. Mothwing .

I'm a language teacher in my second year of teaching full-time. After eighteen long months of training and exams I'm finally through.

I live the beautiful North of Germany, in a Hanseatic city with a rich history, beautiful architecture and more people with a very wry sense of humour than I have met anywhere else. It's not my home, Hamburg, but I quite like it here, too.

I'm the human of a cat called Sev, but sadly he can't live with me right now and I miss him immensely. Still, he enjoys the room he has at my parent's house and the company his adopted brother, our hunting dog, much more than he'd enjoy the time spent alone in our flat, I'm sure of it. So it's probably for the best.

I teach languages in spite of being tongue-tied myself often enough. I enjoy reading poetry, playing computer games, reading Fantasy novels, books that are considered literature and texts in medieval Germanic languages.

In my free time I also like taking pictures, editing said pictures, doodling, and writing, though not necessarily in that order. I also occasionally pick up arts and crafts projects or try my hand at learning one of the instruments that my very talented wife can play. I usually do not last very long, but then I'm quite satisfied with mastering only the very basics and stick to choir singing, which I love.

My wife or, as German law very lovingly dubs her, my "eingetragene Lebenspartnerin" (registered partner) is [profile] crocky_wock, who shares my love of the Harry Potter fandom, writing, long walks, hiking, cycling, oceans, and discussing gender and feminism, especially relating to popculture. I'm a queer feminists With Views which I occasionally also voice, but that shouldn't deter you. My user name comes from the riddle in the Exeter book below because I can identify with the moth.

Moððe word fræt-- me þæt þuhte
wrætlicu wyrd þa ic þæt wundor gefrægn,
þæt se wyrm forswealg wera gied sumes,
þeof in þystro, þrymfæstne cwide
ond þæs strangan staþol. Stælgiest ne wæs
wihte þy gleawra þe he þam wordum swealg.
