You know you're obsessed with Leviathan when...
« on: April 28, 2011, 09:56:07 AM »

This had to be done.

You know you're a Leviathaneer when...

1.) Your class studies Charles Darwin and you freak out.

2.) You see a lizard and you half expect it to speak to you.

(Keep it going!)

3) you hear someone mention a person named Alec and say, "I know a person named Alek" even though you really don't, cuz he's not real
4) you talk about it ALL the time
5) You obsessively write fic

(To modify #5: You obsessively theorize fanfic ideas, but never write them down, which keeps you up at night.
That one describes me  ;D)
6) You unintentionally use Deryn-isms.
7) You repeatedly read the two books in the series...

8) Your whole class knows the entire book… even though they have never read it
9) Your family is used to you screaming
10) You have nightmares including Deryn, Alek, superman and wrench wielding moms (those dreams are really freaky!!!)

13) you scream/squeal/have minor freakout when you see the picture
14) you become angry when it's not up yet

28) talk your 4th and 5th grade students into reading the book (some of them are really digging it by the way!)
29) Laugh every time they mention Daleks on Doctor Who
30) Put the audio books on itunes so you can listen to them whenever you feel like it

O tell the truth, I didn't really read the book the first time.  My family listenes to audiobooks on long drives, so I heard it there.  I have read the book, though.  I can't believe I missed out on the illustrations…

31) You openly admit and accept that you're obsessed with Leviathan
32) You bring a copy of Leviathan/Behemoth everywhere you go
33) You freak out anytime you hear a reference to 'Scotland' or 'Austria'
34) You talk to your Leviathan buddies openly in front of people who haven't read the book, and they look at you funny
35) Have random fangirl spasms during the day
