That’s an interesting idea! Maybe It would try and turn the Losers against the other people of the town (they are, after all, not humans, it should really be no concern of theirs what It eats, Stan needs to drink blood after all, in some literature, werewolves have to eat human flesh…). 

It gets quickly shot down by the Losers, though, because It ate Georgie, who was a inhuman being like them. (Maybe Bill and George were some kind of fae mix?)

Every time something in this ‘verse crosses my dash I have to forcibly reformat my brain, because the Losers to me are: Clay, Roque, Pooch, Cougar, and Jensen.

I have to admit that I don’t know who they are! Care to enlighten me? I’m always interested in finding out about other fandoms!

It’s a comic-book-turned-into-a-movie named “The Losers” - which is basically a much more gritty and gory version of ‘The A-Team’.

True. It’s their own little compound which most of the residents of Derry kind of just tilt their heads at and then shrug. To each their own, it’s none of their business. 

This also insures in Creature Bill verse that when It does start to rear Its ugly head again, Bill is surrounded by six of the people most dedicated to protecting him from Its influence.

:D Wait until I finish my second re-read of It. I plan to make this full length, but I thought I’d release a snippet in the meantime. 

I look forward to it! Sorry about the radio silence; the local library didn’t have a copy of IT, so I have to wait for it to come in from another branch (it’s taking an incredibly long time; no idea why) but today I sat down in a local bookstore and read my way through part of it! Again. So I suppose I feel I have a better feel for it now!

…SO glad the transformation was reversible…

That sucks that the library is taking so long to get the copy in. Hope it hurries up!

And of course the transformation is reversible. I may be mean, but I’m not that mean. If It had had Bill for a little longer, though….

Let’s just say that Bill was damn lucky that the others found him when they did. Otherwise, not even the Other could have fixed him.

I have absolutely no idea why it’s taking so long. It just - is? It SAID 1-2 weeks for the book to be available; I suppose in the meantime I can just wait. …and watch some more of those youtube clips.

Under cut for potential spoilers:

Is the Other a thing in the movie? I know that it’s the Turtle in the book; I have absolutely no idea how that’s handled in the current film adaptation…

Morag laughs.

Laughs in Palpatine’s increasingly enraged face. Laughs until her sides hurt and she’s nearly bent double with the force of the hilarity wracking her frame. Laughs until she’s sobbing for breath - because that is simply one of the most ridiculous things she’s ever heard.

Laughs, because she knows that it wouldn’t have made one fucking bit of difference if she’d kept Obi-Wan instead of sending him to the Temple. Palpatine would still have launched his take-over. Would still have been willing to wade through blood and over corpses to achieve his goals. Would still have managed, by hook or by crook, to malign the Jedi on the galactic stage - the people who are even now cursing the Jedi? If they are foolish enough to believe that the Jedi would ever have turned against them, they would have believed as such eventually anyway.

But Obi-Wan, as a Jedi, has helped people. Has saved worlds. Has been - and still remains - a light in dark places. And for all that both mother and son are imprisoned, Palpatine does not have them.

Agreed. Theseus and Percival want justice, but justice has already been served. Locking Grindelwald up for a second life sentence would simply be cruel. 

But how to convince the Wizarding World?
rakasha: (Default)

Hmm, I don’t know. There’s a part of me that ships him with Elphias Doge. 

But only after Grindelfuck has been locked up because we know how possessive he is. 

I think the twins and Aberforth would be fine with it, as long as Albus was happy and his spouse treated him right. 

@hamelin-born Your thoughts?

Apparently, at least in the EU, Palpatine wasn’t lying when he said that Anakin killed Padme. When he Force-choked her, he damaged her trachea. The robots who were treating her on Polis Massa were unfamiliar with human anatomy and physiology and weren’t able to detect and treat it, leading to her death. 

I don’t know if this still holds true for the new canon, but fuck, right in my Anidala feels. 

