    Summary

    Luke is exploring, seeking more knowledge to better teach his students. Maybe he should have coaxed the artifact on Dantooine to be more specific about what kind of help it could offer. Then again, look at the chance he now had.

    Summary

    The Daughter has a bad day and it irrevocably changes the fate of the galaxy, twice over.

    Or;

    ROTS Obi-Wan and Anakin are swapped with their younger, TPM, selves. It changes things, in both parallels.

    Summary

    littlebastardreviews posted the collected facts from the 2014 UK Editions of Harry Potter: and this fact caught my eye.

    'Only one non-magical person has ever managed to get as far as the Hogwarts Sorting Hat before being exposed as a Squib.'

    But, gosh it just makes me want a story where a squib did make it through. So here's a drabble about a squib with a quick mind and a hand-me-down wand, who refuses to be denied her birthright.

    --

    when the hat drops over her eyes it asks, 'well what do we have here?'

    she’s got a forged hogwarts letter with penmanship that’s perfect down to the ink splatter;

    she’s got a complicated string of owls, only half of them forged, from parents to administration to ministry that’s so complicated her name ended up on the first year roll call anyway.

    she’s got ten arguments, four pleas, and one smothered threat on the tip of her mental tongue for why the house that comes out of this hat’s brim better not be 'squib'

    she’s got a lighter up her sleeve and an eight and a half inch wand in her belt that will never, ever work for her.

    'well,' says the hat, 'better be slytherin then'

    Summary

    “How would anyone notice what anyone else’s type is in the middle of all this?!” Matt demanded, laughing.
    “What’s Keith’s type?” Lance blurted out like an idiot.
    “It’s… obvious,” Pidge said. “He gets all flustered over shitty puns and most physical comedy. And have you seen the way he stares at Hunk when he’s going on about the mechanics of something? Like how the lions work? I’ve literally seen him blushing when Hunk goes into explanation mode.”
    “So, you think he has a crush on Hunk?” Lance squawked.
    “No. You bonehead,” Pidge laughed. “I’m saying any dad-joke-telling, klutzoid with good grades has probably got a pretty good shot at Keith.”

    Or: It figures that after years of getting it hilariously wrong face-to-face, Lance finally gets good at talking to Keith through a screen, which is, like, one of his biggest accomplishments. Then, Pidge makes the comment that Keith has a type, while heavily implying that it's Matt.
    But, listen, with everything going on with Voltron, the coalition, the Blade of Marmora, and Coran, Lance isn't going to get distracted worrying about it.
    Ask anyone, he's always been great with measuring levels of importance....

    Summary

    Keith kicks off a rather bad day by getting kidnapped by Galra loyalists, tasered until he can't move, and doped up with space truth serum that makes him babble non-stop about his history with the Garrison and how he formed his big ol' crush on Lance.

    It's probably not the juicy intel Prince Lotor was hoping for, but it's all he's gonna get.
