Germany!

I love German book fairs.

Every single one I've been to has been PACKED, and while that does tend to slow things down as you're trying to walk from one gigantic hall to the other, you really don't mind all that much. All these people crammed in around you are book-lovers, for god's sake. How annoyed can you actually be?

Over the weekend, I was at TWO German book fairs. The first one was in Cologne, on Friday evening, and I was up on stage with Rainer, the actor who does the German audiobooks, and Margarete, the translator. We've been doing this together for a few years now, so we're all quite comfortable with the process. The main difference between events in Germany and events everywhere else (apart from the need for a translator) is the emphasis put on the audio book. Rainer is as integral to the show as I am, and his readings make up half of our time on stage. The event in Cologne went wonderfully, and we had a really receptive audience, and I even spotted some familiar faces in the queue.

Once I'd finished signing, we went back to our hotel, where we had a very nice meal attended by the weirdest waiters I've ever encountered. One was tall, one was short, and they looked so alike that I started to suspect that they were the rejects from a batch of clones some mad professor had concocted in a dark and dingy lab. They were both wearing ill-fitting suits, both had the same type of glasses, and they both stood around and stared into space in the corners of the room while we were waiting to place our orders. So incredibly ODD.

Thankfully, we managed to escape the restaurant before they could kill us and harvest our organs to replace their own failing ones, and I got to my room and got into bed and put my head on the most deadly pillow the world has ever known. It was so big and so soft that when I put my head onto it, the whole thing folded up on either side and tried to suffocate me.

Convinced that the clone waiters were hovering outside my door, waiting for me to die, I slept without a pillow that night. I also slept sideways, because the double bed I'd been given was, in actual fact, two single beds pushed together, and I kept slipping down between them. Who knows what was waiting for me if I had slipped all the way? Scorpions? Tarantulas? Really lazy ninjas? Or maybe just a hole in the floor and a twisting slide that would deliver me to the mad professor's Experimentation Table of Doom?

I survived the night. Barely.

The next morning, we got a train to Frankfurt and then a plane to Leipzig. No attempts on my life were made during this time.

Leipzig Book Fair is half book festival and half comic convention. There are all these people dressed as Manga characters roaming around, chatting on their phones, browsing book shelves. Also, all of Germany had had a pretty bad winter, and there was piles of snow everywhere and it was pretty damn cold— and in the middle of it all you have these really cute German girls walking around in bizarre costumes that don't really cover a whole lot. They must have been FREEZING.

We did our first event, and although we only had a half an hour, it went very well. Such a huge crowd. The signing went on forever, and it was so cool seeing that many people wanting me to scrawl my signature over whatever they had.

The moment we were finished there we got in a car and drove to a graveyard. Because that's what you do once night falls, obviously.

We went to a huge sarcophagus-type place and we yapped in front of 200 people, doing our best to ignore the deep hole behind us with the old coffin. So just an average Saturday night, then...

Once that was done with, we went to dinner with a bunch of other people, including American author Maggie Stiefvater, and I sat at a big table with a bunch of people speaking German all around me. Best night EVER! Well, not quite. But Maggie is a funny lady.

Then I got back to my hotel. This time, my bed was a proper double bed, but the waiters had obviously followed me from Cologne because those damn pillows tried to drown my head again.

Sunday was my last day there. It was also Saint Patrick's Day.

(That's St PADDY'S Day, in its shortened version. Not St PATTY'S Day, as some Americans insist on calling it...)

I had an interview to do in the morning, and then I had two hours off before my event, so I went wandering through the halls. It was all so incredibly strange, and wonderfully so. It made me wish that Irish book festivals were like this. Imagine if The Mountains to the Sea festival had hundreds of teenagers walking around dressed as characters from comics and books. That would ROCK.

We did our event, signed for an enormous amount of people, and then I was whisked off to the airport to catch my first flight. I arrived back to my front door a little under eight hours later, tired but happy to be home, and looking forward to spending a night with my head on a pillow that doesn't try to kill me.

