This is brilliant and true! I love Granby, he is wonderful! I was reading each book more afraid then the next that "Oh my gods, this is it. The final time, Granby's done for!" It was so stressfull and wonderful at the same time! I really hope that Ms. Novik doesn't kill him I will have a fit! Anyways this made me laugh out loud, you have such a great style, I love the facial expressions!
<spoilers>Arm nearly torn off as the ship he's on explodes, almost married off to an empress (despite his objections and homosexuality), having that same arm amputated after it gets gangrenous, and all the while being dragged through new and exciting wilderness full of new and exciting things that want to kill him.</spoilers>
Now let's see if they can drag him back to China! Though given his history, he'd probably be safer leading a one-dragon assault on France...
Well, I have to skip over the last two- I've only read up to the end of Black Powder War... It's kinda small and hard to read, but it is still amusing that... yeah, Granby seems to get picked on a lot. He lives where others die, though- *points at the poor pups from BPW*. Those two... one didn't even get to LIVE... And he's stuck with an over-exitable, battle-hungry little girl who has perfect capabitity to kidnap him (later on). Or squash him, though she wouldn't do that. Or, as this depicts... set him on fire...
I love Temeraire's expression for the BPW picture... And poor Granby's in the first ToJ one.
Also, I just want to point out that if there are ostriches in a book based in Australia... I'd just have to give up. (it'd be like the people who think the pokemon dodrio is one... only... worse. Just like three/four toes doesn't equal ostrich, ostrich does not equal Australian)
I love Granby. He's easily my favorite. I will be so sad if Ms Novik kills him. Hey, maybe that's how the series will end: Granby gets killed and then Iskierka kills everyone. I'd laugh... But yeah, poor Granby.
You know i first noticed now how many times Granby does get in trouble
Maybe Naomi do have a grudge against him or something. Oh well lets see what he or his dragon gets them into in Australia.
Cant wait for the sixth book, only finshed the fifth yesterday and discovered the entire series a little over 2 months back and then just tore through the books one after the other. One of the best series ever.
haha in the second book he also fell in the snow with the head forward and nearly got frozen forever and after that, in one battle, he fell off temeraire but he caught him and then granby was bleeding a long time^^ poor one
