Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Fix-it/Padme Lives is a trope that appears in many fics set after the final installment of the prequel trilogy. Some of these fix-its employ time travel. There are also less complicated canon divergent works and Mustafar AUs. In some of these works, Anakin is victorious in his fight with Obi-Wan and captures or convinces Padme to come with him. In other works, Anakin's force visions are more accurate allowing him to make better decisions.
  • Emperor and/or Empress Vader works can be dark fics or happy endings. Often it is Anakin who kills the former Emperor. When Anakin assumes the throne, Padme is sometimes his unwilling consort. In other works, it is Padme who rules as Empress Vader or Empress Amidala, with Anakin as her Imperial Consort. These works sometimes overlap with Dark!Padme fics. In other works, they rule side by side with Padme compromising to stay by her husband's side.
  • Polyamory: Anakin/Amidala/Obi-Wan fics, pairing Anakin and Amidala with Obi Wan Kenobi.
