Title: Picture Reveal
Post by: ArtfullyInsane on March 04, 2011, 02:05:23 PM
So we know that Scott is tallying up the votes, so we decided to make a topic on the new picture, and future ones too. We can discuss what it reveals and all that jazz. ;)

Double headed eagle! It is related to the Hapsburgs! And just saying - looks like Alek is checking Deryn out.

Not totally, his eyes are angled more upwards, towards the two-headed bird, or the cadges.

AMAZING!!! ;D

Am I the only one who thinks Alek looks a little tired in this picture?

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: FleaBird6 on March 04, 2011, 02:11:59 PM
I think Deryn just told him or is telling him!

Double headed eagle! It is related to the Hapsburgs! And just saying - looks like Alek is checking Deryn out.

I thinkthere are 2 birds, there is a wing in the middle of where the breast(orni term) would be if they were connected.

it was the 2-headed messenger.

this is just my thought but it looks like the birds eyes are covered.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: LiterateChick on March 04, 2011, 02:12:43 PM
Mmm, his coat is really smexy. And yeah, he looks exhausted.

Has anyone else noticed the knife attached to Deryn's ankle?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Feather on March 04, 2011, 02:13:41 PM
Well... I'm disappointed. The bird was nice, but it didn't give me a better idea for the overlay of the book, like the third one would have, nor would it contain my favorite charrie, like the first. However, it's a nice imagine and will generate a good discussion.

So, we have a bird. Very official looking. Messenger, probably. Possibly the same messenger as in the first picture. Or it could be a whole new messenger. (I think that's more likely, unless "two headed" was a figure of speech, meaning something aside from the appearent.) The scenario in my head is that Barlow received a different bird bearing different news, and now Alek has received a personal bird. Secret information, maybe?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 02:14:38 PM
Yea, the birds eyes are covered. And I do love Alek's coat. Maybe he was sleeping and was woken up for the secret....
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 02:15:51 PM
I think it's the same bird from the first picture with Dr. Barlow.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: ArtfullyInsane on March 04, 2011, 02:16:15 PM
the coat was epic. Alek, worried, the bird very regal. Deryn, ominous, and bovril, cute.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Seven on March 04, 2011, 02:17:19 PM
This is an awesome picture, and Alek look gorgeous. And Bovril is so cute and smart. I want to squeeze him. Perhaps Deryn is telling the birds something.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: LiterateChick on March 04, 2011, 02:17:44 PM
It looks like there's a camera in the top left corner! I could be mistaken, but it certainly looks like one...

I have no clue what that thing on the left is. And I love Deryn's face; I wonder what she's thinking?

Deryn. Why are you covering your mouth. Did the bird take a nibble on your figures? Are you unease about something? Are you thinking long and hard about something....or someone? Hmm?
...Oh, she has an interesting knife in her boot!

Alek looks unsure about the birds, possibly the one in the cage. Whats the matter Alek? not used to the beasties yet? lolz
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Starlight on March 04, 2011, 02:22:12 PM
Alek looks like he is afraid. Probably of the freaky giant two-headed bird.

That's a good possibility, that seems to happen a lot. Deryn looks like she's puzzling over something, maybe the secret?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 02:23:53 PM
So, guys? Did the bird deliver good news or bad news? I personally think it's bad news.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: ArtfullyInsane on March 04, 2011, 02:24:32 PM
by Deryn's expression, bad news.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Well, Alek's frowning, and Deryn looks very serious, almost uncharacteristically so. I'm gonna go with bad.

Those cadges have birds in them, maybe Deryn is taking the messengers to one of the cadges to stay for the night?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: CorpseVendor on March 04, 2011, 02:27:17 PM
And after that, they do a little talking.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

I wish I knew what scheme is cooking up in Deryn's head.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Moonie on March 04, 2011, 02:28:31 PM
Random thoughts:

Okay, a stretch, but Deryn's touching her lips. Doubt anyone's kissed her before the picture, but maybe the two of them are talking about Lilit?
(I think i've read What You Are too many times.)

Also I feel proud of myself, I noticed Deryn's clothes were off from the preview image.

The texture of her hand is strange- a burn?

Title: Re: Picture Reveal

It looks like she has her hand over her mouth, in a lady like fashion to cover a yawn.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 02:33:50 PM
I've been squinting at the picture for like 5 minutes now. I can't tell what Deryn is doing with her hand. It could just a thinking gesture.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Starlight on March 04, 2011, 02:34:35 PM
They both seem worried about something. Possibly bad news the bird brought.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

She looks like Lilit.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Moonie on March 04, 2011, 02:34:56 PM
Her other hand is gripped though, like she's nervous or frustrated about something.

Alek's eyebrow is arched in a way that gives an impression of curiosity or confusion.

.... You know, I give up, I'm just going to find a time machine.

Her hand is gripped cause the birds are probably barking heavy. They aren't exactly light

But back to the pic!

Kieth Thompson's pis usually have a lot of stuff happening in it, with all that detail. Lets see if we can spot anything that might gives a clue.....

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 03:16:55 PM
Do you think that the coat is Alek's? It looks a little big for him. Could it be someone else's, like Klopp or Hoffman? Or maybe I'm just over-analyzing ::)
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on March 04, 2011, 03:20:24 PM
Oh, AMAZING!  ;D

What I want to know is why Alek is wearing a British Air Service Officer's Jacket (http://www.warmuseum.ca/cwm/exhibitions/navy/galery-e.aspx?section=2-C-7&id=1). That is what it looks like to me. (It's not an Austrian coat, those have waistline seams) I wonder whose it is?

Deryn's clothes look loose and kind of strange... with falconry gear on top. Is that belt usual? It looks a bit Japanese to me.  Deryn has evidently decided that carrying a knife around at all times is the best bet.  :)

Can't you tell I love clothes? XD

Funny how we couldn't see the condor looking bird in the cage behind them in the preview... it should have been somewhat visible, I think. The two headed bird looks like some kind of eagle/hawk/vulture mashup. It definitely seems to have two heads, it only has one pair of talons. Deryn does have a strange look on her face, I guess it could be shock, but also looks like she might just be thinking hard. Alek looks a bit wary and worried.

And finally, the most important observation of all... there is bird poo on the walkway beneath them.  :P
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: danakairi on March 04, 2011, 03:27:59 PM
Alek is probably wearing those clothes to blend in and stay hidden. Or maybe the people on the air service are really nice and wanted to give him clean clothes. Deryn's clothes don't seem that unusual to me.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 03:33:34 PM
I just can't get over how tired and exhausted Alek looks. It makes me think that this message was delivered late at night, or extremely early morning.

Or that Alek hasn't been sleeping well. Which is a definite possibility.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Moonie on March 04, 2011, 03:37:38 PM
I recognize Alek's outfit under the jacket. He wears it in the Hotel during Behemoth. oh god how do i notice these things

The jacket, though, no clue.

Anyway, for the hand, ACCORDING TO GOOGLE IMAGES, you don't always have to have your fist clenched. So I dunno.

Also, for a scene about secrets, is it really wise to say something in front of three (four, if you count the bird) message repeating beasties?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: CorpseVendor on March 04, 2011, 03:38:14 PM
I like the knife on Deryn's boot. What she gonna use if for? X3

Oh! What if Deryn mumbled something under her breath that she didn't mean to say out loud. Alek didn't catch it cause he was distracted or something by the birds, but Bovril caught it and she fears he might say whatever it is she might have said.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 03:39:57 PM
OH! I love that idea!! :D
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

She certainly has Bovril's attention. Doesn't she.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on March 04, 2011, 03:44:28 PM
Heh, that kind of makes sense. Alek might have actually heard and just be confused. XD
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: CorpseVendor on March 04, 2011, 03:46:32 PM
Alek: "Did you say something Dylan?"

Dylan: "What? No. I, uh, didn't say anything."

Bovril: "Mr.Sharp. *giggles*"

Dylan:  >:(
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: bunniesandcaffeine on March 04, 2011, 03:52:19 PM
The knife on Deryn's boot is her rigging knife. She usually has it with her.
It is kinda stupid to tell secrets in front of Bovril. "Mr. Sharp"
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 04, 2011, 03:54:23 PM
 You gotta love Bovril!! ;D

Well, Deryn is definitely going to be sent on a mission of some sort to deliver that package from the third picture, and she has that rigging knife on her boot then too. Maybe she just has it with her at all times now; it can come in handy.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Post by: tridecagirl on March 05, 2011, 01:18:51 AM
If you read through the comments on the actual post, you'll see that her clothes look weird because she's wearing a flight suit - something she usually wears if it's going to be cold (her keelhaul drop into freezing waters, or on the glacier) So they might be in Russia, and she was just outside. Alek is not wearing any warm clothing, so he probably wasn't outside recently.

