    WHAT?!? Vader's dead and the Emperor is alive! How dare you! [face_devil]

    Yech! Another Mara Jade story. I really was hoping you could do without that murderous teenage dreamgirl, but oh well... ;)

    A very well told story, so I can't stop reading!

    I must say I wasn't expecting that. Luke isn't in a good place. And Darth Daddy could still be alive. Who knows. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I agree with RebelMom ; still, if Vader's alive, how come Mara didn't find him when she caught Luke ? if he was strong enough to prevent her from catching him when Mara came, he would have done so ; and he if wasn't strong enough... well, the Rebels who found the shuttle would've found him too...

    unless Anakin isn't back from the dark side ? ooh no !

    Twinnie, stop talking like that or I'll die of a stress-induced heart attack!! ;)

    Of course Vader's still alive!! And he's good too!! And those pesky Rebels didn't get their grubby hands on him!! And the aliens have landed in my high school parking-lot and are asking for directions to the local ice-cream stand (which is across the street BTW ;) ) cuz they ran out of their suppy of death by chocolate and just had to replace it cuz their captain was in serious withdrawl!! Which can be expected cuz, well, it's chocolate!! Hmm, chocolate . . . And . . .

    --I better stop while I still have a shred of dignity left . . . :p

    If Vader's dead and Luke's alive then all I have to say is..."Always two there are."

    Grr, Luke could have easily force yanked the blaster from Mara.

    wait a minute, Luke is alive? Then whose body is it that they found? I am assuming it was a decoy. Wouldn't Leia feel it if Luke died? And why would they accuse him of being a traitor?

    Good Story,anyway.

    Kay, everyone, a really long post is on its way as soon as possible. The plot is proving somewhat difficult at this point and I want to make sure every detail is taken care of--so it might take me a couple of days, but it IS coming........

    Whew! the post is here....enjoy! :) :)




    The blaster nudged Luke in the shoulder, prodding him to walk faster as they stepped out of the elegant rooms into a wide, carpeted hallway.


    The walls of the corridor were lined with ornately carved black sconces, small tongues of orange flame curling out of them, lapping at the dark shadows. Stationed in an orderly manner down the hall, stood the imposing Imperial guards, armed to the teeth with visible weaponry.


    "Just so you know to behave," the red-haired young woman told him pleasantly, noting his observance of the guards and jabbing the blaster in his back again.


    There was little question in Luke's mind of where they could possibly be. Although he wasn't much of a seasoned traveler, the cityscape view from the window, combined with the grandeur of what he'd seen so far, made Luke fairly certain he was on Coruscant in the infamous Imperial palace.


    His question was, how had he gotten here?


    Luke searched his last memories, trying to figure out what had happened. His last blurry recollection was of the Emperor leering as blue lightning leapt off his fingertips and Luke's own pain-filled pleas to his father to help him. He remembered nothing after that. Palpatine had gleefully reassured Luke that he would die, but something had obviously changed the wicked leader's mind.


    They reached a bank of turbolifts at the end of the hall and Luke and the young woman rode in silence until the lift deposited them on a new floor, almost completely identical to the last. They walked to the end of another corridor and came to two huge doors of ancient orowood carved in intricate patterns and protected by two red-clad guardsmen. Despite their old-fashioned appearance, the doors slid smoothly open upon their arrival.


    Inside was a small, dark anteroom connecting with more doors. Luke tood a deep breath as he was nudged forward, knowing what ordeals probably awaited him inside, and secretly dreading it. The second set of doors opened, and Luke, who was expecting a duplication of the throne room on the Death Star, started in mild surprise.


    The room was a grand corridor of columns and bleached stone, the extraordinary architecture of some long-extinct civilization.


    Massive windows--several stories high--covered the far wall, bathing the corridor in orange and purple twilight of the planet's setting sun and providing the room's only illumination. Unlike the landscape from Luke's rooms, no buildings or vehicles obstructed the throne room's breathtaking view of the huge city or of space beyond.


    Luke could see the dark silhouette of Palpatine's throne, facing away from them and eclipsed by the light from the sunset, and next to the Emperor, as motionless as a statue, a black shadow, stood Darth Vader.


    At the sight of his father, Luke felt his emotions unexpectedly rise to the surface. He was suddenly angry at his father for not being strong enough to turn back to the light side, and then the tide of his fury turned and he was furious at himself for being so foolish as to think he could face Vader and the Emperor alone, for naively assuming he could turn his father back.


    *Stop it!* He berated himself firmly. *Anger is of the Dark Side.* And now, of all times, he had to be calm; at peace like Yoda had taught him. His very salvation depended on it.


    The blaster prodded him in the back again, and he obediently moved forward, slowly ascending the pale stone steps, his feet like lead.


    There was only the clipped sound of their footsteps, echoing throughout the hall. Palpatine and Vader watched, silently, as they approached.


    They stopped in front of the throne and Luke was aware of the young woman stepping back, placing her blaster back in its holster, standing at attention.


    Palpatine, his shriveled, rotting features hidden under the dark cowl of his black hood, nodded his approval to her. "You are dismissed."


    She bowed curtly and turned on her heel. Luke listened to t
