    Summary

    Writing a Teen Wolf fic where Derek takes this bloke Stiles to see a film in the cinema before taking him back to his flat to meet his mum? Writing a Sherlock fic where Sherlock meets John at college while studying for a big test so they both get good grades?

    If so, you need this Britspeak to Amerispeak directory. I hope to keep adding to it, so feel free to put any instances in the comments that I'm missing so far. This is meant to be GENERAL advice, obviously there will be exceptions, but if you're a Brit writing American characters or an American writing British characters, take a cruise through and see if there are any word usage or spelling errors you might have made! I tagged the fandoms I'm in, but of course it could be helpful to any American or British fandom.

    Note: I am American, born and raised, and have lived in almost every part of this country. Feel free to add your comments and suggestions, but if you start it with "Actually, Americans would never..." just know that I am laughing at you right now.

    Summary

    “What’s your name? I can’t keep calling you Balto.”

    “What’s yours?”

    “Stiles.”

    Derek raises an eyebrow. That isn’t his real name. There’s no way. But now he thinks about it, he has a vague memory of someone, probably Uncle Peter, telling him that with the fae, names have power. “I’m Miguel,” he says.

    “Lie.”

    “Are you trying to tell me your real name is Stiles?”

    Stiles runs his tongue across his teeth and considers Derek carefully. “Fair enough,” he says, “Miguel it is.”

    Grabbing his groceries and pocketing the change, Derek turns to leave; he’s nearly at the door when Stiles calls out, “By the way, Miguel, if you’re interested, it’s two for one on bags of kibble at the pet store down the street.”

    Derek doesn’t look back, doesn’t hesitate, just raises a hand and flips him off on the way out.

    Summary

    In the summer between high school and college, when most people get to be lazy and hang onto the last remnants of their childhood, Stiles is training to become the Hale Pack emissary (as soon as he can bully Derek into accepting him), supervising Pack training... and trying to figure out why so many people are acting so weird.

    It's probably nothing.

    Right?
