Sorry coppers, the only ‘Boys in Blue’ that I respect are the Men of the 501st Legion❤❤
It’s been so many years and I’m still salty about what happens to Fives

Damn, I love him. Just look at ‘em!
Inspired by this post
Crack AU where Darth Sidious’ plan to get Anakin on side goes hilariously off-kilter the moment he announces he’s appointing Anakin as his representative on the Jedi Council.
Because if you are on the Jedi Council, you automatically get the rank of High General.
Which means promotions and command of System Armies.
And One) There is no way in this Galaxy that Anakin is getting separated from Obi-Wan.
And Two (and far more importantly)…
Rex: *comes back from a meeting with Cody looking deadly serious* General, if you ever promote me to Marshal Commander, I will tell General Kenobi exactly who keeps switching his tea to de-caff, Ahsoka where your secret stash is, the entire Jedi Council about your wife and the company so they can collect on their bets and I will ensure you never sleep in a sandless bunk ever again.
Rex is not dealing with the bullshit that comes with that rank. It’s bad enough that Ahsoka left and he got promoted to Commander and is now dealing with that paperwork as well as ensuring the 501st don’t unleash mayhem where it’s not needed AND making sure Anakin doesn’t do anything too stupid without supervision.
Being Marshal Commander? No Thank You.
And if avoiding that fate means he has to threaten his general, then he’s threatening his general.
Anakin is sweating bullets the moment Palpatine says he wants to put Anakin on the Council. He thinks he manages to get out of it by pointing out the Council elects their own and
bows out gracefully fakes a comm call from Rex before Palpatine can speak any further.
Anakin’s efforts are in vain when the Council calls him about his new appointment. Anakin actually manages to slip out of it by offering to take the Grievous mission, stating something about how Obi-Wan is the better diplomat between them and oh, look at the time, we really should be going if we’re going to catch him! Tell you what, I’ll just take the 212th and the 501st with me.
Hilarity ensues with Palpatine being very confused as to why his potential apprentice is avoiding him like he avoids sand and why he’s avoiding the Council as well. He also seems to be eyeing his Clone Captain like he’s a vicious Kyrat who’s about to bite him.
(Rex is very nearly about to shoot his General. He’s not getting promoted damn it!)
(Of course, Anakin could just promote another clone rather than Rex, but Rex is next in line and they’ve already worked out a system and like hell is Rex going to let anyone, even a brother, be second in command to General Skywalker. Partially because he likes his brothers and Skywalker is insane. Partially because it would be very weird to not be Skywalker’s 2IC.)
Not to mention that Kenobi is now the ambassador between the Council and the Senate and both of them hate it.
And that’s how Marshal Commander Cody finds out about Palpatine being super skeevy with Anakin for years because both he and Rex are hiding from the Chancellor and the Council in his office to avoid getting promoted. Anakin makes an off-hand reference that reminds Cody of something and makes him go digging.
Anakin also mentions his nightmares about Amidala which causes Rex to send Kix to her to give her a proper checkup which leads to several things.
Basically, Palpatine is foiled and the Republic is saved because Rex didn’t want to get promoted to Marshal Commander and Anakin spent a lot of time hiding in Cody’s office to avoid said promotions.
The clone wars
Or as I like to call it
Commander Cody not getting a single break for 3 years cause Rex and three Jedi who always have to be Extra ™️
I’m not gonna give any money to those fuckers at disney. Just waiting for the new season of Clone Wars to leak online like
I’m so happy to see clone episodes again. I miss fives. I’m excited to see ahsokas episodes. I hope we see little boy Kanan.
Not seeing “executive produced by George Lucas” at the end of the episode hurt me more than I thought it would
I’d like to thank Clone Wars for coming back, and reminding me there are still wonderful, amazing things about Star Wars
A fight scene without dramatic music? In my clone wars? It’s more likely than you think
It’s fucking solid snake
Oh there’s definitely tons more. What has the GAR been doing with them? Probably secret, super shady shit. Which means they’re all probably no-nonsense, violence is the answer, emotionally broken boys and I already love the mere concept of their existence.
the ONLY boys in blue that deserve rights are the 501st and THATS on THAT
I love this part because everyone looks kinda guilty and awkward.
But Rex looks ready to fight and at the same time he looks so done with everyone.
Kix checking to make sure he still has an arm.
And then there’s Jesse almost dying in the background.
Someone help him
“Hello Master, it’s been awhile.” 🧡💙.
So happy Clone Wars is back and that I finished my Ahsoka headpiece for my cosplay!
