phil-the-stone replied to your post “I JUST REMEMBERED there is an episode of the young indy chronicles…”

BRO WHERE CAN I START WATCHING THIS ONLINE

i am FAIRLY SURE that most of the episodes EACH OF WHICH ARE ACTUAL FEATURE MOVIE LENGTH BLESS U GEORGE LUCAS are on youtube

the wiki page provides a handy list of viewing order the names might be different b/c they were re edited i think?

NOW BEAR IN MIND there are two seperate eras covered

1. young young ten year old indy having adventures with other young people

2. THIS BABE having EXTREMLEY COMPELLING adventures during WWI

sean patrick flannery everyone

OK SO george lucas specifically commissioned and produced the show (along with RICK MCCALLUM who produced the prequel trilogy OK WOW) as something that would get kids interested in history AND BOY DOES IT DELIVER

some of the FASCINATING historical topics and personages covered

  • lawrence of arabia
  • the suffrage movement ft. young winston churchill
  • WHAT WENT ON DURING WWI IN GERMAN EAST AFRICA AND THE CONGO DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS
  • charles de gaulle
  • pablo picasso
  • the ballets russes
  • PROHIBITION AND JAZZ
  • THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION OF 1917
  • indy asks SIGMUND FREUD and KARL JUNG for dating advice I KID U NOT
  • FRANZ. KAFKA.
  • ACTION HEROS SEAN O’ CASEY AND SEAN LEMASS FEATURING WB YEATS I SOBBED FOR JOY THROUGH THE ENTIRE THING (“YER A BLOODY FENIAN” “Sean d’ye not want Ireland t’be free?” “I WANT A SOCIALIST IRELAND, Y’EEJIT” )
  • CHINA
  • INDIA
  • MATA HARI
  • the treaty of versailles
  • toLsTOY
  • john ford im not making any of this up
  • the red baron SO MUCH COOL WWI STUFF

LITERALLY this show is just a giant vehicle for indy to explore and meet cool people and explore NON. WESTERN. CENTRIC. HISTORY. it is so entertaining and so flippin educational and so well produced and acted the attention to accurate historical detail is fantastic (like there is an episode set in dublin 1916 and as someone who lives here I CAN CONFIRM that there are exactly 0 cringy irish accents and all the buildings are pretty much the real thing its that good) and so so so so so not focused on boring well off european/american people it is about meeting and understanding new cultures and i just

just

watch it

im sorry i went on such a rant now i gotta watch it again bye thank you

do u see why i love george lucas so much like who cares if his writing was a bit dull sometimes do u know how much good he did in the world

In the interests of spreading this fabulous show I shall attempt to compile a list but I apologise for the dubious quality/unsynced audio/unknown eastern european language subtitles. the episodes were originally aired under different titles but were later re-edited into feature length episodes with new bridging segments etc. The older versions used to have a framing narrative of Old Man Indy relating his adventures to various offspring/progeney, but they were retconned out of the re-edits on account of being nineties as hell. ok here goes

small ten year old indy doing things w/parents

at this point indy levels up and all of a sudden oh no he’s hot

SO THERE YOU GO

once again i apologise for the terrible aspect ratios etc so if you find better versions LET ME KNOW cause i wanna make a proper masterpost

BLESS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU MY FREIND

I … Don’t actually think so? I’ve never thought about it that way, tbh. Maybe. It’s actually a plausible scenario, now that I consider it, because the funky machine thing had needles on it. If I recall correctly.
I mean, I’ve always tried to rationalize it by saying that okay, Vader probed his mind with he Force or something and he was in too much pain to notice, but that sort of explanation always felt off-kilter to me, like I was weakly pulling at straws to make sense of it. (The thing is, I always get really uncomfortable when there are torture scenes, no matter how much I rationalize em in my brain, so that part’s always really bugged me. But the fact that it seemed almost ooc on Vader’s part bothers me too.)
So, considering your idea:
- It is POSSIBLE that they were injecting him with something to prepare for the carbon freeze, though that seems like an awful lot of pain and time and effort to go through for just a couple injections.
- If it was really done for the freezing process, wouldn’t they want him to be at optimal strength before subjecting him to that sort of shit, even though his life was technically “disposable”? I mean, scientific experimentation requires a mostly-controlled test run, doesn’t it? You don’t want to base your results on something totally riddled with external variables, and Vader’s not stupid. So the idea that carbon freezing Han as a test was purely on a whim/out of spite/convenience sits better with me.
- I mean, this would be a lot easier to figure if we knew what was happening to Leia. There’s actually a very high chance they were asking HER questions, only, they were making her watch, and then asking the questions through that. Because of course, Darth Trasher can sense emotions, so he’d want to use that against them, because he’s horrible. So there’s a very high chance that that was what was going on, only Han didn’t know what was happening to Leia
- of course, this doesn’t mean we ought to dismiss the possibility of chemicals completely, because I’m sure hallucinogens or other such drugs were probably used to muddle his brain, or whatever, make him easier to cart around? I have no idea. Again, this would be a lot easier if we knew what was happening on leia’s end of the deal. Like, notice how she’s changed her clothes when she kneels down beside Han in the holding cell? When did that happen? HOW did that happen? Right?

So, to conclude: there is a very high chance drugs were involved, like you said. However, I don’t believe that carbon freezing Han was a totally premeditated thing. So going through all that to inject him with chemicals is perhaps not as plausible as first supposed. However, it IS plausible and very likely that they used Han to get answers out of Leia. In fact, it could be a combination of both scenarios, actually. HMM. Anyone else have some thoughts?

((Aaaaand I’m still really uncomfortable with torture but at least this makes a little more sense?))

GUYS YOU KNOW WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED OKAY SO: 

"What’s the worse you can do?" Han says, looking great and cocky on the outside but pretty freaked out on the inside. Because, you know, he’s heard things about the Empire’s "interrogations", and they, well, really know how to put the terror in it. “Nothing you could do will make me answer your questions.” 

"I won’t be asking you any,” says the Creepy Guy in Black. He clears his throat, voice permanently raspy and low. Han braces himself. Other Imperial officers either leave or put in ear plugs.

AUGH A FATE WORSE THAN DEATH
ok but more seriously
i always assumed that the whole ‘torture luke’s friends thing’ was exactly that. just… torture luke’s friends so much that he’ll sense it and come rushing in to save them. which is exactly what happened. i mean, vader already knows how force-sensitive luke is right?

That’s … Actually probably the simplest most logical explanation.
Wow.
