jacenation

this disturbing trend of calling biracial people ‘white’ when they’re light skinned really needs to fucking stop. 

Stop saying shit like ‘well they’re so white so they might as well be white’

or

‘yeah but they’re only half poc’

biracial people are POC there is no two ways about that.

and y’all wonder why biracial people end up making their own little communities for other biracial people or they end up hating themselves because they’re told they aren’t poc enough.

Stop pretending that black/white biracial folks are the only ones out there. Stop ignoring the afro-latinxs, the ones who have both asian and white ancestry, the ones who are part middle eastern and white, the ones who are both middle eastern and asian. Any combo you can think of they fucking exist. 

And stop acting like biracial kids have to be a perfect mixture of their parents. That isn’t how genetics fucking works. Some of us are a deep olive, others are just as black as their black parent, and others are nearly as white as a wedding dress which doesn’t make them white simply white passing. 

Stop making biracial kids hate themselves, hate their skin, hate their hair, hate everything about themselves. Stop telling them which side of themselves they should take pride in. Stop telling them how to identify. Stop telling those who are partially white that they shouldn’t shittalk white people, when 99% of the time the white part of their family hates them. They have every right to shittalk white people. 

There something about Jacen Zhu that makes me crave him whenever I see him in a scene. He’s so sexy and sweet, he has a very sweet smiles and I love when he moans. Maybe it’s because he’s verse and so am I and we would fuck like there’s no tomorrow…. But I would really love to fuck him

Take a moment and think about how annoyed Kylo Ren would be if he knew that his siblings from another universe:

1) Had a special destiny and was named the ‘Sword of the Jedi’ by Luke (Jaina)
2) Became an actual sith lord with a cool sith name and everything (Jacen)
3) Was named after their grandfather (Anakin)

He would have the tantrum of all tantrums. The damages would probably bankrupt the first order tbh

Like seriously, I refuse to believe that Han and Leia split up over a kid going to the Dark Side or Luke just giving up and going into exile over one student, even his nephew going to the Dark Side. The characterization in The Force Awakens just makes me mad cause I’ve read dozens of books and have seen the character development of the original trilogy trio over the course of near 40 years after Return of the Jedi and it just makes me mad. Cause Han and Leia stood strong in their marriage despite a hostile extra Galactic invading species killing both Chewbacca and their 14 year old son Anakin, their other son Jacen becoming a Sith, him killing Luke’s wife Mara, and having to be killed by his twin, their daughter Jaina. And they both still kept up their roles as a General and Chief of State/Ambassador all the while.

And Luke, bless this dude, not only fully rebuilt the Jedi Order, but in his first class of Jedi, when Kyp Durron went to the Dark Side he went out and brought him back and redeemed him. He had to deal with internal schisms in the Order about the nature of the force and the role of the Jedi and kept the peace and the order united. He lead the Jedi through a war with the Yuuzahn Vong that saw trillions die and helped end the war on diplomatic terms just like his mother Padme would have done. He dealt with the Galactic suspicion of the Jedi and even after he was personally blamed for his nephew becoming a Sith and being exiled by the Galactic Alliance he still held to his role as leader of the Jedi and his role as a father to Ben Skywalker and continued to fight for peace and against the dark side. And even after his death his Force Ghost was still working to save the Galaxy and help his descendants stay on the right paths.

Don’t tell me this out of character nonsense we saw in TFA is canon cause it’s not.

Some Things About Leia Organa and Her Hair

So I’ve been considering doing a post about this for a while and since there’ve been a lot of discussions about Leia recently I figured ‘why not’?

So, some things about Leia and her hair from a person who is living with hair LONGER than Leia’s is depicted in ROTJ and has been for quite a long time.

Please bare with me while I learn to use this thing.

1. She is inevitably asked by someone if her hair is real every time she tries a new style.

2. As a child she would wear her hair down when she was at home but as she grows (along with her hair) it becomes a less common occurrence because her hair is to much to deal with down. (Exceptions are made for headaches. Sometimes.)

3. On the way to Bespin Han asked her to wear it down and she refused (5 times) until she finally un-braided it all for him to see how long it is. (Han stops asking.)

4. Breha taught Leia to do her hair and Leia keeps some of her pins to tuck into her hair, even once they’re worn out and no longer keep anything in place.

5. She never has enough bobby pins.

6. Or hair ties.

(She asks Chewie to buy her some while on a supply run. He brings back exactly what she asks for and refuses any payment.)
7.On the way to Bespin she teaches Han simple styles and techniques; how to divide hair for a braid, how and where to pin them, what styles are good for what, and, his personal favorite, how to find all of the pins.

8. Hair, on Alderaan is tradition and modesty and necessity. It takes Leia some time to learn this but it takes her even longer to realize that other places don’t share the same customs.

9. A particularly rude Ambassador once inquired as to why she wore her hair “like a common peasant.” She hit him. (She later discovers that the people on his planet only bind their hair if they must work. She never apologizes.)

10. Leia is distraught over Jaina’s refusal to have her hair done and she cries the night Jaina comes home with it chopped short. (She thought she was going to get the chance to pass on the things her mother taught her.)

