imperial alliance


The Empire strikes back by being a bastard. Their target is the flippin shield generator, but they take some time out of their day to gun down the people on foot running away from our their giant machines of death.

Shuttle Tydirium by Amaru Zeas

I already love the design of the Imperial Shuttles, but the idea that Tydirium was re-branded after the battle of Endor, is just supremely badass!!!

RIP Carrie Fisher. You were an awesome woman who fought the stigma surrounding mental illness, a hero to so many of us at an early age. A real-life Rebel Alliance is needed now to combat capitalism and fascism, and I know I’m not alone in saying that Star Wars – particularly Carrie’s Leia – played a small part in inspiring me to revolutionary ideals. May the Force be with you, Carrie, and may a Rebel Alliance form in the years to come.

Well hi there, and thank you for the compliment. I’m a little less calm than I look, honestly, but at least with questions on tumblr I can take my time to answer them. It definitely helps me get my thoughts together.

And I do have a very long answer for you, and it comes in several parts. Bear with me.

Selvaria in Junketsu

Commissioned by me, drawn by @mikazuki35. Please visit his page, his art is wonderful.

Years before the second Europan war begun, scientists from The Autocratic East Europan Imperial Alliance discovered an ancient power from the far east of the world. A divine powerful cloth composed by “Life Fibers” into its composition, and its named by the former local keepers as “Junketsu” (”Castity”). With their successful adquisition of the ancient cloth and their further investigations about its hidden power, the one who offered to test their might in the battlefield was the Maximilian’s second in command Selvaria Bles. With a blood link with the ancient garment, along with her Valkyrur powers, the ideal test field for prove Junketsu and her newly enhanced abilities is in Barious, where the next Gallian resistance gonna encounter. 
Soon the time will come when the legend of the Azure Witch rises again with an unexpected twist, a fascinating and sculptural beauty that holds into itself an nightmarish power. The revealing nature of the divine garment is nothing more than a facade to what really is capable to do the most powerful woman of the empire.

Imperial problem child verse: With Luke in and out of the Executor periodically, does Ahsoka ever cross paths with her old teacher in their mutual attempts to protect the Skybabies? How do those meetings go?

The first meeting probably went really really badly. He had thought (hoped) she was dead, so he wouldn’t have to go after her again, she’s got a million and one Rebel secrets to keep and doesn’t need even the slightest risk of someone gaining access to that information in her brain, and both of them have some scores left unsettled.

Vader goes back to his ship with one working arm and his cape is on fire. Ahsoka goes back to her ship with serious burns and a broken foot. Neither will admit that they’re secretly glad the other escaped.

The second time they meet, they’re literally both in the middle of trying to find Luke and a small ground assault team in the middle of a firefight (think the Jedha city ambush in Rogue One)
“I have no time for you, Tano,” Vader snaps, “I have come for my son.”
“Join the club!” Ahsoka retorts, “If you can find him! He’s your recklessness and his mom’s escape-artist tendencies in one terrible package!”

They tend to just sort of acknowledge each other’s presence and leave in subsequent encounters, unless they’ve both showed up to help Luke.

Except for once. One time they both turned up in a Zygerrian slaver fortress in the dead of night and wreaked such devastation that there was hardly anything left by dawn. Ahsoka had her lightsabers, and Vader muted his breathing and borrowed Obi-wan’s old saber, and both kept to the shadows. They left two survivors to spread a tale of “The Jedi’s Revenge”.
Nobody told Luke or the Alliance.

Friday Fic Recs: There’s an AU of that? List

Dynasty by Valerie Vancollie and Rebecca Thomson (300k, complete)

Hit in the leg by a stormtrooper’s blaster bolt, Luke falls in the Death Star hanger bay and is unable to escape on the Falcon along with Han and Leia. During the subsequent interrogation, his true heritage is revealed and Vader instantly takes him to Coruscant, determined to reclaim the son the Jedi stole from him. But the glory of the Imperial capital belies its true nature, where politics and power are everything and anything is fair game in the never ending game to reach the top. Not lying, not betrayal, assassination, sabotage, blackmail, nor seduction.

As he commences his Sith training, Luke must also learn the rules and etiquette of the Imperial Court if he is to survive as most of his enemies fight their battles with words and political maneuverings rather than military force. Yet, even as he struggles to gain his place within the Empire, Luke learns that his best friend has joined the Alliance…

Imperial Luke is a rare thing. This is a fic I had never thought of existing before I read this but after I found it there was no going back. This fic is executed so well I have read this fic so many times because it is so interesting. I love political intrigue, personally. It is so fascinating to read for me. If that’s not your thing, this might not be for you. 

Family Principals by @themostawesomeroxburryblack (54k words, complete) 

Luke didn’t want to meet the dark side users who owned the swamp he crashed into. The Addams are happy to host the (unbeknownst to Luke) son of their friend Darth Vader until he arrives to collect his rebellious son.

Luke meets the Addams family and they really like him. Luke is very confused at this situation he finds himself in. It is really great if you like the Addams family or Luke & Vader relationships, this is a fic you will adore. 

