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

ah. now here's a wee problem. I rather like how Gambit is drawn and am totally for major hotness. HOWEVER. i have read a lot of logan/gambit and dammit. his characterisation by most writers consistently sucks. they manage to overfeminise him in lieu of Wolverine or some such (where how he is drawn in the comics i have seen is rather uber masculine, not like movie Hugh Jackman, but like Brad Pitt in Fight Club, but with a staff weapon and a long coat) and use all the rather pithy and pathertic quotes that the writers use and to ill affect. (rant over). Otherwise i would like to read if you were to write him. I don't knwo anything of Cajun either. The character is really interesting with this bizarre past/present/future thing going on and most people i've read revolve endlessly around his backstory, redemption and abuse by Sinister. Not to mention is canon romance with Rogue (use what you will/think what you will, but i don't go there).
Maybe (discard as will) the road to go is to write more street speak or southern American New Orleans (don't know what that means either).
Well. i havn't been any help.
Sorry.
Hope you work it out.

Wow.. I thought everyone was in love with Logan/Remy fic in the xmen fandom. I haven't read any so can't comment, and frankly I don't intend to swing that way .. least not yet :D Maybe after the Wolverine movie.. you never know, I do adore Taylor Kitsch a lot so it MIGHT happen ;) But let's see.

Thank you for the tips of the accent! Really need some of those, esp for the next chapter. I'll try to work it in best as I can, and hope nobody gets disappointed or bitchy hehe ;)

cheers hon
