    I really liked the outfits of Jori and Gav Daragon. There's an ancient Roman feel to them, I think, yet they're really far more stylish than the gaudy, Egyptian-inspired outfits of the ancient Sith they meet, and the simplicity of their white outfits adds elegance to a dress sense that nonetheless favours a little too much gold.

    It's difficult to find many good politician mindsets in Star Wars, when so many are corrupt, selfish, incompetent caricatures. The moral sense of Leia Organa would be a nice thing to have more in politics today, but she lacks the pragmatism and Machiavellianism that is also a requisite to climb up the greasy ladder - she'd be a powerless ideologue if she were transported to RL, IMO.
    As such, I've always had a soft spot for Uueg Tching. While I think his Atrisian Empire should serve as no example for an optimal government, he clearly serves as the GFFA's Machiavelli analogue, showing a keen eye for the subtle complexities in Star Wars politics that the "good guys" always seem to miss or trample over in their blind idealism.
    "Starve the centre and you reap anarchy. Feed the centre and you breed tyranny. The problem is obvious to every man. A solution has been revealed to no man." That's a quote you'd never hear pass the lips of Leia Oranga, for I'd imagine she'd be focusing on feeding the Rim at the cost of the centre in a flawed attempt to do things that signal morality like bridge the gap between rich and poor, nor would it pass the lips of Palpatine, whose goals were not to create the optimal political philosophy, and it has striking if very basic applications to RL.

    1. What brought you to the EUC?

    Looking for fellow fans mostly. I was at starwars.com for a bit before here, but the posters were getting a bit unpleasant, not very friendly, and someone recommended this beautiful place. And I have never left :p

    2. When did you become a Star Wars fan, how old were you, what hooked you?

    Goodness haha. I literally can't remember a time when I did not love star wars. My very earliest memory is being 3 years old and watching with my big brothers. I loved the fights, the aliens, the music, I thought Luke was cutest boy I ever saw :p I got my first star wars toy (a princess leia figure) when I was 4 and I just wanted to be her haha. As soon as I learned to read I discovered the little star wars section in the library and combined my 2 passions haha. It's been good.

    3. What are you hoping to see most in Episode VII?

    A great plot. I want an interesting story, interesting characters. I want it to be smart.

    4. What book are you reading right now?

    I have been known to read multiple books at once. I'm currently reading Persuasion by Jane Austen, Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood, and Hollow City by Ransom Riggs.

    5. What do you spend time doing when you aren't logged into TFN?

    I like to spend quality time with my bookshelf. Or quality time wandering around bookstores. Quality time with my other bff netflix. Occasionally my friends will demand my presence and I have to go outside.

    Haha the favourites questions! Fair warning I'm horrid at picking a favourite :p I like too many things!

    6. Who is your favorite Author? give us at least one SW author and one non SW author

    Too many! For Star Wars I like Timothy Zahn, I loved the books Jude Watson wrote for younger readers, Michael Stackpole and Aaron Allston have also written some of my favourites. I loved the Young Jedi Knights series that Kevin J. Anderson wrote, really helped me keep up my star wars love when I was younger.

    Non Star Wars? Still so many lol. JK Rowling is an obvious pick, Harry Potter being such a fantastically written series. Her recent mystery novel The Cuckoo's Calling was wonderful and I look forward to more. I enjoy reading any of Jane Austen's work, Shakespeare, John Green, Rainbow Rowell, Neil Gaiman...I could go on lol. A few months back I read S, which was done by JJ Abrams and goodness did it give me some faith in him for our beloved star wars lol. It was a unique reading experience and I highly recommend.

    7. What's your favorite show to watch on Netflix?

    My go to shows tend to be Sherlock, Doctor Who, House, Downton Abbey, or The IT Crowd.

    8. What is your favorite SW book and why?

    Again I could never pick just one. I love rereading the new jedi order series, the preferred ones being Star by Star, Dark Journey, Enemy Line 1 and 2. I recently read Scoundrels and that was fantastic, such a fun read.

    9. Who is your favorite SW character and why?

    I've always had a soft spot for Luke, he'll always be one of my favourites. Adore Tenel Ka, Jaina, and Leia. Love my strong lady jedi :p

    10. What is your favorite waffle topping/s?

    If I'm at home I tend to just eat them plain, but If I go out I go all out lol. Strawberries, blueberries, whip cream and chocolate sauce.

    Last I checked the thread title it said "Now interviewing Warrior_Goddess!" not Falcon. Let the interviewee answer his/her own questions, thank you.

    11. Describe your perfect day? What would you do,eat, who would you spend time with?

    Oooh, let's see. I suppose the answer to this would be ever changing depending on the mood I'm in, but right now a perfect day would be a lake day with my girlfriends. I have been yearning for one since the weather got nice lol. I would wake up around 7 or 8 and then read until my lazy friends finally drag themselves out of bed around 10 or 11. Then we eat pancakes and waffles and probably cookies. We'd go swimming and canoeing at the lake for a while then eat pizza for lunch. The next 12 hours are then spent watching disney movies/eating chips/playing card games/dancing in the kitchen.

    12. What are 3 questions you'd ask Luke Skywalker if you could meet him?

    - If you had known from the beginning that Vader was your father do you think you still would have chosen to side with the rebels?
    - Did you prefer your one-on-one training with Yoda or would you have liked to learn in a group environment like the academy?
    - Marry me?

    13. Do you have any exciting plans this summer? If so share

    Pretty much what I described as a perfect day :p Summer is very short here so I guess I'll take advantage of that and try to be outside a bit. There's a fair/carnival type thing that comes every summer and I always get excited for that, I love going on rides and eating cotton candy and corn dogs all day :p Other than that my summer will be filled with walks and reading.

    14. What three planets would you like to visit most in the GFFA?

    Coruscant, Bespin, Dathomir.

    15. If you could live for a day in the GFFA what time period would it be, what would you do, who would you want to meet?

    I don't think I would be too picky on the time lol. I would just love to see all the different technology and species, so I suppose I would go somewhere like Coruscant and just see the sights. Sounds a bit boring, but I'd just want to soak it all in.


    Thank you for all the lovely questions Runner!


    DarthIshyZ: Pretty much what Falcon said. The icon started it :p

    How does one get invited to the lake? I like swimming and Disney movies and if you feed me enough cookies I might even dance in a kitchen.

    Anakin Solo had a friend who was a Melodie, which is basically a mermaid. So that one :p

    I am unfamiliar with it.

    You may have to travel back in time and be high school besties with us. But we can throw mock lake parties in the BMC :p

    ah lol. After a quick read through I've decided I probably won't attempt it, as I am allergic to most nuts :p

    Well now someone with their books not in storage really needs to help with what the Corellian sweet Rum cake is ;)

    Until then, What is your favorite fiction inspired desert?

    hmm, not sure I've attempted too many! I used to make wookiee cookies from the star wars cookbook and they were yummy. I also have lightsaber popsicle moulds :p

    Favourites are hard! I like them all!

    Nothing is coming to mind, sorry for having boring answers to your questions but I find there are so many already in the star wars universe I have not really been left wanting.

    If you could change something in SW, what would it be?
    The entire Anakin/Padme relationship. You've got this wonderful smart woman who ran a world at the age of 14 and then her character just became disappointing by the end. I feel as though a lot more could have been done with her.
