    Thank you @Raissa Baiard for this fascinating challenge
    And thanks to @devilinthedetails for the lovely, lingering imagery of shimmersilk


    Their love is poised on a precipice of secrecy - of impossible denials and heart-breaking choices, as Anakin must continually bid the love of his life goodbye, never knowing if or whether he will see her again.

    The resentment he feels towards the Jedi for forcing this silence of something so lovely, so treasured, burns inside, and the fact that he has those feelings must also be denied.

    He channels it into fierce and reckless actions during the confrontations with the Seppies.

    Padme feels like their love is as gossamer-fine and fragile as shimmersilk, easily torn and because of that, it must be cared for tenderly and preserved at all costs against the ravages of circumstance and war.

    She hates that Anakin must leave, that she cannot proudly proclaim to stranger and friend alike, "I'm a woman in love!"

    The fact that all this is seen by a malevolent and hidden schemer sets them all up for the bitterest betrayal - as they are maneuvered into playing right into his hands.

    This was so bittersweet, but also beautiful and poetic as @devilinthedetails said! Anakin/Padmé will always hold a special place in my heart. Beautiful work. [face_love]

    So lovely. Really speaks of Anakin's growing frustrations. And Padme is caught between being proud of their love and knowing that it will always be difficult. Very poetic.
