Can't be at the meet-up :( can someone ask these for me?
« on: April 10, 2011, 04:27:25 AM »

I can't be at the meetup tonight  :'( but could someone PLEASE ask these questions for me and post the answers?

1) Did you look up old English sayings like "barking" for Leviathan?
2) Do you have a thing with writing about evil female doctors that aren't actually doctors?
3) Do you know German?
4) Does Lilit know Deryn's a girl?
5) What's this I've been hearing about Lilit's evil clone??
6) Please tell, does Dr. Barlow or Alek find out if Deryn's a girl?
7) What does Bovril do?
8. Where did you get the idea of the name Monkey Luddites?
9) Have you gotten my letter and read it and the story?

OK, so someone PLEASE PLEASE ask these questions and say they're from Grace-la and post the answers.  THX!!!  ;D

I can answer almost all of these? I'm not Scott, but...
1. I would assume so, as barking is an actual old curse.
2. He has a lot of them, so probably.
3. I'm pretty sure that's a no.
4. Yes. "Mr. Sharp", anyone?
5. It has to do with the April Fools picture.
6. That is spoilery and I think you'll have to wait until September.
7. Bovril picks out words and phrases that it deems significant and helpful.
8.  Luddites were against fancy new machinery in the real world, and would destroy the machines as they believed they were taking the worker's jobs. So I believe Scott just added Monkey, to represent animals.
9. Can't answer this one, haha.

Actually I think he said somewhere he's studied German (though he's not fluent).

Do you think maybe Dr. Barlow already knows but just doesn't want to say. Or...WAIT! Near the last part of Behemoth when Dr. Barlow was, say, surprised that Bovril hanging around Deryn, and then she made some comment about her and Alek being really close.

She looked up at the sky, battered, and dry.  "With God as my witness," she raised a fist in the air. "I won't die till I shake this entire earth and every soul who lives on it to the very core." She took in a sharp breath. " TO THE CORE!" she screamed. Victory shall yet be hers.
