Fic: ‘Hopes and prayer of a Queen.’  
Title: Hopes and prayer of a Queen.
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (G)
Time Period: tPM.
Summary: She hopes, and prays, that everything works out.

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

This came, fully fleshed, to the fore of my mind. Even if I’d not written it now, I doubt it would have gone away.

Her back against a wall, the cold metal of the blaster rests against her face as, chest heaving, she struggles to catch her breath and remember where she last saw the droids in the hallway.

One. Two.

She spins around the corner and fires, knowing Captain Panaka is nearby with her Handmaidens. They come around the corner directly opposite and she runs down the windowed corridor, grip tight on the blaster she feels forced to use.

As Captain Panaka shoots the droids ahead, she hopes that the Gungans are successful in their distraction, that the pilots manage to blow up the control ship, that ...

There are too many variables to think upon. Hope is needed and it is hope that holds her aim steady. Hope that none of this is for nothing, that her people will be free of the illegal detention of the Trade Federation. That the Great Peace has been broken for good reason.

The door slides open. Nute Gunray jumps slightly, the pallid grey of his skin showing his nervousness.

Please, she silently prays as she speaks aloud, let this not have been for nothing.

Hi. Very nice Padme POV. I like the last line. The inner thoughts in your pieces are often very believable.

Hello! I hope you've been well.

The inner thoughts in your pieces are often very believable.
Wow. Thank you! I'm never quite certain if they are or not; I keep doubting those lines when they're in a story.
