Subject:Cry for Help...Brit Picking Anyone?
Time:08:09 am
Let me just state the obvious here...

I am an American!

The amount of pride I have in the statement varies depending on which political party is currently holding sway, but the important thing to take away from that statement is that I am *not* British.  What I know of the Brits and their language foibles is limited to what I've seen on BBC America and old repeats of Monty Python and Fawlty Towers.  That, of course, is in line with how the aliens in Galaxy Quest learned about Earth culture, and I'm sure my limitations are very close to theirs.  I am painfully aware of this, and while I may know that a sweater is called a jumper in England and a cell phone is a mobile, there is plenty that I do not know, even with the help of the ever trustworthy (i.e., not very) Google. Which brings me to my current delimma...

In my foolishness, and out of unmitigated fannish love, I have just completed a 35k word fic in the Sherlock (BBC) fandom.  It is slash (but technically the first 30k words could be considered preslash) and I am looking for someone of the British persuasion who could be...well, persuaded to Brit Pick it apart for me. So if you would be interested in reading the fic and telling me how wrong I am in my word choice and also telling me what the correct choice would be (that's the critical part), please let me know.

Thanks!

Not offering to Brit pick, as I'm American, too, but just wanted to say, "OMG, YAY YOU'RE WRITING SHERLOCK!!!!!"

*Cough*

Anyway, looking forward to what you've created!

We poor Americans will just have to depend on the kidness of our British sisters in fandom to help us in these situations. *G* And I hope the fic lives up to your excitement (new fandoms always make me nervous, and of course I couldn't stop with a simple little ficlet for my first. sigh)

I hope to have it posted later today/tonight. So check back soon....
