[ 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. ]

[ 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.

The king? Really? [Not portrayed: !?!?!?!? Kyaaaaa] Well, it's a pleasure to make Your Majesty's acquaintance. [This communicator's translator is taking some liberties with her actual wording]
From: [identity profile]
It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance as well.


My most sincere apologies, as I am not sure how to ask this, but... are you God?
From: [identity profile]
How is it you are able to make messages appear on this box? Please say it is not magic, I do not wish to engage in the workings of the Devil.

It's...electricity... [Wow it took her a while to come up with that.]

Is that the work of the Devil? Or is it a blessing from God?

[ because in 1660, it can only be or the other really ]

...Can I say that it's neither? But if I had to pick I'd say it was something from God. [Of course the word she used was 上帝, which is not exactly the same thing]

Then it is from God, as you say it to be so. May I ask why I have been placed here, here of all places, far from where my home is, when my country needs me?

I intend no disrespect by my inquiry.

Oh none taken at all, especially since I have no idea why I am here either. [And existential crisis is a go...]
