bb-8 starts picking up swears from r2 and poe is appalled.

#this is what im here for  #r2 and bb-8 rolling around the resistance base and insulting everyone in their way  #gossiping about everyone  #c3po following them like a distraught parent (via @quidditsch)

Imagine BB-8 rolling up to Rey and Poe like “beep beep beep guess what I just learned” like a small kid and saying “fuck” or something equally as startling for something as cute and important and both Rey and Poe look shocked and Poe’s jaw drops a little and Rey goes “where did you learn that!?” like that’s not something that is supposed to be in a military droid’s basic vernacular and it couldn’t have learned it from humans because most swears don’t compute into droid so it had to be a droid and the proud if scared beeping replies “R2-D2” and the next thing you know both Poe and Rey are running down the base after this ancient droid that’s screaming and beeping frantically like “IT WAS AN ACCIDENT I FUCKING SWEAR”

Luke and Leia dying of laughter in the background.

so if BB-8′s “a BB unit”, does that mean there’s a BB-1 through 7?

Does this mean there were scary stories on the flight deck pre- or post-mission with Poe and Black Squadron? Imagine Poe with a light-stick beneath his chin and a glint in his eye, kneeling to speak in a spooky voice to BB-8. 

“Hey, BB-8. Why is BB-6 afraid of BB-7?” 

An inquisitive whirr. 

“’Cause BB-7 ate 9!” 

“!!!!” BB-8 rolls back and forth in panic while Poe falls over laughing.

“It’s okay, buddy. I didn’t mean it literally! It’s just a joke!” (A joke??) “Yeah, a joke!” BB-8 gently zaps Poe in retribution and rolls away, the droid-equivalent of a walking off in a huff. 

“Ow, hey! Come on, BB-8, it was supposed to be funny!” 

BB-8 doesn’t speak to him for the rest of the day, so Poe goes on a mission around base asking any and everyone if they’ve seen any droids, and joins the squadron table at dinner looking exhausted but triumphant. BB-8 is with them. 

“Hey, BB-8, look!” He holds up a round, shrieking droid with a grin. “It’s BB-7!”

BB-8 beeps in alarm and hides behind the table leg while Poe gently explains that BB-7 is not really scary at all, see?

BB cautiously rolls out to investigate for itself. Cue gentle droid booping.

They become bosom buddies and roll everywhere together, collect the whole gang and then BB rolls up to Poe pre-flight sometime a week later, like ten minutes before take off. “BB-8, buddy where were you? we gotta go!” “!!” “what is it?” BB-8 is insistent.“!” “You wanna show me something? ok buddy but make it quick, it’s almost time to leave.”

BB-8 whistles and BB-6 rolls over in a panic, whirring. BB-8 whirrs at it and it whirrs back and all three of them turn towards BB-7 rolling determinedly along. BB-6 Ducks behind BB-8 as BB-7 rolls to a stop a few feet before reaching them. A smaller beep draws Poe’s attention to his feet where BB-9 sits, rocking back and forth in contentment. 

All three droids beep back the joke in binary.

Poe cries laughing and doesn’t stop until the General herself contacts him on comms to ask what him the hold up is.

Okay but consider: the droids.

The fact that they clearly, CLEARLY rehearsed this little show before showing off to Poe on the tarmac just before the flight

BB-8 is a very strict producer ok

lots of beeeeeeep!!! and whirrrr bleeep!!!s when the others got it wrong

“no it has to be THIS WAY” “this is how Poe told it!” “do it OVER.”

you have made repeated mention of Obi-Wan doing an insane swan dive through Bothawui’s orbit in a fighter. is this in one of the clone wars episodes because i cannot remember it and cannot find it.

deadcatwithaflamethrower:

Nope, this is pre-Clone Wars RE canon, but after the start of the war. I’ve never written the scene out specifically, but:

There’s a blockade around Bothawui–like, full true coverage blockade of the planet, not that weird singular location like in TPM. (OMG SPACE, GEORGE, A PLANET HAS MORE THAN ONE ENTRANCE AND EXIT POINT WTF–I mean uhm, sorry. *cough*)

There’s a two day engagement where they cannot break through this fucking blockade–they can barely make a dent in it. Everything they throw at it, from gunship to star destroyer, is being repelled.

Anakin gets this *fabulous* idea that if the big stuff is all getting nailed, he can put on an EVA suit with enough fuel to get him through the blockade. Gravity will take care of the rest of his descent because of his proximity to the planet. He’s tiny, weaponless, low tech–the droids will ignore him.

(When asked how he would handle the burn of re-entry, Anakin shrugs and says it can’t be worse than Tatooine in the middle of the afternoon.)

Anakin leaves before Obi-Wan finds out. Obi-Wan discovers what his Padawan is doing, drops everything and bolts for a fighter, because no, no, and also no, Anakin, NO. Flies out and covers Anakin’s descent by basically being the bigger shiny object that the droids are all now concentrating their fire on.

