A/N: Hey people. So, I thought that the development of Alek and Deryn's relationship in Istanbul was terribly covered- because he didn't even talk about the whole month that they spent together. Sure he dropped a few details about working on walkers, and the meaning of perspicacious, but come on! So while at me sister's 6th grade graduation, I heard 'Gone, Gone, Gone' by Phillip Phillips. It stuck. Took me awhile to realize it was the perfect song for Deryn and Alek. I mean, come on! It was made for them!

So while I was contemplating writing a movie script for Leviathan, I thought a montage during Behemoth most necessary. And all montages are in need of a song. I hope you enjoy what I've pieced together. I know I do, inside my head. *I sound crazy!*

BTW, to get the full experience, put on the song while you read. It also helps if you read it one time through, then listen to the song, and picture all the stuff happening. Yeah…

*DISCLAIMER! I DO NOT OWN Alek, Deryn, Bovril, and Lillit. ALL BELONGS TO Scott Westerfeld!*


Alek is walking by the Spider, when he spots Lilit staring intently at something. It takes a moment for him to follow her gaze to Deryn. He just smiles and shakes his head, walking off, leaving Deryn sweating as she hefts more boxes of paper.

When life leaves you high and dry, I'll be at your door tonight, if you need help, if you need help.

Alek is sitting with Deryn, on the top of the building, over the beautiful cityscape of Istanbul. Alek is motioning with his hand, speaking words, and Deryn is trying to repeat him. Bovril is on Alek's shoulder, laughing with each new word.

I'll shut down the city lights, I'll lie, cheat, I'll beg and bribe, to make you well, to make you well.

Deryn is glancing mischievously at the back of Alek's head, hefting a steel bar. He is crouched over a desk, with papers on it. She pokes his side, and the boy, without turning around, bats the metal away. Deryn, though, keeps at it, until finally Alek relents, turning around and cocking an eyebrow. She just tosses him a pole and strikes up the position that Volger had taught her.

Alek rolls his eyes before putting up his pole, and lunging.

When enemies are at your door, I'll carry you away from war, if you need help, if you need help.

Alek and Deryn walk out of a spice shop, Deryn carrying a sack of the hot spices they were sent to get, and in Alek's hand is his gold bar.

She almost misses it, but nearby, Ottoman soldiers were marching down the street. She pushes him from sight and into an alley, blocking the soldiers' views. She flashes a smile to Alek, who laughs nervously.

Your hope dangling by a string, I'll share in your suffering, to make you well, to make you well.

Alek and Deryn are walking through the busy bazaar, dodging children running away and laughing, and chatting lightly.

Give me reasons to believe, that you would do the same for me.

A metal bolt hits Alek in the back of his head as he is walking past a walker. He rubs the place where it hit, and bends down to pick up the small object. He glances up to see Deryn up on the walker, bent over a broken area on the machine, Bovril on her shoulder.

Alek smirks, and swings his arm, releasing the bolt. It hits Deryn dead on. She sits up, glancing around annoyed to see Alek loitering, whistling happily as he inspects boxes of parts. Bovril chuckles, before retreating to the bottom of the walker.

Deryn, grinning mischievously, pulls a nut from her supplies, and throws.

And I would do it for you, for you, baby, I'm not moving on, I love you long after you're gone.

Deryn shields her face as small, metallic objects flew through the air, before returning her fire. She laughs madly, and Alek just grins.

Lilit is watching from a walker nearby, giggling with a sling-shot in her hand.

For you, for you, you would never sleep alone.

The two teenagers are laying down atop the warehouse, opposite each other, with Deryn pointing out the different constellations, blonde and red hair mingling.

I love you long after you're gone, and long after you're gone, gone, gone.

Over and over, Alek manages to beat Deryn with his metal pole, much to her dismay.

When you fall like a statue, I'm gon' be there to catch you, put you on your feet, on your feet

Alek pulls Deryn into a store, out of the bustle of the bazaar, and presents a fancy Persian rug to her. Bovril is perched on her shoulder. Deryn cocks her head, before shaking it and pulling him by his sleeve off somewhere else.

And if your well is empty, not a thing will prevent me, tell me what you need, what you need.

Deryn brandishes a large, curved sword, and nods to Alek, smiling. Alek just shakes his head and laughs.

I surrender honestly, you've always done the same for me.

Deryn and Alek dart in between the different warehouse walkers, parrying with their metal poles, with Klopp, Bauer, and Zaven watching, amused.

