Should there be a challenge against Anakin and Padme's marriage?

    Anakin was SERIOUSLY insecure and unstable and messed up at that point. Heavily hinted that Anakin was just making crap up because he was so unstable, in my point of view.

    You're actually claiming to speak for "all independent women"? Quite presumptuous of you.

    We never saw her pee either. I'll assume from that, that she had one hell of a bladder and didn't pee for 30 years or so.

    She could, but I see no reason for her to do so, other than it suits you for the purpose of your fan fic, in which case...

    As I said earlier, go for it if that makes you happy. I've seen worse pairings.

    That's totally different, so we can say Anakin also got other relationship just the existing EU didn't mention it?

    So what's the problem? If she thinks Obi Wan's multiple relationship is wrong, then she should end this relationship. If she thinks that's not wrong, why couldn't her do the same? Anakin is young, handsome and passionate, he and his padawan also helped her before. That could remind her of the young Obi Wan.

    Satine has never indicated what she thinks of Obi-Wan's other relationships.

    Yes, I agree with that, but that does not mean he could not grow feeling of other women. Actually it makes sense, if he once grew feeling of other women(not having sex with them, just feelings), he would understand how powerful and uncontrollable it is, that would make him suspect Padme might experienced the same thing.

    If one can excuse his awkward-as-hell lines in AOTC otherwise, I'd say he probably did. I'm not sure what your point is.

    I, personally, don't want to see it.

    You obviously do, and you like it in your fan fic, so let's just part ways.

    The poster's point is that Obi-Wan has aged and so Satine sees in Anakin what she ONCE saw in Obi-Wan. Being a passionate woman, and Obi-Wan having grown into a stiff-necked Jedi, she wants to rekindle the passion she once had, but now with the young stud-muffin Jedi. Anakin, being male, can't help feeling physically attracted to her although he is pledged to Padme, so he has to fight against his feelings to stay true to his wife.

    /that's what I get, anyway.

    I don't think Satine is passionate, at least not in many ways, but since she once grew feeling of the young Obi Wan she could feel the same way for Anakin as well. I guess that's because she saw too many dirty politicians like Almec or warlords like most of the Mandalorians.

    There could some events to let them work together and grow feelings through it.

    You are correct that Satine could fall in love with Anakin - just as she could fall in love with anyone. I don't understand why she should, but I will give you that it is a possibility but a pretty long shot possibility.

    I'm just not sure why you want Satine and Anakin paired, rather than creating your own new love interest for Anakin in your fanfic.

    Because I like Satine a lot and think she's the only one who's good enough to let Anakin grow feelings. She also share some similarities with Padme. Anakin's love story could be better with some challenge.

    Is there a Cupid in Star Wars? If not, there should be.

    I guess the "Will of the Force" is the one true god of Star Wars, which would make Cupid superfluous. Still, I like to think that Cupid would have a better sense of humor.

    Well I will say because of Lucas, SW movies' love story is not written well. Especially Anakin and Padme's development is quite vague.

    I like it, it just should have more info about how the 2 women thought about this relationship.

    They battle it out in a mudpit, but in the end, agree to share Anakin because 1/2 of him is better than 2 of anyone else.

    No, I think Padme would break up with Anakin, not sure if she could accept Obi Wan since he was using her.

    Nah, Obi-Wan and Padme were using each other - Padme was thinking how much better sex was with a real man while Obi-Wan was gloating over how he was doing his padawan's wife and how everyone thought he was such a good Code-obeying Jedi.

    ... I know I better keep away from this thread, but still:

    1. Padme is Anakin's one true love. Changing that would make ROTS completely ridiculous. The OT probably too.
    2. Satine and Anakin? A pacifist and someone who loves to fight? No.
    3. Why should there be one more lovestory? We already have three, and I'm fine with that. TCW is not only about love.

    1. Great love story should have challenge.
    2. Anakin likes peace, he just thought peace require power to ensure.

    1. A challenge? Okay. A love triangle? No. "The Time Traveler's Wife" is also a great love story, even though there isn't a love triangle.
    2. Anakin surely likes peace overall, but still he wouldn't keep away from a fight. And Satine doesn't like to fight at all.

    1. Without someone who's as good as Anakin/Padme, I don't see their love story being challenged well.
    2. He wants to become a hero, but he only view fight as a method to maintain peace and that's right. It's just a difference of method, not goal. Obi Wan also support fight and coups in the clone wars.

    *sigh*. I'm going to regret this...

    Can I ask exactly why you think that the only valid challenge to a romantic relationship is a third person interfering? I'm not following that one at all. You do realize that there are a myriad of reasons that real-life couples have problems and/or break up, and without statistics in front of me, I'm still willing to bet that most of them do not involve a third person.

    And please come up with something other than "it's a good storytelling device" or "well these classic love stories have a triangle." You used that one already. I'm challenging you to break through my stubborn mind and help me understand, as opposed to beating your opinion into my brain again. ;)

    And ah, Valairy...I didn't know you had it in you. The sarcasm is strong with you my friend. :D
