History 101: Surprise by laureng2 History 101: Surprise by laureng2
Featuring: Giacomo Casanova! Chevalier D'eon de Beaumont! and Oscar Wilde!

Oscar always picks the perfect time to walk in with witty commentary ;) And he's never going to let Casanova live this down >:3

I've been hard at work on those sprites, so this was a little something for the watchers! I've also got those requests done, all I needs is a scanner D:

Oh and for those who are new to my crack comics, lol, historical figures are back from the dead and hanging out! 11 Teams with 8 people each. United States, France, Britain, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Russia, Germany, Portugal, Austria, and Hungary. Together they fight people like Hitler, Elizabeth Bathory and more!

This is going to sound typical, but I absolutely love "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "The Importance of Being Earnest". Those stories are soo amazing! XD

lol hilarious xDDDD

I keep wondering if in the end, D'eon was a woman or man, cuz technically he was a man with an undeveloped system so he lived as a woman o_o or something xD
So one can never really tell o_o

I read about him, and I think he was totally a man, but mentally he felt he was a woman. So after Louis XV died and he was no longer needed in the Dragoons, he could dress as a woman. And all his friends bought him a new wardrobe! After that though he had to help sustain himself by winning fencing tournaments and he was the "first woman" to do so. ^-^

Oh Oscar.
Best timing EVER.

Although I think D'eon's quickchange panel is my favorite. I can kind of picture him skipping merrily off down the hall after that. XD

Wasn't Casanova bisexual?

Was he? I just started reading his memoirs to know more about him. So far he's only had sex with women, but this could change everything! Good news for Oscar lol
Reply
:iconfalleniceangel:
FallenIceangel Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Yep. ^^

While he was a lady's man, he had relationships with men as well that usually lasted a lot longer than any of those with women.

I'd go in more detail but it's been a good while since I read up on him. XD Been meaning to watch that BBC series about him that stars David Tennant. Only saw the opening of the first episode where he was running from the husband... and I'll stop there before I ramble on too much. ^^U

How about this then, since the comic kinda makes him look straight. Oscar is the the one that wins him over makes him bi X3 Remember, these are crack comics so anything goes :D

YAY! It is Fin!! The eye-twitching cracked me up. And Oscar at the end. Oh Oscar.
Speaking of Oscar, Kenny and I were watching "Project Runway" and this designer named (I kid you not) "Austin Scarlet" came on there.
Straight out of a Victorian comic making fun of gay people or something of that nature. He was magnificent. Had the cravat and everything.

Project Runway is on Bravo! It's probably the only "reality" show I'll ever watch. Because it's about creativity.
