Title: how to be a perfect jedi
Author: Gwinna
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: PG/K+
Characters: Anakin, mentions of Obi-Wan and Palpatine
Genre: Gen, plotless introspection

A/N: So, after eight years of writer’s block, I’ve managed to write a fanfic for the first time. Well, more like a ficlet. It’s super short and far from perfect, but I’m just going to go ahead and post it and hopefully move on to the next thing. Seriously, you have no idea how happy I am to have written even some trivial thing like this.


no one is sorry for being who they are )

I recced Star Wars fics (and one vid) at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van during the month of February. Unfortunately, even though I spent all day February 29th writing the last two recs I had planned, and actually did finish them before midnight, my posting access had already been taken away. :( Of course it was my own fault for procrastinating, but that doesn't make it any less annoying (it might even be more annoying). Oh well, I suppose I should look on the bright side: this means that the next time I sign up, I'll already have two recs written and ready to go.

Anyway, here are the links to my recs:

( Food Scandal by Malicean )

( Absolution by Leia Naberrie )

( VID REC: In the End by TinkleFilms )

( Dangerous History by MaraLSky )

Bonus Harry/Pansy fic that I recced during free flying month at [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom way back when:

Since I've started making icons on a more regular basis, I've created a community to post them in. The reason I'm not just posting them here is because I'll probably make icon posts more frequently than non-icon posts, so if I didn't separate them out people might start thinking this was an icon journal. And as I do still want to post about other, non-icon things here when the mood strikes me (even if that doesn't happen very often), my icons will be posted at [livejournal.com profile] galazygraphics, and this will remain my everything-except-graphics journal.

Anyway, there's not much there yet, but go check out [livejournal.com profile] galazygraphics!




Most of these icons haven't been posted yet, so think of this as a sneak preview of what's to come. :)
gwinna: (Palpatine - most evil)
So, I was rewatching the Star Wars prequels recently, and it occurred to me that I had never listened to the audio commentary for Revenge of the Sith. Accordingly I went and did so, and it was very interesting, but there was one thing George Lucas said which struck me as rather bizarre and incredible. I quote:

One of the issues in all of this is, that bad guys think they're good, and Lord Sidious thinks he's bringing peace to the galaxy, because there's so much corruption and confusion and chaos going on, and that now he's going to be able to straighten everything out, which may be true, but the price the galaxy's going to have to pay for it is way too much. -- George Lucas, RotS commentary


All I can say is, if that is what Lucas was trying to convey, he failed signally. I have never once considered that Palpatine might genuinely have wanted to bring peace to the galaxy. It never even occurred to me as a possible interpretation of his character. Nor have I ever come across such an interpretation in either fanfic or profic (admittedly I haven't read much profic, but since I like Palpatine I have read a decent amount of fanfic about him).

gwinna: (Clone Wars!Anakin)
For once I got to see an episode of the Clone Wars when it aired! So I thought I would write up my thoughts. And it really is just random thoughts, not a formal review.

~ While I was glad to see more Anakin/Padme interaction, I thought it was rather stilted and not very well done. I was a bit surprised that they had Anakin come right out and say that his love for Padme is more important to him than his duty to the Jedi Order and the galaxy so early on. Also, the set-up for Anakin's losing his lightsaber doesn't really make much sense. I thought that, though their marriage is a secret, Anakin and Padme are friends openly, and as such there's no need for Anakin to hide when Bail comes in. The way RotS makes it look, Anakin hangs out in Palpatine's office all the time; surely it wouldn't be strange for him to visit Padme as well. He could even have pretended he was there on official business. And there was plenty of time for Padme to slip Anakin his lightsaber. Or she could have left it on her desk when she left; Bail had already turned away.

more ramblings ahead )

After reading this thread at the TFN message board, I've been thinking about what might happen later in the Clone Wars series, and what I'd like to see happen.
