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.

#StarWars #RP Performance to Full Fanfiction

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 creative process was created for fan-fiction works with a test for audience outreach. The post is about one of many of our creative processes for the Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebels campaign.

First, we write a simple script or dedicate a simple idea based on the literature we have from Lucasfilm (canon and Legends). These activities are done privately with SWAG77 members.

For this particular story, we needed to see how well our Thrawn roleplayer interacted with us and how comfortable they would be with SWAG77 roleplayers. The Thrawn RPer has had a very good independent account and has a preference for it because of real-life obligations, such as a career.

Once our story idea has reached a consensus, then we will perform within the context our outline, and our RPers perform spontaneously by improvisation or ad-lib according to our agreed outline. The timeline setting loose, but is during the Star Wars Rebels timeline and continuity.

STORIFY was the post-capture program for this particular performance (a deprecated site).

It is about a visit that Thrawn will take to the planet, Eriadu (which WAS Lothal but has been changed), and Agent Kallus was being asked to set up his visit. Little does Kallus know, he is being evaluated by Thrawn.

After our initial performance, we post-process the transcripts and put them into a prose story format. There will be several re-writes, substitutions and deletions during the editting process. Finally, we create our Archive On Our Own Story (AO3).

Star Wars: The Vernissage – Interlude II

Our works will be featured on several sites, such as this site, AO3, Patreon, and social media. We will participate in several writing challenges, such as NaNoWriMo.

Finally, we promote our stories accordingly to all our social media platforms for the fans to read and enjoy.

#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”.

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.
