HOLY CRAP IT'S BEEN A WHILE. How're you doing, Livejournal? I still go here pretty much every day, I just don't post much because...well, because so many people have gone. Man.

That being said, I thought I might post about my new project here! I'm writing an article about Star Wars Prequel fandom and how it appealed to teenage girls. It's based on this post I did on tumblr, a while back. Here's what I said over on That Other Website:

Star Wars is in the media even more now and I want in! So I’m going to be rewriting that (badly written) original post for Newshub - a whole article about teenage girls and their participation in Star Wars Prequel fandom. Y’know, something to counteract the constant “Male Comedian Absent From TV As Of Late Denounces Star Wars Prequels” articles that’re everywhere.

But I need participation! Like there was on the original post. I want your stories, teenage and ex-teenage girls of the Tumblr Star Wars fandom. Tell me how you bought the sticker albums and t-shirts, tell me about your first cosplay, tell me what it was like navigating back in those days. (Actually, I know that one. But tell me anyway.) Tell me if you ever found any merchandise aimed at you. Definitely tell me about the fanfiction community at the time, I was there, but I still missed a lot. If you didn’t like the prequels but still have a good story about being female in the Star Wars fandom, tell me that story too!

(Oh, and also tell me what name and URL you want to be used/linked to - I figure most people will want their Tumblr URLS, but let me know.)

As you may have guessed I can offer zero money to anyone, but I can offer a fun platform for people to talk about Star Wars. So there’s that. I can’t promise I’ll use all stories/quotes either, but I’ll try!

I know there are a couple of Star Wars fans still on LJ! So if you're one of them, maybe leave a comment here and tell me your story, or a snippet of it? It would be VERY much appreciated! :)
