    Wondeful job. :)

    I love Qui-Gon/Anakin stuff. We only got to see them briefly in TPM, but they really seemed to share a special relationship.

    Well done, Pipes.

    That was great! Qui-Gon is the coolest Jedi ever to be, except Ani, of course. Now I just wait for Obi to appear...

    *sigh* This story is soooo good!

    That meeting just about gave me the sniffles. But the image of Ani, still dressed as Vader, running to hug Qui-gon was kind of funny!

    The next thing Anakin knew he was kneeling face down back in the swamps of Dagobah. He was face down but he knew he was no longer surrounded by the white light or in the dark cave. He could feel the life around him and hear the creatures of the planet. He rose to his feet and opened his eyes.

    His unconcealed eyes saw Dagobah in all his glory. Suddenly, he realizaed he was not looking through his eye-plates. He was seeing the swamp world with his own eyes. He looked down at his body and found that he was no longer dressed in the black armor that had kept him alive. He was now dressed in the robes of a Jedi Knight.

    Anakin was shocked. He quickly looked at his now unconcealed hands and found healthy, vibrant skin on it. He ran his hands over his arms and his legs. It was flesh and blood. He pinched his arms to check if it was real and felt the small stab of pain. He could know feel the muscles and the ligiments in his legs as he lifted them off the ground and flexed them. No longer were they the mechanical attachments that had been put on him after his body was destroyed. They were his real limbs.

    His hands quickly fell to his chest. No attachments, no control pack to moniter his breathing. His hands crawled up to his neck. No machine was there to aid him in his breathing.

    Finally, and slowly, his hands fell on his face. He rubbed his hands on them. His face was unscrared. He couldn't feel any on the disfigurements that formed when he fell inton the volcano. He ran his hands up higher and felt his head. It was no longer the bald, scarred, and shiveled head it had once been. It was now home to a full crop of hair.

    Joy began to fill up in Anakin. Had it really happened? Was he really...

    No. No, there was one thing he had to check first. Only if he saw his reflection would he believe this to be possible.

    He headed to a murky pool of water. He looked down in the fog-filled water. The fog began to clear and before long he got a look at his face.

    The image he saw was of a heathly, vibrant man of forty-five years of age. He saw the piercing blue eyes and the short, brown hair. He saw the face of a man who had once again come home. He saw the face of Anakin Skywalker, Jedi Knight.

    Anakin looked up from his reflection. A small smile broke out on his face. It had happened. He had been healed.

    Anakin found himself breaking out into laughter. He didn't know what was so funny. But he was laughing. It was a loud, healthy laugh...something he never would have been able to do confined in the Vader armor. The joy he felt was indescriable. He truly felt as if he had been reborn.

    He continued laughing for several minutes. He was so happy. The only things that could bring him so much happiness was his children and...

    Amidala!

    Anakin's mind snapped alert as he thought of his wife. His body was healed now. He just hoped that he could now find his wife.

    Anakin looked up into the sky. She was out there. It was time to find out where.

    Anakin closed his eyes and relaxed his mind. He reached out with the Force. He had been unable to locate Amidala before, his mind always seemed to be clouded. Anakin now knew that it was because of the darkness within him.

    But that darkness was gone now. Now, Anakin could reach out with the Force unobstructed by anything. He could feel his very soul connected to the Force and to the galaxy.

    He searched space and time for Amidala. He searched from planet to planet, simply by using his mind. She hadn't been able to find her yet but now he knew she was close. She was somewhere out there.

    His mind continued to search until finally he found his answer. His mind came across the world Dantooine. He was familiar with Dantooine. He had visited the world before when he was Obi-Wan's padawan. At one time, the planet also was the home base for the rebel alliance. They had long since moved on but it still remained a stronghold for rebel sympathizers.

    His mind entered the world and began searching the very landscap

    Marvelous, simply marvelous. However, these posts are very addictive and I find that I am requiring more frequent doses of them...(hint, hint).

    no, it's better than great, a lot better!!!

    Angel of Naboo and I are beginning a fanfic called Redemption of Evil. I'd like you to come and take a look. It can't be better than this, but I think it'll be good.

    That was wonderful! I wonder what Luke and Leia's reaction to him will be. And for that matter, Amidala's
