#ReyloFanfictionAnthology: Moonlit Reflections in Rapture

tumblr_messaging_od2bo554ss1rdpjs3_1280

The Force. It surrounds and binds Kylo Ren and Rey. It can expose their every weakness. It can conceal their very presence. It can force them to deal with circumstances that occurs in the galaxy. Between the First Order and the Resistance. It can forgive them for their most egregious sins. Most of all, the Force give them a place, and island, of solitude and peace from a tumultuous ocean of star wars and brings them under the moon and its light as a reflection of themselves.

#StarWars #RP Performance to Full Fanfiction

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 creative process was created to for fan-fiction works with a tests for audience outreach. The post is about one of many of our creative processes for the Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebels campaign.

First we write a simple script or dedicate a simple idea based on the literature we have from Lucasfilm (canon and Legends). Our activities are done privately.

GrandAdmiralThrawn_article-5-1

For this particular story, we needed to see how well our Thrawn roleplayer interacted with us and how comfortable they would be with SWAG77 roleplayers. The Thrawn RPer has had a very good independent account and has a preference for it because of real life obligations, such as a career.

Once the idea is agreed to by consensus, then we will perform within context and it is spontaneous. The setting is during the Star Wars Rebels timeline and continuity.

STORIFY is the post capture of this particular performance. It is about a visit that Thrawn will take to the planet, Eriadu (which WAS Lothal but has been changed), and Agent Kallus was being asked to set up his visit. Little does Kallus know, he is being evaluated.

Then we post process the transcripts and put them into prose story format. There will be several re-writes and substitutions and deletions. Finally we create our Archive On Our Own Story (AO3).

Star Wars: The Vernissage – Interlude II

Our works will be featured in several writing challenges, such as NaNoWriMo as well as others.

Finally, we promote our stories accordingly to all our social media platforms for the fans to enjoy.

#Thrawn In #StarWars

13680812_570079449839579_185381247147401140_n

It has been a tumultuous ~2 years for the #GetThrawnIn #StarWarsRebels campaign. We had many attacks by angry fans who felt they must control the creative concepts of Lucasfilm. Their process attacks them online through cyberharassment and bullying, as recent as Star Wars Celebration Europe toward a famous author (source).

We started out for social justice, but we learned about fine art and classical music.

We have over 90 images from Jackson Pollock’s string paintings to the recent Maria Kreyn’s “Alone Together” painting used in ABC’s “To Catch A Thief”.

Maria Kreyn’s “Alone Together”

We have built a 62 youtube playlist from classical music composers and artists that highlight story motifs that highlight essential part from all the Star Wars movies. Composers like Stravinsky and Holst. However, we have learned to love classics from Gustav Mahler and Rachmaninov.

 

The art and music components were for exposure to ask the question, what types of art and music would the character Thrawn see and hear to evaluate a culture. Based on our reading of both Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire and Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath, we discover that Thrawn chose a variety of art pieces to evaluation, most were holographic scupltures. But he had a fine appreciation for color that only 2-D paintings provide. As far as the music, he enjoy symphonies and orchestras. Strings instruments were fine, but it is never stated that within the movements of work he heard, what kind of instruments he had an affinity toward.

As far as interpretation of each piece, we did not make any. We wanted our audience to do it. Then, we discover they were woefully ignorant of fine art and classical music. Why choose those colors? Why that montage of sound? That is when we learned that Thrawn probably has synesthesia – he can see color in sound and numbers to music. He has a collection of senses that amplify when he interacts with art and music. It might be an activity of the Chiss, then again, it may just be a character trait of Thrawn and he applies his abilities with his war training and tactical strategy.

We also have an Arts and Crafts component with what we call, “Save The Ysalamiri“. These Star Wars Legends’ canon creatures, Ysalamiri, form Force Neutral bubbles in 10 meters in diameter that can stop Force Users from using their Force powers. These creatures, Ysalamiri, appear like pets of a cat-dog-iguana appearance and only lived on one planet, on an “endangered” tree. In Heir to the Empire, Thrawn discovered a way to remove Ysalamiri from their trees without killing them and use them to his advantage. In real life, we created sock puppets for family enjoyment.

Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply

Summary:

Only Captain Thrawn is able to invade and conquer Mandalore to Imperial rule. But he had to serve at a regent for Mandalore before a Moff was selected. What he discovered during his rule, is they Mandalorians, were more creative and inventive that what was let on by the rest of the galaxy. He took one Mandalorian child under his tutelage and taught her art and its interpretation, something forbidden by the Mandalorians and the Chiss, which he was.
