Anakin // Anakin x Reader

Can you please write an imagine were you are Obi wans daughter and he is very protective of you so he was hiding you on one of the planets but decides that you are in greater danger so him and Anakin go to get you and for Anakin it’s like love at first sight. Thank you so much and if you could, can you please write some of it in anakin’s pov. Thank you again!


14 years and 8 days. 5,118 in total. You were the daughter of the great Jedi Master, Obi Wan Kenobi. You being conceived was a complete accident that turned into his world. Your father had been involved in a relationship with your mother, a beautiful handmaiden to a princess. They weren’t married, they didn’t intend on being because of their jobs and they didn’t want to have a child because their jobs forbade it.

But when your mother, Caroline, got pregnant, it was the happiest day of Obi Wan’s life. You were a symbol of their undying love.

You were born, a healthy, beautiful baby. Caroline on the other hand was later diagnosed that month with stage three cancer. No treatments were available to her and she died two months after your birth.

Obi Wan was forced to take care of a child alone, and he had no clue how to raise you without the assistance of Caroline. Plus, Obi Wan was becoming more and more well known in the galaxy and sent on more and more missions. This soon became a threat to your safety, so he sent you to live with your mother’s sister, Elizabeth, and her husband, Harry, to raise you on Naboo.

Of course your father visited as much as he could, but it was hard for him. Soon, he was only visiting once a month, twice if you were lucky.

As you grew up, you learned more and more about your father and you wished that you could see him more often. Recently, you had turned nineteen and you wished your father could have been there to celebrate it with you.

That week, you were up in your room, writing in your journal when your Aunt Elizabeth knocks on your door. “(Y/N), darling. A message has just come in from your father. He is one his way to visit!” she says excitedly, making you rise from your chair.

A huge smile spreads across your face as you run to give your aunt a hug.

Meanwhile back on Coruscant, Obi Wan is prepping for take off on his ship as he talks to Anakin, his padawan. “Alright, listen you,” Obi Wan starts, “No staring, flirting, winking, smiling, breathing, or touching my daughter. You hear me?”

Anakin was known for being a flirtatious one after the Council removed the law of Jedi and having romantic attractions to others. The young Jedi chuckles, “I promise, sir.” Obi Wan skeptically raises an eyebrow. “I swear,” the Jedi crosses his heart with a finger as his Master nods his head.

“Good. Now, come along before she turns twenty,” Obi Wan directs as they start the journey to Naboo.

Anxiously waiting by the front door for you father’s arrival, you finally hear his ship land. You look to your aunt and uncle for permission to leave the house as the two of them smile and nod.

Squealing in excitement, you burst open the door and run to your father. “Daddy!” you exclaim as he embraces you.

“Oh, hello, love. I’ve missed you so much,” he tells you, placing a kiss on the top of your head as you squeeze him tight. “I’m sorry I missed your birthday, dear. I had a mission with the padawan and partner, Anakin. Speaking of him, Anakin! Come here, I’d like you to meet my daughter, (Y/N).”

Oh, he has.

Anakin was too busy literally drooling over you. Stunning. Absolutely stunning. He thought that you couldn’t be Obi Wan’s child, you were too hot. Snapping out of his daze, he speaks, “It’s a pleasure to meet you.” His gaze shifts to Obi Wan as he sends him a mind message.

Don’t do it. I will severe your head and keep it on a shelf as a trophy.

You smile at the Jedi. Your father would kill you if he knew what you were thinking, but his padawan was handsome as hell. He had sandy blonde hair with loose curls and dark eyes. His body language read loud and clear, I’m trying to stay away from you because your father will kill me if I don’t. Anakin. Even the name had an appeal to it. Anakin. The name gives you shivers. Anakin.

“Why are you here, Daddy?” you ask as Obi Wan clears his throat.

