Anakin - RotS, Anakin, Anakin - black & white

SW Ficlet: out of the desert (sand and sky) [PG; Vader, Luke]

Title: out of the desert (sand and sky)
Author: Gwinna
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: PG/K+
Characters: Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker
Genre: Gen, metaphorical
Summary: Darth Vader dreams he is in the desert.

A/N: This was written in response to a poetry prompt; the piece of poetry is included at the end of the story. Also, I really need to learn how to write something longer than a ficlet.

Anakin - RotS, Anakin, Anakin - black & white

SW ficlet: how to be a perfect jedi (PG; Anakin)

Title: how to be a perfect jedi
Author: Gwinna
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: PG/K+
Characters: Anakin, mentions of Obi-Wan and Palpatine
Genre: Gen, plotless introspection
Summary: Anakin hates that Obi-Wan never gets angry.

A/N: So, after eight years of writer’s block, I’ve managed to write a fanfic for the first time. Well, more like a ficlet. It’s super short and far from perfect, but I’m just going to go ahead and post it and hopefully move on to the next thing. Seriously, you have no idea how happy I am to have written even some trivial thing like this.

no one is sorry for being who they areCollapse )

i find your lack of faith disturbing, Vader

some self-indulgent grumbling + Star Wars recs

I recced Star Wars fics (and one vid) at crack_van during the month of February. Unfortunately, even though I spent all day February 29th writing the last two recs I had planned, and actually did finish them before midnight, my posting access had already been taken away. :( Of course it was my own fault for procrastinating, but that doesn't make it any less annoying (it might even be more annoying). Oh well, I suppose I should look on the bright side: this means that the next time I sign up, I'll already have two recs written and ready to go.

Anyway, here are the links to my recs:

( Food Scandal by Malicean )

( Absolution by Leia Naberrie )

( VID REC: In the End by TinkleFilms )

( Dangerous History by MaraLSky )


Bonus Harry/Pansy fic that I recced during free flying month at crack_broom way back when:

grand opening of my icon community

Since I've started making icons on a more regular basis, I've created a community to post them in. The reason I'm not just posting them here is because I'll probably make icon posts more frequently than non-icon posts, so if I didn't separate them out people might start thinking this was an icon journal. And as I do still want to post about other, non-icon things here when the mood strikes me (even if that doesn't happen very often), my icons will be posted at galazygraphics, and this will remain my everything-except-graphics journal.

Anyway, there's not much there yet, but go check out galazygraphics!

Most of these icons haven't been posted yet, so think of this as a sneak preview of what's to come. :)

Sidious, Palpatine, Palpatine - most evil

According to George Lucas, Palpatine actually has good intentions??

So, I was rewatching the Star Wars prequels recently, and it occurred to me that I had never listened to the audio commentary for Revenge of the Sith. Accordingly I went and did so, and it was very interesting, but there was one thing George Lucas said which struck me as rather bizarre and incredible. I quote:

One of the issues in all of this is, that bad guys think they're good, and Lord Sidious thinks he's bringing peace to the galaxy, because there's so much corruption and confusion and chaos going on, and that now he's going to be able to straighten everything out, which may be true, but the price the galaxy's going to have to pay for it is way too much. -- George Lucas, RotS commentary

All I can say is, if that is what Lucas was trying to convey, he failed signally. I have never once considered that Palpatine might genuinely have wanted to bring peace to the galaxy. It never even occurred to me as a possible interpretation of his character. Nor have I ever come across such an interpretation in either fanfic or profic (admittedly I haven't read much profic, but since I like Palpatine I have read a decent amount of fanfic about him).

LJ Holiday Promotion

There's probably no point in posting this, since it's unlikely anyone will see it here, but the most recent news post reminded me that I still have nine $10-off-a-year-of-paid-time coupons to give away. I don't know anyone who could use one, so I am willing to give them to anyone who asks, even if I don't know you. I can send them out until Jan. 15 and they can be redeemed until Jan. 31. So, if you want one, let me know.

I got a paid account at the beginning of this year. I now have 105 icons, and it's STILL NOT ENOUGH.

thoughts on "Hostage Crisis"

For once I got to see an episode of the Clone Wars when it aired! So I thought I would write up my thoughts. And it really is just random thoughts, not a formal review.

~ While I was glad to see more Anakin/Padme interaction, I thought it was rather stilted and not very well done. I was a bit surprised that they had Anakin come right out and say that his love for Padme is more important to him than his duty to the Jedi Order and the galaxy so early on. Also, the set-up for Anakin's losing his lightsaber doesn't really make much sense. I thought that, though their marriage is a secret, Anakin and Padme are friends openly, and as such there's no need for Anakin to hide when Bail comes in. The way RotS makes it look, Anakin hangs out in Palpatine's office all the time; surely it wouldn't be strange for him to visit Padme as well. He could even have pretended he was there on official business. And there was plenty of time for Padme to slip Anakin his lightsaber. Or she could have left it on her desk when she left; Bail had already turned away.

more ramblings aheadCollapse )

Naruto Fic Rec List

I have decided to post a list of Naruto fanfiction recs, mostly for my own benefit. I haven't read as much Naruto fanfiction as I would like (and certainly haven't reviewed as many of these as I would like), but these are my personal favorite fics. In other words, this list is subjective.

The title and author of the fic will be followed by the characters or pairing involved and the rating. The stories are loosely organized into groups by character, but otherwise they are in no particular order. I list the rating as the author has listed it, so the rating system used will vary. Ratings of R/M or higher will be in red. If a story is incomplete, it will be marked as a WIP.

rec list under cutCollapse )
