Oh, the sweet innocent soul who said something along the lines of “the Star Wars fandom is too big to disagree about anything!”


The Star Wars fandom is always ready to fight itself, canon, the EU, the New EU, the various gradations of the old EU, the movies, the shows, the comics, the video games, George Lucas, JJ Abrams, Dave Filoni, the actors, the voice actors, the writers, Dark Horse, Marvel, Del Rey, other fandoms, the real world, actual facts…

Scully: Okay, if… if you’re trying to politely say “no”, it’s okay. I understand.
Mulder: See what’s weird is… this sounds, and this sounds really weird, I know, but I just wouldn’t want this to come between us.
Scully: Yeah. I know… I understand. I do.
Mulder: Well… the answer is yes.
