    Summary

    Just some meta-griping which will clearly win me no friends, and probably confirm a few enemies, but I've got to put it somewhere and Tumblr doesn't feel like the place. Yes, I am an awful human being, as if there were any doubt as to that. (And I will probably delete this anyway when it ends up offending someone.)

    Summary

    In an obscure Institute run by an evil Professor (the personification of all that is unwholesome in society, who ingeniously controls the ruins of civilisation) a mysterious one-armed Visionary, chained like a madman in the cellar, holds the key to The Island which will save the world.

    Inspired by repeated watching of the Uli M Schueppel film (available online here). I found myself absolutely captivated by the mysterious and otherworldly atmosphere of the film to the point of obsession. (Not to mention, Blixa Bargeld chained half-naked in a cellar.) I found myself trying to write in and around the events of the film. A mistranslation (my German is not the greatest) of a character insisting that there is "no time" spiralled out into a science-fiction fantasy of what would happen in a world that was literally without time?

    You don't need to have seen the film to understand the story - readers have said it stands on its own.

    Content notes: false imprisonment, murder and passing reference to torture, (consensual) sex with someone in chains, childbirth and pregnancy, bathing.

    Summary

    1981. You've been kicked out of your school, your home, your country, for being queer; and your family have banished you to live with a distant relation in West Berlin in disgrace. But in the shelter of The Wall: rent is cheap and squatting is free; drugs are plentiful; sex of every kind is readily available; and everyone you know is forming absolutely amazing experimental bands, making Super-8 films and creating fantastic art.

    This story is basically fan fiction of 'B-Movie: Lust and Sound in Berlin' universe. Featuring appearances from: Einstürzende Neubauten, Mania D / Malaria!, Die Tödliche Doris, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Die Haut, The Birthday Party and many more.

    Relationship notes: This story is not intended as Slash and if you're just looking for Nixa, you will be sorely disappointed. The primary relationship involves two complex genderqueer artists, and I am deliberately centring the women and the historically queer people in the West Berlin scene.

    Content notes: story contains no AO3 warning content, but does contain heavy drug abuse, sex work, homophobic violence, violence against women, and other content I will CN for on relevant chapters.
