Lillorainen-Huterric Union RP [Private]

Postby The Huterric Union » Wed May 23, 2018 9:37 am

A new era is dawning on the antions of Lillorainen and the Huterric Union, as Lillorainian president Silas Flemming is set to arrive in the Huterric Union for a state visit to enter diplomatic talks. This will be followed by a tour of the northern part of Bruno and most of Huswyae, two states in the Union. Silas is landing in the Brunean state capital of Hedison, near Lansadas, Huterric Union. the talks are being held in Lansadas in anticipation of an upcoming referendum resulting in our capital city being moved there.

Silas' plane is flying over the city of Lansadas, visible from both sides of the plane. From above it looks gorgeous, with skyscrapers, clear skies, a beautiful river, and a nice historic area in view. The plane lands in Hedison and reaches the private area for private jets, as to not disrupt commercial flights out of the airport (which mainly serves budget airlines). Speaker of Huterric Congress, Marc Auckland, and the Speaker for the Huterric Senate, Dominic Whitecastle, are at the airport ready to meet Silas and his companion. It was agreed all talking outside the diplomatic talks, happening over the course of the next 3 days, would be kept informal. The pair awaited for the disembarking of Silas before meeting the Huterric President at Lansadas 102, the tallest tower in the city.

Silas is walking out of the plane, and Marc greets him by saying "Hallo Silas! How are you? Nice to meet you in person. I'm Marc. This here is Dominic. You'll hear me call him Dom, but while you've only just met him he'd rather be referred to as Dominic"

The Nation Hopper had punctually departed from the military airport in Marieholm, a city located near the capital of Lillamala.
Silas Flemming hadn't be able to expect to finally meat Milán Longton, whom he had had a long message exchange with. He had relatively spontaneously decided to pass all management and caretaking issues to Vice President Michael Dahlem - who is used to doing this. He always keeps a view of government business everytime Flemming has to attend some important meeting. Or, "meeting."
Flemming is accompanied by Janine Reusrath, Head of the Presidential Office. Although she is quite young, she is experienced - as it is her job to explain to the public where Flemming is when Dahlem has to run all management. For this reason, she is rarely drunken, but not extremely busy either. She just needs to be ready anytime.
"Oh, we're over the time" - Reusrath now says. "We're gonna approach Huterric territory in ten minutes. I will tell the Federal Police Chief to pass our radio frequency on to the Hedison Airport operators." She nervously types a message on her phone. "Now, does Rehweiler know what to do?" Rehweiler was the pilot.
"Already instructed him" - Flemming replies in his typical relaxed tone.
"Are you sure?"
"Hell yeah. Just chill down and look at this."
The city of Lansadas is indeed an eye-catcher. The skyscrapers, the river ... not to mention the historic area.
"And the air's so clear ..." Reusrath immediately gets a crush on the city. "Why can't we have that back home? They really should vote yes for moving the capital here."
The plane approaches Hedison.
"Are we on time?" - Reusrath asks nervously.
"Of course we are. Rehweiler knows how to do his job - which he isn't even paid bad for."
Smoothly, the plane lands and soon comes to a halt, right at the runway Longton had instructed Flemming to arrive at.
"You see? Flawless landing" - Flemming says.
"Shouldn't we clap?"
"Are we package tourists?"
The door is opened. Flemming and Reusrath stand up and leave the plane, not without calling "Häst ding Saach jood gemaat!" ("you did a good job" in German dialect) over to Rehweiler.
Flemming leaves first. Obviously he has already been expected, as one of the men immediately greets him and introduces himself as Marc and the other man as Dominic.
"Hallo Mark!" - Flemming greets back. "Nice to meet you too! - This is Janine Reusrath, my right hand, so to say."
"How is that possible, if you have two left ones?" - Reusrath says, jokingly.
"That may be true. By the way, you didn't promise too much - Lansadas is really a beautiful city."

