In retrospect, I’m pretty sure the reason every American kid my age knows the song “Kids in America” is because of the jimmy neutron movie

beckyh2112 asked: For the AU meme, if you’re still taking requests: Han Solo, accidental Jedi knight





oops accidental bonus headcanons because JEDI KNIGHT HAN SOLO, oooooops oh well too late now! 

  • “It’s LUCK, kid,” Han scoffs dismissively, then proceeds to grab up the lightsaber himself and turn on the training droid, then close his eyes and nail every single bolt before knocking the thing right out of the air. “Also, see that, you don’t even NEED the Force to do that.” “… perhaps, but that was the Force you just did that with,” Obi-Wan replies slowly. “What,” Han says. 
  • It was definitely the Force. “I AM NOT A JEDI,” Han Solo yells as he is dragged kicking and screaming into Jedi training by the power of Luke’s excitement at not being the only one suffering the indignity of getting hit in the ass by randomized droid blaster-shots, literally just that. Also Obi-Wan tells him he might be able to shave half a parsec off the Kessel Run, if he hones his Force-sense finely enough, which, well, FINE then. BUT ONLY FOR THE KESSEL RUN. 
  • “I have a bad feeling about this.” 
  • Leia is so appalled by the state of the Jedi in this galaxy. “Sorry, sweetheart, we can’t all be bright-eyed little beacons of galactic hope,” Han says, smashing a Stormtrooper over the head with his lightsaber hilt. The blade is blue but NO ONE WOULD FUCKING KNOW, CONSIDERING HOW RARELY HE USES THE DAMN THING. Generally speaking Jedi Knight Han Solo uses his lightsaber as A) a laser cutter and B) a blunt instrument. Obi-Wan is dead and he is STILL going to die of shame on behalf of the Order. 
  • The amount of gimer-stick whaps that Han Solo suffers has not been seen in the galaxy since Yan Dooku was a snotty little baby padawan who couldn’t be assed to pay attention to anything not saberplay for more than fifteen seconds at a time. 
  • Lando takes one look at Han Solo holding a lightsaber and laughs for TEN THOUSAND YEARS. Chewbacca is like THANK YOU, AT LAST SOMEONE ELSE SEES THE FUCKING HILARITY OF THIS SITUATION, THANK YOU, CALRISSIAN. 
  • “Dark Side my fine Corellian ASS, I’ll show you the fucking DARK SIDE, YOU PIECE OF BANTHA SHIT, LET ME AT HIM–” 

(*Laughing helplessly*). Honestly, I think that even Vader would be speechless when confronted with Han Solo, Jedi Knight. The Dark Lord of the Sith hasn’t seen a Force-User this foul-mouthed, this rebellious, this angry, this full of sarcasm and biting wit since – since –

Vader abruptly realizes that he hasn’t seen a Jedi Knight like this since Anakin Skywalker. Except Han is taking all those traits and cranking them up to eleven. He is quietly convinced that, somewhere, Obi-Wan is laughing in the Force.

Just imagine Han Solo with telekinesis, though. Imagine it. Imagine all the things he could get up to with it, imagine how Han, already an absolute menace at sabbac, becomes downright unbeatable (”It’s training!” Han yells as he’s dragged away from the gambling table. “Heightening awareness and control, and let go of my kid, did you see that hand – “)

  1. Disney didn’t kill the EU.
  2. The EU hasn’t died unless you and everyone else let it die.
  3. Lucasfilm made the decision to create new stories.

Get to know these facts.

I spent a good minute staring at this trying to work out how Disney could possibly kill the European Union.

Hot damn, I just thought of something really cool. So, like, I headcanon that Harry kept Parseltongue after he lost the horcrux, because it’s just really fun to imagine stuff like Harry talking to Albus Severus’ pet snake or finding a little snake in the garden and hissing a hello. Parseltongue is really neat and snakes are awesome, so it’s so feel-good to imagine that instead of being used for Dark Arts, Harry’s just using it to make convo to little scaly cuties.

Like, Parseltongue apparently transfers with the soul or whatever? So you could totally claim that Harry’s soul/magic kept/learned the skill. A skill passed down through the soul/magic could totally transfer that way.

But… do you know who also had a piece of Voldemort’s soul inside them and was speaking Parseltongue pretty regularly for a long period of time? Ginny. Ginny Weasley.

So imagine twelve-year-old Ginny Weasley going home to heal after the whole Chamber of Secrets business, and finding a snake in the garden, muttering about sunny rocks and sleep. And it scares her so badly at first, because what if Tom isn’t really gone? What if Tom’s still lurking in some dark place in her head? She freaks out and nearly doesn’t come home for dinner that day… except… then she remembers that Harry can speak Parseltongue too. 

Harry had an horrible encounter with Voldemort where Voldemort tried to take his life and somehow a piece of his power transferred to Harry, so now Harry can speak Parseltongue. Maybe she just got a piece of power too when Tom tried to steal her life?

It’d be really cool to have an AU where Ginny kept Parseltongue and decided that no, I’m not going to let Tom run my life and was treated Parseltongue like the cool trick it is. And Harry is the only one who full gets it and doesn’t get a little bit uncomfortable when she drops into hissing, and maybe Harry shyly gets encouraged to start hissing back. Voldemort tried to ruin our lives so let’s stick it to him and his Slytherin ancestors, right? Yeah!

Anyway, twelve year old Ginny and thirteen year old Harry having hissing conversations at the Gryffindor table, using it to talk smack and have inside jokes, and using it to scare the heck of out any pureblood supremacists. (Who are all absolutely scandalized because Parseltongue is something Salazar Slytherin is famous for and here it’s being using for casual conversation and Quidditch commentary by a Potter and a Weasley.)

