I'm not sure about the body of the piece, but the end was great. I loved the touch about Vader's armor being empty.

An interesting take on the end of Jedi. I thought it was a good idea, but both men seemed out of character. Neither sounded 100% like themselves. A good effort though. I give it a 7. I'd also encourage that... person that gave you a five to stand up and give his/her reasoning.

Like the reader before me, I'd also like to know why this story received a rating of only 5 by someone. Then again, I've seen other stories about the Sith and Imperials get undeservedly low ratings here, so I am not surprised by it whatsoever, just disappointed.
Your exploration of an alternate battle between Palpatine and Vader was most creative and insightful. The question you address is a good one: despite the outcome of life or death for Luke Skywalker, would Vader have rebelled against the Emperor had his son not become involved with their own destiny?

That was a well written fanfic, and i liked it, but like the person said before me,
It probably wouldn't have ended up that way, ahd Luke died before Vader was changed.

A disappointing end to Jedi. Even though the Emperor and Vader get what they deserve, it could have been more real.

Excellent concept... My only gripe was the speech patterns of Vader and Palpy. They were very ouc of character. Aside from that, veru well done, and highly creative.

I liked the concept of this, and I found the action plausible -- what if Vader *had* "woken up" too late to save Luke? The kind of numbing shock you portray (with its reversion to the behavior of a slave) seems very much in character given the what-if of the scenario. I'd love to see this expanded a bit.

An interesting "What If?". My only problem with it is I don't think Vader would get the warm fuzzy from the Force when he was using to kill anyone. Even if it is the incarnation of Evil.

I thought it was a great idea but like the previous coment. Evan if Vader returned to the light, would he realy crush the emperors heart, luke chose not to fight after all.

i liked it. it was a new take, you did a nice job. was that luke straeking behind the falcon away from the destruction?

Not a bad tale. Needs some reworking of the characters personalities. I still enjoyed it. I give it between a 6 and a 7.

great story.i really liked it, the only problem is that i dont think vader would really react like that in the shuttle.but it is really great. and no, max unfortunatly it was wedge flyin` behind falcon

the first story i ever red, but still great.only problem is that vader and palpatine don`t look like guys we all know, but everything else is perfect.
i give it a 7.

I found this one a bit strange, actually. Great overall, but not my taste, unfortunatley. But just because it's not my type of story doesn't mean it's not good. I do disagree with Darth Vader actually feeling peace when killing his master. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I am surprised no one has stated the obvious here. If the Emperor were still alive during the entire battle of Endor, the second Death Star would have more than likely never been destroyed. Palpy was coordinating the battle with the darkside and all hell broke lose when he died, which is why the Alliance won.

Vader would never be able to kill Palpatine, he's just too powerful. Good Story though I liked it.

The dialogue between them was definately out of character. but YOu had the right idea,,,, if said in character then it would have been better.
Yes Anakin Skywalker is stronger then the Emperor.. it comes to the same conclusion as ROTJ that palpatine would die at Skywalker's hand whether on the death star or in the shuttle.

Good story. While I liked the original RotJ ending, I do think events could have easily taken this turn. Though I wouldn't have had Luke die, I think in a real world (as opposed to what has to happen to give movie-goers a bright happy ending) your kind of ending might have been far more likely. It seems to happen far more often that people wait to repent until after they've lost what should have mattered most to them all along.

First I must say to DarEx, uhhh, duh, Vader did kill Palpy in the movie. Anyways...I thought this was pretty well written. It leaves alot to be wondered about what will happen with the Jedi now. Not bad.

The only thing I want to know is what killed Vader? I mean I saw no reason for the systems in his suit to shut down.

Good story, as said b4, dialouge needs tweaking, but a good possible Infinies ending. If anyone really cares, the wedge following the falcon was probably Wedge Antilies in his X-wing. And the My thought of what happened to vader, being a cyborg and needing his respirator to live, He did become a jedi and did a vanishing death. thats my thought 9 for the redeeming ending
Date posted: 8/19/2002 9:49:23 PM
creative ending to the original trilogy. I'd give it an 8. However, like some others i thought that darth Vader and the emperor acted a little out of character. Still a good read.

As was said by another, they were both out of character and didn't react how I would have imagined, still a good effort and a good job!

I can't believe Luke was killed by the Emperor! Vader did not save Luke! It was so sad! It didn't happen in the movie though!

It wasn't a bad story but it wasn't remarkable. The idea was decent and the part at the end with Vader's armor being empty was the part that made me like it better.

That was really good! I thought the characterizations were alright, you oughta do a sequel and goof around with some of the info ep iii gave us.

I enjoyed this a lot. I liked the twist you gave it and answered the "what if..." idea. And here i thought I was the only onbe who thought Vader would be forgiven by the force and all, for i know many people who disagree. Anyway, keep up the awesome writing!

I knew this but was being encouraged by nrmueous calls to upgrade so I just wanted to see what was available. He would not show me any new phones as it was too early and the phones I could see now might not be available in 3 months'. So I walked out, went to an Orange shop and bought a pay as you go. I will never go back to Vodafone.Posted 27/04/2013 at
