SWAG77 Ain’t No Influencers. Right?

This post is about our Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, and various blogs:

WE HAVE A LOT… 

We have several social media accounts because seven years ago, social media platforms lacked today’s functionality.

How many accounts? We are at 500 now. We do not use all of them. At any given moment, we are working on 50 accounts.

We have to pay extra for the functionalities that we need for the blogs because we are not coders. Functionalities such as commerce, videos, audio, and cloud services have a cost, and we use more.

We have many Facebook character pages and Twitter accounts. Each lead character has a Facebook page and Twitter. The main characters we use daily have blogs at WordPress and Tumblr.

We had a directory, but because few people used it, that Facebook page has lapsed.

Characters have packages consisting of FacebookTwitter, and Tumblr because we, SWAG77, have found the best development of stories, plots, drabbles, metas, headcanons, and fan-fictions are best with these packages. Also, these packages develop a character design that gains social media metrics and insights into what works best with this character’s portrayal and performance in public.

For Example:

For Grand Admiral Thrawn, we created a Facebook pageTwitter accountTumblr blogWordPress blog, and a Patreon tier.

SWAG77 uses the Facebook page to broadcast our story ideas, character background, and canon/non-canon concepts SWAG77 wishes to relay to the public. This account links to our Twitter account with short messages through a social media management platform.

The Twitter account reaches out to an audience that craves rapid and concise messages. The pacing of Tweets excites users. SWAG77 roleplays and performs on Twitter. To gain expand understanding, we write blogs to explain SWAG77’s stories and canon/non-canon positions. We include our videos and podcasts to open up the audiovisual concepts SWAG77 wishes to show to the public. Some content is too proprietary or too mature to display publicly on our open blogs. We created Patreon.

Patreon is for active patrons to directly influence our proprietary content, hypothesis, underlying themes, and controversial subject matter. In our performances and parody rewrites of current news events, SWAG77 encounters harsh and severe misconceptions. Often, we interact with fans who refuse to read or write Star Wars. Thus, any discussion hurts our business. While we are willing to educate fans, we have found that minimal engagement is best. Should fans want more, they can join our Patreon.

We find that fans invest emotionally in entertainment content. Some fans cannot separate between fact or fiction and live their reality vicariously. There is psychological contagion on social media that spreads rapidly where the artificial intelligence engines are incapable of discerning. SWAG77 has endured attacks on our social media accounts because we discuss and tagline promotes our controversial subject matter that can enrage some fans. We suffer the brunt of this disinformation and toxic fandom in entertainment. SWAG77 has little recourse but blocks/bans radical fans who refuse to “stay on target” with our content and messaging.

SWAG77 created Patreon to open our stories to diverse points of view. We would instead show our completed work on all our Facebook, Twitter, and Blog accounts. But put our proprietary content behind a paywall for serious fan engagement with Star Wars fandom. We as a business feel safer with like-minded fans who support SWAG77 primary mission.

What does that do for our Thrawn?

It tightens the fan-fiction stories that SWAG77 wants to present publicly. The more we engage, the better our content creation. We want to show Disney Lucasfilm Star Wars the best that fandom has to offer. We know that the Disney Corporation prefers fan camaraderie rather than conflict.

Grand Admiral Thrawn is a villain that author Timothy Zahn wrote novels in 1991 in the Legend’s canon. Recently, Lucasfilm reintroduced Thrawn into Disney canon with new canon literature and Star Wars Rebels TV show. In SWAG77’s opinion, Thrawn is not a villain yet in the Disney novel canon. In the Star Wars Rebels TV show, he does some questionable actions, but nothing as extensive as in the Legend’s canon books. SWAG77 reads all the books from Legend’s canon and Disney’s canon. We encourage fans to READ — and READ BOOKS, particularly Star Wars literature. Both canons write about Thrawn. There are conflicts in both canons, but we can write about them in the blogs so that fans can choose their story path and then create their own stories with a good foundation that SWAG77 provides to our Patreon members.

From Star Wars fans’ suggestions, SWAG77 adds the ideas to best portray and perform Grand Admiral Thrawn during our scripted roleplays. We will give accolades to those who helped SWAG77 develop the character and story arc.

These activities are what the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG77) has done for thirteen years.

Summary:

Mitth’raw’nuruodo, a Chiss Imperial Officer distant emotions with a cool reflective to lead his sector fleet in the Galactic Empire. His strategies and tactics work better when he is devoid of emotion, as taught by the Chiss Ascendancy House Nuruodo. He was exiled from his people as punishment for an outburst he had in Chiss Space. Or at least that is what is on the official record. Found on an undeveloped planet, the Galactic Empire embraced him and he rose through the Imperial ranks to a Grand Admiral. Life is lonely at the top. It bores him, the people, the slow pace, the loneliness. His personal studies in art and antiquities brought him creature-comfort joy. Then he met a young Rebel woman, a Mandalorian, an artist that excites his fascination in the galaxy and gives him room to breathe, creatively. A fiery passion ignites his desires. The Chiss thought the Ascendancy excise those genes from the gene pool through eugenics. Turns out his desires for community are not genetic. His desires expand and reverberate continuously in the Force.

“Art Lovers” Alien Grand Admiral to add Imperial Academy reject terrorist to his latest art collection?

