semi "friends-only"


Since most of my entries are f-locked by now, I thought I might as well put up an "official" friends only sign.

however, graphics posts will remain public entries.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

If you want to be added, just send a message (PM) or simply comment.

please note:

if you decide to friend me, it'd be lovely if you could leave a note telling me why you're friending me, otherwise I'll just assume you're here for icons (which is great, too! :D) and not friend you back.
Icon-posts will never be friends-locked.

I filter most of my German entries. If I know German's your first language I will automatically add you to the respective friends group. If that is not the case but you want to be on that filter, let me know. ♥

The Big Resources Entry + Tags & Navigation

icon resourcesCollapse )

the icon posts became a bit unwieldy, so I went way back (yes, even back to the old, very early, even more crappy icon posts. :D Imageshack has slowly started eating those, though*. Thank you, imageshack, thank you) and added new tags.

*I could delete them, but isn't half the fun watching how skills develop and taste changes? That's what old shames are for...


some Musketeers graphics

I haven't iconned in ages (maybe I should do a 100x100 challenge again?), but I have tumblr graphics?

Fandom-Weihnachtswichteln auf Deutsch

Bin vermutlich nicht dabei, aber vielleicht hat's ja jemand auf meiner Flist noch nicht gesehen und würde gerne einen Wunschzettel posten:

Remember this movie I cried about because it looked like I wouldn't be able to see it?

The movie is Michiel de Ruyter - its international title is Admiral - and no, it's still not playing anywhere I could reasonably watch it on the big screen, but it's out on DVD by now (not in my country though, of course)! And I managed to import a copy! From the UK! :DD

and this DVD case is the just greatest thing!Collapse )
Contains SpoilersCollapse )

So, in that vein, here's some wishes for series 3:

And that's it. Sounds doable, right?

The Musketeers 02x08, "The Prodigal Father"

Well, that was underwhelming.

(Don't worry, I'm not hating ... everything. It's just long. I simply, unreasonably expected more from the long since promised big episode about my favourite musketeer.)

Beware of SpoilersCollapse )

Btw. I'm still intending to write that young!Treville + de Foix + Belgard fic (with maybe a side helping of ill-advised disaster ship Trevilieu) about them being the proto-three-musketeers. But I'm unsure about how to handle Belgard now. Writing him as majorily a douche would be too simplistic, but then again this is fandom, and writing a character (even pre-canon) who [did what he did]did something as horrible as Belgard did to a servant - who might or might not have been still enslaved at the time? I think the "no slave on French soil" thing was a later thing? Or am I mixing things up and it would have been a thing at the time the show takes place but got revoked by "our" Louis' son/Louis XIV? - and one he got pregnant too, whether there were feelings involved or not (I'm guessing "not" btw)! as even somewhat sympathetic might only ignite people's righteous anger.
