Fic: The Moves of Jennifer Steinkamp (Roman, Jenny, Lars, pre-canon)

Happy belated birthday, Momo!! I'm sorry I'm so late - this turned out a wee bit longer than planned. :p

Title: The Moves of Jennifer Steinkamp
Author: [info]aldiara
Fandom/Characters: Alles was zählt; Roman Wild, Jennifer Steinkamp, Lars Berger. PAUL PRADEL PAUL PRADEL PAUL PRADEL. (Shup. His 2-3 mentions totes make him a main character in this. YES THEY DO.)
Word Count: ~13,000
Rating: PG
Summary: This is the story of the second time Roman fell in love, which means, naturally, that this is a story all about Jennifer Charlotte Annabelle Steinkamp.
Disclaimer: The characters of Alles was zählt belong to RTL, more’s the pity.
Author’s Notes: Back when AWZ canon was awesomely layered and generally consistent, there was a wealth of intriguing backstory to explore, including two things that have always nagged at me insistently:
1) Roman has admitted to having been genuinely in love three times (ep356). With Marc and Deniz taking the first and third spot, I’ve always wondered about No. 2 (no, bloody Andrew doesn't count :p).
2) The events unfolding between Jenny and Lars when they first met, and Roman’s extreme insistence that the Steinkamps not hire Lars in the late 500s. Details were required.
Also, those who have watched the early AWZ eps might recognise a certain stunt that Jenny pulled on Diana once. I liked the idea that she might’ve learned it from Roman.
Huge thanks to my wonderful brainthird [info]lilithilien for her super-speedy beta! <333

It's too long for IJ, so...

(Read The Moves of Jennifer Steinkamp at AO3)

And for those who care about such things, this is the piece I had in mind for Jenny's competition music:

Happy Birthday Mirona!

I was going to make you cupcakes, but as it turned out..... )

Hope you have an amazing birthday, darling! I can't wait to meet you IN A MONTH, OMFG YAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!

Big hugs & snogs!

Fanart, crack, HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIL: Stella's Moving Topstory

Happy VERY BELATED BIRTHDAY, [info]lilithilien! Or, you know, random mid-March BECAUSE-YOU-ARE-AWESOME present ;)

Title: The Very Awesome, Serious And Dramatic, Not At All Ridiculous REAL Topstory of 2010!!!!!!
Artist: [info]aldiara
Fandom/Characters: Alles Was Zählt, Stella, Lars, Roman, Deniz, Oliver
Medium: Comic
Rating: PG for upsetting depictions of roadkill
Warnings: Stella. Exclamation mark abuse. Artfail (but who cares about Oliver, right?) DRAMATIC comic EMPHASIS!!!!
Disclaimer: These characters belong to RTL.
Artist's notes: Inspired by's hilariously simplistic summary of Stella's wheelchair ordeal. I meant to colour it, I did. But GIMP fail and laziness prevailed. Just think of it as a comic noir :p

My IJ layout doesn't like the sizing, so here, have a direct cracklink!

Jan. 16th, 2011

Happy (belated, eeek!) birthday, [info]amo_amas_amat!


*smooches* I hope you had a fabulous day anyway! You mentioned how you liked babies in your year-end meme (which I loved reading, btw, I just haven't commented on it yet because of the whole failing at life thing), so I was going to get you a baby cake and kind of already knew before I started google-image-searching it that that was a VERY BAD IDEA, then came away traumatised (srsly, whatever one's opinion about babies may be, they are NOT FOR CUTTING INTO CAKE SLICES), so erm. Yeah.

Have a kiwi cake instead! (Almost as traumatising, yaaaaay!) )

Ficlet for [info]sdk - Happy Birthday!

Dearest Shelly,

I hope you're having an awesome birthday/week/month! Thank you for brightening my life with random stick figure spanking crack, brilliant fandom endeavors like the SEXYs and HoFest, and MUCH MUCH CAPSLOCK AND HYENA CACKLING. AHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH. I LOVE YOU!!!

Title: Exhibit April
Author: [info]aldiara
Fandom/Characters/Pairings: Alles Was Zählt; Roman, Marc, Jenny; RoMarc 1.0
Word Count: 1360
Summary: There are things he'll remember and things that he won't. A quick glimpse at Roman's 20th birthday and the days preceding it.
Warnings: Apparently tissues are needed. (Sorry! will be more thorough in my warning next time.)
Disclaimer: Nothing's mine. Nothing, nothing, nothing.
Author's Notes: For [info]sdk, many happy returns! I apologise for the crap title but I actually got very close to calling this "Some Fic, Okay!", so you know, it could be worse. Thanks to [info]alsha for beta-ing! <3

Happy Birthday [info]geekchick1013!!

Happy Birthday [info]wildepet!!

Happy Birthday dearest Pet! Have a fantastic day full of sparkle and love. AND CAKE!

