After all of the things [ profile] linndecher has told me about this, I have to see it. And hey, if it inspres Nazi porn, then I'm all on board (oh God. What has Basterds done to my brain???)

Thank you so much for the links, hon. :D

Please do, and write some. Tell me if the dl doesn't work.
I think the entire IB fandom should watch the series, and write Basterds/Moments x-overs. Because guuuuuh Nazi porn... and the series' main pairing is S/S XD I really shouldn't lol about it.
*bounce* Do you think I could advertise it in the comms?

Well, I can tell you that the first link worked (I'm downlaoding and watching one part a night, so I won't know about the rest until later).

and the series' main pairing is S/S
Hee. Don't worry, I lol'd when I read that.

As for posting the links over at the comms, I'm not sure. You might be able to at [ profile] iheartcinemaah, but I'm not all that confident, and I'm even less confident about the others. I'm currently in the process of wondering whether I'll post Love in Thoughts fic over at [ profile] operation_kino, just because people who write for larger fandoms that feature members of the Basterds cast may want to post there as well.

Maybe you could do a comparative picspam, or something that shows the wonders of Stierlitz/Hellstrom, and then link to this post in that post. That way, you'll attract people with the pictures, and want to download it more. But that's just a suggestion. :)

S/S is love

I miiiight just manage with operation_kino, if I bribe the mod I know irl with some RPS ;-)) Maybe. Hm, maybe a comparative picspam of smoking porn? The things this man does with his cigarettes and matches.... Yep, I could do that, soon as I figure out the technology bits. Got any good suggestions as per screen-captioning software?
And be sure to tell me how you like it so far - I've got nobody to squee about it with except Linndechir (who is well and truly converted and initiated but busy with university stuff) and, well, my dad. Can't squee to him about the slash, though. Not only will he disown me - he will simply cry. I won't rape my daddy's childhood. Can't do it to him. (But seriously, he fanboys Stierlitz as hard as my pink fangirlsquee-icon. When he learned I was in hospital two years ago, and called me, his first words were not "omg my child how are you" but "omfg squee squee you are in the same hospital as Cat from 17 moments omfg how awesome!" No kidding. The Charité is one hell of a pretty hospital though, I'll grant that. And running around Berlin recognizing this or that building is fun, too...)
I keep tempting Linn to write Stierlitz/Hellstrom, and she's swaying... but she's an old review-whore, no offense meant, and will only write it if people review it and fangirl along, alas...

NGH, smoking picspams. One of my favourite weaknesses. As for screencapping software, I tend to use either VLC player, which is good for single caps, but not so good for capping one frame after another. I tend to use either PowerDVD or Nero Showtime time. However, if you don't want to download anything, you can always use your print screen key, even though it is a lot more time consuming to do it that way.

I haven't watched the first part yet, as I got distracted by zombies, but it's my list of things to do tonight, and after I watch ot I'll definitely let you know what I think. :) And yes, I know what you mean about dads not understanding the slash. My dad, for example, loves Hot Fuzz, but would be more than a little disconcerted if he was exposed to the slashy truth subtext about Nicholas Angel and Danny Butterman. ;p

And if I see the Stierlitz/Hellstrom, and I like what I see, then chances are likely that I'll be writing it. ;)

Spreading the corruption...I mean squee

For a while now I've been seriously considering setting up a community for historical RPF - details in this post ( - but the last similar comm failed spectacularly (possibly because it was slash only?). I may as well expand it to smaller fiction fandoms of the same era.
After all, there's no such thing as too much SD/SS porn!

I wish the caption had been fully displayed - it says "Go on. Aren't we being honest here?"!

Silly Russian servers are a little slow, though. I might mirror it on once I get the full copy. I'm really enjoying what I've watched so far - when I'm not stopping to screencap Sterlitz being slashy with everything male that moves.

WAHAHA they are not subtle, are they?
Oh, and a mirror would be great! Let me know so I can update my post with the links.
Glad to hear people outside Commieland are enjoying it too. It is awesome. How, underneath that self-righteous narrator, you can just see the eye-rolls. They couldn't very well go out and say: oh, the Gestapo is just like our guys at home, aren't they? But it's implied, right there. That's why the Nazis are such nice affable chaps here. Them speaking Russian contributes to the message, too.
Aaaaaah *flail* And then there's this: It's arguably one of the slashiest scenes in the source material. The author of the Stierlitz novels wrote the screenplay himself, y'see, and this...... well. I kid you not. I did not add the slashy stuff. Cross my heart, it was written that way.

Glad you liked it :) *snickers* They definitely did not aim for subtlety. And now I just want to research what the norm for male affection was, in Soviet Era Russia! Along with how homosexuality was considered, too.

You can definitely see the eye-rolls, indeed! It's like "we have to put a tank here, and here, and blow up lots of buildings, just to shut the censors up".

Oh, is that where [ profile] linndechir's inspiration for the Schallenberg/Heiydrich fic came from? How delightful! That fic is scorching, but strangely tender.

I need some WW2 icons, badly :)

Are you still Russian, or already gay?

Yep. I squeed to her about the scene, translated it, and she wrote fic for it. I loved it too, somehow, but pssssst ;) I also have written one, set in 1930, it's in gamma stage, read: me being too cowardly to post it. Not even because of the quality of writing, but well, it's Nazi Slash. *aherm*
And you're quite right, the tank shots/building explosions shots are documentary footage, and they were inserted after the censors griped that the film didn't show enough heroism of the Sowjet people or whatever - fact is, they added them post-production, and they weren't planned.
Hm, male affection - there is certainly loads of it, is what I can say. I have grown up in a post-Sowjet country, and both men and women, if they are family OR close friends, are indeed very VERY touchy-feely, compared to Germany anyway. Homosexuals weren't actively pursued either - it simply wasn't talked about. So, if you saw two men kissing, and there was no obvious tongue-involvement, you'd think "friends". Nobody looked twice at men cuddling, either, particularly in war-times. There was no restriction, like, "you shouldn't do that, that could be perceived as gay", simply because, as far as people were concerned, homosexuality did not exist. Or, if you saw a guy sitting on a park bench and knitting, you'd think less of his masculinity, and maybe frown, but you wouldn't think he has sex with other men.
Bit like that...

sorry for the late reply, real life being pesky.
I'll try to get stuff up on megaupload as soon as I can... until then, I heard there might be files with English subtitles on russian torrent sites, which are pretty ad-heavy :(
I'll try to upload as soon as possible, but - well, real life being BAD now. Just remind me. SORRY :((((
How'd you like it so far? Is Schellenberg gay? IS HE? ^^
