The Last Jedi Doesn't Care What You Think About Star Wars
"But with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, director Rian Johnson wants to burn Star Wars to the ground. Not because he harbors ill will toward it, but because he loves it."

"And so the Star Wars franchise, revived for modern times with a spunky, hopeful ethic that champions diversity and community, requires an evil that is more complex and more conflicted."

“This is Not Going to Go the Way You Think”: The Last Jedi Is Subversive AF, and I Am Here for It | Bitter Gertrude
Now, in early 21st century America, the villain is an unstable young white man who had every privilege in life, yet feels like the world has wronged him. Unbeknownst to his family, he finds and communicates with a faraway mentor who radicalizes him with a horrific, authoritarian ideology. By the time his family finds out, it’s too late, and now this unstable young white man has this horrific ideology, access to far too many weapons, and the desperate desire to demolish anything that he perceives as a threat– or is told to perceive as a threat.

[Star Wars: The Force Awakens] till_owlyglass - Emails just aren't safe. We should hide state secrets deep in the story parts of recipe blogs. - Kylo Ren/Hux
concept: a whole fic where one of the characters is a food blogger and it’s formatted like online recipes

the whole story is told in through the prologues before you actually get to the recipe, so you’ll have someone telling you about their wild night or meet cute or whatever else and then out of nowhere go anyway here’s some brownies.

(Modern AU; not TLJ-compliant.)

[Star Wars: The Last Jedi] callmelyss - For Something Less Unlovely - Kylo Ren/Hux
Hux almost overlooks it, crouched, opening the drawers of the bedside table one by one. Thinks it’s just a piece of cloth covering something more precious or damning. But it's familiar, the fabric in his hand, the sheen of it, the weight, and he pauses, straightening.

It’s the uniform of a First Order officer.

Hux goes snooping in Ren's rooms; he finds more than he bargained for.

Disney just dropped a trailer for its new Star Wars Resistance show | Ars Technica
Set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens , the show will follow the adventures of Kazuda Xiono (voiced by Christopher Sean), a young pilot in the resistance tasked with gathering intelligence on the First Order. Xiono gets his orders from the Poe Dameron—played by Oscar Isaac—and will be helped in his mission by everyone's new favorite astromech droid, BB-8. The first episode takes place on the Colossus, a giant fighter base floating above the surface on an ocean planet in the outer rim, and the show looks set to feature plenty of aerial combat. As we detailed in July , that show is being resurrected for a new season that will appear in 2019 on Disney's planned over-the-top streaming service. Luckily we don't have to wait as long to see this new show, which uses a distinctive anime-inspired style that— like almost everything else Star Wars other than Rogue One and maybe Solo —is obviously meant to appeal to children.

Rec: [Star Wars] Water, Water Everywhere (The Albatross Remix) by reenajenkins
Summary: When you grow up in a desert, you learn not to take water for granted.

Rec Snippet: Reccer Notes: Reenajenkins’ matter of fact delivery suits this narration-heavy character study perfectly. Her usual sparse, conversational style unexpectedly pulls out the physicality of movement in this, all the longing, the regret, and fear that this story sees Luke experience. The emotional pitch of the storytelling is just right to pull me in, and the hook at the end always brings me to tears.

[Star Wars: The Force Awakens] hollycomb - Somewhere in the Half-Light - Kylo Ren/Hux
Ren makes plans to spend his rest cycle wrecking Hux's ass. Hux approves Ren's ass-wrecking request and prepares accordingly. They get nine-tenths of the way toward their shared goal when duty calls.

[Star Wars: The Last Jedi] gaolcrowofmandos - that strain, again (with a dying fall) - Kylo Ren/Hux
After the coup and the loss on Crait, Hux must come to grips with his new position. Good thing he's completely buried his feelings for Kylo Ren, right?
“Of course,” says Ren, and then - as if nothing has changed since the ill-fated droid mission, as if Starkiller hasn’t collapsed into the void, as if Snoke isn’t dead, and there isn’t a ring of bruises around Hux’s neck - Ren uncurls his fist and covers Hux’s fingers with his own.