Here's what I'm guessing, or hoping  ;) is going on:
A: So the Emperor is dying... soon I can stop the war. :)
D: That's... wonderful.
A: You don't seem very happy about it.
D: Since when are you perceptive?
A: What's going on?
D: Erm... it's a bit of a secret.
A: I told you mine. I think I can handle yours.
D: Promise not to freak out.
A: Promise.
D: I'm a girl.
A:.... AuGH!
D: You promised not to freak out! Look, you're scaring the birdie.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

When i went and looked back at the partial pictures  did anyone else notice bovril in the first pic?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Seven on March 05, 2011, 02:25:55 AM
Or the Loris could belong to the lady boffin. In the second picture I think Alek is just depressed. He never seems to be smiling in pictures.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on March 05, 2011, 03:54:04 AM
That's not her flight suit, the jacket is way too short. Her flight suit (http://keiththompsonart.com/pages/negotiations.html) has a skirted bottom and is longer thant that. And it's made of fur lined-leather. We'd be able to see the big fluffy collar. The trousers could be her flight suit trousers though...

The emperor's death/severe illness could be the secret too, yes. But I sort of think that it's probably something we'll never guess, but will seem really obvious once we get to that part in the book.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: leviathanseries on March 05, 2011, 07:43:36 AM
For some reason, simply based on the fact that I saw the picture with the blur of white, I knew that if Alek was in the picture, his face would have that expression. It's weird.
And that bird does have two heads! Awesome! :D
I don't think that's a camera, but machinery in the corner of the picture, but that's just me.
I also don't think Deryn's clothes meant anything special...
I noticed that boot knife straight away too, but someone mentioned the rigging knife on here, and I think that's right. She always has it with her, does she not?
I'm thinking Deryn is thinking hard about some bad news, and Alek is watching the thoughts run a mile a minute through her head. Plus, he might be a little weary, (it looks like he's looking at the bird) because he's still Clanker, and these fabricated beasties still freak him out. And I also agree that the bird there is the bird from chapter one, the messenger. But then again, it would be a bit disproportioned, because in the first picture it looked like it'd be bigger. Who knows? :)
And maybe Bovril is the one telling the secrets? He is the observant one, after all...

I think that pretty much wraps up all of my thoughts... :)
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: CorpseVendor on March 05, 2011, 07:45:47 AM
Alek still has to tell her what Volger revealed to him about the pope that passed away. He was the only hope for Alek to become emperor. That could be one of the  discussions they have.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on March 05, 2011, 07:46:58 AM
Yeah, but that's not exactly a secret... I mean, when a pope dies, its not top secret or anything.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

no, but that could be one thing that might lead to a secret or something

I think the bird looked bigger in the other picture simply because we were closer to it then Barlow. To me it looked like it was flying, through a window maybe?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: leviathanseries on March 05, 2011, 08:26:44 AM
I thought it almost looked like it was flapping its wings. Landing perhaps, since you suggested it coming through a window. That would make sense since birds fly, and the Leviathan is most likely off the ground. :)
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: CorpseVendor on March 05, 2011, 09:54:37 AM
Its a big bird and big birds require big wings. When the wings are open they make the bird seem much bigger
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: tridecagirl on March 05, 2011, 10:32:16 AM
An explanation for Deryn's hand to her mouth could be that she's blowing her whistle.
And is it me, or does Alek have a black eye?
I hope she punched him.  ;D And I really hope there's a picture.  ;D
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Eclipse-chan~ on March 05, 2011, 10:39:03 AM
LOL I could totally imagine her punching him.

Deryn- WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT WOMAN AND THEIR RIGHTS?!?!?!
Alek- Nothing!!! I swear!!

Later....

Alek- WHY DLYAN!?!?! WHYYYY?!?!?!?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: ItalianRose5 on March 05, 2011, 10:45:42 AM
I think Alek looks older in this picture.
And Deryn looks like she's thinking "oh crap, did I just say that out loud?"
Bovril thinks it's funny.
And the two headed birdy thing looks a little comical with those hoods on.  Like something I've seen from a disney movie

I love this picture btw

Yeah, you are right. Boys tend to look better as they get older. Less childish. Alek doesn't look like he is 12, like he did in some of the earlier pics.

Oh, by the way, at least part of that is her Flight suit. I checked in Leviathan, and she wears her knife on her boot there, too. (page 392, Hardcover edition)

Oh, by the way, at least part of that is her Flight suit. I checked in Leviathan, and she wears her knife on her boot there, too. (page 392, Hardcover edition)

For some reason, simply based on the fact that I saw the picture with the blur of white, I knew that if Alek was in the picture, his face would have that expression. It's weird.
And that bird does have two heads! Awesome! :D
I don't think that's a camera, but machinery in the corner of the picture, but that's just me.
I also don't think Deryn's clothes meant anything special...
I noticed that boot knife straight away too, but someone mentioned the rigging knife on here, and I think that's right. She always has it with her, does she not?
I'm thinking Deryn is thinking hard about some bad news, and Alek is watching the thoughts run a mile a minute through her head. Plus, he might be a little weary, (it looks like he's looking at the bird) because he's still Clanker, and these fabricated beasties still freak him out. And I also agree that the bird there is the bird from chapter one, the messenger. But then again, it would be a bit disproportioned, because in the first picture it looked like it'd be bigger. Who knows? :)
And maybe Bovril is the one telling the secrets? He is the observant one, after all...

I think that pretty much wraps up all of my thoughts... :)

Those were my thoughts too! :]

Boys take longer to reach their full height than girls.  Which is why Deryn is currently taller.  But if you look, she is also pretty short, especially compared to Dr. Barlow.

1. I don't think that's Deryn's Rigging knife - on pg. 344 of Leviathan she's climbing up the ladder and it looks like its just a strap to strap her pants to her boots, and if you look closely in this picture you can kind of see one on the other side. If you look at a lot of the pictures in Leviathan those are the clothes she wears when its cold out, and Alek's awesome coat also indicates that it could be cold weather - Russia? or maybe she had to dress warmly to retrieve the two-headed messenger from the top of the Leviathan?

2.  I also don't think that Alek is looking at Deryn, I think he's looking at one of the birds (who's hats intrigue me and might me significant?)

3. Deryn just looks like she's thinking to me, or found out some bad news from the messenger birds

OR Alek and Deryn could be having a secret conversation and they think someone is watching so Alek is trying to look nonchalant and Deryn is covering her mouth so nobody can read her lips - but this seems highly unlikely considering all of the beasties listening

So I was rereading the end of Behemoth this morning and Volger mentions a eagle type beastie that delivers the newspaper with Alek's article from Churchill himself.  I'm not sure if the birds in this picture are eagle like (they look more hawkish to me, but what do I know), but maybe it's from Churchill. 
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on March 06, 2011, 03:38:59 AM

Wait, Dr. Barlow is in that first picture... Do you think Volger could be in that first picture too?

He could be in the background. Lots of people on here could have sworn there wouldn't be enough room for Alek and Deryn in that picture that was released. But there was room and more, expecially room for a bird! :)

If he is there that would be great! A private moment between Volger and Dr. Barlow would be awesome.

Even though there's no chance of them getting together. :(
But tecnically, it wouldn't be very private, since it's being told from either Alek or Deryn's point of views. :)

I think it's so that the birds don't get freaked out by their surroundings, so that they don't try to fly off whenever someone rushes past, y'know? And I could be mistaken but I think it keeps them quiet.

this is something i found after rereading behemoth, on page 477 when Alek and Volger are talking and Volger is telling Alek howhe had gotten the newspaper from the captain,  but what i noticed the most was what delivered the paper to the captain and that was a and i quote:

"Not just the crew,Alek. Britian has a consulate in New York, of coarse. Even there bumbling diplomats could hardly have missed this. Lord Churchill himself sent that newspaper to Captain Hobbes, carried by some sort of beastly eagle."

and i can take a few guesses at what that eagle looks like.

I went and dug this thread up, since the second reveal is just mere days away! What do you guys think the spoilery bit will be about? Deryn and Alek? Volger and Deryn? Something about the plot of Goliath? Alek's role in the war? What are your thoughts, ideas, theories, and /or fantasies? Let's speculate; it's fun! :D
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Post by: tridecagirl on March 30, 2011, 09:00:24 AM
Here's my thoughts - once Alek finds out exactly what Deryn is, he won't act the same around her. Which means if Scott doesn't have any more pics of them together, we can probably guess the big reveal has happened. And if there's a pic of them together and they're all like  :-[ awkward, then we'll also know.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

That's true. Maybe it'll be a picture, he might say from chapter 20 or something, and it's Alek looking away from Deryn embarassed. Then we'll know the plot as best we can of the book as far as the secret!

