    Summary

    "Tell me," says Ahsoka, and she looks at her over the flicker of fire, her skin as saturated as the flame. "What's troubling you?"

    Leia slowly kneels and rests her hands on her knees. She bows her head. "I can't tell you, not really."

    She doesn't like the look on Ahsoka's face, how it inches towards pity. "Why not?" 

    "Because words would fail." 

    Ahsoka lives. Leia goes to Dagobah. She is no Jedi.

    Summary

    “There is no armor solid enough to defend against it. The threat lies within, underneath steel, underneath skin. And yet the impulse is always to fight, Grogu has noticed.

    But this man uses what strength he has left to rasp weakly, “It’s okay.” The words sound warm. They sound like—forgiveness. The phrase flows through Grogu’s mind, over and over and over, a river over rocks that leaves them smooth where they were jagged, clean where they were stained.”

    Summary

    "She laughs when she spills back onto the cracked upholstery. Ghoul musses her hair with one dusty hand stinking of char and bomb-fumes, and she squeaks with joyful indignity when she sticks her hands into his smoking locks and musses his right back. Then she jabs hands smeared with black into yours. Her face is stretched wide into an elated child's grin, the smile of someone who's just embarked on a tremendous adventure, and Party Poison, you won't know it for a while yet, but this is the precise moment when you fall in love.

    This is how you live forever. In the nighttime cries of a little girl who never knew her mother. In the shrill of raygun fire when you duck and take cover from swarms of dracs on the hunt for four outlaws who stole straight from BLi's doorstep. In the slide of a letter as it drops to the bottom of a mailbox."

    Summary

    "Step five is to hold on to your brother and not ever, ever let go. Not for anything. Tears are bright and stinging. They bite into the back of your throat and flood your lungs with nitrogen. Never felt anything like this while still on the pills, but it's the shakes and headaches and soreness - the consequences of refusing those fistfuls of colors in first place - that are sapping you of your ability to do the one thing that would save you both.

    You're killing him. You're killing him just by not being able to do one thing right."
