Uh forgive me but i thought it was just that Lilit didn't realise Deryn was a girl. So it wouldn't matter?
"I think you're the most brilliant boy I've ever met."
"I know you better than you think, Mr. Sharp."
"You don't know what a friend you have in Dylan."

LILIT WAS KINDA DROPPING HINTS LEFT AND RIGHT IN HER LAST SCENE.
Scott-La's confirmed both Lilit's Not-Being-Straight-ness and her knowing Damn Well that Deryn's a chick, so.

One by one, they ran away.  With their made up minds to leave it all behind, as the light began to fade from the city on the hill.

Trample the weak, hurtle the dead.

Mmmmmm Norwegian deer liver.

Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

I wouldn't push people I DONT like down a hill.

This isn't meant to pick a fight. But now that Scott has chucked Lilit out of the closet, I was wondering what kind of situation she'd be in. Alas, Google has failed me. Does anyone know how the Ottoman Empire treated gays/lesbians in 1914? (I feel a fanfic brewing.  ;) )
I just say this in the "who's online" thing and thought to input.

While I don't know the specifics of the Ottoman outlook on homosexuality, I do know that the Ottomans were an Islamic government and state, and when you put that together, it is more likely that it wasn't... encouraged...

And also, I need to point out that Lilit would have been executed if the Muslims found out that she came out of the closet. It's Islam, for Pete's sake. Even Christians have done that long time ago, until some of them got their eyes open and started growing up.
