Author has written 3 stories for Star Wars.

Greetings my fellow Jedi and Sith friends, I am Empress Vader.

I am new to this whole fanfic writing business as you can tell from my first story : The Battle Within.

I fell in love with the Character Darth Vader when I was 8 years old and as such the majority of my stories will be centered around him and his 'adventures'. I truly love the tragedy that was Anakin Skywalker, not to mention that damn was he hot, and not just in the Mustafar sense either.

I currently have "The Battle Within" in progress which explores his struggles within himself after finding Padmè and Obi wan after 5 years of his immolation. In this story he wasn't burned by the lava, nor did he lose his limbs. Obi wan still won, stabbing him through the chest with his lightsaber. After several long months and 42 chapters the story is finally drawing to a close. But in its wake new stories will surface.

So, a quick little update.

In Development:

Sequel to the Battle Within (plot still under construction)


Plot completed. Under construction...

Epilogue to drop in coming weeks. (DELAYED)

Blood Betrayal.

Set 10 years post Order 66. He is confined to his suit in the canon condition.

Darth Vader wakes up after being severely.injured in battle with amnesia. His mind has reverted back to that of the Jedi Anakin Skywalker. Confronted by his master, Darth Sidious (or Palpatine as he now remembers him to be) the Sith Lord is told how he was betrayed by his former Jedi Master and his wife in a bid to get rid of him. He informs him that the child Padmè carried was in fact Obi wan's and that they had been secretly seeing each other behind his back. Fuelled by rage and despair he sets out to track down his old master and destroy him once and for all. Only to find his adulterous wife living with the Jedi on a backwater planet, raising their two children. Blinded by a jealous rage, Vader captures Padmè, the twins and Obi wan determined to exact his revenge. Dark and twisted story, with no happy ending. Not a redemption fic. (Plot completed, story under construction.)

Carpe Tenebrae

(Seize the Darkness)

Follows Darth Vader in the canon condition. He finds his wife during a mission and takes her back to the palace with his master. During their time together, his loyalty to his master is questioned by an outside force, making him doubt everything his master has taught him. Is a dark story, and carries trigger warnings, for those who are affected by topics such as torture and abuse.

Rise of the Apprentice

Sequel to Carpe Tenebrae

Currently in progress...

This one is taking a little while to get off the ground. Being my first sequel, I am being faced with new challenges.

But I know the perseverance will pay off. So bear with me and ride the gentle waves as we slowly build back up to pace, because once it gets started, it won't slow down.
