Star Wars Geek Girl #106: Hangin with Hera – Vanessa Marshall Stops By

Helllllllo, listeners! I’m back again this week to share another episode of, not The Elven Padawan podcast, but the Star Wars Geek Girl podcast! I had fully intended to produce a new installation of my own show for May the 4th/Revenge of the 5th, but after doing this episode with Zoe and Lizzy, I felt far too hyper to fit still long enough to do any more recording. And you’ll see the reason for my bounciness in the very title of the episode…

Star Wars Geek Girl #101 – AKA Shay guests on another podcast!

So most of you have probably noticed already that there was no new episode of The Elven Padawan podcast this past Saturday. And I am here to tell you that there is a legitimate reason for that this time, and it’s not just another case of “Shay-got-bogged-down-with-schoolwork-and-also-forgot-and-also-didn’t-feel-like-setting-up-the-microphone-when-Saturday-finally-came.”

The reason? I did record a podcast, just not with The Elven Padawan!

In which Shay begins the podcast by delivering a rant about how she sees the current state of things in fandoms, and how it bothers her, and finishes by offering some thoughts about the latest episodes of Star Wars Rebels.

A Farewell to Star Wars Rebels: part 1

In just a few days, the amazing show Star Wars Rebels will come to its conclusion.

We’ve had four seasons of the Ghost crew and their fight against the Empire, each member learning as they overcame challenges of all kinds together. I started watching this show only a year ago, and even though I know the Finale is going to be fantastic and well-thought out, I am extremely sad that it’s ending. It will be missed greatly. In honor of Rebels, the team of The Elven Padawan – Shay, Kitten, and I, Audrey – talk about our favorite characters, episodes, and why we love Rebels so much.

The Elven Padawan – #13 – Featuring special guest, Aceofstars16!

Finally, another episode of The Elven Padawan podcast!
In this episode, Shay interviews Star Wars fanfiction writer, Aceofstars16! Ace is also a HUGE Star Wars Rebels fan, so you probably already know where this is heading.
Besides the interview (and obsessing over Rebels), the girls also discuss their Star Wars OTPs, social media, The Last Jedi, Mortis connections with the rest of the saga, and what the canon lifespan of a Twi’lek is.

The Elven Padawan – #12 – The Last Jedi initial thoughts

It’s finally time for Shay’s thoughts on STAR WARS VIII: THE LAST JEDI!!!
Actually, it’s more like unorganized ranting about different main aspects of the film here… Shay explores her thoughts on The Force Awakens and how they compare to The Last Jedi, and what she thought of the film overall. Then she goes into some thoughts on the character highpoints: Rey’s development, Rey and Kylo’s relationship, Luke’s change and whether it destroys his character or not, and more.
(There will probably be another part to thisin the form of a legitimate review next time, cuz this girl has waaay too many thoughts to fit into one 1-hour episode!!)

The Elven Padawan – #11- Super Special “The Last Jedi” Community Episode!!

In celebration of the premier of Star Wars VIII: THE LAST JEDI, there’s something really special going on with The Elven Padawan: a whole episode of your pre-TLJ thoughts!
Shay asked for your thoughts on a few key things concerning THE LAST JEDI, including porgs, R2-D2 vs. BB-8, lightsaber colors, and more, and now she’s back with all your answers, compiled into a “questions-on-the-street” news channel style. But don’t worry, there are no spoilers here; all questions are speculations and personal opinions only, and all answers were sent back and compiled before TLJ premiered, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, there’s nothing to worry about.

A Note of Thanks

Hey everyone!!

Or, maybe the more appropriate greeting would be…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

This Thanksgiving, I wanted to just take a moment and say a huge THANK YOU to all of you guys who have contributed to The Elven Padawan in any way.

I wanted to re-post this series of tweets here on the blog for those of you who might not have Twitter, and haven’t seen them already.

To my readers here on the TEP blog, and those of you who tune into the podcast: Thank you all so much for supporting The Elven Padawan, and helping me get it started. I know it’s nothing like a lot of the big networks and fan sites out there, and what I write isn’t even all that great; I’m just a teenaged fangirl who got tired of annoying my family members who didn’t know the difference between an ewok and a hobbit with all my ridiculous rants and theories and ended up creating this whole mess. But I’m so thankful for those of you who do read and listen, who diligently “like” and comment on each post I publish, and check up here to find out the latest Star Wars related news. I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year, and can’t wait to show you some of the new things I have in mind for around here. Much love and thanks again! – Shay 🙂

To my Father, the King: Thank you for everything you’ve given me, and specifically for these amazing stories you’ve given us the inspiration and imagination for. Thank you for all the amazing people who I’ve met because of them, and the fascinating conversations we’ve had, and all the valuable moments I have experienced as a direct result of this endeavor. I pray that I will be able to continue this path for a long time to come. Love from your crazy daughter – Shay
