1st Drabble and it's Star Wars!
My first official lj drabble. The other ones aren’t technically, drabbles you know. I had written them long ago. But this really came to me while wasting time in the office.




Murderess





She had killed Anakin.

“Have you come for revenge?” she whispered.

Obi-Wan looked at the glassy walls, at the mosaic embedded in the floor, at the gossamer fine drapes on the delicate furniture.

At everything and anything but her.

“No.”

But I gave her the knife.

“Have you come to kill me?”

The puddle of light danced with the curtain...

“I have come for you to kill me,” he whispered.

He looked at her then.

Her eyes were dry but sane. The bitter red line that was her mouth was sharp. He could feel the slashes.

If he looked hard, he could see where she bled.

I killed him first. When I convinced you to send him away. We both did.

He gave her the knife.

It passed through his ribs as easily as a needle through sand.

“You are lucky, Obi-Wan,” she whispered, watching him fall.

“Death is too good for me.”





Fin

Oh. Dark. *shudders*

All right, to be honest, I have trouble to understand what happened exactly. It reminds me of that drawing of Padmé hiding a knife to kill Anakin so I suppose this is where you got the inspiration for that fic. But I don't understand why Obi-Wan wants her to kill him and why Padmé obliges. I believe things would be smoother if we got more of Padmé's motivations and state of mind. And well, I'm just confused you know. *thoughtful*

Or maybe I'm just tired and that's why I don't really understand... :P

Hi ma amie! Yes, it is supposed to be confusing... There's a history there that's only hinted at through Obi-Wan's thoughts. *g* Maybe one day I'll re-write the scene from Padme's PoV.. or I'll write a prequel that'll make it more understandable...

That'd be great. Dark!Padmé is always a good thing. :p (There's always that part of me that wants her to say yes to Anakin when he gives her his "let's rule" speech ;)) I'd really like to see a prequel of this.

I was doing housekeeping on my lj (changing all the 'fanfic' tags to 'fan fiction', etc) and I came across this. My eyes must have jumped over this or something. What picture is this?

Now I think about it, I'm not sure it was a drawing... *ponders* But I remember that when they drew concepts about Padmé, there was something involving a knife to kill Anakin but George didn't want this. I think I read it in the ROTS making of or something... I don't know if the kept this drawing or not.

Thank goodness! What a frightful idea. *shudders*

*nods* I think they wanted Padmé to kill Anakin once she discovered he was lost to save him from himself or something... Sounds like something Obi-Wan would do, just not Padmé.

Definitely. She's too invested in that gorgeous body. :p
