From a Certain Point of View
Miriné Katina has never been normal. An orphan and a refugee of the Trade Federation's occupation on Naboo, she catches the attention of the recently elected Chancellor Palpatine not only for her unparalleled beauty and wit, but for her untapped strength in the Force. From the moment he meets her, he is determined to make her completely his, for she alone possesses the power to change the future to his advantage. His greatest mistake is that he underestimates just how powerful she truly is.
A humble attempt to explain the change from the old EU to the new and to answer everyone's biggest question after TROS: who did Palpatine f**k?
Erratically updated but not yet dead, I promise.

A generation has passed since the elusive Empress Miriné disappeared. The Empire has fallen, and the New Republic has taken its place. In the shadows, however, the First Order bides its time as it prepares to launch the first strike of the next galactic war. Within its ranks are a young, timid ensign running from her past, a captain whose beauty and impeccable record have brought her far more attention than she bargained for, a frustrated scholar with dreams of becoming an ace pilot, and a woman with no last name whose origins are as mired in mystery as she is. None of them are what they seem, and when war breaks out, they must define themselves and decide what it is they are truly fighting for.
Note: This is a sequel to Jewel of the Empire but is still enough of a self-contained story to be read on its own. I have plans to update both works so that neither one spoils the other.
