"Hello there! I'm Amadé (Or just Ama) and I basically grew up with Star Wars.
My father’s a pretty big Star Wars fan so I got into the fandom quite early.
The first movie I really watched was “The Force Awakens” though
(pls don’t judge me, I know & agree - it’s not the best)
and that got me completely into the fandom.
My favorite Character is Kenobi and with the new series coming up
I decided to jump into a new adventure and make a new Zine!
Pretty excited about this ♥”

I am never going to give you up,
let you down, run around and desert you,
make you cry, say goodbye
or tell a lie and hurt you.
Except when it comes to rickrolling

"Heather here! I got into Star Wars in 2020 and haven't been the same since.
My current hobbies include crying over the prequels
and going to theme parks, which is totally a hobby I promise.
I'm super happy to be here,
helping to work on a zine to one of Star Wars' best boys."

Shell - Layout
"Hello there! ShellMinded is a graphic designer
and variety artist with more WIPs than common sense.
A jack of all trades, they go where the concept takes them,
and currently those ideas are all Star Wars for this lifelong fan.
A fan of anything weird and wonderful,
their brain permanently resides in
a galaxy far far away"
