legend (novel)

4

Entertainment Weekly has details for several Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi books. The new addition: A collection of short stories focusing on inhabitants of Canto Bight, the ritzy casino planet. The authors are Star Wars vet John Jackson Miller and franchise newcomers Saladin Ahmed, Rae Carson, and Mira Grant. It will be on shelves December 5.

We first heard about most of them back at Celebration, but there’s still plenty of mystery. Ken Liu’s The Legends of Luke Skywalker (October 31), which “presents its stories as rumors circulating through the galaxy.” Claudia Gray’s Leia: Princess of Alderaan (September 1) is set when the character is 16, when she “decides to become involved in the fight against the Empire.” We’ll also see plenty of her parents and friends, a boon for fans who want to know more about Alderaan.

Delilah S. Dawson’s Phasma (September 1) will, as we learned in Orlando, give us her origin story, going back to her youth. The book will “show how she got off the planet that she was on initially and came to the First Order and what did she have to do to get there and what will she do to protect her secrets,” Lucasfilm’s Michael Siglain says. “It cuts between the present and the past and shows her as this fearsome warrior on this brutal world that she was on. The First Order comes to that planet, and she sees a great opportunity when they arrive.”

Author and Editor AU

So I’ve been working on this idea for a fic, while ignoring the harder fics that I should be writing. 

Shiro owns Black Lion Publishing and it was a small publishing company until they happened across a science fiction novel, “The Legend of Voltron,” which became a best seller. The author goes by the name Diego Blue, but that’s not his real name and he prefers to keep it that way. 

Keith, meanwhile, has recently been fired from his mechanic job for being too confrontational with the owner, so Shiro took him in as an editor because, you know, what are brothers for (”You have a college degree, Keith. Why were you working there in the first place?” “I liked it, Shiro, until Rolo started stealing my shit.”). Keith, however, loves the book “The Legend of Voltron” and has been pestering Shiro since before he was even hired as an editor to get him in touch with “Mr. Blue,” but Shiro refuses. Diego Blue wants to remain anonymous and it’s none of Keith’s business who he is. 

But Keith keeps pestering him anyway. 

Lance Garcia McClain, meanwhile, had to move out of his apartment because of a black mold problem (“I like this apartment, Pidge!” “It’s a piece of shit, Lance, and we all know you can afford something better anyway.”), so he moves into a complex downtown where he meets his asshole neighbor, Keith Song, who is equal amounts of annoying as he is attractive and irresistible. And seeing as he doesn’t have to work, Lance has plenty of time to sit around in his new apartment and think of all the best ways to get Keith’s attention. Oh, and write the second book in his series that wasn’t supposed to be a series in the first place? He hadn’t even intended to write the first book? Or publish it? So that was a thing. 

Keith, meanwhile–despite finding his new neighbor extremely annoying and constantly having to yell at him about hacking into his wifi–happens to be using Shiro’s computer when he finds the email address for one Mr. Diego Blue. Without telling Shiro, he snags the email and starts messaging Mr. Blue. At first it’s all formal, but Keith finds Mr. Blue extremely easy to talk to and soon they’re emailing all the time. Keith develops quite the crush and his interest, as well as admiration, only intensifies when the manuscript for book 2 finally arrives. 

Thus we find ourselves in a Klance lovesquare with fun things like email messaging, apartment pranks, and inappropriate flirting when Lance finally figures out that his editor’s colleague, who’s been emailing him, is none other than the very Keith Song that lives across the hall. 

Will include Keith with his hair in a ponytail and Lance with glasses and curly hair despite his attempts to straighten it and pretend not to be the nerd he actually is. 

I’m kinda writing the first chapter, but… I don’t know how into it I want to get. I have other fics I should work on, tbh. I mean, does anyone even want to read something like this?

The REAL story of “I am Legend”

This video is The Last Man on Earth starring Vincent Price.  This is the only faithful film adaptation of Richard Matheson’s I am legend.

 Most people don’t know it but “I am legend” was not about zombies or mutants.   The Creatures were old school, traditional vampires.  Warded by symbols of faith and garlic.  And killed via stake through the heart.   The hero learns (at the end) that he had been killing the intelligent race that had replaced humans.  Killing them when they are most vulnerable (in their daytime sleep).  He had become their boogie man. 

That’s where the line “I am legend” comes from, the moment he realized he was the monster in a world of vampires… 

The twist, the meaning, these things have been so distorted that no one would recognize a faithful adaptation of “I am Legend” today, they’d think it’s a stupid vampire knock off version or something ot that effect.  I wish someone was brave enough to try a faithful version again…


Obi-Wan: “Should I take further steps to hide Luke?“

Qui-Gon: “The core of Anakin that resides in Vader grasps that Tatooine is the source of nearly everything that causes him pain. Vader will never set foot on Tatooine, if only out of fear of reawakening Anakin.”

—The Life and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi by Ryder Windham

So basically Vader’s never going to Tatooine because he hates sand so much it would turn him good again
