Back when I was in high school, I couldn't write very well due to this peculiar problem I had: I couldn't stand writing peoples' names. Don't ask me why, but I just could not do it. I remember I once had an emotional breakdown while writing a school paper because I couldn't write the name of the person my paper was about.
Idk when exactly I got over this issue, but apparently some part of it still remains.
Because I just. Cannot. Bring myself. To write out. HRE's full name. As a character name. It's just too weird! I can't do it! For some reason, I can write "Italy did this, Italy did that" and not have it feel weird, but I can't write "HRE said this, HRE said that".
Why do you have to have such a ridiculous name, you stupid non-empire?
