Pearl Skywalker Jedi Knight by MarkHoofman Pearl Skywalker Jedi Knight by MarkHoofman
"Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps she will..."

"NEVER!!!"

I had the day off from school, so I used it to make this. ;) (Wink) 

I drew Pearl in Luke's jedi outfit from Return of the Jedi, since I rewatched some of it today. Also considering I wanted to take a break from The Force Awakens related stuff and go back to the originals! Wink/Razz 


This scene feels a lot more powerful rewatching it later as a mature teenager. As a kid, I always saw Luke and Vader's fight in Return of The Jedi as just a rematch and Luke confronting the Emperor as well as Vader turning good again. Now, I see it as a tear jerking fight between Luke trying to convince his father to come back to the side of good while also keeping himself from turning to the dark side. But when Vader threatens Luke that he'll turn Leia over to the dark side, and Luke loses it, even after trying to calmly persuade Vader to join the light side again........absolutely heartbreaking as Luke attacks the father with that all powerful music by John Williams. Waaaah! 

So yes, this is why Pearl has tears in her eyes on the close up, it's after Vader threatens Luke to turn Leia over to the Dark Side. Also, Leia is Rose in the AU, so it makes it even more powerful when you know Pearl's relationship with Rose and Vader relationship with Luke. Just makes this already powerful duel into something even more. Wow! 

Hope you all enjoy! I am a dummy!

I only follow the main Disney canon (And only some EU/Legends like Shadows Of The Empire). Pearl is Luke Skywalker in my SU/Star Wars canon and that's final. I'm sorry, but it's just my decision.

Besides, Steven is Finn (FN-2187) in my EU: markhoofman.deviantart.com/art…

Plus, when Luke *Pearl* snaps against Vader it's because just like the movie Vader threatens to convert her sister Leia (who just so happens to be Rose Quartz, see what I mean in terms of emotional impact when Pearl snaps.) the dark side of the force.

Although keep those ideas, you may want to use them for your own AU. For me though, your idea isn't for me. It seems rather Prequel-trilogy based which I'm not a huge fan of the prequels.Sweating a little...

I don't know, just the whole concept of the Holocron, and the ancient Sith Lord Sorzus Syn. 

Sith Lord Sorzus Syn is from the Old Repuplic, a PREQUEL based EU. The whole Pearl using the Holocron to learn that dark art, and use it to destroy Steven's body with the help of Sidious sounds complicated like most of the prequel concepts and it's EU nonsense.
