The One True Dark Lord of the Sith: A Speculative Analysis on Emperor Palpatine and His Role In The Rise of Skywalker

Obviously, we know very little about The Rise of Skywalker and what it entails for our heroes and villains. There have been some leaks and some guesses, but let’s face it: nobody managed to predict the title and nobody managed to predict the return of Sheev Palpatine.

The fandom, even the casual audience, is brimming with questions. Isn’t Palpatine dead? Where has he been for the last thirty years? Is he alive? A ghost? Something else? And most importantly, what is his connection to Snoke and Kylo Ren?

We have no answers yet, and I am not going to pretend that I’m any more enlightened than you are.

But I’m just as curious, and what does a writer do when they’re curious about something? Why, they write about it!

This is the first in my speculative analysis series on The Rise of Skywalker. The series will cover everything from the fate of the Jedi, to the Resistance, the First Order, the nature of the Force and of course all major characters. I chose to start with Palpatine because he is both the biggest surprise so far, and because he’s a fascinating character in his own right.

Short Film Festivals

EWIAN

In the last two weeks my music video for the song ‘Drown to Live’ was shown on several film festivals in Germany.
I’m happy about that and want to share some impressions of the events.

My favored film was ‘The Nine Billion Names of God’, based on the eponymous science fiction short story by British writer Arthur C. Clarke (1953).

The Rise of Skywalker Trailer Analysis

Let me be straight here: I left the Star Wars fandom. I cancelled my subscription to Star Wars: The Old Republic. I uninstalled both Knights of the Old Republic games from my computer. I haven’t watched a Star Wars film since The Last Jedi.

Jeffery Jacob Abrams, however, is an emotionally manipulative bastard who’s out to get me personally, and so he cooked up this little trailer. And guess what? I’m back. Yay me.

Join me under the cut as I analyze this newest bit of emotional trauma.

Testuya Nomura and Brian Mitsoda, You’ve Stolen My Productivity!

Yeah, so guess what I’ve been doing for the past three weeks or so?

Between That Announcement and buying the total Kingdom Hearts package (don’t judge me), I haven’t gotten any work done.

On the other hand, I got a lot done beforehand, so when I resume working in April I should zip right along.

See you next week!

A Wild Generation Has Appeared!

Goooooood morning internet!

Over this cold yet? I sure am. And it’s not quite done with us yet. Another week to go.

Speaking of cold, I’m going to be frank: I didn’t get much done in February due to the cold. I was shut down, so to speak.

So everything on my to-do list from the last time I spoke to you? Yeah, that’s been pushed back a month. I’m still writing, though, and I will have new chapters up and ready soon! Promise.

In the meantime, though, I want to talk about Pokémon: Sword and Shield.

Needed a Break

The Twelve Caesars

After the holidays and the tumblr platform blew up, I needed to take a long break from my blog. However, I am back and I am thinking about starting an interior design business for those with novels. More on that soon. But I also am trying to cut some internet time out of my life. So, I won’t be stalking my WordPress to see who re-posted what.

I hope to write more about Rome soon-ish once I sort out my life. 😀

Anyways, I’m alive and doing well. I hope you all had good New Year!

The Eleventh Film – Horror/Science Fiction Flash Fiction Series

The Eleventh Film VIII

Spent.
Bereft.
Devoid.
Shorn.
Indigent.
With nothing left, the world began to slowly exhaust itself.
And that was when the first transmission was received.
Two voices. Discordant harmony.
Looping continually.
Heard all around the globe.
It became more apparent with every listen that the world was listening to the sound of its own demise. There was nothing else to do but accept this as the end it truly was.
There was a hope that once shone deep within us all. That all these questions might simply resolve themselves over time as questions are wont to do. But it was the absence of discernible answers that made the questions themselves fade from view.
Leaving only empty.

COMBO!

Greetings, fellow true believers! Another week, another blog post.

First things first. As you all know by now, I am uploading all my novels to Smashwords and Lulu.com in preparation for breaking with Amazon entirely. Robots and Vampires: A Cyborg’s Odyssey is already up on Smashwords, and I will have both The Standard Tech Case Files: The Black Coats and The Dead and the Damned up by the end of this week. All three will be on Lulu.com by the end of the month.

Beginning in February, I will go back to writing my fanfiction and the next novel in the Standard Tech Case Files series. Also starting in February, I will have new rewards for my patrons on Patreon, so be sure to check those out! More details later.

Today, though, I want to talk about something else for a minute. Specifically, I want to talk about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Join me under the cut!
