In the Obi Wan as Chancellor verse, how does Anakin react? Is he angry that Palpatine got the boot or that his master now has more to deal with? What about Cody? His trouble magnet general just became an even bigger target.
Cody is clearly going to be plotting with his brothers to ensure some sort of guard rotation, because their general isn’t just a general (and he was already a pretty big target because of that and all his shenanigans), now he’s the Supreme Chancellor as well.
Who thought this was a good idea?
The man runs himself ragged at the best of times, add even more difficult and time-consuming duties to his plate? They’re probably going to have to assign him his own healer who can go sit on him and make him sleep every now and then. Maybe even make use of a Force suggestion if need be.
As for Anakin, I see his reaction to be something like ?!?!?!?! where he’s not actually sure what to feel. Because he totally does trust Palpatine and doesn’t think it’s fair that he got ousted like that, but he also knows that Obi-Wan didn’t have anything to do with it. Also, of course Obi-Wan will do a good job, right? He’s Obi-Wan.
But also can he stop being amazing at everything? Anakin’s starting to feel inferior here. Must Obi-Wan be a High Councillor, Jedi master, high general and also the Supreme Chancellor???
He’s also running on the same type of panic Cody and the entire 212th do. The man has no self-preservation and now a whole new bunch of people are going to start gunning for him!
Anakin Skywalker isn’t certain what he’s feeling. On one hand, he’s upset that a senator had the gall to call Chancellor Palpatine incompetent. The man has done his best for the Republic for years. How could she say something like that?!
He’d seen the reports on the holonews, of course. He doesn’t think anyone in the Republic has missed the pictures of Senator Mandai with her arms stretched in the air, possibly former-Chancellor Palpatine gaping, and Jedi master Obi-Wan with a look of horrified confusion on his face. Anakin hasn’t seen Obi-Wan look like that before, he’s usually too good at remaining calm and straight-faced. If the situation wasn’t what it is, Anakin probably would’ve framed that picture.
