I did it..... for the first time in so long....I drew...

Fragmented Star Systems
Chapter Nine: Comfort of Home
Summary- Vader is exhausted with running the Empire. Those stresses leave him the moment he gets home to his son, Beru and the comforts of his home.
Vader entered his home to the sounds of delighted laughter. He immediately felt the weight of the galaxy fall off of him. He had not spent near enough time with his son since taking over the Empire and was feeling it.
The second thing he noticed was a painfully familiar spicy smell. It was enough to immediately transport him back in time to the days of his childhood; clinging to his mother’s legs as she showed him the exact process to make their family heirloom. The only sort of heirloom a slave was allowed to have.
He felt uncomfortably blank as he walked into the kitchen. The scent was causing his chest to attempt to feel things he didn’t fully remember how to. It hurt as physically as the ache in his legs did.
The pain of his memories evaporated the moment Luke caught sight of him. His young face lit up brilliantly and he abandoned his position at the counter to run to Vader.
“Daddy! You’re home! We’re getting ready to make some Rzuh’zan , but Aunt Beru wanted to wait for you!”

Star Crossed Chapter Five:
Interlude-Ten Years Earlier-
Summary: Anakin overhears the end of a conversation and jumps to a painful conclusion.
“....too dangerous. I can’t train him, Padme. I’m sorry.”
Anakin had to stifle his gasp with his hand. Were they talking about him? Did Obi-Wan not want him?
“Because of the Jedi Council?” Padme’s voice was sharp and disbelieving. Obi-Wan must have replied silently as she was almost immediately speaking again. “So what happens to Anakin now?”
“The Jedi Council will arrange to have him taken home.”
Anakin’s gasp turned into a choked back sob. He didn’t want to go back to Tatooine! He’d be made a slave again! He didn’t want to be a slave. He was free ! Not only that, but he was Se’ae’ahs . Why would Obi-Wan want to send him back?
