For fpb “…a HP/Star Wars crossover…”
Title: Of Bats & Magic Men


“That must be disconcerting,” Whie commented, watching the bats flying out of the orange cat’s nose.

Ginny snarled, her hand brandishing the stick like a lightsabre and she opened her mouth to say -

“So what happens when an enemy does this?”

And in one swift movement, Scout reached out with one hand and the sticks flew out of the black-robed teenagers’ hands and into her own. She snapped them into twigs.

Ginny was too shocked to even move. Harry was faster. His hand flew out, “Stupefy!” he shouted.

The spell caught Scout flat in the back and she flew into the wall. Whie was already rushing, hand outstretched and tightening into a fist.

Harry felt the words close in his throat. Ginny rushed forward, but the other redhead had risen and the witch found herself in a bind as effective as a Full Body Bind.

“As you can see, Madam, without your magic sticks or your magic words, you are as futile as any non-sensitive.”

The four teenagers turned to see the new arrivals. Dooku and McGonagall stood at the doorway, the former smiling in his usual sardonic way, the latter frowning.

“Be that as it may, your boy will release my student or I will hurt you with my wand and my words.”

She was quick. Dooku stared down at the stick poking into his chest and his eyes narrowed. His hand twitched at his side, and he considered snapping her neck. Then he shrugged. The search for recruits in other worlds would not yield fruit here; and a demonstration was one thing: leaving behind enemies that could come back to haunt one was another.

He caught Whie’s eye and nodded.

Whie’s fist fell and so did Harry, to his knees and choking. Scout handed the broken wands to Ginny who snatched them up, tears of anger in her eyes.

“If you please, Madam,” Dooku said, staring pointedly at the wand to his chest. Slowly, every inch wary, she drew the wand away. She didn’t put it back in her robes but held it firmly against her side. Dooku bowed deeply and with a short “Whie, Scout” he left, his robes flying around him.

Whie and Scout gave the other two one last glare, and followed. Ginny stretched out a hand, a wandless spell forming in her mind. Without turning back, Whie drew his lightsabre and the spell rebounded against the blue flame.

While Harry and McGonagall attempted to get the counter curse from Ginny – whose world was filled with bats and could not speak for screaming – the Jedi made their exit.

Title: Second Opinion

I’m terrible at droid dialogue but here goes nothing.

“Really, Artoo, I think it’s disgraceful the no-talent buffoons that masquerade the galaxy, claiming to be Sentient Anatomical & Medical Android Specialists.”

Toot.

“Indeed, it’s just a fancy name for a whole lot of incompetence.”

Too hoo noot. Boop. Beep too?

“Well, I admit that it was serviceable…”

Too too beep.

“… and perhaps humans may not require the advanced anti-electrocution and High Speed Data transfer protocols our appendages provide…”

Too too boop.

“… but couldn’t they have at least upgraded the finishing? Chrome-plast, dura-steel-plex or even plexi-ore would have been a much nicer covering than that biodegradable, human-flesh-colored outer covering on Master Luke’s new appendage!”

Toot.

“Short-changing? I completely agree. Why, even you could have done a better job than those medi-droid quacks!”

WOOT?!

For bobill: “…a ficlet, anything you'd like, but something you haven't thought up of yet as you read this post. Something spontaneous…”

Title: Mirror, Mirror
Fandom: Star Wars AU.

“So the prodigal returns at last.”

“Did you really think I would leave my child with a monster?”

“And there I was thinking you had come to your senses.”

“Your Majesty, Ruler of the Empire, you forget that of the two of us, it is I who can not afford to live in delusions.”

“Did that hurt? There are few besides you who will answer truthfully.”

“Why ask when you already know the answer?”

“But I don’t. I don’t feel your emotions anymore. We used to be two halves of the same whole but you tore our bond into shreds. Now, all I sense from you is a mirror.”

“I tore our bond? So even after everything, I am still the gullible fool to you? Or have you really completely given yourself to your fantasy world?”

