Great story. It melds simplicity and richness very well.

Nemesis's Comments:

I really, really enjoyed this. The love of flying that runs in the Skywalker blood is a huge part of both movie trilogies, but I'd never seriously thought about whether Anakin-as-Vader still loved to fly. It's a little hard to imagine Vader genuinely enjoying anything.

But you capture his thoughts beautifully, and the idea that in a starfighter he can be free, for a little while, of the constraints of his new body rings wonderfully true.

Great work, VL.

Nice Fanfic. I remember reading "Dark Lord", about how crippled and restricted Vader was, but it's nice to hear he still has some traits and abilities as a pilot even as a cyborg. Good.

I thought this was an incredibly well done look into how Darth Vader viewed his present and past life. A very well done interpretation.

Wonderful vignette. You perfectly capture Vader's inner conflict between his past and his present, the desire to be free from the suit that both sustains and enslaves him, if even for just a few moments.

This is an excellent piece of writing. For me, it captures that fascinating period during which Skywalker is slowly, but irrevocably becoming Vader .. much in the same was as "Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader" does so. Very good work and a very enjoyable read.

These looks at a "Young Vader," still clearly struggling with reconciling who he is now with who he was before, are great, and you've handled this one masterfully. I especially loved that moment when he was afraid to truly push his abilities to the limit for fear they'd come up short.

I would very much like to narrate this! I'm putting together a collection of narrated fanfiction, done audiobook style, called HoloNet Audio Dramas, to help bring the fun of fanfiction to visually impaired fans.

Some of what I've done can be found here:
