Help! I know I saw someone on AO3 had bookmarked an essay of 500 things Americans mess up writing Sherlock - or some title of that nature.

Can anybody link me to that essay, or something similar.

Series: Part 1 of Brit-pick tips for Sherlock

These differences between British and American terminology and culture below are all ones I have seen in Sherlock fic or that are likely to come up in Sherlock fic. It is not exhaustive and I know that I will think of or spot at least 10 more as soon as I post this, but it is a start. If you have read fic set in America written by a Brit you will know that these things jar and spoil the flow quite a lot, so here you go.


This one?

:D It's a cool article, too! I'm reading the Stella Rimington Liz Carlyle books and finding myself occasionally stymied by a common language.... ;)
