Thanks for the link!
I actually told myself I wasn't allowed to buy anything this month, because my uni books cost so much money. But I might, just might not be able to resist this :lol: :whistle:

It's very, very, very cheap. You will not find it cheaper. I haven't looked for TNA books in years (because I've had them all for years! :lol: ), but this one is one of the rarest to get your hands on, so I'd pounce now while you can. Of course, I'll still be posting funny bits here (you guys seem to like reading them), but if you want a copy that's a very good price, especially considering the rate the Aussie dollar's at at the moment.

Re: How To Write A New Avengers Novel

Haven't poked around here for awhile, but I have my TNA novels out, so thought I'd throw a few things in.

More from Fighting Men:

Oh no! Purdey's been captured!

"You had better come out with your hands up, or she goes straight to the crocodiles."

"Don't do it, Mike," shouted Purdey, but Gambit came out.

Gambit: "Great plan, Purdey."
P: "You shouldn't have surrendered."
G: I was thinking of those crocodiles. I mean, what sort of meal would you have been? You haven't eaten for days. I love animals, and it would simply not have been fair."

"What do you say to a crocodile face to face that will appease him?"
"Make it snappy."
"Very funny."

Later, Purdey gets to eat:

"Another breakfast, Miss? You've had two already."
Purdey: "I know. Now I want a third." :lol:

Hostage is the only second season TNA ep to get a novel. It's written by Peter Cave, who also did House of Cards (the bad TNA novel that I cited so much in the other thread), but he's done much better this time around. One of my all-time favourite TNA lines is in here. Gambit is being put through a series of agent tests, one of which is word assocation.

Evans: "I shall say something, and I want you to speak the first word which comes into your mind. Do you understand?"

Gambit nodded.

"Good," Evans said with satisfaction.

"God, said the Ducess, I think I'm pregnant," Gambit delivered, with a straight face.

I can just hear Gareth rattling that one off. :lmao:

Re: How To Write A New Avengers Novel

These lines are brilliant.
Still think all lines related to Purdey and food are the best though :lmao:

They are. The running food joke it pretty darn good, though. Poor Gambit starts out annoyed, and then starts to feel hungry himself. Can you imagine being trapped with Purdey while she talks about food all day? :lmao:

You would either go crazy, or hungry. Or worse; both :lmao:

Presumably the bit where Purdey and Gambit start imagining each other as giant hams with legs, like in cartoons, was cut. :lmao:

Re: How To Write A New Avengers Novel

Now that is something I'd like to see. I'd pay good money for it too :lmao:
