sadness. but at the same time, not.

I love the atmosphere you created, the loneliness and the hopelessness Luke was feeling that seems to have led him to this discovery that is happy but melancholy at the same time. I love that Luke feels home is wherever Leia is, and it's an interesting idea that they had different birthdays so weren't sure which was real. Finding out the truth is possibly the best gift ever, but it's so tragic too. Luke wondering why their mother didn't live for them is heartbreaking. (I still don't understand how she died of a broken heart and am much less forgiving than they are-but of course she wasn't *my* mother.) But I think your explanation for how Leia remembers her, and why the droids never said anything about their parents is as good an explanation as any.
I hope that in the new canon Luke and Leia find out or have found out who their mother is. If not I'll pretend this happened because it's really beautiful.

An interesting idea, but it would have been really stupid and probably fatal to the cause to leave any recording of those events. Force-users have a talent for finding and uncovering things others would want to hide.

That was very sweet and touching. Probably would have been more so if you had ended at Luke leaving the asteroid, but I still enjoyed it.

I LOVED this so much!
My favorite line was this: "Yes, I'm aware that you're not programmed to be a shopping catalog. No, I'm not about to ask Threepio."
This is going in my favorite's!

Yet another emotional tale that pulls at the heart strings reading it. It would have been nice if the Movies had shown something for closure about their Mom. The closest of course was Leia's remembrances in ROTJ, but this story provides something quite a bit better.

Aw, that was really cute. I liked Luke's reaction to seeing Padme, and his questions about why he couldn't remember her but Leia could...

This is wonderful!
I love the idea of Luke finding the holo of Padme. I always enjoy fics in which they learn more of their mother. It would be wonderful if you could continue this some time with them learning more about Padme. :)

So incredibly glad I found your stories. They've been a great amusement. From one author to another, I salute you.
