Since we’re getting our salt out:
-The Jedi Council isn’t abusive
-You can’t shit on the Jedi Council while being a fan of Obi Wan, Shaak Ti, or Plo Koon. Cause by calling the Council stupid/abusive/cruel/negligent/whatever else, you’re also calling those three stupid/abusive/cruel/negligent
-Saesee Tiin is a very important member of the Jedi Order, and is damn impressive in everything he does and deserves proper recognition damn it
-Cham Syndulla can be a really shitty father at times, but to say he doesn’t love Hera with his entire being is to completely ignore an important piece of his character
-Cham is very psychologically damaged and extremely mentally unstable, he acts the way he does for a fucking reason oh my god why am I even saying this
To both sides of Qui-Gon, Jedi and judicials were beginning to climb from the lake, their waterlogged tunics and uniforms weighing them down. Following Qui-Gon’s lead, Obi-Wan sprang from the water, landing atop one of the smaller rocks. Vergere floated in like a water fowl until she reached the stony beach, then she called on her powerful reverse-articulated legs to catapult her ashore. Saesee Tiin’s big hands cut through the waves like flippers. Yaddle rode in atop Ki-Adi-Mundi’s broad shoulders, her short arms wrapped around his tall head, and her topknot of golden-brown hair plastered to her green skull.
Close by, Depa Billaba stepped gracefully to the beach, as if emerging from a warm bath.
Everyone else is struggling while Depa walks out the lake like a Queen (James Luceno, ‘Cloak of Deception’)
Hi nonnie! Can’t believe I ever get asked this question, didn’t think anyone was interested lmao
Saesee Tiin - council member, precious cinnamon roll, nervous wreck - @silcntjedi Sha Koon - Plo Koon’s niece, the tiniest disaster, absolutely precious - @kidkeldor Cham Syndulla - Hera’s okayish dad, he tries, French rebel but in space - @ofryloth Nubraa Ti - the most precious cinnamon roll, Shaak’s nephew, hasn’t thought a single mean thing in his entire life - @starrbcy
Pictured here are Jedi Masters Adi Gallia and Stass Allie, and Eeth Koth and Agen Kolar. You might think they bear a certain resemblance to each other - and you would be right!
TPM was filmed in England, whereas AotC was filmed in Australia. George Lucas intended to re-use the Jedi Council members in AotC but hired new Australian actors to play them (why they couldn’t just fly out the original actors from England is beyond me).
For some Jedi, the ones wearing more substantial makeup like Plo Koon and Saesee Tiin, having a different actor playing the character was fine. But for Eeth Koth and Adi Gallia, the difference between the actors was much more pronounced. LFL rightly decided they couldn’t try to pass these people off as the same characters and, in a bit of a retcon, created two entirely new characters - Stass Allie and Agen Kolar.
In some ways, I’ve always regretted that they didn’t use the original actors, since it would have given Adi Gallia (my favorite prequel Jedi!) a much larger role in all three prequels. But on the other hand, there are now four interesting Jedi characters instead of just two!
Apa kabar? Engkau yang tak mungkin bersemayam di Banyuwangi dan tentu saja itu tidak mungkin. Engkau di atas Arsy sekaligus lebih dekat dari nadi.
Kau tentu saja sudah tahu apa yang akan kutuliskan ini. Bahkan sebelum segala sesuatunya Kau ciptakan, bermiliar-miliar juta tahun yang lalu. Tapi bolehkan Kau biarkan aku menuntaskan tulisan ini? Aku takkan menangis.
Maaf Tuhan, lagi-lagi aku berkeluh-kesah, merengek-rengek seperti anak kecil yang tak mau diatur. Apakah Kau bosan padaku? Tentu tidak, bukan? Sebab aku yakin Kau mencintaiku, maka untuk itu aku diciptakan.
I got some really nice feedback on Wake and Gambit lately, which means I’ve been thinking idly about the Watchtower universe (still on hold, no one get too excited), so here are five things that are (currently) true at the start of the third Ouroboros story.
1. Mace Windu is the Grand Master of the Jedi Order. It’s unknown whether or not Yoda survived the Purge, but as he hasn’t been accounted for, that’s everyone’s working assumption.
2. Current Council members include: Mace Windu, Plo Koon, Adi Gallia, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Depa Billaba, Kit Fisto, Agen Kolar, Saesee Tiin, Luminara Unduli, K’kruhk, T’ra Saa, and Aayla Secura.
3. Roughly a quarter of all clones in the GAR remained loyal to their Jedi generals.
4. The Jedi Order is currently operating out of a long-abandoned Jedi Temple on an undisclosed planet known only as the Hidden Temple.
5. At the start of the story (or the epilogue of Gambit), there are still several hundred Jedi unaccounted for a year after the Purge, including Shaak Ti, Oppo Rancisis, and Yoda.
Wow, that empty seat is really glaring. Also, wow, for once they got everyone still alive back to Coruscant; usually a couple to the majority of those seats are filled with holograms.
(Obi-Wan, so done with everything in this scene. Obi-Wan is not having with literally any of this nonsense. Saesee Tiin’s looking at him like, “Obi-Wan, you need a nap, you need a square meal, you need to stop doing crazy shit and watching people die. And insulting people. Stop that.”)
…man, just look how worn the Council Chamber floor is.
