Happy New Year,everyone! Ellie here (to some of you I’m Amy) I meant to post this sooner but I ended up making it into a New Years FF instead. This post goes out to old friends, new friends, favorite mutuals, and favorite blogs that I’ve followed for a long time (non-mutual).
This is something I’ve been wondering for a long time. I mean, so the Chancellor is a
Sith? Is that actually a punishable offense? At that point in ROTS, the
Jedi have no actual proof that Palpatine is behind both sides of the
war, and everything he’s done as Chancellor has been approved and
legalized by the Senate.
So, legally speaking, do they actually have any
grounds to even arrest him? Let alone attempt to kill him for resisting
arrest? Or is that the true genius of Palpatine’s plan - that when he
tells the Senate the Jedi attempted to assassinate him and stage a coup
against the government, he’s actually telling the truth?
