    You don't have to let Padme die, you know. Just let her injury be enough to rid her of the notion of ruling the galaxy.

    RedGold, the VERY time I want to place a bet ... :p

    And GreatOne, thought I'd let you know that Empire, the UK movie magazine (with an apt title) just ran a web poll that put Wedge top of the minor characters! (Beat THAT, Fett!)

    Good post, all the pieces in the game are now rushing towards the conclusion.

    EDIT: sending possible ROTS spoiler question via PM.

    GreatOne:

    OK, so it wasn't a giant moth, but it looks like MM got her just rewards--losing the right to bear arms in more ways than one.

    Poor Padme...don't kill her off. She deserves a chance at happiness.

    I'm glad Han hasn't lost his sense of battle timing...nice save there, flyboy!

    Looking forward to more!

    Alethia - So Wedge has been captured and tortured, Padmé has been shot, Bel Ibis is not only in love with Padmé but has finally arrived as well and Leia's pregnant with twins. And now Anakin, Luke and Mara are going to have their final showdown with Palpatine- Yes to all those things, except it was WES that was captured and tortured! :D - Mon and Madine are bantha fodder and free to be shot at- and hopefully actually shot.- You mean to say you want Leia to SHOOT the woman after she chopped her arms off? :eek: [face_laugh]

    AnakinPadme4ever - can't wait to see what's gonna happen to MON when Anakin comes back and finds out about this..- I think at this point he'll let the High Council deal with Mothma, unless he goes all darksidey! [face_devil]

    Katarina42 - *insert obligatory bad joke about "A Farewell to Arms" here* [face_laugh] - That's a funny one! - If you don't kill her off, I'll give you a cookie! - A COOKIE??? Can it be a oatmeal-raisin-chocolate-chip cookie? Those are the very best kind! :D

    Jerjerrod-Lennox - not good at all. - Muahahahahahha. [face_devil]

    RedGold - SSSOOOO not touching that one.... - hehe. What? No survival odds for everyone? :cool:

    Jeditheskyisblue - Oh No Padme's hurt bad. - Yes, she is. And so is Mon Mothma, and Wes and ... :eek:

    Jedi_BMK - Leia keeps Padme going for the time being and the babies can help somehow since they are Solo babies and can do things like that- :eek: - But they're only about four months along! They're not even born! :p Just need to keep thinking positive.- Yes! Think positive! I will tell you ONE of the good guys is going to die! (Now where is RedGold when you want some odds on WHO?) ;)

    Jedi-2B - You don't have to let Padme die, you know. Just let her injury be enough to rid her of the notion of ruling the galaxy- hehe. Do you really think she'll give up her dream just because of a little brush with death? [face_devil]

    Rosh_Penin - And GreatOne, thought I'd let you know that Empire, the UK movie magazine (with an apt title) just ran a web poll that put Wedge top of the minor characters! (Beat THAT, Fett!) - Hmmmm. And to think.... he IS one of the good guys! :eek: EDIT: sending possible ROTS spoiler question via PM. - OK! But I haven't gotten the PM yet!


    starwarsfan68 - The dual cliffy from today is killing me!!!!- Awww! Things will be resolved in two, or at the very, very most, three post! I promise! :) :)

    QueenOfAces - it looks like MM got her just rewards--losing the right to bear arms in more ways than one. - hehe. That's just as funny as the Farewell to Arms! [face_laugh] I just couldn't think of a way to get a giant moth onboard the Home One! :p

    One cliffie isn't enough, you go for two. *shakes head* Evil authoress. ;)

    Good job with Leia stopping her mother's execution. It would have been so easy for her to just Mothma, but she just disarmed her(sorry about the bad pun). You get the drift.

    Laura_Anu - I want to know what happens next! - OK! Here it is....

    Chapter Fifty-Two


    By the time the Rebels under Madine's command breached the palace, their numbers had been reduced by half. Still, the General was undeterred by the number of casualties, ordering the remaining troops to fan out in groups of five, and to kill any Imperial they could find.

    "You four," Madine snapped at Tycho and three other men. "Come with me. We're heading to the throne room."

    "Just the five of us?" Tycho asked, incredulous.

