my father's shadow

Father and Son

@kaelinaloveslomaris gave me a prompt of Vader and Luke surviving RotJ, Vader carrying Luke, and Luke holding Vader’s hand.  (I may have been grumbling about Dreamwalker again.)  So have a ficlet!  It immediately follows a slightly different fight on the second Death Star.

A Difficult Conversation

Since I was thoroughly annoyed with several Dreamwalker characters, I wrote the next installment of Father and Son instead.

“It’s because, without your bravery in the face of all that’s happened to you, without your constant scheming behind my back, without that fire of hatred and contempt and hope in your eyes when you look at me…” He hissed out a breath. “In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore. And, whatever the cost, I refuse to let that light be extinguished.“

“You want to know why I did what I did?“ His dark brows drew together as if he were only now allowing himself to consider this question. "Its fairly simple, actually. It’s because, without your bravery in the face of all that’s happened to you, without your constant scheming behind my back, without that fire of hatred and contempt and hope in your eyes when you look at me…” He hissed out a breath. “In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore.

In honor of May 4th, have a short sequel to Father and Son.  (Original story: https://miriannemiri.tumblr.com/post/159502575604/father-and-son)  The sequel is from Luke’s point of view and shows him waking up in the medical ward, a bit of his perspective of how things went in the second Death Star’s throne room, and his reactions

Barbara heard a knock on her front door and she scrambled to answer the door. Seeing her dad standing there she let out a small laugh before running back to the kitchen. “You’re early! I’m still cooking.” She grumbled, sticking her tongue out at him playfully. She was cooking their favorite meal to make when he was teaching her to cook when she was younger. Glancing over at him she gave him another smile, “How was work today?”

Cleo kept quiet now, listening carefully. Barely breathing.

“You want to know why I did what I did?” His dark brows drew together as if he were only now allowing himself to consider this question. “It’s fairly simple, actually. It’s because, without your bravery in the face of all that’s happened to you, without your constant scheming behind my back, without that fire of hatred and contempt and hope in your eyes when you look at me …” He hissed out a breath. “In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore.

All she could do was stare at him until he scowled and turned away.

“Satisfied, princess? Now, stop asking me stupid questions.”

I think this is my favorite quote of Magnus. It’s just perfect.

Shadowsinger Chapter 3: Meeting Rhys & Cass

Tumblr: Chapters 1 & 2

AO3: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3

Summary: Azriel is taken by his father and dumped in Lord Devlon’s Illyrian war camp where he is immediately challenged to fight and encounters Rhysand and Cassian for the first time. Minor physical violence, but nothing crazy.

Freefall

“Hey, don’t write yourself off yet. It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on. Just try your best. Try everything you can. And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away.”

 - Jimmy Eat World

I’d never flown before, but one shot into the air and I was pretty sure it was the most amazing feeling despite the nausea I could feel rolling through my father’s grip on me. He held me by the neck of my shirt by only one tightly clenched hand as if to say he would take me with him, but he wouldn’t try very hard about it.

Even with my body whipping around on the wind, I loved the sensation. My body came alive at the taste of freedom it had never been allowed and I could feel my wings tensing behind my back to try it for themselves. They stretched outward trying to push and pull on the air as we flew, to see what it would feel like.

My father hadn’t told me where we were going. Only that I wasn’t coming back. I knew, though, as we followed the steep peaks of the mountains ever higher that we were still in Illyrian territory.

  • Draco: [To Hermione] You want to know why I always treated you like that? Its fairly simple, actually. It's because, without your bravery in the face of all that's happened to you, without your constant scheming behind my back, without that fire of hatred and contempt and hope in your eyes when you look at me... In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore. And, whatever the cost, I refuse to let that light be extinguished.

“Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is also darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light? It’s something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist.” (Falling Kingdoms)

“Darkness will always try to extinguish the light. The light will always try to repress the darkness.” (Rebel Spring)

“In the shadow my father has cast over my entire life, you are the only light I can see anymore. And, whatever the cost, I refuse to let that light be extinguished” (Gathering Darkness)
