[link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=3657335]The True Order[/link] I started this with every intention of doing it by myself, but I'm finding that the whole story just isn't in my head. I have one more scene and two more flashbacks planned, but I have no idea where the whole story is going. The basic gist of the AU setup is that Anakin had nightmares about Vader as a child in the Temple, and ended up leaving his training after only a couple of years. He went first to Naboo, where he stayed a year with Padme, while she worked to end slavery on Tatooine, then got impatient and decided to go back and race for Shmi's freedom. Instead, he loses the race and his own freedom. All the while, Obi-Wan is trying to get him to come back to his training, but he refuses, believing that he will be the doom of the Jedi. Unfortunately, Palpatine is able to work without him, and launches an offensive which is cutting through the Jedi quite efficiently, until Obi-Wan leads a resistance and kills Palpatine in a fit of rage. After that, Obi-Wan -- though never calling himself Sith -- becomes mired in Dark Side emotions. He is also the head of the Jedi Order. He believes that Anakin would have stopped the purge if he'd stayed, and pursues a grudge against the Skywalker family, eventually killing Anakin and imprisoning Amidala, leaving the twins alone as Watto's slaves. Phew. That's where the story starts. So far, Amidala has escaped and Leia has started a slave uprising.
