Finally done(-ish)!! My contribution to andythelemon's Rule 63 Project (take a lead male protagonist and genderbend them as a female character), featuring Luke Skywalker from Star Wars! or Lucy Skywalker, perhaps? Luke is one of my absolute favourite protagonists, so I just couldn’t resist :D
In the end I couldn’t decide on what scene to draw, so ended up sketching out a couple of moments from each movie in the OT :) I’m sorry for the randomness of these… This was a really fun project and a great idea, thank you for organising it Andy!

Can Gwen Stacy just die already? Because she was a waste of space in the comic (which is WHY she died in the comic - she was already a stiff, especially compared to MJ, and so Gerry Conway made her one for good). Her absence can only help the Spider-Emo!Boy films (it certainly can’t make them worse. I’m anxiously awaiting the next reboot - maybe the third time, under a Marvel/Disney studio that actually understands Marvel characters, will be the charm).
I wish I was as brave as Mary Jane. She has always proven that she is a survivor no matter what was thrown at her. She evokes strength in Peter and anyone close to her. Mary Jane has felt powerless many times—stupid writers have taken so much from her and are currently trying to strip her of everything that she is— but in the end, Mary Jane will prevail because she knows exactly who she is. I wish I had that clarity. I wish I was Mary Jane.
There Is Still Good In Him - Tosche Station
"There’s good in him. I know… I know there’s still…” “There is still good in him.” “I’ve got to save you.”
It’s not a stretch to say that redemption is a main theme of the Star Wars films and neither is it a stretch to say that the same theme continued through the Expanded Universe. The story of someone’s fall to the dark and eventual redemption to the light has been repeated countless times throughout. This is, afterall, a franchise built upon the story of the rise, fall, and redemption of Anakin Skywalker.
So why, in recent years, have we seen stories go against this?
I’m talking, of course, about Jacen Solo and also Vestara Khai. How did we get to a point in the Star Wars universe where Luke Skywalker, Dark Side Redeemer Extraordinaire, isn’t consistently giving it his all to try and bring back his nephew or a young girl from the dark side?
Go read this excellent article.
But remember, friends don’t let friends read the SWEU past Survivor’s Quest. Just say no to any series/stand alone book that has Troy Denning as an author.
