    I had to go look up “Young Skywalker”, and I about died. 😂 Obviously, he’s a Star Wars fan too! 😂

      YUSSSSS that’s literally my favorite “get a laugh” song now!!! He’s my favorite artist (well, one of. . .) and so realizing about a YEAR AFTER I starting listening to his stuff that he HAD A STAR WARS SONGGG — it’s just so EPIC! Hehe, I understand Switchfoot has one too, and someone else in the CCM community that I can’t remember (and when I do I’m gonna be like “how did I forget THAT?”) too. I was in love with it at the “sunny-side up” bit. Trust an artist of any form to make such a series event a positively hysterical line. . . XP

        I wanted to let you know that I had a lady in the fandom make a patch (like for a jacket) from The Elven Padawan girl you drew for me, and I’m planning to put it on a jacket along with all my other pins and patches (I’ve finally started my collection, lol!)
        Anyway, just thought you’d be interested in that. She did a great job with it, it looks super cool!! And if you ever happen to want a patch for any character (you can commission her to do literally anyone from SW!), you should totally check out her etsy shop!! =D

        Oi, cool! I’ve been planning to start a pin collection, (as soon as I get a denim jacket!) and am looking for pins! Is it Squadron Goals, by any chance? I’ve been obsessed with her Sabi and SW girls pins for a few days now X3

        No, it’s actually this one: https://www.etsy.com/listing/601846751/custom-star-wars-applique-quilted-patch?ref=listing_published_alert They’re not like the usual patches you see, they’re applique style, and pretty big (9 inches across, I think? I’m planning on putting it on the back on my jacket, as soon as I find a good one.)
        BUT I LOVE Squadron Goals’s pins, too!! I wanna get all the ones she has for all the SW girls!! Especially the Hera, Sabine, and Ahsoka ones!! I wish she would get the Jyn ones back in stock sometime, I love Jyn and there’s not nearly enough merch for her out there…

        OIIIIII I ADORE THAT ONEEEE The Sabi and lothies ones she has are so cute! ❤ I might get a Dave-the-wolf one. . . hmm. . . XD
        Jyn is so sweet! She reminds me of Sabi in some ways (one fighting skills ;D), only rather passive in some ways, and definitely competes with her in stubbornness!

        Yessss!!! I thought I wouldn’t care for Jyn a ton when I first saw her, and I think even after I first saw R1 I didn’t absolutely *love* her. I mean, I really really liked her, but I guess I just wasn’t a huge fangirl for her yet. But I really like her so much more now that I’ve given it some time. It’s kinda weird how that works, but that’s the way it tends to go for me; I like things more as time goes on, and don’t tend to jump right at something as soon as I’m introduced to it (it was that way with Rebels for me, too.)
        And what about the FoD with her and Sabine?!! I still have a hard time believing that happened in canon! =D =D

        Same for me — it was well into S3 before I decided that Rebels was absolutely the best!!! Plus, R1 was so stand-alone that it almost didn’t feel like SW for me. . . it’s taken some time to decide that I love it. AI I KNOWWWW THAT WAS SO GREAT!!! They’d get along well, methinks. . . *sigh*

        Yes!! I wish there was something where Hera and Jyn had met, I would love that so much!!! I think that could be a very interesting pair-up, especially because when I see it in my mind, Hera is trying to mother Jyn like she does everyone in her awesome way, but Jyn is not really having it. It sounds weird, but I think it would be awesome to see. XD

        Oh, and do you know anything about Iden Versio?? She’s an amazing fairly-new SW girl that I really love and wish we had more about!! =D

        Ayuh. . . that would be so cuwte!!! I can see Jyn like pushing her away (literally) and strutting off to stand beside someone tall and imposing and being like “I tough girl, don’t baby *me*” XP
        I HAVE! Well, honestly, I know her name and that one of her friends knows where Lothal is. . . and that’s all. . . but she’s so neat! I’d love to get my hands on those Inferno Squad books!

        Ahh, I can actually see that happening between them as kids now… This is such a funny “thought scene”… XD

        Ok, so cool!! Most of her story is in the Battlefront II story mode, which I personally think is awesome (even though some people are determined to hate on it; not that I know much about video games or anything, and I don’t even play the online multiplayer mode, I just love the storyline 😛 ) Anyway though, I really love her and wish more people knew about her! When I first started seeing the info about Battlefront II and the trailers and such, I thought I wasn’t going to like her at all. They were marketing her as being something completely different than what she really was in the actual story. Which I’m happy of now because it was a really nice surprise to find out I was wrong! =D But anyway, she’s just so cool, and I would love to cosplay her sometime, except for the fact that I don’t look anything like her.

