Luke, Leia, both senators AU (you'll have to do some tinkering with Luke's last name but oh well)
Generally, he views the phrase “their eyes met across a crowded room” as cliché, but Luke Kryze can’t deny that it perfectly describes what just happened; he had looked up from his conversation with the Senator from Pantora to look straight at a set of warm brown irises fixed quite insistently on him from across the gallery hosting the political talk.
And he knows instantly - that’s her; Princess and Senator Leia Organa, the girl Ben told him to find, their contact in the Rebellion…someone Ben wanted trained alongside him, maybe even by Fulcrum.
This took me all day. I was rolling in “Satine Lives and Adopts Luke as Her Son and Obi-Wan Stays on Mandalore and Everyone is Happy as They Can Be Under the Empire” theories. Consequently that led to a lot of plotting.
And a possible series of shorts because I kinda want to do this now. Luke Kryze has captured this fangirl’s heart. Seriously, he was the only thing I could think of when you said “both senators” - in this case, both Jedi as well, though there are some small differences I can’t get into right now.
Hope you enjoyed!
