☼ accidental video {FRENCH} ⇉ oo1

[ Good day, residents of Discedo, Spero and Dissimulo! Today you are going to be grace with the image of a rather attractive regal figure wandering down Main street in Dissimulo with some degree of confusion. There's probably between five hundred thousand and a few million euros worth in jewels on him, not to mention the finest silks, a gorgeous hat and a bright feather adorning the side of his hat, not to mention the most ridiculous tights stretched over his legs. ]

[ Ah, yes. It's good to be the king. ]

[ But, maybe not so much in Philippe's opinion. ]

Hello? Is there anyone here? [ Spoken in fluent, albeit it 17th century accented French, it's clear the poor boy is terrified. Not a very kingly way to act indeed. The wandering figure pauses in step, glancing from side to side, then furrows his brows. ]

If there is indeed someone in this village, I would like very much to speak with him. This is the King of France, King Louis of France, and I-- [ Faltering. ] --I...

It... would be appreciated if anyone would be so kind as to speak to me now. [ With a nod, though an unsure one. ] As you should at a king's request. [ Glancing down, mumbling. ] But if you don't wish to, that is fine as well...

[ And with that, the feed cuts out. The poor boy didn't even know it was on, though. ]

[ We'll just use the excuse that America is in Dissimulo to take down all the windchimes from his house so werepires can once again enter. It's a long story. We'll also say that at some point he decided to take a break and go for a horse ride with his pet cockroach because what else is he doing with his time. At this point he spots a very silly looking man and decides to gallop right up to him. ]

HI THERE. WHAT'S WITH THE OUTFIT?

[ all. in English. sob. ]

[ Staring. ]

[ So much staring. ]

[ He doesn't really know English. Maybe a little bit. He learned a little in the country side, but more Latin, and really, he only knows French. ]

Um, bonjour, je suis le roi de France. Pouvez-vous m'aider? Je me suis perdu.

[ Aaaaand a smile to punctuate that. He'll try his hand at English if that doesn't work, but he's supposed to make people conform to his standards, not him to theirs. And then him to theirs, so he can look like a fair king. Even though it's probably end up like something out of one of the Pink Panther films... ]

[ O-oh his little box thing is buzzing, it's buzzing, oh dear, what does he do with this... He blinks, staring at the words. ]

I-is this God speaking to me?

[ He's never had God speak to him before... he thinks for a moment, then looks down at all the little buttons with little letters on them, then makes his own message appear on the screen in what he thinks is French, though luckily, is being translated into Chinese. ]

I am unfamiliar with this Francis person. I am from France, I am the king of France.

Aaaaah. You look as delicate as a bowl of untouched rice! Look at those pretty things!
You are the King of France, ne? Yea, okay, okay.
If you just got here, you should know I am the King of this place!

The king of this place... then... you are God, yes? Why are you punishing me, God? Is it because of what happened, because I was not good enough to save d'Artagnan?

[ Oh, it's a woman... he freezes as she addresses him, then pauses a moment before very awkwardly walking up to her and smiling, then taking her hand and kissing the back of it before dropping it. ]

Je regret, mademoiselle, mais je ne parle pas Anglais. Je suis le roi du France, et je me suis perdu. [ And quickly, he takes out his little communications device and holds it up. Oh man that text translator thing is gonna come in handy. ] Qu'est-ce que c'est?

[OKAY.

You can do this Francis.

He doesn't have to know about 1789.

Right.

Right.

Of course he'll be fine! Everything is always fine.

Forever.

He isn't freaking out at all!]

done

[--but... how do you address a king over the phone?

Oh well.

He breathes and is tempted to pinch his nose to sound similar, but he shakes off the desire.

Also this is video.]

[ lala pretending this isn't all in his head ]

If there is a way to offer explanation, sir, I would be in your debt for some time. You sound like a citizen of England: as our countries are not currently at war, I would appreciate any information you have to offer.

For the country, yes, I am seeking my country. This looks nothing like my country; I fear I have been taken hostage.

[ Mumbling. ] Or perhaps I have merely gone insane...

[ Ange's French isn't particularly good. Rather, it's non-existent. But she's able to pick up a few words from the broadcast, and those are enough to make her curious. And she should be able to talk through text, so.. ]

Oh, we have a true king in our midst?

[ text ]

[identity profile] letatcestpasmoi.livejournal.com 2011-11-19 06:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Indeed, this is a true king, the king of all of France.

Hello as well, sir.

[ It has white hair. And red eyes. And it's in a little box. If this isn't the Devil, then no one is. Philippe puffs out his chest a little bit. ]

It is 1660 in the year of our lord, sir. Is there a reason you ask?
