Title: Leviathan
Post by: KampnKarl on March 14, 2012, 09:09:55 AM
Since I am sure I am not the only one who stays awake at night and ponders the possibility of this alternate universe, and whom I would want to be and why. This is for all of you who do the same. Write your thoughts on fabrication possibilities, or who you would want to be, why you want to be them. As for me, I would want to be Alek... Why? you may ask. Well, it is because I love his lifestyle, I would want to pilot walkers and go onto the Leviathan and be "friends" with Deryn or rather Dylan. Also, for those of you who think that when you die it would be awesome to be "reincarnated" in the late 19th Century and in this alternate universe....I'm right there with you. Also, another thought, if I die and I get to choose how I spend eternity, it would be in Alek's shoes, then wipe my mind, and do it all over again.

Keep it going with your thoughts and wishes.
Also a little side note, a want this to be a movie, and she should be in it as Deryn ----> http://leviathanseries.tumblr.com/

I would be cool to be in mass effect, but I would most likely die right away. Wouldn't last very long

Id like to be in Halo.

Halo is cool but you dont get to chose were you go like in mass efffect. Cortana is boss and so are marines but spartans suck!

the marines are the real badasses. they dont have super strength yet they are superior to the covenant when it comes to ground battles but in space we get our asses whipped.

Master Chief did most of the work.

what about the ODSTs? they are sooooo badass.

Umm... back on topic please? I would be Jaspert, because I am a joking person and I think he is too.
Title: Re: Leviathan

Thanks Austin-wa, it did seem to get a little off topic, but that's what forums are about I suppose. Jaspert is a joking person, but there isn't much about him in leviathan, it would be cool to see more of him. But I dont think we shall be seeing much of anyone anymore, on account of the end of the series. I wish Scott would write more. But anyway, I like your choice.

Jaspet was ok.

Hey deathchicken, you seem to be quite the downer here, first you are hating on the Marines, then on Jaspert, but it is all cool i guess. Keep up the good work.

What? Im not a downer. The Marines are from a video game called Halo and I just said Jaspet was ok.

I would click the link, but my phone won't let me click links. If I couldn't be Jaspert, I would probably be  Deryn, sadly.

Is it like some blog or something?
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: KampnKarl on March 14, 2012, 11:54:12 AM
I am well aware of the game series, I am just saying, you were downing the "Kickass" space marines. They were cool man, especially the black sergeant from the early games. He was great. All time favorite.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: deathchicken on March 14, 2012, 11:56:33 AM
I really have no respect for the Marines; since they die every f*cking time.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: KampnKarl on March 14, 2012, 11:56:45 AM
Yeah it is a blog sort of thing, it is extremely new, and when I say extremely, I mean about 16 hours ago. Its a rough estimate. Anyway, it is just a place for fans of the Leviathan series to go a talk about the book, or anything else, really.

Now that I understand, they are quite useless when not gunning in the a vehicle you are driving. Plus they always get in the way when I am driving so I always accidentally run the over.

I see.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: SecretAgentCaboose on March 14, 2012, 11:59:27 AM
Haha. Well, that would be funny. Ohh! Captain Keyes would be Captain Hobbes!
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: deathchicken on March 14, 2012, 12:00:15 PM
Who would MC be?
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: SecretAgentCaboose on March 14, 2012, 12:00:50 PM
Deryn. Of course.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: deathchicken on March 14, 2012, 12:01:45 PM
Hahaha! Funny, no shes not even close to being as Badass as MC.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: SecretAgentCaboose on March 14, 2012, 12:03:11 PM
Well she is the most bad@$$ person in the series...
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: deathchicken on March 14, 2012, 12:03:49 PM
Sorry but thats Bovril.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: KampnKarl on March 14, 2012, 12:05:37 PM
Funny how the game is able to be compared to Halo. Fascinating. MC would have to be a main character, so either Deryn who does badass things, or Alek the guy, whom is not as badass. I would have to say Deryn as well. Not as badass as MC but still gets it. Also, who would be Cortanna the AI? or the Oracle?
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: deathchicken on March 14, 2012, 12:06:36 PM
Cortana would be Bovril.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: KampnKarl on March 14, 2012, 12:08:45 PM
Now that I agree with, it makes sense, but then it would have to make MC either Alek or Deryn, and the more badass of the two is Deryn.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: SecretAgentCaboose on March 14, 2012, 12:10:44 PM
I have an Idea! Why dont you make a thread that was specifically made for comparing Halo characters with Levi characters?
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: deathchicken on March 14, 2012, 12:11:08 PM
Ill make it!
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: KampnKarl on March 14, 2012, 12:13:19 PM
Heh, what a great idea.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: Starbuck on March 14, 2012, 12:30:24 PM
Barlow IS Cortana.
Title: Re: Leviathan
Post by: KampnKarl on March 14, 2012, 09:39:24 PM
Dr. Barlow isn't always there to give advice though, but the Loris is. So I would have to say Bovril is Cortana.

no.

if i die i want to be in a Leviathan world or mass effect...I love mass effect
Yeah being reincarnated in the Mass Effect universe would be pretty sweet, though I would prefer it to be after the Reaper invasion??????? Saying Shepard succeeds in ME3. (have you gotten to the ending yet? You'll want to play multiplayer a bunch to get the galactic readiness up pretty high, it helps a ton) Or also the Levi world, on some kind of Clanker/Darwinist airship *cough*Leviathan*cough*. As Deryn Sharp or someone similar to her, e.g. a girl working on an airship, as I'm in no hurry to switch genders.
