Ahem. So I’m a fan of the series and of Star Wars in general, and of background Jedi ESPECIALLY. So naturally, I decided to take this time to pay tribute the best way I know how: By focusing on minorsupporting characters and writing overly in-depthhead-canon about them!
Huh. You’d think I’d be putting these on YouTube or something, I mean, that IS what it’s for, right?
Without further ado, I present a Star Wars fanfiction that is related to an iconic Japanese samurai film in name only! And, as opposed to writing a story for a picture, this time it’s finding a picture for a story!
You CAN, in fact, tell a good story that has…HAPPY RELATIONSHIPS.
Once upon a time, there were two fictional characters who were born under an unlucky star. For the fates known as The Executive Studio and their very own Creator had decreed that their lives would be intertwined in the most horrific of fates: To be locked into a romantic subplot.
After many a travail, first struggling to come to terms with it, then finally confessing it, then surviving the Extragalactic War and the resulting Time Disjunction, then crossing the boundaries of mind, body, and spirit, then splitting up over The Hoagie Incident, they found their way back to each other and lived happily ever after.
…WHAT?! HAPPILY EVER AFTER?!
NO! THIS CANNOT BE! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-
And if you’re a fictional character, well, love actually…sucks. If it’s not the love triangles, the deaths, or the fact that fictional characters are emotional wrecks, it’s the executive team deciding a breakup will boost viewership.
