Finally an update. :)



Bohm is busted. No philandering for him tonight. :P

Oh, and in case I'm slammed for stereotyping again, Greek corporates and politicos generally tend to let themselves go. Like, a lot. ;)

Well there goes Bohm's suave guy cred.

Aren't colonels higher ranked than majors though? Is it that the major is Bohm's bureaucratic superior or did the Nazi military have different ranks?

Totally out of the window. XD

Well, Eichel's rank doesn't have an english term for it. He's an Oberführer and that rank is unique to the SS, while Bohm is his subordinate, being a Standartenführer (which according to the assorted wikis is a Colonel rank level).

I'm translating Eichel's rank as 'major' because the one right over Eichel (Brigadeführer) translates as 'General major' or 'Brigadier' so... I just nixed the 'general' from 'General Major' and hope it washes. XD Any suggestions for a better translations though, are more than welcome!

Big pretentious titles like "Major General" do tend to make the person bearing them more powerful. Another way to go about it would be sticking with the original German titles; it's more authentic and it is pretty obvious who's in charge anyway.
Any way works though. The point comes across clearly, especially here.

I tried that, but it's really hard fitting 'Oberfuhrer' in a narrow bubble half the time :/ I'll give it a shot tho.

I probably shouldn't be, but I'm laughing at how shamelessly openly sketchy they are (we're totally doing this for cash! And power! And let's have some married people getting hit on and hitting on other people!), even barring the whole fascism thing.

Also, Bohm basically SAID "Whoops, wasn't expecting you to catch me slacking off!" to his boss. And somehow it only makes it better that his boss is way shorter than him.

Hahah! I'm happy that comes across. XD That's totally how they're rolling.

And Bohm totally isn't good in covering his tracks when he's caught red handed.

I like the distinct change in mood by the end of the page. It really contrasts reality versus the fluff of the party. :D

Aw Gee Whilickers! I though she was going to offer her honor and he would honor her offer, then it would be Honor/Offer/Honor/Offer all night long.

It already is I grabbed that from one of the old Rusty Warren skits she did in her nite club shows. The theme was she was President of the US negotiating with Khrushchev over arms reduction.
