Fic: ‘Just after dawn.’  
Title: Just after dawn.
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Before AotC: Coruscant.
Summary: His sleep, and dreams, won’t be disturbed.

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

If this seems familiar, it’s because it’s the companion to Cool breezes and closing windows. This comes after that story.

This, again, is pure indulgence for such a domestic scene. I like these quieter scenes for what they reveal.

That and I’m curious what he’s dreaming! What fun to speculate!

Dawn sneaks through the closed window and she sits, propped by the pillows behind her. A finger lightly traces the curve of his jaw and she wonders what dreams are caught behind eyelids that flutter in the furtive early morning light.

She wraps a thick robe around her shoulders before she closes the blinds. She knows he will soon waken but a little extra time cannot hurt. Shrugging the robe away, she eases herself into the bed beside him; his arms slip around her, pulling her close. A soft, contented moan greets her as she snuggles.

Closing her eyes, she turns briefly to softly kiss his bearded cheek before settling more fully in his arms.

Nice. I like these quieter scenes; shows they're not always in the heat of battle!

As do I. I also like wondering what he's dreaming about.

I really enjoy reading your pieces. The characters always draw such strength from one another. And that's really how I see this relationship.

That's one of the best compliments I've ever received for my portrayal of their relationship. Thank you!

When writing Memory and experience, I wondered if Qui-Gon saw that strength or the potential for it.

I couldn't resist writing a 'flip side' to the coin shown in Cool breezes and closing windows.
