My Fanfiction: The Sequel to QI’RA Has Arrived

Qi’ra has become my favorite Star Wars character to highlight in my fanfiction because I just found her storyline to be interesting. She has this dark side but there’s a sense of goodness to her, as well. This side of her is what drew me to her.

In my last fanfiction series, QI’RA, I tackled her storyline for the first time in an original setting (my first story with her involved a fanfiction series called If Only She Could Tell the Truth, which featured her side of the story in Solo). QI’RA is set directly after Solo and tells the story of her rising as this fierce, dangerous, feared leader of Crimson Dawn.

At the end of the series, following the betrayal of her Top Lieutenant/lover Nienye, she goes to defeat Maul on Dathomir and through an epic confrontation wins. Suddenly, she’s the one calling the shots. Now this character, who had elements of good in front of the bad, has become a leader of one of the cruelest and ruthless crime syndicates in the galaxy. It’s the exact opposite of Han’s storyline, as he was first a smuggler and then became a rebel leader.

She’s also now allied with some of the most dangerous people in the galaxy; the Empire, Emperor Palpatine, etc. Yeah, she’s turned to the dark side essentially.

After I finished QI’RA I didn’t want to stop there. I wanted to continue this story in a way that sheds a light on her evolution as a character in a thoughtful and fulfilling way. I also wanted to touch upon another character that I have found very interesting to write and that is Enfys Nest.

In QI’RA I had Enfys Nest play a brief role in the story. Now, in QI’RA: A Rebel Rises, Enfys Nest is sharing the spotlight. This is a development that I have been really excited to share but that’s not the only surprise I have up my sleeve. Here’s the official poster.

Yes, there are a lot of changes in this new story.

Set six months after the destruction of the first Death Star, the galaxy is in turmoil. Qi’ra, an essential ally to the Empire, and Enfys Nest, a lingering presence in the Rebellion, are navigating the galaxy as polar opposites of one another…but are they as different as we first think and will their storylines cross again? 😉

Qi’ra’s long hair is now cut short, giving her a new look that I am totally in love with. Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo will play small roles in this story because…why not! I’m making sure not to include them too heavily into the story in order to keep them from outshining Enfys Nest but…they’re in it. (So excited!)

And as you can see there’s a new boss for Qi’ra to meet. One that far exceeds Darth Maul and that is Darth Vader. Qi’ra has constantly been defiant against those with power or those who she feels use their power to bully others. How will she fare in the same presence as the Sith Lord? It should be interesting.

I can’t wait for you to read this series which will simultaneously arrive every day along with my current Episode X: The Reckoning series starting tomorrow. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy the surprises both of these stories have in store.

I thank you for taking the time to read this post (and read my fanfiction series) and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.

Which Character Are You Most Excited to See in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’?

The Rise of Skywalker is just days away, with the world premiere happening tomorrow night. To say I’m excited is an understatement but enough of that. The focus today is on you, my dear readers, and your opinion leading up The Rise of Skywalker. Of course, before the movie comes out and delivers what should be a whopping punch to the emotions with this grand saga finale, I have one last question for the film to ask of you? Which character are you most excited to see in the movie? So, with no further delay, here are the characters. Enjoy!

Zorii Bliss

Masked newcomer Zorii Bliss is practically screaming coolness. With a fantastic outfit and an interesting history with Poe Dameron, this character should play an intriguing role in this upcoming film.

D-O

If you love new droids you will be clamoring to see the newest droid to join the Star Wars family, the very cute D-O.

Jannah

Have you always wanted to see a fierce female warrior who wields a bow in Star Wars? Well, you’ll love Jannah then.

Lieutenant Connix

Lieutenant Connix has obtained more love from fans due to her roles in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, plus being the daughter of Carrie Fisher makes her that much more special. With undoubtedly a larger role on the horizon, Connix is destined to shine in this movie.

General Leia Organa

With Leia being highlighted in a greater light in the newest tv spots for The Rise of Skywalker it’s very certain that J.J Abrams is going to give Leia the role that she deserves in this final film.

Luke Skywalker

Ghost or not a ghost? I can’t exactly tell but I’m sure J.J Abrams will resurrect all of Luke’s cool points by the end of The Rise of Skywalker.

Lando Calrissian

Lando is back to lend his swagger to the Resistance.

Emperor Palpatine

The mastermind himself has returned. Um…creepy. Let’s see what happens.

C-3PO

Throughout the Sequel Trilogy C-3PO has played a small role but in this last film he will play a much larger role. Will he finally meet his fate? What did his words in the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker mean? What’s going to happen? And are you getting teary just thinking about it? This movie is destined to punch us right in the feels.

R2-D2

R2-D2 hasn’t been highlighted as abundantly as C-3PO or BB-8 in the tv spots or trailers for The Rise of Skywalker but I’m sure the beloved astromech will play a satisfying role in the film.

BB-8

BB-8 is going to grasp our hearts again. I can feel it.

Rose Tico

Yay, Rose! I’m so ready!

Poe Dameron

Poe Dameron is on an adventure with his friends, meaning we’ll get plenty of time to see the dashing Resistance hero. Plus, he’ll be piloting the Millennium Falcon at some point in the movie, which should be FANTASTIC!

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren’s journey is coming to an end, whatever that may be.

Finn

Have you been waiting to see Finn highlighted in a stronger, more important role? Well, J.J Abrams is delivering just that as he has already announced that our favorite ex-stormtrooper will not be treated as simply comic relief throughout this film. Let’s do this!

Rey

From lowly scavenger to Jedi Knight, Rey’s journey nears its end. 😜

(Does the Millennium Falcon count as a character? Lol.)

So, of these characters (if there are any others not on this list please feel free to display them in the comments) who are you most excited to see? For me, honestly, I’m at a tie between Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren. They were the ones who started this trilogy and they are going to be the ones who will bring this story to an end. I can’t wait!

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.
