*atoc

One of my son’s favorite things in all of Star Wars is during the meadow scene in Attack of the Clones. He thinks Anakin pranking Padme into thinking he’s hurt and then laughing when she comes to check on him is THE FUNNIEST THING A+ GAME SKYWALKER; ANAKIN IS AMAZING WOW HE’S SO FUNNY. Every single time he watches it he’s like “HE GOT HER! Hahahahahaha”

So, Anakin basically has the same sense of humor as a small child. Sounds…pretty much exactly correct. LOL

the best part of atoc is when obi-wan is in padme’s bedroom and he sees the killer robot and he just fucking jumps out of the window and decks the thing

From Star Wars: Attack of the Clones novel

↳ written by: R.A. Salvatore

   Padmé sat at her vanity, brushing her thick brown hair, staring into the mirror but not really seeing anything there. Her thoughts were replaying again and again the image of Anakin, the look he had given her. She heard his words again, “…grown more beautiful,” and though Padmé was undeniably that, those were not words she was used to hearing. Since she had been a young girl, Padmé had been involved in politics, quickly rising to powerful and influential positions. Most of the men she had come into contact with had been more concerned with what she could bring to them in practical term than with her beauty, or, for that matter, with any true personal feelings for her. As Queen of Naboo and now as Senator, Padmé was well aware that she was attractive to men in ways deeper than physical attraction, in ways deeper than any emotional bond.

   Or perhaps not deeper than the latter, she told herself, for she could not deny the intensity in Anakin’s eyes as he had looked at her. 

  But what did it mean?

  She saw him again, in her thoughts. And clearly. Her mental eye roamed over his lean and strong frame, over his face, tight with the intensity that she had always admired, and yet with eyes sparkling with joy, with mischief, with…

   With longing?

   That thought stopped the Senator. Her hands slipped down to her sides, and she sat there, staring at herself, judging her own appearance as Anakin might.

  After a few long moments, Padmé shook her head, telling herself that it was crazy. Anakin was a Jedi now. That was their dedication and their oath, and those things, above all else, were things Padmé Amidala admired.

   How could he even look at her in such a manner?

   So it was all her imagination.

   Or was it her fantasy?

   Laughing at herself, Padmé lifted her brush to her hair again, but she paused before she had even begun. She was wearing a silky white nightgown, and there were, after all, security cams in her room. Those cams had never really bothered her, since she had always look at them clinically. Security cams, with guards watching her every move, were a fact of her existence, and so she had learned to go about her daily routines, even the private ones, without a second thought to the intrusive eyes. 

   But now she realized that a certain young Jedi might be on the other end of those lenses.

Like your lovely Lucy says: Padmé deserved better. She deserved so much better. Every time I think of how her character was handled in the Anidala romance in ATOC I get mad and when I think about her just dying of a broken heart I get mad. LIKE NO SHE WOULD HAVE LIVED FOR HER CHILDREN AND/OR KICKED ANAKIN'S ASS

Hell yeAH SHE WOULD HAVE LIVED FOR LUKE AND LEIA!! And she still saw light on Anakin, as totally gone as it might have been at that point. She still loved him and believed he loved her. (Boy fell hard, yeah he redeemed eventually, but he did TERRIBLE things in the meantime)

Lucy: Broken heart my ass, Padmé was a fighter the entire trilogy. Even if it wasn’t always the same kind of fighting the others did, she knew her priorities. She knew that her politics and people came before Anakin. Even if she was heartbroken she would have still lived for the love of her children and people. (S-she’s talking really fast I’m having a hard time writing it all) Padmé was killed by Palpatine using her as a g-d damned battery for Anakin. They should have made that more clear and evident. The claim that she died heartbroken was a stretch and anyone who knew her character could see that. You would think that someone, ANYONE, hell even Obi-wan would have looked into her death at least a little more.
