Women of Star Wars Appreciation Week on Tumblr

Women of Star WarsToday kicks off the Women of Star Wars Appreciation Week on Tumblr. From the event’s page:

Women of Star Wars Appreciation Week starts today! The event tags are #woswaw and #woswweek.

The prompts are:

Monday, 17.08: Don’t look back.

Tuesday, 18.08: You know, you two have more in common than you think. It’s no wonder you get along so well.

Wednesday, 19.08: Somebody has to save our skins!

Thursday, 20.08: It’s only the likes of me, with nothing to lose, who’ll really be prepared to tear the galaxy down and start over.

Friday, 21.08: You’re going down a path I can’t follow.

Saturday, 22.08: If all you do is fight for your own life then your life is worth nothing.

Sunday, 23.08: You can call me ‘Great One’. Most people do.

Let’s have a great time celebrating our favorite Star Wars ladies. May the Force be with you!

Gifsets, fanfiction, fanart, fanmixes, fanvids, and meta are accepted. Beyond the obvious Shmi Skywalker gif sets for today’s prompt, some contributions are inspired Ashoka Tano tie-ins and fanfic featuring Depa Billaba, Rey, and Asajj Ventress. Here’s some of my favorites so far.
