It doesn't seem like a whole lot of people have read this fanfic. I feel bad for them. They missed a good story.

Thank you! Actually, over three thousand people have read this. But no one commented on this board. The reason is that it is so long, people probably print it out, then read. It is then extra work to go back and comment. If a story can be read on screen in one sitting, commenting is easy and done often.

I read this story and the others from the same author a while back when it had titles like the opening of the Star Wars movies, I was easily taken into the feel of Star Wars. Not only are these very good stories but they fit very nicely into the Star Wars story line, the author has a very good writing style and knack of telling his vision and making you see it very well. Great story and the others are just as good...I'd give it a 9.5 because nothing is perfect, but since I can't I'll give it a ten and say it's a 9.5. A wonderful read for the true Star Wars fan.

I had high expectations for this story since your spectacular 'Dark Emperor' series, and I'm afraid it didn't meet them. What happened??? I don't like all the stuff in the beginning. And, may I just ask, the Skywalker Testimony????????

Brendon Wahlberg's Comments:
You are entitled to your own tastes, Jedi Author. Many readers have found this to be a satisfying and high quality story. It is different from Dark Emperor in that it heavily features my own creations, characters, places, and species, while DE relies on established settings and characters mostly not my own. Whills is also a more philosphical story with religious overtones and a background in the old script drafts of the Star Wars films. That's where "The Skywalker" comes from, FYI.
So it is not appropriate to ask "What happened?" as if something is wrong. An author wrote a story years ago, which was well recieved and later archived, that's all. This very long story gets few comments here, and I don't really appreciate the addition of one that only bothers to say, It's not to my taste. Does that help other readers? Your mileage may vary, folks.

I've only read the beginning, but I love the touch of having the special mystical meanings behind the letters. How appropriate for a race with a task like the Whills! Inspired by Kabballah, I take it? ;)
Can't wait to have time to come back and finish reading.

Great Fanfic! Isn't it freaky how the prequels still fit in with the world view you had? (maybe the flannelled one read it! 8^D)

I've said it before, and I will say it again, this is one of the best (if not THE best) Star Wars fanfics I have ever read. I've loved it for years.
Your biggest Fan.

Good story! A lot of downtime though, but the great characterization made up for it. Just a question: I thought that prophecy refered to Anakin Skywalker. Though, if it's your interpretation of character, then I regret this comment.

I used the prophecy of the Son of the Suns in an admittedly wierd way in this story - originally it was meant to refer to Luke Starkiller in the early drafts of the scripts. But in the actual films, the "Son of Suns" prophecy is gone and replaced with one about "The Chosen One." So I felt it was okay to use the "Son of Suns prophecy as a discarded concept and apply it to some other person and situation. But the comment above is correct about what it originally was meant for by Lucas.

Excellent, excellent story Brendon. I read your Emperor Palpatine story as well, and I loved it. You are an extraordinarily talented writer. If you ever choose to go pro, do drop me an e-mail with the title of the book.

Your other reader was right, I printed this story out and read it at my leisure.
This was so incredibly well done! So many intricate details that are well thought out. Great characters. We get to see Reb, Desima and Orenth grow before our eyes.
Also great bad guys. Blackhole was very interesting in that we get to see his motives and insights.
Again, I give your work 10/10!

I love this story
And I normally hate fanfic
Anything to do with the Whills is
Right up my ally
On thing though
I wish that people could be allowed to express
Distaste in a story as much as praise
The author chastised a commentor for mentioning That the story was "not in my taste"
Isn't everyone else here saying "This IS in my Taste?
Let people say whatever they want.
No one ever likes to be criticized.
BUT I LOVED THIS STORY.

Great story. I am always curious about the Journal of the Whills as I have one of the original Star Wars Scripts from 1974 and it states that it is taken from the Journal of the Whills.
Could use some more movies explaining it. Or maybe some books.

OK SO TELL ME, IS ANAKIN OR LUKE THE CHOSEN ONE?
AND ALSO, IS THE SON OF SUNS AND THE CHOSEN ONE THE SAME THING?
PLEASE TELL ME EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS YOU KNOW.
I LOVE THE STARWARS GALAXY ALTHOUGH I'N NOT MUCH FOR STORIES OUTSIDE OF THE LUCAS MOVIES AND SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE. BUT I LOVED THIS STORY.
IT DEFINATELY HAS A REAL TOUCH OF GENIOUS! PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION AND KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK. YOU JUST GOT A NEW FAN!!!
(PLEASE ANSWER THE QUESTIONS ABOUT LUKE AND ANAKIN IF IT'S NOT TOO MUCH TROUBLE. THANKS)

According to Lucas, Anakin is the chosen one. The Chosen One is the prophetic figure mentioned only in the films, and the Son of the Suns is the prophetic figure mentioned only in the old Lucas SW script drafts beginning with the second draft. To my understanding, the Son of the Suns was a discarded concept, which inspired and was replaced by the Chosen One concept.

