    Lovely mush, satacysatrip, with a lot of thought behind it. I think it's a great idea to build these vignettes into a story. I lok forward to reading it!

    ?Why not?? ... ?It works for me.?
    LMAO. Someday he will be the greatest Jedi ever. If he can overcome his gender. ;)

    The first lesson Master Qui-Gon taught me was to trust my instincts, to feel and not to think.
    Buddy, I don't think this is what he had in mind. :p

    ?This will never be over, no matter what we do.?
    Or whom we become? :_| Nice foreshadowing -- even though there's no express reference to Padme in the ROTJ film, there's no doubt in my mind that Luke's love triggers memories of Padme that help Anakin turn back from darkness.

    Great post. :D

    Lovely! I can see it happening this way. Very sweet, but not syrupy. I hope you write the longer story, too!

    tun_dot_com Yep, sorry, only one more. But the keyboard will be going mad tonight, because I have a lot of inspiration for the next one.

    geo3 Thank you. Yeah, it was kinda mushy, and I'm not much of a mush queen. I have to temper my mush. I'll get started on my full-blown story soon!

    Darth_Lex Not to get too personal, but my husband's brand of logic inspired that line. I love how men think there's nothing in life but sex sometimes, that it's all-important.

    Lady_Skywalker Don't worry, I will!

    Dally Yeah, I couldn't make it too syrupy. Sugary-sweetness makes me ILL, besides, it's not Anakin and Padme.

    The last post should be up tomorrow guys! Plus, I'd like to have a beta-reader for my aforementioned next project. Any takers, just PM me!

    I'm sorry to be coming in on the end of this, but better late than never (I'm a lurker of galactic proportions ;)), I wanted to say how much I've enjoyed these extrapolations of yours. :) If you do decide to do that full-blown AotC story, count on me as a reader!

    Very cool sig, too. :D That was a great SW reference.

    I've been lurking around here, but I decided to comment on this story after a few posts. I'm at loss for words! The interaction between Anakin and Padme is excellent, and I can really see all of those scenes occuring in AOTC. Great job, stacy.

    Alderaan21 and Seraph-Skywalker Welcome! I'm glad you decided to de-lurk, and I'm glad you've enjoyed these viggies of mine. The next one should be up later tonight.

    Well everyone, we've reached the end. I want to thank all of you for your support of my first MAJOR attempt at an ongoing fan-fic. Your positive responses and feedback have been really great, and I hope you'll take a look at any work I do in the future!

    May I present "My Wedding Day," which is told as thoughts from Ani and Padme's pov prior to their wedding. Enjoy!

    My Wedding Day

    I?m getting married today! Even though the hour draws so near, I can hardly believe that I have come to this point in my life. My parents and sister were beginning to believe it would never come. But it has; my wedding day.


    When I was a little girl, I would sometimes envision what this day might be like. I could see my mother in an elegant dress, her eyes brimming with tears of joy. I could see my darling father, handsome and refined, escorting me down an aisle covered with Nubian rose petals, his eyes beaming with pride, giving my husband-to-be a good-natured glare as if to say, ?If you ever do anything to hurt my little girl, you will answer to me.?


    I could see my older sister, helping me with my dress and hair and makeup, making sure that everything is perfect. I could see the doors of one of Naboo?s ancient temples swinging open, as I glided down the aisle in a beautiful white lace gown and veil. I could see the man I loved, standing in the front of the sanctuary, nervously waiting for my arrival, and turning to see me as I made my entrance; I could see his awestricken expression that grew into a smile radiating pure joy. The man was tall, handsome, strong and brave?


    That is about the only thing that has come to pass?the man. My family is still in Theed, completely oblivious about what I am doing today. Unfortunately, secrecy will be a necessity in my marriage, and it is a sacrifice I have become more and more willing to make. In a way, I am glad that Anakin and I will be the only ones to share this.


    Anakin. Just invoking his name brings me peace and excitement. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined that ten years ago, when I walked into that dusty, sweltering junk shop on Tatooine, I laid eyes on my future husband. He was a little boy, precocious and wide-eyed, fascinated with me but determined to make his dreams a reality. Within minutes of our meeting, he unassumingly informed me that he would marry me one day. I dismissed his proclamation as mere innocence and naivete, but he knew. Perhaps he knew, even before we met.


    Our journey has been a difficult one, to say the least. Our feelings have grown from mutual admiration and respect to friendship to passion, and I had fought it each step of the way. But the more I tried to convince myself that I did not love him, the more my need for him consumed me. Even now, I shake my head at the fact that I, Padmé Amidala, former Queen of Naboo, current Galactic Senator and survivor of two epic battles have fallen hopelessly in love with a former innocent slave boy turned brash Jedi Padawan. But I do love him, without question, without reservation, and without condition.


    And I?m marrying him today. I?m not nervous, surprisingly. I remember Sola?s wedding day; she had hyperventilated at least twice, had nearly retched on my bridesmaid gown, and I had thought that she would surely lose consciousness before the ceremony?s end. But right now, I am exuding calmness and serenity. It is not without irony; for all the difficulties a relationship (let alone marriage) with Anakin will no doubt bring, I am more at peace by surrendering to my love for him then I ever was trying to combat it.


    He loves me, more than anything. I know it; I feel it in my bones. He would realign the stars and planets if only to ensure my happiness. He is that handsome, brave young man from my daydreams all those years ago.


    And today, I will become his wife.

    I?m getting married today! I?m marrying the woman of my dreams, my angel, my Padmé. I?ve had to pinch myself several times this mo

    That was beautiful. It was well written--you should have written AOTC! I hope you write another story with Anakin and Padme.

    This is a wonderful, wonderful line, and not only sums up the truth about Anakin at this stage in the story but shows how much Padme understands that truth!

    I?ve certainly done nothing to deserve this gift that has been bestowed upon me, the gift of her love.

    This one is also looks straight into his heart.


    This is another lovely post in your series! I really am looking forward to the long story!

    Great post! :D

    Padme is calm, content, and resolved -- as she always is once she has made up her mind. Anakin is anxious, ill at ease, and unsure despite his convictions -- as unstable as ever. I am quite sure this is what the AOTC characters must have been like.

    Looking forward to your longer story. Be sure to let me know when you start posting it.

    Beautiful. I wish the future was brighter for these two, but it's nice to read about their happiness now.

    Again, I just want to thank all of you for reading these viggies and for your responses. I'm working on the full-fledged story as we speak. Some of it might be repetitive for those of you who have read this, but hopefully you'll enjoy it anyway. I'm thinking of calling it "Bring Me to Life: The AotC You Didn't See."
