    Summary

    Like most Republic citizens, the Naberries have never spent much time thinking about the Jedi. But that changes with the birth of their daughter Ilaré.

    (Or, the AU where the third Naberrie daughter is a Jedi, Padmé offers Naboo as a sanctuary for runaway slaves, Shmi is a conductor on the Tatooine freedom trail, and Anakin jump starts a reformation. Or maybe a heresy. It all depends on your point of view.)

    I love every fic that goes back for Shmi. This one is particularly nice because it goes into a lot of slave culture and rituals. I love it so much. I also love the way it hits home all the various ways Jedi Culture is like slave culture.

    I haven't even read this book yet, but this is a convincing argument to read it. I love this fic. I'm such a sucker for shopping montages.

    Summary

    One would think that having the name of one's soulmate appear on one's wrist on one's sixteenth birthday would make matrimony much less complicated. It mostly does not. And not at all for Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Longbourne.

    (A deconstruction of the "soulmate identifying mark" trope, using "Pride and Prejudice." Trigger warnings in the tags.)