"Tell us about it Silas. Dominic and I were born here. Raised here. Learnt Lansaddian slang for every language that Lansaddians tend to speak. Four of them. That's enough. If it hasn't captured your heart already let's wait for when we drive through it." Marc exclaims.

Marc leads everyone through a building. A huge sign reads
"WILlKOMMEN IN DER HUDERISCHEN UNION
WILKAS IN UNION HUTERIKAS
WELCOME TO THE HUTERRIC UNION"
Dominic makes everyone get their passports out as he stamps them. He is heard muttering "We're not bothering with the whole visa on arrival shit" as he violently stamps the passports of Silas and Janine. He stamps Silas' with his right hand and Janine's with his left. He then says "The president is ambidextrous too"

Dominic shows off the wonderful white Lamborghini he owns. Silas almost walks over to the side with the driver's seat, to which Dominic points to a sign reading "Fahren Sie links in Huderischen Union", which then read "Ferren lenk in Union Huterrikas", then in English "Drive on left in Huterric Union". Dominic walks over to the driver's seat, sits down, and waits for everyone to have their seatbelts on before starting the engine, as per Huterric law.

it's a fairly quick drive to the H12, the main highway serving Lansadas. It also is the longest one in the Union, which Dominic points out, but it is then noted "we're only using the Lansadas section". The dark red highway signs glistened in the sun. One on the side of the road read "H10 IN 8Km. CHANGE LANES NOW FOR H10". Dominic floors it and he is now driving the car at 240km/h. He says "I know the president said we'd be going faster but to be fair we don't need to when we're only going 48Km down the road to the borough of Hytham."

The highway is built to impressively high standards, at least for a country that drives on the left, with 6 lanes in each direction. There are palm trees separating the highway from where civilians eat, sleep, work, and live out their lives, inconveniently by one of the busiest stretches of road in the world. The H10 junction passes them and a sign reads
"WILLKOMMEN IM BUNDESDISTRIKT VON DIE STADT VON LANSADAS
WILKAS IN BUNDE-DISTRIKT OV DEA STAT OV LANSADAS
WELCOME TO THE FEDERAL DISTRICT OF THE CITY OF LANSADAS"
Dominic turns to Silas, beside him in the front passenger seat, and says "You may want to get your camera out just for all the stuff ahead."

Flemming and Reusrath are both constantly amazed - at first by Dominic's ambidexterity, then by the beautiful white Lamborghini, then being warned to change the lanes eight kilometers before having the ultimate chance to.
Multiple times, Silas had to keep himself from wondering why Dominic overtakes slower vehicles from the right. Apart from getting used to driving on the left, he feels reminded of himself and a few officials from the Rathland State Council back in the 1990s who had been late for a conference in the southern of the state. Silas had driven the car, managing to get from Jillich to Lechelen, a distance of 78 kilometers, within 17 minutes. This was not even his speed record, but not bad for a time highways are usually busy. Needless to mention they had gone most of the return trip by a breakdown service car.
Janine officially has given up trying to count palm trees.
Torn out of his thoughts, Silas is being reminded of taking his camera out. "Oh yeah, sure" - he says, digging his reflex camera out of his bag. "Horribly expensive, these things" - he murmurs. "But they're worth the price."

All the uneventful, ordinary residential areas passed quickly. It was worth noting the size of the housesz which were obviously taller than they were wide.

The entire road is still littered with forests worth of trees, this time down the central reservation. Two signs came up. One listed the distance to the boroughs of Lansadas (Silas already knew to pay attention to the distance to Hytham). The other listed the distance to other highways on the network.

Passing by were some gorgeous high rise apartment blocks. The architecture was so modern and stylish. There were several photo opportunities on the way. Dominic reminded Silas "Old Town Lansadas is more photogenic. The highway system religiously avoids it though. Don't expect anything historical but do marvel at the tech"

Soon the Liberty's Light Suspension Bridge across the river Lansa was carrying the car over in its glory. On Silas' side one could see the river banks of old town, and the river glistened in the sun. The modern buildings blended in very well with the scenery and made the view an eye opener.

