and now he felt her, really felt her in the force, as though she could have been some kind of jedi, too, but more than that: he felt a bond, a connection, deeper and more intimate than he’d ever had before with anyone, even obi-wan; for a precious eternal instant he was her…he was the beat of her heart and he was the motion of her lips and he was her soft words as though she spoke a prayer to the stars

  • What She Says:I'm fine.
  • What She Means:While he was willing to accept that his father was evil and in need of help and forgiveness, did Luke actually know the details of what Anakin did the night he attacked the Jedi Temple? Was Luke aware that his father ignited his lightsaber on a roomful of defenseless children and slaughtered each and every one of them? Did he know that Vader strangled Luke's mother? Did he know what all occurred between Anakin and Obi-Wan on Mustafar, and the battle that tragically ended a friendship...and marriage? When Luke looked on the bodies of his murdered students, was it a grim reminder of what his father had once done, or was it a complete and horrific shock when Anakin's ghost sadly admitted that this was very similar to his own actions?

So do you think there was ever a chance that little Luke Skywalker aged, I don’t know, eight or nine, found (he may have been dared to enter crazy old Ben’s place) an old and faded holograph of what he thinks, no, is convinced is actual, real life Jedi. Biggs insists he’s got delusions of grandeur, everyone knows the Empire wiped out the order and everything to do with them. But Luke’s sure of it, studying the holo and the way that the two men in it are standing proud, unaware of the imager capturing the moment in time, forever securing this picture.

The holo’s old now, glitchy and striped with vertical lines but still slightly viewable. He likes the one with the beard who looks confident if tired, like he’s carrying the whole galaxy on his shoulders, but it’s the one with the shoulder length hair that catches Luke’s attention, filling underneath his ribs with hope; a jagged scar running across one of his eyebrows and wearing a genuine, if slightly smug smile that’s aimed at his companion.

Luke’s sure that they’re Jedi, even when his friends laugh at him. They’ve probably never even set foot on a planet like Tatooine, but Luke likes to think that maybe there’s a secret Jedi hiding out on this dust ball of a planet, biding their time until the day is right. Stars, maybe once upon a time his dad even snuck them aboard his spice freighter to try and hide them from the Empire.

He likes to think that anyway, that his dad would have helped them; Anakin Skywalker, last saviour of the Jedi.


# Anidala: the OTP that had life-changing discussions about life, death and babies on open balconies while they were both in various stages of undress involving semi-transparent materials and a lot of bare skin. Just imagine all the pyjamas parties they could have had with their kids if Anakin didn’t fall to the Dark Side.
