Cool, another robotic leg, I love it. But I thought the rest of the post was slightly monotonous.
Poor Leia well hopefully they can help with the leg issue.
Can't wait for them to reach Coruscant!
I do believe Mon Mothma is trying to flirt. ..
Great Story so far, i love it.
And please send me all pm's, Thanks
Still waiting to see what happens between Han and Leia
Mon Mothma and Piett. Well, I have seen stranger pairings...wait, no, I don't think I have
Poor Leia, but unfortunately that's the way these things turn out when it comes to lightsabres, the wound is instantly cauterized that is it. Which, children, is why you shold never play with lightsabres. Nope never!
I sense geat changes in the glaxay in the next few days!
jacen200015>No darkside Luke. Palpy will have dark followers....and wants to turn someone else. Someone named K.K. (no more spoilers)
Jeditheskyisblue>She will get used to the new leg.
Senator_Leia73>Again, she won't notice the difference in some time.
Solo_Fan>Well, to get Palpy stay dead, you need to also destroy his clones. And about the Vader costume....read this chapter.
Darth-Mithrandir>Sorry, but the big action is over for now.
Kynstar>She will get used to it.
maramijade>Since she not longer had the resposibility for a Rebellion, she obviously thinks that she can finally take some liberties.
Winter6>Hope you got the PM-chapters.
Kazzy>Great changes indeed. And the Empire will never be the same as before.
First let Obi-Wan meet an old friend.....then let's wait for the extended family.
Obi-Wan finally found that part of the city he was a regular visitor of over nineteen years ago. He just wondered if his old friend was still there. While he walked down the road, he looked to the skyline. The old temple was still there, but it was a ruin. Left there by Palpatine to gloat over the fallen Jedi. No, Obi-Wan did not want to go back there; he had too many bad memories of the slaughter that had happened there. The best was to finally lay the temple to rest by tearing it down and use the ground for a new, much more humble temple.
Then he thought about what had transpired in the last two hours. Amidala's call to her family was obviously one of the hardest things in her life. Her family was quite shocked when she had told them who Anakin was all these years, and at once her father had literally grilled her to tell him everything she had not told and what exactly had happened.
It had taken her nearly a hour, before the family finally had accepted that Anakin could be no longer evil. The real bomb was of course, what her father then said. They would ALL come to Coruscant. Obi-Wan suspected, that the old man not only wanted the family united, but also to give Anakin the 5th degree about his time as Vader before welcoming him back to the family.
Obi-Wan himself was also surprised. Because he had called, SabÃ¨ had insisted at the end of their talk that she and Andre would join the Naberries on their transport to Coruscant. She did not want to wait any longer, and wanted Andre to finally meet his father. Obi-Wan hoped that his son would be as eager to meet him as well.
Red Leader's call to Panaka had resulted in him coming too, wanting to meet Amidala again, and escorting her family while on the way to Coruscant. They also finally heard Red Leader's real name, Rick XantrÃ¨. But he had insisted that they please still call him by his nickname.
Finally Obi-Wan arrived at the small building. It was exactly as he remembered it. The still dirty metal covering of the walls, the cheap neon signs in the windows and the old-fashioned glass windows. That was definitely the place. Even the sign announcing 'Dex' Dinner' was still the same. It was already night, but if Dex was still working his usual hours, he wouldn't close until midnight, which was still an hour to go.
The dinner was empty when Obi-Wan entered, even the service droids were already shut off. But there was light in the kitchen, and he heard someone working there. "Oh a customer! A moment please, I'm there in a second!" That was definitely Dex. "Well, what can I serve you...." Dex went though the kitchen door, and stopped, when he saw the man in Jedi robes standing there. "Obi-Wan!" Obi-Wan felt crushed, when the giant, four-armed alien jumped right in front of him, and hugged him. "I thought you are dead!"
"Dex...could you please let go of me? Otherwise...I think I could die for real soon."
"Oops. Sorry old chap!" Dex let go of him. That an old friend suddenly showed up again, very alive, wasn't something he saw every day. "Man, Obi-Wan! How does it happen that you are now her
Ahhh Dex!! Hehehehe squishing Obi to death might not be a good thing hehehe
Great chappie! The meeting is soon to come! Anxiety and excitement reigns in the air at the moment I bet!
Great Chapter. Will be interesting to see the whole family, all together again. Looking forward to more!!
I agree about the Dex comment it was good to that he was alive. Come on Han having Darth Vader as a almost Father in Law hasn't to be harder then meeting Leia's grandparents right? lol
I do believe this will be one of the biggest Skywalker/Amidala family reunions ever. Hopefully, a dynasty is building that will help bring peace to the galaxy. It would be nice if the Skywalker family could have a couple of years to meddle in PTAs and school sports.
Sorry to be away so long, holiday's and a death in my family kept me away from the boards longer than ever.
I have enjoyed catching up though.
I'm really anxious to see the reunion between Obi-Wan and Sabe'.
(I will write PM's now.)
Thanks for the PM.
Finally the transport had landed and the ramp lowered.
to be continued...
And next time:
The family meeting.
