Since a certain manga is coming out next Tuesday, I thought it would be fun to do a monochrome version of FAF today, just to prove that you don’t need color to create a mood. There’s also a fanfic and a Scrabble board, because random is how the rolling of me occurs.
Let us begin with the fanfic, which is by Psocoptera. It’s called “Interesting Facts About the London Zoo,” and is obviously set after Goliath, in the hallowed halls of the London Zoological Society.
And now for the arts. First up is Christine K., with a drawing that asks the question, “What if Deryn Sharp was an admiral in the Royal Navy?”:
Also, check out the Napoleonic period image this was based on here.
From Deviant Art’s penut-butter-goddess, here’s a certain young prince making himself taller ny standing on a box:
MUCH taller, I’ll point out.
From Feitan, here’s a lovely charcoal-looking image of Mr. Sharp:
And from teaspoon00, a piece called “dress up,” which is possibly Bonus Chapter Canon, or maybe just something that happens post-trilogy.
And next from anderaminela, with this penciled coat of arms for the Bov-meister:
Everybody looks better with a Volger mustache, except possibly me. (I’ve tried. Believe me, I’ve tried.)
Speaking of Volger, here’s a pencil piece by Bryn showing him being ejected from the Leviathan by Deryn, who’s just had enough of his snide remarks.
I love how formally posed all of these are.
And from Aleta, this is Alek at the tailor’s in Japan. Note Deryn cleverly framed in the mirror.
I love that Bovril is also sticking its arms out. BECAUSE BOVRIL WOULD DO THAT.
And finally, from Mallory, an entire Scrabble game played with only Leviathan-related terms allowed:
Not strictly monochrome, but amusing none-the-less!
Okay, that’s it. I’ll be posting a reveal of the Smoke from Shay’s Story on Monday, and an official spoiler thread on Tuesday, when the manga comes out. Also, a real book trailer for Shay’s Story is in the works, and will be appearing soon!
Ciao for now.
