Author : jedinemo

Rating and disclaimer : Rated PG-13. The Star Wars Universe belongs to George Lucas and Lucasfilm Ltd, and I have gained nothing but satisfaction from this fanfic.

Summary : Darth Vader has an unsettling encounter within the Imperial Palace that changes the course of Galactic history.

Timeline : A few years before the events of ANH.


Chapter Twelve




Anakin hurried through the Palace halls towards the grand foyer. It was virtually unheard of to have an intruder in the Palace, but it had happened, and on his watch. He felt no sense of danger in the Force, but that didn't lessen his feeling of urgency. With Vader unreachable in some meeting, the stormtroopers had summoned him, and he would fulfill his role as the Emperor's apprentice.

The sound of a female voice in the Palace was also a rarity, and it caught Anakin's attention immediately. Whoever she was, she was fighting mad. "Ma'am, ma'am," he heard one of the stormtroopers say. "Ma'am, you have to hold still."

I gave my horse an extra hug yesterday.





After watching the Kentucky Derby yesterday, and seeing Eight Belles run a tremendous race, only to break both her front legs after crossing the finish line, I felt absolutely sick. And I've worked on a thoroughbred farm, so I'm not one of those who claim owners and trainers are greedy, heartless people, because I know that's far from the truth. Still, American thoroughbred racing is headed for a crisis, if it's not already there.

Chapter Eleven




Anakin raised his right arm, his hand hovering over the lever that controlled the energy field securing the Jedi's cell. He could have used the Force to depress the lever, but using his hand made the act more deliberate.

Nothing could make the act more sensical. The Jedi was an enemy warrior, and Anakin had no business releasing him. His reward was likely to be the old man turning on him, having waited patiently for the perfect opportunity to strike Anakin down. And even if he didn't, Vader's wrath upon discovering that Anakin had purposefully violated his parting directive was likely to be mighty. But here he was, and not for the first time, teetering on the knife edge of his decision.

Chapter Ten




Anakin watched the prisoner sleep. Curled on his side to make himself fit on the narrow cell bed, the old man didn't seem like much of a threat. His thick brown cloak was worn and marked by small holes, and his heavy leather boots were well creased. The prisoner looked more like a refugee than an enemy warrior. But appearances could be deceiving; Anakin knew that from living with Palpatine. However old and decrepit his mentor had looked, the power he had possessed had been nearly limitless.

I'm on my way to Norwescon for the weekend. One of my favorite writers, Dan Simmons, is GOH, and fanficcer turned pro Naomi Novik is the special guest. I'm very excited to be getting away, as my job has just been endless these past six months. The next chapter of The Protege' may be delayed a few days, but that's more work's fault than Norwescon's.

And speaking of work, I couldn't help linking to these hints when hiring women that I found via jaylake's blog. I'm sure you'll find them...erm...intriguing. Oh, or maybe I meant incindiary.

Chapter Nine




Darth Vader thumbed his lightsaber to life. How many times had he dreamt of this moment, of having Obi-Wan at his mercy, about to pay for everything he'd done? He sensed Obi-Wan's pity, and it only enraged him more. He didn't want Obi-Wan's pity, he wanted Obi-Wan to suffer as he had suffered. He waved his lightsaber at Obi-Wan's chest. "Defend yourself!"

Chapter Eight




Bail Organa had observed many Jedi in his lifetime. He'd sat with them in formal meetings, less often at social gatherings, and he was always struck by how ordinary they seemed. A being who could sense another's thoughts, or see the future, or throw a Senate pod around with their mind ought to have a neon sign on their forehead. But to a one, they looked like the average human, or Mirialan, or whatever their species.

Chapter Seven




Anakin glanced back at his speeder before he entered the top floor of the Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center. Even following the nav computer's instructions, it had still been a white-knuckle flight, the farthest he had traveled alone. Strangely, Vader had forgotten to change the name of the facility, maybe because it was usually referred to by its shortened name, EmPal SuRecon. Or maybe because Vader disliked the place as much as he did. Though Palpatine had brought him here many times, the sense of unease that followed him through its hallways had never lessened. Even now an unbidden shiver swept through him as he made his way to the medical lab.

Chapter Six




There he was.

Sprawled out under the engine compartment of the dissassembled TIE, was his son, Luke. Smaller than he expected, but lean and with enough muscle to heft the bank of thrusters back into place. The boy worked methodically, as if he knew what he was doing, even though it was unlikely he'd ever been this close to a TIE before. And although Luke's presence glowed in the Force, the boy appeared unaware of his gift, reaching to pick up even the smallest of tools.
