mara jade is more than luke’s love interest. i feel like the star wars fandom just kind of ignores her, and it’s really unfair. some of the fandom even hates her. but hating her because her relationship with luke doesn’t fit your headcanon, or for whatever reason (that’s the #1 reason i’ve seen mara hate on tumblr), that’s really not fair. she’s so much more than luke’s wife. she overcame years of psychological manipulation/abuse by emperor palpatine. she was just like “ok, screw that; i’m gonna go places anyway. i’m gonna do more with my life than just be someone’s puppet.” her character is so dynamic; she’s written better than some characters i’ve seen on screen. she just happens to be luke’s wife. that’s just part of the amazing character that is mara jade.
