☼ 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. ]

[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]

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

It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance as well.

[ AND THEN A LONG PAUSE. ]

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)

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.

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.

[Text] -> French (My GOD I am terrible at this)

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