    Summary

    Obi-Wan narrowed his eyes. "Who are you?" He asked, hoping a direct question would yield answers. The old man seemed adept at side-stepping information when asked a bit more deftly. “I’ve never heard of a Master with your level of talent.”

     

     

     

    The old man seemed surprised. “If you’ve never heard of one like me, then what good would my name be? You wouldn’t know it.”

     

    Obi-Wan felt a flare of irritation, and quickly squashed it. The old man blinked, as if he hadn’t expected to feel that, and he smiled, sadly. “My name is Luke,” he said, as if a peace offering.

     

    The force trilled in his ear, and Obi-Wan frowned. "Luke what?" He asked, and the old man, this Luke, smiled wryly.

     

    "Luke Skywalker.”

    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!

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku has always been written off as weird. As if it's not bad enough to be the quirkless weakling, he has to be the weird quirkless weakling on top of it.

    But truthfully, the "weird" part is the only part that's accurate. He's determined not to be a weakling, and in spite of what it says on paper, he's not actually quirkless. Even before meeting All-Might and taking on the power of One For All, Izuku isn't quirkless.

    Not that anyone would believe it if he told them.

    Summary

    Hayakawa Mori is ANBU cannon fodder; he has never expected to survive anything truly devastating. So when the Kyuubi breaks free and takes control of Uzumaki Naruto, he's not surprised that he ends up dead.
    What he is surprised about is that somehow, he accidentally kills the Uzumaki brat in the process -- and the Kyuubi is not happy about it.

    (And naturally, Hayakawa Mori gets to go back in time.)

    OC-centric, but canon characters will be playing major roles.

    Summary

    When Roy Mustang went to retrieve his eyesight from Truth, he wasn’t expecting to end up doing a job in exchange. It couldn’t even be an easy job, of course, because Edward’s assessment of Truth was a pretty accurate one.
