( if you right click on it you can view it much better up close )
its a shame to loose a tree but it is Natures way. Enjoy
it is so cold today keep warm everyone.
EDIT: I decided to break the previous drawing into two: one for Alek, one for Deryn. Deryn's isn't done yet anyway.
My next rant contains SPOILERS
My favorite Leviathan character used to be Deryn, but when I got to the very end of the books it was Alek.
Deryn seems to a bit more popular among fans, but it seems to me that Alek's growth throughout the books is kind of deeper than Deryn's. The Alek in Book I is a bit more childlike and delicate than the Alek in Book III. You can see it in the drawings. He goes from a doubtful opinion on women to a sincere interest in feminism. He becomes rather oblivious and clueless, and like most young people has no idea what to do, especially now that his parents died and his empire crumbled. But somehow he learns how to combine his fine education and careful personality with a strange new world that ran out of rules. That's why I like Downton Abbey, we can see just how values change.
Deryn - being brave and witty, with a fresh spirit, living in the present - still has to cope with her secret and the death of her father. But she's part of a crew, a group, and her actions can't deeply change the course of the war, at least not like Alek's. And so he seems to be the one being shoved all alone into deeper happenings of the war. Killing Tesla. The loss of innocence softens him at the same time his angst washes away. Still, he's the dark side of the chapters while Deryn's having fun, but he's not a depressive character, I think.
I was skeptic about a prince character, because you knew what was going to happen. Girl meets prince, you know? But Scott Westerfeld is awesome, and so Alek's not just a realistic prince, he's a boy who knows how useless a Prince Charming would be in this story, learning that masculinity isn't such an uptight thing, coming to terms with not being a "real son" because his mother wasn't royal enough for him to inherit the throne... He's realistic enough to not be at once ready to accept that a boy he knew is in fact a girl he comes to love.
>What do you think? Do you hold this character close to you or not? Do you prefer Deryn? Do you prefer another character? Lemme know!
for an extra effect Enjoy!
