    Hello all,
    This is my first fanfic posting, please be
    kind! I know that there may be spelling
    errors, what can I say?! This story takes
    place 8 years after TPM....when Ani and Ami
    are all grown up. It is rated PG13, for
    some suggestive language. Nothing too racy!

    And on to the story!

    Starlight: Prologue
    By: Marie


    She reached for him, pulling him closer to her warmth. The sky had
    long since grown dark, as the sun bid farewell and travelled on her merry
    way. Above them now, only stars. Millions of tiny sparkles, some inhabited,
    some mysterious and uncharted. Alone in the gardens, Padmé Naberrie
    and Anakin Skywalker, kissed with abandon.

    They kissed for every day they'd spent apart. They kissed for every
    missed opportunity to be together when the sun rose. Most of all,
    they kissed for the sheer joy of doing so.

    While her heart was regarded by most as filled only with regard
    for her people and duty, those close to her new better; She had an
    enormous capacity to love.

    Starlight 1/2
    Padmé

    The stars above taunt me now. Any one of them may erupt in turmoil
    at any moment, taking my love away. They hold the power here, not I.
    Not we; Anakin and I. Anakin tells me that I spend too much time thinking
    about the times he is not with me, that I don't appreciate when he *is* here.

    Spoil sport.

    How can I not miss his gentle comfort? His...strong arms around me
    when the sun fliters, unbidden, through the windows. No, I must miss
    him. I must. Gasping for air now, I pull away from my love with a smile.
    "Kiss me like that and we may never get up to my room, Jedi."

    I'm rewarded with a groan. Score one of the Queen. He gently rolls me onto
    my back, resting his head on my chest. "Passion, a Jedi craves not these
    things," He comments, lightly. Yet, in the dark, solitary confines of my
    bedroom, I have seen a passion in him rivaling that of the suns intensity.
    He is right, though. More than once we have been subjected to Master
    Obi-Wan's safe-sex speaches. I wonder what he would say if I were
    to tell him that sex with Anakin is anything but safe.

    More than once we have been sent spiraling around the room,
    as Anakin's....excitement....got the best of him.

    "Passion, a Jedi receives however," I add, tugging lightly on his padawan
    braid. He squeals and gives me a look of mock indignation. "No abusing
    the braid, fair Queen. I will not have you-"

    "You will not have me what? Leading you around by the braid?"
    I challange him, pure mirth in my eyes. I love to play with him this way,
    we make a cute couple. At least, that's what Obi-Wan called us.

    He chuckles, reading my thoughts. I hate it when he does that.
    "I know you hate it, but gimmie a break. How else I am supposed to
    know what's going on in that pretty head of yours?" He is giving
    me such a look, and all at once I am taken back to the moment we
    first met.

    *Are you an angel?*

    "What happened to that little boy who tried to pick me up when
    he was 9?" I wonder aloud. Yes, at 22, I am making quite the specticale
    of myself running around with a 17 year old Jedi. Let me catch me caring,
    really.

    He sits up, pouting. "I did not try to pick you up, Pad. Besides, you're no
    less beautiful now than you were then. All prim and proper, making us
    believe you were *Just a handmaiden*," He tries his best to imitate me.

    "Jedi, Jedi. When are you going to learn that you entered my heart
    that day? Perhaps not the same way you are today, but you were always
    there." That is true, and he knows it. Why are we even talking about
    this now? "Let's not spend our time opening old story books, get over
    here and kiss me."

    He smiles at me like I'm his next meal.

    I won't hold it against him. I will, however, continue my hate for the
    stars above.

    This is what life should be. This quiet, easy existence. Not that the
    life of a Jedi is without its rewards. For the most part, those rewards tend

    Hi there!

    I like this. Aw, heck, I love this! It's short, it's sweet, and FOR ONCE, it's not a love triangle sort of thing! Listen, I've just started a webpage and am looking for some fanfic to go on it other than my own...would you mind sending this to me so I can put it up there? Let me know. Thanks.

    MTFBYWA,

    That was absolutely fabulous, Marie D Padawannabe! I love Ani/Ami fan-fic. This was very sweet.

    Do you have any other stories? I'd love to read them!


    taramidala: Have you read "What if Anakin Skywalker was the Same Age as Queen Amidala"? You should also check out http://www.geocities.com/anakin_and_amidala/anakinamidala.htmthis site .

    YESSSSSSS!!! More Ani/Ami stuff!! *sigh* That was beautiful, Marie. Extraordinary. And on Valentine's Day too (more or less)....

    Hehe, thanks for taking care of my shameless plug, a-p! Um, Marie, would you mind if I put this story up on my site? (The link to it's in ami-padme's post.) I've been looking for some good A/A stuff to put up on it, and I'd dearly love to add this to the small collection there...

    (Yes, I should be working. But I stopped by and saw the 'Amidala/Anakin' fanfic in the title and HAD to read it!! )

    Marie, I'll try to add the story sometime tomorrow. If I don't, it'll be by this weekend, I promise.

    The URL is in my profile, so feel free to check out the page and connected sites before then.

    a-p, do you mind if I put a link up to that page? It looks great! I really love the layout.

    Allrighty, I'm tired. Time to go to bed. 10am classes. Grr!

