anghraine: leia c. esb; text: you'll never know how tough it is to be the one who isn't chosen (leia [not chosen])
When I received this (17 February 2016), I had just reblogged a Leia post and grumped in the tags about what I considered JJ Abrams' "cop-out" in respect to Leia's potential as a Jedi. (When asked about it, he didn't defend his marginalization of her abilities, but pinned the choice on Leia herself.)

An anon asked:

You know, I always wanted Leia to become a Jedi ever since I watched the original trilogy. I don't see it as a cop out that she isn't one, however. Mainly because I can see her not wanting anything to do with her father to contrast the 'I am a Jedi like my father before me.' And once her son started to fall down a similar path, I'd guess she actively wanted nothing to do with that. If it was a choice she made to contrast all of that, I think that makes sense too. So I'm OK either way

A Tumblr anon asked:

I don't know if you answered this before but do you think Mr. Collins proposal or Mr. Darcy's first proposal was more insulting?

My response (predictably):

Mr Collins. Darcy manages to stop short of 1) itemizing her dowry, 2) saying nobody else would ever want to marry her, and 3) insisting that no means yes because women are sadistic liars.
