia - Guidance councillor who everyone’s afraid to go see and he doesn’t understand why.
Ukraine - Biology teacher who loves when students are enthusiastic about Biology and accidentally knocks stuff over. Is also way to easy going about dissecting and it freaks people out.
Denmark - Crazy chemistry teacher with the crazy hair, his hair is a school joke as everyone is trying to figure out just what hair gel he uses.
Norway - Physics teacher who has a feud with Denmark over which science is better. People fall asleep in his class a lot since he’s so monotone but he doesn’t understand what they’re talking about when they point it out to him.
China - History teacher who gets way too into the lessons and unconsciously acts stuff out. Strict rules about completing work on time.
My teacher taught us that during Operation Husky where they invaded Italy (under Nazi control after the hanging of Mussolini), Canadian soldiers fought door to door combat with the Germans so that they can save the houses and leave them intact for when the Italians came back to their houses. Although Canadian casualties were extremely heavy, the Italians were very thankful.
American soldiers on the other hand, bombed the buildings where the Germans were hiding in and although they left with very little casualties and dealt a lot of damage to the Germans, the Italians were pissed to come back and see their houses turned to rubble.
