Summary: Painful events unearth some equally painful memories and the tiniest ray of hope.Author's notes:
This story was my contribution to this year's Constrict Zine, kid fic theme. Thank you Sian for putting the Zine together year after year. The story references one of my earlier stories, 'Standing Witness' but can be read without knowledge of those events. Many thanks to Mona and Merry Amelie for the thorough betas and helpful suggestions. I couldn't have done it without them. As always, I couldn't resist making a few final tweaks, so all mistakes are mine.
Recs and Reviews
This story took my breath away when I first read it. It's very beautiful and thoughtful, heartbreakingly sad, but not dark and hopeless. It explores different ways a Jedi can become a parent and leave a legacy.
