International fic authors, I love you. But if you’re writing something that takes place in a setting other than your own home country, PLEASE be aware that things specific to your region may not be specific to others.

THIS. Relatedly, sometimes I wish I lived somewhere less likely to be the setting of a fic. Instead, can I just offer my services as NYC-beta to anyone not familiar with the city?
