@wigglytuffitout (actually I have feelings about all the eras, but I have a great surplus of feelings and most of them are about Star Wars)
@wigglytuffitout yes!!! I have so many feelings about the Clone Wars-era characters and not nearly enough brain coherency time properly ramble about them but at Some Future Point I will absolutely flail about them
@wigglytuffitout Yes! You get it!!! Padmé was a *child queen*, she’s not going to be a normal well-adjusted adult, she just hides her Issues better than Anakin (and I feel like the secret relationship appealed to her *because* it was one thing in her life that was fully and completely hers, and I have Many Opinions and not enough coherence at the moment to express them)
let’s try this again
@noelle I read this as “undead herring”
@wigglytuffitout @noelle @InspectorCaracal @chr My Texan mother would say that “all y’all” is an abomination unto grammar and “y’all” is for all groups; I suspect there is regional variation. (I tend to start using “y’all” either when there are more than three or four people or when it otherwise wouldn’t be clear whether I was talking to everybody or one person.)
@noelle ...I could have sworn I was, like, 12 when it came out.
@Crash that said, oh no
@Crash …I forgot I don’t have the Elekk emojis
@wigglytuffitout @firstname.lastname@example.org Oh! The fanfic actually exists and I misread it as being part of the joke! Is it on ao3 or ff.net or anywhere?
@wigglytuffitout @email@example.com …I unironically want to read this fanfic 👀
SWTOR-related derailing, cont
@noelle Which, of course, can be very difficult in itself, but I don’t think it’s objectively bad advice. Whereas “do or do not, there is no try” is at best very specific to Luke not believing he *could* “do,” and needing to think of it as, like, waving his arm around instead of An Enormous Effort Of Will He Probably Couldn’t Muster. And that’s… somewhat more charitable an interpretation than it probably deserves.
@noelle This is reminding me that, a bit ago, I realized I accidentally made Velnira (good bean consular) kind of an anti-Yoda. She’s fond of saying that trying is *all* you can do; you can’t ever know for certain that you’re doing the correct thing, so all you can do is pick the option that seems best at the time, or have faith that you *can* succeed without needing to know that you *will*.
@magicalmilly That is *fantastic* and I love it.
@magicalmilly Page is a joy and a delight and I support her and her undead hands unconditionally
@noelle Less chain-letter-y—
Being a good person isn’t about never failing or never making mistakes or even never hurting anyone. It’s *about* trying sincerely to be better than yesterday, and I know you do, and it’s one of the (many many) things I love about you. You are compassionate and genuine in ways that *show* you’ve practiced it as a skill, that you’ve worked to be good to people, and that’s what a good person is—someone who works to be good to people. <3

I want to see something. If you see this and think @noelle is a good person, don't boost it, copy/paste it as your own toot.
Autistic, asexual, sapphic, genderfluid, definitely queer. Might be a Sith politics pundit. (they/them)
