Mirrorbright, shines the moon, its glow as soft as an ember
When the moon is mirrorbright, take this time to remember
Those you have loved but are gone
Those who kept you so safe and warm
The mirrorbright moon lets you see
Those who have ceased to be
Mirrorbright shines the moon, as fires die to their embers
Those you loved are with you still—The moon will help you remember

LET ME CRY ABOUT ALL OF THIS.  GOD, OBI-WAN’S LIFE IS THE SADDEST EVER.

- Revenge of the Sith has just happened
- He’s taking Anakin’s son to Tatooine to give him up
- Baby Luke just peed on him
- This is the last robe he’s likely to have for awhile
- And then he thinks about Anakin some more and how Anakin gave him a birthday robe one year

Just.  Let me lay here and cry about my Star Wars feelings.

Guys, remember how in the Kenobi novel, the INSTANT Obi-Wan gets to Tatooine he brings day-old Luke into a bar and immediately gets into a bar fight? And even people on Tatooine are like “what kind of a maniac brings a baby to a bar fight?”

If they ever revisit this part of the timeline I want this made fully canon. The idea that Obi-Wan Kenobi has come pretty much straight from the end of Revenge of the Sith – “you were the Chosen One!” and everything – to a bar in the middle of the desert, with Anakin’s newborn son, and then instantly gets into a bar fight is amazing. 

This would mean that as far as we know, the only two times Obi-Wan and Luke have been in a bar together, Obi-Wan kicked someone’s ass and was part of a ruckus. THIS IS HILARIOUS AND I WANT IT TO BE REAL.

Obi-Wan, struggling with whether or not loving someone means that he’ll pull them into dangerous situations that may get them killed, even though he has the best of intentions towards them, isn’t that what happened with Anakin? isn’t that what happened with Anakin to Padme? yet and ultimately deciding that he can’t just stop loving someone.  He can never give up his love for someone precious, it’s just not who Obi-Wan is.

And that Obi-Wan had loved Anakin “just as Anakin had loved Padme, the very person he loved most”.

Cas is twenty-six and has never been kissed. It’s never been a problem, but now his advisor is saying that his dissertation, a romance novel, is lacking a personal touch and won’t be liked by the board. With one day until it is due Cas is at wits end, but maybe his roommate, Dean, can give him a few pointers. 2.9k [AO3 Link]

“You love me?” Jo asked with wide, open eyes.

Anna nodded back timidly and tried to walk away, but Jo caught her arm before she could make her escape.

“How long? How long, Anna?” she demanded. “How long have you loved me?”

Anna may have been an angel, bright and powerful and able to smite Jo in an instant, but in that moment, the angel looked completely and utterly human. Her eyes were downcast and her lip was perched between her teeth. She looked terrified, which was beyond Jo. How could an angel of the Lord be terrified of a simple human like her?

“Ever since I pulled you from Hell,” she whispered. “When I touched your soul, it was the purest thing I’ve ever felt in my life. From that first caress of your being, I knew that I’d Fall for you, Jo. I just knew.”

“Anna…” Jo trailed off, because what the hell. How could an angel love her, a hunter? It didn’t make any sense, because angels hated hunters. The only reason Jo was topside was because she was a pawn in their games, and even though she thought Anna wasn’t like the others, she still had doubts at times. She thought that Anna was just putting up with her, that Jo’s love for the angel was unrequited.

“I should go,” Anna said as she turned on her heel. Her large, obsidian wings flew out, ready for flight.

Jo felt herself panic as Anna crouched down. She couldn’t let her angel leave, not after a confession like that one.

“No you don’t,” Jo said, reaching forward and turning Anna around. With a fire within her, Jo leaned in and

“Their lips…no. They touch one another with their mouths…no. They…uh…mack on one another for a long time…the end.” Cas pushed his laptop away and ran fingers through his hair, groaning. “This is impossible,” he muttered to himself, and brought his elbows up onto the table.

