Back From the Future: Episode VI The Clone Wars by [archiveofourown.org profile] Ariel_Sojourner
Luke and Vader travel back in time to the Clone Wars era and end up fixing everything. all the things! <3

Fast, Thorough, and Sharp as a Tack by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock
"No, seriously, Princess. This would be a lot easier for both of us if you'd get the chip off your shoulder."

And what sort of help do you imagine I need from you? Leia bit back the tart reply. Her mother would say she was being snotty. Because she was be snotty, and prickly, and defensive -- all her character flaws, wrapped up in one neat package.

"What sort of help do you have in mind?" she managed. Not civil, exactly, but she could do worse. Had done worse. Many times.

Han shrugged. "I don't know. Whatever you need."
Han and Leia in the early days after Yavin. Oh my heart.

The Boy from the Stars by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lefaym
Beru has spent enough time with her sister's children to know that some babies are difficult. But the way Luke cries isn't the same as the others she's known. He doesn't scream loud enough to pierce her eardrums, he doesn't rage or whine when he is hungry or his diaper needs changing. The med-droid at Anchorhead says he is in perfect health. But still, Luke cries on and on with tiny, heartbreaking sobs.

"What could he possibly want?" Owen asks her one morning, his voice heavy with frustration.

"I don't know," Beru says, because she thinks that Owen will scoff if she suggests that Luke is grieving. He would be right, too, Beru thinks -- how could an infant barely a month old be aware of all that he has lost?
Lovely look at Beru during Luke's infancy.

"Do you ever meditate?"

"Not really," she says. She's always preferred to be active, that sort of concentrated reflection isn't for her.

"You are very like your father," Kenobi says. People frequently compare her to Bail, and Leia feels a warm glow every time it happens, but this doesn't quite feel like a compliment and Leia frowns. "Meditation can help you," he says.
Leia accompanies the droids to the surface of Tatooine and meets Ben Kenobi, and his young friend, Luke. Aw heart.

How the Other Half Lives by [archiveofourown.org profile] aradian_nights
Thoughtful, enjoyable AU series where Luke is raised as Prince of Alderaan and Leia is living on Tatooine with the Larses. Six complete stories so far (and one in progress covering the events of ANH). Does some really interesting things with Leia, especially.

Leia and Cassian and the way common language ties people together. Lovely.

Poe and BB-8 have a conversation. Oh heart.

The New Guy by [archiveofourown.org profile] ambiguously
There's a long moment, and later Ezra knows it's a moment where he could have given in to sorrows and angers he's been carrying since he was seven years old. But he can sense the Force in Luke, can sense it like a beacon. He sees the honest, worried confusion on his open face and in his clear eyes. He's not a Sith or another servant of the Dark Side. He's a lonely kid who lost his family and got a lucky shot at the Death Star. Ezra doesn't think much of the Rebellion's new hero, but then he gets to know him a little. Oh boys.

between everything, yourself, and home by [archiveofourown.org profile] napricot
Steve laughs, and—miracle he had scarcely dared to pray for—Bucky does too, a brief but bright burst of sound that Steve hasn't heard in decades. If he could have, he'd have cupped the sound in his palms like sweet water from a well, he'd have swallowed it down as if he were dying of thirst. Instead he turns his face into Bucky's shoulder to hide the sting of sudden tears, and Bucky brings his metal hand up to cup Steve's head, thumb stroking briefly across the line of his jaw. The shaky breath Bucky lets out says Steve's not the only one abruptly affected.

Steve's heart beats faster, too much gratitude and love to fill its four chambers. Bucky's heart is as steady as ever, the metronome by which Steve has measured his life, and Steve tries to match it again.
Exquisitely lovely recovery for Bucky (and Steve too), with lots and lots of delicious pining. (Peggy is mentioned but oddly absent otherwise.)

Cards Against Certain Avengers by [archiveofourown.org profile] somehowunbroken
The Avengers play Cards Against Humanity, and nobody expects Steve to be as good at it as he is. Hee!

