Ringo and Yannick

Submission: German model/ soap-opera actor packed on some pounds

Fuck! This guy has seriously let himself go. No chance of him getting back into modelling now unless it’s for Big n Large. He may as well just give into the junk food cravings

Episodes 5303-5304 (08,09-08-2013)

1st Scene [0:00]

[Anni/Pia sex scene. John watches part of it. No dialogue.]

2nd Scene [0:37]

[Pia wakes up, Anni leaves the room while Pia pretends to be asleep.]


Pia: Perfect…

3rd Scene [1:36]

Philipp (on the phone): Of course I miss you both. But honestly, I’m also happy that I can sleep a little longer. [He sees John] Honey, I have to hang up now. Give my regards to your family.

Philipp: And? Did you talk with Pia?

John: Pfff…

Philipp: Okay. What did she say?

John: Said? Nothing.

I caught her.

Philipp: What?

John: In bed with another woman.

Philipp: You aren’t serious?!

Oh shit!

John: I shouldn’t have listened to you. I knew that Pia and I are over.

The coffee is so bad.

4th Scene [2:38]

Jasmin: Good Morning.

Pia: Morning.

Jasmin: Did you sleep in Anni’s room?

Pia: Yes… We… had a little too much alcohol.

Jasmin: “a little too much” is an understatement, if you couldn’t even walk to your room.

Pia: Yeah, I crashed.

Jasmin: Coffee?

Pia: And then I ended up in bed with her.

Jasmin: Eh, what?

Pia: Yes.

Jasmin: Wait a moment… Anni? … and you? … No…

Pia: I was so down because of John. … Yes, I know, that’s not good enough a reason but … It just happened somehow.

5th Scene [4:04]

Philipp: Bolle [the dog] and I were thinking again. That thing with Pia and that woman, that’s totally shit but I don’t think it meant something to her. You know how Pia is. … Or are you mad because it is a woman because of Paula back then?

John: What? No, … man, woman, transsexual – it doesn’t matter to me. The point is, she comes to me and cries about those big feelings she has for me and then this happens? She’s known this Anni for just a few days.

Philipp: You’ve known Elena for just a few days too and you smooched with her on the party.

John: Yes, but we just kissed. The thing with Anni and Pia was way more.

Philipp: With you and Elena would have happened more too if Pia didn’t walk in on you. Maybe she just wanted to comfort herself because she saw you and Elena making out.

John: And now it’s my fault, is it?

Philipp: No, that’s not what I’m saying. John, you two still love each other. With you, I’m totally sure and with her too.

6th Scene [5:08]

Pia: Thanks.

Jasmin: It helps with the hangover.

Pia: It’s not so much about the alcohol.

Jasmin: Why didn’t you tell me about John and Elena at the party?

Pia: I already whined about it with the guys and Anni took my mind off it very well.

Jasmin: One could say that.

I think that’s absolutely heavy.

Pia: What?

Jasmin: You suffer like a dog and she takes advantage of it.

Pia: No, it wasn’t that way. I started it.

Jasmin: Okay. Will this be like a WG-affair?

Pia: It was just a slip-up. … I love John, okay?

Jasmin: And Anni? I mean, I don’t want this to get such a drama like it was with Tuner and Emily back then.

Pia: You think she wants more?

Jasmin: I… I don’t know.

Pia: No, I don’t think so. We’ve known each other for just a few days and she said that she isn’t interested in relationships.

Jasmin: Talk is cheap.

Pia: Oh no, please don’t say that.

7th Scene [6:20]

John (on the phone): You can’t do the sound-check? Your flight?

[People talking about John and Elena making out at the party.]


Leon: So, apparently I missed some things at the party?

John: I am single. Pia is single. Okay?

Elena: Hello.

Leon: Hey Elena.

So, what’s going on between you and her?

John: I don’t know. The roadies are stuck at the airport. I have to prepare the stage.

8th Scene [7:09]

Pia: Never again.

Tuner: What’s the matter? It was an amazing evening.

Pia: What do you mean?

Tuner: Can I dance with you?

Dominik: Are you hitting on Pia?

Tuner: Yes, I’m trying. You didn’t know that she is a lesbian, did you?

Dominik: We had such a hard time with Anni yesterday, no chance. But she worked very well.

Tuner: Yes.

Anni: Hey guys. [to Pia] Hey doll.

