    Summary

    When James retired from MI6, he thought that he was escaping it all: the chaos, the unexpected surprises, the random threats on his life. There’s none of that at Skyfall Lodge… right? Until a bespectacled little child turns up on his doorstep out of the blue. James can’t just leave him outside with a storm rolling in - and thus James Bond, ex-Navy and ex-00-agent, is reminded once again of how small things can cause a lot of chaos.

    Summary

    A ten-second run-in with a magical artefact has dire consequences when the Batboys end up in the wrong bodies. For the duration, though, they're going to have to live each other's lives as best they can. It sounds easier than it is, and it didn't sound easy to start with. Worse, everyone who knows them thinks it's hilarious.

    It's going to be a long week in Gotham.

    Summary

    In the Shire, hobbits say, "What lovely weather we've having." They also stir their teacups for four and a half clockwise rotations, place their left elbow seven-eighths down the way of the arm rest, and sniffled pointedly, which roughly translates to: "This tea is over-steeped and bland, your furniture is both uncomfortable and horrifically tasteless, and you're a twit of a host."
    And I think that's beautiful.
    ~
    Hobbitish is a language of manners and etiquette, the dwarves don't even know that Hobbitish is a thing, and Bilbo is trying to keep a straight face and his peace of mind while the Company unintentionally keeps sexually propositioning him and challenging him to pie-eating contests to the death.

    Actions speak so much louder than words.

    Summary

    Anakin Skywalker was once a slave. Now, he fights to free the chained and the damned.

    Ahsoka Tano longs for something more, something she fears is not the way of the Jedi.

    Rex has been nothing but a number his whole life and he fears now, that the war he was made for is nothing but a spark that failed to start a flame, that his days are numbered.

    -----------------------

    “I saw your laser sword and wanted to see it! I’ve never seen anything like it before. Is it true you’re a sorcerer?” The child tilted their head to the side to get a better look at the saber on Anakin’s belt, the flower patterned handkerchief around their lekku shifting slightly as they did.

    Without much thought, Anakin adjusted the handkerchief, the child dropping their head so Anakin could properly tie it for them. “I prefer wizard over sorcerer.” A rolled up piece of fabric hit the side of his head, causing the child to laugh and Anakin to pout as he picked it up and placed it on his shoulder.

    “He’s nothing exciting.” Kitster said, as though they hadn’t once been this child’s age and brimming with excitement as Anakin secretly showed him his skills while nobody paid attention to two little slave boys running about.
