A New Strategy

Anakin’s Force Ghost: [appearing in front of Kylo Ren] 
Kylo: Wh – grandfa– it’s – 
Anakin: WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?! HMM? Do you know what this has done to me? And your uncle? [getting in his face] AND YOUR MOTHER?! And then there’s what you did to – 
Kylo: …what? [sizes Anakin up] Oh, I see. So you’ve become a traitor in your afterlife. How…disappointing. I guess I really will have to finish what you started. 
Anakin: [stammering, furious] Tra-TRAITOR?! ME? [rolls up sleeves] OK, that’s it, I know I SAID I was done kicking people’s asses but this is – 
Obi-Wan: [holding up a hand] Perhaps I can be of assistance here. [to Kylo] May we talk? Ben to, uh, Ben?
Anakin: Obi-Wan please, we’ve been through this, you’re not going to be able to convince him to – 
Kylo: [smirking] Well well well, look who’s here. Grandpa brought his Jedi boyfriend.
Obi-Wan: I just wanted to say that I think…I think you should stay on the Dark Side, really.
Anakin: WHAT?!
Obi-Wan: Now hear me out, Anakin: it’s not like the young man has many people who even especially want him back on the light side, really, save for his mother perhaps. His uncle’s mostly given up on the Jedi…
Kylo: Pfft
Obi-Wan: …and I’m sure he has plenty of close friends here in the First Order who’d fight to keep him here, making our job that much harder. 
[Hux walks by, smacks Kylo in the head with a notebook]
Hux: [over his shoulder] Fuck you, Ren! 
Kylo: [rolls eyes] Whatever
Obi-Wan: …and it’s not like you or I want to talk to him, Anakin, so really, we may as well just give up – this is the best path for all concerned. [speaking deliberately] Really, if he showed up on the light side again I’d be furious at this point, given all he’s done. It would be far too much work for me. 
Kylo: [warily] Oh, really? You’d be furious. 
Obi-Wan: Yes. It would be awful to have to deal with rehabilitating yet another Skywalker. I, Obi-Wan Kenobi, absolutely do not think you should turn back to the Light Side. In fact, as a Jedi Master I…forbid you from turning back to the Light Side. 
Anakin: [pulling Obi-Wan aside, whispering harshly] Obi-Wan what in the absolute Sith hells are you do – 
Kylo: [sarcastic laugh] You think…you think YOU can tell ME what to do, old man? I don’t have to listen to you! If I wanna wear this cool black cape, I will! If I wanna give myself a badass Darksider name, then I will! And if I wanna go back to the light side, well, then you’ll just have to live with that too, Kenobi. 
Anakin: [jaw drops]
Obi-Wan: [mildly] Well I am only a ghost now, so I suppose I would have to accept it, even though it would be terribly insubordinate of you and I would be very upset indeed. 
Kylo: [grabbing his stuff] I’ll show you, Kenobi. I’ll SHOW YOU. You’re not in charge of me! [to Anakin] Let’s go find my mom. 
Anakin: [agape] I…
Obi-Wan: [cracks knuckles] Very well then. [sotto voce] Should have tried that one sooner. 

(You know that Kylo probably figures out that he’s been had halfway back to Leia’s place, but they came so close to pulling it off. Kenobi’s just going to have to be slightly more subtle next time.) ;) 

ngl I am low-key worried about Rogue One, but only because my boy Darth Vader is in it, and idk what incarnation of Vader they are going to use.

Filoni!Vader: yEAHHHHHHH!!! i am PUMPED to be on the DARK SIDE man I LOVE KILLING REBELS! *flies a tie-fighter with the Force so his cape can billow while he stands menacingly under a spotlight* I’m angry all of the time and I’m like OBSESSED with killing Obi-Wan! *chugs a Red Bull through his vents* WHO WANTS TO GO NEXT?

Lucas!Vader: high-key wanna die if any of you rebels could do that for me i’d appreciate it. *slaughters thousands of rebels effortlessly* come on man did you even try. damn this self-preservation instinct of mine. *sees obi-wan* HELL YEAH I’M GONNA DIE I CAN’T WAIT! *kills obi-wan in one swing* what.

