Oh, yes, this is what I’m here for, Obi-Wan immediately loses his shit when Anakin’s threatened, just instantly brings out the lightsaber and starts swinging it and then, WHAM, Anakin is taken over and Obi-Wan has to fight him and, oh, yes, give me more of this, give m– hey wait– what’s–

Why does that seem familiar….?

OH RIGHT

HOW DARE YOU GIVE ME THESE FEELINGS, I DON’T WANT THIS.

I DON’T CARE THAT IT WAS A DELIBERATE PLAN ON OBI-WAN’S PART, THAT IS NOT COOL, STAR WARS.

STOP MAKING OBI-WANT WITNESS THE DEATH OF HIS LOVED ONES AND KNEELING OVER THEM WHILE THE LIFE DRAINS OUT OF THEM. STOP. IT.

@skymurdock ​ and I had a fun discussion about Obi-Wan and Anakin on a motorcycle and how they’re both assholes about it and it delighted me, so here we go.

  • Anakin would drive wild on purpose, Obi-Wan would drive slow on purpose just to drive Anakin insane.
  • Anakin keeps complaining that the kid on the bike—yes, the one with PEDALS that you have to use your FEET for like BARBARIANS—just passed them
  • CAN’T YOU GO ANY FASTER, he yells.  Nope, says Obi-wan, unconcerned.
  • Obi-Wan slows down even more just for that.  He waits for EVERYONE to pass in front of them.  It is a justified revenge.
  • Anakin is groaning against his shoulder and every time he does, Obi-Wan’s smile gets a tick bigger.

IT’S REVENGE FOR:

  • Anakin in charge of a bike once slipped under a truck like in the movies and somehow came out of it unscathed.  Obi-wan shuts his eyes, clings on for dear life, prays very hard.
  • You know all those crazy ass motorcycle stunts?? Anakin has done them all at least twice, because he looked at them and he said to himself “I could totally do them.”
  • And he can, that’s the awful part.  So he keeps doing them!
  • Revs up the bike, calmly flies over a goddamn truck from a ramp in the middle of traffic.  You can hear a cop somewhere screaming NO SIR WHAT THE HELL.
  • Sadly, he still can’t Jedi Mind Trick them into not giving him a ticket, because he’s shit at Jedi Mind Tricks. And Obi-Wan refuses to do it.  Refuses to even get back on the bike with him.
  • The second Obi-wan is off that bike he just staggers away so he can sit down and catch his breath like holy shit that was fucking terrible.
  • He pretends he’s about to vomit, just to make a point.
  • Anakin doesn’t mind, he knows Obi-Wan’s faking it, so it just makes him grin more.  Actually, if he ever did manage that, it would be the Greatest Day Of His Life.  It’s pretty impossible, though.  Obi-Wan hates flying, but that doesn’t mean he can’t handle it, so he can handle this too, which is a shame.

AND THEN DOUBLE REVENGE

  • Obi-wan has the capacity to pull off those same insane stunts, he just only pulls them out when he’s in pursuit of a suspect, otherwise Anakin complains that literally everyone is passing them.
  • THAT KID WALKING PAST WITH HER DOG JUST PASSED US.
  • Then there’s the time Obi-Wan spotted a drive-by hit about to go down and he was driving so of course he TOOK OFF LIKE A SHOT, like even Anakin’s driving wasn’t that insane, and Anakin has the GREATEST DAY EVER until they get to the gang members and then OBI-WAN THEY HAVE GUNS WHY ARE YOU LIKE THIS THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A NICE DATE FFS.
  • “JUST ONE DATE,” Anakin yells, “JUST ONE DATE WHERE I DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH GANG MEMBERS OR GUNS OR ANYTHING”
    “Last week counts!”
    “LAST WEEK THE THEATRE EXPLODED.”
    “But there were no guns and drugs whatsoever.”
    “THERE WERE TERRORISTS!”
    “My point stands.”
    “WE HAD TO CRAWL THROUGH THE VENTS YOUR POINT DOES NOT STAND.”
    “You enjoyed it!”
    “Up until I got STUCK.”

'Star Wars' Firing Reveals a Disturbance in the Franchise
New details emerge from the set of the troubled Han Solo movie (an editor fired, a last-minute acting coach hired) as insiders debate whether problems trace to directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, or if the Disney and Lucasfilm series can accommodate divergent styles.

Now the editor got fired….

How much more sadder can this movie get? They should just cancel it and call Ewan McGregor to get this Obi Wan Kenobi movie started!

You know what should have happened, right at the end of Escape From Kevado?

Governor Roshti’s talking with Ahsoka, same as in the canon, but after the discussion that we see in the ep, Roshti asks her if she’s happy with the decision that she made as a young child - being a Jedi, and not knowing her family.

Ahsoka pauses thoughtfully, and the camera follows her meaningful gaze over to where Plo, Obi-wan and Anakin are still standing, talking among themselves, before she says “Actually, Governor, I do know my family.”

That would have been good.

This image is for @legobiwan ! I was scrolling through my screenshots the other day (I have an embarrassingly large collection of Clone Wars screenshots - I’m obsessed with the cinematography… among other things…) and I found this gem. I always focus on Obi-Wan but then I noticed the truly murderous look in Dooku’s eyes. At first I literally LOLed because Dooku looked so severe, but then I thought, taken out of context, by itself this image could serve as a fun writing prompt. Since your Dooku-Obi-Wan work is so good (!!!!!) I knew I had to share it with you. To me, this shot looks like it could be a master and apprentice.
