  3. Summary

    "The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices on downtown posts and billboards, no mentions or advertisements in local newspapers. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not."

     

    "Magic," the man in the grey suit repeats, turning the word into a laugh. "This is not magic. This is the way the world is, only very few people take the time to stop and note it."

     

    "The heart of the tale and the ideas behind it are simple. Time has altered and condensed their nuances, made them more than story, greater than the sums of their parts. But that requires time. The truest tales require time and familiarity to become what they are."

     

    "Then the iron gates shudder and unlock, seemingly by their own volition. They swing outward, inviting the crowd inside.
    Now the circus is open.
    Now you may enter."

    -The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern

    Summary

    Padmé died, came back, and has survived the Battle of Theed. Palpatine is chancellor, Qui-Gon is dead, and Anakin is apprenticed to Obi-Wan. She's on-track to get in position to undermine her husband's Fall and Palpatine's empire.

    Except details have changed, in ways even she doesn't know. Will that help or hinder her efforts?

    Summary

    When Padmé Amidala was eight years old and entering politics, her grandmother put blocks on her memory. It was meant to protect her. Instead, a Sith destroyed the Republic.

    Only after she died did she remember what her grandmother had done, that it was all fixable, and she demanded that she be sent back. She'd meant her body, which mainly had a repairable-but-broken hyoid bone and was right there.

    Instead, her grandmother sent her back in time…to before the memory blocks had ever been put in place. She's a twenty-seven-year-old woman in her eight-year-old body.

    And this time, when Palpatine and the Jedi show up and start tugging at her Force abilities? She's going to know what she's doing.

    Summary

    “You are my greatest love. And tonight, you are my greatest sorrow.”

     

     

    Diana gently rubs the glass of Steve’s watch from his father. It is still ticking, still moving forward.

    The thought occurs to her in that moment of Steve’s mother, of a woman also experiencing her greatest sorrow.

    Of someone who will never, ever know what Steve has done.
