A Tribute to Royalty

Post by Amion » Tue Dec 27, 2016 8:57 pm

Many thanks Carrie Fisher, for being the driving force behind Princess Leia. May she be remembered as one of Disney's greatest princesses. :)

Looks like Han's death will hit harder than we first thought... or we're in for an off-screen death at some point in the coming films...

It had one last dastardly deed up its sleeve...

And with still another three days to go, who knows might be next?
Hopefully this is the end of it. First David and Alan, then Shepherd Book and all of the others - Nancy Reagan, Anton Yelchin, Colonel Glenn, and now George Michael and the Princess...Dunno how much more tragedy I can take this year.

You're right, that's why I added an ellipse. But we're closing in. Let us pray this is the finale and not the build-up.

Warning: Gallows humor, not for everyone.

In its struggle to climb out of Uncanny Valley, it seems CG Leia has acquired a powerful thirst for human souls.

Whelp, looks like Carrie Fisher's mom was next. Debbie Reynolds passed on yesterday due to a stroke while helping to plan her daughter's funeral, apparently.

Yep. Read last night that she'd been rushed to the hospital, and I saw in the news this morning that she passed away.

I feel like I'm in Zelda: Majora's Mask:

Dawn of the Second Day*

48 hours remain....

*Technically we're not at the second to last day, but the effect feels the same. Never before I have suddenly felt a threatening ticker toward New Years.

Hush Shadow, there is no need to look for ill tidings yet. As Saint Paul said, today's troubles are sufficient.

Goodbye Carrie Fisher. You may never have appreciated it, but you taught a lot of girls out there, my sister included, that the princess didn't have to stand on the sidelines and wring her hands while the motley band of self-determined heroes fought on her behalf. The "Rebellious Princess" trope that is so familiar thanks to Disney? Never would have happened without your moxie, and Leia Organa was may more focused than any of Mouse, Inc's pretenders to the tiara. And as lady Senator, you also proved that woman leaders didn't have to stand back and mouth platitudes while the galaxy burned. The Empire not finished yet after their big gun got blown up? No problem, put on a uniform and help run the Rebellion, make that pedigree work for something besides a table at the best retaurant. (And pencil in a little time to nag at that dashing scoundrel in the hopes he will live up to the inner hero you see in him. ;))
