Kylo Ren: “I feel it again… The pull to the light”

Interesting addition to these thoughts:

The one to get Vader to take off his mask was Luke - who initially saw him as an enemy, but through love was able to help him find redemption and the Light.

The one in TFA to get Kylo Ren to take off his mask was Rey - who now sees him as her enemy.

Now… I wonder… will she just kill this guy off without a second thought? Or are we more likely to see the Star Wars themes of love, redemption, hope, and forgiveness?

I’m going to bet on the latter, personally.

Luke (family - his son) brought Anakin back from Vader - and the one who always knew there was still light in him was Padme (the woman he loved).

Rey will help bring Ben back from Kylo. Leia (family - his mother; he, grandson of Vader/Anakin), knows there is still light in him. And the one who will help bring him back…? Well, wouldn’t it be poetic if it was the woman he falls in love with?

Italics = Korean

“Are you serious?!” I yelled, feeling myself getting annoyed as my dad told me the news. Minutes ago, my dad had surprised me with news that 2 exchange students were coming from South Korea.

My dad smiled sheepishly,“Sorry kiddo, I already promised my friend back in Busan that I’d take care of them.”

Sighing I asked, my brain still not able to process what was going on,“When are they coming?”

Looking at me, he said as he glanced down at his watch,“Hmmm maybe in 4 more hours, and we’re leaving in 30 minutes to go pick them up at the airport.”

“WHAT!” I yelled, throwing my hands up in the air. Two boys from another country are coming to stay at my house and go to school with me and I didn’t even know about it till now and they’re going to be here in 4 hours?!?!

“DAD!!!” I groaned as I ran to my room, cleaning everything in sight as I rushed to get ready. Running to the bathroom, I quickly took a shower, washing my hair and drying it twice as fast as I usually do. Putting on some basic makeup, I ran over to my closet in my towel flipping through my clothes, as if I literally had nothing to wear.

Finally slipping on some comfortable jeans and a jacket, I rushed back to the living room, panting,“ I’m ready.”

Looking up from his phone, he smiled and said,“ Alright then let’s go.”


During the entire car ride to the airport, I bombarded my dad with questions about them, just to be answered with a bunch of “I don’t knows” or “Just ask them”.

Glaring at him, I exclaimed,“ So we’re literally inviting two random boys to our house?!”

My dad shook his head and chuckled,“Okay okay. All I know is that they’re names are Park Jimin and Jeon Jungkook and that they’re both students of a music and arts high school and they’re both from Busan with very limited knowledge of english-”

Jeon Jungkook & Park Jimin.

--All I Need

            Bail Organa sighed heavily, and massaged his temples tiredly. It had been at least thirty-six standard hours since he had last slept, possibly longer—in the flurry of frantic activity after the birth of the twins, Padmé’s death, and the rushed flight from Polis Massa, keeping careful record of the last time he had slept had not been at the top of his priority list—and he was beginning to truly feel the effects of the long hours awake. Closing his eyes, the senator allowed both of his hands to fall to the desktop with a quiet thud, his chin drooping to rest on his chest.

            His exhaustion ran deeper than mere lack of sleep, however. The last week had been one terrible, horrifying nightmare—and Bail knew it was only the beginning of the darkness. The future stretched out before them, and for the first time, Bail found that he could not see how the next day, the next week, the next month would be shaped. The dance of politics that had wielded the galaxy, shaping and molding, was no more. The puppeteer’s strings had been cut. Now there was only a twisting, confusing mass of tangled knots and empty, fluttering strings. Now there was a new puppet master, and all the rules had changed.

            So much is lost, he thought despairingly. Amidala. The Jedi. The Republic. And there would be more death in the days to come. More sorrow. More tragedy. More fire and blood and the shattering of hope. How did it come to this? How did we fall so far, so quickly?

