The blue image flickered into life again. It buzzed like an insect caught against a light. Anakin made no effort to glance at it – didn’t move. He could move, but refused to dignify whatever Dooku had to say with his attention.

“Anakin.” A fond satisfaction of a word; it made Anakin’s head shoot up, jarring his injuries. It hurt his eyes to see it, yet his heart thudded at the sound of the voice.

“S-sir…?” Cracked and ruined, yet still a groan of hope. It’s not real. 

A transparent hand waved elegantly as the hologram clicked toward Anakin’s body on metal claws. An implement rose from a sterile tray, sharp and horribly familiar. “My dear boy, you have been so brave…” He’s using the Force – it’s not him… “Indeed, I am proud of you. Such passion, such resistance. Astonishing!”

Anakin looked away, teeth grinding in fury. A spectral hand ghosted affectionately across Anakin’s face. He flinched. The buzzing grew as the silvery device flickered to life, hovering just shy of Anakin’s skin. It’s Dooku, not Palpatine; Palpatine would never…

“Now I need you to break for me, Anakin. I need you to scream. Do you think you can do that?”

Thank you - that's what I love about drabbles - having to capture something in so few words. This just wandered into my head - poor Anakin.

This one's my favorite, of course :)

GUH. It's dark and creepy, and I can totally envision Palpatine cajoling Anakin into "breaking" and screaming for him...

Palpatine would never

And that tickles my Palpakin fuzzy spot -- of COURSE he wouldn't oh no no no no! (my crack!Palpatine just killed Dooku for hurting his precious Anakin and then proceeded to COMFORT ANAKIN LIKE MAD)
