I am new to this community and just wanted to take the time to introduce myself.
I'm Annika or Allura, take your pick.

Anakin Skywalker is one of two fictional characters that have captured my heart and imagination. The other being Leto Atreides II.

Anakin and Leto honestly believed that they were doing the right thing, though both were seriously misguided. Both lost their very humanity in the process. Anakin became Vader and Leto turned into a sandworm to get humanity upon his Golden Path.

However this focuses upon Anakin and I have a few comments to make! ^_^;;;;;

This is going to be under an LJ cut for those who have not read The Unifying Force or played the Knights of the Old Republic I and II.

Who takes the blame for Anakin's fall?Collapse )

Now I think I am going to oogle my Ultimate Villian Anakin some more!

"...The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart." -Lois McMacter Bujold, Memory

Anakin's heart's desire: for his loved ones to be safe.

Anakin's heart: a bit more nebulous. What is at the heart of Anakin? Is it his loyalty to people? His internal sense of honor? His desire to be the best Jedi he can be? And, in falling to the Dark Side, did he trade his heart's desire for his heart?

MAYDAY: Anyone Know Where To Find/Get This Poster?

As the title reads, does ANYONE know where to find/buy this specific poster of Anakin online?

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I would rather not become involved in a bidding war on Ebay (for a poster that's already been grossly over-priced in the first place)....so I was hoping it could be found elsewhere and purchased directly.


ps. Also, maybe someone out there has a LARGER scan of this pic they'd be willing to share?

Anakin recognizes this and makes it a reality. For a moment, all the cosmic tumblers click into place, and the Light and the Dark Sides become two parts of Anakin’s whole.

He brings balance by transcending the dualities of the Force, by realizing that he does not have to remain on the Dark Side. For him, the Dark Side becomes a passage, the underworld or dark forest that mythic heroes frequently have to traverse – a pilgrimage foreshadowed by Luke’s trip through the tree in The Empire Strikes Back.

Vader’s act of atoning for his time on the Dark Side -- atonement, as they say, is another way of writing "at-one-ment" -- is also atonement with the rest of the galaxy. As Vader and son are reconciled, so Anakin is reconciled with his "father", the Force, the galaxy.

The separateness in the world of opposites, the gnawing gap between individual and galaxy, closes.

Anakin Skywalker has found balance in the Force.

This is brilliant and I love it.

Question for the peanut gallery fandom:

How vital is Anakin's going over to the Dark Side to his character?

I ask because I'm writing an AU in which Anakin is tempted, but *doesn't* fall, and I'm afraid I'll wind up in OOC territory if I don't handle it just right. Especially since AU!Anakin has more than enough reasons to fall, but he chooses not to because Palpy isn't offering him the right things.

So, is it essential to our boy's character that he screw up, or is that optional provided a good explanation of why he doesn't?

Think, Anakin!

Anakin spent a lot less time cogitating on things due to his ability to see the future a few crucial seconds in advance. (See TPM 0n)

Did Jedi training actually hinder this ability?

As a follow-up to yesterday's poll, I now must ask, what prompted your answers? Is there a reason some of you favor Sith eyes and some of you favor blue?

Cut for spoilers, despite the fact that they will cease to matter in four daysCollapse )

Four days 'til (some of) our questions are answered. In the meantime, a poll!

Poll #494179 Dark Lord or no?

While he's in the suit, but before the end of RotJ, what color are Anakin/Vader's eyes?

Sith: yellow and read
Other (state below)


Once he's put in the suit, how does Anakin/Vader think of himself?

As Anakin Skywalker.
As Darth Vader.
As both.
As neither (he doesn't give himself a name).
Other (explain below).


I've got my own views on the subject, but I want to see what other people think.
