destiny's force

What, so did the Bendu like had tea with Sabine off-screen

I actually liked that the Bendu had a contemplative cameo without becoming directly involved but observing some strange affair from afar with clear curiosity without giving a say or even an advice. It comes to punctuate Kanan looking to familial sources for mentorship guidance rather than from a direct grand Force entity and how Sabine’s destiny is not too Force-related unlike Kanan and Ezra’s destiny.

Luke looks sad, horrified, desperate. WHY? Probably a combination of reasons, many of which fans have already discussed in depth:

  • He recognizes Rey (whether as his daughter, Obi-Wan’s granddaughter, a former student, or simply “no one” who is strong in the Force).
  • He knows Han Solo is dead, killed by Han’s and Leia’s own son, Luke’s nephew.
  • He’s still mourning the loss of his Padawans and is ashamed that he could not stop their destruction.
  • He feels conflicted about joining the war against the Dark side when he couldn’t prevent one teenage boy from destroying the young Jedi in his care.
  • He doesn’t consider himself worthy of training anyone ever again.

OR…

This look could mean Luke senses that Rey already has a teacher, and it’s not him. It’s the one to whom she Force-bonded in that moment that frightened her (Don’t be afraid; I feel it, too). It’s someone Luke once loved, someone he grew to fear, someone he would want to protect Rey from, no matter who she is, yet there is nothing he can do to change what the Force shows him. The balance in the Force will come from the union of Light and Dark.

Rey’s teacher has to be Kylo Ren.

And the reason Rey looks so desperate is because she knows it, too.

It is vain to wish for happiness this year, but essential to work to construct it. Wish for nothing, but accomplish something. Do not wait for a destiny built from start to finish by others, when that destiny is still in our hands. Maintain the force and the lucidity necessary for forging your own well-being and dignity.

Hi! I just wanted to say that your Luke headcanons have been killin' me. The stuff about his speeder and Owen and Beru and worrying about him being like Anakin was so wonderful and heartbreaking. I live for headcanons about how much Owen and Beru loved and worried about Luke. And I think so much about how Luke is THEIR legacy as much as his parents', two relatively ordinary, very good people who did their best with this kid who was maybe always a little too much, a always little uncanny. Yeah.

Thank you, yes, the relationship between Luke & his aunt & his uncle is a fascinating one that fandom has, understandably (given how briefly it is in the films) neglected. Here’s a few more thoughts:

  • you left her Owen spits. His step-brother flinches. He’s Owen’s age, thereabouts, but looks older: something about his eyes, depthless and wild and strangely yellow, like some distant sun is reflecting in them. But he’s younger as well, and reckless with it, and he left her, he left her, and grief twines up Owen’s spine, swallowing up any small thing like sense. (It is not wise to antagonise Anakin Skywalker at any point, and this point least of all. He is grieving. He is furious. Not twenty hours ago he slaughtered an encampment of Sand People, men and women and children alike, and he still smells their blood, raw and burned; and he hears them screaming mercy mercy and – )
  • Owen is a boy bereft as well, remember. Shmi raised him. Grief is a shadow, a veil, and swamps all beneath it; and he crowds Anakin, aching with sadness; if he were Force sensitive he would quail at the howl of Anakin’s fury, the ghosts tangled in his cloak, the screams – but he has all the Force sensitivity of a potato, and so he shows his teeth and spits you left her! you left us! if you had been here –
    • I could have saved her, says Anakin. He’s panting, nostrils flared like a womp rat run to ground. If I were here –
    • But you left!
    • You’re not her son – 
    • Not by blood, no, but more than you were, I was more of a son to her than you –
  • And, just like that, Owen cannot breathe. His fingers fly to his throat. His eyes bug. Unseen claws haul him up to Anakin’s eyes (fevered and yellow and hungry) and his stepbrother (brother – ) snarls, I should kill you and if Owen knew the Jedi and their propensity for reading thoughts, he might have tried to think something that would have convinced Anakin otherwise; tried and failed, for Anakin is sick and tired of being manipulated and just like a dog from the dust he has the taste of blood in his teeth and – 
  • But Owen doesn’t know the ways of the Jedi. He thinks, instead, mother I’m sorry I don’t know who’ll care for father if I die – 
  • The pressure is released. Owen rasps in air. Anakin says, you will stay to care for your father, in this hell-cursed place, you will stay – you don’t know how lucky –  
  • Owen wants very much to break his nose. Instead he says, low and bitter, I know my duty. I know my job. I’ll stay. I was more of a son to her than you. You left her behind –
    • I had no choice – 
    • There is always a choice. 
  • He never sees Anakin again. He is not given to introspection. He doesn’t ponder what could have been. He marries Beru. She is sweet and kind and constant – like his mother. His father dies. And then Ben Kenobi comes to him, a babe in arms, and says that Anakin Skywalker is dead, and here is his son. Beru’s womb is empty, despite their best efforts, and children are always welcome on Tattooine. What’s his name? says Owen. Luke
  • The boy is strange and sharp and always a little too much. Beru says he’s too harsh on the boy, and all Owen can do is take her hands in his and tell her, again, of the one and only time he met Anakin Skywalker. How he could not breathe. How his eyes seared yellow. And how he had snarled: I had no choice. How the Jedi had taken him. There is a choice, he said, and we are making the right one
  • Owen believes in the Force. He fears it, as one should. The Force is the heat and the brush fire and the drought, the burning-brand sun and the sudden flood. It is the whispers from the dunes outside: give me the child, you cannot keep him from me, from his destiny, there is no choice – 
  • He shuts the windows, cranks up the radio, and does not listen to the soft voices outside.

I like how chummy Magneto is with this older couple. He’s got his hands all over that gal!! Meanwhile, Freedom Force makes their first appearance (formerly the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants) and Mystique proves that she has absolutely no class as she attacks Magneto at a Holocaust memorial.

I think this is the thing that annoys me the most about Mystique. She has no respect for social boundaries!!! It doesn’t matter what’s going on, she just barges in and starts making a scene. Like, can’t you wait until they go outside??? Geez people like that are hard to get along with. (Uncanny X-Men #199 – Nov 1985)

Hi, evil anon here. Just wanted to ask who would win in a 1 v 1? The sunshine dorkupine Sora, or the chocobab Prompto. Both in their best gear and at their top base abilities

No one wins. We all lose.

Just kidding. I think Sora would probably come out on top. He gets shot all the time by pirates and gorilla hunters and all it does is annoy him slightly… Sorry, Prom.

Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 87 Review

Hey everyone~ I’m back with a review of chapter 87. So at first I thought this chapter wasn’t anything much, but while I was writing this review, I kept thinking “holy shit!!” haha. So while this chapter may not be as exciting as chapter 86 (or maybe I still have election hangover), Isayama doesn’t fail to deliver shocking content and information, leaving us with clues and cliffhangers to ponder as we wait for the next installment. Read below for a breakdown of the newest chapter.

Single Dads AU (Part 1 of probably many)

So I had the wonderful thought earlier ‘what if the OT4 were all single dads who, by the force of destiny or some shit, happened to stumble across one another at just the right times in their lives.’

Noctis:
A widowed man recently been placed in charge of his fathers business. His late wife, Lady Lunafreya, passed due to a sudden illness, leaving him to care for their only son on his own. Surprisingly, he’s not half bad.

Prompto A+ BEST DAD:
Prompto is the happy father of two twins, working full time at a children’s daycare centre. Though deeply in love at the time, his relationship with his girlfriend ended in kind spirits and the two still see one another as close friends.

I’m currently working on Gladio and Iggy, but I’m gonna take a break now to… play some FFXV, so..
