Hand-bound Daring-Do Replica by DaiKamonohashi Hand-bound Daring-Do Replica by DaiKamonohashi
"DPBRNWD-DO MND TRE GEISL SARPWIRE SFOIE!"

So this submission does two things. First, it makes it clear to my followers (if it weren't known before) that, yes, thanks to :iconkaijusamurai:'s influence, I've been a Brony for a little less than a year now. Secondly, it's my first post to dA showing off my newfound bookbinding skills! I've learned how to bind books in the past few months and it's been an AWESOME craft to mess around with. Incredibly tedious but super-rewarding because I'm making BOOKS and I LOVE BOOKS. AUGH. OH GOD I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. AFIDDVJKNFSGVOI:Naeklnd, etc.

Anyway, what we have here is a replica of "Daring-Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone," the book featured in the episode "Read it and Weep" (Season 2, Episode 16), that I bound by hand because I damn well could. And it was fun. The image I used for the cover was a lovely recreation of the in-show cover by :iconcptofthefriendship:, who graciously allowed me to utilize it for this project.

I will definitely be sharing more of my bookbinding projects in the near future as well!

Does it even have the chapters Written on the pages?

No, it's just a blank book.

...you too, huh?

Seriously, my case of Bronitis(R) was contracted secondhand, c/o some of the utterly ridiculous fanartistry hereabouts. Since then, I've become far too familiar with cutesy-toon horse-critters, friendship rainbows & memes that will not die. You have my respect for channeling this condition into a tangible (and adorable) product, as opposed to several hours a night minimizing windows so the siblings don't catch on.

Say, incredibly stupid crossover idea: Rarity vs. Space Godzilla and/or Krystalak. To be specific, said duel's aftermath, wherein the former struts off with a massive stockpile of 'exotic mineral deposits' being levitated in her wake...whilst the latter, painfully shorn of dermal decorations, fills the background despite doing its best Traumatized Fetal Curl(TM).

Wait, that made sense to you? Let's see...I was only recently educated in the fine art of "plz" posts...oh, right:

Ew, you posted a Transformer on one of my pages. Nope, guess I won't be drawing it now.

Apologies. Don't suppose M.Bison would've been any better?

Yes, though not exactly *inspiring*. I am fairly neutral toward Street Fighter.

Well, clearly it's time to find a decent shoot-self-in-the-foot icon. Wish me luck.

...dare I ask what put you off TF? I'd guess Bay, but that's almost too easy.

Haha. :icongfan2332: forced me to sit through the animated movie from the 80s and about twenty minutes into it I realized, "Wow, I really, really hate the entire concept and execution of these things." Also, the movie itself made my ears bleed. Gyaos-style.
