I admire your writing skills very much, your story is emotional and heartrending. I loved the conversation between Padme and Anakin and Anakins speech to the court. Your portraits of the characters are so welldone, a convincing description of their feelings and behavior. It was a very harsh sentence, Anakin doesn't deserve death. He has been cooperative and repent of his sins, unlike WW2 war criminals, Saddam Hussein e.g. and that should be rewarded. I understand your point of view about death penalty in many countries here on earth, but the international wars crimes tribunals only have life imprisonment, which should take for a model. Anyway, your story isn't finished yet and there has been many turns till now. You keep your reader on the rack.