The teacher should love it!! It's awesome!!

Charisma Thorne said...

Dear Bloglandians.

Welcome to les deds de l'Charisma Thorne.

So.
Le first ded goes to ... Skuttlebugia!!
Skuttlebugia, if you do not know about it, is a plan to invade Australia. And populate it with Skuttlebugs. And Luciana is writing a fic about it! (And If she sees this she must get it published. Yes. And Charisus is my OTP.)

I ded to all the people I've met here. All the people I've never met, the people I'm going to meet.
You're all crazy as a box of frogs, but I love you all.

I ded to MAHU, because, you know, it's MAHU.

I ded to AVPM, AVPS and AVPSY,because they are all supermegafoxyawesomehot! And hello to all the Potterheads, and especially any fellow Ravenclaws!

I ded to Victor Hugo, as without him there would be no Les Miserables. And without Les Mis I would have nothing much to do in my life. I ded to all the Amis de L'ABC. Especialy Coufeyrac, Combeferre and Enjolras. And Joly. And Bahorel and actually I LOVE YOU ALL.

I ded to Ramin Karimloo, Aaron Tveit, Eddie Redmayne, llamas, Fra Fee, George Blagden and Hadley Fraser. And litetaly all musical theatre people everywhere.

I also ded to the fact that you can be anything. Anything you want, and don't let people stop you going for it.

To anyone who has created a barricade that shouted "FRENCH REVOLUTION" or "GRANTAIRE, PUT THAT BOTTLE DOWN."

To fish fingers and custard, to walruses, to cat whiskers and alpacas.

To Derek's llama he would name Phoebe, and his walrus, Cecil Boddinton III.

AND TO SHERLOCK - THE EMPTY HEARSE.

Aaaand .... I'm done.

HOW IS YOU??

Mistical Future said...

Hi Jubi!

how are you?

Mistical Future said...

We have the chance to turn the pages over
We can write what we want to write
We gotta make ends meet, before we get much older

We're all someone's daughter
We're all someone's son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?

You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo

This time, we know we all can stand together
With the power to be powerful
Believing we can make it better

Ooooh
We're all someone's daughter
We're all someone's son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?

You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo

Ooooh
We're all someone's daughter
We're all someone's son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?

You're the voice, try and understand it
Make a noise and make it clear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo
We're not gonna sit in silence
We're not gonna live with fear
Oh-wo-wo-wo, oh-wo-wo-wo [4x]

Star Inkbright said...

*QUIET TODAY

Star Inkbright said...

And I don't know how to revise, really . . . :P

Star Inkbright said...

And my parents never monitor my schoolwork. They never know what I'm doing when or what until I tell them whilst making random conversatiom. I just get on with it . . . I think it's partly coz I'm always in my bedroom. My friend, for example, does her homework on the kitchen table . . .

If you want to know what random conversation is, this comment is it! :)

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Yeah, I know:( I was just going to bed yesterday and then thought you and Mara hadn't been on today, but you normally are AND STRANGENESS!

Alice (Or Tyler to some) said...

God I hate tumblr, it's distracting meeeeeeeeh

Star Inkbright said...

The verb 'corrupted' is one of my favourite words. :)

I got given it to explode in English today. Miss gave 'corruptd' to all her top English people . . .

I was happy I got 'corrupted'. It's not as easy as 'country' or 'picnic', but it's an awesome word and I give long rants about how corrupt things are. :)

YEAH, WATCH MY PROCRASTINATE. :) I can't draw Louis's arm right . . . *looked back a Mara's comment on yesterday to find out which one Louis was*

I'm never gonna finish this leaving present for Friday! D:

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Ah, back on le computer and now I can do this:
*hands out massive ninjaeroplanetacklehug*!

Ooo, Tumblr! What's your blog URL Tyler?

MY ENGLISH TEACHER DOESN'T LIKE ME! She thinks I talk to much...*looks around innocently*

Probably have to disappear in a few moments for le dinner.

Unknown said...

