I'm surprise that Luke is already on his way. When I read Padme delivering the news, I was actually half-expecting Anakin to start screaming with joy like in the HISHE parodies, it would have shown that Anakin having embracing his emotions as a Sith than keeping it under check as a Jedi.
In any case, if we're going to be having Anakin as the main POV from now on, I suggest that we see some of his hatred to the Jedi be warranted through action rather than word. I agree that the Jedi at times, though are peacekeepers, are super-powered monks that prefer to maintain the status-quo. If their definition of peace is achieved, then they prefer inaction, leaving those suffering in these times of 'peace' harbor a deep hatred towards them.
Especially after they left the Republic in shambles (which I'm glad you acknowledge in the fic's summary), I would like to see some more examples of people hating the Jedi, not just Anakin. You know what? I can actually believe the Republic having a legitimate reason to unite into the Empire, like a dying phoenix reborning anew.

Not sure if I'm enjoying this story, especially compared to TQDNNTK. Anakin the overpowered whiny manchild is not a particularly compelling main POV character. Darth Vader has depth in that he's filled with rage, but tempered and tormented by regret, and it makes it all the more surprising when he has a rare moment of compassion or introspection. This version of Anakin is just a douche.

I am so here for our trip driving Anakin insane . And wow he is such a huge dick

Oof! The dramatic irony in that last line! Correction Obi Wan: you would have been brothers...still very sad.
Luke (and Leia) will be here soon! Yay!
Good work! I find this new Anakin very scary. Something about him still containing all of Anakin geniuty and all of his Darth Vader power...

I'm loving this... what I didn't exactly get was how Plagueis obtained some of the info about Rey being a Time Traveller.
Are there more moles in the Jedi Order?
Also, nice introduction for the story. I'm hoping this keeps being updated.

I like this story or the first one, and the rest of your works (you should update the rest of your works!) but I wonder, whats the point of this story? If Anakin has no one on the same power level, any fights will be uninteresting and ultimately the story will end predictably. Will all the heroes fall and meet a terrible fate? Could you let me know, because I am not interested in a story like that, especially when if that is the case, it's obvious from the start

Damn anakin is kinda controlling and manipulative I knew he was a with but still this is creepy

Oh, how I loved this chapter. I almost, almost, feel bad for Vader. He's trying to cope, but poor socialization skills strike once again. I am most certainly looking forward to seeing the next chapter.

Anakin isn't my favorite character, this incarnation at the least holds my attention. He's well written with complex motivations, I have a feeling that Rey is going to seduce yet another Sith to the Light, or at least the Grey.

while I love your story, man I hope you kill Anakin off. He is not Vader, he is still his whiny bitchy woe is me emo kid, not the Sith Lord Vader was. I hate Anakin but love Vader, he just does not have that presence Vader has. Anakin is more like a petulant child who throws a temper tantrum when he does not get what he wants and feels like the galaxy owes him, when he is owed nothing. His suffering was nothing compared to what others go through.

I think the part where you say no one is even a tenth of his level is really overselling him, even with Plageus as a master probably being an infinitely better teacher than Palpy, especially since making him too powerful will likely lead to any combat scenes involving him being either a foregone conclusion or a level of absurdity that it undercuts the tension. But I still enjoyed the chapter and look forward to the rest of the story immensely.

Augh, it hurts so much to see Vader!Anakin. We're getting a character that is almost Anakin, talks like him, has some of his opinions, and even acts like him, but is this dark, twisted version of him. I guess this is what RotS Obi-Wan and Padme saw.

Loving the Anakin perspective!

I love your stories! I'm so glad to be reading this story. Heck, no, I'm HONOURED to be able to read this! Your characterizations are incredible, accurate, and believable. Despite how different they can be from canon, it's realistic in the changed circumstances you introduce. This is only chapter one, but if the prequel you wrote was anything to go by, this is going to be a most epic journey for everyone!
And my goodness, what a plot you are brewing. Poor Kryze. And poor Padmé and Obi-Wan. I hope they get a happy ending. I do ship Obi-Wan and Padmé (I blame Nauze) but they make a lovely pair. At the end of your last story, when you introduced Anakin, it was such a heart attack! In a good way! In my head I imagined Anakin telling the readers, "Did you forget me?" And grinned in a sinister way. :')
I'm so happy and excited to see how this plays out. No matter what, Apples, please never be disheartened or give up. You have such incredible talent. You take your readers on a visual journey and adventure, through words. There are few people in the world who can do that, and you are one of those few!
I just want you to know that you are an inspiration to me, a benchmark and standard that I aspire to, when it comes to writing. Believe in yourself as I believe in you. You rock!
