Summary: After a catastrophic event, there's really only one thing to do - clean up and move on. But some pieces of the puzzle are still missing.
Author's notes: On with the show! Another post-explosion story. Find out what was in Hahn's lab, and why it has people worried...

It was almost like standing inside a cave, or the mouth of a giant mythical dragon... )

Summary: A confrontation in a subway station brings out the worst, and the best, in people
Author's notes: Apparently, my non-fanfic muse has taken a vacation to Hawaii or something. Anyway, I decided to lure her back by going over old stuff, and at least got a postcard. This story was originally written pre-RATS, but I upon re-reading, I wasn't quite happy with it. The characterization was a bit off, the ending wasn't even really there etc. So here's the revised, edited, now with a brand new and better ending! version. (Also, Mods: please slap me if this doesn't count for the challenges! Not sure on the rule for that.)

The moviegoers spilled out of the brightness of the cinema and into the softly lit streets... )

Author's notes: This one's a follow-up to this, so read it first to get a hint of the background. Otto Hahn is a pioneer of radiochemistry.

It's complete and utter destruction )

Summary: Dee and Irene spend an afternoon in the park.
Author's notes: Total fluff, with a bit of character background for good measure ;). The Tiergarten is, contrary to what the name (animal-garden) might imply, not a zoo, but Berlin's largest park.

Poodles and commies and ice cream, oh my! )

Summary: For some people, the Great War will never be over
Author's Note: From Wikipedia: "In World War I, shell shock was considered a psychiatric illness resulting from injury to the nerves during combat. The horrors of trench warfare meant that about 10% of the fighting soldiers were killed (compared to 4.5% during World War II) and the total proportion of troops who became casualties (killed or wounded) was 56%. (...) The large proportion of World War I veterans in the European population meant that the symptoms were common to the culture."

Dee did not need to look at the date on today‚Äôs paper to know that the anniversary was approaching )

Summary: Dee is not what people think he is at first glance. But can you really blame people for their first impressions?
Author's Note: This probably should've been my first installment, because you need to have read it to understand some stuff about Dee. Though, of course, people not knowing is also a lot of fun ;). Anyway, as far as AU details go, the Rhenish Republic actually took off and still exists in the 1940s as part of the also still existing Weimar Republic. Lots of industry there (mainly steel and coal), and it's a melting pot of French and German culture.

Passions are inflamed, but not in a good way )

Summary: Dee does some late-night, and rather futile, airplane tinkering. Irene thinks they should rather be boozing.

Airplanes and grease monkeys )
sermocinare: (There are other worlds...)
Since chatting with a friend some time ago, I've had this world, and this character, running around in my head. Yeah, my plotbunnies tend to be monsterous *g*.
The setting is an alternate history steampunk version of Germany in the 40s. There's been no stock market crash, no financial crisis, and no nazis, either. Well, all right, there are nazis, but they're just one party of many. Germany's still a Republic, and like it was in the roaring 20s, it's a hotbed of culture, science and also a bit of decadence. All right, in this timeline, more than a bit of decadence. A glittering, shiny, never-ending party with a dark underbelly of crime, blackmail and corruption. With airships and Tesla coils.
The main character is Diana "Dee" Hohenheim (FMA fans may snicker now), a genderconfused-to-transsexual professional rich kid in his 20s with a brilliant mind, a firey temper, an interest in science and engineering and way too much interest in other people's business.
It's looking like this will be the setting for my NaNoWriMo novel this year. And even if not, it should be good for some interesting storylines.

So, without much further ado, here's the first slice of Dee and his world:

PG for swearing and people being close-minded thugs. Oh, and a gun, but it doesn't get fired. )
