siege of orleans

OMFG THAT’S RIGHT. Loki accidentally swapped the pictures on this one and the Bugthoven’s 9th cards. Heeeee.

joan is back!

I haven’t gotten to use the Joan of Bugg tag in forever! (This was a bad day for drawings and liquids, I’m guessing.)


Left that a little late, didn’t you, French justice system?

she’s back!

You guys! We haven’t had a Joan of Bugg drawing in forever. SO STOKED.

back to Joan

Ah, and we’re back to the Buggs’ favorite martyr! (For those just joining us: The Buggs have no clue what it meant to be burnt at the stake, and just figured it involved marshmallows, and, probably, s’mores.) Transcript: Mrs Bugg is looking fetching in her bow-topped platemail getup, despite the fact that her hands are shackled together and she is being led towards a bonfire by Mr Bugg, today playing the part of a church bishop. He is rocking an ankh-emblazoned bishop hat, and is waving has several marshmallows pre-impaled on a many-branched stick, to be ready for the burning. The text reads: “Janubugg 3, 1431: Joan of Bugg is handed over to Bishop Pierre Bugchon … for the burning at the stake.”  

hey, guess who?

Ah, what the hell. Let’s give her her own category. Transcript: So. Once again, the Buggs are cosplaying Joan of Bugg fighting an epic battle. Mrs Bugg does the honors, atop a rearing horse, holding her traditional ankh-emblazoned shield and hoisting a sword. She is wearing sunglasses, because of course she is a rockstar. She is facing an army with the most woebegone expressions on their faces, their flag in the dust, swords pointing downward in defeat. Mr Bugg, representing the Joan of Bugg fanclub, clasps his hands in adoration while hearts of love spew from his head. The text reads: “Junebugg 18, 1429: Buggench forces under Joan of Bugg defeat the Bugglish army at Buggtay.”  

the buggs’ favorite historical figure

I might need to have a chat with them about their Joan of Bugg fetish. Hopefully it’s innocent admiration and not something more sinister. On the other hand, it’s not like they can stalk her in the grave. Can they? Transcript: Mrs Bugg is Joan of Bugg, atop her antennae’d horse, waving her sword and protected by her be-ankhed shield, while armored buggs in her army lead the captured prisoner away in shackles. In the background, Mr Bugg shows his love of Joan with head-hearts. The text reads: “Junebugg 12, 1429: Hundred Buggs War; Joan of Bugg leads the Bugrench army in their capture of the city and commander William de la Bugg, in the second day of the Battle of Bugreau.”
