...and on top of that, it's un-proofread and stream-of-conciousness and probably makes no sense at all. Read at your own peril, and tell me what you think, if you'd like to.

PG for swearwords.

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 )

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. )

Welcome to my writing journal!

The idea behind this is that by posting my writing stuff, be it ideas, snippets, short stories or chapters of a novel, I will gain more motivation to actually write down all the things that are going through my head.

Not all of the entries will make sense to you, the reader. Some will be just me tossing around half-finished ideas, or referencing things only I know about. ...but stick around for the stories!

I'm currently reading "Writing Magic" by Gail Levine (autor of Ella Enchanted), and besides advice, the book features lots of writing excercises, which I intend to do most of. Here's the first.