Fives Saves the Galaxy by ilyena_sylph, and Merfilly (25k words, complete)

Fives is on mission, right behind his General, when the Force decides he’ll do for it’s little trick. Poor vod finds himself out of time, with a nightmare having happened to everyone he knew.

Fives travel to the future, meets his general’s son and saves everyone. I love time travel fics and Fives is one of my favorites from TCW. This is a really great version of the time travel to save everyone trope. 

Plot Twist by @anakinskydala (ObiAniDala, 10k words, complete)

The supposed love triangle between Mr. Skywalker, Ms. Amidala, and Mr. Kenobi is all their students (and even their fellow teachers) can talk about. The only thing is, no one at Coruscant High School can figure out exactly which of them are together.

All the fluff and giggles found here! Featuring Twitter Wars, Bets, and trolling trio. I cannot stop laughing when I read this fic. It is everything you need in your life when you need nothing to hurt. *SIDE EYES PTCANNON*. 

The Prince and the Farmboy by QuinnthePrincess (LukeHan, 99k words, wip)

When Luke’s widowed mother marries her old friend Rush Clovis and brings him and his children to live at her estate, Luke thinks his wish for a family has finally come true. Unfortunately things don’t turn out quite the way he had expected; now everyday is a struggle just to survive his awful step family. But when a daring mission to rescue his droid leads to a chance encounter with the handsome prince of another planet, Luke’s life takes a turn for the complicated. All he has to do now is keep his newly formed relationship a secret from his step family, while keeping his true identity hidden from a rather unusually roguish prince.

This amazing fic is an Ever After AU, which is an 80s remake of cinderella that is not for kids. It is one of my all-time favorite movies. I did not know I needed this until I found it and now I regularly scream at the author when they update. You don’t really need to know about Ever After in order to enjoy this butttttt it was like amazing knowing what the reference material was. I adore fic to death like I sometime squee when I get an update.

Reliance by @zany-the-nerd  (46k words, complete - sequel wip)

What started out as simply answering a distress signal quickly spirals into something much greater for Luke Skywalker. When hit with a strange energy wave, Luke finds himself in the body of his eight year old self stuck with Darth Vader, who has also had a bit of de-aging himself. Now Luke and Vader must work together to find out who is responsible while trying to remain low key. (Shameless father/son relationship)

I love fics the focus on Luke and Vader’s relationship (Yes that will also be a FFR theme). But this one deserves to be in the That’s an AU theme as well. 8-year-old Luke stuck working together with Darth Dad. Luke is so cute and gets into just as much trouble as his adult self. Darth Dad W O R R I E S and cannot handle the rebellion and trouble of tiny Luke. Totally worth a read.

Tatooinian Sunset by Deja Know I Been Lookin For Vu (64k words, complete-sequel complete)

Faced with an agonizing choice, the Jedi Kenobi decides to protect baby Leia and leave baby Luke to be raised by Tusken Raiders…The lives of the twins are thus forever changed.

Luke is raised by the Tuskans but is found by Vader. This is another one that complete surprised me but I was so glad I had found it. I love the way the Tuskan culture is written and the ensuing culture differences/clashes the occur. It is nothing else I’ve read in the Fandom. 

You Shall Become (Me) by @letslipthehounds  (AniDala, 24k words, complete)

The Guardian of the Sith Temple doesn’t particularly care for the new breed of Sith, for all that they’ve been around for 1,000 years. But they’re the only Sith the Guardian knows about. Until one day…

Alternately, “How to accidentally join the Sith without really trying.”

The alternate summary is very accurate and this fic is amazing. It features an old sith lord that is very much an old many screaming “get off my lawn” to Dooku. It is really hilarious but also really well written. I love the idea of someone accidentally becoming a sith it just so ridiculous but that is something that would totally happen in star wars lets be real.

Dispatches from the Days In-Between

An “Imperial Problem Child” story

The broadcasts, surprisingly, had been Madine’s idea in the end.

The council had been small, only for those with high enough clearance, and normally Skywalker wouldn’t have been included, but recent galactic events had been…odd, to say the least. The question of the hour was how to proceed with Operation Yellow Moon when the Rebellion was under increased scrutiny. (The reporters that showed up on inhabited worlds to mob Skywalker didn’t help either. It was still manageable at this point, as not everyone in the whole galaxy knew what the poor kid looked like, but Madine had his suspicions that one day it might get to the point where the boy started contemplating wearing a mask like his infamous sire.)

And there was another issue. Having Luke along on operations where Vader was likely to be present put the entire mission in jeopardy. Not because they were afraid Luke would betray them. He’d already managed to “steal” several Imperials for the Alliance, to Vader’s great annoyance, and no one in High Command doubted his commitment anymore. (though Madine couldn’t speak for the average Rebel-on-the-street, of course). The problem was that Vader would simply “sense” his son somehow and know right where they were.
Hence the discussion of what to do with Luke during the operation.
