One of them didn't make it.

(Quote by Plato)

"M'am, if it's any consolation... your husband died a hero."

"Of course. The fool wouldn't have had it any other way."


I was actually planning on having something lighthearted showing how there wouldn't really be a WWII, as the events in the Leviathan series sort of nullified the reason it would have started in the first place. Instead, I got this.

Go see the other awesome people here: :iconalek-and-deryn:

I know I'm REALLY late to this, but I just have to say-wow. This is incredibly, depressingly powerful

I just died a little. I'm going to have to....recover for a moment. I need Goliath....
Very simple, yet extremely moving and emotional. It speaks volumes about those left behind when a loved one is killed in battle and just about war in general. Beautiful.

Goliath....

Thank you. I'm glad I didn't try inundating it with details, or it probably wouldn't have had the same effect.

That is sad. Poor Deryn. But it's powerful. The whole picture with its simplicity and faded out tone, it's like a metaphor for what Deryn's life is now like without him. Well done!

Thanks! I felt sorry for Deryn while I was drawing this... but she's tough. Tough enough, probably, to deal with the damage of losing someone so close.

She is. Alek would fall apart but Deryn would endure.

I you are the first to depict the after math of WWII with one of them dead, so good job. This is really great, I love the sepia tone, the simplicity of it, the quote- and even the dialogue in the description. "Of course. The fool wouldn't have had it any other way." A perfect way to describe Alek.

I have a sudden temptation to shout out "FIRST!"

...But that would be childish.

It's good to hear that the elements worked together well. I chose what I thought felt right at the time, and I think I'm as pleased with the result as anyone else.

You know, you're the third person to use cryforeverplz... I think I should hand out cookies and tissues or something equally comforting.

Oh dear... Have a tissue.

I didn't really picture Alek's death, but... well. We can only imagine what he would have done.

Yes because he would be selfless at the worst (or best?) of times and save tons of people like he did in Goliath.
