Fabienke Moments

Season 1

In Season 1, Fabian defends Nienke to Patricia because she accuses her that she has something to do about Joyce's disappearance. Fabian doesn't like the idea that Nienke would go in the attic to prove that she can pass their 'initiation'.When Nienke was locked in the attic (because Victor came and Patricia immediately locks it) Amber and Fabian tries to do something to let Nienke out, without being caught by Victor.But Nienke gets out because of her picklocking skills. Since then, they were close and Nienke tells Fabian about the mystery.As they made progress, they spent much time together, going into the attic and listen to the gramophone, containing the Wax rolls that contains Sara's recordings at her time about the treasure. Nienke and Fabian sometimes visits her grandmother.Because Amber became suspicious about Nienke, she tells him about the mystery and joined Nienke and Fabian, making The Club of the Old Willow or 'Sibuna'.When they were assigned to make a play by Jason, Nienke and Fabian suggested that they should make a play about the life of Sara, which they told that it is related on Egyptian Mythologies and Treasures.Jason was impressed of the idea and lets Nienke and Fabian do the play.

In the play, Nienke played as Sarah and Fabian as Victor.Nienke thinks of an idea to go to the house while Victor watches the play to get the Wax Rolls and record it on the house.Fabian was concerned about Nienke and told her that she should not go but Nienke insisted him that that is their only chance to record the Wax Rolls.

She tells him that she went to her Grandmother or 'Oma' (in Dutch) and changes his clothes there.They went to the dancefloor as Mara announces the King and Queen of the prom which unexpectedly, they were the king and Queen. Nienke and Fabian dances in the stage and says "Your amazing" in each other.Fabian was gonna say something to her but Nienke kisses her.That episode is where they shared their first kiss.Because of this in Season 2, Nienke and Fabian's relationship gets awkward.

Nienke and Fabian can't tell their feelings to each other.This makes their relationship awkward.On the first episode of Het huis Anubis Season 2, Nienke was writing in her diary when the members of Sibuna came and talked about the Graal, which they've hidden underneath the stage.Amber and Nienke was called by Victor to the office about the Graal but told him that the graal 'melted' which Victor believes.They celebrated with this and went back to the room.When Appie mentions the prom, Fabian suddenly leaves the room.
