I am so happy to finally finish this project! This work is a direct inspiration from unto my simple house and ring by @flaccid-rats on ao3. This scene (in chapter 8) stood out to me as something romance novels excel at, and that's sharing the love.
I'd like to share that I made this unnecessarily difficult on the details. Seriously, I was skimming the prequels back and forth just to get this vague room that could possibly be Naboo. Also, their outfits were a whole personal growth arc for me separately. To be honest I wish I went with a different gown for Leia because she just doesn't seem to fit the grand elegant formal attire she would wear in the scene. This gown was originally a sort of beach dress, and it took me this long to realize this (sigh). I am however super happy with the end result. I messed with multiple layers in hopes to make the scene more warm and calm. The flowers were my favorite finishing detail, and I think they are the star detail of the whole thing.
In regards to some scene details from the fanfic, I get that I put Han Solo by himself in the back, I had to hide him there because there would have been no other way to make him fit in the fanart lol. On the final detail, I felt like giggling the whole time I worked on Din's little reminder on Luke. I got so distracted that I had to redo the coloring several times. Very much worth it in the end!

Random Rebel Trooper: Ma’am, are these two bothering you?
Leia: Yes, but unfortunately, the blonde is my brother, and the other is the man I love; so I’m stuck with them,

So yet again this week I’ve been bombarded on various social media accounts about how ReY iS aN oVeRpOwErEd MaRy SuE and then go on and copy/paste the same old argument that hasn’t changed one iota, not one word, not one sentiment since 2016. Poor writing. Never lost a fight. Etc. blah blah blah blah.
Leia at 19 was an Imperial Senator. She was already working with her parents and their rebel cause.
Luke at 19 was loved. He was fed. He was doted on by his Aunt Beru. At the same time Leia was being tortured by Darth Vader, Luke was in his garage making zoom zoom noises with his toy shuttle.
Rey at 19 had grown up fighting to keep her meager possessions. She fought to keep her abandoned AT-AT home. She marked the days since she was abandoned with slash marks on her wall. Rey had to scavenge for parts to trade for food portions. Rey knew loneliness and hunger and a need to survive. Hell, she bit a guy to keep him from taking BB-8.
Maybe… just maybe… Rey had a sharper edge to her. Maybe she was a tougher, better fighter because she had to be her entire life. Her life depended on it from the moment she was separated from her parents.
Also there’s the whole thing about the Force being its own entity and going to who and where it’s needed to balance out the galaxy. Darth Vader was plunging the galaxy into the darkness and the Force anointed and helped Luke to bring the galaxy back into balance. Just as it did for Rey to face Kylo and bring nature/life/the galaxy into balance.
The Force doesn’t require leveling up like it’s some kind of video game.

I’m obsessed with the idea of Vader running into one of his kids and being mercilessly bullied by her.
Meme context: The original “Wouldn’t you like to know Weather Boy?” was actually staged by a father and son. With that background, I thought it would be fun to remake with the Skywalkers.

[image description: it's a drawing of Leia Organa as a Jedi. She's wearing all white, with a hood and a purple lightsaber. She has Silka beads hanging from the fabric that covers her head, instead of a padawan braid. End of i.d]
Enjoyed this one a little too much?

I keep thinking of this AU where Luke and Leia always knew there was someone missing from their lives but just couldn’t figure it out, and then when they meet they just instantly know that ah, that’s the person. And like. Also know each other’s names instantly?? Yeah.
