    Summary

    Decades after Luke Skywalker's fall to the Dark Side, a young and rather boring mechanic discovers how far he must go to protect his family - and why being named after crazy old Ben Kenobi can attract all the wrong kinds of attention.

    (AU from The Empire Strikes Back. Doesn't so much ignore the EU as shamelessly cherry-pick it. Characters in the mirror may be less original than they appear. BYO subtext.)

    Summary

    It's simple: Gaara needs Lee. So when his lover brings back his two young orphaned cousins from Konoha, the Kazekage puts up with the disruption to their lives for Lee's sake. He'll have nothing to do with the boys himself, of course, since he doesn't want to traumatize them (more than he already has during their first introduction). Lee can take care of them, Gaara will stay out of their way.

    But there is a shadow hanging over these children. One that is faintly if chillingly familiar. Staying out of the way may not be an option.

    Summary

    In a world full of spells and spirits, humans have found ways to make magic mundane. If it was an everyday thing, it was controlled. It was safe. The wonder was gone, but so were the Gods: all they were was stories.

    Summary

    Byakuya watches the indigo petals tumble from his uncle's lips and think distantly, Bluebells. He's choking on bluebells.

    They're lovely and perfect, the same ones that he wandered through all afternoon, and their sweetness fills the house until he cannot breath for the smell of flowers.

    Outside the window, someone laughs. Soft, kind. Wild.

    Ours, the voice says.

    Summary

    This is who you are, Lupa had told him during his first medal ceremony, nose nudging the fist clenched at his side. Own it. Let them stare.

    And people do. It’s impossible not to stare at Lupa, with the proud tilt of her head, that fierce canine intelligence and the way her black fur catches the light. Shiro’s loved her all his life, and the day she settled was one of his happiest moments.

    He just wishes that it didn’t always feel like when people look at him, they’re seeing only his daemon.