And I hope we don't get a picture from the last picture voting. A brand new one would be great, especailly because with the block in the middle you can kind of already guess what's there. We need something completely new! (And preferably something from a further in chapter than the first three!)

I would also like to add some things that sounded very hopeful to me that I found while checking around his blog.
Bear in mind, these are all quotes...

"Goliath! And next art reveal is perhaps A BIT SPOILERY, but I think you’ll enjoy it anyway."

"...this month with added spoilerization"

What could be these extra spoils he's telling us about? Could it be the text we've longed for? :D

He says the spoilery bit as though we might be disappointed at the possibility of spoilers!  ;D The only thing I can think about it is that it is probably an action picture or an epic landscape because we just got a quiet picture. Text would be nice, but we probably won't get any until later.

The only way we would know if it was after the big reveal would be awkwardness, which would probably just be too similar to the last picture for him to post. Or I guess Deryn in a dress would also work too, if that is even possible. XD Spoilers are probably just the plot of the book, though, which isn't as interesting to me as AlekxDeryn.  :D

I've always wanted to see Volger do a facepalm XD

So it kinda looks like Lilit is the "bride" and pulling a knife out of the bouquet... Bovril is ringbearer... Alek is pissed and using someone else's walker... All we're missing is Eddie taking pictures and reporting everything :D

Part of me wants to think that this is some sort of scheme that Alek didn't have privy to. I just can't see Deryn agreeing to a marriage considering everything....
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

i think volger is trying to prevent something between deryn and alek.

also whats with the compressed air guns the guards have it doesn't look like they are on the leviathan.

whats cute about the picture is that bovril is the ringbarer.  << (thats probably spelled wrong)

I think Alek's dreaming. Look at the glow around Deryn and Lillit, if this was acctually happing there wouldn't be that glow, right? It just has a kinda dreamy feel to it. Or it could just be April Fools day joke, which would be equally as epic. :D Oh, and EPIC VOLGER FACEPALM!!! ;D

Post by: waxesnostalgic on April 02, 2011, 12:51:49 AM
I'm pretty sure the walker is photoshopped in, as there's some random guys in military uniforms behind it, and there is that fuzzy haze between it and the rest of the picture. It's a good joke though... maybe he'll reveal one of the real pictures tommorrow?

lol, it looks like Volger and Barlow are facing imminent death from Alek's walker. XD And he's driving a walker while also holding a sword and a pistol?? I do wonder if, as someone suggested, that the bottom part of the picture from Deryn's dream/nightmare. But why the knife?? Varlow are just really close, too close to be photoshopped. I wonder how many pictures this is made from? Because I assume that these are real pictures from Goliath.

And apparently Alek does get to use his fencing skills. The expression on Alek's face kind of worries me, he looks really upset, like he's going to kill someone. It's a bit out of character. The only people I could see him getting that upset about are Deryn and Volger.

Ah, so many questions!

Aww... this is my day off so I am lucky.

Anyway, my sister called and we decided that it was very similar to the A Scotsman on a Horse skit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08jOGYFZCkM). That's what's going to happen next, I bet. XD

Also, Bovril is ringbearer. That has to happen at Alek & Deryn's wedding! (Because we all know that they are getting married XD)

I think it's photoshopped too. The edges around Deryn and "Lilit" are blurred and smudged.... But whether it's an April Fools prank or not, it freaking hilarious! :D

It's probably a mash-up of two or three pictures. He better reveal the truth to us soon!
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on April 02, 2011, 02:15:55 AM
Yeah. I saw that the walker was photoshopped into the wedding scene pretty early, but it's also pretty clear that Alek is photoshopped into the walker from the larger version of the picture. I mean, that's not a very practical fighting stance when your are sticking your torso out of a walker, is it??  ;D I still wonder what made him so upset.
 
Plus, he encourages us to "zoom some" to look at the picture. XD

Big version, if you missed it:

Probably just one, I'd think... or maybe just the parts are all he will give us. Anyway, there's plenty to guess about in this one.  ;D

Also, if Alek is really in the picture he's probably just sitting in the back, happy that his friends are getting married. XD

I want to know why the knife is being pulled out. And what has Alek so upset. And what Deryn is really looking back at. Oh, and the obvious one: why are Deryn and Lilit getting married?!

It's probly a mash of two or three pictures. Why elase would no one realize Alek destroying the pews in the back? Also, the lighting and pencil strokes around Deryn and that random girl that's holding a knife is different from the rest of the picture

What is Deryn holding? Is she getting married to Lillit? But Scott said that he wouldn't reveal the chapter's number so I think it's a fake.

Not to mention that if Alek had smashed through the wall with his Stormwalker, there would be a gaping hole in the wall.
I think Deryn is having a nightmare, and it's one of those dreams where you think it's real until you wake up.

I was thinking, 'Wow, even hella pissed, Alek looks like a girl.'
Then I looked closer and thought, "He REALLY looks like  a girl."
Then I looked at 'Deryn' and thought "Hey... she kinda looks like Alek."

THis sounds crazy, but I think they SWITCHED PLACES. I think Alek is really Deryn! Alek is getting married pretending to be Deryn?

Compare the faces to the other pics in the book. I'm serious - the face of the walker driver matches Deryn's. And the expression 'Deryn' has matches Alek. THEY SWITCHED! OMFG!!!!!!!

You know, switching places would explain a lot! And it could explain why Deryn would be blasting into the church to stop the wedding...
I agree that the walker controller looks a bit girly, but the only problem for me is that the "groom-to-be" looks an awful lot like Deryn too. I don't really think it could be Alek, but I like the idea and I want that to happen now!

I noticed that! and Alek looks positively uncomfortable. maybe it's the odd tailoring of the clothes? they were meant to hide a girl's 'diddies'.

and to me, the backround looks hurried and rushed.

Well, I definitely think that Deryn is Deryn. (XD) but Alek does like a little bit skinny and feminine. Keith often draws him like that though. As I'm 99% sure that the wedding picture and the Alek picture are not the same picture, so there's nothing ruling out them both being Deryn. (if that wasn't confusing enough.  :P)

And the church door in the back looks like a photograph or a texture or something. Not one of Keith's backgrounds. It took me a while to notice the church door, I kept wondering, "Why is there swirly stuff around Alek??"

Yeah, I know, but he could have bleached his hair or worn a wig. It just looks like his signature 'confused, clueless prince' expression. And the pissed off walker pilot is much more Deryn's style of emotion. I mean, come on. Has Alek EVER been in incandescent rage?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

I was looking at that. I was like, "wait a sec, is that Deryn???" I still think the groom looks like Deryn, though.
So I guess that Alek gets in trouble so Deryn disguises herself as Alek to save him. Hmm...

I'm just hoping it's because he wants to save Deryn, but I don't know if that correct. Also, who would Lilit be trying to murder? (Hopefully not Alek)

 Well yes this could be a dream
1. That's not even Alek's walker
2. It has a pirate sign
3. Is Volger crying?
4. Barlow is comforting him
5. Is that girl Lilit? (long black braids)
6. Why is Lilit pulling a knife on Deryn?
7. Why is Borvil floating?
8. There are soldiers flying around in the backround?
9. Most importantly...Alek has lost it and why does he want to kill everyone????

I think this is Deryns dream in chapter 1 because she is so confused by everything that is going on. The story could open in her dream.

Near Deryn's forehead, there seems to be something underneath that big chunk of hair...and it seems that the walker is under an arch stone bridge.

This is like one of the coolest pictures ever! Alek looks pretty formidable, and it is interesting how the boffin has her hands all over Volger.  Scott is trying to feed my Varlow habit. And What's going on with Bovril?

Why is Deryn holding a glove. Is it the bride's glove? And if she is Lilit then she must have cut her hair because Lilit's braids are longer.

Yeah, the background doesn't look like a typical Keith background, but it could just be an extremely shopped background from a different picture. It kinda looks like a sewer background to me for some reason. Maybe a Darwinist one because of the carvings on the walls look vine-y, like a bunch of Darwinian things.

The background looks like a church to me. With the arches and the mosaic. I think this is definitely a wedding in a church. Not Photoshopped.

Scott wouldn't give us the chapter, meaning 1.) It's real and giving us the chappie would spoil (how?), or 2.) There is no chapter because it's fake. However, why would he mention the chapter number if it were fake? It's not like we were going to notice. Elaborating a lie is never good!

Not really. It's blurry around Deryn and Lillit, the walker, Alek and the background in general, like it's been smudged. But Keith's art is always clear and insanely detailed, so it doesn't make sense for there to be random smudgy bits, that's not what he does. You'd be surprised what photoshop can do, it's pretty crazy.

