So I'm uploading this without edits because GIMP is being a butt and it looks really grainy and stuff in there...
How I feel their relationship should go: Alek finds that he's falling for "Dylan" and completely panicked about it because THAT'S JUST NOT RIGHT. (To him, anyway). Awkward? Yes. Hilarious? Definitely. Poor Alek, thinking that he's falling in love with another boy when it's really a girl in disguise. Deryn would, of course, joke him for it once she finds out. c:
Yes, Deryn is playing with a fabricated bee.
And those words by Alek? His thoughts.
Oh, and Alek is TOTALLY a creeper.
Verdammt = "Damn" in German.
Alek and Deryn/"Dylan" < Leviathan < Westerfeld
