star wars rebel AU by shorelle star wars rebel AU by shorelle

so… Star Wars is one of those things where I love it so much because of the way the story turned out, but at the same time I have a million AUs for how I also wish it could have gone.

I-I just really want one where Anakin doesn’t turn/turns back early and ends up as a leader of the Rebel Alliance (the Jedi Order having still been destroyed), while Padme remains on Coruscant as a senate spy to leak intel to the rebels. Of course, they’re separated to the public eye (trying to make this plausible so that Palpatine at least believes he caused a permanent rift between them, and he wants to keep Luke around to turn him later... idk how Anakin would keep from going crazy with paranoia with Padme and Luke being in such a dangerous position, but I'm also assuming he's gained some... self-control after recovering the first time :P ANYWAY) 

And they end up with one twin each, so... ~*~THE SPOILER ~*~ is still a spoiler for Luke in all these AUs ahaha. and I love the potential dynamic of switching the twins around XD (Leia's trained in the Jedi arts but still has an affinity with blasters ;))

(P.S. air and angels by irnan is a wonderful fic with this premise, that was an inspiration too! she's also written a whole lot of other incredible SW fics, A+ WOULD RECOMMEND)

I love the idea of Anakin bringing little Leia on missions :happybounce:  And I love the rebel outfit you gave him.

There's a saying in literature -- primarily in regard to Shakespeare's tragedies, but it can be applied to other areas -- that a tragedy isn't about things going wrong so much as things _almost_ going right.  When the curtain falls and everyone is dead or wishing they were, it doesn't matter nearly as much to the audience if it was like for that the whole story start-to-finish, than if it started hopeful and got close enough to see a happy ending before everything went wrong.  And you can't just drop some Diabolus Ex Machina out of nowhere to make everything horrible, it has to be the protagonists themselves that cause the tragedy.  So I think that's where a lot of Star Wars' emotional impact comes from -- it's The Tragedy Of Anakin Skywalker.  Anakin doesn't fall to the dark side just because Sideous brainwashes him into evil -- he falls because he's a very human character with emotional motivations and fears (primarily, wanting to protect the people he cares about), and because the Jedi Order is really crappy at dealing with emotions (seriously, that place is wildly unqualified to raise children), and because he hangs around a Sith Lord who's clever enough to realize that being able to manipulate people and gain power without using the Force is actually really useful, and who knows how to push Anakin's psychological buttons until he breaks.  

Seriously, the presence of _one competent psychiatrist_ could have fixed the entire situation.

What? Where did you get that they were dating? If you have seen the movie; Their relationship is based purely on fathery respect. Rey doesn't have her father around, and suddenly this great man of history shows up in her life and treats her with respect, and she looks up to him.

Okay, then you should know that, in the movies, Han never really was with the Rebels. He was just helping Luke, along with Chewie. Even in the new movie, they aren't really a part of the resistance(as it's now called.) I'm not sure how you connected that with Rey not dating Han though...What do those two things have to do with each other?
