♕ onze; [accidental video] (chip event END) [backdated to the 24th]  
[England's fist has just crashed into France's face. The Frenchman lies on his back, dressed in something out of the late 1700's. His ornate collar is distinctly drenched in blood, but not from this fight.

His hands flash out and grip England's wrists and--something is so strange to him, strange enough that he doesn't retaliate--until his ire flashes abruptly after the pause, unforgiving; he clenches England's wrists harshly and uses the other man's weight against him, flinging him off to the side without letting go in order to bring him crashing against the ground.]


Bloody fucking Christ--! [England hits the ground hard, the hesitation of shock giving France enough opportunity to seize his pistol and strike England repeatedly with it, heavy blows crashing the wood and metal into the Englishman's face that is easily covered in blood under the onslaught of France's anger. England's knee shoots up, attempting to land a blow between France's legs, he's swearing and thrashing, spitting blood violently.]

--Goddammit Francis! Piss-drinking filthy bastard--

[Despite England's blows landing, France's fury is undeterred. He scrambles to his feet and swings his heavy boot with a crushing force to England's side. Despite his bleeding foot, gushing and bruised face, England claws at the ground again and begins to scrape to his feet with a snarl.]

[France spins and kicks him back again, only to stomp down and grind his heel into one of England's hands with a sickening crunch of the bones in England's hand and fingers.

The other nation convulses in pain and he screams.]


Now what do you say to the fires of revolution? Are they so inconsequential now, Angleterre?

--!
[While England rolls to cough and spit blood, France finally notices that his little device seems to be glowing. He crosses to it and kneels down, easily turning his back to England, who is struggling to rise to his feet.

His neck, as mentioned, is coated in blood, soaking through his thick and ornate layers and the bandages that wrap around up to his chin. England's blood, however, has been splattered across France's face.]


Oh. Has this box shown this to everyone? My sincerest apologies. I will, what is the phrase... I will shut it off immediately.

[But not before, when England is finally on his feet, France smiles handsomely at the communicator before he glances back, aims his pistol, and fires; England falls with an anguished shout, clutching his shoulder, and the feed ends.]

[ooc note: LAST REAL EVENT POST. Apologizing so hard for slow/late tags, I was informed I need surgery in Nov and then got a nasty cold--in any case, will be backtagging so feel free to hit the others up as you will!

OPTION A: Having France answer still during his event, technically--so it will be France during the year 1794. He's a bit unhinged uh-- ICly this will be a few hours after.

OPTION B: France will answer the next morning, back to normal. Pick which one you'd like.

Action is only available for those in Latimir! If you're so inclined.]

[And the next day, Francis will hear someone knocking on the door to his apartment.]

[France answers the door shaved and in a dress and shawl. He actually looks rather good in it but that isn't the point.

He was not expecting Rosemary to come to his door.

Why did he fall for it?!]

England | Rosemary Kirkland: Classroom romance?!hullonurse on October 29th, 2011 01:57 am (UTC)
[Rosemary looks him up and down. Once. Twice.]

... Are we certain you're the male version? [Look, it is hard to be witty when you're tired and stressed and unprepared.]

Do I not look wonderful, Rosemary?
England | Rosemary Kirkland: Fly to the moon and back.hullonurse on October 29th, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
[Sighs.] Well, you certainly seem like you've recovered, at least, that will have to do.
crotchroses on October 29th, 2011 02:08 am (UTC)
I will take that as a "yes"! [He flips his wonderfully long hair back.]
England | Rosemary Kirkland: Grrrrr damnit.hullonurse on October 29th, 2011 02:23 am (UTC)
... That's it then?
crotchroses on October 29th, 2011 02:26 am (UTC)
What's what? Did you come here expecting me to cry? [He opens the door all the way and waves Rosemary in. If they're going to argue, he may as well be a good host.]

Come inside, I will make you a pot of tea.
England | Rosemary Kirkland: Fly to the moon and back.hullonurse on October 29th, 2011 02:28 am (UTC)
[Not to cry, no. But some reaction other than pretending he was fine would have been nice. Or an apology or a thank you or even anger.]

[So she huffs and goes inside, arms crossed.]
You are all caught up then?
crotchroses on October 29th, 2011 02:33 am (UTC)
Oui.

[He places his hands on his hips. Which is something he normally does, but this time it... it looks different.]

If you're uncertain about my gender, then I'll take that as a compliment to my skills and inform you that you're so very allowed to check and make sure.

England | Rosemary Kirkland: What is lovehullonurse on October 29th, 2011 02:35 am (UTC)
No thank you, dear. [It's not like she finds him oddly attractive in that or anything. She's still mad at him.]

