    Title: Yesterday
    Author: Lennon/McCartney and George Lucas (as butchered by wawoot)
    Genre: Songfic (Angst, Irony)
    Timeframe: Post-ROTS
    Summary: Darth Vader tries to figure out what went wrong...

    Ani, I'm pregnant
    All my troubles seemed so far away
    That's... that's wonderful!
    Now it looks as though they're here to stay
    I'm afraid in your anger, you killed her
    Oh I believe in yesterday

    Don't try it, Anakin
    I'm not half the man I used to be
    There's a shadow hanging over me
    There he is... He's still alive...
    Oh yesterday came suddenly

    Why she had to go
    Anakin, you're breaking my heart
    I don't know, she wouldn't say
    You're going down a path I can't follow!
    I said something wrong
    I pledge myself to your teachings
    Now I long for yesterday

    Hold me like you did by the lake on Naboo
    Love was such an easy game to play
    No, it's because I'm so in love with YOU!
    Now I need a place to hide away
    Behind this mask
    Oh I believe in yesterday

    Mm mm mm mm mm mm mmmmm...
    Pooooooh... Khhhhhhhh....

    Well this was my first (and hopefully only!) attempt at a songfic... It's been rattling around in my head for weeks so I finally decided to write it down... There's probably not much to comment on here, so feel free to post a little smiley face or something if you liked it (PMs are fine too!) Thanks for reading! =)/>

    Aw, I liked it! I especially loved the way you worked the quotes from the movies in - they fit perfectly with the lyrics!

    Great job! =D=

    Great interspersion of the lines from the movie and an appropriate song.

    Oh I really liked that. How you intermingled the movie lines and the song lyrics only, and din't add any other words - a great effect.

    Great job, and I hope this isn't your last songfic! :D

    :_| OMG!!! That was so heartbreaking how the song lyrics matched perfectly with the movie quotes... don't worry, wawoot, you did an amazing job with this... I know it's hard to write songfics... Great job!