And that’s how Obi-Wan Kenobi did something that Anakin Skywalker had NOT been able to do–fly a fighter through that damned blockade–earning the respect of the entirety of 7th Sky because HOLY SHIT.

That’s also the story of how Obi-Wan discovered that he now really, really, REALLY fucking hates to fly. (That fighter had to be scrapped post flight, mostly because it was so torn up from getting through the blockade that Obi-Wan promptly crashed it.)

It’s also the day that the 501st decided Skywalker was theirs forever, because someone had to make sure that crazy little shit stayed alive, because HOLY FUCKING SHIT.

It also marks the very last occasion when the droid army kept their control stations separate from their main concentration of troops, because being de-powered mid-conflict was an embarrassing way to lose a battle. *Again.*

And now you all know the story of the first Battle of Bothawuii.

How much must Luke Skywalker be freaking out right now?

Can you imagine?

You are moping on your island of self-imposed exile, and then this girl shows up.

  • She’s flying your best friend’s ship. The ship that Han thought he lost for ever. The ship that was stolen and passed through so many hands that he was sure he’d never see it again. The same ship that took you away from home for the first time.
  • She’s accompanied by your personal droid. The droid you left behind and abandoned. The droid that C-3PO was sure would never be the same again.
  • She holds out her hand and she’s holding your father’s light saber. The sword you were sure was lost forever. The light saber that you dropped down a bottomless air shaft on a gas giant thirty years ago. The light saber you knew you would never see again.
  • You look up and you see her eyes. Maz Kanata says that if you live long enough, you see the same eyes looking out of different faces. The girl’s face is different, but those eyes are the same. You know those eyes. They’re the eyes you thought you’d never see again.

And that’s when you know it.

You’re screwed.

They say sometimes the Force works in mysterious ways. Sometimes, the Force will send you little signs. Subtle clues.

Other times, the Force will just beat you repeatedly over the head with a gigantic neon sign that says: “You can’t run away from your past anymore, Luke. I won’t let you. Look, here is your past come back to haunt you. Now deal with it.

You have no idea how much I adore this post with my whole being

I like the idea of the Force sending Luke little signs over the years that it’s time to return to his loved ones, gently increasing in intensity as he ignores them, until it finally gets fed up and shoves the events of Episode 7 into motion, finishing with a flourish of HERE’S YOUR NEW APPRENTICE, SPACE HOBO.

Aided and abetted by the ghost trio, I imagine. Especially since he did not look at all surprised.

Obi-Wan and Yoda sending him dreams and whispers for 15 years, before an exasperated Anakin pushed them aside “Excuse me, but you two are not very good at dealing with Skywalkers and have amply demonstrated that fact over the decades. We don’t do subtle. *appears giant-size over the sky* That’s it, Luke, we’re sending you all the things! So PULL YOUR SHIT TOGETHER, SON!!

evilqueenofgallifrey:

okay but Luke being gay would actually explain his interest in Leia A WHOLE LOT AND MAKES IT WAY LESS INCESTY

think about it

this boy is hella gay, like so so gay, he’s never been attracted to a girl in his life but maybe feels like he should, and then he meets Leia

he feels this connection, this pull to her, and because he’s never experienced attraction to a woman he thinks that this is what being attracted to girls feels like, when actually that’s not it at all, it’s just that his subconscious can sense that it’s his sister and that therefore she’s super important to him

gay Luke = sibling connection mistaken for attraction = LESS GROSS INCEST

ehliena:

Headcanon that Ahsoka keeps walking in on Obi-Wan and Anakin in compromising positions. Anakin keeps says that it isn’t what it looks like.

And Ahsoka knows that Anakin really wants it to be what it looks like.

Then one day she walks in on them again, and Anakin smirks and says: “this is totally what it looks like.”

alrightanakin:

My heart hurts when I think about Obi Wan taking Anakin on as his Padawan while still feeling resentment towards Anakin for usurping his position as Qui Gonn’s Padawan

He feels resentment towards Qui Gonn too (But it’s harder to be angry at someone who’s dead)
And Obi Wan knows he shouldn’t feel like this but he does so he keeps Anakin at a distance because he can’t get attached
Especially to this Pathetic LifeformTM

And poor little Anakin doesn’t know why Master Obi Wan won’t wake him up from his nightmares or give him a hug him on his way to classes or even smile at him
He’s homesick
Stuck on a new planet
A place where no one trusts him and none of the Jedi seem to want him there
And all of his survival instincts are telling him that he needs to latch onto Master Obi Wan because Master Obi Wan is his new caregiver 
But Obi Wan won’t let himself form anything beyond the most basic training bond with Anakin
Anakin tries to get closer to Obi Wan and Obi Wan keeps distancing himself from Anakin
Not showing him affection
Criticizing him
Only spending the bare minimum amount of time with his young apprentice 

About a year goes by and Anakin is lonely and tired and he doesn’t know what he’s doing wrong
He doesn’t know why the other kids at the Temple don’t like him 
He doesn’t understand why the Masters are so suspicious around him 
He’s so frustrated with his schooling because his teachers are so harsh even though he’s doing his best to learn the written languages and still keep up with his studies (it doesn’t matter that he can fluently speak 6 languages, he could barely write and that was a Bad Thing)
And he doesn’t know why Master Obi Wan doesn’t want him 
Why Master Obi Wan always makes Anakin feel like he’s a burden 

So he runs away

It takes Obi Wan longer than he’s comfortable admiting to realize that his almost 11 year old Padawan is missing
And not just lost-in-the-temple missing
But Missing
Gone. 