            “Not so quickly,” a quiet voice whispered in his thoughts. “The first cracks were visible years ago, the rot growing right beneath your nose. But none of saw it; all of you were blind. Even you. Especially you.”

kat, riddle me this, a character which is a kickass scary princess who wears her hair in buns and her name has four letters. am i talking about mito or leira? what i mean her is star wars au in which mito is leia. it's meant to be! or now that I think about it, tobirama as leia and madara as han(all that flailing!), with hashirama as luke works really well too

Mito-Leia is the best thing ever, omg. Hashirama is just as much of a dork as Han, if we wanted to keep the dynamics, though…that might leave Madara as Chewbacca. Oh god. 

anonymous asked:

why is it ok for leia to have a bf pre-han but not ok for han to have a gf before leia? why is emilia clarke's character getting hate before we even know if she's han's gf or not but that kier guy is being well received?

Sexism, that’s why! To be clear, I don’t ship Han and Leia with anyone but each other. What I don’t like is the possibility of Emilia being Han’s first love or something - as in, a serious thing. Because so far she has a lot of similarities with Leia (height, complexion, coloring, apparently she’s a big personality) and it might feel as if Leia is just second best for Han, later. I hope that’s not the case tho!

Han and Leia Appreciation Week Day 7 Free write Angsty Fluff

I’m doing a major rewrite of the first chapter of my AU that I’ve been posting all week, so this post as with yesterday’s is brand new material, written this morning.  This post immediately follows Day 6′s Kira’s Origin Story.  It’s still angsty, but it trending out of angst toward the end.  


“So what’s the plan?”  Han spoke rounding the bantha leather sofa and handing her a glass of wine from the stash from Aldera he kept for her on the Falcon.

“I have no idea.”  She spoke watching him sit down next to her.  

“Do you know anything about raising a child?”  He looked down the hall where Kira slept in Fane’s room, in Fane’s bed wearing Fane’s footy pajamas.  The blue ones with the doggy in the flight suit.  He cleared his throat and looked at Leia trying to focus on what she was saying.  

“Hmm mmm.”  She spoke sipping her wine.  “I never wanted children Han.  I spent most of my own childhood afraid that my parents were going to give me back or try to marry me off to so fancy, vapid prince.” 

“I figured fancy, vapid princes were your sort of thing.”  He half shrugged and raised his eyebrows just thankful for a joke he could use to remember put his smuggler Han Solo mask back on cover up husband and father Han Solo.  Leia didn’t know him yet and he figured it was best just to stay the course and keep his mask on for a little while longer.  

She slapped his shoulder.  “Really?  After two years and all of our late night talks when I can’t get back to sleep and that’s what you think of me?”  

“Hey.”  He rubbed his arm still not quite back to himself.  “Easy your highness, I bruise.”  

She smiled at him.  “No, the last thing I want is some jackass who doesn’t know how to handle himself in a fire fight, because that’s what you’re going to get with me… a fire fight.”  

He nodded and watched her watch the fire she’d hand built in the fire place.  “Where’d you learn to do that.”  He gestured vaguely to the fireplace.  

“I used to run away a lot and hide in the woods.  After the last time papa decided to let me spend summers out there.”  She spoke warming her wine in her hands.  So, I taught myself how to fend for myself in the wild.”  

“That’s why you’re such a good shot.”  He spoke watching the fire reflect in her eyes as she spoke.  

She nodded.  

“Why’d you run away so much?  Figured you had pretty easy as a princess.”  

“I’m not good at the princess part, Senator sure, mercenary, spy?  Yeah, princess.”  She shook her head.  “I’m just not polished enough.  It’s like I can’t sit still for too long.”  

He eyed her picking at her thumb as she spoke and reached over lacing her fingers with his.  “You’re hard on your hands.”  

She nodded.  “It helps.”  

“Helps with what?”  He set down his wine and took her hand in both of his.  

She shook her head slowly and sighed.  “Sometimes I just feel so… I don’t know.”  She spoke deliberately like she were trying to decipher a complex code.  “Like I’m made of this big ball of tangled wire and it pokes and it heats up and burns.  And I can feel things, people, emotions…”

“Like Kira?”  

She nodded.  “And sometimes it’s all just too much.”  

He took her wine out of her hand and set it down.  “You know, I’m pretty good in a fire fight.”  He spoke gently turning back to her.  “And I ain’t no vapid prince.”  He spoke cupping her face.  He watched her close her eyes and lean into his hand as he stroked her cheek with his thumb.  

