beatrice_otter: Jedi fighting against a blue background (blue Jedi)
I just realized that after the [community profile] starwarsrollingremix authors were revealed, I never posted my story here! There was one starter story, The Devil in the Dust by [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade, and three chains of remixes. I was the first remix in my chain. It was an interesting experience. Obviously, we didn't get to pick what story we remixed, and we only got two weeks from the first time we got it to the due date. So there wasn't any time to ponder or think, you just had to get it and go. It wasn't a fic I would have picked to remix; for one thing, I'm pretty sure there were some thematic stuff going on that I was missing that would make the plot make sense. But I didn't have time to let it sit and ponder it, even though that feeling of missing something crucial made me really leery about remixing it. Remixing works best, imo, when you take something to pieces and play with the guts of it. But you can't do that if you're not quite sure what the guts ARE. Which left me ignoring theme and plot and doing a character remix.. But it was a time travel/vision thing--none of the three characters were from the same time period, so I could either just ... retell the story (boring!) or take the setting (desert) and the characters and look at how the deserts they grew up in shaped them. And throw in some meta about the Force while we're at it, because they're all strong in the Force. So that's how I ended up with my story.

As to the title, both the desert and the Force are vast beyond knowing, and the remix subtitle refers to both the problems I was having pinning down the original fic well enough to remix it, and to the old saying the devil is in the details (picking up on the title of the original).

The thing about Force-ghosts—or whatever the proper term was, neither Obi-Wan nor Yoda ever said—was that they didn't feel like living beings. )

Relationships: Poe Dameron/Finn
Characters: Leia Organa, Rey, Luke Skywalker, Hux (Star Wars), Phasma (Star Wars)
Additional Tags: Poe is very brave and would do anything for Leia, here comes the General, Poe Dameron hurts so pretty, Implied/Referenced Torture, Finn has a plan, Rey and Luke have the Force, Leia has everything else, General Hux is not a good person, Poe is a battlefield flirt, First Time
Summary: Poe turns big dark eyes on him and Finn feels something ache in his chest. “Tell me, Finn, how is that gonna look, buddy? You save my life, we take you in and then we throw you back when it suits us? I wouldn’t fight for a Resistance like that and neither would you.”

He wants to say, yes I would, but with Poe looking up at him the words die on his lips.


Reccing this because I love how in-character Leia and Luke both are.

Here is a Star Wars question for you guys!  And I hope someone who's been reading the new comics can tell me if there is a canon answer for this. When Darth Vader learned about Luke, how much did he find out?  Like, did he think that Obi-Wan had been raising him as an apprentice, or did his agents go to Tatooine and dig up that Luke had been raised by his aunt and uncle on their moisture farm?

You know what's really frustrating?  Finding a fic with a really awesome, interesting, and unique idea, but so badly executed/poorly executed that I can't bear to read it.  Everything from homonym fail to characterization fail.  (But, like really weird homonym fail, too--more proofreading was needed.)  But it was a really great premise that I wanted to explore!  And there was so much promise; they'll probably be a really great ficcer when they get some more experience.  But this ... gah.  What finally threw me out so hard I stopped reading was when a Luke Skywalker who had been raised as a Jedi was more hotheaded and aggressive than canon!Luke had been in the same situation on screen.  Like, yelling and shoving people when canon!Luke just shrugged and ignored it.

Title: From That Eternal Silence
Author:

Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: G
Characters: Luke Skywalker, Rostek Horn
Word Count: 1,653
Written For: [personal profile] jedibuttercup
Prompt: Luke finding out more about Obi-Wan's and Anakin's career as Jedi
Spoilers: I, Jedi
Summary: Tho' much is taken, much abides

 

 

AN: Rostek Horn’s partner Jedi Nejaa Halcyon was killed during the Clone Wars; during the Purges Rostek protected Halcyon’s widow and son by marrying the widow and destroying any records tying her and her son Valin to Nejaa Halcyon.  Valin’s son Corran did not learn of his heritage until he was a grown man; when he visited Rostek soon afterwards, he found that Rostek had preserved as much information about the Jedi as he could by encoding it and splicing it into the genes of the plants he grew for a hobby.

Yes, I know this turned out to be more about Rostek Horn than about Luke Skywalker.  Sorry.  I wasn't planning it that way.  I had it all written in Luke's POV, and then I realized it may have been in his POV but it wasn't really about him.  Aargh.
