Anakin Skystrider-The beginning

Chapter Text

It was said that the Chosen One was the human born to a woman on the desert world of Tatooine. He, like his mother, was a slave, working for a Toydarian named Watto. At age of nine, he left his mother behind, promising that he would free her when he returned. His name was Anakin Skywalker.

Unfortunately, when he came back after he began to suffer nightmares, he learned that she was free and captured by the Sand People. She died in his arms and he slaughtered the entire tribe, sparing no one in his lust of vengeance.

He then married his childhood crush, Padme Amidala Naberrie after the first Battle on Geonosis. Only their droids were present as the Jedi were not permitted to have relationships. Padme also did not want that Anakin was expelled because of her. Sadly, their marriage ended in tragedy.

Three years later, the Supreme Chancellor Palpatine was kidnapped by the vicious cyborg named General Grievous. Anakin and Obi-Wan were the ones to rescue Palpatine. During the rescue, Anakin killed Count Dooku, despite that the latter was the unarmed prisoner.

After they returned to Corusant, Anakin learned that Padme was pregnant. He was very overjoyed, but it was shortlived. He began experiencing nightmares of her dying in childbirth. Not wanting this to happen, he sought help, only for Palpatine to offer it, in exchange becoming his apprentice. Palpatine was a Sith Lord named Darth Sidious.

Thus, Anakin betrayed the Jedi by killing Mace Windu and became Darth Vader. He then marched onto the Jedi Temple and spared no one, not even younglings.

From Obi-Wan, Padme learned of this and followed him to Mustafar, trying to knock him back to senses, but it was for naught. Obi-Wan appeared in the wrong time possible, causing Anakin to accuse his wife of betraying him. He Force-Choked her and engaged his former Master into a duel.

The duel lasted until the lava river shore, where our story begins.

"It's over Anakin. I have the high ground," Obi-Wan said.

Anakin or Vader stood on the platform that floated on the lava river and said: "You underestimate the power of the Dark Side."

"Don't try it."

Vader in anger leapt off of the platform to kill Obi-Wan, but his former Master reacted faster. He sliced off all of Anakin's remaining flesh limbs as his former fell onto the ground slided down to near lava river.

"Obi-Wan!" he shouted.

"You were the Chosen One! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them!" Obi-Wan began as he picked up Anakin's lightsaber. "You were my brother, Anakin. I love you, but I won't help you."

Anakin then screamed "I hate you!" as his clothes caught fire from the lava river nearby. Obi-Wan walked away as Anakin was left to die by his former Master, whom he saw as a father.

"What have I done!? Why, why I have allowed the Chancellor to manipulate me?! He, he is the one who turned me against Obi-Wan and Padme. I wish... I wish I could correct all of this, but now, I can't. Alas, I will leave it to the survivors. Mother, Padme and Obi-Wan, I am so very sorry..." Anakin thought as he took his last breath and closed his eyes.

Unknown to him, this was not the end of his story, but the beginning of the new one, the one that was to change his fate in a different direction.

 

As the Chosen One died, the Bronze Dragons of Azeroth roared in anger. They were the guardians of time and destiny led by the stoic, honourable Nozdormu, or the Timeless One. They resided in the Caverns of Time in the desert of Tanaris in the continent called Kalimdor.

"This was not meant to happen," one of Bronze Dragons spoke.

"The Chosen One's fall to the Dark Side and death. That was not his fate," another Dragon agreed.

"It is all the fault of the Sith," the third one said.

"And the Jedi."

"Yes, those so proclaimed peacekeepers. They made the Chosen One lost with their demands and scrutiny and he turned to the Sith as the result, since he befriended Palpatine, who seduced him to the Dark Side in the end.

"The Chosen One was meant to restore the balance and live happily with his Angel, instead they were both murdered by the Sith."

"We cannot allow this to continue while the Sith live. None of the remaining Jedi is strong enough and the Chosen One's children are dead because of Darth Vader and his Force-Choke against the Naboo Angel."

"We can still change the outcome, by allowing the Chosen One to live a life he deserved. He shall be reborn. The slave mother was chosen by the Sith, not by the Force. His life as the fallen Jedi will end now," Nozdormu said as his fellow Bronze Dragons roared and prepared to change the fate of the Chosen One.

