I should probably try to make a Life Update Post before 2017 starts. It's been one hell of a year, if you know what I'm saying. But let's start with the easy stuff.

Somehow I hadn't really expected everyone to die. Mostly because Hollywood. And I guess in the end it is still a happy enough ending, with the whole "then the plans wind up making it to the base and Luke blows up the death star and there is new hope for the jedi legacy and medals are won" context. But they had me going for a bit, because the robot was the first to die and there's been this trend lately where they kill the non-human character but it's OK because they aren't human and therefore can come back in some capacity (see: Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6....) and "killing Alan Tudyk's character" has not previously resulted in the death of the whole cast.

Anyway, I think they did the "tragic ending" thing pretty well, and I'm glad that we could have this one break from the "heroes always win" thing. It's pretty satisfying but you need an occasional break from it, you know?

That said, if anyone has any fix-it fics they would like to share.... please
