    Thanks, guys! I guess I'll keep it the same, less work for me ;)

    Jedi Johnson: thanks, I was considering archiving it, but I have to clean it up a bit beforehead :) I'll keep any developments posted on this thread.


    DC now has a prequel: A Son and Padawan. Find out about Luke's childhood!

    Quite a wonderful story here. Had my doubts about reading it but after reading your StSFS, I decided to give it a try. It didn't disappoint. :)

    Very predictable bad guy, Kane (already didn't like him when he showed up). Xizor's appearance was a surprise (totally forgot about SotE). His death was just too quick and simple but loved the way that Anakin stated it....a father's duty. :)

    Bail was a character that was easy to dislike and then feel sorry for. His death was no surprise due to all of your hints. Sabé's death was a total surprise though. It was heartbreaking, though I understood the reason behind it.

    I like your hints of how Anakin being the Chosen One can bring balance to force after not turning to the darkside. Shall look forward to your sequel to see how it will come about.

    This was a great story. Can't wait for the sequel. Kane is a meanie and needs to be dealt with as does Palipitine before Kane recruits him.

    SB: Heehee, thanks :D Glad to know you read it! ;)

    lija: Nice to know you liked it :) It is a bit on the longer side, so it must take effort to get through. Yep, Kane is the generic bad guy, maybe I didn't give him enough depth ... he was fun like that, though. By the time I got to the rooftop fight, I just wanted Xizor to die already. Besides, how long could he have lasted against Anakin? I wanted to make it exciting while still true to the characters' abilities as fighters. Xizor never stood a chance. Bail was very easy to dislike, but so is anyone that gets in the way of the romance. I couldn't have everyone be happy with his death because, afterall, Bail did rise Leia and worked in the rebellion, so he must have been a good guy. Ah, and finally somebody sees that Sabe needed to die. It's the Greek Tradgy thing, I think *shrug* I hope you stick around for the sequel and take a peak at the prequel ;) Thanks again!

    rouge-reblekid: OOOH, that's a fun part :D Thanks for reading!

    Aprilise: Thanks! :D Yeah *shudder* Kane and Palpy ... what a team they'd be ...

    Anakins Goddess: Thanks :) Much happy you liked. Recomendations? Well, seeing from your posts, you've already read some of the best A/A stuff around, including my beta/buddy's leaving. Lemme see.

    There is my other fic, To Stop the Suns from Setting. It's more of the classic A/A romance thing. Amidala's ship never lands on Tatooine. My other beta, Amidala_Skywalker, has Crystal Tiara (if you like major angst) and If the Mask Fits.

    Of course the best link I can give you is to StarBlazer's Ani/Ami Fan Fic Databank. Oh, yes, there is one :D and, oh, yes, it has every A/A currently up at the boards now linked. Ain't the internet a wonerful tool? ;) Have fun.

    I finally finished reading it.

    I think you did a WONDERFUL job with the fic. :)

    I'd like to address a few points people raised along the way.

    First of all, Bail. I think the main reason to dislike Bail was that he stood between Anakin and Padme. Aside from that, he seemed to be an overall decent person. He may have had his flaws, but he was a good ruler, he loved and raised Leia like she was his own, and his only real fault was loving someone who couldn't love him back the way he wanted.

    Kane: I'll admit is truly loathsome. I can't wait to see him get his just deserts in any sequel you have planned.

    Palpatine: I think he was left alive because the Jedi (and the Republic) don't have the death penalty. The Jedi do kill, but only when it's absolutely necessary in battle situations (like what Mace Windu did to Jango Fett).

    As for a sequel, I'd simply love to read one. It would tie up some loose ends in the fic. Such as how do Luke and Mara get to be together, and what happens with Han and Leia. BTW, since Anakin went to live on Naboo, will he be training Leia more in the Force?

    I wonder what shape the Order would be in four years down the road? They would likely have their numbers even further reduced by their own codes of celibacy and people refusing to give their children over for training.

    I suspect that Kane will spring Palpatine, which causes Anakin to have to return to duty. Perhaps then the Order will decide to allow its members to marry and have children of their own. It appears that even Obi-Wan now realizes that the rules of celibacy are counter-productive to the Order in terms of both it's continued existence and the lives of it's Knights.

    I can't wait to read the sequel. I'm also going to start reading the preguel. When will the sequel be up? :)

    Great job! :)

    I'm rereading this fic now.

    I forgot how good it is. :)

    I really hope there's a sequel to it at some point. :)
