Actually, I was talking about Titanic the movie.
There are all the right conditons: One's an orphan, the other's supposed to be disgustingly wealthy and high class but isn't really, one of them is an artist, one of them has red hair and green eyes (i know Alek's hair is reddish brown), one has blonde hair and light green eyes (i know Deryn's eyes are blue, close enough), one of them has come close to dying and been saved by the other, they're completly forbidden to fall in love, and the guy gets arrested twice.
Oh yeah, and their personalities remind me of Alek and Deryn.
Jack's personality is like a more street-smart Alek, and Rose has Deryn's spunk and all that.

I always think of Titanic too. Only Deryn reminds me more of Jack because she seems a little more stree-wise, and then the drawing of course. And Alek more like Rose because they both have reddish hair and they are both rich, and sort of sheltered until they meet Deryn/Jack. And I can totally imagine Deryn teaching Alek how to spit.

Yes, I can imagine Deryn teaching Alek how to spit.
But I honestly think that Jack is shyer then Rose and a bit less spunky. I mean, Alek would NEVER pose naked for Deryn. (even if he knew she was a girl). And if Deryn did it to him, he would most certainly be blushing, like Jack was. Also Jack was the one who was trembling during the ...er...carriage scene.
I mean, it's not necesarily the situation but the personalities that remind me of them.

That makes sense. I love shy Alek.

So, the other day I picked up a book called Happenstance Found by P.W. Catanese, and by chapter four I was introduced to the leviathan barge.... Here's a pic of it:



Anyway, it was pretty much impossible for me to not compare it to the Leviathan. Now I can't help but think of Leviathan while reading this book. Though, Scott's Leviathan totally wins! :D

Right now, I can pretty much draw a connection to Leviathan from anything....xDD

But one thing is the band, FRANZ FERDINAND.
Heh heh.  ::) I listen to their songs and think of giant machines that can stand up and Tasmanian Tigers.


AND ALSO, the fact that on my history exam I was BEAST on anything that had to do with World War I. As long as I didn't accidentally mention hydrogen breathers or anything.

I saw a street sign that said Churchill. Now any normal person would see that and think of the British prime minister. But of course, being the crazy fangirl that I am, I immediately thought of the dude who ticked off Dr. Barlow.  :P

In history we were doing WW1 and my friend (who has read the book as well) and I kept thinking of leviathan and laughing. A lot of people looked at us weirdly including the teacher. We were doing a mind map and I knew a lot of things from lthe books and reading the history bit a the end of leviathan.
I know reading the history bit at the back kind of ruins the book but it was about the fifth time I had read both books and was waiting for goliath and desperately needed something else!

Omg, so at school last year, we were reading the annocements (spelling fail) and it said that some guy named "Alec Walker" had started a fencing club! I spazzed out in my chair cuz it's like alek, only spelled with a c, and walker like stormwalker (well no duh)... And we all know alek likes to fence.... Heh, the teacher gave me a funny look.
