The Jedi Council whenever something fucked up happens in the Clone Wars and it’s at least partially their fault.

(Yes, I know it’s missing some members. My answer to that is a very heartfelt: “Eh. Close enough.”)

anonymous asked:

i love the way u write jocasta nu she's like jedi professor mcgonagall. i can totally see her saying "have a biscuit, anakin."

Anakin knew better than to cry. It didn’t ever help. It just made his eyes sting, and if the Masters saw him they would be angry. Masters didn’t like to see you cry. It was probably bad for business.

Or…bad for meditation, anyway. Bad for communing with the Force, maybe. Anakin wasn’t really sure. He never seemed to know the right words to say here.

So it was better not to let the issue come up.

Anyway, Master Obi-Wan was busy right now. Maybe he would be angry later, after Master Tiin told him what Anakin had done, but that was later. So Anakin would have some time to prepare himself, to come up with the best possible apology. Masters liked apologies, as long as you got them exactly right. And Master Obi-Wan was much easier to apologize to than Master Tiin. Usually, he just told Anakin to meditate. That wasn’t so bad. He could think about whatever he wanted, and no one would ever know the difference.

So he would apologize to Master Obi-Wan later. If he said just the right thing, maybe Master Obi-Wan would even smooth things over with Master Tiin. He had last week.

The massive entry of the Temple Archives loomed suddenly before him, and Anakin almost forgot about apologies. He stopped and stared up at the towering door. He couldn’t help it. It was huge and ancient and inside there was more knowledge than he’d ever imagined could be in one place. And Master Obi-Wan had said he could go there whenever he had free time. He didn’t even have to ask.

Tano and Kenobi: A Vision to Behold

Previously on Tano and Kenobi…

After finishing one mission on Raxus and falling prey to an pirate ambush in orbit around Florrum, Ahsoka Tano and Obi-Wan Kenobi are faced with a dire situation. If they cannot escape the clutches of the young pirate Hondo Ohnaka, they will be sold at a slave auction on Klatooine in Hutt space. To make matters even worse, they are overcome by a mysterious wave of power and emotions in the Force! Have they just experienced the birth of Anakin Skywalker? And if so, where is he?

First | Previous | Next | AO3


Anakin Skywalker was alive.

Ahsoka’s master was alive.

Did we just… was that his… birth? Ahsoka turned the idea over in her mind, reaching out to touch the Force, which was particularly ebullient and radiant.

Had Obi-Wan and Ahsoka just felt Anakin’s birth through the Force, all the way on the other side of the galaxy?

There was a sudden gust of elation and joy, like a crisp spring breeze laden with the fragrance of blooming maiden’s tears and embercages. It reminded her of the Room of a Thousand Fountains, of the moment when she chose to take the path she now found herself leading Obi-Wan down.

It reminded her of speaking to that strange Presence who had helped her through her first few months back in the past.

Has Anakin been born? Ahsoka sent the nervous, hopeful question into the glittering, effervescent void of the Force.

Yes, the Presence answered with such a calm, firm certainty that Ahsoka could find no room for doubt. Anakin Skywalker is very much alive. And quite hungry.

“Master?” Obi-Wan’s voice broke into Ahsoka’s communion with the Force spirit. “Master, are you alright?”

You had best return to your padawan, Ahsoka. He is prone to anxiety at the smallest provocation if left alone, the Presence cheerfully instructed before fading away. Ahsoka was left with the vaguest impression of a soft chuckle before she opened her eyes and looked down at Obi-Wan, who was scrubbing the tears off his cheeks in a kind of happy confusion.

“Obi-Wan,” Ahsoka exhaled, smiling at him. “You’re okay? I see you managed to unlock your restraints.”

Obi-Wan glanced down at the metal binders, his lips quirked into a half grin. “Yes, I’m not sure how but I was successful, Master. Do you know what that was? Are we in danger?”

“Oh, we’re still in danger,” Ahsoka responded with a soft laugh. “And we’ll talk about what I think that was later when we’re safe back in Republic space.”

Obi-Wan looked disappointed at that, his brows furrowed as he nodded. “Yes, Master. Now is not the most opportune moment.”

I promise, Padawan. It will all make sense one day. Ahsoka reached over to rest her forehead against Obi-Wan’s temple, ruffling his short, soft hair. You trust me, right?

Obi-Wan shyly leaned into Ahsoka’s embrace, curling a hand into the front of her robes and nodded. With my life, Master. It’s just… I have never felt anything like that before. It was so… wonderful. What do you suppose it was?

Maybe your future padawan! Ahsoka teased, the biggest, brightest smile on her face as she and Obi-Wan pulled apart.

I just love Star Wars bc like. U got all these ridiculous made up names that sound like they just scrambled random letters together.

