    Impressive cast list, Darth!
    And images, too!

    I've just got a little question: How come you didn't include in your cast list the characters of Admiral Piett and General Maximilian Veers?
    I mean, I know they're Empire, but I get the feeling they were the only beings in that perverted system who had even a bit of a sense of honor. And they were loyal to Vader, so why not have them be friends of Anakin in your fic? Maybe in your Ep. VI?

    Just a tiny suggestion on my part...

    MTFBWY,

    Love the press release! [face_laugh]

    Thanks for keeping Harrison and Hayden around [face_love]...maybe you can squeeze Ewan in a surprise cameo/flashback appearance.

    Lex: Finally caught up, my friend--and I love this story. The family scenes are just sweet. (Oh, what might have been... [face_love] Me in Episode III: "Anakin, Anakin...NOOOOO!!! :_| ) Can't wait to see what's going to happen with our couples: Anakin/Padme, Han/Leia, Bryon/Sarre...and Luke with his Mrs. Robinson-like crush...poor kid. :p

    I like the cast list, too. You cast Sean Connery...you ROCK. Plain and simple. :)

    Sarre and Leia in tears though? Mesa not likin' this. :eek:

    Note regarding "Tall Male Sith" in the cast list

    I expected some confusion over this, but I couldn't come up with a better label for the cast list. It's not a new character for HAD; he's already appeared in ADR.

    It's a subtle thing; maybe too subtle. But if you look closely at the Sith scenes in ADR, you'll see that there are three male Sith in ADR and only two are named. (Well, four and three, respectively, if you count Oga Trill/Darth Malus at the very end.)

    It's easiest to see at the Sith Council in chapter 8. There are two male Sith in attendance, only one of whose name is spoken (Barbarus). The absent, soon-to-be-deceased male Sith is mentioned as well (Nefarious). The third's name is never revealed.

    Similarly, in chapter 16 when Vengous announces that Trill has become Malus, there are two men with her. One (by implication) is Barbarus. The other can't be Nefarious (dead) or Malus (inside the room) -- he's the name-withheld Tall Male Sith.

    You'll find out who he is in HAD... [face_devil]

    ******************

    geo3: [face_blush] Thanks!
    GunraysLawyer: Glad you like the Jenny casting! Dare ya to tell me that I'm wrong You're wrong. :eek: :D See note above.
    Monica: If you're anxious now, wait until it starts. :p
    Lando_Plenty: How cool would it be to have Sean Connery in SW? I know! I couldn't pass it up! :D The Sith and Sarre took a lot of thought, so I'm glad you liked the results. ;)
    JediArwen: a Mara not raised by the Walking Corpse [face_laugh] I am pleased with this too I'll take what I can get! :) Orlando as himself or looking as Legolas? Not like Legolas, sorry. :( There are no long-haired hippies and/or elves in the Republic Special Forces. :p Maybe closer to Will Turner (from Pirates of the Carribbean), and probably not as close-shaven as the image I linked to. Interesting to see Oldman as one of the good guys Yep! I'm letting him be a good guy for once! :)
    FAB: Connery, Law, Anderson, and Danes -- you're welcome! :cool: Now, if only you had given David Duchovny a role then wowsers....my life would be complete! Believe me, I thought about it! ;) As you can see, the Sith are all young, so he can't be one of them. Perhaps I'll have him be a Senator or a military commander in Episode VI.
    FAB & GunraysLawyer: Ummm...can you make sure you have some U2 on the soundtrack to this Lex? Ummm- Seconded. What is this, Moulin Rouge? :p [face_laugh] The soundtrack is all John Williams. Sorry. :(
    PhoenixMage: I'm glad it's helping you picture the characters! It's helping me imagine them and write them, too. :D
    laure: I have a list of canon characters who might make cameos. Dodonna, for example, has appeared by name. He and Madine appear in person in HAD. Aside from Piett and Veers, there are others like Ackbar and Mothma that I'm thinking about too. But mostly I'm using OCs (both in the military and the Senate) just to keep the AU feel of it. And because it's fun to make people up. :p
    MissPadme: Glad the press release made you laugh. ;) As for Ewan -- yeah, he can't be anyone but Obi-Wan, so it'd have to be a flashback, I guess. Unless I take page from the EU and have a cloned Kenobi! (Hmm. Oobii-Waan Keenoobii. I like it! [face_laugh])
    C3SoloPO: *bows* Thank you! :) So glad you liked the Brendan choice. [face_love] When we were throwing around names, he was obvious as soon as we thought of him. ;)
    anakin_girl: Well, don't get attached to those family scenes; there aren't many in HAD. :( Can't wait to see what's going to happen with our couples I'll try to keep you guessing. [face_mischief] You cast Sean Connery... you ROCK. :cool: Sarre and Leia in tears though? Mesa not likin' this. To quote our dear friend geo3 -- I couldn't possibly comment. [face_devil]
    Anakinisthechosenone: Great to have you back! :D No promises about Anakin, sorry. [face_mischief]
    illuminatrix: We all like the Rickman in this house! He was another of those actors that took me a while to think of, but when I did, I s

