I was twenty years old when I moved out of my mother’s home. My best friend and I got an apartment in an old apartment building. We shared a one bedroom flat with wood floors and 12 foot ceilings. The landlord let us paint the inside whatever color we wanted. We were two very excited witches. I brought my familiar. A funny gray cat named Yoda obsessed with stealing jewelry. The first thing we brought to the apartment was a huge, healthy plant. We set it in one of the giant windows. Our first night we performed a house blessing spell. We banged pot and pans and shouted and giggled our instructions. It worked beautifully. Our neighbor recognized us as witches immediately and and welcomed us. We got a fish. My familiar ate it. That was the only bad thing that ever happened there. On Christmas we celebrated Yule and gave each other witchy gifts, decorating our Yule tree with stars and moons. Sundays we would sleep in and stretch out in sun beams that streamed in through the giant windows. It was our haven for a coven of two. We were blissfully happy there.
Is haven that kid!fic? Can you tell us more about it :)))
Yes, Haven is the kid!fic that I’m writing with @reserve! Here is some stuff about it:
Set about ~5 years following the events of TFA
Hux is emperor of the Outer Rim Empire (O.R.E.)
Ren is his Lord Protector (classic), and also he is writing a history of Vader/the Empire (say huh?)
Hux and Ren had some weird sexy stuff together around the time that they were taking down Snoke (spoilers!), but it didn’t go so good because they’re awful children, and now they don’t talk about it and mostly walk around pretending like they don’t have deeply fucked up feelings for each other because they have an empire to build, okay
“Haven” is the name of Hux’s central command and the seat of his power. It’s a modular free-floating city built on the back of the Finalizer, so that new districts can be constructed easily as the number of citizens increases, while also protecting itself against attack through dispersal and also not being a fucking planet (Hux knows about blowing up planets—sitting ducks, amirite)
Culture Note! Phasma died during the assault on Snoke, but her armor is installed like a shrine at the entrance to the military barracks—while religion is obviously banned in the O.R.E., her memory has taken on a saint-like quality, and most Haven residents refer to her the “Silver Martyr.”
the actual story opens as Ren is sent off-Haven to quell a new bout of resurgent resistance in one of the less-friendly quadrants of Hux’s new empire, a group of terrorists known as the “Greenhands.” The rumor is that they’re funded by the New Republic, despite the tentative truce obtained when Hux and Ren took control of the FO, but no one’s been able to prove it yet.
Hux, meanwhile, has his hands full with getting the last few planets/quadrants to sign onto the imperial constitution (what, like he wouldn’t have one?), so it’s not particularly welcome when Ren returns to Haven and his Emperor with a report that there were no signs of the Greenhands, and also with a strange, feral-looking child in tow…
