nineteen twenties

So one of the things I love about watching Star Wars: A New Hope after having watched all the other Star Wars movies is how… well… how normal Luke’s upbringing appears to have been.

It’s not just that he was loved. It’s clear that Breha and Bail Organa loved Leia immensely. But she was a princess functionally from birth, and then became a senator at–what? eighteen, nineteen, twenty? Something like that. She was much loved and much trusted, obviously, but her upbringing must have been… “unusual” would be putting it mildly. As a teenager she was learning statecraft and politics–and deception.

And their mother must have been the same way, queen from such a young age, raised and trained to rule. And their father–loved, yes, deeply, and I have no doubt that his mother did her best to protect Anakin from the worst parts of slavery–but he was still a slave, as was she, and there was only so much they could do.

But Luke! Luke got the gift of a perfectly normal childhood. All the jokes about Luke, the whining about wanting to go to TOSCHE station to pick up some POWER CONVERTERS–the snippy teenagery conversation he has with his uncle about waiting “a whole nother year????”–the shooting womp rats in his T-16 back home–the fact that left to his own devices, at the same age that Leia is deciding THE FATE OF HER PLANET, he’s still playing with model spaceships…..

…they’re all signs that he had a normal childhood. That he’s a normal eighteen, nineteen, twenty, whatever year old. 

I mean, he grew up in a situation where it was completely safe for him to whine to his parent figures. He knew that Lars and Beru wouldn’t make him pay for his “but I wanted to go to TOSCHE STATION” or for his “I want to go to the academy THIS year” or whatever. Unlike basically every other Skywalker ever he grew up without a ton of extra pressure, without a “oh by the way you’re going to be king of [planet]” stuff, without “also you’re the Destined Future of the Jedi.” They didn’t raise a legacy, or a scion–they just raised a child. (In point of fact, that’s why Yoda almost rejects him: he’s too old, and he was raised too normal.)  And since Owen and Beru obviously knew perfectly well who and what he was, that’s actually an astonishing accomplishment. They were delivered an infant who they knew had the approximate destructive power of a nuclear device, and they still raised him as… a kid, a child, a boy who they loved with the same mixture of exasperation and devotion as any parent-figures.

He grew up as a kid, with a gruff but loving uncle and a sweet-tempered aunt, he grew up skeet-shooting womp rats and hanging out with his friends in Anchorhead when he had an excuse to go into town–and it’s clear how safe he feels with them because he does whine and moan and have fits without any apparent worry that he’s going to pay for it later. He whines and moans in the way I did at that age: in perfect confidence that while my parents might temporarily snap at me, they would never hurt me, and they would always love me. And that all they really wanted for me was to grow up safe and happy.

tl;dr: Luke Skywalker: the last of the Jedi(?) but also maybe the first of the Jedi to grow up in a normally functional childhood.

(I also really, really want to see the story in which he grieves his aunt and uncle for more than ten seconds. Perhaps I will write it.)

Jungkook’s Fics Recommendations PT1


Series Pt. 1

Series Part 2


OKAY okay okay but I really really want Season 2 to start with like… a three year time-skip, where Jim returns changed, and finding everyone else changed (and pissed off at him for like all those three years), and when he returns he accidentally (?) releases the Gumm-Gumms from the Darklands, and has to make up with his friends/family while helping (?) defeat the Gumm Gumms. I also want each episode to start and/or end with like a 2-5 minute segment of Jim’s time in the Darklands, starting from when he first arrived, so at the beginning of the season we have no freaking clue what happened to him or what happened there, and by the end of the season we can piece together the events and we’ll know. 

Also i assume there’s no human hair salons in the Darklands and i can only assume he’d give up trying to keep up ‘appearances’ after a while so like… yeah. Long haired Jim? Long haired Jim…


“Saturday, March twenty-fourth, nineteen eighty-four. Shermer High school, Shermer, Illinois. 60062”

Thirty years ago today,
a princess,
a delinquent,
a brain,
a basket-case,
and a jock,
met for detention.

This is a special day.

It is a tragedy, I feel, that people of a different sexual type are caught in a world which shows so little understanding for homosexuals and is so crassly indifferent to the various gradations and variations of gender and their great significance in life.

Emma Goldman - Jewish American Anarcho-Communist in a letter written in 1923

This activist was advocating for various genders and sexual orientations in NINETEEN TWENTY-THREE  and almost a century later you have people still saying there are only two genders determined by biology and that being gay is a sin.

ok but like for real i loved jason so much in batman #16 because he was being so ?? silly??? like it wasnt ooc or anything it was just… Jason being jason. It wasnt the vigilante, or the fallen soldier, or the black sheep of the family or any of that.. it was just nineteen/twenty y/o jason peter todd eating fries named after the joker and not caring about it  bc they taste good and even joking about his death in an.. almost organic waybothering his little brother and then said brother taking revenge on him by mocking his hairline… it was so ridiculous and silly and something we never see anywhere?? and i loved it so much… please…

A Shocking Goodbye

(For context, playing in FLGS and one beloved worker’s last day(called N). Said worker would come over once a session and roll a d20 to see if lightning struck in a relevant way. Hasn’t happened yet. Frank is the recurring name of NPCs with a generally short life span.)

Frank: I’m the luckiest man alive! Unless one of you throw me off this cliff or I get struck by lightning right now, there’s no chance of me dying! Especially not b-.

Player A: Call N over.

DM: Why…?

Player B: Oh god, you said lightning!

Player A: Yeah, he’s leaving and this will be the best call him over!

DM calls over N and has him roll with advantage to determine lightning.
And then a Twenty.

Frank is nearly destroyed by lightning, N is happy, the party does of laughter. The party favored soul finally has the chance to heal someone. Good times were had.
