    Summary

    Siri Tachi is back in the field as a Shadow, now that Ferus Olin has been knighted, going undercover at a shady diner on Coruscant that is a front for criminal activity. She has not lost her edge as she foils a plot to murder Padme, and neither has Master Dooku, who joins Duchess Satine and her de facto brother-in-law, Feemor, on a sensitive mission to Kamino. Master Dooku was ready to leave the Order when he encountered a very forlorn Obi-Wan and Anakin right after the events of TPM, and decided to stay and be their grandpa instead, doubling as Obi-Wan's mentor in alcoholism recovery. Obi-Wan provides all kinds of support, along with his second padawan, Ahsoka Tano, while Mace Windu is busy doting on his adorable little grandpadawan.

    Summary

    Jedi Knight Richar Arten and his Padawan Calia Rayyah have been hard at work doing everything they can to make Level 1442 a safer place for the struggling beings of the underlevels. With the Clone Wars continuing unabated, forcing more and more refugees and other poor sentients into the underworld, opportunistic criminals are expanding further and further through the bowels of Coruscant.

    Now the Pirate Queen known only as Astera has set her sights on the little island of safety and security the two Jedi have worked so hard to build, determined to flood the streets with the bane of all life in the underworld, death sticks. A drug so dangerous and addictive it is known to cut off a being’s connection to the Force, driving them to commit terrible acts. Such as blinding a lost young boy for a handful of credits.

    With the stakes more personal than ever, the hunt is on! But who is the hunter and who is the hunted? As the Jedi are not only themselves under attack by Astera’s agents, but their friends throughout the 1442. Not all is as it seems however, and it will take all of Calia’s determination and Arten’s skill and to survive the Deathstick Gambit.

Why the sacrifice appeared is anyone's guess, but she has her guesses and is willing to fulfill what the gods want of her, whether the new empire wants it or not. TW: human sacrifice.

    Summary

    Oil and Vinegar is a offside passion project set outside the Zootopian Canon and the "In Cold Blood Universe".

    Set in a 1960's Zootopia, a young, yet old-school suave Nick Wilde, is tasked as an Undercover Investigator. Typically his day job is nothing exciting, filing background checks or piles of paperwork, and a divided Zootopia means usually his only clients are carnivores. However, a young, optimistic, and nosy Judy Hopps seeks out the expertise of Nick Wilde to investigate a growing criminal organization, engineering a narcotic by the name of "NightHowlers". Nick, going against his best interests, will tear the division between Carnivores and Herbivores apart by taking on Judy's case. It quickly turns out that Nick and Judy both bit off more than they can chew. Sometimes, things are best left undisturbed, and now Nick is not only caught in a high-profile case tangled with sabotage, seduction, and murder, but also a new love interest, and of all things, a bunny.

    There's a mysterious scandal afoot in the underbelly (and overbelly) of Coruscant, and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi means to drag the *perfectly respectable* Senator Padme Amidala into the fray whether she's ready or not. FYI: She's ready. What she's NOT ready for: Master Obi-Wan Kenobi's infectious smiles. Also included: Padwan Anakin "tall, dark, and silly" Skywalker. AU-ish.

    Just when Obi-Wan Kenobi thought he would have some peace with Anakin newly knighted, a knight he knows from his alcohol addiction recovery meetings, Argorria Motigora, turns up fatally wounded at his kitchen table. The Togruta knight makes him promise to take over the training of her padawan, Ahsoka Tano, before she tells him her story of murder and seduction, of clones and Jenna Zan Arbor, of double indemnity clauses and bounties, and how she sucked Feemor into her mission gone wrong, for the sake of a batch of tiny cloned boys with blue eyes and ginger hair.