“So you still sense me?”

“I sense your anger. I sense your pain. I sense your desperation. I sense your madness.”

“Let me know when it stops hurting.”

“She told me what you did to her.”

“She is my daughter. I am her-”

“It takes more than blood to make a parent. Heaven knows we learnt that the hard way. What kind of fiend does that to their own child?”

“I did it to make her stronger. The way we were taught.”

“Yes, to make her stronger. Because to you that’s what she is – a very unique, very powerful, very expensive weapon.”

“How dare you? I love her! I loved you, you treacherous viper! Stop laughing! Stop!”

“You call me a snake. You are poison. He made you in his own image. You’ve never loved anything or anyone but yourself.”

“Even you cannot talk and scream at the same time. You always forget, don’t you, brother? You hurt me and I hurt you back. Only I do it so much better.”

I am both honoured and impressed. You cheerfully violated the First Gutless Law of Crossovers - never let one side clearly prevail over the other - and followed FPB's First Law of Effective Writing - never explain unless you have to. In my book, minimum explanation equals maximum suggestive power. Which is why "my" drabble waw both fun and involving. Very well done.

First Gutless Law of Crossovers

lol! Being a total n00bie to crossovers - this was my first! - I didn't know that. But won't that rule only be a guideline of sorts? /pirate

FPB's First Law of Effective Writing - never explain unless you have to.

I call it my 1st Law of Making Sure that A Drabble Doesn't Turn into An Epic because My Muse Is On Crack. ;)

I'm really, really glad you liked it!

Thank you! That put a nice smile on my day. :)

Nicely done, especially for thinking you don't do droid dialogue very well. I didn't realize Threepio was so opinionated about prosthetics. I'm willing to bet he admired Master Anakin's, which begs the question which one did he like more, the version at the end of AOTC, or the one Anakin was wearing during ROTS?

Again, great job!
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: July 3rd, 2008 11:48 am (UTC) (Link)
I figured that Threepio would think Luke's hand being amputated as a good opportunity for him to have upgraded his limbs! :D

Threepio probably preferred Anakin's prosthetic hand at the end of AotC. It was uncannily like his own limbs, wasn't it? :p

The Artoo and Threepio one is priceless. :D

By the way, I missed your birthday while I was gone in Disney. What would you like? :)

*g* I knew you'd like that one best of all. :D

Well, first you'll have to tell me what you like by way of ficlet or drabble. ;) Then I'll think of something appropriate by way of <retaliation. :P BTW, I've finally been able to watch AVATAR! Turns out, it's been showing all this while on cable on a kiddie channel that I never watch. Wow, you were right. It's awesome. :D Is it really true that there won't be a Season 4?
fialleril From: fialleril Date: July 3rd, 2008 10:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Predictable, am I? ;)

Wait, why do you need to write me another ficlet? You already wrote two fabulous Kitster ficlets! But I can make you some icons, too, if you'd prefer that. :)

Woo hoo! I've got you hooked on Avatar! :D How far have you gotten with it? I suspect you might be a Mai fan (at least, I hope so).

It is true there won't be a Season 4. But a live action movie is in the works.

That’s life, princess. Deal with it. :P


I just finished 3X13, ‘The Fire-bending Masters’. I’ll probably watch Episodes 14 & 15 tonight and I think I’m all caught up, right? Then I can let myself go crazy in the fandom. :P

Avatar is awesome. I can’t believe how much in love I am with the world, the characters and the story itself. What a great show: humor and angst and Serious Moral Issues and mythology and back-story and environmental issues and Appa!!! Yep, you’ve definitely got me hooked. >)

I like love Mai!!!** (I smile whenever I remember her ‘Azula can burn me with her mad fire-bending skills but I’m not entering that sewer’). I like almost all the characters, even the bad guys like Ozzai (sp?) and Azula. But for once, it’s the good guys that I’m in love with: Aang, Katara, Sokka and Toph are the characters I totally watch the show for. And, of course, Uncle Iroh – the Dragon of the West – who’s probably the most awesome character ever.