11. There is a crisis (because there is always a crisis) on some midrim world they happen to be on and a law is passed saying that to leave any hair must be shaved to the skull. Han promises to stay with her until the decree is lifted and he teaches her how to wrap her hair in scarves the way he remembers his mother doing.

12. The Rogues tell her mood by her hair. Han tells the political climate. Luke tells the weather.

13. One time, trying to be helpful, Luke brings her images of various hairstyles from the holonet. Leia is forced to tell him that anything that is pictured with hair shorter than hers will never work like the pictures but agrees to try some anyway.

14. Her hairstyle on Bespin is not something she’s ever seen done before but Han created the beginnings of it one night when she allowed him to braid her hair.

15. The style becomes one of her favorite elegant styles. She wears it on their wedding day.

16. She’s not one for overly adorning her hair but she has a handful of decorative clips, two hair sticks in different styles, a circlet and a diadem, all of which are very simple.

17. Her circlet was created for her when she was born, elegant gold twisting and coiling with one small sapphire set in it. After the war it was thought to be lost. That is, until it turned up, along with jewelry that had been in an exhibit about the designer. They found the diadem there too. It had been her mother’s, and it was quite simple, silver with small diamonds. (Her mother always said it was a day diadem, for formal events before sundown.)

18. After the event with Jaina’s hair Leia says nothing. She sits at her dressing table and does her own hair, leaving the door open for her daughter just in case.

19. Han built her a stool for the ‘fresher on the Falcon so that she can sit in front of the mirror and be at just the right height to do her hair.

20. The Rogues timed her once on doing her hair. She took out two braided buns and turned them into four braids coiling around her head. It took her 20 minutes to do the whole thing. They were impressed.

21. Jaina eventually begins allowing her mother to style her hair again for formal events. It’s quite short but Leia is quite skilled. After Jaina turns 18 Leia allows her to wear the circlet but Jaina rarely agrees, saying she’s not the real Princess.

22. There’s a rumor that Leia can do her hair faster than Han can tear apart, clean and reload his blaster. This is untrue. They tried it once. Han was 11 seconds faster.

23. When her friends get married Leia does their hair. For Winter it was a traditional coronet that looks like a tiara with the right pins. For Mara it was a waterfall of braids that she has only ever replicated for Mara on she and Luke’s 10th anniversary. The list goes on.

24. When Jag proposed Jaina began growing her hair out while trying not to make it seem obvious. The morning of the wedding she waits at her mother’s dressing table until Leia emerges from the ‘fresher. With tears in her eyes, Leia braids the diadem into her daughter’s hair and realizes how much she wished her mother had been there to do this for her.

25. After Bespin Leia allows her hair to become a mess. Finally a kind Alderaani survivor comes and washes and braids Leia’s hair, saying that it won’t do them any good to find Captain Solo if he has no one to come back for.

26. Leia would never cut her hair. She won’t even consider it.

27. Han establishes a rule that if he takes her hair out at night he either has to rebraid it before they go to sleep or he has to help her brush it in the morning. He figures this is a fair rule since he’s usually responsible for the mess it is. 

28. She teaches Jacen how to do hair and he’s always excited when his daughter tells her friends that her dad made the elaborate twists and coils.

29. Breha used time together doing hair as a way to teach her daughter about the galaxy but Leia stopped dreaming of a daughter of her own during the war.

30. Jaina is stubborn and “far to like Han” but she learned far more from her mother than Leia ever thought she did. She always tells her friends that beauty is often seen as a softness and lack of strength but she’s never seen anyone look more beautiful, and still kick butt, than her mother. Being focused on ones hair or make up or clothes isn’t something to be frowned upon, because you never see it coming when they can win a fight in an alley.

(Hoping this makes sense, I have a major headache. (: )

Raising Jedi children, he decided, was like raising Ralltiir tigers–cute as they were when young and much as they might love you, they still grew long, deadly claws. Han would never forget the afternoon Anakin had an hour long, Force-assisted tantrum. Every object in the playroom was shoved or thrown against the wall, leaving the youngster alone in the middle of a bare floor, kicking his heels and pounding his fists.

One mercy was that all the three children were basically good-hearted.

Another was that playing with the Force seemed to make them sleep longer and more deeply. Unfortunately, Anakin and Jacen both had their mother’s stubbornness–neither could be readily compelled to do anything they didn’t want to. And Jaina and Jacen both had a streak of irrepressible mischief, which Leia blamed on Han – both could be regularly counted on to do something you didn’t want them to.

Before the Storm, Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy #1

This is an excellent example of the sort of passage I love in Black Fleet Crisis. I dearly love House Husband/Number One Dad Han Solo in the old 90s EU. In my head, Han loves being a Dad, and he throws himself into being the Dad that he didn’t have himself growing up, and this sort of passage really illustrates this idea. One of the things I’ve enjoyed in this book thus far is Han’s treatment as a capable, if imperfect Father. His worries about his children feel very canon (including the aforementioned worries about Jacen’s lack of physicality), and his concern equally so. He and Leia share perspectives regularly, and it’s a delight to read. This is the sort of thing I literally can never have enough of.

I’m also amused at Han blaming the stubbornness on Leia, as if he has none (although Leia might out-stubborn him, it’s true).
