JUNETEENTH SWAG77 STYLE

THE FORETELLING – A Star Wars Fanfic: Rising Force, Rebellious Seed

I was told my story was too violent and should not read.

It’s real put into the Star Wars universe before Disney and has the Legend Yuuzhan Vong.

It is about the “Mother Jedi” trope. My character, AUSET LAH, is a lost padawan enslaved by pirates on an unknown planet. By the time she becomes an adult, she is labeled as a breeder. But she avoided being bred until she was caught and pilloried to be beaten by a knout as an example to the other slaves.

While beaten by the orange overseer, a squad of aliens witness the pain on AUSET that only a goddess could withstand. It was by faith that they saved her and took her to their synod.

She is the first Jedi youngling they captured for study.

Read excerpt:

But this time it was different. Presently, Auset hangs from the pillory and severs herself from the Force. But this time, it is as if the Force would not let her go. She sneers at him. “Overseer, the backs of slaves will never pay for your debts to the Corporation!”

The Overseer growls into her ear and turns to his audience. “See how she defies me? I will make her an example.” The Overseer leans in to mumble. “Last chance, baby. My office or my knout?” He flits out the shiny metal claws tied to leathery braids — five in total.

Star Wars Rising Force, Rebellious Seed: The Foretelling

Mr. David Oyelowo And Our Block Reasons

In People Magazine “Couch Surfing” Mr. Oyelowo who voices AGENT ALEXSANDR KALLUS in STAR WARS REBELS shares that Star Wars fans disappointment that he voices this ANIMATED character. The animated character appears differently than Mr. Oyelowo — ie The character is white and Mr Oyelowo is Black.

https://peopletv.com/video/david-oyelowo/

Of course that should NEVER matter. One is a very REAL PERSON, PROFESSIONAL AWARD WINNING ACTOR and the other is a fabricated animation in the mind of artists. What brought this character to life is Mr. Oyelowo’s creative voice performance. Nothing else brings any animated character than a professional voice actor’s performance. To deny his ability is to be racist and bigoted.

There is bigotry in Star Wars fandom. We saw it best with Ahmed who voiced and CG MoCAPped JAR JAR BINKS. The harassment he endured nearly caused him to commit suicide. Only until recently has he opened up to speak about it.

While it is not Disney’s or Lucasfilm’s fault at the hands of racist and bigoted fans, it has proven very difficult to quell ignorances and cognitive biases of some ugly sides of fandom.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 has been at the attacks by bigots since 2008. We have fended of bigots in ways at first that seems cruel, but when encountered, the sufferers begin to understand why we did what we did. From a small business standpoint, our acts are justified, because we cannot afford a large lawyer representation. Disney and Lucasfilm does not support our efforts. Their people were told lies about us and are fearful of our ire. But our ire was in place for our use until their own workers incurred utterly racist and bigoted attack for the last few years. All the while, our attacks are minimal.

We have our hate on our SENATOR YEMAJA pages.

So here is our small business auto block procedures:

Any post or comment that uses profanity without cause directed to us. We delete, sometimes report, and ban the attacker. Those attacks typically look like “what the f*ck is this sh*t” and use of hateful real life epithets like the N-word.

Massive number of posts when we have never interacted with you. Those attacks appear like more that 3-4 posts. We are not rated to deal with your stalker obsessions. We do not DM people we do not feel comfortable around.

Tag team attack. We don’t play that. Those attacks appear like @1, @2, @3-10 on a post that could be about art from a famous artist.

Telling us what to post — you don’t pay for our accounts, you don’t tell us how to post to it. Who died and made you gods? These attacks look like “you cannot say that. You can only post ____________”

Most of character accounts are in character. They will block on any attempts to learn who the MUNDANE is behind the account. These characters are stuck on social media, that is it. No more, no less. Forcing exposure is OUTING what SWAG77 is trying to do. If a user does not agree, move on, there are other accounts. We find irrational attacks, we will block. These attacks look like, “so you hate the [real life political issue today]?” to gain a confirmation of their beliefs than what we are doing — which is Star Wars.

It is our pages, our user names and involves what we are doing, and deciding to force us to admit something from long ago or unrelated to performance will get you blocked and we will move one. With that, we give you an in kind directive and you get snarky, you are ruining our ability to do business on our streams. Either you stay into the agreement or walk away. If you refuse — such as saying I can post what I want freedom of speech–we will block you. We do not go to anyone’s feeds intentionally to ruin their process, but for you to feel entitled to our posts and your not paying us, it is better for us to silence your bad behavior. What this attack looks like is the user intrudes into the conversation uninvited and speaks outside of the primary post, the user account request redirection and the attacker say “free speech, you should feel one over the other, that hasn’t been what I have expected–” the issue is it separates from the primary goal which is Star Wars online.

