Drabble Time! Not even 140 words for a change. No spoilers.
I entered the hangar, and it was raining.
Perhaps I should back up. The Esseles transport shuttle headed for its slip in the broad shuttle hangar. The local Coruscant traffic control dropped the bayís magnetic field to allow the shuttle to pass without damaging its electronics. In that moment, Coruscantís late-summer humid atmosphere clashed with the hangarís climate-controlled interior.
Clouds formed among the high catwalks and tall loading cranes. The shuttle touched down, the magnetic seal snapped back on, the circulators went on full with a blast of frost. The clouds condensed in the sudden chill. And it began to rain.
A brief rain, to be sure. The cloud precipitated out in less than a minute. Yet I am left with a bizarre returning impression of this world.
It is a place where it can rain indoors.
