I have to step out for a few hours, but I have the distinct suspicion that I might be in the mood for some worldbuilding on my established ‘verses (including, but not limited to, my various Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them and Star Wars ‘verses).

Unfortunately, I’m in one of those inspiration nadirs where I can’t seem to start worldbuilding - would anyone be interested in sending me some prompts? (again, in my established ‘verses). I’ll get started on them after I get back.

Please respond via ask.

Flickering flame worn by sorrow - the dark ever curls at your side
Whispering with power this does not have to happen again- you can
Stop the death and pain; you can be anything - just let yourself feel
Give in to the love that is at the core of your being, jump and be caught
In the arms of the Dark, and change the world (the Litany will cease
And you can rest without reciting even more names each night before bed)
From the time he was thirteen to thirty loss dogged his steps
The star-flame of Force within him burned bright, he chose to step back
Until this one thing too many, chased by the very men he fought to save
Sent by his brother to bring him down - he kills without joy, the mourning
Song in his heart burns, and when his Commander is dead by their hands
(A choice in the end was all the mercy left for the two of them)
He is broken, and the Dark wraps around the shattered remains to reforge
A phoenix with golden eyes - there’s a tremble through the Force
It is the planet of lava and flame - where blood red blade clashes with white
Where the Force’s favourite sons battle once more; the soldiers dare not
Interfere - the ones that tried were lost in that moment - without a gesture
Without a word and not even the light of young lives can reach the void
Of a man broken past all hope - and the Empire begins to crumble though
Vader is alive (he loved him, he would always love him too much)
The seeds of destruction are sown by the one who cared until he broke

…I’m sorry, this is an interesting prompt that deserves all due consideration, but my immediate reaction was the mental image of Anakin shouting at the High Council that he was going off to form his own Jedi Order! One with blackjack! And significantly more emphasis on emotions!


In all seriousness, I think they would Not Take It Well. Marriage, in and of itself, is - perhaps not quite the dealbreaker that Anakin sees it as; there have been Jedi who wed before (Coreillian Jedi were known for their marriages and their families) and a few members of the Coruscant Jedi had special dispensation to take a spouse.

The revelation that Anakin was the son of a Sith Lord - I don’t see them taking that well. The Jedi are not idiotic enough to blame the child for the sins of the parent; canonically, Obi-Wan and Anakin were of Dooku’s Lineage, but they never faced any kind of retaliation for their connection to the man. In much the same light, Anakin would not officially be censured due to his descent from Darth Moeder - officially. I think the revelation might seriously shake any kind of trust the Jedi Council had in him; they’d probably keep him under close scrutiny, and there would be increased pressure to ‘prove himself’ or ‘redeem himself from the sins of his parentage’. And they’d also demand that Anakin cut off any and all contact he had with his motion. Immediately.

(Like fuck, Anakin thinks to himself as he nods seriously at the High Jedi Council).

No, it would be the knowledge that Anakin got married to a Sith Lord that would be the real dealbreaker. Because marriage - it’s a commitment. It’s a promise. It’s a choice - Anakin Skywalker chose to bind himself to Darth Vex, permanently and irreversibly. He chose the Sith over the Jedi, he chose the Dark over the Light, he chose Attachment and Passion over Serenity. They’d want to arrest him, at the very least, with an eye on ‘de-brainwashing’ him - at the worst, he’d be booted out of the order and slammed with a Treason charge.

…which wouldn’t actually work very well, considering that his spouse employs some truly nasty lawyers.

Anakin would probably move to the Black Library, and - well. Darth Vex has, on occasion, mentioned re-opening the Sith Academy. It wouldn’t be any trouble at all for him to help his husband open up a New Jedi Academy.

(Anakin’s going full Schism, see if he isn’t!)

Headcanon: Real!Percival Graves took lessons from the Sam Vimes School of Policing.

…I now can’t stop imagining Graves displaying the classic Sam Vimes reaction whenever someone mentions ‘the divine right of kings’.

For your consideration: Picquery getting Graves to do things simply by telling him to stay out of it while counting on his immediate ‘the hell I will’ reaction.

Percival Graves. In the Congress Chamber. With the axe.

Percival Graves reading ‘Where’s My Cow?’ to the occamys every night at 6 o’clock. Percival Graves struggling with the Summoning Dark. Percival Graves defeating the Summoning Dark by being aggressively himself.

Percival Graves holding up his right hand and gravely intoning “I comma square bracket recruit’s name square bracket comma do solemnly swear by square bracket recruit’s deity of choice square bracket to uphold the Laws and Ordinances of the city of New York -”

The threat of Percival Graves going spare hanging over every auror who messed up. ‘Graves will go spare’ is the ultimate deterrent whispered to the foolish who’re about to do something stupid.

Percival Graves wearing his shoes down until they’re about to fall off, because it lets him feel the city streets through his boots.

Percival Graves sitting on the steps of the Woolworth building with a cup of hot chocolate.

Percival Graves and Gondulphus ‘Old Stoneface’ Graves.

Percival Graves falling for Newt Scamander, the man who’s far too attached to dragons and literally spends all his time caring for his creatures.

Percival Graves struggling through the need to make all the shit he sees in his work easier to bear through alcohol. Percival Graves keeping a bottle of firewhiskey in his desk drawer just to prove that he can, never touching it.

Percival Graves and the Beast.

Percival Graves stopping a war by arresting both sides.

Percival Graves whispering “You’re nicked, chum!” as he tackles the serial killer who killed two of his aurors.

Percival Graves insisting on going after an unpredictable serial killing dark wizard himself, having given strict instructions to his aurors to keep out of it because they’ll try to do it by the book and it’s going to get them killed.

Percival Graves, due to an accident with a time-turner, being his own mentor.

Percival Graves being slightly horrified by just how naive his younger self was. Jesus Christ, kid, stop expecting the best of people (even if you’ll always defend them) and definitely stop blindly taking orders from those crooked aurors you had to call boss.

Percival Graves thinking longingly of Picquery‘s term in office, carefully keeping his face straight as he hears his younger self talking enthusiastically on how the latest Presidential candidate is definitely For the People, and how thing will be so much better when the current President is gone.

Is this really me? Graves wonders. Did I really have the political awareness of a head louse? And the self-preservation instincts of a lemming?

Percival Graves close to losing all hope stuck in the past, when his pocket watch - the one that Newt gave him after the Niffler refused to return Graves’ old one - is returned. He draws his fingers over the engraved initials, thinks of the future waiting for him and soldiers on.

Percival Graves, ordered the rioting population to take down that fucking barricade! And re-build it at the end of the street! And build another one at that corner there! Move it, people, they don’t have much time!

(On an aside, I considered Percival Graves arresting a dragon, but then realized that Newt would pout at him. And give him the wet, teary eyes, and - well, Graves would be very distracted.)
