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
Gender: Male
Hair: Straight, slightly longer than Francis’s; blond fades to red
Eyes: Purple
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
*Quick* Background:
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:
:bulletblue: “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.
:bulletwhite: “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.)
:bulletred: “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.
:bulletpurple: “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.


If you like this version of 2p!France, feel free to make fanarts of him (with credit please) and send it my way~!! :heart:

He looks incredible~!

In my headcanon, 2P France is really France after being controlled by the Vichy dictator, thus explaining his homicidal interest, his twisted personality and hatred for romance.
I know we don't have the same headcanon, but what do you think of mine?
AlexanderGoodEnough Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That's actually a really interesting headcanon!

((Admin: This is actually a really cool design! It's awesome! I really like the hair and relationship with Canada, it makes sense! But once I was forced to take all of my negative traits and create a character based on my negative traits. This is really close to how it ended up but She ended up having 2P! England's level of insanity... I felt so friggin' guilty because of the things the character did. :iconlazycryplz:))
Seaxofxroses Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

AlexanderGoodEnough Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh my Prussia, I'm glad you like it so much :iconfrenchsquealplz: I'm actually hoping to do a cosplay of him myself, but am holding it off until after my trip to Canada (gonna be wasting money like a boss xD) So anyway, I'm glad you like it! And if you ever did have the chance to do a cosplay of him, I think I would die of happiness :love:
Seaxofxroses Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

StriatonTrioFan7 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012
Whoa..... he looks like the kind of guy i would hang out with (MAYBE) because the other france is just a plain scary perv =3=
AlexanderGoodEnough Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I would most definately hang out with him (and the normal France) >3< Why is France scary?
StriatonTrioFan7 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2012
because there waz this one episode where he tried to force england to marry him O3O
AlexanderGoodEnough Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Force is such a harsh word~ I like to think of it as blunt encouragement >w> But no, he scares you because of that? You do know France and England (Britain) got married only about 50 years later, consensually.
StriatonTrioFan7 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
O3o No.... i DID not know tht......I wonder how my friend will react to this XD She cosplays England, so yeah XD
AlexanderGoodEnough Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yup~ Entente Cordiale signed in 1904 and still going strong :D And OH MY PRUSSIA I would love to see the look on her face xD (I'm a France cosplayer by the way, so maybe you should mention that FRANCE told you xD)
StriatonTrioFan7 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
Well, she started to cry and she yelled 'NOW I WILL NEVER GET TO INVADE IS VITAL REGIONS!!' It was an awkward moment XD
AlexanderGoodEnough Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, dear xD England and your way with words.. all :iconfranceplz:

I read everything x____X But now I need to begin reading again because I forgot the information of the upper part :'D
In all honesty I have to say that I like your 2P Version more than Himaruyas Version.
I'm really not into the 2P thing because I simply can't get the whole peronally twist thing. But I actually do really love the design plus the whole explanation. I think I'll do some fanart later. :'D
And I feel somehow honored to be mentioned here. I'm glad I could help you (without even knowing that I helped xD). :3

I want my cake now ;A; And then I'll go and draw Fanart~ :3
AlexanderGoodEnough Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
KNHOBNLAFJOL YES I'm surprised anyone would actually read all of this.. especially someone who doesn't even speak English natively xD
OHMYPRUSSIA REALLY?! I feel honored :iconiloveyouplz:
I didn't really care for it at first either, but I started reading a little 2p fic and was really curious about the whole idea... and here I am today! I actually tend to find a major interest in personality twists, traits, etc. so this whole thing kind of came naturally to me~ And FANNNNNAAARRRRRTTTT HORRRRAAAYYYY :iconfrenchsquealplz:
You should feel honored! I've learned of a lot of cool songs thanks to your speedpaints (pictures, journals, etc.), but this one in paricular is absolutely amazing to me :love:

AnglaisRose Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I tend to read most of the descriptions x'D Plus it helps me learning English~
Yeah Really. I do always mean the things I say or write oÔ
I somehow am one of thsoe persons who do not like things when there is a big hype about it xD Now I think about reading a few fanfictions and slowly getting more into it. I simply don't like it when everyone is like: "OH MAI! HAVE U SEEN WHAT HIMARUYA DID? 2P DESIGNS! IT'S SOOO MEGA AWEZUM U HAVE TO LIEK IT NAO!!1!!1"
Yep Fanart 8D I simply need to get the necessary time to finish my planned pictures plus the ones that came to my mind just today x_x Gawd I'll never finish my forever growing to-do list xD
askjdflöjkasdfjl I can't believe that Someone acutally likes my choice of songs x'D My RL friends tend to tell me that I listen to strange music and should instead listen to something NORMAL. >>
Yeah, that song is amazing <3 When i randomly found it I couldn't stop listening xD
