    Summary

    Yoda deposited two teacups in front of Obi-Wan and Jocasta and took the third for himself. "Unsettling things in the Archives, there always have been. Around Sith Lords, all the more, and Revan was one of the strongest."
    "Master, it was not what was in the Archives, but what wasn't."
    Yoda paused, teacup halfway to his mouth. "Another Kamino, you think we have?"

     

     

    After Obi-Wan brings the Archive's distinct lack of records in the aftermath of the Mandalorian Wars to her attention, Jocasta Nu goes on a hunt through the Library of the Republic. She finds a friend, an unnerving conspiracy around a Supreme Commander of the Republic, and, just possibly, a Sith.

    Summary

    Luke was absolutely stunned. He knew his insistence on being involved with the Republic's reclamation efforts had made people uncomfortable but he didn't realise they'd become this eager to get rid of him.
    "For the good of the Republic," Chancellor Cressa insisted, as if it should be obvious. And perhaps the man thought that Luke's inevitable murder should, obviously, be for the good of the Republic, for all Luke could tell.
    "Of course," Luke spoke as calmly as he could manage.
    It would hardly be the worst thing he'd been asked to do “for the good of the Republic,” after all.

    Luke Skywalker, the Jedi Exile, just wants to try to help the Republic rebuild after the Mandalorian Wars but instead finds himself in an arranged political marriage.
    Din Djarin, the de facto Mand’alor, is trying his best to pull a defeated people back from the brink of collapse, and his new husband is decidedly not making things less difficult.

    Summary

    Emperor Palpatine dies unexpectedly a year before the Death Star would be deemed operational. His heir apparent, Darth Vader, startles the galaxy by passing up the throne, and then passing it on to the newly-elected Senator of Alderaan, Leia Organa, after the Force leads him to directly to her. The new Empress inherits a terrorized galaxy, a broken Empire to tear down from the inside, and the weirdest second-in-command anyone can imagine.

    Or, Vader accidentally hands the galaxy to his rebel daughter, Bail Organa panics professionally, Leia attempts not to get assassinated, and Palpatine rolls in his grave.

    Summary

    Leia struggles with the ill-gotten power of being the Empress, and the less understandable power that is the Force. Vader is as Vader always is—only somewhat helpful.

    Summary

    "Rost, I'm not going to run in the Proving."

    No one survived in the wilds for long if they reacted loudly to surprise. Rost sipped his tea. And then carefully, calmly, said, "What did you see in your nightmare?"

    Aloy opened her mouth. And it was like another woman's voice came from her lips as she said, "The end of the world."
