Loved this story. The developing father-son relationship here is one of the most realistic and beautiful I've ever read.

What a great ending! I seriously wish someone would make this series into a movie, it would be so awesome. Thanks for writing it!

Good chapter, I like how Luke is starting to realize his dad really cares for him.

"What do you know about children?" he enquired.
"Well ... I was once a child, sir."
I laughed out loud at that exchange. Curiously low standards from Vader after his possessive and threatening attitude towards Lerrod, the IFS administrator, and the Emperor!
Good thing I enjoyed that laugh, though, because the rest of the chapter was downright painful.
(also, you're may not be interested at this late date, but you used "shoot" when you probably meant "chute.")

Amazing sequel! I loved it and can't wait to read the rest!

I have received the announcement about your new twillight story. I am not a very huge fan of twillight so I did not really get hooked - sorry. But I fall back on your luke and vador's stories...And I read it with the same haw than the first time !

It’s fitting that Vader would free the slaves.
“There were no stairs or elevators, so the stormtroopers quickly began to abseil down to the factory floor using grappling hooks and cables. Vader jumped down, using the Force to control his descent. The troopers instantly began taking out the droids, and the slaves began to yell and cheer in surprise.” I can see this paragraph play out really well; it would be awesome to see in movie form.
“But Luke's shout had stirred something in Vader. If he should die, who would save Luke? He had a reason to fight ... not anger, or hatred, but ... an emotion he didn't dare name.” I really loved this line; it took Luke being captured for him to admit it (even though he won’t spell it out), but Vader loves his son.
Although I am sad to see their story line end, Val and Crix did get a good exit from the story here.
Me and my love of father-son genre (I call it popmance) really loved Vader tucking Luke in. It’s sweet.
And it ending with Luke calling Vader “father” and Vader calling Luke “son” was PERFECT.
As in Orphan, Threat was a masterpiece!

“Luke was so very innocent ... he was the best thing he had ever had a hand in creating. Yet, like everything good that came his way, he had driven him out.” It’s interesting to see Vader go through that “you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone” stage of loss.
“It took a good minute for Ben to be gently coaxed back into the room.” Like a frightened baby animal…. Actually, Ben’s pretty brave. Not many would actually choose to put themselves anywhere near Vader’s presence. Ben’s a good friend.
I was a little surprised to see the villain from Orphan back, though, and I cannot remember any hints to him being alive in earlier chapters. I guess that’s what Vader gets for not obtaining the body after he had plunged a lightstaber through it the first time.

Man, that fight between Luke and Vader—Luke telling Vader he hated him, and Vader telling Luke he never wanted to be a father—that was intense, with all that tension between them that’s been growing throughout the story thus far finally boiling over. I wonder what Padme would think about all this… What’s the saying though? Things tend to get worse before they get better.
From massacring all his dueling droids, to ruminating on his “failure” at fatherhood, Vader going through intense and extreme bouts of anger and guilt does his character justice.
And, the end of this chapter shows why its never a good idea to wander off with strangers.

"I will make sure he never sees this boy again," Vader said, tossing the databook aside in annoyance, "He is leading Luke astray." The “it’s not my child, it’s your child” response. It’s like the attribution effect, but especially for parents. Vader is, at the same time, a typical and atypical caregiver.
Hah! I loved Ben’s dad making a small violin reference!

I wonder if LJ did get to be assigned to a comedy club. He was a great OC. In either case, this chapter did give LJ a good exit from the series.
“The Emperor leaned back in the throne. He didn't seem so frightening anymore. If his mother supported him, like the HoloNet articles claimed, then maybe he wasn't so bad.” ….. “I only wish she were still alive today - she would cry tears of joy at the good we have managed to achieve." *face palm*
Wow….you have written the Emperor PERFECTLY. Actually, more than perfectly. Creepy, manipulative, all with that misleading gentle and frail demeanor.
“Perhaps he should talk to his master first - Luke's version of events could be highly distorted.” More like the Emperor’s version of events could be highly distorted.

“’I read it on the wall in the girl's refresher,’ came another voice.” The girl’s refresher? Huh. For some reason I think it’s humorous that made it as school bathroom graffiti. Probably because way back in my high school days, there was almost no bathroom graffiti, and it was usually the so and so loves so and so variety.
I loved how Lev so explicitly diverted Luke’s question about what a concubine is.
Spoiled, ill-mannered, rude, and of little intelligence? Geez... Though, Luke only taking issue with the bad manners part of the description was funny, in an exasperating kind of way. Seriously, Luke? That kind of reminded me of the time Leia called Han a scruffy-looking nerf-herder, and his response: “Whose scruffy looking?”
The last line of this chapter: depressing.