It is true there won't be a Season 4. But a live action movie is in the works.

*sigh* But in a way, I’m glad that I discovered it so close to its end. I can’t imagine being hooked on something for this long and living through the cliffhangers. And shows are always better when they have a definite End and not abuse its popularity. Kudos to the writers for having the good sense and the storytelling integrity to accept when they’ve reached the End.


**Edit: I'm all caught up now! :D

Huh. Well then, if you're that insistent, I'll give you a request that is unspeakably cruel. ;) (That's what you get for calling me princess!)

I should like a fic with Iroh and Obi-Wan, talking over tea about their headstrong proteges. :D

Now, I still need to know what you'd like for your birthday. Icons or fic is fine with me, but I should warn you that the fic will probably take longer. ;)

I love the Avatar world. There's so much of depth going on there, especially for a children's show. The fact that they actually got into a father abusing, disfiguring, and exiling his own child...not to mention the genocide of an entire people. That's some pretty heavy stuff for a kids' show.

I have to admit, though, that I'm partial to the Fire Nation characters. Mai is my absolute favorite, and was so almost from the moment she appeared. But I love them all, really. I'm kind of hoping for an Azula redemption in the finale: something where she would turn on Ozai to save Zuko, and ending up dying. (Yeah, Darth Vader style. Like I said, I'm predictable.)

I also thoroughly enjoy the fact that Ozai is voiced by Mark Hamill. :D

I'm glad you discovered Avatar late enough that you don't really have to wait long for the finale. ;) The network has been really odd about when it releases episodes. Everything from "Western Air Temple" on hasn't actually aired on American television yet - it's just been leaked online.

And don't forget the Owl-spirit of the library ranting about how humans are only interested in knowledge as a weapon and that they (and the *they* here are the good guys. Fancy that!) are not the first nor will they be the last to think that their war is a righteous one. Then there are the smaller things like: the Earth Kingdom crumbling under its internal corruption; the Utopia of Bai Sing Sei being caused by people sacrificing their freedom for security; good guys using deplorable methods - the general in "The Avatar State", Jet; people dying and not coming back - Yuen, and Jet. And these are the ones I remember right this moment.



[ln meta-rant]You know what I think? I think that until very recently, children's stories dealt with some pretty heavy-duty stuff. Like the stepmother in the original Sleeping Beauty being her own mother; or the whole theological meta that was Hans Christen Andersen's the Little Mermaid; to say nothing of Hansel & Gretel murdering the old witch in self-defense. It's in these *modern* times that children's stories have been dumbed down to cover the nasty. Which just matches the craziness of human development because modern children (or at least children in the "developed" world) are both older and at the same time have less responsibilities than their counterparts of yore.[/end rant]


I have to admit, though, that I'm partial to the Fire Nation characters. ... I'm kind of hoping for an Azula redemption in the finale: something where she would turn on Ozai to save Zuko, and ending up dying. (Yeah, Darth Vader style. Like I said, I'm predictable.)

I can't make up my mind if Azula isn't supposed to be Palpatine in this story and Zuko is Vader. It is sad that only Zuko gets to have an internal conflict between good and evil when they are both descendants of Avatar Ruko and the greedy Fire Lord that killed his best friend to conquer the world. You can even argue that Zuko doesn't really have to struggle against evil within him. He is the victim of indoctrination and an overwhelming desire to have his father's love and esteem. The closest he's ever come to acting out of evil was when he stole that horse-ostrich from the earth family. Azula on the other hand is shown to be an evil genius from childhood. Rather than an internal conflict within Zuko, I think it's more likely that Zuko got all the Avatar/good/mother genes while Azula got all the Evil Fire Lord/generally evil/father genes and the conflict is between the two siblings.

I can't say I'll be sad if Azula goes down, as Iroh put it.

