☼ 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. ]

Oh, hello! Are you from Francis' country...?

[identity profile] 2011-11-15 12:20 am (UTC)(link)
[ 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.

[ America would decipher that if he cared to, but he doesn't. Fuck French. Them and their dropping out of NATO. It's like they don't even know the meaning of friendship. ]

Hola! Je ne sais pas. Nachos. Baguette! Eiffel tower. Canada.

[ Maybe if he says strange words at different inflections this strange man while comprehend him. This plan is fucking foolproof. ]

[Text] -> French (oh yeah, that...font thing would make sense)

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]

[identity profile] 2011-11-15 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
[ He blinks. ]

Ah... [ Glancing down, then swallowing before glancing back up at him with a slight smile. ] I am the King of France. --[ Another pause, as he's not sure how to ask for the man's name, but he just says: ] --and you?

[Text] -> Chinese (it's not really necessary, but it looks cool!)

[identity profile] 2011-11-15 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
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?

[Text] -> French (I usually do it, I just completely forgot. Too excited)

[identity profile] 2011-11-15 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
Um. That's an interesting question to ask... I'm not...

[Text] -> Chinese (that's okay, I am equally excited to be playing ~the king~)

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.

[ Staring. ]

...Charles de Gaulle? I thought you retired! And where'd your freaky mustache go? You finally figured out that it makes you look like one of those guys in the child safety promos that cruise around in white vans, didn't you.

I'm America! Duh! How can you forget the face of the most fantastic country you ever met and then viciously scorned because you can't get over the fact I'm more handsome than France?

[Getting back from work here and Sora spots the strangely dressed man walking down the street. And sadly, she's not very familiar with French.]

Ah, hello there! You look lost, are you new?

I'll let you know when he's done

[identity profile] 2011-11-15 05:31 am (UTC)(link)
-- [Who is this douchebag and what does he--]

[identity profile] 2011-11-15 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
[ why do you ruin everything beautiful. WHY. ]

Aa, uh, no! This is, aaahh, Emperor English-brows! He is arch enemy antangonist in the series, and wishes to claim the land as his!

He lies and cheats and claims he invented everything!!!
And, uh, ah, he has a fascination with French breasts, you should never talk to him, Mister King of France!

I am good King Kimchi!

[ whispering: aaaigohh go eat a bowl of rice, you idiot. ]

[mon dieu which king is this which king is it he didn't say and he can't remember oh he is the worst nation it is him--]

[identity profile] 2011-11-15 05:36 am (UTC)(link)



But maybe England hasn't noticed him yet...

That's good, right? Right...]

video; fuck you guys I can muncest if I want to

You have got to be kidding me.

[--Oh! And he thinks he remembers-- Of course he would-- Can it be?


Voice. French.

( ( Spain answers in familiar (though accented) French. His French might be more fitting of an older man but-- well, Spain is older, after all. ) )

The King? Are you looking for France, Your Majesty?

You can do this Francis.

He doesn't have to know about 1789.



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


He isn't freaking out at all!]
