Title: Star Wars: Demon Emperor
Description: L.L. has wandered the galaxy for tens of thousands of years, refusing to pass on his curse of immortality. Now he believes he has finally found the perfect contractee: a slave boy called Anakin Skywalker.
I could feel my body regenerating itself as it was worn down by the Tatooine heat, but I just kept walking. It would be pointless to stop, as I wouldn't die. Plus, I could barely see the edges of a city up ahead.
Through all my years, I had never lost that determination to succeed, unlike my contractor. I remembered her well, though I hadn't seen her in 64,872 years. Don't ask me how, but my brain had always been able to remember dates well. Especially one as important as that...
She had finally died, after many unsuccessful contracts. I had actually traveled with her for a time. She was genuinely happy during that time. But after we parted she reverted back to her old self, if a bit more depressed than before.
I could still talk to her, and she would sometimes comment on my actions, but it was rare. Just recently the latest bearer of C.C.'s code had sealed himself in carbonite. I felt bad for him, really. He just couldn't handle seeing his loved ones die...
I was broken out of my thoughts by a Dug yelling at a small boy. When had I gotten to the city?
I rushed forward as the Dug hit the boy in the face. He couldn't be more than 8 standard years!
…..I suppose there was still a bit of Zero in me, after all.
I heard the Dug yell at him in Huttese, so I responded in it.
"Why did you hit the boy? I didn't see what happened." I said calmly. A bit too calmly, if the Dug's expression was anything to go by.
"What do you mean, why did I hit him?! He's a slave who needs to learn his place! You'd do well to mind your own business, outsider!" I grit my teeth. The strong preying on the weak... I was going to make this Dug pay. Literally.
"If you don't want me to kill you, then I suggest you free him, in order to make up for what you did." I was looking directly into his eyes, and that was all it took.
"Yes... I'll go buy his freedom..." The Dug slowly wandered off towards a nearby junk shop.
Ignoring the staring crowd, I turned around and headed to the nearest bar.
I need a drink...
I was in the process of bringing my alcoholic beverage to my lips yet again when I felt someone tap me on the shoulder. I swiveled my head to the right, expecting to see someone trying to sell me deathsticks or a thermal detonator, but was surprised to see the boy from earlier.
"Thanks for getting Sebulba to free me, mister." He said.
I grunted before replying, "Think nothing of it. And don't tell anyone. Enough people know as it is." Realistically, the entire town would know in about an hour, but still.
Out of the corner of my eye, I could see the boy hopping onto the stool next to me with some effort.
We sat in silence for a while while the boy gathered his courage.
He finally spoke, "I'm grateful for what you did and all... But I just thought I'd let you know that it was pointless. Now that somebody doesn't own me, anybody can enslave me again... And I don't have a way to protect myself..."
I turned and stared at him. "Are you suggesting that I stay here and protect you?" I suppose I should have realized that he would be enslaved again, but now that I thought about it, I realized that his only hope was me.
"Well... could I come with you? I love my mom, but if I stay with her, Watto, that's my old master, can just enslave me again, and I really don't want that to happen!" He looked at me with puppy-dog eyes.
Even after being alive for thousands of years, I have never been able to resist a small child with large eyes...
A/N: And that's the first chapter of my new Code Geass and Star Wars crossover!
In case anyone is confused, the premise is that Lelouch gained his father's Code while keeping his Geass, and has refused to pass it on to anyone, not wanting someone to receive it that couldn't handle the stress. Tens of thousands of years later, after humanity has spread throughout the galaxy, he is still wandering.
And so, Lelouch finds himself in what we call the "Star Wars" universe.
