  1. Summary

    This is not canon compliant according to some of the things Anne McCaffrey has said about how dragons choose riders. But I wanted to explore a few things re: sexism that didn't make sense to me in the series, specifically after AIVAS was unearthed and learning more about the history of the colony (Dragonsdawn). Why wouldn't girls who learn about LADY Governor Boll, and the other women in roles of leadership and power in their pasts want to emulate that?

    So -- here be dragons, of the bronze, brown, and blue variety, ridden by women.

  2. Summary

    Personal wish fulfillment for characters, interactions, and relationships. Ongoing and vaguely in chronological order. Fondly referred to (by me) as "what I wish would happen in canon".

    Summary

    Derek doesn’t want to call the window repair guy. He doesn’t want to sweep up the glass. He’ll inevitably miss a few shards and pull them out of the bottom of his bare feet for weeks.

    He doesn’t want to try to make this place feel like home when it isn’t.

    Derek stayed in Beacon Hills and tried to make it work because he wanted pack, wanted purpose. He gave his best effort and found himself back where he started: alone, with a few begrudging allies. He’s tired, and even though his werewolf body heals quickly, he feels the weary ache down to his center.

    He packs his car with the few things he cares about enough to drag them from place to place. He locks the loft and calls a realtor about listing the building he’d bought in a misguided attempt to secure a future.

    And then he leaves.

    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

    Summary

    A connected series of fics that place Tatooine at the bright center of the universe, and focus in particular on the lives, beliefs, struggles, world views, and stories of the slave characters. In part an effort to reintroduce the issue of slavery as something central to the narrative and to the characters' conceptions of themselves, as well as an effort to prioritize the stories of non-Jedi, non-Core world characters.
