Title: You know you're a Leviathan fan when... (new one!)
Post by: Bovril18 on April 13, 2012, 11:07:13 AM
Ok, so since the old thread for this kinda went off on a bunch of tangents, I decided to start a new one! 

1. You insist that all of your friends read the books, and if they don't you get it for them as birthday presents
2. You start talking to your science teacher about Fabricated Beasties and he asks you what the heck you're talking about
3. You drop everything you're doing to re-read the books (for the 5th time)
4. Barking Spiders, Bumrag, Dummkopf, and other Daryn-isms become part of your regular vocabulary
5. You make random references that most people don't get unless they've read the book
6. You start cracking up in class when your teacher makes a reference that they don't realize they've made

That's all I've got for now, Keep it going!

heres what i posted on the last one:


You pay people to read Leviathan
You get your math teachers daughter to read Leviathan
When you hear that said daughter has just read chapter 12 of Goliath you fall to your knees screaming
You accidentaly call your freind whos name starts with a "D" deryn
You accidentally call your cousin named Melissa Deryn (IDK how that even works...)
Your solution for everyones drama problems is to read Leviathan
You spend hours thinking about a single line of Goliath
You have conversations with your friends containing nothing but refrences
Your sister takes your copy of Goliath away so you buy a new one

Here are some of mine:
Whenever you see a mildly aviator looking hat you rush in yelling "MR. SHARP HAT!!!!!!!!!!!!"

You and your boyfriend call each other "beastie" (he calls me mr. Sharp sometimes too. our friends are a little lost about that:)

You draw the characters in your math book so often that your teachers ask you who Alek is.

You talk about the books do much that even though most of your friends haven't read them they know the plot already.

You dream in flying whales

When you come downstairs with blue hair and your mother says "barking spiders"

When you use Derynisms so much that your friends think that pear shaped is a normal thing to say.

I have more!!!!!!!!

too true my friend, too true.

but don't worry bramblepool.  we all have our hatreds of different characters.  For me it's Zane.  I've never liked him.  (Also, it's awesome and hillarious that we're having this conversation, I can never do this with my friends at school, because they're lame and haven't read the book.)

You purchase the whole series in Harcover from Amazon. Take note I live in Asia... And i NEVER buy hardcovers when there's a softcover alternative. The only other hardcover book i own is Transformers:Exodus. Can't wait for my order to get here.  ;D

Hahaha! :D That was PERFECT. Yes. :3
OK, guilty for MOST OF THESE OMFG.

*When you go into temporary brain-dead-simulating shock and stare at your gym!classmate (admittedly rather attractive, but ->)/friend's boyfriend with a huge insane grin on your face when he out-of-the-blue asks you if that's the library's copy of Behemoth you're holding (yes, in the middle of gym class. :3 I can just sit and read in the fitness room, which is really damn wonderful) because he wants it. And you chase him at the end of class and practically force him to agree to borrow your copy of Behemoth, and then Goliath. And you're happier than you've ever been because HOLY SWEET MOTHER OF GOD ALMIGHTY THERE'S A LEVIATHANEER THAT YOU DIDN'T INTRODUCE TO THE BOOKS. AND YOU EVEN ALREADY KNOW HIM!! :D

And yeah, I'm way more attracted to Alek than literally any male I've ever seen/heard/known/been friends with/etc. IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. And this is from someone who's never really given a fuck about romance!!
Ok, that was a lie. I have been. But not now. Not for a couple years. Not a twinge. Nothing.

Well it's first person POV, it's about a kid whoes 16ish and loves to fly(him and Deryn are very similar!) and how he meets this girl named Kate De Vrise(an a=hareess) but, it's not a romance novel or anything!

AS previously stated, Bram and CPG had to force me to read LEvi. (CPG actually paid me)

Da, did I ever actually pay you? I don't remember.

and Da has gotten me way more into slash than I would like. She even somehow got me to write a fic about me and bram-chan's OCs as a slash couple. It's so fun.

I'm not sure...Wait, didn't you get me that Alice cup in Philly?

...but then I bought you one...so idk if that counts.

Hehe. Slash is epic. I did not get you to write that, you wrote it by your own free will!   ;)  ;D

I can just read it on my iphone, that was how it felt.  ;D I went on amazon and ordered the thing through express shipping halfway through behemoth, got here in 3 days. Soo.... I would have to spend about another $65SDG to relive that experience XD

But I read ALOT of reviews before reading it, I was kinda expecting alot to begin with, and it did not disappoint.

The same place in my head that spawned Anyanka Bloom, who's pretty much what you described? Seriously, I had a plan for a blond "White Russian" girl of royal decent (related to Princess Anastasia and her poor murdered family) that First Squad would rescue from St. Petersburg following the Bolshivik Revolution.
Blond: Check
Russinan: Check
Lesbian: Was thinking she'd be bi, but lesbian works better. Check.
There you go.
