    Summary

    On the morning of June 3rd, two very different headlines appear on two very different newspapers for two very different audiences:

    The Daily Prophet
    Calamity Strikes Again! Death Eater Attacks Helpless Muggles

    The Telegraph
    Man in Darth Vader Cosplay Enters Shop, Destroys Lamp

     

    In which a Death Eater gets his ass kicked by a muggle and a little old lady, wizards are stupid, muggles aren't, and Rosa has the best girlfriend ever

    Summary

    For Star Fever! This is a fic set in the same universe as the wonderful Dogmatix and Norcumi's A Star to Steer By.


    Averages for the diversity of species on Earth range five million (a conservative estimate) to twenty-five million (generous) to one trillion (unlikely, but provides a degree of scale.)

    Ecosystems as they are presented in Star Wars tend to have exceptionally limited flora and fauna. A planet can have under 50 species, or under ten species, with half of those species found on other planets as well. Compared to Earth, the trend is a fraction of the genetic diversity, and a flexible attitude towards introducing exotic species.

    Some scientists of varying species and disciplines end up talking about that, at length.

    Summary

    [Miles said:] "...Hamlet gets a tip-off that his old man was murdered by the uncle. Unfortunately, he can't tell if his informant is telling truth or lies. So he spends the next five acts blundering around getting nearly the whole cast killed while he dithers."

    "That was stupid," said Nikki scornfully, uncoiling altogether. "Why didn't he just use fast-penta?"

    "Hadn't been invented yet, alas. Or it would have been a much shorter play."

    Summary

    Silent enim legēs inter arma, wrote Cicero. In times of war, the law falls silent.

    Sidious's war might have been that of a Baneite Sith against the Jedi, but it certainly touched a great many more lives than that.

    In the words of one Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, "There is always a bigger fish."
    Though in some cases, the 'bigger fish' is a swarm of little fish who surround their predator and shake it until it boils. Sidious, for all his foresight, somehow didn't see that coming.