He breathes, “Well, you are getting older and more mature and now I’ve become more well known in the galaxy, there are people out there who try to find weaknesses in the light; you being mine. So, that being said, I want you to move back to Coruscant with me.”

The thought of being with your father at last for all these years makes a huge smile appear across your face. “Really?” you ask as Obi Wan shakes his head. “Oh, this is amazing!” You tightly embrace your father as your eyes watch Anakin dip his left eye into a wink.

Not only were you excited to be with your father, but you were also intrigued to get to know this new Anakin character.

That day, you spent the duration of it with your father, talking about the moving plan. After a few hours and twilight began to fall, you walk outside to watch the starry sky. You hear the door close behind you and you know it’s Anakin.

“My father told you to stay away from me,” you tease, looking at him.

He chuckles, “Well, I just can’t help myself.” As he approaches you, he takes your hand in his and the feeling gives you goose bumps. The two of you had just met earlier that day, but you cannot help, but feel a strong bond with him. Slowly, his head leans down to make his lips touch yours.

But a voice calls from inside, distracting the two of you. “Anakin, get your pathetic ass in here!”

This sentence causes you to burst out in laughter as Anakin rolls his eyes. “Every time,” he sighs.

Take care of the people you love but take really good care of the people who love you back. None of us are easy to love.

Eleanor of Provence (Aliènor d’Provença in Occitan, Élèonore de Provence in French) ( 1223-1291)

Eleanor was the second daughter of Count Ramon Berenguer IV of Provence and Beatrice of Savoy, and the granddaughter of Garsenda de Sabran, Countess of Forcalquier & Provence and noted trobairitz.

Like all three of her sisters, Eleanor would become a queen. She married Henry III of England in 1236, and would be his queen consort until Henry’s death in 1272. Though she was never popular in England, she and Henry enjoyed a mostly good relationship. She was the mother of King Edward I ‘Longshanks’, Margaret, Queen of Scotland, Beatrice, Duchess of Brittany, Edmund, Earl of Lancaster, and another daughter Katherine, who died young.

Eleanor was noted for her beauty, intelligence, political skills, love of fashion, and love of music and poetry.

Splinter and April in TMNT 2012

I’m not the first to talk about how Splinter is like April’s Dad-away-from-Dad, and of course it’s obvious that April has become like a daughter to Splinter. Still, I just thought I’d share some of my thoughts and favorite moments of these two.Their relationship in the 2012 series is just so beautiful.

They both know what it’s like to lose their family. I can’t help but notice that so far, Splinter has been separated from his daughter three times. 

Likewise, April has been separated from her father three times.

I think April’s able to understand Splinter’s pain - maybe not 100% - but more so than the boys. Nothing can compare to losing a spouse and child… but for April, losing her mother at the age of six, feeling like she lost her all over again at sixteen, and repeatedly losing her father makes her well acquainted with the pain of losing immediate family. 

The first time April lost her dad, Splinter became the father-figure she still needed in her life… and it wasn’t long before he began to care for her as his own. 

It must have been hard for him to give April the tessen he wished he could have given Miwa. 

It’s possible there was a part of him that felt like he was losing the last bit of his baby daughter he had left. But then, Splinter is never the one to see the glass as half-empty. Maybe he saw giving the tessen to April as a symbol of gaining a daughter… not losing one. Either way… this scene gave me feels.

I thought it was beautiful how Splinter views April (and even Casey) as part of his family. 

This next scene is probably my favorite Splinter and April scene. 

First of all, look how worried he is about her.

But April wasn’t worried at all. She’d grown to trust him so much that she knew without a shadow of a doubt that she could drop from twelve to fifteen feet in the air while he was yards away and he would STILL catch her. 

Princess Anna’s got nothin’ on this “crazy trust exercise.” 

And then, this:

She knows she’s in trouble. She knows she deserves whatever lecture he’s going to give her, but ever the daddy’s girl, she makes light of the situation and tries to deflect any discipline with cuteness. 