Yeah, I have photoshopped before and I can tell the signs. Black and white like that is easier, too, because you don't have to deal with fixing the lighting and color difference problems you get with color images. And I don't want all of the characters in that picture to be facing imminent death--that walker is not stopping anytime soon!

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: tridecagirl on April 03, 2011, 12:35:48 AM
Here's my final thoughts - and I've put a lot of pondering into this.

It's made out of two actual picture.

Picture 1: For some reason, a wedding is needed. Maybe for political pull? Of course, no one wants to actually go through with it. (Think Barlow giving away the Leviathan...) But Deryn can't do it, because she's a girl, and there's no way she's getting through all those tux fittings with no one figuring out. At this point, Alek knows, but he's got that darn famous face. So he dresses up as Deryn - it looks like he's wearing a wig, giving him two hairlines, and he's wearing the classic perplexed-alarmed expression that he has every other chapter. Not a Deryn expression, and not Deryn features either. Volger is in the background, facepalming and asking 'why'd the stupid prince do this for the Darwinists. Even he can't be THIS thick.' And Dr. Barlow's comforting him saying she has a plan and everything will be alright. However, the bride wasn't fooled by this switch, knows exactly who Alek/Deryn is, and is about to terminate him. Bovril is on the run, because he knows something's going down.

Picture 2: If you look closely at the face of the walker pilot, it's either Deryn, or Alek is the girliest looking guy since Justin Bieber. I can think of only one thing that would inspire such suicidal rage - Alek. My guess is, they were both in that epic walker - perhaps the Goliath... - and Alek got shot or otherwise injured. It looks like a walker that can fit more than two people, so perhaps Klopp or Bauer is at the controls. Meanwhile, Deryn is HELLA pissed, and grabs Alek's helmet and his sword and what my brother identified as a German pistol (notice she's holding the sword badly - Alek would do better than that) and prepares to wreak bloody vengeance on whoever hurt her crush.

Just my thoughts.

Here's my thoughts-
1. Definitly a prank.
2. The girl in the pic doesn't look like Lilit to me. (seems like) Lilit has darker skin in Behemoth... (oh yea, there's also the part about Lilit having no reason to kill Deryn)
3. Looks like a mash between 3 pics:
   * Deryn marrying a Lilit-look-alike
   *Pirate walker charging
   *Alek in a fighting position

I have to say though, if it was real it would be a very interesting plot twist...  ;)

Doesn't seem like an April fools to me. Scott did mention that he wasn't going to tell the chapter because it'd be too spoilery, so my thoughts are it's near the end of the book, when Alek knows Deryn's secret and has charged in to rescue her and declare his undying love. I have no  clue what Deryn would be doing marrying someone (Lilit?), but there's definitely Alek yelling something like "get your hands of my girl! Oh, hey, Deryn."

But yeah, that's just my messed-up interpretation.

Hello ......
 

I have sevral ideas i wish to express

1 maybe the groom is Jaspert ........
2if it is a mash up i think that the groom is Alek and the bride is Deryn and that for some reason thay are dressed as othe people (maybe beacaus Alek is royalty )
and they are waiting for somthing and Alek is all anxios and Deryn is ready to defend him and herself . and I say its Alek and Deryn beacus a ) I really really really want it to be  and B) I HAVE COMPAIRED THE FACES TO THOSE IN THE OTHER BOOKS AND COMCLUDED THEY ARE THE SAME ! ( oh dam caps lock sorry)
3 maybe Bovril is just in mid jump .
4 I actualy think this is some sort of mash up because Keith never draws backround in most of his picture .
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Saintpurr on April 03, 2011, 04:18:42 AM
also I think its a mash up because even tho a huge stormwalker is storming through no one seems to notice it
and maybe it is Litit and shes a German spy!
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: LiterateChick on April 03, 2011, 04:20:25 AM
Hey newbie! Trust me, as long as you don't mind much fangirishness and off-topicness you won't regret joining us. :D

 :o OMG it could totally be Jaspert! That would make a lot of sense! And that could be Deryn crashing through the wall to save her brother from certain death at the hands of some crazy girl with Alek at the controls of some stolen pirate walker! I never thought of that, good idea. Although I don't think that Lillit is a German spy, that doesn't seem to be how she rolls. ^-^

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: ItalianRose5 on April 03, 2011, 01:05:33 PM
I'm going with... wait for it... dream/photoshop!  The top part of the pictures is a totally plausible thing.  That could totally come from a part in the book.

But the bottom?  It has to be a dream (I'm guessing Deryn's).  Because I don't really see Barlow and Volger acting that way, Deryn would never agree to marry a girl, and Bovril as the ringbearer?  Cute but totally cheesy.  It's not really a cheesy series. 

So anyway, Scott better clear this up soon.  It's already April 2 here in the states and in my time zone we're only an hour away from April 3.  If some explaining doesn't get done soon, my brain really will explode.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Hello Im...insert name on April 03, 2011, 08:14:50 PM
I think it is real but it's just 4 or 5 pictures from the book put together (pay attention to the haze)

Layers:
1. The wedding (clearly aboard the Leviathan- Glowworms)
2. Sormwalker and the soldiers
3. The boards (?- I noticed that they weren't that detailed)
4. Alek (if you look, the haze cuts his body off before it meets the walker's hatch)
5. The background (I'm pretty sure if Alek crashed a wedding in a walker, there would have to be some pretty big doors if he didn't end up breaking the wall down)
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Hello Im...insert name on April 03, 2011, 08:32:44 PM
So here are some of my theories from each picture.

1. Deryn has to marry Lilit (for any of the interchangable reasons we've come up with) and it was all going according to plan until Alek barged in and said Deryns a girl (Deryn's "don't turn around, don't turn around look/Volger's facepalm "Alek's an idiot..."). I don't know why the girl (I think it's Lilit) is pulling the knife. Maybe they were going to fake Deryn's death so she wouldn't have to reveal her secret or something, and Alek thinks Lilit is actually trying to kill her so he barges in. Or maybe he knows Deryn's secret and he falls in love with her and he stands up at the "speak now or forever hold your peace" part...ugh so many possibilities! But I'm pretty sure it has to do with Alek making a spectacle of himself.

Anyways, whatever is happening in that one, it's definitely going according to Dr. Barlow's plan...

2. Some random battle with pirates(YES! :D) that is awesomely epic! Maybe they want Alek as a hostage or something...

3. Something got destroyed...duh.

4. Alek being awesomely epic in a battle! But he seems really peeved, so maybe Deryn or one of his men got really hurt? Maybe Volger died or something (I hate myself for saying that's possible). I've also acknowledged the comments on the fact that Alek looks a lot like Deryn in that picture. That person is also carrying a WWI German standard army-issue pistol. If that's Deryn my guess is they are in Germany/ in battle with the Germans ('cause Alek has an Austrian pistol (check the Leviathan Illustration "struggle on the ice") That's the only way they could've picked one up) and she is disguised as Alek and acting as a decoy so Alek can escape, doe something, ect. Wait a second..that's not Alek's uniform!!!! It's a German one! Maybe Deryn/ Alek is undercover in the German Army! (secret agent music starts playing)
Oh my god, maybe that's what the wedding is about! They want to fake Deryns death so she can go undercover!
...nah too complicated.

5. Idk about the background, but it looks fancy smancy. The walls are papered so it can't be a church...a palace maybe?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Hello Im...insert name on April 03, 2011, 08:40:36 PM
Yep I checked it, whoever that is, Alek or Deryn, they are dressed as a German officer, holding a German gun, with a calvary sword!

If you haven't noticed, that sword is definitely NOT a fencing saber.
1. The hilt is different
2. It's sharp. I mean reeeaaaal sharp.

I think they're both Deryn. The two scenes have to be from different picutres, so it's possible.

It's true - the person in the walker, whoever it is, doesn't belong in the pirate walker. Which is sad, becasue he/she now only has two lethal weapons.
It's been pointed out that it's Volger's sword, plus a German pistol and uniform. Maybe Volger got killed, and the person (who could honestly be either Deryn or Alek, they both look femenine) is out for revenge. I can see it now.

German soldier: Hahah! I have killed the annoying man with the mustache!
Deryn: Bad idea. Alek's going to be pissed.
German soldier: I'm not afraid of a scrawny little boy who... *stops as ominous noises come through door*
ALek: *bursts in screaming bloody murder with Volger's sword and a Mauser pistol*
Deryn: Told you.

I guess this problem's being worked on... that's a good thing! I'm actually kind of glad that I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.

Anyway, a loris in a moustache! Awesome! A little Volger copycat I guess! :) I'm personally relieved it was a joke, and I'm glad it's Lilit. Though  must say, I hope Deryn really was photoshopped in! I like the Lilit marrying Jaspert kind of idea! :)

Do y'all think that loris was Borvil or Larry?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on April 06, 2011, 01:47:10 PM
Larry, I think. Bovril has light fur and darker spots. The other loris is darker looking, at least in the one picture we have of it.

