A. 35. Feminist, fuck TERFs. Mix three parts fandom with four parts social justice, add a dash of nature, and stir in a few sprinkles of whatever hits my fancy. I also run The Blast of a Trumpet when I remember to.

Time loop Anakin who spent a few (hundred) loops centered around an annoying encounter with Dooku getting angrier and more panicked and then finally he gets annoyed and Done ™️ instead and just spends the entire loop acting bored out of his mind and going “can we get to the part where [thing]” and banging his head on the wall and both Dooku and Obi-Wan assume he just had a REALLY detailed vision and that’s why he’s predicting things so well, but NO he’s just lived this so many times that he’s done trying because nothing worked to break it (including murder, fleeing, and technically suicide that one time he took a fatal hit to save Obi-Wan), and he’s emotionally exhausted.

And that, Anakin finding peace through learning to stop being angry at the world by simply Not Giving A Shit Anymore, is what finally breaks the loop.

(At least he got a lot of practice fighting Dooku out of it.)

“Are we done yet? Can I go? Are you–are you done talking? Please be done talking.”

Obi-Wan turned, startled, to the sound of Anakin’s saber hitting the ground. No, scratch that, the sound of Anakin throwing his saber to the ground.

“What—” Obi-Wan began to say, bewildered, but Anakin was already turning away to—open a hidden cabinet on Dooku’s ship?

Dooku looked equally bewildered and thunderous. “What in the name of the Force do you think you’re doing Skywalker?” 

“I surrender, I’m on your side now, just like your Master wanted,” Anakin responded absently, opening a shimmering box to reveal—truffles?

“You’re—get your grubby paws off of those!” Dooku shouts, outraged. “Do you have any idea how much those cost?”

“No,” Anakin said, mouth full, absently dodging furniture the Sith Lord sent hurtling at him. “Neifer do you. Dere a gift, right?”

Still eating, he wandered across the room, then pulled a portrait off the wall to reveal a hidden safe, which he began inputting numbers into.

“What—how do you know that’s there?” Dooku asked, vibrating with fury.

“Your Master told me,” he responded absently. “I told you, I’m defecting to the darkside.”

Dooku and Obi-Wan exchanged a glance.

Kenobi opened his mouth but Dooku held up a hand, a calculating expression on his face.

“My Master told you,” The Count repeated flatly.

“Yes, your Master, Darth Sidious, or should I say—” Anakin paused dramatically, making direct eye contact with Dooku. “—Senator Taneel.”

…Who?” 

“Oh, I guess she’s not it,” Anakin sighed, as the safe burst into flames. “Well, I’m bound to get lucky eventually.”

Obi-Wan finally gathered himself up to speak. “Anakin. What are you doing?” 

It’s okay, Master,” he said, sliding around the Sith Lord and opening a wall to reveal a hidden liquor cabinet, dodging an enraged saber attack without looking. “You said I didn’t have to keep explaining, since it was stressing me out, as long as I gave you that.” Something flew through the air; Obi-Wan caught it, raising an eyebrow at he realized it was an obscenely expensive bottle of Retsa, from one of his favorite distillers. 

He looked up, only to be greeted with the sight of Anakin depositing an unconscious Dooku on a settee.

“Anakin—how—”

“Master,” Anakin replied serenely. “I promise you, I know what I’m doing. Just sit down, enjoy, and relax; I’ve got this.”

Obi-Wan sighed, collapsing onto a couch. 

“Very well, Anakin. I trust you,” he muttered, unstoppering the bottle.

Anakin rewarded him a blinding grin. 

“You know, I never get tired of hearing you say that.”

Poor Anakin. How many Senators are in the Senate? 2000 is just a percentage of the total. How many names does Anakin even know? And he won’t name Palpatine, won’t even think of it, so it’s like, 6000 loops later, when he’s exhausted all the Senator names that he, Obi-Wan, and ones he extracted out of Dooku on alternate loops, and still isn’t getting a hit.

I absolutely love that last line, though: I never get tired of hearing you say that.

The figure-out-the-Sith-Lord thing is ongoing because Anakin keeps getting positive reinforcement from Obi-Wan on each loop.

Okay chaps. Here we go. This is for all the people (and yes, there was more than one) who requested Obi-Wan in an oversized/soft sweater (dog bless you all). I threw in the additional suggestions of PJs and a cup of tea for good measure because I appreciate efficiency, and I also appreciate all of you.

