Star Wars Fandom – Weird Star Wars Stuff

Hi all! I hope you are all doing well and keeping safe out there. Today I’d like to talk about the Star Wars fandom after I saw someone post a GIF of Rey, Ben Solo and Paul Atreides on Twitter.

If you haven’t seen this weird fandom thing yet, you probably will soon. It’s not a new thing that star wars fans have talked about but it has reared its ugly head once more thanks to the movie Dune releasing recently. So my understanding of this fandom thing is that if Ben Solo and Rey had a kid, it would be Paul Atreides. I’m not 100 per cent sure that’s correct – it could just be that if Ben and Rey had a kid it would look exactly like Paul Atreides from Dune.

For anyone that doesn’t know who that is, this is Paul Atreides:


I made a little clip about this which I am hoping to use on social media but this explains it all 😂🤣

So that’s what is happening on Twitter right now. I haven’t bothered looking anywhere else but I’m sure there are videos on IG as well (and probably Tumblr).

Let me know what you think of this strange fandom thing. If you’re interested in reading more about weird fandom pairings and such you can check out more of my posts here.

Dune Image Updates

I figured with the actual trailer for Dune about to drop any day now, nobody is going to care about a couple of enhanced images taken from a mobile phone in a theatre.


From what I have read, the teaser was made specifically for viewers in theatres and therefore, the content may or may not be the same in the trailer dropping soon. Part of the teaser trailer is the same as the one viewed in theatres, namely this image of Paul below:

The last image is really bad and I didn’t bother editing that because the quality is just so poor but as you can see, one of these shots is taken in the desert. And the other two are taken from the “What’s in the box?” scene that I’m hoping will be covered much better in the trailer.

Are you looking forward to Dune this year? I am hoping they won’t push it back but you never know. However, with Tenet storming away in theatres in the USA now, I doubt they’ll be pushing Dune back and I am hoping the trend continues with COVID-19 being stomped out!

For me, these movies represent something that gives me an escape from some of the not-so-good days we’ve all been having. And I get excited and feel happier when I know something is coming that’s going to be fun and entertaining. And it’s also something I can share with all my readers which is the most important thing!

I hope you are having a good day and remember that it’s “okay to not be okay”. I saw that on a Pinterest board and I loved it 🙂

ALSO DUNE FANS did you get that Timothee Chalamet is quoting word for word from the book? Wowww I can’t wait for this!

Hit me up in the comments and I would love to talk about Dune with everyone!

My Star Wars Gifs and Edits

House Atreides GIFs and Graphics!

I have had some fun this morning creating different variations of GIFs and graphics from some PNG images I created earlier when making this. I then went online and found that someone had created a House Atreides coat of arms which I then “borrowed” and cut out into a different image.

From that point on it was easy peasy creating different variations of the emblem (the Red Hawk) and the House Atreides colours (which are black and green). I made changes here and there and finally decided on the following graphics as final images for uploading here:

The variation I made was, in the end, tossed aside for the image above. Still, I originally started out with creating a different Coat of Arms for House Atreides and ended up removing the shield altogether. I really liked the blending edit I made of Paul though and somehow wanted to integrate that into my final image which also didn’t happen.

So I just kept the graphic instead without the GIF added to it:

I’ve also watermarked all my images. I just think it’s easier for me to identify when someone has taken my edits and claimed them as their own when they can’t see the watermark. It’s sneaky but a necessity these days, unfortunately.

Let me know what you think of my edits in the comments if you like, and as always stay safe and keep creating!
