If you’ve still not recovered from “The Giver”-like/WTF ending to Lauren Oliver’s “Requiem”, now’s your chance to soothe your feels and submit your original endings to the “Delirium” series.
Introducing Requiem Endings!
We all love the Delirium trilogy so much that when Requiem ended, we wanted MORE! Lauren Oliver got her start in writing with fan fiction “sequels” to her favorite books, so she very purposefully left the story open-ended so fans could interpret the end on our own. Some of us have found that easy to do, others not so much!
There’s a lot of questions:
What happened to our favorite Delirium characters?
Where do their loyalties lie?
What happened to Portland?
Will love ultimately save the day and the save the country?
YOU TELL US!
In conjunction with Lauren Oliver and her team, Delirium Fandom created REQUIEM ENDINGS, where fans can submit their original continuations to the Delirium trilogy! Send us your fan fiction, graphics, photos, or videos depicting what YOU think happened in the world of Delirium after Requiem’s final page! All theories and plot lines are welcome.

Since Fox has rejected the ‘Delirium’ pilot for its fall broadcast schedule, fans of the series have launched the official petition, “Don’t Stop the Deliria”.
The aim of the petition is to convince executives at Fox to either reconsider the ‘Delirium’ pilot or release its rights so that other networks may go forward with the show.
The petition reads:
We, the undersigned, are disappointed by FOX Television’s decision not to order the Delirium series, based on Lauren Oliver’s brilliant trilogy, and ask that the network not allow its outstanding potential to go to waste.
The Delirium novel was a New York Times Bestseller that also reached #4 on the NYT Series List following the release of the final book of the trilogy, Requiem. It was named Best Teen Book and Best YA Novel of 2011 (So Far) by Amazon, on top of Best Fiction nominations from The American Library Association and The Young Adult Library Services Association. The books have also found international acclaim, winning the prestigious Le Grand Prix de L’Imaginaire in France and the Buxtehude Bull in Germany, both in 2012.
More than that, the Delirium trilogy is a beautiful story of love, youth, and the human condition that seamlessly infuses action and politics to create an astonishingly original world. It has a devoted fanbase across the social networks, many of whom have organized or taken part in campaigns to “Spread the Deliria”. We did so because we were profoundly touched by the books and thrilled at the prospect of a film or television adaptation.
We respectfully disagree with the decision not to further adapt the series at this time and ask that FOX consider an alternative means of adapting the series or sell the rights to someone who would be willing to give the story another shot, rather than allowing this profound tale to sit idle on the shelves indefinitely. Delirium and its fandom deserve a worthy adaptation.
The petition currently has over 1,000 signatures!

DON’T STOP THE DELIRIA
Well it’s official. DELIRIUM did not get picked up by FOX. This makes me sad.
Actor Gregg Sulkin broke the news to the fans on Twitter...
Unfortunately, it’s officlal that Delirium did NOT get picked up by FOX.
Firstly, and I am sure I speak on behalf of all the cast, I would like to thank everyone for their support over the past few weeks. Never have I experienced, or seen anything like that in my life. Your support for the show has simply been sensational. I am very humbled and grateful.
The cast, producers, crew are as devastated as you are. We were all extremely passionate about this project, and was looking forward to working with each other on a regular basis. It wasn’t meant to be.
However, as they say, as one door closes, another opens, and I hope you guys continue to stay on this journey with me.
Of course, I would have loved the show to get on the air, but lets continue now to kick on, as a team, and I hope I can continue to make you guys proud in the future.
All the best,