Padme Amidala, Mace Windu, Obi-wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Yoda, Chewbacca, Jyn Erso, Garazeb Orrelios, Kanan Jarrus, Shaak Ti, Kit Fisto, Jango Fett, Boba Fett, Dooku, Pong Krell, Raako Hardeen, Aayla Secura, Asajj Ventress, Hera Syndulla, Leia Organa, Mon Mothma Cassian Andor, Satine Kryze, Bo-katan Kryze, Pre Vizsla, Galen Erso, Plo Koon, Quinlan Vos, Qui-Gon Jinn, Bodhi Rook, Eeth Koth, Barriss Offee, Luminara Unduli, Han Solo, Cham Syndulla, Lando Calrissian, Bail Organa, Jabba the Hutt, Poe Dameron, Phasma, Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, Riyo Chuchi, Lux Bonteri, Saesee Tiin, Adi Gallia, Watto, Cad Bane, Aurra Sing, Zam Wessel, Ketsu Onyo, Sabine Wren, Savage Opress, Jar Jar Binks, Tarpals, Tarful, Bossk, Tarkin, Krennic, Thrawn, Kallus, Saw Gerrara, Steela Gerrara, Gar Saxon, Rook Kast, fucking SNOKE. And that’s just off the top of my head.

Get you a franchise that can do both amirite.

subjectlazarus  asked:

Could you list the pros/cons of the 7 forms of lightsaber combat? You seem very knowledgeable and I'm a pleb in need of help with this stuff for writing a story. If you don't want to that's okay just figured I'd ask. Love your blog :D

Sure thing. I’ll try and keep things concise.

Form I (Shii-Cho) is the most fundamental form of lightsaber combat. It’s the first form that all Jedi learn, and provides a framework for all the other forms to build off of. Focusing primarily on disarmament, Form I has no distinct strengths, but no true weaknesses either. Form I is a good form to fall back onto in a pinch, and can help keep you alive a little bit longer. Kit Fisto was a dedicated master of this form, which is why he managed to stay alive a few moments longer than Saesee Tiin and Agen Kolar against Darth Sidious. Form I is well-suited to engaging a large number of enemies due to its large, sweeping motions, but against a single opponent a Form I user will sometimes have a harder time. 

Form II (Makashi) is a very refined and elegant style, and was developed primarily for duels between two lightsaber users. It is very similar to real-world fencing, and emphasizes clean, quick footwork and thrusting motions. The curved-hilt variation of the standard lightsaber was developed to take advantage of the movements of Form II. Makashi focuses on fluid movement and precision, requiring a great deal of concentration and focus from its user, but this is a double-edged sword: Makashi has almost no ability to generate momentum for attack or defense. Because of this, as well as the fact that Form II’s defenses rely on evasion and footwork, mean that a user of a more strength-based form can easily swat aside Form II’s meager defense and overwhelm a duelist with brute strength. In addition, since it was developed mainly for the purposes of 1-on-1 swordfighting, Form II isn’t great for deflecting blaster bolts. Because of this, Form II saw a decline in use after the New Sith Wars, since it was not considered likely that a Jedi would need to face a lightsaber-wielding opponent.

Form III (Soresu) is the most defensive form of the basic 7. It is well-suited for deflecting blaster fire, though not for directing that fire back towards a specific vector. Soresu emphasizes calm and tranquility in the mind of the Jedi, utilizing tight, often circular motions to create a nearly-unbreakable defense. However, the shortcomings of this are obvious: Form III is almost entirely defensive, and has very little offensive capabilities. It is a form for survival, not victory. If a Form III user cannot escape combat, their goal would be to maintain their defense until their opponent wears themselves down, and then switch to a more aggressive form to finish off.

Form IV (Ataru) is a highly-aggressive form. It emphasizes strong, tight bursts of energy and acrobatic moves, such as jumps and flips. It is well-suited for duelists of short stature, such as Yoda. However, Ataru users tend to wear themselves out fairly quickly, so it isn’t a form that works well over a prolonged period of time. It also isn’t very effective against blaster fire.

Form V is split into two disciplines (Shien and Djem So). Shien is very well-suited for deflecting blaster fire towards a specific vector, whereas Djem So is intended specifically for lightsaber-to-lightsaber combat. Form V is very aggressive and powerful, and because of this emphasis on power, Jedi of short stature, or those without much physical strength, often find themselves unable to make the best use of it.

Form VI (Niman) is a well-balanced and practical form, better-suited for facing down common thugs than a Sith Lord. Often criticized as undemanding, Form VI, is sometimes known as the “diplomat’s form,” as many Jedi Consulars whose personal training does not emphasize lightsaber combat tend to prefer Niman for its practicality and the ease with which one can learn it. Niman is the form most associated with blending Force abilities and bladework, as well as with the use of twin blades. Properly applied, Niman can allow a user engaged with a crowd of opponents to control the group’s movements and defeat assailants one by one. However, even so Niman is not suited to large battlefields such as those of the Clone Wars. A Form VI user can also be defeated with little difficulty by a master of a more aggressive form, such as Form II or Form V.

