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 ! :)

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.

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 ? ;)

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...

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. :')
