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.  ^_^

you have made repeated mention of Obi-Wan doing an insane swan dive through Bothawui’s orbit in a fighter. is this in one of the clone wars episodes because i cannot remember it and cannot find it.

deadcatwithaflamethrower:

Nope, this is pre-Clone Wars RE canon, but after the start of the war. I’ve never written the scene out specifically, but:

There’s a blockade around Bothawui–like, full true coverage blockade of the planet, not that weird singular location like in TPM. (OMG SPACE, GEORGE, A PLANET HAS MORE THAN ONE ENTRANCE AND EXIT POINT WTF–I mean uhm, sorry. *cough*)

There’s a two day engagement where they cannot break through this fucking blockade–they can barely make a dent in it. Everything they throw at it, from gunship to star destroyer, is being repelled.

Anakin gets this *fabulous* idea that if the big stuff is all getting nailed, he can put on an EVA suit with enough fuel to get him through the blockade. Gravity will take care of the rest of his descent because of his proximity to the planet. He’s tiny, weaponless, low tech–the droids will ignore him.

(When asked how he would handle the burn of re-entry, Anakin shrugs and says it can’t be worse than Tatooine in the middle of the afternoon.)

Anakin leaves before Obi-Wan finds out. Obi-Wan discovers what his Padawan is doing, drops everything and bolts for a fighter, because no, no, and also no, Anakin, NO. Flies out and covers Anakin’s descent by basically being the bigger shiny object that the droids are all now concentrating their fire on.

And that’s how Obi-Wan Kenobi did something that Anakin Skywalker had NOT been able to do–fly a fighter through that damned blockade–earning the respect of the entirety of 7th Sky because HOLY SHIT.

That’s also the story of how Obi-Wan discovered that he now really, really, REALLY fucking hates to fly. (That fighter had to be scrapped post flight, mostly because it was so torn up from getting through the blockade that Obi-Wan promptly crashed it.)

It’s also the day that the 501st decided Skywalker was theirs forever, because someone had to make sure that crazy little shit stayed alive, because HOLY FUCKING SHIT.

It also marks the very last occasion when the droid army kept their control stations separate from their main concentration of troops, because being de-powered mid-conflict was an embarrassing way to lose a battle. *Again.*

And now you all know the story of the first Battle of Bothawuii.

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:

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)

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?

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.  ^_______________^

So there’s this website that lets you build your own custom lightsaber.

That’s one I would build as a Jedi. You can basically customize every detail, from the pommel all the way to the color and length of the blade.

There are so many options. Want a shoto lightsaber like Yoda? Boom. Done.

Want a long-handled lightsaber with a red blade that could effectively be wielded like a spear?

It’s yours. This opens so many possibilities for creating your own characters or just being a huge geek like me.

Please feel completely free to add the ones you make.

Morgyn’s saberstaff:

With the short blades and a hilt three feet long, it suits my style of fighting, and even unlit can be used to break bones and leave deep bruises.

I wanted to make a shiny. Went with the parts that felt best in my head when I saw them.  that’s the Jedi Way right?
