Don’t think about the fact that Obi-Wan lost everyone he cared about. Don’t think about the fact that he watched Satine and Qui-Gon die in his arms. Don’t think about the fact that he watched Siri’s ship crash, and watched Padmé’s life run out. Don’t think about the fact that Cody ordered him shot down, and that he never found out if Ahsoka survived. Don’t think about the fact that he and Yoda were the only ones to venture into the Temple after Order 66 and see all his friends and family killed. Don’t think about the fact that he couldn’t bring himself to kill Anakin, but he lost him anyway. Don’t think about the fact that he spent nineteen years in the desert, never being allowed to talk to Luke, and he never got to tell him about his adventures. Don’t think about the fact that he never got to meet Leia or see her grow up. Don’t think about any of those things.

Me throughout Rogue One
  • Me at the start: Cannot wait cannot wait!!
  • Me in the middle: I LOVE EVERYONE I SHIP JYN AND CASSIAN SO HARD FREAKING KISS. I LOVE K-2SO's SASS I LOVE ADORABLE BODHI I LOVE BAZE AND CHIRRUT SO SO MUCH!
  • Me at the end: ..... *can no longer speak English and can only roll around helplessly on the floor while weird noises come from my throat*.....

LIBERIA. Monrovia. June 25, 2003. One of the most influencial weapons in the rebel forces are the 12.7 belt-fed anti-aircraft guns, mounted onto the backs of pick-up trucks. LURD forces advance on the capital during the Siege of Monrovia (2003). Second Liberian Civil War (1999-2003).

I saw Rogue One finally, and now I’m totally back in a full-”force” (heh) Star Wars kick.  Watching Rebels again, gonna rewatch the movies for the thousandth time…might even pick up Battlefront again…

Here’s a quick Sabine sketch while I ponder when I’ll have time to do a real R1 illustration…

Vader is Vader and Anakin is Anakin so you are kind of right to refer to them as two other people but they are the same person, it’s very tricky. But Vader is kind of unrepentant and wants to destroy her, there is nothing else he wants more. Anakin is deep buried inside.”   

A disturbing fact about Star Wars is that the droids are essentially slaves...and even the good guys are perfectly willing to go along with this.

The franchise continually points out to the audience: These aren’t just machines. They’re self-aware, intelligent living beings capable of forming emotional bonds with people and even each other. (It’s a running joke how in love R2D2 and C3P0 are.)

So, um, aren’t they programmed slaves then?

It’s not the like droids themselves are particularly thrilled with the situation either: K-2SO makes a point of saying how he’d rather not help Jyn (he knows it’s suicide) but, well, he has to.  

Reminds me a bit of Battlestar Galactica.