I like the Fire Nation characters but I have to admit, I like the good guys just a little more. Aang is my absolute favourite character: this twelve-year-old boy with a twelve-year-old personality to boot channeling the spirit of the world and the wisdom and experiences of a line of powerful Bending Masters going as far back as the beginning of the world. Aang is like the ultimate Chosen One and I guess I'm a little of a Chosen One junkie. :P Then of course, there's Katara and Sokka and Toph and if I were to start talking about those three, it won't fit everything into one comment box. :D

One of the great things about Avatar is how interesting all the characters are. Even Ozzai the Child-Burning, Almost Child-Killing and definitely Brother-Back-Stabbing King of all that is evil and deplorable. As for being voiced by Mark Hamill, doesn't that give you crossover plot bunnies? *g*


I'm glad you discovered Avatar late enough that you don't really have to wait long for the finale. ;)

So am I. I had no luck downloading the episodes at first and I bought the Season 1 & 2 DVDs on the strength of your recommendation alone.

I will have my revenge. /Sith-voice.

So, um... can I know what it is? 'Cause I do want to do something for your birthday. I may just have to make a batch of Aang icons or something if I don't get a tip soon. ;)

As for blurring the lines between good and evil, don't forget Katara's lovely "stealing is okay as long as it's from pirates" philosophy. And Toph et al's glee at scamming average Fire Nation citizens out of their money.

As for the modern tendency to remove the nasty from fairy tales, I totally agree with you. Except I think you meant Snow White, not Sleeping Beauty, who never had a stepmother per say.

On a side note, the thing that really interests me about Snow White is why her mother feels so desperate to be the fairest in the land. It's because the King will only remain married to her as long as she is. If someone else is now fairest, it's time to switch queens. So there's all sorts of interesting overtones of incest between Snow White and her father, as well.

About Azula: Maybe she is a bit like Palpatine, but I'd argue she also has the same weakness. Palpatine did seem to actually care about Anakin, and I think there's evidence that Azula actually cares about Zuko: the way they work together in the caverns under Ba Sing Se, the way she's always looking out for him at the beginning of season 3 (and it's obvious that she didn't tell their father that he was visiting Iroh, for example), and even her deep-seated anger at him in Boiling Rock, which smacks of betrayal. She hates him more then than she ever did before, and it seems to me that there's hurt behind that hatred.

So, yeah, on the one hand I won't be surprised if Azula simply "goes down" like Iroh said. But on the other hand, I can genuinely see her pulling something for Zuko's sake. Or maybe Ty Lee's or Mai's.

I will actually be very sad, though, if Azula is just killed. I mean, for all that she's a conniving evil genius, she's also just a 14 year old girl. And ultimately she's been just as much the victim of indoctrination as Zuko, if not more so. After all, she was the one hand-picked by their father.

I bought the Season 1 & 2 DVDs on the strength of your recommendation alone.

Er, wow. In that case, I'm really glad you like it! I still haven't bought to DVDs myself. I'm cheap. ;)

Would you really? Customized icons are always the best! One of my favourite Katara moments is that scene when she’s getting her butt kicked by the Water-bending Master but she still keeps going. If there’s a ‘Well behaved women never made history’ moment, it would be that one. Then I’d love one of Toph in her little girl dress, going all ‘Leave them, they’re mine’ to Katara and Sokka in the Earthbending WWF ring. And anything else you can think of.

As for the modern tendency to remove the nasty from fairy tales, I totally agree with you. Except I think you meant Snow White, not Sleeping Beauty, who never had a stepmother per say.

::face palm:: The funny thing is that I’m trying to remember the Sleeping Beauty story and I can’t for the life of me do so. I keep having this mental block of Snow White dying/going into a coma because of an apple stuck in her throat.

