Les Petits Meurtres d'Agatha Christie by The-French-Belphegor
Les Petits Meurtres d'Agatha Christie

Les Petits Meurtres d’Agatha Christie (link) is probably my favourite Agatha Christie adaptation with David Suchet’s Poirot (and a lingering nostalgic-tinted fondness for Ustinov’s Death on the Nile). The two (original) characters come from Petits meurtres en famille (link), a TV adaptation of Hercule Poirot’s Christmas set in 1939 France. The audience loved them so much that a TV series was made and other novels were adapted into episodes set in Northern France roughly between 1935 and 1939.

So here’s Inspecteur (equivalent of DI in Britain) Emile Lampion and his boss Commissaire (DCI) Jean Larosière. Larosière loves gourmet cooking and classical literature (he knows his Shakespeare and his Racine); he’s quite intelligent, knows it, and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Fortunately, his DI Lampion is no fool - but he can be awkward, clumsy, is not as well-read as his superior officer and is less prone to “eureka!” moments. He’s also methodical (with a great interest in the then-budding scientific police), thorough, kind-hearted, and a rather level-headed young man. (He’s also gay, which was even less easy in that day and age than it can be now. But it’s one of his defining traits, not the main one.)

They have a rocky but heartfelt kind of father-son relationship and I love ‘em a lot :)


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-year-old 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.

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 :)

I readone of your stories the one about the dog *sniffles* I'm an animal lover at heart, if I were Newkirk I'd feel horrible. Actually I'd feel that way if anything simaller happened.... which I hope never happenes. Great now I'm turning into Carter XD
The-French-Belphegor Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
There are worse people to turn into :) And yeah, the one with the dog was... poor Newkirk. Sometimes I feel bad about what I put these characters through (If was the worst yet, though) :/
himymfan Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
