I haven't had much inspiration/ability to focus on lengthy pieces, so I decided to try drabbles. What I ended up with was Vader's Daughter. I see quite a bit done about Luke and Vader in the fandom, and since the prequel trilogy came out, I see all kinds of people either making graphics or writing about the rather obvious parallels between Leia and her mother, but I very rarely see anything dealing with Leia and her relationship or reactions to Vader. I'm one of the few (possibly only) Star Wars fans I know who can honestly say that Luke was my least favorite of the OT characters. I had an active dislike of him until I was about twelve. I thought he was whiny and disrespectful in ANH; cocky and rude in ESB; and although my opinion of him softened (somewhat) in RotJ, I really wished that more time had been given to Leia's feelings and such upon learning that Vader was her father. I truly love Padme, and I thoroughly enjoy writing her, especially in One Path, which gives me the opportunity to develop a much more satisfying mother/daughter relationship than is possible in canon. That said, having grown up with a Star Wars where "the twins' mother" was largely a non-entity (meaning that she could have been anyone who was "kind but sad" and had given birth to Luke and Leia) I guess I've always wondered why there is such a heavy focus on the father/son dynamic in Star Wars writing to the extent that the father/daughter issues are almost glossed over, either professionally or in fandom. Here's my small contribution.

Title: Vader's Daughter
Chapter Title: 1-6
Author: Lionchilde
Summary: Six connected but separate drabbles dealing with Leia's initial reaction to the revelation she receives from Luke in Return of the Jedi
Rating: PG-13
Genre: General
Pairings/Characters: Focuses on Leia; H/L in the final piece.
A/N:These are connected and very short, but I'm posting them together. I'm much more of an epic fic writer. I have a hard time with short work of any kind, and I really struggle with drabbles, which are not only incredibly short but have a very specific word count. Once in a while, I like to challenge myself, so I set a goal to write exactly six snapshots of Leia's thoughts as Luke walks off to face Vader in ROTJ, and I wanted each one to be a drabble (exactly 100 words). I had the opening line of the first one and the final line of the last one in mind when I began, so my ultimate goal was to communicate everything I envisioned and still get to the last line in the aforementioned number of steps.

PS--I already know that the point of Luke's annoying qualities is that Star Wars is supposed to be about his journey from clueless adolescent to Jedi Knight. That doesn't change my initial reaction to the character. Nobody needs to get all up in arms to defend him.

[livejournal.com profile] polgarawolf wasn't able to request these when I posted my holiday request thing, but I know she's been waiting for this part for a long while. Enjoy, m'dear, whenever you get around to them.

Well, not quite what I planned to do, but at least I wrote something before going to bed. *cough* Sunrise just started...

Anyway. If there are errors, I apologize. Let me know. I think I caught everything, but I mean, geez I'm still laughing and I haven't gotten any sleep yet. VaderCat fans enjoy.

All four here

By popular demand, Vader and his Cat have returned. I'm posting two short sequels along with the original story, with a slight ammendment. The last fic was actually supposed to be [livejournal.com profile] ladybeth's idea about the cat chasing a string on Leia's dress, but somehow it didn't work out. I trust Obi-Wan will be enough in any case.

A/N: Written for [livejournal.com profile] scifi_five. Okay, since I've gotten several requests for ANH-period sequels to this fic, I'm just ammending my notes to say that in this little reality, we're assuming that Executor was commissioned earlier.

This is [livejournal.com profile] polgarawolf's fault. But at least I managed to work in the challenge words for [livejournal.com profile] scifi_five. This isn't specificially canon or One Path, and it's pretty ridiculous, but it's a good ridiculous, so SW fans who need a laugh will all enjoy.

Another random ficlet. I've never written SW before other than my RP characters, but I got this little idea out of nowhere and just decided to write it because the only other ideas I could come up with for this week's [livejournal.com profile] scifi_five challenge didn't fit or I could only work in half the words. I have to admit, though, the Teal'c doing laundry idea was rather brilliant. I'll have to add it to my bunny list. Now let's see if I can get another Games fic or two before Saturday.

Title: Before I Sleep
Author: Lionchilde
Summary: He wondered again why he was doing this...

Rating: G
Length: Around 220 words
Category: Angst
Pairings/Charaters: Luke Skywalker
A/N: Set during ESB, shortly before Luke leaves Dagobah. Written for [livejournal.com profile] scifi_five.
