Reason #50000198 to buy the Ashlesha hardcover edition: the freaking paper.
Now, mind you, this is coming from a book connoisseur and someone who is *hyper* particular about what she touches. I’ve felt all KINDS of paper, and this book is in at least the top three in terms of quality paper. AND THAT COVER??? SO SMOOTH? THICK??? I’m honestly scared to take this thing out in public with me lest something sully its beauty.
Just. Mmm. This has absolutely nothing to do with the actual story – I just really appreciate this fine-ass paper.

A group of muggle born Ravenclaws, who were interested in filmmaking, got together and formed a film production club at Hogwarts. One year, the club made a Star Wars remake starring their pet cats. Rumor has it, McGonagall played Princess Leia.
So are you following @hippano yet? If not, you need to be if you love you some good art!
I commissioned them to draw me a FinnRey high school athletes AU. Rey is a soccer player, Finn is a football player, and Poe (who is in this pic in spirit and in droid doodles) is their upperclassman best friend who is somehow both the world’s biggest nerd and the most popular guy in school. BB-8 is his ridiculously elaborate science fair project that he insists has a mind of its own.
Anyway, it’s adorable and I love it. 10/10 would commission again.
