Warning: this link contains extreme amounts of epicness, including but not limited to: Roxanne Ritchi being awesome, Metro Man having an existential crisis, Megamind being a giant dweeb, and Roxanne Ritchi being awesome.

Now that you have been warned, here is a sample that doubles as a link.



As soon as I get a chunk of time to myself, you can best believe there will be icons.

Well, I am back from the conference/retreat; it went quite well. There was a lot of good networking and conversation. :)

Unfortunately I didn't have much time at all to write, so the fic will have to wait a bit longer, but here are some icons! I made this set while working on my entries for [livejournal.com profile] anakin_icontest, so they're mostly Anakin. Concept and comic art alert!

Yes, that's right folks. I finally found a non-shrink wrapped copy of The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars in Barnes & Noble and got to flip through it. And you know what that means. Misery loves company, and I am going to share my disappointment with you all.

The concept art itself is great, as usual for Star Wars. In fact, as is also typical for Star Wars, the concept art is better than the finished product. It's depressing, in a way, to look at all those great ideas and think about what might have been.

Here's what might have been: Dave Filoni's original idea for the show would have followed Ashla, a teenage Togruta padawan, and her Twi'lek Jedi master, a pair who were assigned as undercover agents on a smuggling ship, infiltrating the criminal underground. The rest of the ship's crew would have been composed of a human male smuggler (who looks much like Han Solo in the concepts), his girlfriend (seemingly of an unknown alien species), and their Gungan navigator. Obi-Wan, Anakin, Mace, etc, were slatted to have occasional cameos, but the focus of the show would have been on the smuggling crew and their two Jedi members.

What happened, you ask? Simple. Dave brought his ideas to George. And George decided that this should be a show mainly about Obi-Wan and Anakin and the battles of the Clone Wars. He did like Ashla enough to keep her around, though, so she became Ahsoka, Anakin's padawan. However, he thought her wardrobe wasn't skimpy enough, and personally insisted on the tube top costume.

Having read all of this baldly spelled out in a book that purported to be in praise of George's vision for the show, I feel I may owe Dave Filoni an apology. I've been blaming all of the epic fail in Clone Wars on him, when really, it seems, the guy to blame is George.

And, ugh, how much would I give to be able to watch Dave's original show idea? A LOT, I TELL YOU. There is almost nothing not potentially awesome about it. Smugglers? Check. Kickass Twi'lek Jedi dudes and their female Togruta padawans running around being secret agents? Check. GUNGAN SPACE PIRATES? CHECK. I mean damn.

I suppose now I will go watch the show that, unfortunately, we are stuck with instead. Expect my commentary to be even more snarky than usual?

Finally online again. :D I hope you all don't think I've been neglecting you. I've just been spending a lot of time with my family, which has really been nice. I've needed that time...

So, an after-Christmas update. Let's see. [livejournal.com profile] atanone's presents were wonderful, and yesterday I got a beautiful Christmas card from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] charmisjess. *hugs you both* Also I got the original, unaltered Star Wars trilogy on DVD, which has me very excited. :D *does happy dance*

But mostly I was just grateful to be home with my family, and to be together with all of my friends, even if we were physically hundreds or even thousands of miles apart. I know, that sounds pretty sappy, so I hope you all know what I mean. ;)

And now for something completely different!

Samples: 1. 2.

If you want them, come and claim them... )
