Anakin Skywalker will not become Darth Vader. Not yet, anyway. Padmé saved him from a lifetime of regret by pulling him out of the fateful battle between Mace Windu and Chancellor Palpatine. But at some point, he still has to decide if his heart lies with the Jedi or the Sith.

Palpatine, undeterred by the loss of his potential apprentice, still devises 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 searching for a greater purpose. Meanwhile, Padmé raises Luke while working with Bail Organa and Mon Mothma to lead the fight against the oppressive Galactic 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 Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, 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! Don't forget to vote and comment- feedback from the readers is the most important thing to me about Wattpad!

Hi! I really like the story so far. I found it on my home page, I think it was just recommended for me. I'll be sure to keep reading!
I really like the story so far! And I already like how you're writing it🙂
It makes no sense for them to split up. There is no reason whatsoever to split them up; I'm assuming you did so to create drama?
Wow!!! This was a great start to the story. I love all the details you've added. I can't wait to read more!
