The third-year photo theme was: Third Years!

And the second-year photo was: Badges!  

Imagine prince!Woozi asking you to sing for him after finding out that you often sing to yourself while working.

With a new wave of Wedge Antilles fans, there’s a new wave of ‘oh god why didn’t that actor come back for episode VII’* posts and I just… *head in hands*

I get it! I get it. It would have been nice to see Wedge one more time. But like… as far as I can tell, Wedge was meant to be where Lor San Tekka was. Which means he’d probably be completely, absolutely dead. I don’t want that. Also, it should hardly be a surprised - Lawson was asked if he’d like a part in Revenge of the Sith and gave a pretty swift no on that one, too.

Watch this interview. Just watch Denis Lawson’s face when the interviewer brings up Star Wars at 3:24 or so. (Also, note – Denis only has one ‘n’ in it. Maybe the Star Wars credits guys couldn’t get it right, but we CAN.) That is a man who does not particularly care for it. And why should he – it was a couple of weeks work, at most, done early on in his career. Hell, he wasn’t even the first choice for Wedge Antilles! (That’s why we have fake!Wedge in the Yavin briefing scene!)

This is a man with a long, varied, and interesting career, who won an Olivier and was nominated for an Emmy, who’s been in some much beloved British film and television series, and has done some really stunning work: wouldn’t you be annoyed if all anyone wanted to talk to you about was a series of movies you had a bit part in forty years ago where you didn’t even do anything interesting? (Also, by all accounts he’s perfectly lovely and cordial towards private Star Wars fans at conventions etc. And he did agree to do some more Star Wars work in 2001, when we provided some fresh voice-over for Wedge in one of the Rogue Squadron video games.)

I mean, just… please, before you begrudge his lack of patience with Star Wars, maybe watch something else he’s been in, and you’ll appreciate how utterly wasted he was on Star Wars?

He was in Local Hero (1983) playing scottish hotel owner / accountant / town leader Gordon Urquhart, in possibly the most charming movie I’ve ever seen, about an American oil company attempting to buy up a Scottish village. (Also has baby!Peter Capaldi in, if that’s to your taste)

Or how about british telly institution New Tricks, where the Metropolitan Police forms a unit out of retired police officers to help crack unsolved cases. He’s in series 9 through 12 of this, and is a delight as grumpy scottish detective Steve McAndrew.

Or The Ambassador, where he plays MI6 agent John Stone, liason and friend to the British Ambassador to Ireland just after the troubles / before the Good Friday agreement. They only made two series of this delightful little show, but he’s fantastic in it. (US viewers note that I believe this is on Amazon Prime for you, it may be available elsewhere)

Or, you know, Dead Head (1986) aka, the one where he’s handcuffed to the bathtub and you see his bottom a lot? He plays Eddie Cass, a man who finds himself accused of murder and on the run from the British Security Services.

Essentially he’s been in a whole lot of things. You could also check out Bleak House (2005) (period victorian drama, Dickens, stars Gillian Anderson and about everyone else ever), Marchlands (2012) (period post war drama, also has Alex Kingston) or Kit Curran (he wears the most obnoxiously eighties outfits ever. Reunites him with Lindsay Duncan in s2). Or like… just check out his IMDB page. He’s good in pretty much everything I’ve ever seen him in :D And remember that, yes, he might well be Wedge and we love him for it, but oh gosh he is so much more than that.

(One last thing: if you are curious about Denis, I’d also recommend this absolutely charming interview with his nephew, Ewan McGregor, if only for a) the giddy way he says ‘I got to work with my Uncle Denis!’ and b) the sheepish look on his face when he brings up Denis being in Star Wars, as if to say, sorry Uncle, I know you hate talking about it :D)

people who act interested and receptive when you’re talking? amazing.

things i like: illidan as a character

things i dislike: legion’s blatant attempts to make me sympathize with illidan while simultaneously ignoring the pretty terrible things he’s done

If thubgs dont change until freddies 2 birthday will you still believe that louis is forced to do this and maybe consider that this is something he wants?! Cause right now it seems like this will never end, there is no movement and everything is just weird :/

Seems to me there is A LOT of movement, though? No idea where it’s going, but for the first time in so long, I do see some movement! I think it’s pretty pointless to set deadlines like that at this point? The moment I am too tired/bored/offended/disgusted I’ll stop caring. I’ve spent a couple weeks barely mentioning 1D, it’s not difficult for me (it has been in the past, quite a lot). Only thing I know for sure is that I’ll never ever switch side of the fandom. I have a dignity. And a brain. 

Nikola Tesla is the greatest b/c he loved pigeons and science and wanted to provide people with electricity at low cost but he was also lowkey trying to build a death beam.

(Yes I HC Makki to be the most ridiculous person ever when it comes to clothing. Not all the time, but sometimes, just to provoke. Esp. when he’s meeting up with friends)
