    Summary

    Padme lives. She runs.

    --

    Leia is growing in fits and spurts, eating greedily and crying loudly. She stays in a sling on Padme’s chest when they move, Luke held snug in a sling around Obi Wan’s. Luke gets a whole head of thick brown hair while Leia’s is still patchy and bald, but he never matches his sister’s powerful lungs.

    When Padme had been sitting in her high senatorial apartment on Corsucant, holding Anakin’s sweaty hand, she had never imagined she’d be murmuring desperately soothing noises to her fussy daughter while she shot around a corner at stormtroopers, while R2D2 meddles with a ship’s blast doors behind her.

    Luke starts teething on a hot jungle planet where they hunker down for three weeks, sleeping in an abandoned old temple and catching the local wildlife for dinner. Leia takes her first steps in the belly of a Corellian freighter they’ve stowed away on. She wobbles between Padme’s outstretched hands and Obi Wan’s knees and boxes of smuggled luxuries. When she falls down, Obi Wan surges forward, heart in his throat, but Leia laughs.

    Summary

    Anyone can tell you that there aren’t muggleborns in Slytherin. There may be a handful of particularly vicious halfbloods, but there aren’t any muggleborns. No one can say precisely how they know there aren’t muggleborns in Slytherin, but they know that there aren’t. It’s just how things work.

    “Tracey Davis,” Tracey introduces herself.

    Daphne Greengrass lifts one snowy eyebrow. “Davis? Do you mean Davies?”

    If there were any muggleborns in Slytherin, they would be playing a very dangerous game.

    (In which Tracey Davis accidentally tricks nearly everyone into thinking she’s a pureblood, befriends the Bloody Baron, and slowly climbs to greatness.)
