Deryn and Alek exchanging a glance. And a very confused newkirk.
“What she really wanted, Deryn realized, was for Alek to know that she’d lied for him, that she would go on lying for him.”
“Alek hesitated, thinking how strange it was to make an oath to lie. But the oath was to Deryn, and the lies would would be to…anyone else. ‘All right. I swear to lie for you, Deryn Sharp, whatever it takes to protect your secret.’”

Guys does this still apply or
AND IT’S ALL THANKS TO THE OTHER ALEK. (He referred to the Alek blog as dead. Heh.)
So yes, go question spam us! I’m thinking about doing a time skip and roleplaying post Goliath, but if we do, I want to give some time for people to get and finish the book.
So for now, I won’t be answering any spoilery questions. Feel free to send them anyways, though. I’ll just save them for later.
Also we would LOVE more roleplayers. Anyone we don’t have is cool. (Even if you want to be malone’s frog… GO AHEAD.)
TO ALL MY FOLLOWERS: GO ASK THEM RANDOM QUESTIONS!!!!!
But every time she tried, Deryn had imagined the look of horror on his face. Not that she was a girl in boy’s clothes, or that she’d lied to him for so long. All that yakkum Alek would get past, she knew. And then he would love her. She knew.
But that was the problem, because there was one thing that would never change… Deryn was a commoner. She was a thousand time more common that Alek’s mother, who’d been born a countess, or even Lilit, an anarchist who spoke six languages and always knew which fork to use. Deryn Sharp was as common as barking dirt, and the only reason that didn’t matter to His Serene Highness, Aleksander Of Hohenberg, was that was also, in his mind, a boy.
The moment she could be anything more than a friend, and she would be, then he’d have to run a mile.

I LOVE THIS ALSO, I WAS JUST ABOUT TO COMMENT ON IT WHEN I SAW YOU BEAT ME THERE. He loves her so much, she knows that, he friggin worships her, and if she were a girl, obviously he’d be all over that, he’s swooning all day err day as is! CALM DOWN ALEK, YOU’RE EMBARRASSING YOURSELF. Deryn’s just worried what his obvious irrepressible adoration would do for the state of the throne. He can’t know because there’s no way he’d be able to stop loving her!
Personally I love that she simply think he’s going to be annoyed for a bit and then INSTANTLY OKAY WITH IT. Like she can’t even comprehend that he might be mad at her for a while. Deryn you are so fifteen (AND SO DERYN)
EVERYONE LOVES THE SHARP
OF COURSE ALEK WON’T BE MAD AT ME I AM SWAGGERIFIC AND HE LOVES ME
