    Skywalker Babies! Do you think Padme and Anakin would have had children after Luke and Leia? If so, how many? Would they all be Mary Sues?



    ...What? It's too close to break for me to think of anything creative :p

    I think that Anakin and Padmé would have wanted a large family - at least, Padmé seemed to and Anakin didn't appear to object. I don't think they'd all be Mary sues *laughs*

    I think if Luke and Leia had grown up in a larger family they'd have turned out differently. Luke's "Farmboy charm" might not have happened - I can totally see him following in daddy's footsteps. ie: confidence, power but with his mother's tempering abilities he'd have had humility - something Anakin had to work hard on.

    Leia on the other hand, would have turned out, in my opinion, similar to how she did in the OT. Her strength of spirit is obviously inherited from her mother - though I'm certain Anakin would have had many a sleeplessnight over her antics growing up once she hit puberty. Would Leia have become politically minded? That's hard to say - I think her mother's influnce would have been greater than her father's and she'd have had a more "refreshing" view of the senate even if she'd been chosen to follow a Jedi's path.


    That's about it ;)

    I honestly think that Anakin would want more children then Padmé, basically because he was an only child but also because he didn?t have a father (besides from Obi-Wan but you know what I mean) and the thought of being a father must be amazing.

    A - ?I think that we should have more children.?

    P ? ?More? How many more??

    A - ?Oh, eh, not so many, one, two?seven??

    P ? ?Seven??


    Or maybe it would be more like the Jesse/Becky conversation in ?Full House?

    P/B - ?See, this twin thing is going great (?) Next time I say we go for triplets.?

    A/J - ?Ah, you might have to go without me on that one.?


    I dunno, but I have no doubt that they would have more kids then Luke and Leia.

    And no, I don?t thin k that they would be Mary Sue?s, well, okay, so I guess that it depends on who comes up with them but?no. no. no. *shakes head* no mary sue?s. I think that they (Just like Luke and Leia is in the movies and books) a great mix of both their parents but still with their own personality.

    So, (Mary) Sue me!: Your dashing original character threatens Anakin and Padme's relationship.

    requirements:
    * To conform to this index's standards, the fic must end with the A/P pairing intact (and preferably with the Sue's ego in utter shambles).
    * Any time period, genre
    * >1,000 words
    * Your OC can be either male or female
    * Your OC must have a better vocabulary than the others, and therefore must say at some point: [ul][li]distrait[/li][li]lubricious[/li][li]eldritch[/li][li]turpitude[/li][/ul]
    helpful aids:
    *[link=http://theaerie.www2.50megs.com/station/test.html]The Mary Sue Litmus test[/link]: This test is fairly forgiving and even the lowest scoring OCs are still obvious Sues, but it will show some common Sue traits.

    Shame on me for not coming into this thread before, but these challenge responses look like great reads and to answer the last topic, I've read several very good fics where Anakin and Padme had kids after Luke and Leia, both here and on FF.N.

    As for the current topic, I'd have to say it's any AOTC scene. I like ROTS as well, but AOTC was the one that I absolutely adored to teh point of memorizing line by line and watching 17+ times, and that goes double for all of the Ani/Ami scenes.

    My favourite scene is the balcony scene during the RotS. Many hate it, but for me it showed exactly their daily life, caught between war and love, young parents waiting for their baby to come. Everything was even more tragic when Anakin got that stupid dream.

    Other? When Padme wakes up in the medcenter, the first thing she says was "Anakin... is he alright?" That just broke my fan heart.

    Fan fiction... I could list thousands.

    I love the ROTS balcony scene as well. [face_love] Everyone laughs at it (yeah, Natalie looks really weird), but to me it was so real. To me, one of the most honest things a man can do in a love scene is just watch the woman he loves. And then some other stuff that happens later. :p

    I also like the dinner scene in AOTC, when Anakin makes the "aggressive negotiations" joke. What can I say, I like silly jokes. :p

    Aww, JadeSolo [:D] !!! It's so good to know that I'm not a weirdo! Many SW fans nearly spit at that scene.

    The only thing I don't understand is how a person can sleep in that nightgown--the one Padme wore during the scene.

    and not leave sleep marks. I've wondered too. ;)

    Hi everyone! I ended up lurking on this thread because I was too distracted to get involved when it started, then too shy when I wasn't distracted. ( [face_laugh] Yes even an oldbie like me gets shy on occasion...). Anyway, I think this thread is great! So pretty and professional looking with the buttons and the index. Superb job, Pallas Athena =D=

    As for the discussion, I think my favourite AP moment in fandom will be the one in your signature. [face_laugh] To me Fern's story will always be the definitive Proposal Scene.

    In the 'canon', my favourite scene is the Padmé Ruminations Scene in RotS. Is there a face_awe icon on ign? Because that's how I feel Everytime I watch that scene. It's a scene that literalizes 'feelings too powerful for words'.

    Okay, lemme get on topic and see if I can?t catch up here?

    Introducing?

    Me! Quill_of_Molliemon!

    ?Not much else to say about that, so let?s move on.

    What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics?

    Hmm, lemme see?

    They just fit together. There is no other female character that I can see Anakin paired with and happy, and there is no other male character that I can see Padmé paired with and happy. Their relationship is interesting and complicated by their chosen careers, not to mention the whole element of the forbidden. Really, what?s not to like about them?

    Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both?

    Definitely both.

    What?s your favorite A/P fic that you?ve read? Why?

    I have to pick one? ?I don?t think I can.

    What fic are you most proud of? Why?

    Heh, not too much to choose from here. I?ll have to go with Misunderstood seeing as that?s the only one that I?ve gotten finished.

