a modern day warrior, mean mean stride

Rudyard Kipling was a Tom Sawyer/Becky Thatcher 'shipper.

That's FUCKING AWESOME.

SECONDED.
That's FUCKING AWESOME.

That pretty much is.

Speaking of Kipling, you have read his steampunk with dirigibles? From 1905?
ooo. shiny. Thank you.
That Ghostwolf Kipling site is a major timesink. I try not to visit because the stories are just so good.

OTP!
Oh, yeah. I just love seeing my literary heroes play fanboy...

Thank you!

Indeed, it was fucking awesome, since I heart both Twain and Kipling, this was a rare glimpse and treat!
oh, this is delightful! Love Kipling doing the fanboy thing--and it's extra priceless for those great descriptions of 1889 Elmira.

I grew up 'way on the other side of East Hill; when my dad was a kid, he worked at the Mark Twain Hotel in 'downtown' Elmira. I love the image of those two fellows talking lit'rachure and smoking cigars up in Twain's pilothouse study on Quarry Farm. Thank you!
*grin* I remember reading the Kipling inteview a long time ago, but had forgotten some of the details.

I lived in Elmira Heights 'til I was 12, when we moved to Horseheads. And yeah, love that image...
Your journal entry title is APPROVED.
Oh, that's lovely. Nearly as much fun as Twain's diatribe on James Fenimore Cooper and much nicer.

I think I'd have liked Twain, and Kipling. I've read enough of their work that wasn't fiction to feel like I have some idea of them. (On the other hand I listened to an essay by Marie Corelli and was muttering "bitch! BITCH!" the whole time. Funny, no one much reads Corelli these days.)
That's wonderful. Not the controlled Kipling I know at all.

I have to confess that, reading this before tea, some part of my brain that is normally not allowed out saw "Thatcher" as "Thackeray" and decided that Kipling was a Tom Sawyer/Becky SHARP 'shipper. Yikes.

P.
So much cool. . .
The thought of Kipling being a geebling fanboy at Twain is going to keep me in smiles for a week. :-)
Great link. Thank you.

When I was in college I worked for a security company owned by a (grand?)nephew of Sam Clemens. Though he had the same last name, my boss lacked the intelligence, the charm, and the wit.

Alas....
Ooh, thank you!