Comics!Vader: *doesn’t say anything, but if he does it’s going to be one badass line like “ALL I’M SURROUNDED BY IS FEAR AND DEAD MEN”* *has a lot of flashbacks to the time when he had hair* *is sad a lot* *surrounded by quirky fun characters because this is anakin skywalker we are talking about*

  • Obi-Wan: Anakin did what?
  • Vokara Che: I wouldn't let him see Ahsoka since she is still resting from her injuries. I told him that unless he was injured he was not allowed to stay, so he punched himself in the face and told me that he was injured.
  • Obi-Wan: Well, you have to admire his...dedication.
These New Jedi Don’t Know Anything

Force Ghost Anakin: [sprawled out across Obi-Wan’s lap, half asleep, watching a blaringly-loud soap opera] Oh man, those two are so hooking up this week.
Force Ghost Obi-Wan: [sitting on Luke’s sofa, petting Anakin’s hair, wearing reading glasses and not looking up from reading a book called Betrayal: True Stories of Fallen Apprentices] Uh huh. 
Force Ghost Yoda: [floating on a nearby throw pillow, knitting] Liked the second season better, I did. 
Anakin: Yeah, it’s kind of jumped the shark, but I still have to see what happens with my OTP. 
Luke: [meditating, cracking one eye open] Guys, can you keep it down? I’m trying to commune with the Force. 
Anakin: We are the Force. 
Luke: No, dad, I mean the – [stops, looks around] 
[everyone snaps to attention] 
Obi-Wan: [removing his glasses] What was that?
Luke: [closing his eyes again] I…I think someone’s coming. A girl! 
Yoda: A new Jedi, you think?
Luke: Yeah…whoever it is, they definitely have the Force with them. 
Anakin: Well…go out there! Introduce yourself!
Luke: Should I…should I do something?
Obi-Wan: Are there any cliffs with good lighting you could stand on?
Anakin: [peering out the window] What’s the wind situation like out there?
Yoda: A robe, he needs, for drama. 
Obi-Wan: [putting one on Luke] Yes, it would never do to go out there without one…
Anakin: So what’s your plan, son?
Luke: Uh…say “hello, my name is Luke”?
[Anakin, Obi-Wan and Yoda look at each other uneasily] 
Obi-Wan: [dismayed] …”hello, my name is Luke”?
Luke: Well, I should greet her, right? I mean, what are you guys suggesting? I just put a hooded cape on and stand outside silently in the wind like a weirdo? And then, what? Dramatically un-hood myself while my hair blows around while remaining totally wordless? Heh…that…that would be…
[The Force Ghosts side-eye him]
Luke: O-OK, you guys know best. [puts his hood on] Well, wish me luck. [he goes outside to meet Rey] 
Obi-Wan: [annoyed] You see what happens when I’m not allowed to train someone until they’re an adult? Those are basic Jedi presentation skills! 
Yoda: A shame, it is. 
Anakin: [nodding solemnly] Really. I love the kid, but that is disappointing.

From what I’ve seen a lot of the hate Kylo Ren gets comes from nostalgia. The most common response against a redemption arc for him is, “He killed Han Solo” so he doesn’t deserve redemption and should die a horrible death. (And yes, I know he’s done horrible things, I’m not denying any of that.) But mostly, this argument comes from people who loved Han’s character and cannot forgive Kylo for killing him.

Then there’s Han and Leia as parents to a kid named Ben. This kid later turns to the dark side and into Kylo Ren who is the living evidence that Han and Leia weren’t a perfect couple. They had problems, they fought, their lifestyles didn’t match up, and they separated. So yeah, for some I think Kylo Ren wrecked that perfect idea some had about Han and Leia.

I mean, they got separated after they sent Ben to train with Luke. “That’s when I lost you both.” Is what Leia tells Han to which he replies, “We both had to deal with it in our own way.” They both went back to what they were good at and put distance between each other. So, I think some people blame him for Han and Leia’s separation.

Han actually says in the movie, “There’s too much Vader in him.” Han was uncomfortable around his child, because of his power. Something his kid probably sensed. When he says, “If Luke couldn’t reach him, how could I?” it speaks of how disconnected he felt to his own son. No matter how much he loved him he probably couldn’t understand him. When Kylo Ren tells Rey “He would have disappointed you.” It speaks of how he was disappointed in him as a father figure (Considering before, the thought he got from her head was, “You feel like he’s the father you never had.”) In concern to Leia she does admit, “I just should have never sent him away. That’s when I lost him.” She sent him away because of his powers, imagine what that would have felt like for this young man. They weren’t perfect parents, not to say they didn’t try their best, not to say they didn’t love their child, but sometimes all that isn’t enough.