About Azula:

See below. It made this reply a tard too long. Apparently Avatar is breaking out all the meta instincts in me. :p


Er, wow. In that case, I'm really glad you like it! I still haven't bought to DVDs myself. I'm cheap. ;)

About Azula

About Azula: You are right. She is young, and it didn’t help that Ozzai seems to have, from the moment of her birth, used her as a pawn in the three-way chess match he was playing with Azulon and Iroh. There’s also the fact that her mother, who might have been a positive influence in her life, neglected her for Zuko. But there does seem to be something genuinely ‘wrong’ about Azula. It’s not anything she’s done to Zuko, not even gloating about ‘Daddy’s going to kill you’, because while creepy, this could just be a little girl with sibling rivalry issues who doesn’t really understand death. What makes Azula ‘wrong’ is the fact that her first loyalty is to her father, Ozzai, but when Ozzai gets punished by Azulon, little!Azula gloats with glee.


Her ability to care about people seems limited to their usefulness to her. She admits to Zuko in Bai Sing Sei (this is the most Palpatine-ish aspect of Azula: she can use the truth as well as lies to her advantage) that she plotted every aspect of her coup and Zuko’s role at her side was integral. (Which is true: she was losing against Katara). Zuko returns to the home and honour he’s always longed for at her side and by her grace. With his restored place as Crown Prince of the Fire Nation and future Fire Lord, he’s not only useful to her again but indebted to her. Even more importantly, he’s no longer the wimpy Mommy’s boy brother she despised as a child. His turnaround in Bai Sing Se showed her that he can be true Fire Lord material and she respects him for that the same way Ozzai must have risen in her mind’s estimation when he killed (or contributed in killing) Azulon and usurped Iroh’s throne. By turning his back on his mother’s and Iroh’s ‘pacifist’ teaching and showing the kind of ruthlessness and scheming she thrives on, Zuko has become the brother she’s always wanted.


About the Boiling Rock: I actually thought that Mai’s betrayal hurt her even more than Zuko’s. I think Zuko disappointed her and inconvenienced her when he flew the coop and told Ozzai that ‘Azula really did NOT kill the Avatar’. But Mai! One of Azula’s ‘chosen’. (She didn’t choose Zuko. He wasn’t her brother by choice). I see Azula as more hurt than angered by Mai’s ‘I love Zuko more than I fear you’ because up until that moment, Azula believed that it was love and fear that kept Mai and Ty Lee with her. She genuinely liked and respected them. To hear Mai reduce their years of friendship to ‘fear’ and to have Ty Lee turn against her must have been devastating. I won’t be surprised if it unhinges her completely.

Re: About Azula

At first I thought Azula might be intended as literally a psychopath or sociopath. But then there were those instances where she showed signs of genuinely caring for Zuko (as Palpatine similarly shows signs of genuinely caring for Anakin), and since a sociopath is literally incapable of caring for others, I decided that Azula must just be a very well conditioned child of the Fire Nation.

For a crazy extensive list of times Azula seemed to genuinely care about Zuko, see this thread. :D

About Boiling Rock: I suspect that Mai and Ty Lee's betrayal really will unhinge Azula completely. At least, it looks that way from the trailers. And since the rest of the remaining episodes are coming out by this Saturday, we'll know for sure soon! :D
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: July 14th, 2008 10:46 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: About Azula

I decided that Azula must just be a very well conditioned child of the Fire Nation.

Perhaps she was conditioned so well because there was something intrinsic to her nature that thrived with the Fire Nation? When you watch that flashback in ‘Zuko Alone’ when Iroh writes his letter about burning BSS to the ground and he, Ursa, Zuko and Azula have a good long laugh over it, you can see that the Fire Nation conditioning isn’t not the exception but the rule.

Maybe sociopath isn’t the right word. I don’t think Azula is completely devoid of feelings for Zuko, especially in early Fire when he’s living up to the image of the big brother she’s always wanted (i.e. more Ozzai-evil and less Iroh-good). But I also think that she only ever cares for people in the sense that she sees them as an extension of herself via blood or usefulness; and she will take pleasure if that same person is hurting. e.g. in the Beach, when she smiles at Zuko saying he’s still not happy. In a way, that almost makes her even more horrible: the ‘I will kill you though I love you if your death will serve me more’.

