...time-travel AU of the "Vader's mind in baby Anakin's body" variant and the kid just goes full vegetarian. Obi-Wan is like 'well, okay then, I'll take that as a good sign about him trying to embody Jedi value for life? He knows there's carnivores in the Order, does he know he doesn't have to--oh, yep, he knows, okay then, I guess I'll just support him!" but actually Vader can just Smell Things other than bacta for the first time in twenty-five years, and the lovely scent of grilled meat makes him want to vomit from intense sense memories of Mustafar.
R2D2 in a ‘~here comes the boy~’ video with footage of him giving cute beeps and running to Anakin for loves, with the passive aggressive response of ‘~here comes the BOY-‘ version of Artoo threatening people with his electric rod and running into people without saying sorry submitted by Obi-Wan, the one he’s usually threatening.
Anakin being a protective dad who doesn't want his baby boy dating a big mandalorian is hilarious BUT consider this:
Anakin adores Din.
Even before he meets him the way Luke smiles and brightens when talking about Din, the sweet holos he has of him and Grogu, and most of all, the knowledge that Din flew into a Krayt Dragon and blew it up from the inside! - as both Anakin 'dramatic and reckless jedi in chief' Skywalker AND a tatooine native, he thinks that is the coolest thing he's ever heard!
So, without a doubt, Anakin adores Din, even before meeting him.
Then. Then he meets him in persob. And WOW if he thought he liked Din before. Din is polite, kind, an amazing father, an amazing fighter and hero but still humble. He decides then and there Din will be part of the family. Anakin notices the pining -how could anyone miss it - and spends months scheming to push them to confess their feelings.
NOW here's the thing: Leia is furious.
Anakin despises Han. Anytime he visits he makes Han's life a living hell, and if anyone mentions him Anakin finds some way to slag him off. He makes Han call him Master Skywalker but immediately let's Din call him Anakin/Ani/"hopefully Dad soon" "OMG DAD NO you're so embarassing - that was a secret"
Han is spluttering in outrage - "can I call you Anakin then?" "No." "WTF DAD"
The evening after he first met Din Anakin announces to the family (minus Luke who's stargazing with Grogu and Din) that Din is now a part of the family. Han is like 'I don't know how I feel about having a mando bounty hunter for a brother.." and Anakin responds "he won't be your brother." "I'm married to your daughter" "For now." "We've been married for ten years!" "So?" "IVE LITERALLY GIVEN YOU A GRANDCHILD!"
Leia yells at him, its chaos but Anakin doesn't care - Han is annoying and Din is great and that's that.
Basically just Anakin loving Din and getting Luke and Din to finally realise the pining is mutual while getting chewed out by Leia (even though she also wants Din as a brother) for being a dick to Han.
"In Ep. 2, Obi-Wan is very wary for Anakin because I think he really loves him. When he gives into his anger or shows that his arrogance is getting in the way of him becoming a Jedi, Obi-Wan is disappointed for Anakin." - Ewan McGregor on how Obi-Wan & Anakin's relationship evolved from The Phantom Menace
I'm sure there are Temple barbers for all the various Jedi and padawan hairstyles we see (and ones we don't!), but there's also something infinitely funnier (and kinda sweet) about a master being in charge of giving their padawan the haircut.
I don't think we know what Qui-Gon's padawan cut looked like, but I hope it was like Obi-Wan’s... and can you imagine Dooku giving him that hairdo??
And I'm just imagining Obi-Wan so excited to be a padawan that he's just fine with whatever Qui-Gon is doing. Maybe his cut wasn't "official" but more like Qui-Gon going, "this is what I suffered thru so now you have to, too." (But no one told Obi-Wan til he looked around and was like, "where's y'all's buzzed heads and nerf tails??" [Obi-Wan is from southern Stewjon btw.])
And I imagine when Obi-Wan is cutting Anakin's hair, Obi-Wan is still rather sad about losing his master, but Anakin being the bright and bouncy kid he was, just makes Obi-Wan feel better by being excited about getting the same hairdo as Obi-Wan. (Even though it's ridiculous.)
ANAKIN, FIVE MINUTES AFTER LANDING ON THIS PLANET, GETS HIMSELF ATTACKED BY A POSSESSED DROID.
OKAY, THAT CHECKS OUT.
ANAKIN, FIVE AND HALF A MINUTE LATER: STARTS CRABBING ABOUT OBI-WAN’S TERRIBLE JOKES.
THAT IS 100% THE MOST IN CHARACTER ANAKIN SKYWALKER I HAVE EVER READ.
