Also, for those of you who've been inquiring, noooooo, the fic's not dead, it just got caught up in the hiatus as well. More to come soon!
I don't really know if I'll do a trip report about Cologne, since as per usual the Not Authorised To Disclose That Information clause applies all over the place. So I will just stick to two things:
1) Ania Niedieck is one of the most adorable people I have ever met; and
2) WE MET COITAL THEFT GUY! That is probably the thing I am most excited about for the entire two weeks I spent in Cologne, lol! He and his boyfriend (who is also adorbs) joined us over coffee on one of our last days there and DUDE. He is SO NICE. And fun and smart and lovely and holy fuck, gorgeous. I love him to bits. *fangirls madly*
I don't really know how to end this so have a picture of Dr. Oliver taking drugs.
Hi, I'm not dead! (I think.) I kind of failed at the Internet thing since coming back from Germany, for various reasons - I had some RL stuff to sort out (won't bore you with the details; in essence: I need to find a pot of gold already, because I am SO over being poor), plus it's winter here and cooooooold so I've been doing my damnedest to turn into a human hedgehog, i.e. hibernate and pretend the world doesn't exist if you just curl up and squeeze your eyes shut, plus I was feeling generally maudlin and would not have been good company anyway. I know, I owe people emails/comments/tweets/other electronic signs of life. I plan to be more sociable any day now!
