Levia One - Neo-Atlantean Grand Prix Checkpoint

"Sons of Leviathan must be saved. The only way to save them is... have them race for eternity. Hope you'll enjoy this one, Steve."

Hello! Welcome to another project contest entry of mine! I shall be entering the Undersea Project Contest, in which I needed to poke out of the water for the ships, buildings and dragons. This project is a special one, for it combines all the three styles of minecraft building - architecture, terraforming and organics, and is all done solo for the whole four weeks. I am really exhausted, phew, but I will be putting up more pictures and storylines afterwards. Enjoy the entry! 

Basic idea is that Leviathans are used in a world grand prix that carry armed battleships as their chariots. The battleships must battle each other while their construction crew must repair any damages simultaneously. They will reach checkpoints like this one where hotel and pitstop services are available. Dragons and swordfish will protect the Leviathans from any natural or manmade interferences.There are three participating factions in this map: Hexagonal Lotus, Pentagonal Zeginata and Triangular Aeres, all attached to their Leviathans.
EDIT: Posted more pictures unedited, hopefully I'm a valid entry now D:

FUN FACT: A Formula One grand prix track requires a nearby hotel that should accommodate more than 5000 people at a time. This hotel's rooms are nowhere close to that one...

Background Story
Journal Entry of Matre Iseous Xavier

0 Leviathan Era (L.E.). (In human timeline: ????)

I left her to her duties, and I departed into other worlds once more. Constantly, I've felt the unease of drifting into the vortex of space-time travel, partially able to control when I land but not where. Each entry in this journal is always made approximately an hour after I exited the travel to survey my surroundings and after every new event on that world. Each and every world is different, yet breathable and equally amazing. It was almost like arriving back on Earth at different eras.

This new world I've landed on seemed to have overflowed with chaos. On a small island, the only observations I could make so far were air-grinding hurricanes and the confusing tides everywhere, including near the shores. I imagined this island like the summit of a very high mountain - the pressure and humidity of the skies were lighter than ever on the surface. Beach crabs and turtles (I shuddered at the sight) strolled on one side of the island finding a refuge in the storms while I searched around for more stranded survivors.

There were few humans like me who panicked fresh as if they had just crashed. They walked to and fro briskly, heads bowed as if silently praying in anxiety. Upon sight of me, they shouted in fear. Where had I come from? Was I with them the entire time? Before they could interrogate me, a large groan came from the tidal shores. Immediately, the stranded crew fled inland in much more terror. Anxiously I looked about the chaos. People, manhandling me screamed, 'Infected with sin! Throw him to the beast! They shall spare us!'

Rising above the water was another island, which seemed to have two glowing eyes. The men who haggled me immediately threw me forward and retreated back in fear. I was at the mercy of a Leviathan whose fiery eyes gazed at mine. Whatever sin these madmen thought I've committed may have some effect on it. The eyes suddenly began deteriorating slowly in light as it laid idle.

Slowly I reached down for a beach crab that attempted to scuttle away, being watched closely and carefully by both parties. I threw the crab at it. At once, the mountain of a head rose up high to open its murky, toothless mouth to catch its morsel, creating mini-tsunamis all the while. As the head lowered back, the eyes glowed bright once more, and directed its head to turn to its side. I confided to the crew that they build a sturdy raft from the wreckage they could salvage. They obeyed willingly after seeing the miracle, and finished as soon as one hour.

Commanding one or two of the men to tie the raft to one of its scales, I pushed the raft onto the wavy shores. Terrified, the crew reluctantly climbed on. The captain confided to me that their kind had believed the sea to be full of chaos and ghastly monsters. Leviathans like this one had always obliterated trade routes and passenger ships due to the sin of the people above water. I, however, believed this was an opportunity for them to change their view of sins. Away from the safety of a miniscule raft, I climbed aboard the head of the Leviathan, hearing screams of despair from those below. I waved back at them reassuringly and blindly gave a small kick to its tough, scaly skin.

In reply, the Leviathan slowly descended away from the shores into the hurricane waters. The skin resonated a warm feeling, and began boiling the waters nearby. The head suddenly dove into water as well, so I quickly climbed onto the rope to the raft. They greeted me again, hugging together tight like children in the closet of a burning mansion.

The period of time while travelling across the sea was painstakingly long that I lost count when we were struck by each tidal wave. We lost a few crew members to the vast waters, and our only hope was to pray our Leviathan knew where to take us. I would've travelled out immediately but in the presence of my crew, they would go more mad. Only when I hit the water or away from their sight will I do so, which became more tempting to commit. The hours of the maelstrom were indescribable because each was both the same and different to another, in cases that made us restless and helpless. The chaos was overwhelming, trying to consume us everywhere, but our bullet Leviathan simply transcended through.

It wasn't long before we reached sweet, tasty sand of a continental coast. The rain subsided, and I could see ahead the edge of the storm. The crew kneeled down, kissed my feet and thanked me greatly for their return. They all promised to do me one favour before I depart faithfully.

I looked back at the idle leviathan whose head was poking out and whose eyes began fading cold again. I understood how Leviathans lived and died. I requested the crew to attach each and every boat to Leviathans and train them to reach their designated location. Shocked and taken aback, the crew hesitated until they came to a firm agreement. I thought out loud about a joke that a grand prix of racing Leviathans should be held...

...And these people took it very seriously.
