    Summary

    Yes, it's a completely overdone trope, but it's my absolute favorite! Plus Nemesis Games gave such a perfect setup. It's almost as if the authors wanted me to think these things. Set just after Amos and Peaches escape the Pit.

    Summary

    Leia was not adopted. She was stolen in the middle of the night and registered to House Organa with forged papers. This was kidnapping, a class one felony, and her parents could be executed -- unless she returned voluntarily to her rightful father. Immediately.

    A man called Grand Moff Tarkin explained this to Leia when she was eleven years old.

    Summary

    The story Hippolyta told her daughter when she was a child was that she carved her from clay. That Zeus breathed life into her, this child she so desired, that she came into being.

    This, Diana learns, for all that it was a kindness, was a lie.

    Diana tells her daughter the truth; that she was born of love. Imperfect, too brief, human love.

    The truth, Diana thinks, the ticking echo of Steve’s watch pounding away in her head - her heart - is rarely a kindness.

    Or Diana; after.
