I love 13!

(:O 8 contradicts 3 and 6. Be consistent, Jack!)

Thanks!

(lol - I know. But thus we have the two halves of Jack - the one that is factually true and how he would also see himself, and that which the reader sees as well as many of those around him, including Stephen to some extent given he constantly refers to Jack as 'the hero of the Nile', albeit somewhat tongue-in-cheek but with deep affection)

They are quite, quite brilliantly superb. I have completely run out of superlatives for them, to be honest.

The full quote is: "There is a great deal to be said for a steady deck under a 'cello: a great deal to be said for a cheerful heart behind a fiddle" - both Stephen and Jack are reasonable musicians, as amateurs, cellist and violinist respectively, and indeed that's how they first meet, right at the beginning of the first book - they are attending a music recital. :D

Um... *thinks* Can't remember. lol! I think it's 'Desolation Island' but it could be before then. ¬¬

Thank you!

I think it was muttered in HMS Surprise by Lady Forbes (the strange companion of Villiers) to Stephen on one of his visits to persuade Diana to marry him. Not sure whether it was in Bombay or Calcutta.