Fandom/Characters/Pairings: Alles Was Zählt (with a smidgeon of Supernatural crossover); Marian, Etienne cameo; *Jenny/Lars* [highlight for spoilery pairing]
Word Count: 2640
Rating: G
Summary: Marian searches the world for Jenny, but one would be mistaken to regard this as a romantic quest.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to RTL, who labour under the misconception that Marian Öztürk is anything but a moron.
Author's Notes: Happy birthday Pet! (I'm sorry, I tried to write Axel, I really did. It didn't work. BUT YOU WERE JUST DYING FOR SOME HUMILIATED MARIAN, YES? [Hint: The correct answer is YES.]) Thanks to [info]alsha for betaing!

Ficlet for [info]praderwilli - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [info]praderwilli!!!

*smooches* Hope you have a fantastic day, baby!


(Awwww, remember how cute the kidlets were before we turned them into alcoholic slobs? Also, although it's technically my turn to be Liz, because it's your birthday you can be her ALL WEEK. I'll even try not to hit you too much.)

Also, because I can't do vids and I'm shit at graphics, have a sillyfic:

Title: Flimsy Premise: An Audio Track
Author: [info]aldiara
Fandom/Characters: Alles was zählt; Deniz/Roman
Word Count: 1200 words
Rating: PG
Warnings: Mostly dialogue only. AU-ish. Crack.
Summary: Transcript based on an audio-only track recorded by the security system at Steinkamp Sports & Wellness one night, after the cameras had regrettably been sabotaged under mysterious circumstances. Essen's police force is still investigating.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to me. Yes, yes they do. I insist.
A/N: Knocked together in great haste for my darling husband [info]praderwilli's birthday. Unbeta'd, so feel free to point out errors or, you know, STFU about them, either works. I LOVE YOU, WILLI!

Sweetie, I'd totes get you an Android if I could. Alas, all I got is nipples.

Cheerfully going bonkers as usual

I am so way overdue an update and as usual I fail at structure, so I'm going to nab [info]giorgiakerr's basic number format, kk? EVERYONE LOVES NUMBERS.

1. My mini-hiatus thing is over. It was spurred by a completely mad burst of creativity that had me doing nothing but, uh, well, creative stuff for a good two weeks and I couldn't be arsed to have a social life even online. Obsessive Aldi is obsessive. Anyway, I've finished a mural, I've cranked out a short piece of writing, and most importantly, in a bizarre development utterly at odds with all things to do with me and time management, I've finished my HoHoHo Fest assignment early. I KNOW. On the more normal side of things, it needs massive amounts of editing, and since I loathe editing with the fiery power of a thousand suns, I'll probably still find myself the night before the deadline going "OH SHIT OH SHIT I HAVE NOT FIXED ANYTHING AND NOW THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TIME OH SHIT", so all will be as usual, I expect. BUT YES, YES, IT IS STRANGE AND UNSETTLING, I DO NOT GET THINGS DONE ON TIME, WTF. But I am just the tiniest bit chuffed about it. And I hope my giftee (??? is that the proper term for person receiving gift?) will like it. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

2. Summer is here YAYAYAYYAY. I walked all the way to town today (it's about 40 minutes along the bike path, which is an elevated lovely hike through the hills with lots of trees and meadows and yes, sheep) listening to music in the sun and then lazed around on the green near the cathedral and it was glorious. I LOVE SUMMER.

3. One of the rose bushes that I planted about two years ago in the mad and over-optimistic notion that I might actually, you know, take care of them and that I then promptly left to wither and die, has suddenly decided to burst into bloom. The other one would usually come out with maybe... one tiny wee rose a year and I'd be all "o_O LOOK LOOK IT'S A FLOWER! AM MADLY TALENTED NURTURING EARTH MOTHER!" and this one literally hasn't done anything since I planted it other than sit there looking bare and sullen. Over the past months, it's randomly started growing like mad until it reached a freakish height, and right now it's ALL OVER roses as big as both of my hands together. They are dark red velvety and stunningly gorgeous and stunningly fragrant and I'd take a picture if the only camera we currently owned wasn't the one that Alsha's parents sent her for her birthday except then it took three months to arrive and by the time it *did* arrive she was in England so now I think it'd be tacky to play with her present before she gets back and can play with it herself, so there's no picture, just take my word for it, MY ROSES ARE GORGEOUS AND THIS IS EXCITING, OKAY. (wow, that was a tangenty sentence.)

4. Speaking of [info]alsha, yes, she is still gone and appears to be having a whale of a time (bizarre expression, surely). I miiiiiiiiiss her <333333

5. I need to watch my tendency to stick "<333333333333333333"s onto absolutely everything I say, lest it lose its significance, don'tcha know.

6. I am currently only sliiiightly inebriated but plan to be more so later, as I have pretty much been living on a diet of cider and strawberries. Wheeeeeeeee!

