and now for the audience participation portion: how many times has ben solo been kicked out of day care and what were his most egregious offenses? winners get an art prize. reblog with comment to enter. GO!
Anakin, Luke, and Leia are the three co-pilots of the Jaeger Binary Eclipse, and they’re pretty much the greatest Jaeger team in history (although Han Solo begs to differ).
Padme, Bail Organa, and Mon Mothma are the directors of this entire operation. They direct things on the ground, make final executive decisions in the war room, and also deal with government representatives and bureaucratic red tape.
Obi-Wan used to be Anakin’s co-pilot back in the day, but now he handles ops on the ground because he’s “getting too old for this sort of thing.”
Han and Chewie are the co-pilots of the Jaeger Millennium Falcon (of course).
Lando is the superintendent of the Shatterdome: he keeps everything running smoothly, makes sure the funding can stretch and does grant writing when it can’t, and in general mother hens everyone. (He’s the responsible one.)
Luke and Leia are partnered with their dad not only because they all make an amazing team, but also because Anakin can sometimes have trouble with “chasing the rabbit” (he saw a lot of stuff in the first wave of Kaiju attacks, when he was partnered with Obi-Wan, and he never talks about it but Luke and Leia know, because they’ve seen it in the drift), and they’re better than anyone else at pulling him out of it.
(Obi-Wan may or may not work ops for similar reasons.)
Han and Leia have an ongoing, and very vocal, Kaiju kill competition. Leia is currently winning. (Everyone else in the Shatterdome has an ongoing bet about how long it will take them to officially get together.)
One time Artoo basically hijacked a Jaeger and took Threepio along for the ride. They killed two Kaiju.
IDK what Palpatine’s up to, but he’s probably behind the Kaiju somehow.
yeah obviously this is spoilery so i’ll put everything under the
and yeah no i lied this isn’t sophisticated at all it’s just
me fangirling and screaming, mostly about darth vader
ok here we go
so i just watched tesb the other
day and i realized that during the battle on hoth, luke was rogue
leader and then it goes rogue two, three, and so on. And why is
this? because there was ALREADY A ROGUE ONE
when you realize that prolly
luke and co and rey, poe and finn will look up to the crew of rogue
esp finn- like, bohdi defected
from the empire!! and became a hero!!!
ahh everything was just so
gorgeous: places, planets, ships, music, plot, people (esp that one
rebel dude who looked so Flawless™ in that too -short shot as
rogue 1 was landing on scarif)

YOU COULDNT EVEN LET THE FRIGGIN
*sigh* at least darth vader
also krennic was pretty rad. i
didn’t think he was all that bad. i mean yeah he kills people and
blows up planets… actually ok yeah hes pretty bad now that i think
of it. but i wouldnt turn down having a nice tea with him bc frankly
there are a lot of other characters out there that havent killed or
anything but i would be terrified to be near *cough* heathcliff
confession time: when i saw the
trailers for rogue 1 i was like ‘wow i cant believe they’re
trying to make another 3PO happen‘. but im so glad i was wrong bc
k2 is the best. his sarcasm gives me life
hey did anyone else notice that
when jyn and co were in the hangar on yavin iv someone was calling
over the intercom thingy for general syndulla… i mean, i dont
watch swrebels but i do know about the characters and isnt that

was on the council i think and it was so hilarious bc he was acting
just like anderson XD he was a riot
kinda wish there were more
ladies but who am i to complain: we got SO.MUCH.DIVERSITY.
i wouldve liked more diversity

scottish and aussie ones)

write more another day but for right now i’ll stop
did i mention darth vader tho
also i laughed when he said
‘dont choke on your aspirations’ bc that is so anakin to make a
pun like that but then i was sad because that is anakin
HOLY CANOLI AND FORCE BE PRAISED IT IS //FINALLY DONE
I PRESENT TO YOU THE ONE AND ONLY SKYWALKER HAPPY TRASH FAMILY AND CO. IN PHILTHESTONE’S PRINCE OF EGYPT EXTRAVAGANZA.
So. Basically this happened when I got sick a couple weeks ago, when I went online looking for songs to download WHEREUPON my bleary eyes fell upon the song “when you believe”.
MY FRIENDS, I HAD A REVELATION. Obviously, my already over active imagination, heightened by illness, went into overdrive, and somehow I ended up imagining DETAIL FOR DETAIL a scene in SHTF AU in which AHSOKA starts singing “ when you believe” and then Padme joins in and THINGS GO FROM THERE and obviously Leia and Luke do the small child part and gee, says my brain, what if Anakin only starts singing because of his family and tHEN HAN PUTS LUKE ON HIS SHOULDERS AND AHSOKA STANDS ON THE TABLE AND THEY SINGLE HANDEDLY MOTIVATE THE ENTIRE REBEL ALLIANCE THROUGH SONG
HOW AMAZING WOULD THAT BE, HUH?
So then this happened. And I didn’t draw the whole song, because this is long enough as it is. But I tried. And I apologize for the lined paper and the perhaps poor quality of some of the panels. But.
(You should know that I am very proud of this. And also shed many a tear. Can you believe I’m 18 years old because I can’t.)
re-reading the X-Wing books, my main takeaway from Solo Command is that someone really needs to make Wedge/Han like… a thing.
After all, you get such gems as the following:
“Well, you’re not the only member of the crew who could benefit from some blissful irresponsibility right now. So I’m going to stage an insurrection and seize control of Mon Remonda.”
Solo gave a curt laugh. “Wedge Antilles, mutineer. That I have to see.”
which follows a long, emotionally charged conversation of Han admitting his insecurities about his and Leia’s relationship,
Rogue One was among the pilots returning. Solo breathed a sigh of relief. He had few enough friends. Win or lose, he didn’t want to lose any more in this engagement.
… Han I can’t believe you care this much? and then there’s this whole scene:
Han Solo and Wedge Antilles sat in the cockpit of the Millennium Falsehood, their feet up on the control boards.
“Stand by, Communications.” Solo shut off the cockpit microphone and gave Wedge an accusing look. “You said, when you overflew her X-wing, that you saw no sign she ejected.”
“That’s right.” Wedge stretched lazily. “There was no automated comm signal indicating an ejection.”
“Commander Square Corners himself, showing a streak of duplicity. Lying by omission. I can’t believe it.”
As they walked down the Falsehood’s loading ramp, Solo threw an arm over Wedge’s shoulders. “Corellian to Corellian, you know what the great thing about being a general is?”
“In lots of circumstances, you can pretty much do whatever you want.” With his free hand, Solo reached over and gave Wedge’s hair a thorough mussing.
Wedge batted his hand away. “Hey, stop it.”
and who can forget the scene in Wedge’s Gamble, in which Wedge attempts to counsel Leia about her relationship with Han:
“That’s his nature, though–he’s chaos incarnate.” Wedge smiled. “Han Solo, you have to love him…”
“… or freeze him in carbonite, I know.” Leia stared wistfully off into the distance. “He’s a good man. Even with his quirks and rough edges, I don’t think I can find better in this galaxy. And I’m not really interesting in looking, either, but there are times when I wonder ‘Why him?’”
“If you ever have doubts, serious doubts, come see me. I can give you a dozen reasons to answer that question.”
in which I know what Wedge means, where he could give Leia a dozen reasons why Han is the right guy for her, but honestly it kind of sounds like Wedge has a dozen reasons why one would be in love with Han Solo, at least six of which apply to him personally.
