Fan Fiction

Last week, Zoë obsessively searched the Internet for images of Darth Maul. This week, she is all about Ahsoka Tano from The Clone Wars. As for me, I’ve started using Yoda speak around the house — teeth brushed, you should.

For at least two years now, she has written and told herself stories based on texts, games or movies that she has experienced. It just seems to be a part of her fabric to process narrative in this way.

Sadly, in this story, Ahsoka has been captured by Jabba the Hutt and seems conscripted to slavery à la Princess Leia in Return of the Jedi. The details of the “unhygienic clothing” (Zoë’s words) are particularly accurate, as are the expressions on Jabba’s wretched face. The story is not yet done…but I suspect the friends will be back to free Ahsoka from her terrible captor…stay tuned.