7. Was worried about having no work for a while, but I think/hope it's getting back to normal? I think I may have mentioned a time or fifty how vexing the flip-flop between "ARGH DYING UNDER MOUNTAINS OF WORK, CANNOT COPE" and "ARGH, WILL NEVER EVER GET WORK AGAIN AS LONG AS LIVE & PETS WILL STARVE & HOUSE WILL NEED TO BE SOLD & WILL NEED TO LIVE UNDER BRIDGE EXCEPT CANNOT ACTUALLY REMEMBER WHERE NEAREST BRIDGE IS" states of freelance employment is. Why does one not get paid for managing very hard task of, IDK, existing? Bah.

8. Birthday was fabulous explosion of love, including the sparkliest of greetings from Cologne (some of them complete with horrible fake Austrian accents, lololol <333333333333333333333). *squishes marvellous friends*

9. Still in cranky state of disenchantment with Show; on the upside, though, fiercely in love with fabulous canon-fixing fandom *cuddles it*


11. I have a sick craving for watching the Dawson's Creek finale *cackles madly* SHUP, IT TOTALLY MAKES ME CRY.


13. I thiiiiiiink I am caught up with everything I meant to get caught up on IJ and neeeaaarly there on LJ. If there is something that will crumple and die unless it is validated by a comment from me, please yell at me and point me at it!

14. *squishes f-list*

Oct. 19th, 2010

Happy belated birthday, Kate!

Hey gorgeous girl, I'm so sorry I'm late! I'm failing at time-bending lately. I hope you had a marvellous day anyway and got spoilt absolutely silly!

Love you lots!!! <333333333333333333


...and just because it amuses me:


Oct. 13th, 2010

Happy Birthday Amilee!!


Look, it's a heart! And a cake! Simultaneously! And I didn't just pick it because doctors are sick and twisted and entirely too interested in organs (which they are), but because you've got the biggest, most loving, sparkly, warm and generous heart and I love you more than I can say.

I hope you're having a fantastically awesome day and are getting spoiled absolutely rotten!!


Sep. 21st, 2010

Happy Birthday Placebo!!

Hope it's an awesomely sparkly fantastic one! *smooches*


(sorry, I have a genetic inability to associate your real name with you, lol)

Jun. 20th, 2010

Happy Birthday Susan!

Hahahaah, clearly it's the birthday-happy time of year. By rights we should all be lying under the table permanently sloshed! *is, in fact, working on that*

Happy Birthday, lovely!!! I love you're having a wonderful day and that you get spoilt absolutely rotten! :-D


Jun. 10th, 2010

Happy birthday [info]spaghettitoes and [info]haesselmaas!!

So many birthdays lately! Why aren't we all in a permanently drunken stupour? Total oversight, I say!

Dear Christine:

Sadly I lack any graphic or other visually sparkly skills, but I wanted to give you this - it used to be my favourite wallpaper and it reminds me very strongly of you, so:


*hugs tight* I'm so happy I got to meet you in NY and cuddle you in person - you're one of the most wickedly adorable people I know! *snogs lots* HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Dear Sofia:

I've been enjoying your art, hope you keep it up! Et voila, cake!


Have a wonderful birthday!! :-D

May. 30th, 2010

Happy Birthday Inga!!!

I was going to buy you a flat but then 1) I got scared of your ever-increasing horde of wives and concubines, 2) thought you might go all stroppy on me and pitch a fit and I'd have to print flyers to rent it out and stride around all woobie-looking to some heartachingly appropriate song before you finally come to your senses and come bearing roses and snogs and it all sounded like SO MUCH WORK OMG, and 3) realised I'm not a model and don't have any money.

So just have some stolen cake instead, kay? Because I'm classy like that.


(You may take that fish, BUT YOU MAY NOT LEAVE!!!)

Love you, ma chère! Hope you're having a fantastic day!! *squishes you tight and noserubs you until we're both Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer impersonators*

May. 24th, 2010


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FAB!!! *hugs and twirls you around* You're one of the loveliest, most insanely talented people I know, and I was so happy I got to meet you in person this year. LOVE YOU, BB!

Here, have some fic:

Title: Share
Author: [info]aldiara
Fandom/Characters: Alles Was Zählt, Deniz/Roman/Marc (Deniz POV)
Word Count: 1600 words
Warnings: Apparently reading this fic requires multiple vodka shots. (A.k.a. angsty angst is angsty.)
Summary: Deniz knows that they're good at this and getting better, but somehow that doesn't make it easier. Not even a little, not even at all.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything, including my own brain. It was loaned to me by Claudia Bergmann.
A/N: HAPPY BIRTHDAY [info]redcouchaddict!! I was gonna do functional - and possibly happy - threesome fic, but Deniz was like, "Hell no!" and I was like, "Suits me fine, Süßer, I don't do functional anyway - ISSUES YAY!" and, uhm, here, have depressing stuff? LOL.

Deniz has never been very good at sharing. )
