“I beg your pardon,” he repeated for what had to be the fifth time, “but married?”
The coat that had started the whole thing was innocuously hanging on the rack next to the door, and Obi-Wan resisted the urge to glare accusingly at it.
“Sorry,” said Rex with an awkward shrug, “but I don’t make the rules.”
In which there is a deal, a coat, and what comes after.

“I’m not a reverse werewolf either,” says the man. “I’m your godfather.”
She almost smiles, and true alarm starts to build in his chest. “I’m afraid I’m not here for something so small. Professor Roberts has resigned.”
“Good,” Draco says honestly, “Would you like a list of suitable alternatives? I know a number of competent potions masters abroad, but then of course you’d have to hire another teacher to act as the Slytherin head. I’m afraid you’ve dried up all the half decent Slytherin Potions masters.”
“Not all of them,” she says quietly.
He blinks. She can’t be serious. “You can’t be serious.”
“Gravely,” she says, “Mr. Malfoy, I am not above begging.”
What the bloody fuck. “I don’t even like potions!”
Draco returns to Hogwarts.
He has a duty to his blood and his name and his house, and he will fulfill it.
In the middle of their second year, Draco and Harry discover they're soulmates and do their best to keep it a secret from everyone.
Their best isn't perfect.

Harry glares. He opens his mouth, and feels the beginning the snake’s language pass his lips, and this isn’t what he wants, what’s the point of insulting Malfoy if he can’t understand him –

Obi Wan Kenobi, a Padawan in the Temple on Coruscant, and Shmi Skywalker, a newly pregnant slave owned by Gardulla the Hutt on Tatooine, share a series of visions. Visions full of death and pain and destruction (the end of the Jedi, their own deaths), as well as joy and hope (the end of an Empire, the redemption of a son).
Shmi gets all of the memories meant for her not yet born son. She remembers being fully trained as both a Jedi Knight and a Sith Apprentice without ever swearing herself to the Light or Falling to the Dark.
These stories are them finding each other against the odds, learning to live with memories of a life they have not lived, and hopefully changing things for the better.
