Ko-tu-ya, fellow Star Wars fan! My name’s Twilight545, or just Twilight. Welcome to Padawanline, my open love letter to the franchise and record of at least thirteen percent of my deepest Star Wars-y thoughts.
In 2013, my Star Wars fandom reached a peak so high it could no longer be confined to just me and anyone I could get to listen, a blog had to happen. A blog that not only put my raging fangirliness into words, but helped me take the time to really analyze these stories and discover what makes them so great. That’s why I call myself a “fanalyst” (a fan and analyst at the same time).
Why “Padawanline”? Well, aside from the fact I apparently like mixing words together, it’s because I’m aware there’s so much to learn in the Star Wars galaxy. When I started this blog, I felt a bit uncertain about stepping out into a fandom where everyone seems to know everything. I felt like openly admitting I didn’t know everything, and writing for people on a similar level of understanding, would make me look less dumb in the eyes of other Jedi Master-level fans. But over the years, I’ve learned that it doesn’t matter how much I know or don’t know. I love Star Wars, and I’d be writing about it whether anyone was reading or not. I just hope I can offer an interesting perspective or observation to enrich your own Star Wars experience, and maybe make you smile a little.
Yeah, I’m still a Padawan, even at times when I think I’m a Master. There are still many stories I haven’t explored, so it’s only natural I don’t always connect all the dots. But with the galaxy expanding more and more every day… much to learn, we all still have. I don’t mind, though. I’m ready to take the leap — just like a young Ahsoka Tano on the edge of oblivion.
PHOTO CREDIT INFO 3/24/19
I recently became aware I’ve made some mistakes on my blog and tumblr. In the past, I have often neglected to credit the sources I’ve pulled images from (especially with product images on eBay). I’ve done my best to remedy this, but if you ever notice an image of yours you don’t want me sharing, please let me know in the comment box below, or send a message on tumblr. Apologies to anyone I may have hurt or inconvenienced.
Also, I have removed some images on some of my posts that were sourced from illegal videos. There was a time that, though I wasn’t intentionally trying to hurt anyone, I didn’t consider it might not be fair use. These images will be replaced at a later date from a legal source. Again, apologies to all effected.
All images that don’t belong to me should have a copyright listed underneath or on the image. If you see an image without credit and/or has a “Twilight545” watermark, it’s one of my own screencaps from my own DVDs/BDs, digital copies, or TV recording, or it may be a personal drawing of my own.

With that boring stuff out of the way, now for something fun!
