movie // avengers // natasha


I just realized that I'm probably going to need a Brit beta for this monstrosity. Not for the whole thing, necessarily, because I've managed to keep the main action all in the US this time (yeah, I'm an insulated, xenophobic American; deal with it), but I do have a British character who becomes important in the back half of the story. And I don't want to unwittingly make her sound American, but I don't want to go the other way and drop in an excessive number of bloodys and brilliants and blimeys and whatnot. Not to mention I don't want to have her call things names that are not what she would call them. You know, pick-ups being lorries, etc.
  • Current Mood: hungry hungry
For Heaven's sake, don't let her drink iced tea; my British friends almost came over and hung me just for liking it myself.
Well, it's sweet tea that I like, but what seems to horrify them is the idea of it being cold! It's a cool country; they like their hot tea.
That they do. I'd take iced tea over hot tea any day of the week... the only time I drink the hot stuff is when I'm sick.
Sometimes I like hot tea during the winter, but other than that I'm with you.
Thanks :) I'm not even close to finishing this beast, but I'll let you know :)

ETA: ooh, but you know what would be super-helpful now? Some common-for-Brits curse words. Nothing especially vulgar, but also nothing you would really want to say in front of Grandmother :D
