"NO, HUMAN! I KEES YOU FIRST." -smooch, slap slap slap-
That cat has a majestic mustache.
fun fact: “nolo” is latin for “do not want” so if someone says yolo you can say nolo and they’ll think its just a stupid comeback but in all actuality you’re speaking latin which is classy as shit so haha the jokes on them
NOW ENDORSED BY A BONA FIDE LATIN TEACHER WHO USES THIS ALL THE DAMN TIME.
”nolo” also means ”embarrassing” in finnish.
Agreeing to make couple OCs with someone but neither of you are allowed to show your OCs to each other until they are ready and now those two are going to get together and they must work it out no matter what
let’s do it
Well, a British accent doesn’t exist first of all, so that’s my first piece of advice to you.
Other than that, I would highly recommend looking at accent challenges on YouTube to hear a variety of English and Welsh accents. I Google searched ‘tumblr accent challenge welsh’ and a whole bunch of videos popped up. You could do the same for the English part. Hearing them for yourself is the best course of action to take, imo.
Otherwise, links because there is already a lot out there on accents and I don’t think I could make any useful contribution to it all.

I hope some of this helps…! Best of luck.
writing a story where the female characters are tomboys who just reject femininity in favour of masculinity doesn’t make feminist fiction or good female representation
aggressively rejecting femininity in your narrative just teaches girls to think femininity is weak
When I was little I loved glitter and dresses. Loved. LOVED. You don’t understand. If it was sparkly or glittery I WANTED IT.
Some point, somewhere down the line I realized that girly feminine things were weak, uncool, sissy, not strong, just like- awful things. Girly girls weren’t main characters or heroes, and the best you could hope to be was a super tough tomboy who at least got promoted to sidekick and rolled her eyes at anything weak like sparkles or feminine stuff and everyone loved way more than that boring shallow girly girl.
So I had to ditch everything to be a cool tough girl, the only girl worth being, because all that sparkly girly stuff was for weak, vapid girls and I didn’t want to be that. And I was pretty miserable about it! It sucked! It sucks not being able to like the things you like!
Now I’m a grown up and I have two bottles of glitter nail polish at my desk and am slowly collecting dresses again to be courageous enough to wear. Because surprise surprise, you can have bows and tons of makeup and glitter and also wear kickass stompin’ boots for kickin ass! I just want every girl growing up to know you can have as many bows as you want in your hair and rub your face in glitter if you feel like it (But don’t get that shit in your eyes) and then you can still go out and conquer the world.
Another reason why the magical girl genre will always be my favorite genre.
