The talented Firedanceryote drew this as a gift for me, inspired by my fanfic Deception in Starlight. Click to view the full-size version.

By the way: I'll be posting LOTS of fanfiction here before after the new year, as soon as finals are over.
Here's a magnificent drawing of our favorite couple kissing. Even if I didn't like the pairing, I would have to admit it's beautiful. Go take a look for yourself, and shower the artist with compliments.

This used to be available on StarWars.com. It's gone, but there is a published version.

The story is set during the first season of The Clone Wars (TV show), before the episode "Destroy Malevolence" (1.04). See below for screencaps of the relevant two pages, on which Chancellor Palpatine meets with Senator Amidala in his office and sends her on a supposed diplomatic mission.

'My most prized diplomat and trusted colleague...'Collapse )
Star Wars fans often talk about how Palpatine "seduces" Anakin to the dark side, in the "lead astray" sense. His more subtle seduction of Padmé is no less fascinating. Here's an excerpt from an essay by ami-padme at the Saga Journal:

For instance, in The Phantom Menace, Palpatine leads an unknowing Padmé astray as he maneuvers her into taking a critical step in his scheme to rule the Galactic Republic. His discussions with her upon her arrival to Coruscant are designed to lead her to the conclusion that a no-confidence vote is her planet's best chance of gaining the government's help with the recent invasion. During the session in the Senate chamber, Palpatine drives his point home with a few careful and well-placed words to Padmé, as she watches the Chancellor fail to act. The imagery of this scene evokes a clear image of the devil -- Palpatine whispers in Padmé's ear much as the devil, in the guise of a snake, whispers to Eve as she considers whether to eat the fruit in the Garden of Eden.

Another parallel: in the same way the devil makes Eve his intermediary to bring about Adam's downfall, Palpatine seduces Padmé first, and through her, Anakin. She is the reason they meet and the reason Anakin joins him. On the landing platform on Coruscant in TPM, Padmé invites Anakin to follow her – and Palpatine, whom she is following to his apartment. And in Revenge of the Sith, she is the reason Anakin joins Palpatine and the dark side ("I will do whatever you ask. Just help me save Padmé's life.").

I can't believe some people say that the prequels aren't deep or subtle or that they lack the timeless classical themes found in the original trilogy. Were they watching the same movies?
We are currently the only ACTIVE Palpatine community on LiveJournal! Let's hope it's going to stay this way. *wink*

Today I bring you several meta posts discussing the Palpatine-Amidala relationship in the Star Wars films and novels (see our profile page for some of the best canon quotes about them).

- Two blog posts by chameleon_irony focusing on Padmé and Palpatine's influence on her in James Luceno's Darth Plagueis and Jude Watson's Episode I Journal: Queen Amidala

- The Queen's Sacrifice, by Mandy: an interesting theory about what killed Padme

- Palpatine the Planner Meets Padme the... Bait, by DarklordZor
Title: Hellfire
Rating: Teen
Era/timeline: post-Revenge of the Sith AU
Pairing: This part is gen (well, mostly... technically), but future chapters will contain Palpatine/Padmé as a pairing.
Warning: torture
Summary: Padmé did not die. She is the Emperor's secret prisoner, and he wants more than an apology for the times she thwarted his plans. He will not be satisfied until he rules her completely – mind, body, and soul. Will she fall into his sinister trap?
A/N: Another one-shot that will eventually be turned into a longer fic. Written for dark_fest. Way more creepy than my last story.
Also on fanfiction.net. Can be considered a sequel to A Promise of War.

Title: Deception in Starlight
Rating: PG for dark themes
Pairing/Characters: This can be read as gen or as Palpatine/Padmé romance. I haven't decided which it is. Also contains mentions of Anakin.
Warning: creepiness
Summary: He always enjoyed possessing beautiful things. A snapshot of the relationship between Chancellor Palpatine and Senator Padmé Amidala before the war, from his point of view.
Era/timeline: This happens in year eight of the decade we don't see in the movies – the decade between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, between "Together, we will bring peace and prosperity to the Republic" and "The thought of losing you is unbearable".
Author's Note: A one-shot that may eventually become the prologue of a novel-length story.
Also on fanfiction.net.