The Fallout of Anakin Skywalker's Knighting by [archiveofourown.org profile] anecdotalist
Anakin is Knighted and decides to give his Padawan braid to Padme instead of to Obi-Wan after his Knighting. Then he learns that there's a lot more meaning to that Tradition than he had realized but is it too late to fix things with Obi-Wan? in which Anakin means well but fucks up and tries to fix it. Oh heart.

The Moon Represents My Heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] afrai
"You watch out," said Chirrut. "I'm going to prove it. The Force is with you, Baze."

This was a perfectly conventional thing for one novitiate to say to another, by way of praise or encouragement. It was typical of Chirrut that he should have made it weird.

Baze might not be the most insightful person in the world, and he wasn't inclined to detect admiration where it didn't exist. But it was clear even to him that Chirrut's childhood attachment had developed into a raging crush.

Baze had had crushes himself. It was natural. Chirrut was being bizarre about his, but perhaps that was only what one should expect from Chirrut.
Really lovely backstory for Baze and Chirrut.

The Question, Twenty Years Late by Eirian Erisdar
AU in which Satine lives, and so Obi-Wan goes to Mandalore after RotS. Oh my heart.

Something Mysteriously Formed by [archiveofourown.org profile] kaasknot
Chirrut held the staff before him, balancing it on a single finger. "Neither too heavy nor too light. Do you see, Baze? Balance is vital. Mortal beings require the world of the material to survive." He tilted the staff one way, so it yawed over his finger toward the ground. "We require food, shelter, and companionship to maintain our bodies. But too far, and we kill our spirits." He shifted the staff back to a perfect horizontal above the pavement. "On the other end, our souls require nourishment as well. We require faith, belief, trust, love. We require calm in the midst of the storm." He let the staff overbalance to the other side. "Yet if we focus exclusively on these, our physical form withers and dies." He returned the staff to the ground. Chirrut finds a way to live and hope and bring hope to others after the Empire comes to power. Lovely.

The Tale of Amidala by [archiveofourown.org profile] LurkingCrow
"But the federation tried to kill the negotiators and invaded, taking Queen Amidala captive. They demanded her surrender, but she refused. They threatened her with bloodshed unless she signed their treaty, but she would not. They tried every trick to make her give in, but she persisted."
"Because she was brave?"
"Because she was brave."

(brave, courageous, determined, foolhardy, reckless padmé. queen of our hearts, sister of our soul. oh why did you always rush ahead of us? you who would give anything to protect us, why would you not let us do the same? foolish, wonderful, lost padmé.)
One of Padme's handmaidens runs into Beru and Luke on Tatooine. *sobs* Lovely.

This Tired World Could Change by [archiveofourown.org profile] dharmaavocado
"Did you lose your nerve?" the monk asked cheerfully.

"My nerve?" Baze said, which was a surprise as he meant to tell the man to leave.

"You were staring so hard I assumed you were working up the courage to come speak to me. I am quite intimidating, I know, but I can assure you I'm very open to being chatted up by handsome men."

"I wasn't—you're blind," said Baze, startled, taking in the pale blue sweep of the monk's eyes.

The man opened in his mouth in exaggerated surprise. "Am I? And all this time I thought the universe was just poorly lit. Thank you, sir, for enlightening me."

"That was a stupid thing to say," Baze admitted, and the monk grinned wide, showing too much gum.

"It was." He cocked his head to the side. "I was hoping to employ your assistance, actually. It's very hard being blind, you know."

"And yet you seemed to be managing quite well."
This is both hilarious and lovely, with Baze and Chirrut meeting after the Republic falls, and falling in love on a space road trip. Oh my heart.

Two Days on Yavin 4 by [archiveofourown.org profile] scaramouche
"I can hear you thinking," Baze says.

"An old man's melancholy," Chirrut says. "I'm allowed that sometimes."

Chirrut's fingers are still on Baze's face, so he feels it when Baze opens his eyes. "Tell me."

