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.

Fan Art and Fanfics Will Not Get You A Disney Lucasfilm Star Wars Contract

(Originally posted on Tumblr 2018)

Your work will go unread, ignored and unseen. No one will steal your work to get famous because they “stole your idea” and presented it to Disney Lucasfilm.

No one will admire your old work.

Employees of Disney Lucasfilm do not look at work and they cannot even share their own work because it cannot be made public.

You are delusional if you think your idea supersedes the legally contracted ideas Disney Lucasfilm has that is out in the open or their non-disclosure agreements and in their bank vaults.

Stop being a narcissist.

As far as Disney Lucasfilm cares about your art or fanfic, it is theirs for the taking. They own the intellectual property, the copyrights and the trademarks on all images, subject-matter, and stories with the derivatives of the said work.

They also have the advertising and marketing strategies that far exceeds yours.

When Disney wants new ideas and polished ideas, they hire the best of the best through professional networks. Because they can. It is based on the collegiality of the work environment and the trust to do the job.

Your nasty comments and hate messaging are only taken into account when they decide to refer back to social media.

It does not matter about how many work hours you have put in, how hard you worked, or how expensive it cost you to create your said piece. It is your mentality that is foul when you failed to do your work for free out of sheer enjoyment. Then you demand remuneration for it from Disney Lucasfilm.

Disney has done their business for over 100 years. You are lucky they don’t sue you for racketeering and bog you down in court. Do you have lawyers that can go against Disney Corporate?

You are lucky they don’t send you a cease and desist order. There are several cases of Lucasfilm doing just that. Especially to presumptuous fan groups.

Lately, Disney Lucasfilm has relaxed its measures with the advent of social media. But you had better believe they will protect all their assets. Keep testing them.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 is uninterested in discussing the corporate machinations with Tumblr users, anymore.

Good luck on your efforts.

Grysks are not the Yuuzhan Vong

In the book, STAR WARS THRAWN ALLIANCES, Darth Vader and Grand Admiral Thrawn go to the planet, BATUU to search for the Emperor’s disturbance in the Force. BATUU is on the outskirts of the area of the galaxy called THE UNKNOWN REGIONS – an area of galactic space that has not been mapped for hyperspace routes, all the species are not known to the core governments (i.e. The Galactic Empire) and has little trade with the known galaxy. It is where THRAWN or Mitth’raw’nuruodo’s people, the Chiss live in their space. It suggests that Chiss have been space-fairing beings for a long time and they do not travel beyond their space borders (due to xenophobia) until THRAWN.

So, Vader and Thrawn visit BATUU to search for this disturbance and are attacked by some kind of swarm of bug-like creatures that leave some kind of stone metal on their person to digest whatever can be digestible (somewhat like THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL in 2008)

THRAWN had heard of the Grysks and what they could do, but his demeanor is his usual calm, which often means he is calculating ways he could defeat them. VADER somewhat freaked out, but regained his composure. He hates sand and these Grysk bug swarm were like fighting with his lightsaber in sand.

Because  of the type of combat that could disable Vader and Thrawn, some powerful fans who motivate millions have suggested that the Grysks are the YUUZHAN VONG.

The Yuuzhan Vong are an extra-galactic species that enter the Star Wars galaxy from the Unknown Regions and Invade and declare war on the Star Wars galaxy because the beings live side-by-side with droids that they religiously believe are abominations.

The Yuuzhan Vong are FORCE ABSENT so mind tricks and Force push do not work on their warriors. ALL of their technology are LIVING TECHNOLOGY called BIOTS. Their starships to their clothing are LIVING. They believe in a PANTHEON of gods and each god has a caste dedicated to them as they worship them. The caste of Yuuzhan Vong that is seen often in the fan pictures are of the WARRIOR CASTE because of their ferocity.  They carry large serpents that turn into staffs and fight in a martial art they created (probably like Akido with some mix).

There is much more to them than here, and please visit ONE of the SWAG77 sites to learn about the YUUZHAN VONG EMPIRE.

The STAR WARS ACTORS GUILD 77 has been roleplaying characters, created characters  and stories about the YUUZHAN VONG for over 10 years. WE KNOW ABOUT the YUUZHAN VONG and we have rallied for their reintroduction into the Disney Star Wars canon for years.

We feel that with GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE, RECYCLING, WASTE MANAGEMENT, DILAPIDATED INFRASTRUCTURES, DIRTY OCEANS, LOSS OF FRESH POTABLE WATER and LIFEFORM MASS EXTINCTIONS on the rise, the YUUZHAN VONG as fictional movie characters are uniquely positioned to examine such stories for relevancy and find solutions. The YUUZHAN VONG found a way to live thousands of years from their galaxy to the Star Wars galaxy with their BIOTS. Any fan can be inspired by science fiction movies, and one never knows who that is…

YuuzhanVongwarriors

Based on our stories, our conversations and our programs we have put forth, WE ARE SAYING:

THE GRYSKS ARE NOT THE YUUZHAN VONG

The Grysks are too unorganized to be an existential threat. The Yuuzhan Vong by definition are existential threats.

The Grysks have no formal organized military. The Yuuzhan Vong have an entire caste dedicated to worshiping a god to drive their military. Strange weapons does not minimize their military readiness and capabilities. Underestimating them will cause planets to be eaten.

The Grysks use too much metal and trade with unsavory people. The Yuuzhan Vong HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE any metal object crafted by some being’s hand to rule over them. Be it droid or weapon or ruling cane. The only metals that are seen as good to them are COORDINATED…

 

Must say this, the Grysks may have learned some tactics from the CONFEDERACY OF INDEPENDENT SYSTEMS or SEPARATISTS while they were active in THE UNKNOWN REGIONS. It explains why their military abilities are so shabby.