HEY DEREK! I saw you in LEIPZIG on the book fair. I make a photo with you. I was soooo happy.., I cried! You are so great! I hope, you will come next year again! (:

Star Inkbright said...

*ME

I was thinking you and Scáth hadn't been on . . . IT WAS QUIET. :/

I don't know who to blame for this, so I'm blaming it on the Ezes. :)

My character told Ez today in my head tody that wanted to write a long something, but he didn't know what to write, so he wrote thousands of pages detailing how every single problem in the world was the fault of the Ezes. Except he went off on random rants about corrupt governments (I WAS STILL THINKING ABOUT MY 'CORRUPTED' AND CORRUPTION WHEN I MADE THIS UP, REMEMBE) and Pixar and Pontipines and vegetables' personalities. Ez told him he needed a life. XD
And he said he had one.
And she said he needed another one.
And he told her he had 23 (long story).
And she said well, that's not enough, you need a thousand.
And he said that if he had that many he'd explode.
And she said good. :P
And he told her how nice she was.
And she was like yeah that's why I won the award.
Then they looked at each other, told each other they weren't going to laugh, and a second later started laughing about something that you don't know about and I only have a vague idea about, but it was very crazy and funny. :)
Then they started doing the finger-clicking thing. Long story.

But yeah. That all happened on the way to each lesson and on the way home. My head is such a fun place. :)

Star Inkbright said...

Well, there were various versions of the dialouge above, but thatwas motsly it. :)

My English teachers, like all my other teachers, think I'm far too quiet and don't talk ENOUGH . . . :P

YOUR ENGLISH TEACHER DOESN'T LIKE YOU? YOURENGLISH TEACHER IS STUPID. :P

My foot hurts (spider bite) and so does my mom. [Winces] She bumped into me four times this morning. She needs to be more aware of how much room she takes up. I don't think she's ever gotten used to being six feet tall.

But I have it now. :)

NOODLES!
Omg, when China take over the world, I shall give them noodles. KUNG FU PANDA EPICNESS!

Star - You're amazing at drawing! Or possibly amazing seeing as that's a drawing of 1D.

I'm so bad at art - I painted a rainbow for my art homework.

Star Inkbright said...

NOT LET IT BE! LEAVE IT ALONE!

Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My dysfuction is on your mind
When you find that you're at odds with your desire
Just leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My destrcution is on yourmind
Before you find that you have tested my resolve one too many times . . .

I love Leave It Alone. :)

Good Evening.

Regards from Germany.. ;)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Listening to Les Mes

Star Inkbright said...

I'm not amazing at drawing. :(

I am good at it though. Everyone is good at some things and copying things exactly is one of the things I am good at. :)

I always feel glad that, out of all the things in the world I could have been good at, I'm good at drawing. :)

If you're not good at drawing, that's good, because you're good at something else instead! ::)

Yes, you are! ARE ARE ARE! I'm good and running around in circles fangirling and being weird *nods*

Hi, Tyler!

Star Inkbright said...

I can't control my anger and I've been
About to explode far too many times
I've seen my dreams becoming more violent
Every time that I see you
Not matter how you try to define it
I have been broken too many time
Too much emotion too long confined has
Weakened he wall that protects you

Ease your mind . . . (mwah ha ha ha ha ha)
This moment will pass if you just

Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My dyfunction is on your mind . . .

WAIT, I ALREADY TYPED OUT THE CHORUS.

Star Inkbright said...

*dysfunction

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

And the walls kept tumblring down over the city we loved,
Great clouds rolling over the hills being darkness from above,
But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like you've been here before?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like you've been here before?

Maralie Lily Charm said...

And I'm gonna be an optimist about it
And I'm gonna be an optimist about it
But if you close your eyes...

Star Inkbright said...

Just remembered that I have two books that I need to read before TMS comes out. I hate starting a book and then a book that I REALLY REALLY want comes out and I have to finish the other book first. I either do that or I just forget about the book I'm reading and start the new one.

So WBD probably
