Author has written 7 stories for Titanic.
First: A big thank you to everyone reviewing my stories or putting them on as favorites etc.!
Second: Of course this is fanfiction, so I wouldn't dream of claiming any of the characters made up by some other regisseur already.
Third: Any similarity between living persons (I mean really living!) with the main characters of my stories are just a coincidence - really I swear :-)

About my stories:
I've written seven stories for Titanic so far. Here they're lined up in alphabetical order:
A long long time ago I can still remember - These are the first words of Don McLean's American Pie. This is no actual story, but simply contains different parodies of Titanic stories. This one is currently uncompleted.
As if - The title is taken from a Hungarian poem by Jozsef Attila called Tedd a kézed (Move/lay your hand).
Flirtatiousness - This title is a translation from German "Liebelei", a novel by Arthur Schnitzler. There's also a nice film about it (Christine) staring Alain Delon and Romy Schneider, if you're interested. I know there exists a French and German version.
Masquerade - This time the title is a clue to what happens in the story.
Monkeyshines - A present time story about Rose's family. The family has lost their money and is forced to adjust to a new situation.
The Hostage - The story is uncompleted so far. The title is taken from Friedrich Schiller's Bürgschaft (a guarantee in English, though it doesn't contain the same meaning as in German), the famous poem about Mörus, who wants to kill the tyrant Dionysius and ends up saving his friend.
The right is next to where the reward is - Here Cal is actually the victim, while Rose is wanting revenge. It's set after the great depression in 1932 and is taking place in Jack's hometown Chippewa Falls. Based off of Friedrich Dürrenmatt's "Der Besuch der alten Dame." Not for Jack and Rose fans. Title graphics will soon follow.
About my title graphics:
I recently discovered how much fun it is to make these. It really gives the story something special.
The main pictures are obtained through Google and afterwards edited by me. Hopefully you like them :-)
About getting reviews:
Like every author I'd love to know, if my stories are liked and what I can do to improve them. Please remember: Reviews are not everything, sure, but without reviews people, like me, will think that their stories are not read and finally retire (the traffic stats sheets are simply not the same).
Sadly many people don't review, but put up a Favorite story alert etc. While I of course find that one nice as well, I think reviews are even nicer.
Honestly: It takes a few seconds to write a review. Still it makes me and other authors happy, even if you just write "I like it."
Please take this into consideration.
Oh and everyone, who claims that he's writing just for himself and doesn't care about reviews is lying. It's a bit like saying that the appearance of one's boyfriend isn't important.
If liberty means anything at all it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. (George Orwell - The Freedom of the Press)
Herr, die Not ist groß. Die Geister, die ich rief, wie werd ich nun sie wieder los? (Goethe/Der Zauberlehrling)
Ich bin ein Teil von jener Kraft, die stets das Böse will und stets das Gute schafft. (Goethe/Faust I)
"'Is it Thou? Thou?' but receiving no answer, he adds at once. 'Don't answer, be silent. What canst Thou say, indeed? I know too well what Thou wouldst say. And Thou hast no right to add anything to what Thou hadst said of old. Why, then, art Thou come to hinder us? For Thou hast come to hinder us, and Thou knowest that. But dost thou know what will be to-morrow? I know not who Thou art and care not to know whether it is Thou or only a semblance of Him, but to-morrow I shall condemn Thee and burn Thee at the stake as the worst of heretics. And the very people who have to-day kissed Thy feet, to-morrow at the faintest sign from me will rush to heap up the embers of Thy fire. Knowest Thou that? Yes, maybe Thou knowest it,' he added with thoughtful penetration, never for a moment taking his eyes off the Prisoner." - (FMD - The Grand Inquisitor)
Eifersucht ist Leidenschaft, die mit Eifer sucht, was Leiden schafft. (Franz Grillparzer)
Erst kommt das Fressen, dann kommt die Moral. (Bert Brecht/Die Dreigroschenoper)
"Hatred is just like wine; it improves with age." (Ashton Main Huntoon/North and South Book II)
When all the company had eaten and drunk and were merry, the old King gave the waiting-woman a question to answer, as to what such an one deserved, who had deceived her masters in such and such a manner, telling the whole story, and ending by asking, “Now, what doom does such an one deserve?” “No better than this,” answered the false bride, “that she be put naked into a cask, studded inside with sharp nails, and be dragged along in it by two white horses from street to street, until she be dead.” “Thou hast spoken thy own doom,” said the old King, “as thou hast said, so shall it be done.” (Brothers Grimm - The goose girl)
(Benjamin Franklin Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759)

Sagt ein Schwein zum anderen: "Du ich hab gehört, daß der Bauer uns nur deswegen so gut füttert, weil er uns danach kochen, braten und essen will." Darauf das andere Schwein: "Ach, Unsinn. Oder glaubst du etwa auch an diese ganzen Verschwörungstheorien?" (No idea who wrote this)
"Winston, if I were your wife, I'd put poison in your coffee." "Nancy, if I were your husband, I'd drink it." (Most likely never happened - supposed dialogue between Winston Churchill and Nancy Astor)

From Lyrics.com - Falco - Titanic:
Sieht man um sich, was passiert,
Let's deca-dance in jedem Fall,
Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ganz allanig - aber fesch
In jedem Fall entscheid' ich mich, egal,
Let's deca-dance at all events,
Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ...
The unsinkable Titanic
Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ... Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ganz allanig (rep till fade)
