Fan Fic / Heart of Darkness

Go To

An Alternate Universe Fic in which Vader discovers Leia is his daughter when she is ten years old and takes her to train her, take revenge on Sidious and rule the galaxy. Leia takes his ambitions to heart and meets up with and influences every character and aspect of the original trilogy. Quite realistic with character changes that happen gradually and the characters stay true to themselves even under different circumstances.The story may be found here at



  • Commonality Connection: Vader and Leia initially bond over their shared interest in mechanics.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Leia becomes this fairly rapidly, after she discovers her true parentage.
  • Dead Fic: Probably. At the time of writing, it hasn't updated in a decade.
  • Door Stopper: 49 chapters long and still incomplete.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Both Vader and Leia are pretty damned evil, but there's no doubt that they love each other, and have good relationships with a fair few others.
  • Morality Pet: Leia for Vader, initially. It doesn't last.
  • Wrench Wench: Leia. This is actually how she and Vader first meet, as he takes an interest in the modifications she has made to her swoop bike.