And this is another one of those moments when you just know she’s one of his kids.

I doubt he actually gave her the whooping he gave the boys. He probably just called her dad. (I bet they have some sort of dad network going on that someday Casey’s dad will be added to if he ever finds out who his son’s friends are.)

All this to say, I love how Splinter and April are there for each other. I love that Splinter is April’s Dad-away-from-Dad, and I love that April has become like a daughter to Splinter… and at a time when he thought his daughter was lost forever, too. 

They’re by no means replacements to each other. When April is separated from her dad, she always wants him back. And Splinter will always long to be reunited with his own child. 

Still, I think Splinter provides April with the stability she needs, while she in return has helped him heal in some ways. 

I know I’ve already used this word… twice… but it’s just so beautiful! Of course, I’m always a sucker for adoptive father/adopted daughter stories.

So today is mother’s day in US and everyone is sharing pics of cartoon moms and that’s cool and nice, but I think everybody is forgeting about something important.

The moms of Jeff. No one seems to care about them, or talk about them. And like, their relationship is not even something “subtle” in the show. They do say they are both married, and Jeff says that they are his moms.

C'mon guys, this is really progressive and important for kids with two moms, or even queer kids.

Happy mother’s day to all queer moms.

And to the sons and daughters of queer moms:

Your moms are beautiful and deserve love, theres nothing to be ashamed of. Give them all your love 💜✌

Give some love to this beautiful and funny cartoon moms💜

Medieval Indian Clothing Research, Potentially Exotified Indian Woman

@koalasonimpalas asked:

My story takes place in this fantasy world based kinda off of the medieval world, and there’s this girl who is leading a revolt against her half brother the king&stuff. So she is half Indian and half white& she’s gonna wear generally like medieval english&french styled outfits, but also represent her mother through accessories and accents that would be in India around the same time period, but I can only find like, ancient Indian accessories, but what were the trends like around say 1066-1452

Also, she’s the illegitimate daughter of a white King and an Indian mother. Would there be any way this could be kinda offensive, or play into stereotypes. I mean, her being illegitimate is a big part of the plot&I was planning on making the King currently unmarried when he has the relationship with the mother (and it’s actually like a loving relationship) but he can’t marry her because of her low station also she’s known for being beautiful and she has a low rank, could that be offensive?

I don’t know why you’re finding more on ancient Indian clothing than medieval Indian clothing.  Are these resources accurate in any way?  The truth about ancient Indian clothing is typically much more difficult to find.  Medieval Indian styles and artwork are very well recorded.  Two words: Mughal Period.

The whole illegitimate daughter thing could be difficult to handle and could easily play into the notion of the colonial or “exotic” concubine/loose woman of the East/some such nonsense.  Why does the mother have low rank?  Is it simply because she was “foreign” in a xenophobic society (you say this is fantasy, so when you say “Indian” I’m taking to actually be from an India-analogue) or because she had low rank in the society of her birth?  We have answered a number of asks on the Indian caste system before and so if this plot point is touching on something like that I would ask you to read this because that is a difficult topic to handle well.  It’s not completely off limits or anything, I’d just be careful how you handle it.  As a general rule of thumb, you can write about a racist society or racist characters but you as an author should be careful that you aren’t coming off as inadvertently condoning said racism, which is a hard trick to pull.

[women in history] -> manon baletti
Manon Balletti
(1740–1776) was the daughter of Italian actors performing in France and lover of the famous womanizer Giacomo Casanova. She was ten years old when she first met him; she happened to be the daughter of Silvia Balletti, an actress of the Comédie Italienne company and younger sister of Casanova’s closest friend.

