Love love love love love *claps*

Sturmwolfstaffel Hauptsturmführerin

My german is rusty, but that doesn't seem to parse right. Hauptsturmführer is good, but Staffel is usually at the front, not the end (staffelführer)? *scratches head* I dunno.

*edit* Ah, it's because I'm used to seeing it as a numbered squadron. Staffel fünf or something along those lines, with the Groups being named. Hmmm, Sturmwolfgeschwader. . . .

righto, disregard last and carry on then.
I checked it with my German Pedant, via his wife.*g* If he's wrong, I'm really sunk...

uuuh, more wampyr stories. I've just finished reading The White City and I loved it.
And with German bits in it again. I hope I'm not presumptuous when I suggest another translation for 'manners, decorum' should you use those words again.
'Sitte, Anstand' would do the job. Creepy words, those.
Thank you.
lol I still laugh when I get bonked by my spellcheck for "vampire". Seriously?? You know "elf" but not that one?

Every time.

Oh, spellchecker.

Didn't you know all you need to self-publish (elf-publish?) is a modern spillchucker?

(I love that spellcheckers mostly don't know "spellchecker."

Oh man, now I need to write a short, scathing story about automating magic users...)
You are mighty.
See icon. *pantpantpant*
Much love for German (no other language I know like it for compound-wording)!

Also, very excited to see female SS captain character.
Technically speaking the SS was the Schutzstaffel. But close-ish. *g*
So instead of being part of the Waffen-SS, she's part of the Wolfen-SS. Clever, Bear.
Also, "Sturmwolfstaffel Hauptsturmführerin" is the funnest thing ever to say.

That's good. But I think "Sturmschnabeltierstaffel" is even funner. Or perhaps "Totenschnabeltiergeschwader".
