Title: At Her Desk
Disclaimer: I do not own Star Wars and am not making any money with this drabble.
Word Count: 200
Rating and Warnings: PG-13, non-explicit reference to sexual themes.
Summary: Padmé thinks of an absent Anakin.
Author's Note: Meme response for [livejournal.com profile] wyncatastrophe, who requested Padmé + Anakin.


Her painted finger drew a circle on the smooth desk. She felt like a crab on the shores of a lake, moving sideways, forced to carry the weight of her velvet and silk shell; heavy and ponderous. Anakin made her feel light and wonderful, stripped away her layers and let her bask in his glow. Beautiful and vivid like the light off the sea –

Are you fancying yourself a poet, Padmé Naberrie? It was her mother’s voice, dry and amused. Sola was the artistic one. Sola wrote poetry in her spare time and spent her days designing beautiful buildings. Now Padmé felt stuck again. A speech against further concentration of power in the Office of the Chancellor, a proposal for a diplomatic envoy to the CIS, and a riposte to Ask Aak’s suggestion that Naboo’s policies were hopelessly out of touch with the spirit of the times – all these things Padmé could write with ease. But Anakin’s smile? His large, warm hands on her – she was struck mute at the thought of it, her cheeks flushing, her fingers splayed flat across the metal desk.

Padmé’s breath clouded its surface slightly as she shed her cloak and reached under her dress.

Oh, nicely done! I love how it's the personal things Padmé can't put into words.

Thank you - I hope it fulfilled your Padmé/Anakin craving somewhat.

Thanks muchly - I had fun writing it - and I did feel rather daring! I like writing the moments around these sorts of things and it was interesting being in Padmé's head. To often I'm only in there through the lens of Palpatine's view of her.

YESSSSSS of course it's difficult to put that stuff into words, they require ACTIONS! Deliciously naughty actions! And then of course someone walks in on her (it varies depending on who ones ships her with, naturally)