“But you’re leaving.”  She spoke thickly.  “Remember?”  

“I don’t want to.”  He spoke quietly.  

She opened her eyes and met his gaze.  “Stay.”  

He sighed pressing his forehead against hers.  “That bounty hunter almost killed you.”  

“And I have an execute only order on my head as well.”  She shrugged.  

“Leia.”  He sat back.  “My wife and daughter were killed five years ago because I wasn’t there to protect them.”  

“If you’d been there you’d have been killed with them.”  She spoke examining the callouses on his hands.  

“I’d’ve seen it.”  He spoke firmly.  “I’m a pretty vigilant guy.”  

“Yeah, now.”  She looked up at him.  “You’re a vigilant guy now.”  

He shook his head dismissively.  “Listen to me.”  He stroked her cheek.  “I can’t take any chances with this.  I can’t keep putting you at risk.  I can’t go through that again.”  

“What if we neutralize the Hutts on Tatooine, no syndicate, no debt, no bounty.”  She spoke simply.  

  He sighed.  “You want to start a war with the Hutts?”  

“We’re at war with everyone else.”  She shrugged.  

He shook his head.  “Lei…”

She took his hand in both of hers.  “I’ll go with you, as a representative of the Rebel Alliance and…”

“He’ll have you dressed in an iron bikini and strapped to his throne.”  He sat back against the sofa.  

She sighed.  


She looked at him, looked into those deep hazel puppy-dog eyes.  He looked so vulnerable and so open. Gods, he looked like he loved her.  

“Can we just have now?  Can we stop talking about me leaving and have some time without everything else.”  

She shook her head.  “It’s going to hurt.”  

“Leia.”  He spoke spoke gently.  “Sometimes life hurts.”  He pulled her into his arms.  “But sometimes if you let it, life can feel really good.”  He kissed her temple.  “Can we just have some good?”  Gods, he felt so good.  She had difficulty thinking when he was this close.  “Come on Leia, you can let yourself have a little good.  All the bad you’ve had, you deserve a little good.”    

She looked at him.  “Okay hotshot.”  

He smiled at her.  

“But, I’m not just going to go to bed with you.”  She spoke drawing a line in the sand.  

“No.”  He kissed the bridge of her nose.  “Of course not your highnessness, you’re a princess.”  He kissed her lightly at first.  “Thought I’d at least make you dinner first.”  He joked letting the kiss deepen.

The Saga of Star Wars posts are amazing! I really enjoyed reading them. Lots of food for thought.

Thank you! I’m glad you like. :)

I’m still hoping to write a much fuller saga summary eventually, but for now, here are some more tidbits of characterization:

  • Luke and Leia’s stories both begin with a burning. Luke’s is a straight up classic saga origin story: he’s the only survivor of the burning of his farm.
  • Leia’s, though… Leia’s is more intense than anything we see in saga literature, since her entire region burns, and she’s the only survivor.
  • This means that both of them are primed for revenge narratives.
  • Also, Tarkin like Palpatine is a sorcerer. Icelandic magic often functions as basically an intensifier, taking natural actions and phenomena up to 11. So Palpatine’s men can burn Luke’s farm, but the burning of Leia’s entire region definitely implies the presence of dark magic.
  • Instead of destroying the Death Star, then, the main objective of the fourth part of the Saga of Star Wars is to defeat and kill the sorcerer Tarkin, which means fighting through plenty of magic, summoned storms and the like.
  • Obi-Wan is also skilled in the magic arts. His nickname is Obi-Wan the Sly.
  • Anakin is definitely a berserk. Uncontrollable rages that frequently come at inconvenient times and leave him weakened and disoriented afterwards, sometimes not even fully aware of what he did during the berserk fit? Yeah. That’s pretty much canon.
  • Palpatine began his career as a lawyer and maneuvered his way into the position of Law Speaker, and from there declared himself King of Iceland. (Yeah. King. Of Iceland. Those of you who know your sagas and saga attitudes can guess how well that’s gonna go over.)
  • Luke grows up knowing he’s the son of a slave and the grandson of a slave woman (and unlike Olaf Peacock in the sagas, his slave grandmother didn’t conveniently turn out to be a stolen princess). So he’s probably not at all shy about defending his family and his family honor to all comers.
  • Leia, on the other hand, is fostered by the most prominent family in the Alderaan region. So it causes a bit of a scandal when she takes up with Han Lonewalker, a man of unknown family and far from wealthy.
  • (Ironically, this is very similar to the scandal that surrounded her birth parents.)
  • People are horrified when Leia announces her plans to marry Han, but by that point she and Luke have learned about their birth parents. So Leia scathingly tells everyone, “It’s well-known, now, that my father’s mother was a slave woman, so you ought to account this a good match.”
  • (Everyone is too terrified of her to comment further.)

