Proof that Vader hasn't 'completely' given to the Dark Side.

How can he be in total darkness..when he still feels the Light of Love?

Thanks, Natalie!

It was available as a limited edition print at the last Star Wars Celebration. They sold out, but you can still occasionally find one on eBay ....

:icondarthvaderplz: *suit breathing as he rubs her tomb* "Padme....." *kneels at her grave* "Please.... forgive me..... all I wished was for us to be together.... to save you. I am so sorry....."

:iconpadmeplz: "Do not blame yourself for this.... for it is not your fault." *her shining spirit stands before Vader and her hand touches his own*

:icondarthvaderplz: *he looks up to her, his sit breathing as he looks to her* "Padme..... but how?"

:iconpadmeplz: "Stand, my love..." *she smiles to him as he rises, still holding his hand*

:icondarthvaderplz: "I am so sorry...."

:iconpadmeplz: "Stop...... As I said, this is not your doing. All that you have done....all that you have become...it is neither your doing, nor Palpatine's....but it is the will of the Force. You ARE bringing balance to the Force, whether you know it or not....Anakin. You may be in the dark and you've done things that have changed you greatly.... but it will not stay this way. You ARE the Chosen One, my love. You're part in the Force is not over yet." *she begins to take off Vader's helmet and mask* "You may be Darth Vader now.....but you will not always be Vader......Stay strong.... and if you find yourself in the dark again, think of me. And once your part is done....we will be together again. I love you."

:icondarthvaderplz: *suit breathing* ".......Yes, my love."

:iconpadmeplz: *kisses him on the forehead and disappears while hugging him*

Thank you! I imagine that's what Padme would say if she visited Vader as a spirit. Or if Vader visited her grave.

The Emperor lied to Vader. He didn't kill Padme. She just died of a broken heart.

That actually made me cry... beautiful words. :clap: 
And your right, the Emperor to him, Vador only wanted to love and protect his wife from dying from childbirth. The guy didn't know that the Emperor was the badguy--I don't blame Vador for turning into the dark side because he was brainwashed...

Yea, I don't blame him, either. After all, wouldn't we all go Dark Side if it means that the ones we loved were safe?

Yup.

Despite being evil and all, you just can't help but feel really sorry for him. After all, he lost his wife, his mentor and best friend, his apprentice, his mother, the man who freed him, he's practically Palpatine's slave and not to mention that his daughter hates his guts and his son is always running away from him. Poor guy :(

Love it! It is exactly like me of the stroy "One Half Of A Beating Heart" by lazypadwan on fanfiction.net

"... Vader entered the gate and walked down steps into a series of tombs for past monarchs. At last he found what he had been seeking.

There was a beautiful stained glass piece that allowed light from above the ground, a representation of her as an eternally-young queen. The sarcophagus itself was framed by two pots filled with fresh flowers. The lid was embossed with the royal sigil.

There was silence in the tomb but for Vader's regulated breathing.

He reached out and placed his hand on the sarcophagus. It tore at him that they were separated by cold stone and a protective suit. Separated by death and artificial life. Each of us encased in our own tombs. And the child he had never known, forever with her..."