Eventually the exit for the tower came up and Dominic took it. "30 minutes. Speed record for Lansadas" he exclaims as he parks at the tower.

Silas did not miss the chance to take photos of the Liberty's Light Suspension Bridge and the river. "That's gonna be fun to show at home and make everyone jealous!" - he said.
"Whom exactly do you plan to make jealous? You're still on your own!" - Janine joked.
"Actually everyone." Silas grinned. "As if you can find a second professional photographer from Lillorainen who's already been here."
"What you call professional ..."
Silas turned to Marc and Dominic. "Not that you guys wonder - we often joke about each other. Daily business among politicians where we're from."
When Dominic parked at the tower, Janine checked her watch. "29 minutes and 35 seconds, to be precise."
"I have my camera, she has her watch - everyone needs something to brag themselves with." He laughed again.

Dominic leads everyone inside and to a list with a shiny metallic door. The lift arrives quickly, and Marc speaks, for the first time in a while and says "President Milán L. Longton is on floor 67 of 102." Then he presses the button saying 67, and the lift quickly takes them to the floor.

Dominic leads everyone to a room, and when they enter they got a spectacular view of what was just seen in the car. On the other end of the room to the door stood Milán, signing paperwork with one hand and writing notes with the other. It did not matter what hand he used. He had clearly mastered the art of ambidexterity. He gets up to greet everyone. "Marc, so pleasant to see you...after, like, 1 hour or so. Hope you're doing fine!" He says, before turning to Dominic and giving him a bro hug (the two are not only colleagues, but best friends also) while saying "Dom! It's always nice to see you again regardless of how long it's been! Take a seat dude"

He takes note of Silas and Janine and says "Hello. I'm Milán Lincoln Longton, although I sign my messages as Milán L. Longton. Very nice to see you in person. Yes, very. And let me guess their name.... Janine? Yes Janine. You look wonderful. Both of you take a seat." Milán spoke with an Aclenian accent. The accent is considered the worst accent in the world to use for telemarketing because it sounds so odd and hideous that if they can speak clearly their voice sounds gross, but if you can't tell what they're saying it sounds worse. Milán's voice was intelligible, and sounding less annoying than others with such an accent due to his accent blending with the Lansaddian accents of his closest companions. Identifying as an aromantic asexual, Milán did not have a partner so his closest relationshipd were with Marc and Dominic, both homosexual men (not with each other. Dom is married).

He sits and continues by giving a synopsis of each person's role. "Dominic is very experienced in his role, having had a range of roles in government I thought he'd be the best for head of senate, not to mention being my best mate he communicates well to me, an essential quality. Marc is fairly new to his role. Well of course seeing as it is a new role. He's doing a splendid job though, and being s good friend of Dominic he does the rib of communication with him about the goings on of Congress well. As for I. Well, I'll let Dominic flatter me later. The three of us here today are to ensure that these talks run smoothly and that we execute them efficiently, as per Huterric stereotype that we're efficient. I'll need to video the entirety of the talks because we as a government want undeniable evidence that stuff was agreed to in the unlikely event the terms of these talks is broken. You get a copy of the video too. Anyway, what shall we discuss first?"

