    Well, to be fair, everything in book 1 ("Dune" is split into two books like the Lord of the Rings volumes) until the last chapter is essentially "setting".

    This is probably how things would play out if I can ever get my world in order enough to get back to writing. I don't have much in the way of long narrative in me, but I love world creation and lots of little details here and there. Sometimes the story is just an excuse.

    This Jump Leads script I'm working on is, I think, brilliant. First thing I've written in days that I'm happy with.

    Script? That's pretty exciting.

    When's your next book supposed to come out?

    I find that the story and characters grow from the world, often. I began with the setting for my novel, but by the time I was finished writing it I cared a lot more about the characters and the plot.

    I'm still struggling with finding a plot worth throwing my characters at. My world has many events, but my instinct is to stray away from epic scale and more into the daily life of people living in a fantasy world, albeit those with more interesting lives than average. Reptilian barristers and shamanistic detectives and whatnot.

    What makes Dune as good as it is, despite going batshit stupid eventually, is how skillfully the setting is presented in those first couple hundred pages. Dense, incredibly complicated, making no pretense of "bringing the reader up to speed" and not apologizing for the fact. You can read it half a dozen times and still notice new details each time.

    And, most importantly, everything in book 1 is exceedingly internally consistent and reasonable given the basic premises.

    Probably the easiest to miss point that really sets up all in the intrigue in the first place is that the spice is a fairly recent discovery. No definite dates for anything are ever given but the impression is that it was only a couple generations previous.

    And so into a fairly stable society is introduced a new commodity. So overwhelmingly useful that every single human would want it if not need it yet only available on Dune itself: a drug that can extend life - easily doubling human lifespan - yet is also fatally addictive after long term exposure. "The spice must flow", because the implication of it not is complete collapse of their entire civilization. They have become utterly dependant upon it.

    "Professor Xavier's wheelchair from the first movie was bought by a lawyer (who also works for the same law firm as Patrick Stewart's attorney). When production began, the studio realized they had no chair anymore, so the lawyer rented it back to the studio - as Stewart said in an interview - "for a significant sum"."

    You'd think buying a wheelchair would be a better choice. That way, after you are done with it, you can then sell the chair on ebay.

    When people from our class are around I feel like she wishes I would go away, when we're the only ones from our class around I feel like she wishes I wouldn't go away. I have no idea what to do with this so I just do my job as best I can and try to ignore it and vent at random strangers on the intertrons so that it can't come back on me.

    that doesn't seem to be a terribly healthy way to approach the situation, but that's me.
    have you tried asking for clarification or testing obvious cues to see how she responds?
    it seems to me based only on these posts that she might be shy about advertising to classmates that she might be interested in you, not that she is embarrassed by you.

    Made a point not to get her number early on so I couldn't drunk-dial her and make working for her awkward, but there's no more work to be done so I might e-mail her tomorrow if I don't convince myself that that's too creepy and opt to just not do anything since we're both graduating anyway.

    "The script was not completely prepared when filming began, since the filmmakers were more focused on the story and the action, so the dialogue was mostly ad-libbed throughout filming; Jon Favreau acknowledged this made the film feel more natural. Some scenes were shot with two cameras to capture lines improvised on the spot; Robert Downey Jr. would ask for many takes of one scene since he wanted to try something new. Gwyneth Paltrow, on the other hand, had a difficult time trying to match Downey with a suitable line, as she never knew what he would say."
