Have people still not figured out that IF YOU WANT THE TRAIN TO STOP YOU NEED TO INDICATE SO WITH THE MILLION LITTLE BELL RINGERS ON THE TRAIN HOLY SHIT
Someone needs to open her Eyes.
1. Okay. Perkele- seriously. What a breath of fresh air. An older female character who isn’t relegated solely to the support roles of ‘somebody’s mother’/’wisewoman’/’meanspirited old harpy’. She’s still witty, she’s still capable and she’s still sexual. Sure, her wealth of experience informs her character, but you use it in such a way that it makes her more formidable- as opposed to her best days being behind her. She’s still going strong. In a culture where female characters are largely invisible beyond being a plot device after 40, she’s a fantastic figure to have in the fandom. Thank you.
2. Building on that, the fact that, physically- yeah, she is older- and it isn’t an issue. The fact she has physical weaknesses, the fact that- in your own words- she’s pretty dildoes at using a lightsaber. The fact it hasn’t got in the way of her success, and that you don’t need to be a lithe leather-bandaged teenage Twi’lek acrobat to be a successful Sith; I think it’s great. You play to her other strengths. You make a real point of the fact that there’s more to being Sith than flashy duels. It’s about wits, power plays, knowing when to act and when to be patient.
3. Hanneke is pretty rad. She doesn’t take shit, but what’s more- neither does her mother, and it’s really nice to see attitudes/traits shared between generations of characters like that. It adds credence, flavour and character. Shows it’s been thought about. It doesn’t hurt that she’s a badass on top of it, though.
why thank you!
A mighty need…
