In revenge of the sith, Anakin was put before the council on behalf of Palpatine to be his personal representative on the council. Upon hearing this, Master Windu denied Anakin the rank of Master. Something the poster boy for the clone wars had wanted and expected for a long time. He had an apprentice of his own who referred to him as master, and so did others below him in rank. Not to mention, the rank of master would grant anakin the access he needed to the restricted section of the jedi archives. Full with jedi and sith knowledge that might lead him to his path of saving padme from death. Enraged, but knowing his place, Anakin took a seat eventually after voicing his anger.

In today’s fan fiction let’s look at what would have happened had anakin not taken a seat.
In the novel revenge of the sith by Matthew Stover, Anakin actually was taunting Windu in his mind. He said this and I quote

Anakin matched his stare. Perhaps I’ll take yours. His own voice, inside his head, had a hot black fire that smoked from the depths of his furnace heart. You think you can stop me from saving my love? You think you can make me watch her die? Go ahead and Vaapad this, you—

So in the official novel signed off by George Lucas written by Matthew Stover, anakin was already in the mindset to fight Mace Windu after being denied the rank of master. So what if he actually went through with it. What if that furnace of a heart burned with rage and he didn’t heed to obi-wan’s call. There’s two scenarios here. Anakin can either refuse to take a seat, and converse with Windu and the council. Both of which can take us different routes, but the avenue I want to write about today is Anakin opening up. So let’s take the initial hot headed approach, and see where it takes us in this version.

Anakin grabs his lightsaber from his belt and walks towards Mace Windu as he ignites it and says
“I’ll take yours instead”

Master Yoda immediately stops Anakin with the force, which proves to be very difficult for him as Anakin starts to break through by the second, his powers and anger rising, as the rest of the Jedi Masters get up from their seats, especially obi-wan kenobi to intervene.

Mace Windu is the only one still sitting.

“Everyone take your seats. Master, release Skywalker. Should the boy have something to say, I’m right here.”

Anakin was released. Only some of the masters sat back down, while Kenobi and a few others like Plo and Kit stood motionless at this outrage.

Anakin stood there, lightsaber ignited. Eyes beaming with a ice blue colder than space itself.

“Skywalker. For years I’ve doubted you. I never trusted you. And now, you just proved it to everyone else. Your emotions are too rampant. Yes, you are gifted, but so am I, yet I control my emotions which let me tell you boy run hotter than yours. But I will not be a spectacle of them. I will not bend to them. I will master them. Such as now. And you are lucky that I have.”

Anakin sheathed his weapon. He came to his sense, if rage were visible Anakin would be unseen to the eye, covered in it.

“You’ve patronized me since I came here. You’ve held back every decision I ever wanted to make. My mother died because of this council’s ridiculous rules. And now she-”

Anakin stopped himself. He almost gave up the biggest secret of his life.

In this fan-fiction, we take a look at what would have happened if Anakin didn’t take a seat, but instead, tried to fight Mace. It’s a bit insane, but that’s what I’m here for.
How do you think this one will end? Let me know in the comments and maybe I’ll choose your part of the story for part 2 coming next week!

Thanks for watching! May the force be with you!
