Chapter Eleven: Boogeyman

In which Snoke meets baby Jaina for the first time.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Part of Snoke's backstory was pretty influenced by Jeremy Jahns' review of TFA. He actually speculated that Snoke was old enough to basically have hung out with Yoda, and that got the gears in my mind going.

Hello, small one.Collapse )


From becomingkate.

Ask me my top 5 in any category and I'll do my best to answer.
Feel free to ask me more than one category ;)


Chapter 10: Layers and Spirals

In which witnessing Jaina's vulnerability leads Leia to a different look at what she learned about her father.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Just a bit of a warning, there is some -- Han and Leia filtered -- less than flattering observations about Anakin/Vader. Very much their perspective, but...thought I'd warn you.

I was only a child.Collapse )


For genprompt_bingo

Title: Lessons and Secrets

Prompt: Mentors

Summary: Ten snippets of Rey's training back when she was Jaina Skywalker.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Fic under cut. Collapse )


Chapter 9: Birthing Pains

In which Snoke schemes, Ben has a miniature crisis, and Jaina/Rey is born.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Aunt Alora wouldn"t abandon him, would she?Collapse )


For genprompt_bingo.

Title: Necessary Loves

Summary: Ten facts about Alora Danes.

Prompt: Partnership

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Rey's real name is a bit of a shout out to the old EU. I thought it would be appropriate, all things considered.

Fic under cut.Collapse )

Chapter 8: Sunset Ruminations

In which Luke and his wife ponder the future.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

What are you thinking about?Collapse )

Dear horror fandom,

Thanks for being there for me back in 2013. After everything I experienced, it was just really cool to get into a more laidback sort of mood. You have an amazing sense of humor; some of the stuff you post is absolutely hilarious (even if it means that I may never look at certain characters with a straight face ever again), and you've gotten me into things I didn't think I would get into otherwise. Stuff like the Halloween franchise which, when I felt that things got really bad, honestly helped me through some tough times. (And gave me awesome new characters to love, like Laurie Strode, Jamie Lloyd, and so on) It sounds like an odd choice to help someone through bad times, but for me, it gave me something to get excited about and to get involved in. And that's what I needed most. Getting into Stephen King, too, helped me through some tough times. And discussing the books on Reddit was a joy in the roughness that was 2016 -- just talking about how underrated The Tommyknockers is, for example, and gushing over how awesome Alan Pangborn is (because he's one of the coolest characters King has written) was fantastic.

You write fantastic meta as well -- I know that one bit of meta about Rob Zombie's Halloween II actually summed up why I love the film (yeah, I know). And this little piece about Halloween 4 and 5. Just to name two. If you go searching for good horror meta, you'll find quite a few gems. And your videos! By God, when you get creative, you are absolutely fantastic.

So, in short -- thank you, horror fandom. You've brought a lot of good memories here and have really helped me through some rough patches. And for that, you are awesome.