After an entire day and night of searching he finally finds his wayward Padawan
Trying to board a shuttle off planet
Trying to get to Naboo (because he’s pretty sure Padme at least liked him)

Anakin is uncharacteristically silent on the way back to the Temple while Obi Wan rattles off the mother of all lectures

And they get back to their quarters and Anakin just runs off and shuts the door behind him in tears because he’s just not good enough to be a Jedi and Master Obi Wan will never want him 
And he’s so scared that the Jedi will send him back to Tatooine and he’ll be forced into slavery again 

And when Obi Wan comes in to check on him, he can’t hold in his emotions anymore and he explodes

Yelling and crying, he tells Obi Wan how scared he is of Destiny and how none of the other padawans like him and how he’s not stupid and he’s trying really hard and he’s so scared that he’s going to be sent back to Tatooine because he’s not good enough and he doesn’t know why Obi Wan never spends any time with him and always seems to be disciplining him and he’s just so tired and he doesn’t understand what he’s doing wrong

Anakin Skywalker can count on one hand the number of times he’s seen Obi Wan Kenobi speechless

Obi Wan didn’t realize how much of an effect his apathy towards his Padawan would affect the child
And it wasn’t until he saw Anakin standing there at the shuttle station that he realized how much he cared about the pathetic lifeform entrusted to him

After Anakin’s sobs subside Obi Wan tries his best to actually talk to his Padawan and see what he can do about allaying a few of those fears 

And as they sat there, Anakin nestled in Obi Wan’s lap, they both couldn’t help but think that they would be okay

Everything would be okay

I have a great need for happy headcanons for Initiates and Padawans. please help.

deadcatwithaflamethrower:

You asked for that and I immediately started thinking about ones that ended in SADNESS.  Brain, they did not ask for sad. They asked for NICE THINGS.

*takes a breath*  NICE THINGS, SELF:

Initiates
are actually carefully matched for their clan groups. The Jedi can
blither all they like about the Code and no Attachments (until it’s
judged you can handle what it would mean to lose that Attachment)
but Initiate clans are basically big sibling clusters of happy kids.
They technically all have their own sleeping areas and storage, but Tahl
and Qui-Gon were not the only Initiates who spent most of their nights
sharing a bed. Often it’s not just a pair, but three or four.

The
18th generation of the Kuzilli Clan shoved all of their platform beds
together in a cluster and slept in a big pile. Their teaching Master
tried to discourage this behavior to a certain extent–missions would
not lead to sleeping piles, and there would be no mass sleeping piles
once they were taken as Padawans or went into their respective
Corps–but that group of Initiates refused to sleep individually, and
eventually their Master gave up. (And started sleeping in the pile, too,
because why not.)

Padawans have their own dorm rooms they can
choose to reside in, or they can reside with their Masters. A Padawan
choosing to stay with their Master is often an indicator of how strong
the Master-Padawan bond is between them.

Ahsoka kept her own dorm,
but it wasn’t because of a lack of strength in her bond with Anakin so
much as Anakin never had time to move the hell out of his Padawan room, and thus there were no quarters for her to move into.

Ahsoka
only uses her dorm room when Anakin and Obi-Wan aren’t in-Temple. If
they are, she’s sleeping on their couch if she can pry Obi-Wan off of
it. (She usually gives up and just goes to sleep in Obi-Wan’s bed. What
the hell is with that couch? It’s not that comfortable.

She
refuses to sleep in the same room as Anakin. He snores, and no amount of
beating him in the face with a pillow will make him stop.)

I don’t want a Calrissian daughter. No. That will not do… I WANT A GANG OF DAUGHTERS. CALRISSIAN, SMOOTH TALKING, SAAVY BUSINESSWOMEN. CLOUD CITY QUEENS. Imagine Lando with like, five daughters. The Galaxy isn’t ready…

Amandla Stenberg, Samira Wiley, Nicole Beharie, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Freema Agyeman as Lando Calrissian’s five daughters.

I can even see it…

Amandla is the dreamer/artist/architect? The baby, obviously. Unplanned, obviously.

Samira is the explorer, the surveyor, the speed racer, the occasional smuggler (Daddy doesn’t know, yet), middle child.

Nicole is the party girl, nocturnal, the card player, closest resemblance to their mother, fourth born, force sensitive.

Gugu is the CFO, the natural moneymaker, future politician, Daddy’s girl, the oldest.

Freema is the engineer, the mechanic, the one who keeps Samira flying fast, second born.
