Hey dreamers! Can you believe it? One year ago I started working on this project that came from a dream I had and I can’t believe it has turned into what it has. Daisuga makes me the happiest~ o(*^▽^*)o
Watching this scene from “The Jedi Who Knew Too Much” I always wondered why Ahsoka never sensed Barriss choking Letta. Sure, Barriss was presented as more proficient in the Force than Ahsoka because she’d been training longer, but was she powerful enough to reach through a whole compound and Force choke someone she wasn’t even looking at?
But then I remembered there is someone that powerful, who could probably choke someone out on the other side of Coruscant if he wanted to.
Come to think of it, we never see Barriss choking anyone. She fights Ahsoka and Anakin in lightsaber duels, and even when she wants to steal from Ventress, she only knocks her out with a blunt object. If anyone, Ventress would be the one to choke– not only to get her mask and lightsabers, but also to prohibit her from talking about it later. It makes me think Barriss wasn’t completely heartless.
(Yes, true, Barriss was the bomber. But bombs are impartial killers, and Barriss didn’t have to be anywhere near it to set it off. Strangling someone– even with the Force in Star Wars– is very personal.)
And through TCW and the movies, we’ve only seen the Force choke regularly employed by Dark Side initiates. …And Anakin.
ok so i just keep…thinking about this one moment. I don’t want to get too deep because honestly i don’t know how this will turn out but for real, when was the last time Bea was touched so affectionately? Years? not ever? I don’t want to wax lyrical and say that this is the beginning of some big love story because i know it isn’t but, the genuine vulnerability in this scene is something we haven’t seen from Bea in so long, at least in front of other people.
I don’t think Bea has had anyone for the time she’s been “top dog” that wants her for who she is, not what they want/need from her. whether thats protection or for someone to fight their battles. She’s lonely, she’s incredibly repressed and i always think about Piper’s quote in Orange is the new black about needing someone to touch, someone to love. Prison is lonely and human affection is so important and this is the first gentle touch she’s probably felt in so long. Allie doesn’t want anything from her except to be with her, which must feel nice, especially when you’re lonely.
The discussion was so important too, and even if nothing comes from it, it was a nice moment that Bea honestly really needed.
anyway i hate this show i hate myself i hate how invested i am in these characters.