All in all, the existence of Kylo Ren places Leia and Han in positions we probably never wanted to see them in.

So as a child Ben was neglected, I’m not saying his parents meant to do it, but it happened his parents weren’t really around. And this part is just speculation, but if on top of that if this kid sensed the problems and fights between his parents it just adds up to that. And on top of it all, the kid was being targeted by Snoke since he was in the womb and he found from a source that wasn’t his parents the truth about Darth Vader. So yeah, Han and Leia loved their child but they made mistakes, things that played a role in him turning to the dark side. And note that I am saying it played a role, that doesn’t make them responsible. I’m not taking responsibility from Kylo Ren, he’s responsible for the atrocities he’s committed, what I’m saying is that there were other factors that influenced him and led him to the dark side, he’s not evil for the sake of being evil.

This notions anti have of wanting Leia to hate her son or even want him dead is something I can’t comprehend. In the movie she explicitly states, “You think I want to forget him? I want him back” even after all the bad things she knows he’s done she wants him back because he’s her child, everything about that notions tells you that nothing will change that. She says, “There’s still light in him, I know it” something people seem to completely disregard.

Luke and Padme were right about there still being light in Anakin/Darth Vader, and Leia is right about there being light in her son still. Throughout the whole movie we see Kylo Ren conflicted, the movie constantly reminds us of this. When he talks to his grandfather’s mask, “I feel it again. The pull to the light” so it’s something he’s never quite been able to rid himself of. Even during the interrogation, he’s supposed to be interrogating and is instead, I dare say, empathizing with the enemy, “You’re so lonely. At night, desperate to sleep.” And of course, in the scene with his father, he literally says, “I’m being torn apart.”

So, when people are unable to accept even the possibility of a redemption for him, it’s full of double standards. (You don’t have to like the possibility, or even like the character, but how can you deny it exists?) Going at this in the most simplistic way possible. When people say, “No he’s evil, he executed a whole village” while Anakin has killed countless as well, even that group of younglings. “No he’s evil, he killed his father” Anakin killed Obi Wan who was the closest thing he had to a father. “No he’s evil, he tortured Rey” no, he tortured Poe and interrogated Rey while Anakin did torture his daughter and choked his pregnant wife, and cut off his son’s hand. So yeah, if redemption was possible for Anakin/Darth Vader it is definitely possible for Ben/Kylo Ren.

Family Dinner

[Obi-Wan and Anakin’s Force Ghosts, and Old Luke with Rey at Luke’s little hermit dining table. An awkward silence has set in.]

Rey: [nervously darting her eyes back and forth between parties as she eats] So…the Force, huh? It’s…something. I’m a fan. Personally. From what I’ve seen. 
Anakin: [bitterly] Well! At least someone is.
Luke: [rolling his eyes] …just say it, dad. 
Anakin: [irritated] Whatever do you mean, son?
Luke: Look you were never that big of a fan of the Jedi, either! Need I remind you? 
Anakin: I DIED to destroy the Sith! Yes: the Jedi were kind of a bunch of dicks sometimes, but you know what? I really liked some of those dicks! 

[Rey and Obi-Wan’s eyes widen] 

Anakin: [continuing] And I have lived on both sides of the fence, son, and let me tell you: the Dark Side? Is the actual WORST. It’s cold, and you have to go to bunch of boring meetings about mining, and you don’t even get a foosball table in your Vader pod and everything hurts all the time. At least the Jedi tried to stop Ultimate Evil! Also? [pointing at Obi-Wan] How can you do this to your Obi-Wan? HOW
Obi-Wan: [pushing his food around on his plate] Well it’s not the first time one of you has done this…
Luke: [pinching the bridge of his nose] [murmurs to himself] Oh Force, he’s going all-in. Ben, look, you know I love you, but the Jed– 
Obi-Wan: No no, Luke, it’s fine. I’m fine. I’m used to rejection and sadness and watching my life’s work shatter in front of me. In fact, I’d have been shocked if you hadn’t turned on the Jedi by now.
Luke: [pained] Ben
Obi-Wan: I mean what have I ever done for you except live a life of solitude and pain, and save you from all that stuff that tried to kill you over and over again, and teach you how to use the Force? You’re right. I shouldn’t have bothered. [Luke stares at him while Anakin stares daggers at Luke] Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I should go meditate. I have some feelings I need to release into the Force. [chugs his entire remaining whiskey, stalks off] 
Anakin: [scowling at Luke] You see what you did to him?!
Luke: Oh so just because I’m questioning the relevance of the Jedi, I’m the worst person ever? You’re the one who tried to kill him those couple of times!
Rey: [taking a huge gulp of her wine glass, wide-eyed]

