FIC: Mortal Instruments | 1, Adoption - moonspinner
FIC: Mortal Instruments | 1, Adoption
Despite every ounce of common sense within me, I have started posting another story Mortal Instruments. *G* Still, I'm writing it in very much the same style as Mirror Darkly - with the odd, hop-from-one-time-to-another, happy-go-lucky way of that tale. And this time, there'll be no sequels! :D

fialleril , our recent discussions inspired this change of heart so I'm holding you personally responsible for this!

Title: Mortal Instruments
Fandom: Star Wars
Main Characters: Palpatine, Padmé.
Summary: Snippets from the life of Padmé Naberrie, ward of Palpatine of Naboo.

Here's the first chapter beneath the cut.

Mortal Instruments

1, Adoption

(3 months)

The small family huddled into each other for protection, father and grandparents instinctively forming a protective circle around the mother, the baby and the little girl.

They oozed fear and desperation and Sidious smiled at the hopelessness of their defiance.

“Kill the spares.”

Like living swords forged from red metal, the Red Gaurds descended on them. A blur of violence and it was over.

The little baby lay in the still warm, still flexible arms of her mother, bawling.

“Bring it.”

She was presented to her new “father”. He stared down at her red face with a benevolent smile.

Slowly, her tears dried as her tiny heart filled with native fear.


Current Mood: creative writing again

I'm thrilled you're starting something new if only because now I'm not lagging a year behind everyone else ;)

I'm confused, of course, but intrigued. *grin*

In many ways, your recent feedback on Mirror Darkly really encouraged me to start posting this. ::hugs::

Ah, I knew you wanted to write some insidious Mara Jade fic. Is this it?

Oh, and is this suppose to be some weird drabble with 111 words as the limit?

Thanks but alas, this is not the Mara Jade story. I'm still working on that one. :-P The 111 was just a coincidence. Chapters will vary from short to long.

Oh, now you're blaming this on me, and I didn't even know about it! I am appalled. Simply appalled. ;)

I have a feeling your dark!Padmé will end up being rather darker than mine. Or maybe it will be only a difference of kind, and not of degree. Either way, I suspect that I'm really going to pity Anakin in this universe. His life can't possibly turn out well. ;)

And you killed Sola in the first chapter! *sobs* I think that may be the most tragic thing about this fic. ;)

P.S. Where's Kitster? *hopeful grin*
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: September 20th, 2007 07:19 am (UTC) (Link)
I guess I could put Kitster somewhere... *devilish grin*

I'm sorry I didn't tell you! It was a very impulsive story, I promise. I don't know how dark your P will get, but you're right - it'll probably be a difference of kind. Poor Anakin. He never gets any breaks. :D
fialleril From: fialleril Date: September 21st, 2007 10:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, please do! I imagine you could do something positively devilish with him. :D

Apology accepted, Captain Naberrie. ;)

Anakin really doesn't get any breaks, does he? But maybe this time he can at least avoid being turned into a human torch...

Ooh, intriguing beginning. "Kill the spares" reminds me of Harry Potter and I wonder who the girl is- though something tells me it's Mara. BTW, the title? At first I thought you had started a Mortal Instruments series fan fic... But then with the Red Guards, I realized it was Star Wars. Anyways, great start and I'd love to read more.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: September 19th, 2007 12:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks for the feedback! Actually I did borrow the phrase from Potter. It's the second time I've used it! :-P

I really tried to come up with another title but Mortal Instruments really captured the theme of this story.
