I liked it...mostly.
Your premise and characterisation of Anakin are brilliant, and all in all, your writing is very good.
Which is why it's so frustrating when you insert Eiarté, the queen of all mary-sue that I felt like slapping every time she spoke; or when Anakin turns into a 16 year old girl whenever he interacts with Padmé.

Um I'm real curious as to how Anakin would acquire such knowledge when he lives in a dust bull plaent like Tatoinne that most likely doesn't have access to knowledge of such advance technology.

I love the condensed version of what happened to Anakin's life. For a moment I didn't believe it, it seemed far-fetched but then I reread this and I'm like okay I guess rejection made Anakin much more serious about being a Jedi and made him humble too. Though I wonder if the Jedi Counsel's decision to kick him out is going to come back to bite them. Seems like Anakin is holding on to a lot of resentment.

Ugh! Please update soon! PLEASE!
I have a number of scenarios that might happen in my head and it's making my head hurt!
I hope this fic turns real political soon, though apparently there's still the issue of war, unfortunately nobody besides Sidious seems to be interested in war anymore now that there's something more hotter, or cooler rather. Still they have to play along or Sidious would probably call on Order 66 and strive to take over the Republic by force especially with him being already the Chancellor. He could even lie to the people and say the new technology was actually a weapon and they need to destroy it! I wonder what he'll feel when he finds out that Anakin was the one who created the technology, will he try to kill him, or better yet try to control him in order to force Anakin to build weapons of mass destruction, considering he's a technological genius.
I still don't understand why Sidious didn't try to kidnap Anakin after the Jedi kicked him out?
What is Dooku going to do now? Are we going to see a different point of view of the Separatist where they are the good guys? Not really your traditional types but with Anakin technology why would they go to war? They could profit from his invention, then again they might try to profit from both, and they technology would bolster up their efforts to get more Star Systems to join the Confederacy. It'll be an interesting change if the Confederacy end up being another Rebel Alliance and somehow when everything's okay again they unite once more but this time with the Confederacy being the good guys. I want to see more of the Confederate Parliament.

I'm not entirely sure if Anakin really can do that, but it kind of makes sense that this one could since he lived most of his life not just fighting but building as well, and building for a purpose. Since he's more the inventor and fixer rather then the Jedi and the warrior, I guess using the force to visualize how a system works and using it to start it, would apply to him, since he's not too focused this time around to just use the Force for violence.
I really am curious about how that water technology works and what it really looks like. All you described was a pool with water flowing down from the walls. I really really want to know. Anakin using his engineering skills to build something so revolutionary and life saving is so awesome and we never got to see that, it's only as Vader that he uses his skill and that was only to make death weapons. I love this fic so much more because he creates something that would be opposite of his counterpart, and it's believable to because if Vader can be engineer to death weapons, I think he oversaw the makings of the Death Star, it stands that Anakin would be an engineer to life sustaining technology. I just wish I had an image of it.

I'm guessing you're making a pairing romance between Obi-Wan and Eirtae (that's a pretty name. I don't know how you come up with it). Why? Is it just for creative purposes or you're not much a fan of the pairings with Siri Tachi or Duchess Satine in canon books and show? Or did you just want to put a romance for Obi-Wan. One thing for sure, in your stories and in the canon, it seems like he has a things for fiery strong willed stubborn blonde woman lol.

I seriously seriously want this fic to continue because Anakin's psychology and his traumatized feelings about slavery is so interesting. I seriously want to see where you go with this. Please update!

Daaaaamn, you need to continue this sometime.

Wow. I'm spellbound. You've created such a rich society of freed slaves now scrabbling for survival. The water technology is wizard! The political interplay between everyone is intriguing. Thanks for writing and sharing!

I really hope that you continue this one day an economic war as opposed to the clone wars is quite interesting. It will throw the jedi for a loop and shift the war it to one of politics instead of open warfare. I dont think ive ever seen anyone write something like this.

This is one of the best AUs I have ever read. The scope of it is well written, and is the details! The thing that saddens me most terribly is the fact that you haven't updated in such a long time. Uwaa, that hurts my poor little heart. Haha.
Personally, the political ramifications with the water is great plot! I would love to see those for actually do something productive instead of trying to kill each other. XD Also,I always wanted to read something where Count Dooku is not just a bad guy, but is more grey.
Obviously,I want him and Anikin to succeed...
We, wanted to, at least. Although this might sound like a pitiful cry, please update soon!

You know- I try not to put stories on my favorites list when they're not complete. This story is the rare exception- but I would like to see it completed. It's been a while since you've updated. I once went four years between updates- but I eventually did finish my story. I have faith in you.
