    Summary

    In interviews, Anna Winger has stated that she and her writing team had fully developed storylines for Tobias and Alex that were never filmed. I'd have rather seen her version of events play out, but here are mine, keeping as close to the actual series as possible. What might have happened in that final episode for Alex? The short section of quotation is from Deutschland 89, episode 8, The End of History.
    The title comes from Bronski Beat's "Why" (1984).
    NOTE: I am not a medical doctor. I have no idea whether this is how you should dress a head wound!

    Summary

    [This was written before Deutschland 89 was made]
    This is set about 25/30 years after the end of Deutschland 86, determinedly avoiding the fact that Alex Edel and Tobias Tischbier are both quite likely to come face to face with Nina in Deutschland 89, or that Tim may never awake, and giving people happy endings whether or not they deserve them.
    This story is dedicated to the late Sarah Hughes, whose episode by episode blog inspired it (see notes at the end)

    Summary

    Alexander Edel between season 1 and season 2. A first person present tense from the POV of an unnamed man Alex is sleeping with. This is part-character study, part-historical thoughts and mostly smut.

    Spoilers for a few plot points in season 2 involving Alex's family.

    Summary

    “He told me to go to the DDR Diplomatic Mission.”

    Martin covers his mouth with his hands. “Jesus Christ,” he murmurs, turning from side to side as if he isn’t sure where to look.

    Alex, to his credit, at least looks chastened. “I know. Moritz, I know.”

    “Do you?” Martin snaps. “Do you really? Because I don’t think you do. These people are dangerous! They hate everything we stand for and they want to destroy us!”

    Is someone running him now? Is Lenora?

    Why the fuck do they never tell him anything?
