I am so excited posting this for I never did any drabbles before. Chitter-chatter box that I am fanfics of mine always have epic length, going "Blah, blah, blah!". But then I saw earlybird-obi-wan and other brilliant fanfic writers doing it. And even though DarthUncle had no time to give me his opinion and no Kahara was asked to beta this, I sat down and had a try. Suddenly, I had various twists in my sobriety: 1. Valour 2. Honour 3. Sacrifice 4. Defeat 5. Victory Reader warning: Please excuse my weird English! I am German. English is only my Second language! Here it comes: “Twists in sobriety”, drabbles 1: Week I 1. Valour Little Garoche Tarkin is crying because of his sire. Because of poisonous teachings. You had your own share of those. Valour is to stand up for one's ideals. Your foster father, Chetan Anil, taught you that. You kneel down to be at eye level with the boy. “Your heart can be your compass. If you allow it to be thus.” His gaze widens. “B… but… I… I am… not… supposed to...” “What?” you ask mildly in order not to scare him. “Not to be human? To have genuine feelings for another being?” You will help the poor child to heal. 2. Honour You cannot believe your eyes when you watch her walking into Agent Callus' office. “Long time no see,” you mutter to yourself. She has put on weight, at least thirty kilograms, but it is definitely her. You always remember a face. Her brown hair has gotten slight whips of grey. She still is an extreme winter type when it comes to her garments. This time she wears a tunic in midnight blue. When the door closes behind her, you make a mental note to contact one of your best people to hunt her down. It is a question of honour. 3. Sacrifice Your fiancé matters to you and she knows that. But you both agreed on saving Jedi artefacts from the grip of her uncle. A little sacrifice for a much greater course. “Coruscant again?” she asks sleepily, hugging her pillow instead of you. “He wants to find Ahch-To,” you answer and lean down to plant a kiss on her right shoulder blade. “I must find the map before he does.” Suddenly, Nagina is wide awake. “That map is a myth.” “And Sheev believes in myths as far as we know. Don´t we?” “Please be careful!” she begs. Nagina always says that. 4. Defeat The Aotan cathedral will come down on the four of you. There is no escape. Not even for the child your lover carries under her heart. Lord Vader made sure of that. In defeat, you put your arms around your family. All of you will die because Saro tampered with the mind of the Sith. The visions of his dead wife were meant to heal his scarred heart, not to commit suicide. Strangely, your last thoughts are about the woman who implored you once to let your heart be your compass. You should have been more like your father. Cold. 5. Victory Today´s events are a true victory for you. Not because Galen works his scientific miracles for your project. You were given a couple of days off. The best place to spend them is Lothal. It is an unimportant provincial world, but your most favourite person in the universe happens to live there. Not that she had much choice in that. Gazing at your loyal Death Troopers makes you shake your head. Their lot won't be needed. The only scary thing about Ina is her wits and the children she teaches. You cannot stand children. They are even worse than Tarkin. "Who is who": 1. Valour = Nagina my OC tells the story how she meet Garoche Tarkin for the first time (41 BBY). 2. Honour = (Wilhuff) Tarkin sees Nagina entering the office of Agent Callus (20 BBY). 3. Sacrifice = Lor San Tekka in an intimate setting with his fiancé Nagina (19 BBY). 4.