        Meeeppp. . . I actually just wrote something like that XD After I clean it up it’ll likely get posted with some other random shorts and such. . .
        Something I REALLY want to play XD I’ve heard it’s really fun, but I don’t play video games much. Is this just me, or did I hear that she (and a friend) defected from the Imps?
        Hehe, I’ll have to look her up then, she sounds pretty neat! (Ai, but when has that ever stopped a fangirl! Go for it! :D)

        Oooh, can’t wait to see it!! ;D
        I don’t play video games much myself, but I made an exception for this. And yes, you’re right! Iden Version and Del Meeko switched sides shortly after the Battle of Endor! Though that is a major spoiler, so I won’t give any more details unless you expressly ask for them…
        Maybe I will actually try it out. I’d rather not sew the whole thing myself, I feel like it would be easier/less expensive to try to buy some of the pieces pre-made, even if I do have to do a few alterations myself… it’s pretty much a basic X-Wing pilot uniform, but she wears the top rolled down with the sleeves tied around her waist like a jacket, and a grey shirt underneath (that’s the version I wanna do, anyway; I’ve seen several others doing her Imp outfit, but no one seems even interested in her Rebel one, even though I think it’s an awesome variation on the traditional Rebel X-Wing pilot!) I certainly don’t have her nationality, but if I got the hair right and worked on the makeup, I could probably make it look at least recognizable…

        Spoilers is okay by me — probably won’t ever play it until it’s like ancient SW history. . . hehe, like the biggest spoiler of the entire game will be equal to something like DARTH VADER IS LUKE’S FATHER!!! I hadn’t even heard that she had a rebel outfit!!! *flop* And I call meself a fangirl. . . it sounds cool tho, a little like the “Heir to the Empire” Luke action figure I have. And YUSSSS, try to get as much as you can pre-made. . . I’m still trying to get Sab’s shirt to work — it is SO ridiculously crazy! But so worth it, too. . .

        OH AND HAVE YOU SEEEEN???? They’ve finally announced the new animated series!!! It’s called “Resistance,” it’s pre-TFA, about a Resistance pilot — AND I’M ALMOST SURE SAB AND JACEN WILL BE IN IT!!!! Oh yeah and it’s anime. . . that’ll be neat. . .

        Okie-day, then!! I’ll just say that her conversion over to the Rebellion is awesome! It helps you understand that, like with Kallus and Bodhi, not everyone in the Empire is pure evil. A lot of them are just doing their job, thinking their on the right side. It’s when they realize just how bad the Empire is and are faced with needing to make a decision about where they’re going to go from there that who they truly are comes out. =D
        Also, Del Meeko is *awesome*. He’s just such a great character!! He’s got such a big heart, I don’t even get how he was ever with the Empire to begin with. I was so scared for him throughout the gameplay, I just knew that he wasn’t gonna make it out! And he’s a believer in the Force, too! He started believing in the Force and the Jedi when he and Luke ended up stuck on a planet infested with bugs together and had to help each other survive it (this was shortly after ROTJ). He’s just so cool, and he and Iden compliment each other amazingly. 🙂

        AND YES, I SEEN!!! I was at Chemistry class for the entire morning, but I saw when I got home, and I got so excited!! I never expected to get the next series so soon!! I think, in the past, I would’ve been annoyed about them going with an anime-type look for a SW show, but I’m actually really interested to see what they do with it. My sis and I were talking about it, and we agreed that we’re done hating on SW before we even give the new stuff a chance. I mean, of course, there’s some stuff that we just couldn’t go with if they ever chose to do so (I’m always praying they’ll never go that direction, but it’s something I do think about… :/) But as far as getting all upset about the style or look of something before we’ve even seen it, or without really giving it a chance to prove itself just because it’s not how we personally wanted to see things done… yeah, I’m finished with that. It’s just not nearly as much fun as sitting back and enjoying things for what they are. I’ve found that I enjoy things so much more than I just don’t worry about them, and I end up liking a lot of things that I thought I would’ve hated in the past (ahem, *whispering* Rebels).

