The Holocron he'd picked up on Dathomir had been full of potentially useful information about Jedi training, which was why (between trips to Fandom) Luke had been away from Coruscant for almost a year tracking down leads.

This one, he decided as he looked around the grasslands of the planet Stewjon was interesting for more personal reasons, and even if no one here was exactly open for talking about Obi-Wan Kenobi, it was fascinating to see where he'd been born.

Yes, Luke was being a tourist. Shhh.

[OOC: The planet was named for Jon Stewart. I SWEAR TO GOD. Open for calls and texts!]

And there, disrupting the idyllic peace and quiet of the grasslands, was Luke's phone! Which was a really good metaphor for Rikku herself, in a lot of ways.

But it wasn't a metaphor. It was a phone call.

"This is Luke," he replied, flipping his commlink on.

"Oh, man!" Rikku giggled. "I was hoping to talk to General Manly Skywalker? He's soooo dreamy!"

Luke burst out laughing. "Rikku! How are you? Where are you?"

"Fandom!" she laughed. "Luke! I miss you! We need to hang out again! Guess where I am?"

Besides 'Fandom,' since she had already told him that and all.

"Ooooh, or guess what I did, 'cause that's a better one. They're kinda connected? Oh, no, I'm saying too much and I'm gonna give it all away!"

"Are you in jail?" Luke asked.

What? It was a totally logical conclusion to draw.

"Nope!" Rikku bounced. "Better!"

... yeah. Chew on that one, Luke.

"I'm at the repair shop! You remember it? It was Stark Industries when that Stark guy had it, but before that it was Sparky Something?"

"Oh, right," Luke said as he thought back a bit. "With the robot lady? She made them or something?"

"Yeah, her," Rikku said. "And then Stark, aaaaaaand now me! I bought the store. Is that weird? It has a workshop on it! I've never had my own workshop before!"

Almost as an afterthought, she added, "Do you need any armor?"

"No, I think I'm good," Luke said, chuckling. "I've worn Stormtrooper armor. It didn't really suit me."

"You're far too dashing to need anything like that," she giggled. "So ... yeah. Repair shop. You'll be in for Homecoming, right?"

And then, the bit of news that should have come earlier had she been thinking about it.

"Oh my gosh, your son works here! Not your son because you'd better not have gotten any kids and not told me about them, but the one that's here! Ben! I hugged him and I think he thinks I'm crazy but that's okay."

Many people did.

"I wouldn't dream of missing Homecoming," Luke assured her, "and I haven't had time to date, let alone have a son. You? Any random children I need to be warned about?"

"Do you know who his mom is?" she asked. "Oh, no, is that a really weird question? I'd be so nosy but I'd be curious, too, and then I might wreck everything by asking too many questions."

She leaned against the counter with a grin. "No kids, thank goodness," she said. "Reno ended up with a duck somehow? It was living in his bathroom and watching people pee."

Well, it did.

"Everyone needs a hobby?" Luke finally offered. "And I have some ideas about who Ben's mother might be, but nothing solid. If I'm right, I haven't met her yet anyway."

"So ... not Dawn, then," Rikku asked, as innocently as possible.

Mostly to see if she could freak out Luke, yes.

Luke sputtered. "No, I don't think so," he said finally. "She doesn't have red hair, either."

Date: 2010-10-01 01:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-merriest.livejournal.com
"No?" Rikku asked. "Why, who has red hair?"

Besides Reno, but she really didn't think Reno was going to be Luke's babymomma. Call it a hunch.

"Ben," Luke replied, laughing. "I don't think it came from my side of the family."

"My people are blonde," she laughed, "so I guess I'm safely off the hook, too."

No matter what a particularly insane version of Rikku might have said, while faking a pregnancy and out of her mind.

"Unless Ben is really your and Reno's son and I'm raising him in secret in a future where I don't know how I would have met you," Luke mused.

Mmm, logic. Special Skywalker logic.

Being Rikku, she actually considered that.

"Are his eyes the same color?" she asked.

Date: 2010-10-01 02:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] tatooine-doofus.livejournal.com
"I think they're blue," Luke offered, "so...yes."

"Not mine," she said with a sigh of relief. "Any kid of mine is gonna have one green eye, and the other one won't match."

Which was a nice little cheat sheet for when AU kids showed up, yes.

"It's an Al Bhed thing."

"Handy for picking them out in a crowd," Luke said with a laugh. "What brought you back to Fandom?"
