    Summary

    “I found a sith,” Qui-Gon says over the crackle of the vessel's comms.
    There is silence.
    “A sith?” Plo repeats.
    “Correct.”
    “What kind of sith?”
    Qui-Gon pauses again; this time, Plo can imagine him looking thoughtfully over his broad shoulder.
    “A little one,” he finally answers.

    (AU where Qui-Gon brings both Obi-Wan and a young Maul back with him from Bandomeer, and Master Plo Koon trips and falls into taking on an unexpected apprentice.)

    Summary

    High Sage Kenji blesses Fire Prince Zuko with the resilience of the reed, who bends in the wind and never breaks. When he is done, Fire Prince Ozai narrows his eyes, seemingly displeased by this blessing. But Kenji does not speak for himself; he is only a vessel. 

     

    -

    The newly-crowned Fire Lord Ozai offers his firstborn son to service in the temple.

    This turns out to be a catastrophic mistake.
