Great sounding challenges! I'll put them in the Saga thread. Thanks for the ideas, Jade and agentj! I love those pictures of Obi-Wan and Anakin. Trace has a habit of yelling at Darth Vader in the OT, because he has Obi-Wan on the brain. She's right, though. They say the line between love and hate is very thin. I think in the case of these two it's very evident. Vader is convinced he hates Obi-Wan, but is still driven to compare himself to him and comes up failing in his mind. He speaks of him all the time in the OT, even after he's killed him. Obi-Wan deals with his failure of Anakin by diving him into two people, Anakin and Vader. I think deep down he wishes to get "Anakin" back and this is his plan with Luke. Luke is groomed his whole life to get his father and Obi-Wan's "son" back. The most interesting thing about Anakin as a chacter is that there is very little that could be considered completely out of character for him. He's that complex and conflicted. He's arrogant but insecure at his center. He's intelligent, but sometimes very foolish and naive. We know that he loves very with all his heart, but when he hates...look out. About the only thing I can't picture Anakin as being is indifferent. He is extremely complex and conflicted. I think it's safe to say he does nothinghalf-way. I've always thought it ironic that when he becomes detached and unemotional, it is as Darth Vader. In some ways, its like the Jedi got what they wanted...he has no attachments (until Luke), he's cold and calculating (no impetuousness there!), and he is deadly patient when he has to be. He still has moments of anger and impatience, but it doesn't come close to his former self. I think part of what happens in ROTS teached the Jedi a lesson (I know, that's a given) about emotions and attachment and humanity.