"It's nice to see you in person too!" - Silas replies. "At least when talking, we're not bother by some guy requesting presidential approval after every sentence we say" - he tries a joke.
Janine rolls her eyes and looks at Milán as if to say, Can you imagine how terrible it is with him sometimes?
They listen carefully when Milán explains Marc's and Dominic's role, having to smile when Milán talks about the Huterric efficiency stereotype - another cultural trait both nations seem to share. Lillorainen is often described as "aggressively neutral and annoyingly efficient."
Silas realizes that Milán's Aclenian accent somewhat reminds him of the way Vörös Pál ("Red Paul" - a prominent Lillorainian politician and entertainer whose first language is Hungarian) talks. It's even easier to understand than Silas used to think, and not sounding more horrible than his Lillorainian Islanders' Accent influenced by basically anything you can hear there. Not to mention Janine's very special way to produce a Rhenish dialect, which, in comparison to "normal" dialect sounds extremely chanting and even more woolly.
Janine looks at Silas. "Not even a bad idea - we should start video-recording everything done in the Office, too."
Unsure if Milán, Marc and Dominic even understand what she says, Silas decides to ignore this interjection. He had sworn a long time ago that there are two things he wasn't ever going to leave to future generations of Lillorainians - mud wrestling duels, and ambiguous comments. While couldn't prevent the former for obvious reasons, he tries at least to keep the latter from getting public.
Asked what to discuss first, Silas thinks for a moment. "Well, as you know, some points we've already dealt with in our message exchange before. Yet, just for the records - we have mentioned a friendship treaty that would exclude Lillorainian citizens residing in the Huterric Union from taxation, and vice versa. Also, both our nations' citizens would be able to hold dual citizenship, if they wish. Also, Lillorainian university students in the Union would be exempt from foreigners' fee, in case this also goes the other way round - the least thing for us to change, as university education in Lillorainen is generally free - also for foreign citizens."
"Then" - Janine adds, "you suggested a mutual defense treaty, so our militaries can co-operate without violating Lillorainen's neutrality policy. Anything else we forgot to mention so far?"

Before the video camera was turned on, Milán did respond to Janine's comment on voice recording. He said "I have video and Voice recorders I can give you. Gift from me to you. I love your accent by the way, Janine. You'd fit in well if you went to Clarott!"

The video Camera was turned on the Silas and Janine discuss what they did. Milán interjected, and said "One topic at a time. Military is next. We'll discuss immigration first and foremost."

He gets out some paper. This had things Milán wanted to ask. He then says "So, dual citizenship. You are aware our policy is strictly against. I have no interest on repealing this law at all, seeing as this would cause a riot in such a patriotic country such as this. However, the public don't, and not do I, have an issue with Lillorainians being allowed dual citizenship here, and for the same to be reciprocated. Public opinion is apathetic towards freeing Huterrics from taxation when living in Lillorainen, but that will also be enacted too. These, I shall note down now, will be guaranteed outcomes of these talks. Now, as you may be aware the Union has incredibly libertarian laws, as part of the outcome of the Huterric Civil War of the late 1790s. This has caused issue when it comes to immigration, as, using abortion as an example, some countries may forbid it, we here allow it, so many from said country travel here to make use of our law. For this reason, I'd like to name procedures and controversial matters we have a libertarian view on, and we'd like you to answer yes if it is legal or practiced in Lillorainen, and no if it isn't."

Milán leaves gaps for Silas to answer after each item. He lists:
"Abortion
Same sex marriages
Euthanasia/Assisted Dying
Government funded healthcare procedures
Cannabis consumption"

"Oh, thank you!" - Janine says. "Though, many Huterric people might find a vocabulary table useful when talking to Lillorainians - especially if they come from the western part of it, as I do."
Silas starts enumerating. "Abortion - yes, legal. Same-sex marriages - yes, legal. Euthanasia - yes, legal. Government-funded healthcare system - yes, exists. Cannabis consumption - yes, legal."
"All these rights are also granted to foreigners without any limitation" - Janine adds. "It might seem odd to you, but although we are as libertarian as this, only a small number of foreigners enters Lillorainen with the intention of making use of our lax laws, or staying permanently. We still haven't really figured out why. Maybe it's just bad PR, maybe it has other reasons."
"At least there's apparently no risk of Lillorainians trying to get here just to make use of Huterric laws - they have all this at home, too" - Silas concludes.

"Exactly what I was about to conclude. No immigration problems shall arise. So long as you bar people from smuggling drugs like Cocaine, Heroin, e.s.v, then we are good to go" Milán says, before noting that e.s.v is short for "esc so vaiter", or "und so weiter" in German.

He then asks "How do we feel about pre-clearance? As in, if someone is on a flight to the Union as is connecting, say via a city in Rathland, then they can clear Huterric customs there and not here. We will reciprocate it for those heading to Lillorainian tourist hotspots too!"

