A continuity snarl is something that is manifestly canon but makes no sense according to TV tropes.org. It's like Superman torturing Jimmy Olsen with lemonade while he's dying in the desert during the Silver Age or the time Batman killed with a gun. The EU has something of a history with continuity snarls recently. *cough*FORCE UNLEASHED*COUGH* *COUGH*The Clone Wars*cough* *choke*Jacen's fall*choke* This is a thread not to bury the Snarl but celebrate him. Basically, it's a thread to talk about the stuff in the timeline that manifestly DOES NOT MAKE *ANY* gosh darn sense either timeline-wise, thematically, or otherwise. Yet, it's not here to COMPLAIN about these things but talk about what you liked and didn't like about them. Because, really, at the end of the day it makes no sense for Luke Skywalker to more or less adopt Ken Palpatine as his little brother and serve as his guardian only for him to never be seen again. For Starkiller to be everything and a bag of chips to the Rebellion but no one remember the guy. For Jacen Solo to go from lovable doofus to annoying 1st year philosophy student to Messiah to Sith Lord. The Rules for the Thread are: 1. Bring up something that doesn't make sense for you in the timeline. Discuss why and how. 2. Talk about its place in canon and the contradiction. 3. Say what you like about it anyway. Hatedom need not apply.