Just picture these two adorable children hissing jokes at each other in the hallways and helping each other recover from their fear and trauma.

Ginny (in Parseltongue), “<Hey Harry, let’s both stare at Malfoy breaking into laughter and hissing at each other in Parseltongue.>”

Harry, “<…That would totally freak him out. …I’m in.>”

Ginny, “<Okay, he’s noticed we’re staring now.>”

Draco, “Do you have something to say Potter?!”

Ginny, “<Laugh now.>”

Harry and Ginny burst out into enormous laughter and Draco Malfoy is furious and gets increasingly mad as Harry and Ginny crack up and hiss things like, “<Great weather we’re having today!>” and “<How about them Harpies?>”
And Draco can’t call a Professor on them because he can’t prove they’re saying anything bad (and it’s just icing on the top that they actually aren’t and he’s getting worked up over nothing).

This continues well into their relationship and into adulthood. All of the Potter-Weasley children can speak Parseltongue and have a foolproof way of having secret conversation in public. Sometimes they have to smack Jamie Sirius on the head to use English in public and tell Lily Luna to stop trying to scare people and convince them you’re the next Dark Lady. Harry and Ginny hiss at each other all throughout Ministry Events and Quidditch Events (Rita Skeeter cannot eavesdrop on them and she is furious) and to their children, lovingly telling them in this “language of the Dark Arts” to “<Behave yourselves>“ and ”<Remember to wear your jumper when it’s cold out.>“

Somewhere out there Tom Riddle and scores of Gaunts are rolling in their graves. Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley do not care.

It’s not… very clear? The basic explanation of geth in the codex is that they’re pretty much like Erythro – one geth alone is only slightly smarter than a brick, but ten geth networked together are like a small brain, and a thousand or a million geth are more smarterer. (Possibly exponentially, but I get picky about the definition of “exponentially”. ^_^)

But then you have the fact that when geth talk about themselves they use “this unit” for “I”, suggesting some sort of concept of individuality. You’ve got the story of the long-ago geth who asked its quarian overseer, “Does this unit have a soul?”, freaking out the overseer and the rest of the quarians with the realization that they’d crossed the line to self-aware AI life from really advanced VIs (example of the latter: Avina with her “I am not programmed to respond in that area, my code is limited to information and simple interaction simulations”).

And then you have Legion in ME2, who’s stated to be a thousand-odd geth “runtimes” walking around in a single high-powered body, but who still refers to itself as “this unit” and reports on the consensus decisions of its… internal geth? idek… as if it’s one person delegated to speak, like a jury foreman or something. (I mean, maybe it is, I wouldn’t be surprised if Legion-as-a-multiple-system decided to have only one personality front while talking to organics for convenience. But there’s never any hint in-game that there are other personalities associated with the other runtimes.)

And then in ME3 the Reapers give the geth code upgrades to try and help them wipe out the quarians or something, and Legion gives you a little holo-PowerPoint on how a single geth with these upgrades is smarter than ten networked geth were before; Legion specifically says at that point “I find this growth beautiful, indicative of life”. Then if you broker peace on Rannoch, Legion will try to re-upload the upgrades to the rest of the geth (they were formerly being continually broadcast from the Reaper on Rannoch, uploading and downloading in ME3 are just intensely weird okay), then it’ll say “Copying code insufficient, direct personality dissemination required”, and it’ll disseminate its runtimes to the rest of the geth collective, dying in the process in order to bring the geth “true sentience”.

I am so not up on classic skiffy shit. ;P Hell, I hadn’t even heard of “hive mind” referring exclusively to Borg-type things before – I had it in my head that it also refers to networked “brains” like Erythro. And I’m also not very well up on multiple systems or… lots of stuff. I’d be really interested in any input you might have about the geth, how you’d interpret them from what I’ve said here (bearing in mind that everything, especially ME3, can be changed if the new idea works better).

Well, I don’t know if my definition of “hive mind” is the definition, but it seems to me that any definition of “hive mind” broad enough that a single, ordinary human would qualify is too broad to be useful.

Now that I think about it, I guess you could define a “hive mind” as being composed of pieces capable of independent life rather than intelligence, which would cover Erythro (whose microbes could continue to go about their microbial lives if their connections were severed) but not a human*. Maybe that’s what the Troper was thinking.

It’s interesting that you mention multiple systems, though, because I think maybe that’s why I place more emphasis on consciousness than life in my sense of what “hive mind” means. At a relatively early age (thirteen, which is before I heard of and later read Nemesis), I encountered stuff about multiplicity, and notably grey-area stuff like blurring and median systems. When you’ve talked with both a hive entity (when they’re blurry) and the entity’s individual components (when they’re not blurry)–components that are full people in themselves but only have one body between them, capable of thinking independently but not living independently–I suppose you end up with a definition like mine.

So…hmm. I take it from the fact that Legion’s dissemination was able to carry the upgrades that Legion had the upgrades, and that would indicate that–regardless of whether or not they were before–Legion’s individual runtimes were sapient? I’m not sure if scattering would really count as dying, in that case…if they’re capable of individual consciousness but also of a single networked one, whether it’s dying probably depends on how they view themselves, really. If they think of themselves as primarily a hive entity with the option to operate as independent runtimes, or as primarily independent runtimes with the option to operate as a hive entity. Neither conception would be wrong; it’s up to them to decide which framework they use.

*Well, maybe not a human. Not the brain part, anyway. It remains to be seen how big a role a human’s microbes play.
