Tano And Kenobi: The Senator From Naboo

Previously on Tano and Kenobi…

Now that she has been re-accepted into the Jedi Order and named a Jedi Knight, Ahsoka Tano has some work to do. Luckily a helpful Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn is there to point her in the right direction. Senior Initiate Obi-Wan Kenobi has some training to make up for and a lesson in jar’kai waiting for him. 

First | Previous | Next | AO3


Jar’kai was amazing.

Exhausting, but amazing!

Obi-Wan could not remember the last time his arms were so tired and sore after just an hour of lightsaber practice. He happily slumped his way back to the Initiate Dormitory, shedding his robes and boots before taking a long shower in the refresher when he got to his room. After an eternity of muscle-relaxing warm water, he got out, changed into a more comfortable set of robes, and headed back out for dinner.

He was so wrapped up in the happy memories of his lesson with Master Ahsoka that Obi-Wan paid little attention to the older Padawans who were whispering about how he didn’t have a master yet.

“I can’t believe he’s still here!”

“I would have left out of shame by now.”

“My master says no one will take him. They say he’s too emotional. That he might go dark.”

“I heard he tried to ask Master Sinube. Can you believe it? How desperate do you have to be to ask that old fart?”

Holding his head high, Obi-Wan nodded pleasantly to his fellow Jedi. He had a wicked retort on his tongue but he stilled it, knowing deep in his heart that Master Ahsoka would not approve. He was going to make her proud, to show her that he was worthy of her teachings and maybe, if he was lucky, being her padawan.

So that meant Obi-Wan would just have to bite his tongue and ignore the cold-hearted nexus he found himself in line with.

“Hey, Obi-Wan!” a voice called out through the dining hall, belonging to a dark-skinned Kiffar with a golden stripe across his nose.

Who was pushing his way through the dinner crowd and making a beeline towards Obi-Wan. “Thanks for saving me a spot in line.”

Obi-Wan rolled his eyes. “I did no such thing, Quinlan. The end of the line is back there behind Padawan Rast.”

“You are such a goody-goody!” Quinlan groaned, wrapping an arm around his friend’s shoulders and then pulling him into a headlock where he could give him some proper encouragement with his knuckles. “You were totally saving a spot for me, right?”

“Gah! Ow! Quin! That hurts!” Obi-Wan protested, smacking at his friend’s arm for release before he would have to employ more aggressive measures. “Let me go, you odiferous gundark!”

“Odiferous?” Quinlan laughed, releasing Obi-Wan with a flourish and a firm place in line behind his friend as they shuffled forward to dinner. “I will have you know I took a bath yesterday.”

Obi-Wan gently touched the top of his head and winced. “I know. I can smell.”

“So what’s this I hear about there being a new knight in the Temple?” Quinlan asked, his eyes bright with curiosity and his smile lean and curious. “Master says she’s a Togruta that grew up on the Outer Rim? And her master passed into the Force a while ago.”

The surrounding padawans seemed to inch closer to Obi-Wan and Quinlan, their arch commentaries on Obi-Wan’s presence and Quinlan’s boisterous nature forgotten in the face of news and gossip. Highly observant for an initiate, Obi-Wan chewed on his lip as he carefully thought of what to say that would sate Quin’s voracious curiosity but wouldn’t give too much away about Master Ahsoka. He felt very protective of Ahsoka and didn’t want idle gossip to cause her the kind of trouble it had caused Obi-Wan.

“Knight Tano has recently returned from an extended mission in the field,” Obi-Wan finally concluded, thanking the serving droid as he took his tray and stepped away from the food line, Quinlan right on his heels. “She’s been having trouble finding her way with the renovations and I have offered to assist her around the Temple.”

“Tano?” Quinlan echoed, flopping down opposite Obi-Wan at one of the long tables the initiates and padawans sat at. “I don’t remember a knight by that name. What does she do?”

Obi-Wan frowned off to the side, trying to stay silent.

Quinlan narrowed his eyes, his grin growing wider. “You know what she was doing, don’t you! Tell me! C’mon, Obi-Waaaaan! I swear to Yoda I won’t tell a soul!”

Shaking his head, Obi-Wan folded his arms over his chest and continued his mulish silence.

“Obi-Wan!” the Kiffar pleaded, holding up his dessert, hoping it would loosen his friend’s tongue. “I’ll give you my chocolate sponge cake!”

“No!” Obi-Wan refused, shaking his head. “I can’t. I don’t have authorization to tell you.”

