Within the chair’s shadow sat another shadow: deeper, darker, formless and impenetrable, an abyssal umbra so profound that it drained light from the room around it.
And from the city. And the planet.
And the galaxy.

Why James Luceno probably named Palpatine’s father Cosinga: while translating a Spanish text last week, looking for a word with the first syllable “con” that has now escaped my mind, my eyes kept going back to the word “consigna”. I soon realized that it reminded me of Palpatine’s father’s name Cosinga. “Consigna” can mean luggage deposit, watchword, but, and that’s what caught my interest, it also means dictate/instruction. I presume it’s similar in Latin, though the online dictionaries I checked didn’t have that meaning listed. Maybe you were already aware of this, but I “discovered” it last week and it made me smile how much Luceno cares for details such as this.
"tea-nymph said: I’m saddened and thrilled about this. You’re quite beautiful with any look. :)"
Thank you! That’s pretty much how I feel about it myself, but the time for this set had definitively come. I’m really enjoying the short hair right now, but I’m thinking about another set of dreads in the future.
Dear tumblr followers,
sorry that I’ve been so horribly inactive here. I’ve been lurking the whole time, but didn’t really have the muse to post something myself.
Here’s a hair update: I cut off my remaining dreads in December. My hair has already grown a bit ever since, I may post a more recent photo soon.
10 Minute Sketches - in which Lord Sidious shows off his amazing skill of acting out expressions. In the movies one of my favourite things about Palpatine’s face is how he smiles with his lips almost forming a V, it’s very similar to this:
Next up are the requested characters: Darth Tyranus, Darth Sion and Asajj Ventress. Still taking suggestions: Which Sith and what kind of expressions?
