    Summary

    “You’ve got to quit doing this,” Han said.

    Luke glanced at him. “What?”

    Han made a wide impatient sweep of his arm. “This. Standing in the bay staring out into the void. It’s creepy, kid. Come on, it’s dinnertime. The fleet can make it into hyperspace without your personal supervision.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He’d figured the best way to lie to a Jedi was to tell the truth, so he’d taken a hydrospanner to the ventral targeting system himself. There was plenty wrong with it now.

    han deals with problems by stealing a jedi knight and a princess, as is his way.

    lovely characterisation of everyone involved & shoutout to chewie for having han's number--the skywalkers still have much to learn, and not only about buccaneering in space.

    Summary

    When the Trade Federation starts a ruckus and blockades Naboo, the Council decide to send Qui-Gon and his very young padawan to mediate the proceedings. Luckily, Knight Anakin Skywalker happens to be at loose ends and is able to accompany them.

    For a given value of "luckily." He has a bad feeling about this.

    Obi-Wan's eyes are round holes in his shock-white skin. He has freckles. Anakin never noticed before. Maybe they weren't there before Tatooine burned them into his skin. True-green Twi'leks freckle up under the suns, too, and go for high prices to the right buyers.

    oh, anakin.

    anakin's characterisation in this is phenomenal, and beyond that: a testament that even at his best (or close enough to count), he is not someone you want to meet in a dark alley behind a cantina. or any place, really--least of all tatooine. and i'm definitely here for the analogy that is 'anakin's heart | supernova'. i love it all the more for the fact that supernovae are at their most luminous (all is well; it's only radiation) just as they're being inwardly crushed, with the core then collapsing to form a black hole... and if that isn't true for anakin's heart, i don't know what is.

    truly the padawan!obi + knight!anakin premise i didn't know i needed in my life before this, but i do. i really, really do.

    Summary

    With his own two eyes Carlos has observed a house that empirically doesn’t exist. He’s never seen a quantum particle, but his computer models and lab readouts reassure him of their presence. Cecil – lovely and wonderful and strange Cecil – is comforting and solid in every way…except in Carlos’ peripheral vision, when his edges waver as though the lack of direct observation has left him unsure of what shape he should be.

    It means absolutely nothing, to see a thing in Night Vale.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "People keep saying you don’t exist, and after a while you can’t help but wonder if they’re right.”

    a strange and wonderful fic; quite in line with the wtnv aesthetic we all love and dread and love to dread in equal measure. lovely depiction of old woman josie's angels (so civilized!), a surprisingly charming cantaloupe (no teeth!), and carlos and cecil being soft (and tangible!) with each other.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There’s a story, a legend they tell in the east—it’s probably a Xingian story, really.

    i still think about that story from time to time. is that weird? probably.

    the ed&mustang and ed&maes dynamic in this fic is so, so good. also, ed's teetering sanity is both endlessly entertaining and heartbreaking to me.
