WARNING: OLD ART!! The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.

Exploring Louis's past and his motivations for leaving France. I wanted the text in the beginning to be French so it wouldn't distract from the action, like background noise. I realized later that this might make it even more distracting.

Many thanks to :iconsephora909: for the translations.

Mais qu'est-ce que ça peut bien te faire ? Si tu n'aimes pas ce que je fais, tu n'as qu'à arrêter de fourrer ton gros nez dans les affaires des autres !
Why do you even care? If you don't like what I do, then stop sticking your big nose into other peoples' business!

Ne me parle pas sur ce ton ! Je suis ton père !
Don't you talk to me like that! I am your father!

Oh, vraiment ? Alors maintenant tu es mon père ? Je n'arrive pas à suivre, ces derniers temps. C'est aussi dur savoir combien de fois tu as essayé de me déshériter !
Oh really, now you are? It's difficult for me to keep track these days. It's also tough to keep track of how many times you've tried to disown me!

Comment oses-tu ?!
How dare you!

... Et reste ici !
... And stay there!

Très bien ! Cause toujours !
Fine! See if I care!

I just adore the final panel. You can see he's living in some form of a memory of those scars, he's facing them as best as he can. It hurts, but he knows he has too.

Can I just say that I love this guy? I discovered this comic series a little while ago and WOW. I have never fallen for an OC so fast. I usually dislike them. But I just love this one and most everybody else in this universe as well. They're all so fleshed out and believable. Oddly enough, it's how eccentric Louis is that makes him believable. ...oops. I rambled.

I've been reading Louis and James comics all day and I must say....
This one really made me fall in love with Louis. He's just a really great and well done character. And with that last panel I almost broke into tears.
I.
Love.
Louis. A lot. He's probably one of the best OCs I've really ever come across. And seeing this side of him, this sweet but sort of pained side, it makes him more realistic. It shows how he does have a serious side. He cares about things dear to him.
He is truly a good person. ....usually.
This is why I really like Louis. He's just a beautiful character.

Omg, you have no idea how much I love you and your art~
A few minutes ago, I was already reminding myself to watch you because you're just so utterly fabulous. Now, I'm sooo going to do it THIS VERY INSTANT because Christine is my name, and I swear. . . it's a sign. 0.0 (I'm sorry if that sounded at all stalker-ish or annoying) Also, I decided to take your writing in French as an opportunity for me to practice my understanding of the language, which I've been studying for 5 years and am surprisingly still no good at. But I found out I actually got almost everything right~! :D Woot, self esteem boost! But anyway, back to you... I'm guessing you're Canadian, since you speak both French and English perfectly and your username clearly states the word "Canadian". Is that true? (That'd just make em love you more because I absolutely adore Canada and everything about it) And another question: Are Louis and Christine siblings, or...? They have the same long face and blue eyes and beautiful hair. :3
Again, I apologize if any of this sounds at all creepy and overly obsessive. You and your art just really peaks my interest, is all.

I'm actually only half Canadian, have never lived in Canada except for three months when I tried uni there, and don't speak a word of French. All my French translations I get from fans or friends, trusting their word that it's correct. Christine is Louis's sister, yes.

This is heartbreaking because not only do I feel horribly bad for Louis and his situation but I know that this a real thing and it could happen in real life to many people. He's so kindhearted to keep his sister from worrying.

Omg, I am fan of your work! I can wait anymore for see your animation, good work and good continuation for this! ;)
I love so much Louis! Hum... I am french and I be pleasantly surprised when I see french on your comics! =) If I might I say something there are some little spelling mistake (sorry, I have a ugly english and give a lesson to you! ^^; but please, don't take it like a lesson but a help, I cannot dare to criticize your work!)
I think you can writte "Je n'arrive pas te à suivre, ces derniers temps. C'est aussi dur de savoir combien de fois tu as essayé de me déshériter !"
"Te" it's to name reasoning of the other person, his father. Is not really indispensable, but it's more correct ;). Don't ask me why "de", it's just a complexity of french language that I don't understand myself... but is indispensable (why it's so complicate?!! Grrr)

I hope I don't offend you, is not big mistake and your text is perfectly understandable, but I think is always better in a really good langague, even if language il stranger! So, voilà! ;) And thanks for all your beautifull job!

Thanks for the correction, a few people have pointed it out but I haven't had the time to go back in to change it. I'll keep it in mind, though. I only studied French for two years in school and I was pretty bad at it, so I don't know this stuff. =P
