Star Wars Fandom Preferences Poll

I just signed up to do the newbieguide for the Star Wars fandom. It'll take me a little while to get this done, but I have six months. I'm pretty good with LJ comms (I've been working at jedi_news for three years, ffs), but in case naboonotes is missing something, rec away. If there's some LJ RSS feeds for off-site places I don't know about, I'd especially like those.

I made this little poll out of curiosity to see how the SW fandom swings on LJ. I'd particularly appreciate you voting, even if you don't normally read my journal or share my interests. I'm generally curious about the voting. I apologize for the limited number of characters in the selection, but I was picking main film characters. Feel free to add comments with your favorite secondary or EU character, and I'll add it up to the tally. Same thing with the ships--I tried to go for the major ones I see. I will post results in a week. I'd really appreciate if people pimped this around, so I can get a broad spectrum of LJ fandom.


ETA: I forgot a few characters/ships (s'what happens when you make polls at 3:30AM), and I also ran out of room, so if I've not included your favorite/least favorite anythings, please just check "Other" and comment below with their names. I do tally info from the comments.
ETA 2: In case you're wondering why I don't have a list of the EU characters, it's because I don't know enough about all of the EU to really know who's a main character and who's not, so I just ask if you're an EU person to check "Other" and comment below with their names. in general, if you don't see your preferences listed, check "Other" and comment below with that preference.

Lastly, George Lucas, JK Rowling, and Joss Whedon walk into a bar...

... and meet a priest, a rabbi, and a minister. Everyone is very confused about the situation.
16(9.3%)
... and argue over the merits of film vs. books vs. television. The bartender kicks them out after they beat other with beer bottles and chairs.
4(2.3%)
... and force Anakin Skywalker, Harry Potter, and Buffy Summers to duel. Obi-Wan Kenobi jumps in and kills them all. Then Luke Skywalker makes him feel bad about that.
42(24.4%)
... and order a drink and a have a peaceful conversation about their crazy, crazy fandoms. Meanwhile, on the other side of the bar, Han may or may not have shot first. Greedo still dies.
49(28.5%)
... and discover that their combined gravitas in the same room will cause the universe to implode on 12/21/2012.
21(12.2%)
... and I've heard this one already.
9(5.2%)


My meta on how war film themes relate to Star Wars and to the upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been delayed by Darth Real Life, but I will have it done soon. It will be academic in nature, but with an informal tone. I'm trying to make it as fun as I'm capable of, given the subject.