"Hm, doesn't sound bad" - Janine says. "We can easily do it this way, especially since exports are controlled way stricter than imports."
Silas adds, "Anything you wish, actually, can be imported to Lillorainen - of course there are custom fees, so checks are needed, yet they are very low. However, we are quite strict on what you're gonna export, to keep you from getting into trouble with things that might be illegal or heavily restricted in the destination country. This is what we can easily extend to clearing foreign, in this case Huterric, customs already in Lillorainen. Our biggest international airports are Lysköping/Lillamala, Jillich, Pontrath/Kerkenich, Ailavar, and Lefkagor. All these would already have the capacities needed for said extension."
"Same would also apply to passengers from third countries heading to the Union and having to change for another flight in Lillorainen" - Janine continues. "They would have to go through the transit area, on which end a checkpoint is situated. There, they could clear customs for the Huterric Union and get into their next plane bringing them to the Union."

Milán notes this as a talk outcome."Currently, only Lillorainian airlines are serving the Union, and even then only through Lansadas Lagnchank International, Laclan St Lawrence International, and Thornwood Port Erds International Airport. Obviously those airports should have Lillorainen pre-clearance. Our flag carrier, United Huterric Airlines, will be serving Lillorainen by next week at the very latest, with the first flight to Lillamala being....Sunday I believe? I know those other airports get flights by Tuesday. Budget airline Telasair will serve Lillorainian airports with other budget carriers, and well known Huterric carrier Libertarian Airways will be serving only Lillamala. The airports they will fly from could have Lillorainen pre-clearance built too. It's your choice. We'd like our pre-clearance built in the biggest international airports though. We can trust you to be efficient. There is the running joke that inbound flights to the Union have their luggage in the luggage reclaim area before the plane has landed due to such efficiency displayed here, so at the end of these talks make a clean statement of what agreements you want acted on urgently, and I make no doubt we can get it ready incredibly quickly!" Milán says,

He faces the camera and says "Next we are discussing trade. The Union wants to make note that it exports more than it does exports, and thus we are willing to export large amounts of whatever needed to you, and the other nation is free to make great offers. The Union can be considered somewhat self sufficient, but we import certain items from abroad in addition to what we have produced here, and the surplus of what we produce here is produced for international trade. Silas, is there anything that Lillorainen would greatly benefit from being imported in from the Huterric Union?"

"As I said, the capacities are there in the biggest airports" - Silas says. "So yes, I'd definitely propose Huterric pre-clearance built up in Lillorainian airports, and vice versa. As you said, it brings more efficiency to us."
Janine nods, agreeing.
Asked what Lillorainen might want to import, Silas says, "Regarding exports to Lillorainen - whatever you have to offer. IT, weaponry, food and beverage items we might not have, medicine we might not have discovered yet, oh and of course the insanely fast cars ... we pretty much can make a use of anything, and we have valid currency units to pay for all this. - Regarding exports to the Union, actually the same - though, what we can produce in really incredible masses are beverages, especially beer, but also a wide range of wine, rum, and brandy sorts. Hell, not even we can drink all the stuff we can produce -"
"How do you even know the Huterric stance on alcohol?" - Janine interrupts.
"Oh yes, good point. Well, what we also have is components for railway transport equipment and for heavy to heaviest artillery, including some spicy things the WA would probably saction the bloody hell out of us for - if we were a member state. Though I'm sure that the Union has their own cool stuff. At least, you guys have nukes ..."
"In principle, we have always been very self-sufficient too, producing practically everything we need in a sufficient amount plus a large surplus as a backup. One of our secrets for our wealth is also our natural resources wealth. We've spent a lot of time digging rare metals out of the earth."
Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom

"We make our wealth producing most major things someone would want. Anyway, Janine let Silas talk about alcohol. We're rather quite liberal. We could do with some alcohol exchanging. We'll send over automatic cars, medicine, confectionery, drinks, IT, and weaponry. That should cover it. We'll get Haithem Department Stores to open up in Lillorainen. Haithem sell everything an individual could need, from clothes to furniture to books and stationery. Their stores are massive and of course we'll have to take you in one for some retail therapy. We'll take some of your alcohol and minerals and weapons.

