Hi! I wanted to ask, in your 'take flight' AU, what do the clones need the jetpacks for? Are the wings not actually strong enough to keep them in the air for long or is it just for drawn out air battles/so they have support and don't tie easily/so they're even faster than their own power would allow?
Love your stories and AUs, and your drawings look absolutely stunning! 😍💕
So I've actually gotten this question a few times in the comments of the AO3 work, so I'll just copy and elaborate on one of those responses if you don't mind!
The jetpacks serve multiple purposes:
1) It gives them an extra boost to get up off the ground. While their wings are huge and powerful, the clones are relatively heavy, and carry heavy gear as well. While they could get off the ground by themselves, the jetpacks let them save some energy when they're not in a situation they can take a running leap or fall from a dropship. It also just saves them time if they need to take flight quickly, or are somewhere they can't spread their wings! Given they're in a war, it's important they have options for how to get into the air.
2) It helps them stand a better chance against starfighters/flying droids like vulture droids/people on jetpacks. While clones can dive quickly, their wings are designed more for sustained flight than horizontal speed. Against jet-powered machines, they don't really stand a chance in terms of speed with wings alone. However, with the boost the jet packs give them, they can maximize their flying potential and take on aerial combat. Given their wings and mastery of flight, they're much faster and better at maneuvering than regular humans with jet packs, and can also save on fuel when gliding, using it only when necessary.
3) Possibly most essentially, the jetpacks allow them to fly in space. They are, after all, in Star Wars, fighting in *Space*! Wings are rather useless when there's no wind to catch and no gravity, but the jetpacks allow them to "fly" there too! While it's not the most fun experience, a clone in full armor and full jetpack fuel could technically fly out of the atmospheres of most planets.
I swear I didn't just tack on the jetpacks for kicks and giggles, I've done my best to think through their designs to make wings + space soldiers sorta make sense, as much as it can ^ ^;
Hope my answers make sense! I'm happy to answer questions about this AU or any of my other active AUs, assuming they won't be answered in an upcoming update <3
Thanks so much for stopping by, and for liking my work! <3
