Real quick, for the end of KOTOR anniversary day, here is my Revan. My definitive Revan. I have played others and I know there are hundreds more, but this is mine. Orange Ribbon Revan. Snarky, jerk with a heart of gold Revan. Who gave to the poor at first just because Carth kind of guilted her into it, but then gave a LOT just to peeve him. And sort of became a good jedi with that same method.
It’s still one of the best games I’ve ever played. You get so into the story. I remember talking about it for weeks. My husband saw through the plot twist immediately, but luckily never let on. But I think that’s what makes it such a good one. And it felt so very Star Wars, in a time of prequels.
Fandom: Knights of the Old Republic Pairing: F!Revan/Carth Onasi Warning: character death
Title comes from something Malak says to Revan: “You belong to neither the light nor the darkness. You will forever stand alone.” I wrote this, as one does, in a text message at around midnight because I wanted to give @letmetellyouaboutmyfeels some feels to tell people about. It comes from two things: an exploration of Revan choosing the dark side ending without being wholly evil (inspired by something Kreia says about Revan becoming dark lord out of necessity) and the cut dark side ending with the Carth romance.
Last year we kicked off this blog in August with a headcanon and fanworks week. Much of the feedback we received was that people wanted the event to be longer, so this year we’ll be hosting Queering Star Wars II for the entire month of June with a new prompt for each day. We don’t expect anyone to respond to all of these prompts, just pick the ones that resonate with you.
Headcanon Week: June 1st-5th
Wednesday June 1st: Gay & Lesbian Headcanons
Thursday: Bi and Pan Headcanons
Friday: Trans and Intersex Headcanons
Saturday: Aromantic and Asexual Spectrum Headcanons
Sunday: Any other Queer Headcanons (i.e. characters you headcanon simply as queer without any other labels, or characters you headcanon as having multiple queer identities that you’d like to discuss together, etc.)
Meta Questions & Prompts Week: June 6th-12th
These prompts are worded very broadly, feel free to make your responses as specific as you’d like to particular orientations/genders or groups within the Star Wars galaxy (i.e. the Jedi/Mandalorians/Empire/Rebellion/Etc.)
Monday June 6th: What are pride events like in the Star Wars galaxy?
Tuesday: What is queer culture like in the Star Wars galaxy?
Wednesday: What is queer acceptance like in the Star Wars galaxy?
Thursday: What is queer history like in the Star Wars galaxy? Who are the historical figures?
Friday: How does the advanced medical technology in the Star Wars galaxy help the queer characters? Is it easier for trans characters to transition if they choose to do so? Are there ways for queer couples who would not be able to have biological children with our current technology to do so in the SW galaxy?
Saturday: Headcanons you have about characters discovering their queer identities.
Sunday: Headcanons you have about characters being accepted by their friends and family.
