I've wrote a bit to Mikey/girl!Mikey.
Yay for Get Real being on tonight < 3
Ok, as promised here's the Star Wars picspam. Be warned, this isn't dial-up friendly. Mostly this is for mikeyface
Also, I've tried to keep it major spoiler-free for those who haven't seen. Note too that Star Wars matters as much to me as Harry Potter does to some or you, perhaps more so.
Star Wars is set in a galaxy far, far away. It's set over the course of 36 years. Although the title has War in it, Episode I technically doesn't have a war (though it has an invasion and battle) and the other Episodes show two seperate ones (The Clone Wars in II and III and The Galactic Civil War in IV, V and VI). There's two basic orders to watch the films. The first's order of release, which is IV, V, VI, I, II and III. The second is by number (I, II, III, IV, V, VI). It doesn't matter which order you watch it really as it's all preference.
A basic plot of all 6films would be the Jedi vs the Sith. The Jedi are guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, while the Sith are dark side users who want to rule the galaxy and destroy the Jedi.
Ok, first let's start with the characters (both major and minor) in order of appearence. This assumes you're watching in numerical order.
This is Qui-Gon Jinn. He's Obi-Wan's Jedi Master (which has incited loads of slash). He's sent, along with Obi-Wan, to negotiate the end of the Trade Federation's blockade of Naboo.
This is Obi-Wan Kenobi. He's apprentice of Qui-Gon Jinn. He goes on to train both Anakin and Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force. During the Clone Wars he's a General of the Republic, fighting in various battles across the galaxy.
This is Nute Gunray, Viceroy and leader of the Trade Federation. He's manipulated into blockading and invading the peaceful world of Naboo, and arranged later assassination attempts on Padme Amidala's life.
This Darth Sidious. He's a Sith master and the person who's behind the majority of what happens in the films. He manipulates everyone from the shadows to get what he wants: destruction of the Jedi and to rule the galaxy.
This is Senator of Naboo and later, Supreme Chancellor of the Republic Palpatine. He becomes Chancellor by getting Padme to believe that the Senate and it's leaders are corrupt.
This is Queen of Naboo (and later it's Senator) Padme Amidala. She has more costume changes then anyone else in the films. She lvoes democracy, peace and her people. Although she tries her best to help bring peace to the galaxy she fails and will fight if she has to.
This is Jar Jar Binks, a Gungan from Naboo who ended up representing his people in the Seante. He's perhaps the most hated character in the films, with most fans having hoped he would die in Episode III though he didn't.
This is R2-D2, an astromech droid. Basically his job's to repair ships. He has saved every major character from death at least once. In Episode III he totally kicks ass. R2 (along with C-3P0 and Obi-Wan) has the distinction of being one of the only characters in all 6 films.
This is Darth Maul. He's a Zabrak Sith who's sent to track down Padme and to keep an eye on the Trade Federation. He's Sidious' apprentice.
This is Anakin Skywalker
This is C-3P0, a droid built by Anakin who becomes R2's friend and companion, although he's a constant worrier. He can speak in over 6 million languages.
This is Jabba the Hutt, a crimeload on the desert planet of Tatooine.
This Yoda. He's a very short Jedi master. He's 900 years old and in charge of Jedi training before the Clone Wars. He later trains Luke on Dagobah.
This is Zam Wesell, a shape-shifting bounty hunter hired to kill Padme Amidala, although she tries twice, she fails both times.
This Jango Fett, bounty hunter and template of the clone army.
This is Bail Organa, a pacifist Senator from Alderaan he opposes the war and aopts Leia.
This is Boba Fett, Jango's son. He takes over from his father as a bounty hunter and becomes the most famous in the galaxy.
This is Count Dooku, he's a former Jedi that becomes the leader of a Seperatist movement that wants to split from the Republic
This is the Jedi Aayla Secura. She's unique as she was first in comics before the films, but she was so liked that she was put into the films.
This is Nautolan jedi master Kit Fisto.
This Durge, a bounty hunter in the Clone Wars. He helps lead the Seperatist forces against the clones on Muunlist.
This is Asajj Ventress, a Dark Jedi during the Clone Wars. She's sent by Sidious to test Anakin's power.
This is General Grievous, leader of the Sepratist droid armies. He's not a droid, but is acvtually a cyborg, but very little of his former body remains. He takes pride in killing Jedi and collecting their lightsabers.
This is Chewbacca or Chewie. He's a Wookiee from Kashyyyk that helps defend his planet when it's attacked during the Clone Wars. He later joins Han Solo as his co-pilot and friend aboard the Falcon.
This is Darth Vader, Sidious' apprentice after the Clone Wars. He's the public face of the Empire and will kill anyone that displeases or fails him. Like Grievous, he's a cyborg with his body hidden behind his armor.
This is Princess Leia, Senator of Alderaan. Like her adoptive father, she's a pacifist at heart but she is willing to fight for what she believes in. She's also prone to being captured, as she's Vader's captive before the Battle of Yavin and again after the Battle of Hoth and also becomes Jabba's prisoner shortly before the Battle Of Endor.
This is Luke Skywalker, son of Anakin. Episodes IV, V and VI are mostly about him and his path to become a Jedi. He starts as a simple moisture farmer on Tatooine and goes on to save Leia and the galaxy in general.
This Han Solo, a smuggler that becomes a hero of the Rebellion. Though he starts of being cynical about the Rebellion's ideal's, he warms to them and becomes on of their greatest assets.
Finally we have Lando Calrissian. He's the administrator of Bespin's Cloud City during the Civil War. Though he tries to remain neutral he joins the Rebels after saving Leia.