I decided to reread NHI when I saw that you talked about music as your inspiration a lot when you were writing. I notice all the songs now ever more and it really enriches your already amazing piece! I can't wait to read more in that world. NHI han and leia are just the best ❤️❤️

Hi anon! I am honored by your reread and by your writing to me here. Music gives so much comfort, transcendence, hope and inspiration to real life that I can’t imagine any life, even fictional ones, without it. Sometimes that’s why I like listening to satellite radio while I drive or putting my large collection on shuffle; being surprised with joy when just the right song comes on is such an amazing feeling, right? (On the other hand sometimes you get “Love Shack” 40 times on every station, and everyone knows my feelings on “Hotel California.”)

I’ve got a lot more NHI Leia and Han in the pipeline. I’m never gonna leave those two. Grace Solo has to have her first serious, uh, solo performance! Plus I have a lot of stored asks in that universe so anyone who’s asked, I have not forgotten you or ignored you, I’m just slow. I so appreciate your interest and support.

And I appreciate you, too, anon! 

everyone thinks that sirius black’s favorite star wars character would be han but that is total bullshit because he is leia fucking organa’s number one fan and when given the choice on halloween, YES, he dressed as leia and he loved every second of it, and no, he feels no shame in any of this and will in fact be prepared with an explanation longer and better cited than any essay he has ever written about why leia is the best character not just in the franchise but ever, and how one day, by merlin’s beard, he was gonna tell carrie fisher just how badass she was and she would sign his leia action figure, and all would be right in the world


No general now, Leia took the young girl’s face in her hands. Though brokenhearted at the deaths of Han and so many brave pilots, Leia was grateful for the deliverance of the Resistance. In spite of the presence of the crowd that was looking on, the two women embraced without embarrassment or hesitation. Then, with tears falling, they moved inside.

anonymous asked:

Got any AU headcanons if Anakin didn't turn to the darkside and he and Padme raised Luke and Leia?


The first thing I have to say is that in AUs where Anakin doesn’t fall he starts the process of crashing back into himself in the Jedi Temple, before slaughtering a bunch of children. He can’t do it and attacks his clone troopers. Order 66 still happens, but because Anakin fights Palpatine’s influence so much he manages to fling his mind out to the Jedi in the field and it saves some of their lives. He saves a lot of the younglings and padawans in the Temple and barricades the place thoroughly.

The Holonet goes dark and all communications off planet go dark with it. Padme, heavily pregnant and on edge because she can almost taste that something is terribly wrong, takes C3PO and leaves her apartment to see Bail Organa. It saves her life and the lives of the twins because Palpatine orders her entire building to be raised to the ground in an effort to get control of Anakin again. She’s halfway to Bail’s office when she sees the fire and thinks, half in shock, about the fact that one of Anakin’s shirts is still under her pillow and now she can’t return it. 

Then she changes directions and heads for the Jedi Temple. She doesn’t know, exactly, that Anakin is there but she knows he’ll return there eventually and she’ll be safe. She thinks about Anakin thrashing in his sleep and telling her that he’ll make sure she won’t die, that he’ll do anything to protect her, to save her. The Temple is surrounded by fire, smoke, and armed clone troopers who take one look at her and open fire. C3PO gets shot multiple times in her place and eventually goes down in a hail of blaster fire as Padme runs and dodges as best she can. She gets hit in the shoulder and the back of the leg and falls right into the fire. Instead of burning her, it rises up around her and pulls her into the Temple, somehow.

