Fan Art Friday! Industrial Display

First Fan Art Friday of 2019! Always exciting. 🙂 I can't believe we're still doing this 3 years later; it's really quite amazing. What's also amazing is this is a perfect example of how two people can completely interpret art differently.

Why TPM is Important, Again

I have a bone to pick with Rod Hilton, the creator of the Machete Order. If you cut out TPM from the order, people will ALWAYS have questions about Anakin's past.

parents took me to a friend’s house for – who knows – a bbq/potluck/party/whatever-it-was

Emasculating Poe

I was wandering the internet the other day and stumbled upon a section of fans, mostly male, who were furious over Vice Admiral Holdo's treatment of Poe. Namely, that she didn't tell him her plans for escaping the First Order and that she "belittled" him and "emasculated" him. Which made me wonder - if the … Continue reading Emasculating Poe
