    Summary

    He’s half human and half something monumental.

    What does that make his children?

    --

    The Skywalkers aren't entirely human. Here's what that means.

    Summary

    When Ben Organa left his home and his parents and his whole world behind to join the First Order Militia, he thought he was going to change the world. Then Leader Snoke told him exactly what that meant, what Kylo Ren was meant to do, and everything fell apart. With no other options in sight, he grabbed the only person he could save and fled north, to the small towns, dark forests, and rough roads his father used to travel down. He might manage to find a new identity somewhere in Northern Michigan, assuming the world doesn't end first.

    Summary

    In a secret compartment at the side of her bed — the bed they shared — there is a dagger. Long as her forearm, slim, elegant, deadly, it slides neatly from its hiding to sit against her skin, under her sleeve. She opens and closes her hand, remembering Sabé’s training, until the dagger leaps into her palm at the speed of thought.

    Summary

    It is, she knows, a pretty picture--a thoughtful, cunning picture: the last surviving child of the Stewards, leading the returning king into the city; a woman in a gown as white as the city walls, cradling the white scepter of the Stewards as though it is a child. She is a fitting end to the years of a kingless Gondor: an orphaned, unmarried woman, as bereft as a city and realm without a king.

    (“I am a metaphor,” she had told Eowyn days before, when she had explained how she was to open the city gates and offer the throne to the king. “A personification of the city.”

    “A city,” Eowyn had asked, “that is still battered by war?”

    Farduil had laughed, feeling herself flush, and had said, “Perhaps it is more apt a metaphor than I should like.”)

    Written for culumacilinte's prompt of an AU with a fem!Faramir, which hit all my kinks, because I love ladies, and I love exploring politics, marriages, inheritance issues, etc., through the lens of gender.

    It's mostly a re-imagining of the end of RotK if Denethor had one (dead) son and one (living) daughter. Expect a ton of Steward of Gondor feels, because I love that family so much.
