Vader/Luke is a minor pairing of the Star Wars fandom that most likely did not appear until the mid-1990s. The pairing faced several hurdles: not only did Lucasfilm forbid sexually explicit fan fiction (which many fans felt at the time encompassed all slash, even if non-explicit, but also it was revealed in the second film that Darth Vader was Luke's father.
One of the earliest (if not the first) Vader/Luke stories published was Vader's Child in 1997.
