Help I need a Brit! I need help Britishizing my story. It involves and alternate universe where WWI never ended. I have posted in SYW if anyone is interested. I could use help polishing my male lead who needs to be the epitome of an English gentleman of that era. Thank you for your interest!

am female and maybe a bit modern... but if that's ok I'll give it a whirl?

Emmyshimmy could you give us a link please? (I'm too lazy to go and look, sorry!) Also, have you heard of/seen Downton Abbey? Set at the moment during WWI and has characters from the Upper to the lower classes.

Watch Downton Abbey. Not only will it be helpful, but you can have a good ogle at Dan Stevens and his amazing-yet-freaky pale eyes...

Or you could watch Poirot/Miss Marple - a bit later on (20s/30s) but lots of young gentlemen, even if quite a few are murderers.

Emmy, I think this is a more appropriate place to ask for a crit than Story Research.

Thank you Cath, sorry for misplacing it :/

Has anyone had a chance to look at my work? How can I make my lead into more of a British gentleman?