        That’s something I think about a lot, especially after seeing one of those TLJ deleted scenes. . . it’s almost easy to assume they’re all evil (and sometimes, I suppose one rather wants to, it’s less to worry about. I’ve seen the prose versions of ANH and they’re really gruesome. Cassian’s arc tied into that — ya know, I really just loved R1. . . it brought out the worst of both sides and somehow that made them so much better!)
        Hmmmm. . . I haven’t heard much else so maybe I’m safe from being narrow-minded. . . but this guy sounds a LOT like a mislead Ezra. . . and lol, this is the new canon now? They’re mirroring things remarkably. . . I remember back in the Thrawn books when Luke and MARA, the ex-emperor’s hand, get stranded and have to team up to survive. . . same time period too XP
        I know!!! I thought for sure they’d wait until Solo had run its course, and then give the drop, but I guess they didn’t want to wait! Hehe, the anime is actually one of the reasons I’m most excited. I’ve never seen any anime stuff before, but it always looks cute (been working on that style as of late!), but hopefully it’s not just gonna be a glorified 22 minute episode of Forces of Destiny. . .
        Yusss, I learned my lesson on that with (surprisingly) Rebels. Nervous about it b’cuz of Mister Inquisitor, I decided not to watch it. But thank goodness for little siblings who won’t leave ya alone till you turn it to the new Star Wars!!! So here I am now, able to do almost twice as many crafts as I could before 2014, and far better skilled in the other ones. . .
        And yeah, I do hope that never becomes an issue. Saw where someone acutally said to quit giving us kid’s material and go darker. . . that’s sad; SW was for ALL ages when it was made!!! Rebels was the perfect balance — if those crazy people want something darker, there is PLENTY more of that all over the place. Go watch that — if they want that type of material, they never wanted Star Wars in the first place.

        I guess Del is kinda like Ezra, if he’d had a different upbringing… but he’s not as, well, energetic, I guess? He’s pretty laid back and good-natured about most things, while Ezra can be quite hyper when the mood strikes. XD
        And yep, all New Canon! So it “really happened,” as some say. I think it’s really neat how they’re mirroring Old Canon just enough for those who know to pick up on it, but still changing it enough so that they’re not tied down to doing everything the way the EU did. Which can be both good and bad, I guess…

        I have a couple friends who love “anime-inspired” stuff, and I’ve wanted to check out some of the “milder” ones for a little bit, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. (I’ve heard great things about the new Voltron show; about the SHOW itself, though, cuz’ I know the fandom is really messed up and I’ve been advised to stay away from most of it if I ever do get into the show… let’s just say that a lot of people who like the show are really obsessed with a ship that I can’t at all agree with, even though it’s not canon at all.)

        My big issue with Rebels at the beginning was 1) I thought it was all a money-grab by Disney to make a new “kidsy Star Wars” rip-off and sell merchandise from it, and 2) because I was *strongly* opposed to the idea of any other Jedi being around in the Rebellion era besides Obi-Wan and Yoda (in hiding, of course), and Luke later on. But I still kept up with reading about it on the SW official site, and managed to get myself interested in spite of my doubts. We went through the first season in several weeks while it was on hiatus between season 1 and 2, and the rest is history.

        Same here, wholeheartedly. There’s already quite a few of the New Canon books and comics that I can’t read for various reasons, ranging from heavy darkness to other types PG-13-level content to other things I just can’t agree with. I just hope they keep that, now that they’ve introduced some of that stuff, they’ll keep it confined to those few things that people can easily skip over if they want, and not bring it into the shows/films as well, where we can’t get away from it.

        Sounds like a pretty good person to be around then — but really, Ezra’s “hyperness” is what makes him so ridiculous at times XD I just keep thinking of his re-evaluation of Lando after Sabine turned down his own comment on her art in favor of a smugglers. . .

        That’s good!!! Lol, really happened — I’m one of those people XP But I’m never gona forgive them for giving Jacen Solo’s name away to THIS LITTLE CRITTER who has GREEN HAIR. . . *sigh* XP That is pretty cool; and I guess in some way it’s an apology to die-hard EU fans. But still. . . Mara — Jaina — Tenel Ka!!!

        Hehe, I do too, but since it’s usually magic stuff that it’s in, I’ve never watched it. But it’s still cute to doodle. (Oh goodness, one of my friends loves that show. . . she’s told me some about it and it sounds alright. But yeah, sometimes us fangirls don’t excactly see eye-to-eye and get REALLY crazy ideas. . . why in the world do people DO that??? It’s like their brains go weird or something. . . it’s very hard to understand :T)

        Well, it definitely didn’t turn out to be a rip-off!!! We got hardly any merchandise from it — and what we did get is SO RARE NOW oimeGOODNESS! Hehe, those episode guides are such a help. . . even tho they leave out the cute little one-liners and sometimes even the sub-plots too.

