    EDIT: I love TheForce.net, really I do. But I would suggest if you want to read this fic, read the revised version I have posted on fanfiction.net, under the name Caslia. The posts have all mostly been edited and revised, and new chapters added. Thanks very much,
    Caslia

    Cool!!! I'm finally going to have something to read!!! And inspire myself ffrom, actually, since I have no idea how write my own fic... hehe :D

    Hope you're going to get better (saner) as you writ this... And by the way you can always move to Canada if you can't stay in Taïwan and don't want to go to the States, I'm sure I could make some room for you in my room, and over here we are not know for having a lot of computer problems :D :D

    Well, then I'll just be waiting for your post over here and work a little at the same time...

    Rebirth of the Light? *goes over to read* *comes back* Cool! More Vader-redemption! (Can there ever be enough of those? ;)) And I agree with what you said about a lot of those fics seeming to have suddenly everyone trusting him and everything. Kind of unrealistic, I think.

    I love how you write, though. Very poetic :D. I'm a writer too. I haven't written any SW fics yet, though, although I have this idea for an Ani-fic, more set in Episode III, but the main premise is so . . . uncannon that I'm kind of afraid that people will think I'm insane for thinking it [face_blush] Anyway, I hope you get your stuff back soon and can amuse yourself with your grandparents' computer until then :D

    Okay sorry to burst your bubble but i think you should write the authors note after you write the summary to get more readers onto this story, it might put people off.

    Of course i'm here i'm always were you are always you just don't know because i'm always hiding.

    When do you actually post though.

    Rebirth of light link didn't work *shrugs*.

    anyways my computer is still not working so i won't get back until tuesday.....forgive me master :_| :_| :_| .

    Argh! The Caslia is back!!!! *hides behind her face*

    Uh, I'm not afraid, I'm not...because...because I'm the grat KEEWING DUCK!!! (Remember that cartoon? How I loved it...) And I'm really tired so just pay no attention, okay?

    Well, okay, Caslia, now that you've got our attention, why don't start writing? It's no good keeping readers waiting, you know? And trust me, I should know... ;)

    Love, Kee

    A nice surprice, thank you.

    I always thought the conclusion of RoL a bit sort. Of course I'm interested in the years inbetween.

    :D Yeah! You all came. Oh, I feel loved. [face_love]

    Don't worry, Kithana. I forgive you. ;) And yes, you're probably right about the summary thing. Ah well, too late now. Yes, Kee, you would know. Have you posted recently? I haven't been over to see. Lady Z, glad to see you're so excited. :) I just knew you would be.

    :D Once again...Yeah! :D

    Do I have to post now? I want to drag on this great feeling of having surprised you all so wonderfully! :)

    Okay, guess I will. But only because I love you all so much. [face_love] Well, okay, that, and I love torturing Anakin. [face_devil]

    [face_devil] Remember, though. I'm not really evil. I just have a cynical disposition. [face_devil]

    Rebirth of the Light
    The Years Between

    Chapter One:
    The Days Following


    *** *** ***

    Immediately following Rebirth of the Light?

    *** *** ***


    There should have been music.

    There should have been a choir singing some heavenly song; bright, white light spilling in from somewhere. The sound of children giggling, or a trumpet?s golden horn playing. An angel should have descended down from the ceiling and spoken some soft but heavenly words, touched his mask and all the Darkness would melt away.

    None of this happened, however.

    But it didn?t matter. Vader?formerly a Dark Lord of the Sith, a servant of the Emperor Palpatine, knelt humbly on the floor in a little cottage with a babe wrapped in his arms.

    His babe. His son.

    ?Luke.?

    The child, only an hour old, cooed at the sound of his father?s voice and little blue eyes opened to stare with wonder up at Vader.

    Who needed heaven, or angels singing or any other miracle, when he held this child, or his daughter, little Leia, in his arms? They, all on their own, without even knowing it, had changed the fate of the galaxy, simply by being born.

    Bending his head down, Vader smiled softy as he whispered to the child.

    ?I love you, son.?

    Love?

    They were words he had thought, only an hour or so ago, that he would never say again. But then, he never thought he would see his Padme again. Would ever be at peace with his best friend Obi-wan. Or that he might ever speak his name, Anakin, again in this life without the foul bile rising up and choking him, reminding him of the past and all that had come between him and those that he loved.

    There it was again. That wonderful, terrifying, intoxicating word.

    But words were so useless. They could trick, could be twisted, or could fail to explain this burning emotion that now raged inside him.

