I鈥檓 still angry about this (and so many other uncalled things) 馃槫
#canes lb#andrei svechnikov#carolina hurricanes#honestly things like this make me so angry#like every game there are at least 4 or 5 situations like this where players from opposing teams cross check svech and don鈥檛 get called for#it while svech gets called for every stick infraction so how is this supposed to make him feel#and don鈥檛 get me wrong i鈥檓 not mad at any specific players for doing this when they get away with it because it鈥檚 the refs job to tell them#they can鈥檛 do that and the refs just don鈥檛 so the players play#and this shows how much the league cares about safety and keeping the stars healthy (and svech is a star player)#and i know worse things happen and don鈥檛 get called either and a cross check like that might not seem important but if it happens twice or 3#times or 4 times every game it can lead to some recurring problems that no one notices because it鈥檚 just a little tweak so he plays through#it and then suddenly one time he gets a serious injury from a regular cross check because it all adds up#and if anyone agrees with people on twitter saying canes need to add some muscle and this wouldn鈥檛 happen if someone stood up for svech and#that slavin and hamilton clearly don鈥檛 care about svech because they didn鈥檛 do anything about it do you think starting a scrap and taking a#penalty for it and putting your team on pk is what fixes this problem? how#the other team doesn鈥檛 have a reason not to cross check a player like svech if someone from the canes initiates a fight and gets penalized#for it because that gets them a power play so they either get svech rattled and banged up enough for him to not play 100% or they get a pp#out of it so tell me why wouldn鈥檛 they continue to do this as long as it works#if refs called those penalties players wouldn鈥檛 do that so often#i鈥檓 sure this applies to so many other talented players as well svech isn鈥檛 the only one getting cross checked left and right#anyway this has been a rant#sorry for going off#leaving it in tags so you don鈥檛 have to read it all#hope you鈥檙e all well 馃挄馃挄

the concept of corruption to the dark side being a visible affliction is so fucking cool to me? like, you not only have the yellow eyes, you have an absolutely haggard聽look. in rots anakin looks half dead after marching on the temple due to the undereye bags he鈥檚 sporting. in the mortis arc it鈥檚 even more severe - ahsoka has not only yellow, tired eyes, but also black veins, as if she鈥檚 rotting from the inside out. sidious is the most extreme example, with how his continued usage of the dark side has slowly corrupted his body until he鈥檚 greatly aged. all of these are great examples of why the jedi view the dark side as toxic. aside from the obvious moral aspects, it鈥檚 frankly a horrible idea to immerse yourself in the darkside for extended periods of time because it鈥檚 literally killing you. i know the eu goes more into depth with how the dark side corrupts not only the spirit but also the body, but i wish it was explored better in current canon because i feel like there鈥檚 a lot of missed opportunities when it comes to this. it鈥檚 a brilliant way to limit the power levels of certain characters to keep them from being op in the narrative (i鈥檓 looking at you, palpatine from tros) without completely nerfing them. there鈥檚 a trade off - power for a shortened lifespan

Wishbone - Richard Siken
You saved my life he says I owe you everything. You don鈥檛, I say, you don鈥檛 owe me squat, let鈥檚 just get going, let鈥檚 just get gone, but he鈥檚 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 relentless, keeps saying I owe you, says Your shoes are filling with your own damn blood, you must want something, just tell me, and it鈥檚 yours. 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽But I can鈥檛 look at him, can hardly speak, I took the bullet for all the wrong reasons, I鈥檇 just as soon kill you myself, I say. You keep saying I owe you, I owe鈥ut you say the same thing every time. 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽Let鈥檚 not talk about it, let鈥檚 just not talk. Not because I don鈥檛 believe it, not because I want it any different, but I鈥檓 always saving and you鈥檙e always owing and I鈥檓 tired of asking to settle the debt. 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽Don鈥檛 bother. You never mean it anyway, not really, and it only makes me that much more ashamed. There鈥檚 only one thing I want, don鈥檛 make me say it, just get me bandages, I鈥檓 bleeding, 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽I鈥檓 not just making conversation. There鈥檚 smashed glass glittering everywhere like stars. It鈥檚 a Western, Henry, it鈥檚 a downright shoot-em-up. We鈥檝e made a graveyard out of the bone white afternoon. 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽It鈥檚 another wrong-man-dies scenario and we keep doing it, Henry, keep saying until we get it right鈥 but we always win and we never quit, see, we鈥檝e won again, here we are at the place 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽where I get to beg for it where I get to say Please, for just one night, will you lay down next to me, we can leave our clothes on, we can stay all buttoned up? 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽or will I say Roll over and let me fuck you till you puke, Henry, you owe me this much, you can indulge me this at least, can鈥檛 you? but we both know how it goes. I say I want you inside me and you hold my head underwater, I say聽 I want you inside me and you split me open with a knife. I鈥檓 battling monsters, half-monkey, half-tarantula, I鈥檓 pulling you out of the burning buildings and you say I鈥檒l give you anything. 聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽But you never come through. Give me bullet power.

