While reading A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin, I came across the following line which seemed odd to me. (Note, English is only my third language so "seemed odd to me" is about as meaningless as it gets)
[...], even if he did look like a monstrous yellow slug and smell of piss.
The smell part is what seems off to me, though I realize there's an assumed repetition of he did. I guess I just find it sounding odd.
Is the used phrasing correct? Is it also correct to use the following line?
[...], even if he did look like a monstrous yellow slug and smelled of piss.
Which way is most common in English?
