We have a sackful of great excuses as to why it took us so long to announce the results of our Revenge of the Sith love scene rewrite contest - but rather than go through the drudgery of ennumeration, wouldn't you rather we just announce the bloody winners?

First, congratulations to the the runners-up: David Ritchie, Evan Reynolds, Thoman L. Strickland, and Garrett Fasano. And the grand prize winner is ...

Anna Siri!
Her full-length submission is after the jump.

Thanks to all who entered. If you're one of the lucky five winners, please contact us at cinematical@gmail.com with your PayPal information.



INT. CORUSCANT-PADME'S APARTMENT-TWILIGHT

PADME stands in the balcony brushing her hair. ANAKIN leans against
the wall, watching her lovingly.

PADME
---and I want to have our baby on Naboo, where our family can live in
peace.  Why are you staring?

ANAKIN
I'm making up for lost time.  Those unbearably long days protecting
the Outer Rim---I missed you.

PADME
And?  Do I look different?

ANAKIN
(protesting)
Oh, no, Senator.  You're too good with words.  I'm a Jedi---I know
when I'm walking into a trap.

PADME
Serves you right for falling in love with a politician.

Anakin shakes his head in disbelief.

ANAKIN
Who would believe it?  You're a Senator and I'm---

He falters.

PADME
What?  Annie?

ANAKIN
(serious)
I'm yours.

PADME
Mine?  You're not worried about enslaving yourself to a public
servant, my Jedi knight?

ANAKIN
It's only to you, Padme.  Only to you.
