Forgive me if you've shared this already, but what does Vaderkin look like in Anabasis? I know you've talked about his scars, but what about clothes and hair?
*strolls in four months late with tea and an answer*
(For reference, Starlightify did a fantastic rendition of Anakin’s many scars here.)
In general terms, he looks closer to AOTC Anakin than ROTS Anakin.
As Vader he kept his hair quite short, but by the time of the main story he’s been in Jedi custody and hasn’t had a haircut
for a while, so it’s getting a bit long. (Still probably shorter than ROTS, though.)
Under the Empire he wore Sith black, of course, and in public he was always cloaked and hooded. His clothes were usually bulky and obscuring, designed to hide as well as to intimidate. People who interacted with him would be left with a sense of looming darkness, but wouldn’t be able to name any distinguishing features about his appearance. Nobody ever saw his face.
In Jedi custody, he wears a single layer of nondescript tan. Anakin thinks of this as prison clothes, and technically he’s right, but tbh the Jedi just dressed him in what they had to hand, which was the first layer of a Jedi uniform.
In the very beginning those prison clothes leave him feeling nervous and exposed. He’s used to having the protection of his hood and several obscuring layers. He’s not used to people seeing him. Master was always very adamant that he couldn’t be seen.
There’s no way to hide in the Jedi clothes. Which is of course the point.
And yes, that puts him on edge, but there’s also a certain thrill to it. Palpatine took his name and his face and made him a weapon, but Anakin gave his name to Padme and now he’s showing his face to the world. It’s terrifying and liberating at the same time.
The prison clothes aren’t a constant, though. The Jedi dress him in black again every time he’s taken to the Senate for a hearing, just in case the Senate needs to be reminded of what he is.
But if he had the choice, Anakin would probably still prefer black. For Tatooine reasons rather than Sith reasons (though there’s probably also a subconscious sense of comfort in familiarity). But the obscuring cloaks wouldn’t reappear.
Actually, given a choice, Anakin’s likely to dress in something pretty similar to Luke’s black ROTJ outfit.
Okay I’m at a loss for words right now… so basically I’m at my mom’s house right now and where she lives there are alleys next to her house. Anyways my neighbor has a surveillance camera that is pointing DIRECTLY into my room so my sister went over and talked to them and was like you need to take that down or I’m going to call the police and they said “we’re using it to watch the alley not her room” BUT ITS LITERALLY POINTING RIGHT AT MY BED and my room is on the second floor… shouldn’t the camera be pointing down towards the alley and not directly at my window ?!?!? So anyways my sister called the police and they came and literally didn’t do anything. I’m so fucking angry like I feel so violated. I don’t even wanna go into my room.
heyo i doubt anyone rly cares about my personal goings on and such but !! if u do !! the reason ive been super inactive today is because ive been p sick, so i was in doctors offices and the er and finally just got admitted to the hospital, but its probably nothing serious !!! anyway i had no phone charger but this blesset nurse just brought me one so hi im back im bored im in a hospital room and anyway if u wanna send asks or anything or just say hi im here lol
How the Living Legend Fights Statues over His Fiancee’s hand
I believe most of you have seen fans’ writing about Victor getting jealous over Yuuri’s ‘ex-lover’ Shachihoko or ‘Chihoko’. If you haven’t, please read them because you will not understand what I’m talking about next.
So firstly, what is Chihoko? Shachihoko しゃちほこ (鯱) is a mythical carp with the head of a lion and the body of a fish (auspicious protectors of well-being) and it looks like this:
And as you can see, they are VERY flexible. So when Yuuri taunted Viktor ‘Shachihoko is more flexible than you’ he actually talked about this half fish-half lion statue! Victor did not even get jealous to Yuuri’s human ex-lover, he got jealous over an effing statue!
But the story doesn’t stop there!
As you know, both Viktor and Yuuri were really drunk. And somehow a drunk Viktor is more extra than a sober Viktor. So he did what a jealous drunk lover do. He went to find and tried to challenge his rival ‘Chihoko’. But where is Chihoko?
That is the picture of Karatsu ‘Hasetsu’ Castle where Shachihoko or Chihoko lives.
So now, imagine a living legend Viktor Nikiforov. Imagine him climbing the Hasetsu Castle NAKED, challenging two ‘Chihoko’ he encountered, telling them “You maybe Yuuri’s past, but I’m his future!”
???!!!!! He is so extra I can’t take it anymore!!!!
