I was leading my droid along a dusty Tatooine desert road,

When along came a speeder with a hotshot flying all alone.

"If you're going to Mos Eisley, m’am, with me you can ride."

And so I took my BB1 and then we settled down inside.

He asked me if I'd ever seen a rock so dull and dry.

And I said, "Listen, kid, I've been to every planet in the sky!"

Why did HBO move their Bright Lights documentary up to a time when it would conflict directly with the mid-season premiere of Star Wars: Rebels? I would've liked the have properly watched the former, but the latter took priority. It was a good premiere, too, even if the dialogue fell victim to being aimed at the younger age bracket near its end. It's also a new comfort when watching to know for a fact that Hera, Chopper, and the Ghost at least will survive to see the events of Rogue One, although I'm still not sure whether they survive the events of that movie or not.
Unnerved by the latest behavior of Congress. Of course they were going to target government employees, and nobody's even going to call them out for the racism of doing so. And I'm not even attached to anything that offends them too much, since most of them don't seem to even notice libraries. But what if they go after every federal employee who ever made a liberal tweet in their lives? Also over WikiLeaks' latest threat. My sister's a verified user on Twitter; they'd go after her. They too I knew to be bad news, even when the rest of the left supported them. You always view these people differently when yours is the name they might leak, especially if you never did much significant in your life.

The first few times Padawans were sent forth to work apart from their Masters for a significant period of time, it was impossible to help the feeling of freedom, a little time away from supervision. )

At long last, the final day of this horrid year. Although the forecast of next year, of course, is looking still worse. Unless they decide to drop the a-bombs tonight and kill us before we reach it. I intend to go to bed long before midnight tonight. If the year ends with apocalypse, I'd rather die in my sleep.
It's strange, though, that for me this actually wasn't a bad year at all. It was the best year in my sister's life, as she finally made a dream come true and now can make her living blogging about pop culture. While she was at it, she was able to make me a paid blogger too. I'm barely making enough to cover my IceNetwork subscription each year(and that's if they don't raise the rate on that. Again), but I'm getting read by a hell of a lot more people than I was. I also got promoted at my day job, although the stress that's brought with it makes me wonder if it's actually worth the extra money...
Also, I wrote a lot of fic, especially during the first half of the year. I think the year might even be about to end with my getting podficced for the second time; after IPTE sent the gifts out, I got followed on Twitter by a podficcer, making me seriously wonder if she'd just gotten as her gift one of my fics recorded. Also, around the time the exchange started, another one favorited my tweet linking to "The One You're With." Meant as a bookmark? (It sure is flattering either way!)
Semi-morbid funny story: as my mother learns about Carrie Fisher, whom she has already developed a great admiration for as a writer, she also for the first time saw her famous hairbuns. Her reaction? To ask me why she was wearing Mickey Mouse ears, and was that deliberate?

Saw Rogue One last night. It was a powerful movie. It would've been at any time, and released in our current circumstances, it is even more so. Yet a day later, I'm still not fully sure what how I feel about it. It went by very fast: modern-paced, in contrast to the original trilogy, made at a time when the pace wasn't so fast. The prequels were a little faster, I suppose, but they were a bit unsteady anyway, and I didn't feel it the way I did with Rogue One. Maybe if I see it again, but I don't know when I'll have time. I kind of really want to see La La Land, and I suspect mom and I will go to something different than that Christmas Day.
Today mom and I went to see The Second Shepherd's Play at the Folger, a very old and very silly play where the antics of the shepherds before they went to see Jesus weren't quite so dignified. Period music, too, which I always love. In the gift shop I showed mom the Shakespeared versions of Star Wars, and she bought me The Empire Striketh Back. I've read the first two acts so far. It's really weird at times, but hilarious at others.
Everyone urging the electors to go crazy, but really, what's the use? It's clear they won't simply flip in favor of Hilary, and even if they do manage to throw it into the House, they'll just elect Trump anyway.

I have spent the week working on a figure-skating blog post for my sister's new blog on Fansided. She wanted it yesterday, and I delivered it, but I'm not sure when it's actually going up, or when the blog is for that matter. Between that and watching the Olympics, though I finished the latest part of "Their Duties to the Queen" last weekend, I didn't get around to posting it until I'd finish the next part of "All the Extras" too!

It took them about a week after they arrived in Australia to track Hermione’s parents to Brisbane, where just after lunch they found themselves walking to the front door of a comfortable house in a northern suburb called Wavell Heights.

Notes: I am relying on a single EU/Legends source which claims that as Queen Padmé had 13 handmaidens, and the five we saw in TPM were merely the ones with her at all times.

When Yané departed Piyoeré with Pamé Vollenna roughly twenty minutes later, their speeder was dragging behind it a sledger currently folded up into a long rectangular capsule, with a jury-rigged anti-grav on the bottom allowing it to float behind them and without using up any of its own energy, a last minute extra idea of Schrulek’s.">

Did some drawing this morning, deciding that years after I drew Padmé first three handmaidens dressed for her funeral, I should probably continue with those, so here's Yané

In 2005, when I was immersed in the Star Wars fandom and especially in the world of Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon slash, I first read and got hooked on Emila-Wan & Mal Wane's WIP 368 Days, and was especially blown away by the intense love story of the fic's two original characters, Grogan Doyle and Vareth Ridell. When the rate of posts started to slow down to one a month, to encourage the two authors, I created a fanmix covering their relationship during the first half of the story, with a promise to do another for the second half when the fic was complete. Now, ten years later, it finally is, and I hereby keep my promise and have done the second volume of the fanmix.

Nearly done with three other things too. Definitely posting my next song tomorrow, if only because if I spend another week rehearsing it I will go crazy.
By the way, anyone have any good ideas for alternatives to Twitter besides Facebook? I'm starting to think I might want one.

It was true that Master Yoda would sometimes make a plan with only a small part of the Council and then present it to the rest of them later, but it was rare that Mace himself was not one of the ones making such plans with him. )

Been writing a good deal this week. Lots of kudos for my old Star Wars works at AO3; traffic is up. Finished the first part of one fic and the eleventh part of another last night, so I'm just posting them to my website and linking to them here. I spent much of the day HTMLing, when I wasn't out seeing The Force Awakens, which was a pretty great movie, by the way.

It was fully dark by the time word had passed around about the new arrivals, Yolierre had been taken off in possibly dire condition but still breathing, and the rest of them were taken to the local leader.

Date bought the tickets. We see Star Wars Saturday at 3:10. Meanwhile, the reviews are all good, and I still haven't been spoiled for anything yet.
That's more than can be said for Star Trek: Beyond, perhaps. See the possible Enterprise crashing makes me think they're trying to remake The Search for Spock in the style of The Fast and the Furious, and how they are going to do that when they didn't have anyone dead at the end of the last movie I'm not sure. I suspect noone's going to say it better than Wil Wheaton did, though my own reaction had me tweeting a Vine for the first time. I don't feel any need to actually see this if it doesn't turn out to be quite different from what it's looking like right now.
Also saw the Fantastic Beasts teaser, but that didn't really have enough in it for a reaction yet...
