QI’RA: Chapter Thirty-Seven

The Sword

T-38 was nervous. More nervous than she had been for a long time. The Emperor wasn’t someone to be trifled with and he didn’t summon visitors very often. That made his audience with Qi’ra all the more intriguing.

When Qi’ra had left the room she had looked back at T-38 with legitimate fear in her gaze. At that moment T-38 wanted to jump from her chair and demand to join Qi’ra’s side with her audience with The Emperor. Unfortunately, she knew if she did, she would have disgraced Qi’ra.

So, she was forced to wait for Qi’ra’s return and Moff Arnim took this chance as the perfect opportunity to learn Crimson Dawn’s secrets through her and Nienye in seemingly harmless conversation. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Thirty-Seven

QI’RA: Chapter Thirty-Four

The Meeting

Nienye stood in the lobby of the building the Imperial Captain had offered them to stay in during their visit to Coruscant, his gaze roaming the throng of individuals walking through the area to their various destinations.

He fixed the high collar of his dark blue and golden tunic, an especially fancy garment that was more fit for nighttime life rather than going to the Senate Building. But he wanted to make an impression on the political figures of the Empire, considering that he may never get the chance to be in the presence of such powerful people again.

The Ten Ugliest Deaths in ‘Star Wars’

I found this post I wrote a couple of years ago and because it felt humorous I decided to reshare it. Enjoy!

At first thought, Star Wars is a very family-friendly franchise. There is never too much violence, zero over-the-top sexual themes (well, besides the adult implications between Kylo and Rey, lol) and very mild cursing. That’s part of the reason why these movies are so much fun to watch. Whether you’re 5 or 85 you can enjoy these films to the height of enjoyment and never have to worry about any suggestive content. But, while Star Wars is clearly made for the masses it does contain its memorable moments–specifically deaths–that can leave a chill down your spine. That’s what this post is about. Which ten deaths have I found to be the worst in Star Wars? Here’s my list.

10. Boba Fett

Boba Fett

Boba Fett was easily one of the coolest characters in the original Star Wars trilogy. Unfortunately, he didn’t last very long and ended up suffering the fate of being eaten over a thousand years in the belly of a Sarlaac. That’s nightmarish.

I’m Still Sad about ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

The Rise of Skywalker has been out for nearly eight weeks and I still feel hollow. Yes, absolutely hollow. I thought I would get over it. I thought after several weeks I would forgive and forget.

I haven’t forgiven or forgotten…yet.

The Rise of Skywalker, with every week, that passes, reminds me just how badly Abrams brought this story to an end. And what hurts the most is Rose’s minuscule role in the film.

She was one of my favorite things about The Last Jedi. Her relationship with Finn was beautiful. Her sweetness was infectious. Her story was unique. And she was the first major Asian female character to appear in a Star Wars movie.

The Rise of Skywalker made her not exist. Continue reading I’m Still Sad about ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ May Introduce Palpatine At His Most Powerful

While going through old posts I have written I ran into this post I wrote before The Rise of Skywalker came out. And seeing it, I had to share it again because it’s actually hilarious. So, on that note, check this out.

The Rise of Skywalker trailer was packed with dazzling imagery and riveting voiceovers that imbued the trailer with emotion and chill-inducing happiness. But, beyond the very obvious things, we may observe in the trailer, I have discovered a very subtle yet potentially very important detail in this trailer.

Throughout certain sections of the trailer, we see lightning pervading the clips,

whether we’re talking about the clip that depicts the throne room,

Rey’s Lineage Revealed: Why Am I Still Unsatisfied?

Since The Force Awakens, there’s been one searing question that fans of the new trilogy couldn’t help clamoring for; who are Rey’s parents? At the end of The Force Awakens, the two most popular theories saw Rey as Luke’s daughter or as a Solo. Those theories were aggressively debunked as Rian Johnson changed gears and told all of us that Rey was the daughter of “nobodies” who had abandoned her for drinking money. But I knew this was a cruel ploy Kylo used to try to get her to join him. I even wrote a post about it a couple of years ago.

I Have The Proof That Kylo Ren Didn’t Tell the Full Truth About Rey’s Parents

I was saying it all throughout last year. Rey was a Palpatine. There was nothing that could convince me otherwise. So when I watched The Rise of Skywalker and Kylo told her, in a specifically momentous point of the movie, that she was Rey Palpatine, I wasn’t surprised, nor was I that happy either.

The concept of Rey’s connection to Palpatine was a brilliant idea in theory if done correctly, but the way J.J Abrams handled the reveal and the following storyline surrounding this tale of lineage felt a bit…if I’m being honest, corny.
