i’m 100% herder of nerfs

The sheer, utter innocence about this moment, though.

I’ve heard film critics say: “It wasn’t dramatic enough!” But, you know, I think it was.

Neither one has any clue how much they are going to absolutely destroy one another and just how nasty things are going to get. They’re both so young, naive and nice here. 

A cute, friendly little handshake. That’s how it started. 

The horror hasn’t hit them yet. And the viewer knows it hasn’t. We know more than they do. 

That funny, sly little smile Obi Wan gives to Vader in A New Hope before he lets Vader kill him might tell the whole story about the Obi Wan character.

“I didn’t give in to evil. Not now. Not ever. And you only win now because I let you win.”

*Then Vader ends up confusedly kicking some empty clothes around, like it’s laundry day, and wondering what the hell happened. He is so utterly perplexed and unsatisfied.*

Master vs. Student. But Obi Wan always owned Anakin’s ass at the end, didn’t he?