The lovers started their relationship when Casanova was thirty-two years old and Manon was seventeen. (Although Manon’s mother was associated with acting, disreputable at the time, mother and daughter were observed by Casanova to be of a pure nature.) She wrote forty-two letters full of love and deep feelings for him; a well-known quote from these letters describes Casanova as: “My lover, my husband, my friend”. Casanova’s sexual passions caused him to be unfaithful, causing their three-year relationship to have numerous ups and downs. Yet she continued to share his home, found in Rue du Petit-Lion-St. Sauveur. Manon was at the time engaged to her clavichord teacher, but broke it off at Casanova’s request, thus starting a new engagement with him. This did not keep him from having various sexual relations with other women, yet Manon remained faithful to him. His memoirs record his regret for being unkind to her when having these affairs.
Once Casanova was imprisoned after he was sued by creditors in Paris. Manon sent a pair of diamond earrings with which she bought him out. Subsequently she ended the engagement and returned his portrait and letters. Manon married the architect Jacques-François Blondel a short while after, disappointing Casanova, who believed that he would one day be able to settle down with her.
Manon died at the age of 36, questionably from pulmonary hypertension. Casanova wrote in his memoirs that he believed his behavior shortened her life.

theobcessed I hope no one gets tired of our campaign. The struggle is never over, especially in our country. To anyone who might take offense on my use of the Bible, pls just focus on how beautiful this verse is about two women. The relationship has been questioned, but what matters is Ruth’s promise to Naomi that is being repeated in wedding ceremonies ‘til today: 😳😳
“Don’t urge me to leave you or turn back from you. Where you go, I will go, and where you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”

Snow and Regina - Family Lost and Found

There is no relationship more central to the long and complicated story of the Once Upon a Time family then that of Snow White and her prodigal stepmother Regina Mills and their journey highlights many of the most important themes of the show.

The Genuine Selfless Connection that Changes People

Snow White was a spoiled brat (by her own admission) who considered herself superior to others.  One can reasonably suspect that this came from her father who held her up as an idealized pure and beautiful child, the light of his life.

But Snow’s mother Queen Eva was trying to teach her daughter other lessons.  That despite her royal blood she should treat everyone with respect.  That people were inherently good and noble.  She lost her mother when she was nine, but not long after she encountered someone who proved her mother right. A purely good and heroic woman who risked her life to save a stranger and whose first instinct after she made sure Snow was safe was to make sure that Snow wasn’t afraid to ride again.

This woman also taught Snow one of the defining principles of her life.  That true love is the most powerful magic of all.  It creates happiness.  Snow sometimes struggles to be the kind of woman her mother wanted her to be.  She struggles at times with being selfish still.  It is not her purity or innate goodness that is worth admiring but her choice to be her best person.  And that best person is a combination of the lessons taught to her by her mother Queen Eva and by the woman who would be her stepmother Regina.

Evil isn’t Born it’s Made 

But the price for Regina of this act of heroism was her soul.  It wasn’t just that she didn’t want to marry Snow’s father.  It wasn’t just that she wasn’t interested in the trappings of power.  It was an active rejection of that life because she had seen what it had turned her mother into.

Her mother’s drive for power had made her a monster and by the time Regina had met Snow White she had her own lifetime to learn and reject those lessons.  There is a widely held theory among Evil Regal meta writers that Regina suppressed her innate magic (Rumple describes her as “so kind, so gentle, so powerful…” when he meets her) because she experienced it as dark and evil.

But no matter how good or how strong she was, Regina was an 18 year old girl trapped in a framework put in place by people more powerful than she was.  Her mother arranged the circumstances of the marriage and even as she begged people to stop the insanity no one did.

And Rumple, who was seeking a tool to cast the Dark Curse so he could travel to the Land without Magic and find his son, intentionally offered her a means of escape her situation.  Now some people like to point out that she could have run away after Cora was thrown into the mirror but the situation isn’t nearly that simple.  Even if Rumple had not stopped her, even if she didn’t have the potential of somehow saving Daniel with magic being held out to her, there was still the matter of the king.  She was a young girl, now without her mother (and does anyone really think Henry was much protection?), who if she had run away from the king on their wedding day would have given Leopold a profound loss of face.  One might even have suspected given the scandal of his betrothal to her mother two decades before an even deeper wound.  She would have been hunted down.