I really wanted a NYE episode this year. This is how I saw one going down. Pure fluff.

“So who all’s coming to my New Years Eve party?” Stuart asks the guys as they thumb through comic books. They all look at each other and grimace before Sheldon answers.

“I don’t believe any of us will be attending your shinding’.”

“Not even you Raj?” Stuart asks desperately and he shakes his head.

“Sorry dude.”

“Come on guys! It has been like four years since you came to tbe comic book store for new years eve.” Stuart begs.

“Exactly.” Howard tells him. “And in that time we have all gotten girlfriends or got married.” He says shrugging his shoulders.

“So bring them too! The more the merrier! The last time you brought a girl you won first place in the costume contest.”

“That’s another thing.” Sheldon says. “Since winning top prize the thrill of competition is gone.”

“So how about instead of a group costume contest I make a bunch of other categories and best costume of the night wins top prize?”

“Interesting.” Sheldon says is interest piqued.

“The girls are not going to go for it.” Leonard tells him raising his eyebrows.

“Speaking of the girls… How do I know, that if I bring Amy here I can trust you to keep your hands to yourself?” Sheldon asks him raising an eyebrow. “I am told you tried to pitch woo to her on several occasions during our break up.” Sheldon says looking at him menacingly and Stuart throws his hands up.

“You guys were broken up! I would never hit on Amy knowing she was yours.”

“I still don’t know.” He says looking at him skeptically.

“Yeah Stuart, I just don’t think we are going to be able to convince the girls to spend new year’s eve in a comic book store.” Leonard says.

“I know it’s just this year has been long and lonely for me. What with Debbie dying and being kicked out of the house we shared…” Stuart starts hanging his head

“First of all Debbie was my mom! And you lived in our house for long time!” Howard begins but Howard stops him.

“Emily might go for it she likes cosplay. Tell me Stuart is there a theme?” Raj asks.

“Yes! This the best part keeping with the trends… This years theme is Star Wars!”

“Oooo!” Sheldon says excitedly. “The original movies? The prequels? The Force Awakens? Yes to all!!!”

“All genres no holds barred.” Stuart tells them. “Though I am surprised to hear you so excited Sheldon.”

“Why it’s a well known fact that I am a fan of Star Wars.” Sheldon says confused.

“It’s just that I know you gave up your opening night ticket so I thought that maybe you weren’t as big of a fan anymore.” Stuart says trying to get him back for his earlier dig about being rejected by Amy.

“Oh that, well it was Amy’s birthday.”

“Still birthday’s coming once a year and you have been waiting ten years for the new Star Wars.” Stuart says.

“I decided instead of seeing Star Wars on opening night. My time would be better spent having coitus with my girlfriend.” he tells Stuart matter of factly. “From what I recall you enjoyed your night doing neither. Good day Stuart, I will ask Amy about attending your party.” Sheldon says turning on his heel and walking out of the shop.

“So he and Amy finally…” Stuart asks the other guys making a gesture with his hands.

“Yep.” Leonard says smirking at Stuart.

“No wonder he skipped the premiere.” Stuart says dreamily. “I would forgo the rest of the franchise for a chance with her.”

“You might want to keep that to yourself.” Leonard tells him.


“I can’t believe you convinced me to go to this dumb party.” Amy gripes as she adjusts the sleeves on her Princess Leia costume.

“I can’t believe you convinced me to go as Han Solo.” Sheldon says adjusting his vest in the mirror.

“I can’t believe you had a Princess Leia costume at the ready.” She tells him smiling. Even though she did not want to go to the party she has to admit they look great together.

“You never know who the odd one out will be at Comic-Con who has to go as Leia.”

“At least it is not the gold bikini.” Amy says as they walk out the door of Sheldon’s bedroom.

“Are you sure? I could buy you one.” He tells her winking at her.

“Quite sure, I don’t have the… Ahem… Assets to pull of that one.” Amy says as they walk into the empty living room.

“I beg to differ.” Sheldon tells her pulling her into a kiss he had been resisting giving her since seeing her dressed as Leia.

