"I wouldn't expect you to," he said softly.

It was why he'd kept his past to himself.

"Did you not expect this to happen?" Anakin asked his grandfather. "When she found out? Or did you know it was likely to turn out this way?"

Anakin hastily reviewed the last few minutes' conversaation in his head and sucked in a sharp breath as he pieced clues together.

"Bespin?" he asked Leia, but for some reason he found himself looking at his grandfather as he spoke.

It might explain a lot about why she was so unwilling to back down; as much as he'd heard Uncle Luke's stories about Darth Vader, he'd always heard about what happened on the second Death Star just as often. His uncle was a strong believer in redemption, after all.

Just like class earlier, it was always the Mandalorians, wasn't it?

Anakin ran a hand through his hair and, of course, only served to muss it up worse.

"And that's another story I've heard a million times," he pointed out gently, even if his father was still enough of a sore spot that his lopsided little Solo grin was a bit forced. "From him and you."

He left the implication -- that Han would get through it okay -- unspoken, but he hoped it was clear. It wasn't going to take away the sting of betrayal, but. Well. Maybe it would help somehow.

Well, if she was waiting to hear about the golden bikini, that news wouldn't be coming from her father.

He was hoping this version of Leia would end up in a nice pantsuit.

"The future is always in motion," he said and could feel Obi-Wan laughing at him.

No one in this room who knew was bringing up the golden bikini; some people thought it was amusing to TMI their kids in yet another example of why the Solos are terrible parents and really, it was just traumatizing.

Anakin kept his gaze, slightly agitated no matter how steady he tried to make it, on his grandfather. "That's what Uncle Luke always says, too."

He'd definitely heard it a lot from his uncle every time those visions of himself as Darth Vader had troubled him.

Well if someone whose name rhymed with "Playa" hadn't gone all Gryffindor Skywalker headstrong and tried to infiltrate said Hutt's palace, no one would be wearing anything gold and restricting!

"Exactly," Anakin said. "And you would have had to go to before you were born to fix the events that just caught up with you. Darth Vader is a Sith and has been for many, many years."

He blew out a breath. "But I'm not him any longer."

As if there was anyone in this room right now who wouldn't have gone all headstrong and tried to infiltrate a Hutt's palace under similar circumstances.

"You found a way back," Anakin said, his voice very quiet. He knew the specifics of how, of course, but there was no point in spelling them out. "All that time you were Darth Vader, you were still you in there somewhere, deep down."

If he sounded uncertain -- he didn't know whether to find that reassuring or terrifying.

"He's right, Mom," Anakin spoke up, still more than a little bit incredulous that he seemed to be taking his grandfather's side now, and not hers. "I've heard all the stories about what happened when Dad tried that. You were there. You'd know."

He drew himself up, tugged at the hem of his tunic in a nervous gesture. "Letting you draw on him without retaliating, if that's what I missed, is much more Jedi than Sith." At least, it was according to the way he understood it.

Anakin knew what his own answer was, but he kept his mouth shut and just looked silently at Leia; this was something she needed to work through, and his own hangups could wait.

He didn't realize he'd been holding his breath until after he caught himself exhaling, and then Anakin was a little annoyed with that lack of self-awareness.

And now he realized exactly what kind of uncomfortable situation he'd blundered into.

"I . . . should go," he spoke up, but looked back at his grandfather. "I'll see you next week?"

Considering he'd never stopped by office hours before . . .

"We will." Anakin had pulled up short the second to stay within contact range he sensed her reaching out to him, comforted by her familiar presence even if she looked so much younger than he knew her. He raised his gaze to his grandfather and nodded.

"All right," he said, turning to head for the door.