Snow wouldn’t have known all the details of the cage that trapped her stepmother, but she did grow to recognize the fact that an arrange marriage was a lonely and terrible fate.  She learned that by watching one at close distance.

Lost Hope is Poison Part 1

But even as she began her magical lessons Regina was trying not to walk down a path of darkness.  She wanted magic to save a life not to take revenge and that this resistance stunted her lessons with Rumple because his interest was teaching her dark magic because he had a greater plan for her that required her darkness.

There is a prevalent idea among Evil Regal meta writers that part of the problems she appeared to have when Zelena was spying on her lessons with Rumple is that the dark magic was inherently alien to the nature of her own magic.  For instance her first fireball forms and she’s proud of herself and that joy and pride causes the fire to go out because these emotions conflicted with the dark magic. 

In order for her to embrace the darkness fully she could not have hope in her heart and so Rumple (with the help of Jefferson and Whale) created an elaborate ruse in order to break the hope Regina had of finding some way to save Daniel with magic.

The Evil Queen was created by a death of hope and all her crimes afterward comes from a place of living on rage, anger and a lack of hope.   But even as the darkness that started to overwhelm her she continued resisting.  Had she had any help in these moments one wonders if she could have pulled back.  Or one wonders if Rumple would have allowed it as he gives her just the right doubt in her mind that will cause her to cling onto her anger and run away from the tavern and a new and better story with Robin.  (Other meta can be written about the role of the fairies in Regina’s story as Blue appears to be deliberately stopping them from helping Regina when we know she was savable from Tink).    

Snow is not, that we know of an active participant in these events that drive Regina towards destruction, but she is a witness to it.  Her assessment of Regina’s pain is interesting, as is her feeling that what Regina needed was to know that there was someone on her side.  A broader interpretation of that might be that Snow recognized that what Regina had needed was hope.

Lost Hope is Poison Part 2

But in the relationship between Snow and Regina it is not just Regina who is poisoned to darkness through loss of hope, but Snow falls victim to the same trap (though if she is being set up for the same fall or if she is collateral damage to Regina’s is another question).

Snow held onto Regina and the good person she knew was there for a very long time.  Longer than is remotely sane or healthy some might argue.  I suspect that the selfless connection and the goodness of people that were so important to the core of Snow’s identity required her to hold out hope for Regina to pull herself out of the darkness.

But Snow’s hope in Regina’s redemption was also perhaps the greatest danger to Rumple’s plans for the Dark Curse.  Regina’s commitment to the darkness was frustratingly fragile even after years of wallowing in darkness and death.  And for him to get her to cast the dark curse he needed her to stay on that road and he needed the one person (now not a child and potentially able to help Regina) to give up that persistent hope.

And so there is a redemption test, which Regina fails because it was designed for her to fail.  But more importantly it causes Snow to loose hope.  She will never see her friend or hero again.  The good woman that she knew is gone, or perhaps she never existed.  But it does more than just break Snow’s heart.

It drives her to her own obsession this time with defeating Regina by all means necessary, and protecting her family from the darkness by committing an act of darkness herself.

From The Cricket Game through New Neverland, The Unforgiven, and Best Laid Plans is a continuous sequence of events.  A loss of faith in the goodness of not just Regina but people in general drives Snow to an act of unquestionable darkness in choosing to take an innocent child from her mother and fill her with darkness.  While Regina’s loss of hope is tied to Daniel, Snow’s is tied to Regina, and both events drive them to do unspeakable things.

Even if you want to say that Snow’s choice of darkness stemmed only from a desire to protect Emma you have to look at what Snow’s fears for Emma were exactly.  The image Snow had of Emma lost to Darkness was her crushing a heart–something Snow undoubtedly at this point associates with Regina–and she fears having to watch Emma slip away into darkness just as she had to watch helplessly as she lost Regina in precisely the same way.

