5. Willows Wept Review redux.
Dear Darth Vader,
Vader, I love you & think you are a total badass, but when you lost Padme and yelled NOOO! Yah, that was super lame. You are supposed to be a person filled with anger & evil, not love and compassion. You really let me down with that NO. In fact, you did not only let me down, but you let all of us down, all of us Star Wars fans. Next time, be a little bit more of an evil badass, not a pretty princess.
Yours Truly, Simón Gutkin

Specifically this piece by Brandi Wells:
I’m ending the post on a high note. There is no where else to go from here.