The two caught canoodling between the paints aboard a Star Destroyer during interrogation…

“Suspicious paint stains on uniform,” confirm two Imperial Loyalty Officers. 

“Those colors aren’t regulation!”

Neither was that position!

Does this incident spell the end for the Grand Admiral and all aliens that serve the Empire?

“All our human officers are held to a high standard. That holoimage appears to be fabricated by the Rebels to taint a good man’s name.”  holocommunique send from Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin’s office.

“I knew Sabine Wren at the Imperial Academy on Mandalore, and I remember when she was expelled. I always wondered who her patron was. Now I know. He is a good man. Maybe all of this a misunderstanding and he is trying to reclaim our lost members?” confirms Baron Valen Rudor, support of the marriage species equality act.

Maybe it is a misguided effort, but we need to understand how Thrawn’s alien culture may view this precarious situation and determine what the best course of action to take toward a wayward, misbehaving Mandalorian girl.

Star Wars RFRS: The Other Kaiburr Crystal on Rhelg – Asili Aikste

This is the backstory as a part of the Rising Force, Rebellious Seed of the Heretical Quatrains of the Great Doctrines of the Yuuzhan Vong:

Asili Aikste

Long ago, the chief deity Yun Yuuzhan, accepted that his children or crechelings were going to destroy his planet, Yuuzhan’tar. So Yun Yuuzhan created a seed from Yuuzhan’tar to form a new homeworld for only the Faithful or “Seed Saviors”. That planet would later be known as Zonama Sekot.

Then Yun Yuuzhan asked the goddess Yun Ne’Shel to break his body into pieces. Some pieces were scattered across the Universe, and some pieces were given to the Supreme Overlord and a selected few of the Domains. The body of Yun Yuuzhan would make intercession for all Yuuzhan Vong during their “MAAFA” across Void Space.

imageThere was another piece of Yun Yuuzhan’s body that manifested itself as a “living crystal”. It was imbued by the raw power of Creation and the Force. Not just Dark or Light Sided powers, but the Unifying Power of the Force. This “living crystal” was a gift to the Mimbamian god, Pomojema and it was to be delivered by the Yuuzhan Vong goddess of redemption, Yun Shuno.

But when she attempted to deliver it on her “Ganapati Comet”, the god Pomojema failed to appear. Fearful she had failed Yun Yuuzhan, Yun Shuno placed the “living crystal” named, Asili Asikste, on an icy planet called, Khar Delba.

For millennia the Asili Aikste remained hidden until Sith Lord Naga Sadow discovered its presence through the Force. It led him to have a deeper sense into the Force unlike that he had ever experienced by meditation alone. He erroneously thought it was the Kaiburr Crystal and he trained to unleash more of its power.

imageThe Asili Aikste was only to respond to offspring of the Yuuzhan Vong and the principalities of the Galaxy through a genetic pact. The Asili Aikste had the power to withdraw its knowledge. It was “knew” who can unlock its mysteries at the molecular genetic level. When the Asili Aikste failed him, Sith Lord Naga Sadow cast it aside.

imageBy that time, his longtime rival, Sith Lord Ludo Kressh had heard of the crystal and how it gave insights into great powers in the Force. He believed in its mysticism and he stole the Asili Aikste hiding it in one of his most holiest places on the planet Rhelg in Sith Space. Eventually, Sith Lord Ludo Kressh was destroyed by Sith Lord Naga Sadow, but the lackluster crystal lost his interest in either of of them. The Asili Aikste became forgotten and lost in time…

Thousands of years later, during the time of the Galactic Empire, a Dark Sided child was born who ruptured the very fabric of the Force. The Asili Aikste awakened and thought that the rupture was the entrance of the faithful “Seed Saviors” of Yun Yuuzhan and their offspring. It believed that they had finished their travails. The Asili Aikste crystal rejuvenated itself and emitted a call through the Force to its genetic inheritors. But after millennia and the Rule of Two, knowledge of the call from the ancient Sith Empire had been lost.

imageOnly Force Users who had inherited or mutated their genes to hear the call of Asili Aikste could respond. Those Force Users were specific: those born of the Yuuzhan Vong, those that had Yuuzhan Vong Biots that were mutated and those persons who accepted the true power of the Kaiburr Crystal from Pomojema, the god of the Mimbanians.

And thus sentient beings enter a new age of Force Use in the Galaxy…

THE FACE OF NATURE’S CRUELTY – SWAG77 PERFORMANCE

Image

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 has been working on a storyline about:

The Yuuzhan Vong found an ancient derelict Sith ship with kyber crystal pyramidal holocrons where living organisms can be inserted inside the crystal boosting its power.

The Grysks were crushing the kyber crystals for food to eat.

The Yuuzhan Vong fired on the Sith ship and incinerated the Grysk for such blasphemy.

Hundreds of years later, a kyber crystal activated as a beacon and artifact treasure hunters raced to find the derelict ship.

TY’GEN DOUGHTRYSS (an OC) determines the exact coordinates and gets to the ship first. He discovers the holocron first that flashes and has a living organism inside it.

Have the Yuuzhan Vong learned how to “grow” kyber crystals with living organisms inside them?

How would the Sith like it?

What does it mean for the galaxy?
