The Author ThemselfOr: Who does this guy think they areis, anyway?
English | Nederlands | toki pona | Esperanto
Oh, hello! My name is Marijn Florence Robert [Lastname].I like to use "van Hoorn" as a pseudonymous surname on occasion. I'm a Dutch citizen residing in Northern England (help).
I'm non-binary (more specifically, genderfluid); i go by they/them, ve/vem/virvem rhymes with them; vir is pronounced like veer, he/him, and she/her, although if you're going to pick one, i'd suggest you go with one of the gender-neutral ones. (if you refresh the page the pronouns used in the header will probably change!)
I'm also a hellenic pagan worshipping Apollo, Dionysus, and Hermaphroditus; you can check out my shrines to them here!
As you may have noticed while browsing this site, i have a number of *deep sigh* typing quirksDAMN YOU ANDREW HUSSIE with regards to how i use the English language. In no particular order, these include:
- I like to lowercase the first-person pronoun "i" when it wouldn't otherwise be capitalised. I used to gripe about the arbitrary capitalisation a lot but i have decided to BE THE CHANGE I WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD
- I use ligatures for <æ> and <œ> in words like fœtus, æsthetics, and diæresis.
- Speaking of diæreses, i use them to seperate out vowels in words like reëntry, poëtic, and zoölogy.
- Finally, unless otherwise written, i write all my dates in the Holocene Era instead of the Common Era, so that the current year is not 2020, but 12020. It avoids all that faffing around with no year 0 and BC dates, and it's.... sliiightly more culturally neutral?
You can find me on the tumblr at @concerned-batavian, and on the discord at marijn🌈xo#0270. (if you got my discord info via neocities, put it in your username temporarily or something— i'm not exactly in the habit of accepting friend requests from non-mutuals!)
