    Summary

    “I bleed in excess, Ferdinand,” Hubert says—a murmur, vulnerable, momentary—in a different voice, with a different heart. When he turns back his head, he holds Ferdinand’s gaze like a hand holds a lance. “You simply do not see it.”

    Ferdinand looks in wide-eyed shock at the man across from him, whose dark hair curtains one side of his face even now, rendering all expressions incomplete. He wishes, for a stark, clear moment, to reach across the distance between them and brush aside that hair, tenderly, a gesture lost to history, and find what it keeps from him.

    A foal, a correspondence, and a realization, after the war.

    Summary

    Won’t somebody help me chase the shadows away…

    As much as Artemy wants to spend the night with his colleague, after the man makes an offer that they might take pleasure from each other if they're so inclined, when a butcher lays at last with his lover what will he see? A body to be caressed, or harvested? Haunted by visions of his place being to cut along the Lines, haunted by guilt over past choices, the Haruspex fears he won't be much of a close, intimate friend to Daniil Dankovsky after all...

    Summary

    Luke scampered the short distance and tumbled into the cave, scooting behind a rock at the entrance. He waited and listened until he picked up distant howling that went on for minutes, or maybe hours, and then, finally, the faint moo of banthas as they moved away. They were leaving. Whew.

    That left Luke with a much bigger problem: The Sand People knew he was here, they’d likely sabotaged or stolen the speeder by now, and he was stranded in a cave with nothing but a rifle with three rounds left, a survival pack good for only a couple of days, and no transport home. Great. Luke leaned against the wall of the cave and tipped his head back, thumping the back of it against the stone over and over. He closed his eyes and wished for rescue.

    Someone groaned.

    A Tatooine farm boy finds a wounded Mandalorian in a cave. You know the rest. This is not dark fiction.
