    Summary

    Following the battle of Endor, the Alliance to Restore the Republic took a single prisoner from the attack on the Death Star. Sequestered aboard a lone ship with a skeleton crew, that prisoner sits and waits for what fate will bring him, his very existence kept a closely guarded secret. Desperately trying to work out what to do with him, the Rebel leaders send a lone analyst to speak with him, to take a record of his side of the story. They want to be able to judge him when the time is right. But who exactly is it they would be judging? And why exactly did he help destroy the galaxy - and then help save it?

    AU, following on from an alternate ending for Return of the Jedi.

    From the The_Librarian's comment to a reviewer: "...the narrative shapes who we are invested in, who we care about. The big difference, I suppose, is that we can clearly point to the author and accuse them of playing with our emotions with a reasonable degree of intention." Or, to paraphrase (several people who would know): 'The death of one person is a tragedy, the death of millions: a statistic.'

    Summary

    Kylo Ren, newly-crowned Supreme Leader of the First Order, finds himself flung back through time to the era of the Clone Wars. He decides to capitalise on this opportunity and insert himself into the life of his beloved grandfather Anakin Skywalker. Together they will rule the galaxy with an iron fist.

    Unfortunately, Kylo has never been very good at being evil.

    My newest favorite WiP. Drama, humor + heaping heaps of irony. Also, Kylo compares Obi-Wan's opening lightsaber stance to a move from a Twi'lek 'rope dancer' (Kylo really shouldn't talk, considering he pulls a similar move near the end of TLJ). Gotta wonder about that kid!

    Summary

    There is a Force based ability so rare it had almost passed into myth. Until a certain Skywalker came along.

    Or: "How cool would it be if some Jedi could shapeshift into dragons?" a collaboration with the fantastic PirateArrowXAB.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Short series that somehow still manages to be epic. 'Luke leaps upwards, wings snapping out as he flees, the stump of his front leg held to his chest. The sight of Vader staring up at him, in what Luke is shocked to recognise as wistfulness and envy rather than anger is something he will always carry with him.'

    Summary

    Once upon a time, Harry Potter hid for two hours from Dudley in a chemistry classroom, while a nice graduate student explained about the scientific method and interesting facts about acids. A pebble thrown into the water causes ripples.

    Contains, in no particular order: magic candymaking, Harry falling in love with a house, evil kitten Draco Malfoy, and Hermione attempting to apply logic to the wizarding world.

    'Professor Severus Snape was the worst teacher in the school, and Harry was his least favorite student. He was also Harry’s favorite professor, which just made the whole thing worse somehow. He was cruel, sarcastic, horribly disliked, and absolutely brilliant.' Right up there with Green Gecko's "Resonance" as my favorite HP and SS fic. Not exactly canon!Harry but compelling just the same.

    'Hello Professor Lupin, I’m from the future, and shouldn’t even be a werewolf at all, and don’t really know anything about how to stop what’s going to happen, which is that your life gets even more terrible I think, p.s Dumbledore hired Voldemort for some reason, what the fuck. Your chum Draco. ' If Draco's first draft that doesn't make you want to read this fic, nothing will. What a Mess!Draco is kinda awesome. Work-in-Progress.
