I'M SO EXCITED!!! Also, seriously, I don't mind continuing to Serbpick even if it's for me, haha -- some element of surprise is fun, but this is ALSO fun. \o/

It is indeed! The similarity varies drastically -- sometimes I hear Russian and I mistake it for Serbian because they sound so similar, and sometimes I hear it and I don't even recognize it as Russian because I can't understand a single word. The alphabet is a little different, but you're right that there's a lot of overlap! I can generally piece together written Russian, at least in terms of pronunciation.

Now I'm curious -- do you have an author letter you can link me to? >_> I've been having so much fun reading other people's, I think this is going to be a great Yuletide!

(HA, there really really are! It's fantastic. True story: when I was twelve years old, my godbrother showed me the South Park movie with Serbian subtitles. I learned QUITE A BIT OF FUN WORDS.)
