Someone in one of my Harry Potter comms on the other journal just posted this rant about Americanisms in Harry Potter. I don't think it would be so bad, because I do beta my story for things that I know are strictly American or different in England, but they did the rant the day after I posted a story to their affiliated fanfiction community. I can't help but think that it's somehow my fault. -_- Now I'm a little scared to post HP fanfics anywhere. Maybe I should stick to fandoms with American writers.

Oh, BBC World News, BBC-America, and those American - British English sites, the many many ways that you've failed me. I think the only thing worse than being judged by my race is being judged by my Nationality. Or maybe they're equally bad but one just feels worse because I'm so used to the other.

I know that feeling. Shall we mope together about being burdened no matter where we go?
