I know I have other obligations to tend to, but I hate leaving unfinished work floating around my harddrive. This is an older comic from a few weeks ago already that I finally got around to coloring. Over the course of their character development so far, Louis and James's dynamic has gone through several changes, and I think has evolved for the better. This comic better explains their canonical relationship.
James is no homophobe, and his hatred towards Louis stems as a result of his patriotism to England and obligations to the law (government). Given how I just finished a 5,700+ word dissertation on organized religion and homosexual discrimination, Santiago is now the character that has more issue with Louis's "foppishness", out of a sense of disgust more than anything.
Not that it won't stop James from using that word, if only because Richard Johnston has such a wonderful way of spitting out those insults.--Sak
