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

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

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 many possibilities – The Last Jedi


If you’re reading this there is a very good chance you’ve had a crazy TLJ day just like I have. First the TLJ tickets drop and then the new theatrical poster releases and lastly, the trailer itself.

Anti Reylo vs … Me?


Anti Reylo vs Me

I’ve started using Instagram as a way to connect with fellow Star Wars fans. One of the posts I made on Instagram seemed to really get up someone’s nose regarding the whole “Reylo” relationship that Kylo Ren and Rey fans are hoping will happen in The Last Jedi. I will reiterate that I AM not a supporter of either group in this – my support goes to the Star Wars fandom as a whole, not any particular group. It wasn’t my intention to do or say anything that would offend people but I guess if you post something, anything online you’re fair game for criticism whether you welcome it or not.

What being a Star Wars fan means to me

After a rather overly excited moment at the computer, I’ve managed to compose myself so I can write about the new Star Wars The Last Jedi trailer. If you’ve seen the trailer, you’ll know what I’m talking about. The trailer is just amazing! That said, some of my fellow Star Wars friends are refusing to watch it because they don’t want to see any potential movie spoilers. This situation makes it harder for me to get in touch with my inner fangirl.

I have a friend who is also totally devoted to Star Wars except we celebrate our fandom quite differently. He refuses to watch any footage prior to seeing a new film and will refuse to speak of it at all. I respect his decision but I don’t entirely understand it. I’ve never been one to worry about spoilers, in fact, I welcome them, and I have had to practice serious restraint when writing reviews so I don’t reveal anything to my audience. This is a lot harder to do than you might think, especially when you’re writing about something you’re passionate about. It’s like you can see this amazing thing and you want to celebrate this amazing thing but you cannot, under any circumstances, discuss the real reason or reasons why. You can skirt around the topic all you like and maybe even write a very small teaser or two but you can never cross the line into spoiler territory. This is the (mostly) unspoken rule of an entertainment writer.

My argument is that it’s just so much fun to think about and talk about the “what ifs?” I love watching fan made video clips and watching other fans celebrate their fandom with the world. I enjoy thinking about and writing about what could happen in The Last Jedi because it’s fun and exciting to do. If you follow the star wars tag on Tumblr, you’ll be exposed to this type of content from fans who aren’t afraid to let their minds wander through all the possibilities. I believe it’s one of those things that only a true fan could really understand. So I’m fine with those people who don’t want to talk about how exciting the new trailer is, but in my world, that’s the very reason behind why I do what I do and what it means to be a true Star Wars fan.


The new Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage just ended me

/Star Wars Fangirling rant

HOLY HOLY CRAP people – okay, as you can probably tell, I’m REALLY excited right now, and I even have watery eyes (so not actually crying but kinda close). IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE NEW STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI FOOTAGE yet, YOU just have to, you really really do.

That is all
