Fic: The Hidden Face--Prologue: The Kavenya

Well, I started out writing a story of Padmé coming to Tatooine again after TPM, trying and failing to buy Shmi, and then talking to her for awhile, during which time she learned a bit about Shmi's culture, and found the basis for Leia's name (I would have done Luke's later). It was Padmé looking for the honorific I was asking about. But I realized as I wrote it that the whole thing was likely to be nothing but a frame for a story I started two or three years ago on the TFN forums and never finished, and that was the story I really meant to tell. So I'm going to post what I had of that (in digestable sections, I hope), and maybe later write a frame where Padmé learns at least parts of it. Telos of Crion is from Jude Watson's JA books, in which his son, Xanatos, was Qui-Gon's first padawan.

EDIT IN: I've added chapter 1 above, and will keep track of the story at the Table of Contents.

Fic: The Hidden Face--Chapter 1: Akris

I made another bad photomanip, of Shmi at around the age she is in this chapter. 'Cause I felt like it.

Table of Contents and Summary So Far (Hey, that looks familiar... this isn't going to be as long as Shifts but I figured I might as well start keeping a TOC early on).

I petered out in the third section of this chapter, which I'll finish tonight, then I'll go to regular section posting, and hope I won't peter out again. I have to work up a plan of action.
