QI’RA: Chapter Twelve

A Plan Gone Wrong

To say the members of The Shadow Collective was fuming was an understatement. Qi’ra had never seen the crime bosses so riled up.

Everything had been going well. Her guests arrived downstairs where a Twi-lek entertainer by the name of Suyti Mooras and her band called the Galactic Snubbles provided dance-worthy music. There were dignitaries and bodyguards, entourages of bounty hunters and sketchy looking smugglers, Imperial snobs, and crooked senators who made their money off of shady deals.

T-38 despised these conventions, for she wasn’t a very social person. She let her actions, those usually being violent, speak for her rather than her silver tongue but she managed to get by.

Thursday ‘Star Wars’ Story Time

My sister and I are avid Star Wars fans. We’re also storytellers. My sister has now combined Art and storytelling by conveying, through storyboards, an alternate version of the final scene of The Force Awakens and the entirety of The Last Jedi.

And most importantly, it’s another testament to my sister’s ever-growing skill as an artist and I am just such a fan.

That Unforgettable Moment in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

If you’re an avid reader of my blog you will know that I pretty much despise The Rise of Skywalker for practically everything that it is. The story makes absolutely no sense in context with the Skywalker saga, Rey’s Palpatine return fills like a swing from left field and possesses no weight in the actual movie, and the film’s climactic battle on Exegol feels like a joke.

But…despite my annoyance with this movie and about 90% of its narrative choices, there is one moment that feels perfect and I wouldn’t change for the world. And that is the Poe-flashlight scene.
