The Galaxy of Heroes poster thingy for Omega was just too pretty for me to not redraw, so here it is! I drew, like, 90% of this in my co-op class since I finished all my work in, like, the first three days. I really love how it turned out!

Coruscant Senate District Weekly: An excerpt from the Amidala-Skywalker Interviews
"The thing I struggled with the most," Skywalker said, contemplatively, "is what Jedi call 'attachment'. You're not supposed to prioritize the people you love just because you love them. But that's not how it was presented to me."
Skywalker shook his head, putting down the circuit board he had been examining. "Maybe it was my fault, maybe it was theirs. Maybe we were simply coming from perspectives too alien to another to reconcile. Whatever the cause, what I learned was that being unattached meant loving no one."
"I can't do that. I don't think anyone can do that, really." He smiled at me crookedly, a sort of cheerful self-mockery in his voice as he continues, "It's just that the other way is even harder. Be unattached means loving everyone."
full interview available on the holonet site here.
Summary: You are Tech’s little helper, literally. He recruits you to hang out with the Batch so he can make you crawl into small places and fix whatever he cannot reach. A sleepy moment and a weird dream are all it takes for something interesting to happen.

A/N: I have nothing to report, other than to send a huge thank you to everyone who’s been interacting with my latest Sticky Note post. Ugh, this community is the best. I’m actually working on making the sticky notes a DAILY affirmations thing.... would that be fun? Anyway, happy Tech Tuesday!
This fluff is dedicated to the lovely @d1n0-dan! Good luck in there!!! 💜
So, this is where you ended up in life. Soaring through space with five men who you’re sure will be the death of you. Why do you stay? Good question. Maybe it was your love of mechanical marvels like the Marauder. Or maybe it was the lovely connections you’ve made along the way. In all honesty… it was probably your infatuation with the tall dorky clone with goggles. Ugh, yeah, that’s totally it but you don’t want to just come out and say it!
You were idling on the ship’s ramp, legs kicking off the edge. Your thoughts were plagued by none other than Tech himself. He was the one who recruited you into the gang in the first place. On some crummy day he had literally bumped into you…
“Oh my! Are you alright? I wasn’t paying attention… YOU! You’re exactly the type of person I’ve been looking for. Yes, you’ll do wonderfully! Your stature is satisfactory for what I need. The perfect build for–”
You didn’t even give him a chance to explain himself. Without thinking you smacked him so hard his goggles came flying off. They landed somewhere across the hangar bay, the sound of their impact reverberating off the walls. Tech had turned around and walked all the way back to the Marauder after that. He didn’t even try to find his goggles! The interaction was just too much for him, so he tucked tail and left you alone. A few minutes later Hunter had come sprinting towards you. Once Tech had loosened up enough to tell his brothers what had happened, he had appeared to set the record straight and apologize on behalf of his di’kut brother. Tech had been talking about your stature in the most wholesome way anyone could. He wanted help reaching a compartment within the Marauder the rest of them were too big to fit into. That’s literally it. He meant you were small enough to help with his repairs and wanted to try and recruit you for help.
You felt so bad you rushed back with Hunter to return Tech’s goggles and apologize. The scene was hilarious! Both of you were sputtering messes trying to talk over each other to explain your errors. Finally when the dust settled you were offered a job, which you eagerly accepted. That fateful moment quickly became your fondest memory. Staying to help them with all of their issues was actually the most fun you’d had in ages. Dodging blaster bolts, jumping off cliffs, and making snacks for the boys was all in a days work! It was rough, but you were up for the challenge each day brought.
A clunking of boots behind you startles you from your rumination. You knew that gait anywhere...
“Ah! There you are. Are you busy? I need you to crawl back into the rear access hatch. I think I’ve finally cracked the wire configuration to cut our fuel consumption down by 0.09%!” He smiles down at you, obviously fishing for some kind of verbal acknowledgement. You smile up at him, kicking off the ramp to land on the soft dirt below.
“Wow Tech, that’s great! I’d be happy to mess with whatever you need me to.” You smile, walking with him towards the back of the ship. He’s clearly giddy with excitement as he all but tears the hatch door open for you.
“Here, you’ll need this to see what you’re doing. I don’t want you crossing the wrong wires in there.”
