    Summary

    Liu Bao looks him in the eye over the table. “Admiral Zheng sailed all the way to Africa,” he says, “but he died on his seventh voyage, and his tomb is empty. You have gone around the world more than once. Have you never been worried that you would die at sea, and no one would perform the rites at your grave?

    Laurence answers as truthfully as he knows how. “No,” he says, “never, though I have feared the opposite — that I would die on land, and be buried in the earth, and I would never know home again.”

    Summary

    The lesson is transfiguring rats into teacups . . . only Ron Weasley's rat is actually an Animagus, which has dire consequences for the spell, for Peter Pettigrew, and for the Dark Lord's prospects for resurrection (and rather better consequences for Minerva McGonagall's reputation). Cross-posted (finally!) from Tumblr.

    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

    Poe is undercover with the First Order, making good progress on his duties to the Resistance, but one of the privileges that officers in the First Order are expected to take advantage of is that of claiming a Stormtrooper for their bed.

    FN-2187 knows he shouldn't have met the officer's eyes. Being chosen by an officer is the easiest way for a Stormtrooper to die.
