The Neitherlands is "the place between all other places"[1], a transitional world that contains portals to other worlds, including Earth and Fillory.

OverviewEdit

The Neitherlands is a vast, deserted city with an endless number of fountains that serve as portals to another worlds. It was thought to be infinite but it's proven by Penny that it has a limit, but it's dimensions limit every possible countage.

Book and TV series Edit

In the books, The Neitherlands is a city with fountains that possess a single unique statue in the middle, that is surrounded by tall closed buildings. Each universe as a specific style. Time doesn't pass and it has a sunny atmosfere.

However, in the show, every fountain is similar except for the statue in the middle, and there are no buildings. Instead, The Library is a cave system bellow the fountains. Time passes slower here than in Earth, and it has three moons, as well as a cloudly gray atmosfere.

Another difference between the books and show is that, in the books, the fountains are filled with black ink while in the show,it's regular water.
