What makes someone a somebody?

How would you tell the difference?
Could a somebody sit in a cantina without being recognized? (Luke in LoLS #1)
How about searching for salvage on Jakku? (Luke in LoLS #2)
Or perhaps fly a junker A-Wing and not even have their name recognized? (LoLS #6)
Perhaps the real lesson is the distinction between nobody and somebody is meaningless and we’re all Luke Skywalker.

A Shadow Council tour de Force

The vast majority of the fandom feels The Last Jedi has unequivocally shut the door on Rey being the daughter of a legacy character, particularly Luke Skywalker. In this series, we’ll make the case that the movie does not close the door, but in fact makes the Rey Skywalker theory just as viable, and immeasurably more meaningful, satisfying and powerful.

A Belated Happy New Year

With the hubbub of the holidays over, we can get back to writing about Star Wars. We have quite a bit planned surrounding The Last Jedi, but will be getting to other topics as well. Currently, we’re putting together a tour de Force of how the movie actually heavily suggests Rey is Luke’s daughter and what is going on with Luke. In the meantime, here’s something to chew on:
