Episode: The Empire Strikes Back. Followed extremely closely by
Return of the Jedi. (and if I could extend this to mean favourite
book too, I’d say The Last Command, because those should have been
episodes anyway. Hmph.)
Character: Grand Admiral Thrawn. I’m stoked he’s gonna be in Rebels,
but fearful of what they might do to him. Also thrilled that in a
few short months I’ll get a new Zahn book about him.
\shrieking ….Actually within the movies for a favourite though, I
have a hard time choosing between Darth Maul, Darth Vader, and Grand
Moff Tarkin. I have no use for heroes.
Star Destroyer. The Chimera in particular. My god that is a
sexy ship. Followed closely by base-model TIE fighters. So much
and if we’re talking shippy ships… Pellaeon/Thrawn, Thrass/Thrawn,
Maul/Thrawn, (everyone/Thrawn, really), Hux/Kylo, and Tarkin/Vader
are all ships I’m currently flailing over. I also have a serious
thing for platonic Ahsoka/Maul, Ganodi/Grievous, and Boba Fett/Cad
Bane. But honestly I ship so many ships I can’t really stop at just
a few. I don’t think I actually like any of the canon ships all that
much, lol oops.
Actor/Actress from the Movies: Cushing and Daniels and Fisher and
Hamill and Isaac and Ridley were/are all precious noodles, and I
wish Cushing was still with us, because I would have loved for him
to have had the opportunity to be involved in a bunch of the new
Droid: R2D2 because nobody throws shade like that little fucker.
Scene: The opening scene from A New Hope of the Devastator coming
into frame will always give me chills. If I can include book
scenes though, the scene in The Last Command where Thrawn and Mazzic
are standing there in the main hangar of the Chimera, and Mazzic is
just tossing snark after snark at Thrawn as if he’s not a
prisoner, in binders, and thinking he’s about to undergo torture.
The man has balls. (We all know Thrawn decided to be a gentleman,
forgo the torture, and opt for letting him go, but I mean Mazzic had
no way of knowing that while he was there)
Side, Grey Jedi, Dark Side? I’m a Dark Sider, through and through. I
live fiercely, love fiercely, and I will without regret trample over anyone who
tries to prevent me from getting what I want out of life. Strength is power. Self-determination is power. No one
tells me what to do and you will pry my independence only from my
cold dead hands. That being said. I’m also a pretty amiable guy. The
two are not mutually exclusive. <3 (…although if we’re just
talking about which factions we’d align ourselves with, let’s be
honest if I was suddenly thrust into the SW universe I would be
applying for the Imperial Academy SO FAST you’d think I could enter
hyperspace without a ship)
Movie You Saw from the Saga: A New Hope. I was smol. My folks had
plugged in the VHS, and I came inside from doing something like
digging in the dirt right at the scene where the dianoga pops its
eye out of the trash compacter muck and then grabs Luke. One look at
creepy alien eyeball and I was hooked.
At that age I didn’t watch anything
unless it was short, animated, and involved lots of animals, so
getting me to sit down and watch an entire actual movie
was nothing short of a miracle. The following days we watched ESB
and RotJ and I was even more hooked because BOBA FETT and JABBA THE
HUTT (these were the original releases so they didn’t show up ‘til
ESB and TotJ then) and I remember being really upset that Jabba got
choked and Fett got dropped into the Sarlacc and Vader threw the
Emperor down the shaft. But then I started saving my allowance so I
could buy the toys and recreate my favourite scenes the RIGHT WAY
(it started early) and here we are. Adding way too much tl;dr to a
Crush? ALL OF THEM. I mean. Well. My biggest ones would be Thrawn,
Maul, Tarkin, Kylo Ren, Mazzic, Jabba, Thrass, and Cad Bane. But
honestly I have to keep lists to keep track of all of my crushes,
shit’s crazy. But a good bet is that if there’s an Imperial uniform on someone, I have a crush on them.
The Doctor: The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.
