I really loved this.
To me it was excellent. In a lot of the other stories I never feel like reading the whole thing, but with this, it kept me interest till the end

This was an excellent story. I love the premise of two Skywalker women interacting through time. You captured Padme` beautifully, her elegance and regal behavior as well as her humanity. It was nice to see a lighter side to Mara, and her reactions were perfect. The whole Sabe`/Obi-Wan thing I didn't like at first, but seeing how it played out made it worth it. Unfortunately, Obi-Wan won't get a love interest in the films. And I really like that Luke gets the memory he deserves. You captured his reaction just as I would imagine: completely devastated by such joy. Fantastic job!

WOW!! I think that this is most definitely one of the 2 best fanfics that I have ever read (the other being "Of Dreams and Destiny"). It brought me to tears and gave some wonderful background that is absolutely believeable. The words of praise that would do this story justice have yet to be uttered by anyone. Thank you so much for this wonderful work!

I really liked how you had Mara and Padme meet each other through the mirror...it was a very effective and compelling plot device, and I think you used Mara's native skepticism well when she first meets Padme. I wasn't so crazy about the Obi-Wan/Sabe subplot, but otherwise, I really enjoyed your story.

Wow . . .
That was amazing, RebelMom! What an intriguing idea. It's always bugged me that Luke and Leia have no way to find out who their mother was, though I've often wondered why they didn't ask Mon Mothma or someone. What a beautiful wedding gift, too.
As always, you write Luke and Mara perfectly.

Aww... *sniff* I'm so glad this is archived, so I don't have to go hacking through the Fanfic forum to find it again. It's just such a beautiful story, one could read it a dozen times and always be touched by something. Just the right balance of drama, romance, sorrow and joy. You handled Padmé's emotions without a hitch.

This is awesome, RebelMom!!! I loved the Padmé/Mara interaction, and the way the honeymoons paralleled one another. You really caught each woman's personality dead on. While the Sabé/Obi-Wan thing was a little jolting, I like the way you tied it into the story. Nice job!

Let me just start by saying, OH MY LAND THIS IS THE GREATEST FAN FICTION I HAVE EVER READ. And I have read alot of fan fictions. You captured your audience right from the beginning and kept us glued to our seat to the very end. I liked how you gave Luke a memory and added that last part about Mara's history. I thought it was so cool that Obi-Wan and Sabe had Mara. I liked how that sort of tied to Luke early on in life. It made me feel that Mara and Luke were meant to be since Sabe was Padme's handmadein and Obi-Wan started Luke's training and protected Padme. Really good job. I just can't say enough about this wonderful fan fiction. I can't wait to see other works by you. Wow. Keep up the fantastic work and you'll go far!

*grabs for a tissue again* Awww, Mom, this is still one of the most touching stories I've read. The angst of Padme, the joy of marriage, the gift that Luke got at the end (and Mara, for that matter) is absolutely astounding. I'm so glad it was archived; it really deserved a place here. :-)

This is one of the most wonderful fanfics I have ever read! It adds such a wonderful "what if" twist to the stories of my most fav characters. If only Mara could have had the family alluded to...but I would wonder how the Emperor would manage to pull her away from Obi-wan and train her as his Hand. I think it is truly wonderful that Luke received the gift of a memory of Padme'...if only he and Leia could learn of her in the EU! This is a story I will always remember! Well-written to the very end!

Good work Mom. I'm sure Dad is very proud of his lady. I like the way you show Mara in a different light. I enjoyed it very much. Don't put too much stock in any of the comments about the Obi/Sabe twist not working, it fits perfectly. There are some plot-holes but that's why this is called FANfiction. We do what we want. Keep writing and I look forward to reading more of your work. JEDI SALUTE

mom, you RULE at writing fanfic. you took advantage of the holes in the sw history (such as mara's parents) and made them very believable. there are still a lot of things we don't know about (hehe check out han solo's family tree...)

great story, i printed it out and showed the few SW fans at school, they all liked it.

Really well-written story. Some interesting ideas. I'm not sure about the Obi-Wan/Sabe thing (Sabe and some other Force-sensitive guy would have been better, I think), but it is an interesting concept that Mara and Luke were somehow linked by parentage.

Thanks for all the nice comments. They are greatly appreciated. I thought I'd address the Obi/Sabe issue. I originally wrote this in 2000, well before EP2. I'd picked up the Obi/Sabe pairing in several fanfics and decided to use it. Even though I updated after EP2, I left Obi/Sabe alone because I liked how it worked in the story.
Thanks again. :)

This was a wonderful story, one of the best I've ever read. I feel so sad for Padme, but still so happy that Luke will have a memory of her. I also thought that the Obi/Sabé issue was handled well, I usually don't like those kinds of stories, but here it was just so natural.

This fanfic is excellent. I always thought it was terrible that Luke and Leia never found out what their parents were like before Anakin changed, and this did an excellent job doing it. *Applause*

Oooh. This is cool. The idea of both meeting in the mirror is fantastic, especially that the both of them could "meet" once again, when it had been so long for Amidala, but only a while for Mara.

this is an excellent fic. it was written very well.it really flowed. it had the right about of Love (scenes) and exposition.
the Mirror communication was an excellent devise to use. ( i might use it in some form)

It's gorgeous! I love it very much! But the relationship between Obi Wan and Sabe is kind of strange for me. Better you search for somebody else than a handmaiden for his spouse. I love that Luke has a memory of his mother, and Mara with Obi Wan. Could you make a story about Obi Wan's wife??

great story. loved every word of it. the obi-wan sabe thing was kinda wierd, but i thought it was a good twist. it leaves me with question on how the emperor got mara from obi-wan. you should do a story on how that happened, and how obi-wan and sabe connect.

Lovely story. But the part about Mara being Obi-Wan's daughter was a little too farfetched, like a Mexican "telenovela" where everybody is somebody's sister, brother or lost lover. Obi-Wan lived to a long age, so how come Mara never met her father? You should have left it at Mara telling Padme that everything turns out OK in the end.
Still, it was beautifully written and an original idea.

I don't really bother reading anything that involves any of the original trilogy anymore, sadly, but I read this story, and I love it. In that one paragraph where it tells us how PAdme was playing with Luke. If only George Lucas did it that way. Making Anakin think she had died, when she didn't. And then killing her after she spent some time with the children. That paragraph touched me deeply. It is a very good story. Thanks for writing it.