    Why do I like it? Because it?s insane and insanely long! :D

    Watching AotC again after seeing RotS (or even remembering it), how do you think not only Anakin and Padmé?s relationship in general but also the portrayal of that relationship has changed? In your opinion which movie is better (A/P-wise)? Why (is one truer, more realistic, more honest, better acted, etc ?)?

    How has their relationship changed between movies? It?s matured some, but with the war thrown in and all the long, tense separations, there are still little problems and patches that need work. If they hadn?t fallen apart (*shakes fist at Palpatine*) I think they would?ve gone the distance and stayed together for the rest of their days and been happy.

    I think both movies portray their relationship fairly realistically. Attack of the Clones has the early awkwardness, strong attraction and infatuation, and Revenge of the Sith has them comfortably together though slightly strained from the war and outside manipulations. As far as the acting goes, I won?t comment since I?m a terrible judge of acting?

    Were Anakin and Padmé destined to be together? The will of the Force? Or was it simply chance? How much of a role did their free will play in starting their relationship? And how much of a role did destiny, chance, and/or free will play in the relationship?s destruction? Was it all meant to be?

    Were they destined for each other? Well, only in the sense that George Lucas decided it. :D

    The Force may have played a role in their coming together, but it was free will that kept them there. When they first met each other, they liked each other. When they met up again, they were attracted to each other, attempted to resist it, and then just went with it. And when things fell apart, it was Anakin?s desperate and impulsive choices that doomed them.

    Destiny/the Force put them in close physical proximity to each other, but it was free will, their own decisions and feelings, that made them a couple.

    Do you think Padmé and Anakin would have had children after Luke and Leia? If so, how many? Would they all be Mary Sues?

    Oh definitely. How many, I can?t say, but at least one or two more. Padmé said she always wanted children (plural!) and Anakin never said no to that idea. And since family is such an important thing to Anakin, it?s easy to see him with a bunch of kids.

    Would they be Mary Sues? Good God, I hope not?

    What's your favorite A/P scene, dialogue exchange, etc? Why?

    Again, I have to pick one? I?m terrible at picking one favorite?

    Meh, I skip this question, there is no one single favorite for me.

    My favorite scene is the scene on the balcony where Anakin kisses Padme for the first time. Besides being very romantic, it showed the love between Anakin and Padme was too much for either of them to resist...for very long.

    Looking forward to the interview with VA_Parky :D

    Swinging her formidable red purse, AnakinsFavorite rushes up to a woman fastidiously typing in an office.

    AnakinsFavorite: I'm sorry I was late! You ready to begin??!

    Tell us a little bit about yourself.

    I?m 29 years old and live in Virginia, as evidenced by my user name. I?m married to my high school sweetheart (5 years in May) and hold him completely responsible for sparking my Star Wars obsession. We don?t have any kids yet, but we do have a very spoiled Westie who thinks she's a baby. When I'm not haunting the Boards, I work as an Executive Assistant.

    I guessed the Virginia part! *pats own back* That is so sweet you married your high school sweetheart. Do you like your job, or do you sometimes feel like Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada?

    For the most part, my job is interesting and challenging, but there are other times where it can get a little The Devil Wears Prada-ish. I don't like those times!

    I don?t think anyone really likes those! So, did you always dream of being an ?Executive Assistant?? Did you ever sit down and think, ?Oh! Being a writer would be nice.?

    I definitely did not dream about being an Executive Assistant, I can assure you! But yes, if I could have any job in the world, being a novelist would top the list.

    Did you write alot growing up? What were your first dabbles about?

    I did write a lot when I was young - mostly my own versions of fairy tales or whatever cartoon/show I was obsessed with at the moment.

    The first 'serious' piece that I wrote (i.e., let anyone else see) was for a creative writing class my senior year in high school. It was a romance set during the Civil War - I actually just saw it the other day when I was reorganizing my closet. (Makes mental note to burn it the next time Mr. VA_Parky builds a fire).

    Anyway, my schedule was really hectic throughout college (I played soccer in addition to being a full-time student). Graduating didn't bring much relief either - I moved to Virginia / got a full-time job / got married / bought a house / etc. So, for several years my writing was put on the backburner....... that is, until I saw "Revenge of the Sith."

    Let me guess- it was all downhill from there! How did you stumble upon this site? Did you join immediately or stand there lurking for a long time before gathering the courage to post? Why Star Wars fanfiction?

    I found this site in my quest for RotS fanfiction and lurked for several months before getting up the nerve to post. Looking back, I don't know why I was so nervous because this site has some of the nicest people on the 'net!

    Why Star Wars? Well, I've always been a fan, but something about RotS really struck me. To see Anakin fall so hard and so fast - and for what seemed to be a well-intentioned reason (initially, at least) - it just took my breath away. I wanted to explore the ramifications, the possible AU's, etc. Needless to say, I found it all here and more!

    Well, being faced with such greatness is intimidating- remember how I was all but worshiping you when I realized you were the author of my favorite stories? Good times? So, are you proud or ashamed of your first works? The beginning is often a time of experimentation? and something many of us would like to forget!

    Aw, you are so sweet! I was so flattered when you contacted me and I'm so glad you did because we've had a lot of fun the past year.

    As for my earlier fanfictions, they hold a special place in my heart because they made me remember how fun it was to write - and I will always be grateful for that. I do wish I would have edited them a bit further though - sometimes the flow isn't as smooth as I would like.

    Tell me about it! I guess that?s one way of looking back on old works! Moving on? which ?ship intrigues you the most- Obi-Wan and Sabe or Anakin and Padmé?

    As you probably guessed, I'd have to go with Anakin / Padme. Well, except during "The Phantom Menace" when their age difference seemed to be about fifteen years ins
