    I think that Star Wars died the second disney bought the franchise. I might be taking a wholly prejudicial stance here, but i feel that any second a Full Throttle sequel might appear, starring those battery-powered (i think they were a thinly-veiled duracell reference) bunnies, as an attempt to try to challenge MLP's market dominance...

    Btw, grey has sorta become a trope of its own, lately, given the Grey Wardens and the emperor in wh40k, with the symbol of chaos stamped on his forehead shining aura... Has disney touched the Grey Jedi theme? I think Kyle Katarn turned out to be one, but i don't remember for sure...

    Wait, J. J. Abrams is directing again? Never mind, lost nearly all interest in the movie.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    ok i admit it the trailer gave me chills
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Wait, WTF? I often say that, to me, "hailing victory" in Dies Irae is no different than "hailing Sithis" in the Elder Scrolls series (like how watching Michael Wittmann on the Eastern Front of WWII is no different in my eyes than watching Zhang Liao on the eastern front of the 3 Kingdoms War AKA Hefei), but apparently, imbeciles (yes, Dynasty Warriors reference) might call me a Nazi, anyway. I wish Dies Irae Pantheon did come out, just so that I can trigger people by joining the Throne of Gold. FYI, I actually don't like the Galactic Empire or the First Order, but it's because of their cost-inefficient death machines (though that might be a reference to gas chambers following the "space Nazi" motif). As I often mention, the Emperors of China made entire minority tribes disappear without the use of such devices. Just ground troops and/or having the executioners "exercise their biceps" for 72 hours straight. Of course, China is much better practiced than Germany at this kind of thing.

    It's amazing how your posts always manage to be a jumble of incoherent and childish ramblings. This one really hit it out of the park.

    OK, I'll break it down for you:
    1. To some people, probably, edgy black garbed death fetishists = Nazis.
    2. To some people, choosing Sith options in one of those open world SW games makes you a RL Nazi.
    3. To me, Zhang Liao and Michael Wittmann are equally badass.
    4. Chinese Empires had more cost-efficient killings than German and galactic ones.

    For me, it's to treat the Force, like cooking. All savory dishes require some sugar. All sweet dishes require some salt. It's also meaningless to completely conform to the light or the dark. Most people know that the Jedi get triggered whenever someone uses dark side powers. However, Kylo Ren, when speaking to Vader's helmet, says that he still feels the "lure" of the light, like it's a bad thing. Both are wrong. If it's necessary to use the dark, do it. If you feel like doing something light, that's fine, too.

    I would bring up the ol' "Lucas' intention was that Balance = No Dark Side" but then Disney seem determined to undermine that so perhaps it's a pointless argument. :/

    The same reason that Seto Kaiba destroyed the 4th Blue Eyes White Dragon, so they couldn't be used against him.

    Snoke was Sidious, Kylo is Sidious, Rey is Sidious...Why so Sidious?

    But in all seriousness, the long standing theory was that Matt Smith is either playing a young Emperor or a clone or something related like that.
