semi "friends-only"

Welcome.

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...

Random, part VII - The libido awakens.

I actually managed to continue this sporking within a month, for once! Aren't you all happy? ;)

In case you need a refresher about what's going on, here's where you find all previous parts in this series:

Part I        Part II
Part III        Part IV
Part V        Part VI


Get ready for part VII, in which Bert the Friendly Pirate fails ship anatomy forever: Read more...Collapse )
bbc_musketeers is voting on the specifics about a potential rewatch of the entire series (series 1 + series 2) to tide us over until series 3 gets aired. Now's your chance to vote when this rewatch is going down and make suggestions on how it should be going down.

Seeing how series 3 looks likely to be the last series of the show, this might be one of the last occasions to get together a sizeable group for an event like this, so let's make it a good one!

bbc_musketeers is a very friendly, relaxed comm, open to all kinds of fan activity (fics, vids, meta, icons, etc) and previous group watch events have been magical.

Books read in 2016Collapse )

Reading roundup + games

First, the books:

My reading list is here, complete with links to goodreads and all.

For various reasons I read less this year than in the last couple of years, which is a bit disappointing, but there've been worse years. Hopefully things will pick up again in 2016 or 2017.

Even worse, most of what I read this year were re-reads (mainly Discworld and Geralt-saga), which is why I'm not going to do the usual end of year meme I did for the past couple of years and will simply point out a few highlights (and lowlights) instead. (In general though, any book I re-read this year was great!)

best books and worst books + books I"m looking forward toCollapse )




And now the games, including one I've never talked about before: don"t worry, there"s only a couple of themCollapse )

Random, part VI

Remember that I used to make these entries? I didn't until like a week ago! :D

In my defence, even when I still remembered this was going, I wasn't in a hurry to get to the chapter in which the actual sexual abuse starts. But now that tumblr has reminded me of this gem of a novel, I felt like giving this another shot.

For those who joined us since the last entry (so, since September 2014 basically, oops!) and are wondering what the hell this is, in this series of entries we look at the historical romance novel Ransom by Lee Rowan, which revealed itself to be rather shoddily researched p2p fanfic of the Hornblower (tv movies) fandom featuring purply prose, a love for woobie fanfic tropes scraped from the bottom of the sea biscuit barrel, and dialogue so corny that it wouldn't be too out of place in a porn movie.


Here's where you find the older entries:

Part I
Part II
Part III
Part IV
Part V



Because it's been so long I have prepared a summary of everything that happened so far and then some:

the charactersCollapse )

If you read the last part, you can probably tell that this part is going to be less fun than anything that came before.


new chaptersCollapse )

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 )