As for weaponry, I think I can conclude that on the military front is we trade supplies openly. Make a clean breast of your military's needs in confidence, and I make no doubt at all we can get you what you need. We know we can get this to be reciprocated too.

Now we have that conclusion over, what is the overall view on asbestos in Lillorainen?" the President asks. Dominic rolls his eyes and Marc lets out a sigh.

"Lucky you" - Janine says to Silas, referring to Milán's answer on the alcohol question.
"Feel free to open Haithem Department Stores in Lillorainen!" - Silas says. "The more choice, the better.

Older buildings sometimes still use asbestos, while it has become rather unpopular within the last twenty years. Why?"

"We export a lot of asbestos. We won't export it to you" Milán says. An audible beep beep comes from his phone, and Milán faces the camera and says "Pause" with German pronunciation before turning off the camera. He then says "Be as informal as you like now as we're eating a tasty lunch. Are any of you two vegetarian? If so vegetarian menus are available, but be warned the dishes are very generic and not Huterric, as vegetarianism isn't popular here. If you're a meat eater, enjoy a range of choice of Huterric dishes. For dessert we're having Huterric style Yoghurt. You pick the toppings and they'll scoop it up. Dairy products use goat's milk predominantly, so be aware of that too."

"Vege- what?" - Janine asks, jokingly.
"Vegetarianism is practically unheard of in Lillorainen" - Silas says. "We eat everything. At least I have no food allergies. Janine, do you ...?"
Janine shakes her head. "Everything's fine, we can go on."

"Oh thank the fucking lord" Milán says. The waiter comes in and hands menus and says "Here is a menu full of generic starters and sides, but with Huterric mains and dessert". The menu reads:

STARTERS
Falafel
Chicken bites
Assorted breads and cheeses
Dipping foods and melted cheeses

MAINS
BARBECUES
Lansadas Tropical Barbecue (Assorted meats covered in peri peri sauce)
Lansadas Gyros Barbecue (Assorted meats in tzaziki with pita bread)
Ecklinshire Barbecue (Assorted meats covered in barbecue sauce)
Clarott Barbecue (Plain meats)
STEAKS
H14 Roadkill (steak with its blood salted then poured all over it)
Eastern Forest (steak with berries stuffed in the centre)
Lansadas Sunset (steak with melted Camembert cheese oozing out the centre)
SANDWICHES
Libertarian Takeoff (Meats with lettuce, gherkin, and Piccalilli chutney)
Langchank Surprise (Chicken and bacon with cheese, lettuce, gherkins, onions, all topped with a sauce of the chef's choice)
Denimon Delight (Battered Haddock burger)

SIDES (available with mains)
Salted fries
Sweet Potato fries
Parsnip fries
Onion Rings

DESSERT: HUTERRIC STYLE YOGHURT (please select toppings)
Snickers (Peanut butter, honey, and chocolate spread mixedd yoghurt with actual snickers bars on top)
Fruits of Labana (tropical fruits)
H2 Traffic Jam Surprise (Yoghurt mixed with a random fruit jam, topped with that very fruit)
MIX IT UP (Request sweets or fruits to go in! It is Huterric yoghurt overall)

The waiter then said "Each yoghurt comes with the flavoured yoghurt, a glass of water, and some plain Huterric yoghurt"

Milán orders a starter of assorted breads to share among everyone, and says "If you want your own starter then by all means, order."
He then orders a Lansadas Gyros Barbecue with salted fries. Dominic orders the same but Lansadas Tropical Barbecue. Marc ordered an Ecklinshire barbecue with Onion rings. In terms of dessert they ordered H2 Traffic Jam, a MIX IT UP with the yoghurt mixed with honey and with crumbled cookies as a topping, and a Snickers yoghurt respectively. "Und du, Silas?" The waiter asks, assuming he does not speak Huterric. One could see clearly what Marc meant when he said German was the lingua franca of Lansadas.

