Title: Anakin Skywalker's Redemption
Setting: Revenge of the Sith
Disclaimer: I do not own the characters or places. They belong to the creator of the Star Wars universe George Lucas. I use these characters with great respect. I only own the added characters. I also do not own the character from the Last of the Jedi and Jedi Quest series. Ferus Olin belongs to Jude Watson.
Author's Note 1: This story is inspired by the song called: "Savin' Me" by Nickelback. The music video is called: "The Fall of Anakin Skywalker" and it can be found on under videos or you can go to Google and type in lyrics for "Savin' Me". (If this video is still available I do not know. It's been awhile since I checked. I do know that Nickelback has a video for this song, but it's not Star Wars type) My story won't be exactly like the music video I saw. I am a true Star Wars fan at heart and when I saw this video I was thinking this would make a good story to write and I asked my best friend what she thought and she told me that it was a good idea. I had originally planned on calling this story "The Rise of Anakin Skywalker", but as I started going over the outline in my head the title just didn't fit so I asked my friend if I could borrow her title "Anakin's Redemption" from an older story that she revised so I combined his first and last name together and came up with "Anakin Skywalker's Redemption". (Title provided by Ashton) So I thank her for the advice and for helping me in sticky situations when I'm writing.
Summary: An alternate point of view in ROTS.
Author's Note 2: Before you even read this story, I highly recommend reading my sequel story that jedimaster4239 worked on with me on our trilogy story "Trials of the Force". I also suggest you read our three Clone Wars stories: "Roxanne's Confession", "Showdown on Kalee", and "Clone Wars: Repercussions" (a Mini Clone Wars Story). This story will mainly deal with Anakin and Roxanne. Anakin's love for Padme and Roxanne's love for Ferus along with what actually took place while adding in Roxanne's parts. I know I've written this before, but I've made this one better than before.
Short Introduction to Anakin Skywalker's Redemption
In the last chapter that was leading to this story we all know that Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker were going to rescue Chancellor Palpatine from General Grievous who kidnapped him from Coruscant. A Jedi Knight named Roxanne Keira Quin was with the Chancellor when he was kidnapped. The Jedi do not know that Count Dooku is the one behind this brilliant scheme to kidnap him in the first place. The fate of the galaxy is in the hands of Obi-Wan and Anakin to bring the Chancellor home safely and to rescue a Jedi Knight and rid the galaxy of the war that's been going on for the past three years now.
Chapter 1: The Hunt for General Grievous
Setting to Chapter 1: It's been three years since the Clone Wars began, and now we are officially in Revenge of the Sith. Obi-Wan and Anakin lead a space battle through Coruscant with the clones and they go inside the Invisible Hand to look for Jedi Knight Roxanne Keira Quin, but trouble ends find them along the way.
Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his former apprentice Anakin Skywalker are leading the Republic Clone troopers into the hyperspace battle of droids while searching for Grievous' ship known as the Invisible Hand.
Anakin was blasting the droids left and right and his astromech droid R2-D2 beeped.
"Lock onto him," Anakin answered while R2 beeped. "Master. General Grievous' ship is directly ahead. The one with vulture droids."
"Oh, I see it. Oh, this is going to be easy," Obi-Wan replied in a sarcastic like tone.
The vulture droids were talking to each other in droid language so you couldn't understand a word they were saying unless you speak their language. When they start squeaking and flying at your ship you know they mean trouble.
They break up and Obi-Wan noticed that they meant trouble so he got on his comlink and made contact with Oddball.
"Mark my position and form your squad up behind me," Obi-Wan ordered.
"We're on your tail, General Kenobi," Oddball replied and gave his trooper an order to follow.
The droid ship decided to drop off a load of buzz droids and Anakin smirked to himself and said, "This is where the fun really begins."
They allow the droids to pass between them.
A Clone Trooper got a load of droids on his tail and Anakin said, "I'm gonna go give them a hand."
"No," Obi-Wan said. "They are doing their job and we can do ours."
Droids continue to speak their own language and Obi-Wan muttered, "No wonder we're losing the war. They're getting smarter."
Obi-Wan performed a difficult move and he said, "Flying is for droids."
Next thing he knew was a nest of buzz droids decided to make his ship their home.
"I'm hit. Anakin?" Obi-Wan said.
"I see them," Anakin replied. "Buzz droids."
They start tearing Obi-Wan's ship apart like it was nothing but scrap metal and spare parts.
"R4, be careful. You have a-" Obi-Wan said, but the buzz droid ripped his R4 unit apart. "Oh, dear."
The droids tear apart the controls and Obi-Wan was not exactly what you would call calm. "They're shutting down all the controls."
"Move to the right so I can get a clear shot at them," Anakin replied calmly.
"The mission," Obi-Wan replied. "Get to the command ship and get the Chancellor. I'm running out of tricks here."
Anakin ignored him and went to attack.
Obi-Wan heard the buzz droids squealing and he felt his ship rock and said, "Oh! In the name of-"
Obi-Wan spotted Anakin's ship firing from out of nowhere and snapped, "Hold your fire! You're not helping here."
"I agree. Bad idea," Anakin admitted.
"I can't see a thing. My cockpit's fogging up," Obi-Wan said as he tried his best to control his ship.
"They're all over me. Anakin!" Obi-Wan said and spotted Anakin's ship beside his as he scraped some of them off.
"Move to the right," Anakin said.
"Hold on, Anakin. You're gonna get us both killed," Obi-Wan replied as he complied to Anakin's order.
Obi-Wan's ship beeped. "Get out of here. There's nothing more you can do."
'I'll make up something, 'Anakin thought frantically.
"I'm not leaving without you, Master," Anakin replied in a stubborn tone that Obi-Wan knew very well.
He scraped off a couple more and one of them decided to get on his ship and mess with R2-D2 as it stuck his needle out to R2.
"Get him, R2," Anakin ordered.
R2 fired and missed.
"R2, hit the buzz droid's center eye," Obi-Wan replied.
That droid was history.
"Yeah! You got him!" Anakin said.
"Great, R2," Obi-Wan commented.
"The general's command ship is dead ahead," Anakin replied.
Then shots begin to fire and R2-D2 squeals and Obi-Wan snapped, "Well, have you noticed the shields are still up?"
"Sorry," Anakin replied and blasted the shield generator and Obi-Wan added, "Next time you're the bait. Not me."
Anakin laughed and they entered the ship and walking droids began to fire and they blast them to oblivion.
"R2, locate the Chancellor," Obi-Wan said.
R2 went to a unit and plugged itself up and a map of the entire ship appeared and the tracking signal was not coming from Palpatine and Obi-Wan said, "It's coming from Shaak Ti's tracking signal."
"Maybe the Chancellor is with her," Anakin said.
"I don't think Grievous is that ignorant even for a droid," Obi-Wan replied. "I sense a trap."
"I sense Count Dooku," Anakin countered. "Next move?"
Obi-Wan arched an eyebrow and said, "Spring the trap and rescue Shaak Ti and Roxanne Quin."
"If Roxanne doesn't rescue us first," Anakin corrected as they headed down the hall.
"We don't know for sure that she's even here," Obi-Wan said.
Anakin reached out in the Force to feel for any sign of Roxanne's Force presence, but couldn't.
"Maybe, we'll see a sign of her handy work," Obi-Wan said and went down the elevator.
