Old West Luke and Leia! I imagine Leia would be a Mexican princess of sorts…
Coworker/buddy Bridget (CHECK HER OUT) drew up Luke and Leia by way of a Western setting, and badass latina Leia is something I would like to savor for a bit. Kiiiiinda kicking myself that I didn’t think of this first.
“I am not a committee!”
Luke and Leia: together again.
#i just love these scenes #though i think the separation of the twins is kind of skeevy #i don’t see how yoda or obi-wan or bail had any right to decide the twins’ future anyway #they’re not orphans #and besides they have an aunt and grandparents #and the way these three unrelated men sideline leia from her heritage forever is particularly uncool
Thank you for saying this. It’s not out of character (for Obi-Wan and Yoda, at least; I’m not sure what Bail’s excuse is, seeing as he wasn’t raised to disregard the value of family bonds), but it’s super skeevy and if the narrative wasn’t going to call any of them on it I sure wish fic would a little more often. There’s no way the Naberries wouldn’t put two and two together once Anakin Skywalker’s kid/s, conveniently with no known mother and the exact same age as Padme’s unborn child would’ve been, became notorious public figures.
“She is LEIA ORGANA, a rebel princess. The fear in her eyes slowly gives way to anger as the muted crushing sounds of the approaching stormtroopers grow louder. She steps from her hiding place and blasts two troopers with her laser pistol…”
- THE STAR WARS: FROM THE ADVENTURES OF LUKE STARKILLER, THIRD DRAFT (August 1975)
Daily Doodle 06/30: Two Skywalkers. :)
When I was little I loved the idea of Luke and Leia going off and having adventures all over the galaxy. It would have been neat to see them learning how to be siblings as two adults.
even a reference to this having happened is all I want from Episode VII.
I’ve written Avatar in the Star Wars ‘verse in varying ways, but what I really want is Star Wars in the Avatar verse. I mentioned some vague ideas before, but what I’d really to either see or get around to writing someday is this:
- The Order of the White Lotus is highly visible and active as a body of warriors - originally they were neutral peacekeepers from all four nations, and guardians of the Avatar. Now they’ve largely evolved into defenders/diplomats for the Fire Nation. They also take command of all benders they find as young children and train them in the bending arts and traditions of the Order, but plenty are never found and have to make their own way.
- Qui-Gon Jinn is an earthbender and unorthodox Lotus warrior. Through some various adventures involving his apprentice Obi-Wan (an airbender) and the (disguised, non-bender) Southern Water Tribe chieftainess Padmé, he discovers that the Avatar, believed to be vanished from the earth for generations, has reincarnated as a young boy named Anakin Skywalker. Anakin is a suspiciously golden-eyed slave in the Earth Kingdom.