So I would do it or you, for you, baby, I'm not moving on, I love you long after you're gone.

While Alek and Deryn are absorbed in their nut-and-bolt fight, Zaven stalks up, glaring at the two with dark eyes. They smile apologetically, and run off, leaving Bovril laughing manically.

For you, for you, you would never sleep alone, I love you long after you're gone, and long after you're gone, gone, gone.

Deryn and Alek are sitting at a table in a diner, Bovril squatting on Alek's shoulder, when the server comes up with two dishes. Deryn licks her lips and rubs her hands expectantly.

She picks up a fork and starts to chow down, but after three bites, her chewing slows. Her face practically turns red, and she spits out the mouthful onto her plate. She begins fanning her tongue.

Alek laughs with Bovril at her discomfort, before being splashed by some water. This makes Deryn laugh as she washes her mouth clean of the spice.

You're my backbone, you're my cornerstone.

Deryn is looking at Alek, studying his face, before sketching him onto a piece of paper, which is almost finished. Alek, wanting to see it, makes a grab for the piece of paper before Deryn pulls it from reach and sticking her tongue out at him.

You're my crutch when my legs stop moving.

Alek and Deryn are sitting back to back, lounging under some shade outside the warehouse. Bovril is curled up on Deryn's lap.

You're my head start, you're my rugged heart, you're the pulse that I've always needed.

While Alek and Deryn are helping to load spices, some Ottoman soldiers come over, curious. Alek pulls Deryn from view, and they hide behind the cart as they speak to their companions. They just grin at each other, before sneaking off.

Like a drum, baby, don't stop beating.

Metal poles clash as the two stare at each other with determination.

Like a drum, baby, don't stop beating.

Deryn is showing Alek how to spit correctly, but he fails.

Like a drum, baby, don't stop beating.

Deryn holds up a finger and spits, and prompts Alek to try again.

Like a drum, my heart never stops beating for you.

Alek nods, and spits again. But, his saliva lands on the shoe of a large man. He glares at the two. They smile back nervously.

For you, for, you.

The two are yelling as they burst from the warehouse, Alek clutching his fez, the large man chasing them, while Deryn laughs madly.

Baby, I'm not moving on, I'll love you long after you're gone.

Alek and Deryn are walking between some walkers, and Lilit takes Alek's fez from his head. When he tries to get it back, she tosses it to Deryn, who tosses it back, laughing.

For you, for you, you would never sleep alone, I love you long after you're gone.

Lilit is walking underneath a walker, and sees Deryn asleep on a hammock, drool slipping from her lips. She smiles, and pulls at the blanket to cover her, and strokes Bovril who is curled up on her left shoulder.

For you, for you, baby, I'm not moving on, I love you long after you're gone.

Lilit walks away from Deryn, and spots Alek asleep, seated on a stool, head on some blueprints for the walker they are under. She smirks, before walking past, and kicking the stool from underneath him. He falls flat, and struggles up to glare at the girl as she walks away.

For you, for you, you would never sleep alone, I love you long, long after you're gone.

Alek and Deryn continue to fight with their make-shift sabers, but Alek seems to be struggling against Deryn.

Like a drum, baby, don't stop beating.

Deryn is looking at a set of blueprints intently, and hands Alek a wrench when he sticks his hand up. Bovril is on her shoulder, following Deryn's finger as she runs it along the lines of the blueprint

Like a drum, baby, don't stop beating.

Deryn is sitting with Alek and Lilit when she lets out a burp. She instantly covers her mouth, looking apologetically at Alek.

Like a drum baby, don't stop beating.

Alek looks at Deryn with surprise before releasing his own belch, even louder. The two friends laugh.

Like a drum, my heart never stops beating for you.

Lilit lets out an even louder belch, and starts giggling. Deryn and Alek shrug to each other, and join in. Bovril chuckles, leaping from Deryn over to Alek.

And long after you're gone, gone, gone.

Deryn manages to twist her pole past Alek's defenses, and wins the duel. Alek stares, dumbfounded, while Deryn gloats.

I love you long after you're gone, gone, gone…

Deryn and Alek are sitting together, with Alek moving his hands, describing German words. Deryn is curled up, her knees brought to her chest, and Bovril is curled around the back of her neck.

Suddenly, she slumps against him, her head falling on his shoulder. He looks over, slightly miffed, as Deryn is asleep. For a second, he moves to remove her head from his shoulder, but stops, and smiles as he pulls out a book.

Lilit, watching from nearby, sneaks off, a thoughtful look on her face.