And since the rest of the remaining episodes are coming out by this Saturday, we'll know for sure soon! :D

I can’t wait! I think the idea of Azula stepping in and saving someone from Ozzai (for some reason, I think this person will more likely to be Ursa than Zuko) would be awesome.

Re: About Azula

Long story short I think Azula is in need of some serious therapy. But I don't think they really have that in Avatar world, so... :(

Also, someday I will write meta on why, although I love Iroh with an unnatural love, he is actually not quite as good a wise mentor and father figure as everyone seems to think he is. But alas, today is not that day...

I never even thought of Azula saving Ursa from Ozai! But now that you mention it...I like that idea lots. Alternatively, I would also really love Ursa stepping in to save Azula (should it somehow come to that). Or doing anything to show that she really loved her daughter, actually.

LOL! This reminds me of when I first saw your tea icon and wondered who the Palpatine-like character in it was. :P

I've always seen Iroh as projecting Lu Ten into Zuko a lot. There may even be a part of him that was partly gleeful that Zuko was banished and he and his son nephew could travel around the world indefinitely, drinking tea and following a wild goose chase (which was what the mission was supposed to have been). And yeah, there'll always be something a tard creepy about him suggesting to Yue that she commit suicide (essentially what she did) to revive the moon spirit. I mean, it was necessary that she do so and she may have come to that conclusion all on her own: but I always thought it was weird that he put the idea into her head. (And that it was even weirder that Sokka with his Fire Nation prejudice never held this against Uncle Iroh but that is another story).


I never even thought of Azula saving Ursa from Ozai! But now that you mention it...I like that idea lots. Alternatively, I would also really love Ursa stepping in to save Azula (should it somehow come to that). Or doing anything to show that she really loved her daughter, actually.

Edit: One of the things I love about Avatar is that even the good guys are not completely, all-the-time, a hundred percent good. (Except maybe Avatar Roku.)

I'm not sure if Ursa really loved her daughter more than she feared Azula and that is where I think Azula's tragedy lies. She was brought up by her father and grandfather, and perhaps something wrong within her own nature, to see people's respect/fear as devotion. Which is why I see Mai turning her hurting her badly, not so much the betrayal, but the words Mai uses: "I love him more than I fear you." Azula was probably thinking to herself at that moment: "so you never loved me?!" and maybe even "Just like my mother! Every one loves Zuko and fears me!"

Man, now I know where to go to get some good cliffhangers! Loved the HP/SW crossover. If you didn't make the Jedi win so easily, it would have been hard to tell who was defending against who.

Droid talk was quite amusing. I've never seen Artoo get that much dialogue time before, but it definitely adds.

Oh man, it took me a couple reads to come up with an idea about Mirror Mirror... I'm going to guess we're referring to Padme, talking to herself, though I guess there are many other possibilities. Interesting to see this inner debate. You always make her so tragic (if indeed she is the main character), like she had something great and now she's just kind of nothing.

Thanks for the birthday fics! They're awesome as always!

No, neither the mother nor the little girl is Padme. I started writing with a vague idea and then I found myself working on something rather controversial. So I sort of blanked out the names. :P

I'm glad you enjoyed them. *hugs*

"Mirror, Mirror" is intriguing. I'm really not sure who the participants are. For a moment I guessed Luke and Leia arguing about Jaina, but there's some names in there that Luke and Leia would never call each other. I'll probably puzzle over this one for a while.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: July 14th, 2008 08:27 am (UTC) (Link)

Boy, you are good!! You are scaringly close to solving the mystery. I will give you a hint and say that out of the three characters you mentioned, you guessed two correctly and it would be impossible for you to guess the third because it's original to the AU of this vignette.