        I think I’ve read A New Dawn and Before The Awakening of the new canon books, and half of Ahsoka (I don’t have the book but I read a bit whenever we go to the store XP). I guess they think that kids wouldn’t be as interested in books and so they write them for older audiences — but still! This is Star Wars, people, it’s for everyone AT ONCE! Oh goodness, I hope they keep it that way! There’s like maybe three people I know who actually read the books, but if they bring it into the movies and stuff I probably*gulp* will have to try to find another fandom. . . but it’s becoming harder and harder now to find something good. . .

        But on a happier note (lol), I’m seeing more fan-creations popping up on Etsy, like the most ADORABLE Loth-cat pins and stickers, and once there was a Loth-wolf plush!!! Looks like everyone is missing the show and getting their creations out there now!

        Aw, but don’t you think he’s just a *little* cute?? It’s taken me forever to warm up to the lil’ hybrid, but at this point, if they were to put him in Resistance or the live-action show, I think I could love him with all the love a fangirl can give. XD

        Yep, I know exactly what ya mean there. I love my fandom, but sometimes I just have to take a break from the vast majority of it because of how much I disagree with many of the opinions so many of the fans are voicing, and it’s starting to bother me a lot. But that’s why I’m glad I’ve found a small group of fellow fangirls that I DO agree with, and that’s why I made TEP – so we could have a corner of the fandom to ourselves, to go and have fun when the rest of the group has gone off the deep end and we just need a break.

        Tell me about it!! I didn’t have a clue that there was any sort of relationship going on between Kanan and Hera, and there were only the tiniest hints about Ezra mega-crush on Sabine. It wasn’t until I finally watched the show that I picked up on both of these – and I had read all the episode guides for the entire first season!!
        And man, I wish we had more merch for Rebels!! I’ve found some fantastic shirts that I’m planning to save up for on RedBubble, but even with as awesome as they are, they’re all fan-made. Which is fine, and I love that so many artists are expressing their love for the series and making such awesome content for us other fans, like you said! But it’s a bummer that Lucasfilm/Disney/whoever-is-at-the-top doesn’t find it important enough to give us official things for the show anymore. 😦

        A New Dawn is probably my favorite New Canon book, and Before the Awakening is great, too (I was recently able to pick up a physical copy of that one at BAM for a great price to add to my collection). I’ve read Ahsoka too, and I could’ve loved it sooo much… but there was one subplot that I did not like at all that starts coming out towards the end, and it kinda put a damper on the whole thing for me. 😐
        I recently read Bloodline, which is about Leia several years before TFA, and how the Resistance gets started. It was really good, and the audiobook for it was fantastic! Though there were still a few things I didn’t care for in there, one being quite a bit of language scattered throughout… There were some awesome side characters, though, and with the way the timeline is, I’m REALLY hoping some of them can AT LEAST get a MENTION in Resistance!! =D =D

        Ugh, who am I kidding, he’s adorable and I’m just being a Zeb about it. . . lol, I have what, three? pages of sketches of JUST him now, then a couple with him and Mira and then another with some loth-pets and Bean. Hehe, and I likely will too. . . but Sabine will always be my favorite. Always.

        LOL you have no idea what a crazy mental picture that just gave me. . . like everyone jumps into the freezing cold pool in the middle of February and then a few fake it or start to but stay behind. . . I’ll gladly stay behind.

        Oimegoodness, we used to scour the commercial breaks on DisneyXD to see the Rebels shorts air — actually caught the whole “Machine in the Ghost” once XD That’s how I “watched” everything before seeing it on TV, since we never watched episode premieres. And nothing was nearly as sweet!!! The audio cues they give help a lot, but, for example, the “Hera and Ezra Talk” scene was not portrayed on the guide nearly as soft and sweet as it was in the show!!! Another thing that bothered me bout them is that since S3 they only gave a fixed number of slides per episode (can’t remember if it was 10 or 20. . .) and then cut WAY back on the concept arts! Which is an issue for art people. . . but I have to hand it to the Path of the Jedi trivia gallery. . . had NO IDEA that Sab and Ezra were even OUT OF THE SHIP then XD