    Only one thing, Lex:

    If you make Anakin turn to the Dark Side or if you kill Bryon, I will sooo go Misery on you. ;)

    maramijade: Welcome! :D I'm just delighted that you enjoyed ADR so much, and I hope you find HAD equally entertaining. ;)
    anakin_girl: Hmm. So I can avoid your wrath if, for example, I turn Luke to the dark side and kill Danae? [face_devil] [face_devil] I'll keep that in mind. [face_mischief] [face_mischief]


    Just a little reminder that Missing Scenes # 1-2 will be posted tomorrow and # 3 will be PMed to those of age who've requested it. See you then! :D :D

    I was away on vacation, but now I'm back and all caught up! Great posts and I can't wait for the deleted scenes and beginning of Hope and Darkness. The ending of ADR was wonderful. It was an amazing ending for this amazing fic.

    August 11th better come soon. The teaser trailer for HAD was awesome. I just hope I'm not away on vacation on the 11th. I think I'm going to have to check my calendar. :D

    It was fun reading the cast list. You had some great actors/actresses for the characters. Thanks for the images. Orlando Bloom is in this fic! Hayden and Orlando are [face_love]. Although Anakin is older in this so he won't look as good. :( Orlando looked good as Will Turner, better than he does in real life and as Legolas. Good choice Darth_Lex.

    Okay, everyone! It's time for the first set of Missing Scenes for ADR! :D :D

    Missing Scene # 1 is dedicated to C3SoloPO. I never imagined I'd find a Luke/Jenny 'shipper -- especially not one so insistent! ;) Sorry to have disappointed you in the end, but here's the moment of glory. :cool:

    ***********************************
    Missing Scene # 1: Shouldn?t Have Done That (Chapter 13)

    Author?s Commentary: The Luke/Jenny subplot was designed as a red herring from the start. One aspect of the AU Jedi Padawan personality I?ve created for Luke is the ?Heartbreaker? moniker, which is based partly on his string of romantic disasters in the EU and partly on a parallel to his father?s path in ?A Bumpier Road.? Jenny became the obvious inappropriate romantic foil for Luke. As the story wound down, I wanted to keep the readers guessing about Luke and Jenny without giving stronger signals than were warranted. So in the story?s main text I decided to leave only hints and ambiguities until the final Luke/Mara scene of chapter 16.

    This is a perfect Missing Scene ? it would have been overly distracting in the main story, but it?s fun as an extra afterwards.


    Luke pulled off his helmet and sat for a moment in the cockpit of his X-Wing, now docked again in the main hangar bay of the Invictus. The battle was over. The Republic had won. His father had shot down the Sith ace. Although four Jedi in Red Squadron had been killed, those close to him had survived. And it was his attack on the bridge of the Hand of Justice that had made the difference for everyone.

    It was the first time in his life his accomplishment overshadowed his father?s.

    He took a deep breath and tapped the button to raise the transparisteel canopy, pushed off from the sides, and swung his legs around to the boarding ladder. He heard the shouts before he reached the bottom.

