I just had to 😂
Dave Filoni: this is my oc, she’s anakin skywalker’s padawan, you didn’t see her in the movies but she’s the main character in the side show (which has 8 seasons) along w/ my clone captain oc, her father figure is my favorite side character who is also a major character in the show, she has like 10 love interests (i lost count), she’s lowkey inspired by one of my favorite animes, she has a green lightsaber and a yellow-green lightsaber, also she can dual wield BACKWARDS, there’s an episode where she’s corrupted into the dark side by the dark force god and dies BUT the light goddess revives her and is a part of her now, she fights and beats darth maul (who actually survived the end of episode 1!!), she and my clone oc survive order 66 and the ot, also she becomes a secret rebel leader in the rebellion, she’s a major character in the sequel show and now her lightsabers are white (she’s the first character to purify red lightsabers), she finds out darth vader is actually anakin and they fight and it’s sad :( everyone thinks she died but ACTUALLY one of the sequel show’s mcs from the future saved her by using time-travel to bring her into a force dimension that only chosen ppl can enter, they fight the emperor, and then she becomes like gandalf and she’s going to be a mc in the sequel show after that with my mando oc who is an artist (like me). also i like wolves
Bly’s loyalty to Aayla says a lot about their relationship. He would keep a secret from the republic if Aayla asked him to.
~Bly’s first reaction to hearing Aayla pronounce his name~
~Love at first sight, then love at first sound~
~He thinks the way she pronounces certain things is adorable~
~Saves holo-footages from the clone camera pov system~
~Post order 66, can’t remember why he has this footage but can’t bring himself to delete it~
This quote from Aayla’s former master Tholme just shows how close she was to her troops and how much they respected and loved her. They would literally stare death in the face for HER. Not because of how they were “bred” but because of how much they trusted her as a leader. A shimmering beacon of light.
I feel so robbed that of all the 7 seasons of TCW, we never got to see the 327th star corps in action and see Aayla interact with them like all the other generals did with their troops. Of course we did get that little snippet of felucia, so I guess that’s something.
Wait … I thought Quinlan Vos was her master?? And Vos was taught by Tholme …
Quinlan was, but then he went undercover to work for Count Dooku and Tholme, Vos’s former master, took over her training
White vegans are going to kill us all.
The cognitive dissonance it would take to vote Conservative over a few animal welfare policies when this is the same party that supports the oil and gas industry and is trying to make us do less about climate change (which will make entire species go extinct), is pro-hunting and guns and supports the factory farming of animals.
Like I get it, if you care about animal welfare, that’s fine but don’t just jump at the first party that says something nice without actually examining what they represent as a whole.
Ecofascists be like ‘I’m voting Tory because they said Buttons the Rabbit won’t be tested on *frowny face*’

Summary: Just Aayla and Bly enjoy a rock climbing conversation
“Why didn’t you tell me you were afraid of heights?” Aayla calms down toward her nervous boyfriend, moving the line as she looks in his direction, smiling. “You never seem to have any problems when we are on missions, Bly!”
“That’s because half the time you are throwing me across a canyon before I can protest, sweetheart!” Bly responds, hugging the rock wall in front of him.“I didn’t expect to be climbing on my own this time, when you are always the one taking the lead and choosing it for me!”
Aayla frowns, quickly dropping next to on the thin ledge. “I am sorry if you felt pressured into to doing this.” She reaches over, placing a hand gently on his shoulders. “While I love doing these things, I want you to enjoy our time together as well. Please don’t be afraid to speak up when its something you aren’t feeling comfortable with, hm?” She smiles gently, causing the commanders heart to do a small flip in his chest.
“Thank you for that.” Bly sighs, looking down at the ground far below them before quickly looking back up at his girlfriends calming face.“How about we get down now and go do something a little less deadly?” He asks, laughing nervously. “My hands are so sweaty I could slip at any moment you know!”
“Sure thing, Commander.” Aayla laughs and the pair slowly begin making their way down the wall of the cliff. “What do you have in mind?”
“Well,” Bly huffs, continuing his descent. “How about a nice movie and a dip in the hotels hot tub?” He smirks. “Looks rather comfy, don’t you think?”
Aayla smiles, landing gracefully on the ground. “That sounds lovely.” She smiles as Bly clumsily lands on his rear end near her feet.“You can even pick the movie.”
Bly lies back on the ground, heaving a sigh of relief. “You know, I would move mountains for you Aayla. But-”
“But you won’t climb them?”
“Nope.” Commander Bly chuckles. “But I would walk around it too. Anything to get to you.”
Aayla sits down in the dirt next to him.“Wouldn’t that take a long time? Some mountains can be very big, you know.” She hums, tucking her knees under her chin as she smiles down at the commander.
“You are worth every step of the journey, no matter how long it is.”
“….You have been watching Hallmark movies again, haven’t you Bly?
