    Summary

    Her brain screams at her to ask, ask, where is Anakin, who is Anakin; is he going to be okay; are any of them going to be okay; he's her big brother, please, she can't lose him again, she can't--

    But--

    There's something she needs to know more. Something that slides cold and even down her spine, like an answer she already knows.

    Like eyes on her back.

    "Tell me who Darth Sidious is," she demands, and Maul's grin is all teeth.

    (Or, a supremely unorthodox way of saving the galaxy from ruin; or, the season 7 mandalore teamup AU we need but don't deserve)

    Summary

    "It was the sort of thing that’d been building for months. Years if you listened to Nick, but Adam was of the opinion that listening to Nick was something you should never do. Not because he was usually wrong, but because he was usually right, and Adam was entirely too uncomfortable with being understood for that to be something he recommended."

    Summary

    There are, Johnny’s pastor will tell you, many ways to lose your soul. You can go gambling two towns over (or in the backroom of the Back Porch Bar on Saturdays), or go fishing on a Sunday morning, or sleep with your neighbor’s wife (sleeping with anyone other than your wife, really, will do it). Even a misplaced ‘oh my god’ is enough to damn you half the time, although a muttered ‘good lord’ gets past heaven’s radar, apparently. Disrespecting your mother, disobeying your father, listening to 101.3 FM WMXK, hitting snooze instead of getting yourself to the town revival—make any of a long list of missteps and, bam, there goes your soul, forfeited altogether unintentionally.

    When it comes to selling your soul, though, everybody knows there’s only one route for that, and it’s down Creekwood just as the sun sets, when the sky’s so red you’re left squinting at your windshield and praying you’re still on the right side of the dirt road, and behind you everything is already dark.

    Johnny, though, he’s a bit of a traditionalist when it comes down to it. He arrives on foot.

    Summary

    Gordon shakes his head. “No. I’m fine, it’s just--” he pauses for a moment. When he starts speaking again, he moves slowly, picks his words carefully. “It’s been a long time since I've been touched by someone who wasn’t... trying to kill me.”

    He almost regrets speaking at the expression that fills Barney’s face. Gordon can only just barely hold eye contact on the best of days, and as much as he’s wanted to drink in the sight of Barney as often as he can, the sheer piercing sadness forces him to avert his eyes entirely.

    “Do--” Barney swallows, his voice uncharacteristically quiet. “Do you... want to be?”
