Laurence D: Expression by DemonBunny Laurence D: Expression by DemonBunny
He's normally much more awesome than this, but for some reason I keep drawing him looking like an idiot.

I don't know, half the book I imagine him going, ?! D:>


William Laurence (c) Temeraire, Naomi Norvik

I personally enjoyed the line that came after: "Oh, you mean whores." "But I do not understand. Victoriatus send it was prodigiously nice for men and also desirable because otherwise they might like to get married which did not sound pleasant at all."

I don't remember the 29 Hours of Labor that from Empire of Ivory? I'm rereading (again) and haven't gotten that far yet.

All fitt perfectly =P But my favs are 'Oh you mean whores?', 'You mean that you do not come from eggs?' and Well, do you not find it more pleasant to be with Jane, than to-'

Best lines of the books! And I would chose the 1st one. XD

Temeraire seens to know how t ask the things you just wish he did not :D

Love this. His face made me crack up. He's oddly adorable like this :D
AtalantaRan Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2011   Writer
He is a very awesome character, but he DOES spend at least half of the first book making that precise face.
arysani Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011
Awwww POOR LAURENCE. This cracks me up, because it is SO TRUE. Tem really does test his propriety, poor boy.
JagdStorm Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011  Student General Artist
When I read Temeraire, I also see Laurence looking like this. He's like "why does life put me into these situations"
occreater Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010
Ha, yes, that is exactly the expression I imagined him to be having, from the earliest moment of dawning mortification. I enjoy substituting the scene when Temeraire's head tendrils come in, and there's inappropriate stroking. >:D

I could not stop laughing at this!

I totally stole this to be an Avatar on LJ. XD
Hope that's okay~ :p
DemonBunny Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2010
that's fine, lol.

the best character that reminds me of will, is will turner from pirates of the carribean :) it would be awesome if the set orlando bloom for will ^^
oh, and it would be also awesome if tharkay was played by johnny depp, he would probably enjoy the character's unique character :)
The13Inquisitor Featured By Owner May 31, 2013
No, Tharkay is way too serious a character to be played by Johnny Depp, but Bloom as Laurence? Hell. Yes. And with Peter Jackson as the director...

That's going to be one epic TV series.

Don't forget

"Well Mei and i didn't have to go anywhere to-"

Might not be right word for word but you get the gist of it :D

I cannot believe that I've only just started this series! So the only quote that fits right now is the whores one. The others are absolutely hilarious though! This is sooo how his face would look! :XD:
FishieMishie Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2010
I LOVE Laurence's WTF face, and you've picked some fantastic quotes. Thank you!

You seem to have forgotten: "Oh, I already know about all of that. But I haven't started bleeding yet and I wouldn't want to go to bed with any of them."

*dies* You win on so many levels.
monlad Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009
Ah... poor laurence...
Looking at that, it's almost the Laurence WTF face...
He just keeps getting stuff like that happen to him, far too often. Personally I think this face works best with the "Oh, you mean whores." scene...
Can't w8 to see the kookiness Down Under in the next book!

:rofl: really, this is the epitomy of what makes Will so adorkable. Loooooove eeet! ^^
AgiVega Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
How cute! I've only read the first book so far, so I only get the first quote (such comments from Temeraire always make me burst out laughing), I bet the rest are from the other four. Btw, is VoE the final book in the series, or are there more to come? I'm completely new to this fandom, so am cluless...
DemonBunny Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
Haha, thanks! It's said that Temeraire might have nine books, I'm not sure, but VoE is definitely not going to be the last book, lol.
AgiVega Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
Nine? Wow. :jawdrop:
lfangirl28 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2008

Love the pic. I imagine him making that face alot 2 XD Do you know where i might be able 2 find some temeraire fan art or fanfiction?
DemonBunny Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2008
Haha, thanks.

Um, there's a small archive here [link] on a Yuletide gift exchange site. More should be updated on Christmas day as well. :)
lfangirl28 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2008
THANK YOU ,THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Your a real help. Thank you soooooo much!!
dragoncaim360 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2008   Writer
I don't think I've seen a more professional-looking Laurence through the entire series.

Excellent books, even better characters.

And pretty good job on the drawing, yourself. :3
DemonBunny Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2008
Hahah, thank you!
waxburden Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2008
Awesome. XD Poor Laurence, those wild and wooly aviators and dragons keep offending his sensibilities! X3
rufious Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Hehe Laurence is such a prude sometimes.
DemonBunny Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2008
lol. Love him for it though. :)
rufious Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Doesn't everyone ? :XD:
He's such a correct english gentleman
littlegman Featured By Owner May 28, 2008
rofl...It's true, too; I could probably find a good 50 more quotes to insert there.
Imalshen Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2008
Best series ever. Have you read the 4th book yet? EEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok sorry I'm totally commenting all over your stuffs tonight and I'm a little hyper at the same time. lol Not a good combo!
DemonBunny Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008
Haha, I don't mind at all! xD

Yes! I'm totally excited for the fifth book. Maaaan, July seems so far.
Imalshen Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008
I know! *cries* My dad is reading the fourth one right now (I read books and keep them in my room and when he travels he goes in, picks one up, and reads them through.) and I told him he's got to tell me when he finishes, because I'm dying to spaz on someone. lol They can't do it!They mustn't do it!
JackalBot Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2008
Hahah! Expression and quote luff. x)

I dun know why, but I've always pictured Laury as middle-aged, with black hair and facial whiskers... I'm insane like that. I do believe I like your style better, however. :P lawl.
DemonBunny Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2008
Haha, thanks!

I also imagined him with dark hair too! But I was rereading HMD and his hair is described as being sun bleached. That threw me off. Eh. :/
