Throwback Friday: A Revelation About Rey

A while ago, I wrote a post detailing my theory on who Rey could be, which was linked to the Star Wars novel, Star Wars: Bloodline. Here’s a look back at that theory and how close I was to discovering the secret. Enjoy!

So I have just recently finished reading Star Wars: Bloodline which was really good by the way. This book is set, I think, six years before The Force Awakens and is focused solely on Leia and what she was doing at that time. Not only was it fun reading about that time period and all of its political struggles and so forth but it also gave me one of the largest hints about Rey that I’ve gotten in the last twenty months and I’m so excited to share it with you.

‘Singing’ In the Rain’ Is a Fun Musical

My mother provided my love for musicals once she showed me An American in Paris, the first musical to ever win Best Picture. Since then, I have wanted to watch all of the great musicals. I’ve recently seen The Sound of Music and now I’ve added Singing’ In the Rain to the list.

Of course, it’s famous for its most famous tune, “Singin’ In the Rain” but beyond that I had no idea what the film’s plot was. So imagine my surprise when I watched the movie and learned that it was about an actor in the film industry who had to tackle the growing complexities of the movie industry when movies with sound became the thing to watch.

Jean Hagen was a hilarious antagonist as the visually-captivating yet truthfully dimwitted Lina Lamont. Her voice was so comical and really brought a humor to the movie that I wasn’t expecting.

Of course, I’m a Gene Kelly fan. The man can dance, taking us on a heartfelt story as he danced, sung, and beamed across the screen. And Debbie Reynolds, oh, it was the first movie I had ever seen starring the well-known actress and to know that she was Carrie Fisher’s mother just makes her that much more interesting.

All in all, I loved the film and would probably watch it again in the future. I’m giving this movie 95 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. It’s no An American in Paris but it is worth watching.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Zorii Bliss: A Day in Kijimi: Chapter Four

Yeah, she needed to get off Kijimi. Avoiding death in the span of a couple of hours from two different parties wasn’t exactly the kind of morning one would consider a dream life.

Suddenly, there was a barrage of blaster bolts whizzing by and assaulting the troopers behind her from the shadowy crooks of the buildings surrounding her. She looked back and saw the troopers lying face first in the snow. She turned, holstering her blasters as Gibble, a darkly masked man clad in a thick fur-lined coat, stepped forward.

“Already getting yourself into trouble?” he asked, his deep voice slightly augmented by the mask.

She shrugged. “I’m kind of off today.”

Another slightly leaner individual in a similar outfit stepped from another crook, moving toward her slowly with a sort of menacing attitude. This was Evver.

“Did you get the credits?” the person asked, their light tone not fully distinguishable between a man and woman’s voice.

Zorii regarded Evver as offended. “Of course I did.”

Gibble’s tense shoulders loosened. “Then the plan is motion.”

“I’ve got to see Babu,” Zorii said, moving forward to pass them. Gibble stopped her from doing so as he held out his hand.

“Not now. We’ve gotten word that the First Order is increasing their forces and our client is getting skittish. There’s no time to dilly-dally. You need to go to him now and get that information we need to find the First Order captain before he leaves.”

Zorii nodded. “Well then, my adventure continues.”

“Take the tunnels. You’ll be safer down there.”

She cocked her head. “I’m fine.”

Now it was his turn to cock his head. “Are you?”

She nudged him as she walked by him. “Just keep an eye out for anything suspicious.”

With that, she was off to find the client just as a cover of grey clouds covered the sun and a small flurry of snow began to descend upon the city.