"Assorted breads and cheeses sound good as a starter" - Janine says. Silas nods, agreeing - then he says to the waitor, "Lansadas Gyros Barbecue, bitte, dazu Süsskartoffelfritten." He realizes that he might not have pronounced the last word clearly enough and slowly repeats he meant Sweet Potato Fries. For dessert, he chooses the H2 Traffic Jam Surprise.
"It's gonna be the H14 Roadkill with onion rings for me" - Janine orders, "and Fruits of Labana for dessert. Though, that Langchank Surprise sandwich sounds good too - but don't I have to watch my waistline ...?"
"Herrjott, du wiegst doch nix, nun nemmetens met dazu wenn'z willst!" - Silas tells Janine in his broadest dialect that her figure is fine and she should just take it if she wants.
"If you say so ... yeah, we could even share it."
Silas looks at Milán, Marc, and Dominic. "Women ..." - he says, shaking his head and sighing.

Milán laughs harder than he probably should have. He turns to Janine and says "Sweetie, in the Huterric Union nobody really cares about your waistline. Marc proudly sports his plump figure", as he points to Marc's rounded belly, which he wore with pride. "Sure I like my food, it's just a part of me. AIn't nowt wrong with that yknow. Be you Janine. You're figure is fine and you're beautiful, and really you'd have been considered a goddess of beauty many moons ago so you atill are one now!"

Milán and Silas talk for quite a bit. Both turn out to share a lot of qualities about them, just with different life stories. This made for the start of an interesting and tightly woven friendship. Dominic pitches in and joins the conversation with Silas and Milán. Marc is busy talking to Janine, reassuring her about her beauty, and overall impressing her with his good heart and knowledge of the city of Lansadas, whose views could be seen for miles at their altitude. Marc and Janine were becoming friends quickly, and Marc joked "Don't get your hopes up, I'm gay!", as a lot of politicians are.

Their starters arrived, and the waiter said "Do not worry, I understood it the first time when you said sweet potato fries" (in German, of course) to Silas and gave him a smile to reassure him of his speech. Dominic joked "You could have Milán's accent, Silas, so really all is good!" Milán giggled a little at the comment, then joined in on the banter. "At least in Aclenia we're not mixing Huterric grammar with Hungarian grammar. Completely different. Call me next time you mix up German and Huterric grammar when speaking German."

It is common in Lansadas to phrase things in German as if in Huterric. In mild cases this meant using "eine" when "einer" is meant to be used (although the way the Lansaddian accent sounds you couldn't tell if one was saying "eine" or "einer" even if using perfect grammar) or "einen" instead of "ein" because Huterric nouns don't have genders. In severe cases one may use "das" for every noun.

Janine, still flattered from being bombed with compliments on her appearance, laughs. "You do know that women are rarely satisfied with their waistline, don't you?" Indeed, there is actually no reason for her to watch hers, considering her 58 kilograms at a size of 176 centimeters. "Well, I'm even advantaged - I can eat as much as I want without gaining significantly more weight. And it's fun holding this up to Silas - I guess he'd be happy if he had this advantage too."

"Call me next time you mix up German and Huterric grammar when speaking German!" Silas has to laugh about this. "You know, it's the same where I'm from - although I grew up with Danish as a native language, like most people from the state of Visholm, I'm generally doing way better at German. Though, we have a couple of dialects, and they have often a grammar totally different from Standard German. I adopted my slang in Pontrath and Jillich, where we often mix up grammatical genders. Even worse, we also often add articles to people's names too. Even worse, this also can be very different within these dialects - Janine has a way more melodic accent with leaving out way more sounds, although her hometown is only 30 kilometers away from Pontrath. Then you have cities like Preetz-Pustingen, where they speak with very nasal and elongated vowels and soft consonants. And the state of Vedjading, whose dialect is a total gobbledygook no one on earth will ever understand a word of. And not to forget the Lill'rsprooch, a mix from all the dialects of the western isles, combined with elements of all the other languages spoken in the islands and a very different grammar - you could say it's sorta Lillorainian Huterric. Standard German is the lingua franca of the islands, but most people learn it, but only speak it with people from totally different parts of the country."

