What nationality are you?
What is your native language? (If English, please specify which country as well.)
If you are not British, do you have your HP fanfics Brit-picked?
If you are British, does it annoy, startle, or otherwise interrupt your reading to come across cultural or linguistic oddities in fics?
If you have your fics Brit-picked, why?
If you DON'T have your stories Brit-picked, why not?
Since you started participating (or observing) fandom, has your communication with people from various countries affected the way you speak, write, or go about your daily life? (Do you use different slang words? Do you misspell words like color/colour or realize/realise? Do you understand more of the content in foreign films?) Please comment!
( An additional bit about Brit-pickingCollapse )
On the side, what would you call American-picking? The term American-picking is clunky!
"Excuse me, Natt, would you mind giving me a good, thorough Yank-spank?"
"I mean my fic!" *flushes*
