    *stumbles in, clutching some papers* So....sorry...here's....lots more *holds out the papers, then collapses from exhaustion into a beanbag chair and drifts to sleep, murmuring* It's all Darth Real Life's fault.....he's holding me back....

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    People were already lined up on the streets, waiting for the Parade. When Rabé had glanced out of her window last night, she had actually seen a few people camping out for the night just to get good spots. She thought this was ridiculous, but by the time they left Padmé?s suite that morning, the crowd was already six people deep. She was sure that before they exited the Palace the sidewalks would be packed with people, from the string of guards lining the street to the buildings behind.

    It had been suggested to Padmé that she ride down the Parade route in a speeder, but she had declined, declaring that sitting there and waving to the crowds left and right would make her feel more like a beauty pageant queen than a down-to-earth queen. It was decided then that she would wait at the end of the Parade route, the front of the Palace, for Boss Nass and Jar Jar Binks.

    Queen Amidala and her entrouge of nobles, officials, Jedi, family and friends gathered in the large entrance hall of the Palace, waiting for the appropriate time to walk out onto the steps. Rabé spied a man and a woman, along with a girl a few year older than her, quickly give Padmé a hug and kiss before striking up a conversation with Sio Bibble. Rabé was convinced that this was Padmé?s family, though she had never seen them before. Indeed, the girl looked like Padmé probably would in a few years.

    Alfed -- Rabé had to grin when she saw the elderly man, stately and composed as he always was -- cleared his throat to silence the murmuring crowd. All eyes turned to him expectantly, waiting for his directions.

    ?Your Highness, ladies and gentlemen,? Alfed projected clearly through the echoing hall. ?If you will be so kind as to follow me, the Parade is about to start.?

    He led them through the large double doors held open by two servants, out of the Palace and down the steps. Padmé was at the head of the group, Panaka at her side and just a step behind, and the handmaidens flanking him tightly as the rest of the group stayed close at their heels. A tremendous roar erupted from the crowd at the sight of their beloved queen. The air instantly snowed confetti, and the sidewalks churned with swirling streamers. Padmé smiled broadly and ventured a small, quick wave, inciting the crowd into an even more crazed fervor. Rabé herself was grinning, and she heard Yané laugh lightly.

    The Parade had already started an hour before at the city?s gates. Padmé?s exit from the Palace had been timed so she would arrive just minutes before the procession itself. Already Rabé could hear faint strains of music. The handmaidens, nobles, and Jedi all lined up behind Padmé. Rabé took her place behind Sio Bibble, whose plump frame was surrounded by a soft, shifting glow radiated from the Globe of Peace he held in his hands.

    The crowd subdued slightly, and an eager anticipation settled on the streets in hushed silence. Rabé trembled. It had taken a week for the full impact of everything to settle on her. It had all happened so fast that she scarcely had had time to think. Now, as she thought back, she realized what a miracle had occurred and what a tremendous fate of what seemed like an inevitable fate of suffering and despair they had escaped.

    The whine of straighter engines grew steadily louder until Rabé was tempted to stuff her fingers in her ears. Four Naboo starfighters shot overhead. The crowd cheered again, but their voices were overpowered. Then the engine roar finally receded, the Parade was upon them.

    The Royal Naboo Ensemble came first, a group of a hundred men and women playing various instruments as proud junior members carried flags bearing the royal insignia. They played a well known victory balled,
