Should Vader and The Emperor even know who Yoda is?
Time

Maybe Yoda knows of the Emperor and Anakin because Obi-wan told him of them when he became a spirit, or even actually showed him what happened in the past through his new Force Spirit powers. There’s also Yoda saying he’s been watching Luke, and something else is Luke mentioning Dagobah being familiar. Maybe Luke was brought to Dagobah when he was like two, and thanks to his strong connection to the Force Yoda was able to recognize his presence within it.

Yoda, along with other Jedi Masters, should be secluded from the Galaxy, with a Jedi Knight needing to further their training by seeking one out. Was Obi-Wab ever referenced as a Jedi Master in the OT? Maybe there could be a mediator between a Master and a Knight, an older Knight who helps apprentices start their journeys and eventually lead them to a master they themselves trained under. If Obi was a Master it still works fine, just that he was a younger Master who still wasn’t fully enlightened.

How you pictured Anakin pre-PT
Time

Although I’m apart of the “prequel generation” the whole OOT concept is something I like, so I imagine Vader looking like Sebastian Shaw in his 20s/30s for continuity. I have several ideas for SW, one of which is that in my PT there really was a Darth Vader that trained with Anakin who saw Vader as a role model of sorts. They both fall to the DS, but have different ideas which results in a duel. Vaders life support is based on the armor the OG Vader used.

What do you LIKE about the EU?
Time

I like this line from the Return of the Jedi Novelization:

"Vader's pulse and breathing were machine-regulated, so they could not quicken; but
something in his chest became more electric around his meetings with the Emperor; he could not say how. A feeling of fullness, of power, of dark and demon mastery - of secret lusts, unrestrained passion, wild submission - all these things were in Vader's heart as he neared his Emperor. These things and more..."

Is there way to make Midichlorian manipulation more mystical?

I'm doing some short stories about SW and I want to implement Plagueis's infamous ability but rewrite it where Midichlorians aren't apart of the Force at all. (In my stories Midichlorians are propaganda created to explain Jedi powers and those who have them are considered mutants by those who can't wield the Force.) Anyone wanna toss out some ideas?

Oh my God I know lmao. Like, even in the EU Vader almost never interacted with C-3P0, and none of those times he ever was like "Wow I really love him he's like a piece of home" or whatever that comic tries to conjure up trying to make Vader a sympathetic character. Not saying he is or isn't, but using this is just trying way too hard and is tacky and ultimately makes no sense. 

Although the good thing is that story showed up in Tales I believe, stories that aren't supposed to be taken seriously.

I'm not so sure how to feel about the "power creep" when it came to Star Wars Jedi in the EU. Like Jedi are capable of planetary destruction with the Force and in the EU certain blasters can emit just light like the Remote droid that Luke used to train in A new Hope, meaning Jedi can think and have reflexes that are faster than Light. On one hand I think it's cool, on the other hand I also like them being just superhuman levels.
