Have to share!

sallymn posted a great article in her journal and I'm shamelessly stealing it.

It's called Why the German Language has so many Great Words and it is a work of art (it takes a while for the page to build, but stick with it).

Examples -

Sitzpinkler: a man who pees sitting down.

Verschlimmbesserung: an intended improvement that makes things worse.

Backpfeifengesicht: a face that invites a slap.

For anyone who loves words, this is a fun and interesting article.

Thanks, sallymn for starting my day off with a laugh.

A new MFU-movie tale

Title: But a Kiss is Just a Kiss
Genre: N/I
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 986

Illya has stressed time and time again to not be touched when he's sleeping. Napoleon is not the sort of man who takes things like that lying down. My thanks to Sara and Sparky955 for their beta help and kind advice.

Illya Kuryakin was running. He always seemed to be running in his dreams. Whether it was away from or towards something, it never mattered. He always ran. There were often guns, and sirens, flashing lights and the heavy whop whop of a helicopter’s blades. This time there were dogs. He hated dogs.

Illya ran, desperate to escape, he thought, but it was hard to tell in dreams. He just knew he had to be somewhere else. And Napoleon was somewhere, close, he hoped.