Oh, but now this makes me want something where Obi-Wan reacts to the droids saying she’d ‘lost the will to live’ by going ‘that’s not like Padme’ and checking her over with the force, and discovering the damage - and he’s not good enough at force healing to completely fix the damage, but he’s good enough at it to keep her alive while the droids are reprogammed and can actually help her- but doing so causes a force bond between them. Vader wakes up and discovers he didn’t kill his wife - but only because Obi-Wan Kenobi saved her…

Cue Vader obsessively stalking them both….(Can this also be an AU where Anakin does not get burned to shit and ends in Obianidala?)

@hamelin-born What do you think?

This sounds like an excellent set up for a three-way Force Bond. Which is - probably all but unprecedented; the three of them are essentially making it up as they go along.

But I would bet hard currency that the establishment of the three-way Force Bond and Obi-Wan saving Padme flips Vader from homicidal possessiveness to - well, homicidal possessiveness, as focused squarely on Padme and Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan, after all, is his. He saved Padme. He didn’t attack when he had the opportunity to seriously wound and/or kill Lord Vader. He was there when the twins were born. Obi-Wan has proven, though word and action, that he cares and Vaderkin is not going to let him go.

Of course, he has to catch the man first.

Oooh, three way force bond, yessss… Vaderkin is just like - whelp, i now have a husband as well as a wife. The force gave him to me. \The force killed Qui-Gon to give him to me. He’s mine. That bit in the Darth Vader comics where he finds out about Luke and goes ‘he will be mine. It will all be mine’? it’s like that, but constantly. Padme and Obi-Wan are his. The children are his. The galaxy will soon be his…

And with a force bond, there’s no way Padme and Obi-Wan can hide on Tattooine - they’d have to keep running, and running, and running - and it’s wearing them down…How do you think Obi-Wan felt when he first saw that he was wanted only alive, like Padme?

Especially if he can sense the homicidal possessiveness through the force bond, and starts to realise what it means…

Well, Vader and Obi-Wan had a Force Bond - leftover from their time as Master and Apprentice - and ‘Old Ben’ Kenobi managed to hide from his former student for approximately twenty years. And in the comics - well, Vader was very interested in tracking down Obi-Wan Kenobi. So it might not be quite that simple.

Obi-Wan probably felt a sick sense of horror, because he could think of so many things that were much, much worse then death. Though I imagine that his jaw would drop when he saw the marriage license that Vaderkin had filed on his behalf - lo and behold, Obi-Wan Kenobi is now legally married to to Padme Naberrie and Darth Vader (aka Anakin Skywalker). 

…I imagine that Padme is also taken aback by that for several minutes before shock transmutes into exasperation. Because of course Anakin would do something exactly like this.

Obi-Wan probably very quickly works on teaching Padme shielding. Because, at this point, because she has never had any need for being taught how to shield herself off from a Force Bond, due to being non-Force sensitive, she is the weak link in their attempts to hide from Vaderkin. Once Padme has shielding down, though, Vader’s attempts to find them become more difficult. 

There were so many horrible things that went through Obi-Wan’s mind when he saw that. Being tortured for information on the location of any other surviving Jedi, for any information on the fledgling Rebellion, being forced to Turn….

The marriage license definitely sends him for a loop. Although, given the horrible, slick, black feeling of possessiveness that he is still able to feel from his suppressed Force bond with Anakin, he reflects that he really shouldn’t have been surprised. 

Padme is just so done with you, Anakin. So, so done. 

(Sorry for the late response. I haven’t been feeling so hot this week and then I promised I’d take my little sister to see Lego Batman today (which was freaking amazing and hilarious)).

I think it’s fanon that Padme is at least slightly Force-sensitive - not enough for training or flashy visual effects, but enough to be slightly sensitive.

Part of Obi-Wan’s training probably included him using their own Force-Bond as an example - gently brushing the edges of her mind so she would know what it felt like, tugging, ever-so-carefully, on the link between them - once Padme had a better grasp of what was inside her head and what wasn’t part of her, it went a lot quicker. …and if, in the process, she gained a better understanding of who Obi-Wan was, from the inside-out, the grief burning beneath the man’s skin - well.

