Yeah, but those are retconned by movie scripts, not by you and dime writing fan fiction in your basement.

Why is the idea so offensive to you? Send like a weird time to be a dick about


I'm not offended by the possibility. I'm offended by dime's adamant insistence that it is an obvious truth that we should have all known all along.

It was dime that was annoying me. You just happened to provided me with the quotes I needed to express me anger.

I'd also like to add, nothing in the text of the film contradicts that Obi-Wan secretly used that Kylo/Rey mental connection trick to fuck Padme in her sleep and that he's actually Luke and Leia's father, but that doesn't mean, as dime claims, "it's all right there!"

Obi-Wan used force healing on Luke?

Yeah, okay, maybe.

I'm not defending dime (though the particular "it's right there!" that you're referencing seemed like a pretty clear joke to me) at all. I've already said I never considered Obi Wan was Force Healing Luke. Now that the idea has come up,I don't hate it. I think it works and is a fine interruption of that moment. It's acceptable head canon that could one day become actual canon. Hell, there might already be a book or something that has made it canon.

There may be nothing to directly contradict the bullshit you posted but there is nothing to support it either. That's the difference.

I’m annoying all the right people :)


Meaning of the name Luke is ‘light’ or lightbringer
Did not know that.

Luke /ˈluːk/ is a male given name, and less commonly, a surname. The name Luke is the English form of the Latin name Lucas. It is derived from the Latin name Lucius, and it either means "the great Lucius", or it is a shortened form of the Latin name. Lucius means "the bright one" or "the one born at dawn".
Meaning: "Light"


Then the Rey of it all

Dammit

I also meant for that to be a private message, so I'm glad I didn't say what I REALLY think of dime.

Damn!! Almost makes me wish I didn’t already have them. These could not be recommended any higher. If you really want to know what Lucas had in mind when he started, these are the books you need. Highly informative and exquisitely detailed. Now I want to read them again.

There’s sooooo much extra stuff with the video content. Stuff never even seen before on any of the extras elsewhere.
I thank you for putting them in front of me wease. They’re an essential own for any fan but also anyone even interested in film at all. So thank you.

No. Michael Kaminski. E-book only. I sent the link for it to you a few years ago. Lucasfilm kept him from publishing it, somehow, so he just offered it up for free.