Pia: Hey.

Anni: And? How about it?

Tuner: You’re hired.

Anni: That’s what I wanted to hear.

Dominik: You can work a shift with Pia right now.

Anni: Cool. My favourite co-worker.

Dominik: Let’s check the schedule.

Anni: Yeah sure, …

Tuner: “Doll.” I think she likes you.

9th Scene [7:51]

Pia (on the phone): Yes, exactly, mobile toilets. But your boss promised to send me a calculation days ago. … Mauerflower. She knows the details. … Hello? [hangs up] Stupid cow.

[Anni looks at her.]

Pia: I didn’t mean you.

Anni: That would have surprised me. Hey, are we going to the cinema this evening? There is this action-western…

Pia: Anni, that doesn’t work.

Anni: Okay. Then maybe another time.

Pia: No. I mean – this with us. It was really nice … I love John.

Anni: You aren’t interested in me. That’s okay. I wouldn’t mind doing it again but if it doesn’t happen it doesn’t happen.

Pia: Seriously?

Anni: Yes. I didn’t think that I would get the proposal from you.

[ John’s flashback

John: I love you. Do you want to marry me?

Pia runs away.

Pia: I love you. But I love Leon too. ]

10th Scene [9:45]

John: Armin? Can you get two crates of beer, please?

Armin: Of course.

Elena: Do you want to fire me?

John: What? No. Then I would have to fire myself. … Listen, I wanted to say sorry because of yesterday, it was a bad situation.

Elena: It’s okay.

11th Scene [10:18]

Jasmin: What do you think? The one with the skirt or the dress for the opening credits?

Pia: The one with the skirt.

Jasmin: Sure?

Pia: Yes.

Jasmin: Okay.

Pia: By the way, Anni and I talked. She isn’t interested in me. Between us is everything alright.

Jasmin: Good.

Kurt: And John? Did he find you?

Pia: Why John?

Kurt: You just talked about… It wasn’t about John? I thought because he was here.

Pia: What? John was here? When?

Kurt: This morning. Quite early.

Pia: What??? Did he… Did he find me?

Kurt: You are asking me?

Pia: Oh no! What if he saw Anni and I?

12th Scene [11:10]

John: You don’t have to worry about Pia. She has found someone new.

Elena: I’m sorry about that.

John: What? No… That’s , … that’s fine. Now everything is clear.

Elena: And you?

John: I’m finally finished with her. Ready for something new.

13th Scene [11:40]

Anni: Come on. Your ex didn’t see us, I’m sure.

Pia: And if he did?

Anni: Then you had some fun with a woman. Most of the guys think it’s hot anyway.

Pia: But not John. He was married and his wife fell for a girlfriend.

Anni: Ouch.

Pia: Yes.

Anni: But, doll, John did make out with someone else too at the party.

Pia: Yes, I know, but… How can he believe me that I love just him when I sleep with you?

Anni: He seems to be quite the complicated guy. Are you sure you want him back? … I can talk to him if you want? I can tell him that it was just sex between us. I mean, just if he saw something that he shouldn’t have seen?

Pia: Anni, I’m serious.

Anni: Okay, then, seriously. We were in my room. Why should he have looked in there?

Pia: You’re right. Unless we were too loud.

[Anni sees John]

Anni: Well, then just ask him why he was in the apartment this morning.

Pia: And after that?

Anni: Well, then you will see with his reaction if he saw something or not.

14th Scene [12:50]

Pia: Hey.

John: Hello.

Pia: I heard you came over to see me… this morning. Yeah, I. … I wasn’t there, so what did you want?

John: Doesn’t matter anymore.

Pia: Really?

John: Yes. What do you think?

Leon: John, they called. The audio engineer can’t make it until this evening.

John: What? I thought they got a rental car.

Leon: Yeah, somehow there is a full closure on the highway.

John: That’s just great!

Pia: I know someone who could help out.

Leon: Professional?

Pia: Sure.

Leon: Okay, then get him.

Pia: Okay.

15th Scene [13:40]

Anni: Well, I didn’t finish the education yet but this isn’t the Olympic stadium. That doesn’t mean the club is small, I really like it and I already worked in a lot of such clubs, okay, not a lot, but …

Pia: That’s great, isn’t it?

John: Yeah. The mixing desk is at the back. Take a look at it and if you have questions…

Anni: Okay. … [to Pia] He wasn’t overwhelmed.

