    Summary

    He knew that Kenobi liked to steep the standard-issue tea for less than the recommended time because he thought it became too bitter.

    He knew that Kenobi would stand in front of the holomaps with him until they both went cross-eyed with exhaustion, neither of them willing to give up on working through a strategy.

    He knew that when Trapper had frozen up before a battle, Kenobi hadn’t reported it. Instead he had spoken to him softly until his hands stopped shaking, and it made something in Cody’s chest twist to see someone else looking out for his brother the way he did.

    Summary

    There are rumors that the Jedi are not entirely… natural. They move too quickly, too silently, and their eyes always look to something nobody else can see.

    “Unnatural,” some people murmur. “This ‘Force.’ It’s not right.”

    Mortis was a conduit of the Force.

    Anakin Skywalker had been a temporary conduit for the Daughter, had Fallen in the Well of the Dark Side, had been born from the Force.

    Ahsoka Tano had been transformed by the Son, had been killed by the Dark, had been restored by the life of the Daughter.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi had been taken to the Altar formed of pure Force, had been trapped in the Well of the Dark, had spoken with the dead.

    They had been immersed in the Force more deeply than any other Jedi.

    More deeply than what the Jedi consider to be… natural.

    Here’s what it means.

    Summary

    War is upon Etheria.

    The Horde's expansionism has reached the borders of Brightmoon, and a fierce conflict unfolds, which will spread like wildfire to the entire world, at the hands of two girls, Adora and Catra. One a tactical savant, the other a strategic genius.

    Here, people are broken, and nations fall, and in the end, perhaps the world itself will succumb. Perhaps love will conquer all.

    It is not so certain anymore, if we really will win in the end.


    Nobody holds the idiot ball. Nothing is within walking distance of anything else. There's more than five people living in Brightmoon. The Horde has more than ten soldiers and an actual hierarchy of rank. It's not a rebellion if you're fighting an invading foreign army. War takes time and costs money. Royalty is built on an ancestral act of violence. Weapons are dangerous tools made for killing people.


    What if Adora had a gun, and Hordak was an industrial revolution-isekai protagonist.

    Summary

    "During the Sith Wars," Mace began heavily, "many of the most powerful and deadly Sith were once Jedi, whose partner bonds had been severed."

    "And this is the connection you believe Skywalker and Kenobi have formed?" His former Padawan, Depa Billaba, almost whispered. "That is madness - surely Obi-Wan would not be so foolish."

    "For Skywalker," interrupted Fisto, "he would be."

    Summary

    When Peter's Teacher announces that his Graduating Class's Senior Trip is going to be to Stark Industries, the place where Peter has an internship, and where he spends so much of his free time, he is... less than enthused. No one believes his Internship is real and frankly, he just doesn't want to deal with it, but between May and Mr. Stark, he doesn't really think he's going to get much of a choice.
    He's going to have to go
    At least Ned is excited about it.
    And hey, he has a month till the actual day, maybe he'll fall into a pit or get carried away by a stork-themed villain or fall into a Coma or something before the dreaded Field Trip
