Yeahhh it’s finally (almost) here! :D If I’ve been a bit quiet lately, it’s because I’ve been buried in work and classes I’ve been busy preparing for Anidala ship week - it’s been lots of fun getting it together with the lovely matereya and kazaikos, and I can’t wait for this entire week of fanworks!

Hiya, I find your art amazing, and I absolutely adore the AUs... I've always wanted to see a star wars ATLA crossover, but haven't really found any... (I saw your picture, btw, phenomenal) do you know if any exist?

Aww, thank you so much anon! ;A; I have a whole bunch of random SW/ATLA scenes that are lying around on my forever-unfinished WIP pile (thank you for reminding me! I am the actual worst at finishing any ideas…), but I know Matereya has drawn an awesome Zuko/Star Wars crossover and this SW/Legend of Korra reference that is actually perfection!

One of my favourite parts of Winter Soldier was seeing Steve and Natasha disguised as hipster dorks. (welcome to 21st century fashion, Cap! ;))

Another one inspired by Shorelle’s Rebel AU because it is so cute.

Star Wars modern detective AU
I&#8217;ve been really terrible with drawing SW recently because I&#8217;ve had True Detective on the brain&#8230; Solution? Anakin and Obi-Wan as crime-solving, dysfunctional partners in a detective AU!
I mean, they could even keep their nicknames as &#8220;The Negotiator&#8221; and &#8220;The Hero With No Fear&#8221; here ;D And they&#8217;d have the good cop/bad cop thing going on during interrogations - although Obi-Wan constantly has to curb Anakin&#8217;s unconventionally violent tendencies&#8230; (&#8220;Hey man, I can&#8217;t control him. You should probably tell us the thing.&#8221;)

so after going through your star wars tag (several times) and seeing as how they posted it on netflix, i decided to watch TCW. i always thought it was a dorky show (ok if im being realistic i used to think that of SW in general. i grew up and ya know, watched it) and WOW.... did not expect it to be that witty. or that well written. great show 10/10 would suggest for the star wars geek in us all. and i still want a lightsaber for the record.

YASSS I’m so glad you checked out TCW and enjoyed it! :D I was really pleasantly surprised and impressed by it when I started watching too, the character development and story arcs and foreshadowing are all just done sO WELL, and the animation is gorgeous and just, ahhhhh. 10/10 indeed WOULD RECOMMEND for anyone who’s interested in more of the Star Wars verse! \( )/

and yep I totally feel you with wanting a lightsaber :D even if I would probably end up accidentally dropping it on my foot if I ever got one

so I just finished reading the Thrawn Trilogy and had to do a thing because wow Grand Admiral Thrawn was really great
I really appreciated how he was basically the exact opposite of Vader, yet made an incredibly badass antagonist and by the end I just wanted to see him continue throwing his military prowess against the New Republic and treating his subordinates with reasonable working conditions and holding Art Appreciation Thursdays
WE COULD HAVE HAD IT AALLLLLLL I mean what even was that ending sure it was fitting but STILL

star wars pirate AU a.k.a.
"pirates of the kessel run: curse of the millenium pearl"

so I was listening to Davy Jones’ theme for hours, and went “hey this reminds me of a sad, nautical mash-up of Across the Stars and the Imperial March”… then “hey, Anakin/Vader is basically Davy Jones, Captain of the Flying Dutchman Executor” and then this AU spawned in my brain. and He’s A Pirate = the Force theme and Two Hornpipes (Tortuga) = the Star Wars Cantina?? the parallels are based more on personalities/roles, ignore family relations :P

also I just wanted to try completely reversing the environment of the Anakin vs Obi-Wan final duel… (not that typhoons and giant space kraken are much of an improvement, ahaha)

Nerd on:

Star Wars is a myth. It’s an unusual myth, in that its first incarnation was recorded, but it’s based on the same principles as—and, most importantly, serves the same functions as—most other myths around the world, albeit slightly interpreted through the lens of the Heroic Myth Joseph Campbell came up with\analyzed.

So yes, translating it into anything makes sense. Fanfic makes sense. Any thought exercise about it makes sense—because this is one of the truly American mythologies out there.

/nerd off

Sorry for the reblog, but this is really cool commentary – I’ve noticed that Star Wars seems to fit/work well with a particularly wide range of genre and story AUs, and this is a really interesting point.
