“I hit that guy so hard he was impressed with my skill and asked if I needed his services”
“One second everything was fine, and then that GTA fan ran off with my precious baby and some guy’s gun. Please, Corso, he won’t hurt your blaster. At least, a blaster can’t be crashed, but a ship can. I’m so nervous”
“I came here to complete my training, but instead I got into some high school drama, and we’re trying to find out who’s the most popular sith in the Academy. Hey, Vette, I have your vote, right?”
“My whole life has been some hell, but it’s about to change now that I have this big bloodthirsty, grumpy and constantly nostalgic scary guy who eats people. My very first friend”
“Oh yeah, I’m that famous pirate. I do a lot of… pirating… stuff. Oh, you think I’m an impostor? Well, maybe that’s the Red Blade YOU have met was an impostor! I bet he’s jealous I’m prettier than him”
“I left for FIVE minutes, and now everyone is dead because of some dude who has no taste in make-up whatsoever, and the big worm gave the token to some lizard instead of me, what are the odds?”
*O-baby-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn’S amazing jedi space adventures?? Is that not enough reason OK
*Obi-Wan is young and reckless and going way too far and has a passionate sense of justice only equaled by his desire for people to just have better manners darn it
*Qui-Gon is literally the most stubborn human in the galaxy and he gets called out on it ALL THE TIME
*Ladies?? An awesome new female character around every corner. Miners, healers, politicians, mad scientists, serene jedi masters, caustic jedi padawans, gentle jedi initiates, cooks, revolutionaries, mechanics, bounty hunters.
*Obi-Wan has a new little friend on every planet. “I don’t know how to people,” he grumbles as he makes a new friend for life. “Why can’t I be at ease in every situation like Qui-Gon is?” He bemoans, trailing disreputable new bosom bros behind him like a train.
*“The Council likes to be presented with freshly overturned governments more than revolutions in progress,” Qui-Gon blithely assures his dubious apprentice.
*no but really tho they never met an oppressive government they didn’t try to topple
*all the Jedi world building? If you gave ever wondered a thing about old Republic jedi, Jude Watson probably wondered too and wrote an answer
*They are basically printed novel size gen fanfics, so many tropes, so much peril and angst and teamwork and partners being concerned for each other
*made for kids, so the writing is not bad but it’s quite simple you can tear through one of these babies in like an hour or less
*“Not so! I lie!”
*Qui-Gon Jinn holding babies and making faces at small children
*Obi-Wan Kenobi the industrial-sized salt dispenser
*Seriously just read them if you love Obi-Wan you should have read them already if you love Qui-Gon then these books and Liam Neeson are probably why
I do love how the peripheral characters from the movies develop into spectacular characters with rich back-stories and we end up with killer fan art like this piece by @blog-dres13. Would love to know how she got that Sith lightsaber!
By far my most favourite design for asajj ventress. It’s more a traditional Jedi look. Especially enjoying her new hair. And can we all acknowledge the rare use of the yellow lightsaber, which is traditionally reserved for Force Sentinels.