I have also been considering the old April fool's picture some more. I am definitely thinking more and more that Deryn is actually just walking Lilit down the aisle to meet an unseen groom whom she plans to use her knife on (and who is the focus of Deryn's wary glance). Also, I wonder if Keith has started working on the art book that comes out next year... some of the pictures could possibly be from that too, if that is the case....

And, I am very glad that the forum problem is now fixed.  ;D I decided to wait it out rather than make a new account.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Dude, it's obviously Larry. Bovril is lighter with dark stripes.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Feather on April 06, 2011, 01:51:55 PM

Why would Larry imitate Volger? Volger hates all furry, adorable life.  I can see Borvil doing that, because Alek likes Volger, but Larry?

Could be... That picture blew my brain. After a few minutes, I just couldn't think about it anymore. Too much... Too many possibilities... I mean, heck, there could be like three plus real pictures in that one image. Those three plus could all be from different chapters and places... They may not relate at all. Or maybe they do. It's just too much for my tiny brain to comprehend.

Dr. Barlow also likes Volger! (I do not care what Scott says!)  ;)

On a more serious, non-fangirl shipping note. The Loris looks as if he is thinking critically, almost like a human. Maybe the Loris can display human reasoning.

Since Bovril was with Alek and Deryn, the other loris (Larry) was with Volger and Barlow. So he would obviously bond with them, and get his ideas off of them too.

Haha. I chuckled a bit when he stopped breathing. Even I, with no survival training besides open fire cooking, would know not to do that if there were unknown men in my room.

But nya. I loved it after the first few chapters. The only thing I've drawn since reading the books have been Leviathan inspired or fanart....

That it did. Although it was amusing none the less....
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Yes, but we already knew from Leviathan that we were in for awesomeness, so it didn't really matter if it started slowly. :D
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Yeah, we were all just wanting some mushy Alek/Deryn stuff, which occurs in the first chapter. Then it gets exciting.

Every time I re-read Behemoth I am always surprised at how what I think of as the "second" half of the book is only the last quarter of the book. Deryn doesn't meet up with Alek in Istanbul until well past the halfway point of the novel. I wonder if that was Scott's original plan, but things shifted as he wrote out the beginning with too much detail. Because I definitely feel that there were supposed to be more scenes about the Commitee and Zaven.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: ArtfullyInsane on April 07, 2011, 12:30:47 PM
I think that second books can bear to be a little slower than the first, since we're all hyped up on the awesomeness of the first one.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Goliath had better be pretty awesome. or i might cry in sadness. :'(     to me though, i would be even more excited if it had a happy ending. . . but looking at his other books, he doesn't seem to do that to much. . .  so I hope he changes this trend with goliath.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on April 07, 2011, 11:40:26 PM
I think it will have a happy ending, if only for the reason that it is based on the genre of boys adventure stories, which always have a happy ending. Alek will just be kind of upset at not getting what he wants, but then he'll realize, as the Rolling Stones so eloquently put it, "You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you get what you need." XD

Just going back to the picture.

I'm pretty sure it's Larry, it's a great pic haha. The loris' mimic people, maybe the older they grow the more they mimic a specific person both verbally AND physical, perhaps Larry has for some reason to choose Volger as his life's mimic.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Feather on April 08, 2011, 10:57:29 AM


That would be extremely interesting. I really would like to know that reason...

If Larry was doing that to communicate, he would just say "Volger". Therefore, his motivation is a mystery to me.

Post by: ItalianRose5 on April 10, 2011, 06:39:42 AM
I don't think Varlow would happen because Dr. Barlow is married (Barlow is not her maiden name people).  So unless Scott comes up with a back story that her husband died or something (which I think he lived until the 1960s or so) I don't think it will happen.  But... you never know in the World of Westerfeld.

I hope we experience moderate depression with an open ending that allows us good fanfics.

92% is a pretty high chance, though, so I'm quite optimistic.  ;D I guess someone may die making it 8% sad... anyway, you wouldn't get too depressed if someone told you that you had a 92% chance of survival if you were sick.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

I'm hoping the 8% he was refering to is for those people who want Alek and Deryn to die and hate the thought of them as a couple. I'm hoping the "depression" will not be for the Alek/Deryn people, but for the antiAlek/Deryn people.

I'm not gonna get my hopes up on them actually ending up together, but I don't wanna see some romance on both sides.

I think it makes sence...
Clarification: Did you mean I Do want to see some romance on both sides?
Or I want Deryn to fall hopelessly in love with him, he falls in love, then she hates him, then he hates her, then she falls in love, he begins to like her, he does something Alek-ish... And so on? But I understood you.

It could be anyones, really, if someone was dressing up for a disguise, and the little loris picks it up and starts imitating Volger.

That's my interpretation, anyway...

Well, I guess this is the place to talk about the world cloud (http://scottwesterfeld.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Goliath-Word-cloud-bowdlerized.jpg) for Goliath Scott has just posted.

Someone pointed out that Deryn is big and Dylan is small.  ;D And "lady," "miss" and "girl."

"York" so I guess they will be going to New York. And Eddie Malone is pretty big.  ;D Also, I love how "end" and "message" are beside each other. I wish "last" wasn't so big! Well, at least "hand" "face" and "eyes" are there, you know what that means. ;)

Gosh, I wanna know what the spoiler was!  >:(
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on April 20, 2011, 03:57:13 PM
I like to think that "kissed" could be the missing word. But that's just me getting my hopes up ;D

Also there is no "Tazza" "Goliath" or "Japan".... :-\

I'm curious about "Rogers" and "Hearst". I'm almost sure "Hearst" is a publisher.... I also noticed how "Dylan" is not so big; and the words "Miss" and "girl" get me excited ;D

Oh! And "Two" is rather large....

Post by: waxesnostalgic on April 21, 2011, 12:14:51 AM
The word cloud, it's linked on my post.

Yes, I noticed the no Japan thing too. I take it this means they won't stay long there. Istanbul is on there, but not Japan??

I do wonder who Rogers and Hearst are... new characters, yes.  :) But confusing because Hurst is on the Leviathan.  And "two," I hadn't noticed two.  ;D Still, there's also "never" and "last"  :(

The missing word is probably one of three things. Action (like kissing, but probably not), the name of some new creature, or the name of some new character (probably historical because we would then know who they are--and he did say an historical person would appear).
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on April 21, 2011, 03:51:47 AM
I don't even want to think about the words "never" and "last" :(

And I just realized that "Dr." is bigger then "Barlow". I would've thought that those would be the same size. Perhaps we'll meet another "Dr."?

Also, the words "look" "good" "loris" together made me giggle. But alas, no mention of "mustache" ;)
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: jessinator11 on April 21, 2011, 09:36:41 AM
I'm sticking with the notion that the missing spoiler world was either "love" "forever" (if that wasn't already on there..i didn't get a chance to look all the way through) or "wedding."  Definate wishful thinking on my part, but hey! One can dream, can't they?

Did any of you gawk at Keith's compositions until you started drooling on the pages...?


(Guilty...the guy's eye for detail is incredible! I mean, he created the affect of showing tendons and ligaments in Deryn's hand...with shadowing!!  I didn't even think that was possible!!!

Not with that picture, but there was this picture in another book he illustrated, it mostly consisted of a giant bird thing, and that was detailed enough, but then I looked closer and saw that in the trees above the bird were a bunch of little bats! And they were incredibly detailed, but they were only about the size of my thumbnail! That's one of the best things about his art, you can look at it a hundred times and still see something new every time.

Post by: waxesnostalgic on May 03, 2011, 03:57:15 PM
Still, it is nice. I don't think we missed anything by not voting for it, though. XD

One of them is probably Deryn, but I guess it's impossible to say for sure. The person on the bottom is more Deryn-shaped, and the illustration is called, "hooking the package," which is what that person is doing. Interesting Siberian (?) headwear on the bear's riders... And we already sort-of knew that those were the bears mentioned in the Kirkus review...
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Clankinist on May 03, 2011, 04:01:17 PM
Yup. I've been staring at it for a while looking for anything that might give us clues.
'Hooking the package' seems more up Deryns alley, but I wonder what the package is and who is wearing the kite.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

I agree, sorta. I'm not really out on the streets cheering, and I'm not proud that we had to kill someone. I'm happy for the families who have lost loved ones in 9/11 and have finally gained closure. And if I had lost a loved one, I don't think I can guarantee that I wouldn't be out on the streets cheering. I was kinda saying that about my nation as a whole, not just me ('cause theere are people here from eveyrwhere!)

