Reasonable Force
Our Director of Communications is giving a talk entitled "Persuasion on the dark side".

I am not sure whether the first thing that sprang to mind should have been the enormous untapped potential of Jane Austen / Star Wars crossover fanfic, but now that the idea has lodged in my mind, it has shown no intention of going away.

Still, at least this offers some distraction from administrative politics.

Now you mention it, Star Wars suddenly sounds like the perfect Jane Austen plot, if you tell it from Leia's perspective. Torn away from her parents by a cruel twist of fate, she is drawn to a strange man but then discovers he is her long-lost twin brother, so instead marries off to his quiet, reclusive friend and then finds her real father who turns out to be one of the most powerful people in the universe, all ends happily. Could work in Regency costume, if you ignore all the "lasers"... :-)

You people are gloriously sick, and make me feel a bit less so for wondering what becomes of Aziraphale and Crowley in Airstrip One.

Catherine de Burgh and a Wookie?

Jabba the Hutt and Mrs. Bennett?

Mr. Bennett and Yoda?

A truth universally acknowledged it is, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a lightsaber.

Owen Lars, of Tatooine, was a man who for his own amusement never took up any book but the Peerage of Naboo.

Thank you, whoever you are! That's exactly the sort of thing I was thinking of, but didn't have enough Star Wars knowledge to do it. :-)

"But, Captain Solo," cried Leia, "how vexed you must have been when you came to the Millennium Falcon, to see what an old thing they had given you."

(I'm a bit disappointed to discover that the Asp is only a sort of spaceship in the Star Wars-inspired computer game Elite, and not in the films.)

Re: It's not dark yet, but it's getting there

Homage to Old Possum, clearly!

On the basis that most ridiculous ideas are already out there on t'interweb somewhere I googled for 'Star Wars Jane Austen' (yes I was bored). It found this:
...which is somewhat disturbing in its own right.
