I started out writing German fanfiction, but that didn’t turn out so well due to a lack of audience. At some point I started to write in English and although my English was good, it wasn’t good enough yet for fanfiction and developing my current style of writing took nearly two years. Only now I can say that I’m satisfied with my writing.
I'm visiting the twelfth grade in a Gymnasium, although you would call it visiting the fourth year of high school. I'm something like a senior. People also always ask me what the hell a Gymnasium is, so here's something from Wikipedia since I'm too lazy to explain:
"A gymnasium is a type of school providing secondary education in some parts of Europe, comparable to English grammar schools or sixth from colleges and U.S. college preparatory high schools. The gymnasium prepares pupils to enter a university for advanced academic study."
So, that's about it.
I have awhere I mainly post things related to K-Pop that I find hilarious or… fangirl-worthy, but also other funny tumblr posts. On my I mainly upload speeddraws and coloring processes and on I upload my own art or covers for my stories.
Weird Facts about me:
• I am probably one of the only persons on this planet, wearing his watch on his right wrist (I'm weird)
Something that annoys me to no end: When people don't write summaries
Guys, don't be lazy and just write I'm really bad at summaries, so just read. Personally, I never read stories like that, cause I don't bother to read the story of some lazy-ass. Seriously, it doesn't even take that much for a summary! Even if it's just a quote from the story or just a small sentence about what happens, that would be enough! Jeez, don't be so lazy!

Stereotypes about Germany:
All Germans are blond and wear Lederhosen. Typical things for Germans are sheepdogs and Sauerkraut. They love their Volkstänze, especially after they had some beers and Bratwurst. When they had enough beer and bratwurst, they say hard words like Rucksack, Krankenbett and Sauerkraut.
Didn't they used to have that wall in Germany? And also their Autobahn. But they definitely never had any humor, but plenty much discipline. And sheepdogs. And Sauerkraut. And German cars of course, with which they drive to work, to build even more German cars.
That's mostly not true.
Not all Germans are blond. I (naturally) have brown hair for example, but if it weren't for my American father, then I maybe would have dark-blond hair, inherited from my German mother. It's true that there are many blond people here – mostly dark-blond though – but only about 10% of the German population. Also, there are about 2% red-haired people in Germany and the rest (about 88%) has dark hair. I'm pretty sure that half of the people who have blond hair here dyed their hair. Natural blondes are still 10%.
Things like Lederhosen, Dirndel and Volkstänze are common in southern parts of Germany, for example Bavaria, and only on special occassions. It's not like Bavarians always wear lederhosen or dirndel and personally, I think I will never ever even touch a dirndel.
Also, though almost all Germans drink beer and eat bratwurst, it's not like we don't eat or drink anything else. I personally hate sauerkraut and I don't know anyone who eats it regularly and also likes it. Here in Berlin we eat stuff like Currywurst, Döner and pizza and of course we also eat non-German things that are healthy.
Many people of course have sheepdogs, since they're most common here, but old people often have doxies or other small dogs. You'll basically find any type of dog in Germany.
And I know a lot of Germans who have humor and I think I have humor too – though I might be imagining it. We do have many comedians, you know. People like Bülent Ceylan, Rene Marek, Mario Barth (he's from Berlin too) and Michael "Bully" Herbig.
Many Germans drive German cars, that's true too, but of course not all of them. Some Germans drive British, French or Japanese cars.
If you ask a German for his favorite sport, most of them would say soccer. Germans are total soccer-maniacs. Not all of them, but many. During world cup every single German on this planet turns into a soccer maniac.
The wall we had is called Berliner Mauer and once seperated West Berlin from East Germany, including East Berlin. It went right through Berlin and fell twenty years ago in 1989, when Germany reunited. Even today, twenty years after the wall fell, there are still differences between West and East Berlin. For example: people from west Berlin were called Wessies and people from east Berlin Ossies. But because the younger generation of Berlin didn't witness the seperation, including me, it doesn't really notice the difference.
And just so you know: Hitler is dead and we don't have any nazism here since 1945. We have democracy now and can vote after we reach the age of eightteen, where we're officially adults. And I'm pretty sure that German people have the most deepest hate against Adolf Hitler.
I tell you this, since it once happened to a friend of mine that someone from the U.S. actually asked her If Hitler is still rueling Germany and we once discussed that in school. I always had the opinion that American people knew that not all Germans are Nazis, that Hitler's dead and that we have democracy, but everyone in my class disagreed and explained what they've experienced when they told foreigners they were Germans. One of them told us that when she said they were Germans, while on vacation, some guy made the Hitler-Gruß which is really rude and offending.
I have made my fair share of experience as well, being called racist for no reason other than being German. By Americans. Although I'm half American myself. Why thanks a lot!
About Berliner like me:
We Berliner are famous for our dialect – though mine isn't that heavy. We call it the Berliner Schnauze which means something like Berlin muzzle, because it sounds somewhat crude to many people. There is a German saying that the typical Berliner is a good-hearted big mouth (i.e. = people with a slight attitude problem). Imagine a grumpy ol' guy cursing at people in a café cause the waitress is too happy. That's your typical Berliner, although they have become rare nowadays.
