I already know that I’m late to the party but a LOT of things happened while I made this, including events like my Patreon reaching it’s 6 month anniversary, this blog getting nearer to 2,000 followers, and @therealjacksepticeye reaching 13 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS.

I don’t know about you, but that is beyond amazing.

So basically, this is a little tribute to every single one involved in these events, specially including @pixlpit whose magic sparked an old passion I had with video editing, @furiarossa, @petzemz, @vi0lentquiche, and other Patrons whose tumblr I’m not sure are the right ones, the entire JSE community whose support this last week just blew me away, and of course Jack himself. Last month was incredible, and this is me saying that I am so glad you had fun along the way.

Thank you for being awesome. Don’t stop being awesome. :)

As much of an “oh shit” moment this was, I was really hoping my Sith warrior was going to get a really good dig in at Quinn by saying something along the lines of “Look Quinn, this is how you build a murder-droid!” at some point. 

Of course then I’d have to comfort him later; “there there honey it’s not your fault your droids were hilariously underwhelming.”

In all seriousness though, my personal head canon was that it really wasn’t anything to do with him or how he built his droids, it was all the Sith Warrior. Up until the Quinncident, our battles are really just “business as usual”. Sith are taught to channel their passions and anger into their fighting, and while something like the betrayal from Darth Baras was likely very infuriating, it was also somewhat expected. Sith infighting seems to be pretty common in the Empire, and apprentices attempting to oust their master or vice-versa is most definitely nothing new, if not expected at some point. 

But Quinn, however, was something entirely different. From our point of view, he practically begs to be allowed to come with us (going so far as to get down on his knee, listing all of his “qualifications”), tries hard to be of practical use (which he really is), and all the while perpetuates this image of being extremely loyal to both you and the Empire. So when the Quinncident happens, it’s that much of a slap in the face to the Sith Warrior. 

We expected it from Baras at some point. We expected it from everyone we call “allies” in the Sith and we expected it from anyone and anything at the other end of our lightsaber. We did not, however, see it coming from Quinn, and after everything the Sith Warrior and Quinn had gone through together, whether it was a simple respectful Sith Lord/subordinate relationship or a romantic one, it stings. It is a very personal sting, and I don’t think Quinn with all his cold calculations and observations realized just how much this personal sting could effect the warrior, because Sith run purely on passion and anger. 

So, when his droids are rolled out and he’s trying to talk up his reasons for doing it, the Sith Warrior is beginning to boil with rage, confusion, grief, and a lot of other uncontrolled feelings that come with this very personal betrayal. Said feelings are channeled into what is probably a barely controlled fighting style, and suddenly we see the Sith Warrior fighting at 200% of their strength because, well, they’re pissed off. More than they have ever been. Quinn is completely at a loss because naturally he’s never really seen the Sith Warrior fight like this, and I think in the 30 seconds it takes for the warrior to dismantle his droids completely, he realizes in the back of his mind how he’s completely underestimated your emotional strength. 

So really, I personally don’t think the droids being weak had anything to do with Quinn’s abilities or competence, and everything to do with the way our Sith Warrior is feeling. of course this whole thing is likely moot since this fight was probably very harder in previous patches and just got nerfed over the years

Why he did it could probably be traced back to Darth Baras. I know a lot of people see his betrayal as “wtf you chose him over me??” and while I agree that it can come down to that, I think that is seriously over-simplifying how much deep shit Quinn was in. And I think people severely underestimate Darth Baras and his hold on him. For us as the Sith Warrior it’s very easy to say that we’re going to wipe the floor with his face because we’re the main characters, but in-universe, Darth Baras’ shadow towers over everything in the Empire. 

So, upstart new-face apprentice who is apparently very strong with a lightsaber vs established chronic backstabbing Sith Lord who controls everything from the shadows. I think I know whose money the bulk of the Empire’s bet would be on.

New Character: Volpina

With the announcement of “an Italian girl in Paris,” many have been speculating who this mystery girl is. It’s likely that it’s Volpina, and I wanted to put out my two cents on who she is and what role she’ll play in the show.
