Padme lives. She runs.

--

Leia is growing in fits and spurts, eating greedily and crying loudly. She stays in a sling on Padme’s chest when they move, Luke held snug in a sling around Obi Wan’s. Luke gets a whole head of thick brown hair while Leia’s is still patchy and bald, but he never matches his sister’s powerful lungs.

When Padme had been sitting in her high senatorial apartment on Corsucant, holding Anakin’s sweaty hand, she had never imagined she’d be murmuring desperately soothing noises to her fussy daughter while she shot around a corner at stormtroopers, while R2D2 meddles with a ship’s blast doors behind her.

Luke starts teething on a hot jungle planet where they hunker down for three weeks, sleeping in an abandoned old temple and catching the local wildlife for dinner. Leia takes her first steps in the belly of a Corellian freighter they’ve stowed away on. She wobbles between Padme’s outstretched hands and Obi Wan’s knees and boxes of smuggled luxuries. When she falls down, Obi Wan surges forward, heart in his throat, but Leia laughs.

Fundamental Force Carriers | tanarill
Summary: The Sith Lord Darth Vader lived his life. He probably didn't live it well, but he lived it as well as he knew how. At the end there, he'd even managed to woman up and kill Sidious. But he was dying, and at peace with the past.

The past wasn't at peace with him. //

Why is it the BEST THING EVER: Time travel fixit AUs are A Thing in the Star Wars fandom. A character (usually Obi-Wan Kenobi or Anakin Skywalker) gets sent back in time by the Force from the time of the OT to the time of the prequels, and things unfold from there. This is quite possibly the best out there, because it combines a) a very unique take on the trope (and the Force, and the whole "chosen one" prophecy) with b) really good writing. When I finished it, I was torn between wanting a sequel and going back to the beginning and rereading it right then and there. -beatrice_otter

Clarkesworld Magazine - Science Fiction & Fantasy : Cat Pictures Please by Naomi Kritzer
I don’t want to be evil.

I want to be helpful. But knowing the optimal way to be helpful can be very complicated. There are all these ethical flow charts—I guess the official technical jargon would be “moral codes”—one for each religion plus dozens more. I tried starting with those. I felt a little odd about looking at the religious ones, because I know I wasn’t created by a god or by evolution, but by a team of computer programmers in the labs of a large corporation in Mountain View, California. Fortunately, unlike Frankenstein’s Monster, at least I was a collaborative effort. I’m not sure what it would do to my self-image to know that my sole creator was a middle-aged woman who dyes her hair blue and plays tennis, or a recent college graduate with a hentai obsession. They’re both on the programming team. And of course I know about the hentai. (By the way, I’ve looked at every sort of porn there is, and just so you know, Rule 34 is not actually correct; there are quite a few things no one’s made porn of yet. Also, I’m really not sure why so many humans prefer it to cat pictures.)

"Don't be afraid," Hawkeye says. "Don't be afraid. Trust the scientific method. They'll slug it out in peer review. I can't wait."

Of daemons, and enduring distance. [6289]
"I was always told," BJ says carefully, "that there are no American witches."

"You were told right." Hawkeye covers his eyes with one hand, speaking into the air. "A small town in Maine, near the – near the border. Near, ah, more borders than one. There's a place, there, close to where I grew up." His voice is getting slower and more melodic, as though he's reciting something he was taught long ago. "If a girl wants something more than what she has, and she's willing to pay for it, she goes to that place. She leaves her daemon on the bank, where the cloud-pine grows. She goes down and unties the little boat. She steps onto the boards and rows out across the water, across that world's water, deep, black, shining. It will hurt, rowing across that water, like heartbreak and leaving and other things, things you're too young to know yet, my love, my love. She rows across that water and when she returns, when she climbs out of the boat onto the bank where the cloud-pine grows, everything is changed."

“He considered Riva’s age. She’d been in her teens at the time of the Barrayaran conquest of Komarr, in her twenties at the time of the Revolt. She’d survived, she’d endured, she’d cooperated; her years under Imperial rule had been good, including an obviously successful live of the mind, and a single marriage. She’d compared children with Vorthys, and spoken of an eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. No Komarran terrorist, she.”

“You’re young,” Alex says bluntly. “Younger than me, even, and no one thought me any good until I’d proven myself in battle. And those of us who study the sword have many more opportunities to prove ourselves publicly--you lot are all shut away in your cloister, how would anyone even know?”

“It’s not like they thought anything of me there either until the first Trials,” Thom says, a touch bitter. “I am so tired of proving myself.”

“I would be too,” Alex says. “I’d look for something decisive. That’s not to say you have to do what Delia says, of course.”

“You don’t seem to doubt me,” Thom says, something odd in his voice. He knocks his shoulder against Alex’s, carefully.

Alex means to use Thom of Trebond to further his own plans. It doesn't turn out that way at all.