        AIII there’s this one precious one on there that’s Sabine as a Loth-cat I SO WANT as a sketchbook. . . wallet says no way but fangirl says YUS GET IT!!!! I know. . . it’s terrible that PORGS are everywhere but we only got a limited run of Loth-cats. . . (funny story, actually, I nearly got a white one! The ReedPop site had them for a few months after celebration, but I thought it was a glitch and never got around to it. A few weeks ago I discovered that had been a legit thing and I missed out on a machine-sewn lothie. . . *sigh* Not that I don’t love my own, but they’re always really small and hurt my fingers X3 But don’t tell them that!)
        A New Dawn was great. Hera was great (minus a few parts where she was just kinda aloof) and Kanan was, well, Kanan, just younger. . . all the others (never forgetting Skully cuz I loved the “don’t take the gag off he’ll just start TALKING again” bit) were easy to see too. And then of course all those one liners (I love one-liners) were epic and perfect. Yipe lucky yous with your own copy — I read Rey’s and half of Finn’s parts in the store, and then two months later found it at the library and finished it XP Probably won’t get to finish that one anywho. . . but I did hear that’s when she gets her saber crystals and purges them white. . .
        Oi, I noticed that one in a store the other day!!! Flipped it open and saw something about a sled ride with a bunch of kid’s Leia’s age??? Or wait, I think that was Princess of Alderaan. . . idk really :T Goodness, this language thing is ridiculous. It’s like everywhere creeping into SW now — TLJ was awful for it! Even Rebels at times (Sabine is bad) got a little nastier but not bad. . . I LOVE THE SECONDARY CHARACTERS ALL OF EM — Jess Pava and Kaydel were my favorite characters in TFA, and well hey, waddaya know, there’s Kaydel up there with a major-ish role in TLJ!!! Hehe that’s another thing I want from Resistance: Jess Pava and Kare Kun pleasssseeee you guys!!!

        (Um, I’m not really sure how to say this, but no thank yous? I’m really okay being here in my little corner and watching y’all — but if you’d ever like me to write for ya I can post it here and you can always reblog any of my stuff! If it needs like editing or somethin’ that can probably be fixed. . . but thankies anywho, that’s really sweet of you to offer! :3)

        Aw, hey, I totally get your hesitation to accept him!! It was just such a shock at the end of the episode, and they gave us absolutely no time to process any of it before the show was over – just like that!!
        (oh, and when you say Mira, are ya talking about the Wren-Bridger kid, or another one??)

        Ug, YES, it annoyed me so much that they limited the number of slides and details they included!! Especially because some of the episodes of TCW got *at least* 30 slides, and I’m pretty sure it was more than that. And each of those slides had a full paragraph of details for what happened in that scene.

        Ahh, I know!! It’s so hard being a teen fangirl without a budget to back up the fangirly desires! XD

        Oh yeah, I’ve read Princess of Alderaan, too!! It ties in SUPER well with Bloodline; it’s about Leia as a teen, and when she first starts finding things out about her parents’ involvement in the Rebellion, and how she first meets and makes friends with one odd, brightly-hair-colored girl named Amilyn Holdo. =D Her and Amilyn are really cool in that book, they’ve got a great friendship. And I think Amilyn is just cool regardless, but I’ll spare you that rant now. 😉 Though there was this romance between Leia and this guy she was in this junior Senators-program thing with that I didn’t care for a ton… I mean, I don’t think it was BAD bad, but I just don’t care for a ton of that stuff anyway, so… yeah. But Bail and Breha Organa were AWESOME in it!!! They were such great parents, and had such an amazing relationship both with Leia and with each other. It makes you realize everything that Leia really did lose when Alderaan was blown up and she lost them… 😥
        Oh oh oh, I love Kaydel, too!! Lol, my friends and I are more or less the “Kaydel Ko Connix Fanclub”! XD
        And did you know that Snap Wexley and Kare Kun are actually married?! Apparently, their relationship is alluded to in the Poe comic, but I recently discovered that they secretly got married not long before TFA! Poe was the one who did their wedding… You can imagine how that went… XD

        Yeah, I’m starting to get really disappointed by the language count in a lot of recent SW things… I lot of them I could never recommend to my younger sisters because of that, even if they don’t have other problems in them that I dislike. Rebels never got to a point that I was really uncomfortable with (I mean, I don’t consider “Karabast” to be a legit “bad word”), at least not on the show itself, but TLJ did disappoint me with that.