    MTFBWYA,
    Taramidala

    P.S. Marie, do you mind if I edit some of the typos / spelling errors that you have? It'll just make things look a lot cleaner.

    Actually, taramidala, that's *my* website... but of course I'd be honored if you linked to it. Glad you like it.

    [[Edit: Grr, I should have known a-p would beat me to it...]]

    Of course a-p, the offer's still open if you want to write one of those essays you were bugging me about... And I'll get back to work when I darn well feel like it... I'm free from any fanfic obligations for awhile! hehe.

    Whoa...

    I don't know who to respond to first!

    Alderaan....feel free to post it at your site. It is quite lovely..!

    a-p....This is my first real SW story. I used to write X-Files fanfic, but jumped
    ship a while ago. I do plan on writing
    more...so we'll see what happens!

    Who'd I forget?? SIGH. OH! Taramidala:
    Feel free to edit away...this was written
    tonight at work, on an old windows3.1 puter
    that had NO spell check. SIGH.

    Anyway, I just LOVE Anakin and Amidala,
    they are too cute for words!

    That's your site, A21? Boy, I feel silly writing as if I didn't know you... and you linked to VM -- well, that'll teach me to surf really late at night! Sleepsurfing: don't try it at home.

    Excellent site.

    And great story, Marie!

    In light of Jane Jinn's revelation regarding another fan site, I just wanted to let you all know that my site is NOT like that. While eventually, I may consider something with a higher rating than PG-13, I will NOT be posting slash fic on my site. Just FYI.

    I agree, they're toooo cute together! I once saw this T-shirt at the mall with the two of them together on the eopie, and I didn't buy it! I should have, it was such a pretty shirt. Adorable as all get out.

    Thanks, Gala. Umm... writing as if you don't know me? What do you mean? (Forgive me if that's a really dumb question...) And of course I had to link to VM... I am a 'Vader chick' of sorts after all, and present for the initial 'conception' of the site. That, and I just plain like it! Oh BTW, while I'm still fishing for stories: would you mind if I put 'Last Encounters' and 'First Encounters' on my site too? I've been meaning to ask you that for a while.

    Um, tara, the link to your site's not working...

    A21, hmmm. I wrote to the address you link to, with the Encounters stories attached (along with Outer Rim, and the Penitent link). Yes, of course you can have them, and format them in the way that you want for your site. I'll switch the VM link from fanfiction.net to Iego (I can't justify putting almost-purely Amidala stories on VM). If you haven't gotten them by tonight, let me know. They haven't come back to me.

    Excellent writing, my fellow Arizonan! I'd love to see more. There aren't many Ami/Ani fanfics out there, and it's great to see a new one. Keep up the great work!

    Heh... I asked that question *before* I checked my email, which would have answered my question. Doi! Thanks for the stories. I received them perfectly okay, and they're on the verge of being put up.

    DP! Been a while.

    Now, I must tear myself away from the monitor... the biology book is beckoning me towards it, unwillingly, but I must comply... it demands to be studied and can be delayed no longer.

    As she steps into the thread her footsteps echo, resonating throughout the chamber. She flashes a quick glance around her. Tentatively she calls out -

    Hello?

    There is no response.

    ::Sigh:: Oh well. Might as well up the thread.

    Hard to know what to put on a thread after the story is over. I guess we could all have a long talk about how rare nice Amidala/Anakin romances are! Weird, considering that this particular romance is the root of all good in the SW universe...

    Hey, have we heard from Marie herself lately?

    I believe she's writing in her "What if Obi-Wan and Amidala were the same age...?" fanfic. Ah well.

    I agree about how rare they are-- but a romance people generally want to have a happy ending, and Anakin & Amidala's doesn't appear to-- so I suppose it's only natural people would possibly want her with someone else, who she might have been happier with, hence all the (ick) Obi fics. But, I'd just as soon her true love be the man she married, and have their marriage be the symbol of all that's pure and good in the SW universe. I've never liked triangles anyway. And aside from my site and on SW Chicks, I've seen very few Ani/Ami romances.... mad.gif And the few I do see, they're some of my faves.

    Why would she be happy with Obi-Wan, for heaven's sake? He has no clue about normal human feelings -- he tells Luke that committing patricide is his only hope, for crying out loud! And, to top it off, he's always convinced he's right, and he almost never actually is. I almost think I'd be happier with Vader, let alone Anakin.

    mad.gif Just not an Obi fan here. Haven't been since that "from a certain point of view" speech.

    At any rate, I always preferred Romeo and Juliet to nearly any other kind of love story. Hardly a happy ending. There's something in the tragedy itself that's compelling.

    BTW, I stuck my http://members.aol.com/fernwithy/vadersmask/midnightsdepth.htmlpoem up at my site, though I don't have a link to it from the Mask. It's Ani/Ami, for those who like that sort of thing. But, as I said while shamelessly quoting myself up in in "Random Symbols," lord knows I'm no Shakespeare.

    Shakespeare or not, I liked the poem, JG. I'm personally so bad at writing poetry that I really appreciate those who can do a good job at it.

    BTW, Ami won't be happy with Obi-Wan either. They'll at least be separated by the end of Ep. III (him on Tatooine and her on Alderaan). So, the question stands: there should be a triangle because...?
