How SWAG77 Chooses to Roleplay (RP)

Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG 77)

Ezra space-1

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 chooses to roleplay (RP) a particular way that provides strong, accurate and authentic performances on social media.

Our guidelines are listed on this site: http://bit.ly/guidelines77

Support our efforts: http://bit.ly/SWStuffWAG77

We go at great strides to vet all our members to see if they know how to roleplay in a professional manner, willing to follow the guidelines as we have set them, and have a strong desire to read the literature, write scripts and fan-fictions. We cannot have subversion to our processes because of the amount of work required to organize several social media accounts that are managed and are under monetization through the main company, Ariafya LLC.

We expect all new fans to the SWAG77 to review our sites, our writing, our headcanons, our fanfictions, and our roleplays.

We expect all new fans to participate in our Q&A’s in a fair manner.

We expect…

#StarWars Fan Art by unapproved Disney Lucasfilm fan artists

Fan Art for SWAG77 Get Thrawn In Campaign by Panda Capuccino.

Fan art is something to behold, especially when it is in our fandomverse. And attribution is a good thing. It is upon the kindness of the sharing party to provide decent attribution from the shared art. But it is not MANDATORY and DEMANDING IT IS FUCKED UP!

Artists are taking forms they did not create and using their talents to create derivatives with their skill. Their skills COST, and that should be what is important and remunerated and by our group, we respect it. But the final completion of the art of a derivative work that the artist does NOT own the intellectual property license nor has approval from Lucasfilm to create, is NOT — NOT what needs to be attributed by law.

You can go to court to demand copyright, but you don’t own the license. You created the work out of the kindness of your heart. That’s just the final artform work.

Here is Disney Lucasfilm’s  legal framework that our parent company, Ariafya LLC follows (source):

Our long-standing company policy does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials.  In connection with anything you submit to us – whether or not solicited by us – you agree that creative ideas, suggestions or other materials you submit are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and us in any way, and that you have no expectation of review, compensation or consideration of any type.

 

THE SKILL OF THE ARTIST IS NOT IN QUESTION HERE!

Should you want Disney Lucasfilm to consider your work as an artist or an author, you have to take the RISK to get your name out there. Do what it takes to get noticed by the fandom. PARTICIPATE IN THEIR ACTIVITIES! NETWORK! Don’t massively bad-mouth Disney Lucasfilm and their products.

Inside tracks and knowing someone on the inside is fine and a plus, but Disney is still a corporate entity that wants professionals in its repertoire. They want professionals to KNOW how to play the game and will not freeze up when it is crunch time. Disney is the big league.

If you are yelling and trolling fans for not attributing your work on social media sites, like Tumblr, then you are pathetic and not in the big leagues. No one stole your work, your game in PROMOTION of your work was sloppy and pathetic in this day and age of social media. So it would behoove you to learn this business, first.

If you are going to POST your work ANYWHERE online before the public eye, then you need a business plan of fandom social media engagement and reaction. Yelling at fans or trolling them is going to get you hated. Trolling is not Fandom.

I am not a visual artist. But I do have an official business license and I know how to work social media well enough to get my work where I need it and with commercial support. And yes, I will ask what’s in it for me because I do business, not placating sensitivities. This is not about someone’s emotional instabilities, this is adulting and there are things I have to do in order to complete my project goals that I have set for my needs in a timely manner.

You want to make friends on social media, join a dating app.

You want to take your art to the big leagues, that’s what I’m all about…

#HanSolo and #SanaStarros-Solo have child together.

Sana Starros believes she is married to Han Solo in a marriage they put together to meet a crime lord. Everyone knew it was a sham, but Sana did not.

tumblr_o9etliz9zx1vo5fg7o2_1280

For whatever reason Sana thought she was with Han, she stayed true to him and his adopted cause, the Rebellion, though she knew it could cost her life. She was committed to Han, but Han did not love her. He just wanted some punnanny and that is what he got until he was frozen in Carbonite.

Sana was also bisexual. How she regarded her lovers were fluid. Yet, she married Han as a mission.

Their crazy fit together and perhaps, the Carbonite freeze gave Han perspective. Then he told Leia he loved her on Endor. Finally the war with the Empire was “over” and settling debts throughout the years had to happen.

Sometime in 7 ABY, Han visited Sana and told her he was going to marry Leia. Sana cried and tried to change his mind. It was a one last time. But that one last time resulted in a child, a girl in our headcanon, that has her father’s eyes.

Within that same timeframe, he married Leia and they had a son, Ben.

Ben has a half-sister who is part Black. It may be some of the reason why Ben was angry with Han Solo. Enough to kill him? Unknown. But it seems that Kylo Ren (Ben) is very angry at Han because he kept bad company in his opinion. It is a judgement of Kylo Ren and he has no right, but children tend to hate their parents when the folly.

This girl is named “Fay Solo” and in an upcoming fan fiction, she interacts with Kylo Ren. Stay tuned.

Diary of a Sith Chick

“The Blackguard clings to the principle that acquiring knowledge is superior to exerting physical power.” —Book of Sith

Book of Sith has been my companion by the pool, this summer…uh, I mean as part of my training as a squire in the house of Ren…and this Blackguard principle resonates with the academic in me. The structure of the book thrills me because not only am I privy to the asynchronous dialogue of Vader, Sidious and Luke with and about followers of the Sith, but prose that doesn’t follow conventional structure arouses my intellect (I am not in love, yet, that will take more reflection), and it tempts me to be more than a voyeur, as their notes and my own annotations penetrate the Sith teachings, enhancing my reading experience. The knowledge is reshaping and enriching the Star Wars stories that I know, and I want more.  star wars library

Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG 77)

nano-2015-winner-banner

This year was hard for me to write 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo due to several personal issues that hit me hard this year.

Physically, I had to slow down. But for NaNoWriMo, I challenged myself to complete the story I wanted.

My story is a Star Wars fan fiction about Grand Admiral Thrawn (Mitth’raw’nuruodo) set in the Star Wars Rebels timeframe. It is a part of the #GetThrawnIn #StarWarsRebels campaign where we are petitioning Lucasfilm to add this Legends character back into the canon because he is awesome. You will understand my reasons when you read the story except.
