Hello, Dreamwidth! I've been howling over Rogue One on Tumblr for days now, which is totally fine. Haha. Merry Christmas.

Short version: I think a couple of the criticisms in terms of structure are legit, and also OH MY GOD I LOVE LOVE I LOVE THIS IS PROBABLY MY FAVOURITE SW SINCE EMPIRE OH GODDDDD ALSO TWO OTPS OUT OF ONE MOVIE WHAT A FILM A+++++

An anon asked me for a review, so my longer and more coherent review:

In my head, this post has always been the natural follow up to my Death Star rant, aka “why Luke was totally justified in blowing up the Death Star and certainly not a mass murderer.” Actually I'm not sure they have anything to do with each other, but anyway.

So apparently I will never run out of these (eta: holy crap there were a lot of them). And I'm gearing up for my essay on the eighteenth-century sublime as a tool of masculine domination (we were supposed to use Northanger Abbey but I got the okay to use Sanditon instead) and a final for my Bible-as-literature class and a revision/four-page-explanation of revision, so.

I wonder if anybody can guess my favourite character. *whistling*

In the interests of practicing conciseness (...not my strength), and not beginning every post with random updates about my life, I finally caved and made a twitter account instead. Anghraine, of course.

Title: Revenge of the Jedi (7/17)

Fanverse: Revenge of the Jedi

Blurb: Leia is guilty and restless in the Rebellion; Luke is sent through the Department of Backstory, and realizes what it means.

I was just looking over my tags and realized that the only things I haven't actually posted in my lj (and dw) are the three things I wrote expressly for a livejournal challenge: First Impressions, The Adventures of Lucy Skywalker, and Revenge of the Jedi. So, here we go -- backwards, of course, because I feel like it. Also, I just remembered -- with the latter two, I amused myself by alluding to as many other fandoms as I could possibly manage without derailing the story. I'll list the references later, but feel free to look for them, if you want. ;)

------------------------

Title: Revenge of the Jedi (Prologue)

Fanverse: Revenge of the Jedi, obviously

Blurb: After the escape from Cloud City, Vader keeps plotting against the Emperor and trying to get Luke to help him, Leia gets drawn into the plight of the surviving Alderaanians, Han hangs on Jabba's wall, and Luke leaves the squadron to be a full-time Jedi.

Pairings/warnings/assorted notes: various alternate pairings; references to genocide and murder; while the story occasionally draws on material from ROTJ, the PT, and even (gasp!) the EU, it isn't compliant with the canon of anything except the film versions of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Also, there is a shiny fanmix here. <3

Length: 58,773 words (prologue + seventeen chapters; finished)

I'm behind on my memes and ... I'm not doing them today, either. But I do have the next chunk of my scene-by-scene rewatching of Star Wars, aka A New Hope. So here we go, SW (and TV Tropes)!

Rambling version )

Concise details! )
anghraine: luke walking onto a hill, backdrop of himself and the binary sunset; text: destiny awaits (luke skywalker)
I aced two exams and an essay, and finished the other essay.  So I feel that I deserve my casual, episodic fantasy genderswap crammed full of heroines and villainesses.

----------------------

Title:  Once Upon A Time (3/?)

Fanverse: Once Upon A Time (fantasyland genderswap AU)

Blurb:  This is the chapter wherein we rehash slightly-altered canon, with a tiny bit of world-building on the side, and crawl towards the plot.

Pairings/warnings:  none

Length:  682 words

Otherwise known as the part wherein we find that Tarkin's death was quicker than he deserves, Leia kicks ass, Vader did not blow up Alderaan, and I theorise about the Force. Warning for TV Tropes, per the usual, though not many.

This has become more a close reading (with TV Tropes and the occasional picture) than anything else -- if wasn't already that from the beginning. Meh, whatever. That works too. It may even be useful than pure backstory-hunting for the au_bb. Especially if I do The Adventures of Lucy Skywalker -- I'll want to have looked very closely at the entire OT, and this is the point where things would start changing. There is no way Han would react to Lucy the way he does Luke.

Anyway, back to Tatooine, everyone's favourite Crapsack World.

It's weird how incredibly different this entire film feels.

Okay, to the Death Star! And TV Tropes!
