    Summary

    Aposematism in animals is designed to prevent attack. It doesn't always work, sometimes it's ineffective against some predators, sometimes it isn't. As a primary defence mechanism, Newt is a colourful individual with his blue coat and golden hair. His secondary defences aren't visible however and often are what surprise his opponents the most. Bright creatures tend to be very toxic to predators, but mammals like honey badgers are aggressively defensive. Newt is a Hufflepuff and the emblem of his house suits him well. Signalling theory tells you that Newt warns off predators and opponents with his colours, but when they don't take heed he'll show his claws and fight tooth-and-nail. It's what survivors do.

    And Newt Scamander is definitely a survivor.

    Summary

    Picture, if you will, a shiny new High General Obi-Wan who has just been given control of the GAR on the logic he's the only Jedi with war experience. Except he's never actually organized an army before, and he needs help.

    Enter Co-High General Jocasta Nu, who runs the GAR like she would the Archive. Everything organized and cataloged, her precious Collection now expanded to include the entire GAR.

    And well, she's a librarian....

    The Sith never stood a chance.

    Summary

    “A weapons system?” Cody frowns. New weapons would of course be welcome, but he did not see why that warranted a midnight chat in the Jedi Temple.

    Qui-Gon stares into his tea cup. “Sort of, but not exactly. Tell me Cody, do you know anything about our beliefs about death, our traditions around it?”

    OR

    In a universe where the reactor room fight on Naboo ended differently, Marshal Commander Cody of the 212th Attack Battalion serves under General Qui-Gon Jinn. It’s not a perfect partnership but they make it work, through mutual respect and a lot of tea. Until the Negotiator is selected to participate in the experimental Soul Project, the binding of a Jedi’s essence to a warship.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi is not what Cody expected. But he might be what Cody needs.
