Franklin a Paris 1776 by saphirewings Franklin a Paris 1776 by saphirewings
Random sketch
Franklin in Paris 1776. Based on a true story.
And no, of course people didn't learn language this way in XVIIIth century xD And song "ca ira" was created 14 years later, but indeed main line was inspired by Benji's words (the only thing he could say in French in 1776 xD)

He came to Paris to ask for financial backing from France in American Revolution.

French lines:
first pannel: "How is it going in America? Are you succeeding in your Revolution?"
last pannel: lines from song "ca ira" tha means "It's gonna be alright x3 The aristocracy on the lantern!
it's gonna be alright x3 we're gonna hang them! "

No problem! Ben Franklin is my favourite American, did any of your parents ever tell you, "guests are like fish, after three days they start to stink"? Well he made-up that saying! Plus he was all around awesome and a regular persnickety bastard which we, as Poles, can truly appreciate...at least I think so! :D

As in description xD It's very hard to compose such difficult line as "ca ira" if you don't speak French at all :P

but it's REALLY TRULLY BASED on a history xDDD I've done almost nothing! It's not my fault that Benji (:heart:) came to Paris and he answered each question with "ca ira", cause he really COULDN'T say anything else xDDD
It was quick sketch about me learning on French exams xD Franklin in the fifth pannel it's how I will speak/look like during speaking exam xD that's how I will act and what will be happening in my mind xD And I will end up with hiper-simple phrases that will be absolutely irrelevant, but my making them up will last ages xDDD
