Star Wars x LOTR? AKA Clara Has Cracked

Star Wars x LOTR? AKA Clara Has Cracked

Hello my lovlies. As a multi-fandom fan, a skill I have been forced to become adept at is making connections between totally unrelated elements in fandoms and analyzing them; sort of like late last night when I realized the lines from a certain elvish prophecy from Lord of the Rings corresponded pretty nicely with some [...]

If the Coronavirus Doesn’t Kill You, Thinking about TROS Probably Will

If the Coronavirus Doesn’t Kill You, Thinking about TROS Probably Will

Has the Coronavirus got you down? Never fear, because while you're trapped in your house hoarding toilet paper and bathing in hand sanitizer, Herminoie and I are back with a joint post, aka some late TROS content review! *throws confetti* Hermione: So. Here we are. The Rise of Skywalker was…*deep sigh*…a mixed bag. Coming out [...]

Debunking Finnrey: The Star Wars Ship that Never Was and Never Will Be

Debunking Finnrey: The Star Wars Ship that Never Was and Never Will Be

Greetings all! Let us delve into the P&P Book Thieve's dark archive of Post We've Written But Never Published, most notably several more Star Wars posts that we wrote amid our Reylo craze circa winter 2017. Obviously, we still ship Reylo and all that, but pre-TLJ, we were borderline fanatical in our obsession and it's [...]

The Four Step Star Wars Romance Formula: How Anidala and LeiaxHan Prove REYLO

The Four Step Star Wars Romance Formula: How Anidala and LeiaxHan Prove REYLO

We only have a few more months until The Rise of Skywalker FINALLY comes out! I know at this point the fate of Reylo is pretty much sealed, but I still have the aforementioned amount of time to frantically write meta and try to win over the antis to the Reylo side. A rather odd [...]

Everything Wrong with Anidala

Everything Wrong with Anidala

The dangers of overhyping franchises cannot be overstated, so while the hype and hysteria builds for the long-awaited release of the conclusion to the Star Wars “Skywalker Saga” this Christmas, I think there’s no better time to examine an unfortunate byproduct of yet another overhyping episode in the Star Wars franchise. That's right, I'm talking [...]

You’re Not Alone/Neither Are You {A Mini Reylo Fic}

You’re Not Alone/Neither Are You {A Mini Reylo Fic}

{By Hermione Montrose} Occasionally I write fanfics. The one below is actually more of a rewrite, because while The Last Jedi novelization was quite pro-Reylo, parts were rather passionless. The hand touch scene, for instance, was written in probably the briefest way possible, and it was utterly devoid of any sort of romantic or sexual [...]

Why Kylo Ren is Getting So Much More than Darth Vader’s “Redemption Arc”: Ben Solo’s Subtle TFA Characterization

Why Kylo Ren is Getting So Much More than Darth Vader’s “Redemption Arc”: Ben Solo’s Subtle TFA Characterization

Alternatively titled: Ben the Precious Porg Why Hello!!!!! Even after the events of TLJ, some people still think that Ben Solo is going to make a full turn to the dark side in Episode IX. This is actually quite ridiculous, because if you look at Ben’s character and how it compares to Darth Vader's, you'll [...]

Is Rey Still a Mary Sue After TLJ?: The Secret Behind Rey’s Flawed TFA Characterization

Is Rey Still a Mary Sue After TLJ?: The Secret Behind Rey’s Flawed TFA Characterization

The new Star Wars trilogy has gotten mixed receptions since the 2015 release of The Force Awakens, but if there’s one thing most fans and non-fans seem to agree on, it's that Rey is a Mary Sue and TFA has a strong feminist undercurrent promoted by the ‘all-powerful’ female protagonist. I, however, don’t think Rey [...]
