Oh, also, why do none of your book pairings say 'i love you' to each other? (off the top of my head, at least, I can't remember any mutual exchange of the words.)

Do you have an easier time coming up with main or side characters?

And thank you for doing this meet-up, you're making a horrible day bearable.

My eyes are burning uhh it's almost 3AM in Turkey/Turkiye... Just want some reply to my project :D
 If you could live in any of the universes you created, which one and why?
How do you feel about being in the "Steampunk genre"? Are you into the steampunk subculture? If so, what do you like about it?
And a cliché question: What inspires you? :)

Thanks  :)

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

Pretty much. Robin Wasserman's essay in Mind-Rain is pretty good on this theory.

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

I did a few years ago. Sorry I've only gone to Vancouver lately.

You live near Ohio/Michigan Luna? I didn't know.

I live in NYC and Sydney.

Do you like haunted houses?

Never been in one.

Does Dr. Cable have black hair or really dark brown hair? Or is she blonde?

I THINK IT IS DARK.

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

It's also used in Armenian communities in Turkey.

- 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?

There's probably a loose correlation, yeah. But not a rule. (I mean, the Russians are more Catholic than not, and they're Darwinists.)

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

Hmm. I'd have to think about that.

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

It does not! But hopefully they became a nive democracy at some point.

- 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?

No plans. (The answer to all tour questions from now on is "I don't know and no tours are planned.")

Any suggestion on how to get a YA book published?

Write a really good story! And take all the advice on my writing advice category:

http://scottwesterfeld.com/blog/category/writing-advice/

1. why did you come up with a romance with zane in pretties?

That was an accident. I just had him as kind of an interesting character, and then sparks flew between them.

3. is there going to be an uglies movie?

MAYBE.

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

Hmm. THIS IS A GREAT QUESTION AND I DON'T KNOW.

Heading down to New Zealand any time soon?

Argh no more tour quessies answered, but Justine and I MIGHT go to that Aukland festival in the next two years.

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

Eventually.

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

It is my thing!

Scott-la, have you seen the show Revolution? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

I haven't watched it yet. TV shows in post-breakdown worlds always seem cheesy to me, and I am afraid it will suck.

OUt of all the places that you've visited on tours.....which has been your favourite?

Bologna, Italy, BECAUSE OF THE TRUFFLES.

What do you think about Slender Man?

WHAT IS THIS???

Scott-la, are you a nerdfighter?

John and Hank are pals, but I don't watch their videos. So I guess not.

Also, do you ship Borra or Makorra?

Strangely, I have no opinion on this. I just want to be Korra's best friend for ever and ever.

Leviathan: The Movie......could it ever be a possibility?

A certain big movie star wants to make it but we can never guess the future.


Is Volger and his mustache behind the "I <3 Mustache" movement?

He planted the seeds long ago.

Do you follow any sports? If so, what sports.

Basketball and cricket. GO FEVER.

Scott: I named my puppy (Zane) after your book character (and a friend we know..) anywho... He turned out to be quite the handful. In case you were wondering, Australian Shepherd are a lot of work

All pets are work, because all relationships are work! This is the truth that they teach us.

How did you come up with the Wa and La thing anyway?

Based it on Japanese name suffixes. There's a post on my blog about it somewhere. (Search on "suffix".)

So what did Lilit do after Goliath? (Meet Adela and fall in love is my best guess.)

Prayer circle that this is a thing.

How did you come up with all the characters in Leviathan? Are some of them based on real people?
