I don't know about that index, LLL. There are enough Palpy-centric bunnies in the Plot Bunny Thread; maybe we should post these there as well so that they get more exposure. Anyway, after much reflection, I'm going to try to answer your question again. Truth is, I would like to see more Palpatine stories, period. There aren't many, and that's a shame. With such an intriguing, multifaceted character, there is an infinity of ideas and possibilities to be explored. I'm writing several, but other people can see things I've missed, and that's what I would like to read. One particular aspect I would like to see explored is the relationship between Palpatine and PadmÃ©. Like someone said earlier, he must have been at least a mentor to her, and this is interesting, mainly because they're so different. Their beliefs clash, but think about how much they helped each other politically: according to the Star Wars Visual Dictionary, he was "instrumental" in getting her elected as Queen, and she practically made him Chancellor. The tension in this relationship is breathtaking. I've seen AUs about it, but I would like to read a story that delves into their 'friendship' as it is in canon, because there are some holes in the movies where it's concerned. As I said before, if it hasn't been written, I write it, and that's what I'm doing. It is the epic project I'm working on. But I wish other people could write about this without going in the controversial direction my story will take.