SPOILERS- STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, TRAILER BREAKDOWN

We start with a pan up on Ahch-to, transitioning from a image of space as it turns into shot of a rock which rey slams her hand onto, the sound of her gasping suddenly is heard (reminiscent of the opening for the first TFA trailer with Finn gasping as he stands up on Jakku) , she looks wet it could either be that she has just come out of a vision and is sweating or she has had an encounter with the sea monster we heard rumoured a while back.

“Breath” we hear Luke say, training rey to control her new powers one would speculate, more images of Ahch-to it will be playing a big part in the film obviously 

“just breath” Luke says again, we can’t know for sure but this again could be rey about to face off against the rumoured sea monster or its just a dramatic shot

lilian-cho  asked:

Dear forcearama, I just realized today that we can see Obi-Wan's collarbones in Phantom Menace, but not in AotC and RotS. Did Obi-Wan look at himself in the mirror one day and goes, "Nope, too sexy" and decide to deprive the galaxy of his collarbones forever? Is Anakin going to look at Obi-Wan's old padawan pictures and feel ROBBED?

Oh, this is a Quality Ask. Thank you. 

Let’s take a look at this a bit closer, shall we? 

1. The Phantom Menace (I mostly just wanted an excuse to post this picture because it makes me laugh. LOOK AT THE BRAID. Even Obi-Wan looks mildly embarrassed.) 

This is like…Shockingly Revealing Clothing Territory here. Is this getup Jedi Order-Approved, Padawan Kenobi?! I see chest hair! I, for one, am scandalized. Deeply. The Duchess of Mandalore agrees with me. Someone get me my smelling salts. Collarbones and chest hair: the path to the Dark Side. (And yes, Anakin totally feels robbed.) 

2. Attack of the Clones

I’m just going to presume that he realized that he couldn’t have the Wild Wolfman Hair AND his earlier outfit situation going on at the same time or people would just be too distracted to even speak to him, so he’s brought the neckline up a bit here. (But you also know Obi-Wan was slowly revealing more of the collarbones during High Stakes Negotiating. It’s part of his ~Method~.) 

3. Revenge of the Sith 

I’m dying. He’s practically wearing a turtleneck under there! This is his most Demure Ensemble ever. Keeping in mind that his main collaborators during this time were Episode 3-Era Anakin Skywalker and His Hair, I am assuming that he covered up even more because the combined Handsome involved was flagged as a legitimate threat to the Galaxy, so he’s just going to hide 90% of his body under several ridiculously long layers of clothing most of the time. (This also makes the Dramatic Disrobe extra effective.) 

Just think: if the war had continued much longer, he’d probably have started wearing a ski mask. 

On the plus side, the high neckline probably helped minimize sunburn during his Desert Hermit Years. 

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s Crying About STAR WARS Time and I love that apparently it’s a never-ending font of things to cry about in the GFFA. But, hey, at least sometimes it’s crying in a good way? So, here, come cry some more with me about these space monks with their laser swords.

Anakin: Hey, I don’t want to hear you complaining about y/n.

Obi-Wan: Did I say anything?

Anakin: He’s trying. I saw the look on your face; you’re irritated.

Obi-Wan: *muttering* Well he should’ve deactivated the power systems and met up with us by now…

Y/N: Hey guys! *runs up* Sorry it took so long, I got held up by some droids.

Anakin: *turns to Obi-Wan* See? Nothing to worry about. 

REQUESTS ARE OPEN!

My first reaction to this was pretty much to scream, “WELL, GOODBYE” because, holy shit, canon confirmation that Obi-Wan would leave the Jedi Order for Anakin, I’m going to revel in these feelings about my ship, go on without me.

But even beyond that I think it’s really spot-on characterization because Obi-Wan really and truly fully dedicated himself to Anakin, by this point he is 100% going to devote his life to guiding Anakin, wherever that takes him.  He would never force Anakin into a choice that wasn’t truly his own, he thinks Anakin belongs with the Jedi (he’s too young, he’s not ready, being part of the Jedi means being part of something bigger/stronger–in other words, Anakin needs that structure in his life), but if Anakin truly wants to go, then Obi-Wan will go with him.

