One little twist of fate changes everything in this Star Wars Alternate Universe. Near the end of the Clone Wars, when Mace Windu attacks Palpatine/Sidious and Anakin intervenes, he must choose whether to aid the Jedi or the Sith. In that fateful moment, all it takes is Padmé arriving on the scene to (temporarily) thwart Palpatine's plan to win a new apprentice to the Dark Side.

But Palpatine still uses his scheming and clever mind to devise a way to create the Empire and wipe out the vast majority of the Jedi. He sends various threats directly to Anakin and Padmé to convince them that they and their newborn children are in danger. Fearing for their safety, they split.

For years, Anakin and Leia wander throughout the galaxy, dodging the Empire and trying to find a greater purpose. Meanwhile, Padmé takes Luke and partners with Bail Organa and Mon Mothma to form the Rebel Alliance, and the three of them become known as the executives of the Rebellion Against the Empire. Anakin is constantly tempted by the Dark Side. Padmé struggles to help the Rebels succeed. Their children mean everything to both of them.

The story also features other characters we all know and love, such as Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, Han Solo, and Boba Fett. Most of the story takes place 7 years after Revenge of the Sith.

Please note that I would never change the canon; this story is intended to explore what could have happened, not what should have happened. OCs are used very sparingly. 

Thanks for reading! Please vote and comment! If you vote and comment on 4 chapters in a row, back to back, not counting the prologue, I will PM you a sneak peek of the next chapter!

Unqualified feedback time! This was all great, the only thing is they didn't seem to react as much as they should at Windu's death. But that's it, the rest was great! :)
Ohmegosh, Aurora!  I love how detailed you are!  I knew you were good at writing, but not this good!
