What to Write - the results so far

So far in the What to Write poll I posted before the weekend, Kaleidoscope is the clear winner. The story itself got 50% of the votes for 'Active work-in-progress story' and 'Active work in progress story' got 66.7% of the votes for 'What to Work on this Weekend'.

So... I just sent off the next chapter to my beta!

The stairwell got narrower and narrower with each turn, until finally she had to curl herself completely against him. They reached the last bend and he stumbled. Her hand, which was folded into his tunic and causing all sorts of horrible palpitations in his heart, curled into a claw and tightened so painfully that she clutched at his skin… he felt like if she as clutching his heart.
Crushing it.
“Don’t drop me!” she cried, panicked.
Vader pressed his free hand flat against the wall, and found his balance. For a moment he just breathed, and he couldn’t speak until that painful grip loosened.

The poll is still open, so if you're invested in any one of these stories, do feel free to cast your votes. :D

Oooh. You are mean! ;) Now I'll be waiting with bated breath until you post the whole chapter. :D But even in this little snippet, I have to say that I absolutely love your use of metaphor and imagery. One almost has to feel sorry for Vader. Almost.

Well I caved and posted it unbeta'd at ff.net but I may take it down soon. So you'd better hurry and take a look at it there... *g*

One almost has to feel sorry for Vader. Almost.

Yeah, it's twisted that way, isn't it? Technically, Padme is his captive but she treats him so badly you can't help but pity (almost) the bugger.

I loves it. :) You have such a deft talent for the subconscious.

Bugger just about describes him. *snorts* Though I can't help but think that, evil as he is, at least he's not as whiny as canon Anakin... And even though I somewhat pity Vader, I've got to admire Padme for keeping up that attitude of cold disdain...