Pia: He is always totally stressed out before a concert.

Anni: That’s something I know.

Pia: Hey. You’ll do it.

Anni: Okay. Then I’ll take a look at the mixing desk.

Pia: Yeah, do this.

16th Scene [14:29]

John: Good evening, Berlin! “Großstadtgeflüster”!


Waitress #1: I thought there could be something between John and Elena.

Waitress #2: I think this was just a drunk evening.


Pia: Can I get another one?

John: Yeah, I’ll make one for you.

Here you go.

Pia: Thanks. The band is really good.


John: I was thinking. About your job. I can’t keep you here.

Elena: What?

John: Yes. You’re too good. You’re going to frustrate the others.


John: And I want to go out with you and if I have to fire you to do this, I’ll do it.

Elena: I have to think about this.

17th Scene [18:32]

Pia (on the phone): That’s your chance to show your logo not only at a construction site but at one of the most popular events in Berlin. … Yes, I understand but at this price I can get several other companies. … Okay, that sounds really good. So, we’re taking 30 mobile toilets. … Great! Please send me the calculation, okay? … Okay, then until then. Bye. … Yes! [to Anni] That’s so crazy. Even the mobile toilets companies need a cool image. But it’s clear. Who uses a public toilet needs to trust them.

Anni: Can we talk about that after the coffee?

Pia: Sure, sorry. It was getting late yesterday for you, hm?

Anni: Hm.

Pia: What did John say about your work? Was he happy?

Anni: Hm.

Pia: Really? Congratulations.

Anni: Thanks.

Pia: Did he say anything else?

Anni: Nothing. He gave me the money and thanked me.

Pia: Really?

Anni: Really. And to answer your real question – John and Elena worked totally normal together, no flirting, nothing.

Pia: Really?

Anni: Really. Can I wake up in peace now? … Thanks.

Let's talk some more about Ringo

Seriously, Ringo from Unter Uns (a German soap) is fucking amazing. He’s exactly one of those characters that I always fall for and he deserves more appreciation. He’s a smart, witty, funny, sarcastic, handsome, hot, bisexual asshole (and a perfect Slytherin) but with a tragic/deeper back-story. He wants to appear cold and unapproachable but over the years, we get to see his fragile side coming through. He has a hard time getting close to people and making friends. He does show a character development and I can definitely relate to him in some aspects. Sometimes I just want to hug him because he’s so lonely and misunderstood. Also, Timothy Boldt is a fucking great actor. (I kinda wish this character wouldn’t be German but play in an English show so he would get more attention.) If you want to see Ringo and his current or older storylines (with EngSub) I can recommend taking a look at @mimi1985d. 💞 We should start a fanbase just for Ringo. ✊🏻

9 Extra Tips for Language Learning

Decide why you want to learn a language

Too often I see posts on Tumblr or Instagram with someone saying “I wanna learn a language, what language shall I learn?”. This is more than likely gonna lead to you giving up after a few weeks of study. You need a set reason for learning a language and for investing so much time and effort into its acquisition. It doesn’t need to be academic or for career-related purposes, it could be that you really love the culture of the area where that language is spoken. As long as you have a clear idea in your head why, you’ll be much more likely to stick with it.

Realise from the outset that it’s going to be different from English

Languages are not 1:1 ciphers with English. Consider the colour red. In English it’s just Red, in Hungarian there are two distinct words for what we in English call the same colour, but in Hungarian they’re not shades of the same colour, they’re distinct colours. Conversely, in Russian and Welsh, the same word is used to describe what we in English call blue and green. Isn’t that wonderful? There are often complaints about this on the internet, “Ugh, French verbs wtf!?” or that stupid picture of the German articles compared to the English, “German articles, because fuck you, that’s why”… All languages are different and there will be difficulties, but it’s very rewarding to be able to begin to think in another language, especially if it deviates particularly from English. There are also theories that the language(s) you’re learning can shape the way and the extent to which you think!

Be realistic about how you’ll do it

All too often, I see pictures of a phrasebook or a dictionary for a language on Tumblr or Instagram with someone saying “Learning X language”. It’s cool that the motivation is there, but you have to be realistic that this isn’t language learning. A phrasebook gives you set things you’re likely to say when travelling the country or countries of that language, are heavily formulaic and make no excuses for not covering grammar. If you’re travelling it’s often find to ask something like “where are shirt?” in a store because you’ll be understood. If you’re learning a language to approach fluency, this obviously isn’t acceptable and the resources you’ll need will therefore be different.

