☆ ♥ ☯ Vader
★ - sad headcanon
Qui-Gon did come to see him, as a Force ghost; Vader thought he was a hallucination and mostly ignored him.
♥ - family headcanon
It circumstances had allowed him to meet Leia’s children, Vader actually would have been an ok grandfather, at least in small doses. If nothing else, he would have been a vigilant one, and would have tracked down and killed Snoke before anything could happen to Ben. (This is not to say that Leia didn’t want to do the same, just that she didn’t have decades of experience in black magic.)
☯ - likes/dislikes headcanon
There are very few things that Vader actually likes: what comes to mind most readily is flying. He has some appreciation for lightsaber duels— proper ones, not just cutting down some half-trained padawan two seconds in after they fumble their first parry— and the dominating power of Djem So.
Vader dislikes almost everything about his life, but he especially hates being on Corusant. He’s there as rarely as possible.
