Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (G)

Some Padmé on her own was what I needed, maybe?

_______________________


She sits patiently, her hair pulled back and over. Facepaint patiently applied. She can barely recognise herself in the mirror and then the gown. Piece by piece, the Queen is assembled. She feels as though she will suffocate under centuries of history and tradition.

She stands slowly, her eyes looking at her from a mirror which shows the Queen and not herself; only her eyes remain.

Not too deep a breath and she turns for the door which will lead down a corridor and to a balcony from which she’ll address her people for the first time.

The first time as their Queen.

As she turns, she feels her hand quickly squeezed; she looks over her shoulder to see Sabé sedately taking her place. A quick curve of painted lips and she walks through the door.

These two lines really stood out to me. Well done. :)

After the recent series of stories, Padmé and I needed it! Plus, it's a moment you'd rarely see - I thought she had to have some quiet moments.

These two lines really stood out to me. Well done. :)
Thank you! The Queen always seemed a role and these two lines, for me, capture that.

I love how this feels both nervous and peaceful at the same time. Lovely.

Thank you; I was trying to capture both and thought I'd gotten trhe nervousness but nothing else!