"I would wish you a happier life."

"And I would wish you eyes that work again," Baze says. "But then you wouldn't be you, and I wouldn't love you, and then what would I do?"

"Be less stressed, I'd wager."

"Ugh." Baze throws an arm around Chirrut, pulling him tight for an impressive hug. Chirrut presses his face against Baze's neck, and sighs when Baze strokes a large palm down the back of Chirrut's head. "I know you didn't mean that."

"I didn't mean that," Chirrut agrees. "We keep each other safe."

"Oh, we now?" Baze says with a laugh. "Not the Force?"

Chirrut ignores the tease, for he'd rather to move his mouth up Baze's neck, over the edges of his beard, to find his mouth. Baze kisses him back, softly at first, and then not.
Baze and Chirrut in their brief time on Yavin IV. Oh heart.

He couldn't believe he'd made Chirrut Îmwe come untouched. The thought felt like sacrilege, but a spectacularly impressive form of sacrilege. He would feel proud if he wasn't so tired. Baze and Chirrut meet when Chirrut is a sex slave working for the Hutts. And it's not even actually AU. Funny and sad and sweet.

Modern AU in which Poe accompanies Finn and Rey to Han's funeral and quietly pines for them. Lovely. (note: it's all lower case, originally posted to tumblr)

Rey tries to learn the constellations from D'Qar. Leia helps. GROSS SOBBING.

Illuminations by [archiveofourown.org profile] stitchy
In anticipation of their separation they pass the rest of the night together in accordance with only their own traditions and personal oaths. They speak their prayers into kisses, setting lips to skin like scripture to page. Passion, Attachment, and Emotion - instead of obstacles they are the walls behind which they can take cover in a galaxy rumbling with threat of war. So long as they have each other they know peace and sustenance. Despite what the masters of the Whills may think, their dedication to the Force is not obstructed by their partnership, but in fact magnified between them. What better cause is there to serve a higher power than its promise to bind all things now in the hereafter, them to each other most of all? Really lovely look at Baze and Chirrut from Chirrut's POV, through the end of the Clone Wars and Order 66.

Long Ride Ahead by [archiveofourown.org profile] saellys
This is a really lovely and melancholy AU where Bodhi and Jyn grow up together on Jedha and that changes a few things in the story.

Acts of Service by [archiveofourown.org profile] afrai
He's prepared to tell Chirrut who sent him, but Chirrut doesn't seem interested. When Baze brings it up, Chirrut only says:

"So it wasn't your idea? That's something."

"Don't you want to know whose idea it was?"

"If I tried to keep track of all the people who want me dead, I wouldn't have time for anything else," says Chirrut.

"They'll try again."

Chirrut spreads his hands, looking pious. "All is as the Force wills it. I am only a humble mendicant and fortune-teller. They will forget me when their anger has faded."

He pauses, then adds, "They weren't Imperial?"

"Say that again," says Baze, "and I'll cut off your tongue."
Lovely story from Baze's POV.

Crowning Glory by [archiveofourown.org profile] imaginary_golux
It has become a ritual they both find soothing, here in this new place: something they can rely on to stay the same, when everything else has changed. For Rey, Finn knows, it is a chance to remind herself that she has, at long last, someone who truly cares for her above all other things. For Finn, it is a chance to turn his deadly hands to a task which is only and purely about love.

So every morning, clean and dressed and nearly ready for the day, Rey sits down on the little stool beside the bed and Finn picks up the soft-bristled brush from their nightstand and begins, slowly and gently, to brush her hair.
Soft and lovely slice of domestic Finn/Rey. <3

"It is not such a bad match, Lord Vader and your daughter."

"I thought you lived in poverty, monk," he said the first time, touching the edge of the bowl resting in Chirrut's open palms.

"Poverty, yes." Chirrut sipped the soup and hid his smile behind the bowl. "Starvation is not required."