IF…. The Separatists got too far into THE UNKNOWN REGIONS and the YUUZHAN VONG saw them, it would make the YUUZHAN VONG go crazy to fight with a fervor that is drunk on the religiosity as a crusade. The YUUZHAN VONG do not play that droid mess.

It explains SOME aspects of STAR WARS THRAWN: ALLIANCE — Thrawn steals SEPARATIST technology for use by the CHISS. If the YUUZHAN VONG randomly associated that concept, no wonder the CHISS feel attacked from out of nowhere.

IF SNOKE is an UMBARAN and some of his Force abilities are what UMBARANS have, which is TECHNOPATHY — the ability to change electronic technology in one’s favor — or access to computers and change programs as a “Force Hacker” — and he got flipped by the SEPARATISTS (because the UMBARANS did join the CIS for a moment — Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 4 – Darkness on Umbara) — then he went into The Unknown Regions (separate from the Chiss) to set up “shop” and got in the way with the YUUZHAN VONG plans…OH YES…IT’S ON!

SHEEV PALPATINE or DARTH SIDIOUS did a clusterfuck. As a Sith, he chose the violent pathway. He wanted to fight the YUUZHAN VONG and saw it as something to be easily DEALT WITH in the Empire. Perhaps the FIRST ORDER was doing the same. But doing away with the JEDI was the mistake.

In the Legends Canon (SWEU) Luke Skywalker figured out the YUUZHAN VONG and defeated them.

IF Disney decides to bring the YUUZHAN VONG back, they are left with very little to fight back. Which means there will be some retcon and some watering down (namely the religiosity).  Because the Yuuzhan Vong would shape all the Force using characters to their whims and kill the rest. But, we don’t think that will ever happen. Hopefully, Disney does some kind of justice. But it is unlikely.

Just know the GRYSKS are NOT THE YUUZHAN VONG.

SNOKE is not a Yuuzhan Vong either. Listen to our PODCAST here:

Star Wars Rebels – Partial Basis for Grand Admiral Thrawn Campaign

08192014-thrawnbine-discussion-1

[sic] “Her and Grand Admiral Thrawn would have a lot to talk about…”

In 2014, Lucasfilm Star Wars released the images of the Star Wars Rebels characters. That issue incidentally marked the hate groups in Star Wars fandom and their cyberbullying harassment of mainly female characters, one being SABINE WREN who is an artist.

The development of her artistry over the last two seasons has been less and less.

Season 3, we have not seen her actually PAINT as much as she use to. There is a reason. A “new” beloved character was introduced.

GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 started the #GetThrawnIn Campaign in 2015 due to the cyberbulling for appreciating Disney Star Wars, but we also started the campaign, because of the above official Star Wars Rebels Facebook Page conversation with other fans (source) in 2014…

SWAG77 hereby announces our PROOF that fans positively interacted with Disney Lucasfilm to assist in the planning of the story arc of Star Wars Rebels… It does coalesce with other posted social media.

SWAG77 #GetThrawnIn campaign helped guide respectful discussions with corporate entity. SWAG77 knows Disney Lucasfilm Star Wars likes how we portray their character on mainstream social media outlets. SWAG77’s careful considerations to their process and folding it into our full creative expression, and SWAG77 involves ourselves in their fan activities at Star Wars Celebration in 2012, 2015 and hopefully, 2017.

For 2017, we hope to make a new influence, that is positive, creative and fun with professionalism.

#Thrawn In #StarWars

It has been a tumultuous ~2 years for the #GetThrawnIn #StarWarsRebels campaign. We had many attacks by angry fans who felt they must control the creative concepts of Lucasfilm. Their process attacks them online through cyberharassment and bullying, as recent as Star Wars Celebration Europe toward a famous author (source).

We started out for social justice, but we learned about fine art and classical music.

We have over 90 images from Jackson Pollock’s string paintings to the recent Maria Kreyn’s “Alone Together” painting used in ABC’s “To Catch A Thief”.

tumblr_o4kzvajexg1upakypo1_1280

Maria Kreyn’s “Alone Together”

We have built a 62 youtube playlist from classical music composers and artists that highlight story motifs that highlight essential part from all the Star Wars movies. Composers like Stravinsky and Holst. However, we have learned to love classics from Gustav Mahler and Rachmaninov.

 

The art and music components were for exposure to ask the question, what types of art and music would the character Thrawn see and hear to evaluate a culture. Based on our reading of both Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire and Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath, we discover that Thrawn chose a variety of art pieces to evaluation, most were holographic scupltures. But he had a fine appreciation for color that only 2-D paintings provide. As far as the music, he enjoy symphonies and orchestras. Strings instruments were fine, but it is never stated that within the movements of work he heard, what kind of instruments he had an affinity toward.

As far as interpretation of each piece, we did not make any. We wanted our audience to do it. Then, we discover they were woefully ignorant of fine art and classical music. Why choose those colors? Why that montage of sound? That is when we learned that Thrawn probably has synesthesia – he can see color in sound and numbers to music. He has a collection of senses that amplify when he interacts with art and music. It might be an activity of the Chiss, then again, it may just be a character trait of Thrawn and he applies his abilities with his war training and tactical strategy.

We also have an Arts and Crafts component with what we call, “Save The Ysalamiri“. These Star Wars Legends’ canon creatures, Ysalamiri, form Force Neutral bubbles in 10 meters in diameter that can stop Force Users from using their Force powers. These creatures, Ysalamiri, appear like pets of a cat-dog-iguana appearance and only lived on one planet, on an “endangered” tree. In Heir to the Empire, Thrawn discovered a way to remove Ysalamiri from their trees without killing them and use them to his advantage. In real life, we created sock puppets for family enjoyment.
