Modern au where r2d2 is a tortoise who's missing limbs and so instead he's on a little cart and Anikin is the one who makes artoos cart and then when anikin disappears artoo is released into the world (he's just chilling and riding around crashing into things) and then later Luke finds him and is just like a tortoise that goes zoom
Ben kenobi sees a tortoise on a motorized cart and has flashbacks of this same creature trying to take out his ankles and sighs and goes "hello artoo please refrain from biting my ankle I will put you in a box"
And Luke is like ????
I don't know it's just important to me that in modern aus it's the same artoo seeing the skywalker chaos and that he be able to cause Obi-Wan stress
Artoo as a tortoise is genius! And Artoo being a tortoise in a cart that zooms - inspired!! They bite AND make weird noises. It's Perfect. Thank you for sharing it! I LOVE it!
Here are some little bits and HC that come to mind from your idea, hope you enjoy!
When Anakin disapears Obi-Wan searches for Artoo but can't find him, despite a tortoise in a motorised cart being something people would definitely notice and remember. He's not upset. He's not. He just gets upset when something hurts his ankle and it's not a snapping tortoise who wants a cabbage.
Luke is over the moon when he finds Artoo. Poor boy lives in the desert, there is nothing exciting around him. Ever. But then he sees a tortoise in a cart who's gotten stuck in some sand. He takes him home and fixes the cart, and a beautiful new friendship is born.
Well, between Luke, Beru and Artoo anyway....Owen is ready to punt the fucker at a moments notice.
And yes! you bet the moment he sees Artoo again all his 'oh what I wouldn't do to have him bite me again' goes out the window and he is constantly threatening him with The Box TM
I can just imagine how baffled Luke would be that the random violent zoom tortoise knows the random hermit????? And they both knew his dad???? The tortoise has been in battle??? Hidden government secrets???? Is his tortoise a wanted criminal??????
Oh and later on, the rivalry between Din 'Hey this blonde is cute' Djarin and Artoo 'I will zoom at everyone and eat their feet' Skywalker, is the stuff of legends and nightmares. He is the ring barer....Din has to chase him around the venue to get the damn rings you wheeled snappy bastard! Come back here!
I really love that having him as a tortoise means he gets to live throughout the Skywalker disaster liniage! Despite being a tortoise, Artoo knows ALL the drama and gossip. He's very happy to watch the Skywalker nonsense unfold, bully everyone, and eat tomatoes.
Ahhhajnsndmrm so many brain thoughts!!! You're a genius!!!!
