    Real and painful, with solid characterizations and a storyline that manages to feels fresh and original.


    “I don't know what to do Obi-Wan.” she admits softly. “There must be something I can do. Some way I can fight. I...I just can't see it right now. But, it must be there....all the stars can't have burned out and left us in the dark.”

    Obi-Wan sighs and puts a hand on her shoulder. “I don't think there is anything left to do. The Jedi are lost, the Republic destroyed...but you are not. Not yet.”

    She looks up at him, and sees something like his old ever present judgment and sheer bloody minded stubbornness, and it's a relief. Obi-Wan is still in there somewhere. Maybe they aren't just ghosts. Maybe he will recover from this loss. Maybe she will too.

    Vivid prose and excellent character voices.


    “You’re a detective now; you tell me,” he says. It’s almost automatic, by rote. She’s pretty sure she’s going to wind up beating him to death with a shoe one of these days, if he keeps saying that. It’s getting annoying.

    She rolls her eyes. “Or you could just tell me.”

    “And deprive you of the opportunity to flex your deductive muscles? Never.”

    Joan wonders if you can give yourself eye strain from rolling your eyes too much.

    Thoughtful, painful, and well-written, with excellent character voices. One of (or several of, if you want to be technical) those rare fics where all of the characters involved are treated fairly, but no one is smoothed over or watered down.


    I went to sleep on the worst day of my life and woke to find myself in the past on the second worst day of my life. As experiences go, I don’t recommend it.

    Nuanced and bittersweet, this fic breaks (and heals) your heart in the best of ways. Sansa is allowed to display her intelligence and strength without losing her essential sense of compassion, while Doran is given additional depth. The relationships build slowly and believably, and significant relationship power imbalances are not only acknowledged by the narrative, but also by main characters... and in a manner that genuinely influences their actions. A very satisfying read.


    "You saw, out there.” Doran jerked his head, as if to indicate the steps of the palace. “That was Sansa’s doing, all of it. When word reached us that Joffrey had sent his emissary, Sansa stopped eating for three days. There is more grey in my hair now than black, as you may have observed.” He gave a small, fleeting smile. “But then, on the fourth day, she came to me with this plan. Offer Joffrey defiance to the outermost limits of what courtesy permits. Give him nothing to gloat over, nothing for his spies to report.”

    “Nothing for his spies to report?” said Oberyn slowly. “Doran—you know as well as I that we set eyes upon the Queen in the North today. Soon Joffrey will know it too.”
