This is the film I would make, set between Episode III and Episode IV:

Under the guidance of the Emperor, Darth Vader – once Anakin Skywalker – is learning what it is to be a Sith Lord. The peace of the new Empire is far from stable and many former Confederation star systems have yet to accept Palpatine’s rule. The political climate is fraught as many in the Imperial Senate struggle to reconcile themselves with the new system of government, Bail Organa among them.

Meanwhile, two Jedi padawans – their Masters slain in the Jedi Purge – can rely on no one but themselves in a galaxy now hostile to them – even the gambler who gives them passage to the Core, Calrissian, is more than he seems. And, despite the speed of Calrissian’s ship, a bounty-hunter called Fett is hot on their tracks, for they have something the galaxy would kill for: evidence Palpatine himself was responsible for the Clone Wars.

Queen Breha and her husband are walking the fine line between nurturing a fledgling Alliance against the Emperor and keeping the true identity of their daughter secret. Can they afford to help the young Jedi – especially when everything is on the line? And what will happen when Darth Vader, supervising the installation of Alderaan’s new governor – Wilhuff Tarkin – realises that all is not as it seems? The Galaxy has changed and nothing is certain. From the backstreets of Alderaan, to the wasted surface of Cato Nemoidia, to the scarlet corridors of the Imperial Senate, the air is thick with danger and no one is safe…

Glad you like! It just feels like a missing link to me: more about Bail, Breha, young!Vader, and Lando! (And Palpatine, of course! ;)

Yes, it does. It is a twenty year gap, and much happened in those times.

And you adding Lando and Boba, as well as Cato Neimoidia acknowledges the expanse of the Star Wars univers.

Always, Always Palpatine!

Hey, did you still want that fic beta'd?

Exactly! And it's my favourite time period too! :)

I really want to see young Lando with the Falcon.

I do! I just have to go to sleep, wake up, and put the final touches on it! It's 2.10am... >.>

It does sound epic - that is why I am not going to write it! Already have Alexis, YKW?, and the neglected Crash to finish!!

Almost done! *pants*

Excited as I am about Alexis getting completed, it will be bittersweet as well. No more updates to look forward to :(

I know... part of me is holding off a bit from writing the end because it's... the end... *sniffles* I'm very proud of it, though. Hopefully the ending will be epic enough for you to not be sad.

You should be proud of it. More people should read it! Buncha Palpatine haters!

LOL, no thank you. I have worked in the industry and you, my dear, are welcome to it. Editors are fun vampires. As for me, I like the freedom of fan fiction. :wicked grin: But don't be afraid to dream big and go for it. :)

Sounds completely IC and I hope it gets written in between your other stories, wow, Alexis keeps getting better and better!

Lost Padawans! Breha struts her stuff! Liking this ...
From: [identity profile] ansketil-rose.livejournal.com
I find your continuous parade of debauched Obi-Wan and Anakin icons to be rather awe inspiring... *_*

Hee! Thanks - Wyn has taught me the Breha needs love and I've always thought we deserved to see Alderaan for more than a few seconds considering its political importance and what happened to it.

I've always wanted to see a version of the Original Trilogy where Mara Jade was actually Palpatine and Mon Mothma's daughter who was legally recognized as Palpatine's heir. I always thought it would be interesting to have a figure of the Empire that could complete with Leia Organa for the heart of the people. I see people collecting Princess Mara commemorative plates and porcelian dolls and special issues of TIME and PEOPLE dedicated to the Princess. Of course, she would still have the ability to slink about in dark places as a femme fatale for the Emporer... The best part would be when Leia says, "But I'm a Diplomat!" and Mara says, "I don't care." and the most epic cat fight follows. OMG, yes.

It lend a Turandot cast to the Original Trilogy where Mara and Leia are vying for the affections of the audience. Leia will still end up with Solo, and Mara will still end up with Luke...so that leaves the audience to decide how to devide their affections.

These are two women who have hated each other their whole lives and they will continue to despice each other after they become in-laws. It makes family gatherings at Wookie Life Day...tense, to say the least.

Also, Boba Fett is Mara's "boyfriend" (that Palpatine didn't approve of so he was really Mara's way of getting back at Daddy) and he doesn't die in the Sarlac. He's dealt with toothed vagina's before (Mara) and he knows how to handle them. They were never in love, there is no Coruscant (Paris) for them, more of a Brigid O'Shaughnessy/Samuel Spade fling from the Maltese Falcon.

If anyone wants to write this, be my guest.

That sounds really, really cool. I love the Palpatine + Mon = Mara thing! And the Turandot plotline too, omg! You should post this on your own lj as a Writer's Block and enter the competition!

That sounds awesome! I was thinking of doing Boba Fett and what made him follow in his father's footsteps.

Sounds terrific! I love the last paragraph best of all, especially:

"Queen Breha and her husband are walking the fine line between nurturing a fledgling Alliance against the Emperor and keeping the true identity of their daughter secret. Can they afford to help the young Jedi – especially when everything is on the line?"

And then: "From the backstreets of Alderaan, to the wasted surface of Cato Nemoidia, to the scarlet corridors of the Imperial Senate, the air is thick with danger and no one is safe…"

It reads as well as the OT opening film crawls, and better than those starting the NT films. :)

Just saw that you won the contest -- nice job! I especially like the "evidence that Palpy was responsible for the Clone Wars" part (although I am somewhat baffled by what kind of evidence an evil genius like him could possibly overlook) and also the hint of the seeds of distrust between him and Anakin -- very imaginative and intriguing!

wow! Great film synopsis, I would love to see this filmed! Congrats on winning the contest!
