On behalf of the Shadow Council, I’m pleased to introduce a new member of the blogging team who’s making her debut post today: needsmoresprinkles! (She also goes by needs_more_sprinkles or sprinkles.)
Sprinkles is a freelance theater artist and graphic designer from Seattle, Washington. She became a Star Wars fan in her teenage years, after getting so grossed out by the tauntaun guts scene in The Empire Strikes Back when she was eight that she refused to watch the series for almost a decade. She is most interested in the myth and folklore roots of the series, particularly how it relates to the work of Joseph Campbell. She chose her username because she was making rainbow sprinkle Chex Mix the same day she started her reddit account, and the rest is history.
Let’s give her a warm welcome!

I would like to say up front that I don’t think JJ’s statement in the commentary that Rey and Kylo haven’t met before TFA should be taken absolutely. So please don’t reply as though I’m not aware of what he said. Second, it does make some leaps that aren’t predicated on any information we currently have. It’s based on where I think the ST is going thematically. This incorporates ideas developed in the previous three sections.

In his quest for domination of the universe itself, the Emperor had many schemes and tools in play. The most visible and prominent was the Death Star. As his rule expanded, resistance inevitably arose which required his attention and delayed him from attaining true power. The Death Star was the answer to these distractions and its completion was to pacify the restive galactic populace so that he might direct his efforts towards more productive ends. It’s destruction was a devastating setback, but it was only one plan among many.
This is part of my full background theory:

- Secrets of the Emperor and Snoke (Today)
- Descendants of the Chosen One and Rey
