The Age of X-Man is a lot more interesting than the disassembled arc. The team that is writing it are fans both Nate Grey and the X-Universe (and it shows thank god!). I know its a bit early but whats your thoughts?
Hey CBG, sorry to bug you but there's a poster on KMC who is curious about the interview with Mike Carey where he said that the Presence wasn't breaking the 4th wall/talking about the writers when he said he was shaped by forces external to himself. Do you have the link?
I miss talking to you and that's on me. The last, let's see....started in Nov 2014 but wasn't too bad til Feb 2015 and then everything went on hold while I juggled hell in a handbasket but it's passed of a couple days ago. Back to regular problems to deal with. So I have to pull your skype tab and check messages and reply but know you've been in my thoughts, frequently, and I worry about you and hope for you (good things only...I don't, for example, hope you get genital warts or lose a button on your favorite vest) to be well (or improving) and I hope to talk soon with you. Until then, here is a hug for each time I though of you during this busier-than-usual time (margin of error +/- 30 hugs because our forums posting parameters will not allow me to share the amount of hugs I have to give. Our forums are cuddle-fascists)
Past EU is still official. And part of the "Legends" universe or rather continuity now, but still OFFICIAL. Like Pre-Crisis vs Post-Crisis in DC. TOR remains to be seen since the last expansion is canon since it was authenticated by the Story Group directly and credited as such.
Losing stuff like Plagueis novel, Bane Trilogy, and pre-modern EU Star Wars fluff still seems extreme. Mara no longer being Luke's wife is also extremely painful pill to swallow.
On the plus side, the movie novelizations are still canon, and all further future works will be irredeemably as canon as the films and TV works according to the Story Group.
They were all pretty cool :3 of course I enjoyed kitty dream, and then there was that neat one that looked kind of like a merman guy. I liked that there were lady dreams, and there also seemed to be a dream with a technicolor rainbow coat. I did not like clown dream
What about you
Lucas is probably laughing his way to the bank. I'm near the breaking point.
Shitting on 35 years of continuity, lore, and history that makes part up of my identity and impact as a fan goes too far. Heir to the Empire, the New Jedi Order, Dawn of the Jedi, Empire, Rebellion, Knights of the Old Republic, The Old Republic, Legacy, The Hand of Thrawn, its all gone.
Sure it wasn't perfect. Sure there were blemishes, some contradictions and inconsistencies, but no massive franchise is perfectly maintained 100% of the time.
A world where Thrawn and the Rogue/Wraith Squadron books don't exist in the official canon, which Lucas so often "borrowed" from, is horrifying. I imagine for you as well, this is painful experience.