You just had to stop there didn't you? Blah, it's like watching an awesome movie that's just got to the part that's gonna make you all happy and giddy after a slew of angst and the commerical comes on.
I can't wait to see what happens next.
Sorry so late for replying, got to read most of this at work, but had to leave for lunch in the middle of it.
Yeah!! Dex is still around for some reason I really like him.
Looking forward to Anakin getting his ears boxed by Padme's dad
Yes!!! You put Dex in! I thought that you would put him but I had also hoped that it would have been a Jedi.
Aww maaannn you had to leave it at the "and the ramp lowered.." part didnt you
Well, things are slowly starting to wrap up - on this story at least!
I'm very curious as to what Obi-Wan's son is going to think of him - and how the Naberries are going to react to Anakin.
So many goodies yet to come!
It will be a while until the next chapter.
It is difficult to write, and long too. Also work is slowing me down since last week. I hope to have it finished at the end of the week.
I sent my beta the last chapters.
So prepare soon for more!
Woo-hoo! Can't wait
Kimberley told me that the conclusion of my fic can be posted Friday, Saturday at the latest.
Kynstar>You can bet!
JediMasterRev>Well, here is it finally.
Jeditheskyisblue>Who knows, read what Ruwee tells them...
Solo_Fan>If you mean with dynsty a royal family, wait for Chapter 77, Anakin has a surprise concerning that.
green_eyes>Obi-Wan will feel flattened, literally...
J_M_Bulldog>I think that is the concept of the cliffhanger.
maramijade>Well, Anakin will get it here.
Senator_Leia73>CLiffhangers are mean, eh?
Kazzy>All you can read now here!
FINALLY! here the second last chapter!
The first one to appear was Panaka, obviously because he still felt he had to protect the family of his former queen and senator. Standing beside the ramp, he waited for the other passengers to emerge from the ship.
They did not have to wait long, and Obi-Wan hadn't seen it coming. One moment he waited for someone to leave the ship, the next he thought that Dex's hug was soft compared to the one he was trapped in now. SabÃ¨ had literally raced out of the ship and, obviously not caring about protocol, thrown herself at him. The twins suppressed a giggle at seeing their master being crushed by a woman smaller than him, while Amidala just smiled warmly. Of course, Obi-Wan had finally told them the big secret when he knew that she and his son would come here.
Finally she decided that the old Jedi was crushed enough. "I think you better release him SabÃ¨, or his head will burst from all this pressure."
"Oh...." Letting go, SabÃ¨ finally seemed to notice the others standing there, and was slightly embarrassed of her behavior. But she had no chance to answer before more people walked down the ramp.
Anakin felt uneasy when the whole Naberrie family, Sola, Darren, Ryoo, Pooja and, in front of all of them, Ruwee walked towards them. Ruwee clearly played the part of the family patriarch at the moment. The way the old man looked at him made him feel like when he was ten years old and one of the teachers in the temple scolded him in front of the whole class for manipulating one of the refreshers. Finally the family stopped in front of them, and Ruwee looked Anakin up and down, obviously trying to connect this middle-aged man to the memory of the young Jedi knight.
"So it was you the entire time. Would have never thought that of you...." Ah, that wasn't good! Ruwee's voice was as cold as ice, and he looked him into the eyes the same way as Obi-Wan did after his padawan had lost another lightsaber. "What do you have to say in your defense?"
"I cannot defend what I have done, nor can I excuse it. Nothing could excuse it; it was wrong. The only thing I can do is to work very hard to seek redemption for what I have done. You have every reason to distrust me and I have to prove to you that you can trust me again." Anakin just hoped that Ruwee would believe him.
Instead of answering him, Ruwee looked to PadmÃ¨. "Does he really mean it?"
"Yes, absolutely! He has proven his most faithful promise to me. I would put my hand into the fire for him!" Amidala hoped that it would convince her father, but his coldness seemed to be more an act to test Anakin.
Ruwee looked to the twins. They hesitated before they answered. "My father has proven to me that he really wants to redeem himself for his previous wrongdoings. I trust him." said Luke.
"There was a time not long ago where I would have wished him dead. But now I have faith in him, that he will transform the Empire into something better." said Leia.
Ruwee suddenly took Anakin's hand, his expression suddenly no longer cold but warm and hopeful. Obviously it really was only an act to test if Anakin had really changed. "I'm so glad that you have chosen this way, son. Most would have thought that you were lost forever. But you have proven that you are a man of great character to come back from where you were. And that gives me hope for the future."
He then turned his attention to PadmÃ¨, and hugged
Awesome post. Like how Ruwee gave Anakin the brief cold shoulder before welcoming him back. Found the scene with Obi-Wan and his son especially touching. Can't wait to see the coronation of the new Emperor. Awesome!!
Pushing this up.
Well, I should tell you some things while I wait for replies to my newest chapter.
-It will be a while before I start the sequel, because I have an other writing project at this time also, and it uses much of my time.
-The next chapter is the last one, including the Epilouge of the story, the teaser for the sequel.
-Maybe I will try to put this into the fanfic-archive of theforce.
And now I hope that finally someone can tell me if I have done a good job with this chapter......
twas great....really good..waiting..for finale!!!!!!
