    Summary

    Ask anyone and they can tell you the story: that the words inked on your skin are the first words that your soulmate will say to you. That if you are in the right place at the right time, if you’re lucky, you’ll find the person made to complement you in every way.

    It’s easy to see why people want to believe it. The notion of a perfect partner is seductive, and some people spend their entire lives searching.

    Most people don’t beat the odds - and with humanity spread from the central planets to the farthest-flung outpost, the odds are pretty astronomical. A reasonable amount of basic compatibility and a visit to a decent tattooist are enough to satisfy tradition, for most people.

    The Hyperion president loudly, publicly, does not believe in that bullshit. The Atlas president keeps his counsel to himself.

    Summary

    Kenobi winced as the critter yipped affectionately and started gnawing on his ear, carefully maneuvering her fangs so as not to draw blood. “Cody, I don’t have an animals thing.”

    Or, in which Cody, bored and tired after finishing yet another campaign in the early stages of the war on some dustball planet in the middle of nowhere, decides on a whim to get his General a pet. It goes...well, all things considered.

    Summary

    “He vanished into the Cosmic Force,” Vader intones, and Cody will never understand why people raised as Jedi don’t just say ‘dead’.

    “Is there a reason,” Cody asks, voice shaking with grief over his General’s lightsaber and cloak for the very last time, eyes still burning and blurry with choked-off tears, “you needed to free me to tell me that?” Is there a reason Cody had needed to know at all? Why would Darth Vader--Anakin Skywalker--bother to track down General Kenobi’s former Commander, and make absolutely certain he’d feel the loss sharp and hot in his chest when he delivered the news. What purpose would it serve, now?

    “You misunderstand, Commander,” Vader says, and Cody blinks. “He vanished. Wholly. He purposely did not block, I struck him down, and by the time the cloak had fallen, there was no body remaining.”

    Summary

    There really was no excuse for it. A clone commander as experienced as Cody should have known better than to touch the odd-looking statuette sitting on the altar, and it was difficult to say what in the galaxy had possessed him to wander over, as if in a daze, and pick it up. Cody supposed that the strange compulsion could be what the General would describe as “guidance from the Force”; Cody would call it a spell of temporary madness and hope that he would not get too strong a reprimand for his lapse in judgement.
