Kenobi Spin-off Video :)

My ! It's been about 3 years since I made my last entry here !
Well, just the other day, I made my first Star Wars video featuring the novelisation of 'Kenobi' written by John Jackson Miller.

The story is set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope in which Obi-Wan Kenobi, now known as 'Ben Kenobi', is still young-ish and Luke is just an infant currently raised by Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru on Tatooine.

The video is already up, so...enjoy ! :)

Hello on this site! I was just thinking of you today, what a coincidence to see a post. I spent a fandom morning going through fandom stuff, in particular reminiscing about sites glossed over through the mists of time, like sithchicks and generalsgrrrls and all those geocities sites. I hope you are well.

Have you seen Rogue One?


2nd-Feb-2017 01:49 pm (UTC) - Hi Pronker-san ! :)
Hello ~ ! :D
It's finally weekend over here in Japan, and I finally have time to get on-line on my Desktop. :)

Sorry, I could not see this message on LJ when I last checked the site 'on my cell-phone'. -_-;

Oh, YES ! I have seen Rogue One not once but 'twice' ! XD And at both times, I couldn't help but cry when the central characters sacrificed their lives to get the Death Star plans... T_T

Sakura!!! Great to see you! The vid is beautiful -- I read that book a couple years ago so am fuzzy on the story but gosh it must have taken you sooooo long to round up all those pictures!
2nd-Feb-2017 01:57 pm (UTC) - Hi Lumi-san ! :)
Hi ~ !! :D
It's SO nice to see you again ! :)
And...thank you so very much for the compliment about the video which took me about a year to finish making, really ! XD

Oh, yes, it really is my first SW fan video...'the first' and probably 'the last'. ^_^;

Hey, just the other day, I re-watched Return of the Jedi...and when I saw 'Emperor' talking to Luke for the first time, giving him a sickly(?)-sweet smile, I could not help but think about you, wondering how you have been doing ! XD


2nd-Feb-2017 04:37 pm (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
Oh wow a whole year! It would take me even longer than that because I have no idea how to do anything like that :) But that is a labor of love, for you to stick with it so long.

I'm happy to hear that such a thing made you think of me, though, LOL -- I miss those days! When I had an "inner Palpatine" that would enable me to write cracky Ani/Palpy goodness.

It's funny, I never could write anything very long, before... now I'm writing multi-chaptered stories and the chapters are each longer than any of those! Funny how the muse works.

Yes. A labour of love, it was. ^_^
Oh, and thank you so much for posting the video link to Jedi News just the other day.
I was so very happy to see my entry posted up there for the first time in...G*d knows how long ! XD

But...you have read Kenobi before, you said ?
Hmm, it was a bit of a surprise for me since I have always thought you were less interested in Obi-Wan... ( Sorry if I'm wrong ^_^; )

Well, o'genki deh ( take care ), Lumi-san. :)
4th-Feb-2017 04:22 am (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
You're very welcome!

You have a good memory :) I've always been fond of Obi-Wan, it's Obi/Ani I had a problem with, due to my jealousy/insecurity issues and the crack RP I was in at the time. I can't say I LIKE the pairing now, but I did get over that, and I no longer hate them, at least. Obi-Wan is a great character, though, and his isolation on Tatooine does interest me since I'm a loner and kind of a "strange old hermit" myself ;)
4th-Feb-2017 09:16 am (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
Hi, again. :)
Oh...you did 'get over' Obi/Ani pairing now ? XD

Well, I think it's like...I love Luke, but never liked ( and am still not mad about ) Luke/Mara.
And, oh yes...it might be the jealousy that makes me want to stay away from Luke/Mara or even Obi/Satine, plus Obi/Siri pairings...I think ? ^_^;

Sakura *hugs*
PS. Hey, if you still have a Facebook page, I am still up there, too, so...you're always welcome to come visit me there, too. :)

I don't MIND the pairing, but I don't 'ship them :)

Well at least now with Luke/Mara you can be relieved it never really happened, it's just a ~legend~ I never saw Obi/Siri very much (just a little bit in RP), but Obi/Satine... UGH. I didn't like that at all because I felt like it tarnished his character, like how can he preach to Anakin about attachments and stuff when he like... almost walked away from the Order himself for one?? Just seems way OOC for Obi-Wan. I guess some people could say it adds some depth to the character... meh. I disagree.