He’d rewritten the ending scene with Anna and Jo’s kiss a thousand times, but it never worked out. Professor Mills cited a lack of personal touch, and told him to base the kiss on his own experiences. “Add a little raunchiness, will ya?” she said to him with an upturned grin. He nodded and laughed along at the time, but now he was truly panicking. He was never going to finish his dissertation before tomorrow’s board presentation, and it would all be because he’s the only twenty-six year old on the planet who has never been kissed.

It wasn’t like he hadn’t tried before. Back in college, Cas was almost kissed a few times, the closest being when he was playing a drunken game of spin the bottle with his floormates. It landed on a girl named Meg, a feisty business major who was known for her escapades in the bedroom, but when she leaned in and tried to kiss him, he couldn’t do it. When Cas imagined his first kiss, it always was with someone he really cared about, not some girl from Edlund Hall that he barely knew.

“Yeah, wait until you find the perfect person to kiss. That’ll do you a lot of good,” Cas angrily muttered to himself as he pulled his computer back towards him. The cursor blinked back at him mockingly, and Cas carefully began typing.

“With a fire within her, Jo leaned in and grabbed Anna’s face-”

“No, no, no!” Cas cried out as he pounded on the keys. Even if he had no experience, why couldn’t he write this damn scene? Kissing was not rocket science, and he’s read enough romance novels in his life. Why can’t he just write a few lines and get it over with?

“Cas?”

He cringed when Dean’s voice hit his ears. The last thing he needed was his roommate seeing him all up in arms over this, especially since he was the one Cas had been trying to get the courage to kiss for years now. He quickly thought that if he wasn’t such a coward, then maybe he’d be able to not fail out of his dissertation.

“In my bedroom!” Cas called out, and began fruitlessly typing nonsense as Dean’s footsteps ricocheted off the hardwood floors, stopping when he reached Cas’s door.

“You okay?” Dean asked, and Cas turned around to see his friend leaning against the doorframe, lips turned up into a smirk as he toed the ground with his boot.

Perhaps it’s heightened by Cas’s troubles, but Dean looked even more handsome than usual. His jeans were rolled up at the bottom, revealing his ankles, and his white t-shirt was dirtied from his work shift at the garage. Combined with his playful gaze and his hands in his pockets, Cas felt himself blanching.

“Earth to Cas? You there, buddy?” Dean said as nodded in his direction.

Cas blinked owlishly a few times before going back to his laptop. “Yes, I’m sorry. I’m just trying to finish my dissertation.”

Dean walked over to his computer and peered over Cas’s shoulder. He could feel Dean’s breath on his neck, and it took everything in him to not turn his head and close the distance between them. It would be the perfect moment to get experience-

“Wow, this sucks,” Dean snorted, and alas, the moment was broken.

Cas glared up at Dean and pushed away from his desk. “You think it’s crappy? I’m presenting this to the board tomorrow,” Cas reminded him with emphasis. “And you decide to tell me now that it’s crappy?”

Dean held up his hands and backed away into the bed. He plopped down and replied, “Crappy isn’t the right word. It’s just…lacking. Jo grabbed Anna’s face and kissed her until they broke apart tells me nothing,” he said, quoting the last thing Cas wrote down. “I want to read about what the kiss felt like for Jo, you know?”

Cas took a deep breath and took a seat next to Dean. He folded his hands in his lap and glanced out the window, then asked the question that had been on his mind all day. “What does it feel like to be kissed, Dean?”

Okay but the passage from lone wolf about Obi Wan loving Luke? I AM DEAD. I WAS NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO READ THAT. MY HEART CAN'T TAKE IT. 😭😭😭excuse me while I lay down and cry about my Obi Wan feelings.

Oh my god it’s so sad.  This is Obi-Wan who is just worn down to the bone, so sick from the loss of everything that he loved, haunted by everything that just happened in ROTS.  He’s lost every single person he ever cared about, love has only ever brought him suffering.

