The other Jedi heritage line: Mace Windu’s legacy continues.
imagine the Jedi finding like, holonet fansites about them.
People who freak out and take pictures whenever they see a jedi
people who have whole worlds of wildly inaccurate headcanons about Jedi and certain Jedi whose pictures of various everyday heroics have become holonet memes
people who make plastoid lightsaber props
in the clone wars, whole fansites and blogs dedicated solely to Kenobi and Skywalker
Obi-Wan finds them and is scandalized
Anakin finds them and has the time of his life – he actual starts his own blog anonymously, which he updates with really good photos and funny, OOC posts about himself and Obi-Wan (((but liek how does he get those photos???/?? like kriff’s sake NO one KNEOWS)))
Master Yoda follows this blog religiously
Literally everyone in the Temple knows about Anakin’s blog except for Obi-Wan
Mace Windu trolls all of the comments section. The kicker? He does so as himself, but no one believes him, everyone thinks he’s a fan that somehow got the username TheRealMaceWindu
Palpatine follows Anakin’s blog, but does not know that it is anakin. He thinks it is some very distractible, annoying fanboy.
When the generals aren’t watching, the clones pick up all the dime store novels based on the Jedi and snigger to themselves in the barracks at the ridiculous sterotypes and misrepresentations – especially when Kenobi is made into a middle-aged heart throb.
Eventually, Anakin grows lax with his anonymity and starts his own blog as himself – it becomes one of the most popular blogs in the republic within a matter of weeks.
He posts a lot about Obi-Wan, only because he knows he will hate it. Obi-Wan’s consistent death glares at the camera have inspired their own meme.
Ahsoka once hacked Anakin’s blog and posted pictures of him making weird faces
Awkward funny Jedi online shenanigans
#Anakin posting a shirtless picture of Obi wan straight out of the shower#and Obi wan is so confused because suddenly he’s super popular with the people who usually goes for Anakin and such#there are several master Kenobi’s muscles appreciation blogs popping up everywhere#there may also be some memes#aggressive negotiator in the sheets
Oh my gosh
#THE CLONES STARTING THEIR OWN BLOGS ABOUT THEIR GENERALS #PUTTING UP PHOTOS AND VIDEOS OF THE RIDICULOUS SHENANIGANS THEY GET UP TO #THEY WAGE WAR OVER WHO’S THE BEST #SUDDENLY THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENT SHIPS SPRINGING UP EVERYWHERE #THE 501ST & 212TH SHARE A BLOG #IT’S BASICALLY FULL OF BTS JEDI SASS AND SARCASM#AND SPAWNS SO MANY MEMES. #REX DOES A HILARIOUS WILDLIFE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE TWO JEDI CO PARENTING THEIR ADOPTED DAUGHTER
I take no responsibility:
so @grand-duc hit what is possibly my FAVORITE THING about the “Mace Windu unfucks the timeline” concept with the following tags: #ESPECIALLY IF AFTER TPM MACE GOES #“SHIT #I’M THE PARENTAL FIGURE OF A YOUNGLING #A VERY FRAGILE YOUNGLING #THAT I HAVE TO TREAT CAREFULLY AND NOT NECESSARILY IN A TRADITIONAL JEDI MANNER #KNOWING THE FUTURE IS ONE THING #KNOWING HOW TO UNFUCK THE FUTURE IS ANOTHER
because YES, Anakin Skywalker absolutely CANNOT BE RAISED LIKE A NORMAL JEDI. He remembers his mother! He LOVES his mother! He has crisis-forged emotional attachments to people who know NOTHING about the Force or the Jedi code, and he knows absolutely nothing about life in the temple while simultaneously knowing a FUCKTON more about life outside it than a normal nine year-old would be expected to handle. He has pride and fear and DRASTICALLY SKEWED EMOTIONAL NEEDS, compared to what any traditionally-educated crechemaster or instructor is used to handling in their typical baby Jedi.
(and yeah we gotta read-more this one, I guess, sorry mobile users :X)
Goodbye old friend.
I need a time travel AU where Mace Windu goes back p i s s e d and decides the best way to fix the future is to chaperone the Skywalker brat on as many missions as possible to keep him from fucking up royally again. So that whole sequence in AotC with Padmé on Naboo, Mace is there cockblocking the hell out of Anakin. “grow the f up skywalker, it’s just sand.”
At first Anakin is really angry and bitter about Mace ruining his game, but then he gets his vision about his mom, and Mace goes with them too and ends up having to comfort the brat after his mom dies, inadvertently helping Anakin from being tempted by the Dark Side.
After that, Anakin is still kind of wary but appreciates Mace a lot more and makes Mace his confidant about Padmé, his insecurities about being the Chosen One, and even his weird, budding homoerotic feelings towards Obi-Wan, which he insists is not simply puberty. And Mace is like “oh eff, I did not sign up for this hormonal shit-storm" but he has no choice but to endure it because he knows what would happen if Anakin is left to deal with his emotions alone.
So they end up having this awkward friendship, and they save Obi-Wan on Ryloth together later on, where Anakin confesses to Obi-Wan about his feelings and Obi-Wan is like ????? So Obi-Wan ends up going to Mace as well about his internal conflicts towards his former Padawan, and Mace is like “kenobi pls, can u not?” But Obi-Wan is repressed af and needs to be coddled almost as much as the Skywalker brat, so Mace sucks it up and tells himself it’s for the good of the galaxy. So in a sense, he helps Obikin happen.
And in RotS, they work together to stop Palpatine, and everyone is happy and alive. Both Anidala and Obikin survive, and Mace just watches from afar, thinking this is such a blatant disregard of the Code, but at least it’s better than having his hand severed and then being tossed out the window while the Sith overruns the Jedi.
Mace is the true hero.
…This is exactly how this scene played out, right?
(In case it wasn’t obvious, Mace Windu/Nick Fury parody with Qui-Gon Jinn line stealing)
You were right about me.
