    Summary

    Jason's a different person when he comes out of the Lazarus pit, and once he's decided that he wants the training to be able to match Batman, the only question is who that training can come from. There aren't many people in the world that are good enough, but the choice Talia makes for him is a good one. Who better to teach him to beat Batman than Deathstroke?

    Summary

    “We can’t just leave him here to die.”

    “He’s an emissary, Scott.” Derek tried to make his tone empathetic, but Scott’s tendency to fight back on everything always grated on his nerves. “His pack is gone, he won’t survive more than a day or two either way.”

    “Then we should stay with him.”

    Derek sighed as he studied the man for a moment; he was too pale against the fur rim of his hood, almost grey from lying out in the snow, and his cloak was stained with dark dried blood around a protruding arrow shaft. It was unlikely he would even last the night. They would probably be able to carry on in the morning with little time lost, if any.

    It wasn’t a horrible idea, Derek decided reluctantly. They hadn’t been able to set up a real camp for a few weeks in the open foothills, and they were all on edge from sleeping in exposed areas. A defensible place to sleep would be good for them, even if they were surrounded by death. They would be able to give the pack proper burials, at the very least.

    “Fine. One night,” Derek relented, already moving away to check on Isaac. “He’s your responsibility.”

    Summary

    ...always greener the grass is, said Yoda, at some point, probably.

    Dozen years ago Obi-Wan went into AgriCorps - now Qui-Gon Jinn is taking a new padawan. Somehow, this is Obi-Wan's problem.

    Summary

    I started writing Reprise in November of 2015 after... well, I can't remember the details. I remember being hellbent on reading a good time travel AU, and not finding any that featured Ben Kenobi physically going back in time instead of mentally reappearing in the body of his younger self. So, naturally I decided to write one myself.

    If you want something done...

    I was fresh into a new graduate program, stressed, and lonely, and this monster came tumbling off my keyboard faster than I have written anything, ever. After I hit 100k words, I figured I should start splitting it up into easier-to-chew chunks. It's been my pet project ever since, and frankly, I did not know I had the ability to write this much this quickly. This story has taught me how to critically edit, how to cut chunks and rewrite them, how to listen to an editor (and voice of reason, thanks dear), how to use at outline, and how to plan a long, long plot.

    Ten months after penning the first page, I'm 230k words in and gearing up to start writing the third (and hopefully final) installment of this AU. Hopefully, it'll go as smoothly as the first two parts.

    Have fun reading!
