I meant to have this out for @jedijune​​’s first prompt, “There is no emotion, there is peace,” but oh, well. 
Obi-Wan is sometimes accused of being somewhat repressed – not demonstrative enough, not emotional enough. On the other hand, he’s just as often characterized as an emotional wreck. 
What struck me while going through some of the hardest moments of his life is how powerful his emotions actually are when he is faced with loss. More often than not, you can see the passion, the fear, or the heartbreak.

But far from being wrecked by those feelings, Obi-Wan deals with them with the endurance and steadfastness of a Jedi. Obi-Wan feels very deeply, there’s no question about that, but what makes it so poignant is how quiet his grief actually is, once the initial emotional reaction has passed.

Obi-Wan can’t help but feel deeply, that’s who he is. His instinctive emotions are just as strong as anyone else’s. But Obi-Wan’s grief – the bone-deep sorrow that lingers past the first emotional reaction, that carries years into a person’s life, the conscious pain brought forth by loss – is very soft. It’s clearly deep as well, but it’s contained, private. 
It’s very Jedi of him, to feel so much, and yet to only allow himself to express it quietly – unobtrusively. To only choose to be calm and measured once he is in control of himself. To strive for peace. 
I just love that aspect of him. Powerful, but quiet.
Just like his love.

The Jedi who loved too much, in spite of his self-sacrificial adherence to the Code.
The Jedi who lost the ones he loved, and loved the ones who caused him loss.

The Jedi code: No attachment! No romantic partners! No family!
Anakin sneeking off to meet up with Padme after a night out with the 501st, whilst hiding adoption papers for Ashoka: What attachments? No attachments hear!
Obi Wan sat on Cody's lap whilst waiting for a message from Satine: Be mindful of the code padawan.
Aayla removing herself from Bly's face for 0.5 seconds: What did you say?
Kit Fisto waiting to call Aayla and Bly so they can meet up for date night: You must listen to master Yoda, attachments are dangerous.
Ploo koon and Shaak Ti surrounded by clone younglins as they fill out adoption forms for the entire army: Emotions are not the Jedi way.
Depa Billap tucking Caleb into bed: You must learn to let go of your feelings.
Quinlan Vos in the middle of checking in with Aayla and having given Bly the shovel talk: Listen to Obi Wan, he's usually right.
Mace Windu sitting worriedly at medical waiting for news on his injured men: As Jedi it is are duty to follow the code.

Anidala week 2017 - Day 7 - Free theme
“The Jedi and the Senator - Dancing"
This must have happened sometime during the Clone Wars, at some official party with the Galaxy jet set. And I’m all about embarassed Obi Wan and Satine snickering behind.

I personally am not usually one for fics of aus where Satine ends up pregnant, but like, imagine a Satine lives AU where she and Padme are pregnant at the same time....
Yeah, I get where you’re coming from, I think? Given that Obi-Wan and Satine’s story is meant to provide a contrast and counterpoint to Anakin and Padme, having them end up in the same situation sort of defeats the narrative purpose? BUT HEY, that’s what AUs are for.
So, Satine Lives, babies are made, etc…
Clearly the girls are going to go to all their check ups together and know for sure that Padme is healthy and in no danger of dying in childbirth.
Tumblr media
As they’re still campaigning hard for a peaceful resolution of the Clone Wars, the Pro-war editorials on the holonet are probably calling it the “Pacifist Pregnancy Pact” and accusing them of using emotional manipulation to try to swing public support for peace talks. Satine is like, “if I thought that would work I would’ve tried it years ago”.
(Also Satine’s cute little bump is going to make it increasingly obvious that Padme is just, like, way more pregnant than normal. Twins. Seriously.)
So when ONE high profile politician is pregnant during her affair with an impetuous young Jedi Knight, you can see just letting it be, keeping it quiet. People sort of know, they just don’t want to come right out and SAY it.
But when it’s TWO pregnant high profile politicians, at the same time, and one of the Jedi baby daddies is on the dang High Council, maybe you don’t sweep that under the rug so much.
Tumblr media
Meanwhile the Council is like…

(Ki-Adi-Mundi always keeps the space-cigars around for when one of his wives has another baby. Mace Windu is just like “FORCE GIVE ME STRENGTH. We expect this shit from Skywalker, but you too, Kenobi?”)

this, right here, is an entire summary of the clone wars. it was an unforgiving war fought by millions upon millions of clones—clones who were on the front lines, who created the name of the clone wars and were the face of it. they were the shields—the helmets. and yet, in the shadows, no one knows what is behind that face of the war, that helmet. what is going on inside that mind. what it’s planning. but as the clones start to crack, as the helmet is cracked here, it is all revealed, and it all makes sense. behind the mask, in the shadow of all of it, grew darth vader. a new empire. and so, as the clone wars draw to an end, as only one clone helmet is left in the piling snow, darth vader and the empire arises.

Conversation
Padme: Anakin, I’m so happy I could kiss you!
Anakin: Umm... neat!
[later]
Anakin, lying face down on his bed: I can’t believe I said "neat", Obi-Wan. "Neat". Nobody says neat anymore. It’s the goddamn 21st century. It’s not neat to say neat, but I said it anyway because I’m a huge loser.
Obi-Wan: Hey, don’t beat yourself up. Everyone gets nervous sometimes. Remember what happened when Satine confessed to me?
Anakin: Didn’t you thank her?
Obi-Wan, staring into the distance: I thanked her.
