There should be an annotated version of The Resurrectionists that uses John and Meghan's comments, I swear to god. They're so much better than the text. I'm sitting here editing from John's version and I know Megh's cracked me up hard on the last draft, too.|
As a sample, from the bit I just edited (which is full of such rad hilarity leading up to this point, too):
Tom, meeting her stony glare with one of his own, only slightly different for the hint of smugness about the mouth and eyes, said, "Miss Hannah, it's nothing for which your admirable beau ought to feel ashamed. As I have long said, God has not left him without resources--and surely He would not be so cruel to the rest of our sex as to endow one man with every desirable quality. What woman would deign to speak to the rest of us?"
Hannah's smile twisted into something cruel, and she drew herself up to her full five-feet-and-four-inches. "So it is not only envy, but also jealousy. I daresay you're right to feel as much, Mr. Brandon. Absolutely right." [Oh, snap! - John]
I laughed so hard it hurt. Oh my god.
I now have this unshakable image of Paul, after Hannah flounces off, going, "Oh, snap! You just got served, sucker!"
And Tom being like, "Fuck that noise, man--haters gon' hate." As he straightens his cravat.