Pain Fades

Rumple tells Maleficent that pain fades unless you feed it.  Something he would know well as that is precisely how he made a monster out of a young girl and precisely how the Dark One curse creates monsters out of the afflicted (there is something to be said for the similarity between Dark!Clippy and it’s function for the Dark One and the way Rumple whispered in Regina’s ear in the function and creation of the Evil Queen).

For both women as soon as their pain is not actively been fed they start to come together in a kind of restoration of hope after mutual loss.  Regina’s depression during the missing year had to have been profound but it was not darkness being fed and directed.  Snow to was able to find hope again and the two of them come out of the missing year in a place where healing is possible.

It allowed each woman to heal independently and in their own relationships with each other so that they could both find the love that was fundamental to them.  It is an explicit lesson that no matter how horrible your past when you love someone you can heal those wounds and find family again.

Family is Complicated and Undefinable

When I talk about Snow and Regina people are often desperate to define their relationship in some neat box.  Enemies, friends, sisters, a complicated mother and daughter.  I tend to think that trying to put a label on it misses some of the best qualities.

Sometimes Regina is the hero/mother figure who Snow can count on to fix things that seem impossible.  Like protecting a secret that will rip apart her family….

Or find a way to get to her daughter lost to a vortex of evil…

And sometimes Snow is the big sister that gives Regina confidence to continue walking a hard path towards grace and forgiveness.

Or makes the the stubborn woman who wont take care of herself go to the hospital after an obvious head wound.

Sometimes it is the fact that they were once enemies that draws them closer than anyone could be without their rich history.

And sometime it really doesn’t matter what they are to each other exactly because family is the only description needed.

Written for the @ouatmetaproject  - 20 DEC-26 DEC: Family: Lost and Found.

Seeing Izzy on the verge of tears and saying ‘I’m used to it’ made me feel so upset. It’s actually heartbreaking that she feels like she has to change who she is and lose relationships with people to be good enough for her mother. Izzy is a loving sister, daughter and friend who will do anything for the people she loves, but is also allowed to do things that make her happy. She is a smart woman, who is allowed to be sexual when she feels comfortable with it. She is a highly skilled Shadowhunter, who is allowed look beautiful with her own style whilst protecting the ones she loves. Maryse is just too caught up in the reputation of the Lightwoods to care about hurting her children in the process. I hope Izzy gets more confidence to stand up to her mother as the season continues. 

anabieltheangel  asked:

Aphrodite is so underrated shes literally the oldest Olympian and probably the wisest? Like yeah we only see the shallow parts of her but she is such an interesting goddess with a lot of sides to her that everybody ignores

for sure! we see a super narrow/shallow version of her but love is such a spectrum, there is just so much more to her than we got to see unfortunately. That’s actually one of the things that intrigues me so much about Piper and her relationship with her mom/cabin. Piper puts her siblings and her mom in this super narrow box of what she knows beauty and love to mean, which is why she so aggressively rebels against it and has such turmoil in terms of feeling useless among the 7 and all that insecurity. But in BoO (though the build up was nonexistent, at least imo) we got to see her make peace with who her mother is. She accepted herself as her mother’s daughter, which is an aspect of the mother/daughter relationship that isn’t often talked about, and so it allows her to fully realize her powers. When she lets go of the stigmas against herself she is able to claim her birthright and thus fully step into her power. She found her voice as a daughter of Aphrodite and accepted that there were truly no limits to what that meant and that she could define it for herself. Not that I have any feelings about it or anything. xxx

As a lesbian, you should look up to her. She’s awesome. She’s also who I want as my daughter-in-law. Just saying.

“I promise to always hold your hand and skip with you down the street and bring comfort to your life. I vow to make you say your prayers before you eat.
