okay since yall seem to be incapable of identifying fake sj posts here’s a handy guide:

  1. go to the source of the post
  2. check the tags
  3. if it’s tagged with two thousand variations of “otherkin” and “headspace” and “sj” then it is 100% fake no exceptions and if you reblog it unironically you are a bad person

The Princess is everything Luke wants to be. She is socially conscious, whereas he is thrown into things; intellectually, she is a strong leader, and he is just a kid. By

- George Lucas

People often talk about how Han influenced Luke, but we should also look at how Leia influenced Luke.

(via apolla-savre)

I’ve always really liked this idea—that they’re the exact same age, but their different lives have given them very different levels of maturity, and Luke is envious, but fascinated, and idolizes her a bit.

(via another-skywalker)

It’s kind of weird to think of Han as being a big influence compared to Leia.  I mean, yes, they were close.  But it’s made reasonably obvious that close male friends aren’t something Luke’s ever lacked.  If anything, I’d say they’re mutually influential.  Han’s experience and training help temper Luke’s youth and inexperience, and his cynicism demands that Luke account for his own faith. Luke, in turn, cracks Han’s shell with hope and faith, and his earnest belief that Han can be better than what he’s let himself become won’t let him crawl back into the hole he’s dug for himself.

But Leia?

I mean, come on.  Luke’s got these vague intentions to run away and do…something.  He’s dissatisfied with his home life, he’s dissatisfied with the future he sees for himself, and he resents, in an equally vague way, the expectations of his family.  He thinks of joining the rebellion because he’s romanticized it.   He thinks of going to the academy because it’s anywhere but where he’s at.  All of his ambitions amount to this sort of nebulous, Anything But What I Have aspiration.  He goes running after Kenobi on the strength of a shitty, recorded hologram because it seems exciting.  He has no real idea about what this sort of mission would entail, or cost, or achieve.  It’s an Adventure, and he’s bored.

Then he meets Leia, and she’s literally everything he ever had some mindless daydream about being.  Only instead of being a cardboard cut-out hero in some story he’s using to distract himself from a shitty frontier subsistence-farmer life, she’s a real person who’s actually fucking doing it.  She’s a leader.  She’s a fighter.  She’s risking life and limb for a cause she completely and utterly understands and absolutely believes in.  This isn’t some thing she ran away to do because she got sick of being a princess and a senator.  People look up to her, and follow her, and obey her, because she’s spent her life earning it.

He’s looking around and going “Empire bad?  We blow up ships?” and she’s going “Here’s ten political treatises on why the Empire needs to go, here are the details of troop movements and expected reinforcements and supply lines for the upcoming battle, and here are the family photos of everybody in the next ten systems that are going to get stomped into bloody paste in retaliation if we fail here.” He finds her, and within five minutes she’s gone from the princess he’s rescuing because that’s what action heroes do to the person he needs to emulate if he’s ever going to make something of himself.

i think what this all boils down to is: his sister is his hero.

Berry Upside-Down Lavender Pound Cake with Vanilla Sugar Icing

Adapted from Sanura’s lavender pound cake recipe. Icing recipe via The Kitchn.

Ingredients
Cake:
1 c. canola oil
2 1/4 c. sugar
5 eggs
2 T. lavender flowers
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. lemon-lime soda
1 T. lemon and/or lime juice
1 t. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. blueberries & blackberries
Icing:
1 c. powdered sugar
2-6 T. milk
1/2 t. vanilla extract
Procedure
To make the cake, preheat your oven for 325*F. 
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the oil and sugar together with a wire whisk. Add each egg one at a time, whisking the mixture between additions. Mix well until the entire mixture is as yellow as the egg yolks.
In a large bowl, fold the lavender flowers into the flour with a mixing spoon. Slowly pour the soda into the mix, and stir it in thoroughly. Add the citrus juice and vanilla extract, and stir those in thoroughly as well.
Pour the contents of the medium-sized bowl into the large one. Stir it up until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Generously grease a bundt cake pan with either butter or non-stick spray, and pour the batter into it. Let the batter settle, and then scatter the berries around the inside of the pan. Feel free to add more berries if you’d like a thicker layer of them.
Set a timer for 1 hour & 10 minutes, and put the cake in the oven. 
To make the icing, get a bowl—like a cereal bowl—and mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together until the mixture has a mild viscosity. Add more milk as is needed.
When the cake is done, pry its sides from those of the pan with a butter knife, and shake it out onto a large plate. Generously drizzle the icing over the cake, and top with extra lavender if you like.

I made a thing, and you too can all make the thing.

I want to make the thing but no time or energy.