Form VII (Juyo) is the most aggressive form of lightsaber combat in existence, and in fact began as a Sith style. It is a vicious and brutal form which requires the user to allow themselves to be guided by their passions and emotions under controlled circumstances. Mace Windu developed a variation of Form VII known as Vaapad, which forced the user to effectively skirt the dark side of the Force. For the Jedi, the dangers of this form were obvious, and it was extremely controversial among the Order. Users risked succumbing to the dark side when using Juyo, and for this reason its study was highly restricted by the Council.

Peduli

Kemarin aku kehujanan (lagi), kerana nggak bawa jas hujan. Sempet neduh lama di Perpusat UI sama dua sahabatku dari jam 3 sampe jam 5. Lama juga haha. Akhirnya setelah nunggu dua jam, reda juga. Tapi pas setengah perjalanan deres lagi. Emang dari dulu anaknya kekeuhan, jadi yaudah lanjut aja huhujanan. 

Pas tengah jalan tiba-tiba ada bapak-bapak nyalip sambil berkata, “hati-hati ya neng, licin..” Trus habis bapak itu ada lagi mas-mas boncengan, “mbak hati hati hujan mbak.” Lalu aku agak melongo, dan jawabnya telat pas mereka udah jauh. “Eh iya pak, iya mas..“ 

Pernah juga di lain hari, saat tanpa sadar ban motorku kempes ada bapak-bapak yang mengingatkanku dari belakang setelah sebelumnya memberikan klakson merdu TIIN-TIIN. Sama, waktu hujan-hujan juga dan jalanan lumayan banjir. “Mbak, bannya kempes itu. Hati-hati jalannya." 

Aku akhirnya belok dan minggir, saking deres dan badainya daripada nanti sampe rumah menggigil. Trus baru deh mikir, ternyata orang-orang masih banyak ya yang se-peduli itu. Mau niatnya beneran peduli atau cuma godain (lah wkwk). Tapi serius, peduli itu berharga lho ditengah dunia yang sedang aneh ini. Sebab seimajinasiku nanti mungkin 20-30 tahun lagi saat dunia semakin canggih, manusia (di kota) hanya akan berbicara sendiri tanpa peduli lagi dengan sekitarnya. 

 Aku pun sama, berusaha peduli di jalanan semisal ada ibu-ibu yang roknya berkibar dan khawatir nyangkut, atau yang standarnya masih turun setengah. Pokoknya sesama makhluk sosial harus sama-sama saling peduli ya. Peduli itu memang nggak akan pernah dapet imbalan, tapi (menurutku) itu sangat berharga. Yang bersih, peduli, profesional memang selalu adem, dan insya Allah berkah bermanfaat hehe ea. 

Salam! Edisi Hardiknas & Milad Ponpesqu Husnul Khotimah

Tano and Kenobi: Before the Council

Previously on Tano and Kenobi…

Ahsoka learned that Obi-Wan’s time at the Temple is coming to an end while Obi-Wan volunteers to help Ahsoka get her bearings straight while the Temple is being renovated. After some deep thoughts in the Room of a Thousand Fountains, Ahsoka is summoned before the Jedi Council…

First | Previous | Next


Ahsoka and Obi-Wan stood before the doors of the Council room, frowning at the grey-and-silver accented doors emblazoned with the symbol of the Jedi Order. There had been no symbol on the door when Ahsoka had been a Padawan and she wondered about that, if it had simply faded away or something had happened to cause the Council to replace the doors by her time. She didn’t know why the odd detail struck her as meaningful, but there it was.

“Have you ever stood in front of the Council, Obi-Wan?” Ahsoka asked, looking down at the young initiate.

Obi-Wan frowned and looked down at his hands. “Uhm… Well… not recently?”

Ahsoka almost let out a gasp of shock and dismay when she felt the guilt and shame suffusing the boy through the Force and she held it in. Clearly whatever had brought young Obi-Wan before the Council was an act he regretted and he had no doubt already severely castigated himself for it.

She smiled at him and put a hand on his shoulder. “You know… The last time I stood in front of the Council, my Master was with me. This might be one of the first times I’ve faced the Council by myself.”

Obi-Wan looked up at Ahsoka, his blue eyes round with surprise. “Truly, Master Ahsoka? Even when you received your mission orders?”

Ahsoka chuckled. “That was a bit more discreet than this.”

Wow. Is this how I’m going to spend the rest of my life? Finding clever ways to tell a half truth?

