This was such a good story! I love it. I read it the first time on fanfix.com, and I'm very glad to see it here. The idea that Princess Leia and Vader met before really appeals to me. It makes the scene in A New Hope more meaningful when Leia and Vader talk in the corridor before she is forced away. Thanks for this great story, and continue writing!

Nicely done. JediGaladriel/FernWithy had another take on Vader and Leia, but this one has a great deal of merit as well. Loved Bail Organa's panic in the city when he sees Vader with his daughter (hehehe... [b]whose[/b] daughter. Big grin on this reader's face!

Wow, I can't believe so many people have read this story. Over 450 hits! However, I'm disappointed that so few have left a comment. Please leave something, even if it's just a few words. (Especially if you're giving me a low rating!) For those of you who have commented, thank you, they are well appreciated.
Happy reading to everyone!

Very, very well done. Not only was it a good idea, but the story was well executed (no pun intended :) and the characters were wonderful. I could see Leia's personality in it, and I loved how Bail Organa was alarmed to see Vader talking to her. I can just hear what he thought Vader was saying (i.e., "Leia, I m your father . . .").
Keep up the good work!

Wel written. It is both light and dense at the same time, great characterization. Any film director should find this tale a very good excuse to make a short film. It could deliver some great performances out of actors and some dramatic camera shots. I just Know it. Keep up the good work!

how spooky!! when i read it i thought leia would meet palpantine but she met her real father. i can imaging why bail organa had a near heart attack if vader knew the truth bail and probably leia too would have been daed in a second

Good grief, what is WITH you guys??? I thought this was a very good little story ... certainly didn't deserve a *6.3* .

Wonderful story. Enjoyed it very much.

I think the author captured Leia's essence perfectly. It was very easy to 'see' her at fourteen. I admit a moment of shameful surprise. I thought the secret guest was going to be Tarkin.
A fun read.

I really like this story. I've never seen this kind of take on when Leia first meets Vader before. Keep up the good work. :)

Great job. This was a well-written short, and your characterisations were very good.

Very interesting scenerio. I liked it. I would have liked to a less restrained Vader. I imagine the Dark Lord would have great difficulty attending a formal diplomatic function.

good story, but i had always thought vader didn't know of leah being his daughter till he fought luke on the death star... o well nice concept, :)

This is a really cute, well-written story. I'm rather intrigued by the fics that explore the pre-trilogy relationship between Leia and--it's so strange to call my one true love "Vader"--the Dark Anakin. Also, everyone's in-character, which is always good. Great job :)

I wasn't going to leave a comment, but as I read through the rest I noticed Sreya had said something on that matter, so I re-thought my initial idea.
I really don't know how to comment, so I'll just say that I enjoyed this story very much. It's a heart warming scene, at least to me, and like others have mentioned before, the intereactions are wonderfully made.
I give my most sincere praise to this lovely piece of fiction.

I almost didn't read this story because it recieved such a low rating - I don't know why THAT is! It was a wonderful story! I agree with Sabbrielle - I can't imagine Ani - er, VADER - being so collected in a room full of boring stiffs. They must have irritated him with their petty chatter, and he isn't known for his self-restraint. I loved how the crowd parted for him - very realistic! :p

interesting! I liked how you wrote the conversation between Vader and Leia...however I wished it were a little longer. I rated it a 9 so keep up the good work!

"No, dearest, he hasn't had much experience with adolescents." I found that rather funny. Filled with a lovely irony, it's a cute little fic.

Great story! I really enjoyed reading it. I also really liked the cover art--the drawing was beautiful. Leia was wonderfully done--I could really see her saying and doing what she did.

Wow, great job! I really enjoyed reading it. I love fanfiction about Leia and Darth Vader. The cover art is brillant too!

GREAT ! Even in the movies, there was "something" going on between Leia & Vader( a bit like Lecter & Starling). I could imagine people spreading rumours he´s in love with her...
When Luke tells Leia the truth she answers:"Somehow I´´ve always known..."
I think Vader knew too...

I was linked here today via a fanfiction recomendation community and I really enjoyed this. Such lovely characterizations!

This was an incredibly lovely piece of work. I truly enjoyed the subtle and yet beautiful interaction between Lord Vader and his daughter. Even though neither is aware of the other you can see the connection between them, they are on the same wavelength so to speak in that moment.
