Real life monsters wish they had spin-teams as thorough as Kylo’s because they’ve literally made Kylo’s violence towards Rey, his act of patricide, and his eager indulgence in fascism… someone else’s fault. Continue reading
Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is the focus for the cover story for Vanity Fair’s Summer 2019 issue and readers were “blessed” with dual covers – one with Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren and the other with Daisy … Continue reading
So fucking what Finn initially held back from telling Rey that he was a Stormtrooper that defected in The Force Awakens –
At least he’s not an entitled, mind-rapey douche that keeps gaslighting her, who tortured her, and who keeps trying to kill her.
You know… like Kylo is. Continue reading
In and outside of fandom spaces, performative allyship is a thing to be wary of. In a piece for The Wooster Voice, writer Sharah Hutson describes performative allyship as, “when folks pretend to care about a cause but magically forget … Continue reading
Some of fandom’s favorite characters are “blank slates”.
Beige blank slates, that is. Continue reading
If left unchecked, there’s no limit to how many times I’ll bring up Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn (the 2016 novel and its titular character) in a conversation about Star Wars. Continue reading

Where Are Y’all Getting Your Characterization From? Finn Isn’t A Coward, Or Selfish, And He Doesn’t Need A Damn Redemption Arc.
I’m not Resistance. I’m not a hero. I’m a Stormtrooper. Like all of them, I was taken from my family I’ll never know. And raised to do one thing. In my first battle, I made a choice. I wasn’t going to kill for them. So I ran, right … Continue reading
Notes: The following post will mention childhood abuse (and who gets to have that kind of trauma respected/made up for them to give them weight and validate their actions) and spoilers from the film and novelization versions of The Last Jedi … Continue reading
I woke up on MLK Day swearing that I’d dreamt up a tumblr post where someone quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in order to defend Hux, Kylo Ren, and the First Order. When I went through my archives, not only … Continue reading
Before Before the Awakening, stormtrooper FN-2187 is assigned creche duty. The experience is… illuminating. Typically, FN-2187’s work assignments never take him through the creche. That section of the ship has their own sanitation workers and FN-2187 is not one of them. … Continue reading
I don’t have the energy to write a full review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I mean, I literally don’t have any energy. I’m exhausted from not sleeping well the night before and I’m literally trying to write this … Continue reading
