anghraine: from the 2005 p&p: darcy standing at a piano while georgiana plays it (anakin)
aka, I’ve talked about this a million times, but I wanted to stick all my thoughts in one place. Also, specifically kicked off by @steinbecks’ fascinating take on him here.

Warning: I am aggressively indifferent to non-film material apart from novelizations and scripts. EU material, past and present, does not enter into my interpretations.

Okay. I think that how we understand Anakin’s identity as Darth Vader is … often flawed. Vader’s sense of his identity seems to get subsumed into Yoda’s, Obi-Wan’s, and Palpatine’s sense of his identity. But the whole idea of Anakin-in-the-past and Darth-Vader-in-the-present as ontologically separate is not an idea that Anakin himself ever subscribes to.

anghraine: vader and luke dueling in esb (anakin and luke)
An anon at Tumblr asked:

Star wars questions: I've only seen the original trilogy and force awakens so far. And I was wondering - is it ever considered morally right for a Jedi to kill? I would think not, that murder is something only people on the dark side would use. Yet Obi Wan and Yoda seemed to imply that want Luke to kill his father for the greater good etc And I've always been surprised by this. Why do Jedi seem to approve of murder yet not associate it with dark or evil? Unless Jedi don't frown on murder?

My response:

Killing and murder are not the same thing, though I think the Jedi walk a pretty damn narrow line there.

Aaaaand, back to Star Wars. And eep, nearly done with this! It felt much longer when I was writing . :P

Which Star Wars Jedi/Sith are you?

Obi-Wan Kenobi

You’ve managed to train both a great evil and a greater good, not to mention whipping the ass of the coolest looking Sith in the series. However, you do have a few weaknesses, like Count Dooku and a douche bag of a Padawan. Other than that, you are the epitome of class. The accent, the outfit, and your care for those around you is highly admirable. Arguably, you are the best Jedi that ever lived, having owned Maul, Anakin and Grievous, a total of seven lightsabres among the three.

anghraine: top half: anakin c. rots; bottom half: luke and leia c. anh; text: dream until your dreams come true (skywalkers [anakin and leia and luke])
I finally finished the last of my backlog of (mostly) drabble prompts - one set took six weeks because I fail. On the upside, I've stayed caught up with my classes.

anghraine: anakin against clouds, padmé against greenery; text: heaven & earth (anakin and padmé [heaven and earth])
I've been terribly behind on everything and trying to focus(ish) on school, but I finally finished one of the responses to my last meme.

ladyhadhafang asked for "Every different person's thoughts as the Clone Wars begin," set in a SW/ATLA fusion 'verse, to the music of "This Is War." I declined to fit that into 100 words.

title: this is war (I am that brilliant)
verse: sw/atla

[Note: I personally like to imagine that Korra, Tenzin, and Lin Bei Fong invented space travel and the residents of the Avatar universe spread far and wide, until it became... y'know, Star Wars. But less white. Maybe it was later than that, though. You choose!]

I finally caved and activated my tumblr account, since so much of what I do over here is picspamming + memes. But this is my fandom home. Anyway, the account is anghraine, of course.

So, fanvids. I've been meaning to do this for ages, and this isn't all of the ones I've liked, just some that caught my eye. I have a few for other fandoms, too (omg Romana I vids <3 <3 <3), but SW is so heavy on the imagery that it just seems naturally suited to vidding.

Quasi-Recs! (Because I can't keep from complaining about anything, including things I like)

anghraine: luke after his hand gets cut off; text: there are not enough days in the week for all the therapy i'm going to need (luke [therapy])
Ha, two days instead of six months. I feel so accomplished. Warning for talking about things I dislike about the prequels, though. (I'm starting to feel this is a thing that needs to be warned for.)

This is more like part 12b, as I'm awake now and just continuing beyond the five minutes I managed to cover last time, but—anyway.

Rambling! )

This one was also written for ladyhadhafang.

title: he was despised and rejected
she asked for "luke and vader" and I set it in my very first AU verse, Ten Facts About Star Wars; prompt: I'd storm heaven for you, if I knew where it was.

ANH 12/??

anghraine: luke and leia against a yellow background, swirly circles between them; text: bonds of spirit (luke and leia [bonds of spirit])
I thought it'd been awhile since I did one of these, so I glanced back and...over six months. WTF, Elizabeth. In my defense, my DVD was non-functioning for most of that time and only got repaired about two weeks ago. But I'm still side-eyeing myself over my own comment from last time: I'm just hoping I actually finish them -- for ANH anyway -- before I turn twenty-six, heh.

My twenty-sixth birthday is on Thursday. ...Heh.

Short, but I have to go to sleep. )
anghraine: anakin against clouds, padmé against greenery; text: heaven & earth (anakin and padmé [heaven and earth])
Yay, I got a bunch of prompts for my meme, repeatedly maxed out the comment boxes and had to cut them down. And of course just about all are untitled beginnings of the 'if I were going to write this fic, which I'm not, I'd begin it something like this...' type. For convenience's sake, I will title each fic with a random line from Handel's Messiah (my go-to SW music for the bizarrely appropriate lols).

Here's the only two-part one, though, requested (in two parts!) by[personal profile] wyncatastrophe :

I got to kill someone! whee! )
anghraine: leia's eyes and padmé's (leia and padmé)
So The Phantom Menace is out again, this time in 3-D, with a less bizarre-looking Yoda. I keep telling myself to go and see it, but haven't worked myself up to it. But after having just written nine posts about my multitude of issues with Padmé Amidala, and remembering that hey, I don't like TPM but I do like Padmé in it, it seemed a good time to picspam her.

I had a great time digging the pictures up, too, whether off of tumblr or deviantart or the depths of my hard drive. Padmé Amidala = most fabulously costumed character to exist. And not in Star Wars - in anything, ever.

anghraine: from the 2005 p&p: darcy standing at a piano while georgiana plays it (lucy skywalker)
Well, The Adventures of Lucy Skywalker is, anyway. I stumbled across it the other day, and it was ... um, okay, kind of weird, because a good portion of the review is the reviewer just reading and occasionally interspersing commentary, and the way she reads it sounds nothing like how it does in my head (it’s awful, but I kept wanting to say ‘um, I put those stops there for a reason’). It's not the accent, either, just ... I don't know. The rest is a brief sum-up of her opinions that seemed mostly about some other fic she disliked, but she concluded that mine is more than adequate, which was nice? You can try to watch/listen to it here, if you want.

I have, somehow, managed to acquire too many pictures for a normal picspam since my last picspam. So instead, here are just the gifs -- all Star Wars, as usual. A few are in sets, for which I sorta-kinda came up with titles.

anghraine: close-up of luke in dagobah (luke)
In happy-making news, the ace bigbang is going to happen for reals, only it's going to be BETTER -- a full-blown people-who-aren't-straight-or-cis bigbang. I already babbled at [personal profile] tulina and [personal profile] hl and [personal profile] biichan about it, but it's so awesome that I had to share with EVERYONE. Hmm, maybe somebody will put it on [community profile] fandomcalendar and there'll be participants on the dw side? That would be cool! Anyway, that's a thing (an awesome thing!!).

Speaking of which, I was just glancing at the most recent ... events, and found something beautiful. OMG. I love OT3s and ship them across all my fandoms, and somebody's already volunteered for my very favourite one. Maybe I could get up the nerve to suggest a prompt?, probably not. (I get ridiculously nervous about these things! But still, a OT3 prompt is a thing of beauty.)

anghraine: luke and leia on the death star in anh, grinning; text: star wars: serious business (srs bznz (sw))
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*