        And to go back to something you mentioned in your last comment, about having to find another fandom if SW goes bad enough… that’s actually one of my biggest fears. I think about it a lot, and it really worries me that, at any time, it could get bad enough that I’ll have to give it up completely. And even though there are other fandoms that I already love almost as much/the same as SW (like LOTR), it’s been a big part of my life and personality for so long, having to give it up would be like amputating part of what makes me ME. I don’t what I’d do, but I do think and pray about it a lot… I just hope that if/when the day I have to make a choice comes, I’ll have the strength to do the right thing, even if it’s hard… 😦

        Hehe yeah we get like two minutes to contemplate just HOW MUCH this can affect the thinking one had on these final episodes. . . (yup, that Mira. Found out about her and since she’s pretty well-developed for an OC, I figured she and Jacen could be buds. Even if the time difference is pretty big tho. Of course her parentage is a little *off* but hey, Jacen is too. . .)

        Lol, yuss! I was obsessed with one CW episode before Rebels aired, and when I found the guide I was so happy! It detailed the WHOLE EPISODE! So of course I expected that from the Rebels ones too. . . *sigh*

        Ahhh, so *that’s* where Amilyn fits in! I remember hearing something about she really likes glitter??? (Which is NOT swarzy AT ALL, imho. . .) I liked her; she dealt with Poe a lot like I probably would. Put him in his place, perhaps forcibly, and carry out the plan even when others doubt it. Of course I probably won’t have to fly a ship alone tho. . .
        Ugh. . . Leia, plz. . . it’s like they try to write her “with” every boy she meets :T Oi, that’s great to hear, there’s so little about them canon now! Aww. . . we’re watching ANH (May the Fourth Be With You, btw XD) and I missed that part. . . I wanted to watch her face again. She’s a really good actress — Leia and Carrie — and hides everything so well. . . I read a short story at one point (can’t remember what one) from her point of view and it just was so perfect. I’ll have to find out what one it was.
        I love her and all those sweet little background characters and it’s awful that they get such limited screen time. Lol, they should do something like the My Little Pony episode, “Spice of Life,” where all the background characters are the stars XD Yup, I actually saw that last week! A classic example of SW romance I guess. . . OIMEGOODNESS — POE did the ceremony?!?! That must have been a true comedy show!!! I’d do anything to get that as a FoD episode — or hey, maybe it’ll be in Resistance!!!
        I heard that Thrawn (book) was bad on that, which is awful since I’ve heard some great things about the story itself. Lol, yeah — it was so funny to hear that alien in R1 (forgot his name :T) scream that!!!
        It’s scary, it really is, that we should even have to think that it’ll get too bad. “If it’s doubtful it’s dirty” is something my friends and I heard at our summer camp a few years back, and even then I thought of SW right away. Like you said, though, if they restrain it to the expanded canon then it’ll be easier to avoid, but if it gets movie sized it’s gonna be a problem. LotR *has* been growing on me since my bro and I started reading the books, but SW is really the only fandom I think I’ll care for. MLP used to be a big thing, but it just got so *dark* for pastel-colored ponies that I’ve let that fall, and Ninjago too for the same reasons. I think that there’ll always be something that will be there, if not a fandom something else, that we’ll find to love. Cats, perhaps? I could go for a cat GIF right now. . . :3

        Ahh, YES, that would be an excellent FoD, too!! X’D

        And yes, the Thrawn book did have a lot of language… It was a fantastic story, and it makes you see him and Pryce, their relationship, and especially those last several episodes in a whole new light!! But I was really frustrated with how much low-level swearing there was… It was the same kind of stuff that was in ANH, but way more of it. 😦

        I supposed so… It’s just that I’ve been a SW fans more-or-less since I was about 3 years old, and it’s always been this thing my sisters and our dad can do together and nerd out about. If that gets taken from me, it’s just gonna be like a whole part of my childhood is gone…

        Oh cool, y’all are reading LOTR? What do you think of it so far?? =D

        Yeesh. . . that’s just ridiculous. I can see Pryce being that way, maybe, but Thrawn just isn’t that way to me at all.
        It’s something special to everyone. . . two of my best friends I made or got to know better through it — plus I met you and Audrey too! 😀 For me, it’s my art and music. I actually consider art or music as a career now, because I took the time to draw my favorite characters and play the songs! So yeah. . . it’ll hurt if they decide to make this too much and we have to back off. But hopefully we’ll be spared that, and everything will be fine. . .
        I liked The Hobbit best, but LotR was epic (was, cuz I read the whole trilogy in like a weekend XP I liek books)! I think Pippin is my favorite (hobbit, that is). . . he’s so headstrong and curious but he really does mean well at the end! And Sam is so sweet and loyal to Frodo — he kept Gollum in line well! Actually Gollum is my all-around favorite XD He talks to himself, like me, and he’s so silly yet evil. . . but none of it was ever really his fault. Although my one complaint is that it would have probably been best as a single book. It just feels like it’s been stretched-out. . . :T But other than that, it’s one of THE BEST books I’ve ever read and I luv it X3

