Not really. Life just got way too busy for me to do any actual writing on here.

Some people post things, but "active" isn't the word I'd use to describe it.

The guidelines are basically just "be nice." And I still check in from time to time. I'd love to start writing something, but not really all that interested in writing by myself. ><

Probably my first post here in a millennium. I kind lost interest when schooling started to be important and other things popped up in my life. I also believe JohnL leaving contributed to that. Didn't really have the energy or time at that point to continue, and I didn't know where to pick up the pieces. Looked like there were some ideas floating around don't really know how that went? I think the only thing I've used in my other works when I started to roleplay again a few years ago with other's was Tal-Dora (mainly) and John Stoeger to a lesser degree. Didn't really flesh out Tal-Dora and John Stoeger on Exodus they kinda died when John left. I think John convinced me to join here from Facebook wow over a decade ago now since it's 2022.

I might check in more regularly but don't really see myself writing here again unfortunately. Pryde's right not really interesting when you're writing by yourself, and obviously you could start something but how long till you get a reply to continue the story ect.

I'm trying to get back into things, but after my last post life kind of took an unexpected turn. I'm waiting for personal stuff to calm down a bit before I try and push forward more with my unfinished stories. The motivation and inspiration was there for a moment, but afterwards it kind of fluttered away with aforementioned life stuff.

I’m convinced 90% of adulthood is telling oneself “I’ll get to it next week/month when I’m sure things will have calmed down. I’ll *totally* have the bandwidth then…” every day until we die.

I've checked in on this place over the years but sadly this time it rather looks like it's in its death throes. It's a shame, but perhaps an inevitability, given next year SWE would have been going for 20 years and prior to that it began on the old Star Wars Galaxies RPG boards, so for many of us it's already been over 20 years.

I don't write much nowadays, I want to... but just can't find the energy. Who knows, maybe I'll try and write a swan song for this place. Anything is possible...

This. It's been ages since I wrote anything Star Wars.

Honestly, the canon reset and sequel trilogy was painful for the avid fandom of my youth and it was hard to get back into. At this point I'm loving Star Wars TV and ignoring the rest.

While I enjoyed many parts of TRoS, overall, it wasn't a good movie. We were all active to see my thoughts on the first two in that trilogy. I've seen the Mandalorian seasons, but not Boba Fett. I'm waiting for Andor to finish before starting. I got through 4/6 episodes of Kenobi and halfway through I realized it was going to be more about that Inquisitor and Leia than Kenobi. Additionally, I felt the people writing this really didn't know much about the canon, new or otherwise. Which saddened me, as the Kenobi show was the one thing I was most looking forward to seeing.

I keep seeing canceled projects from Lucasfilm and it does not give me much hope. While Kathleen Kennedy has had some hits, she has a lot of misses too. Overall, they need someone like Feige there who can balance the business side of things with a deep understanding and appreciation for the source material.

As for overall SW-E, I got busy as a lawyer, then got un-busy as I "switched" careers, bought a condo and got engaged. Plus, I'm part of two youtube channels, I have an album out with more on the way, and I'm trying to self-publish plus I run a website I hope to monetize sooner rather than later. I'm working on a comic book idea with a friend of mine as well. Time is against me.

As a rule, I give shows (not just Star Wars) as much benefit of the doubt as possible. With that in mind, I viewed Kenobi as being about how Obi-Wan could possibly transition from the (justifiably) terrified former Jedi to the good-natured hermit we saw in IV. I think the show accomplished that, even if it had a lot of weaknesses overall.

Book of Boba Fett was probably the most disappointing show so far. The best parts of it were when it took a break from Boba Fett's "criminal empire" (that explicitly opposed all crime) to follow the Mandalorian and baby Yoda. The rest is well-characterized by the low-speed street chase between a chatty local politician and the technicolor bike gang from Back to the Future 2.

Andor isn't just the best Star Wars show, it's some of the best TV I've watched in a long time.

My problems with Kenobi started when Vader was stopped by a little bit of fire.

I saw some people chalking it up to him being scared of fire since he got burned on Mustafar. But then again, he built his castle on Mustafar and as such whenever he was there he was surrounded by it.

They can't convince me that he couldn't pull Ben through said fire.

Oh, no argument. I'm basically pulling the "TLJ was good because it did a half-ass KotOR 2 and questioned the nature of the Force even though the plot was total garbage and nonsense," but only on Kenobi, because I like Ewan McGregor, I enjoyed watching the show for the most part, and TLJ really is garbage.
