Hey guys! Since my exams are over but I do need to write a paper until mid-August I will try to go back to that old study method I tried out some time ago which hopefully will allow me to write as well. Do you have any requests or preferences which of my fics I should focus on writing first? If so let me know x

It can be any of my fics, including the one from my second acc, even if they are on hold atm or have a set schedule (like for example if everyone wants to read Witching Hour and I focus on that I might end up putting chapters up earlier if that makes sense?). The only exception would be Castle as it is already completely written :)

To any of my followers/readers who aren't German or live in Germany: how does/did your school (or country in general) cover German history (esp since the late 19. century)? Are you even covering any German history? Without any knowledge I'd assume that something that would be covered is WWII but in what an extend? Simply the "basics" (for lack of a better term) and then the development of the war from the perspective of your respective country? Are you covering the German history after the end of WII - like, for example, in regards to the dividing of Germany and/or Berlin? How are you covering WWI and the events leading up to it (for example in Germany we also cover a lot of Bismarck and his politics as well)?
          
          I'm currently studying for my last exam on Wednesday which is basically for an Introductionary class into the "newest history" (literally translated) and coveres the time from around 1815 to the present from a German point of view (so it's very German/Europe centric) and this question came to me and I found it actually really interesting to think about how history classes in different countries would approach this so I thought I'd ask in case anyone on here is interested in history as well!

@apollomooney completely forgot to reply after my exam, sorry <3 
            
            And I think the connection with Luther as someone from Germany to your country is so fascinating (or generelly just the effects and connections like this in history) and I also suppose it makes a lot of sense to learn history that directly has an effect on your region/culture/etc, like Luther, aside from like the "big main events" (if that makes sense?) and I think that's what a lot of classes do unless you specifically look at something else, for example in a course at university.
            
            WWI and WWII were in the timeframe the course I wrote my exam for yesterday had as a topic and I don't think Iceland was mentioned once at all in it, so I find that aspect interesting as well. When it comes to economy during the wars we only thematise the main European countries aside from Germany that were directly involved in the events, and it's not much, mainly in connection to the wars (like how the economy affected the war for example when Germany's economy was directed towards the war and wasn't able to sustain the people at home anymore during WWI) and I don't think it ever mentioned if anyone might have had another course or consequence from the wars, like Iceland with selling fish.

@lotusqueens I think the main reason we learned so much about Martin Luther is because  lutheranism is the main religion in Iceland and it has a big history here and on how we reformed from paganism to christianity, and with WWII we are the only country to call WWII the ‘blessed war’ because we made so much money selling fish. The only history that we learn about other countries here besides ancient history are the ones that have had a direct influence on our history and culture

@apollomooney ohh that's really interesting! I've honestly never thought about Martin Luther in an international perspective if I'm being honest. We focus only on the German aspect of Luther and his direct effects and in terms of other countries all we might cover as well is England and the beginnings of the Anglican Church and that's it (at least at my school and university so far).
            
            And I am German (and also studying in Germany I suppose) :)

@palaeontology I've been working on the idea since winter (I think early I first wrote down plot points this year around Jan/Feb?) but upload? I think I did around the time when the Loki show began so about the first week of June maybe? And then I re-published it after taking it down for a few days but with everything still being the same

I am emerging from my rabbit hope called university for 5 minutes for a lil announcement: This weekend's scheduled updates of set&pre-written are up! It's Chp. 2 of Black Sea and the Prologue of Chasing Stars. Next update will be Chp. 1 of Chasing Stars on Wednesday (aka the day of my last exam and the day I finally get some more free time). Again, thank you all so much for you patience and for supporting my stories. I'd love it if you'd check out the new chapters and maybe leave a comment <3
          
          Also I may or may not be bringing back Star Wars fics and may or may not be adding a murder plot to G&M. We'll see.........

I hope everyone is doing well. Since I have my last 3 exams in the next eight days, I have decided to take a complete hiatus from writing, etc. until they're over. That means, unless I have prewritten&set a schedule for a fic (most namely Black Sea and Chasing Stars should it return until then) there won't be any updates from me. 
          
          I hope you guys understand and I'll see you soon.
          
          Love, Lena

@17idk_ Hey! I unpublished it as I am quite busy with exams for the next 1 1/2 weeks (and only updating those books I have a set schedule and enough prewritten chapters for until they are over), so I'm hoping to pre-write a bit while it's drafted if I get the time. It shouldn't be down for too long though and I hope to bring it back once my exams are over at the latest!