The secret network out there鈥o grab me?馃槵
The Universe out there is what resides in me. If I believe I am made out of star dust, a kaleidoscope of multicoloured particles, well, the world out there is a reflection of my beliefs.
This reflection here, is more than multi coloured particles dancing tango in the space. It鈥檚 about the constant stream energies that interlink each one with others, embedding us in a complex matrix and trapping us in our creation of energy.
Non of this is scientifically proven. Rather they are my absorptions from philosophy, faith, spirituality, bit of science and reflection. Right now I believe these ring true to me, so shareworthy.
I am constantly fascinated by the secrets humans keep to themselves and struggle with. Principally, 鈥楤ut, why did it happen to me?鈥. The evolved ones accept and move on. They face it, deal with it and set off on missions of their own. Some say time will tell. Some say it鈥檚 a part of a plan. Some say it is karma.
Nevertheless, I have never been satisfied with incomplete answers. Juvenile it may seem, I like to persist in the insatiable pursuit of getting to the bottom. And, here is my take on a nugget of the mystery of human existence.
My realisation is that we become what we are. The actions, the intentions and causation they result in give rise to create the future one lives in. In this lifetime, the layout of existence seems to be the sum of output of some cosmic super computer. How else could one explain a 鈥榤oment鈥 or 鈥榩hase of moments鈥 that completely changed the trajectory of life? How would one explain encounters/losses/experiences, that break or make one, questioning existence and the programming one received as a naive sweet summer child.
This super computer to me is what others call, in various connotations, God, karma, power of the Universe etc. A more ethereal explanation to a very human way of describing the phenomenon in the modern world slang.
So, yah, this energy is so potent it keeps track of the choices one makes, traps the subject in the energy the subject A emits/creates, and directs the traffic of the energies of other subjects around or accross the subject A鈥檚 energy grid. So efficient and fool proof is this cosmic super power, even if subject A and subject B intentionally want to align, if it isn鈥檛 written in the precise power codes of the ultimate energy, the circumstance will definitely dictate otherwise.
It鈥檚 equally so mysterious, that this energy maintains itself at a such high level, that its working is a big mystery to the little universe in the mind of subject A. Yet, equally this energy is benign in pointing directions, if only subject A stops to see the signs and is attentive to the fluttering glass butterflies of life.
Conversations in stillness of the mind, offers insights if only one taps to the sacredness of the soul and existence. Justice rings true when one delves into the teachings this energy offers, but benign it is, when subject A accepts its teachings with grace.
Compassion, humility, love, forgiveness, virtue, truthfulness and core teachings of any religion/philosophy (devoided of indoctrination) is found in the core of this force of energy. And 鈥楯USTICE鈥 in capital. It teaches subject A to respect the unknow, and through that the workings of the Universe and fellow sentient beings.
Most importantly, it also teaches detachment. That the Universe does not follow the laws of the mini Universe in the limited mind of subject A. Accept and change the relationship with what鈥檚 out there or wallow in the misery of unyeilding dreams.
Simply, this power tells to quieten the mind to its chatter it learnt from listening to the worldly parameters of existence. It tells to stick to the basics of an exsitence of loving kindness to oneself and the world out there.
The lessons that are never ending if only one stops to listen鈥
Well, I wanted to share this because I deeply felt about this. My experiences and learnings spoke to my heart and my brain interpretted it thus.
Hope you enjoyed it!
Love, light and bliss!鉂

A rant, because, the hilarity
I think everyone is aware to some degree or another of this writer in the 鈥榮essrin鈥 fandom, who has actually been an anti/fancop all along. You know, the one with the big ego, typical white American Karen in her 30s, mediocre writing if you鈥檙e being tremendously indulgent but thinks she鈥檚 invented the wheel, that kind of thing, username starts with E, condescendingly tells other people how and what to write despite the fact that she writes abusive stuff, harassed an artist, tokenizes POC, a healthy dose of terfery and internalized misogyny, all that good stuff you can expect from fancops really.
As far as I鈥檓 concerned I sniffed her out from the first few times I鈥檝e seen her around but not everyone can recognize these things to the same extent, but lo and behold, now that Yashahime happened she has finally embraced the fact that she鈥檚 an anti and keeps talking about how Sunrise made Rin too young/little whatever,聽鈥淪essrin is pedo ship ewew鈥, the standard (oh, and how the company are awful writers and that she would have done so much better because she鈥檚 so smart and accomplished and has the right morals鈩 teehee) - while somehow still trying to maintain a last foot of presence and influence in the fandom because (*cough* clout) she鈥檚 an聽鈥渁dult Rin shipper鈥 and聽鈥渟hippers like her have no voice鈥.
First of all, excuse me, but shipping adult Rin is like... the usual default, you are not oppressed for shipping what鈥檚 the standard shipped version of the ship bro, people who ship loli (like me) are few and far between and we usually don鈥檛 mention it, either for safety reasons, or because it鈥檚 not a relevant detail. Like imagine acting like just because a handful of people might like that aspect too, that suddenly you have no space for your own stuff when that鈥檚 what the most content created in this fandom is anyway. We must be some hella powerful fuckers if a tiny number of us can get you so pressed ROFL.
Second of all, she acts like she鈥檚 oppressed when all she was ever told was聽鈥渓oli/shota doesn鈥檛 make people pedos鈥 which is discernible to anyone in possession of a brain. Don鈥檛 compare people to predators over cartoon ships, don鈥檛 equate a niche hobby to horrific acts they have nothing to do with, those are all common sense things for people possessing common sense.
Why act like you were told something revolutionary that somehow silenced and offended you, when it鈥檚... just common sense... fiction doesn鈥檛 breed abusers or predators, there鈥檚 no 鈥渘ormalizing鈥 anything unless you have the comprehension abilities of a roasted jellyfish and cannot tell what is and isn鈥檛 normal, or assume that everyone else around you is that stupid and that they wouldn鈥檛 be able to discern on their own (which btw is recurring misogynistic bs from the 1800-1900s, cuz allowing women emancipation suddenly meant that 鈥渙mg what if they can鈥檛 tell the fiction they read isn鈥檛 real :O鈥)
Speaking of normalizing, so this lady has been rubbing off each and every anti to get in their good graces and now she鈥檚 besties with the dumbest of them all, you know the one, the one who enacts censorship and silencing while having the profile picture of a rock idol from back when rock meant freedom of expression - a rock star that I鈥檇 bet anything would whack them with a stick if they knew the sort of rhetoric this person is spreading with his face but alas. And now miss E the trash writer was thanking the dumbo because they learned from them how to聽鈥渕ess with people鈥檚 heads whenever they see those pedophiles鈥. PFFFFFFFFFFFFF
Imagine normalizing and throwing around a term so much you absolutely lose all notion of the actual danger it represents. Like assuming you鈥檝e deluded yourself into thinking people playing with pixels makes them predators, assuming you鈥檝e deluded yourself into thinking all shippers you don鈥檛 agree with because聽鈥測ou don鈥檛 have a voice鈥, that is, people who actually enjoy a show where you don鈥檛 - are pedos, imagine being like聽鈥淚 perceive you as an actual threat to society but somehow聽鈥渕essing with your head鈥 is the appropriate response, as opposed to potentially contacting some authorities and preventing victims like I claim I wanna do鈥.
Also just imagine plain being proud of like, being a harasser, proud of deliberately 鈥渕essing with people鈥檚 heads鈥 and trying to hurt them.
LMFAO all of this is DERANGED.
This was, of course, bypassing the fact that there are no pedos anywhere, and I repeat and will repeat as many times as I need, gods above, what people like to do with fake characters that don鈥檛 fucking exist does not make them anything and whatever fictive dynamics gets them excited (for whatever fucking reason because it鈥檚 their business, not yours) will never tell you anything about whether they hurt real people or not. What the fuck.

Some strange dreams I cannot explain
Dream #1: I鈥檓 standing outside on the porch of our house getting some fresh air at night before I go to bed when I see our elderly neighbor Kate walking down the sidewalk with her walker. I wave to her, she waves to me. I asked her where she was going and she said she was going to the store to get more potatoes for our yard. Lo and behold, I look down and see our front yard full of peeled, sliced, uncooked potatoes. She also had a red backpack that said 鈥淏.B.Y.鈥 I thought, 鈥淗uh. I never pegged Kate for a Star Wars fan.鈥 And then I realized BBY didn鈥檛 stand for Before Battle of Yavin but Baba Yaga. Her broom was sticking out of her backpack and I realized her walker was her mortar and pestle disguised AS a walker. I go back inside only to find myself not in our house with my parents but in a haunted apartment with four roommates.
Dream #2: I was dating a girl who looked like Amy Jo Johnson (Pink Power Ranger) and her name was Chelsea. Her creepy incel stalker ex who looked like Robert Pattinson was so angry and bitter he was throwing plates, bowls, glasses, cups, and mugs inside a church, breaking every single one of them. At one point in the dream, I catch my reflection in the mirror in our hall and 鈥渟ee鈥 that I鈥檓 wearing a Revolutionary War era Hessian uniform and that I had no head, which is super weird being able to see anything when I had no head.
Dream #3: I go back home to the Philippines to retake my high school math classes because, apparently, I didn鈥檛 pass a single math class. So I go home to the Philippines, enroll at my old high school, and embarrassingly show up for the first day of classes. The classroom was on the second floor, and when I got there, there was a foot long gap in front of the door and you had to be careful or you鈥檇 fall through and die. Thankfully, I make it inside with one jump and close the door behind me. And then there was this manananggal on the roof of the school trying to get in because my teacher, Ms. Santos (who never dated or married) was pregnant.

Technical Specifications of Drone X Pro
The Drone X Pro is a lightweight quadcopter drone that is consummately created for novices, veteran and master photographic artists, and movie producers. The gadget empowers you to catch flying perspective pictures and videos impeccably. Its phenomenal cameras catch marvelous pictures and recordings for you.
The drone's plan and model stick out and will draw in you while shopping in a drone store. It arrives in a smooth and exquisite look that makes it very tasteful above different drones in a similar value range. The Drone X Pro has a standard element called the board-gyro that holds the height and lifts its security when it's in real life.
Tumblr media
Technical specifications
As prior referenced, the Drone X master has frantic specialized highlights that make it novel. I will feature and talk about a portion of the expanded functionalities that the Drone X master offers, and that will demonstrate that it is the best drone for photography on the lookout.
Camera
The Drone X Pro camera may not be comparable to different cameras in other costly drones on the lookout, yet it is awesome at its reach. It accompanies an amazing fair camera that catches charming shots. Furnished with a FOV of 120, the 720-pixel camera is fit for taking recordings from a wide scope of points. The point range is flexible from 0 to 90 for amazing aeronautical shooting. The FPV drone highlights that empower you to transfer live recordings and pictures into your telephone while the drone is as yet in procedure on the air. Greater, the drone's camera has an all-encompassing mode that permits you to take 360 degrees photographs with simply a solitary snap.
Movability
The Drone X Pro is amazingly lightweight and versatile. It is handily collapsed up to fit in a negligible space, and subsequently, you can heft it around absent a lot of battle. This is not normal for other greater drones that occupy critical room and are upsetting to move around with.
Battery life
The battery life and the resulting flight season of the Drone X Pro are very noteworthy. Contrasted with other greater and more costly drones, the flight time is more limited; it is awesome its reach. The Drone X star battery ensures a long drape time on the air for you to achieve all your shooting necessities and requirements.
Toughness
The Drone X Pro is comprised of a sturdy and intense case to make keep going long. Its collapsing propellers are made of a powerful and tough development that empowers them not to break when it collides with obstructions. The outside packaging is produced using an astonishingly tough material that forestalls harms during conflicts with hard articles.

鈥楾he Book of Lost Friends鈥 Book Review
Our story starts out in Louisiana in the year of 1875. Lavinia is the daughter of a plantation owner, her half, illegitimate sister is Juneau Jane, and then lastly there is Hannie who is the former slave of Lavinia. The three have set out on a quest that sends them to the wild frontier of Texas. Lavinia鈥檚 father has gone missing and they have to find out who the plantation and other lands that the Gosset family owns, will pass down to.
In 1987, the same Louisiana town, Benny Silva has moved in as a first year teacher. From living all over the United States she has a hard time understanding how hard the lives are of her students in this poor southern town. She tries to connect them all with the history of the old planation right in their hometown.
I connected more with Hannie as a character than I did with Benny which is kind of funny as a I live in a time closer to Benny鈥檚 but it might be because I am closer in age with Hannie than I am Benny. I just felt like the 1875 chapters had so much more emotion to them. I really cared about what would happen to all of the characters. They all developed and changed throughout the novel. That鈥檚 not to say that our more modern counterparts were dull, they were absolutely well written as well.
America was at a really awkward stage at this point in history. Well, maybe the whole world was. Technology was rapidly being invented and changing as we had the industrial revolution take way in cities, the old world was becoming the modern world. In America, however, we were just getting out of a civil war. Tensions were still looming (and still are, if you ask me.) and it was not necessarily a safe place, especially for three female travelers like we see here. No one really writes in this time period, at least in American history, you will find a ton of books set in England during this time period but that is a different story. I really think this is an interesting time in our history and that it should be written about more, I applaud Lisa Wingate for doing so.
As I talked about the characters, the plot had a different impact on me. I preferred Benny鈥檚 plot to Hannie鈥檚. I think it was just because the digging and the researching of Augustine, Louisiana鈥檚 history. As most of you know, I love to research the history of my local area and my family. The plot with Hannie however is powerful and one that I will not forget, it just made me so emotional, this whole book made me feel that way, especially at the very end. Just seeing the stories of different people and knowing that people in real life lived lives so similar to these characters, it breaks my heart. One of the main plots is that slavery separated so many families, mother鈥檚 from their young children, and just tearing these families apart. It is so hard to put into words how it feels to read that and to know that it is not fiction. This book really opens the eyes of the reader to the history of our country and that we cannot change the past but we can make the future better so we do not go back and make those same mistakes again.
I did not want to put this book down, I actually had my biggest reading day of the month, around 150 pages read. I was wanting to know so bad how the two plots would really connect. If you are a fan of ancestry, history, and even the game Red Dead Redemption, then you will enjoy this book. However, I think that everyone needs to pick up this book. It is so powerful and moving. It will definitely stick with the reader. I am so glad that I picked up this book on a whim at Target. I can only hope that you will pick up 鈥楾he Book of Lost Friends鈥.
5 out of 5 stars.

It is so hard to put into words how it feels to read that and to know that it is not fiction. This book really opens the eyes of the reader to the history of our country and that we cannot change the past but we can make the future better so we do not go back and make those same mistakes again.
I did not want to put this book down, I actually had my biggest reading day of the month, around 150 pages read. I was wanting to know so bad how the two plots would really connect. If you are a fan of ancestry, history, and even the game Red Dead Redemption, then you will enjoy this book. However, I think that everyone needs to pick up this book. It is so powerful and moving. It will definitely stick with the reader. I am so glad that I picked up this book on a whim at Target. I can only hope that you will pick up 鈥楾he Book of Lost Friends鈥.
5 out of 5 stars.

song number 42, cause i can't do any funny number and it's close to 420
42) Dying In LA - P*nic! At The Disco
ah yes, the song about Leon鈥檚 big dreams and how he鈥檒l never see those, here we go:
The moment you arrived, they built you up The sun was in your eyes, you couldn't believe it Riches all around, you're walking Stars are on the ground, you start to believe it
So yeah, that whole first verse is specifically about Hollywood and the聽鈥渟tars are on the ground鈥 is quite literal in that sense, but the way it applies to Leon is that from the moment people began to notice his talent, they always said he鈥檇 do great things and all that, the typical things people say to talented children, and the line about the stars is used in a celebrity sense, as in when he鈥檚 at Hope鈥檚 Peak, he鈥檚 walking among mostly well-known people, some of which are almost incomparable celebrities like Sayaka or Byakuya.
Every face along the boulevard Is a dreamer just like you You looked at death in a tarot card And you saw what you had to do
The first two lines there describe how every person he sees 鈥渙n the boulevard鈥 aka at Hope鈥檚 Peak is someone with big dreams and goals and how they鈥檙e pretty much destined for success, just like he鈥檚 supposed to be. As for the tarot card line, I鈥檓 no expert on that so this is mostly from a Google search, the Death tarot card聽"symbolizes the end of a major phase or aspect of your life that you realizes is no longer serving you, opening up the possibility of something far more valuable and essential", so that perfectly aligns with how his natural talent just isn鈥檛 cutting it anymore and how music is his real passion.
Nights at the chateau, trapped in your sunset bungalow You couldn't escape it, yeah Drink of paradise, they told you to put your blood on ice You're not gonna make it
Skipping the chorus for a moment, the second verse mentions being聽鈥渢rapped鈥 in a chateau ( a very expensive one mind you, so it should feel luxurious yet it doesn鈥檛 ), and that followed up by not being able to escape describes Leon鈥檚 struggle with feeling like he鈥檚 trapped in a luxurious prison. And when people often tell him he won鈥檛 make it in music or that he should stick to what his talent actually is, it makes him feel like maybe he shouldn鈥檛 have accepted the invitation in the first place.
But nobody knows you now, when you're dying in LA And nobody owes you now, when you're dying in LA When you're dying in LA, when you're dying in LA The power, the power, the power Oh, the power, the power, the power Of LA
The original message is about not reaching goals and ending up unsuccessful, which not only fits, but it鈥檚 also a bit more literal. Hope鈥檚 Peak isn鈥檛 in Los Angeles of all places, but he does in fact die in a more compact equivalent of it, so there鈥檚 where that matches up.
Also, I wanna point out how I can tie this to his execution as well, because that first line refers to how people think of him as the baseball star and not聽 as a musician like he wants. So since his death is entirely centered on baseball and how he was quite literally dragged back into it, it鈥檚 like how he鈥檚 only going to be associated with what he鈥檚 supposed to do, even as he鈥檚 dying. So聽鈥渘obody knows you now鈥 is how, since he never had success in music, he feels like no one ever truly knew him or what he wanted and that the one thing he didn鈥檛 want to be known for is what killed him in the end.
And as a little side note: 鈥淭he power of LA鈥 is also a more vague comment about Hope鈥檚 Peak in general, because there really wasn鈥檛 anything the staff or students couldn鈥檛 get away with due to their influence and how once someone鈥檚 a part of that system, it鈥檚 incredibly hard to get out of it.

DP Fic Rec #1
Gathering all DP fics that are in any types of reading list I have, complied over the past year or so!
Note: because of the sheer amount of fics (broke the tumblr link limit, that says enough), I haven鈥檛 gone through and added the authors, but please go and show them some love! There are no crossover fics, since they鈥檙e not my thing. A majority are one-shots.

Saw your post on Padm茅, I think the underlying reasons behind her character being so incomprehensible as a person/character (if you stick to just EP1-3) is that she isn't. George Lucas based most of Star Wars on "Hero with a Thousand Faces", or as the story structure it talks about is commonly called, The Hero's Journey.
Hero with a thousand faces has plenty of great stuff in it, and I'm not calling GL a bad writer or anything, but the OT of star wars is a beat-for-beat adherence to the Hero's Journey.
Thing is, some of "Hero with a thousand Faces" is uh.. sort of dated. It was written over half a century ago, so ofc it shouldn't be held to modern standards - but keep in mind that some of the themes are intertwined in Star Wars.
The prequels don't follow the Hero's Journey exactly, but they are set to "Rhyme" with the OT, so a lot of the story mirrors a Hero's Journey. It's almost like a failed Hero's Journey, where the Hero, Anakin, cannot rise above his struggles.
Remember those dated themes i mentioned? One of the stages is called "Woman as Temptress"
I think the reason for Padm茅's weirdness as a character, is because George Lucas doesn't treat her as one all of the time. In AOTC and in some parts of ROTS, she's pigeonholed into fulfilling the narrative role of temptress for Anakin, and that doesn't work if she's doing stuff like objecting to his wanton slaughter or questioning his actions - so she can't do that.
That's just a writing issue though. in universe, I suspect a force trick - intentionally by Palpatine or unintentionally by Anakin. No evidence for it but if a Jedi can unintentionally influence people around them, particularly when emotionally unstable, it makes way more sense why marriage/attachment is forbidden for jedi. There isn't any evidence in canon for that though.
Regarding this ask.聽
This is a very interesting take on it, and it does work well with the choices that were made irl, like her all but unexplained death, for example. Narratively, it may seem a weak point, but thematically聽there was no way that she could survive RotS, and SW is much more about themes than coherent plot (which isn鈥檛 necessarily a bad thing - the issue is that it鈥檚 often judged as a blockbuster or a sci-fi movie, when it鈥檚 fantasy at its core, and as such operates on a different set of rules). It also works with how the first ideas for聽RotS had her try to stab Anakin on Mustafar, even though she ultimately couldn鈥檛 do it because she loved him too much. From what I can remember (though I couldn鈥檛 find a source again so I might be wrong) Lucas didn鈥檛 want people to think that Anakin鈥檚 fall was anyone鈥檚 fault but his own (yeah, that particular theme still went over people鈥檚 head) by having her actually聽鈥榖etray him.鈥 So her agency was sacrificed to serve Anakin鈥檚 story.聽
I鈥檓 sure there are ways to argue against this being the main reason for her behavior in the PT - TCW in particular gave her her own adventures and life outside of her relationship with Anakin, and there were probably people who worked on the movies who very much wanted her to be a well-rounded, complex person - but as I said I鈥檓 not invested enough in her character to delve into it more.聽
Regarding the in-universe explanation: I don鈥檛 subscribe to the Force trick by Palpatine theory, but I鈥檝e always like the idea of Anakin being so powerful that he can鈥檛 help but (very) subtly affecting people around him. I 100% think Padm茅 fell in love and married her of her own volition, but I can see Anakin unwittingly influencing her in very small ways - making her just a bit happier when he鈥檚 happy about something, etc, which in turns makes it easier for them both to blind themselves to their partner鈥檚 flaws or to the dangers of their relationship. As you said, there is no canon evidence of that though, so it鈥檚 just an interesting idea to explore in fics.聽

Character Building
During our workshops we looked at creating a character using outside attributes and building it in from there. This was my favourite task as it led me to creating the character I鈥檓 using for my piece.聽
Week 1
We started off being instructed to create two costumes and a background. One costume should blend with the back ground and one should stand out. We were not informed at this point that this was a character building exercise. Which helped me be a bit more creative when picking my idea.
I decided to do a night sky, so I used a virtual space background.聽
This was easy to do as teams, our online lecture service, has this built in.
Tumblr media
Then I started on the costumes, working with what I had available to me.
I hole聽punched some scrap paper for the little white circles, to use as stars.聽
I wanted to cut little star shapes, however I had no way of doing this at the small size and large amount needed.
Tumblr media
Next, I glued each individual piece onto a black t-shirt, using hot glue.聽
This process took about 2 hours and using hot glue wasn鈥檛 the best idea. It was difficult to be precise with were the glue was going and for about half of it I was gluing the shirt to my ironing board. If I was able to do it again with different resources, I鈥檇 use fabric glue, sequins and small rhinestones.聽
Tumblr media
This was the final result.聽
I think it looks better on the green screen camera than it in real life. It blends well with the background. For my standing out costume, I had a white t-shirt to change into.
Tumblr media
After showing our creations to each other, we were asked to think of characters that could be made from them.聽I decided to focus on my star costume, and came up with聽鈥楿mbra, Ruler of the Stars鈥. A powerful being with the ability to create and destroy stars. Umbra translates to shadow in Latin. He is a preacher of climate change and has an obsession with David Bowie.聽
After this session, week by week,聽we were tasked with character building exercises. Slowly creating a character starting with superficial things, going down to deep thoughts they have. In the end I had a clear idea for a character and monologue I wanted to create.聽
Here鈥檚 the tasks I was set and the work I created over time:
Week 2
3 lines to describe your character
The story of the most amazing/terrible/ exciting event that happened to your character聽
They鈥檙e a form of life beyond human understanding. They only appear as human to humans.
Their favourite song is Star Man by David Bowie.
They want to stop climate change.
The best thing that happened to him was when he was when David Bowie wrote Star Man about him. He had just discovered Earth on his routine inspection of the universe. Disgusted by the hate and lack of care for the world, he was going to kill the sun. However, he met Bowie and became best friends.
Week 3
1. Develop your costumes and accessories for your character. Add props, scenery 鈥 anything that will add to who you are and to help you create the world around you.聽 2. Develop your character further in terms of their opinions and views. 聽
I added a star covered hat to my costume, to cover my hair. This helps the virtual background look crisper, as it doesn't have to mask around each curl. I also decided to put stars on my face. I still only had hot glue, so I had to come up with another way to stick them on, not wanting to ruin my hat or face. In the end for both I just licked and pressed them on. Hoping they would stick, luckily the majority did.
I think that I can incorporate my own views on social issues for this character. Using it as a creative outlet for things I want to scream from the roof tops. It makes sense for my character to have unbiased, black and white opinions on things. As they don't have human ignorance or experience.聽
They see Burning fossil fuels = Climate change = Shouldn't burn fossil fuels
They're disappointed that humans can't stop harming everything around them. Worried that if they leave humans to do what they want they'll destroy more than themselves.
I was also given feedback and asked some questions:
The Ruler of the stars 鈥撀
What does this mean?
They are not a god, but an entity that controls the stars.聽
Do you have a lot of responsibility?
Yes, they have to keep the universe in balance. Their primary goal is to stop everything from collapsing. Ensuring the right stars are destroyed, moved, cooled down etc.聽
Is your life full of decisions to be made for humanity?聽
In rare circumstances they get involved with lifeforms if they are a risk to the wider universe. This only happens in dire situations, otherwise they like to keep out of it.
How powerful are you? What does the power do for you and to you?
Extremely powerful. They could destroy the universe if they wanted to. However, the power gives them a sense of responsibility and care.聽
Week 4
1. Write 150 words describing your character 鈥 can be in any form: a letter to a friend, a piece of promotional material, a social media post, or just a plain description!聽 2. Research a historic or contemporary character that is similar to your character
I had the idea to write a formal statement from Umbra. Expressing his displeasure with humans and continuing the David Bowie story line:
Tumblr media
Within Greek mythology there are many star and sky gods. There鈥檚 Astraeus, 鈥淭itan god of stars and planets and of the art of astrology鈥澛(Atsma, n.d.)聽His name translates from Latin to聽鈥淥f the Stars鈥. From what聽I鈥檝e read he too would have the聽power to destroy earth.聽
Creating the character this way was a fun exercise. Usually I start with a story and create a character from that. However, this helped me think more deeply about the character as an individual. Instead of having a character that only has attributes related to the story they're written into. It鈥檚 definitely a technique I will utilise in future.
