Subject: QOD for Sunday January 3, 2016

The following quotation is from Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 1992. All Rights Reserved. Chapter 12, L’HÔPITAL DES ANGES.


“Fergus?” I said, eyeing the boy, and trying to ignore the goings-on below. The lad was possibly nine or ten, but small for his age, and fine-boned as a ferret. Clad in clean, worn clothes several sizes too big for him, he was also as French as they come, with the pale, sallow skin and big, dark eyes of a Parisian street child.

“Well, his name is really Claudel, but we decided that didna sound verra manly, so he’s to be called Fergus instead. A suitable warrior’s name, that.” Catching the sound of his name— or names— the boy glanced up and grinned shyly at me.

[> Wee Fergus!! I wonder who decided it wasn't a manly name. Did Claudel confide in this tall stranger who asked for his help? -- kgp, 08:03:39 01/03/16 Sun

[> "He's Jamie's", is one of the best ways that Claire describes Fergus. Such a loyal lad to Jamie! -- LisaW, 12:25:19 01/03/16 Sun
