Heello there, I come bearing historical fic! Title:
The Royal We (Part 1/?)Author: alistaereRating:
PG-13 for swearingCharacter(s)/Pairing(s):
EUROPEAN HISTORY and random Dutch swears. Also rain is cruise control for angstSummary:
Days before the Belgian Revolution begins, Belgium and Netherlands discuss the French revolutions, which eventually leads to an argument between the two nations. Yep, I am a total pro at this summary business.
Jan and Margot are my headcanon names for Netherlands and Belgium respectively.
Dutch ~lingo~: Verdomme means damn, while verdomme het means dammit. Zus is short for zuster, meaning sister. I'm not Dutch by any means, so I am basically going off Google Translate and other websites for this information :'3c
Also, I'd like to preface this with the disclaimer that I am not a history buff /at all/, nor am I any sort of Dutch or Belgian, lol. I did a ridiculous amount of research for this fic before, during, and even after writing it, though, and I tried my best to be as historically accurate as possible, but I apologize to any Dutch or Belgians out there if I unintentionally fucked up your history in any way, haha. I pretty much have never written a historical fic before, so this was definitely a learning experience.
Also also, the title and lyrics at the beginning of the story are from the song "The Royal We" by Silversun Pickups.( The fakest cut of them all! )
