because fall out boy is reuniting!!!!!!!

Okay say what you will about TPM, but…this was genuinely heartwarming and cute.

I think it highlights really how adorable and genuine their relationship started out.

I mean yeah I doubt Padme looked at this kid at the time and thought she’d marry him. (no she always thought of him as that sweet little boy and as a friend but cut to 10 years later and she’s like “oh no he’s hot”) But it was a cute moment in their friendship.

Padme is looking all serious and regal and elegant.  But then Anakin just flashes her this little half smile, and then suddenly, we get this unabashedly happy smile from Padme.  It was little moments like that, that reminded me how Padme was really YOUNG in TPM. I always kept forgetting that she was just 14 years old, because she was so mature for her age.  But it was always these little moments she had with her friendship with Anakin that she let down her walls of the big responsible leader, and showed us this youthful innocence.

But another thing about this scene seems…awfully familiar.

I know there were a lot of nods to ANH in TPM.  I mean you have the female political authority figure dressed so regal and beautiful, a huge celebration after a long and tough battle…

But this cute moment is shot for shot very similar…

Just…so adorable these stupid Skywalkers need to stop making me feel things

Like with Padme, growing up I often forgot how young Leia was in ANH.  Because Leia is a leader, she’s strong, smart, independent…and she was 19.

I love how both the boys brought out the hidden youthful innocence and could get such genuine smiles out of them. 

I love how these are both just simple moments from acts of friendship. Highlights a natural connection that formed between two characters.

With Anakin and Padme, it was the connection of two friends that would one day grow to fall in love. With Luke and Leia, it was a reunion-a platonic connection of the two siblings were reunited years after being separated at birth.

Just…agh, I love this stupid family so much. I love Star Wars so much. Don’t look at me.

We did air a lot of dirty laundry. I remember there was a lot of conversation about how not to talk over each other. There were a lot of issues. The good thing was everyone was really into working those issues out. It only worked because we did not get together for four years. People got it out of their system- projects and bands, things we needed to do to grow. Then we were able to get together and have a conversation where there was some fighting and apologising and agreeing and disagreeing, but we were on the same page.