On a happier note, I'm glad the picture was finally released! It looks like Deryn on the bottom there. Wonder why Alek is involved in a Darwinist mission?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: tridecagirl on May 03, 2011, 11:19:06 PM
Are you sure he is? WE can't see faces - he might be sitting inside somewhere warm, drinking tea. That's more his style. And I can't remember - is he officially a prisoner? Because if so, he might be shut up somewhere.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: LiterateChick on May 03, 2011, 11:48:20 PM
I think that's definantly a Russian fighting bear. The hats thoes guys are wearing are very Russian.  :P And did anyone else notice the thing sticking up from the bears back that looks like a perfect fit for the hook being held by the swinging person? I bet that's the package, whatever the package is.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Seven on May 04, 2011, 01:05:36 AM
I doubt the Darwinist trust the Clankers enough to let them help them on a mission such as this. All Alek has ever done is help them, and they still treat him like a criminal. A reoccurring theme in this series.

Also, both uniforms are Darwinist.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on May 04, 2011, 01:56:51 AM
Yeah, that's probably Newkirk, or Rigby, or some other character and not Alek.

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: ItalianRose5 on May 04, 2011, 08:42:47 AM
I'm guessing that the package is Tesla' death ray (he built one of those in real life).  There was a synopsis somewhere that mentioned a weapon that would destroy half the world.  I think that's it.  The technical name when he created it was a "directed-energy weapon"

Sorry, don't mean to change the topic, but they have the body. So yes, we know. Plus I heard they released videos of the shoot-out. Don't know why anyone would want to see those though-they sound morbid to me.

I don't think it's big enough to be the whole death-ray. Maybe a part of it? ARGH, this anticipation is killing me! Oh, and didn't you love the bear's pointy hat?

*facepalm* Yeah, I think he's an official prisoner. I mean, they were treating him nicely and all, but he had a guard, and they're not just going to say "He's the prince of Austria, probably one of the most valuable POWs ever, but we should probably just let him go because 'Dylan' Shapr will be mad if we don't.

About the suicide thing... I probably wouldn't go that far (AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU!), I would probably just give my copy a brutal death and send Scott a STRONGLY WORDED LETTER expressing my displeasure in his version of youth elixir (he said that the tears of his readers keep him young).

And I don't think that the package is nearly big enough for any part of the Tesla coil/death ray thing. Maybe it's something connected to it.

With the first one, I freaked out. With the second one, I laughed. This one just seemed to flop. Nothing really special. But I guess you can't show all the amazing a shocking pictures first, it would give away to much of the plot.

I thought the same, and I agree. I think it's partially because we saw some of it, and partially because of the stunning lack of spoilerly in the picture. And, since we saw some of it before, we were right in most of our initial speculations when we already examined it, and there was nothing left to say.

His is doing way more than normal authors do. I like to think it's because he cares about us. I mean, how many authors give out pictures from their upcoming books? (I know that they don't have any pictures anyway (sucks to be them), but it's an example) We should be grateful that he's even giving us this much.

Agreed. Alek, for all his obliviousness, is suprisingly unhatable.
But then again, I find most people generally hard to hate in the first place. Hating just makes life tough, you know.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

I remember thinking, when I first started reading Leviathan, that I wasn't going to like him. But he's changed so much! That's exactly why I love him as a character!

That's actually my favorite thing about books: Fully fledged and developed characters. :)

I think Alek and Deryn are some of the best developed characters I've read in a while.  At least since Harry Potter.  But seriously, the last time I liked two characters this much was Ron and Hermione.

I like the series about as much as Harry Potter, but I am actually much more attached to Alek and Deryn than any of the characters in Harry Potter. Go figure... XD

He's a lot more dynamic than Deryn, and I kept wondering if she would change as much as he will. But I doubt it... From the plot descriptions of Goliath it looks like more character change may be coming for Alek. I imagine it will be very hard for him to give up what he thinks he deserves and wants so much.

I love stories about royals and aristocrats so this book was right up my alley. I love Alek and all his ways, I wouldn’t even say I am exasperated with him. I just wish he wasn’t so trusting. Like even with The Committee, I did not trust those people, and didn’t think he should trust them either. I was just waiting for someone to betray him. I don’t think he is stupid though, that seems a bit harsh.

We don't really know a whole lot about him. On one hand, he must be smarter than the other middies or have some talent or connections in order to stay on board when all the other middies left in the beginning of Levi. On the other, it does say somewhere that he slept during lessons. I think he's an average boy, who like most people, pales in comparison to Deryn.  ;D

Don't talk to me about protective. I was 13 when my mom decided I was old and adequate enough to swim in a pool alone without drowning. I got a Facebook a little while back, it's not really all that. You're not missing much, and you can get your information here, complete with speculation. :)

I just never feel fully satisfied after I read something. All that effort and little outcome, (thinking is hard).
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on May 26, 2011, 07:27:08 AM
I normally feel pretty satisfied with endings. What I don't like is when they drag it out in uneccessary epilogues and sequels. When the plot is over, the book should end. I don't really feel like it's a lot of effort to make it through a book. However, I am also prejudiced against long books, and only read them if they have had really good reviews, no matter how awesome the plot sounds. Most long books don't need to be that long, anyway...

Only on a few particular occasions have a wanted more (like in my favorite book ever, when the female love interest decides to go find the male love interest again... tomorrow. Then the book ends.  :()

Post by: Lizzeh-wa on May 26, 2011, 07:37:05 AM
I have read waaaaay too many books. There are only like 15 original plots and everything is a variation on that.
Then theres the way that theres always some partially deveoped element that I wish I could have read more about.
All books have like 1 of only a few endings.. Like in Peeps, uglies, and So Yesterday, the Endings are Basically like, "we're waching you."

Yeah. I don't like it when books have all that long boring nonsense in between the excitement or when they randomly add sequels (like with the new pirates of the carribean) Uglies was cool, but Extras was a little uh extra, even though it was awesome...

Not true! Scott's books have a very original plot (have you read other books with flying whales in them!?)
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on May 26, 2011, 07:45:27 AM
I would have to say that flying whales aren't really part of the plot, they are part of the setting. But I do think that Leviathan's plot is unusual, I don't think I've ever read a book that had the same sort of dramatic irony thing with Alek & Deryn going on.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Lizzeh-wa on May 26, 2011, 08:12:35 AM
Scott-la's book is AWESOME. All his books are, uh.. I have a love hate relationship with books in general. Leviathan has a bit of Mulanness, But it is still very different from it. Umm.. YEah. Goliath will either make this series awesome for me or kill it.

Post by: ArtfullyInsane on May 26, 2011, 08:18:39 AM
I was very satisfied with many books, and there are many that I think could've benefited from another book. But some (like most books about vampires) are just pathetic.

Hard to tell anything from the others, but looks like a giant bird/aeroplane thing in Number 2. Probably not too revealing, I'm more into people pictures, I guess. I want to know who's on the plane. XD

Looking again at picture one what is that weird glowy thing at the top? A light? Someone's head? They'd have to be really, really tall, or having an out-of-body experience. XD Maybe is just looks like it it glowing, and is really someone standing on a box.  ;D Well, whatever it is, it's behind that grey box.  :( Is someone helping Deryn pulling the sleeping person from the sleeping bag? The person has long hair, I think.

Last time he waited until there were 200 votes, I believe... Anyway, when it got close to the end I started calling friends telling them to go and vote. XD So, definitely vote, it will probably help them be revealed faster.

Here are the links for you Kieya (if that's what you wanted):

So, now we know what chapters they are from too... I hadn't thought to look. So, number one is Chapter 10, right before Chapter 11 (hmm.... those of you who read the spoiler thread know what I'm talking about...  ;D)

OMG they're all so good! I don't know if I want to vote for the first one (For some reason it looks to me like Deryn's helping some beasty or other give birth. I'm not entirely sure why. :P) or the second! ("Firefight in the air" just sounds so epic!)

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: tridecagirl on June 03, 2011, 01:13:04 AM
I voted for picture 1. Here's my interpretation:

1: Seeing the various body parts, Deryn is in a bunking quarters. She looks like she's exerting herself, and if you follow her arms (which you can't see) it looks like she's pulling the cloth under someone's head away. It's dark - maybe Alek? Since Newkirk has his own cabin. But would they have CLankers bunking with everyone else? Especially a prince? Whoever he is, she probably tried to wake them the normal way, found that they (like most males) just ignored her, and decided more radical methods. What's next to her? NOt sure. THat's why I voted for it.

2: A fight scene. These are great and everything, but I prefer characters. It's probably Deryn on a huxley (note the two ropes going off camera). THe feathers make me wonder - close up of strafing hawk, or do they have griffins now? And yay, an Austria Hungarian zeppelin. Friend or foe? Considering the picture's entitled Firefight, I'm going to go with Foe.

