Thank you very, very much to everyone who ed this piece!
I usually make it a point to thank everyone individually, because I never take interest in my work - by anyone - for granted, but I have very limited time right now, so once again thank you very much! Every single comment and is truly appreciated and means a lot.
Based on a scene from Star Wars - Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Felt like doing a Star Wars based piece, since the news that there will be an Episode VII in due course. Not sure what they're going to do and I certainly hope Disney will still let the Lucasfilm people do their thing, regardless of the 4.6 billion dollar transfer. Not in the mood for Ewoks singing musicals and dancing through the forest of Endor...
