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 The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.

Those of us in :iconthe-oc-consortium: received a ransom note on Tuesday from Shendin's devious character Rigmarole, who had kidnapped her and demanded we appease his sense of mischief if we wanted her back. However, Louis lives for lawbreaking and James's sense of pride and honour wouldn't let him stand idly by while a damsel was in distress!

I wonder how a trickster god will feel about being duped ... maybe he'll see the humour in it?

*snort, giggle* OMG.. I can't get enough of James' "April Fool's" face!! Just looking at the panel makes me want to smile as widely as he is. Oh my, oh my.. It's up there with that ridiculously surprised noise Richard made in the pod  cast.. I swear I couldn't stop laughing for a good five minutes. Cute!

Hahaha! Oh god that noise. I'd like to think at this point James has the capacity for being absolutely ridiculous, but he keeps himself in check because he has a reputation to maintain ... and a duty to the service!

Glad to see James is capable of loosening up.  He's a good guy.  He's just a bit...rigid.  Funny how it takes his French flamboyant frienemy to get him to cut loose.  I wonder if the same can be done for their Spanish amigo?

I think James can loosen up from time-to-time, he just likes to make sure no-one is around to see when it happens.

Butbutbut, ohmagee I LOVE THIS! :heart: I absolutely love how you drew Rigmarole here! Bad Sak for thinking you stuffed up his face or whatever! I just love it! :love:

Ohmai~ I do wonder how Rigmarole feels about being duped. I hope he's not too sore about it. Usually he sees it coming...but even gods aren't 100% fool-proof!
This is going directly into my favorites~!
And on my wall.

James, those faces you make. xD

I hope for Louis and James's sake that he's a good sport, I can only imagine what a trickster god could do to get back at him ... even something a simple as chewing gum in Louis's hair would be the death of him.

Or at least the death of several of his locks.

Oh, he's a good sport about it--Life's a source of perpetual amusement for him, so if something bothers him it's never for long. 

Doesn't mean he won't retaliate, though.

I'm glad to hear our dear Shen is safe! (Though I must admit, now I feel a bit silly letting my characters get away with their own pranks. Sure, they claimed it was all to help Shen, but during their shenanigans they made it clear that they only wanted to cause trouble. Brats. At least Shen is doing alright now! XD)

He killed three birds with one stone, even: April Fooled me, April Fooled Rigmarole, and got the drop on James as well "for the greater good" my behind.

I may have to draw a separate picture of Louis on a horse. Properly. With stirrups he can actually fit those long legs into.

:iconmountainlygon:
MountainLygon Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Might wanna give him a draft horse, then.  I don't know that Louis would fit on anything that's shorter than 17 hh.  The only issue is that he's a skinny stick of nothing, and draft horses are generally really stocky.  So it'd be a weird combination of skinny rider with a huge, bulky horse.

Still, there's potential for hilarity there.

Quarter-Virus Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Professional Filmographer
He's a cartoon so his horse will be a cartoon; I haven't considered a draft horse. A lot of people seem to assume that just because Louis is as fab as he is, he'd have pet poodles or ride an animal with hair as long and flowing as his ... in actual fact he's an aristocrat's son, so while he would be well-trained in riding, he would also have responsibilities to go out hunting and entertain other rich socialites. Thus, there is practicality in his madness ... ridiculously high heels aside.

Well, he's tall for a pony.  Granted, still probably not tall enough for Louis, but James could probably ride him well.

In this D.A. Group, An Original Character named Rigamarole, was holding his artist, Shendin, for randsom, and in exchange for her freedom, he wanted to see Original characters pulling pranks on their respective creators.

This artist has two OCs, Louis, a Flamboyant French Pirate, and James, a Straight-Laced, no nonsence British Officer.

Louis convinced James to tell His artist that he was Gay, which is out of character for him, and Rigamarole watches. As he's watching this happen, Louis goes to rescue Shendin.

A little clearer now? :ahoy:
