"Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?"
star wars meme : seven relationships (2/7) → luke & leia
#strangely old-young twins with peace in one hand and swords in the other #holding the capacity to twist the universe beyond recognition in their bodies #in complete adoration of each other and not much else #(except han; who keeps them grounded; the fastest flyer in the universe keeps them grounded #and that should tell you everything you need to know)
Well, I did not have that OT3 until I read the tags, but now I sure do.
In my head, this post has always been the natural follow up to my Death Star rant, aka “why Luke was totally justified in blowing up the Death Star and certainly not a mass murderer.” Actually I’m not sure they have anything to do with each other, but anyway.
thank you <3
It was awkward, to depend on Obi-Wan and his advice so much, but she had no one else left. For as much as Owen had disapproved of him, he had still been part of her life at home. Owen and Beru at the farmstead. The Darklighters five miles off, their nearest neighbours—Biggs, her best friend. Only friend, she thought sometimes. And yes, Ben Kenobi in his hovel, occasionally showing up out of nowhere to rescue some kid from his misadventure.
Or her misadventure.
“Come on,” she said, and they ran up the corridor, where Han was backed up and shooting stormtroopers.
“Can’t get out that way,” said Han.
“Looks like you managed to cut off our only escape route!” Leia said, her tone acid.
Lucy immediately liked her.
I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS AU FAR TOO MUCH
((Also like Luke and Han were hella easy to sort (hufflepuff and gryffindor respectively man like if you don’t agree idk what to say to you) but Leia was soooooo hard I struggled for AGES before deciding on gryffindor phew))
((BuT LIKE IMAGINE THEM GETTING UP TO SHENANIGANS AT SHOOL AND OBI-WAN IS THE TRANSFIGURATION TEACHER AND YODA IS DADA AND LIKE MON MOTHMA IS HEAD OF RAVENCLAW AND THE CHARMS MASTER AND TARKIN IS SLYHERIN HEAD AND POTIONS AND LIKE RIEEKAN IS HEAD OF GRYFFINDOR FHSJSKDJJDNDJEOSLLRJGOSOA BYE ))
Qui-Gon teaching Care of Magical Creatures and the unicorns loving him because damn hes so chill about everything dude loves every creature
CLONES AS HOUSE GHOSTS satine running the Three Broomsticks, ventress hitwizard extraordinaire, dooku the disillusioned head auror
PEEVESJARJAR STOP BREAKING EVERYTHING
Han is captain of the Gryffindor quidditch team, Luke plays seeker for Hufflepuff and Leia isn’t part of the team but she kicks ass anyway
luke gets into inexplicable amounts of trouble, by graduation he has amassed a troupe of concerned peers. this turns out to be very convenient for the rebellion
the rebellion starts with a few concerned teachers forming an orderofthephoenix-esque group against their sadistic headmaster and gradually, luke han and leia get roped up into it because of
a) Leia’s “WE DEMAND JUSITCE” streak of Doing the Right Thing
b) Luke being overly-idealistic and excited about everything and also Palpatine has something against him wtf
c) Han being constantly suspicious of Palpatine and Tarkin’s motives all the time ever (Leia rolls her eyes and tells him off, but secretly she suspects them too. She just knows how to play her cards diplomatically)
Give yourself to the dark side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for… Sister! So…you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the dark side, then perhaps she will.

#i know amoral aristocratic families are my faves #but scary powerful family dynasties of sassy anti-authoritarian anti-heroes are a close second #star wars #skywalkers and their tightrope walk between being messiahs and destroyers are one of my favourite narrative tropes