"A flexible religion." Baze's voice was dry and just slightly edged with amusement. "In my experience, that's the best kind."

Chirrut laughed aloud. "We'll get along well, then."
really lovely backstory for Baze/Chirrut.

'You're not a doctor, are you?'

'I'm a monk,' said Chirrut, and patted him on the chest. 'So if you die from your wounds, I'll know what to do with your spirit.'

He knows about Organa's daughter, of course. Princess, senator, now a confirmed traitor; famed for her ethical code and her wit. Some even remark that she is beautiful.

Now he knows that she is brave enough to face him unflinching with lies in her mouth.

"I believe in that," he gestured to it all. "That it will all still be here. Forever."

"The light of those stars may already be dead," Galen turned to him, hooded eyes burning cold. "What about civilizations? What about all of us? What will the Empire make of us?"

He sucked in a breath, the factory crumbled and a faceless entity never even apologized. Three thousands souls that breathed in and never breathed out again with no more fanfare than a tiny broken piston.

"I don't know," he said again, but this time he met Galen's eyes. "But I don't want to help make it happen anymore."

"Do you feel it?" Chirrut asks.

The softness of his voice makes Baze shudder. He thinks that maybe he does, or maybe he wants to, for Chirrut. When Baze opens his eyes, Chirrut is very close to him. It doesn't surprise him at all when Chirrut kisses him. Baze's eyes flutter closed again, then open when Chirrut pulls away.

"Was that the Force?" Baze asks. His voice comes out cracked and heavy.

"That was me," Chirrut says, and kisses him again.
Melacholy, heartbreaking Baze/Chirrut, from Baze's POV.

Leia Organa: A Critical Obituary – you're always being judged by Malcolm Sheppard
Leia Organa, the politician and revolutionary who led the defeat of the Galactic Empire, died after a short illness. She was 60 years old. Hers was a life laced with controversy concerning everything from her tactics to her very ancestry, but her intelligence, commitment to the Republican cause, and place at the heart of the Rebellion, and later the Resistance against Neo-Imperialism, remains the indisputable core of her legacy.

"Save your wisdom for a book," replies Baze.

"That's why I'm telling you. Write this down," Chirrut says imperiously, and Baze chuckles, a dry, comforting rasp in his ears.

Faith, Chirrut thinks, is a bit like sand. In small handfuls, it seems barely anything—but gather enough of it, and you could build yourself a beach, an island. A place to stand.

The Best Kind of Game by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock
After that, taking care of the General -- he still had a hard time thinking of her as Leia -- got to be a game. The best kind of game, because it was one he could always win. There were a thousand things he couldn’t do in the war: he couldn’t always hit the target, he couldn’t stop pilots dying by the dozens, he couldn’t even get Jessika Pava to stop bending her undercarriage on nighttime landings. But he could almost always find one small thing to make General Organa happy, and that was enough for him. Poe takes care of Leia. Oh heart.

Your father and I couldn't sit by and do nothing, Poe's mother had told him all those years ago. Couldn't sit by and do nothing.

She had loved him so much that she risked everything to make the galaxy he would grow up in a safer place. Not only for him, but for all the children who had yet to be born.

Two long, involving stories where Obi-Wan goes back in time at the moment of his death to nine years before the events of TPM; he makes his peace with Qui-Gon, mentors his younger self, and manages to start changing the timeline, hopefully for the better. And it gives excellent Obi-Wan in twice the usual amount!

Finn only rolled his eyes and got on with it. He didn't tell them about growing up eating the same routine meals, how the others would smuggle each other the best items as tokens of affection. He didn't tell them that bread became a language of love.
Rey and Finn take up gardening, much to the delight of the Resistance. Oh heart.

They were at Mos Bina (Come and see) by [archiveofourown.org profile] TwinEnigma
Fascinating AU where Alderaan is destroyed earlier and Leia ends up a slave on Tatooine and Luke uses local mythology (and Obi-Wan, fitting well into the role of (unwitting in this case) trickster) to free her, and lead the slaves in an uprising.

