    also does this mean luke and han were freeballing

    I think that's safe to assume about Han, at least

    I figured when they let her dog in to see her. Not because they don't let healthy people see their pets just from prior anecdotal experience.

    Still. Shit.

    'Lando system' is actually a really good change and the fact that she's responsible for that is both amazing and somehow very unsurprising.

    She was one of the best script doctors in the business.

    Well, I always wanted to show Star Wars to my son, and I knew I bought these special edition DVDs with the original theatrical print for a reason.

    Today seems like a good day for that.

    Goddamnit, 2016. Seriously.

    I mean, I was almost expecting it when I read that she was hospitalized, but still. What the fuck :(

    I honestly thought with Carrie at 2016 we were in the clear.

    Fucking hell, this year.

    I was never really fascinated by Star Wars. She played a cool character, whatever.

    To me Carrie Fisher has literally kept me going through the worst moments of some of my worst decisions.

    She gave me the closest thing I'll ever hear to magic words that make everything better, on some documentary I don't remember the subject of or what channel it was on that happened to be playing in the background at a friend's house when I was in my early 20s. I was sitting there cross stitching while other people were talking, and I started to pay attention to the show because she was a name I knew. I didn't even realize at the time how powerful it would be, but she changed my life again and again.

    It turns out I have the exact same form of the exact same disorder she had. I hadn't been diagnosed yet at the time and wouldn't be for years, but her words stuck with me and helped me to recognize my decisions and behaviors as a normal part of the process of acceptance. It's given me the strength on multiple occasions to pick up the phone and say "I thought I could do it but I can't, I need help."

    To me she isn't Leia. She's the person who, after however many hours of crying that week, said to me "It's time to get your life back on track and you can do it. This is normal, it happens, you'll try your best not to hold onto this moment but if you can't that's okay too, you can always come back around."

    When everything in my brain was falling apart, in that moment she gave me the courage to begin the process of pulling it back together, over and over again.

    I can only hope I ever have the effect on someone's life that she had on mine. She's an inspiration to me.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    She was a script doctor - someone who the studio calls in to salvage a bad script with potential. And she was one of the best in the business.

    Friendly reminder that Carrie Fisher was too stacked for Star Wars.

    So not only did Lucas force her to wear no bra, but then forced her to tape em down.

    Like seriously George?

    it's also typically work that doesn't get you into the film's credits so it is one of the most overlooked jobs in hollywood

    She used duct tape in New Hope because she needed something to hold 'em in place and they didn't give her a bra for reasons. They had some reason, something to do with space age nonsense, but it was there.

    So she made do with Duct-tape to keep her jubblies in order.

    Right, Lucas said "There was no underwear in space" so Carrie used gaffer tape to hold them together and keep her nipples from poking through her costume.

    Lucas literally thought that space bras would kill women.

    If you have HBO Now/Go, you can find her one-woman show "Wishful Drinking" which is based on the book of the same name, and its really great. Watching it now.

    Carrie is also the reason why we have the Slave Leia costume at all, because she complained about how the in the first two movies you could hardly tell she was a woman with how long and baggy her costumes were and there was nothing to show off her curves.

    So they compensated for that in Return of the Jedi.

    like, specifically space bras? or what if earth bras used in space?

    Maybe on earth your bra is okay but then you take off in the space shuttle and like the pressure change or something cuts off your circulation around your heart and you die

    That's really, really dumb. Pretty sure actual women were wearing space bras in actual space before the star wars started.

    With Darth Vader around that bra becomes a liability.
