DRABBLE FIC: Dark Queen Rising (IV-VI)
Title: Dark Queen Rising (Drabbles: IV-VI)
Fandom: Star Wars - Episodes 1-111
Genre: Alternate Timeline/Universe
Summary: An alternate Sith plan and the hunt begins. An AU SW story told in drabbles (100 word segments.)
Warning: Disturbing content, bound to get worse.
Amidala's fortress on Telia was serviced by Nemodians; faithful, frightened and expendable.
There was a human wet nurse for the twins and when she was no longer needed, a Nemodian nanny took her place, getting rid of the body as neatly as putting away a spoon.
One day, while feeding Luke, the nanny tried to coerce him into eating something he didn't like. A scream of 'NO!" and the fork went flying, its sharp prongs embedding in a far wall.
Amidala handed the fork back to Luke, smiling. "Try again, darling," she instructed, aiming it at his nurse.
Three years later and no sign, except for dreams.
Dreams of Padme's sweet smiles, melting into flames as the Jedi temple burned and she fled into the night, taking his heart and hopes with her. Anakin always awoke covered in sweat, his precognition failing him even as Obi-Wan implored him to relax, to let go of his emotions, to let the Force return naturally.
"To hells with The Force!" Anakin screamed at him, before collapsing in grief.
Sighing, Obi-Wan only held him close. "I'd agree, except there is nothing else," he whispered into Anakin's hair.
It being the truth only made it worse.
Luke and Leia sparred as soon as they could walk, always under Amidala's careful eye.
Both had been instructed to touch the tip of a low-powered lightsaber and the subsequent injury made an impression neither one would ever forget. The boy was the angrier of the two, but the sister cannier and Amidala's predictions changed from day to day, watching as they fought.
The boy will win. His potential rage is too great. to The girl will triumph. She is duplicitous and smarter. to thinking it was a shame she couldn't have two apprentices.
But that was never an option.
