    In which Obi-Wan and Anakin's close proximity to their "grandfather" may cause problems for everyone involved, but it solves even more of them. I'm delighted the author has cross-posted this lineage bonding fic to AO3!



    Kenobi looked to the staff, his jaw tight. "You must forgive my brother," he said after a false start. "Slavery is a sore subject with him."

    Tori frowned. "Why?"

    Kenobi looked away. "You'll have to forgive me," he said slowly, "but that is a topic best kept private."

    The entire staff nodded. "Of course, young master," Tori said. "We hope you'll come to trust us in time."

    It was brilliant, in some ways. Kenobi had not only subverted the explosion known as his Padawan, but he also had invoked the traditions of Zeltrax to deflect further questioning - and done it with a humility and bearing that had earned the understanding of the staff. By setting a boundary of "private" Kenobi had dispensed of the one of the boundaries of "foreigner," and the gesture was an immense relief to the members of Dooku's employ. The count allowed himself to smile slightly, as he drank his tea. Kenobi was proving to be an interesting puzzle, and Dooku decided he was curious enough to try and solve it.

    Lovely period details and character work. I especially appreciate the complexity the author grants the human antagonists of this story, and the very real costs the wars exact on our protagonists and Westeros as a whole. Seeing as I've loved this fic for years, I'm not sure how I hadn't bookmarked it before now.



    “Look away, my lady.”

    “Is this the end then?” she asks, her voice thinned by nerves.

    He looks down into her blue eyes, which blink as if she stares into the summer sun.

    “Yes. Turn away your gaze.”

    “No. I can’t.”

    He rests his hand on her shoulder, as he urges, “No one will think less of you.”

    She turns her attention back to the field, however. “How could I? Jon can’t look away.”

    Outside POV, excellent original characters, found family, and theological and Talmudic discussion/debate. Wonderfully healing.

    Bittersweet and beautifully characterized.


    And yet something compels her to rise to her feet, to call out and stop Brienne before she leaves the room. “Lady Brienne?” What is the harm, really, in knowing? It can hardly hurt her now. “Boy or girl?”

    A look of surprise crosses the knight’s face. It is followed by a slow smile. Her teeth are crooked and broken, and yet somehow the smile improves her. “A girl, Lady Cersei.”

    Summary

    Well, it had to catch up with her sometime. When Kel innocently displays a questionable talent for tying cherry stems in a knot with her tongue, vulgar allusions abound. Of course, she has her champions.

    Excellent character voices. Funny and strangely sweet.


    "Hollyrose!" Neal cried, outraged, in response to both Kel's dazed expression and Seaver's obvious shock. "Why don't you stop acting like despotic tavern scum and close your mouth about all this?"

    "This isn't really going as I planned," Kel said to no one.

    They ignored her.