We do not sell your stuff. Overriding our ad links, will get you blocked. We have affiliates that we meet our business goals, like a fan table at Star Wars Celebration. When you interfere with our money, illegally, we just block since going after you legally cuts out of our budgets.

Refusal to read our blogs and not staying on topic. We are not only doing this for you. We are organized into a Star Wars fan group to portray our fandom respectfully. Just because you do not like one post is your decision. These attacks generally look like “I am going to UNLIKE this page because I hate XYZ Star Wars Established Canon Disney or otherwise” — you will be banned, your comment will be reported and/or erased. We do not care about your approach, it means you failed to read our blog notes on how we perform our MUSES and that we perform under a storyline arc. If you aren’t going to read and respect that, then we feel our accounts aren’t for your interactions.

Grand Admiral Thrawn In A Movie Campaign By Star Wars Actors Guild 77

Image

Use this meme as your prompt

This campaign has been in operation for a while. The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 owner and members have now got it quasi organized. There are a few final goals and touchpoints we still have to meet with our stakeholders, the fans on the Thrawn In Star Wars Facebook page — given that Facebook does not decimate the owner’s use of the social media platform.

The main question we are asking of Disney as Star Wars fans is do they support and promote READING and CREATIVE WRITING?

In 2014-2015, in #GetThrawnIn, we asked of Disney as Star Wars fans is do they support ART?

Now we are working on READING and CREATIVE WRITING. We think these are things Disney is uniquely qualified to support and promote fully and reflect that in their movie entertainment.

Because to understand THRAWN or MITTH’RAW’NURUODO is to READ the literature. Literacy can be improved in the United States of America.

And the greatest expression of taking what one has read in “reading comprehension” is to creatively write their on fan-fictions.

Of course, this is not to say Disney is obligated to any of these stories, but it is the practice of writing at any age that educates and heals one’s mind as research has shown, repeatedly. Creatively writing, along with reading fiction and art, HEALS throughout all people’s lives — and is that not what Disney strives to tell their their heartfelt stories on the movie screen?

With the Baby Boomer population becoming Senior Citizens who are may have chronic conditions, to connecting with Millennials who have new technological ways to write, this campaign may be the most humanitarian one Disney could ever undertake. It connects generations, all who know who Disney is, as a movie studio and theme park destination. Then, the Post-Millennials will be young adults should this campaign project become a reality. It is SWAG77s understanding that many of the Post-Millennials are some of the most avid readers and prolific writers of their age-group.

Bring THRAWN in a movie is an appreciation by Star Wars and it’s fans of a character by design that supports those ideals:

ART

READING

WRITING

The story character classification of THRAWN can be villain, but villains are seen as great people in some societies. Or for movie purposes, the screenplay can change the classification.

SWAG77 knows that THRAWN IN A MOVIE is a viable project for the Star Wars fan campaign.

We will use the hashtag: #ThrawnInAMovie

Memes with quotes from the Disney canon, first. Legends canon afterward for advanced training.

We have a dedicated creative writer’s group on ARCHIVE OF OUR OWN under SWAG77.

The SWAG77 Thrawn blog is: http://thrawnstarwars.wordpress.com

The SWAG77 Thrawn Facebook Page is: http://facebook.com/ThrawnStarWars

The SWAG77 Thrawn Twitter Page is: http://twitter.com/ThrawnStarWars — we hope to keep it as long as we can but Twitter rules have been really cruel to us and our business.

NEEDS

  • USE THE #ThrawnInAMovie hashtag for all fan art you think is fitting and why
  • Get your creative writing skills together and contact us — the prompt is the image above if you can’t think of your own story.
  • The only other allowance is SAVE THE YSALAMIRI — that’s more open
  • SWAG77 promotes these stories for everyone to read.
  • Fan Art is on your own but we will use it
  • SWAG77 changes the prompt as needed

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.

Thrawn needed provisions from a developed, first world planet different from the isolated planet lost in the Unknown Regions for any sentient society. But not one directly affiliated with the Empire or the rumors he’s heard, First Order. He could procure weaponry, ships and component parts.

But what he could do is reconnect on Batuu with any Mandalorians. He found…