“Authorization?” Quinlan gaped, his excitement growing by the minute as he was starting to imagine Knight Tano taking on whole squadrons of pirates over the misty rings of an exotic Outer Rim planet. “Is she a Shadow? Master didn’t say anything about her being a Shadow!”

“Quinlan!” Obi-Wan hissed, leaning under the table to give his friend a good kick in the shins. “Shut your karking mouth before somebody hears you!”

“Language, Initiate,” a low voice rumbled into the two boys squabble and they both turned their faces skyward to see the tall, imposing presence of Master Qui-Gon Jinn standing over them. His face was impassive, neither a smile nor a frown on his lips and his eyes seemed to see beyond them, as if they were not there. “Brother Jedi do not squabble over petty gossip. You would do well to set a proper example for your friend, Padawan Vos.”

And with that bit of wisdom imparted, Master Jinn moved out of the dining hall and into the shadowed archway that led back into the Temple.

Obi-Wan let out a heavy sigh and turned his eyes back to his food as Quinlan let out a snort once he was absolutely certain the mountain of a master was out of earshot. He proceeded to sit up straighter and sniffed in a poor imitation of Master Jinn, “You would do well to be more of a stick in the mud like Luminara, Obi-Wan. She never has any fun and all the masters love her.”

Rolling his eyes, Obi-Wan tucked into his dinner. “Shut up, Quin. I don’t want to get chewed out by two masters tonight.”

Deciding that his empty stomach could hold out no longer, Quinlan followed Obi-Wan’s suggestion and the two boys began to eat in relative silence.

Quinlan didn’t notice Obi-Wan turning around to gaze out at the doorway Master Jinn departed through. I know Master Ahsoka thinks Master Jinn might be a good master for me but… I don’t know. I don’t think any Padawan could ever make him happy.

Obi-Wan bit into his chocolate sponge cake and sighed. Definitely not me.

PART 17 of Luke and Vader Save the Galaxy by Time Traveling to the Clone Wars

Just when you thought this was done …

–Luke releases his father’s ashes over the Corellian Run hyperspace lane. He watches the fine grey dust float out into space.

–Fives, Hardcase, and Chatterbox won’t let him be alone. It is very obvious they have set up a rotating watch over him, even if it is from their own medical beds to start with, but since Luke is in his own bed the med center on the Pioneer for the first few days, it is effective.  They try and distract him. Hardcase pulls out a sabbacc deck (since his initial plan to get Luke drunk was banned by the medics on duty) and Luke is reminded of Han teaching him to cheat. Chatterbox turns on a holoscreen and they watch the Boonta Eve Classic together and all he can think about is Vader’s plans to kill Jabba and free Tatooine.  Fives who is bed bound as his spine heals has Echo scrounge up whatever reading materials he could find on the ship (some really cheesy romantic holodrama tie in) and proceeds to read it aloud over the groaning and laughter of all who are resting and recuperating in the med ward. All Luke can think about is that he remembers a similar book hidden amid Leia’s few belongings on Hoth.

When they finally let Luke out of the med ward, he wanders up to the bridge. Luke has the Datapad of Disasters his Father put together and the plans for killing Jabba. He should just pick a cause and rush off to the rescue, bury himself in work and try and forget.

Instead, he wanders around the ship, meets with troopers, and spends a few hours with the Hack Squad who have saved the galaxy as far as Luke is concerned. He finds most of them playing holonet shoot ‘em up games based on the Old Republic days against kids and teens all over the galaxy. Mal and Uni are busy on the holomedia websites flooding them with anti-Sidious memes base on old holocaps of Palpatine and his underlings, pro-Reconstruction information, and clone brother humor. Luke joins them for a few rounds of the game but holo battle is too easy and they trounce all the other teams. He finally finds a empty office away from his students’ watchful eyes and starts checking his comm for messages.

There are some short ones from Ventress, as she describes life as the de facto spokesperson of the freed battle droids and her position in the Separatist Assembly. (“They have all decided they want names because if clones have names instead of numbers they want names too. They have all decided on the Same. Karking. NAME! ALL. OF. THEM. WANT. TO. BE. CALLED. ROGER! I CAN’T EVEN SABER THEM ANYMORE! THEY THINK I’M THEIR KRIFFING FRIEND!”) There are messages from the clone medics giving him updates on their efforts to help the clones out in the field, and which Jedi were injured or killed before the chipped troopers could be stopped.