    "Are you questioning my orders?" Madine snapped. "Don't make me charge you with insubordination and mutiny, trooper!"

    "No, sir," Tycho said quickly. He followed the General up toward the throne room, deciding the man was just as crazy as Mothma.

    Unfortunately, the door to the throne room was blocked by massive amounts of durasteel debris, and the General's face grew red with frustration. "Use your blasters, and break this durasteel up into pieces. I want to get inside this room. Do it fast!"

    The Rebels exchanged mystifed looks, then started shooting at the pieces of durasteel. When it was blasted into smaller chunks, they used their brute strength to push the twisted chunks aside. Eventually, they cleared a small area where one person at a time could wiggle their way through.

    "I'll go first," Madine declared, noting there was no resistance coming from inside the throne room. "Wait here, until I call for backup." He climbed up then crawled on his stomach, disappearing from view.

    The inside of the grand room was in shambles. Dust was still floating in the air, and dead stormtroopers littered the floor. Some of them had obviously died by blaster fire, but most had perished under the ceiling's collapse. Coughing, his eyes noticed a movement, a person lying in the center of the floor that was obviously not an Imperial. Hoping it was one of the Jedi, Madine hurried over and looked down at the battered man, moaning man and saw it was Wes Janson, the pilot Mothma had ordered to deliver her message to the Emperor. "Janson." Madine shook his head sadly at the pilot's condition. "Too bad Palpatine didn't finish you off, since I can't allow you to live and tell anyone what you know." He raised his blaster and pointed it at Janson's head.

    *******************

    Wedge had been trying to shake two very persistent TIE fighters off his tail for several minutes. "Hobbie, can you help me out here?"

    Derek Klivian, known by his nickname of "Hobbie", answered his Commander's plea with a fast response, "I'll try, but I'm kinda far away..." His voice trailed off, then came back. "I've just taken a pretty bad hit, Red Leader. I'm having a hard time controlling my ship right now..."

    Commander Antilles shook his head, looking at his readouts. "Take care of yourself, Hobbie. I'll handle these TIE's on my own." No sooner had the words left his mouth than his astromech droid took a nasty hit from one of the pursuing Imperials. "I just lost my R2 unit," he informed his pilots. "I'm going to head lower, and try to lose them between the buildings." He glanced back, just as the TIE fighter furthest away blew into space dust.

    "I have to do everything myself around here, don't I?" Han's voice said sarcastically into his headset.

    Wedge turned into a tight corkscrew, firing non-stop at the remaining TIE until it, too, blew up. "'Do nothing without sarcasm'. Isn't that your motto?" Wedge asked with a sigh. "But I appreciate your help, anyway."

    Han gave a quick laugh, and was about to respond when his attention was drawn to a massive explosion far above them. "That explosion came from the Peregrine," Han said, his voice thick with regret, watching as Bel Iblis's ship spun slowly and then dove, in what seemed like slow motion, directly into an Imperial Super Star Destroyer. A second later, that Star Destroyer also lit up the sky, then both ships were nothing more than space debris.

    There was no time to mourn the loss, and quickly they turned their attention back to the battle.

    It took all three of them to beat Palpatine didn't it? Of course Palpatine did send how many stormtroopers after them and they still got to him lol.

    Now heres to hoping that Padme doesn't die.

    Palpy's dead! =D= :D [face_dancing]

    Too bad Bel Iblis had to go down (or at least I assume he went down with his ship), but he was probably the best choice to make a major sacrifice like that.

    Good thinking by Tycho in dealing with the situation. Also, good for Wes in finally figuring out he made a mistake even if the damage has been done.

    Now it's time to hope that the Emperor's death can sway the battle and that they can get up to Padme in time to make her all better so everyone lives happily ever after.

    Nice battle sequence. Good deaths for the baddies!!!

    I'm looking forward to the reunion scene, but I'm sad that this is coming to an end. I've really enjoyed the ride!

    Nice work, GreatOne

    Palpatine's dead! That's a good thing... And only one chapter left? Aww... are you planning on doing a sequel?

