I just really love the STAR WARS prequels a lot, that they may be flawed in a lot of ways, but the sheer amount of potential there and the things they did right are so good and I care about these characters so much and I love the world that was built around them and the myriad of ways that I suffer because of them and because of fic that makes everything worse in the best ways, and I just really need to share my feelings about them.
I LOVE THESE JERKS SO MUCH, JOIN ME IN CRYING ABOUT THEM. (Fic recs every Wednesday.)