QUIN AND AAYLA. THEY’RE EACH OTHERS ANCHORS.🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺. the person they became is shaped by the other one🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺
Aayla and Quin’s relationship as they go through the war is so layered and rich. mwaaaaah so good
from Jedi: Aayla Secura(2003)
I humbly offer you…. Baby Bly and Baby Ayala as ducklings 🐥
So many of you have requested Bly and Aayla and here they finally are, enjoying their rainy day! Aayla is showing off her nascent Jedi powers and Bly is falling head over heels for this fantastic little blue lady.
I don’t know if other countries have these, but in the UK, you can buy waterproof onesies for young children so that they can splash around on muddy days without ruining their clothes.
Remember that episode Arc where Aayla teaches Ahsoka not to be too attached, but then every opportunity she gets, her and Bly are practicing standing on each other’s toes:
Like, the space between Ahsoka and Aayla is “respectful talking distanc lol e” Bly is like one and a half steps closer than that in ever shot.
Real subtle guys….real…subtle
I love the idea that like, every single Clone knows Bly and Aayla have a thing going on but absolutely NO JEDI have any idea.
Obi-Wan: Aayla and Bly make an effective team, they seem to get along well.
Cody, who listened to Bly drunkenly ramble about Aayla all night at 79’s: General, you’re fucking stupid
Let’s take a moment to appreciate how much of a badass Aayla is, and acknowledge how dirty TCW did my girl 😤
Hella strong will power, strong enough to resist the pheromones of a Falleen.
She breaks the mold for twi'lek women, a race that treats their women shitty and to be submissive and helpless.
She can handle herself, especially since she’s underestimated.
She defeated Aurra Sing when Aurra was a fallen jedi. In this fight, Aayla sees what she would have become in Aurra if she had completley fallen to the dark side.
She can literally make herself disappear.
She’s a little chaotic like her dad, with the force choking and what not.
She’s super loving and compassionate, from cute animals to encouraging future female twi'lek jedi.
There’s so much I could write about this amazing character, from her struggle with the dark side to her legendary fighting style.
It’s upsetting, because of the limited amount of screen time on tcw, people don’t truly know who she is. What’s even more frustrating is that I know people would love the shit out of her, but instead, tcw fanbase loves a copy made from her.(No hate, but let’s be honest, y'all know who I’m talking about.)
I just wanted to draw some human (male) back. I choose Bly for the job, but I could use any other clone actually. :)
I spent a huge amount of time on a gallery with only male pictures and, if I get trillions of front torso (and more…), the choice of back pictures was pretty poor. Why? Guys, we need your backs too. It’s as much interesting as your front lines. >_<
By the way, don’t take those drawings as references. Use real pictures.
(And Aayla is just enjoying the training session of her boyfri… commander. :D)
Bly’s head chip glitches and ‘traitor’ gets parsed as ‘she cheated on me’ (despite the fact that they weren’t even… dating, because fraternization rules) so instead of shooting Aayla he just sobs out 'You bitch" and throws his gun at her and both she and all the about-to-kill-her clones are just standing there blinking in confusion as he runs off crying and it’s just like “What… what happened” and by that point the Force is screaming loud enough that Aayla gets the hell out of dodge instead of dying.
Everything else is still awful but Aayla survives and Bly is like. Having a meltdown over his not-girlfriend.
Bonus points, the gun he throws misses her by like 3 feet and the running + crying is like, straight out of an anime
“She was a traitor, sir.”
“BECAUSE SHE CHEATED ON ME”
Bly’s sobbing into a pint of ice cream about how much he hates her. But like. He wouldn’t kill her he’s just gonna angrily cross out all the “💘Bly Secura💘” doodles in his journal
Bly’s entire legion shifts to “capture” instead of kill so they can make her apologize to Bly before she’s executed.
Gonna give this another try now that Tumblr seems to be working again.
I don’t have many Star Wars ships, but Blyla is definitely one of them. They’re just so cute together <3 And we’re just happily going to ignore canon and pretend they stay together forever :) :)
(Adapted a pose reference from Kibbitzer)
An alternate universe where Bly sacrificed himself for Aayla, and her injuries caused her to lose their unknown pregnancy. When her time comes, she sees Bly and their twins.
I know. I hate myself too.
ps. I know there aren’t halos in star wars, but I didn’t want to draw them see through.
We need more of this father daughter duo!
What do you mean this isn’t canon?????
Some fun shenanigans with the 327th Star Corps 💛🌟🌠
Fun fact: Deviss was actually Bly before they changed his color to yellow
Ooohhh, how about Bly and Aayla? I still haven't gotten around to drawing them myself but I think they'd look lovely in your style!
They're just such a sweet couple and deserve so much better T_T
Here is some cute Bly and Aayla for you! <3 I was reading some Legends comics with them and Quinn this week so I am happy you asked for them!
