I made a “reylo thing” – having fun in Microsoft Photos

I’ve had a lot of time to muck around lately as I’ve been pretty much bed-ridden for the last week or so with the Flu. As you can tell, my weekly posting of SWTOR content has been non-existent but now that I feel a lot better, I’ll be resuming those posts soonish. I’ve been getting back into making and creating things – I used to create gifs and images quite often too but stopped when I deactivated by Tumblr account a couple of years back.

Here’s a little clip I put together using Microsoft Photos. I had fun playing around with all the different settings and animation effects you can use.

Please note: the above artwork is not my own, artist unknown – I only edited and enhanced the original image using Microsoft Photos.

A cyclone came to say “hello” and this is what I learned in its passing …

Darksider Blog Banner Personal post so if you don’t want to read this, tune out now! On Tuesday a category 2 Cyclone hit my city. And it hit it harder than anything I can remember in the past. We’ve had earthquakes before, but the damage from this cyclone seemed to be a lot more prevalent. Power is out for more than 100,000 people. I was one of the lucky ones – my power went off for a few hours and was then restored. I thank god nobody was badly hurt or worse. Only one woman that I know of was pinned down inside her car because a tree fell on top of it. She had minor injuries. I am very relieved that this cyclone wasn’t bad enough to kill anyone – but it was close enough for me to really think about life and how much we really do take for granted. This is what I learned: Continue reading → A cyclone came to say “hello” and this is what I learned in its passing …

These broken feels – courtesy of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo… *spoilers*

The above image was taken from Twitter and I immediately began thinking about the possibilities if The Last Jedi had included a scene where Luke Skywalker was reunited with Han Solo. There has been a lot of speculation about similar possibilities such as reuniting Ben Solo with his mother Leia or even reuniting the entire Solo family. Unfortunately, none of these scenarios was likely after TFA (where Han Solo is killed by Kylo Ren) and TLJ (when Jedi Master Luke Skywalker becomes one with the force).

Star Wars is Poetry – “The Balance”

Star Wars is Poetry – here is a poem I put together using Rey and Kylo Ren/Light and Dark/The Balance of the Force as inspiration. Hope you like it!

The Balance Star Wars is Poetry

You
captured my heart
with a touch, with a touch
In a moment
lost in time’s embrace
We found our way to heaven

As darkness rises
In your light, I shall hide
until the pain, and the fear,
and the suffering
subside

For you
are the light
that saved me, that saved me
In that moment
lost in time’s embrace
We found our way to heaven

So much Star Wars goodness!

Darksider Blog Banner

This week is shaping up to be a nice week for me, especially in the Star Wars arena. Firstly, my star wars work buddy and I ordered our copies of the Junior Novelisation of The Last Jedi and the expanded edition of The Last Jedi both of which should arrive in the next week or so. It’s way behind everyone else in the Northern hemisphere (almost always) but I am so excited to read them both. Secondly, I just pre-ordered the steel book version of The Last Jedi which is the first steel book Blu-Ray I’ve ever ordered. I am definitely coming late to the party but better late than never, right? And lastly, the SWTOR updates that are coming will be amazing and even though they’ve (EA/Bioware) pushed things back by a week for the update, I am definitely excited for what’s to come.

The Writing Balance…

 

Darksider Blog Banner

I haven’t written anything in the last few days and I have been painfully aware of this fact. But each and every time I attempt to write something, it just doesn’t seem like the right place for me to express myself and I cease up and end up doing nothing at all. This blog is the SWTOR/Star Wars website I’ve always wanted but I can’t use it when I feel the need to and I have so many thoughts I have to work through. Continue reading → The Writing Balance…
