    Sorry I disappeared again, but this time my comp is to blame. My power supply blew and due to lack of free time it took me almost 6 weks to repair it.

    Then I had to sort and install about 100 MB of data that I'd just dumped into the drive.

    But all this while I have been working on "Knight of Darkness' I must've written and rejected about 7 posts up until now. I'm halfwave throught the eight rewrite and hoping that my personal editor (me) passes it when I finish it.

    I'm also halfway through a post for this fic.

    I'm back. (With my third rewrite of the post.) I just hope its consistent with the rest of the fic. One tends to forget details when one hasn't updated or reread ones fic since several months. But hre its-Anakin headaches.

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


    Anakin stared at the tireless traffic that crisscrossed across the city skyline, never sleeping, never resting; somehow, the endless lines reflected his own restlessness. Was there ever an end to problems? Suddenly he felt tired and inexplicably exhausted he just wanted to lie down and forget everything else.

    Perhaps some day he would, he would leave the order and take control of his life-A life with his wife and future children. But that was all in the future, he had much to before he could get anywhere near that dream.

    First he had to convince Nat to stay here in his time and galaxy, and forget about her family-a difficult task made more difficult by the fact that he?d made promises to her. And even if she did opt to stay here there was the immediate problem of accommodations and supporting his family.

    True, the Jedi Order met all the needs of individual Jedi and provided for their meals and accommodations, their medical care and general well being from the time they entered the temple till death. But Jedi were not paid-at least not regular wages that could sufficiently support even a small family- and since having families wasn?t a Jedi norm the Order did not make special provisions for the rare cases that did cropped up.

    Anakin sighed heavily, thinking about his last meeting with the Jedi council. He had asked them for just that, a special provision for him concerning accommodations for his wife. When they had refused he had offered to give his child to the temple if she was force sensitive-even though he hadn?t discussed that with his wife.

    Sure, the people of this galaxy were mostly honored when their child was chosen for Jedi training but he didn?t know how she?d react and in all this running about from Coruscant to Theed and umpteen missions in between he?d never had a chance to discuss the future of their child-But as it so happened the council had not been moved.
    ?Naturally we will accept the child, Mace Windu hadexplained but there are some rules; rules that cannot be changed or broken.? Anakin had left disappointed and helmed in more than ever with the burden of his burgeoning problems.

    So he?d come to the Senate Building in a very sour and hopeless mood. Palpatine was his last hope to give him temporary accommodations till he was able to somehow support his family himself. But there were a couple of things he had to attend to first. Amidala?s killers-he couldn?t rest. Day and night the rage burned inside him, thinking of those murderers eating, drinking and enjoying life while the kindest of souls that was Senator Padmé had been robbed of her?s, least he could do was bring her killers to justice. And there was still the question of his trials. Anakin felt that the council would be more accommodating after he became a Jedi Knight.


    The door behind him opened. A large animated group of humans and non-humans exited from Palpatine?s office. Anakin waited for Palpatine?s aid to invite him in before he went inside.

    He was relieved to find the Chancellor sitting alone at his spacious desk.

    ?Welcome, Anakin.? The chancellor said in his usual calm and soothing voice, which immediately set Anakin?s agitated mind at peace.

    Anakin bowed his head in Jedi greeting.

    ?What can I do for you?? Palpatine said, indicating the chair in front of his desk. Anakin sat down beaming. This man always managed to put him at ease. He was just another Padawan but Palpatine always made him feel important and special. He wondered for the hundredth time why Natalie was so wary of him, considering the fact that she?d just met him once or twice. Anakin had tried to reason with her that Palpatine was the kindest man in the universe but she?d stuck to her own arguments. Women were so unreasonable sometimes, he thought.

    Thanks and welcome evard, any new readers are welcomed things have slowed much on the classic boards and the mods won't let me repost this fic on the saga board because it is an actor fic. But I'm going to try again to convince them.

    Sorry for neglecting this fic! Lately I've been giving all my attention to 'Knight of darkness' but I'm hoping to, at least occasionally update the othr fics too.

    Glad you like this fic. This fic is co written by me and Bellyup. Unfortunately it seems both of us have been pretty embroiled lately. Could you PM me the post first, I have to see that it doesn't deviate much from our original story line. I'l have to get in touch with my co writer too.

    Powerfulforce I will have to ask you to remove the above post. This story is not a round robin, it has a story line that is mostly decided.

    If you want to, you may post the story which you asked permission by PM.

    I'm really sorry about this but this story has a couple of surprises still and your post conflicts totally with what we have in mind for this fic.
