Wow Wow Wow, these are just characters people. Although I don't see the idiot side of Deryn, I've only read the first book so I don't know really.

I really like Alek better. He is way more reasonable, is precise (usually...;)) and just makes me feel good.

Yeah, I don't know what the comment was all about. She was probably just trying to explain her reasons for not liking Deryn as well but it came out kinda more rudely unintentionally.

Deryn needs to get her priorities straight. At the end of Behemoth, she convinces Alek to basically commit suicide when he comes back with her. If she really cared for him (even though being around him at all is kind of a stupid move) she would have sent him on his way, wiped the melodramatic tears that were undoubtedly falling in slow-motion out of her eyeballs, and gotten on with her life, but noooo, she couldn't be sensible for once, could she?

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

What do you mean? Alek had plenty of dangers and risks by staying. He risks death by returning to Austria-Hungary (although I do not think he is quite aware of how dangerous returning after the death of Franz Josef might be). I think that although it seems like a poor choice at the time, he will ultimately not regret going with Deryn.

And, also, as KDE said, it would be boring.  ;D

Boringness is quite.... undesireable.

I'm not partial to either character, personally. I like the story line the most.
