also is it okay if i hope that the new version of Boba Fett is actually kind of a hopeless fuckup and a shitty bounty hunter who only gets a reputation as a super duper badass because of his super duper badass armor? i mean in the original trilogy all he does is let everyone else do the work of catching and freezing Han Solo, then he takes all the credit(s), and then he gets quasi-accidentally thrown unceremoniously into a giant toothy desert anus, so his entire Legends character progression was ridiculously at odds with his appearance in the movies

because i'm just going to go ahead and hope for that

and i mean i know he'll just be a super duper badass because that is what will sell but what if he was actually a loser, oh my god, the nerdrage, it would be able to power cities

Oh SC, that'd be wonderful. If he was the Bounty Hunter version of Inspector Gadget - all cools gear, but actually a total fuck-up klutz, who still gets his bounties through the genuinely badass work of whoever his version of Penny (and that dog) would be.

Sam, question: Who would Boba Fett's version of Penny from Inspector Gadget / Jonathon from Jonathon Creek / Sancho Panza from Don Quioxte be? Does he have a scarily competent, eyes-wide-open side kick in any EU material?

there's a Young Boba Fett book where he pals around with Elian Sleazebaggano. Adapt it so that later he's palling around with Elian's buxom daughter and we're good.

i have sad news for my fellow Sleazebaggano fangirls and fanboys alike: They are walking back Elian's ridiculous name and backstory and saying "oh haha no he's not actually named elian sleazebaggano that would be ridiculous it was just a name people came up with for him because he was an asshole. Haha who would actually name a character in fiction 'Sleazebaggano'

no no his actual name was Elan Sel'Sabagno"

oh man and i just realized it can be even better in the new canon, because The Clone Wars and Rebels have established the Mandalorians as at least encompassing a selection of bonafide badasses. so you can have Boba Fett walking around in his full-on Mandalorian armor and everyone's all "whoa shit that's full-on Mandalorian armor he must be b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-bad to the bone" and then he, like, lights his own ass on fire with his jetpack or something.

So, is the spoiler tag legit or are we giving people a couple days?

i know its sunday but i'll hide this anyway wrote:
i can already tell i'm going to have the most unpopular opinion.

i could tell it was quality! i acknowledge the quality! i really loved almost all of the characters so so much.

i did not love the story, though. the story left me in an AWFUL headspace. i had to actually put a lot of effort into not letting it sink me further into seasonal depression.

sad stories are not for me.
