    Summary

    Anakin Skywalker is a Jedi and being a part of their Order means that he is protected and accepted.

    The war is over and the Republic has to recover from the crimes of the Sith Lord, the Jedi have to figure out what it means to be peacekeepers again and the Clones have to learn how to be more than expendable soldiers.

    Or: The self-indulgent fix-it in which Mace politely tells Chancellor Palpatine to fuck off when the man wants access to a child of the Order, 14 years of Sith grooming are avoided, and when the war ends, the Jedi and the Clones have adopted each other and are rather unwilling to let go.

    Summary

    "The Dai Bendu language was spoken by the members of the ancient Order of Dai Bendu on the frozen planet of Ando Prime. The name of the Je'daii Order was forged in that language."

    "Every language is like a one-of-a-kind species. It captures unique conceptualizations of the world and has its own ways of constructing words, phrases and sentences for communicating ideas. As we compare the words and structures of various languages, we come to a greater understanding of our world. (...) Language captures how we perceive the world around us and how we relate to one another, it defines who we are. The Mother tongue language we grow up with is the one used to express what is in our hearts; our heart language."

    "Studying language is invaluable for learning about other cultures and mapping their respective developments, histories, myths, customs, etc. Linguistics also helps us understand and document geographical /environmental influences, periods of migration/diaspora, origin of certain spiritual beliefs, etc. through the study of things like cognates, shared myths between cultures, language families, and tracking differences in word usage and dialects over a long period of time."

    Summary

    The Dresden Files/ Critical Role crossover no one asked for. Also I somehow managed to turn this into Percy angst halfway through, because I'm predictable.

    "I first heard about them on the Paranet-- a group of seven or eight kids calling themselves Vox Machina. The only reason I even got that much was Murph. Bob hadn’t heard anything, and Elaine only had rumors at first, nothing more than I could find. Apparently a lot of their work was on the internet, thanks to a few members in their little group with small enough gifts to be able to handle technology. Luckily, Murphy keeps an ear to the ground for me, especially with anything that might come up as warden business. After all, the best way to avoid having to see another kid killed is to find them before they do anything stupid..."

    Summary

    She does all she can to stop herself from laughing when the conversation begins - and also smacks Leo later when he almost chokes on his own laughter at the thought of Annabeth "I have stabbed a being of every species I have ever encountered" Chase being a babysitter.

    But, by the end of the conversation, she doesn’t really see any reason at all why she shouldn’t try for the job. Annabeth isn’t blind - she can clearly see by the state of Pepper’s attire that she’s well off, so the pay would be good, and it’s not like being a babysitter is any harder than anything else she's done in her roughly two decades of living and breathing.

    Plus, if she’s being honest, she’s not exactly in a position to pick and choose with jobs.

     

    Annabeth Chase is halfway through her Bachelor's at Columbia, smack in the middle of post-Blip NYC and five years younger than she should be. The only thing a second part-time job can hurt is her sleep-schedule and she never had one of those to begin with. Babysitting for a family swimming with superheroes is mostly a piece of cake, but pardon her if it didn't occur to her that introducing the Potts-Stark family to the mess that is her life could present an opportunity for disaster.

    Summary

    As usual, Merlin has utterly failed in keeping a low profile by inadvertently getting himself dragged into a mess of a situation that appears to have something to do with a seemingly unkillable snake man, a toad woman, an order of phoenixes, and a boy named Harry Potter who, he quickly finds, is equally bemused by his current predicament. When he discovers how lost the boy is, he resolves to help him and his friends get rid of this dark lord--as well as their malignant (and worse, ineffectual) new teacher.
