Austrian Princes Turning Gay by IsabelStar Austrian Princes Turning Gay by IsabelStar
Ooh, Mr. Sharp, ohhh.

It is perfectly natural to look at your best friend like that. Unnecessary physical contact is also wholly unremarkable. (Just kiss already, you guys).

Deryn Sharp, who cross-dresses as a boy to join the Air Service, and her friend Aleksandar Ferdinand, the fictional son of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, from Scott Westerfeld's delightful WWI AU series, Leviathan. You should totally read it, and this is why.

With thanks to Kate Beaton and apologies to everybody else. More serious titles were not forthcoming. The character designs, etc, heavily inspired by Keith Thompson's illustrations.

Read the "this is why" with my friend... (Hello there! I'm the friend. HIJACKING YOUR FRIEND'S ACCOUNT FTW!!)

WE CHOKED ON OUR OWN TEARS OR JOY AND LAUGHTER. THANKS A LOT.

We especially loved the Leviathan in Four Acts part. That was...SO EPICALLY ACCURATE THAT IT MADE US DIE. OF THE ACCURATENESS.

And the picture. Is. Epic. (the hijacking friend does agree on this point. More than the one with a deviantART, actually.)

Awwww, thanks! Hahaha, unfortunately there is no such thing as stealing talent, it just takes some practice.
