    Summary

    "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine."

    ****


    “70 …” 68 said slowly, taken off-guard. 70 wasn’t a brother normally inclined towards ghost-tales. “Ben isn’t real. He’s just a baby story--something the tubies like to pretend is real.”

    70 shook his head, his face set in stubborn lines. “He might not be. No, listen--” he gave 74 a glare when it looked like his brother wanted to interrupt again. “I’ve heard the stories, and they’re always the same. The tubies all know what he looks like. They all know he’s a jetii, before anyone ever told them what a jetii was. You know how the longnecks keep batches of tubies separate. There’s no way any of us, or any of the older vod, could have told them about him. But it doesn’t matter. All the batches know about Ben.”

    Summary

    It had seemed the best thing to do, when faced with a recently freed child who cries out for his mother in his sleep. Naboo is so close to Tatooine. It's barely out of their way at all. Two days added to their trip back to Coruscant, maximum. If they leave the Nabooian celebration early the Jedi Council won't even notice.

    Of course, with Obi-Wan's luck, everything takes a turn for the worse. Anakin's dreams about his mother prove prophetic. Sith burn half of Mos Espa and their ship with it; chase them into the desert, into increasingly dire straits.

    He starts dreaming of his soulmate again, too, as though he needs the extra complication.

    Summary

    It's not all bad, being friends with an Avenger. Thor has some great stories, Asgardian Mead, and is handy for resetting dislocated joints. Also, Thor's friends think Daredevil has the best eyesight in New York, and Matt certainly isn't going to tell them otherwise.

    Summary

    Elia looked at her incredulously. “And you expect me to marry him and straighten this all out? Why would he listen to a thing I have to say?”

    “He won’t. Your job is to make him listen, Elia. And of all the eligible maidens who will be put forth to him as potential second wives, you are cunning enough to do it.”

    “A viper may strike at a lion and poison it,” Elia reasoned darkly, “But a poisoned lion can still kill the viper with a single swipe of his paw.”

    “There’s my wise girl,” Mother smiled. “But perhaps the viper will not have to strike at the lion at all.”

    (Elia Martell becomes the Lady of Casterly Rock due to her mother's machinations. Robarra Baratheon becomes a princess due to a demand for a bride of Targaryen blood. The seeds of rebellion are planted all the same.)
