    Summary

    Obi-Wan appreciated the term fixer-upper. It could be applied to many things of incredible value: People, careers, old rusty cars, old dusty homes. It gave an air of growth, of second chances that he considered important to grant for most people, places, and things. Rarely were things so broken that they were truly beyond disrepair and with a touch of care, planning, and tenacity, there was almost always a silver lining.

    Standing inside of his new house, looking at the giant hole in the wall currently letting in thick swirls of snow made him doubt the validity of this philosophy.

    Summary

    “They must receive an allowance from the Order,” Kote said.

    “How much, then?” Rex asked up at him.

    Kote tipped his head head and just stared into Rex’s eyes endlessly, the way he did when people asked him questions that made him want to swallow them whole with their own ignorance.

    “No way of knowing without intrusive measures,” he determined.

    “We gotta ask one,” Bly translated for Rex.

    Summary

    He looked so...weird.

    Without the armor, he didn’t recognize himself. He turned to the side to see how the long tunic moved around his knees and was agitated to find it stiff and awkward.

    It wasn’t supposed to be stiff and awkward. It was supposed to drape and flail out with each step. He pursed his lips and turned further, then gave a half-pivot. The tunic moved like a staggering drunk.

    It would not do.

    Summary

    Anakin rolled over on his side, tugging the sheets up to his chin. “I didn’t want a lecture,” he said to the windows.

    Silence on the opposite end. Anakin clutched the sheets a little harder, squeezed his eyes shut. He heard a sigh behind him, and then felt movement behind him. Obi-Wan turning in the opposite direction, turned to the other wall.

    “I’m not lecturing,” Obi-Wan said a moment later. “I’m only talking to you.”

    “I didn’t want to talk.”

    Lie.

    Summary

    Eight years ago, a young Obi-Wan Kenobi and Cody Fett were forced to break off their engagement of three weeks, on account of the Kenobi-Jinn fortunes being depleted and Cody’s already low station. Cody left for the navy two days after, never to be seen again. Obi-Wan doesn’t think he’s ever quite recovered.

    Now, however, Obi-Wan doesn’t have the time to grieve. Qui-Gon’s death has left him with a mountain of debt, and his days are consumed by the effort to preserve the estate while still paying off the money owed. He barely has time to wrangle Anakin and his rapidly approaching fatherhood - he certainly doesn’t have any time for romance.

    Naturally, this is when Cody Fett decides to step back onto the scene.