        Maybe I should clarify: Thrawn never said any of it, it actually was mostly Pryce and the rest was other side characters. (And a lot of it wasn’t actually “said” at all, it was things Pryce was thinking.) In fact, the book wasn’t even from the POV of Thrawn; the parts centering on him where almost entirely from the POV of Eli Vanto, his assistant.

        I love the humor in The Hobbit! It’s a lot like Narnia, with the way everything is done in this subtle, dry sort of way, with the authors’ older British way of writing. I find it so much fun to read!! Eeek, yes, Pipping is amazing!!! And Sam is probably the best best-friend ever to be written in the history of stories! Aw, poor Gollum… even though he was evil and kinda got what was coming to him, I always felt bad for him. Because he DID WANT to be good, and then when he did turn totally to “the dark side”, it was all because of a misunderstanding. I just always felt bad for him…

        Oh. Hehe. Okayyyy. . .that makes FAR more sense. . . hehe, what she was thinking XD I can totally see her shredding anyone in her way IN HER MIND but being just sarcastic to them in face 😛

        They’re my two favorite authors, so The Hobbit fit right in with my preferred writing style! Poor little Gollum. . . but it was good for him that Bilbo got the ring — otherwaywise he’d have faded away :T But he wasn’t really inherently evil, was he? I think it was the ring that turned him, not his own personality. Idk really. So who’s your favorite?

        I think it was a lot like how being evil happens in Star Wars… there is a point where the person who has happened to pick up the Ring has to make a choice, and decide whether they’re going to keep the power and let it corrupt them, or leave it (which is more or less impossible for most people) and continue on without it. I think the Ring was supposed to be symbolic of how power and fame and money are for many people: they easily corrupt people, and it’s nearly impossible for many to let go of them when they see that happening.

        Hmm, that’s a hard question… I really love Eowyn, even though she’s not a member of the Fellowship. And I love Sam! And Legolas and Gimli as a duo are so great, too! 😀
        I also love Bilbo from The Hobbit, especially the way he’s portrayed in the movies. He’s so quirky, and has such a good heart. 🙂

        OH DID YOU SEE THE NEWS YET?!!! This is not at all related to LOTR, but I GOT TO TALK TO HERA YESTERDAY!!!! Actually it was Vanessa Marshal, but she IS Hera, so…. EEKK!!! I had agreed to guest again on the SWGG podcast for May the 4th, but they surprised me by not telling me that she was going to be on as well! I still feel so hyped whenever I think about it!!! XD XD XD

        Oihaii, that is a goooood thought, that there!!! See, what we’re supposed to be doing is applying the stuff to real life, and the Ring I was kinda just seeing as evil. . . but yeah, I can totally see it that way now! Like, something that’s not *inherently* evil, but the choice the user makes determines the outcome. Only in this case, I guess it’s more of a question of “do or do not” pick it up XP
        Sam is so sweet — I can see (here’s a really big surprise) Ezra in him, with his protectiveness and loyalty, but he’s got Sabine’s aim with an apple ;3 I liked Eowyn too — maybe the warrior girl thing is my ideal character or something, but I just found her really brave to step out in a world where males fighting was the obvious norm (by-the-by, I am curious, are there more Middle Earth (canon) books? Surely there’s a little more to the fandom than four books and six movies. . .)
        I LOVED THE WAY HE PLAYED BILBO oimeegoooodnesssss tho — that wierd little nose thing was so *weird* and yet it fit his character so perfectly!!! It’s the little things that make a portrayal great, and that guy did a flat-out AMAZING job with him 😀

        YUSSS I DID!!! Hehe but really — she IS Hera as far as I’m concerned XD You sooo luckiesss!!! I’m planning to listen once I get a minute. . . but oimegoodness really that is like one of THE GREATEST THINGS A FANGIRL COULD HOPE FOR AKKK

