    Being fair, it's very difficult to look good when you're being compared to Buster Keaton, Tom Cruise, and Tony Jaa.
  2. In Topic: Laseen's role?

    Rereading NOK lately, and something is standing out to me,

    K&D bring an army of shadow cultists and a company of bridgeburners to Malaz. The shadow cultists wander around picking random fights with people like Oleg, Tayschrenn and Kiska while they're waiting for things to kick off at the Deadhouse, the Bridgeburners go straight for the fortress.

    Against this, Laseen's security is composed of three Hands, Topper, and Possum.

    Granted, a single Hand demolishes the BB's with only two casualties, but ten years later the Claw deploys more than that just for Kalam. Possum was sent after the cultists later, so she knew about them, so was she expecting to have to deal with the cultists herself or did she notice them later, because she doesn't seem to know K&D are going after the Deadhouse, but if she didn't know that, she should have more guards. Thoughts?

    Attachments is still different from emotions, though. Obi Wan can have feelings for Satine all he likes, he doesn't hide or fail to acknowledge them, but he's able to control himself when it counts. Anakin suppresses his, but that's him failing to follow the teachings, not the teachings themselves.

    I'm not sure it would have made a difference to Anakin's fall, whether you're allowed to have attachments or not, a risk to your wife's life is still an effective threat. He still would have wanted to save Padme, Sidious would still have been able to dangle that in front of him, while Yoda would not.

    I'm not really sure where the idea that the Jedi suppress their emotions comes from. They're all about their feelings 'Trust your feelings' 'Be mindful of your feelings' and the like. No one ever preaches 'don't have emotions, they teach control. Anakin's problem is that he can't control himself, his emotions push him into doing things like massacring the Tuskens.

    Reread. I was overly negative in the OP, this is an amazing read, but Wu's constant abuse of everyone around him is still hard to stomach, he expects Dancer to always have his back but never returns the favour
