This is my own little blog devoted to Star Wars, Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher, Carrie and Paul Simon's "crazy love" (Paul's term), cats, and various other things.

My user name is a deliberate misspelling of "triskadekaphile," which is someone who likes the number 13 (aka the opposite of a triskadekaphobe, which is someone who fears it). I personally think "trikadekaphile" sounds better. So THERE.

The Fact That A Child Died On The Scandal Season Finale Made Me Literally Want To Cry… That Was The Biggest Most Disturbing Shock. After Learning He Was Actually Fitz’s Son The Whole Time & Then The Next Minute He’s Murdered… Just Cruel!!! Made No Sense To Me At All! This Storyline Did Nothing But Depress Me. It Was Honestly So Sad.

It was heartbreaking. First Fitz found out about his father raping Mellie, and comforted her. I teared up when she said, “I fought. I fought.” And she told him she’d done a paternity test and Jerry was his, not his father’s, and he said, “It doesn’t matter.”
(I’m not a Mellitz shipper, but then, neither am I an Olitz shipper. I just like Mellie and I like seeing Fitz be tender with her. Bellamy Young has given some terrific performances over the past three seasons. Hopefully she’ll get some recognition for this episode.)
Then Jerry gets killed. I did not anticipate that. I thought he’d just get very sick, maybe put in a coma. It was devastating when he died, and I teared up again when I saw a sedated Mellie and a sedated Karen leaning on each other, as shown in the middle pic.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN (April 19, 1981)

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)

Trisha Biggar designed this amazing blue wave-shape silk devore cloak with a sequin embellished blue and green ombre-dyed silk mousseline under-dress for Natalie Portman’s role as Padmé Amidala.

I think Biggar must have got her inspiration from this Pre-Raphaelites painting ‘Ophelia’ by British artist Sir John Everett Millais. 

And here’s another Ophelia image that may have been an inspiration for Ms. Biggar:

Some more gorgeous fanart by Leela Starsky. I asked her to do a “double wedding” for Han and Leia and Anakin and Padmé. I love how she makes Endor the backdrop for H/L’s wedding, because it contradicts the god-awful crap in the EU, and because I always thought they’d get married shortly after the events of ROTJ. In fact, Lucas toyed with the idea of ending ROTJ with their wedding, but decided that it made the ending too specific.

Here’s some gorgeous fanart done by Leela Starsky. It’s an older Han and Leia (presumably like we’ll see in Episode VII), based on a photo of Harrison and Carrie taken in 2002, when they were attending the BAFTA awards and Lucas and Spielberg were being honored. I like how she makes the green lights of the city reflect in their hair, and that Leia is dressed in an elaborate gown and has an elaborate hairpiece like her mother Padmé would have worn.

I’ve encountered many Paul fans online who insist he never truly loved Carrie, or she him. This pic is Exhibit 1 to prove otherwise. (For those who might claim he was faking it, and some have, I reply that Paul was not anywhere near that good an actor — I’ve seen his acting and I know.) And there are plenty of other photos to prove that they really loved each other.

Excerpt from Paul’s song “Think Too Much”

trikadekaphile:

(Reposting)

Have you ever experienced a period of grace
When your brain just takes a seat behind your face
And the world begins The Elephant Dance
Everything’s funny
Everyone’s sunny
You take out your money
And walk down the road
That leads me to the girl I love
The girl I’m always thinking of
But maybe I think too much
And I ought to just hold her
Stop trying to mold her
Maybe blindfold her
And take her away
