Oh, come on–Leia’s a bad-ass. Who could forget that she’s the one constantly showing the boys how to use their weapons? There’ll be plenty of rollicking action, but it all has to come from her character. She’s not rude, she’s direct … she’s easily exasperated … She’s not bossy, she’s–okay, well, she’s a little bossy, but she is a princess.

[ … ]

The movie aspects that are key to me are her take-charge attitude and her justified unwillingness to be mansplained to. The key — and I think we’ve got a good handle on it — is to make it clear those are strengths, not quirks, not traits that make her “difficult” in any way. She’s not mean, she’s not snarky, but she is authoritative — which, for her, in this story, is a challenge since you’d think having your entire planet done away with might erode any claim you have to royal fiat.

Mark Waid on Leia

well I’m excited

BUT WHY GREG LAND

Fic | A Year of Reading Dangerously

Title: A Year of Reading Dangerously
Pairing: Nora/Aruendiel
Length: 6k
Summary: And, offscreen, Nora decides that “No where / Lives a woman true, and fair” is a load of utter garbage.
Notes: Trigger warning for mention of sexual assault. Nothing graphic, but there is a very direct reference to canon events that I wouldn’t want to take anyone by surprise.

Anyway: LOTTE. Remember when you won that Help Japan auction years and years ago? And for years and years I’ve been like I WILL FINALLY WRITE YOU STORY and it never happened and then you mentioned that you wanted Thinking Woman’s Guide fic and I said I would have it done before you left for Europe and it shockingly wasn’t done and probably I imagine you lost all hope because, like, I got eaten by beards? Be hopeless no longer, for I FINALLY WROTE YOU STORY. I’m sorry. You’re welcome.

(P.S. Many thanks to thirddeadlysin for beta duty!)

UNAPOLOGETICALLY STRONG: MARK WAID & TERRY DODSON TALK ‘STAR WARS: PRINCESS LEIA’ [INTERVIEW]
By Andy Khouri
Earlier this year, it was announced somewhat controversially but unsurprisingly that the Star Wars comic book license would be leaving Dark Horse, its home of more than 20 years, and moving to Marvel Comics. This was not a surprise, as once Marvel corporate parent Disney bought Star Wars owner Lucasfilm, fans felt it was only a matter of time before Marvel announced that it would produce its own original Star Wars comics for the first time decades. But no one knew what exactly Marvel would actually dowith Star Wars.
Saturday at Comic-Con International, Marvel announced no fewer than three new Star Wars series to the San Diego crowd: two ongoings titled Star Wars and Star Wars: Darth Vader, and a miniseries called Star Wars: Princess Leia.
Princess Leia is, of course, one of the most famous characters in science fiction, and very arguably the most famous female character. She’s iconic, recognizable, and quotable. Leia is a character with a lot of implied depth that the Star Wars movies didn’t fully explore, even across three films in which she appeared. Of course, hardcore Star Wars fans could tell you a lot about Leia’s numerous adventures in the Expanded Universe of novels, comics and games, but as evidenced by Marvel’s plans to start anew with its own adventures that are fully canonical with the films and new animated series, there’s something to be said for offering film fans a fresh start with this most important character.
That start is to be facilitated by some of American superhero comics’ most popular creators: writer Mark Waid and penciller Terry Dodson, who along with editor Jordan D. Whitespoke with ComicsAlliance about their auspicious new gig.

what is this? why is it so beautiful? ;__;

A sister they had, Galadriel, most beautiful of all the house of Finwë; her hair was lit with gold as though it had caught in a mesh the radiance of Laurelin.

azula is the raddest and baddest, always always always.  this lighting was mad difficult to work with, though—it’s so subtle on the face that i feel like some of the features are lost.  ah, well.
