Links!

Some of my friends (who also happen to be former graduate students) have been doing some fantastic things online:

* from Curtis Weyant (on Star Wars and Star Trek): "The Force is not magic."

* from Emily Strand: "Kylo Snape? Is The Force Awakens the Eighth Harry Potter Story?"

* and also from Emily Strand via Mugglenet Academia: "The Second War was Won on the Quidditch Pitch of Hogwarts: Quidditch as a Symbol Set in the Harry Potter Narrative."



And here are a couple more links for your enjoyment:

* from The British Library: "Medieval Star Wars."

* from I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere: "Celebrating Christmas on Baker Street."

!!!!!!THERE ARE STAR WARS SPOILERS IN THIS COMMENT. SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS!!!!!!!
Ha! I enjoyed the "Kylo Snape" link because Kylo, with his hair and voice, reminded me very strongly of a young, emo Snape. In fact, after I saw the movie, I really wanted to post something about it, but didn't want to spoil it for anyone. So I posted "SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE." (Which people took as I meant them to, that I was posting really old "spoilers" to be funny.) I mean, angry person dressed all in black kills father figure, an older, wiser (?) veteran of the last war. OK, so [SPOILER] didn't ask to be killed, but that's a minor point.

And then I read someone's fan theory on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/FanTheories/comments/3xxh9f/spoilers_star_wars_kylo_rens_true_mission/ and that objection fell by the wayside. I don't know if that'll end up being true, because frankly I doubt that the people making these movies have that much subtlety, but it would make them so much better than if this round of eps was "The Redemption of Kylo Ren", which is what I suspect it will turn out to be.

(Sorry for all the edits! I'm really trying not to ruin it [too much] for anyone passing by.)
