Still on a SW high, and considering writing some SW later, if I can… - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Still on a SW high, and considering writing some SW later, if I can possibly channel Anakin or Leia again.

Meanwhile, crossposted from a_p_'s boards,

Top Ten Reasons Why Hayden Belongs at the end of RotJ

10. At least Anakin has been that age. He never made it to Sebastian Shaw's.
9. When the saga is watched as a whole, the connection will be clearer.
8. He's returned to his "state of grace," which is represented in the Hayden Christensen version.
7. At any rate, S. Shaw, however undeniably brilliant in the unmasking scene, was only in one scene and in heavy make-up. He's far less recognizable as Anakin out of the make-up than Hayden Christensen is.
6. David Prowse and James Earl Jones were never seen as the character at all, because of the mask, so they wouldn't be good choices. And they're too old.
5. Jake Lloyd has probably changed too much to be recognizable, so he's not good either. (I think he should appear in an Ep3 Easter egg, as a padawan or something, since he wouldn't recognizably be Anakin anymore.)
4. Teh Pretty. 'Nuff said.
3. It's Uncle George's movie, and it's what he wanted to do.
2. Jar Jar may still be alive at the end, so they had to go for a secondary cause for number one, which is...

1. Annoys the heck out of prequel bashers.

I know, sort of repetitive, but I'm liking this change better every time I think about it.

Maybe I'll dig up one of my unfinished SW tales and work on it.

The change to Hayden at the end of RotJ doesn't bother me.

But I am kind of bothered with the changes from a historical perspective. It's getting harder and harder to see the original versions. For example, it's not that I mind the new celebration scene at the end of RotJ; I just don't like not having access to "Yub Nub" anymore.

Now, that's one I can understand. I'd have loved it if there were another disc that had all the altered scenes in their original forms, for the archive's sake.

I pretty much agree with your comment, but...could you please explain your icon?

It's based on a line from babb_chronicles, which features silly or just bad excerpts from Harry Potter fanfics. It's funny stuff.

Yay, more SW fic from Fern!

Yeah! You tell those prequel-bashers! I'm getting a little tired of them... I saw the prequels first (I still can't believe it) and love them just as much as the original trilogy. Good reasons! At least, I agree with them....

See, this is why I go on the 'net. To find out random stuff I wouldn't otherwise have ever known despite being interested in it.

But I must say, despite being only mildly interested in SW, I wholeheartedly approve of that change. It's one I always hoped they'd make someday - it just fits so much better.

And of course you should write more SW. You should write more, period. We'll read it. :P

I totally agree. Haden is teh pretty. :-)

And yes, you should write more. You are one of my fav fanfic authors and I am scandalized by the lack of ficcy goodness out there. You must write more, if only for the good of humanity. :-D
