star wars pirate AU a.k.a. "pirates of the kessel run: curse of the millenium pearl"
so I was listening to Davy Jones’ theme for hours, and went “hey this reminds me of a sad, nautical mash-up of Across the Stars and the Imperial March”… then “hey, Anakin/Vader is basically Davy Jones, Captain of the Flying Dutchman Executor” and then this AU spawned in my brain. and He’s A Pirate = the Force theme and Two Hornpipes (Tortuga) = the Star Wars Cantina?? the parallels are based more on personalities/roles, ignore family relations :P
also I just wanted to try completely reversing the environment of the Anakin vs Obi-Wan final duel… (not that typhoons and giant space kraken are much of an improvement, ahaha)
“But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”
"I get ribbed for that line because it was so whiny. And I remember at the time, I had to make it as juvenile as possible so that I can show how Luke matures later. So it should be embarrassing. It should be whiny and childish. But boy, has it come back to haunt me. I don’t think I ever got the chance to finally pick them up." - Mark Hamill
