Because I must have some masochistic tendencies somewhere, I occasionally hit up tF.n, and I happened on this thread.

The premise?

Say qui-gon and obi-wan had defeated darth maul. We can assume that, had Qui-gon not been killed, he would have trained Anakin as he said he would, and Obi-wan would have become a knight and taken on another padawan. Do you think that, being trained by Qui-gon, Anakin may have not turned to the dark side? Maybe obi-wan wasnt a very good mentor, maybe anakin didnt really need a "brother" but someone more experienced.

Im not really suggesting anything about Obi-wans training, but just maybe things would have been different if Qui-gon had trained him instead.


Most of the discussion doesn't bug me, until I get to this bit, "Qui-Gon wouldn't phrase it that way, but I could see him telling Anakin that they can't go back to Tatooine. Afterall, he told Obi-Wan to ignore what he was sensing early in TPM."

How the hell is Obi's elsewhere...elusive sensation anything like Anakin's very specific vision of his mother being tortured?

Honestly, I think it was wrong to ignore both, because Obi-Wan was actually right, there was something rotten being stirred up, but ...apples and oranges much?

I've been hanging out at Sithnet.net lately (and they're really a bunch of interesting folk) but I think the thread that earned the award for "teh most funnay" was here, using these quotes:

Those of you who do not like Mace will seriously appreciate this...Collapse )

Star Wars-A Movie Review

A review of Star Wars from the Buddhist perspective and by the gods and the Tapestry, it is fucking brilliant. He really gets it. Read, read....

Hullo! I'm new here, not so new to the Star Wars, Vader, or Anakin side of the fandom, and quite, quite jealous of everyone who has already said with great eloquence what was boiling in the back of my mind when I watched ROTS!

Now, if I may, I shall like to personally address the Galaxy A Long Long Time Ago...

A few sharp words in the Jedi's Direction...Collapse )

What I've always found limiting about the GL mode of thinking is that Sith/Jedi IS absolute, that there is absolutely no room for shades of grey. So a smartass with fast hands and a fast lightsaber MUST be halfway to the Dark Side? Someone who grieves for lost friends, loves, or parents is open to temptation because, omg, they're acting like human animals? Teh h0rr0rz! So a jaunt down the Dark Path will FOREVER doom you, because omg, liek, teh dark side will pwn j00?

Thank Timothy Zahn for the plot involving Luke and HIS trip to the Dark Side that it ACTUALLY doesn't work that way! It's a shame that because Anakin's fall is the vehicle for the story, he doesn't really get the same chance -he's given a ten minute contrition and in the EU, is maligned even by his offspring for years; until grandkid Anakin Solo is named after him: but wait. He gets killed, doesn't he?

So, there is this really good, and I mean good fic about Vader in the latest issue of SW Insider.

If you disliked Bob before hand, you will despise him now.

Lord Vader comes across as calm, collected and very intelligent.

With such lines as...Collapse )

Trust me, if you are a Vader fan, you want this fic.

So I was in the mood for some Anakin. Put in ROTS to enjoy Star Pilot Hero Anakin and Loving Devoted Husband Anakin.
I have made it to the Coruscant landing scene and am ALREADY pissed at Obi. That one little line says the world of difference between Anakin and Obi Wan/Jedi Order. He WOULD not leav Obi..would not leave him to an uncertian fate if he had the ablity to try and save him. He had no thought of saving himself and in fact was willing to put his life in jeopardy for him.
The thing that makes me mad is..would anyone have done that for him? Until Luke did he have ONE person that would have considered him someone important enough to them that they would have risked THIER life to try and save his? Luke had Han and  Leia and Chewie.. .even Lando. He had people that cared for him, helped him, people that he was important too. Who had Anakin's back?
