    One of my favorite things about Fisher's appearances for the past few years was that she always had her dog with her, its tongue perpetually lolling like six feet out of its head

    It was clearly her animal familiar in which she had invested much power, and it was the best animal familiar in history

    See, I don't think I knew how much I loved Leia when I watched them as a kid

    It wasn't until The Force Awakens, when she showed up, that I realized how much I'd missed her

    And now I miss her again and it sucks

    Are there any astronauts or physicists who might be able to shed some light on whether this is bullshit or not? Because it sounds like bullshit but honestly my meter has been off for lately.
    @Javen Well, there are ways that the human lymphatic system changes during extended exposure to zero-gravity (astronauts have a tendency to get blocked noses/sinus congestion), but I'm fairly certain it's nothing to the level that would excuse Lucas's bull-plop.

    Maybe 2016 is Empire Strikes Back, the dark middle part, and 2017 will be Return of the Jedi, where the assholes get it.

    Star Wars hasn't really ever featured zero gravity

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    Ok but what about that part where star war got blown up and went flying off into space forever?

    princess leia didn't mean that much to me when I was a kid

    I figured she was fine, and I never really developed a fetish for her the way a lot of Xers did

    but thinking back, considering how much I loved Star Wars and how often I watched it, it is pretty likely that she was one of the main reasons I've thought oldschool misogynist sexism is fucking laughable for as long as I've been able to think about it

    2016 has become an actual malevolent entity bent on causing chaos and anguish and uprooting all that is good and green.

    Fuck.

    May the Force be with you, General.

    I saw Carrie Fisher live once and she was hilarious

    Also she said the reason her and Harrison Ford seem so happy in the scene in Empire Strikes Back where they meet Lando for the first time is that they had been partying all night with the Rolling Stones at Eric Idle's house and were still drunk

    Carrie Fisher also did a Christmas episode of Qi two years ago and I highly recommend it. She was priceless throughout, and she and Stephen Fry struck up a friendship after it. I believe he ended up being taken by her to the Force Awakens premier in London.

    I didn't know that. I did see this tweet earlier today and thought it was adorable:

    I think they actually met and became friends a few years earlier than that when Fry made a documentary on depression (Which he also suffers from) which she featured in.

    Those gifts are, like, at the perfect intersection of bizarre and shit that Stephen Fry would find hilarious.

    The Mary Sue talks about her career as a script doctor.

    (Supposedly, she was called in to salvage the prequels, but alas, she was a script doctor, not a script miracle worker.)

    I felt Carrie was always fighting for something better for everyone.

    Just yesterday I was catching up on the Star Wars thread and reading people's reactions to her heart attack. It brought me to tears in a way that the news itself didn't. Beyond the concern and despair, it had an unmistakable element of hope - the image of her strangling Jabba in particular comes to mind. And the hope had, for me, a weight that went beyond just her medical condition. It was a hope that someone could fight back against an unknowable and unstoppable force. When I heard that she succumbed today at work, I had to leave my coworkers to not embarrass myself. My brain had made the connection between her struggle and my own (2016 has been a pretty shit year for me outside of celebrities and fascism). In that moment, I had lost hope in perseverance and in struggle.

    But only for a moment. Her inspiration outlives her.

    Another comment I saw said that her last word spoken on screen at this point is "hope." IDK if true but it feels nice if it is.

    She is one with the Force and the Force is with her.

    God damn, I was hoping she was going to be ok. Everything sounds like it was going well yesterday (at least from what little I could find about it)...

    That sucks but he was 96. He got 36 more years than Carrie Fisher. I've not even been alive for 36 years

    Did she actually say that line? I didn't see if she got credit for it or not.
