    Summary

    A middle-aged music journalist, having gone to Germany to ghost-write Ralf Hütter's biography, finds herself drawn into the internal intrigues of Klingklang Studios. As creative intimacy turns to emotional intimacy, finally she embarks on an affair with the reclusive Kraftwerk founder.

    As the pair become more and more closely involved, it becomes harder to hide their infidelity from colleagues, and eventually from his family. Desperate matters ensue.

    Major content warning for Stalking and Online Harassment on this story. These incidents are based on real-life events, and may be intensely triggering for some readers.

    Summary

    If you're looking for Part 2, it has temporarily gone here.

    A middle-aged music journalist and life-long Kraftwerk fan writes a series of essays which attract the attention of the band's reclusive founder, Ralf Hütter. A meeting leads to interviews, which lead to an invitation to ghostwrite the autobiography that Hütter has been trying to write since 1989. The writer is drawn first into the workings of the band, on tour and at the new Klingklang studios, then, slowly, as creative and emotional intimacy deepen, a more personal relationship.

    Since I had some concerns about the themes of this work, I have decided to split it into two. Part One is a cute, slightly fluffy tale of fandom and being a little starstruck turning into something more. It can be read as a simple romance, two imperfect older people falling in love. If you wish, you can leave the characters to live happily ever after. Or, if you have grown interested in the characters and wish to know what happens to them, you can continue on to Part Two, which will continue on and delve into darker territory.

    A post was calling for someone to write #24 but someone else beat me to it.

    Anyway. We need some fluff.

    Summary

    Jan DeLay, a young English art student with an intense interest in early computing, arrives in Düsseldorf in 1970 for a year's study abroad. A chance meeting in the computer lab of her school introduces her to the exciting new experimental electronic band known as Power Station. Quickly, Jan and her friends are drawn into the vibrant cultural scene of Kosmische music, art, architecture and design swirling around the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie, the Robert Schumann Conservatory, and Joseph Beuys' Creamcheese Club in the early 70s. Many of these people would go on to change the world, but this is their (highly imagined) adventures as art students.

    Features guest appearances from not just Kraftwerk, but NEU!, Cluster, Can and many other "Krautrock" bands of the period.

    Note: I have put a non-con warning on this because of some highly dubious dub-con that appears in the story, because sexual mores which were common in the 70s and 80s have very much changed. The bulk of this story is not sexual, it is focused mostly on characters and relationships, musical and romantic. I will put warnings on individual chapters.

    Summary

    “Pocket Calculator” is a rare case of an openly major song by Kraftwerk. The song is overtly childish in its gleefulness, and so is the story of its creation. In this story, I wanted to (re)create the atmosphere of this playful childishness. What I ended up with is an almost “curtain fic”: the Kraftwerk guys go shopping on Christmas Eve and... weirdness ensues.

    Summary

    In 1968, Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider-Esleben were just two young kids, barely out of their teens, meeting for the first time at a summer course in improvisation at the Akademie Remscheid.

    All great partnerships have to start somewhere, but this one started with two shy outsiders who found one another, and fell in love through music.

    Summary

    Karl knows exactly how to get Wolfgang in bed with him when Emil isn’t home. Not that Wolfgang needs much convincing.

    Originally titiled "Gasping is an important detail" because someone once said to me "imagine Karl gasping" and here we are.

    Summary

    Ralf Hütter shares an anonymous encounter with a mysterious woman on a sleeper train hurtling through Eastern Europe.

    Inspired by this tiny smile from the Trans Europe Express video...

     

     

    ...and Tangerine Dream, of course.

    This was a challenge to write some pure Ralf Hütter smut. If you just want the sex, skip to Chapter 2. If you want the characters and the situation set-up, read Chapter 1 first.

    Summary

    To make “Autobahn” Kraftwerk taped the sounds of cars on the motorway. What if they used the same creative method on “Mitternacht”, the other – and pretty scary – track from their breakthrough 1974 album? Pure speculation.