All Hail the New Kids by [archiveofourown.org profile] dsudis
"I can tell you what Finn told me about what he's used to, why he needs to do things this way."

Rey shook her head. "I understand, I think. First Order couldn't let Stormtroopers be distracted or suborned by desire, so they trained them to separate sex from affection. You're trying to ease Finn into connecting them again."

Poe blinked at that neat summation, which made all his floundering in the last two days seem like a sensible plan. He nodded.

"I want to help. I want--" Her shoulders jerked. "I want to be with Finn, I want to be--I want to not be alone."

Poe nodded, preparing to assure her that she could take her time, or that it was totally normal to be disappointed that her sex life with their mutual boyfriend was going to be decidedly nonstandard for a while.

Before he could say any of that, Rey went on, "I just don't know how."
Poe, Finn, and Rey work out how to be together in a way that works for all of them.

Mine by [archiveofourown.org profile] PinkCanary
She and Finn are still really just learning how to be people who know how to be around people, and maybe that’s part of what makes it work. The fact that they have each other to ask questions, and try to sort it all out together. And maybe neither of them would even be offended if Poe found them just a little bit ridiculous. Like when they make it their mission to try and rank every single dessert served in the mess, or when Rey grabs Poe’s helmet in the middle of a conversation and pulls it on without comment, only to grin manically at him. Or the way that Finn has to sometimes consciously stop himself in the middle of a sentence, when he’s about to remind them about the rules.

But the best part is that Poe never does find them ridiculous, and even makes a point of indulging them whenever possible.
Rey catalogues the things that are hers. Lovely.

The bond between Master and Padawan is the closest the Jedi permit themselves. Forming it, letting go of it: the hardest lesson, which needs to be relearned throughout one's life.

5 Times Anakin's Ghost Gave Unsolicited Parenting Advice by [archiveofourown.org profile] Callioope
Luke finally turned to look at his father's ghost. Despite everything, Luke noted with some amusement that his father still preferred to appear as his twenty-three-year old self. Even ten years ago, it had felt strange seeing his father this way; now it was downright ridiculous. To see them sitting together, one might have thought Luke the father and Anakin the son.

"I would prefer to be remembered this way," Anakin said, reading Luke's thoughts. "As your mother saw me."

"Mother." Luke sighed and looked back to the horizon, at the trailing orange-red glow of the set sun. "What would she have done?"

"Oh, something brilliant, probably," Anakin said, smiling. "Something well beyond the likes of us."
Exactly what the title says: Luke and Anakin's ghost watching over Rey through the years.

While Rey sips her tea, Leia stands behind her and combs the knots out of her hair. Her hands are cool and gentle and if, from time to time, they seem to shake, Rey doesn't say anything. It should feel strange, being fussed over by this woman she barely knows, but there's a connection between them that's deeper than grief, deeper than the need for amends. Rey senses it, but she's too tired, too overwhelmed to think about it now. All she can think is, This must be what it's like to be someone's daughter. This must be what it's like to feel safe. ♥REY♥ Lovely.

Hot, sweet, poignant - this runs the gamut. Wonderful.

The First Prayers of Man by [livejournal.com profile] destina
Heartbreakingly sad and beautiful, this story captures Vorenus and Pullo's relationship after the events of "The Kalends of February" perfectly.

Star Wars
What Remains by [livejournal.com profile] bwinter
A series of short vignettes in which people from the original trilogy reflect on people from the prequels. Subtle and nicely done.

West Wing
The Age of Aquarius by Speranza
Season three Josh/Donna hijinks. Sweet and funny, and damn, I wish the show had done this.

Even Though I Know You’re Leaving by Aldalindil
Slightly alternative ending to RotJ, wherein Luke and Vader have a little more time to bond. Beautifully, simply written, it made me bawl like a baby.

Inheritance by [livejournal.com profile] ladylisse
Wonderful bit of character work exploring Princess Leia.
