This is Obi-Wan Kenobi: A phenomenal pilot who doesn’t like to fly. A devastating warrior who’d rather not fight. A negotiator without peer who frankly prefers to sit alone in a quiet cave and meditate. Jedi Master. General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Member of the Jedi Council. He is respected throughout the Jedi Order for his insight as well as his warrior skill. He has become the hero of the next generation of Padawans; he is the Jedi their Masters hold up as a model. He is the being that the Council assigns to their most important missions. He is modest, centered, and always kind. He is the ultimate Jedi. It is characteristic of Obi-Wan that he is entirely unaware of this.

intrusive audio ads

new-xkit-extension:

If you’ve been active on tumblr lately, you may notice that they’ve started running a new type of ad in the right-hand sidebar unit. Specifically, there’s been an uptick in ads that auto-play loud audio, some of which are even un-mutable.

We’ve addressed this in Anti-Capitalism version 1.3.0, which adds a new option:

(small mea culpa: the naming here is slightly confusing. this will *always* remove the sidebar ad, even if it doesn’t happen to be one that plays audio, because we don’t have the ability to distinguish between them. the other difference is that it does it in a way that also takes care of the audio-visual component instead of just hiding the ad, like some adblockers have been doing)

let us know what you think! I’m probably going to be going to bed soon, but you can always reach us in our ask box, our support blog, or our live support chat. In general the dev team has less time to reply to asks nowadays because of both real-life obligations and the sheer quantity of asks we receive, so you’ll generally have a better time with the support chat, if you can catch one of us online. If nobody is online, you always can leave a message for us to read later. thanks for understanding!

(one last plug—If you’re interested in helping us run New XKit, for example by answering asks or helping other users with questions + problems, come stop by and introduce yourself! we don’t bite, we promise!)

He and Anakin met in the middle of the deserted street. During their years as Master and Padawan he’d done his best to break Anakin’s childish dependence on demonstrations of affection. He’d failed. And now, full of relief, he found himself reaching out to clasp his former student’s shoulder.

that’s not a demonstration of affection you repressed attached in-denial twat

“If anyone can, you can,” said Anakin. And because he was Anakin, and so tired, and had only ever pretended to learn that lesson of distance, gave [Obi-Wan] a swift embrace.

now that’s a demonstration of affection
