To the wonderful women who guessed where Star Wars was going
Hello everyone. I know I haven’t been posting much recently and I’d like to explain why.
I had been slaving for months and months, (since June 2016), gathering evidence and writing metas about how I believe kylo Ren found the Kenobi lightsaber and in turn had a vision of Rey when he picked it up. Just like she had a vision of him when she picked up his ancestral blade.
I found countless tweets, visual evidence, audio evidence, photos and themes all backing my theory up.
One day a big YouTube blogger took this theory and put it in his video.
He initially didn’t credit me and he read parts of my meta in his video and passed my theory off as his own. He only decided to credit me once many people complained about it (thanks to those who helped)
His video has generated over 1 million views and he has made god knows how much money off of my hard work. People in his comment section are praising him for discovering the “secret”.
Despite the minuscule and well hidden credit he eventually gave me, sadly the majority will not know where it originated from.
The same blogger is now making money off of the reylo community. Yes he decided to credit people this time but the sad truth is that male fans in his comment section are suddenly only now giving reylo credit. Only now taking it seriously and why? Because a man is talking about reylo.
I think one of the worst comments I saw was: “I never gave reylo credit but now that you have made a video it makes sense, your theories are the bomb!” So despite this blogger clearly stating that it was the women of tumblr who predicted this. It’s still ignored and not appreciated and the credit is still going to him?
We as a community we’re shunned, ridiculed and treated appallingly for a year and we slaved so hard on tumblr with millions of words and metas. We predicted so much accurately and now male youtubers are taking our hard work and jumping on the band wagon because now it’s “safe” to discuss reylo because it seems clear that’s the way the story is going. Now money can be made off of reylo on YouTube. But they are not using their own content. They are taking OUR content and making money. Capitalising of of our hard ass work for the past year or so.
ReyKenobiFiles and myself have a podcast and we are relaunching it. Let’s get female voices heard a little louder. If we have coincidentally mentioned your theories please message us and we’ll add you to the credits!
I’ve noticed a bunch of new followers lately… So I just wanted to say hey there and welcome if you’re new and a big hug to my loyal friends and followers on the interwebs 😙 Keep being awesome and stay high ✌
Much love, Alyssa Sparkles
I came across this amazing millennium falcon cross stitch picture on reddit the other day but there were no links to the pattern and according the original poster, his sister had found the pattern in a cross stitch magazine in 1997! So I created my own pattern, it is not exact and I only used three colors so it doesn’t take into account any intricate shading but it should work :)
If anyone knows where the original pattern came from I would love to credit and link to them but I could not find the source and given the date it might be difficult to find.
The #rebel fleet from the rear. Tried to get all the ships in the frame, but the wall was in the way :) How many types of ships can you spot here? #lego #starwarsfan #starwars #legophotography #lego_hub #legostagram #legostarwars #starwarslego #milleniumfalcon #spaceship – https://www.pinterest.com/pin/340514421815750291/
While I have ample room in my heart for all sorts of geeky wonders, it’s no secret that Star Wars will always be my first love. So after much delaying (it’s weirdly daunting to tackle something you adore so much), I finally turned my attention to the vehicles of the Holy Trinity. So I am amazingly excited to present A Long Time Ago - The vehicles of Star Wars. (Almost) Every identifiable vehicle from the Episodes 4, 5 and 6, lovingly illustrated and shown in order of their appearance in the films. You can pick from the Complete Series, with all three movies, or separate posters for each film. I hope you enjoy.
