X-Men fans!! Need a little help..

So the reason I'm unable to finish the next chapter of "In the beginning" is this.. I need to introduce a character in this chapter because see I promised a reader that I would :) And I did have a slot open that I could fit any mutant into and decided to just as well use this guy instead of an OMC. And so I started researching the character because I've never really paid attention to him before, but now that I am, paying attention that is, I think I might really grow to like this guy :D (especially since he is being played by a total hottie in the big W movie!! *squees*) And so now, I really really wanna write him in :) - just a small cameo part really, but the problem is.. for the life of me I can't figure out how to write his accent! I've tried googling for examples and expressions but it's just not working. How the hell does one speak Cajun man?!?! ;)

SO that's the reason why I'm writing this post.. Could you guys please point me in the direction of some really good, well-written fics that you might have read, that feature this particular character talking? Just so I can get a sense of how to write his dialogue you know? And maybe if you know of any particular episodes of X-Men (the show) that I could find online, or video snippets of Cajun dialect, those would really help. Pretty pretty please? :)

PS: I'm still a Scott!girl mind you *narrows eyes* ;) This one just seems to be.. eh, coming in a close second :D:D:D

*gasm's for gambit*

Are you going to pair him with Rouge? I hate/love to say it, but I'm such a Rouge/Gambit fan that it hurts. Unfortunately I can't give any hints on how to write the accent, but if you're really and truely stumped, you can always cheat.

"His heavy accent twanging and tweaking his words so that no matter if he said heel or hill, it still sounded like hul" =D Yay for cheating!

Relax sweetie :) It's just a tiny cameo role.. I'm not looking to write a Remy epic or whatever really :D

"His heavy accent twanging and tweaking his words so that no matter if he said heel or hill, it still sounded like hul" =D Yay for cheating!

*giggles* That's precisely what I am going to do now hehe ;) cheers sweetie!

*wibble* Does that mean Remy's going to have a smaller part then Jean Grey? (I know your a Grey-girl and I'm sorry)

*snort* They cheated like that in Brokeback Mountain. (the book)

Uh, yeah hon. Very small part, sorry! :) Don't want to set the wrong expectations.. he has a part to play but not central to the series.

Besides, this Remy guy is really complicated!! With an even more complicated accent and a wildly sarcastic tone to boot! I don't know if I could ever do justice to this character.. :)

D'aww. =P But that's fine, I just hoped to feed the small Gambit/Rouge lizard that lives with the Wolvie/Scottzilla in my brain. *big glomp*

you've managed Dean haven't you? And Dean is a hard baby to manage <3
