Ahoy all! Get ready for the Cornelius backstory mini chapter! The script is done and it’s going to be a challenging 10 pages art wise, but I’m excited and hope you are as well~ Happy March!
Hey let’s do this ask for Cornelius cause he’s important too Just to warn you tho, he’s kind of a rich dick
Ahoy all! Sorry for the lack of updates here! I have been TRAPPED at the airport the last two days and I can’t update the site from my phone! The LAST page of Vol 4 will be up tonight as i am FINALLY back home in NYC today! Thank you for your understanding and worry that i may have died~ In the future, if there isn’t an update here on a post day- check the tumblr as that is much easier for me to update on the go from my phone.
Happy friday y’all!
Writing these has made me realize that if the 2 Ship Jumper couples ever went on vacation together, Ellis and Piper would have a delightful time visiting great sites of art, history, and architecture while Cornelius and Rhinston slept in then hit the pub early.
Hey let’s do (LOL) Rhinston!
I got this great ask on the tumblr and thought I’d share it here as well!
Just out of curiosity, in your mind, what would the characters of ship jumper sound like? Accent wise and if you were to compare them to any real-life voices.
Oh my goodness I LOVE this question!!! All 4 main characters voices are so clear in my mind but finding good references for them is proving to be such a challenge! Ellis and Cornelius are super posh. Even though Clochette is based on France I image them all with very classic “Merchant & Ivory” english accents. The closest I can come to Ellis is Tom Hollander as Lord Beckett in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, a lighter lilting voice but very proper and dripping with distain (what I’m trying to get across having his dialogue always in italics LOL). Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) is right on the money for Cornelius, beautiful aristocratic voice to go with his beautiful aristocratic face. Piper is younger and brighter so somewhere kind of between Dan Radcliffe and Elijah Wood. If you youtube any interviews with Tom Daley (UK diver who is also the closest real life visual for Piper) it’s in that vicinity but he’s a little too posh for ‘from a poor village’ Piper.
Rhinston is a challenge… he needs to be deep and sound angry all the time even when he’s not. He also is one of the poor folk, so less put together then the others. Lymeswold is more ‘rough and tumble’ of a nation so the accent is much rougher. Richard Armitage as Thorin in the Hobbit movies is so close, but his voice is still a little too lyrical? Russell Crowe when he’s doing his brooding hero man voice with a dash of Gerard Butler in 300.
