Help me, Obi-wan Kenobi flist ... Do Wookiees' have paws or hands? Neither the Star Wars databanks nor Wookieepedia will give me an answer.

Hmm. Neither really seems right to me, given their combination of manual dexterity and retractable claws.

Going from memory, I think Chewie is usually be referred to as having paws. It doesn't quite sound right, but then with the claws and the fur, hands doesn't sound right either. Hm.

Sorry, not very helpful, I know. :p

S'OK :) I just don't want to violate some existing agreed term, either fannish or canon. But if there is no consensus, I guess I'll go with paws... although it still doesn't seem right!

Doesnt Chewie have hands? Isnt that how he can hold weapons? They're just really well hidden in all the fur?

Maybe you could refer to them and Pands or Haws? LOL.

I'm sure I'm not helpful, since I havent even seen a full star wars movie. Please dont shoot me. *hides*

Well, he has something, I'm just not sure if they are normally called hands or paws! And 'pands' could be a little confusing in a fic :P

I havent even seen a full star wars movie.

WHAT! Blasphemy! How on earth have you managed to go this long without watching one?

You should watch the Original Trilogy, at least. They're flawed, but when they are good, they are brilliant.

*plots to kidnap you and make you watch them*

I've tried watching Star Wars, but eh, I just cant get into it. Not even Harrison Ford can draw me watch - and I will watch *anything* for a perv on him. And I like sci-fi too, so thats not the issue. Who knows.

Eh, fair enough. Everything can't be for everyone, I guess.

And at least we can agree that Harrison Ford is hot!

I like the leggo star wars game, if that helps! And the first-person-shooter one. Where you're like, storm troopers I think? It has "commander" or something in the title. Whatever. lol.

And yes Harrison Ford = sex god.

*laughs* Ironically, I don't play any of the games (I don't play games generally), although the Lego Star Wars ones have got to be the Cutest Thing Eva. I spent a lot of time watching my friends run around and blast one another into little lego bits *g*

I played a demo of the lego star wars once and then found it for like $10 somewhere, I admit though, I played it for a few hours and havent touched it since. LOL. Its still cute though.

And the other one my brother owns, I've only played it once or twice, but it was quite good too.

I'd say incredibly furry hands, moreso than paws. Not that I'd really know, I'm a bit of a sidelines fan for Star Wars.

I could cope with furry hands, except for the claws - I just can't get my head around the concept of hands with retractable claws.

He has, er, paw-like hands? They're so covered with fur that you can't make it out, actually.

I could go for 'furry stumps', since that's all we actually see *g*

It's one of those things you don't even think about until you go to write it down, and then you're stuck for what word to use...

Um, pands? haws? Sorry, I'm no help here.

*snicker* I wonder what the reaction would be if I used either of those terms in the fic... *g*

Sadly, there's probably a portion of the fanfic reading population who wouldn't say boo about it. :-)

Because they wouldn't notice, or they wouldn't comment? Either way, you're probably right.

I was thinking they wouldn't notice, but the second option is probably true too.
