Is one of them going to get eaton by a dinosaur?
Would the author stoop to making a joke as cheap as that? Well, sure, but that’s not the point! The point is to get everyone looking forward to seeing some gruesome violence 🙂
So someone’s getting attacked by something in the darkness?
Attacked by something in the darkness? Yes, a red herring.
“You have been eaton by a grue, better luck next time”
If a gruesome death includes dying slowly over a long period of time, I think a lifetime of Alice constantly communicating her disappointment at Milo can count, all without any successful homicide attempts. Just saying.
Do you think a “successful” homicide attempt would cheer her up?
Her no, it’d be like taking away her favorite toy. It’d probably cheer Milo up though.
Commencing involuntary chuckling 😉
Given his last name, my vote for “most likely to meet a gruesome end” is Lieutenant, sorry, Captain Eaton.
I do wonder if the Reverend Playfair was prone to breaking up schoolyard fights as a child!
Also, please tell Philo that there is no place to hide, no matter how much he looks.
If there was ever a time to hide behind your own shadow, it would be now
“No place to hide”? Not even in The Center of the Earth?
Assuming that’s a Navy uniform…
Philo really should have asked someone from the Army. That way, he’d already be wearing a red shirt.
Star Trek Redcoats. Does that count as a mixed metaphor?
I’ll be sad to see the reverend go, we hardly knew him! But I’m sure he lived a good, full life. May he rest in peace.
Poor Reverend Playfair. He didn’t even get to say his lines, and you’ve already killed him off.
Thing that scares me most is that Alice probably knows how to use both those weapons to great effect.
Are you sure she’s not just a paper tiger?
Don’t underestimate how painful paper cuts can be.
Also, she said “would you kindly lend me your sword.” He can’t resist.
He can resist? In the a double entendre sense?
Nah, it’s a Bioshock reference.
Dang it, now that you day that, that is a rather unusual way for her to hold her hand to receive the sword he’s currently holding in his hand.
On a more serious note and assuming she means the sword in his hand, is Alice left handed?
Left handed FTW
