“No regard for how your actions affect others”? Well isn’t she one to talk.
I think that’s called ‘projection’. Is that right? Any psychobabble experts out there?
Psychobabble confirmed. Projection it is. Next up, let’s try some transference!
Bickering like they’ve been married for years.
They’ve been ‘together’ for most of their lives. Unconsumated, though. That’s a lot of built-up tension.
She does have a very nice cleavage…
Alice’s brazen display of cleavage might be a bit more French-Empire-inspired than English Regency fashions. Blame it on artistic license.
That’s nothing compared to the amount of leg she was showing a couple strips back. Scandalous! Dous she not realize there are impressionable children present! And an English bulter even! (He is outraged on the inside, but of course would never show it)
So we have Word of God that it was Artistic License. (No reall subset, except maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe history, but that’s a *cough* stretch).
Aha! She’s a spy for the french! We should’ve seen it coming!
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Bring out the mallet. 🙂
Charlotte has her priorities straight.
P.S. Strictly speaking, it should be “Charlotte and me”. (The way you tell is to leave out the other person and see if it sounds right — you wouldn’t say “commandeering this cabin for I”.) Of course, it’s a common mistake, and there’s no reason Alice might not make it herself.
I believe you could also say “Charlotte and myself” and still be correct (while sounding, perhaps, a bit more highbrow/upperclass than she would if she said “Charlotte and me”).
Heh, I use that method of telling which word to use quite often! 🙂
Well, he’s trying to run, but his responsibilities keep following him…
Hmm at this point all he needs to make his day complete is to go back to the bridge and find his father there with priest and guests.
Well, I’m still thinking that since Alice probably whopped the Reverend on the head, he may already be stashed aboard somewhere. Otherwise, the Captain could perform the ceremony maybe. Just how far down does England’s authority go? Before they are considered to be in “international dirt” I mean.
He’s stuffed inside the grandfather clock, don’t tell anyone!
Oh, I forgot to mention. I love how Charlie is good for any sort of thing as long as it’s entertaining. First, she tried to save Philo from her fun-sucking sister. But when that fails, she simply falls back to the next most entertaining alternative, supplying (M)Alice with humorous and hopefully non-lethal items she can use to hit Philo…
How helpful of her. She’s like a much more adorable, somewhat less malicious version of Roddy.
Malicious? Maybe. Mischievous? A bit. Adventurous and fun-loving? Definitely.
I just realized something. MERELY following his lead. Methinks the lady protests too much. And she acknowledges she follows his lead. Hmmmm.
