    Title: Time for a Change... Or Two: An AU Vignette​
    Genre: AU, vignette, humor​
    Characters: Owen, Beru, baby Luke and Leia​
    Note: Written for the Mod!Challenge in which we were to "Write a story about any kind of change or new beginning. Angsty death vignettes, lovey-dovey new relationship mush, and everything in between is welcome." Well, I wrote about two changes... actually, three: 1) Beru and Owen go from being childless to taking in Owen's niece and nephew, and before they even get them settled into their new home, 2 & 3) the babies need their diapies change. That evil Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi, must have given them too much apple juice.​
    Disclaimer: It's all George Lucas', and I'm just dancing in his sandbox.​

    An AU Vignette

    Beru and Owen each held one of the twins as they went back inside. The later glanced down at the squirming bundle in his arms and was charmed when the cherubic face smiled brightly up at him... that was until he felt a certain movement in the diaper region followed shortly thereafter by an undeniable stench.

    “Um, Beru!” Owen’s voice sounded panicked.

    Beru turned to look at him as she anxiously asked, “What’s wrong?”

    “Could you take care of this?” He held his charge out to her.

    She frowned in disapproval. “Her name is Leia, not ‘This’.”

    “Yeah, yeah, I know, but could you take care of her?”

    Realization dawned on her of what was wrong when the reek of a dirty diaper reached her nose. She chuckled as she said, “Okay. Here, take Luke.”

    The two awkwardly exchanged twins.

    “Hi, buddy,” Owen greeted the infant boy who looked up at him with big, innocent blue eyes. “You wouldn’t drop a load on me like your sister did, will you? No, you won’t, because we’re men.”

    While he was speaking, Beru was already removing Leia’s diaper at the changing table. She smirked when she heard Owen gasp.

    “Oh no you didn’t... Beru!”

    Laughing, she replied, “Looks like you get to do some more male bonding.”

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh] Alexis, this is FUN! I don't think I've ever read a Luke and Leia raised together by the Lars fic. [face_batting] :D If you ever feel like expanding this - I'll definitely follow it. :)