        Awww, Sam is a lot like Ezra!! How did I never see that before?!
        So if we’re comparing Fellowship characters with the Ghost crew… I guess that makes Kanan Aragorn?? That’s actually pretty funny, now that I think about it… XD
        Oh yeah, I love Eowyn so much!! I think she was a great balance between still being a girl fully, but also joining in with the guys and fighting when the time came. And her and Faramir are a great pair, in my opinion… My sis and I have this headcanon that maybe Jacen will have a sweet personality like Faramir’s when he gets older. 😀
        And yes, there are! There’s The Silmarillion, which is basically the entire history of Middle-earth. It starts out with what I tend to call “the book of Genesis for Middle-earth.” It talks about how the world was created, how men, elves, and dwarves came to be, and how Morgoth fought against the Valar (Morgoth is Sauron’s master; he was the first Dark Lord of Middle-earth. The Valar are kinda like angels, in a sense.) And about how Sauron first started deceiving men, long before he made the Ring, and then how he learned to make the Ring, and everything else. It’s a bit hard to get through, because it really is like Genisis for a fictional world, but it’s fantastic how much backstory for EVERYTHING there is in it!! There’s also The Children of Hurin, which tells the story of the kids of this guy who fought Morgoth and got captured… their story is told very briefly in The Silmarillion, but this book really fleshes it all out and explains it in a more story-like fashion. I will say, though… if you thought Rogue One got dark and depressing, it ain’t got nothin’ on this story… Then there’s also Beren and Luthien, which just got published recently, and tells the story of Beren (a man) and Luthien (an elf) who stole a jewel from Morgoth’s crown. They were also a man and elf who loved each other, like Arwen and Aragorn, and they have a very interesting story. They’re distantly related to both of them, and their stories are very tightly connected. And there’s the book of Unfinished Tales, too, which are bits and pieces of the history of Middle-earth that Tolkien never finished before he died.
        As you can see, there is A LOT about Middle-earth, and a lot of it gets super deep super fast! It’s all amazing, though, because there is so much world building, and there are so many details for EVERYTHING – the way the world is set up, the different races, the way everything was created, the different family trees and genealogies, EVERYTHING is thought out to the most extreme degree.

        Ahhh, thank you!! I was freaking out so much when I came on and realized that she was on the call too!!! I had NO IDEA!!!! It was the best May the 4th surprise ever, it still feels surreal when I think about it!!

        Oimegoodness. . . well both Kanan and Aragorn both seem to like green, if my memory serves me correctly. . . but who would that make Zeb? And Chopper. . . ehhh. . . I hate to say it. . . Gollum XP

        Ahrggg. . . call me crazy, but I actually started reading that — lost interest cuz I hadn’t the slightest clue what it was supposed to be about and left it alone.
        AK! Beren and Luthien — I just last week was re-reading Fellowship and that part where Aragorn (I generally refer to him as Strider tho XD) tells/sings them the story. . . wondered why he did that — now I knows!!! So it was a subtle sort of connection, I guess! *fangirly squeak* I love finding all the little references and stuff in everythingssss. . . thankies for mentioning that, probably wouldn’t have noticed that at all!!!
        Meep I’m so gonna hafta get around to that soon then — sounds like y’all had a blast!

    Wow, that does fit them SO WELL!!! I mean, I really don’t care for anything rap-like (no offense…), but the more “songish” parts of that one are perfect for our SpaceKids!!!! Ahhh, it have me so many feels!!! I just wanna know what happened, where they are now, and that they’re safe and all back together with the rest of their SpaceFam again!! 😵
    {Sorry for ranting, it’s just that I’ve been informed by my real family (um, mainly my sis) that I am “way too obsessed and just need to let it go!!” lately. So I haven’t been able to really talk about all the SpaceFam things in my brain a ton since the finale passed.}

      Eeee, I know!!! I just love the whole song, and yeah, rap isn’t my thing either. Heh, it’s good to know *what* you’re hearing, yes? XD I miss them so much!!! I’ve been working on an Ezra plushie, actually. . . that’ll be something good to go with the lothie cats and wolves!!!
      (Oh, girl, you’re fine!!! Yeah, my fam thinks I’m crazy but I don’t mind. They put up with me with a smile so I can’t complain! LET IT GO?! That’s like the worst way to tell a SW fan to hush!!! *shudders* don’t bring up the princess side of Disney to SW peeps XP Oh gracious, yes, I’m still unpacking all that. . . and that song didn’t really help with serious thinking ;3)
