intrigueing: (yoda's epic shit)
A great, bubbly, and very enjoyable read about why Empire was the best Star Wars movie:


It also made me laugh because I'm pretty damn sure the fanfic-and-meta-and-fanart cohort of fans* (as opposed to the male uh, I mean, the what-is-Darth-Vader's-suit-made-of-and-is-it-fireproof-fans) noticed this and went to town on it ages ago. How come critics are always late to the blindingly obvious party?


*(Is there an official term to distinguish these fans from the dudes (yeah yeah and girls) whose fandom consists of only collecting Star Wars merchandise and playing Star Wars cards and that kind of stuff?)

To all fellow Star Wars fans -- admit it. Out of all the fandoms in all the franchises in all the world, we got it really, really, REALLY good. Seriously. How many other fandoms have the kind of luck and respect and responsiveness and widespread acceptance, on every possible level from the quality of fic to the lack of stigma from non-fans, that this one has? None of them, that's how many. No fandom is as lucky as this one.
