All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: RPGs, comic books, Firefly, RPGs, Community, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, RPGs, Avengers, Doctor Who, And RPGs. And comic books. And RPGS. Not a "fandom" blog, unless D&D alignments count as a fandom.
Darth Maul - Maybe I rank him highest just for being the only saving grace in Episode I, but he was just so awesome. I mean, I’m not sure kids today understand the jaw-dropping awe-inducing collective gasp we all made when, after waiting for anew Star Wars for almost 20 years, we saw that first Phantom Menace trailer and all of a sudden.
The horns, the face tattoos, the light saber…. he’s just amazing.
Darth Vader - I do feel a little guilty putting the original in second place, but I promise it’s not by much. That James Earl Jones toe-curling voice, the ominous black outfit, the vaguely skull-like helmet. Yeah, he’s amazing.
Darth Krayt - because going from a Tusken Raider chief to ultimate badass of the galaxy is pretty ambitious, plus his outfit is super-sweet.
Darth Revan - I never got into KOTOR, so I just don’t know that much about him.
Darth Tyranus is dead last because I just wasn’t ever really impressed with him. I mean, Christopher Lee is an awesome bad guy, but Dooku just felt like he had escaped a 1950s horror movie. Every time he opened his mouth I was more inclined to giggle than to actually be afraid.
After visiting my hometown for a wedding, I am proud to say that my parents finally let me have their copy of the original Star Wars trilogy.
That’s right folks. I don’t care if it is on VHS, Han Shot First and Luke remains blissfully unaware of Hayden Christensen’s existence.
"come sit with us," star trek fans say to their star wars brethren, whilst we all gather for warmth around the flaming pile of shit that is the star wars vii casting.
if anything can bring trek and wars fans together, it’s the absolute messes that are the new generation of movies
It’s almost like everyone hates what JJ Abrams does to beloved franchises. I mean com’on, did you see Mission Impossible 3?
"There’s only one female in the new cast!!" Star Wars fans cry out in disbelief and anguish. Slowly the Star Trek fans turn around, their faces ashen…haunted..
"We know", they chant together in perfect harmony. "We know..”
They take the Star Wars fans in a tight embrace, whose forms are wracked with hiccuping sobs. The Star Trek fans shush them, and softly start to hum the Original Series theme song.
They huddle together for warmth, and wait for the lens flares to descend.
