star wars - the mother we share by shorelle star wars - the mother we share by shorelle

"She was very beautiful. Kind... but sad."

A couple of missing moments between Padme, Luke and Leia. One of the things I noticed about the original Star Wars storyline was how little mention was made of Luke and Leia’s mother, in comparison to the mystery of their father – which I understand, given Anakin/Vader’s huge role in the story, but. it still makes me sad that the twins would never know their mother, and Padme would never be able to see her children through the Force… :cries:

So, forever-unfinished wish fulfilment drawings! (they deserve a lot better, I’m sorry T_T I was trying to do a potential print but need to retry the colours completely...)

Inspired by "The Mother We Share" by CHVRCHES and "Hear You Me" by Jimmy Eat World, both beautiful and sad songs.

This is - these are - absolutely beautiful.  Thank you.

I'm no good at this sort of thing, my art is words... but for a while, I've had the idea of a collage of her from Episodes I-III, with the dialogue of that scene overlaid.

"Just images, mostly.  Feelings."
"Tell me?"

I scour the net for twins learning of their mother pics/fanfics. This one's great!

In my headcanon Padme can watch her children >.<

It bothers me, that even in the EU Padme is little mentioned.
(One thing I never get. Why don't understand so many people that Leia can remeber her mother? I mean a green little Alien hover a ship with the force. Luke hit a tiny hole with ropedo with the force. So Leia remebers trough the force. Why is it such a big deal?)

Nevertheless I still in love with you'r art and all the feels ;-;