    Yes to all those things, except it was WES that was captured and tortured

    Opps! Yeah, meant Wes there. Hey, both names start with a W, mistakes are easily made... *grins*


    You mean to say you want Leia to SHOOT the woman after she chopped her arms off?

    I don't care who does the shooting, but...yeah. That would be nice. Or any kind of death for her would be nice. I'm not picky. *grins*


    Anyway, I like the way the three Jedi all helped, but it was Anakin who struck the killing blow, so to speak. And Bel Ibis is dead as well? Not really sure what to think of that... And I almost feel a bit sorry for Wes (see, got the name right this time)...

    Great job and I'm sorry to hear that this is ending soon.

    You didn't tell us what happened to Padme, so no cookie for you! (Well, *yet* anyway.)

    Madine and Palpy have both bitten the dust. That just leaves us with Mon Mothma...which I would assume is in the next post? o_O

    I'm happy to see that they defeated Palpatine, but I'm a little worried that they won't make it back to Padme in time. I will have to put my faith in Leia and her Jedi skills to help her mother. Perhaps healing will be an unexpected talent that Leia discovers she has. I sure hope so. Sad to see that there is only one chapter left in this story. It has been another fabulous read in an incredible streak of imaginative stories. You will definitely always get my vote for most prolific writer. :)

    Well, Palpy's dead - now the fun really beings. Bring on the revolution, but who will win, personally I'm backing the Skywalker's but that's mostly because they have an ex-Sith on their side.

    The real question is will Padme die? I hope not!

    RedGold - Sweet! Palpy got the shaft! Yeah, I know, bad pun More punnies! :D -Garm's toast? Aw shucks! But then someone had to die... - I didn't think too many readers would care about Garm! :eek:

    owphoenix- Yeah Palpy is dead! - Yep! He fell all the way to the bottom of Coruscant! [face_devil]

    Jeditheskyisblue - It took all three of them to beat Palpatine didn't it? - I figured Palpy would be hard to kill, so I tried to make it look hard! I'm not too good at those fight scenes. :D

    Jedi_BMK - Good thinking by Tycho in dealing with the situation. Also, good for Wes in finally figuring out he made a mistake even if the damage has been done. - Wes was very lucky Tycho was there to save his skin. :cool:

    QueenOfAces - I'm looking forward to the reunion scene, but I'm sad that this is coming to an end. I've really enjoyed the ride!- Well..... only ONE couple is going to have a 'reunion' scene! :eek: :eek:

    Alethia - Aww... are you planning on doing a sequel? - *faints* A sequel??? This has been the LONGEST story I've ever written. Hopefully, after this next post, you won't think it needs a sequel. :D I like the way the three Jedi all helped, but it was Anakin who struck the killing blow, so to speak- I had to stick to RoTJ a little bit. ;)


    Jerjerrod-Lennox- Palpatines dead. Will it change things? - I hope so! [face_devil]

    RebelMom - glad to see that Anakin kept his cool this time.- Anakin successfully stayed away from the dark side. Will the next big shocker make him relapse? :eek:

    bigbad01- Palpys dead!! Take that Mr Prune Man!- It's always satisfying to see Palpy fall down....down.... down..... [face_laugh]

    Katarina42 - You didn't tell us what happened to Padme, so no cookie for you! (Well, *yet* anyway.) - LOL! Too many other things were happening! :D That just leaves us with Mon Mothma...which I would assume is in the next post? - Hmmmm. OK!

    Laura_Anu - Palpy's dead, Madine's dead, I can't remember if Mothma's dead (but she's certainly incapacitated)- Mothma won't be causing any more problems for a long, long time. :D (maybe THAT could be the sequel... Revenge of the Mothma! [face_laugh]

    Solo_Fan - I'm happy to see that they defeated Palpatine, but I'm a little worried that they won't make it back to Padme in time. I will have to put my faith in Leia and her Jedi skills to help her mother.- Have no fear! Padme is onboard the Home One, and they have doctors and bacta tanks! ;)

    Kazzy - Bring on the revolution, but who will win, personally I'm backing the Skywalker's but that's mostly because they have an ex-Sith on their side. - Monnie will no longer be a player in the revolution. She let her greed get in the way of common sense, and once Wes tells what she had him do, it's unlikely any Rebel will still support her. But you never know..... like I said, that COULD be the sequel! :eek:

    NOW for the BIG THANKS! I hope I got everyone on this list that posted comments. Thank you all so very, very much for reading this long story. I hope the ending doesn't disappoint anyone. I wasn't too pleased with the last chapter, but I HAD to finish this up! :D

    Chapter Fifty-Three


    With the dark side control the Emperor held over his troops no longer there, the cohesive influence that kept the Imperials fighting to protect the dark Master vanished. Han watched in amazement as the TIE fighters suddenly began flying erratically, unable to hit their targets. The X-Wings were easily able to elude them, and began picking the Imps off, one right after the other. Many of the TIE fighters simply turned tail and ran, allowing the Rebel fighters to concentrate their firepower on the larger capital ships, which quickly started to show signs of distress as the X-Wings pounded at their defenses. In less than an hour, several Star Destroyers lost their shields and the ability to maneuver. As they spiraled out of control, they burned up in the atmosphere over Coruscant. Finally the remaining Destroyers turned and jumped into hyperspace, while a loud cheer went over the Rebel Commanders communication system.

    The Rebels had not won without their own heavy losses. Several dozen larger ships, including the Peregrine, had been destroyed. Eighty-three X-Wing pilots had also lost their lives, and many more were badly damaged. Many of the larger support ships had also sustained heavy damage, injuring quite of few of the crew members.

    The Corellian turned the Falcon, looking over at his partner. "I wonder what Mothma's been up to while we've been gone."

    *Probably up to no good,* Chewie woofed. *I hope we can convince the Rebels who support her that her plans are self-serving.*

    "I hope the kid is okay," Han muttered. "You know he can't stay outta trouble if I ain't around to help him."

    *He's a Jedi now, Han,* Chewie reminded his friend. *And quit saying 'ain't'.*

    ****************************

    Home One, three days later


    It had been a close call, but the speed of the medics, the talent of the Rebel doctors, and a three day soaking in a bacta tank had saved Padmé's life. Now Anakin sat by his wife's hospital bedside, holding her hand as she cried. No, crying was an understatement - Padmé was sobbing. "He was a good friend, Anakin."

    The Jedi bowed his head, looking at the floor, feeling both grief and jealousy rip at his emotions. "You loved him."

    Padmé glanced over at her husband through tear flecked eyelashes. "Garm was a friend," she repeated. "Friends can love each other."

    "It was more than just friendship. I saw the way he looked at you.... I could feel through the Force how he felt."

    She knew it was time she told the truth, no matter what the consequences. "It happened a long time ago," she confessed quietly, wiping her tears away. "I was so unhappy, so lonely. Please don't hate me, Anakin."

    "Hate is of the dark side," he answered sadly. "I can't hate you, and I'll never return to serving the dark side."

    "I'm glad to know that. Can you ever forgive me?"

    "I want to forgive you," Anakin said, standing up and letting go of her hand. "I've loved you ever since I was a child." When she didn't say anything, he asked, "Do you still love me?"

    "Of course. What happened with Garm... I wasn't myself then, Ani. I thought I was a strong person, and I could handle anything, but I couldn't. He was there for me during those dark times when I thought I would lose my mind from the oppressive grief."

    "Then what are you keeping from me, Padmé? There is something more, something you are still hiding."

    For Padmé, this was even harder than admitted her short love affair with the Corellian. "I....I had Garm's child."

    The revelation caught even the Jedi Master off guard. He felt the air rush from his lungs, and he stepped back away from her bed. "How long ago....where is the child?"

    "She would have turned sixteen next month," Padmé replied.

    "Would have?"

    "Halle never knew I was her mother. She was being raised by Garm."

    Anakin understood then. "She died onboard the Peregrine."

    Padmé nodded, unable to stop a fresh flow of tears. "She died... and, and I never even met her."

    I'm glad Padme is alive but no husband even if they were on the darkside at the time is going to take the fact that their wife had a child with another man while married to you well. I'm glad that Anakin came back.

    I'm going to miss this fic and the last part through me there with Padme having another child and all. Did the child really die with her Father?
