“When she was a small child, Leia had believed that the soft glow within her mother’s chest was a bouquet of candlewicks in her heart. By now she understood the working of her mother’s pulmonodes and had met many other people with mechanized organ replacements—but the affection she felt for candlewick flowers had never faded. To her, they would always suggest magic, and love.” – Leia: Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray
Bail and Breha Organa’s last moments on Alderaan, in From a Certain Point of View (2017)
“I hope to have told you all this myself,” Bail Organa’s voice said. “I hope we have enjoyed many more happy years as a family, that we have seen the Empire fall, and that we have gone forth together to find General Kenobi and your brother. If so, this recording can serve only one purpose. You must be listening after my death, so let this be my chance to say once again how much I love you. No other daughter could ever have brought me more joy.” Tears welled in Leia’s eyes, but she fought them back. If she began to sob, she wouldn’t be able to hear her father’s voice any longer. He concluded, “Please know that my love for you, and your mother’s love, endures long past our deaths. We are forever with you, Leia. In your brightest triumphs and your darkest troubles, always know that we are by your side.”
little Leia and her momma Breha!
I LOVE DYING
If the Empire has this kind of power, what chance do we have?