Obi-Wan and Padme probably shared a glass of something extremely alcoholic and (sarcastically) toasted to their marriage. The Wedding License that Vaderkin had dug up was a three-way one, meaning that they’re all married to each other - rather then both of them simply being married to Lord Vader. 

Do you think that Obi-Wan and Padme would split up? I rather doubt it; to begin with, they probably had to travel together for a while as Obi-Wan taught Padme how to shield. And after that - well. It might not have been safety in numbers, but Padme probably had had a first-hand glimpse of how much Obi-Wan was hurting, how pretty much everyone he has ever cared with - ever shared any kind of connection with, be it ‘normal’ or a Force-Bond inspired one, has either died, left, or betrayed him. In an odd way, Padme is the last person he cares about who has done none of the above, although he fully expects her to either hate him or leave at the first opportunity.

Padme, perhaps, might choose not to leave him.

If she does, she will unique in that she’s the first person in forever who has chosen him. (Obi-Wan has always been the second choice, never the first. He’s grown used to it.)

I think that Luke and Leia still might end up separated on Alderaan and Tatooine; for one, in those first, frantic months, Padme and Obi-Wan could not take the risk of Vader tracing their Force Bonds back and finding them. Later on - later on, the twins were established. The twins were safe, and if Vader was chasing them, he was not looking for the children. (He did not know the child’s gender. He did not know how many of them there were. Luke and Leia were safest far, far away from Padme and Obi-Wan).

Pfft, of course. How dare they assume that they are a follower of Grindelwald, that guy is an asshole! Their Lord is so much better, how could they possibly think they would follow Grindelstank? (And of course Theseus teaches his niblings well. He knows what the magical law enforcement is like on a whole toward people like his niblings. He knows all too well). 

And now my Gramander brain is going “What if this gets Graves intrigued and it ends up with him meeting Newt and falling in love with this man who is not afraid in the slightest to tell the Magical Community where to stick its prejudices…?

(cont) This, by the way, is yet another possible explanation for why Percival Graves absolutely /refuses/ to participate in the office Secret Santa exchange. He probably would insist that any gifts have the receipt stapled to them, just to verify that they came from a trusted source.

Oh boy, that was probably a very, very bad day for the Graves family. Percival is rightfully paranoid; even more so after he has children of his own.

(part 2) Stories of a Dark Lord start sweeping the continent as an oblivious Newt continues on - stories of a Dark Lord who commands the fiercest of beasts, who has no mercy on his enemies. And the stories grow in the telling, helped along by sightings of Newt with animals and how he takes down more poaching rings. They say there’s a new Dark Lord, drifting along the fringes of society, with no followers - a Dark Lord as of old, more interested in research and knowledge then conquest (cont)

(part 3). They say this is a Dark Lord all the more dangerous because he cares nothing for humanity, just for his own pursuits. Eventually, the rumor reaches Europe, reaches Theseus - who raises an eyebrow, and writes his brother a letter. Newt, meanwhile, is SO TERRIBLY EMBARASSED. He didn’t mean for the rumors to spread, he didn’t mean to - WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY’RE CALLING HIM A DARK LORD THESEUS, THESESUS, THIS ISN’T FUNNY! (cont)

(part 4). Thus, Newt Scamander becomes an unwilling (and very grumpy) Dark Lord. Who doesn’t actually use dark magic. …I now simply have the mental image of Newt facing off against Grindelwald, and Grindelwald peering at him in recognition, going “Wait a moment, aren’t you Lord - ” Newt just /burns/ red. “YES YES ALL RIGHT LET’S FIGHT ALREADY. Please?”

None of them realize that Newt is not, in fact, a Dark Lord, he is a magizoologist who loves animals far, far more than he values his own safety. He just also happens to be very talented at dueling. 

Theseus, meanwhile, just about busts a gut laughing. Newt won’t talk to him for weeks after.
