To say that I crave for your presence right now even though it’s just been 12 hours since you left is an understatement. When I moved out, I presume it’s crazy you actually cried that night and beg for me to come back while chanting my name from time to time. I don’t feel the same way then, for I was the one who went away. And this night, I think I found the reason why; for this was the exact situation where you weep and wish that I was on your side as you dream and go for a tight embrace. It cuts deep to realize I want you back even if it’s impossible right at this juncture for that to occur. So sleep well my love, we’ll adhere to each other again.
How I feel about this character: MY PRECIOUS BABY!!!!!!!!! <3333333 *hugs him* He and Anakin are my all-time favorite characters of SW. I just love his character journey, how he started as a naive teenage boy who dreamed of more and ended as a Jedi Knight FAR GREATER than any of the Old Jedi Order by the simple fact that he did what he considered right. I love how, unlike many people think (cofocfocofocofTVTROPESI’MLOOKINATYOUcofocfocof), he didn’t overcame his darkness because he was incorruptible from the beggining but because he had to fight against it and face it. I love his intense loyalty towards the people he loves and no mention his enormous compassion and unconditional love for Anakin, and how because of that he ended teaching his father, Obi-Wan and Yoda a lesson. I could go all the night talking about how awesome Luke is but if I do that then I could never end this LOL.
All the people I ship romantically with this character: Mmm….even before I “headcanon accepted” Luke as an aromantic asexual I never thought of pairing him with anyone! But…if I have to chose, I would say that I would pair him with Han and Leia (OT3 FTW! :DDD)
My non-romantic OTP for this character: With Anakin. Everyone who has read my posts knows that his bond with his father is my all-time favorite relationship in the saga and that I have very strong feelings about (hehehe). I mostly love them together because in my opinion their bond is the most evident representation of mutual unconditional love in all the series.
My unpopular opinion about this character: I don’t know if this an unpopular opinion but mostly for what I have read in other websites, all I can say is that Luke is NOT like his mother completely and neither he’s “calmer and thoughtful” than Anakin or Leia (which seems to be everyone’s popular opinions). Just watch ANH and ESB. In ROTJ he was more controlled, but it didn’t lasted too long until daddy threatened Leia because he then went all SKYWALKER BERSERKER RAGE mode. That’s why I think his victory over the Dark Side is so powerful. Luke is Luke, who shares most of his traits with his father and sister but also has his own. The end.
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: I wish they could had showed his time between ESB and ROTJ: how he dealed with the truth that Darth Vader was his father and how he went from being horrified to become determined to save his father (well, I headcanon that since Vader continued talking to him telephatically he also may had sensed Anakin there, (ie, his good side, perhaps feeling his father’s remorse?) as well to remember how much he longed for his father as a child and so and so). Also I would like to see his training of how he came to control his recklesness. Overall, ESB-ROTJ Luke is something I really would had liked to see.
my OTP: Anakin (Platonic), Han and Leia (both platonic and romantic. But mostly platonic:))
my cross over ship: I don’t know! I never thought about any crossover ship with him but, platonic-wise, I think that he and Jon Snow may get well along (read a post about that long ago, I thought it was a funny idea LOL)
a headcanon fact: Before Leia, Luke never kissed anyone. Leia was his first kiss :)
