This is Geek Level Nine, but damn. Thanks to Phillylist, I find this, and I gotta say -- wow. Just ... wow. Star Wars Episodes 4-6 re-examined in context of 1-3, and much like the legendary recut of Episode 1, this guy's take on the Star Wars mythos is AU's more satisfying, particularly from a screenwriter's standpoint.
Anyone who can convincingly argue R2-D2 is the mastermind of the Rebellion is aces in my book. Nicely done, Keith.
