    “Ben. You sounded like you were in a hurry on the phone, what’s going on?”

    Ben sets the tray down on the desk, moves with a measured sort of eloquence and betrays none of the excitement from earlier. But his eyes shine, and his smile is tight in the manner of someone who is about to tell a great story—or a secret. “You haven’t been to Sundari yet, have you?”

    “No,” he shakes his head. Ben begins pouring tea. “I haven’t had any reason to go.”

    “As it happens, I’ve found you one,” Ben promises, and hands him his cup before pouring his own, settling down into his own chair. “Tell me, what do you know of Keldabe?”

    “It’s a myth,” Luke says immediately. And it’s a well-known one at that. “It... was the capital city of ancient Mandalore. It’s referred to in sources from around the Great Iron Road, but… there’s no other evidence that it ever actually existed. Old legends say it sank into the sea.” Which is silly, really, because Mandalore is landlocked, and mostly desert.

    Ben hums, and carefully sips his undoubtedly scalding tea from his cup.

    Luke waits, feels an edge of frustration when he is kept waiting, wondering just where Ben intends to take this. “Look, I went to some of Professor Tano’s lectures and did some reading for my thesis, but… I don’t know much about the Mandalorians. Isn’t this your area?”

    Originally, Ben specialised in the same discipline as Luke, and The Jedi Code: Knights and Peacekeepers by Benjamin Kenobi is probably on every undergrad reading list on the continent, if not in the world. However, over the last decade or so, Mandalorian warrior culture has been Ben’s new passion. He is still widely in demand as a consultant and would often head out to Jedi-related finds, but lately he has frequented conferences in Sundari and Ronion alike over the ones in Coruscant.

    “I believe,” Ben says, slow and deliberate, “if this lead indeed proves true, this venture could be both our areas.”

    “What lead?”

    There’s a glint in Ben’s eye when he speaks next. “We’ve found Keldabe.”

    A chill goes down Luke’s spine. Found Keldabe. That would be the archaeological achievement of a lifetime, were it true.

    “Congratulations,” he says, genuinely. “That’s… that’s amazing. Really. But I don’t—how is this related to my research?”

    “You don’t see how this is related to your research on the Jedi-Mandalorian hostilities? You wrote a whole chapter in your thesis on the possible reconciliation between them.”

    “Based on a single record from Coruscant that references peace negotiations with Mand’alor the Uniter, but doesn't appear anywhere else in the world and likely didn’t lead to…” he stops as Ben’s words catch up with him and bring a sudden flash of heart-pounding clarity. “You think Keldabe is my missing piece?”

    Luke: I do not have a crush on Din.

    Leia: Yes you do.

    Han: Yes you do.

    Chewie: Yes you do.

    Boba Fett: Yes you do.

    Every single person who’s ever met him: Yes you do.

    Luke: Din help me out here.

    Din: To be honest I was working under the assumption you had a crush on me.

    Ever in your favor, 3/7

    Bright eyes fixed at the camera, Grogu said: “I love you, Dad. We’ll be ok as long as we can. We love you.”

    Luke could see Djarin blink more heavily, and out of an impulse, he reached over the distance between them and took his hand in his prosthetic one. Djarin instinctively squeezed it so hard that Luke was not sure if his human hand could have handled it without bruising.

    “Please remember to water my kyber cactus every three days. We love you, Dad”, Grogu finished, and Rey took over:

    “Yeah, Grogu’s right. But I have more to say to the Gamemakers and the…” Beep. “…government and President Snow. You can all go…” Beep. “…yourselves, you…” Beeeeep. “The Districts will…” Beep. “…and then we’ll…” Beep. “…and you’ll…” Beeeeep. “We’re not your…” Beep. “…slaves.”

    She was still talking when the broadcast was abruptly cut off. Djarin’s voice broke into a quivering whisper as he said: “That’s my girl.”

    So the two Dinluke fics that are currently rent free in my head are “I Want a Moment to be Real” by Purplesauris and “oh the things we left behind” by furiosophie and they’re both very good at having these moments of Luke having these moments where he’s literally just some random dude. Where he’s just very small, very fragile, and very human. And that’s not to like, woobify Luke. Both these fics talk and have tons of scenes where Luke is the Luke Skywalker, mythos incarnate and everyone in the galaxy knows his face, knows his name, knows his legacy and he’s just, acting the part because he really just. is some guy. Who managed to do all these incredible things. And these two fics both really show him kind of being crushed by the weight of all that people suppose he is. It’s just really, really good. 

    #anyways. rent free #dinluke fic rec #fic rec #din will get his own post too probably. #these are both super good

    Din and Luke meeting, because Din is hunting a bounty. Luke naturally thinks it’s on him, and he’s excited about it, because this guy is tall, shiny, and has a nice voice.

    However, the bounty is not on him, and Luke is absolutely devastated that he does not have Din’s attention.

    Luke: I’m Luke Skywalker. How could you not be here for me?

    Din: What the fuck is a Skywalker?

    #fanfic#dinluke#skydalorian #din x luke #Luke: can I go on your hunt with you? #Din: please stop following me.

    Dinluke means more adventures for Din and dincobb means settling down and finding home for him. And when you put all three of them together, well, I guess it's just finding a home on the road.

    Six Sentence Sunday

    Thanks for the tag, @sadiebwrites! Here are six (maybe seven, shh, I can't count) sentences from Ch. 8 of my Dinluke WIP, All That You Can't Leave Behind.

    Luke heard the thunk of a beskar helmet against the floor. The singing started up again, this time unmodulated. Luke closed his eyes and listened. He knew it wasn’t for him, that he was trespassing on this moment, but Din’s tired, steady voice was like an anchor and Luke could do nothing but cling to it.

    Whatever is causing a child to suffer this way, he thought, I will destroy it.

    The Force flickered in his heart, a fragile little thing. Luke ignored it.

    I tag anyone who wants to play along!

    (@rotary-wing however is not off the hook. Sorry Smish. :} )

    Since I have a "party" scene in my latest chapter, I had to do the obligatory drawing of Luke and Din in fancy clothes lol. I used some outfits from the Old Republic game as inspiration, mixing and matching things, but Luke's cape is definitely borrowed from Lando. And for the heck of it, I gave a nod to my American Civil War novels by making Luke's outfit the same colors as a Union dress uniform. ❤️

    Here's chapter 7 of Chasing the Dawn, if you haven't seen the update yet!
