luke makes a thing

when cassian told jyn “you’re not the only one who lost everything” he was referring to his own tragic backstory, which is that back in the ninth grade at Tatooine High he asked luke to prom and luke said he couldn’t go because his aunt and uncle wouldn’t let him so then cassian didn’t go to prom at all and just stayed in his room the whole night listening to art angels and crying but then the next morning he heard from camie who heard from fixer who heard from windy that luke actually did in fact go to prom and to make things even worse he went with star quarterback biggs darklighter and luke and biggs told everyone there that they were just going as friends but janek sunber says he saw luke and biggs making out WITH TONGUE in the boys’ bathroom so cassian skipped class to go sit on the bleachers behind the school and listen to art angels and cry but he neglected to realize that he was missing the last trigonometry test of the year so he flunked trig and then it was either go to summer school or run away from home and join the rebel alliance

I sometimes wish I’d stayed inside


my mother.

Never to come out. 

Okay but the first thing Yoda does when Luke makes to go to Cloud City is threaten him with “If you go, you’ll single-handedly bring down the rebellion,” and then, when that delays him for like, maybe a day, “you’ll single-handedly make anything that has/will happen to your friends have been in vain.”

As excuses go, they’re flimsy as all get out. And fail to make much of an impression on the poster child for the power of friendship.

But it’s interesting how terrified Yoda (and Obi-Wan maybe) are of losing Luke. Not Luke-the-person, but Luke-the-chance-of defeating-the-Emperor.

(This is the first time I’ve noticed Yoda’s silent gasp when Luke goes “I understand,” and carries on prepping for take-off when Ben says they won’t be able to help him.)

12 things 2015 taught me

january: it’s okay to cut off people from your life. don’t feel guilty about how they’re feeling; you’re the most important person and your wellbeing matters more than anyone’s.

february: be open to new opportunities and say yes to things that you once might’ve said no to. these opportunities might bring the best memories you’ve had up to date. 

march: you can’t please everyone. not everyone needs to agree with you and even like you. speak up and demand respect. you deserve it. 

april: grudges make your heart ache and drain your energy. forgive and let go. there’s no other way to life. move on. 

may: don’t overthink every single thing. no, that text response doesn’t have to be 40 words long. no, you’re not going to end up on the streets because of a failed test. stop feeling so much.

june: comparing yourself to others will only lead to negative actions. appreciate and embrace what you have. no one is perfect and perfectionism is boring. 

july: laughter heals. smile and keep your head up. you will be okay. 

august: experience is not glamorous and it will often hurt. make sure you’re ready to face consequences before you make impulsive decisions. 

september: seeking for help does not make you weak in any way. if anything, it makes you stronger than you were before. 

october: music will hold your hand when no one else will. listen to it as loud as you want wherever you want- who cares if other people can hear it. 

november: skinny does not mean pretty. skinny does not mean everyone’s going to like you. skinny does not mean anything you think it means. fuck beauty standards. 

december: mistakes happen. don’t beat yourself up for them. it’s not the end of the world and something that might seem monumental at one point will not matter in a year’s time.

Oh hey there Calum Hood, I am a huge fan of your tattoos.

I mean, how can Star Wars even compete?

I guess I just like to fix things – make them right.


Do you think Anakin’s natural need to fix mechanical things is some kind of subconscious manifest of his role as Chosen One? You know, the person who is supposed to bring Balance and thus fix whatever it’s wrong with Force?
