And my Tatooine Twin Sunset edit 😊
This week’s theme: Headcanons! Feel free to use my headcanons as inspiration for your fics. And please send in your own headcanons, and I will try to find a comic panel to go with them!
My headcanon for Luke and Leia is that they have a food allergy in common that they inherited from Anakin. They figure out they both have this allergy before they know they are siblings.
“Star Wars Adventures 5: The Trouble at Tibrin, Part II.” Marvel. December 27, 2017. Writer: Landry Q. Walker. Penciller: Eric Jones. Letterer: Tom B. Long. Colorist: Charlie Kirchoff.
The inspiration for this headcanon comes from the 2003/4 video game Tales of Symphonia, which was my obsession through my entire teens. Spoilers below:
I’m currently hyperfixating on star wars, so have these as a treat
did canon say luke is the older twin? perhaps. does my brain continue to ignore that fact bc leia is clearly older? yes and I will not be changing my mind
A little thought I had while watching Twin Suns for the thousandth time. I wondered what was going on in Maul’s head now that he finally found Kenobi.
Warnings: You already know what’s coming.
Finally. Revenge. It had been so long and Maul’s path had wandered so far through the galaxy. Now, on this planet circling twin suns, he would finally have the vengeance he had been seeking. The sound of a blue saber igniting sends a familiar thrill rushing through his blood. Maul leapt forward with twin crimson sabers ready.
Strike high. KSHHHZ
How long had it been? 30 years? Maul hardly knew anymore. Time held no meaning for him at this point. His time on Malachor had taken away all sense of time. Only the moment held any meaning for him. Only this moment mattered.
Strike low. KSHHHZ
He lost so much because of the Jedi in front of him. Kenobi took not only his legs but his destiny, his path in life. Maul had to fight and claw for every scrap of power and every credit he had. Now, it was all gone. Savage, gone. His hold on Mandalore, gone. His criminal empire, gone. All of his losses started with this man in front of him. All of it his fault. Was it, truly?
Strike the face and…
A flash of blue past his face. Maul couldn’t move and felt an all too familiar pain strike his chest. Searing, burning pain crawled through him. No, not yet! Not when I’m so close! The air rushed out of his lungs as his strength left his body. His lightsaber left his hands in sparking pieces as Maul fell to the ground. No, not the ground. Why did Kenobi catch him? Maul struggled to breathe, to comprehend what just happened as he looked at his enemy. He had to know why he was here. Why this planet of all places. Where it began, and where it ends. Maul struggled to find words as his chest felt so heavy, “Tell me. Is it the Chosen One?” “He is,” his enemy answered. I understand now. “He will avenge us.” Us. Not me. All Force users. They really were no different. So this is peace. Maul looked to the sky as his breath left him and his hearts slowed to a stop. As the stars faded from his vision and he felt the Force take him, he swore he heard a familiar voice call to him. “I’ve been waiting for you, Brother.”
Also still not over Maul dying in the arms of his mortal enemy like that.
What do y’all think of Twin Suns? Personally, I think it’s a great way to end Maul’s story. Everything from the build up to the actual fight and the aftermath is incredible. It’s so emotional and moving. Could the fight have been longer? Maybe. But I feel like it would have taken away from the symbolism.
I also really like how Maul died peacefully. I like to think that it says a lot if a villain dies either by sacrificing themselves or if they die with someone who cares about them. Maul went through so much pain and he caused a lot of pain himself and yet he died peacefully in Obi-Wan’s arms. Something else I really liked was that Maul wasn’t angry at Obi-Wan when he struck him down. I feel that a part of Maul wanted to die. And Maul was right, “he will avenge us.” I can only hope that Maul was having a victory party in the Star Wars afterlife when Palpatine died.
Speaking of Obi-Wan, he is the definition of a true Jedi; he is able to let go of his pain and doesn’t show anger to Maul. Even though Maul did a lot of bad stuff, Obi-Wan pitied him and showed compassion. He really does have the high ground.
The duel really highlights how both characters have grown. Obi-Wan has moved on and accepted his past. He has a purpose to protect Luke and knows that Maul will threaten the boy. Maul, on the other hand, is stuck in the past, unable to let go because he doesn’t know how. He has no purpose and relies on old grudges and pains to keep him going. The irony is, Maul tells Ezra to “forget the past” even though he himself can’t let go. While Obi-Wan has grown and “risen above,” Maul hasn’t grown and continues to be controlled by his past.
Maul’s final duel with Obi-Wan is definitely my fave duel and my all time favorite Star Wars scene. What are your thoughts?
Trying to design some kind of twin suns symbol for Luke.
Continuing quickly across the Orion-Cygnus Arm, on a course for the Perseus Arm, one of the least explored sections of the Milky Way, and the primary target for the Perseus Reach deep space expedition…

Some people say I think too much
I don’t think they think enough
