Holy cow! I loved this. I had tears streaming down my face by the end. And the way you tied it back to the last movie was great. One of the best ones I've read in a long time! Great job!

OMG... Darth Vader was actually Anakin Skywalker the whole time!?! Well that's just dandy! ;) I did love the story however though I am confused as to if the past was actually changed or if the Force just allowed him to relive part of his life?

A fantastic fanfiction. Majorly impressed. Love the way you showed that even if Anakin had not given in to Sidious at his office, the Jedi had still pushed him towards the Dark Side. Same with the newborn Luke causing the death of Padme... At the end, it was so sad, as he lost all that "only" to redeem himself.

I made the mistake of printing this up to read while I waited for my kids to get out of school. That was a mistake! Because by the time the bell rang, I was bawling like a baby and trying to hide my face!
A lovely and powerful work! WOW!

Wow. I've definitely played with this idea a lot, but never like this. This turned out wonderfully and I thoroughly enjoyed it (except for being worried that my roommate would walk in while I was verging on tears. ;-)) Very, very well written. I really look forward to more of your work. :-)

A masterpiece! I had actually been considering an alternative universe story of Anakin's fall, where he redeems himself and prevents the Empire from arising (and then gets to see his children born and Padme live). I must say, this is the best way for it to have occurred.

Oh this was so beautifully done and had me moved to tears! I loved how despite his decision to do things right Anakin still remains Anakin with the struggles...My only regret is that this isn't longer!!!

I will never understand how anyone is moved to tears by a work of fiction(FICTION!!)...
Not to say it wasnt a very good fanfic, though..
My only problem with this one was the EXTREEM 'touchy feelyness' between Anikin and Obi-wan at the end...Im not that close to MY dad.
Other than that, I though it was very well done.

This story (Keep Falling Down) perfectly fills in that void you undoubtedly feel after watching RoTS. RoTS's storyline, (while necessary) is disheartening as you watch an inevitable doom approaching with no chance of avoidance. It (Keep Falling Down) takes RoTS and changes it from story of sadness with no alternative to one of hope and a chance of redemption, all the while remaining within the confines of Lucas's original concept.
I must say that, in my humble opinion, this is the perfect story thread to weave Episode I-VI together into a seamless story with a victorious ending. A very good piece of storytelling agentj.

I thought it was a really good story. I love the "twist" at the ending. I did think the spelling of words like medcentre and lightsabre were a little off. All in all I gave it a ten

i was on the verge of tears the whole time...
i think that its good because you know whats going to happen in rots and you just want to scream out "dont do it!!!"...
i loved the twist at the end...
and i was scared the whole time my mom would come in and find me crying...
keep up the good work!!!

Well done! Best fan fic I've read to date! I loved the story so much I hid in the bathroom so I could have peace and quiet to finish reading it, away from my hubby and son. This story really does fill the void felt after watching ROTS. So sad to watch Anakin make such terrible mistakes that doom him to a haunted shell locked in metal casing. After my son watched ROTS the other day, I asked him if he understand the message-- why it was that Anakin Skywaker turned into Darth Vader. Mind you, my son is only four and took the question very literally. He answered: "He put a mask on and then he was Darth Vader." Yes, but... I told him: "Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader because he made bad choices. He didn't turn to those he loved when he was in trouble. Bad choices lead to bad things happening. This is a story of why you need to make good choices, and trust in those you love when you get in trouble." How wonderful, then, to read this fan fic and see what would have happened if Anakin had made good choices! When my son is old enough, I am going to share this story with him.
Great work! Looking forward to more from you...

Will you rewrite the rest of the SW universe as sequels to this? I'd like to see you do it.

Wow. Bravo agentj, you had me in tears by the end. I think George Lucas should let you make this into some kind of deleted scene feature or something, because that was just SO good. I can tell it was from the heart. Job well done :)

So gorgeous!!! I couldn’t stop crying. The birth scene had me balling like a complete baby. I have never felt so much emotion in a fan-fiction before. This is the best piece I have read yet and you played Anakin to a tee. Reading this story I actually see everything happening like you’d see in the movies. It was extremely well written.
Date posted: 11/13/2005 2:30:06 PM
Excellent work. I'm still pondering on whether it really was AU or just speculation in Anakin's mind. Emotionally powerful.
Date posted: 11/14/2005 4:08:07 PM
My god. THis is amazing. This story.....I'm spechless. It's just so good. I always thought by Anakin refusing to let Padme out of his life, he actually forced it to be that way. I guess the Force tried to teach him a lesson, and the second time......well, you just wrote it.
Again, this was an amazing story. My pleasure to read it.

It was brilliant! I loved the fact that they lived happily ever after. I, being a fan of the relationship thought it was great and I would have liked it if the movies ended lie that but they way they ended was fine.
The story was entertaining.

A very well written story, an interesting idea, and remarkably captivating. I believe it could have been better if the reality of the "Dark Vision" had been more concrete, but excellent work, in any case.

Wow! Oh, wow! I have this weird habit of reading stories out loud to myself, and i had to stop reading "Keep Falling Down" out loud because i was crying! I loved it! Every time i watch Revenge of the Sith, I cry when Anakin turns against the Jedi and destroys the Temple, when Obi-Wan and Anakin fight on Mustafar and Anakin quite literally falls to the Dark Side. Oh, this was good. Thanks for such a moving, provoking story. Adding Qui-Gon's ghost was really cool. Well done, well done.

Absolutely beautiful... I'm practically speechless and so choked up that I'm glad I'm using a keyboard to respond.
While the story was amazing in any case, wonderfully written and dead on characterizations, the fact that it was all the Force's way of purifying his soul just made the story that much more poignant... though also much more heartbreaking. You had me thinking that they'd all get that happily ever after, and then it turned out not to be real. So sad... yet perfect. I can't get over that marvelous ending twist. I love the idea that Anikan wasn't just punished for his sins as Vader, but he wasn't just forgiven either. For someone who fell as far as he did, it would have had to be a long journey back.
But I'm babbling. Again, wonderful. 10/10.

Good story, this is the 2nd time i've read it. I love how you had Luke causing Padme's death. vs. her dying of a broken heart like in the movies. AT least that's always how I thought it happened. Alot more realisitc. nice job.

I haven't had a chance or even a reason to respond to one of the sparsely few fanfics I've read so far. Being relatively new to TFN's offerings, I likewise haven't seen that many listings. Loved the middle, Anakin going back in time and fixing his mistakes is definitely an improvement over Ep. III.
