BSG - Default

The Jedi's Code

Okay, so I'm about ready to kill TVS, the local Christmas programming station. Or at least they turn into a Christmas programming station on Christmas Eve. USUALLY. Not this year, though, apparently. This year they're carrying on as if nothing is happening, not showing A Christmas Story or anything like that. Ugh. Came home from the family celebration hoping to see it, because typically TVS runs it on a loop for 24 hours, but no dice. Siiiigh.

So to console myself, I'm posting the fic I wrote for imadra_blue, as part of my participation in this year's jedi_mistletoe fic exchange. I know many of you will already have read it, but I like to archive all my work in this journal, so here goes. Feel free to skip if you're sick of it or would prefer not to read it again, I won't mind. ^_^ I'm also adjusting this to fit a fanfic50 prompt, as is usual with all my shortfics.

Title: The Jedi's Code
Fandom/Pairing: Star Wars/Obidala (Obi-Wan Kenobi/Padmé Amidala)
Written For: imadra_blue @ jedi_mistletoe, applied to fanfic50
Prompt: #014 Sacrifice
Characters: Obi-Wan, Padmé, Anakin
Word Count: 2,028
Rating: NC-17 for a sexual scene
Summary: While watching Padmé's funeral, Obi-Wan cannot help but think back to the times he shared with her - as her friend, and as her lover.
Author’s Notes: This went through many incarnations before being submitted to jedi_mistletoe. I was about to rip my hair out over it until Katie got on AIM and consoled me, tossing out a few simple suggestions which I hadn't thought of, but that really made this fic what it ended up being. That's why I'm dedicating it to her, and indeed to all beta readers everywhere. The finished product may look as though it was easy as pie to write, but behind every awesome writer stands an even more awesome beta. In my case, I'm supremely lucky that my beta reader also happens to be my best friend in the world. Without her, this journal, and all of the fic in it, would not exist. You rock, Katie! ^_^