Francis, why are you wearing a dress? ... Where did you even get that?
crotchroses on October 29th, 2011 02:39 am (UTC)
Why not? ... Spero. [He raises his nose and regards her with a shifty eye-glance.]

If you wanted a different reaction you should have arrived sooner.

[France's irritation and anger are manifesting in snubbing Rosemary while simultaneously being hospitable. He stalks off to the kitchen to make tea--he can talk to her from there.]
England | Rosemary Kirkland: pic#113544291hullonurse on October 29th, 2011 02:42 am (UTC)
[She follows him anyway, still glaring.] I didn't say I wanted any specific reaction. Don't get the wrong impression, I'm only here to make sure this whole mess is over with. It's not as if I was worried.
crotchroses on October 29th, 2011 02:47 am (UTC)
It's over with. [His response is short and painfully brief as he sets the water to boil and seizes two chipped mugs from his cupboard.]

Ah, this stove... I do miss modern conveniences. Please, sit down. I may have some bread left.
England | Rosemary Kirkland: pic#113544372hullonurse on October 29th, 2011 02:54 am (UTC)
... Good.

[Sits down. Then stands up again and heads toward the stove.] Let me take care of that.
crotchroses on October 29th, 2011 03:09 am (UTC)
Non! Non, sit! Sit sit sit. [He waves Rosemary off vehemently.]

Are you going to tell me why you really visited? Worried, was it... [France snorts while cutting the bread with a small knife.] Of course you were worried! For your own sake, mm? Like the rest of the nations, wanting me to disappear or fall under their rule because they do not stop and think.

This is okay! This is fine, I am not offended. I have returned to the ever so stable twenty-first century, fifth republic--fifth in my collection, as Arthur put it!--The age of empires is long gone.

It's natural, to protect oneself, even here. I understand.

[And he does. But that doesn't stop him from feeling bitter.]
England | Rosemary Kirkland: Don't you read?hullonurse on October 29th, 2011 03:34 pm (UTC)
[Wait, what fifth what happened to the fourth?

But that aside... After all that time spent worrying over this idiot, having the whole thing dismissed so simply is rather insulting. And annoying.]
Idiot. As if I'd want French soil under my rule. And I never said anything about your disappearing. Don't just decide what my motives might be for me on your own.

If I was concerned for you, it would firstly be because I decided to make myself responsible for your health and safety during that ordeal and I take my responsibilities seriously. Secondly it would be because yesterday you beat a man half to death and don't pretend he deserved it. Protecting myself doesn't come into it, I was never in any danger. Thirdly- [ She thought he might actually be upset about hurting Arthur. Enough to make her forgive him. And he'd said her presence was comforting before.] Hm.

... I don't see what I've done to make you so upset.
crotchroses on October 29th, 2011 06:36 pm (UTC)
As I said, the age of empires is long over. [He stares at the boiling water. Well, the sort of boiling water. It needs to boil faster! Stupid lack of modern conveniences....]

... And I am not pretending he deserved it. If I am not to decide your motives, as you put it, then you will not pretend to know mine. Except, ma cherie, I do know your motives, and the motives of the others. Romana, Romano, Prusse, even Amerique. I know what drives nations to do what they do. Please Rose, it breaks my heart to hear you pretend to act so human.

[It's at this point when he realizes he's leaning on the counter, clenching the edges of it so firmly that his knuckles have gone white. He takes a long breath and his shoulders droop slightly.]

... I said it was good and fine. I understand. We can leave it at that, mm?
England | Rosemary Kirkland: Don't be told what you wanthullonurse on October 29th, 2011 10:17 pm (UTC)
Not mine.

I'm not pretending to be anything other than what I am, and I am a nation. But that doesn't give you an excuse to act as though you know me that well. [She doesn't know what she was expecting to get out of this.]

Don't bother with the tea, if you're fine that's all I needed to know. [Turns and starts to walk away.] Good day.

[He turns, leaning back against the counter, and folds his arms. Admittedly it's probably a bit comical if because it looks like a woman speaking with a man's voice, but whatever, France has no shame.]

Rosemary. We aren't finished. [You come into his apartment and huff around, he won't just let that go okok. :( ]
England | Rosemary Kirkland: Fly to the moon and back.hullonurse on October 30th, 2011 12:06 am (UTC)
[Spins back around, hands on her hips.] Oh? I wasn't aware there was anything left to say.
crotchroses on October 30th, 2011 12:08 am (UTC)
I haven't even begun to speak, Angleterre. As far as I'm concerned, neither have you.
England | Rosemary Kirkland: Grrrrr damnit.hullonurse on October 30th, 2011 12:10 am (UTC)
