Modern AU: Mistaken Identity

@ocuvigil

This wasn’t what he’d planned. All he’d wanted was to get away from corporate executives for a while. It had been a mistake to wade into the throng of the convention by himself. Wilhelmina had come to this event to be part of a panel by Byric Games. It would be his first public appearance in years. There was pretty much only one picture of him online so how did these people know who he was?

A game convention had seemed fun. It got him out of desk work. He had forgotten about the crowds. He had forgotten that at least half the people there were enthusiastic enough to research the people chairing the company. It was nice to be appreciate but aah. So many people all trying to talk to him at once. Wilhelmina desperately tried to get away and hide.

Dutch Queen Wilhelmina during WW II.

In 1939 the Dutch government and the Royal Family were forced to flee to England. Princess Juliana and her family, travelled to Canada from London as England was deemed not safe enough.
Queen Wilhelmina and the government stayed in England. From there they lead the resistance, worked closely together with the allied forces and welcomed Dutch people who fled to England to join the armed forces, become spies or go back to the Netherlands as trained men and women of the resistance or for secret missions.
Queen Wilhelmina was one of the voices of Radio Orange which broadcasted, secretly in the Netherlands. All over the country, people hid their radios and would listen in cellars, closets, barns or sheds to news. Radio Orange gave people hope and Queen Wilhelmina the voice of hope.
Leaflets were dropped from airplanes and spread by the resistance with pictures and messages of the Royal Family.
Several of these leaflets were among my grandmother’s proudest possessions until the day she died. If these leaflets were found in your possession or caught listening to Radio Orange, there would be severe repercussions so it was quite a risk. But hope was all they had and the Royal Family became a beacon of hope in those days. So seeing a photo meant the world to people and well worth the risk.

I just think it’s so fucking weird how she already put Wilhelmina in every single bio like wtf? She is not even mentioned on their homepage yet, also I don’t know how this works for modeling agencies, but is it usual to get hired immediately after the first meeting/interview? I also cannot relate to that agency, like don’t they run a social media check on those who apply? I wouldn’t hire someone if I saw that they get mainly negative feedback on social media, that seems

like it would hurt the company

It’s all very weird. I know nothing about modeling agencies, but I just assumed Wilhelmina was a reputable one because Bryana works for them and she’s very successful. I guess that was a really stupid mindset for me to have now that I think about it lol…especially since I have no idea if Bryana actually worked to get where she is or not.

They must not be nearly as big or reliable as I thought if they signed Arzaylea – a problematic social climber who can’t even walk in heels without stumbling – in a heartbeat.

im gonna talk about the royals again, so like blacklist my ass idc. 

i was thinking about s2 and s3 in regards to wilhelmina and liam’s interactions. it’s basically a polo match meetcute. and afterwards, bc they run in the same social circles, they keep running into each other so you think ‘oh these two are going to be a thing’ and that’s kind of what we all wanted. (but then the dominique plot kicks and liam gets distracted). 

there is an obvious attraction between them but liam doesn’t pursue her—if anything wilhelmina is the one doing the (gentle) pursuing. i think we can all agree that wilhelmina, for the most part, has good intentions. she’s not a ‘crown chaser’, okay she’s not gemma (miss her tho tbh)–but she is pro monarchy and she does see liam’s potential—she’s the one to give him the push that he can still change things from the inside, illegitimate son or not (bc remember she was staring the # campaign with the general knowledge that he was not Simon’s son). 

by the end of s2 it looks like they both have kind of reached an understanding—there’s mutual attraction but liam is not in the best headspace for a relationship but wilhelmina makes it clear she’s not gonna be ‘just another girl’ that he just sleeps with and forgets about (2x06) and he tells her he would never be the guy to stand her up (lies). they’re in a limbo of ‘not just friends’ on to maybe becoming something else, so wilhelmina thinks. 

s3 wilhelmina kind tip toes around, dropping hints to liam like ‘is it okay to accept your mothers’ job offer? i dont want it to get in the way of our friendship’–looking for a sign fm him but he gives her his blessing. which can be seen as a positive for wilhelmina bc it means ‘oh he does want me in his life’ but it was actually kind of a negative bc this is when he begins to really distance himself fm her and only coming to her when he needs comfort.