HOW THE FUCK IS IT STILL GOING AHAHAHAHAHA

Whoever posted Yodito with the macaron is clearly a time traveler.

Din knew that the man felt anger. They’d talked about it before, during those late nights at the kitchen table: at his masters, at his father, at the Emperor and the Empire. He’d seen the turbulence of it under the surface, the way Skywalker’s jaw tightened as he recounted the past or the way he paused before speaking, as if letting something pass through him. He knew that Skywalker’s anger had mellowed over the years, that it was twinned with compassion, that the desire for revenge he’d felt had transmuted into a desire for active justice. It was the Jedi way, Skywalker explained: to sit with negative emotion and then to move through it, letting it go to be a thing of the past. Over time it became less and less, until it was no longer a burden pressed tight and heavy to the body.

It sounded peaceful.

It sounded hard.

(Or, Din sees Luke angry for the first time.)

I love Mandalorians so much. They're all digging their own graves all the time and arguing about how this method of grave digging is much better than that OTHER guy's method of grave digging. Sometimes they get into wars with each other about whose grave is better. It never occurs to them to stop digging.

Mandos: omg u guys are so good at killing us 😍

Jedi: ...if you'd stop hunting us for sport we wouldn't have to do that

Mandos: no ❤️

The time of the Jedi is over.“ It’s painful enough that Obi-Wan can’t use the Force because people would know he was a Jedi, that he can’t even speak about the trauma of living through his people’s genocide, that he can’t even practice his own religious culture, but what’s really destroying me is that it isn’t just the Force stuff that Obi-Wan is no longer doing, it’s the Jedi philosophy of emotional regulation that comes with the Force and being a Jedi. Obi-Wan has fallen to his grief, it is consuming him, it is warping him, it’s not just that he’s turning away people like Nari, but that he’s also holding onto his pain, he’s not letting it go.  The Force is based on your emotional wellbeing, if you connect to the Force through anger and fear and pain, that is the dark side.  If you connect to it through compassion and calm and love, that is the light side.  Jedi have to accept the circumstances they find themselves in, they have to let go of their hurts, because their connection to the Force is fundamentally about that emotional wellbeing, it’s not just Jedi philosophy, it’s literally how the Force works. But Obi-Wan isn’t a Jedi anymore.  The time of the Jedi is over. So he holds onto his pain, he holds onto his hurt, he holds onto his attachment to Anakin, which is the inability to accept that life changes and you have to let go when it’s time, you cannot grasp onto something so hard that you crush it because you are afraid to live without it, that’s what attachment is.  It is everything the Jedi have trained against doing. But the time of the Jedi is over. The Jedi and their light and their teachings and their ways are gone, so he holds on because he doesn’t know how to let go of mourning Anakin and the Jedi, even when Bail Organa himself calls him desperately and pleads with him to help save Leia.  It’s not until Bail hauls his ass all the way out to Tatooine and tells him, right to his face, “Move on. Be done with it.” Those words brought me to tears, because Bail Organa isn’t just telling Obi-Wan to rescue his daughter to be a Jedi again, but telling him to let it fucking go, because that’s what Jedi do.  Protect people with your lightsaber when you can, love them and help them when you can, but when the time comes, if you can’t save them, you have to train yourself to let go. George Lucas says that’s how the Force and Star Wars and the Jedi work and I am IN PAIN because Obi-Wan truly believes that the Jedi are dead, that his old life is dead, and it’s not just swinging his lightsaber around or making people float that he’s buried in the ground, but his willingness to accept the circumstances he’s in and to move with the flow of what’s happened. The Jedi say you can’t destroy yourself in your grief–and Obi-Wan is destroying himself in his grief here, he is doing exactly everything that the Jedi warn will happen when you don’t let go.  He’s been unwilling to let go of his feelings, because he’s not a Jedi anymore. He doesn’t connect to the Force because that would mean he would need to let go of his feelings and he can’t do that. The time of the Jedi is over, he says, and we see what it’s doing to him, how it destroys him day by day.  He may not be sinking into the dark side, only because he’s not using the Force, but he is suffering all the more for it, because he has forsaken the lessons of the Jedi.  Because the time of the Jedi is over.

And a twist of cruel irony, rejecting who he is as a Jedi because it hurts too much and it’s easier to wallow presumably does the same thing it did to Kanan: it cuts him off from Yoda (and probably Qui-Gon too), all he has left of the Order and of home. By refusing to let go of the pain, all he gains is more loneliness and pain.
