MORE RANDOM STAR WARS AU THINGS

This was inspired by an anonymous message on tumblr that mentioned an AU where Padme was the Jedi-turned-Sith Lord, and where Anakin was a senator instead – and then I got stuck on thinking about how Anakin would be either the most entertaining and/or the worst senator ever (what with his, er... lack of patience for politics) 

because let’s be real, Anakin would most likely subscribe to the “punch first, repair interplanetary relations later” approach to diplomacy XD (which is pretty much how Vader dealt with politics when he had to??)

with bonus Obi-Wan as his long-suffering Jedi bodyguard?! really, this just raises more questions - how did Senator Skywalker still lose his arm?? how do you draw Neimoidians?? :nuu: (also, just taking any excuse for some much needed practice with drawing comics! xD)

Padme I'm bored.

I donno, I just found it amusing. Maybe it's partly because he's supposed to be paying attention to important stuff, and partly because I figured Padme would be a bit incredulous about him randomly saying that in the middle of an important session.
...you know, it would be cool if there was a fic where something messed with reality and switched Anakin and Padme's roles. So that they pretty much have to be each other, as everyone else remembers them that way. And they would completely fail, just like this.

Haha, pretty much! I would totally love to read a fic with this premise as well :XD: There would be sooo many opportunities for hilarious awkwardness with basically everyone they meet.

The real question would be which system he is representing in the Senate, or maybe just his home planet? XD Anakin Skywalker, the representative of an Outer Rim planet and a master of politic talks! XD

Good question! Yeah I assumed it would just be Tatooine, on the off chance they actually got a representative in the Senate :P

Oh my gosh, this AU is hilarious. XD Whoever thought Anakin should be a senator should be sat in the corner and made to think very hard about their life choices. XD Poor Obi-Wan.

I think the Neimoidians look great (although they are a bit short) and I just love everyone's expressions. Especially Obi-Wan's shifty eyes in the first panel made my day.
I love all your Star Wars AUs. Why can't we have a gazillion shows about all these alternate versions? It'd be so much fun!

Oh, Gods! I can totally imagine Anakin being this type of politican (and celebrity)! :D Poor Obi-wan, even in this universe he must clean up his charge's "punch the sleemo, and screw their immunity" policy. (Because, let's face it. Only Obi-wan, the patience personified of a stone saint, can semi-manage Anakin Skywalker the Senator. A real saint/others/Jedi will be driven to the point of homocide. xD)

But the real question is... how did he get out of slavery to represent Tatoonie?
Reply
:iconshorelle:
shorelle Featured By Owner May 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahahaha, I can totally see that too :P Poor Obi-Wan indeed... he's certainly earned his title of Jedi Master after the amount of patience and meditation he must have gone through! 

And that's a good question actually... maybe he would have been freed the same time as Shmi (when Cliegg Lars married her), or he could have swindled his way out somehow through the cesspool of bribery and corruption that would be Tatooine's government (or lack thereof :P) This is probably where he learnt his more, er, violent methods of negotiation...

I can imagine someone signing Anakin up as a joke without him knowing, but then everyone votes for him because the other candidates are even worse. Then one day as he's playing Clone Wars on his hand held with Padme as the main character he get a knock on his door. A bunch of representative have come to announce that he is the new senator of their planet. Then he has a WHF! moment and faints. When he wakes up he's on a ship to Coruscant.

I also imagine that his zero tolerance for politics of any sort inadvertently makes him the most ppopular senator. So when his term ends and he's ready to get the heck out of there his planet elects him again. An entire room is destroyed when he finds out.