Tech hands you a small flashlight, which you happily take with you inside. It’s a tight fit, but you manage to crawl to the back of the compartment with relative ease. You’ve been back here a thousand times to tweak odds and ends before, so the anxiety of being in such a tight space has long been worn away. Now the cramped spaces you find yourself inside seem to almost comfort you. It might be weird, but hey! Your whole life is weird, and you wouldn’t trade it for all the stars in the galaxy.
“Are you ready for my instructions? I need you to take out blue 12 and replace it with yellow 6. They should be on a panel to your left.” Tech’s voice is muffled significantly by the machinery within the compartment. You yell back a quick okay before you’re clicking the flashlight on and placing it between your teeth. You make quick work of the new connections, splicing them into the correct ports within the panel. Thankfully the space back here is big enough for you to sit up comfortably.
You move through his instructions quickly and precisely. He would always acknowledge how fast you were at repairs. Without fail, after every praise, you would simply state that it’s nothing you did but he did. Tech was exceptionally good at dishing out directions, no matter the time crunch or pressure. If you needed someone to walk you through something, Tech was your guy!
“Splendid. Only one more splice and we should be good to go. Red 9 and Black 44.”
You do as he commands, twisting the wires together. Before you can call out to him, you yelp in surprise. A rogue spark had jumped across your knuckles to sear an angry line across them. You hear Tech knock on the outside of the ship a few times, worry laced in his voice.
“Are you okay in there?! Please tell me you’re okay… You’re okay right?!” The crunching of gravel alerts you to his nervous pacing outside. You’d never heard him this worked up before!
“Yes Tech, I’m fine! I just got zapped by a spark is all. Can I come out now?” You rub your knuckles, wincing at how tender they’ve become. You hear Tech say not quite yet, then something about bacta as his footsteps walk away. Great, you’re stuck in here for the time being. Well, it honestly wasn’t so bad in here. Actually, now that you’re really thinking about it, the inside of the Marauder is kind of cozy right now. The lingering warmth from the engines, coupled with the sound of the wind whistling over the hull is enough to put you into a contented daze. You really haven’t been getting enough sleep if you’re that tired wedged inside a hunk of metal. Your body slumps in exhaustion, eyelids growing heavy in the darkness. I’ll just rest my eyes a moment… you think. Yeah… Tech will be back soon…
Your dream is really fluffy. The ground underneath you gives way to puffy clouds and cotton duvets. You feel so warm and safe here in your very own mattress in the sky. Tiny Loth kittens start to crawl over your lap, mewling with their big adorable eyes. As you’re picking one up, you feel something tug hard on your leg. You look down to see Tech sitting on the edge of the bed, one hand wrapped firmly around your ankle. His stare is blank, face dull and expressionless. Seeing him like that really freaks you out. Even the kittens on your lap start to yowl and hiss at his presence, backs arched and hackles raised. His eyes never leave yours, mouth opening to say something… only nothing human comes out. A grinding noise of metal-on-metal seeps from his mouth, sending a sharp pang of terror through your body.
The kittens in your lap start to go wild. Their claws dig into your sides and scrape across your torso as they frenzy around you. You try to bat them away, but every time you do so they get more and more agitated. The volume of your dream is too much. You quickly find yourself clamping your hands over your ears to stifle the barrage to your senses.
Voices start to bubble up around you, though you can’t quite place them. Snippets of dialogue swirl in the white expanse of your dream.
Hurry up...might have been hurt…
How long have they been in there? Almost got it…
Can you see anything? Kriff they’re wedged in there… Hold on…
Please Maker… let them be okay…
Tech closes his mouth, silencing the awful noises. The feral kittens have disappeared, much to your relief. The outside voices grow louder, though you can’t focus on what they’re saying. When you lower your hands from your ears, Tech smiles. He opens his mouth again to speak, though thankfully this time he actually DOES speak.
“Are you okay? Talk to me cyare! Hello?! Answer me, PLEASE! Don’t worry, I know CPR!”
The grip on your ankle tightens as he yanks you across the mattress to settle in front of him. He smiles again, and before you can even fathom what he’s talking about, he closes the gap between you. His lips crash messily into yours, eyes fluttering shut behind his goggles. This dream-turned-nightmare was finally becoming a good dream again! You aren’t complaining, this is everything you wanted and more. You hum contentedly, wrapping your arms around his neck to press back against him. When you attempt to deepen the kiss, Tech pulls away from you. He smiles wider as you attempt to pull him back in for more, whining at his reluctance.
