The French Mistake is an Attack on Titan Fan Fic written by madisnk, which can be read here.
The fic follows the storyline of the series, with the addition of OC Charlotte Blanc, an addition to the Power Trio of Eren, Armin, and Mikasa and a Love Interest for Eren.
This fic contains examples of the following tropes:
- A Day in the Limelight: Chapter 5 retells Chapter 4 from Eren's point of view rather than Charlotte's.
- Affectionate Nickname: Charlotte is interchangeably referred to as "Char," "Lottie," and "Charlie" by her friends and family.
- Big Eater: In chapter 5, Eren describes Charlotte's love of food as "inhuman."
- French Jerk: Averted; Charlotte may be French, but she's far from a jerk.
- Gratuitous French: After falling off of her bed in Chapter 6, Charlotte curses "Putain enfer!" in pain. The writer states that it means "fucking hell," according to Google Translate.
- Love Interest: Charlotte serves as one to Eren.
- Meaningful Name: The fic is titled "The French Mistake" in part because Charlotte is of French descent.
- Tap on the Head: Averted; when Eren bashes his head on the ground during 3DMG practice, Charlotte, Mikasa, and Armin fear he may have suffered brain damage. In the next scene, his head has been wrapped in bandages.
