#the intimacy of this scene is insane first of all the nuances of their body language anakin allows himself so much vulnerability #with the way he falls into himself the way his body fidgets the way he’s disarming in admittance and openness #while obi wan stands with his arms crossed sill protecting himself from this boy from almost THE ASSAULT of emotions he constantly emits #mostly from this silent plea anakin radiates with i trust you with my heart with my pain with my weakness with my life what the hell even #is this entire setting they are in the middle of guard shift with situation tense and anakin just stands on the balcony soaks up the pulse o #of life of coruscant thinks about tatooine how he’s glad he is not there and yet there is gape inside him missing freedom he felt there WHAT #A PARADOX missing his mother and obi wan just watches him (like how many times does it happen) i want to understand this #not be afraid of this i want to let you in the way you let everything in but i’m terrified and then there are words and obi wan remains #shielded in body but he lets words of encouragement slip it’s not him repeating cliches for a long time i thought it is and anakin #probably reads it this way not another lecture please just be in this pain with me don’t repeat the slogans at me #we are better than this but obi wan was there in this pain in this insecurity in this anxiety how many times did he dream about qui gon #or maybe life he never had but it was there million years ago forgotten and ripped from him? but he learned #to tame this longing this guilt this pain so he offers him this peek into his own vulnerability dreams pass in time like mine did #please that’s all i have all i can give you BUT THE FACT HE NOTICES HE KNOWS of anakin’s struggle YOU LOOK TIRED jesus it’s as close to #admitting to him out loud I SEE YOU I CARE I WANT TO BE THERE AND LET YOU KNOW ALL OF THIS and then BECAUSE OF YOUR MOTHER #he heard him how many times he heard him scream for her and he didn’t go there to hold him keep him whole #maybe he sent all the comfort and consolation he can muster through force but he did not dare to go there and touch #because there would be no return from this as if he’s already not attached doesn’t care doesn’t love him ABSOLUTELY hahah #p.S. also there is no such thing as TOO MUCH SLOW MOTION when this scene is concerned tbh hehe (via watson-sighs-and-tuts)
