The vote at the bottom. TELL HIM ALREADY!

I would say it depends but she seriously needs to tell him.

The longer she puts off telling him, the less time they have to talk it out before going their (hopefully not) seperate ways for life.  The longer she doesnt tell him, the madder he is going to be.

I'd hate it if she told him and then he started seeing her as a "useless girl".  Hopefully when he does find out, he can look past the shock and still like her for her personality!  It makes me nervous just thinking about it!

Alek does seem a little sexist. or a lot.  If he gets all hoity-toity around Deryn when he finds out, I will cry.  Such a good set up for some commidy? And he gives a lecture from the time period on how women should be treated? That would be pathetic.

Exactly, Scott needs to allow plenty of time for Alek to love Deryn back.

And as far as Alek being sexist I was really disappointed with his comments. In my mind I was thinking Alek isn't like that. He's perfect. But then I found out that Alek was like every other dude back then.

I mean, here's the thing.
If she tells him, there's a very low chance of it working out.
If she DOESN"T tell him, there's a ZERO chance of it working out.
Title: Re: Your Opinion on Deryn's Secret
Post by: FleaBird6 on January 22, 2011, 01:11:36 PM
Agreed.  Though, I think that Scott will make it work out, and I know I am revoicing someonelses comment from another thread, because it is comedy.  How can a book be all that funny if the two main characters hate each other?  There are only about 100 pages worth of situations, and some of them don't make sence, like girl-girl conflicts, or boy-boy conflicts.

Post by: LiterateChick on April 18, 2011, 09:07:53 AM
Well it would be a very awkward moment. And she has to think, which is better: him thinking she's a boy but keeping his friendship, or running the risk of him hating her guts for the rest of his life?

But I'm not Deryn, I'm just a rabid fangirl. So I say OMG FREAKING TELL THE BOY ALREADY! FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUU!!!!!!

I wonder what would Alek do after the shock and everything would they kiss? Have kids? get married?
I wonder...  ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: Your Opinion on Deryn's Secret
Post by: waxesnostalgic on April 18, 2011, 10:23:18 AM
Well, I think Alek is the kind of guy whose mind would flash forward to kids pretty quickly, like that part in American Born Chinese where the main character notices how attractive his classmate is at the top of a page, and by the last panel on the page he is imagining them having kids. XD

Honestly, she should've already told Alek. But I kinda understand her when she doesn't... but I still think she should tell him soon.
Title: Re: Your Opinion on Deryn's Secret
Post by: PhoenixAshes on April 18, 2011, 01:03:39 PM
I can understand why she hasn't. Obviously, she's played with the idea.... I probably would've waited too late to tell him too. Plus, it builds up the angst and suspense! :D

Post by: KesaraGirl on April 18, 2011, 01:12:11 PM
Deryn should tell him, but I get why she doesn't. but seriously, we're all yelling at her to 'Just tell him already, darn it!"

Since Scott practically said Alek would find out..let's not contemplate a world where Deryn doesn't tell Alek.  Because he will find out, and they will get together, and it will be wonderful.  I'm not expecting too much!

Ah ok totally setting myself up to fall on my unsharpened noobie sword here but.

Does it really matter? I mean i read the books for the setting and the adventure involved more than the Deryn/Alek romantic tension, yes there were times i wanted to throttle Alek for not knowing. But i really don't think it would make that great a difference in the novel. let's assume that the pair get into some serious trouble (as they have done in the past two novels) Realistically Alek would be liek "Ok cool let's focus on sorta not dying we'll work it out later" Heck i'd applaud Westerfled for having Alek chuck a sexiest rage at Deryn and ending the novel on a grim note. (But I'm weird so yeah)  Or some such event.

Please don't kill me

Post by: jessinator11 on April 22, 2011, 05:39:23 AM
*scraps plans for newbies imminent demise* You make a good point.  I got this book for the setting as well (i'm a steampunk fan) but the Alek/Deryn romantic tension has kept it interesting too.  For me, romance in a novel makes it more...readable i guess. And welcome, btw  :)

Post by: LiterateChick on April 22, 2011, 08:31:16 AM
Yeah, that's why I got it too, but the romance is just an added bonus! I suppose that if Alek/Deryn doesn't happen, I'll be devastated of course, but I guess it wouldn't completely ruin the books...... *explodes*

Again this should go on page one...

But it occurs to me that Deryn has attempted to tell Alek multiple times. But somebody has to walk in, or something has to explode to keep her from spilling the beans.

Bit frustrating, isn't it?

It's where you choose a character and a few other people do the same and you make up a story pretty much.
You each post up a conversation of your character.
I'm doing a few myself but you have to go to a new one to do it.
Some people will let you join but not a whole lot.

Well, of course not.

Just getting all in depth into what it's like to be shot, to be dying, have people's chest cavities blow open...it's all quite ...lovely...

I've read waaaay worst in books.
Particularly the Demonata series.

Well, yes, in books, but on a young adult website with twelve-year-olds and all?
(Actually, it's mostly parents I'm concerned with. Some very young kid could read it and be like "Mommy, what does splatter mean? :o"...and the it evolves from there...)

I'd understand Deryn hesitating to tell Alek, considering what he told her about Lillit...

Yeah, she still could have told him when they were alone in the hotel room. It sort of ticks me off that she didn't.  :(

me too! I was practically on the edge of my seat waiting for her to tell him...and then Alek interrupted.  I blame him. He gave her a distraction that wasn't needed!

This is hardly Alek's fault. She totally could have told him anyway. That was the perfect moment.

"Err...no that isn't the secret I want to tell you..."

Well it's kinda hard to go on with what you were planning to say, whatever that is, when someone tells you something like that. But still, no excuse.

.... I really need to pick a side in this argument.  ::)
