    on Thrawn and the autistic experience

    or: Why Thrawn's experience in both the Ascendancy and the Empire is relatable to me (personally. It might not be relatable to you, and that is okay)

    content warnings: ableism (external and internalized)

    Recently, I am having many thoughts about Thrawn - as you do - but the one that I keep coming back to is: How does Thrawn view his own neurodivergence?

    "Lesser Evil" confirms to us that, at least according to Thrass, Thrawn has issues picking up on subtext and social cues in conversations, "nuances", as Thrass describes it.

    ["lesser evil", memories IV]

    Thrawn agrees with him there, and what's more, he comments that this is "sadly" the case.

    I have so many feelings about that.

    Thrawn seems to view his own otherness as something that holds him back, something that stops him from fitting in. The Ascendancy trilogy (and the 2017 Thrawn trilogy as well) show us over and over again that Thrawn does not fit in. He does not fit in with his own people, he does not fit in with the Empire. He is not a typical Chiss. He is not a typical Empire Grand Admiral.

    He struggles to explain his own thought processes (In Chaos Rising, he says that he'd love to explain them but can't), and he struggles to understand politics and social situations - things that are so crucial in the spaces he operates in.

    All his life, Thrawn learns to view the things that make him different as something that needs to be useful at all costs. He is only of use to both the Ascendancy and the Empire as long as his smart little brain does its job. He finds patterns, he analyzes art, he tries his best to do what's necessary to help his people.

    He can be autistic but only if he's useful. He's not allowed to be anything but the kid with the bright future. And in the Empire, he's not allowed to be anything but a loyal strategist. His neurodivergence is constantly exploited, and then punished the second it's no longer convenient.

    "Sadly, I do sometimes have problems in that area."

    He probably doesn't even know he's not the only one. He might not even know that this is not something to be ashamed of. He might not even realize that this isn't a weakness but simply a part of him.

    I grew up thinking that if I just tried hard enough, I could understand others and fit in. I can't. But this is not a weakness. This is who I am. I have friends who understand. I have friends who love me for it and not despite of it.

    I need Thrawn to understand that he doesn't need to be useful to exist. I need him to know that he is loved. He has friends that love him for who he is and not for what he can do.

    In conclusion: I understand how it feels to be praised for the things that people thought were useful, and shamed for the things they didn't understand. I understand how it feels to grow up thinking something was wrong with me without a word for it.

    Was playing piano backstage after a theatre rehearsal, and the directors asked if I’d be down to play music when people come in before the performance. Going to add the song I was playing to the list of songs to play when people come in, the song in question...? Thrawn’s theme from rebels ;)

    ...No ones gotta know...

    #they said they wanted spooky music and I guess it fit their bill #damn can’t do quotation marks around spooky in tags #well... spooky or just dramatic/suspenseful #star wars#sw#chiss ascendancy#thrawn trilogy#Thrawn#mitth’raw’nuruodo#piano

    I'm so worried that with all the Mt. Tantiss references in Bad Batch and cloning scientists in mandalorian, the Ahsoka show and Mando S3 are gonna hit us up with an army of Evil Ezra Clones. I just couldn't handle that. Please no please!!!!

    #Let's take all the worst parts of the original Thrawn trilogy and put them in our show #thrawn#ezra bridger#ahsoka show #The only way I'd accept Ezra clones is if they were like the Fel clones and just decided to like farm chickens are something

    Palpatine: And you are loyal to my Empire?

    Thrawn: So loyal.

    Palpatine: How loyal?

    Thrawn: *spiriting away Eli Vanto* Loyal until the oceans of Kamino dry.

    Palpatine: Really?

    Thrawn: *saving chiss-navigators and sending them back home instead of to the Empire* Loyal like the twin suns of Tatooine rising together 4ever, bestie.

    Palpatine: Pinky-swear?

    Thrawn: *saving more navigators, cooperating with chiss military and stealing another officer from the Empire* Pinky-swear.

    my thoughts as I read Thrawn: Treason

    heads-up for spoilers and a lot of rambling

    - That one lady being so convinced that Thrawn isn't that smart and it's definitely gotta be Eli his personal boy like no ma'am they're just both gay and nerds


    - Ar'alani 😳

    - Thrawn being bad at politics will never fail to be absolutely hilarious. he just doesn't fucking care and I love that for him. Krennic was just like "I'm gonna give him a deadline that's obviously impossible" Thrawn: "yeah ok I can do that" Krennic: shocked Pikachu meme

    - Ronan is a terrible little rat man and I hope he dies

    - Thrawn literally just acting like Eli vanished into thin air. like bud. no one is that fucking stupid

    - GOOD DAY LT. VANTO Thrawn you absolute onion of a man that is not how you greet your boyfriend who you SHIPPED OFF SUDDENLY

    - "Palpatine knows Eli is with the Chiss" NO HE FUCKING DOESN'T YOU LYING LIAR

    - the secret moments when Eli and Thrawn are "talking" you KNOW they kissing back there. You cant fool me Zahn. I KNOW

    - "I'm a Death Trooper. I've killed countless people, I'm trained in heavy martial combat and I'm strong enough to crush a watermelon with my bare hands. My name is Waffles."

    - Mole is a perfect character and I love him

    - nevermind

    - if anyone so much as LOOKS at Un'hee wrong I will rip them apart with my own two hands

    - Ar'alani being soft with Un'hee and Vah'nya 🥺

    - Faro and Eli need to have some hang out time so they can complain about heir Chiss leaders. they just need to like braid each other's hair and gossip.

    - Just once I want Eli or Faro to call Ronan a bitch. please.

    - Vah'nya asking Eli to do that and I just 😭 and him saying yes and then being honest with Ar'alani and her being proud of him. I LOVE THEM

    - Thrawn literally took one look at Savit and said "I'm gonna play you like the cheap kazoo you are"


    - Ronan has not died and I'm mad about it

    - wow that epilogue really colors the last season of Rebels for me. many thoughts...

    I can't wait to read the Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy!

    but first ZAHN where's the Thrawn and Ezra shenanigans book series please?? I NEED IT

    #thrawn#thrawn treason #hopefully people enjoy my thoughts #i really liked this trilogy #and usually by the end of a trilogy i hate it #so this was very pleasantly surprising #star wars#long post

    man Thrawn: Alliances is absolutely unhinged. Thrawn and Vader hating each other is so perfect and Anakin being an absolute useless idiot in front of Thrawn is hilarious.

    "So you're a Jedi."

    "how did you know?"

    "well there's only Sith and Jedi and seeing as Sith are really cool and compitent in a fight and you literally just fell on your ass and then took a nap I can only conclude that you're a Jedi."


    Thrawn would've loved Obi-Wan. They would've been both best friends and perfect adversaries. Everyone loves Obi as a nemesis instead of Anakin. Cause Obi is wise and usually has a plan with many contingencies while Anakin is over there shotgunning 2 red bulls and then yelling "watch this motherfuckers!" and then immediately getting shot. like of COURSE everyone wants to fight Obi

    I wish we had gotten Obi and Thrawn interactions ):
