    Summary

    You come across Anakin sitting in the showers, clothed, wet and shivering. You decide to sit down next to him and talk while the blue lights flicker above you, the only light in the dark room. You also decide to become his friend.

    Only that Anakin can’t be fixed just by offering your friendship. He can’t be saved through nothing but kindness. And you’d learn that all on your own in due time.

    Summary

    If Anakin could be anyone, truly got to choose freely - then, he would have been anyone but Anakin Skywalker.

    However, if he hadn’t been born Anakin Skywalker, he would never have met you and you would never have met him. So, it’s fine. It has to be.

    Because when you look at him, he knows you don’t see the milk carton boy; taken from his mother and held captive for six years. You don’t see a broken window frame or a waste of potential.

    You just see him.

    But he can’t get you to stay. You always go, and Anakin doesn’t know how long he’ll be able to take it. What he’s going to do.

    Summary

    Ten years later, and Withnail is a teacher at RADA. Ten years since Marwood left him in the pouring rain. A decade seemed enough to sort everything out, to reach something that resembled inner peace. But then Marwood walks into his life again, unaware of everything, and Withnail is once again in the pouring rain. Metaphorically.
