Speak posh please by Peachdust Speak posh please by Peachdust
From Agatha Christie's "The Murder on the Links"(1923):
"Now I am old-fashioned. I have no patience with the modern neurotic girl who jazzes from morning till night, smokes like a chimney, and uses language which would make a Billings-gate fishwoman blush!"

But in this case, Alek's the one blushing. As a soldier and as the daring person she is, Deryn sure would swear quite a bit... Alek wouldn't, I reckon. I stand with him on that one c:

For some reason the fact that Alek is covering Bovril's ears and Bovril is crossing his arms like he wanted to hear what foul words Deryn was screaming just made me so happy lol.

I don't even know this fandom, but something about this picture...it's just great. Love the colors and the inking, and Deryn's suit especially. :D

And the Agatha Christie quote is an excellent bonus. That line definitely made me laugh when I read Murder on the Links. Oh, Hastings.

Oh, well, "Leviathan"'s the fandom:) It's three books by Scott Westerfeld for young adults. He re-writes WWI using the steampunk genre, through the eyes of two protagonists: Deryn, who pretends to be a boy so she can fly in the Air Navy, and Alek, who (fictionally) is the son of the archiduque Franz Ferdinand who has to flee from Austria.

And thank you!:DI'm so glad you liked the Agatha Christie in it, I still haven't finished Murder on the Links yet. I'm using my "little grey cells" to catch the murderer before Poirot does:XD:

Believe it or not, I'm not technically done with Links either. I put it aside for an extended period of time so I could read the Lord Peter Wimsey series. Now I'll probably have to begin the whole thing over if I'm going to have any chance of piecing the clues together!

And the Leviathan series actually sounds awesome. I swear, whenever I'm in doubt about who wrote a YA series, the author always turns out to be Scott Westerfield. :XD: It's about time I actually read some of his stuff.

Oh yes, I know how that rolls. I do take a long time to read Agatha Christie's novels, which is a bit embarrassing:XD:Lord Peter Wimsey's on my list.

Yeah, Westerfeld's brilliant, and the books are beatifully illustrated by Keith Thompson[link]. It'd be lovely if you read it:nod:They're great books, set in lots of different parts of the globe.

Thank you(:I'm sure you're familiar with their personality types by now XD I don't remember exactly how old-fashioned Alek is in the first book though, he sort of "grows" after that. Oooh wait I have to be careful not to give you any spoilers. Still no Behemoth?

AH why didn't you tell me!:noes:Behemoth was great, I loved how Westerfeld separated Alek and Deryn for a bit. Oh and all the times Deryn's about to tell Alek she's a girl but never really does... But in Goliath everything's going to wrap itself up. Tesla's showing up too, you'll se how cool he is:XD:
