Twelfth Night in BerlinTwelfth Night in Berlin - A Rammstein Fanfiction
Pairing: Olli/Schneider-ish. Till also crossdresses.
An urban comedy of errors, showing the pitfalls of overly analytical behaviour. Also Till is a crossdresser.
And yes, there is a Shakespeare refence. It might help you figure out what happens in it. :3
May or may not be influenced by 'Pussy' and 'Mein Herz Brennt'.
Warnings: Olli/Schneider in ways that you might expect and then some, a Till who crossdresses and moonlights as a drag queen, bears no resemblance to real life, tastelessness, blasphemy, wild Berlin nightlife, Midori cocktails, absurdism, and particularly cramped U-Bahns. Nobody dies.
"Zug nach Alexanderplatz… Einsteigen, bitte!" there is a pause lasting for about six seconds, then the train doors begin to slide shut, the people on the platform stepping back respectfully. "Zurückbleiben, bitte!" the female voice over the announcement says, and the train begins to

"Touché." Dimentio laughed, his voice almost kind and angelic, but Mr. L took no notice. The jester began to drift along with the man, his mindless smile annoying the other to no end: "What happened? Did they wreck your precious robot again? Nearly ended up in the Underwhere, hmm?"
Mr. L quietly ground his teeth. "No." He managed, his fists clenching slowly. "And I would appreciate it, Dimentio, if you could leave me alone."
Dimentio laughed again. "As you wish, Mr. L... You just keep on saying that..." With that, and a chuckle, he floated away into the corridors of the castle.
Mr. L entered his chamber and shut the door behind him, enveloping himself in welcoming darkness. Today had not been the best day ever. He stared blan

Let's face it, you learn a lot through life. Mistakes are lessons too, of course, you learn the best from mistakes.
But really. You'd rather learn without the pain, wouldn't you?
One hundred vignettes of six lives woven into a single story. Till POV throughout - mostly. This is as of June 2012 the darkest thing I've written and is honestly not for the faint of heart; I won't pretend that this isn't offensive. If you don't like death, for one (out of everything else discussed), this fic is not for you. Contains a lot of concepts and incidents that will make you feel uncomfortable. Proceed with caution and read all warnings.
Warnings: Till/Richard, meta concepts, slash, depressing content, political overtones in some, possibly unsavory depictions of real-life people within the families of the band (although not to children), severe angst, screwy formatting, heavy German usage at parts, possibly confus

Reading 'Silence' would be a good idea before this one; but even if you don't, it's specifically written so that it can be enjoyed as a simple Till/Richard romance. But I would recommend it so the full impact gets through.
The department store is busy as always, even in the height of a Berlin midsummer; young girls in skirts and tight tops and men wearing shorts are everywhere to be found amidst the bustling crowd. And yet it is not a disruptive kind of liveliness; no one is fighting over goods or talking in an overtly loud voice, and the food courts are only half-full, people going about their business in a brisk and efficient manner.
It is this kind of crowded atmosphere that Richard Kruspe has sorely missed during his time in New York. "Danke," he says to a vendor who's just sold him a plain, but particularly nice Café frappé; he sips at the coffee as he

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard
"I need you, Till! Come to Berlin with me."
This is the seventh day that Richard has tried to persuade Dietrich Lindemann to be the singer for their new band. Except that he shouldn't be called that because he hates the name 'Dietrich' and prefers to be called 'Till' instead, and the fact that he's not at all an easy person to persuade in those matters. Richard supposes that it was a bit surprising for Till as well; he did kind of spring the news onto the older man without much warning, and he never really gave the man much time to think about it. It's fair enough that he's being hesitant.
But Richard needs to be fair on himself as well. And he justifies this with the fact that his discovery of Till's vocal talent is a very recent development, and that he needs to persuade the older man because he truly does not want that voice being wasted on nothing. He has other ideas
If you write like this, I hate you. (Part 01)A Guide to (Rammstein) Fanfiction by KimbkIf you write like this, I hate you. (Part 01)3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
A guide to avoiding the general traps of fanfiction writing combined with examining some tropes present in the Rammstein fandom, presented by Kimbk, with examples involving lots of slash. Why, it has so much slash, it might as well be a fanfiction itself.
Warnings: The title is somewhat misleading; while I will be pointing out badly done tropes, only a few are so unforgivable to genuinely incite hatred from me. Still might be offensive in some ways. Contains shoelaces. Not intended to be a personal attack. If you recognize your own fanfic tropes here, rest assured that you are not the only one because I write from experience.
I've been writing for eight years as of July 2012. For something I started just to improve my English (it being my second language, and I wasn't the best English speaker back when I was eleven), I ended up going pretty damn overboard. I've switched fandoms a lot of times,

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard
No one can understand it. It just starts up without any real reason as to why. Richard and Till are alone in their hired flat that morning; Paul and Flake are out shopping for some liquor, Olli is in the gym, and Schneider is God knows where. The important thing is that the guitarist is the first one to be treated to Till's sudden silence. They are all actually in fairly good terms at this particular moment, which has been the exception rather than the rule in recent times; no songs or new material has come of it yet, but they're certainly hoping for it, which makes what happens next at least twice as cruel.
"Morning," he greets Till when he wakes up. The singer is sitting in the main room, staring at the blank TV screen. He doesn't look at nor respond to Richard; he's not too surprised by this, so he moves past Till and makes a cup of strong morning coffee. He

