I was reminded of Deryn when I was looking up Irene Castle, the trendsetter of the bobbed hair of the 1920s. She was a famous ballroom dancer and bobbed her hair in 1914. Anyway, apparently she first bobbed her hair as a girl so that she could cut classes at boarding school and go swimming. XD Sounds very Deryn-like.

Why do people like drawing Deryn with long hair when she's an adult??  ???

I picture Deryn with long hair as an adult because a bob is actually really impractical for flying. I had chin-length hair for a while, and it was ALWAYS getting in my way. If you look down, it gets in your face, if there's a wind it gets in your face. And the only way to stop that would be to use a bunch of hairpins or barrettes to get it out of the way. Long hair can be pulled back into a ponytail in 2 seconds flat, and it's out of your way. I imagine that so long as adult Deryn is still flying, she'd get annoyed with a bob pretty quick and would either grow it out or cut it boy-short again.

That's true! haha I've never thought of the practicality of long hair like that.  My hair is short, and it doesn't all fit into a ponytail at once so it's constantly in the way -.-

The band The Freelance Whales reminds me of Leviathan. Just cause of the name.  ;D
