Padawan Era – Master Windu & Anakin
After spending two years with the Initiates glued to Obi-Wan’s side, Anakin is chosen as Padawan by Master Windu, who had once been most vocal in objecting to Anakin’s presence in the Order. While the boy still has much to learn, Mace now sees great potential Anakin, impressed by his progress in adapting to the Jedi way. Anakin’s relative comfort with the Jedi is no doubt heavily influenced by his friendships with his peers, namely Garen Muln and Quinlan Vox, but mostly his increasingly deep bond with Obi-Wan, a fellow Initiate only two years his senior.
Anakin is still a bit wary of adult authority figures despite Obi-Wan’s insistence that they only want to help. He is especially careful around men, who he saw abuse his mother too many times on Tatooine. While Anakin deeply respects Master Windu and is more than a little awed to be chosen as his apprentice, he is also unsure of the Councilor’s intentions.
Mace’s former Padawan, Depa Billaba, helps break the ice. Anakin finds it much easier to trust her, unintentionally overlapping her reassuring presence with that of his mother’s. She becomes his closest confidant after Obi-Wan while he slowly learns to open up to his new Master, who patiently waits until he can earn Anakin’s trust.

they’ve been dating for awhile but not actually engaged so enjolras takes that opportunity to drop to one knee and be like “feuilly, think of the tax benefits” and then they eat. so much. cake. and they somehow sneak some out to save for later
ahhh my friend yes thank you
feuilly is MORTIFIED because ‘wait what?’ he did not expect Enjolras to do this? at all? but enjolras is grinning and Feuilly can never say no to cakes, especially the ones with funfetti sprinkled on top.
(also the tax benefits, of course. plus they already take care of a kitten together, isn’t that what married life is?)
and they hold hands the entire time. and the cakes are really really good.
and in the middle this lady starts talking to them like ‘oh, you two look so happy together, you look like you’re glowing! I’m sure you’ll have a long and happy marriage, when is the date, if you don’t mind me asking?’
and feuilly kinda wants to admit enjolras looks like he’s glowing always, and feuilly just really really likes the cake actually he has sparkly sprinkles all over his hands and face that would be the glow.
it takes him a few hours to process what actually happened. and that he’s engaged? to enjolras?
(he cries a little when they get home. so they eat the leftover cake for dinner and talk about if they want an actual wedding and in the end it’s just a tiny thing, with their friends, not even formal dress or anything. but there’s definitely a cake from that store.)

Oh my gosh, did Gavroche snatch the hat right off Courfeyrac’s head? Or did a trick of the wind just roll it into his path?
It’s really great how clearly some of these are from a specific scene! And your character designs seem to have become even more fluid!