    ?Luke! Luke!?

    He dropped gently to the floor and turned around. His mother, Sarré, and Jenny were rushing toward him through the crowded hangar. They were smiling broadly and wiping their eyes as they ran.

    Padmé got to him first. She slammed him into a rough embrace. ?Oh, Luke. Luke. Oh, Luke.?

    ?It?s okay, Mom,? he said quietly. ?I?m fine. I?m fine.?

    ?I know,? she sighed. ?I was so scared. I thought you??

    ?But I didn?t, Mom. I?m here.? He hugged her firmly and stepped back. ?It?s over.?

    ?For now, it is,? his mother smiled. Then she laughed. ?Right now, I need to go find Leia. I need to have a talk with her about her recklessness.?

    As she departed, Luke raised his eyebrows at Sarré. ?What did she do now??

    Sarré hugged Luke too. ?I?ll tell you later,? she chuckled.

    ?Okay.?

    Sarré met his eyes. ?Thank you, Luke. Thank you for saving all of us.?

    ?You?re welcome.? It felt so strange to hear her say that. No one ever had thanked him for doing his duty before. Sarré jogged off to catch Padmé, and he realized Jenny was standing in front of him and crying. ?What?s wrong??

    ?I was? I was?? She reached up and wiped her eyes with the back of her hand. ?I was so scared I was going to lose you.?

    Her phrasing caught his attention immediately. ?Well, I?m fine,? he said curiously, trying to read her emotions in the Force.

    ?I don?t want to lose you,? she said again as she stepped into him, wrapping her arms around his back and resting her head against his chest.

    Luke put his hands on her back and ran them slowly up and down reassuringly. He could feel the heat of her skin through the soft fabric of her light blue flight suit, and it sent shivers of excitement down his spine.

    Jenny?s hands began to move on his back too, and it was

    Great missing scenes. Author's commentary and all!
    The Luke/Jenny scene was very nice. I'm not sure what I prefer now - Luke/Jenny or Luke/Mara. :eek:

    The Luke/Leia scene - an ideal missing scene. And Ralli, well, she?s a resilient girl. Poor Ralli. :p

    And of course the A/P scene was just awesome.

    Wow, those scenes were fantastic! :D

    I loved the conversation between Luke and Leia (It's funny how they both have romantic issues at the same time! :p :)), and the scene with Luke and Jenny really does show that Luke does indeed break hearts.

    I can't wait for the other two! :D

    Drat, I'll have to wait to read the next missing scenes. Oh well. I'm going to be enjoying my vacation instead. :)

    Ah, Luke:
    ?I love you.?
    He swallowed hard. ?I? I?? Oh, dear, the guy might need a bit more practice- though he is still cute :)

    Sorry for the delay but I was rather busy since I am going on vacation.

    Missing Scene # 1:

    Poor Jenny! :( You are an excellent writer Darth, since you make me feel sorry for her. You know I usually keep my opinion on a person especially if its not a good one ?my husband sometimes accuses me for prejudice and to be honest he is usually right. But you manage to do it. I think she transferred the affection from Anakin ?something she didn?t allow herself to accept or even think- to Luke and she felt guilty for it. The thing I don?t understand its Luke?s feelings. He probably felt for her more like he felt for his mother than a girlfriend. But I think you explain his feelings in the next scene.



    Missing Scene # 2:

    An excellent scene Darth. You give us a lot about both Luke?s and Leia?s feelings and thoughts. I think this scene was necessary for the story. I like the way both the twins rationalise their feelings and understands themselves. Its something that I don?t think I saw in Luke and Leia in OT but its well explained by the different brought up for both of them. Padme raised them more or less and we all know how she can do this. ;)



    Missing Scene # 3:

    Wow! And wow! :eek: [face_blush] [face_love]
    You are getting better and better Darth. If you continue like that I don?t know what to expect for L/M?s PM chapter [face_mischief] that would be later than H/L?s one, I think.

    Can?t wait for the next missing scenes?
