Wulfe, thanks, that's high praise coming from someone with your skill at character development. Writing fellows like Dirks is always fun. And Swany just might see about getting him transferred to his new outfit, the man does seem to know his way around an engine.
Fullofit, Swany does have a lot going on at the moment and it's definitely got his accent coming on strong. He's quite anxious about meeting the King; he's very tired of waiting around Candas; he's upset about no longer seeing his good friends Collins and Jericho; he's excited about his new assignment; he's nervous about the mock combat with the Eindecker, mainly because of the audience that will be watching; and he's scared, (hell, he's terrified), about having to face Georgette with the news that he's being sent back to England. I'm actually surprised the poor sod isn't speaking pure Norwegian at the moment.
