Enfant De Tonnerre
Ozoneocean on Jan. 28, 2006
Weâ€™ve started up a weekly writerâ€™s challenge in the forums. Each week writers try writing a short fanfic based on the characters of a DD comic we choose for that week. The first comic is Two Moons. See the details and entries here. Itâ€™s a fun way to practise your writing ^_^
Latest page of Pinky TA updated on 27th January 2006. Here: Main site.
Theyâ€™re firing at that same cruiser again! They managed to damage it last time and now theyâ€™ve caught up to it to finish it off. Thereâ€™s a bit of a squall at sea and itâ€™s quite cold. The Enfant De Tonnerre sinksâ€¦ The death of a warship is a sad thing :(
Pinkyâ€™s all ready to leave; the scout is all painted up for the desert. Cc and Rasovich are discussing Ccâ€™s leaving as well.
Ah, Iâ€™m all batter after yesterday. I love this page, thereâ€™s something about the limited colour rangeâ€¦ Pinkyâ€™s not wearing lipstick here, for good reason. The S.S.V.5 had a paintjob here, mainly because thatâ€™s a better colour for the desert, but also because reproducing a camouflage pattern properly from all different angles is a real PAIN, it was bad enough on that cruiser.
Pinkyâ€™s not entirely correct when she alludes to the cruiserâ€™s name in relation to the storm. The name of course means â€œThunder Childâ€ (or â€˜child of thunderâ€™), that was in homage to the ironclad in H.G. Wellâ€™s War of the Worlds. I always thought it was a beautiful name. Plus, I think there was once a real French warship called the Tonnerre. Probably just a monitor. ^_^
Go to my main site for the latest work (27th January, 2006). Iâ€™m uploading one page a day with commentary and explanations here.
