Star Wars: Remix version
Summary: What if Anakin Skywalker had been hit by a blaster shot instead of hiding in the Cockpit? What if Obi-Wan had never promised to train Anakin? What if Anakin never became a Jedi? All of those questions will be answered, in this remixed story of Star wars episodes one through 6 and beyond.
I am rewriting the story based on a review I got. I hope it will please people better.
"Anakin, hide" Qui-Gon Jinn shouted when they entered the hangar. There was blaster fire all around as Anakin searched for a safe place to hide. He ran to a large stone pillar, and tried to hide behind it, but he was a moment too late and a blaster shot hit him in the side, causing him to double over in pain. He bit his lip to keep from crying out. He didn't want to worry anyone. R2 Beeped at him shrilly.
"I know R2, but they're busy right now" he said in a whispered voice. R2 was not convinced and he let out a series of beeps. "I'll be fine" Anakin reassured the worried droid. "Go and help the others get into the throne room." R2 beeped and left the spot. Anakin kept a hand close to his side and leaned back against the pillar. He could hear a lot of shouting, but he was slowly losing consciousness. Finally his eyes closed and he slumped into a heap on the stone floor. When the hangar bay was completely quiet, R2 rolled back to the spot where he had left Anakin and started beeping shrilly, but of course, no one could hear him.
"Now Viceroy, we will discuss a new treaty" Padme Amidala informed him harshly. They had succeeded in locking the viceroy in the throne room. Captain Panaka held the Viceroy at blaster point.
"What do you have to say for yourself?" Panaka asked angrily. The viceroy still said nothing. Just then they heard R 2-D2 whistling from outside the door. His whistles were shrill and frantic. Padme looked towards the captain who nodded for her to open the doors. She opened the doors and it was clear that R2 was frantically trying to tell her something. Unfortunately she couldn't understand the small droid. Just than a translation droid entered the room.
"C-46, can you tell me what R2 wants?" she asked. C-46 listened to R2 for a moment.
"He says that there is a wounded boy in the aircraft hangar, and he needs immediate attention" C-46 told her. Padme paled. She knew she couldn't leave until they discussed things with the viceroy. She turned to one of her handmaidens.
"Rabe', go down to the aircraft hangar and find Anakin. Bring him up here" she instructed. Once Rabe was gone and the doors were once again locked, Padme turned to the viceroy.
"Do you realize what you've done?" she asked. The Viceroy remained silent, which infuriated Padme.
Rabe' hurried to the hangar and found the pale boy lying blood oozing from a wound in his chest. She gently picked him up and carried him to the medical lab. Several medical droids were waiting expecting injured people to come in during all of the chaos, but none of them expected to see an unconscious boy.
"Please help him" She said, laying Anakin onto the table. The droids got to work quickly, hoping to save the young boy's life. "Bring him to the throne room when you are done" Rabe' instructed.
Jar Jar Binks was ready to surrender to the battle droids, when they started falling apart. The gungan general beside him declared that the control ship orbiting the planet had been destroyed. The gungans cheered loudly. Jar Jar hoped that his new friends had been able to stop the Viceroy. He also hoped that no one at the palace had gotten hurt.
Back at the palace, Padme sat in the throne room watching the viceroy and waiting for the senator ship to arrive and pick him up. Anakin was lying on a pull out bed beside her. The droids had given him a sleeping draught to ease the pain. Obi-Wan entered at that moment and he was carrying Qui-Gon Jinn's body.
"Is he dead?" Padme asked. Obi-Wan nodded gravely. Tears filled Padme's eyes. Qui-Gon had been a loyal friend and she would miss him deeply.
"The Sith that attacked us is dead, but Qui-Gon died in the process" Obi-wan told her.
"Do you know who it was?" Padme asked. Obi-wan shook her head as his gaze landed on Anakin.
"What will happen to him?" she asked following his gaze. Obi-wan sighed.
"He is of no use to the council. They have not granted him the rights to become a Jedi. More or less, he will most likely have to work in a cargo ship or take a charter ship back to Tatooine." Padme looked shocked.
"He is just a boy" she exclaimed. "How you could even suggest such a thing is beyond me. Can't you take him?" Neither one noticed that Anakin was awake and staring at them. The pain in his side seemed to torture him, saying 'look at what you did in coming here. No one wants you'. Tears filled his eyes as he surveyed the scene in front of him.
"Your Highness, I can't take him because I will soon be searching for my own Padawan learner." Obi-Wan explained. Padme sighed.
"I'm sorry?" She apologized. "I just don't want him to be somewhere where he will be treated badly"
"Do you know where else he can go?" Obi-Wan asked. Padme was silent for a moment, than a smile lit up her entire face.
"I have an idea" Padme went on. "I just hope that my handmaidens and my court will accept it". Just then there was a sudden knock on the door. "Come in" Padme called. Chancellor Palpatine entered the room.
"Am I interrupting anything?" he asked curiously.
"No Chancellor. Is the ship ready for the viceroy?" Padme asked.
"Yes, Your Highness" Palpatine informed her. Two guards came in and grabbed the viceroy. Padme turned and saw that Anakin was awake. It hurt to see the expression of loneliness on his face. She held out her hand and he took it. They followed the guards out to the ship.
"Now Viceroy, you're going to have to go back to the senate and explain all this" Padme said sternly. The Viceroy ignored her as he was taken onto the ship. Padme watched the ship take off. She turned to Obi-wan and sighed sadly.
"I will miss you Obi-wan" She said softly. "You and Qui-Gon were a great help to my people." Obi-wan smiled at her gently.
"And I will miss you, but perhaps we will meet again someday, another time and place" He turned and headed to his ship. Padme turned and led Anakin back into the palace.
