Potential SWAG77 Storyline In 2014

When the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 roleplay performs, we plan our performances to reflect our fan made stories and headcanons.

This storyline was the strengthen and embolden the presence of MARA JADE as a character in STAR WARS REBELS. She would be ~13 years old. We were trying develop key personality traits of a 13 year old versus the adult version.

She was to infiltrate the REBELS and destroy them. That did not happen and in the Disney Lucasfilm version, it’s totally different. As SWAG77 we are FINE with that, but at least we attempted to write a story, than complained how bad we think Star Wars is and join toxic fandom.

Some toxic fans do not care about our vision because of Dunning-Kruger effects. They think they know ALL ABOUT STAR WARS and no one knows more than them. These fans also perform in GODMOD ways which KILLS roleplay and destroys public performances. It’s worse than a TROLLS treatment, because a TROLL just disagrees; whereas a GODMODDER is in on the performance game and sells out all the secrets to the public. You can trust a TROLL to be an asshole. You can NEVER TRUST A GODMODDER!

 

The point of this story arc was to get ships better than the Empire’s Star Destroyers and anything else they crafted together. Of course, the Rebels would never have that technology and that is kind of the point of the story as a lead in to A New Hope. The Rebel Alliance heard stories about a new ship under construction of immense power than no one had ever seen (of course that is the Death Star) and they felt if they had better starships to fight against this “unknown entity” they would be fine against this weapon. They were wrong.

The KUATIS built the hyperdrive engines for the Imperial Star Destroyers. The Emperor sensed some malfeasance by the KUATIS, he wanted a secret way in to their very private royal family. The Sultan’s grand-daughter to the SHESH family, VIQI SHESH was having her 6 (or age appropriate) year old birthday party and top galactic celebs were to be invited. Of course the Emperor could not make it. But he sent MARA JADE to go undercover with her REBEL friends and see what the SHESH’s were doing.

Of course there back-up plans to back-up plans. Of course there are other forces at stake here to show off to the Emperor who is a sadist and enjoys conflict. He gets off on conflict. But here’s a KID’S version of a back-up plan.

Come to find out, that the “hyperfuel” itself was being ORGANICALLY SYNTHESIZED AND FULLY PROCESSED by an unknown seller from the OUTER RIM off the TINGEL ARM…

The MARA JADE team managed to steal an entire slat of hyperfuel and put it on ALDERAAN — which feeds into another headcanon we have — another reason why the Emperor destroyed Alderaan was because it was infected by the YUUZHAN VONG BIOTS!

Here our touchpoints in the roleplay that we needed to perorm and prove.

1. The Rebels are fighting to get a ship in space. But aren’t able to do it. They have to retreat.

2. Then a surprise communique invites Mara to a special birthday party for the Shesh’s on Kuat.

3. If Mara doesn’t go to the “princess party” she will be ratted out. But if Mara goes to there, she has to take Ezra and Sabine definitely and possibly Hera as her “governess”.

4. But while they’re there, they discover there are plans for a new hyperdrive engine. So they can steal it and get it to Alderaan so they can retrofit it for their own starships.

As SWAG77 we never got around to do this roleplay due to a racist performer having Dunning-Kruger and hating aspects of Star Wars.

You cannot HATE and convincingly roleplay perform Star Wars unless you are trying to be a MARY SUE or GARY STU. We find most people LIVE through their roleplay characters rather than be themselves. Our research after 10 years is a roleplayer’s sociality suffers in real life. It hurts their education, their careers and their family life. It is an unsustainable personality. It is why SWAG77 auditions, perform test cases and re-writes in the draft performances. Why SWAG77 rehearses and restricts membership only to trained people to reflect our work. It is the standard we set and we think people can reach them if they want to.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 MARA JADE campaign could not be performed after our failure to understand our primary mission.

We perform strong, accurate and authentic stories on social media to reflect the spirit and vision of all Star Wars.

Where Star Wars fans start.

Perhaps another roleplaying group can take our efforts and do better. SWAG77 doesn’t mind retcons or re-writes when we know. We just want attribution for our efforts.

The is a tiny snippet into what we really do in SWAG77.

They need to decide what to do with the baby before the Sith learn of this child and who the father is.

But Bo-Katan does wants her daughter to be raised like a Mandalorian and proud of her culture and heritage. However, Obi-Wan thinks it will be unsafe because his daughter is so strong in the Force.

What will they do?

//fan sense & screenwriter sense — 2 different things Obi-Bo ship will never happen cos #StarWarsRebels

Fans want Obi-Bo Ship – Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bo-Katan relationship. But the Star Wars screenwriters won’t do that because it will not sell tickets, or Nielsen ratings. A plot point using race as a factor sells for the sensationalism. Don’t think so? Shonda Rhimes “Scandal” with Kerry Washinton or “Sleepy Hollow” with Nicole Beharie. We get was George Lucas wants. That’s fine. But it makes it tough to abandon these tie ins made years ago & seem like it’ll come together.

But it’s fun RPing it this way. It give the Fandom geek out.

Obi-Wan Kenobi hooks up with the sister of his OTP and they get busy and have a daughter named Mara Jade after Bo-Katan’s mother, which was her Death Watch name – her mother’s real name was Arla Fett – the sister of Jango Fett, the aunt of Boba Fett. Because Arla had gone crazy, she is the one who gave Mara Jade to the Emperor.

We weren’t able to do the abduction RP.

How come Obi-Wan and Bo didn’t try to save their daughter, Mara? Because Obi-Wan had Luke. Bo-Katan didn’t have the squad to extract and keep her. Every time she tried it, Mara would run back to the Emperor who Force Bonded with her tightly and the Imperial fleet would bombard the planet she was taken to. Bo-Katan is lucky she did not die. Obi-Wan could not risk his cover for Vader to hunt him down and take his son, Luke.

At least that’s the way we RP the story.

Tell us what you think?

We’re testing the efficacy of how #MaraJade can be worked into #StarWarsRebels (@SWRebels77) by #RP #StarWars

We have a decent global treatment script. Great #RPers working hard. We need more help and more good RPers willing to write. We’re performing our RP on Twitter. But Facebook, Tumblr and Google+ accounts link the posts.

We have preliminary metrics that look promising.

Great piece on Mara Jade. #SWEU

womenofstarwars:

While rereading The Last Command recently, it finally struck me why Mara is a much-beloved character. I’ve never thought hard on it before because I started reading Star Wars books when I was 13 and just kind of accepted that Mara was a fucking badass and what more do you need to know? There’s all kinds of explanations, from the idea that she’s a “strong female character” to Zahn’s explanation that “she’s also flawed and searching and—dare we say it?—human. At the same time, she’s highly competent at her job. One simplistic answer might be that women can identify with her, while men would like to have her at their side in trouble” (1) (which is kind of a problematic answer on a number of levels but that’s another issue). What made Mara likeable and relatable for me in this arc is her struggle for her own agency against the men in her life and the fact that she fought as hard as she could to maintain her autonomy and won.