At the same time, one of the central points about Obi-Wan’s character is that one of his greatest flaws (if you want to call it that) is the same as Anakin’s: attachment.

     Yoda began to pace the small chamber, the tapping of his gimer stick loud in its silence.  "Know do you, Obi-Wan, why reluctant I was for Skywalker to become your apprentice?“
    Did he know? Not for certain. And once he and Qui-Gon had prevailed over the Council, and Anakin had been made his Padawan, Yoda’s objections had no longer mattered.
    "Ah … no, Master,” he said cautiously.Yoda flicked him a skeptical glance.
    “Hmmm. Then tell you I will. Reluctant I was because the same flaw you share, Obi-Wan. The flaw of attachment.”
                              –Wild Space, by Karen Miller

The above moment is about Obi-Wan’s dedication to his vow to see Anakin trained, but that moment doesn’t exist in a vacuum, it exists alongside Obi-Wan’s tendency to become attached to that which he loves–and loves Anakin he does.  (Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan directly tells Anakin that he loved him.)

This is why I say that Anakin Skywalker is the great love of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s life.  It doesn’t matter if I mean it romantically or platonically or in a more familial sense, because he’s attached to Anakin, he loves Anakin, he’s chosen to dedicate his life to Anakin, he would leave the Jedi Order for Anakin, he spends the last 20 years of his life watching over Anakin’s child.

He’s not the only person Obi-Wan has loved, there have been many, in various forms.  Qui-Gon Jinn, Siri Tachi, Satine Kryze, the Jedi Order as a whole.  But his dedication to and love for Anakin are greater than all of them.

Tano and Kenobi: A New Assignment

Previously on Tano and Kenobi…

After a tense duel between Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano for the right to train Senior Initiate Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano emerges victorious. After their apprenticeship is approved by the Jedi Council, the two take part in the ancient Jedi ceremony that binds a Master and a Padawan Learner together in the guiding light of the Force.

We rejoin our heroes, two years into their partnership, Obi-Wan determined to become the best Padawan Learner in the Order and Ahsoka determined to prevent the cruel future that threatens to destroy the galaxy once more…

First | Previous | Next | AO3


“When you are ready, please begin, Padawan Kenobi.”

The Northern Solar training room was filled with the brilliant light of midday sun filtered through the high, arched stained glass windows that looked out onto Coruscant and the speeder bay three levels below. A group of padawans, none older than fifteen standard years, were assembled in the far left corner of the room, milling about as they each waited their turn to tackle the complicated obstacle course set up by Master Ki-Adi-Mundi. Three padawans had already made their way through the course with decent times and only a few falls and one face plant but that had been because Quinlan Vos had been showing off again.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padawan Learner to temporally displaced Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano, was next in line and he had every intention of blasting through the obstacle course with a perfect score and the fastest time of the day. He shot a glance over at his master, who was sitting on the benches that lined the side of the room, her legs crossed and her posture relaxed and confident. She gave him a bright smile and two thumbs up as pride and faith flowed across their training bond.

You’ve got this, Obi-Wan. I know you do.

Obi-Wan took a deep, full-body breath, practically levitating up onto his toes with excitement and nerves. He exhaled and relaxed down into a starter’s crouch, waiting for the Force to sing.

Ki-Adi-Mundi watched the boy with an arched brow but said nothing, trusting Kenobi to know when the time was right.

The Force swirled and let out a note of cheerful harmony and Obi-Wan was off like a shot, his gait smooth and even as he sprinted up an incline and into the obstacle course, adrenaline flowing through him as he vaulted both legs over a low obstacle and moved on to a complicated piece of machinery that was supposed to swing him over a chasm that could have played host to a river, a congested skyway or vein of red hot lava on a volcanic planet somewhere.

Ahsoka watched Obi-Wan breeze through the first two obstacles, cheering him on from the sidelines. There were a few other masters there, observing their own padawans and gossiping about the latest rumors floating around the temple. Apparently Qui-Gon Jinn had managed to improvise his way to a diplomatic solution on a Mid-Rim planet that had been plagued by infighting between powerful dynastic houses. He would be heading back to the Temple after he officiated a few royal weddings and was made a minor deity in the local state religion.

