I’ve wanted to do something more with this image edit since I made it in 2017 and back then I didn’t have a good working knowledge of Photoshop. I guess I was an adequate GIF maker but now I’ve had a whole year of practice with photoshop and plotograph, and well, I think I’ve personally, learned a whole lot and hopefully, I’ve improved.
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).
I know that I said I would be doing profiles of lesser-known Star Wars characters, but I just adore Kylo Ren – next to Darth Vader, he is my favourite Star Wars villain (Darth Vader pips him at the post but only just). So I’ve decided I will try and do one profile every day until I run out of characters to profile (not likely – remember the EU?) Continue reading → Star Wars “Who Am I?” – Kylo Ren
It was time. There was no way that I was going to be late so I kept all other thoughts out of my head and focused. I didn’t want to talk myself out of this – this was going to happen! I walked towards the elevator and pressed the button to go up. I watched as the lights lit up, floor by floor. I never realised how big the Finalizer was until now. The very top floor was allocated to General Hux. Before I could access it, I had to use the intercom so that the guards could see who I was. My hand was shaking as I pressed the button.
“Yes?” an unknown male voice crackled through the speaker
I cleared my throat. “It’s… I mean, uh…”
“Identify yourself, now!” the voice interrupted
“Cadet XN2903 requesting permission for access”
“Fine. Step out so we can see you Cadet”
I looked up. A security camera was pointed down towards me. I did as the guard requested and stood directly under it. A few moments passed. I waited patiently for a reply.
“Access granted, you can open the doors”
I pressed the button and as the doors slowly opened, my stomach felt queasy. I had to steady myself for a moment. I stepped out of the elevator and the doors shut quickly behind me. I looked around but there was nothing to see but cold, dark, metal painted the same colour as everything else on the Finalizer.
I heard movement coming from further down the corridor. Two heavily armed special forces guards turned the corner and walked directly towards me.
“We’re your escort, Cadet. Let’s go”
Flanking me on either side, the guards walked in unison with me down the long corridor. We finally came to another heavily guarded door. One of the guards nodded and opened the door for me.
“It isn’t wise to keep General Hux waiting” one of the guards mumbled, pushing me inside.
I peered around the corner and could see a faint light coming from a room down the end of the hallway. I walked towards it, holding my hands together to stop them from shaking.
With a week to go before final assessments, I’ve been concentrating as much as possible on being the top cadet. But I’ve been distracted so much lately, I just can’t focus without thinking of General Hux.
I’ve seen him a few times since we talked after training that day, and every time I see him, he seems to stare just a little too long. I’m usually forced to look away and pretend I didn’t see him. I can’t tell if it’s sexy or kinda creepy. If it wasn’t for that chiselled perfection he calls a face, I’d be thinking of how to end his life right about now.
