    More questions. I loved that he attacked her without knowing it, as if he'd fought his demons and she was merely the manifestation of them. I loved that he came back into himself and realized he'd almost killed her.

    Loved this.

    Padmé,

    I told you that when you are with me, you place yourself in danger. But you did not understand or did not want to believe that the danger I spoke of would come from me. You are kind and caring, unlike any being I have ever known. I knew my presence would only cause you pain, and it was my own selfishness, my own need to linger in your soothing warmth, that kept me by your side. But I cannot hurt you any longer. Angels should not linger in the presence of evil.


    Great job.

    And yes I am hoping for a happy ending. Bribes??? I don't know. How about some virtual brownies? I make the best!

    :_| Why must you keep torturing these two? *sniffle* Poor Anakin... what is it about his past that is so horrid?

    This isn't fair...:(

    There seems to be much more in Anakin's past than I had previously thought. Hopefully all will be revealed soon....

    That was so sad and horrible. :_| Anakin and Padme need to work on their communications skills. Running away from each other like that never solves anything.

    Like everyone else, I'm getting curiouser and curiouser about Anakin's past. :confused: I do hope you'll update again soon.

    Wow, I have to admit I am getting more and more curious. Three chapters away? I will be sitting on the edge of my seat.

    It is amazing how Anakin is trying to hide his past life from Padmé once and again. And how Padmé keeps her patience to try and help Anakin, even if he doesn't seem to want to be helped.

    Great update, eagerly awaiting for more!

    Oh wow. What an update. And I mean that in the best possible way. :eek:

    "When will you learn that you can't save everyone, Padmé?" Anakin yelled. Still holding her arms, he shook her slightly, as if trying to force her to see reason. "Stop trying to turn me into one of your damned fool's crusades. I'm not one of the orphans at your school or a stray animal that you can just take in and nurse back to health." Angered and hurt, Padmé tried to pull away from him, but Anakin held her firmly, his voice becoming softer. "Some wounds run too deep to be healed. Don't you see? Who I am?what I have done?" Anakin stared into her eyes, the blue orbs pleading with her, begging her to understand. "There are some things that no one can fix, Padmé."

    Brilliant chapter! :D

    Anakin's letter is beautiful.

    Just when you think they are going to get together, then wham, Gina slams the door shut on that silly notion ;). Very poignant update. It seems that Anakin is going ro remain stubborn, despite the fact that he can trust her. When will he ever learn?

    Great work! Looking forward to more :).

    No, I'm not dead, amazingly. DRL has just been vicious these past months - year. I finally caught up on this story and I must say your talent never ceases to amaze me, Gina. This story gets better with each chapter. I have to wonder though, are Ani and Padme ever going to get a break? It just seems angsty to me. Come on, it has to have a happy ending at least. Not that I am wishing for the fic anytime soon, mind you. ;) It's just I've been rooting for those two since chapter one and well, I hate to see them not get a happy ending.

    Nicely done, though. I eagerly await more and hopefully this time DRL will let me enjoy it easier.

    Oh man, you've got me in a maze running around wondering what's so terrible about Anakin's past

    I take that as a compliment! ;)


    ratna

    Evil woman? :eek: Who? Me? O:) Why I'll have you know that I'm kind and sweet and love puppies and rainbows, etc. :p


    Jinngerbread

    Okay, so that's two in the 'evil woman' camp. o_O

    Hopefully this next update will do a little damage control. :p

    Things are about to get worse aren't they?

    Now why would you think that? [face_batting]


    MoAngel

    Yep! Pig-headed nerf herder is a good way to describe him! [face_laugh]


    Vivid_Scripts

    Anakin, exactly what were you?

    Well he wasn't Santa Claus, I can assure you of that. [face_devil]


    HandmaidenVeme

    Yes, but he forgot that Angels can also drive away the evil...

    Depends on the evil... [face_mischief]


    jmsbndgrl

    I don't know... Trouble just seems to follow these two... [face_worried]


    JediXManSerenaKenobi

    But catching up with him is only half the battle. :(


    dianethx

    More questions.

    Good! [face_mischief]

    And yes I am hoping for a happy ending. Bribes??? I don't know. How about some virtual brownies? I make the best!

    :eek: Now how did you know that virtual brownies are my most favorite bribe?! :p


    AnakinLuver

    Why must you keep torturing these two? *sniffle*

    But...it's so much FUN! [face_devil]


    jedi_princess18

    Oh, his closet is just overflowing with skeletons. [face_skull]


    DragonLotus

    You are doing an excellent job of keeping us on the edge!

    Thank you! [:D] I aim to please. LOL!!!


    PadawanMom5610

    Anakin and Padme need to work on their communications skills. Running away from each other like that never solves anything.

