One ring to rule them all.

I got married the week before last.

We've been a couple for twelve years so it's not as if there are many surprises left, but still. Being married feels better that just living together. I have no idea why, but I love it anyway.

The 'honeymoon' was rather short -- three days, two of which L. got pestered with work stuff. It was still really lovely, but we'll have to take some proper time off to celebrate next year. Not under two weeks, and this time we'll both leave the mobile at home.

We've only been living together for three years, but we've been a couple since I was fifteen. :)

Thanks for the well-wishes!

You got married!!!???!!! And didn't say anything ahead of time! Gah!

Well, congrats, and I hope you enjoy wedded bliss. J and I lived together for nearly 2 years before getting married and while not much changed logistically when we did, it was such a wonderfully freeing feeling.

Heh, yeah, I'm sneaky like that! :P

I do indeed enjoy it, although there should be no difference beyond the mere technicality of being husband and wife as opposed to girlfriend and boyfriend. But yes, it is freeing. We seem to be even more in tune with each other, if that makes any sense at all.

Herzlichen - wenn auch notgedrungen nachträglichen - Glückwunsch! :D

Heh, vielen Dank! Wir haben es so ziemlich vor jedem geheimgehalten, solange wir konnten -- ausser (notgedrungen) vor den Eltern und einigen Arbeitskollegen. :)

Dann werde ich euch auch nicht mit weiteren Nachfragen etc. belästigen!
Viel Spaß!

Gratuliere nachträglich! Ich muss Euch gar nichts wünschen, denn Ihr kennt Euch schon sehr gut. Also viel Spaß noch!

Wow.

Congratulations! I have no idea if this will sound stupid or even come close to the feeling (since I have SO much experience - Not), but it must be kind of like the cherry on top of the cake. It gives it that extra special meaning.

Wow. Twelve years. Congrats for putting up with someone that long and working through whatever problems you might have.

Haha, there was indeed quite a bit of working through problems involved (especially since we started the relationship at a pretty young age). But I'm happy to say that it's turned out all right so far. We could be Siamese twins or something (and doesn't that sound really healthy?) :P

Craaaaaaaaazy! :) CONGRATULATIONS~ ♥♥♥♥♥ That's so adorable, living with someone for THAT long, and then getting married, wow. :)

Thank you! We've only been living together for three years -- it's the relationship that's been going on that long. But getting married was a really nice feeling nevertheless!

Congratulations! I hope you'll both be very happy.

!! I had no idea you were in a relationship that serious. (But then why should I? We haven't been in touch much.)

Thank you! I hope so too. :)

You're right, it's been going on for a pretty long time. I think since we met through a fandom, there's been this tendency to speak mostly of fannish things, at least on my part. I've noticed that I don't mention my real life online much anyway -- mostly because it's so unexciting, to me at least. There's no glamour. :)

Oh geez, do I hear that! I do a lot of political ranting in my journal because my real life seems so boring to me. (See? Even my icon is yawning.) ;)

Anyway, since we both have LJ accounts, we're at least a little more in touch.

Gah, hit enter and it posted! Stupid thing.

Anyway, you already know, and I'll just follow it up with a big virtual hug and a smoochy kiss and many best wishes for you and L's happiness and success :)

This might sound kind of awkward coming from someone you don't know, but congratulations and best wishes \:D/
Must feel rather amazing, having been together for so long ~
I hope the two of you have a wonderful life together :3

Aw, it's not awkward at all! Thank you!

It is indeed amazing sometimes; sometimes it's simply average. The routine is comforting though. :)

Yaaaaaaaaay! *THROWS CONFETTI* I'm so happy you survived the wedding and had a nice mini-honeymoon! *glompittyglompglompLURVE*

*glomps back* I even took photos of Hamburg (which is really, really pretty btw.). I should probably scan them sometime...

And the honeymoon was fun even though we skipped the strip bar in favour of GoF. ^__^

Isn't it though! I still have to get used to the ring though. I keep playing with it. :)

OMG, twelve years is long! Have never had much faith in relationships but there, you proved me wrong :D

Congratulations! ♥

Relationships are definitely work, and it's probably hard to know where it makes sense to invest and where it doesn't. All in all, I think I'm really lucky that it paid out for me. :)

Hiya! Found your artwork on DA, remembered I'd seen your name on ash_grey_sky's friends list, thought I'd stop by and let you know you have one more fan than you knew about until right now.

My mom's Austrian... trying desperately to remember how to say 'congratulations' in German and failing miserably. It wouldn't be your German but maybe you'd still understand? If I could remember? Gack. Omedeto gozaimasu, anyhow.

PS- I think you're a shining talent and I hope you keep drawing for decades to come.
