So, I'm having a fic brit-picked. I need to write the Doctor out in space or in America. Why do I keep having these ideas set in England? And worse, rural England? Not that Little Hodcombe looks especially rural. It seems to qualify as a village in the 80s, and is probably more populous now. But I don't have the sense of the language of a native. Even watching media depictions is not going to help, because it's like people in Los Angeles making shows about the South. You end up with the Dukes of Hazzard. I'm sure similar things happen in England. So: I have to move to the North of England and immerse myself in the culture so my English idiom can be perfected.
Say, maybe I could meet Christopher Eccleston in person. You think? Because if I live in the North of England and he lives in the North of England, we're practically neighbors, right?
Okay, maybe not. I wonder if there are British fans writing fanfic that needs American picking. Maybe in the Buffy fandom.
