    Summary

    “The relationship between Sith Master and Apprentice is both reciprocal and contingent,” I told him during one of our earliest lessons. “As the Master, I owe you my knowledge and strength. As the Apprentice, you owe me your loyalty and obedience. These obligations are to be put to the test periodically. Should one of us fall short, it is the responsibility of the other to destroy him. We either learn from these tests and grow stronger, or we die.” I paused to underscore the point. “One day, my young friend, you may even try to kill me.”

    When the Rebel operative Ahsoka is captured, the Emperor uses the opportunity to test Vader's loyalty.

    Summary

    Anakin, on a brief shore leave, attempts to catch up with his two favorite non-Jedi people: Padme Amidala and Chancellor Palpatine. Anakin is bad at multi-tasking. And when it comes to affection, he is downright greedy. After an indiscretion (or two) in the Senate building, and a late-night 'Welcome Home' party, Anakin finds himself facing the consequences of his actions. They are not was he was expecting.

    Anakin/Padme, Padme/Palpatine, Anakin/Palpatine…and Anakin/Padme/Palpatine because I haven’t found any (yet), and it needs to exist because reasons.

    Summary

    Madam fulfills her vague threat(?) to visit Vetinari after the serial killer business of the summer has been wrapped up. She is here to ask pointed questions, make insinuations, and to tell Vetinari to purchase a lint roller. Also, possibly, to meet Downey. For no particular reason at all. Havelock, dear, why are you making that face? Do desist. It's unattractive.

    (as always, ratings/tags may change)

    (no need to have read much of the previous series, to be fair)
