    Summary

    The Mandalorian watches the child silently, and something jagged in his chest comes loose, sinking slowly to the pit of his stomach. He glances between the child and the camera feed, the child’s palm pressed to the screen. The Mandalorian swallows.

    He knows.

    Summary

    What did one call a man who had lost everything? The creed he lived by, his tribe, his home, his family. What was left but an empty shell clad in beskar?

    Din tries to cope with the sudden loss of the kid he had come to view as his own while Luke Skywalker gets his first crack at training a youngling. The Jedi soon realizes he may have been hasty in his decision to take the child away from his adoptive father.

    OR: My attempt to come to terms with the season 2 finale and my take on a fix-it.

    Summary

    Din came awake to faint tugging on his helmet.

    A weight had settled onto his chest, compact and small. The tugging was more of a nudge than a decisive, two-handed attempt to pull the helmet off. Faint, thin scratching accompanied each bump of movement against the beskar.

    Summary

    He’s more alert than he’s felt for the last several weeks as they make their way up the path to a small apartment in Yavin IV’s residential sector in mutual silence. Beyond the jungle line, the top of an ancient temple looms. It’s not really ominous, though. Something about this place seems lighter, and not just for the warm air and the lushness of the natural ambiance.

    Din is the one who knocks on the apartment door; Ahsoka seems to have forgotten how.

    “You okay?” he asks.

    “Fine,” Ahsoka says, in a pitched voice.

    He’s no Jedi -- obviously -- but she seems a little freaked out. Din doesn’t pry. He’s kind of trying to just go with it. He is, as established, very much out of his depth on -- all of this.

    Maybe she’s meditating.

    Summary

    And Luke is the greatest Jedi living, the greatest Jedi that has ever lived, and yet he curls his fingers into the child’s robe to hide their trembling, because he is also Luke Skywalker, who once had a father.

     

    --

    Din Djarin stays.