“Oh get a room!” Penny yells at them before their lips connect. “Don’t do that in front of your mother! “ Penny says pointing her gun at them dressed as Padme’ from Attack of the Clones.

“Ha ha.” Sheldon says stepping away from her.

“That’s a good son-in-law.” Leonard jokes as he walks in dressed as Anakin. “Okay family let’s go we are meeting the rest of the gang at the comic book shop.

When the get to the comic book store the party appears to be in full swing. Sheldon looks around and groans loudly and rolls his eyes.

“What’s wrong?” Amy asks.

“Look at how many Leia and Han’s there are here! I told you we should have been BB-8 and R2-D2!”

“And I told you I was not going dressed as an orange ball or a space trash can.” Amy hisses at him.

“Space trash can! Woman!” He hisses back.

“Fighting already?” Stuart says appearing beside them dressed as Obi Wan Kenobi. “Did someone say help me Obi Wan you’re my only hope?” He asks raising his eyebrows at Amy who rolls her eyes.

“Get lost you…you…nerf herder!” Amy tells him and Stuart and Sheldon are taken aback.

“Geez! Someone Can’t take a joke.” Stuart says walking away.

“Did you just use a Star Wars reference to insult Stuart?” He asks looking down at her intently.

“I did.” Amy says excited and just as Sheldon leans down to kiss her they are interrupted by Bernadette’s high pitch squeal.

“You guys look adorable!” She yells hugging Amy around the neck.

“So do you guys!” Amy tells her Howard and Bernadette are dressed as ewoks

“This is humiliating.” Howard gripes crossing his furry arms.

“Why? The Ewoks are the most adorable Star Wars characters.” Bernadette tells him.

“That’s just it I don’t want to be adorable I want to be badass!” He says.

“Excuse me! The Ewoks helped take down the empire while looking adorable in the process.” Bernadette tells him.

“She has a point Howard.” Leonard tells him. “Who better to be Ewoks than tbe most tiny adorable couple we know.”

“Are Emily and Raj not coming?” Penny asks bored of the subject.

“We’re here.” A Kylo Ren says behind Bernadette pulling of its mask to reveal long red hair.

“I can’t believe nobody dressed as Luke in our group! I don’t even get to say my best line.” Raj says pulling off his mask.

“So you guys are grandfather and grandson… Neat…” Penny says tilting her head.

“I only wanted to be a sith.” Emily says putting her mask back on and walking away.

“Ookkkayyy.” Penny says through her teeth drinking her drink.

The rest of the night is fun. More fun tban the girls thought New Year’s eve in a comic book store would be. Even if Sheldon is disappointed that his and Amy’s costume did not win top prize just best Han and Leia.

“Its not fair! Howard and Bernadette’s stupid Ewok’s won… I told you…”

“If you say we should have been two robots so help me. Besides think of it this way. They were the only Ewoks so they won top prize. However we won best Han and Leia out of how many other couples?”

“Only because you were the only actual female Leia.” He sniffs.

“Exactly! When you used to come to these things did you ever think you would be the one with an actual girl on your arm?” She asks him as tbe countdown begins.”

“Are you saying you are the prize?” He asks her puzzled.


“You’re right.” He tells her as the count hits one and he kisses her. Kissing her long after the other couples break apart to celebrate the new year. “Sorry I’ve been wanting to do that all night.” He tells her when he breaks away.

“So have I” Amy admits staring back up into his face.

“How about a hug to ring in the new year?” Stuart asks Amy walking up to them but She,din wraps her up in another passionate embrace blocking Stuart out.


So could you imagine if Kylo joins the dark side but on the condition he gets to call his mum all the time. 

(I made this bc I am team #leia-deserves-better)

But like only about casual things, Hux is often in the room just sighing. (He ends up becoming fond of Leia too though bc excuse me she#s a bamf BUT to bad she hates him for taking her bby away)


“Mum, I met this girl today. I fucked up pretty bad but I think I like her”

“Did you do what I told you to do when you like someone”

“No mum, not yet I”

“Look I made you check Hux, but you gotta check her too”

“Okay muuuuuuum”

“ So what are you gonna do”

“A background check”

“And why?”


“Because you never know who you’re related to”