The Force heard their decision and agreed to help them. She also knew that the Chosen One deserved a different life. Thus, she went back in time and helped the Bronze Dragons to shape the Chosen One's destiny in the way as he would want it to be from the beginning.

 

Anakin felt the cooling wind blowing onto his skin. He was confused, didn't he just die? How did he feel the wind then? He was also confused about his surroundings, as he heard birds chirping and shuffling of the feet. He also could catch the scent of food from afar.

He barely could see, but he did make out that it was nearly a night-time because of the moonlight. He also looked around and could see toys and the rocking chair. He also could see a mat, a dresser and other objects, including a bookshelf.

But it was the night-time, and Anakin felt very tired, so he fell asleep. Maybe in the morning, he could have the answer to the only question he had-where the hell he was?

 

By the morning, Anakin woke up again and felt that he was resting on something soft and warm. Or over him, actually. That was not right, he was dead and lying on the ground next to the lava river, not under something soft and warm.

He opened his eyes and saw that he was in the same structure. It was apparently divided by the curtains. In the distance, he could see a bow, two swords and a set of armour.

"Is this an outpost of some kind?" Anakin thought as he looked around. He then sat up and found that he was in the crib. What the hell was going on here? He was twenty-three, why he was in a crib?

He then felt his stomach grumble. It was a very long time since he last ate, so he decided to try to climb out of the crib to look for food. Maybe the locals could help, after all, he could be on the uncharted world. This also rose another question-How did he get wherever he was?

He tried to stand up by grabbing the railings for the support with his right hand. But sadly, he could not reach it.

'Why in the name of the Force I can't reach the railings and stand up?! Am I still limbless? I will call for help then," he thought.

As he opened his mouth to speak, only baby cries came out of it. This made Anakin realize that he was a baby or a toddler, not an adult. As he cried for help, someone began waking up nearby.

"Coming, Ani, coming. What's wrong?" a female voice asked.

"Who is she? And how does she know my nickname?" Anakin thought as he waited for the one, to whom the female voice belonged.

She then came to the crib and Anakin was astonished by her appearance. She was a Near-Human with blonde hair, blue eyes, long eyebrows and ears. She wore a blue robe, which Anakin assumed was her sleep clothing. She also wore earrings, but they were hidden by the hair.

She then picked him up and cuddled him. "Ani, shhh, it's okay, my little one, I'm here. It's alright," she said as she rocked him.

Anakin surely had a lot of questions but had no way of speaking them out. So he was going to observe and figure out things on his own, or through her. He was then placed into what looked like a playpen.

"I'll be swiftly back," she said as she left towards the kitchen.

Anakin then looked around and found a mirror. He was astonished when he saw his reflection. He still resembled his younger self but had similar ears and eyebrows as she did, which meant that he was a Half-Human in this new life. He had to find out what species she was.

"At least I have my limbs back," he thought as he smiled.

However, he saw that his hands were of the baby's and realized that he was a very young child. But how old was he then?

Soon enough, she came back and picked him up. She then kissed him as she carried him to the chair, which was elevated to be high enough for Anakin to reach the table. There was a plate with bread and jam.

"There, my little Half-Elf, we will have breakfast, then we will have a walk. What do you say, my son?" she said as she sat down to have her breakfast.

That took Anakin off-guard. Not only he was a toddler, but he also had a different mother, and mainly, he was a Half-Elf. This already sounded like a second chance. Which meant that he could correct all the wrongs and stop Palpatine and have his vengeance against the Sith Lord. He could also reunite with Padme and so much possibilities.

But he would think about that when he was much older, as now, he was going to explore his new life and see the new world that he was in. After all, he was now a young Half-Elf and somehow he had a feeling that his plans for the future could change.

 

The Bronze Dragons roared in triumph as they saw that their work succeeded.

Nozdormu flew to the Chosen One's new home and spoke from the above:

"You deserve a better life that you had as a Jedi and a slave, the young one. You shall destroy the Sith, but they will not be able to manipulate you to do their bidding. The Jedi will see that the Chosen One is not a weapon, but a person that has emotions. But I will now let you live a life that you deserve. We shall meet in the future," the noble Dragon said as he then flew off back to the Caverns of Time.
