Interesting Meta On Anakin/Padmé

The Mantilla & Converse Tumblr answered a reader’s question on what she thinks drew Padmé to Anakin. I believe she gave a very thoughtful answer:

But for all her responsibility, Padmé herself is still a child at this point, and her caring for Anakin is in some ways childish. She is responsive to Anakin’s immediate emotional needs, but she’s not really thinking of his future. The danger that the Council sees is real, as we know from what happens later, but at this point that’s not a factor for Padmé at all. Neither of them are wrong, exactly, but neither really sees the full picture – the Council only sees Anakin’s potential darkness, and Padmé only sees his need for love.
