Obi-Wan gets a lot of shit about the “Dreams pass in time.” comment but this is not the face of someone who doesn’t care or who is dismissing what Anakin is feeling, as we see over and over that Obi-Wan very much does love Anakin, of course he cares about what Anakin’s going through and wants him to feel better. And we have the foreknowledge of what’s going to come of Anakin’s dreams and the tragedy that happens because of them.
But Obi-Wan doesn’t know any of that.
He just knows that Anakin is lingering on something that is upsetting him and wants to help Anakin get past it, wants to help Anakin regain emotional balance. I have been in that exact place so many times–when someone I care about is hurting, my immediate instinct is to fix it, fix whatever’s wrong so that they feel better and are happy again! I love them and so I want them to not linger on this thing that’s hurting them.
If they’re worrying over nothing, this is good advice, and for all that the characters know, this is nothing, because they’re Jedi, they do have dreams that might seem important, but will pass in time. It’s a tragedy that this isn’t one of those times, it’s a tragedy that Anakin had these dreams and then had to live through what happens later, but this moment wasn’t for lack of care, it was precisely because Obi-Wan does care for Anakin that he’s trying to help soothe what’s bothering Anakin.
Wild Space covers this as well:
Obi-Wan reacts to Anakin’s pain with sorrow and regret, but he won’t let go of Anakin, because he loves him too much for that. And:
“I would have saved her for you if I could.”
JUST LEAVE ME HERE WITH MY FEELINGS ON THE TRAGEDY THAT IS HOW MUCH THEY CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER BUT DON’T ALWAYS KNOW HOW TO CONVEY IT PROPERLY.
Just. Leave me here with my feelings on how guilty Obi-Wan would have felt, how much he would have wished he could have changed things, how of course he would have saved Anakin’s mother for him if he could have, that Anakin belongs with the Jedi, in Obi-Wan’s eyes, but that doesn’t mean he would just let someone die like that, would just let Anakin suffer through that, wouldn’t understand exactly what it’s like to lose a parent and wish that you could change it, even if you still have to get up and keep going and move forward again. OF COURSE HE UNDERSTANDS AND WOULD HAVE SAVED HER FOR ANAKIN.
uH followup to that hat angst comic I did last week?? (see..he’s wearin….The Hat). tbh this exists because I’m a massive baby who can’t draw angst without immediately being like How Can I Fix This
had to chop this thing into two parts bc it was getting way too long, which kinda shoves all the parts I actually like into the next bit..but ah well (I’ll post that later in the week or somethin)
(originally the first three panels were supposed to have Jack’s internal monologue, which revealed that McCree told him he’d seen Reyes in Dorado. McCree likes to fuck with Jack by being like ‘HEY GRAMPS I JUST SEEN THE REAPER DOWN AT JAMBA JUICE,’ but this time Jack realized McCree was being serious when he said ‘I ain’t doin’ this for you, Morrison’)
Yes, you’ve read it right. I am back with another recommendation. I read too many fics this past month. Most of the fics below are BTS (and smut, angst, smut, more smut, and angst). I have been reading yoonmin, taekook, vmin, taegi, jikook fics on AO3 lately so…yeah.
The chaptered fics linked below are the part 1 or chapter 1. You may check their masterlist for the rest of the parts or chapters. Part 2 will be up soon!
Please do tell me if the links aren’t working so I can fix them immediately.
i realized earlier that i completely neglected to draw mullet stan during stanuary and i obviously needed to fix that immediately, so here he is (plus a small cat friend bc who doesn’t want to see stan with a small cat friend)
Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated! This has been so much fun!
Below you will find a bunch of smut. Each author was given a sex position, and has written a one shot around that position with a pairing of their choice. Get your cold shower ready!
If you posted a fic and I somehow missed it, I AM SORRY! Please send me a link and I will fix it immediately. If you haven’t posted yet but want to, make sure you tag me, and I will update this master list as necessary.
in light of many members of the rpc wanting more racial diversity in roleplays, i have compiled a masterlist of, well, poc faceclaim masterlists and directories. they’re sectioned off by type for easier access. if there’s a broken link, please message me immediately and i will have it fixed! if you have a link to a resource that you think would be a good addition to this list, submit it to me! please give this a like or reblog if you’re apart of the rp community only!now, go out there and diversify your rps! enjoy!
A lot of my friends did valentine’s cosplay shoots and I’m like, mad jealous! So I got out of work and immediately sought to fix this issue. Here y'all go, a small set of not-clever pinup engie valentines! Only like, a little bit late. It’s still the 14th here!!!