There are messages from a Barriss Offee who most formally introduces herself and then proceeds to provide some of the most detailed reports he has ever read and he has received reports from Echo. There are messages from Commanders of Battalions he has never met, thanking him, and asking him what to do with Admirals that have proven to be in league with Sidious. He reads messages from troopers who injured Jedi under influence of the chips or worse, caused death of their commanders, angry and sorrowful and broken. There is a message of condolence from Duchess Satine that is almost too painful to read and she tells him he is welcome on Mandalore any time which is quite the offer because of her pacifist beliefs. Luke spends hours sorting through all the messages and answering what he can.

And then there is the comm from 99 which tells of the first brothers born into freedom, of the little cadets learning and exploring on new worlds, of older brothers choosing to become troopers and join the GAR and those brothers exploring other careers, other livelihoods. He shares tales of troopers coming Home for the first time, having homes and families to come back to. He shares stories of Naming. There are so many more Names now.  He talks about their plans to set up Home Bases on more worlds and how he is working to find an uninhabited planet to be their planet. And then 99 tells him about Alderaan, the mountains and the lakes and asks if Luke will join them all for the Summer Moon Festival.

Luke takes a deep breath and comms the bridge telling them to set course for Alderaan.  

- At long, long last Anakin finds his words and starts speaking again. Kix told them all it would take time and not to press. Anakin wouldn’t be the first Kix had seen go mute during this war. But despite these reassurances, Obi-Wan grows more and more concerned as the weeks pass with no change. Finally, one evening they hear him haltingly sing a lullaby to the twins, the sound drifting and reaching them in the other room. Obi-Wan, Padme, and Ahsoka all go limp with relief. Anakin will be all right.

–Hot summer evenings on Alderaan don’t even approach a cool day on Tatooine, but he can smell the flowers that remind him of that tiny bottle of perfume Leia kept but never used. Luke is standing a bit apart from crowds of people young and old, clone and not, watching the fireworks on the shore of one of Alderaan’s numerous lakes. He is so entranced by the sight that for a moment he doesn’t notice the ripple in the Force, but out of the corner of his eye he sees a shadow of glimmering blue. He turns and there is his Father as Luke has never seen him before. His Father’s eyes are cast skyward peering out from under his hood, and then they turn to meet his, blue on blue. His Father smiles at him carefully, almost shyly, and Luke can only grin back. There is another explosion of light above them, The instant Luke looks away, his Father’s ghost vanishes, but Luke is sure that his father is just out of sight, hovering nearby, watchful as always. His name is called by a few of the young clone cadets and Luke walks forward to join the clone brothers waving sparklers in the air.

–It is nearly six months After (and from now on, Anakin expects he will divide his life into Before and After the twins were born and Sidious died) that Anakin learns that a major operation is being planned with volunteers from the 501st and the 212th and many of the Force sensitive clones. He is hesitant to leave his family and is unaccountably nervous about returning to any sort of combat, but this is not the Clone Wars and Outer Rim Sieges. Rumor has it this is an anti-slavery offensive. Obi-Wan is on Mandalore, but Ahsoka is here and at her and Padme’s urging he joins with Rex and a few other brothers heading back into action. As they travel, Jesse ask after his family and he proudly shows them all a few (just a few!) holos of his children. The men bear his enthusiasm with good grace as they have stories of their own little ones running and crawling around back at “Home Bases” on several planets, growing and maturing slowly.

Anakin is stunned to find out the offensive’s objective is Tatooine and leading the fight is Luke. The men greet him like a brother in arms but Luke is quick to show him the plans and defer to him and the more senior clones. Anakin reviews the detailed campaign starting at Jabba’s Palace and then moving to the smaller communities before hitting the towns. He learns that undercover operatives have already been working with the local Underground to prepare the people to aid in the liberation of the planet from the Hutts.

“Impressive,” Anakin can only say, amazed that his life has come to this, to the battle to free Tatooine at long last. He had given up on it ever happening, a dream un-befitting a Jedi of the Order. Anakin wonders to himself who’s plan this was and who cared enough to bother with Tatooine. “Your plan?” he asks Luke.

“My Father’s,” Luke corrects with a funny half smile. “We were planning to go before …” he shrugs, trailing off.

Captain Rex casts a quick eye over the plans and nods. “Vader always had an eye for maximum damage. He couldn’t pick a more deserving target from what I hear.”  He then catches something and zooms in on the planned assault for Jabba’s Palace. “I don’t recall this part of the plan,” he said pointedly to Luke.

Innocently, Luke denies any knowledge of what Rex is talking about and he has Anakin nearly fooled until Hardcase starts snickering. Fives leans forward and then groans when he sees what Rex is talking about. “Sir, you aren’t seriously planning–“

Rex cuts him off. “There is no way in hell I am letting you lead the charge on Jabba’s Throne Room and confront the Hutt one on one. I was there when you two were planning this. Vader was very clear you weren’t to be directly involved. I can’t let you do this,” he says to Luke. “Your Father will kill me.”

