The story until now.
Here's my vague take on it.
It starts with our intrepid hero (Anakin) getting sent on a scouting/mapping mission of the Unknown Regions while Obi-Wan is sent on a solo mission himself. Funnily enough, he stumbles on the planet Earth. Which he proceeds to visit. Upstate New York, in fact. And considering he's wandering around the town in his Jedi robes, well, he stands out. So this girl approaches him, her name is Kitty, and they start talking. And somehow, she ends up taking him back to Xavier's and introducing him to everybody. And pizza his had, and she shows him her power by sticking her hand through his lit lightsaber, and they kind of end up making out on the Danger Room floor at one point.
And of course, she invites him to stay with her while he's on the planet. And so he does. And much fun is had, she teaches him to play tag, he learns about Earth, there is lots of shagging. Lockheed doesn't like him, and in fact injures him in a sensitive area at one point. And unfortunately, finally, after a couple of weeks, the time comes that Obi-Wan calls him back to Coruscant. And he has to go.
But he doesn't want
to go. Not without Kitty. As they have both already professed love for one another. And so, idiot that he is, Anakin kidnaps her. Leaves a note for the X-men that she's going with him, and flies off with her. And again, idiot that he is, he manages to get them stranded on a little planet called Dathomir. They are promptly attacked by some rancors and separated. Kitty becomes an honorary member of the local tribe of Dathomiri Force-witches and Anakin finds himself their neweset slave. Luckily, for him, Kitty convinces them that Anakin is her
slave, so they at least get to stay together while Anakin works on fixing their ship so they can leave. After a few days of pretending servitude, the joke arose where Anakin would refer to Kitty as 'Mistress'.
Doesn't take too long, and they're off again, however, he had told Kitty about his mother and how she was still a slave on Tatooine, so Kitty insisted they make a side trip there to see/save her. And, a la Episode II, they get there just in time to find her dying at the hands of Tuskens. Except this time, Anakin isn't alone, Kitty is there, and she prevents him from at least killing two of the children, though he does slaughter the others in his grief/rage/trauma. And then, they actually head back to Coruscant.
Obi-Wan is furious with Anakin for being late and never comm'ing to say why. And very surprised at Anakin bringing back a 'friend'. They try, for a little while, to keep their relationship a secret, but Obi-Wan finds out. However, instead of hauling him up in front of the Council, he leaves that decision to Anakin and requests that Kitty come stay in the Temple (so Anakin wouldn't get caught sneaking out all the time to visit her, I suppose). There's lots of angst wherein Kitty and Anakin decide whether they should get married, as well as Kitty wishing Anakin wouldn't feel he had to keep this a secret.
Obi-Wan starts visiting Padme around now, partly to talk about Anakin, partly just to talk. They realise they're growing attracted. Nic or Mir will have to explain that more as I wasn't involved, just read the transcript.
Meanwhile, Kitty and Anakin almost go get married, but don't. And then Anakin makes some off-handed comment that has Kitty suddenly wondering if she's been taking birth control. When she realises she hasn't, and that they've been doing...things. She panics. He panics. They find out she's pregnant. Flailage ensues.
The Jedi Healers are ecstatic about getting to deal with a pregnancy. Somehow Kitty and Anakin manage not to let on (sort of) that Anakin is the dad. Much more angst ensues wherein realisation sets in that if they have to keep this a secret, Anakin can never truly be their father, they'll have to lie to their kids, they won't even get to have his name. Anakin goes and talks with Palpy a bit. Palpy doesn't actually help matters, though he seems to. Palpy suggests as well, that there are people who might wish to kill Kitty for the child she's carrying.
Conveniently enough, soon after, somebody tries to kill Kitty. Cue angry Anakin.
Kitty is sad, as well, cause she's far from home, pregnant, not married, and somebody's trying to kill her. So she spends a lot of time talking to people from home over the HoloNet. Anakin comes up with plot to get the X-men to Coruscant to visit. They bring presents for the future baby. Rachel lets slip that it's babies
. Twins. Anakin and Kitty stare in shock. And then proceed to have argument about something I can't quite remember. Probably about his non-decision to tell the Jedi about their relationship and be a real father. She storms off. Proceeds to get shot in the shoulder. Cue angry Anakin again. And then once bounty hunter is dealt with, he takes Kitty to the healers who take care of her, confirm the twin thing and cause Anakin to worry much more by talking about some of the complications that might arise from multiple-birth pregnancies.
