Project Y4 is OUT NOW! (Version R02d)
As Sunday drew to a close I had completed 18 of my 34 festive features. Which is simultaneously encouraging and demoralising; I knew 34 was a stretch, but I managed to batter through just over half of them anyway. Well, maybe I smudged a few, but I compensated by overstepping the bounds on others.
Needless to say, the end of the festive break does not mean the end of the line. There is still work to be done!
Okay, maybe I lied last time when I said Attack of the Clones was merely average -- it does contain an absolute howler of a romance sub-plot. Anakin catches up with childhood crush Padmé Amidala and tries to win her over with the creepiest lines in the galaxy, but instead of rightly punching his lights out and running for the hills, Padmé... f-falls in love with h-him?
It doesn't make narrative sense, let alone human sense. Alas, we can come up with all the "it would have worked if..." scenarios we like in our cosy, rarified little Writer's Room (errr, Chris's lounge), but this is and always will be canon. Blergh.
We start to drift into some Episode III chat in here so apologies for melting our own continuity. It's an... er... homage to the source material...?
