The first of four new titles based on the original trilogy to hit stores October 2014!
Iain McCaig is going to illustrate some original trilogy based children’s books???? I know some Star Wars books I’ll be purchasing in the future.
I’ve got a pass to Wondercon on Friday. Anyone going?
Buckeye and Maggie
I finally got this pieced together. I had to scan it in four different parts because it was too big for the scanner.
Fun fact: The brown mix has heterochromia, but with two different browns instead of the more apparent blue/brown combo. It is not a trick of the light.
I have heard! Those should be… interesting.
Yeah, not totally sure how I feel about them bringing everyone back. I kind of wish they went the Legacy route and made them so far in the future it’s all new characters but have them related to the characters in the movies. Ugh, I never finished reading the Legacy comics, but they were one of the last things I was following before I sort of dropped SW. Trying to remember why I stopped keeping track, but I think it’s because I got more involved in the online dog agility community, and spent my time online doing that instead of lurking on SW message boards, haha.
I love the Zahn books like whoa. XD He has since improved his writing (been what, 20 years?), but they’re still good. Also what? Overhauled? Dang. Oh well, I’ve always been pick-my-own-canon with SW, so. Also, gosh thanks. <3
You’ve heard they’re making new post ROTJ movies right? That’s why I figure there is going to be major overhauling in that era. Pick-your-own-canon seems to be the way to go tbh, although I always thought that it was cool that almost any book, comic, or game I picked up was considered canon.
Gurl, I did! Got my cap and gown and everything, gotta pick them up on the 5th. And I did see the robot legs on Maul. Whoever they got to voice him is great, such a good balance of crazy and threatening.
AHHH CONGRATS! ;o;
I’m solidly in the original movies and a few years afterwards era. Read all them EU books as a teen. Also, Thrawn.
Sucks that era after the movies is mostly likely going to be totally overhauled. Ugh. TBH, I never read Zahn’s books, but I’m familiar with the characters through all the character guides and of course know Mara Jade because she married Luke, haha. Everyone praises those books so highly I should probably read them at some point. I don’t know why I didn’t all those years ago. Your Paski SW AU post was awesome. ;o; Reminded me of my good old SW days.

I like me some Zabrak, mmhm.
Girl, did you graduate? I haven’t seen you around this semester! Apparently Maul has been changed into a Zabrak/human hybrid now and called a Dathomiri? I FRICKING LOVED thaT OBI-WAN BROUGHT IT UP? All “I thought he was from Iridonia.” Basically the creators going yeaaah we know, but George made us do this… Sounds like things would have been waaay more in line with established EU if he hadn’t gotten involved. Maybe that would have hindered them though? I dunno.

I can go on about ObiAni for days.
You know the only pairings I talk about are professor fandom. Speaking of professor fandom, I was recently told about the greatest project I’ve ever heard of a student doing with professors. (After our fandom, of course.)
I’m just…thinking about Star Wars a lot rn. It’s bad.
Who likes talking about Star Wars? I kind of want to talk about Star Wars.
Ahahah I jUST realized that the time period I typically stick SW Ruu in has a 99.9% chance of being affected by the new movies.
Never really nailed down exact dates, but I think the earliest time period I messed with was during the YJK books. Then I was all lol no don’t want her to get stuck in the shit after that and pushed her back to post NJO, which is early Legacy era iirc. There’s still so much galaxy wide junk happening (galaxy wide conflicts in Star Wars? no way.), it makes me go hmmm.
I’ve always had her as a Jedi, although she became more a scientist (heck yeah xenobiology) than a warrior monk as time went on. I just wondered the other day if being a Jedi was necessary to her character (as if anyone but me cares????) but Jedi are cool so idk. I decided years ago that she wasn’t that great with a lightsaber, but communicating with animals is a legit Force power
and she’s a self insert and talking to animals would be cool. There used to be other dumb reasons for Force sensitivity, but since a species/ability change, they’re no longer valid.
I figured she could work for the new Jedi Archives (if they exist and I can’t remember if they did when I checked), studying various aliens and stuff and maybe taking some missions along the way. Mostly she’d be hoarding animals, though. I almost wonder if I should move her to a waaaaaay earlier era. Nah. This is just dumb rambling for a character I do nothing but doodle.
TLDR: Becca talked about her over ten year old SW fan character.
Messing with watercolors. I need to figure out what colors I want wtfopossums to be (other than brown with darker brown stripes and white markings of course). When I first doodled them I had so many colors and patterns, but I’m not so sure now. Although, I do have them as a domestic species so I can have several different colors.
