    Posting this on my grandmother?s birthday? Nana, you?ve been gone almost 25 years now, but I still remember. Thank you for showing me the way.


    Chapter 47: Life Ever Changing




    Anakin laughed as Luke ran ahead, chasing after his sister. The busy streets of Coruscant were their playground now, and they had taken to their new lives with an ease and grace that still surprised him at times. He glanced at his side, and then toward Padmé?s hand resting on the crook of his arm. Her face was glowing with happiness and he felt his own contentment well up in response.

    They had a good life here and the future stretched out before them with great promise. ?Look at them,? Padmé said, shaking her head. ?They?re worse than kitlings chasing after a ball of yarn!? She shielded her eyes from the glare of the sun as it shone through the valleys created by endless rows of towering buildings.

    ?They?ve got a lot of pent-up energy,? he reminded her. They had just returned from a trip to Tatooine and the long journey had made the twins restless. ?Besides, they?ve never been exactly quiet.? He winked at his wife and she laughed in response.

    ?No, I don?t suppose they have,? she agreed. She sighed happily and leaned her head on his arm. ?They?re growing up so fast,? Padmé murmured.

    ?I know,? Anakin replied, and there was a note of nostalgia in his voice. It would not be too long and the twins would be living their own lives, far from their mother and father. Where had more almost fourteen years gone? It seemed that they had been babies just a few weeks ago, and now here they were, right on the verge of adulthood. He had blinked and they had grown up. The thought made him feel old suddenly.

    Padmé, sensing his mood, stopped and turned him so that she could place a gentle kiss on his cheek, standing on her toes to do so. ?You?re not old, you know,? she whispered teasingly. ?You?re absolutely?perfect.? Her smile would have melted durasteel and Anakin felt his sadness drift away in response.

    ?You always know what to say,? he said quietly. They began following their children once more. One did not allow young, rambunctious Skywalkers out of your sight for too long or disaster would result ? it was a lesson they had both learned quite well over the years.

    In the handful of years since young Cliegg had been returned to his grateful parents, many changes had come about for both the Skywalker and Lars families. The Skywalkers now lived on Coruscant, having sold their farm to Owen Lars nearly three years ago. At first, Anakin had />

    ?It?s been my pleasure, my love.? She laughed up at him and then they began once more to follow their children. Ahead of them, they heard the twins? laughter, glanced at each other and smiled. Light shone ahead of them, shining between two towers, beckoning them onward.

    The Skywalkers followed.


    That was a wonderful ending to such a great fic. Anakin becoming a flight instructor seems like it would be a great place for him. He's among the Jedi, but not officially part of it. I'm glad Padmé could help in causes again, it seems right for her.

    Excellent work, I'm so happy I found this!

    Oh, what a wonderful ending to one of my all-time favorite stories! Bravo!

    *standing ovation*

    When I left the theater after my first viewing of RotS, I decided to turn to the fan fiction world to find a story just like this one. (You know, to take some of the sting out of the ending of the A/P story. :() Well, it took some digging, but I was thrilled when I found Deep Into a Darkness Peering - it was the exact premise I was looking for. And goodness knows, you delivered the happy ending I wanted and then some.

    Thank you for writing one of the best stories I have ever read - novels included. This is a masterpiece I shall be reading again and again.

    Congratulations!

    Ah! Yes I love your stories. For all your Vaderish wickedness there is a soft heart hiding underneath. I suspect that has a lot to do with your Nana. Mine comes from my Grany.

    I love the Skywalker family you created full of hope and potential. This was a beautiful story and well worth the wait.

    Good work

    Oh, Happy Birthday Gran! @};-

    Awwwwwwwww [face_love]

    What a perfect ending to this wonderful story. I have truly enjoyed every word of it and I can now say I have read an Anakin/Padme story all the way through to it's completion, and enjoyed it immensely :D =D= I think that idea of Obi-Wan and Luke needs to be expanded :p I want to see more of that!

    I hate to see this wonderful story come to an end but you captured the moment so very well I was overwhelmed. Great job and I look forward to more of your fics in the future.

    I'm in tears right now - seriously. That was... :_| :_| I can't put into words how perfect that ending was. I don't feel just the closure of another story coming to an end; it's deeper somehow. Like I actually left my room, lived 14 years with the Skywalkers, and am now set gently back onto my chair. I know, it makes no sense, but that's what it feels like. :)

    Anakin was a husband and father first, a flight instructor second ? and that was the way it should be. He was no longer defined by his career, but by his family, just as he wished.

    I LOVED this line. This was the line that finally brought closure to the man that is Anakin. Whatever else happens, it doesn't matter because he's finally achieved his deepest, most precious dream.

    =D= :_| =D= That was amazing, VaderLVR! I'm so glad I came along for the ride. And thank you for writing it. ;)

    ?I?m thinking about how lucky I am,? Anakin answered honestly. ?It could have all been so different?? He shuddered slightly, remembering his visions from years ago. How terrible to think that he had come so close to such a bitter, lonely existence.
    Congrats Mama Vader you redeemed Anakin for us the way it should have been. Bueatiful story. thank you!=D=

    Wow what a lovely ending! It was wonderful to see how good Padme was a reading Anakins mind - even without the force. I also loved the way you summed up the children's characters perfectly!

    Was a fabulous end to a wonderful story!

    Thanks so much for all the work you put into this VaderLVR64!
