something that always struck me as odd about the prequels is how palpatine was able to forge a relationship with anakin in the first place.
this is definitely my biggest problem with the jedi, in relation to anakin: they let palpatine, a middle aged man, get anakin, a child, alone. the fact that palpatine’s even insistent on it at all should be ringing alarm bells. there should be Stranger Danger warnings going off, people! you’re dropping the ball, men!
and i understand that, according to the comics, palpatine threw his political weight around, saying that the senate has total control over the jedi. that you can’t deny the chancellor. but that’s incorrect - the republic is corrupt, but it’s not a dictatorship yet. as anakin’s legal guardians, the council has the full right to refuse palpatine access to anakin - it doesn’t matter who’s knocking at your door, you’re supposed to protect your charge.
but the jedi handed him over. the second palpatine pressed, they folded; and no one tried to curb anakin’s interaction with palpatine, even though it should be clear that an old man wanting to talk with a minor day after day after day is suspicious. especially since the jedi were suspicious of palpatine anyway.

Lapis: “Why don’t you try one thing at a time?” …“We can try it together!”
Peridot:“Uh, Amethyst? I, uh, try not to use the J-word so loosely around here.”
Peridot:“Hey Lapis, are you okay?”…“Are you sure?”…“I’m leaving, but I’ll be back”…“Do you need anything?”
Amethyst:“Oh, hey! You guys wanna be prisoners too?”
💙 💚 “Beta” & “Back To The Moon” 💚
Peridot and Lapis are so supportive of each other in these two episodes.
Lapis offers to help Peridot to play her musical instruments when her “one Gem band” goes completely wrong in Beta, and puts a supportive hand on her shoulder as she’s talking to her.
Peridot also stops to check, repeatedly, if Lapis is OK before leaving the barn in Beta, as well as reassuring Lapis that she’ll be coming back and checking if Lapis needs anything from her before she leaves.
Peridot is acutely aware of the things that might upset Lapis - mentioning “Jasper” and “prisoners”, in the cases shown above - and is clearly extremely protective of her and wants to make sure that she stays happy and comfortable. She asks Amethyst to stop mentioning Jasper in Beta and then chooses to stay with Lapis in Back To The Moon (after holding onto Lapis’ arm in support when Amethyst mentions being “prisoners”), rather than joining the other Crystal Gems on their journey to the moon base.
Summary: It’s a normal night in the Dan and Phil household, and Dan plans on going out to get some groceries, and Phil stays home.

“Spaghetti for you,” The waiter said as he placed Nate’s food in front of him. “and a pasta bologna for the pretty lady right here.” He placed my bowl in front of me and quickly winked at me.
I friendly smiled at the waiter and started drooling as soon as I saw my food. I was obsessed with Italian, though.
Nate didn’t say a lot through the entire dinner. I would tell overly exciting things and he would chuckle or say nothing at all. Was this guy on his period or something?
“Do you guys need anything?” The male waiter asked.
“Nope.” Nate quickly said.
“Okay, tell me-”
“Sure.” He interrupted him again. The waiter gave us uneasy looks and left again. I softly kicked Nate’s leg.
“What the hell is your problem?” I semi-whispered.
“Nothing.” He covered up.
“What did the guy do to you?!” Nate clenched his jaw and continued eating. I sighed and did the same.
I was so fed up with his shit.
Until I realized. God, I’m so stupid. Nathan Montgomery Maloley was actually jealous! “Oh my God,” I said, getting Nate’s attention. “you’re jealous!”
“At that fuck boy? Hell no.” He said rolling his eyes.
“You are! Give me one other reason to be angry!”
He stayed silent and drank from his coke. “Hello?” I said to Nate, trying to get his attention.
He ignored me and we finished our food. The waiter noticed it and cleaned up our plates. “Did you two enjoy your dinner?” He politely asked.
“Lots! Thank you.” I smiled at him. He returned a smile as I felt a kick against me leg. “So how’s life as a waiter?” I asked him interestedly. Well not really interested, but I was trying to test out Nate for a bit.
“Uh, it’s good. Lovely colleagues and lovely customers.” He smiled at me while leaning over to grab my plate.
I picked it up and helped him a little. “Thank you.” He said.
“Anytime.” I responded. I looked over at Nate and saw he kept clenching his jaw over and over again.
“Can I offer you both a dessert?” He asked.
“No. We have to go. Keep the change.” Nate said as threw a 50 dollar bill and slurred me out of the restaurant.
We walked over to the car and I felt Nate’s hand on my ass the entire time. Harshly squeezing it. “Cut the crap.” I said whispering. It was a long walk.
As I said that he squeezed even harder. “Nate.” I said steady.
“Shut up before I’ll fuck you numb against this wall.” I widened my eyes and stayed silent.
I don’t know what got to him, but I was so digging it.
We finally got to the car. He pushed me against the door, kissing me hungrily. I immediately kissed him back, wanting more.
Nate unlocked the door and threw me in the backseat. He got into the car right away and loosened his belt. “I don’t like car sex.” I admitted.
“And I don’t like when you flirt with stupid dicks. Guess we both won’t get what we want, huh?” He said before ripping my panties off.
