Currently Listening To: "We Belong Together" by Mariah Carey (not by choice... damn MTV...
Have you joined what I have dubbed the Aaylalution yet?
Aayla Secura. If you think she got shafted in Ep. III gimme a hell yeah. Yep, it's soapbox time. She's got more backstory than any of the other minor Jedi characters, more charisma than any of the major characters put together, and what happens to her? Yeah, exactly.
I can't remember being this fired up about a character since... well, since Blink.
Yeah, that Blink. A.K.A. Clarice Ferguson, the cute lavender-hued teleporting mutant who was VERY minor during the ol' Phalanx Covenant series, then she made her return in the Age of Apocalypse series and fans immediately just took to her, wanting to see more of her in a bad way. And the love for her grew up until Marvel Comics relented, giving her a mini-series, and then giving her a leading role in the comic Exiles. Now Blink is back and I'm happy. At least for the most part.
But on the subject of Aayla... well, hopefully this rumor that she'll return in the Star Wars TV series isn't just a rumor and is reality. Aayla's way too good a character to just shoot in the back and such. She deserves better than that.
So have you joined the Aaylalution yet?