And yet he looks at this tiny baby and thinks, “I should not love him.  It will only bring us both suffering.” and then he still can’t do it, still can’t turn away from loving him already.  Loving Anakin’s child, loving this innocent being in front of him.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will never not love, no matter what it costs him.

As the current head of the New York Institute,” Maryse said, with an attempt at firmness, “if there is illegal Downworlder activity happening, it should be reported to me.”

“I do not talk to Nephilim about Downworlder business,” Lily said severely.

The Lightwood parents stared at her, and then swung their heads in sync to stare at their son.

Lily waved a dismissive hand in their direction. “Except for Alec, he’s a special case. The rest of you Shadowhunters just come in, lay down your precious Law, and chop off people’s heads. We Downworlders can handle our business ourselves. You Nephilim can stick to chopping off demons’ heads and I will consult with you as soon as the next great evil occurs, instead of the next great annoyance, which will occur probably on Tuesday, and which I, Maia, and Alec will deal with. Thank you. Please stop interrupting me. Alec, can these people even be trusted?”

“They’re my parents,” said Alec.

ok ok so i’m gonna do an installment three of the skysolo college au that no one asked for
  • (first part here, second part here)
  • surprise it’s set in the future after luke’s graduated
  • so luke graduates early and leaves and doesn’t tell anyone (read: forgets to tell everyone) where he intends to go and what he intends to do
  • like he doesn’t even tell leia and he and leia are splitting a rent check and she’s doing a five years master’s program at her school
  • leia, understandably, is super pissed, because she could have been in nice housing on her own campus, she doesn’t have to be living in this shithole, luke, you fucker
  • so she gets this freshman to help her try and find him
  • poe dameron is a computer science major who lives in total awe/fear of leia organa, and he’s like !!!!!! holy shit she’s speaking to me
  • so he traces down some of luke’s paperwork except there’s like a fuckton of info missing and he had no idea how to get it
  • so he goes to talk to hux in admin but hux is an asshole and a bully who doesn’t do much work except for admiring phasma who is the real ruler of the place
  • finn is pretty smart but he likes to play games in his spare time so phasma usually takes his mouse
  • but finn likes the look of poe and goes hunting down the information he needs and gets it and puts it on a flashdrive but never gets to give it to poe
  • anyway poe accidentally leaves his jacket so finn tries to run after him to return it but loses his job since he’s not allowed to leave the building
  • and poe’s gone anyway, he’s headed home for the long weekend
  • so finn is wandering around and bumps into rey who is like, a scary good pole vaulter and she’s got poe’s dog! she’s petsitting bb-8 (spelled on her collar as “beebeeate”) since she has no family to go home to
  • so finn and rey bond and go exploring campus together (bb freshmen!) and they bump into han who has a Reputation on campus but also hasn’t been seen since luke graduated
  • and when finn says “he left his jacket and he also was asking about luke skywalker” han just kind of freezes
  • “why does poe fucking dameron– LEIA”
  • and they all tromp over to senior apartments together
  • and there’s poe! and he goes “hey that’s my jacket!” and finn goes !!!!! “sorry it was cold out”
  • “nah keep it it fits you better anyway”
  • finn blushes and leia says “han didn’t you once say that to–” “WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THAT”
  • so they’ve found out where luke is– part time at grad school and working at tesla to pay off his debt– and leia calls him and when she gets on the phone she immediately starts chewing him out
  • meanwhile han cooks dinner and chewie comes over and immediately takes a shine to rey but she’s listening to poe and finn swap horror stories of hux and phasma with great interest and beebee keeps yapping around their legs
  • and no one realizes that leia’s moved into another room and put the phone on speaker so she can pace holes into the carpet in frustration at her twin until suddenly, during a lull in the conversation, they hear
  • “you wanna know why i didn’t tell you why i’d left? because i didn’t want han to know. i’m trying to get over him, okay, and i didn’t want him to come after me and ask me to come back or whatever. i couldn’t face it. okay? are you happy now?”
  • and luke hangs up
  • and han drops a pot
  • and no one says anything for a really long time
