    Summary

    Wei Wuxian: rogue inventor, machine tinkerer, pilot, war hero, quite good-looking if he says so himself (and he does) wakes up after thirteen years of cryosleep.

    This is awkward for many reasons: he thought he was dead; the whole world (actually, several worlds) also thought he was dead; his brother (who killed him) thinks he's dead and wants him to stay that way; Lan Zhan... does what Lan Zhan does, which Wei Wuxian couldn't explain thirteen years ago, let alone now.

    Machines have run amok, planetary tensions are high, some people thought to be dead are not, some people that are alive really need to die like right now, it's all a mess, and someone's developed a version of alcohol which doesn't get you drunk.

    Sometimes science really does go too far.

    Summary

    Obi-Wan had been pointedly ignoring him from the Healers’ Halls all the way to Qui-Gon’s old quarters, and Qui-Gon’s serenity was fraying badly. His former Padawan had been like this—brittle, tight-coiled, scorched-metal heat—for the last twenty minutes. Qui-Gon had elected not to mention it, to wait until Obi-Wan explained himself. He’d also felt, absurdly, like he had to fill the air with reassurances that he was fine, really, the Healers said he would recover, and have done with.

    “I’m listening to you, I’m just not paying attention,” Obi-Wan had snapped at him, barely three steps out of the Healers’ wing.

    Summary

    For the first sentence meme "He had promised it would never happen again, but who could expect such a thing to happen twice?"

    The Elliots of Kellynch Hall also own the seventh alethiometer ever created-- a compass-like object that always tells the truth of whatever question you ask it. When Napoleon forms an alliance with the witches of the north and escapes from exile a second time, the Magisterium rushes to ask Sir Walter to use this truth-telling symbolic compass. There's only one problem: he doesn't know how to read it. Only Anne does.

    His Dark Materials/ Daemons AU. I just wanted everyone to have a cute animal buddy. Should make sense without knowing more about HDM.
