back in the day of half a year ago I am so sorry I said I’d post my deryn sharp reference sheet.

I originally started making this for a huge project for school, but now I’ve kinda hit a dead end in which I’m not entirely sure I should use it. The idea was to take a story with relevant morals to today’s society and transform it into concept art for a (fake) animated movie for kids, but now I’m not so sure if Leviathan is the right choice for that. Anyone care to come into my inbox and explain why Leviathan is really relevant in terms of the morals we need to teach children? I can’t really put it into words.

And if you know of a better story (I was thinking along the lines of POC representation) please send me an ask as well.

This is old, but I still like it :)

Every time I read a really good Leviathan fic I remember why I liked the series so much, but I also remember why there’s such a bittersweet feeling to it all. It shouldn’t really be that way since the canon ending is a very happy one, and it took me some time to figure out why the books left such a burning hole in my chest for weeks… but now I know that it’s because maybe people like Alek and Deryn don’t exist in real life, and maybe partnerships like the one they found in each other, when they were both so young, don’t really exist either. You can spend the rest of your life longing for an Alek or a Deryn, but if you’re reading this and you’re over twenty you’re very likely to die without ever finding that, because nothing you find now can ever be that innocent or that generous.

Make me a poster.

I wish I could do typography or something. All I really want is a poster I can print and put in my room that says “What would Deryn Sharp do?” to remind me not to care about what other people think; to get my head in the game and work hard; to be tough as nails when the situation calls for it; and to remind me to be entirely honest with the people I care about. (Weird how a character whose career is based on deceiving everybody about her sex is one of the most honest, what-you-see-is-what-you-get characters I’ve ever read about.)   

I’ve just tried to experiment with some fonts but oh my god, I really suck at this.

OH MY GOD I WOULD TOTALLY BUY THIS COMIC. If I’d met these books when I was younger, I would have grown up asking myself, “What would Deryn Sharp do?” With no magic, no money and no radioactive spiders involved, she’s become my favorite superhero.

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the fact that Deryn Sharp managed to attract and kiss a boy and a girl, both of whom are attracted to girls all while dressed like a boy.

Because of one thing or another, during our weekly meet-up, my best friends and I ended up talking about the two world wars and their proximate causes. I was excited to share what I knew about the first world war—going on and on about the assassination of Franz Ferdinand and the death of the Austrio-Hungarian empire—until I realized that I wasn’t sure what was fictional and what wasn’t; I think I absorbed too much of what was in the Leviathan series’ alternate history, and not enough of my own history books.

I know we love Edith now, but I’m rewatching series 1 of Downton Abbey and I’m back to hating her guts over the Turkish embassy thing. There are just some lines you don’t cross. I wish I could bash her nose in. It’s not just because of how it affects Mary—Edith gave no thought to how it would affect the rest of her family. 

Also, I had a thrilling moment when the family had just come from London for the season and Mrs Hughes tells Lord and Lady Grantham that the talk of the village was “the murder of the Austrian archduke.” I didn’t know at the time that this was supposed to foreshadow the start of the war. I know it now, but I also know that somewhere in the world Alek is learning to pilot a walker on his own and Deryn Sharp has just made her way onto the Leviathan airship. :D I love it when fandoms collide.

Deryn Sharp!
Dresses up as a boy to join the air force because she loves to fly!
Gets a huge honking crush on a foreign prince but puts her country first!
Has an even bigger stupider crush on her giant flying whale ship!
Conducts secret missions and makes executive decisions!
Totally willing to commit FLAGRANT TREASON if her moral code demands it!
Talks like a sailor and doesn’t ever know what to do with her feelings!
Kisses a girl and kind of likes it!
MY FAVORITE FOREVER.