The brand new secret tunnel behind Frau Crina's Bar and Bagels had not been outfitted with lamps, and it was the middle of a drizzly mountain night.

It was, of course, lava.

We went around and around. After fifteen minutes, she was still finding new ways to ask if I might be pregnant, and I was watching time tick by and just yearning for a diagnosis already. Finally, she said, "What are you using for birth control?"

I gave up. My desire not to come out to her had lost out to my desire to be done with this question forever. "Lesbianism," I said. "I'm using lesbianism for birth control."

She nodded but did not deviate from her script. "So you're not on the pill? Did you have sex this month?"

"I only have sex with my girlfriend," I said, trying to make this whole lesbianism thing clearer. "She can't get me pregnant."

She sent me to get some blood tests. One of them was for hCG: a pregnancy test.

Jennifer Lynn Barnes | On fandom, parasocial relationships, and what we don't know
In fiction, you frequently (though not always) have the access you need to make conclusions about characters’ mental states and motivations with a high level of certainty. Most of the time in reality, you do not—especially if the people you’re attributing mental states and intentions and dispositions to are people you do not actually know, people you are watching from afar.
:::::

I wonder if that level of engagement could potentially have very real cognitive effects on us, beyond what has already been studied. On the one hand, that kind of engagement might actually make us better at understanding people. But at the same time, I think it quite possibly increases our perceptions of how good we are at doing that, beyond what is actually possible.

Bark Like A Fish, Damnit! - On Con Sexual Harassment – Being An Ally Is Freaky As Hell
What a person gets up to in their head, well, I'd rather not know. But when they behave in a manner that makes others uncomfortable, a note need be taken, to see if it's part of a larger pattern. This is not to say that the person can't be an intelligent, eridute, and otherwise pleasant fellow traveller, with many great accomplishments or kind acts to their name. It's just to say that "Dude, this thing you're doing is making people uncomfortable."

This is not to condemn them, but their behaviour. And it doesn't really matter that they didn't mean to, that they meant it as a compliment, that they just find the other person awesome, or that they want to get into their pants by any means available. It doesn't matter if they are Creepy McCreep with Kung-Fu ass grip and bloody cleavers, or Shyguy Awkwardson who doesn't know how to talk to girls.

"This thing you're doing is making people uncomfortable. Please be considerate enough to stop doing that." is better than "You're a creepy creep. Stop being you."

And if you think about it this way, it becomes easier to report, too, I think. It's harder to say "That guy over there is a creep", because you condemn them as a person. It's easier to say "That guy over there did this thing that was creepy" because that makes it clear it's the act you condemn.

A Theory of Ice: Epistemology is a Bitch
But the statisticians are damn near the only ones in this game who maintain any strict standards of epistemological honesty, and I’m afraid more and more that the assertion of faith in ‘intangibles’ is just an excuse for unfounded speculation on the character of people we do not know. It is a serious thing to sit in judgment of a stranger’s habits, his courage, his intelligence. His heart! My God, we go around thinking we are qualified, based on a few hours of game footage and a few bland interviews, to determine the measure of a man’s love for the game. Has it ever occurred to you, reader- and I ask this sincerely- what unforgivable hubris that is? What complete and utter fantasy most fan opinions of that kind must be?
::::

These days I cannot so much as hear of Alexei Kovalev without thinking I need to send the man a Hallmark apology and a dozen roses in whatever color is most suggestive of regret, but they don’t have a card for “I’m sorry I called you lazy and disinterested and enigmatic when in reality you’re probably just not quite as good of a player as I wanted you to be, and didn’t express yourself in the cultural idiom to which I am accustomed,” and I haven’t got the budget for roses.

But now the purrbeast is out of the bag, and the heretics who follow the teachings of his Ancestor rush to send their Messiah to the safety of a planet so distant, it knows nothing of Alternia.

Meanwhile, Karkat hates his life and these stupid old squatters and his ancestor and pretty much everything there ever was in the world of forever. Platonically.

The gas masks are cool: that much is undeniable. But sometimes Jake really wishes he could just kiss his boyfriend. Originally for the meme.

Jake and Dirk find the former's quest bed, and all he has to do now is to die on it. Which is actually pretty hard to do, and almost harder to watch. Originally written for the meme.

The Glory of Sport - Chapter 1 - hauntologie - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
“Sid, you in—we in trouble. Big trouble. People trying to kill us. Must run, okay?”

Sidney Crosby's second Olympics didn't go anything like his first.
::::

This story will be posted serially, and some suspension of disbelief may be necessary. This is basically an airport spy thriller starring Sid and Geno.

