Here is a quick reference of my
version of 2p!France~!
Now... .: Prepare for wall of text :.
--Some quick notes:
-I wanted him to be elegant/fancy like his generally accepted version; however, I followed my style more, so he has a bit of Aristocratic/Kodona Lolita feel.
-His face looks like a fish/frog from a certain distance
-The right picture is an older rough picture I drew
-The flag is simply the inverted version of the tricolore.
-Questioning whether to make the sleeves bloody or not
-Hair was originally meant to fade to purple, but I did red just to draw it... and I like it way more... yup
-The tail will be sewn to look fairly choppy, not perfectly fashioned
-The cravate is modeled after the cravates the incroyables used to wear after the French Revolution
-As you can tell, I didn't finish the hands... didn't really have a need to..
-I forgot to note, but 2p!France obviously can't cook for sh!t
Name: Françis Bonnefoy
Country: Alternate reality France
Version: A. Elevin second player
Hair: Straight, slightly longer than Francis’s; blond fades to red
Facial Hair: Stubble/shadow
Weapon/Defense: Works best with small weapons, generally surgical
Fighting Style: Calm, however is quick with dodging; “plays” with and examines enemy during fight— this pisses off most of them...
Sexual Orientation: Curious in all beings; little to no interest in sex... other than for medical study
Relationship Status: None. 2p!Arthur clings to/follows Françis around; however that is mostly because England believes he has a disease that only France can cure (more will be discussed later). Believed to have past feelings for a young girl whom only England is aware of. Also believed to have feelings for America.
Personality: Distant; prefers to see things from a logical stand-point which often makes him appear pessimistic and over-observant
Interests: Death, specifically his own
Goal: Discover how to kill a nation; interest sparked when Prussia was dissolved, but still alive as a human
Theme: Such Horrible Things by Creature Feature
Françis Bonnefoy, the alternate reality version of Himaruya’s France. Reserved, loveless, melancholy... His only fascination in life is death— his death. Generally rare to smile, apart from a laugh or two that develops from others’ stupidity, happiness fills his bones as he imagines the goriest of his ends— broken bones, drowning, electric chairs, cut to pieces, etc. This disturbing fascination began when Prussia was dissolved, but yet still remained as a person. It amazed Françis how he could still live despite the fact that he was no longer a nation, sparking an immense curiosity in the idea of death.
France poses as the main doctor, mental examiner, and experimenter among the nations, often working with his ungrateful son. Canada is quick to escape out of the work, only to be replaced with a curious England. Being the opposite of their precursors, Françis and Arthur do not hate each other (apart from the bit of distaste from Arthur’s nuisance stupidity), and instead often work together as annoying as it may be for France. Françis looks to Arthur as more of a test subject than a real friend, using him as a way of avoiding money problems. Despite their master-servant relationship, Arthur does his best to stand up for France and provide him care, believing that he is so distant because he is lonely— France obviously denies these claims.
Reasons for Creation: cosplay and/or mini-comic
Explanations for certain head-canons:
I’d like to start by saying: I wanted to create my own version of France since my idea of his other version does not exactly mimic the generally accepted 2p France. I had begun drawing out his design some time ago, but he lacked a real personality— that was until I came across the song Such Horrible Things by Creature Feature (thank you =MirageMasaki~!) I thought that the song fit my idea of disturbed better than I could ever convey by writing up a real personality description. The fascination in death and experimentation, specifically brutal ones, stems from my own morbid curiosity which came about soon after learning of Josef Mengele, a Nazi doctor who worked in Auschwitz with mostly genealogy experiments. I will *hopefully* be writing a short mini-comic which can help to better express some of his personality (mostly centered on him and England and his experiments). Now we can get to some quick explanations:
“believed to have feelings for America”: I thought that since the French are said to hate America more than almost any other group of people, that his alternate reality version may instead have a thing for him. (Not to mention FrUS being a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine.) The idea of his unrequited love came to mind recently and I have been unable to escape the head-canon.
“over-observant”: I actually believe France to be a very observant character… well, as far as peoples’ feelings go. My 1p!France head-canon has him as being fairly observant of others, but very careless and easily bored during meetings; 2p is just the opposite—he is careless of others, but very involved in studies and meetings (until things don’t go as he would like… then he can become quite sarcastic and tends to ignore others.)
“ungrateful son”: You should know how the 2p! Canada acts… I have always believed that no matter what has happened in the Franco-Canadian past, that Canada will always hold a special place in his heart for his dear papa—but not in this world. 2p!Matthew couldn’t care less about his father’s research, or his father for that matter, and honestly, neither could Françis. The two generally push each other away to do their own things so they don’t have much of a father-son relationship… unless Arthur can help it.
“Françis and Arthur do not hate each other”: No, this does not mean they are in love with each other or anything of the sort—they simply don’t fight like an old married couple like their 1ps do. Yes, England is very concerned for France and has grown to love him dearly, but France has almost no interest in Arthur whatsoever—at least nothing that he admits to... yet. Because of how often they are around each other, England has gained some knowledge about Françis, which he tends to use against him—as will be shown in the mini-comics.