I deactivated my Facebook, temporarily at first, and then found I didn't ever want to go back. But if I do change my mind (or maybe make a new page?) I'll look you up :D

Heh ~ *smiles* If you don't mind my saying this, this is the first time I ever saw your icon pic being Obi-Wan. X)

But...yes, I do love 'this' icon thingy of the Obi brooding about something like 'Was it Anakin ( again ? ) who broke my waffle-maker ?'. XD

Ooh. Nice to hear that Luke/Mara is not really official now. ( Well, I do think Mara in all those illustrations really is attractive, I have to admit. But that's another story. )

Well, it's not that I update my Facebook everyday. Try not to get myself addicted to it though. ^_^;

But still...this is where so many of my friends from all over the world and I get together and chat. Besides, the access to the site is very simple and oh-so-easy. ;) Well, say hello to me there once you get back on there, anyway ! *sends big hugs from the other side of the pond* :)
12th-Feb-2017 05:30 pm (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
LOL at Ani breaking Obi's waffle-maker! But look, I even have an icon with the two of them together! Hehe.

I don't know much about Mara, but I agree, she was a smokin' hot chick :)

I know, I know, the whole world is on Facebook, but it's evil! It sucks away your time, and other so-called "friends" post shit about how great their lives are to make everyone else feel bad! And, in my case, I have a tendency to be a bit stalker-like about certain things... and it's easier just to stay away from it all. I MAY just make a new FB someday and only add fandom friends and maybe businesses I can get coupons from and stuff. We'll see. Haven't been tempted to do it yet.
17th-Feb-2017 07:38 am (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
Haha...now THAT is another side of you I never saw...'you' showing off the icon of Anakin & Obi-Wan going 'Cin Cin' ! XD ( Cin Cin is the Italian for 'Cheers' but the Japanese for 'a penis' -_-; )

A smoking hot chick ! XD Yes, that's what she looks like in most illustrations ! XD

Oh, nobody has to sign up for Facebook even if they are encouraged( forced ? ) to do so by their friends or even workmates. Yes, as you said, there are people like that who keeps boasting about, you know, what they want to boast about. It's true. ^_^;

Hmm, I have always had a feeling that it seems to have been pretty quiet in the world of LiveJournal in the past 10 years or so...
When I was here, like full-time, it was 2005 the time Revenge of the Sith came out, and I was spending more time on writing or reading fanfics here on LJ, communicating with the fellow authors, etc., spending less time on studying. XD
Aww, those were the days... :')
18th-Feb-2017 10:12 pm (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
LOL that one word can mean both cheers and penis!

Yeah, LJ was way more active back then, at least for SW fandom. I wondered if there would be a resurgence after The Force Awakens, but there really wasn't... at least not that I could see. I haven't kept up with all of LJ's changes, I'm sure, but I feel like it's much harder to find communities now than it used to be. Maybe I'm doing something wrong -- or maybe not that many communities exist like they did in olden times??

There are sooooo many social media sites now, though, that people are just spread out all over. From like 2005-2009 or so, blogging sites were more popular than they are now, and LJ was a more happenin' place.
19th-Feb-2017 07:01 am (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
You know, I remember there were lots and lots and LOTS MORE Japanese fan sites of Star Wars manga/fanfiction back in those years like 2005 - 2009. And all the fangirls and fanboys ( slashy or non slashy ) were SO into Revenge of the Sith especially the characters.

And here in Japan ( and even in the States ? ) it was the pairings like Obi/Qui and Ani/Obi that got us going like 'Oooh and Aaah'. We were SO mad about beautiful, handsome Anakin and incredibly attractive Obi-Wan with a beard.

Eventually, those websites had disappeared. :'(
But I am so glad I had saved lots of SW illustrations and manga from those sites before they were completely gone. Some of them, especially those A/P ones, I did share with you, remember ? ;)
20th-Feb-2017 04:33 am (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
I do remember that -- you're right, there WERE some sites out there... and remember the Hayden one... wasn't it like desiringhayden.com? Something like that? (if that was it, it's gone now) But somehow it was different from the sites they use nowadays... I guess those didn't seem to take the place of LJ like tumblr etc. did...
25th-Feb-2017 01:47 am (UTC) - Re: Hi Lumi-san ! :)
Alas, the fangirls especially those whom used to call themselves 'hige-moe( beard lover(s) )', just got crazy about Ewan-Obi with a well-trimmed beard, and then got back into the competitive world of boys and men, schools and jobs. Gone, gone, gone. :')
