Also, Qui-Gon time travels/is brought back to life somehow - Obi-Wan is a mixture of anxious and ecstatic, and at first Anakin is happy - but then Qui-Gon starts taking up all of Obi-Wan's attention and, like, not even treating him that well (I have issues with how Qui treated Obi, can you tell) and Anakin is like - No. This Cannot Stand.

(TBH I just live at a point of vaguely throwing salt in Qui Gon’s direction).

I feel like at first Anakin vies for Qui Gon’s attention with Obi Wan - like this is the man who technically freed him from slavery and brought him to the Jedi (and was going to be his Master originally) please look at me and acknowledge that I did good. Meanwhile Obi Wan’s doing the exact same thing. And I feel like Qui Gon would actually give Anakin priority attention - this is the Chosen One he found all grown up and probably very much the kind of Jedi he feels proud of (a little rebellious, defiant of the council, etc. etc.) so Anakin gets his full of praise and then goes back to his own thing.

Obi Wan however, is still trying for the attention he wants/needs and sure Qui Gon is giving him attention but it’s highly critical attention mingled with the praise (he is torn between finding it hilarious and horrifying that Obi Wan ended up with a seat on the council). I guess in a way he just keeps treating him as his Padawan despite the fact that Obi Wan is now a Jedi Master. And Obi Wan just happily falls back into line because he’s missed his Master so much and that was where their relationship left off so that’s where they return to.

Anakin, now gotten his fill of acknowledgement he can watch it from an objective POV and see how… not great this all is for Obi Wan. At first he tries to subtly (or as subtly as Anakin can do) point out all the ways that Obi Wan has done well (which is probably healthy for him because suddenly he’s seeing a few things in different non-Palpatine-inflicted lights) but eventually I feel like it reaches a yelling match, because this is Anakin and yelling at people is how he communicates when emotionally distressed (both at Qui Gon and Obi Wan - Qui Gon being “why don’t you see how good he is!?” and Obi Wan “why do you keep trying to impress him”)