“Knight Tano?” A female Nikto Jedi walked over to the duo, checking her datapad. “And… who are you?”

“This is my escort,” Ahsoka explained, putting a hand on Obi-Wan’s shoulder. “Senior Initiate Obi-Wan Kenobi. He’s helping me reacquaint myself with the Temple layout.”

The Nikto Jedi tilted her head to the side, as if she was trying to decide whether or not she was going to say anything about the young boy’s presence. She checked off something before gesturing to the door. “The Council will see you now. Initiate Kenobi, you can return to your dorms if you do not currently have a class to attend.”

“Yes, Master,” Obi-Wan murmured as the doors started to slide open. “I… I will be attending my saber lessons after lunch, Master Ahsoka. Please comm me if you need me.”

Ahsoka nodded with a smile. “Don’t forget! We’ve got an hour of jar’kai practice today!”

It almost broke Ahsoka’s heart to see the brief flash of Obi-Wan’s excitement and joy before he managed to hide it behind a passable attempt at Master Obi-Wan’s famous Negotiator’s face. She was starting to understand where he had first learned the rules of hiding one’s feelings and she wasn’t sure how she felt about Obi-Wan learning those cold lessons in the bosom of the Jedi Order.

This place was supposed to be their home, the Order was supposed to be their family. This wasn’t how you treated family.

Ahsoka turned to face the doors that had fully opened, straightened her shoulders and held her head high, walking back into the same room she had been dismissed from the Jedi Order in seventeen years ago.

Pictured here are Jedi Masters Adi Gallia and Stass Allie, and Eeth Koth and Agen Kolar.  You might think they bear a certain resemblance to each other - and you would be right!

TPM was filmed in England, whereas AotC was filmed in Australia.  George Lucas intended to re-use the Jedi Council members in AotC but hired new Australian actors to play them (why they couldn’t just fly out the original actors from England is beyond me).

For some Jedi, the ones wearing more substantial makeup like Plo Koon and Saesee Tiin, having a different actor playing the character was fine.  But for Eeth Koth and Adi Gallia, the difference between the actors was much more pronounced. LFL rightly decided they couldn’t try to pass these people off as the same characters and, in a bit of a retcon, created two entirely new characters - Stass Allie and Agen Kolar.  

In some ways, I’ve always regretted that they didn’t use the original actors, since it would have given Adi Gallia (my favorite prequel Jedi!) a much larger role in all three prequels.  But on the other hand, there are now four interesting Jedi characters instead of just two!

anonymous asked:

After Order 66, what did you do with the lightsabers of the dead Jedi?

“Some of the clones kept them, either as trophies or as symbols of an order they believed they should’ve disobeyed. I still have Plagueis, Windu, Fisto, Colar, and Tiin’s sabers personally. I even kept Maul’s original lightsaber and his ‘brother’s’ double bladed weapon.”

multiifariious  asked:

™ Hera (Fuck me up)

        “I’m Hera Syndulla, and I’m just a little bit of a disaster. But I’m cute, so obviously that’s perfectly okay. For one who is as tiny as I am, I’m awfully scrappy, which leads to an awful lot of explaining from my master. I’m also one of the most reckless flyers Master Tiin has ever met, and that’s saying something. I’m also significantly more interesting then Padawan Caleb Dume, and he can ‘fight me’ on that.”

Honestly I don’t get why Mace Windu gets the lion’s share of the blame for Ahsoka when Ki-Adi Mundi and Saesee Tiin were actually much bigger assholes about it than he was.

He said it was actually her great trial because he truly believes that, and simply doesn’t understand why that could be an insensitive thing to say.

The entire situation is a lot more complex than “they just didn’t care about Ahsoka”.

I got some really nice feedback on Wake and Gambit lately, which means I’ve been thinking idly about the Watchtower universe (still on hold, no one get too excited), so here are five things that are (currently) true at the start of the third Ouroboros story.

1. Mace Windu is the Grand Master of the Jedi Order.  It’s unknown whether or not Yoda survived the Purge, but as he hasn’t been accounted for, that’s everyone’s working assumption.

2. Current Council members include: Mace Windu, Plo Koon, Adi Gallia, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Depa Billaba, Kit Fisto, Agen Kolar, Saesee Tiin, Luminara Unduli, K’kruhk, T’ra Saa, and Aayla Secura.

3. Roughly a quarter of all clones in the GAR remained loyal to their Jedi generals.

4. The Jedi Order is currently operating out of a long-abandoned Jedi Temple on an undisclosed planet known only as the Hidden Temple.

5. At the start of the story (or the epilogue of Gambit), there are still several hundred Jedi unaccounted for a year after the Purge, including Shaak Ti, Oppo Rancisis, and Yoda.
