    Summary

    Steve Rogers is a struggling artist. It's not as romantic as it sounds.

    What Steve really wants is a job as a session musician. He can play enough instruments that he could make a decent amount of money doing it, but in New York there are just too many talented musicians and not enough jobs to go around. So he takes jobs in hipster bars, hotel lobbies, at weddings and bar mitzvahs and office parties.

    If he gets one more request for Let it Go, he swears he'll find it within himself to punch a child.

    He lives in a tiny, shitty apartment with Sam, who was his sort-of-boyfriend for a few weeks until he decided Steve's very domestic relationship goals weren't for him. They're still pretty much best friends, luckily for Steve, because when the regular pianist at Sam's dance company runs away to Canada he's recommended his roommate and got him the job before Steve even knows about it.

    Dancers. Steve's going to have to spend his days with dancers. Great.

    Summary

    In response to being asked to Brit-pick various fan-fics (as well as reading certain Americanisms over and over again) I have put together a basic guide to Brit-picking your fics. It also explains some common cultural differences, and gives a list of your more basic swear-words.

    In other words it should be everything you need to Brit-pick your own work.

    That said, I HAVE DEFINITELY LEFT THINGS OUT, so if anyone notices an omission or has a question then please place let me know. The idea is to for this to be a resource for any writer writing a British character.

    Enjoy!

    Summary

    There are some great quick guides to HTML on A03. This is not one of them - it is a comprehensive guide, dividing all of the available tags into the following categories:

    1. Text Formatting (in-line HTML)
    2. Page Formatting (block HTML)
    3. Tables and Lists
    4. Links and Images

    Each tag will have - at a minimum - a link to the w3schools page about it (so you can learn more), a code example, and the result of the code example.

    It will also introduce tag attributes, ways to further refine formatting, for a few simple - but widely applicable - cases.