“My Father’s dead,” Luke reminds him crossing his arms over his chest.

“That isn’t likely to stop him!” the Captain retorts hotly. Anakin looks around and sees most of the clones nodding in agreement. He was kind of regretting not meeting the one Sith he was considering taking off his “Kill Sith” rule, he actually sounded like someone Anakin would have enjoyed meeting.

“Captain,” Luke begins and then his tone softens. “Rex, let me do this. I’m ready.”

Rex’s usual stoic face goes through a serious of contortions before he agrees, but insists that Luke have Fives and Chatterbox as back up the entire time while Hardcase is planting explosives with the rest of the squad.

“Is there room for one more on this assault?” Anakin asks after the Captain rattles off assignments.

“Of course, sir,” Rex says, “You’re with me.”

Calyss Watches the Clone Wars - 17

This episode is 01x15 - Trespass (20CO) and I thought I had something to say  about the patronizing sentence at the beginning but turns out I was totally wrong about its meaning so let’s not talk about it.

LOOK AT THEM

Chairman Cho: “This wasteland belongs to us.”

Is there something valuable on that planet (like a mineral or a source of energy) ‘cause who the fuck would go to such length to claim a frozen wasteland?

She’s pretty.

And she has wifi.

Well this is ominous.

I think they angered the Old Gods.
Or some Big Foot.

Anakin: “I found some large footprints.”

I like it when the stupid things I say are validated by the show.

Senator Chuchi looks sad :(
And Chairman Cho is an asshole. Don’t talk to her like that you dumbfuck.

Look at dem fluffy four eyes.
Well the thing thy have for mouth is disgusting but THEY’RE FLUFFY. And they draw. And give hugs.
More importantly they give a hug to Obi-Wan wich is good. Obi-Wan deserves all the hugs.

Did Obi-Wan just named them?
“Look, they’re tall. Let’s call them the Talz. Yes. Good. I have the best ideas. Ten points to Obi-Wan.”

OH MY GODS SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH CHO WHY DO YOU EVEN WANT THE FROZEN WASTELAND IN THE FIRST PLACE???
Also Chuchi calls him “your majesty” which is weird cause chairmen are not supposed to be royalty??? Well, I guess it can work because king generally sit on a chair and majesty can just mean that you’re majestuous.
¯\(°_o)/¯
*sigh* let’s just blame it on this story happening long ago and far away when and where english is not a thing.

lmao dude is just expecting the troopers to obey him. if you wanna attack someone you gotta bring your own troops, Cho.

Cho: “Troopers, mount up and follow me.”
Rex, I think?: "What’s up, general?”
Anakin: “You’re gonna stay with the chairman until we can work things out. Protect him at all costs.”
Well anyway, let’s say it’s Rex: “Mount up! We’re moving out!”

1) Well it seems like the Chairman has actually some kind of authority over the troopers. Does it means he’s somewhere in the Grand Army of the Republic’s hierarchy? Or are those troups allotted to him as too protect his people? Does he not have his own army? I mean earlier he was talking about his experience and all and it would be weird for him to be as arrogant if all his military accomplishment were actually the Republic’s.
2) Why would you order for him to be protected at all cost? it’s super dumb. He’s the only one who wants to fight. Let the Talz kill him and make peace with them.

Anakin: “Senator, you know a preemptive strike is illegal. Isn’t there anything you can do to stop him?”
Chuchi: “I’m afraid not. He has proclaimed this conflict an internal affair.”

Well if it’s an internal affair, what about he settles it with his own troops, hum???

Oh look he actually took men with him!

How the Glorious Pantoran Army was reduced by half in an epic battle against the Fluffy Talz.

DID CHO JUST GOT SPEARED WHILE I WAS LOOKING AT MY DRAWING??? LET ME REWIND THIS.

YES HE DID

bye, sucker, you won’t be missed.

Look I’m all for epic battles and all but here it was just some asshole who decided that an actually useless planet was his and that the locals had to die… I was gonna say totally unprovoked but they actually did kill troopers in the first place. Probably cause they couldn’t understand each other and one party was more afraid than the other and threw the first stone. They didn’t attack just for kicks.
So it was actually super satisfying seeing them make peace.
Good job Chuchi.


This is so wrong I did this too early in the evening usually when I finish it’s like, 1 am but now it’s only 10 and I don’t know what to do.
