    Greetings, friends!

    Here's yet another fan fic! This is the Destiny's Choice prequel *hears shouts "Don't you mean SEQUEL?"* Um, no. This is a fun little snapshot story about the years in between the flashback and the actual story of DC; it'll help me get back into the DC universe.

    Timeline: Inter-trilogy AU
    Focus: Anakin and Luke Skywalker (with Obi-Wan and Mara)
    Summary: Destiny's Choice prequel. What if Anakin never married Padme and stayed with the Jedi? What if Luke was still born, and Anakin trained him as a Jedi?

    You don't really need to read DC to enjoy this; everything will be explained along the way.

    ~~This is a Tagged story.~~

    *****

    Silence ? Thank the Force. Silence. Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker slowly allowed his head to touch the back of the armchair he was currently sitting on. His heavy eyelids began to close, tired from baring the weight of his eyelashes for the entirety of last night. As his body completely relaxed and slumped neatly into the chair, he mused only momentarily about how nice a bed would be right now.

    His breathing became shallow, causing the room to become quieter still. The sweet bliss of unconscious greeted him, and he was about to fall into a mindless, dreamless sleep.

    That was until the baby started crying.

    Anakin?s eyes jerked open, nearly causing the young man to groan in frustration. The waling infant continued as Anakin rose from his chosen resting place. He rubbed his sleep-deprived eyes once more, wondering just how red they had become.

    ?Luke,? he half-mumbled, picking the baby up out of a small crib in the corner, ?what?s wrong? I?ve fed you; I?ve changed you. What could you possibly need now?? Despite the directness of these words, Anakin?s voice was neither sarcastic nor angry, just tired.

    He rocked Luke gently enough, causing his young son to stop crying and to coo peacefully. Anakin sighed contently, glad Luke was finally calm again. He touched his son?s mind softly with the Force, trying to find a motive behind the infant?s outburst.

    ?Ahh,? Anakin whispered. ?That makes sense, then.? Luke was just lonely and wanted to be held and rocked. The knight returned to his earlier chair, baby now in hand.

    He gently bounced Luke on his chest and allowed himself to resume his former sleeping position. He could only imagine how difficult it must be raising a child without the keen insight the Force provided.

    This quick thought instantly provoked a string of mental ramblings, which took him down a road he wasn?t sure he wanted to go.

    Padmé raising Leia alone. No, not alone. With him. Anakin tried, ever so slowly, to protect himself, and Luke in process, from these formed anxieties, fears, and worries.

    The recent Clone Wars had taken a toll on them all. Padmé, acting in the service of her people, had agreed to marry the monarch Bail Organa of Alderaan. But not before Padmé and Anakin had allowed themselves to share their mutual affection for one another - a night which resulted in the existence of the twins, Luke and Leia.

    Anakin hugged his son closer to him, rocking the now sleeping Luke gently.

    The day the twins where born, Anakin had accidentally bonded with Luke, forming the first signs of a Master/Padawan bond. It had been under the advice of both Bail and the Jedi Council that he and Padmé had decided to split the twins up. Bail needed an heir to appease the politicos and the press, while Luke would not live a normal life without Jedi training. It was the only way.

    Anakin still felt guilty about the whole situation, but buried this feeling deep down, ignoring it for the most part.

    It had been four months since that fateful day, and the Jedi, Anakin included, had only began to rebuild their order. Construction had started a few months earlier, both by the Jedi themselves and the building droids the new Supreme Chancellor, Ainlee Teem, had provi

    Another great start Pallas. Will there eventually be a sequel to DC?

    Hope the next post is soon, thanks for letting me know that you had another story started. Can't wait to see how the story unfolds. :)

    I'm not sure I'd want to be able to read the minds of my children to know what they'd want. It will be interesting to see how Anakin deals with raising a child.

    thanks for letting me know about this.

    This was so cute Anakin with a baby Luke :)

    I do hope you don't let the Jedi take Luke away just to gave him back when he gets older.

    Waiting for more...

    Seeing Anakin as a Dad... it's so sweet. (I get the feeling he would have been a very devoted one if he hadn't turned.) Seeing him as a single dad is something I've vaguely wondered about, and this is a great start on that premise. :)

    Awww...I'm with A21 on this one--I think Anakin would have made a great father if he hadn't turned.

    Great start, Pallas. Can't wait to see more. :)

    ::jumps up and down, clapping happily::

    YAY!!

    I don't care if it IS a prequel, it's more DC!

    That was so sweet, Pallas. I loved the way Anakin cared for Luke and even the Obi/Ani interaction was wonderful! Write more soon!

    Emmi

    P.S- I read DC in it's entirety, though I can't remember if I posted or not. It was excellent and I encourage everyone on this thread who has not read it to go read it NOW!

    ::waves hand::

    You WILL go and read Destiny's Choice

    ::smiles smugly as whole audience trapses obediently over to the DC thread::

    Saché, the ever-impatient one, wonders when Mara will show up.....


    Okay, okay. I will learn patience. If I don't, I might not get any cookies.

    My last day of college ever (until grad school) and I find this. I am so excited, what a way to end my day :). And until I go to Japan in August I have time to keep up with this fic. I am very happy!

    I am glad you are writting this. I love Luke/Anakin and I love seeing them together. With Anakin as a jedi, being friends with Obi, and no Leia ;) Not that I don't like Leia, I just like Luke more :D

    I hope this is long and that I get to see many cute Luke/Anakin moments.

    good start

    would have replied sooner, but I am still sort of recovering from my brief stay at a cabin for two days. And this cabin was less than an hour away!

    I'll read this, indefinitely......
