Windows of the Soul – 2

… here we go again.  I would like you all to know that this was an unnecessarily difficult story to write, because I constrained myself to write it without the use of a particular word.  No prizes for guessing what … Continue reading

Windows of the Soul – 1

200th post on Against the Shadows!  Thanks to everybody who’s stuck around – we’ve come a long way together: I couldn’t have done it without you. Okay, this one owes its roots to Erin’s Just In Case.  Which I went hunting for, … Continue reading

These Things Take Time

This story serves a few purposes: it proves to a friend that I am capable of writing Padmé into a story, it avenges much of my frustration with the love of the other Satine’s life, and it answers a rather difficult ethical question … Continue reading

Normal

A homeschooler’s response to being suddenly thrust into the midst of a bunch of ‘normal’ people her own age.  Let’s just say I wander around all day in a fog of total social bemusement. My figure for the total number of Padawans in the Order is based on a (canonical) … Continue reading

The Tap

I love the stories you can find in population statistics.  I read the census figures for fun.  This was just a natural result.  A Padawan’s-eye view of the numbers of the war.  Apologies to Obi-Wan – I didn’t want to do it, darling, but … Continue reading

Mea Culpa

Halloween Special 2014. I believe in Happy Halloween and Creepy Christmas, at least where specials are concerned – watch out for December! (My exams are not over. And I have a date for tonight. I just love the WordPress schedule … Continue reading

Betrachtungen Hinsichtlich die Steujankrise

An experiment in a new narrative technique. You may want to read this twice to work it out. A clue: Every time you hit ***, there’s a new narrator. The first three are Nasriel, Erirea, and Ben. After that you’re … Continue reading

Healing Point

This really is the end. Promise. And… wow, we’re done! Thanks for coming along on the ride. “I say she is innocent of all wrongdoing and free from this moment forth,” Palpatine said solemnly. The best possible answer on the … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 24

Written mostly in a field in Norfolk in company of six small children playing soccer, and a horse, and a rather splendid game of Mafia. I retired crushed from the game because I was (again) designated the detective and was (as … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 22

It’s… been a while, I’m afraid. Life got busy. But I never actually forgot about this story, it’s been at the top of my drafts list for months. Today: A charm, a clue, and a complete surprise for Obi-Wan. When … Continue reading

On Loan

The story you are about to read is the result of a comment Erin made in passing, a Scarlet Pimpernel story, and a night of insomnia induced by gorgeous wonderful French coffee. I don’t think it is quite what Erin was … Continue reading

Special Features: “Occasion”

There wasn’t room for these scenes in For The Occasion, but they seemed too much fun to pass up altogether. Also, a window into my mind palace (incidentally this palace is called the Blue House; I don’t know why) the night before we began work on … Continue reading

For The Occasion

This story contains one line borrowed from one of Erin’s (as yet) unpublished stories – so thanks a million, Erin – but uses it in a rather different context. Also several lines lifted from a song currently popular. Question is: which … Continue reading

Gradesaver

I occasionally plan stories and set a goal I have to accomplish before I let myself write them. Gradesaver is my reward for having completed five math lessons in the space of a week – with no mistakes at all. Now, … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 21

On we go. Something sweet and easy to swallow today, I think, because some of us are following Growing Pains and… well, we could use the spoonful of sugar after Chapter 54 of that. It took three days for Bant … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 20

My little story’s growing up! It’s out of its teens already. Can you believe this was going to be a quiet little short of 1500 max? So this would be a good time to thank Erin and VJ – and anyone else … Continue reading

In The Morning

In honor of International Atheists’ Day. (See Psalm 14 verse 1) As usual there is somebody to thank: this time it’s Erin, for the kind loan of a truly annoying General, first seen here. It was nearly three years after the … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 2

It was quiet that evening. Strangely quiet. Neither of the two Padawans was in trouble with anybody else’s Master, or late with academic assignments, or ‘not speaking’ to any other Padawans, or working late in either the laboratory or the … Continue reading

Breaking Point – Part 1

Many thanks – as usual! – to Erin, this time for advice regarding Shendi customs and language. “Hi – hi, Master. Sorry I’m late – I forgot – to tell you -” Nasriel was one of the worst Padawans in … Continue reading

Valentine: A Misunderstanding in Several Short Scenes

Many thanks to Rachel for the education, and to Erin for worrying about exactly how cringe-worthy is this going to be, Rosalie? Hope I don’t live up to your fears.   This story is one of the few I have ever dedicated: it’s … Continue reading

Glorious Bastards Part 1

This story was requested by my brother “Domingo”, who also chose the title and  provided a good many details of military tactics. As per his request, the main character is named after Robert E. Lee. I’m not sure where Part 2 will take … Continue reading

Winter Solstice – Part 3 of 3

Second part of Erin’s present. Please note this chapter is based mostly on my own experience: I’ve never had an American – or Coruscanti – Christmas! And I hope it’s not frightfully bad form to include the recipient’s avatar in … Continue reading

Winter Solstice – Part 1 of 3

Many thanks to FanFiction.net’s ruth baulding for the loan of Chakora Seva: he’s worth his weight in glitterstim! A Week Before Solstice, or, The Ghost of Christmas To Come. In midwinter on Coruscant, although the temperature rarely dropped much below freezing, … Continue reading

At the Going Down of the Sun

This story is in honor of Remembrance Sunday (UK). Dedicated to the memory of the ANZACs in general, and one Quartermaster-Sergeant in particular. “Yow! What was that?” Ben thrust his head out from under his blankets in shock as another … Continue reading

Manhunt – Part 9

Onward down the passage, leaving damp footprints. At last, quite abruptly, the way ended in a solid stone wall, a perfect dead-end. Obi-Wan raised his lightsaber to read the words carved in odd, flowing characters roughly at eye level. “This … Continue reading
