It’s not an exaggeration to say that Star Wars shaped me from a young age. I saw A New Hope in the theatre during its original run, and it sparked a love of science fiction and fantasy that has never faded. I like Star Trek too, but I could never love it as much as I love Star Wars, my first genre love and oldest genre flame.
I chose a gif of Han because Ari and I both adore the scruffy nerf-herding scoundrel. I… have to admit my first Star Wars crush was Luke. Give me a break! I was eight years old. I didn’t have the appreciation for scoundrels at that tender age. I developed it quickly, believe me! 😉