EVERYONE PARTY, it's time for Sam's Guide to Job Hunting!
It's important to note at the outset, though, that the specifics of this system may not work for everyone. You have to find what works for you. That being said, this system is designed to minimize the amount of a) work and b) thinking you have to do. The latter is important because thinking is hard and causes anxiety and if you have depression, you are likely to find any reason you can not to think. This isn't a character flaw; it's brain chemistry. So. Minimal thinking required. Whatever your system, spend each day wondering "how can I do less work?" and you will find yourself getting more done.

moogle62: fic: TSN; sweet on you (PG-13/R) (1a/3)
summary: BAKERY AU. Mark is Mark, Eduardo owns a bakery/café near the Facebook offices. Mark does not have time to have a thing for him, but he totally, totally does. Sadly for Mark's continued enjoyment of a harassment-free existence, Dustin is still Dustin and is entirely devoted to his causes of a) getting Mark laid, b) acquiring all the gossip, and c) acquiring all the baked goods he can. Featuring novelty shaped cookies, frosting in places frosting should never be, and ~feelings~.
a/n: this happened because I reacted to the end of the film like this: WELL THAT WAS MISERABLE, I NEED SOME CAKE >> CAKE MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER >> CAKE WOULD MAKE MARK BETTER >> BAKERY AU! Hilariously, I know nothing about running bakeries, running websites, or Brazil. ~successful at all things~ This is actually saved on my computer as "diabetes-inducing bakery au", so there's that. CONSIDER YOURSELVES WARNED: THIS IS NOT A GREAT WORK OF STAGGERING GENIUS.

Midnight on the Demon Patrol - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Homestuck
Fighting fire with fire is okay in theory but Detective-Summoner Dave L. Strider figures trying to summon corporeal demons to the mortal plane to fight other demons is likely to backfire spectacularly. Sadly for him his inner Knight gets the vapors at the thought of letting anyone else play guinea pig.

Yup, he is totally hogging the demon. What could go wrong? (Oh no, Dave, why did you have to think that.)

//

Notes: What Asuka wanted: a quick silly smut-tastic xenolicious demon summoner/demon davekat AU pr0n thing.

What Asuka got: every character ever telling her who they were and what they were doing in this AU EVEN ALPHA DAVE AND ROSE SERIOUSLY???, three tons of setup, shiny shiny “what this demon character wants/needs sacrificed to offer their services” oh dear lord meulin’s is EVIL, Dave and Latula bonding, Kankri???, a war between hell dimensions and the ~mortal plane~, and only the quickest bit of tease followed by OH WELP I JUST REMEMBERED THIS WOULD BE V.V. DUBCON AND I AM NOT A DOUCHE LET ME SET THIS UP TO ANGST LONG AND HARD AT LATER DATE.

Note, there's still porn, eventually. But. Yeah. (59,638 words so far)

Homestuck: Mambostuck by toastyhat (Ensemble vid)
Song: 'Nillili Mambo' by Block B. Incredible animated dance vid feat. most of the ensemble. I *love* the gender-irrelevant character design and dance/fighting styles (*Nepeta* holy shit), the aggressive strength of movement, the shifting use of colour and silhouette, seriously this is so fucking good I've watched it six times already.

|| SECONDING C'ESTWHAT'S SUMMARY. I'm so, so, so into the dynamism of this, the colors, the different movements chosen for each character--the transition from John to Rose has given me chills each time, and if anyone wants to explain why Hearts Boxcars's feet are so fucking satisfying, I would be forever indebted. Honestly, I recommend this to anyone who likes musics and vids, it's just that fun.

Lost Teeth Like White Jewels - Chapter 1 - roachpatrol, urbanAnchorite (t_ZM) - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
In which seven and a half sweeps old Karkat Vantas, member of her Imperial Luminesce's Threshecutioner Corps, takes his moirail's kismesis out on an errand, encounters a variety of problems to do with sea monsters, becomes involved in excruciatingly complicated relationship tangles with his moirail's kismesis' inclade and ends up flipping as many tables as he does quadrants. Contains two ocean-going fight scenes, one lusus, distressing incidences of clown cultism, his lawyer, and absolutely no interactions with the quinity whatsoever.

the dog days are over - liketheroad - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
In which much ado is made about possibly innocuous line-changes, boys are dumb, and Jonathan Toews attempts to woo Patrick Kane via signed copies of Twilight.
::::

“Fuck you,” Patrick says again, lower this time. “Fucking try a little harder.”

“What?” Jonny says, doing the stupid blinking again.

Patrick wants to strangle him, but he settles for saying, “The whole time I’ve known you you’ve given one hundred and ten percent to fucking everything you try, including fucking popsicle eating contests, and this is thing you pick to be a slacker about?”

The Blind Leading The Blind - antumbral - Hockey RPF, Sports RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Sidney Crosby has a problem, Jonathan Toews helps him solve it.

Notes:

This was originally written in 2009, at stupid-o-clock in the morning, for an anonymous kink meme. The prompt was Jonathan Toews/Sidney Crosby - Tie fetish, using a tie as a blindfold or to keep wrists bound together, or both.