    LOL!! Yes, they definitely need work. Maybe we should enroll them in a couples class or all chip in and buy them a book on how couples communicate. [face_laugh]


    MissSkywalker68

    Yes, so far Padme has been extremely patient with his tight-lipped behavior. Hmmm...okay, pun intended. :p But I'm not sure how much more she'll be able to take before she resorts to aggressive negotiations. LOL!


    VaderLVR64

    Thank you, NanaVader! :D [:D]


    Ulic_Starwalker

    Thank you! :D Glad you liked Anakin's letter. As for everything turning out well, they have a long road ahead of them. [face_worried]


    JediMasterRev

    Just when you think they are going to get together, then wham, Gina slams the door shut on that silly notion

    And just exactly what are you saying? That I love writing angst or something? :p [face_laugh]

    It seems that Anakin is going ro remain stubborn, despite the fact that he can trust her. When will he ever learn?

    He'll probably never learn because he's a man, so being stubborn is hardwired into his genetic makeup. But I'm excluding my male readers from that generalization, of course. LOL!


    michaellover

    Anakin's okay ? for now. As for Palo, I'm sure he'll still manage to cause them problems even in death. :(


    Galactic_Girl

    Hi there! Good to see you back. [:D] I hope DRL eases up on you! I'm glad you're still enjoying the fic.

    I have to wonder though, are Ani and Padme ever going to get a break?

    You never know? [face_whistling]


    Here's the next update. :)



    Author's Note: I wanted to take this opportunity to thank my readers and everyone who nominated and voted for this story in the recent Saga Awards. This story is special to me, and I am honored that it won the award for Best Drama. Thank you again, everyone, for all your support.

    Padmé's heartbeat pulsated loudly in her ears as she hurried through the abandoned sector, the lantern held before her like a beacon as she glanced />

    Wow, HOT! Whew! The passion is back!!!

    Well, that's one thing resolved. So we know they love each other, and we know he's no Jedi. Or he was and turned Sith, or he was, turned Sith, then turned back again, or...

    Thank you for the great update, and so quickly. I really, really enjoyed it.

    *fans self* They are definitely not lacking in passion. Now we just need Anakin to share the true nature of his past with her, but at least they are taking one step in the right direction.

    Wonderful post! :)

    He lifted his hand to her cheek, stroking the tender flesh and leaving a trail of heat wherever his fingers caressed her, searing her skin with his desire and branding her as his own. He leaned down, dropping tender kisses along the curve of her neck, and she reveled in the feel of his hot breath against her skin. When he began to suckle gently at the pulse of her throat, Padmé inhaled sharply, throwing her head back and arching into the warmth of his mouth.

    gah....=P~

    [face_blush] *sigh* That was amaz-za-zing... :D Only if I could've been in Padme's place... *purrr* Anakin, you make any girl want you all to herself!!!:p

    But, does anyone else start to believe that Anakin is/was in fact actually a Sith, not a Jedi? [face_thinking] He does have some serious anger issues, as always... ;)

    Stellar update Gina and come back with more very, very soon!:)

    WOW!! I think that the room just got a little hotter while I was reading that...:p

    So, Padme found a lightsaber in Anakin's trunk....I'm guessing he was probably not a Jedi since he's got some serious trust and anger management issues. [face_thinking]

    Great post and thanks for the PM!

    Behold the power of the Dark Side, This WILL lead to a happy ending.

    Beautiful. Touching. Gorgeous. Exquisite. HAWT. =P~ That about sums it up! :D


    "For so long, I tried to ignore what I felt for you, tried to tell myself that I didn't?that I would be foolish to?but I can't lie to myself any longer." Anakin's fingers moved down her neck and along her arm. He took her hand and pressed it gently against the flesh above his heart. Padmé felt the steady rhythm of its beating beneath her palm. "It is no longer mine," he whispered, and Padmé saw tears glistening in his eyes. "It's yours. It has always been yours, Padmé, even before I knew you."

    Padmé closed her eyes and nudged closer to him, moving her hand to kiss that same flesh. "I love you," she muttered against him.

    His breath still coming in ragged gasps, Anakin lifted her face to stare into her eyes. "I love you, too, Padmé," he whispered before capturing her lips in a tender kiss.

    Was Anakin a Jedi hiding and let the dark side take hold of him for awhile? Or is he a Sith that left and doesn't want to be one anymore?

    At least Padme and Anakin have let the other know how they feel about each other.

    I too am having a hard time waiting for more. Love the passion, but seriously wanting to know just what Anakin really is...Jedi? Sith? Jeth? Sidi?

    I?m sad and somehow happy that I?d fallen behind because it made catching up so much fun, to say nothing of all the cliffhangers I just jumped across.

    Padmé?s dream was very visceral. I love the way you balance description with dialogue and raw emotion. I had a feeling that her trip into the night to find Anakin will lead to more danger, but hopefully, an eventual consummation of their mutual feelings.
