Giuseppe, detto Peppino
Fandom: Giovanni Guareschi's The Little World of Don Camillo stories
Genre: Mostly comedy with less funny bits and children hitting each other (is that a genre?)
Rating: G
Summary: Giuseppe Bottazzi wasn’t always called Peppone; in fact, when was little, he really was little, and everybody called him Peppino.
Gino and Lina Bottazzi’s second-oldest boy had a few characteristics that his schoolmates had long decided made him a good chief.
First off, he was absolutely fearless (except where his parents were concerned, because Gino Bottazzi had arms like tree trunks and Lina Bottazzi could send even the boldest not-quite-nine-years-old cowering with a single look). The schoolmistress, Signora Cristina, had her hands full with the boy, who showed up in class with his pockets bulging with tadpoles or toads, hid sparrows’ nests inside his desk (with the occasional sparrow when he could get his hands on one), and

Papa Bear Awards 2015: Short comedy
Papa Bear Awards: Best short comedy (1000-5000 words)

This was one of the quickest ideas I had for the PBAs - comedy = Schultz in a red nose. And Newkirk having gently conned/manipulated him into wearing one (they managed to get Schultz to jump out of a plane, convincing him to wear a red nose is a walk in the park after that!) ;) (Wink) 
Papa Bear Awards 2015: Episode
Papa Bear Awards: Best story based on an episode
The reason I didn't post here for a loooong time is that I saw a couple of instances of artwork posted on DA that was stolen, slapped on material, and sold without the artist's consent or even knowledge. I tend to post art on Tumblr anyway, so it put a damper on my posting here. Then I figured that if I put my name and blog address as a watermark I might be safe. So... Shrug 

I was a little pressed by time (my own fault) for the PBAs, with no idea what to do for the “episode” drawing (there are so many great scenes I could draw from!), when I remembered I’d already sketched/pencilled a scene from “The Great Impersonation”, one of my favourite episodes, here. So I inked, coloured and textured it :)

For context, Newkirk, Carter and LeBeau have been caught and sent to another Stalag, so Hogan talks Schultz into impersonating Colonel Klink (hence the uniforms) and spring them up. Schultz ends up performing admirably (schnapps helped a lot) and the boys triumphantly ride into the sunset drive back to camp in a truck… And Schultz faints :D

Papa Bear Awards 2015: Challenge

Papa Bear Awards: Best story based on a challenge

Funny how some images were so hard to find for some categories… and this one practically popped up in my mind the minute I set out to do the “challenge” category. Because let’s face it, Marya is challenge personified, not to mention she loves a good challenge. She’s a polarising character: she’s a manipulator, a shameless flirt, prone to ham it up if necessary and a master at mental speed chess. Honestly, no wonder Hogan gets nervous whenever she waltzes in. She’s a more reckless version of him :D

There’s probably something top-secret in the case. Or maybe it’s a bomb. In any case, Hogan daahling, you’d better start scheming fast…

And now for something completely different

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 20, 2012, 4:56 AM

There can never be too many nods and winks to the Monty Python on the Internet. Just sayin'.

As it turns out (and as witnessed by my suddenly better stocked "Fics and snapshots" folder), my spark for writing made a surprise return at the end of last year; since then I've been writing frantically in case it's temporary and goes away again (lately I've been slowing down and consequently been afraid that the urge to write was getting diluted into other interests/fandoms... typical).

Two things have really been a big encouragement, though: the fact that I now know that I can actually complete a chaptered story (that had never happened before!), and the Papa Bear Awards. Every year, readers/writers of Hogan's Heroes fanfiction hold an election for the best HH fanfiction in the past year, and I'm still reeling (in a very good way!) from the fact that people actually nominated, then voted for my story, Soul Food. I won Bronze for "Best Story of 2011" (!!!),  Silver for "Best Long Comedy" and "Most Unique Story", and Gold (!!!!!!) for Best Portrayal of a Canon Character (LeBeau, and I'm told Schultz - the other character I was nominated for in this category - actually made fourth place!). I mean, wow. I still can't believe it. It's a bit daunting, too, because now I'm afraid the stories I have cooking (in plot bunny form, or the ones I actually got started on) won't be that good... Which goes to show that sometimes you just have to switch off your self-doubt and questioning and just write the darn thing. We'll see where it goes from here :)

In other less cheerful, Real Life-related news, I'm still on the dole, because librarian jobs are hard to come by where I live... Technically, it should mean more time to write/doodle, but somehow, it doesn't much. I'll have to kick myself in the rear to get at least this kind of activity going. It doesn't bring bread on the table, but it's something that makes me happy. I guess it's important. And who knows? Maybe some day I'll be able to write something original. A girl can dream :lol:

Checked into the Pottermore thing (I still like "Belphegor" better than "FlameScarlet5995", but we're not allowed to choose our own names) and it's a lot of fun - except I'm stuck at the end of Philosopher's Stone and I have no idea 1) if the "Chamber of Secrets" part is accessible yet, and/or 2) how to access it. Little help?

That's all (for now), folks :)

I'm a 30-something French girl who lives in the South West of France, doodles a lot and likes to sing in her shower. Hi there :)

I mostly do fanart, although every once in a while I'll get a picture in my head that hasn't got anything to do with fandoms. Please don't repost my art or save it elsewhere without my permission. My art Tumblr is the-french-belphegor dot tumblr dot com; I usually post more art there than on DA. Can't wait to see you around!

Feel free to peek around my little gallery, and don't forget to leave a comment if you liked or didn't like something to tell me why :)

okay i noticed that your profile says your from France so i was wondering if you could tell me what 'I've been saved by an Angel' translates to in French. I've used Google but when i translate it back into English to double check the translation it comes out as 'I was saved by an angel' was not been and perhaps that it is the right translation but i want to be sure yay know?
The-French-Belphegor Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Sure! It depends on the context, though. Like, who is the speaker's gender? It makes a difference in the way you write the sentence (and sometimes also pronounce, depending on the verb).

So I'd say "J'ai été sauvé par un ange" if the speaker is male, and "J'ai été sauvée par un ange" if the speaker is female. But honestly, the sentence, while grammatically correct, sounds a little heavy and clunky. It could also be "C'est un ange qui m'a sauvé-e" or "Un ange m'a sauvé-e." Could you give me more context around the sentence?

my mom was a big Hogan's Hero's fan when she was a kid and passed it to me XD
any who's i want to write a short story about lebeau falling in a river and having his sorry butt saved by newkirk. lebeau would be dased and hallucinating and say 'i've been saved by an angle' in french and newkirk wouldn't know what in the world he said. later while lebeau is laying on his cot passed out newkirk would ask kinch what lebeau said and kinch would translate and once lebeau woke up newkirk would just start hounding him never letting him live it down XD
The-French-Belphegor Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
No offence to Newkirk (love him lots), but mistaking him for an angel? Wow, LeBeau must be pretty damn dazed :D Okay, "Un ange m'a sauvé" works pretty well here, IMO. If he's replying to someone (even vaguely in a barely-awake way) "C'est un ange qui m'a sauvé" works, too. Hope that helps! And don't hesitate if you have other translations, I love doing that :aww:
