Meet the New FOF Author

Hey there! It’s my first post here as a co-author at Fangirls on Felucia. {don’t tell the Fangirls because they didn’t know I was writing this.} I agreed to join the Fangirls as an author of the blog a couple of months ago, but things came up that were keeping me from writing. Thus, here is my fashionably late mini-bio.

I’m JediKnightGirl, of A Dreamer's Galaxy, but you can call me Tara or JKG if you’d like. The author name Tara comes from the character I created when I was 8 or 9, and she, Tara Jaywar, has become a rebel pilot, Jedi Knight, wife, and mother in the stories me and my friends write. I love movies, and I’m a born and bred fangirl of many fandoms. I love Star Wars, the Avengers and their individual movies, Tron: Legacy, and a bit of Indiana Jones.

Star Wars was my first adventure of the geek/ fan galaxy. My mom grew up with the Original Trilogy, but it didn’t take when she tried to get me into it when I was 5 or 6. But, thanks to me seeing Revenge of the Sith in theaters, I became a fan and fell in love with Star Wars. I love the Rebel Alliance and the Jedi Order, X-Wings and Snowspeeders, Rebel Pilots and Jedi, Ewoks and Wookies, Blasters and Lightsabers, Rebel Soldiers and Scoundrels. etc.

I proudly have a crush on both a Jedi and rebel; Obi-Wan Kenobi and Wedge Antilles. My other favorite Star Wars characters are Ahsoka Tano, Captain Rex, {and Rexsoka is a ‘guilty non-canon pleasure’ of mine.} Luke Skywalker, Bo Katan, Mara Jade, Riyo Chuchi, Wicket the Ewok, Princess Leia etc. Warning; I love to hate Mace Windu {not Nick Fury}, Lux Bonteri {DIE!}, Darth Maul {maybe a little less after seeing Ray Parks at SWW} and Commander Cody. {he tried to kill Obi-Wan…maybe.} 

I like Indiana Jones too, though I like quite a few more movies before Indy. But, there's a special place for Dr. Jones in every fangirl's heart. I like the Last Crusade best, but maybe that's because of Sean Connery as Indy's daddy. I love the father and son relationship in the movie. "Don't call me Junior!"

The Avengers is a passion of mine. I owe everything to my mom. She took me to the theater last summer to see Captain America: The First Avenger. I hated the whole concept of the Avengers because at the time I was obsessed with Batman and The Dark Knight. Man, I was naïve. I had seen and liked Iron Man a couple years before at the drive-in, and saw and hated Iron Man 2. But I loved Captain America, and Thor started a whole new chapter for the Avengers for me.

Thor is my favorite movie, and he and Hawkeye aka Clint Barton are my favorite heroes. And though I love the Avengers as a whole, there’s one little thing you’ve got to know about me...I love Loki. *unsheathes lightsaber and blaster for attacks* Ok, there’s a whole post I shall write on my love for Loki, but I won’t shoot and/or dismember anyone either way; at ease.

 And finally, Tron: Legacy. I love Tron, solely Legacy. {and yes, I tried and watched the original movie, and hated it.} I pleaded on my knees last summer for my parents to rent TL for me, but my grandma finally did. I loved every minute of it; the action, the characters, the plot, the soundtrack, the whole Tron world. It’s one of my favorite movies. That summer I was in love with the movie and I have great memories of fangirling over it with my awesome close friend, Lareen. And I love Clu, he's my favorite character...and again, I can write a post on that.

I am looking forward to being an author here with my friends, the Fangirls. Thank you for reading!
