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.

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.

What more do you need #Disney #Lucasfilm to prove to you that your #StarWars fans are racist? 

The individual in question is here: https://www.facebook.com/kyle.taylor.33821189

What you did to fans that support diversity in your movies is basically destroy them on a thought that you prefer racist bigots over the creativity you appropriate. Should not have expected more from a corporation, but did because strides are important. 

Why is this a fan you want? 

Versus this Lady and her husband that attends the Star Wars Celebrations?

Spoiler Warning for various Star Wars media that tells the story of Grand Admiral Thrawn.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG 77) is a social media entertainment and performance fan group dedicated to providing strong, accurate, and authentic online portrayals of Star Wars characters on various social media platforms. We tell…

#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.

The Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebels Campaign by the Star Wars Actors Guild 77

GrandAdmiralThrawn_article-2-4

Get Thrawn in Star Wars Rebels


The Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebels Campaign was started by us, the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 because:

  1. We like Grand Admiral Thrawn as a character and villain
  2. We like Star Wars Legends books, especially Heir To The Empire
  3. We watched Star Wars Rebels “Call to Action” and it dawned on us that Thrawn could be introduced to fight the Rebels
  4. A fan on our Sabine Wren accounts stated, “Well, Sabine would have a lot to talk about with Thrawn”
  5. Lastly, I started this campaign because I was being cyberharassed and bullied by the “Continue Legends Alliance” sociopaths who whined about Disney ruining Legends and forcing them to add back the ENTIRE catalog of Legends books. I refused to promote their spewing, frothing hate. I got a hate page to attack my Facebook and Twitter pages.

Here’s my proof of the bullying and there is more: https://swag77.com/2015/01/27/starwarsfansociopaths/

It killed my business, the Ariafya LLC and the Star Wars Actors Guild 77, and what my business stands for – reading the books, writing our stories and performing them on social media…

As an older Black female Star Wars fan who has had two fan tables at Star Wars Celebrations in 2012 and 2015, before Celebration, the attacks by “fans” were personal. Messages in my inbox and lies. And that is paltry compared to what these fools do to Star Wars fans who are women and diverse.

See, being a graduate of Spelman College in 1990 and have a Masters and Doctorate in molecular biology, with postdoctoral appointments and 5 published scientific articles in aging, diabetes and heart disease gives me real world experience with crafting a very complex idea and bringing it to fruition.

Moreover, working on Obamacare and creating an award winning health forum for diverse people in my city with funding from the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, also gives me real world experiences on how political campaigns work.

Because in my Freshman year in college I worked with Julian Bond campaign and marched against the Klu Klux Klan in Forsythe County Georgia to protest, — to assist in crafting Amnesty International’s stance against Apartheid in 1989,  my REAL WORLD stories and experiences drove me to show these lunatic “fans” how to a villain character back into the canon of Star Wars through Disney. That is how GET THRAWN IN got started.

The premise is simple: Thrawn as a character is define as an “art lover” to defeat his opponents by analyzing their art. The brush strokes, the craft design, what tools were uses, materials, etc. Thrawn analyzes all of that.

Let’s take art from the “masters” – Monet, Van Gogh, Dali, and Jackson Pollack and let’s analyze it for fun. How would we defeat these people and the goal is to let Disney know our experiences. This part was called “Artful Thrawn”.

Then the wonderful book, Aftermath was released and at the very end, a character reminiscent of Thrawn spoke from listening to classical music. Let’s analyze classical music from the masters – Beethoven, Mozart, Holst and Stravinsky, and pretend we are like Thrawn and analyze it to defeat planets.  The goals was to educate people about classical music and motifs that Star Wars uses. This part was called “Music Mondays” since the discussions took place on Mondays.

Concepts about Thrawn were discovered:

  • Thrawn is a synthete. He has synesthesia. It may be a natural Chiss trait. He sees colors in music that aid him to dissect the distinct nuances of cultures for a tactical advantage.
  • Thrawn knows Sabine Wren, in which he has knowledge of her artistic skill.
  • Thrawn knows about the Death Star design flaw and tells Darth Vader about it.

I’ve had fun with the campaign, I never heard anything from Disney Lucasfilm. Then a rumor is released and it is as if everyone rediscovered Thrawn and gets away with being a fan after all the bullying I endured just to make this happen. And do not say lack of knowledge, promotion can only go so far. What I did was one small fan that got tired of the whining by evil “fans” that bully others on social media and create lies. That was my passion and now they must witness my will.

Help me out so I will not be so alone in this positive Star Wars fandom campaign.
