No Name...hehe

It's official; I'm auditioning for The Secret Garden on Saturday.

I'm really excited, but also nervous. I haven't had any time to work on my monologue, since I've been studying for my science final that I took yesterday. Christmas Break is HERE!!!!!!!!

I'm going to be acting as Jo March from Little Women for my audition piece. The following is the part that I'm doing.....
"I hate affected, niminy-piminy girls! I'm not a young lady and if turning up my hair makes me one, I'll wear it in two tails till I'm twenty!  I hate to think that I've got to grow up, and be Miss March, and wear long gowns, and look as prim as a China-aster! It's bad enough to be a girl, anyway, when I like boys' games and work and manners! I can't get over my disappointment in not being a boy; and it's worse than ever now, for I'm dying to go and fight with Papa, and I can only stay at home and knit, like a poky old woman!"
This is going to involve a great amount of acting, because I am very happy to be a girl and I make it my goal to act like a lady. But of all the March sisters, I am most like Jo. It's a toss-up. I can't wait to audition, though. My teacher is going to be very proud of me. I am going up against at least 100 other people and we're all trying to get one out of seven spots--four guy roles and three girl roles.

On another note, I am COMPLETELY confused about the SW EU timeline. Can someone with more knowledge than me tell me what comes after Isard's Revenge? I had Jedi Search for the next one, but after reading reviews on Amazon that talk about Luke coming back to the Jedi after turning to the dark side has me confused. There's been no mention of him turning in any of the books I've read. Help?

Let's hope Qui gets that singing video sorted out or has a grand idea for a new post! Till next time,


  1. OMG that IS from the scene I did my first semester of drama!!! I remember it very well now!!! :D

  2. Oh and I think that you are a mix of Beth and Jo.

    *is Jo all the way*

  3. Good luck on the audition!

  4. Isard's Revenge is in the X Wing series by Michael Stackpole and Aaron Allston. The next book in the series is Starfighters of Adumar(the most hilarious x wing book ever.)

    But(this is where it gets confusing)the series itself is all mixed up, so the next books chronologically is the Jedi Academy Trilogy, I, Jedi, Children of the Jedi, Darksaber, and then Starfighters of Adumar.

    To make it even more confusing, the comics are on a whole other timeline. Isard's Revenge takes place in 9ABY, and the Jedi Academy Trilogy takes place in 11ABY. Dark Empire, the comic in which Luke turns to the dark side, is in 10 ABY, thus in between between Isard's Revenge and the Jedi Academy Trilogy. The reason you don't find it on the novel timeline is it's not a novel.

    Dark Empire is one of my least favorite additions to the Star Wars world, second only to the Legacy comics.

    Good luck on the audition!

  5. Basically for a complete list of the entire EU books, go to wookieepedia and search list of star wars books. That's where I go when I get mixed up.

    Good luck on your audition! I'll be cheering you on from my computer and keyboard! ;D

  6. Yes, but Dark Empire isn't listed on that one, because it's a comic. That's probably why it's confusing.

    And for the list of adult star wars novels only(there is a separate one for comics, etc.) http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_adult_novels

  7. Amaranthine, you are officially the EU expert!!!
    Padme, Good Luck!!!!! Have fun at your audition!! Like Leia, I'll be computer cheering for you! :D