"We have a standard Huterric, and we do learn standard German, and we have a Standard Huterric English, but these are only used in the same situation as your standard languages. Each state brings its own twist to the languages they speak. It's one reason why Huswyae and Bruno are separate. Bruno speaks its own slang of Huterric, and its lingua franca if one isn't a Huterric speaker is always German. Huswyae speak standard run-of-the-mill Huterric, and its lingua franca around non-speakers is English. You'll see this change perfectly and how it makes its change effective immediately when you cross the border. There are 2 main towns in the mountains we'll take you, both by H14. Dahlia in Bruno, and Hywel in Huswyae. We'll let you see for yourself how speech changes, because it ain't that hard y'know" Milán says. You could clearly hear what he was saying. It was odd how he said "speej" and not "speech", or how he said "ve" and not "the". It was clear he would be quite able in speaking German, but just did not feel that way himself

Everyone's meal came before anyone had finished their starters (they were all quite close). The waiter then says "Genesen!" to the Huterric speakers, then "Geniessen!" to the German speakers. Milán attempts his German to the waiter, who spoke it as a first language. "Danke vielmals! Lass mich Trinkgeld geben, denn dieses Essen ist kostenlos!"
He pronounced it absolutely perfectly, but you could tell he was shaky about his grammar and word choice.

Silas and Janine look at each other, nodding appreciatingly. If Milán's intention is to say, thank you very much - let me tip you, because this meal is for free - then indeed, it is correct.
"Joode Hunger!" - Silas says to Janine, then he repeats the "Bon appetit" phrase in a clearer pronunciation to Milán, Marc, and Dominic.
Both Lillorainians nod about Miláns explanation how different dialects could be in Huterrica from one place to the next one. "Same with us" - Janine says. "I'm from a village near Roisweiler, a town in the west of the Rathland, and our Platt is already different from the one of the main town. The melody is different, and some vowels are. Still, it's easy to communicate, if you know the differences."
"Both sound spooky, however" - Silas jokes.
"Not as spooky as your monotonous speak with consonants that don't belong here, like Lück for Leute instead of Lüü."
"Still better than your lads' singsong over there. When you're in Roisweiler, you already hear that it's not far to Vedjading anymore."
"With the difference you still understand us."
"Right. Hmmst."
Janine looks at their Huterric hosts. "Now you saw our example. How common is mocking, or making fun of each other because of the dialect here?" - she asks. "Very common with us, but it's all fun."

((OOC: I made this little map to clarify what each dialect is based on as far as it's possible.))

"Depends. Aclenian accents and dialects get shit all the time." Milán says, then Dominic says "With good reason too."

Milán then pulls up the follwing meme:
Image

"Lansaddian accents are worshipped. Marc is a polyglot. You will hear how he pronounces every word in each language correct, whereas I with my accent don't.Not even fucking English"

Marc then said the following:
"Hallo, Iek bam Marc esc iek hev æn 25 Oktober Birtsdæg"
"Hallo, bin ich Marc, und mein Geburtstag ist 25 Oktober"
"bam" made it obvious that Huterric was a blend of English and German, as it was obvious now that it was a combination of "am" and "bin"
"Hello, I am Marc, and my birthday is 25th October"
"Hallo, ik ben Marc en mijn verjaardag is 25 oktober"
"Bonjour, je suis Marc, et mon anniversaire est le 25 octobre" (the way Marc spoke French was a huge turn on to all those who are attracted to males)
"Helló én Marc vagyok. A szülinapom október 25-én van"
It was apparent the Lansaddian accent made pronunciation in any language easy as Marc could say everything perfectly. His German was beautiful, his Huterric was amazing, and his French was a surprise.
