    Summary

    The one where Vader turned double agent for the Rebellion about three years after ROTS, and Leia is now his primary contact with the Rebellion.

    This is a collection of oneshots that all fit into the same universe, but posted in no particular order. Updated when the muse strikes me.

    Alternate summary, according to TV Tropes: A man attempts to escape slavery by turning into one of his culture heroes, teaching his daughter how to do magic, killing people, and flower arranging.

    “Do you know why Ekkreth the Sky-walker wears so many shapes?” she asked.

    He said nothing.

    “Quiet one, aren’t you?” she cackled, squeezing his hand so tightly he thought it would have hurt, had it still been flesh.

    “Ekkreth has as many shapes as they have stories,” the old woman said. “With every new story, Ekkreth makes themself anew, and that is why Depur can never hold them.” She smiled. “And that is why we say that these stories can save your life.”

    It was the proper ending to any telling. Vader knew that. His mother had always said it with a sense of solemn ritual. I tell you this story to save your life. And he had always replied, “I’ll remember, Mom.”

    “I remember,” he said now, and the memory burned in him.

    “Good.” The old woman patted his hand once and released him. “Then you know what you need to do, I expect.”

    He did.

    Summary

    When Luke Skywalker—operating under the name of Luke Lars—accepts a job offer from none other than Darth Vader to become the next Head Engineer aboard his flagship, The Executor, a.k.a. The Lady, he hardly expected his life to take as much of a turn as it did.

    Learning how to navigate his way through the microcosm of culture that is the Lady, Luke finds that life is far from quiet in his new home. Friendships and rivalries are made, inventions and politics throw everything into disarray, and throughout it all, Luke and Vader slowly find themselves drawn closer to each other, much to the relief and awe of many of the Lady's crewmembers.

    Follow our favorite engineer from the twin suns as he goes from strangers, to friends, to adoptive family with his mysterious new mentor, and changes the face of the galaxy forever in the process. There are mysteries about the past to be unraveled, inventions to be made, wars to be fought, and family bonds to be forged in the fires of revolution and rebellion.

    They say that Darth Vader has no heart, that the Empire and its Emperor are eternal, that the Jedi are dead and gone, and that nothing will ever change.

    "They" have obviously never met Luke Skywalker before.

    ‘Perhaps,’ he agreed. ‘But it is a conviction nonetheless. One I will not be easily swayed from.’

    ‘Hm,’ the emperor muttered, still tapping his cane in a rhythm that was pounding against Luke’s storm. ‘That remains to be seen. I think you will find, my boy, that the galaxy is far less forgiving of foolishness than the forgotten dustbowl you grew up in. It won’t care for your noble ideals or hopeful wishes.’

    Luke very nearly scoffed at that assertion. ‘Of course it won’t,’ he agreed without hesitation. ‘The galaxy won’t care for any plight any more than the Desert would. It’s cold, unforgiving, and uncaring. Why would I think otherwise?’

    ‘Your convictions,’ the emperor pointed out with a tone that… Luke didn’t exactly know what to make of, but that set him on edge like nothing else.

    ‘My convictions hardly have anything to do with the nature of the galaxy, your majesty,’ he retorted coldly. ‘It’s neither kind, nor compassionate, nor empathetic.’ He crossed his arms. ‘But I can be. And so that’s what I choose. If the world, the galaxy, and the entire universe won’t care, then I will. Regardless of how difficult and painful it can be.’

    Then, there was no more time. Chat slammed his eyes shut against the pink light reflecting against the ground behind her.

    There was a girl in his arms. A girl who both was Ladybug and wasn’t. A girl who ate and slept and laughed and dreamed in spaces he couldn’t touch. A girl who wore soft, civilian clothing and who smelled like a bakery’s worth of sweets, of flowery perfume and tears.

    There was a girl in his arms who meant the world to him, who meant the stars and the moon and galaxies upon galaxies to him.

    There was a girl in his arms that he didn't know, but there was also a girl that he did know. There was a girl in his arms that he desperately wanted to know.

    There was a girl in his arms who didn't want him to know her.

    He kept his eyes shut.
