    Summary: Luke takes Vader's hand in Cloud City, and falls. ESB AU, Dark!Luke
    LM Link: Link

    This fic, rather then focusing on the Luke's fall, focuses on the emotional impact of his turning to the dark side. It does this quite well. Now while a fic with nonexistent scene breaks is typically bad news for the reader of any story, this one is an exception to the rule.

    The moment when Luke kills his father is exceptionally poignant.
    5/5

    Probably one of the best Dark!Luke fics in the fandom.

    An excellent little oneshot, it details his fall well, despite the sparse information. I enjoyed it a great deal. 4.5/5

    As far a Star Wars oneshots go, this is right up there at the top imo. Very good characterization, and superb pacing. The plot flows very well for how short it is, and wraps up very nicely. Great short. 4.5/5, rounded up.

    Very well written and thoughtful. The lack of breaks is my only real complaint; it made pacing difficult.