3:  It's either the Leviathan with weird texture or a zeppelin under crazy storm clouds. It's far away enough that whatever in the middle (if it's people) will be tiny. Unless, of course, it's the TESLA CANNON!  ;D Anyway, I wasn't interested as much.

LOL! Kieya, that's the point!! :D Scott's hiding a bit of the picture from us, and wants us to vote for which one we want to see in full! That's why we are all voting for the numbers. He'll reveal the winning picture probably in a day or two. I still choose number three!
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

uhh yeah i'll go with 3

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: Shadow on June 03, 2011, 05:28:18 AM
Wow, they're all amazing!!!
I kinda thought along the lines of tridecagirl with analysis. I went for one. I just think Deryn waking up Alek (or anyone else) in a radical way would be hilarious and amusing. And the look on her face....

And btw, the person who posted some other person's fanfic under the name 'SKY-LA : )' was NOT me. Just letting you know.  :D
I posted under my real (first) name.

Argh those really long fanfic posts were really annoying! at first I thought they were real excerpts because of where they were, but then the writing was much different than the books and I was like, no, this HAS to be a fanfiction. but I voted one.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: By_the_Books on June 03, 2011, 06:33:08 AM
I went with Numero Uno! Deryn's expression is to awesome. I just want to know what's happening! And it says a careful extraction. Doesn't look to careful to me, though... ???

Her style is more: "Get out of bed you barking bumrag befoere I  bloody remove you!"

Most definitely. That's so typically Deryn!

Maybe they are stealing something from a clanker ship.

Possibly. She looks quite determined about whatever it is.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: PhoenixAshes on June 03, 2011, 06:53:41 AM
I'm still sticking with number three; I really think that annoying block could be hiding something huge to the plot of the story! And it's chapter 19, which means it's part of the Rising Action. I just think that this picture will give a better idea to what is happening in the story. I really want to know what is looming menacingly over Alek and/or Deryn (someone's gotta be in that picture, right?). 

I know a lot of people are voting for number one because it's Deryn sneaking around (and her expression is awesome!), but I think it'll just be like the "Secrets in the Rookery" reveal. We'll see what's going on, but we won't know what's going on without some kind of dialogue.

Man, Scott sure knows how to torture us! How can he expect us to choose from three amazing (and infuriatingly mysterious) pictures! He should just show us all three! ;D

So, by my count so far (hopefully it's more or less correct) I have:

Picture #1: 96 votes
Picture #2: 11 votes
Picture #3: 25 votes

Hmmm.... Do I detect another landslide of a win? ::) :D

The "Hooking the Package" picture was part of the first picture vote. It came in second, I believe...

I like the idea of an Austrian Zeppelin, I wonder how Alek would react to having his family's seal on something he's fighting against?

And I love Deryn's expression in pic 1! But doesn't Alek have his own cabin now that everyone knows that he's a prince?

scott said that he would stop the voting at around 300 people we are around 250 now.  i counted up the votes but i was tired when i did so the numbers might be a bit off also they are rounded by 5's to

picture one: a careful extraction

135 votes!!

picture two: firefight in the air

15 votes!!

picture three: the coming storm

30 votes!!

ahain i was very tired so this is what i got the numbers are also rounded but ither way its not the exact number of votes that count just which has the most so picture one in this case
a careful extraction

well for the first picture reveal when he had us vote before he ended up revealing one of the other pictures at yet ANOTHER art reveal, so it is actaully possible that you will be seeing one of the options that doesnt get chosen at a later date.

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: tridecagirl on June 04, 2011, 05:55:10 AM
Ditto. Too tall to be a person, unless it's Alek pulling his stand on a box thingy. I think she's waking him up though, so I really want to know what the tall thing is!

I like that they're entrusting something important to a scrawny midshipman and a prisoner of war. "Here, Clanker enemy! We trust you around important stuff with no guards at all! Have at it!"

Also interesting - if you look at the architecture, it's very linear, not curvy. And I don't see any messenger lizard tubes. I don't think they're in the Leviathan. Stealing off a clanker ship?

It could be a component for the death ray... That was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. Maybe a scaled model? And they're stealing it so that the enemy can't use it to build there own? Although why that would be trusted to a middie and a POW is beyond me, and kinda makes me think that they're just doing this on their own time, or under the orders of Barlow or something, not the captain.

Yeah, for one, I really don't think Dylan could sneak out for the weekend to steal a deathray, and Alek definately couldn't....but it's a good theory  ;D!
Speaking of which, what is he doing there? He's a bloody POW....Maybe they're on a mission, and they needed him as a translator or something and there are guards waiting for them outside? I dunno. Or maybe he escaped again!

First: IT'S UP!!! OMG IT'S UP!!!!  *obnoxious fan girl scream*

Second: I love Bovril in this picture.  As Deryn and Alek are killing themselves to get the watever-it-is, Bovril's just chillin on Alek's shoulder like "Hey! Look at that!"

Third: the guy who's snoring is my favorite (which also leads me to believe they're stealing this, but why would they go through the sleeping men of an enemy ship?  What are you doing to me Scott...)

Urgh... I was typing out a detailed reaction post and my stupid unremoveable laptop keyboard shortcuts deleted my whole post.  >:(

Anyway... I was at my internet-less Dad's house this weekend and could only see the picture on my sister's smartphone. It looks much better on a bigger computer screen.

- I think that they are definitely on the Leviathan somewhere, probably running around doing secret work for Barlow or Tesla (who could be on the ship by this point, I guess). Might also have something to do with the package in the bears image, maybe...  :-\ I wonder why its so important. The coils make me think of Tesla.

- I love Bovril's expression too. Alek and Deryn have the exact same expression on their faces, which is kind of funny. XD I wonder if they are angry or arguing about something, say, a secret, as well though... or maybe I'm grasping at straws here.  :P

- Snoring guy is funny, but I also like the guy sleeping with his cap over his face.  ;)

Maybe I will remember more of my original post later...

Post by: leviathanseries on June 07, 2011, 11:11:14 AM
Well, I had a lot of reading to catch up on.

But from the general ideas people were giving, I saw no one had suggested maybe they're going through an infirmary.  The people around might not just be sleeping... maybe they're all sick. I don't know... sounds kinda wrong now, but it's just a thought. And I do agree with the whole, Alek and Deryn are pulling a mini Tesla Cannon thing. Maybe the Leviathan tried to recreate one to counteract the German one? Or they snuck onto a German ship, to steal the weapon! As bait for the Tesla inventor man we are supposed to meet in Goliath? So he can work on it? So he can dismantle it? Sabotage? Too many ideas I have, that probably won't even happen! :)
It's all so much, I can't wait for the book! :D

I don't think people who were sick/injured would be placed so closely together. Also, could the ship even function with so few people running it? It's probably just the riggers' sleeping quarters on the ship, doesn't Deryn describe it in the first book?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: ArtfullyInsane on June 07, 2011, 11:35:14 AM

Post by: tridecagirl on June 07, 2011, 11:49:31 AM
Again, I don't think it's on the Leviathan. In that large room, there are no message lizard tubes anywhere! Plus, the architecture is linear rather than curving.
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on June 07, 2011, 12:32:59 PM
It looks pretty curvy to me, especially those railings/bars. I wouldn't imagine that the riggers' sleeping quarters would be as fancy as the more prominent parts of the ship.

Anyway, where would they run into a German camp in the first 10 chapters of the book?
Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Title: Re: Picture Reveal

Guys! I think I figured out where they are! I almost thought they weren't on the Leviathan either, because like Tridecagirl said, there are no messenger lizard tubes. But I was examining the picture, and noticed the hatch-like door behind Alek, and it reminded me of a door to a cargo hold on a ship. Which gave me an idea and made me pull out my copy my of Behemoth to look at the picture "Keelhaul Drop" (class, please pull out your books and turn to page 249). ;)

Compare the two pictures:
http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/9092/behmothvsgoliath.jpg

That could be where there are! And I think the machine definitely has something to do with Tesla, though I don't know if they would have him on the Leviathan by chapter 10 or not. And I'm still not sure why all the men are sleeping there... maybe they're like guards or something... ::)
Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: waxesnostalgic on June 08, 2011, 03:38:05 AM
That sounds like a pretty good idea. Perhaps they are smuggling in secret cargo. I still really think that the railings look very Darwinist. They don't look Clanker at all.

Maybe it's an extraction from one part of Leviathan to the next. Like, I can extract myself from the basment and go up to the living room. I'm still in the house.  ;D

Title: Re: Picture Reveal
Post by: tridecagirl on June 08, 2011, 06:43:46 AM
Maybe the captain's being stupid (big surprise) and won't let them take it because it's a valuable weapon, but Dr. barlow knows it's too dangerous and must be destroyed, so she makes them steal it.?