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
FOR EXAMPLE, ONE OF MY FRIENDS IS A STARWARS FAN. HE'S REBELIOUS AGAINST HIS PARENTSAND IS KINDA A BAD KID. HE'S ALWAYS TELLING ME HOW HE LIKES ANAKIN MORE THATN LUKE BECAUSE ANAKIN TURNS TO THE DARK SIDE, THE DARK SIDE IS STONGER, ANAKIN TURNS TO DARTH VADER WHO IS THE COOLEST BADGUY EVER, AND STILL SAVES THE GALAXY IN THE END BY KILLING THE EMPEROR, AND TURNS TO THE GOOD SIDE AT THE LAST SECOND.
STARWAS IS ABOUT THE FIGHT BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL, IT'S SUPPOSED TO MAKE ITS FANS LIKE THE GOOD SIDE AND HAVE A GOOD HERO THEY WANT TO BE LIKE. ALTHOUGH, BY HAVING ANAKIN AS THE #1 HERO (BY MAKING HIM THE CHOSEN ONE) IT TEACHES THE PEOPLE WHO LIKE THE HERO THAT IT'S OK TO GO TO THE DARKSIDE AND KILL AND HATE AND RUIN THE GALAXY BUT STILL AFTER ALL THE MESSUPS IT'S OK, YOU CAN STILL SAVE THE GALAXY, BE THE CHOSEN ONE AND BRING BALANCE TO THE FORCE.
IT MAKES MORE SENSE THAT LUKE SHOULD BE THE CHOSEN ONE. HE NEVER REBELLED OR WAS EVIL HE'S JUST A PLAIN GOOD GUY. LUCAS HAD THE STORY JUST PERFECT WITH THE OLD MOVIES, IF HE REALLY MEANS TO HAVE ANAKIN AS THE #1 HERO I THINK HE HAS IT KINDA WRONG. IT JUST DOESNT MAKE SENSE. IS THERE ANYONE WHO UNDERSTANDS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY?
DO YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY?

i understand what you mean trainer. i do feel tat luke is the chosen one... as he is the one that defect vader by anger (which is the darkside) and after cutting his hand, he realise that, and throw his saber away, and talk sense to vader....
it is so clear cut that he is the chosen one who can use the darkside and the lighside of the force.
i am glad i am not the only one who realise that lol
Date posted: 6/4/2005 7:02:59 AM
Trainer, please dont shout. FYI, Luke DID turn to the dark side when Palpatine was ressurected, and then turned back to the light. Anyway....I love this story!! Is this the story that started the rumor that Yoda's race was Whill? I personally think Lucas should just release the name of Yoda's race.....and they should be called Whills =)

I am actually reading the story now, but I have one question...
Does the Aurebesh script on the cover mean anything.
Im just curious.
Date posted: 2/9/2006 2:23:18 AM
about this chosen one business... Anakin is the true "Chosen One" because he is the one who actually brings the force into balance by doing away with the Sith...(Palpatine and himself) I have always said that once he chose to save his son's life and threw Sidious down the shaft that he finally fulfilled his destiny as the chosen one.(remember there's only two...A Master...And...A...Apprentice...) once Palpatine was gone, and his knowing that it was "Too Late" for him the prophesy was fulfilled, no more Sith!

That was a very good read but if you go on wookipedia you will find that Blackhole was still around after Palpatines death. Apart from that it rocks!!

You blew me away. You really did. This story is just incredible, and incredibly well written. My poor schedule has suffered for my addiction to reading it, but it's worth it.

Eh, the Aurebesh does mean something, actually. Translated, some of it says "Journal of the Whills", but the rest of it is a bunch of curses and such.

A giant fanfic story and truely a great read.
It is not as action oriented as other stories but you need a story for every mood too like with music.
I like the way you used these discarded concepts of eg. "the skywalker" and the whills. I feel that really helped get "the star wars feel" (TM)right even though you weren't blowing up death stars or emperors.
Again a great work I really enjoyed. Truth be told I think I have read your fanfic more times than most books. Serves as a testament to the quality you put in.
