That's why you don't see her.

Seriously though I am just walking on this stage here to introduce myself.

So,

My screen name is Erianaiel. I am occasionally going by Marian as well so there is no need to be alarmed if I sign messages by either name. I am not developing a split personality.
I am from the Netherlands for those who keep track of that kind of thing for evidence that the Whateleyverse expands a littl further

I have done a lot of stuff, most of which is either not relevant for this forum or a bit too personal for a first date :cheer: However, to not be cruel, I did some singing in a band (none anybody might know of and no records either. It was playing covers for fun and a little profit to tide over my student years and a little beyond).
I also have done some modelling, even nudes. For art schools mostly, no fashion and very little photo. And yes, there are pictures (duh) and no, I am not going to tell where to find them (again, duh)
I was a bit of a sports maven but too short for my favourite sport (volleyball). I did a little fencing (but not competitive enough to get very far), judo (same) and athletics (but again: short). I didn't really like gymnastics and thankfully I was pretty bad at it. And I learned that after years of playing volleyball you kind of get really bad at tennis unless you fancy hitting the ball with your fingers (which I can't recommand against enough. that /hurts/)
On a slightly more personal but somewhat relevant for the whateleyverse note, I do fit somewhere on the genderfluid scale :P Kinsey two, if that is still allowed to be used and you want to push it. Tried both sides of the gender war a couple of times and ended up with a husband and daughter (instead of a wife and daughter 8-) )

As for what I am doing here, I do like to read and write among other things, found the Whateley stories by accident and liked both the premise and most of the stories so I stuck around. Currently on my second read through even.
Eventually I hope to write a few stories of my own for WhatIF. I have tons of ideas already but a bit of a less than stellar record with finishing stories. (case in point thewhispertree.wordpress.com/ is what I am working on now, but it has seen something of a hiatus. Not writers block, I know exactly where I want to take the story, just tons of things that get in the way of writing)

However, that is still some ways off in the future.First I want to get to know the community.
Oh, and explain why there are no dutch mutants in the beret maffia ;) The officially unofficial reason why we don't see dutch mutants at all ...

Well, that's me in a nutshell (sorry Squirrel girl).
Please to meet you all and I hope we get a chance to talk more.

Greetings and salutations!
Hallucinations may ensue from too much reading of Whateley fiction... Or maybe those Shogoths are real!!

Of course they are real.
It is after all the collective noun for a birthday party full of five year olds stuffed full on sugar

There was one, but someone decided she should sit between Kismet and Dynamaxx, for geographical reasons.

It didn't go well.

Haywire (Roland Voorhees) might be Dutch, but the fact that "Wallflower thinks he speaks something that sounds like German" leaves American a possibility (The Voorhees name shows up in or near areas where a dialect of Pfälzisch is still spoken)

Other than that, there are more students known to speak Latin than Dutch.

There was a Dutch mutant iirc in the Big Idea by Bek.

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

The odds of a mutant student attending Whateley from any given country is fairly small really given the 'average' mutant population by density... a country with the population of the Netherlands, for example, might only see 5 manifestations a year total... and there's every likelihood that, as is seen everywhere else, 'most' mutants who manifest are on the low end of the scale, maybe not even getting a 1 ranking in any of the trait classifications... just having some minor quirk that is not baseline human.

So for us to include a mutant from the Netherlands... would mean having a specific reason to tap mythology or cultural aspects of the Netherlands for a specific character purpose. I don't know that any of us authors know your country's lore well enough to do that. There's plenty of other regions / countries that haven't gotten a focus either though, so don't feel left out. :)


And... by the way... welcome to the forums/community!

First of all thank you, and everybody else for their words of welcome!

I certainly do not feel left out by the missing (sort of anyway) dutch mutants. I know there are more than 180 countries and thousands of ethnicities and that statistically none of them get included in the Whateleyverse.

I don't aim for canon status either. In my saner moments I am aware of my limitations as a writer:-p
Which is why I think it is funny to see if I can, at least for my own amusement and stories, turn a statistical reality into a conspiracy theory.
