Great story, I liked the way you balanced following the well-traveled path of the game plot while working in AU and other creative elements to make it fresh.
I actually agree with the ending as you did it. I like a happy ending as much as anyone, but not all stories are meant to have happy endings, or to even have all loose ends tied up nice and neat. I agree completely that after Revan left her yet again after Kataar that she was done with him, but I tend to think she'd have fallen back into the Jedi mindset of no attachments rather than settling down with someone else. Sometimes when you lose your one true love there is no replacing it. But it's not a big deal, I think Revan & Bastila happily ever after would have been the ending that was the most problematic given the way the story went.
My only story complaint would be that the end felt pretty rushed. That might sound like a weird thing to say about a 150K word story, but it really feels like you ran out of gas towards the end and just pushed it through to completion to get it done. I say that because the last several chapters are mainly summarizing large periods of time without much detail, such as covering the timeline of all of KotOR II in 2-3 chapters.
I know this is a 4 year old story that you probably haven't read back through in ages, but I figured I'd give a review anyway since I finished reading it. It would have been even better without the rather pathetic self-indulgent diatribes in the author notes in the last couple of chapters. Ending an epic story by basically telling your readers to go eff themselves? Nice... If the idea was to leave the reader bitter at you personally rather than bitter at the ending of the story, then you succeeded brilliantly -lol-

Well, you certainly have a way with writing a tragedy. I thought that this story was fantastic, although I'm probably gonna need to cheer myself up later. But first, the sequel.
Great job, I hope you can finish, The Power of Choice soon.
