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.
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.
You slammed my efforts in 2011 when the chance to change was going on. I hate this because I am one of the Black women that bust my ass to be in clouded in the fandom. Because I do not write well, my ideas don’t come across effectively. But I know what works. The aforementioned characters are not what we are looking for.
Because the grief is not worth it to do the “right thing” alone. I’d need more support. Voices stronger than mine. Social media viral marketing that I can’t do alone. I’m not going to bring a Black Woman into this game with so many who hate our very existence. Forget the new books. I’ll be with the rest of the crowd who are reactive after the movie than proactive before the movie is written.
Thrawn was hard enough and that’s a whitewashed blue dude…
The odds of doing a dark complexioned heroine in Star Wars who lives through tumult in Star Wars are non-existent. Absent.
So when you complain, just know IDC because 3 letters to Lucasfilm with responses means that someone doesn’t get it.
I’d do better to get George Lucas in the film as a cameo like Stan Lee is in Marvel flicks.
That sad feeling when you’re a star wars fan and you wanna take part in the excitement over Rogue One but you’re a black woman and there are no woc, let alone any black women in the movie.. so you gotta watch your white female friends have all the fun
@otherbully1 That’s when you fan create your original characters that figure in prominent at that time. Mine is @senatoryemaja. I can tell you, Lucasfilm knows about my character and I’ve told them they have a problem with Black women, atm.
