I never got out of my mind that Anakins chip, that prevented him from fleeing as a slave, had to be removed when he became Obi-Wans Padawan.
Because Obi-Wan maybe didn’t even know about it, and Anakin was one day just like “Master, what about my chip?”
And Obi-Wan would have been like: “Your what?”
“My slave-chip, master! I tried to find it, but never did. Can we remove it?”
So they go to the medics, find the chip, and Anakin gets a bit nervous. “Master can I hold your hand?”
Of course, he can. Anakin tries to be brave, and soon, the chip is out. His wound gets bandaged, and he smiles at his master. “Master, I am free now!”
And Obi-Wan just can’t, because oh, what has this boy been through? He hides his fright and smiles back at Anakin. “Yes, Anakin, you are. You are free.”
And you never will be unfree again, Obi-Wan swears to himself, while his Padawan is already happiliy chattering again.

SOBS, I NEED AN ENTIRE NOVEL OF LUKE AND LEIA AS SIBLINGS.
I APPRECIATE THAT THE MOVIES AND NOVELS GAVE US SOME INTERACTION
BUT LIKE I NEED AN ENTIRE NOVEL ABOUT LUKE AND LEIA INTERACTING ONCE THEY KNOW THEY’RE SIBLINGS.
It was obnoxious and completely unhelpful. So Leia reminded him, “You’re being obnoxious and completely unhelpful.”
“I also did it one-handed,” he added.
PEAK SIBLINGS WHILE ALSO DOING IT TO HELP TEACH ABOUT ANGER AND IMPATIENCE, I’M WEEPING AT HOW PERFECT THEY ARE.
“Then he had smiled, with that wide farm-boy grin that had stayed with him all the way up until the night of Ben’s betrayal.“
THANKS, I’M CRYING ABOUT LUKE SKYWALKER AND LEIA ORGANA AGAIN.

I’m not crying 😭
You will always be my sister.
“Marceline, is it just you and me in the wreckage of the world…?”
Yesterday my therapist used “triggered” in an actual medical context and for a second I honestly thought she was making fun of me before I remembered that it was still a word like. Actual doctors use and not just something shitty people say
