    Summary

    Padme lives. She runs.

    --

    Leia is growing in fits and spurts, eating greedily and crying loudly. She stays in a sling on Padme’s chest when they move, Luke held snug in a sling around Obi Wan’s. Luke gets a whole head of thick brown hair while Leia’s is still patchy and bald, but he never matches his sister’s powerful lungs.

    When Padme had been sitting in her high senatorial apartment on Corsucant, holding Anakin’s sweaty hand, she had never imagined she’d be murmuring desperately soothing noises to her fussy daughter while she shot around a corner at stormtroopers, while R2D2 meddles with a ship’s blast doors behind her.

    Luke starts teething on a hot jungle planet where they hunker down for three weeks, sleeping in an abandoned old temple and catching the local wildlife for dinner. Leia takes her first steps in the belly of a Corellian freighter they’ve stowed away on. She wobbles between Padme’s outstretched hands and Obi Wan’s knees and boxes of smuggled luxuries. When she falls down, Obi Wan surges forward, heart in his throat, but Leia laughs.

    Summary

    Debra Morgan, and the art of moving on.

    As a star, she looks down at her brother with something akin to pity, twinkles at him through the small barred slit in his holding cell at the station where he paces irritably. In that moment, she can forgive him, forgive Harry, forgive herself for all the atrocities the trio have committed, and knows that her actions tonight were mercy.

    Summary

    After the Civli War, the Avengers were back together.

    How is everything going, Tony? Pepper had asked in her email.
    It's fine (Tony had written back). I'm fighting with Steve all the time. Everything is going to hell. I'm okay (you know I'm always okay).

    (Or: How Tony and Steve learned to be a bit gentler with each other)

    Summary

    In a world where feelings show up as colors on people’s skin, it is an empirical reality that John Watson is depressed (pale) beyond recovery, and Sherlock Holmes is incapable of feeling anything (blank) at all.

    That’s the thing about empiricism, though. It never quite tells the whole story.
