Summary:

Murder, mayhem, and mistaken identity! When a body turns up in Coruscant's underworld with a very familiar face, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are dispatched to investigate the case. Newly returned from the front lines of the Clone Wars, the two Jedi find themselves in a deadly game of cat and mouse: but are they the hunters or the hunted?

I rewrote this chapter four or five times, but two things remained consistent throughout each draft: Anakin being chained up (to a chair, a bed, and finally a wall) and a character named Felisha (at one point an Arkanian, but finalized as a Zeltron). POV shifted between Ina-Rati and Anakin before settling on Anakin; at one point Anakin was having flashes of the future instead of the past.

As with previous chapters, hairstyles for this chapter can be found on my Oxygen & Rust: Hair pinterest board (Felisha and Yeine in this case, since Ina-Rati's hairstyle carries over from the previous chapter).

“What did you say to your friend to get him to agree to come to the Underworld, if it’s so dangerous?” Ina-Rati asked.

“He’s a Jedi,” Griaa said, standing up on tiptoe to try and peer over the crowd around them. It had scattered when the hovercab had landed, but at its departure had immediately filled back in. “Crazy and dangerous is basically their stock in trade, at least the ones I know. We’re just lucky that he’s on Coruscant right now, since he’s been gone most of the past year because of the war.”

“Your friend’s a Jedi?” Ina-Rati said, with a burst of panic in the pit of her stomach. The last thing she wanted to see right now was another blasted Jedi.

Right now I'm trying to keep one chapter ahead of what's actually posted, which was useful as it meant that this time I could go back and make changes to this chapter as things came up in Rising 5. Even though I usually write WIPs, I don't normally do that, which is one of the reasons why I occasionally take really long breaks between chapters of Dust. (The only exceptions have been Dust 32 and 33, the last two Murder Island chapters, which were written concurrently.) It is pretty good motivation to actually write the next chapter if I'm not going to post the previous one until the next one is written, heh.

“Anakin?” Obi-Wan’s voice said. “You’re being uncharacteristically quiet. Is something wrong?”

“Just thinking about might-have-beens, Master.”

“Dwelling on lives that never were gains nothing but regret, my young Padawan,” Obi-Wan said, and in her voice Anakin heard the memory of countless sleepless nights spent reviewing the mistakes of their shared past. He had more than a few of his own, many recently.

“Yeah,” he said, the words heavy on his tongue. “I know.”

Obi-Wan made a sympathetic noise, made tinny by the comlink. “We are where the Force means us to be, Anakin.”

Bottom of the River is actually my NaNo novel this November, making it the first time I've done NaNo in four years. (The last time was 2008, my freshman year of college, and every November after that I was neck deep in academic hell.) So far it has already passed Dirt in the Machine in length, and will definitely pass Bad Moon Rising when I finish the current WIP chapter (River 5. I'm aiming for 10K per chapter just to have a nice round number for NaNoing purposes).

This is the longest chapter for any of my Star Wars fic yet (although I have chapters for Narnia/Dust that are almost twice as long), which is a fact that I'm kind of shocked by, though hell if I know why, at this point I ought to be aware of my tendencies as a writer.

(And yes, there are links to Obi-Wan's and Ina-Rati's hair styles at the end.)

Rating: PG-13
Content advisory: none
Summary: Returning to Coruscant from a mission, Obi-Wan Kenobi and her Padawan Anakin Skywalker are reunited with the newly-appointed Naboo Senator Padmé Amidala, who unwittingly draws them into the murky world of Republic politics. Lady!Obi-Wan AU, set six years after the events of TPM and three years before the events of AotC.
Disclaimer: Star Wars and its characters, situations, settings, etc., belong to George Lucas, LucasFilm, and Disney.
Author's notes: Part of the Oxygen and Rust series. There's some confusion about the chapter numbers, since AO3 went ahead and numbered the Interlude as Chapter 5. On AO3 there are seven chapters, with the interlude as 5; on LJ and DW there are six with the interlude unnumbered.

Previous chapters: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | Interlude: Anakin | 5 | AO3

A/N: As I do elsewhere, I'm basically picking and choosing characters and backstory from both the Star Wars: Republic comics and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series, as well as from movie canon.

Note: Quinlan and Aayla's amnesia backstory from the Star Wars: Republic comics is not being used here.

So this is a prequel to Dirt in the Machine, taking place about six years before Dirt and three years before AotC. Genderfuck, lady!Obi-Wan, with Padmé, Anakin, and a few others.

This chapter brings in material from the EU -- specifically from the Clone Wars comics. Hopefully it's fairly self-explanatory without prior knowledge of the EU.

Thanks to Dogstar for the beta! Previous chapters: 1 | 2 | 3

In which Anakin can't lie and Dooku and Obi-Wan both want something. Parts one and two, or here on the AO3. Thanks to [personal profile] dogstar for talking this through!

More lady!Obi-Wan. Light Anakin/Obi-Wan. First part here. It is also up at the AO3 here. In theory; the AO3 seems to exist to screw with me.

Thanks to [personal profile] dogstar for talking this through with me!

bedlamsbard: star wars rebels: hera peering around a corner (don't fuck with us (iconthology))
So here is a...thing. It is more genderfuck! Because apparently that is what I have decided to do with my current tenure in SW fandom, because thoughtful in-canon fic, who wants that when you can have genderfuck? Although I have no real idea why this fic is genderfuck; I have a theory I'm just playing with the Anakin/Obi-Wan relationship to see how much changes when one or the other or both of them is a different gender. This one is male Anakin and lady!Obi-Wan, and I think this Anakin is...more mellow, maybe? Less clashing testosterone than in canon, anyway.

it's strange how we keep meeting like this, Skywalker )
