Incredibly entertaining to see half of my german mutuals living life as normal while the other half has been losing their minds slowly over the last few days because of tatort shipping. Even writing these two words together feels surreal.
For some context: tatort is the most “crime show your parents would watch” imagineable and a fundamental pillar of german culture. It has been running since the 1970’s every single sunday and there are different teams based on cities, so one sunday you will watch a team of cops from cologne solve a crime, the next week it will be münster. All those tatorte are very different from each other since the teams have very different dynamics.
Enter tatort saarbrücken. Saarbrücken is the most unremarkable german city imaginable. In fact, many germans don’t even know it’s the state capital of saarland, the most unremarkable german state imaginable. What saarbrücken has got going for it however is having two very young and shippable detectives in their tatort. They even have a tragic backstory where one of them saved the other one from his abusive father when they were teenagers (I only know all of this because of tumblr).
The thing is: there is only one episode of tatort saarbrücken per year. The last one in 2021 (which was merely the second episode) made it to trending. I can’t emphasize enough how hilarious that is. Tatort??? Trending on tumblr because of shipping??????? And then it’s tatort saarbrücken out of all cities imaginable??????????
And well, tonight the third episode will air and this very small but dedicated fan community has been totally hyped up the last few days.
So in short, I can’t wait for tonight. Not that I would ever watch a single episode of tatort if you don’t hold me at gunpoint but no matter what happens, this tiny fraction of tumblr will lose their minds and might not only get tatort trending again, but tatort saarbrücken. I love this. Either way, I am happy for y'all tatort shippers. Or sorry that happened.

“Care to explain yourself?” - the civilian asked in a stern disappointed voice, their entire body shaking.
The villain lifted their hands in a surrendering manner and spoke slowly. “Love, whatever you found in the basement…, I swear I can expla-.”
“Oh, I don’t give a shit about the hero dying downstairs!” - Civilian exclaimed angrily, throwing their hands into the air. “I already know you’re Villain!”
Their partner faltered, startled. “W-Wait, you knew all thi-”
“The better question…” - they interrupted, crossing their arms with a glare, fuming. “Is why the fuck did you get blood on THE WHITE CARPET?!”
besties will forever bring up things certain drivers have said in the past (and long apologized for) but will happily ignore callum ilott being anti-vaxx and liking posts linking vaccines policies to the holocaust in the year 2022
