THE WAY THAT I LOVE LESBIANS
THE WAY THAT I LOVE LESBIANS
Okay so we obviously know all about the Naboo handmaidens but I want to make some head cannons about the handmaidens on Alderaan because even though Alderaan and Naboo are quite similar there are still quite a few differences.
Like according to wookiepedia in Legends at least their were Alderaanian handmaidens as apparently someone called Jaesa Willsaam was handmaiden to Gesselle Organa before she joined the Jedi Order. Also originally Leia was going to have two handmaidens in an early draft of Star Wars and I’ve heard some people theorise that the Organa’s were raising Winter Celchu to one day be Leia’s handmaiden. I don’t know if they exist in the current cannon because there’s no mention of them in the Leia, princess of Alderaan book and Leia has 2V to help her with clothing, hair and makeup but there’s nothing to suggest in my opinion that Breha dosen’t have handmaidens as in the short story Eclipse it mentions she has an attendant named Falena who practised the lute in the Queen’s apartment so it might be that only the Queen of Alderaan has handmaidens (weather she’s the monarch or the consort).
So I don’t think the Alderaanian handmaidens would do the whole switching places with the queen thing as that seems to be something just done on Naboo. Also unlike Naboo I don’t think the Alderaanian handmaidens would double as bodyguards as Alderaan is suppose to be a pacifist planet so I don’t think they do that. That being said I do think Breha Organa would ￼have made sure that her handmaidens were taught self defence and I feel like Leia would do the same if she ever got handmaidens.
I feel like Alderaanian handmaidens job would be similar to the job of real life handmaidens or ladies in waiting. Like their main job is to take care of the Queen and keep her company.
So I see them playing games with each other and the Queen. I can totally see Breha playing sabacc with her handmaidens whenever Leia and Bail are off planet together. You cannot convince me that Breha doesn’t play sabacc are you telling me the woman who told Leia in LPOA that it dose a girl some good to ‘fall for a bit of a scoundrel every now and then’ doesn’t know how to play sabac! Impossible!
Obviously some of them would play instruments to entertain as it’s mentioned one of Breha’s attendants practicing the lute in Eclipse. I can also see music as being very popular on Alderaan as I see Alderaan as a planet where things like science and art really flourish.
I also think when the handmaidens are hanging out with the queen they’d do things like sewing, painting, reading and dancing. I also see Breha as the type of queen who would joke around and have casual conversations with her handmaidens and when she became involved with the Rebellion it’s possible she used her handmaidens to gather information about what was going on at the court like what Queen Elizabeth I did.
I think traditionally handmaidens are from Nobel families like ladies in waiting were usually in real life but I think some queen’s like Breha would have ladies from all classes attend on her.
So to sum up can someone please write a story that tells us more about handmaidens on Alderaan!!
'Gentleman and The Handmaiden' Ji Hyun-woo Steele is released .7 Years after KBS weekend drama return
the only film better than the handmaiden is the handmaiden (extended cut)
lady hideko may be my favourite character of all time
oh by the way mythal although is more exclusively open to DAI muses , she's still open to be interacted with beyond the constraints of the game as she would have spent time tracking down both dian & adlan across thedas since they both have gone missing one after the other due to separate but related reasons ( adlan being abducted from sehero & escaping tevinter while dian went on a large scale search for him without telling anyone about it ) .
there is also her consort , ideris , who has managed to send her a letter about actually having to meet elgar'nan who now has left the origins trail to trail after flemeth to kirkwall .
Need to write up a TCW Leverage AU* at some point. Please note this all stems from my need to have Ahsoka breaking into places she shouldn't be.
* the linked post is from several years before Leverage Redemption came out
All Leverage-based relationships are irrelevant unless it matches to TCW (e.g. The Ex in TCW is the Grifter's ex instead of the Mastermind's, BUT the Mentor still fits to the Thief).
The Mastermind: Cody
The Grifter: Obi-Wan
The Hitter: Rex
The Hacker: Anakin
The Thief: Ahsoka
The Inside Man: Padme
The Maker: nobody really fits this yet but I'm leaning towards Boba? I think he could work with the whole "getting dragged into your older sibling's Well-Intentioned Crimes after the FBI came looking for him at Dad's because he was stealing credit cards and doing DoD incursions."
Interpol: Mace, maybe? He's not smug enough for it, but he's got the competence part down.
The Sixth Ranger Grifter: Quinlan
The Ex: Satine
The Rival Hacker: ...god I really want it to be R2, but Hondo might be the right kind of annoying
The Mentor: Plo
The Ex-Con Dad: Jango
The Detective: Panaka? Aayla? Fox? I'm not sure.
Those Two FBI Guys: EITHER Sabe and Rabe OR Fives and Echo. I'm not entirely sure.
Mr. Quinn: Ventress
Revan: non-binary bisexual/pansexual
MY Revan: she/they, bi/pansexual flirt who adopts children like Pokémon
Bastila: not out to the family yet but bi or pan
Carth: bi wife energy
Jolee: straight but did some shit in his youth. Valid.
Juhani: my lesbian daughter
Canderous: he’s a Mandalorian
MY Exile: she/they, demisexual who is confused
Atton: straight, also did some shit.
Kreia: cranky old straight
Visas: no sexuality, just devotion to exile.
G0-T0: galactic stability
guys im obsessed with the handmaiden again and omg i love the movie so fucking much and the book is also great i love lesbians i think i may have watched it like 827628 times
I think one of my favorite things about Queen’s Peril is that Panaka walks up to Padme and says “I found you a best friend” and Padme says “Great, find me four more” and he does.
My older sister logged me into her Hulu cause she wanted me to watch handmaidens tale and damn this show is crazy…and like as a deconstructing, ig ex-Christian, even though half the biblical references are taken out of context and like that’s the reason the stuff is happening. It’s just crazy cause I know exactly what they are referencing with everything💀
