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 just finished reading Re-Entry and honestly it’s amazing. It’s probably the best Star Wars story I’ve read and you’re an amazing writer. Do you have any idea when then next part will be up?

No idea yet–April has been a weird fuckin’ month guys–but I thought I’d toss up a snippet to prove that yes, there IS a next RE chapter coming down the pile:

Keep reading

These tags, tho.  😀

😀  I’m glad they made you happy!  Because your writing makes ME happy.  *_*  In all seriousness, I think I don’t gush at you nearly as often as I should for how much I love this fic.  At the risk of TMI, I actually have a story to tell about how much I love this fic and how much I appreciate you for writing it…  and since I think you’ll appreciate it, I’ll tell it anyway.  ^_^

This winter I went through one of the worst bouts of extended anxiety I’ve ever experienced.  It was so bad that most days it was all I could do to get from my bed to my recliner and stare at tumblr for the day.  My brain had just kind of shut down on me.  And into the middle of this awful bout of anxiety, my friend @dreamer-wisher-liar came squealing into my inbox about THIS AMAZING STAR WARS FIC THAT I ABSOLUTELY HAD TO READ.  And you have to understand–I was so far gone in that moment that I just kind of went, “…meh.”  I wasn’t interested in reading anything.  But she was so excited and so enthusiastic that I figured… ok, I’d give it a try.

So, I started reading anyway.

8 hours later when my body was screaming at me to go to bed and my brain was screaming at me to read “JUST ONE MORE CHAPTER” and my brain WON… I knew I was hooked.  ;D

I spent basically the next week plowing my way through Re-Entry and Re-Entry: JotW and it was the first time I’d been able to even focus on anything in WEEKS and it felt so good to just unabashedly and unashamedly enjoy something and I couldn’t slow down reading enough to try to muster the mental energy to leave comments (which I felt awful about -.-;;;).  And when I reached the end of the fic, I was just kind of sitting there like… “But… what do I do NOW??”  And the answer was very clearly “Go back to the beginning and start reading again.”  *sheepish grin*

And this is how I’ve ended up rereading Re-Entry three times since January.

My head is in a much better place now, and Re-Entry has become this lovely little mental security blanket that I can wrap around me and disappear into when things get bad and I really ABSOLUTELY CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR WRITING IT. 

So.  ^_^  There we go.  Slightly TMI story.  (And hopefully this gushing makes up in part for my lack of commenting up until now and I’ll try to do better about that in the future.  ^_^)

(Side note: I got so attached to Re-entry that I ended up even more tea-addicted than I already was, and ended up making Adagio blends for several Star Wars characters that were maybe more than a little bit influenced by how you write said characters for Re-Entry.  ;D)

You said in answer to someone else’s question that this is only the second part, and there will be a third. I want you to know that I am absolutely terrified of what is coming after this, but I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

You are amazing, never forget that.

Thank you  ❤

(And yeah, only the second arc of Re-Entry so far. There are…probably at least two more. Maybe three. This story basically is out of control and nobody cares, least of all me. *g* )

…I let out such a shriek of delight when I realized what this meant.  Then I *chinhands*ed really hard and kicked my feet a bit.  ^_______________^

I realize my queue has run out and I haven’t been around much in the past couple of days.  I’d like to say that I have a good reason, but, uh… does getting sucked down the well of a really fucking amazing fic count as a good reason?  Because I did.  And it’s all @dreamer-wisher-liar‘s fault.

So, yes.  This amazing fic called “Re-entry/Re-entry: Journey of the Whills” by flamethrower ate my life the past week.  And I was just so immediately immersed in and overwhelmed by it that I did the thing that I try to never ever ever do which is consume heavily without leaving comments and I just couldn’t even pull myself out of the fic long enough to think coherently about how I was reacting to it much less to SAY ANYTHING and it’s driving me a little up the wall, because now the thought of going back and trying to retro-comment is just really, really daunting.  O_o;;;

So, I will just say this: if you like SW and are a Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan fan, and you like a REALLY HEALTHY HELPING OF OBI-WAN ANGST IN YOUR FIC… you may want to sacrifice a week of your life to reading this thing.  Because it’s AMAZING.  It made me fall in love with characters I didn’t even know and it’s so unbelievably solid and complete and detailed and I AM HAVING SO MUCH FLAILING OVER HERE, IT’S RIDICULOUS.  I honestly can’t even speak coherently about it, but this is every. fucking. thing. that I ever wanted out of a SW fic and I just can’t words and OMFG, I hope the author checks their tags because I tried to @ them in this post and couldn’t and this is way too much squee to fit in an ask.  -.-;;;

Anyway.  Yes.  Coherency.  I have lost it.  *hangs head*  So, I will stop before I resort to keyboard smashing.  *coughs*  ^_^

(Also, as a general comment, goodness bless the old MA archive and its migration to AO3 because there is SO MUCH GOOD FIC THERE.)

Also, I will try to refill my queue later, but I confess I let it lapse a bit because there is so little Les Mis on my dash right now and I really, really want to try to keep to my “every other post is LM” thing and I’m just too damned tired right now to sift through the tags for stuff.  -.-;;;

…in other news, you know you’ve been sucked into a fandom when you try to find a tea blend for a character on Adagio and can’t find one you like and end up SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING MAKING ONE.  Oh Obi-Wan… the things you do to me.  *shakes head fondly*  ^_^

How’s everyone else doing?