And about how long it’s going to take

Yes, there are people who are capable of learning many, many languages exceptionally quickly, but for the most part it’s going to be a long slog and you need to be prepared for that when you start. But don’t see it as climbing Mount Everest in a blizzard, see it more as walking coast to coast on a sunny day: long and tiring but wonderful and rewarding.

Figure out how best you learn and retain

I don’t like learning with things like Duolingo or websites or games, I prefer books and paper that I can write on and in and annotate and print things out and highlight etc. But that’s just me, I know several people who swear by YouTube lessons and Duolingo etc. You have to find out what is best for you. Through constantly adapting the way I learn, I also found out the best process for me, when I sit down in my allotted time for learning a language. Don’t feel constrained to follow the learning advice of others because it works for them.

Maximise exposure

Of course your language study will only go so far without exposure to your target language. For this, Spotify and YouTube are wonderful and there’s a breadth of TV, music and radio there and on the internet as a whole and some quick Internet searches bring up list after list of internet-based resources in your target language. 
Some people swear by listening to music. I don’t swear by it, because I think by their very nature, songs tend to be written in a stilted round-about way that doesn’t truly reflect the flow of a language, but they can be useful for pronunciation and vocabulary. It goes without saying that you should watch and listen to stuff that’s appropriate for your level and reflects your interests. I watch political discussions in French, but in German I watch soap-operas subtitled in English, so I can listen, but check the subtitles if I miss something.

If you want to learn more than one language, don’t start them at the same time

Through learning multiple languages simultaneously, I can tell you that you’ll honestly achieve so much more if you stagger starting them. Start one, and once you’ve reached a level you’re comfortable with, start the next one. This will reduce the initial load of language learning when you get used to spelling, pronunciation and basic grammar to just one language. It’s like building two sandcastles. You only have one bucket to fill with sand at any one time.

Also, with multiple languages consider other options

One thing I always recommend is to switch to resources in your target language once you reach an intermediate level of proficiency. If, like me, you’re learning two languages that are quite similar, consider getting a book for speakers of one of those languages learning the other. For example, I have a little book for German speakers about typical problems with Dutch (als/toen or als/dan for example) which helps a lot which declouding confusing issues or things that get muddled in my head.

Enjoy it as much as possible!

After all this is something you’re doing in your free time so make it worthwhile and enjoy yourself, it’s immensely rewarding a fulfilling after all :)

anonymous asked:

Chrolli (gay German soap super couple) had a weird boxing sl thrown in out of nowhere. Christian became a boxing champion overnight but nearly died in the ring because of undiscovered heart condition. Him and Olli split over the course of the build up to his biggest match (cos Olli was worried about him) but then when he won against some homophobic arsehole (and beat the odds), Olli ran in at the last moment and gave him a big sweaty kiss in front of all these reporters. It's been done.

Oh, I remeber that. I actually saw some of their SL. Hm.

S/m most embarrassing story you have about ur bros

Shu- This is more like a bunch of moments.. Kino keeps trying to kill me, but it’s in the most stupid ways possible. Once he just came up, straddled me, and started pressing a cross to my cheeks, neck and chest. After two minutes he gave up. I don’t know why he thought that would work.. since he can touch a cross… So I have no idea. He probably was high or something.

Reiji- I once saw Ayato singing Get Your Head in the Game while playing basketball… It was scary.

Ayato- One time, Subaru fell asleep in class and school ended, so Shu came in, threw him over his shoulder and left. The girls started flipping out, and once Subaru woke up, he punched Shu in the face. The car ride home was so awkward..

Laito- I once saw Reiji watching German soap operas and he was crying…

Kanato- I once saw Shu hitting on some girl, and she looked extremely uncomfortable and then she told him she was a lesbian. His face was priceless… Hehe…

Subaru- Laito once let Ayato pick his contact photo and while Ayato was going through the pictures, he found a ton of dick pics and now-… Well, I’m still concerned..

Kino- Kanato once was having a fit about one thing or another, but tripped over his own shoe laces and fell on his face. It was hilarious, but when he got up and I was laughing still… Oh god…
