if deryn hadn't gone up in the beastie baloon IMPORTANT
« on: July 19, 2012, 12:00:25 PM »

That one move could've changed everything,  Deryn wouldn't have joined the Leviathan, if Deryn didn't join the leviathan she wouldn't have met Alek.  If Alek didn't meet deryn he wouldn't join  the Leviathan then the revolution would've been lost and also Tesla's machine wouldn't have been proven fake.  what would have happened then?

It's really wierd to think about that. For example...
Deryn: If her da hadn't died, she wouldn't have signed up for the Air Service. If she hadn't signed up, she wouldn't have gone up in the Huxley and (insert everything you said.)
Alek: If his parents hadn't died, he wouldn't have had to flee, and never would have saved Deryn from "frostbitten bum," which could have led to the officers discovering her secret. Then the eggs might not have survived. (or turned out as well.) They might never have found out the purpose of Tesla's device. Then again, Alek wouldn't have been there to build it and Tesla would probably still be in Siberia.

Wow. Thanks for making this topic, because I had never really thought about how much could have gone wrong if one thing had been the tiniest bit different...

Not neccicarilly. I would think that the attack on Goliath would have gone much worse, and as such American would have been galvonized into fighting. And after Goliath turned out to be a dud they'd make it better, and then you'd be cackling like a madman as you fried Berlin...

Gah! My mind=

It wouldn't be Leviathan anymore! The plot would be entirely reconfigured and WW1 wouldn't even happen!

Well, shit would find its way to happen, but chances are, the tension in the war would escalate without Goliath ending it, and Alex and his men would be camping in the alps, waiting for Halo 4 . And Deryn would probably just be an ordinary pilot who would get killed since the war escalated.   ;D

There would be fabricated humans. And trenches. And everything that I was hoping for in Leviathan.

Newkirk would be dead.
Why would Newkirk die?

Also, if Alek had never saved the Leviathan, then Dr Barlow, Deryn, Newkirk, Bovril, and everyone else would've died!

You just said why newkirk would die.  The leviathan would have died and so would he.
