Francis X Felicity ? by Kooskia Francis X Felicity ? by Kooskia
Kooskia (fancomic)
Akif Pirincci (characters)

Some time ago :iconpantherapardus1758: got the right for a gift/request by me and despite that first or later i will draw a feline character for him... (if he will decide about it XD) he said to be curious about the character of Sancta from Felidae book.

I've took this opportunity to realize this as a little comic for all the fans that love the pairing Francis X Felicity in Felidae...
I know lots fans love it and it's nice, but reading the books (and not only watching the cartoon) you may find that actually Felicity is a minor character if you see the whole series... and that Francis had many lovers/love interests (and Felicity wasn't one of the most evident..)

So... that's for all the Felidae fans ^^
Hope you will find it fun.... (some minor SPOILER from all the books here)

--------

I was still in doubt about the colours... soon i think it will be made a journal in Felidae Fanclub concerning Francis's colour...

---------

Found only now that there is a little mistake in last frame... it's "seventh" not "eight" book v.v (even if who know... i don't know what will happen in the eight one XD)

PLEASE IF YOU FAVE IT, COMMENT IT !!!!

Haha poor Francis,but seriously It sorta ticks me off when people think that every single animal is monogamous in real life,well I do give my animal characters love intrests but those animal characters do go off and do the do with other members of their species but are personally more attached to their love interest,but that's just me,since I'm human,writing about a sentient non-monogamous creature is sorta weird

Hey! First of all thanks for the big comment xD
Well... I think there are multiple ways to face the concept. In "Felidae", Francis is described behaving in this way more like a womanizer, without true "love interests" usually. This fit the character and at the same time match a bit the feline realism.

There is nothing bad to give a bit of "anthro" humanized behavior x3 But personally I find it a bit intriguing when an author manage to make more original solutions. I could suggest you multiple stories that face this thing: for once :iconrathacat: is a skilled author who wrote most of her books back in late '80s, and there she merged both love and attachment with realistic animal details (heat cycle etc.) in addition to some open-minded attitude. For example at some point two characters that love each other part away during the mating season out of fears of the resulting kits (different sub-races), but this doesn't prevent the female to mate with a random male and... the thing is described as natural, apparently accepted by both sides.


Another author here on Deviantart that implied it is :iconiron-lyons:
A more modern author, whose Erin Hunter's readers may follow. The main protagonists are "Lyons" (basically derivated from lions with some bit of anthropomorphic and other skills). Curiously the starting Pride of the female protagonist include the father/sire having 3 wives... and while a reader could expect it to be a issue about gender-role and traditionalism, it's instead accepted and not placed on a negative view. Only one is a true love's mate however.
I could adds also that the father is a very interesting and nice character to me.


A third book that face the topic is "Salome's Daughters" but... it's not particularly well-done ^^ (some flat villains, lack of character development etc...). It feature a cat-like society (a bit aristocratic) in England after humans downfall. Mating is particularly important in the plot, due dynastic successions, and while love it's included, curiously is a bit disconnected to the actual mating act: there are characters who love and care each other but mates with others for duty etc...
And while some
sadness it's included (in case of forbidden loves), there are unusual and curious episodes with loving partners that support and prompt the love-interest to mate with someone else...  simply because they cherish the love interest and want him/her to be happy.

One thing that I don't think Francis is taking into account is that a good chunk of the fandom (myself included) have only seen the movie rather than reading any of the books.  I'm sorry, I'm not much of a literature kind of person.

Well... I just wanted to show the thing ^^ Sadly the books are poorly known among fans, even if the first two has been translated in english v.v
This is a fan-art a friend made of the female character of book n°2 Francis..."meet" ^^

When I first watched the movie I was a big fan of that pairing, but now I'm not. Seems he only felt simpathy for her, not love.

Although I laughed durring this comic when Junior came in.

It's easy to be fans of such pairing expecially if one watch only the movie. The main thing it's that too easily people think as something that doesn't adapt with the character...
We can say that Francis is a "growing" character in the book, in the first one he say clearly that consider "cats love" as... cats love (=mating)
Only later he realize (feeling of being old) that a she-cat can actually turn in something of special as a stable mate..

(however, i really would love to chat with you sometimes x3 do you've msn? I've just realized to have made a mistake in this comic! D: in the last frame should be written "seventh" and not "eight" book v.v

"She's Italian and speaks Latin! You ignorant!" XD

Davvero bello, grazie!

Direi che questi colori vanno bene, si rifanno al film.
Come abbiamo avuto modo di discutere, disegnare Francis rosso non ha moltissimo senso perché il gatto che si trova nella copertina di alcune edizioni probabilmente non è lui, bensì... ne abbiamo parlato! XD

Forse ho capito cosa vuole dire quella specie di rebus nella quinta vignetta, ma aspetto una tua spiegazione dettagliata.

Fantastica la faccia di Junior nell'ultima vignetta! XD

Sì... tra l'altro ho cercato di fare un "mix" tra il film e la descrizione "bianco e nero" che si da di Junior ( e quindi di Francis) nel sesto e (ancora) nel settimo. Schirendo un pò il grigio e rendendo un pò più nero la parte scura..
Ma purtroppo lo scanner mi ha ulteriormente "ingrigito" il tutto :/

certo che è vero v.v Se era inventato lo scrivevo XD
Si chiama Junior... la madre Francis manco se la ricordava al momento, ed ha un piccolo ruolo nel terzo e quarto libro mentre è più importante nel sesto e settimo..
