    Summary

    The first thing that hits his eyes is a strand of white-cyan-violet and he flinches on instinct and scrambles for the controls and— realizes it doesn’t move, not like the lasers had; a curling mirage of scattered smoke. Not a straight line. A circle; a messy one. A vast line of glowing dust and specks of plasma glinting like little stars in a cloud that, like smoke on water, glides and weaves within the cosmos until it falls in line.
    He already knows what awaits him once he sees the signs. Puts it together. The reeling sea of stars sliding too freely, like oil, on the watery matter of spacetime; the explosion converted into rings of cyan-violet flame brighter on one side and so neat in the face of the natural chaos of things.
    A black egg resting so calmly, so nicely, in the middle.

    Lord, I worry,
    that love is violence.

    Summary

    “If I leave them here, will you bathe on your own?” she asks. Flint does not answer, and she feels something catch in her throat. He will not, she knows - he has not taken the effort to so much as remove his shirt or attempt to deal with his bleeding wounds, preferring instead to sit, exhausted, on the barrel, staring into the middle distance, contemplating God alone knows what. She cannot blame him - there has been much to think on this day. She herself cannot put out of her mind just how close she has come to losing this - to losing him.

    Madi decides not to be sent away after her rescue. When she returns to Skeleton Island, she finds a betrayal in progress and takes steps to save her friend and put her people's choice regarding the war back in their hands.

    Summary

    “You have come to find me predictable, then,” Chaos said. They didn’t sound exactly offended—maybe calculating, or thoughtful, or their voice didn’t reflect any feeling at all, and he was merely projecting it onto them—but Zagreus felt a chill nonetheless. He imagined Poseidon wouldn’t take well to being told he was shallow and calm, or that Aphrodite would enjoy being told she was pretty but Only In A Friend Way.
    “Not, uh, exactly predictable,” said Zagreus, and was cut off as the portal finally extracted the necessary life from him and he was slurped into the abyss.

    Summary

    Let us consider the fact that the Jedi Order is a monastic religious organization based out of a temple, with five basic tenets of faith.

    Ch 1: Death, yet the Force (meeting Anakin)
    Ch 2: Chaos, yet Harmony (teaching Anakin)
    Ch 3: Passion, yet Serenity (teaching a teenaged Anakin, good grief)
    Ch 4: Ignorance, yet Knowledge (Anakin is a Knight now, why is he still Obi-Wan’s problem?)
    Ch 5: Heresy, yet Orthodoxy (actual plot? Ie, Clones and Sith)
    Ch 6: Emotion, yet Peace (epilog)

    Ch 7: extras / deleted scenes
