OMG HER HAIR MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE THIS WAY.
May the Fourth (be with you)!
Yeah yeah there’s a million Slave Leia drawings but does no one care that she went in disguised as a badass bounty hunter?? Kick ass princess.

Ten reasons I like to imagine Luke as an aromantic asexual.

random Star Wars thoughts time
When you think about it, it doesn’t make sense at all for the whole “Jedi attachments” thing to automatically equal romance like so much of the universe’s material (and in turn, the fans) treats it, and not just as a critical fandom thought thing—just look at the original trilogy.
Luke went against the tenants of the Code in two major events, one which was nearly his undoing, and one that was his completion; neither had anything to do with romance, but both had everything to do with love:
The first was when he left his training to try to rescue Han and Leia from Cloud City—love for friends. Attachment.
The second was when he resisted the destiny of having to kill his father to try to save him instead—love for family. Attachment.
Both were perfect in the scope of the story for what this part of the Code meant; they were immensely dangerous and risky to their cause as a whole, without ever having to stray into the tired old Forbidden [Romantic] Love trope. It played with the themes of the power and danger of love without acting like there was only one kind…only for much of the rest of the material to promptly forget that. And more’s the loss for it.
I’m not going to shut up about wanting women, nonwhite people, and queer people in Star Wars and in general, all media.
Back to my ongoing mantra: the world is not 80% straight white men and we need to see our media looking like the world we live in.
