Fic: ‘Tis the Season: A gift begun.  
Title: ‘Tis the Season: A gift begun.
Fandom: Star Wars.
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Sometime between AotC & RotS.
Summary: During a quiet moment, it’s begun.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q. or check this post for the definition).

This is silly holiday fun, which is why I like the ‘Tis the Season series of holiday stories; the characters may, or may not, be in character as it’s been a while since I’ve written for them!

I finally got curious as to what was in the box. So, this is a kinda prequel to the stories begun with Easier to think. Part I of II; after all, we should find out what it is!

In a corner, quietly observing the busyness of the hangar, his fingertips skittered over the piece of wood in his hands. It was smooth to touch and, if he stilled his mind, he could hear it softly calling, whispering where to slice against, and with, the grain for the best results. Reaching down, he picked up the knife he intended to use and leaned against the metal wall behind him.

The knife in his hands was old-fashioned; it wasn’t powered by lasers, crystals or vibrations – it was simply a metal blade set into a wooden handle. He’d have to be careful, he knew, as he began; his familiarity with the blade was non-existent. Yet, this was something he wanted to do himself.

His lips curved into a faint smile as he worked, wood shavings and chips gathering by his boots. It was a beginning and, he hoped, he’d have it finished by the next time they saw one another. Force willing.

Under his breath, during the times he carved, words of hope were murmured.

Gah! We still don't know what it is...

And oddly, your talk of crystals or vibrations makes me think of Anne McCaffrey. Been a while since I read her Ballybran series.

I would make an incredibly bad Jedi. I have no patience.

Then I'm certain your patience will be rewarded.

Eventually.

This was easily something I could see him doing, in a corner of my mind.
