AU week 2017

OOM: On the eve of the Battle of Endor, Rebellion General Bodhi Rook is sent on a mission to extract Imperial scientists. He finds himself face to face with someone he never thought he’d see again. Someone he’d buried, along with his heart.

[Warnings for trauma, violence, potentially suicidal contemplation, serious relationship tension, and minor misuse of archaeological sites.}


“There’s should be a kitchen through here.” Bodhi says over his shoulder as he pushes the door open.

Into a room he doesn’t know. If there was a cantina attached to the base, everyone would be here and drunk by now. He steps in and to one side, his flesh hand drifting towards his blaster as the skeletal durasteel fingers of his prosthetic curl into a ready fist.

"What is wrong?" Galen asks. He doesn't know the base yet, but this place seems oddly calm. As if the Empire hadn't just fallen.

“This isn’t part of Delta Base.” Bodhi scans the room. “Stay put, I’ll find out.”


{Tag one or both, please say which so we know who to tag. Bodhi’s AU description is here. Warnings for slowtime given timezones and RL interference.}

Galen stands by the door, keeping still and looking around.

The human quota is too high, for one thing, for the rebellion.

Galen walks over and takes the flyer, starting to read.
galen_erso: (Calm)

"Yes, but it would mean that several fringe theories are not only true, but applicable," Galen says, still reading.
galen_erso: (Bad joke)

Galen grins at him, as Bodhi isn't nowhere near as stupid or uneducated as his words imply.

"Several realities exist, depending on choices exercised by nature, or history," Galen says. "Even the laws of nature can vary in those different universes. And it's possible to cross the borders of these rralitires, or at least cross to a place where all realities are possible, which apparently here."
galen_erso: (Calm)

"Precisely," Galen declares. "And this is the crossing point. At least according to this handy little brochure."

Pause.

"Which is a bit hard to believe all at once, but seems I have to throw all skepticism to the winds."

Galen turns a few pages, until he finds a plan, which is oddly vague in places.

"Through there," he says. "Shall we?"
galen_erso: (Flirty)

"Something in a sauce of green spice and scarif nut," Galen says.

It's still scarif nut, just as it is still Alderaan beer.

"Just not too much white chili, if that is all right. And do put me to work cutting and scrubbing things."

Galen hops up onto a tall stool. "Should I get us anything to drink?"
galen_erso: (Calm)

[personal profile] galen_erso 2017-08-12 12:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Galen hops off his chair, gets each of them a mug of caf from a nearby machine, and then sits on the stool again, watching Bodhi.
galen_erso: (Eyes)

[personal profile] galen_erso 2017-08-12 12:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Galen watches him, blood-warm eyes alive with fascination, taking in sights and scents.

This is Bodhi, and Galen loves watching him cook and slowly become more like the man Galen used to know. But he loves Bodhi in any version; he will get used to the calmer, cooler man he has become. No more talking a mile a minute, no more intuitively balancing everything up in the air.
galen_erso: (Pondering)

"Tell me," Galen finally says. "What happened. What you can tell me -- keeping personal and professional confidences, of course."
galen_erso: (Chiaroscuro)

"When we last kissed," Galen says.

He misses kissing Bodhi. Did so the entire time.
galen_erso: (Calm)

"And then?" Galen asks, sipping his caf.
