    Wherein female characters aren't ignored or fridged, the narrative doesn't ignore the GFFA's slavery issue, and the Jedi Order is (slightly) more open to change. Lots of lovely character and culture building.

    Summary

    “You understand, Professor,” Harry began, after a moment, “that I don’t have my N.E.W.T.s. I don’t even have my O.W.L.s. Between everything I never had a chance the first time around, and then afterwards there didn’t seem to be much point. Hermione argued for it, of course, but I was so tired of Britain. So technically, I am completely unqualified for the position.”

    “Quite a way to begin an interview, Mr. Potter,” McGonagall said dryly.

    Or, three years after the war, Harry Potter becomes Hogwarts' newest Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.

    The HP fic equivalent of comfort food.

     
    In all, McGonagall thought that every student who had stayed behind for holidays was gathered in the room.

    “Headmistress McGonagall,” Harry said, looking up, glasses askew, “I see you’ve uncovered our secret gaming room. Are you here to give me detention?” A smile flitted around the edges of his mouth as he struggled to keep a straight face.

    “Certainly not, Professor Potter,” McGonagall answered primly. “Though if you think you are teaching chess you’re sorely mistaken. He’ll have you in three moves.”

    Summary

    Relationships have to start somewhere. Or, once you've jumped into a garbage chute with people you kind of either decide to like them or you don't.

    Basically, Han and Leia from trying-not-to-think-about-her to declarations of love at the least convenient times.

    Spot-on characterizations and character voices, as well as some a+ relationship-building. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

    Summary

    Padmé wakes to the back of Obi-Wan’s head, his hair mussed and his arms spread, outstretched over her knees as though to shield her from all that would come. (Too late, Padmé thinks, feeling the dull ache around her throat, where phantom hands tightened. Much too late for that now.)

    Bittersweet and evocative. Padme lives, she mourns and she rages, and she raises her children with the aid of a small circle of friends and family.

     

    She turns her gaze to Palpatine, whose delight is obscene, badly-hidden behind his mask of concern. “Get him out of my home. I will not speak with a man who murdered children in cold blood. Who did irreparable harm to me, and to his—his own unborn—get him out. Take him with you and go.”

    “My dear—” Palpatine begins, but she is past caring, she is past rational thought, she has gone beyond the threshold of anger into some pure white country, cold and absolute.

    Leave, Emperor,” Padmé Amidala says. “And take your Sith pet with you.”

    Anakin conducts a survey in the Temple for an ethics assignment and realizes how flawed the Order's modus operandi is when it comes to structural oppression... and where his personal breaking point lies. Thoughtful, painful, and compelling.

     
    "You thought that the Jedi helped everyone," Obi-Wan said, quiet.

    "Yeah," Anakin muttered. "That. And I know why they can't, I mean… I know there's only so many Jedi and that the work never ends and there are thousands and thousands of worlds always in need of Jedi assistance, there are huge, huge issues the Jedi need to handle and… and in the grand scheme of things I know a little back water planet like Tatooine, it doesn't really matter in the galactic scheme of things. So in a way I get where everyone was coming from, when they were telling me off. When they were telling me to concentrate on the bigger picture. But…"
