ALLIANCE [image=http://www.sgtfretsurfer.com/Grilled-Sarlacc/love1.jpg] Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with Lucasfilm Limited. I have incorporated bits of dialogue from each of the Star Wars films in writing this story for the sole purpose of moving my story forward and keeping in character. I am not profiting from this story in any way. Rating: PG Summary: The timeline for this story covers the end of the Clone Wars and through Return of the Jedi. What could have been if Anakin hadn?t turned into Vader and PadmÃ© lived. Birth of the twins. Cast: Anakin Skywalker, PadmÃ© Amidala Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke & Leia Skywalker and various other characters from the Star Wars universe, in addition to outside characters of my creation. ** Italics denote a person?s silent thoughts, an emphasis or mind speaking. ** Intro: I can recall going to see Star Wars when I was but a wee lass and arriving at the theater awe struck. Here were people of all ages wrapped more than once around a theater waiting to see a movie. Thus my fascination took on a new meaning and hasn?t wavered over the years? I?ve never written a story such as this for these boards but I?ve had fun perusing through them. I can only hope all of you will enjoy my rendition as much as I enjoyed writing it. There are a few people I would like to acknowledge that have been so helpful in getting this to fruition: PadmeLeiaJaina, Jedi-ES, Anakin_PadmeFan and, of course, my daughter ? who wouldn?t let me rest and kept pushing me onward to complete this. I guess the Star Wars fanaticism runs in the family?. Comments are welcome and encouraged.

PadmÃ© Naberrie Amidala Skywalker Sunlight etched through the thick transparisteel of the Senatorial suite casting a hazy glow throughout the room. The dark paneled walls encircling the chamber cast a foreboding presence its occupant never considered to acknowledge. Pictures depicting scenes of natural beauty hung throughout, pleasing to the eyes that beheld them. Next to the enormous bed stood a nightstand, a single holo-image graced its smooth surface and brought comfort to the room?s occupant on numerous occasions. Unfortunately, the image was only visible when a woman of incredible beauty and intelligence happened to occupy the room ? her room ? and her memories? This is her story?
