It was common knowledge to the first families of Arkanis that they
1) A dwindling number. Many married off-planet
and the unfortunately irreversible laws of primogeniture-based titles left the clever
daughters without their rightful inheritances. Many movements of parliament had attempted to repeal the legislation, however there were always obstacles that the women of Arkanis hoped would die of a heart attack sooner rather than later.
2) Bastard sons were so large common that they
were -more often than not-recognised as heirs.
3) Every marriage on Arkanis is chosen.
Now that third piece of knowledge was certainly uncommon practise for
aristocratic families of the inner-rim planets. Royal families of Naboo, Mandalore
and even Alderaan, often resorted to arrangements created by parents via
misinterpreted holomessages and Jedi negotiations of peace. Yet these
arrangements were often loveless, careless and while it did provide the
inner-rim planets the political power they required; what was the logic in that
for an upstart outer-rim planet like Arkanis?
Arkanis was after all, a military planet and nowhere near as ancient as
the inner-rim worlds. They prided themselves on their decorum and their
modernity. The first families of Arkanis were the families of Admirals and
Commadants and Generals and Colonels. Those who gained power as the Empire came
into fruition and those who skilfully navigated the minefield of politics
during that time.
Power on Arkanis, was to be gained by might -war and intellect-
not through something as private and delicate as the tempestuous state of marriage.
Sorry guys no pattern for this one. The sleeves were so challenging that I honestly don’t know how I pulled it off. I am working on a pattern for a straight forward polka dot sweater since I got so many likes and comments on the body, but it is still in the works!
just a couple of cute little shots of mine and Laura’s fem!Wirt & Greg from ECCC. Really stoked over how sharp these ended up looking, and we’ll definitely be wearing them again. And hopefully doing a shoot at Cypress Falls~?
