TC: Book Burning by Bilious TC: Book Burning by Bilious
ARRG IT IS DONE. Oh, Cecil. It all comes down to girlz. Sorry that the file's so damn big, I'm sure it's worth the loading wait. X)

Script by *AstroCrush
The Colosseum belongs to: *kilojara16
Iris belongs to: =kousetsukitsune
Billy and Cecil, in all their mess, belong to me.

:iconastrocrush::iconsaysplz:I've developed stories to further *TheColosseum's plot, so that there's more to follow than just the matches. I want to go beyond the tournament and show more, to showcase more of the characters who've appeared in Colosseum, and because I'd really like to see more of them

Also, these are comics that are going to weave together, like small pictures adding up to a bigger picture. And believe me... it's going to be a really BIG picture.

The sad part is... I actually came up with those pick-up lines. Those were the BEST I could come up with XD

The grin on his face when he says "chouette" is almost creepy. Though does give a cool look to the character.

Also, not often we see a character with actually proper french that doesn't get garbled in translation(I'm french canadian, so french's my native tongue. Of course, saying you're french canadian means that if you're not from Quebec/Montreal city in the province of Quebec, means that you probably might as well come from "Redneck county").

Then, the fact I'm french canadian is probably why I find some of the character's expression amusing, since we're more prone to swear in "bastardized frenglish"(yes, I said frenglish) here than french proper <.<;

XDDD I had my french proof-read by some french Canadian friends! I only speak a little bit of french-french, not enough to really count, but enough to understand the grammar to fake it. XD Cecil on the other hand is French-American. His parents were immigrants and they speak French at home, but he has a habit of using it as much as possible to seem "cool". Because Cecil is a douche. So glad you enjoyed! This strip was really fun to make. X)

Interesting :)

If I can asks, where did his parents emigrate from? Mostly a bit of a pet question for me, since Maine(amongst other states) used to be a place where a lot of french canadians emmigrated to in the past ^^

Though I assume by his manners that they are more of a french-french origins than a french-canadian one... because, well, compared to french proper, french canadians(especially from Quebec), can be sorta like the Rednecks of francophony at times* :P

And thus, a supervillain is born from the oldest motivation in the book: sexual frustration!

So the moral, ladies, is to put out with nerds to keep them from melting people's faces off.

A lot of fun moments in this! Has anyone even done 'fanart' of Billy and Abe at a gay bar? I loved the pickup lines too. Poor Cecil needs to learn how to score better.

oh
just dumb french slang stuff

I love that french people decided owls were cool so chouette means cool and then of course two-syllable slang is too long so it's more commonly now just "chou".

So like cabbage has this weird reverence in French vernacular. I laugh myself silly whenever someone actually says "chouette" or "chou", especially in romantic context: "Mon petit chou" is a pretty steamy term of endearment?

lols imagine pepe le pew getting all romantical "my leetle ka-bajjjj"



It's seriously the funniest thing ever listening to French pop with lyrics that roughly translate to "you're such a little cabbage baby" or "all the girls think i'm an owl".

Hahahahahaha that's hilarious to learn XD I don't actually speak french, I just employ the help of my french-speaking friends to make it seem like Cecil speaks it XD But as a linguist I love hearing about silly word plays like that XD

i know right

I speak second-hand French ~ not well enough to really hold a conversation but well enough to communicate if I need to.

It's interesting how slang works even inside the same language, for example in Canadian French calling someone "espece de chienne" ("species of dog" with female conjugation) means pretty much what it'd mean in english: "nasty bitch".

In France French "chienne" is fine and the "espece" doesn't add any emphasis, it just sounds awkward and redundant (which it is, but that doesn't stop the Canucks).

And of course if you want to call someone a nasty bitch in Acadian French you'd probably say "t'es une nasty bitch, wha". Or better, "t'es une bitch nasty" - english words with french grammar.

Hahahahha that makes me think of how in Anime sometimes they'd say random American English phrases out of the blue in subtitled stuff- "Nice catch!" and other random things... ENGLISH IS JUST COOL BEANS I GUESS.