X-men go home. Anakin finally gets up the nerve to tell the Council that the babies she's having are his. They are shocked. They say they must confer about this. Anakin and Kitty are beaming though, feeling much better.
Obi-Wan, meanwhile, is investigating this bounty hunter that was sent after Kitty. He finds a clone army. Gets stuck on Geonosis. The Jedi are called into help, that includes Anakin. Off they all go, save the day. Clone Wars start , Anakin loses an arm to Dooku. He angsts a lot about that when he gets back, not wanting Kitty to see it. She....puts his mind at ease about that. Soon after, they actually go and get married. And directly after they get married, Obi-Wan carts Anakin off on missions because the Council decides even though Anakin's breaking the Code he is A)the Chosen One and B) they need all the able-bodied Jedi they can get. He's not back for a few months and when he does, well, momma is showing! He's shocked. But. Yay! Babies!
Gets sent on more missions. Comes back. Missions. Comes back. Babies born, he gets to be there for it. Nearly gets his hand (mechanical one) squashed by Kitty. Then gets sent on missions again. Becomes a Knight, finally. Back. Forth. Back Forth. While he's on a mission, Kitty is kidnapped by anti-mutant people from Earth who do lots of bad stuff to her. Anakin returns to Coruscant to find her gone. He's Not Happy. Goes off to find her himself. Obi-Wan is sent to track him down. Anakin pretends to agree to work with/go back with Obi-Wan, instead tricks Obi and goes off to actually find/save Kitty, which he does, and kills all the bad guys in the process. She's a bit disturbed, as well as injured by said bad guys, so he gets her back. Council debates about whether or not he should be kicked out this
time. Meanwhile, Anakin has a chat with Palpy who tries to get him to turn to the Dark Side. He doesn't go for it, goes back to the Temple just in time for Obi to be like "dude, they're kicking you out and I agree with them" Anakin feels all betrayed, a bit of a fight/argument ensues, and he ends up going back
to Palpy and is all like "You were right, the Jedi suck, I wanna be a Sith now." Palpy is like "Good boy, now go kill all the Jedi." Which he does. Except for Obi who's not there. And then Kitty finds out and goes to talk to Padme who's all like "Girl, your man just went apeshit and killed all the Jedi, get the hell outta Dodge!" So Kitty does. And Anakin is. Well. Very very angry when he finds Kitty skipped town on him with the kids.
Fast forward six years. Anakin (who is really Vader now, but we're referring to him as Anakin for ease of reference) has found some intel that says Kitty is on Tatooine. Off to Tatooine he goes with his shiny Star Destroyer. He goes down to the planet, finds his former beloved, is all "I want the kids" and she's all "Fuck you" but uh, she ends up taking him to the kids anyway. Who are getting picked up from school by Obi. Anakin nearly kills Obi on the spot. But doesn't. Lots of arguing. Obi takes the kidlets home to make dinner. Kitty and Anakin stay and argue and uhm maybe have sex in the alleyway for some strange reason or other
. They all go and have a nice dinner with Obi and the kids. Anakin wonders a lot what the hell he thinks he's doing and why he doesn't just TAKE them.
He ends up convincing Kitty to return with him. Kitty tells Obi. Obi is sad/angry. Cause they're his kids too! dammit by this point. So Anakin taunts Obi. Obi basically tells him to fuck off and wanders out into the desert. The kids whine about not wanting to leave. Kitty goes and talks to Obi and tells him it's for the best and stuff. Obi is still not happy but now mostly sad as opposed to angry.
In the morning, they all leave on Anakin's shiny Star Destroyer which he orders to raze the coordinates of Kitty's old house so he has a legitimate explanation for Palpy as to why he went off to kill a Jedi and doesn't have a body to show for it. He also constructs a lightsaber that will pass for Obi's. Because he really doesn't want to explain why he was close enough to kill his former Master and didn't.
They get to Coruscant. Kids are sad. But they get bribed, Leia with shopping and Luke with Anakin's hangar. And uhm. I'm running out of steam, so Mir can pick up or something. Or fill in the spots I forgot. Current Mood: blah