Ahsoka shook her head, her lips quirked. It seemed the Old Glacier was up to his usual antics and she was glad Obi-Wan hadn’t been forced to tag along, especially given his tendencies to rush blindly ahead into danger in his drive to help others and bring peace to the Galaxy. Knowing Obi-Wan, he would have gotten himself betrothed on accident and Qui-Gon would have made things even worse trying to extricate the boy from the unwanted union.

The combination of Jinn and Kenobi might have worked before but Ahsoka was confident that she and Obi-Wan were a much better team this time around. Obi-Wan was already more confident and less critical than when she met him and nearly two years into their pairing as Jedi Master and Padawan Learner their time together had brought a new kind of stability to them both.  Ahsoka’s nightmares of Vader, the Empire, and her lost friends were fewer and farther between and Obi-Wan’s outbursts of righteous anger and destructive self-criticism were slowly coming under control. No one in the Temple could really say they were the model of a perfect master-padawan pair but they were a fiercely devoted team working together to become better than what they were.

To be ready for the darkness when it rose up and threatened the peace of the galaxy yet again.

Control Your Feelings - Star Wars

“Could you do an Obi Wan imagine where the reader gets in trouble for thinking about him romantically?”

You were sitting cross-legged on a stool, staring across the grassy courtyard at Obi-Wan Kenobi as he instructed a group of younglings in their beginning saber lessons. Obi-Wan’s master, Qui-Gon Jinn, walked amongst the younglings, adjusting their stances or offering little bits of advice. You couldn’t hear what they were saying, but you enjoyed watching Obi-Wan move as he demonstrated various arm movements. You enjoyed it quite a bit.

You mindlessly bit your lower lip and slumped as you continued to stare, completely lost to reality.

“Y/N…..” A voice said in front of you. You seemed to not hear.

“Y/N!” The voice called louder and you snapped your head forward and sat up straight.

“Ye…Yes Master Windu?” You stammered to the man sitting in front of you. He too was sitting cross legged on a stool, hands on his knees, and eyes fixed on you with slight exasperation.

“I said that is NOT meditation.” He said bluntly before standing, motioning you to stand as well.

“I’m sorry Master.” You stood slowly.

Mace Windu began walking toward the temple doors as you stole one last glance across the courtyard. Obi-Wan caught your gaze and smiled at you before returning to his instruction. You held back a grin and felt your skin grow warm as you stepped in beside your Master.

“Your mind is focused Y/N, but not on what it should be focused on.” He stepped through the doors and began down a long hallway.

Every so often I come across a fic where Padme survives and decides to go into hiding and raise the twins to hate their father and I’m just like…what? Did you miss the part where this woman’s dying words were about how she thought her husband was redeemable? I can see Padme taking time off to deal with her health and infant children, but any story where she is not at least arguing they can save Anakin’s soul can fuck right off.

There is Power in Threes (Part 1/3+1)

@the-last-hair-bender, @meggory84,

I present the unbeta’d chapter one of that Labyrinth/Star Wars crossover you all wanted me to write. I can’t promise chapter 2 for a few weeks, as I’ve exams I really ought to be studying for. But I hope you enjoy the first bit. (Continues under a cut as its a tad longer than I like posting otherwise.)


Obi-Wan is nine - three by three - the first time he meets the Goblin King. A full moon shines alone in the eternally lit skies of Coruscant. The initiates had been studying Darthominian folk customs that afternoon in their class on the cultures of other Force users. Bruck had broken a precious artifact in the teacher’s absence, then proceeded to blame it on Obi-Wan. The teacher had not believed his denial. “With behaviour like this, maybe the Goblins should take you,” the Master taking the class had declared. Half jest to reassure him, but that meant they were half sincere at the seriousness of the crime.

“Hey, Oafy-wan.” Bruck had called that night, safe in their dorm. “Maybe tonight Goblins will take you away. You’d fit right in with them.”

Obi-Wan had clenched his fists, gritted his teeth, and forced himself to not retaliate. He had already been refused that night’s sweet, and forced to clean the common area. All for something he had not done.

That night cold and alone, Obi-Wan gazed longing out the window at the moon, hugging himself close. “You know what I wish?” He asked the stars he couldn’t see. “I wish, I wish the Goblin King would take me away to the Goblin Kingdom. At least there I’d know I was wanted.”

Deep at the heart of the Room of a Thousand Fountains, an old water clock completed its final cycle for the day. When the final chime fell silent, the only things in the bed by the window are a small round crystal - clear and pure as a drop of moonlight - and a single stray feather.