“Teeeech, come back! Pleaaaase…”
You hear a gasp so loud it pulls you halfway out of your dream. With a huff you tug at his shoulders one more time for good measure. He still doesn’t budge, and you’re left to pout defiantly at him.
The sound of dissonant laughter startles you so thoroughly you finally awaken from your dream. Your eyes shoot open as a bright and blinding light accosts your eyes. In your dream-seeped haze you realize that you’re laid out flat on the dusty ground. Tech is kneeling over you, covering his mouth with the back of his hand. He looks completely shell-shocked, eyes wide and pupils blown. You bring your hands down from where they’re resting on his shoulders to rub your eyes of their fog. Laughter still rings out next to you, though much quieter this time. It’s definitely Crosshair, you gather, from the way he snorts at the end of each breath.
You grunt at the rude awakening, squinting up at Tech. “Ughhhh… what happened? I was having the nicest dream…”
Crosshair doubles over so rapidly you twist your head to look up at him. He laughs so hard he almost falls to the ground with the force of it. Wrecker rolls his eyes next to him, smacking his shoulder playfully.
“Don’t make fun of them, it’s not nice!” Wrecker looks amused, but he’s holding his laughter in as best he can. Echo and Hunter stand awkwardly off to the side, faces flushed and eyes trying not to look directly at you.
The weight of the situation washes over you. Oh Maker no. You didn’t say that OUT LOUD… right?! You didn’t KISS HIM right?! No, no no NO!
“Tech… oh my Stars… I’m so sorry I didn’t—”
He blinks a few times before dropping his hand from his mouth, sucking in air. He had been so shocked by your reaction that he’d forgotten how to breathe properly. His cheeks burn so bright he’s mirroring the sun right now. A far-away look glosses his eyes, which are as big as saucers. He speaks up, cutting your jumbled apologies off.
“I-i-it’s qu…quite alright I uh… I b-better go and uh…” He doesn’t even finish his sentence before he’s launching himself to his feet. You had NEVER heard him stutter like that, nor forget to finish his thought. Two seconds later he is back inside the Marauder and away from the rest of you. Crosshair and Wrecker burst into laughter together, following after Tech to milk as much of this awkward situation as they can out of him. Hunter grumbles something about needing to corral the troublemakers before he too is rushing away from the scene.
Echo sighs, rubbing the back of his head. You sit up as he approaches you, holding a hand out to help you to your feet. When you turn to look back at the access hatch you were occupying, you gasp.
“Is that… WHAT?! Echo, please tell me what happened. I’m so confused...”
He sighs again, crossing his arms in front of his chest like a parent about to scold their child.
“Well, it seems as though someone fell asleep. Tech commed us freaking out because you weren’t answering him. We rushed back here so Wrecker could rip a bunch of the components out of the back so we could get to you. He thought you had gotten injured a lot worse than what you had disclosed to him earlier.”
You make a noise of frustration, slack-jawed and awestruck at the state of the Marauder. Wrecker had really done a number on the ship just to get you out.
“Oh. Uh… thanks Echo. One more thing…” You clamp your mouth shut, throat suddenly dry and cinching tight.
Echo holds a hand up to stop your question. “Yup. You did everything you’re probably thinking you did.” He chuckles, waving his hand as he turns and heads back towards the front of the ship. Before he climbs inside, he throws some parting words over his shoulder.
“You’re going to have some major repairs to attend to! Outside… and inside!”
Yikes. You weren’t sure what would be easier. Repairing the ship… or repairing your relationship with Tech!
small rant because of some toxic people in the fandom...
ok ok we get it.. you don’t like the how the bad batch is portrayed... so then just don’t watch the show! - but if you do want to speak out about the issues that you have, be polite in your conversations and comments. harassing others in the fandom is going to get you nowhere. spamming people about the problems with the show is not an effective way to make them listen to you. it’s not “raising awareness” or “educating” anyone. believe me, we already know how you feel. not everyone wants politics and real world issues shoved down their throat when they watch a tv show. when this aggressive attitude turns towards other fans, thats when it becomes a problem. we can’t do anything about how the characters look or what they say. we just want to enjoy the show. at this point, you are just making the fandom an unpleasant and hostile place for everyone. try to focus more on what you love about the show instead of what you hate. I truly do not understand how this is a hard concept to grasp. some of you really don’t know fandom etiquette and it shows.
