QI’RA: Chapter Twenty-Three

Maul’s Praise

Qi’ra stood in a long corridor aboard her ship, Night Shade, her hands clasped behind her back. She was now clad in a simple black tunic with matching pants and boots, her gleaming jewelry adding a bit of flair to her outfit. In the room behind her, T-38 was being tended to, and in front of her sat a window displaying the blue streaks of hyperspace.

They were heading back to Polaris, their retrieved cargo of coaxium stowed away in the ship’s belly. That was the good news. The bad news; many of her female-guard personnel had perished in the endeavor and T-38 had almost been yet another number to the casualties. Qi’ra wanted to pretend that she didn’t care, that it was a price worth paying knowing that the mission had indeed been successful, but Qi’ra knew the truth. Her recklessness nearly caused all of their lives and she knew, deep down, this would be the outcome. She had simply chosen Crimson Dawn, and in essence, Maul, over the people who served her every day. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Twenty-Three

‘Clouds’: Prepare To Have Tissues at the Ready

Okay, I was expecting Clouds to be a sappy but ultimately pretty corny original Disney+ movie that would pluck at my heartstrings but leave me kind of bored at the same time. I was wrong.

Clouds is a heartfelt, well-written, emotional film about a teenage boy named Zach Sobriech who has terminal cancer and decides to make the most of his last days by trying to bring joy to peoples’ lives. He does that by writing and performing songs with his best friend, Sammy Brown, and together they stirred the heart of the nation with their hit single, “Clouds.”

Throwback Friday: Could and Should Steve Rogers Make an Appearance in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’?

Oh, the end of Avengers: Endgame is an emotional wrecker. One of the best parts of the entire movie comes in the film’s final minutes as we are introduced to an elderly Steve Rogers who thus gives his shield to Sam Wilson for him to be Captain America.

It’s an impactful moment that’ll bring tears to the eyes and really sets up fans’ excitement for the upcoming Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but it leaves one to wonder, will we see Steve Rogers again in the series?

Rogers is now in the same role that Peggy had in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Steve is elderly, his wife has passed, and now he’s got nothing to do but watch his friends save the world without him.

I don’t see Sam or Bucky not going to see him again in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier but, if Chris Evans’ contract is truly expired, does that mean that like in Captain America: Civil War, we’ll return to the story after Steve Rogers’ natural passing. Will there be a funeral that manages to unite Sam, Bucky, and Sharon Carter together as they mourn the passing of a very great friend? And how many tissues will I need for this scene?
