2, 3, and 4, for Waking Dream? ^_^

2) What scene did you first put down?

Sienca.  I started right at the beginning to figure out HOW, and then let everything spiral from that point.  🙂

3)
What’s your favorite line of narration? 

uhmmmmhummm.  Not sure I have a favorite, but this one is nice:

Obi-Wan
trailed him all the way back to their quarters, and it had nothing to do with
the young man suddenly remembering proper protocol.  If it weren’t for Jedi training, Qui-Gon
suspected that Obi-Wan would have been gaping outright.  

Every time
Qui-Gon glanced back to check on his Padawan, the boy’s eyes were darting around,
taking in all aspects of Temple architecture and life.  Qui-Gon had the distinct impression that
Obi-Wan was trying valiantly not to stare at each passing member of the Order.

They
reached their quarters without incident, a fact that left Qui-Gon releasing a
quiet sigh of relief.  He wasn’t certain
that Obi-Wan would be able to handle curiosity from friends right now.  Hell, Qui-Gon didn’t think that he was up to
questions yet, either.

Once
inside, Obi-Wan stopped dead in his tracks.
Then, before Qui-Gon could say a word, he proceeded to touch everything.

Qui-Gon
watched, realizing he was witnessing an intense act of re-familiarization.  There was nothing in the common room that was
not investigated, by quick touch or by being picked up and explored with nimble
fingers.  

Those marvelous shields Obi-Wan now possessed let
nothing slip, but Qui-Gon could read body language when no other options
existed.  His Padawan was deeply upset, disturbed
by everything surrounding him, and shaken by his meeting with the Council.

4)  “Panic is for when the crisis has passed.”

Nice!  And that’s one of my favorite bits of narration, too, actually!  I usually end up re-reading that bit once or twice every time I get to it.  ^_^

I can get the image of Enjolras and Feuilly cuddling and Enjolras falling asleep with his face against Feuilly’s neck and Feuilly kind of having a mini-meltdown inside because oh my goood…

( @eirenical it’s your fault)

I AM VERY VERY HAPPY TO TAKE THE BLAME FOR THIS.  No qualms WHATSOEVER.  ^______________^  In fact, I will gladly take the blame for any and all instances of being unable to get images of Enjolras/Feuilly sleepy cuddles out of your head.  XD

Hey Les mis fandom, can we have a rarepair week?? This post gave me like 6 new ships I want to write for.

Yeah, those are fun!:D @eirenical, what’s a good open date on the calendar?

OH GOSH.  I’m sorry, for some reason the mention didn’t work and I missed this.  O_O  And oh man, I’m ALWAYS up for a rarepair week!

Anyway, as far as I know, everything is wide open.  The only thing going on is @lesmissummerhols gearing up and the @lesmis-bigbang winding down?  I haven’t heard anything else about anyone running a week any time in the near future.  So, whatever week you want, it’s yours @spearmintstardust!

But if you’d like to check out the calendar, here it is: Les Mis Fandom Calendar.

(…that reminds me, I need to get the LM Summer Holds dates on there.  Oops.  ^_^)

So, yeah.  Pick a week and it’s yours!  Just let me know which one you pick/the details of the week, so I can put it on the calendar.  ^_^

Yo I am READY for this.

Looking at the LMBB, Summer Hols and my schedule, I want to say the last week of June? June 26-July 2?

I’m going to make a side blog for this and try to figure out what ships won’t qualify. ♥

Done!  The week is yours.  ^_^  Just let me know when you decide what tag you want to use and make the side blog and everything and I’ll be happy to add those to the calendar page..

I can’t for the life of me figure out who the translator for this edition is.

If you ever can’t figure out who a translator in an English edition of LM is, go to @notquitelostnotquitefound’s  wonderful spreadsheet comparing the translations of 3.4.1, and check the chapter title. Seriously none of them are the same,  somehow, (how, I don’t know) so it’s a quick way to check!

FWIW, I have that translation and I’m pretty certain it’s a Hapgood.

Thanks for the help everyone! I think I’ve read Hapgood before, so that’s $8 saved (for now). 🙂

Any time!  ^_^

Oooo, thank you for the help! I really need to get/make me a book press. I don’t have one yet. I have been wondering how you decide on fabric for bookcloths.

(…ok, I will answer this before shutting down the computer.  ^_~)

My pleasure!  And YES, a book press makes life SO MUCH EASIER.  And if you have access to a drill, I would definitely make one instead of buying one.  You can make one for $30 or less, but buying them costs like… ridiculously a lot more.  😛  Here’s the video I used to make mine.  I found cutting boards that already had the bumpers on them, so I didn’t need to do that step.

As for how I decide on fabrics… I’m not sure?  I mainly use quilting cottons (100% cotton calico) and just… whatever fabric strikes my fancy?  I’ve always enjoyed playing with prints and seeing what fabrics go well together, and it’s not so different from picking fabrics for patchwork, which I’ve experimented with for years, so I just kind of play with that for the quarter cloth covers.  If you have a Joann’s near you, they organize all their fabrics by color, so fabrics that go together all live in the same general shelf area.  Also, most fabric stores sell little bundles of fabrics that kind of match like this and that can make it easier to find fabrics that go well together.  You can also combine fabric on the spine with fine paper on the cover.  The paper is a lot easier to work with than fabric, since you don’t need to make bookcloth out of it and it’s easier to handle, but that’s a personal preference thing.  ^_^

Does that help?

Ah, yes thank you! I took a look at the additional videos Crystal Shaulis has done, I really like how it’s done with the different spine color but I have a feeling I’m going to have to watch it several times to get it all figured out.

Went ahead and bought my cutting boards and bumpers to make my book press today. Luckily I already have access to a drill! I think mine is going to be a bit under $30 dollars as well. Just need carriage bolts, wing nuts, and washers. My boards are 12×15 though and I’m wondering if I can get away with just two carriage bolts or if I should go with with four. Eh, I figure it out I suppose.

You’re welcome!  ^_^  And oh GOSH, I love her videos.  I wish she had more about case binding, but I picked up so many good tricks from her.  As for the quarter cloth binding (different color on the spine), I practiced with a solid piece cover for a while before moving up to that, but I love the effect so much I never went back.  ^_^  And actually, on one of Crystal Shaulis’ videos, I left a comment asking for measuring advice, because that was something I was still struggling with, and she had some really good pointers.  So, that may help you, too.

As for the book press, if I were you, I’d do 4 carriage screws on that size board.  The boards I got were a little bigger than 9 x 12, too, and since the books I make are significantly smaller than that (and I only did two carriage screws; you live you learn, right? :P), I end up having to put another book in on the other side of my book press to help balance out the one I’m actually pressing when I’m putting the book in there to glue the spine.  It’s not THAT big a deal, but I think having four screws might have helped me there.  😛

But, yeah, it’s so much cheaper to make your own, it’s ridiculous.  They go for $150-$300+ on Amazon.  O_o;;;  Seriously.  Yikes.  -.-;;;  Anyway, good luck making yours!