    Where was the hate? The anger, the rage and the fear?

    He had traded them, as if he had handed over the identity of Darth Vader for that of Anakin Skywalker, renewing who he was and the way he saw the world.

    So deep was Vader?Anakin?in these thoughts, that he did not hear Padme?s voice speaking to him till her small, delicate hand came to rest upon his board shoulder and shake him quite soundly.

    ?Hmmm? What??

    His wife, his angel, all glowing with the wonders of motherhood, laughed. ?Oh, Ani.? She chided. ?Where had you gone this time??

    Careful of the babe in his arms, of Luke nestled up against him and Leia in her mother?s arms, Anakin stretched out his hand and brushed the curls away from Padme?s face. ?Not far, my love. Not far. I?m still here. Here to stay, now. I promise.?

    Content with that, Padme nodded, then motioned for him to give her Luke. ?He needs to be fed.? Winking, she took the child from her husband. ?I think the three of us need a little time alone together. To rest and to be close. Will you give me that, Ani??

    ?Anything for you.?

    But despite this claim, Anakin felt hollow as Luke was taken from his arms and he stood to leave the room. Leave?! But he had only been with them an hour?s time! One hour, when he had not seen Padme in nearly a year. An hour, in which his life had been returned to him.

    But he had to be understanding.

    He stood, despite the stiffness in his mechanical legs from sitting so long, and moved to the door. If he noticed the spirit of an old Jedi Master standing there, he was in too great a wonder to comment on it.

    Hoping for fresh air, even though he knew the idea was strange and even to the point of being humorous, Anakin left the cottage and went to stand outside, under the oak trees, and gather his thoughts.

    It was like he was awake in a dream.

    Could all this be real?

    He shuddered to think he might wake from this, only to find himself back in the darkness of the Imperial Throne world. All of this could just be fading images and the voices nothing more than the longings of some deranged mind, driven to madness by intolerable loss and sinister crimes.

    ?Anakin??

    Great post.

    Where did Yoda get to though. He was there only an hour earlier. Or, is he just off doing something else? He would likely have some ideas about how to heal Anakin.

    I think the first thing they need to do is look into getting some equipment to rig a temporary set-up so Anakin can remove his mask. Otherwise, he wouldn't be able to do anything like eat or drink.

    Tsk, tsk, TJM. ;) Telling the story for me! Haha. :) No, I'm way ahead of you on this one. Don't worry, Yoda and Anakin's condition are all dealt with later on. :D

    MSN? Away, or just ignoring me? ;)

    Great start! Gave me all those nice fuzzy feelings that Obi and Ani give me when they're getting along.

    Great start -and brave start! :D Just exactly where the previous story ended. Not easy to find way back to the rhythm, the feeling ... but you did very-very well!

    I enjoyed the characterization! There's no surprise that Anakin is a bit unstable emotionally- still, you can feel the strength behind his words ... ;) I don't really know why but I have the feeling that sooner or later he'll be OK :D ;)

    And Kenobi's characterization was awesome!!! He's trying very hard to really believe what just happened, he's trying to make things right though hasn't got any idea how (he has no instructions from the Council ;) ) Still, a line from ANH novel came to my mind... GL writes just before the duel, when Kenobi and Vader meet again after several years:"[Kenobi] gave the impression of being more curious than impressed".

    :D More? :D

    Aw, great post, Casliadear! I love Anakin/Obi-Wan interaction! Their relationship is just so interesting! *Kee jumps up and down* And you write it so well...

    Yoda...hm, what about killing him? Now, wouldn't that be FUN?!? *refuses to look at the rest of the readers, and especially at TJM* Well, I think it would be fun.

    More?

    Hey, thanks everyone! I'm glad you like it! :D I'll have a new post up soon. And since this was a Obi/Anakin one, we'll have a Ami/Ani scene next.

    Also, since no one really knows about Ep. III, I didn't think it would hurt to sorta fill in the blanks. So there are a few references in the next couple of posts, as well as later some flashes of the Jedi Purge. Any ways, just so you know, this is Spoiler Free and these are all my own ideas.

    (And, Kee, as...entertaining as you might find Yoda's dead ;) I feel it's best to simply prove his logic is at times faulty. It doesn't offend other readers *winks at TJM* and we have a DOUBLE layer of guilt, both Yoda's AND Anakin's. [face_devil] And we all knows that's what we're REALLY here for. ;) )

    :D More soon! :D
