semi "friends-only"

darksiders: archon

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...

de_bingo: Leuchtturm. Ein Fanmix

hornblower: sunset Indy
Damit ich für das Bingo in dieser Runde überhaupt noch was schaffe, gibt es heute einen Mix. :D

Titel: Light At The End Of The World
Fandom: Generell/Age of Sail
Prompt: Leuchtturm
Medium: Fanmix

Beschreibung: Ein Mix aus meinen Lieblingsstücken, die Sehnsucht nach verregneten Küsten schaffen. Die meisten Stücke enthalten folkige Elemente, bis auf ein Stück sind aber keine Traditionals enthalten (okay, 2 Stücke, aber das eine ist stark genug verfremdet, das zählt nicht!)


Die Cover wurden erstellt aus einem Stockphoto von AustriaAngloAlliance @deviantart.
