^ She definitely was the only person he loved as a child and was snatched from him so early in life

Those gifs are so pretty

The feels. Obi-Wan basically extends a hand, says “I know you guys are a thing and IT’S OKAY,” and Anakin just... won’t take the offer. These boys clearly loved each other, but... oh, the trust issues. This is all after the Rako Hardeen deceit and Ahsoka’s conviction/expulsion, which Anakin undoubtedly views Obi-Wan as complicit in. Personal loyalty is everything to Anakin, and he feels that it’s ultimately not the same for Obi-Wan.

I also feel a great deal of it is that our poor damaged boy Anakin is just SO fiercely protective of Padmé, that he’s convinced himself that HE’S the only one he can trust to protect her, or their secret. That Padmé is his responsibility and his alone to keep safe. He failed his mom, he failed Ahsoka... Padmé is his last chance to get it “right.”

My heart breaks for him, he felt essentially alone amongst the Jedi and couldn't trust anyone

I know! It is so cute and so funny

On a different, and deeper note, I saw this on Tumblr.

it’s sad enough on the surface when shmi tells anakin “don’t look back” as he leaves her in tpm. yes, he’s been freed from slavery, and yes he’s off to a life that’s better than one shmi believes she can give him. but there’s more to it than that. anakin promises to return and free her, a sign that his fear of losing her and his attachment to her will follow him throughout his life. shmi knew those feelings would destroy anakin if he allowed them to control him.

when he asks if he’ll see her again, shmi tells him to look in his heart. it’s only when anakin places the burden of a promise that shmi knows he can’t keep on his shoulders, that she tells him “don’t look back.”

shmi tells anakin not to look back as a way to say “let go of me and of what you can’t change. don’t let that promise consume you; i don’t hold you to it.” in her last moment with him, shmi tries to keep anakin from trading one form of slavery for another.

Want to make this sadder? Anakin tries to do the same thing for Luke. Shmi believed it was Anakin’s destiny to be free, but that her place was as a slave on Tatooine. It was too late for her, but not for him. Her ‘don’t look back’ is her way of trying to relieve him of the burden of changing her sad fate from which she was absolutely sure there was no escaping.

Vader’s ‘it’s too late for me’ to Luke serves the same purpose. Luke is the free-born son of a free woman. There’s no reason he has to turn himself into a slave to the Dark Side and the Emperor in some foolish attempt to save the father who was born to be a slave.

Both Shmi and Anakin try to relieve the burden of saving them from their child and both fail. In Shmi’s case, her failure dooms her son. In Anakin’s case, it saves them both.

Thanks for posting those insights, I agree on both accounts and it just makes me so sad that Anakin didn't get to save Shmi even though she knew he wouldn't be able to.

Yea, seeing that scene with Luke in light of this is so eye opening. Watching both scenes back to back would be very emotional.

Nope. Only in fan fiction.

I sometimes think fanfiction gets it right more times than canon

Sometimes. Some pics are really awesome.

But sometimes I read ones that started off so good and just went off the rails.
