    Summary

    littlebastardreviews posted the collected facts from the 2014 UK Editions of Harry Potter: and this fact caught my eye.

    'Only one non-magical person has ever managed to get as far as the Hogwarts Sorting Hat before being exposed as a Squib.'

    But, gosh it just makes me want a story where a squib did make it through. So here's a drabble about a squib with a quick mind and a hand-me-down wand, who refuses to be denied her birthright.

    --

    when the hat drops over her eyes it asks, 'well what do we have here?'

    she’s got a forged hogwarts letter with penmanship that’s perfect down to the ink splatter;

    she’s got a complicated string of owls, only half of them forged, from parents to administration to ministry that’s so complicated her name ended up on the first year roll call anyway.

    she’s got ten arguments, four pleas, and one smothered threat on the tip of her mental tongue for why the house that comes out of this hat’s brim better not be 'squib'

    she’s got a lighter up her sleeve and an eight and a half inch wand in her belt that will never, ever work for her.

    'well,' says the hat, 'better be slytherin then'

    Summary

    For a moment, Ahsoka could only bow her head as Obi-Wan stopped in front of her. She could feel his steely gaze boring into her, the disappointment that made Ahsoka bow her head lower.

    Finally, Obi-Wan said, “I thought Anakin told me that the speeder was not yet ready to be driven.”

    “It wasn’t,” Ahsoka replied.

    “Do you care to explain to me why—” Obi-Wan started, and Ahsoka drew her shoulders inward at the iciness edging his voice.

    And then Obi-Wan sighed: a long, tired sigh that made Ahsoka feel infinitely worse, because she only ever heard him sigh like that whenever Anakin had done something.

    [or: a speeder accident forces Ahsoka to call Obi-Wan for help while Anakin's away on a mission.]

    Summary

    “Where is he?” Ahsoka asked. Her voice sounded too loud in the silence—an unfamiliar, unwelcome break in the tight quiet between all of them. She tried to catch Obi-Wan’s eyes, but he was already looking away. “Master Kenobi,” she started to say. “Obi-Wan.”

    For a moment, Ahsoka was afraid that Obi-Wan wouldn’t answer. She saw him blink rapidly, and then he brought a hand up to his mouth, wiped roughly across his lips, his beard before turning back around to Ahsoka and Rex. “You should sit down,” he said at last.

    [or after the events of Order 66, Rex and Ahsoka find Obi-Wan and discover some unwanted answers.]
