Starting out on a Journey by Freed-Alice Starting out on a Journey by Freed-Alice
CLICKIE: [link]

My usual love life among the books:

1) Read the book = Falling in love

2) Read the ending = Breaking up

3) Start moving on another book = Moving on

:iconfacepalmplz:

Anyway, I've been in love with Alek and Deryn for the longest time, and I think...I think I can move on to another book without thinking about them in every page turn. Thus, a finale in our trilogy:

SONG: "At the Beginning" from the movie Anastasia.

"[Deryn]
We were strangers, starting out on a journey
Never dreaming what we'd have to go through
Now here we are and I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

[Alek]
No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected, what you did to my heart

[Both]
When I lost hope, you were there to remind me
This is the start

And life is a road and I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road, now and forever
Wonderful journey
I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

[Deryn]
We were strangers on a crazy adventure
[Alek]
Never dreaming how our dreams would come true
[Both]
Now here we stand, unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

[Repeat Chorus]

I knew there was somebody, somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothing's gonna tear us apart

[Repeat Chorus]

[Alek]
Yeah...

[Both]
Life is a road and I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep going on

[Deryn]
Starting out on a journey

[Both]
Life is a road that I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep on flowing
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning...
With you
"


I named the parts where I thought it would be their lines, and I thought: THIS IS SO, SO FOR ALEK AND DERYN. ♥

Does this mean I'll never draw them anymore? Oh heck no, just that I'll be focusing on something else > u<

I knowwww, that's why I hated it when Westerfeld limited such a great story to a trilogy...!
Yet their legacy lives on...!!! T uT

The song is amazingly fitting, I agree.
Though I'm not so sure Deryn would be cool with using a hot air balloon, considering how her dad got fried...

Freed-Alice Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah yes, I've thought about it too, but when I was thinking of what to draw that was in my capabilities, I couldn't draw anything harder OTL
Maybe we can think of it as symbolical? Deryn is able to get through her nightmares with Alek? <3

Those both work. I mean, it is just her and him...in a balloon...several hundred feet over the Earth. I could see how he'd make her forget what happened.
