Hey, new here.

Scott, I always felt that Shay was maybe a little bit in love with Tally. Do you think that's true?

1) Do you remember me/recognize my name? We've made contact a couple of times before...If you say yes I'll die, if no, I understand  

I remember you all! (Well, more than you'd think.)

2) Although I know that some authors hate fanfic, you obviously don't so will you read mine if I send it to you when I'm done?  PLEASE IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN MOST AND IS LIKE NOTHING YOU'VE EVER READ!!!!! (Although it's not slash, your favorite apparently.  Sorry...)

Who said slash was my favorite?? (It's always interesting, though.) But sorry I hardy have time to read the books I'm supposed to blurb.

3) Did you know that you contradict you own rule regrading wa and la?  Shay says "Hey Skinny-wa" to Tally during the ice rink scene in Pretties.  I can't find the page number because I don't have Pretties now, but I swear it's true.

Whenever stuff like that happens, the answer is: BRAIN LESIONS.

Do you have any theories as to why it seems that most YA authors lean more towards the left, politically speaking? (for instance, you, john green, cassandra clare...)

I think artists in general lean toward the left. thanks to a tendency to see the world from many points of view, rather than the U-S-A, U-S-A point of view. (A cartoonish way to say it, but I'm in a hurry here.)

Here's a question.. How did you get the “different verison” of the WW1 idea?
 
Wha?

Do you like Doctor Who?

It's not really a thing for me. I've only watched one or two eps in my whole life. (One really old, one new.)

Im trying to write a steampunk comic book, and so do you have any tips for writing an awesome steampunk story?

Steampunk thrives on lots of research. Learn about Victorian era science!

Bluebells and Roses my favorite bunny-loving member wanted me to ask you what your favorite kind of bagel is?

EVERYTHING. (Or garlic.)

hat is Hoffman's first name? He is awesome, but I don't know what his name is!

Um, that's in the book, right? (I never know this stuff.)

Also, do you like Legend of Korra?

IT IS THE BEST.

SCOTT-LA DUDE BRO GUY. BOXERS OR BRIEFS?

Recently changed to briefs.

Also, me and my boyfriend are planning on getting married in Germany (where he‘s from). Would you like to attend our wedding?

THAT MIGHT BE WEIRD.

What's fitzroys first name? And if you hadn't decided, can it be Harold?

It's Robert, because he's named after the captain of the Beagle, the ship Charles Darwin traveled on.

Actually, question.
Will you ever come to Canada? Like, Ottawa or Toronto?

OKAY. QUESTIONS. I haven't been able to come to the last few meetups because of timezone reasons but it's midnight over here and I am armed with caffeine. Caffeine and nerves of steel. Or something.

- Why does Lilit call Nene the Turkish word for “grandmother” if their family are Armenians?

- How important is religion in the Leviathan universe with regard to the Clanker/Darwinist thing? Is it a general rule of thumb that Clankers = Catholics & Muslims and Darwinists = Protestants?

- Do you know if the Netherlands is Clanker or Darwinist?

- And finally, do you know if the Russian Revolution happens in the Leviathan universe?

- Oh, and properly finally, is there a chance you might be doing some kind of UK/European tour at some point in the future ever?

Where did you get the "different version" of the WW1 idea?
Why did you choose Clankers and Darwinists; why not another thing?
Or where did you get the Darwinsts and Clankers idea?
Leivathan is quite different than Uglies series,why did you prefer that subject?

Please reply me

How did you first get the idea for Leviathan?

And...Hoffman's first name...?

WELL I‘LL PUT YOU ON THE GUEST LIST JUST IN CASE.

Also, if the Midnighter‘s TV show does become a reality, what song(s) would you like to play during the opening/ closing credits?

I know this question might be a little annoying, but do Alek and Deryn get married after the series ends?

Another question! When did the Clanker vs. Darwinist thing first emerge in the Leviathan universe? Does it go way back, or is pretty new?
