I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Some military dude: We'll hang Laurence if you don't behave!
Jane: Nooooo! Wrong move!!!!!!
Temeraire after a warning growl: I'll take all the dragons following me and go to Napoleon and give him all the help I can if only they'll destroy you all. Your move. Go ahead and threaten him again...
Laurence: shuffles feet in silenced mortification.
Temeraire has been freaking me out all book, but never so much as now! And I'm loving it all.