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard
His brief fit of madness is over, and Richard leaves the bathroom feeling even more depressed than before. The others still appear to be in the kitchen, so he walks straight across the hallway without much thought - and stops dead in his tracks to see the door to his room wide open.
He quickly rushes inside, seeing only an empty bed. Till's jacket and boots are also gone, but the bedsheets still have the faint imprint of his body on it, along with a heavily crumpled section on one side of the bed. There's no reason for any of the band members to have physically carried him out again. Richard can only deduce that the singer left by himself while he was having his shower, and loudly utters a heartfelt 'Scheiße!' at the thought of how he could have talked to him if not for his abysmal timing. He quickly p

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard
Till carries on not talking while the rest of the band carry on practicing their instruments. There are no vocals provided to balance them out, but they can at least try to improve their skills while they're at it. Might as well; they're all resigned to the thought that Till isn't going to come around until after the concert, although they don't say it out loud. They've trusted the older man far too long for that, and this courtesy is the least they can give him at this state. At least it's just the rehearsal and it's also a Sunday, so only about half of the crew will turn up - it's not going to be a huge-scale disaster.
It's the day before the rehearsal is due to take place; the clock is showing seven-fifty in the evening and Till has locked himself back in his room for an early night. They all know that he'll be out and about in the odd hours of the morning, though, getting some

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard
It is half-past one when Richard awakes in a warm bed, very much not dead and very much with company. He's been dried off completely, dressed in cotton pajamas, and when he squints a little and reaches out half-consciously, trying to regain his bearings, his hand is suddenly gripped by another and he gasps out in surprise. He can't immediately see what's going on and this makes him panic, his eyes haven't adjusted to the dimness of the room yet - whoever is keeping him company, though, seems to realize this. The mattress creaks and shifts a little as the other sits up and reaches towards the bedside desk; there's the sound of fumbling around before the desk lamp is flickered on and Richard winces and closes his eyes at the sudden brightness.
It doesn't take long, however, for him to slowly open them again - seeing that he's in Till's room, and the man is ly

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard
"-All right, my princess. Sleep well, and daddy's going to call again soon, okay? Gute Nacht."
Richard blows a kiss into the phone and disconnects the call, feeling considerably uplifted. It's something ridiculous like four in the morning in Berlin, but he's not tired at all. He lights up a cigarette as he walks to the car, stopping in front of it as he inhales and exhales the smoke; without smoking the rest, he then takes the cigarette out of his mouth and bends down to crush it out on the sidewalk, tossing it into a nearby bin before opening the driver's seat and getting inside.
A get-together with all the members of the band for the first time in about six months. Richard's very much looking forward to it, especially because he hasn't really seen anyone except for Paul in a while. They'll be spending three days together in Flake's house, jus

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard, some vaguely implied Till/Flake (as part of their act)
Richard sits by himself by a windowsill in his house and grins at his own reflection on the glass. 'Sehnsucht' has been getting rave reviews from Germany and abroad, along with stirring up a fine load of controversy in the wake, and he couldn't be happier. That is exactly what the band revels in, not counting all the accusations about Nazism that they've gotten; those, they've all laughed off publicly. Perhaps they can respond to those so-called critics and their misaimed white supremacist fans in the next album, calling them out both for being so ignorant and close-minded. It'd certainly be very satisfying.
Nearly five years on, and the guitarist can't exactly believe their success even now. Fame has found them all so suddenly that they're still not sure how to react to it. But they've been managing well, not

Pairing: Gradual Till/Richard
Till's advice to Richard never gets the opportunity to materialize. The guitarist knows that it was valid advice at the very least, because it's probably come from Till's own experiences, but it doesn't help him in the slightest because he's alienated Caron entirely. She's unhappy with the way things are, and they fight without either of them caring or even stopping for a second to ask: what are they even achieving with all of their arguments? The answer is nothing, and they both know it, but neither of them do anything about the matter. Richard feels empty about the whole thing and occasionally what Till said comes to mind, but he always manages to push it away because he's so convinced that he's in the right. So is Caron, unfortunately, and they both know that they won't agree on anything anymore, but neither of them care much about working it out. Rammstein come

After his ultimatum, Till starts making slow mental preparations to take in as much as he can before he either makes it up the summit or dies trying. And the first thing that he notices is the fact that Schneider's been providing him with almost constant care, as evidenced when he wake up alongside Till with swollen eyes and a tired expression - despite the singer telling him that perhaps he should get more sleep, he shakes his head and immediately gets to checking the bandages.

"Careful, Risch." Till smiled, keeping his arm wrapped around Richard's waist as they stumbled back toward their flat from their endeavors of the evening.
"We're almost home."
"Carry me?" Richard was pouting, leaning heavily against the singer and looping his arms around the top of his left shoulder to drape across his chest.
"Aren't you a bit too old for that?" The singer sighed at the look he was receiving from the younger man, shaking his head, "Oh, you're positively wretched. Alright. Come here."
Richard's face lit up as he gleefully leapt into his arms, wrapping his own around Till's shoulders before he settled down and kept still.
Till stumbled briefly, laughing at the eagerness of his lead guitarist before playfully hefting him up, "I've spoiled you."
"That's your own fault."
"I know." Till smiled as Richard put his head down against his chest, the spikes of his black hair tickling under his chin from the slight rocking motion every step made. The walk ba
