I’ll be dead before the day is done (x)

#OH MY GOD #i’ve never seen this song applied to the hero before #i’ve never seen a gifset that so perfectly encapsulates that burning righteous anger that fuels luke’s compassion #skywalker the destroyer indeed #i’m so glad #star wars#luke skywalker #also i love how the last gif goes from black and white to color #because yes #that’s exactly it #luke throws away his lightsaber and rejects the black and white view of the world his jedi teachers offered him (fialleril)

# i love this a lot# tbh i especially love it with fialleril’s lens on luke – compassion as an active thing# fuelled by a blend of love and anger that’s… very well suited to burning kingdoms down# and color as the visual shorthand for what he’s doing in this scene# not only rejecting the villain’s proposal about the shape of the world# but also his own (nominally good) teachers and mentors’ model of the world…# star wars# ex umbra in lucem  (@penmeetspage)

You guys have made me very very happy. <3






Lando’s hands though.

Like is that awkward guilt or paternal comfort or grounding in reality or just ‘I’m moving through your space because this cockpit is tiny and I don’t want to startle you’ idek all four probably.

Definitely all four. Lando doesn’t get nearly enough credit for being this actually incredibly compassionate and empathetic person. I mean, in a lot of ways his character arc mirrors that of Luke and Leia – he’s just lost his world and his people, and he’s not sure what will happen to them or if all or even some of them will make out of Bespin alive and safe. He did his absolute best to save them, but the thing is Cloud City was his home, his world, he cared about it, he loved it, he loved his people, and now he’s lost all that. But he’s still there, focusing on what he can save, helping and offering comfort to Luke and Leia (neither of whom he actually knows), watching the life he’s built for himself go up in smoke and just letting it go, because there are people who need his help.

Lando’s the responsible one. He says it as a joke to Han, but he really is. There’s a lot more to his character than just the scoundrel. And I just love him so, so much.

Lando Calrissian is awesome.

There is so much focus on Lando “betraying his friend” and not enough on the fact that he did his best to save thousands of people. Lando didn’t betray Han out of greed, or fear for himself–he did it out of fear for the people of Cloud City he was responsible for.


I just realized that Han never knew that Luke got his hand chopped off while he was in carbonite and I don’t know which path I want to follow with this information:

1. Han seeing Luke’s injured hand after the sail barge battle and thinking that Luke has been a robot the whole time

2. Luke shaking his hand with a super-firm grip and Han just thinking “Wow this kid has gotten…absurdly strong.”

3. Luke just pulls off his hand one day and throws it at Han.

4. Luke picks up a spacechicken carcass and crushes it with his bare hand and Han is intimidated

5. Han says “It’s good to see you’re all right” and then Luke says “well, actually…” and pulls off his hand and Han falls over the back of his chair

6. Han says “It’s good to see you’re all right” and everyone gasps and Leia says “Too soon!” and Han is confused and they all just rag on him

7. Han needs a battery and Luke just opens up his hand and pulls out a battery and gives it to him and Han just stares

8. Luke reappears after a mission with all the synthflesh off and Han says “I thought it was easy but you LOST YOUR HAND?” and Luke just says “Oh, no, I lost this before Endor” and Han is hurt and betrayed.

9. Luke keeps making hand puns and limb puns and raising his right hand to high-five Han and Han just never gets it

10. Luke excitedly tells Han as they’re waiting to be taken to the Sarlacc because it’s been a whole year that he’s wanted to tell the guy.
