Star Wars Day 2019

The force will be with you.

Y Haiku #atozchallenge

Talks backwards, he does,
And teaches, “There is no try—
You do, or do not.”

Here’s the haiku puzzle for the day in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. What character from science fiction or fantasy has a name starting with Y and is suggested by the haiku? I think this one should be relatively easy for most people, even those who are not major fans. He’s small and looks like a Muppet, but you do NOT want to get on his dark side! Know who I’m talking about? Tell us in the comments.

V Haiku #atozchallenge

Ruling the Death Star
In a black cape and helmet –
“I am your father”

For today’s A to Z Blogging Challenge, try to identify the science fiction/fantasy word, starting with V, that’s suggested by the haiku. It’s another character name, and it’s one of the most familiar names in the science fantasy realm. Bad guy with a black cape, helmet, loud breathing sounds – I’m sure you know who this is! Tell us in the comments.

L Haiku #atozchallenge

Rebellion leaders,
twin children of Darth Vader,
both strong in the Force

In today’s A to Z blog challenge you have two chances to win, because there are two words beginning with L that are suggested by the haiku and related to science fiction or fantasy. You know what’s always bugged me about these two characters? One is a princess, so shouldn’t her twin be a prince? Doesn’t seem fair. Anyway, once you figure out either of these two names (or even both, you overachiever!), let us know in the comments.

J Haiku #atozchallenge

Masters of the Force
lifting up their lightsabers
against the dark side

Back again with another haiku puzzle for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Today’s word starts with J, and it is a term from science fiction/fantasy that is suggested by the haiku. It’s a very old word (you might even say it’s from “a long time ago”); it came to our galaxy in 1977. Know what it is? Tell us in the comments.

C Haiku #atozchallenge

Shiny golden droid –
An expert in protocol
and causing trouble

Back again for the next installment of the haiku puzzles in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Can you figure out the science fiction/fantasy word implied by today’s haiku that begins with the letter C? Something from a galaxy far away, long ago? Actually, today’s entry isn’t technically a word. It’s kind of a name, but mostly a string of letters and numbers. It does start with C, though. Once you get it, let us know in the comments.