Because Tesla cannons come raining down on him quite often. This is a fact. You see, I stole the one in Moonie's fic Now or Never so Alek and Deryn wouldn't die, then dropped it in Russia. They're probably still counting and VERY confused.

I thought that it was called "extraction" because they were maneuvering through a tight spot. I'm pretty sure I've heard that phrase before for that--as in, if you were trying to squeeze through a door that could only be opened a few inches or something or getting yourself free from being stuck somewhere.

Deryn: *Huffs* "Are you even lifting the barking thing, or am I doing all the work?"
Alek: "Just lift it a little higher" *shuffles machine around* "If I could just get a better grip...."
Deryn: "Alek, stop! Just stop, you ninny! This isn't working."
Alek: "Okay. Set it down a second. We need to think about this." *Starts to lower machine*

Guys! I think I figured out where they are! I almost thought they weren't on the Leviathan either, because like Tridecagirl said, there are no messenger lizard tubes. But I was examining the picture, and noticed the hatch-like door behind Alek, and it reminded me of a door to a cargo hold on a ship. Which gave me an idea and made me pull out my copy my of Behemoth to look at the picture "Keelhaul Drop" (class, please pull out your books and turn to page 249). ;)

Compare the two pictures:
http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/9092/behmothvsgoliath.jpg

That could be where there are! And I think the machine definitely has something to do with Tesla, though I don't know if they would have him on the Leviathan by chapter 10 or not. And I'm still not sure why all the men are sleeping there... maybe they're like guards or something... ::)

Look at the first picture in the link... I think it is from Behemoth. In the background is a big mountain, and it looks like there's a face in the mountain. I thought it was cool! :)

I missed all this because I was going to ban myself from the internet yesterday and today until I finished my July 4 dress, which I started on over a month ago. XD Well, at least I have a new dress.  ;D

Anyway, I voted Number two, because that was my second choice from a lot of the earlier ones, and one of the *spoiler* reviews mentioned something similar, and I wanted to know if it might be that...  ;) Still, I guess kappas will be cool. I don't think that picture will have much Alek or Deryn in it, though, and beasties are normally only important in context. And I vote for pictures based on likelihood of AlekxDeryn.  ;D

You made a dress. How FABULOUS! Can you post a picture?

And yes, you use pretty much my exact tactic for picture choosing - rating likelihood of Alek or Deryn being involved  :P

You know, they are kinda like I always imagined Katniss's monsters in Mockingjay. You know, the ones that smell like roses. Except that those ones were on there hind legs.

Now I know what a kappa is! I did a small project on Japanese religion, but I forgot to mention those. Thanks Scott!

My drama queen side tells me that the Germans have taken Alek captive, and the Levi crew recruits the Japanese navy for their sick army. That's what's gonna happen in my fanfic, except without the Japan thing.

The review that I mentioned actually just said that Deryn and Alek might be topside during a hurricane. (Hope that's not a big spoiler for anyone) But I guess it could be a Tesla cannon...

Anyway, for those of you who don't read Scott's blog, io9.com (http://www.io9.com/) will be handling the picture reveal on the 1st, and they might be a bit more prompt than Scott at reveals since they are, after all, a news publication. Last year they did the big picture of the elephant walker, so I've got my finger's crossed for another wide shot. Maybe...  :D

I guess I could never time travel, then.

It made me think things like:
"Have I lived LONGER than everyone else back at home because I had this super long day?"

Actually, the hours are just the same, it's your perception of time that your brain has processed then warped.

Sorry I am a little obsessed with time travel. Well my favorite season of Charmed had lots of time travel.

Also I have this idea where Deryn and Alek from the books meet Deryn and Alek in the future and future Deryn is all like 'Im a girl and im married to you' and than past Alek passes out.

Heh, I also feel a bit like sending them an e-mail asking them what's up, but it's probably just that they felt that they already had enough "important" news for the 1st (True Blood recap, apparently) and are just waiting until they feel they need it. Last year the picture reveal was given to them as an exclusive, so presumably they will be doing the same this year.

Also, they have definitely gained my readership for yesterday, as every time I would check I would end up spending hours reading their bizarre articles. I need to get a phone alert or something, because I still have 3 pages left on my research paper and it's due today!  >:( I blame them!

I must say, io9 is getting many more hits from me than normal.

Of course, that's because I didn't know about them before the FAFF post and I've been refreshing the page every hour...
And I'm probably going to boycott them unless there's a giant apology when they do post the image, if ever.

They done the roundup for the 3rd. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

I really don't know how to start a thread over there but on the roundups I would post asking where the art reviel was. (I was clearer than that) and I verified it and they said I would get an email when I was posted and so far no email.

Do they not want word to get out  ::)

I really hope Scott is enjoying Hawaii *glare at screen hopeing that Scott can feel my gaze*

It's better then that gibberish language used most of the time. Besides, be happy with the picture. Most authors wouldn't give us that much.

So we were right about who Hearst is... I like this picture, though I am rather disappointed that it's not the promised one that shows the Levi's tail. D: Still, it's an awesome landscape. :D

Post by: waxesnostalgic on August 05, 2011, 10:11:51 AM
I think it's pretty cool. I was expecting a wide landscape shot--and that's what we got. Remember that this is supposed to be a picture to draw in new readers (hence it being on io9 instead of Scott's blog) and not just to please us fans.

We get a lot more spoilers in the text, actually. The Leviathan will be docking at Hearst's mansion/movie studio (where a certain spoiler will probably happen, involving movies), and yes, the Leviathan is BIG.  ;D I had actually been hoping for  a a shot a bit like this in Behemoth but we didn't get one.

And, did anyone notice the construction walkers working in Hearst's studio? So, walkers can do something besides be war machines.  Now, if only there was a tiny picture of Alek and Deryn kissing on the rigging or something and then it would be really awesome. XD

Tomorrow's clue is about Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  You'll be multiplying a number from the book by 14.  (Saturday's clue is from The Deathly Hallows, you'll multiply the number by 7). When you enter http://quill.pottermore.com/correctnumber, you will be taken to a scholastic page about Harry Potter. The quill is in the banner ad at the top of the page, you have to catch the quill and you'll be taken to the registration page. "We can tell you that tomorrow’s clue (Day 6) will be released between 1:30pm and 4.00pm BST, and the final clue (Day 7) will be released between 12:30am and 3:00am BST on Saturday 6 August." (From pottermore insider) Here is a clock for BST (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=136), in case you live in a different time zone.  Hope that helps!


And yes, this post has everything to do with Leviathan and art xD

What's Pottermore?

A Harry Potter awesome site.  It's the only place the ebooks will be available, and it's also a forum/hangout, and we don't know what other epicness.  Beta spots are being given away to people who solve clues to find the magical quill this week, Saturday's the last day.  it opens in a few weeks or so for us.  The site opens to everyone else in October.

Also, I get the feeling since my last post's disappearance that I should stay more on topic?
Sorry...

Also, I can't see your post (or mine) outside of the topic summary. Does this mean it's been blocked or something? Or is my internet just being funky? I'm confused.
Anyhow, if I did something wrong, I apologize to whoever's in charge and blocked it or whoever reported it, I do realize that this is kind of off topic >.<
Could you please contact me if I did do something wrong so I know exactly what not to repeat? Thanks. I've been lurking for awhile, but I just started actually posting...

I was all "I thought I read everything and such, and I don't think that's bad unless pottermore is stalking the internet and taking down information about access, but that would be overkill D: Maybe it's too off-topic... I should go back to kurking );"

Also, on another pottermore note, MuggleNet's Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/MuggleNet) will also post when the clue is up, so you can set it to tweet to your phone for the time slot and then turn off the phone feature.  I have some friends who did that.  I just obsessively refreshed on the hour. xD

Post by: Rue128 on September 02, 2011, 04:16:08 AM
Your idea does make sense though. That huge thing on top can't be a gun and if not, it can't have been designed to blow up middies. It's either a cannon or camera and the picture title said "shoots Deryn" and Scott said Deryn doesn't die in Goliath. But then again, she could make some miraculous escape.

Post by: CorpseVendor on September 02, 2011, 05:02:00 AM
I think its a camera as well. Possibly a surveillance walker? If Deryn actually got shot from something that big, think of how big the bullets must be. and if the walker does have a gun and not a camera, I bet Deryn will use her awesomeness and jump off the cliff at the very last second ^^
What an art reveal! I can't wait!

It just seems a little over the top to make a giant walker to carry around a little camera. It could also be  a movie prop, with a camera on it disguised as a gun.

Anyway, I'm excited to see what it really is in 18 days.  ;D
